Splurge or Save: Embroidered Leather Jackets

Mar 20, 2017

Embroidery its everywhere! Literally. On denim, leather, velvet, shoes, you name it. Last spring it was all about the patches and this year its all about embroidery. Ever since  Gucci's Spring 2016 runway show it seems all the retailers have been trying to remake the beautiful embroidered leather jacket seen everywhere.

I'm actually loving the embroidery trend, it just gives everything such a fresh update for Spring. You can easily buy a pair of jeans or a leather jacket with some cute embroidered flowers on them your wardrobe is updated for Spring just like that. You don't have to buy something super trendy you're only going where for one season. It is an update on classic items already in your wardrobe. If you don't want to spend money but like the trend, you can definitely buy embroidered patches that give you a similar effect and put on a clothing item you already own.

 Even shoes are getting embroidered as well. Thanks to Gucci too the black leather mules with embroidered roses are also being remade by retailers like  Forever 21. That's what I love about  Forever 21 that they're quick to remake something for the masses at affordable prices. Because lets be honest not every trend is worth spending hundreds of dollars on. 

With that being said I love that the  Forever 21 leather embroidery jacket is less but in this case I am in love with the  BLANKNYC one and I'm debating getting it. The embroidery just looks more subdued and organic and it goes well with the worn leather look I love.

Oscar Worthy Gowns

Feb 28, 2017

Let's be honest we mainly watch the Oscars for the drool worthy gowns and blinding jewels, at least I do. Also, to see Viola Davis give an acceptance speech because she gives the best ones. I thought there were many beautiful dresses on red carpet on Sunday but these were my favorite of all. Plus Jimmy Kimmel's getting at Trump and Matt Damon had me laughing the whole night. And lets not forget the gorgeous Ryan Gosling sitting in the front row that was definitely not a bad sight.

So This May Have Kind of Happened . . . 8.7.15

Sep 10, 2015

Pretty much the main reason I have slacked on this whole blog thing is because this little picture right here. You know no biggie just made a lifetime commit to another person nothing special or anything : ) But yeah planning your own wedding while working a full-time job and a part-time job on the side to help pay for your own wedding kind of takes a toll on you. I basically had no time to blog and when I did I wasn't inspired because I was so stressed and there was no way I was going to complain all the time to you guys. So, yeah I'm back at blogging slowly but surely. I'm going to take this blog in a new direction less fashion more lifestyle. There will still be a lot of fashion posts because I love all the aspects fashion but I've been interested in a lot more things lately that you guys will soon see.

Thanks for reading !

Lunch Break Craving: All Things Marble

May 26, 2015

 I'm just a tiny bit obsessed with all things marble lately. The print is just screams clean serenity to me and I love it anywhere from fashion to home decor. H&M currently has a whole home collection with this print that I just need. I kind of want to buy their bowls and plates to just for my dogs as water bowls and doggie plates. And then I want to use the marble cup a pen holder for my desk along with the frame. Basically I just want it all. Below are some links where you guys can get these items if you are into the marble print too:

Lunch Break Craving: The Fracture Dress

Feb 17, 2015

I don't know what it is about this dress but it just caught my eye. There is something 
so weird and unique about it I just love it. The colors seem off but for some reason
they work together. And I love any asymmetrical plus add the fit-and-flare and I'm 
good to go. Wish I could have this little number for lunch with my soup on the side
on this messy snowy day in New York today.

New TV Show Line Up !

Jan 8, 2015

Since the passing of the hilarious no-filter comedian Joan Rivers back in September fans of the 
Fashion Police have been wondering who can possibly replace Joan Rivers commentary. The new
season of Fashion Police begins on January 12 (my birthday) the day after the Golden Globes with
fashion experts Kathy Griffin and Brad Goreski. I will say I'm happy about this because if anyone
can compete with the late Joan Rivers commentary its Kathy Griffin. Plus Brad is too cute and too
funny as well. Can't wait to watch these four !

Younger is a new show on TV Land coming this March I am very excited about. It stars Hilary Duff 
as Kelsey (Lizzie Mcguire, I LOVED that show), Sutton Foster as Liza and Debi Mazar as Maggie. 
The show is about Liza a 40-year-old suddenly single mother who tries to get back into the working
wold but finds it impossible to start at the bottom at her age.While out for a drink a 20-year-old guy mistakes her for being younger and this inspires her to pose as a 26-year-old to get the job she wants with a makeover from her bestfriend Maggie. With the makeover and new found young confidence she lands a job with co-worker Kelsey to the career of her dreams.

What excites me more about this show is that directed and produced by Darren Star who directed 
Sex and the City and LOVED that show. Also, Patricia Fields who worked with Darren Star on 
Sex and the City as the costume designer will be the costume consultant on this show. 

Here's the trailer:

Hindsight already started yesterday and I missed it because I'm kind of binge watching Sons of Anarchy because I may or may not be addicted to Jax. Anyways, this show is also about getting
a second chance at life. The show begins with Becca (Laura Ramsey) on the eve of her second
wedding where she still has doubts about it. She can't help but keep thinking about changing 
things in her life and making different decisions. So she keeps thinking about her former 
best friend Lolly (Sarah Goldberg) who she had a falling out with and would like to talk to.
All of a sudden she finds herself back in 1995 in New York City the morning of her first 
wedding and she begins reliving her life again in the 90's while re-adapting. I don't know 
about you but I want to see some needs chic grunge fashion. Dr Martens anyone?


Watch these and take a little Netflix break : )
