A Girls’ Night Out Clutch

During the work week, I’m your typically “bag lady” that carries around oversized shoulder bags and totes that can fit everything from my room and office in there. But I’ll be honest: when the weekend rolls around or I have a midweek date night, I’m usually tying my outfit together with one of the many tiny clutches that I have. Cue my new JustFab Mirage Clutch!

I picked out this clutch during one of my pre-birthday shopping events because of its very cool, casual vibe. I love how the snakeskin texture stands out against the gold trimming and Lucite top bow. Since it was date night, I finished my look with my Pave Perfection bracelet in Gold and designer essential glamour set from Yves Saint Laurent.

JustFab Annual Brand Ambassador Event

I hope you all had a beautiful start to the new week! You might be able to feel the happiness that is seeping through my keyboard and onto your screen as you read this. Yes, happiness waves!

I had an amazing weekend and I couldn’t wait to come back and share with you guys. So prepare yourself for a picture heavy post.

As a brand ambassador, I have the opportunity to work exclusively with brands on their social media and marketing teams in an effort to reinvigorate the brand and make it relevant and exciting to targeted consumers. In order to do that effectively, it is a necessity that you have a thorough knowledge and passion for the brands that you’re representing. So it should come as no surprise that I represent some of the best shoe companies and shoe clubs in the world.

This weekend, JustFab held it’s annual Brand Ambassador event in New York City. Ambassador’s from all over the world traveled to the city that never sleeps and it was nothing short of amazing. The event started Friday night with a Meet & Greet at La Biblioteca. There were cocktails, appetizers, tons of laughs and of course great fashion shoes.

The next day, everyone met up in Soho for a fun afternoon of team building activities. The Ambassadors were given a challenge to go out in the city and style an outfit for a mystery shoe. However, the catch was that each team was only given $40 to spend to create a stylish outfit with as many pieces as possible. That may sound like a challenge to some but being in New York, my team was able to put together two outfits with tons of accessories and still have change left over!

Once the challenge was completed, we all headed over to Dashing Divas for manicures and pedicures with a catered lunch by Cosi and drinks from Skinny Girl Cocktails!

The Week in a Recap

Well, this has been a very eventful week. My head is still spinning from trying to navigate my schedule around work, fashion week and all of the events, parties and deadlines that surrounds one of the biggest weeks in New York. Despite the long hours, no sleep and the humongous pile of clothes, accessories and make up scattered throughout my room, one thing remains the same… this week has been awesome and I can’t wait to bring you more news on the fashion and beauty trends during Spring 2015 Fashion week!

Bamboo Netty-01 Pump

A simple black pump is a staple in every women’s wardrobe. No matter the occasion, you can easily transition from day to night with the perfect black heel. That’s why when I spotted these Bamboo Netty pumps, I figured they would be a nice addition to my “desk-to-drinks” wardrobe. The thick heel and pointed toe were very unstated but would add a bit of sophistication to my look.

However, when I received them in the mail the next day, all of that quickly changed. I could not believe how uncomfortable these heels are. It took me forever to squeeze my feet into them and once I was finally able to, I ended up feeling like Vienna sausages trying to squeeze out of them.

Shoe details:
– Faux leather upper
– Pointed toe
–  4 inch heel
– Fit: Not true to size.

I can’t even recommend if going up a half size or a full size will help in this situation. After a size 10, most companies don’t make half sizes but I can usually tell based on how comfortable my feet feels in a size 10 shoe which would better – a full size or a half size. However, again in this case, because my feet hurt so much I would probably say your best bet is to go a full size up. 100% honest though? I would suggest staying away from this shoe all together and looking for a different black staple pump.
