Is it Spring yet?

 Hello? Spring? Are you there?

Hi, it’s me Cynira and ummm..I was just wondering when I would be able to start wearing my open toe sandals and maxi dresses again? Oh and by the way, waking up to a sheet of ice on my car towards the end of March isn’t fun. -_-

Seriously, I am so over winter and it’s not even winter anymore! –Insert dramatic sigh– For now, the only thing that I can do is wear brighter color lipsticks and pretend that it’s 60 degrees outside.

What color lipstick do you have on today?

Little Miss Ally’s Farewell to Winter!

Even though the temperature is being extra sensitive this week in New York, I think it’s officially time to bid winter adieu.

So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodbye

Before I officially chuck the deuces up to winter, I asked my oldest niece, Little Miss Ally, how she wanted to say goodbye.

I want to rock out and wear my gold FabKids sequin fuzzy boots!

Rock out?

Yes Auntie! Play it loud, just like a rock star! Shout it out, just like a rock star! Come on everybody let me hear you say, you feel just like a rock star hey, hey, hey!

Oh. The Fresh Beat Band…Gosh she makes me feel old.

FabKids – Glitter Fuzzies Boots

“It’s always best to start teaching them young!”

In this case, I had to put that motto to work with my oldest niece and show her the true meaning of shoe love. She’s only 4 and a half years old but I can already see stilettos and high heels in her future.

Until she’s ready, I let her shop around FabKids.com so she can pick out her own boots and outfits. Here, she wanted to model her FabKids Glitter Fuzzies that she just had to have in every color!

“But Auntie, if I don’t get the pink and the gold ones I’m going to be SO upset! And I need to get the pink dress, and the pink bows, and the pink book bag and the-“

Umm, so no more shopping for her.

What have I done?

Is It Spring Yet? JustFab Sneak Peek

Spring…oh how I wish you were here now and would never ever leave again. Unfortunately, I’m a native New Yorker so I’ll be singing this same tune once winter leaves and circles back again at the end of 2015.

The only thing getting me through this blast – the exciting sneak peeks of the upcoming Spring launches of some of my favorite companies! Yesterday, I quickly reposted this photo taken by @rachelaschenbrandpsw, fashion editor at @peoplestylewatchmag, of the #StyleWatching preview of JustFab’s spring launch.

Sophia Amoruso Steps Down As CEO of NastyGal

 The official #GirlBoss herself has given up her role as CEO of NastyGal. Sophia Amoruso – the founder and creator of the Los Angeles based online fashion retailer took to Youtube to explain why she stepped down as the company’s CEO and promoted Sheree Waterson in her place.

Briefly, Amoruso explains that she wants to focus on connecting with the brands customers and she can’t do that while being in the office all day. Head to Youtube to check out the full video.

What do you think about this decision? Honestly, I think given some of the recent negative press Sophia Amoruso has received about laying off pregnant women, this might be a good PR move for the company all around. Let me know what you think!

Cool Girl Kicks – Jordan 4 Retro’s

Why couldn’t they have made these in actual women’s sizes?!

These girls Air Jordan 4 Retro “Fuchsia” sneakers are set to launch this Saturday, January 17th on select websites but only in size 3.5Y – 9.5Y.

Ever since 2011 and Maya Moore’s deal with Nike’s Jordan Brand, I’ve been looking forward to some fashionable Jordan’s that I could add to my street style wardrobe but so far nothing has hit the mark for me.

What do you ladies think? Will you be ordering a pair this weekend?

Here’s To a Happy New Year – 2015!

Normally, I try to avoid doing this when a new year rolls around but I figured this year would be the one and only exception.

For the past few years, I’ve been going through this transition with myself physically, emotionally, spiritually, financially (have I used every -ly word that I can to describe this change?). What I’m trying to say is that it took me a long time to find myself and basically what really made me happy as a person. Just me. Not anybody else. Not my boyfriend, not my parents, not my family, not my friends, not my boss. Just me.

While I’m sure I haven’t fully figured that out 100% yet and I’m still trying to find a balance for myself in the real world, I am excited about the progress that I’ve made so far and everything that I have planned for myself, my career and for you all!

So with that said, here’s looking at 2015!

Complete The Look! Splurge vs Save!

Happy Monday Loves!

As I spend time winding down and preparing for the end of 2014, I can’t help but think about some of the things that I want to leave in 2014 and all of the joy that I want to bring with me into the New Year.

For one, I know I’m going to start economizing my wardrobe. Now hear me out. All too often we, yes, we fashionistas, get too caught up in name brands and labels that we end up breaking our budget on clothes, makeup and accessories. Don’t get me wrong, I am a sucker for all things Christian Louboutin and every once in a while a girl has got to spoil herself but where do we learn to draw the line.

Sometimes I wonder why we get so caught up in labels? Is it the luxury of the item? Does spending $2,000 on a clutch really make an outfit look better than it does with a $40 clutch?

So because of this I’m coming to you guys and I want to know how would you complete this look. Would you splurge or would you save?

(Splurge) On the right side we have a pair of Jimmy Choo Anouk Leather Pumps, a Jimmy Choo Ava Leather and Snakeskin clutch and Jimmy Choo bangels. In order to complete this classic pencil skirt look with these 3 accessories, you would have to spend up to $2,000.

vs.

(Save) On the left we have a pair of Steven by Steve Madden Newbee Purple Pumps, a Steve Madden Zaharra Clutch and a Steve Madden two tone bangle set. In order to complete this classic pencil skirt look with these 3 accessories, you would have to spend up to $200.

The same outfit. Two different price points. How would you complete the look?

Let me know below!
