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?!

tumblr_ni2xdceJqh1u7c0gio4_1280

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!

Deck The Halls in GX by Gwen Stefani!

There are very few things that a shoe obsessed girl like myself really wants to see under the tree come next week. I can only dream that good ol’ Saint Nick will leave me 30 pairs of new shoes wrapped in a majestic red bow. Hey, a girl can dream right?

While I am off in la-la-land, I still have to plan what I’m going to wear for the rest of the holiday sawrey’s coming up.

I ran across this pair of pumps called Ryoko and the Kurume clutch both from the GX by Gwen Stefani line exclusively at Shoedazzle.

IMG_7471

The shoes are to die for. I really did not think that I would love them as much as I do but they are perfect to #DeckTheHalls in for a holiday party. I’ll post outfit of the day pictures of me wearing these in a few days.

I’m still debating on the clutch though. I do love the different textures and the color-blocking which really makes it stand out. However, it is very slim and I have no idea what I’m going to fit in there.

What are you thinking about wearing to #DeckTheHalls?

New – Too Faced Sweet Semi Chocolate Bar Palette

When a Chocolate Bar meets a Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar….

IMG_1422

Too Faced Cosmetics recently released a new Chocolate Bar Palette – the Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar. Now normally I’m able to resist the urge to buy yet another eyeshadow palette that will most likely collect dust on my vanity, however, this right here had me going crazy from the minute that the press release was announced.

IMG_1421IMG_1420

The Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar (photographed above) was inspired by Too Faced’s Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow Collection. This Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar palette is a deeper, warmer version of the original coveted palette. Infused with the scent of sweet chocolate, this collection features 16 antioxidant-rich, cocoa powder-infused shadows in matte and shimmer shades with warm caramels, deep mochas, bronzy chocolate, and vibrant sugared blueberry hues. These rich, high-pigment shades are perfect for any season, and it includes a signature how-to Glamour Guide to help you get started with three eye looks.

I’m showcasing the original chocolate bar (photographed below) just in case you need to drop any hints as to what you may want/need for a holiday gift. ;-)

ShoeDazzle Winter Preview Sneak Peek

So last week, in the midst of the usual insanity, I had a Shoedazzle Winter Preview Video Conference aka a sneak peek at the new collection that is being released in a few weeks. You know it’s one of those Super-Santa-Silent-Sunset-Secret (shout out to Grey’s Anatomy) launch previews that I’m not allowed to discuss but O-M-G! I had to come and let you guys know to at least save your coins and any extra holiday gift money that you get because there are so many….just…so…many!

I think I’ve picked out 3 new pairs that must come home with me come January 1st, however, there is this one pump…in all her of deliciousness…that I will probably end up staying up all night until 3am PST just to ensure that I get her in all of the colors available.

It’s very rare for me to feel as anxious and giddy over a pair of shoes. I mean I love all of my shoes and each pair has a special story behind them but you know when there is a pair that just touches your soul? I haven’t felt a moment like this since I found my denim boot Zigi’s at DSW back in 2011/2012. So for me to feel like this just from seeing this “secret pump” in pictures and a video is like holy grail for me.

I wish that I could release the pics but trust me when I say save your money! Cut someone off of that holiday shopping list. I mean you only see them twice a year so do they really need a gift?

Be prepared girls!

I’m already planning outfits around it! Check out the details below…the only thing missing are those shoes!
