Black Pant white lace top

Just because summer is here, it doesn’t mean that you have to put all of your black pieces in the back of your closet! I am a New Yorker through and through and ALWAYS have my black pieces on hand. I would maybe just trade them in for lighter more breathable fabrics. Striped pants are all the rage and we have been seeing the everywhere! I’m really digging the black and white vibe, it really dresses this look up and brings it together. Also loving this ring tote! It’s under $60 and perfect for any summer day and night!

Paris is Calling

Paris was calling! So, of course, I answered and bought a round trip plane ticket from NYC to Paris! In my early twenties I lived in Paris for about three years while modeling across Europe. I have such beautiful and fond memories of my time there and I have been itching to go back ever since. But as we all know, life just gets in the way and I hadn’t been able to make it back until recently.

I decided to venture back to Paris on a girls trip with the purpose of rediscovering the city in a whole different light. There is nothing like springtime in Paris and I was so excited to revisit my old neighborhood and retrace my 20yr old footsteps. Continue Reading

Makeup Monday- The Perfect Concealer

I will say it over and over again…Bloomingdales is the place to shop for not only clothing but all of your beauty necessities! I wasn’t thrilled with the previous concealer I was using so naturally, I hit the makeup department at Bloomingdales to find one that suits my needs. After trying on various concealers, I finally found the one that works wonders: Clinique’s Beyond Perfecting Super Concealer Camouflage +24hr wear. I love a conceal that obviously, conceals, but isn’t too heavy! You know how you sometimes try on a concealer and it just feels like you are putting on a pound of makeup? Not this one! This new product by Clinique is easy to apply yet lightweight but most importantly, it covers all of your imperfections and dark circles. This concealer is considered as a full buildable coverage concealer that stays put for up to 24 hours; creamy yet lightweight! I used the color moderately fair 14 and works great with my skin tone. Bottom line, if you are in the market for a concealer, try the latest and greatest product from Clinique, you won’t be disappointed! Continue Reading

The Denim Jumpsuit

I am a big fan of denim (we all know this by now). In fact, I wear it so much that I am constantly in search of new ways to style it out! When I saw this jumpsuit I knew it would be the perfect new twist on my classic denim on denim look. Believe it or not, it is extremely comfortable and ideal for a hot summer day. If you want to keep it a bit more conservative, you can always throw on a short sleeve tee underneath and it gives the outfit a whole other vibe! And can we talk about this fab bag? It’s only $50 and i’m obsessed because it matches with everything in my summer wardrobe. This will be your go-to bag all summer long!

Pretty in Polka Dots!

The last time I wore polka dots and thought it was cool was when I was in the 2nd grade. Who would have ever thought that after all these year, I would still be “cool” wearing polka dots! Polka dots are super on trend this season and I love this particular two-piece look.

Luxury- Sneaker Trends

Isn’t it mesmerizing the way in which fashion can take all of these amazing twists and turns? What was once considered old is now new and what’s new can become old again (dated) so quickly! There are numerous trends from the past that I still consider as fashionable. In other words, I can see these styles making a comeback in the fashion world. However, there are other trends from the past that I don’t consider fashionable yet they have become today’s most coveted looks. Cut to the latest footwear trend; the “Grandpa Sneaker” trends. Yes, you read that correctly! The big sneakers with thick soles and big arches are back and trendier than ever. I have distinct memories from my childhood of my dad wearing the exact same sneakers that have now been “revamped” by designers such as Balenciaga and Louis Vuitton. I’m pretty sure I recently saw a my dads sneaker in Fendi’s spring campaign…like almost identical minus Fendi logo. Umm, I seriously had to do a double take. Read my full post on Dot Luxury!
