Street Style Update – Lucky Charms – Do you have one?

Lucky Charms

I hope you all had a grand St. Patrick’s Day and are shuffling back to your daily schedules seamlessly. It was uplifting to see all of NYC come together this weekend to paint the town the same shade of Kelly green, and everyone adorning themselves in lucky shamrocks to celebrate. I, being the nonconformist that I am, wore my own special lucky charm – my lucky bullet, tucked neatly under my Confessions-of-a-Shopaholic-esque, festive green scarf.

Everyone who knows me, knows I wear my lucky bullet every day. Even if for some odd reason I don’t have it on, I still like to credit its existence for the good fortune that comes my way. People ask me “Why the bullet?” and I reply “Because it was there when I didn’t die.” It was one of those crazy NY movie moments that I’d have to explain to you over coffee. For a similar look to mine, try pairing a Donni Charm scarf with any one of Jennifer Zeuner lucky-charm-worthy necklaces.  (more…)

Style Cravings of Unique New Yorkers

Afaf

I woke up this morning with the sun streaming in my window reviving my inner 70s bombshell wannabe (hello Brigitte Bardot) and a little of Carmen Sandiego’s catch-me-if-you-can mystery while trying to hide under the covers for some extra sleep. What better way to satisfy my style icon craving than with a floppy hat? The hat, might I add, is the ULTIMATE understated, attention grabbing accessory. Everyone always notices the girl in the hat before anyone else in the room. A Lovely Bird floppy hat is an excellent choice for a look similar to mine or a Civil Clothing snapback for those urban glamazon days.

Back to my icon cravings. (more…)

Meet Our Newest Contributor: Afaf! Learn More About Her Through Her Closet

Afaf

I’m Afaf, a 21 year old fashion designer living in New York City pursuing my goals and chasing my biggest dreams. The usual response I receive after an introduction is “what’s a ‘faf’?” Allow to me to explain this and how I ended up in such a glorious arrangement.

Imagine growing up in the deep-fried-donut-burger South, and briefly in Egypt, with a diva, goddess-of-gaudy mother; two older brothers who I swear must have secretly and unintentionally inspired the “geek chic” movement; and a father absorbed in the textile industry. (more…)

Celebrate Friday with a NYC Cosmo

When I opened my Twitter app this morning, I read a tweet from Carrie Bradshaw (yes, I follow Carrie Bradshaw) and it couldn't have been more appropriate: "If Friday was a cocktail, it would be a Cosmopolitan."

Don't know what to wear? Our stylist, Casey, picked out a flirty and sexy outfit for a fun night out! Check it out below. (more…)

My Cyber Monday Wishlist!

Dresses

In my opinion, Cyber Monday is way better than Black Friday. I rather lay in my bed on my laptop and score awesome deals than wait outside on a freezing line for hours and risk not getting what I waited for. It’s also just so much easier and convenient. Take 20% off your SINGER22 order today with code: CYBER and it ends tonight so hurry up and go fill that shopping bag!

I put together my wishlist for Cyber Monday that mostly consists of holiday/winter inspired pieces. Take a look below!

  1. BOULEE Avery Lace Dress in black: A girly dress with sheer lace sleeves, a full skirt and an open back.
  2. Parker Geometric Beaded Dress: The perfect holiday dress with a rich hue, beading and a dropped waist and draped skirt.
  3. Elizabeth and James Lisette Dress: Body-hugging long sleeve dress with a layered tulle skirt.

Thanksgiving Day Outfit: Comfy or Chic?

Believe it or not, Thanksgiving is just a few days away! It's crazy how fast the time is going but I cannot be more excited for Thanksgiving. Besides my birthday (yes, I count that as a holiday) and Christmas, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday because I'm a huge foodie and there's obviously tons of food. The one dilemma I face is whether or not to get dressed up or stay comfy. My personal choice is to be comfortable because I like to just hang around all day and eat myself into a food coma. But for everyone else who wants to dress their best, we have some outfit inspiration for you! (more…)

We Can’t Get Enough of Metallic Cap Toes!

Shoes

Earlier in the season we started seeing a few shoes hitting the scene that had one thing in common: metallic cap toes. We recently got in tons of shoes that carry on this trend and I love it!

If you aren't into heels, we have sneakers. If you don't want anything too girly, we have platform booties. If you want something more sophisticated, try our suede pump! There's something for everyone. I think a metallic cap toe adds a little something extra to an otherwise ordinary pair of shoes. It gives bit a edge and makes a statement. (more…)

These Boots Were Made for Fall…& Walking

Boots

One of the best parts of fall, besides pumpkin picking and eating endless amounts of Halloween candy, is the fact that boot season starts! When the cold weather hits, my go-to outfit is a sweater and/or long sleeve shirt, jeans and boots. I just find them to be so comfortable and warm. Since I'm very short I feel like I'll get lost in a pair of riding boots, even though I'm completely envious of every girl who can wear them, so I opt for cutesie ankle boots instead. I've also been dying to wear a pair of awesome socks that peak out from the top of my boots and look effortlessly cool…but that's another topic.

SINGER22 has a great selection of ankle boots so I picked out a few of my favorites. I wish I could own them all but my closet is too small and I'm trying to save my money (so far, kind of good).

  1. Jeffrey Campbell Roswell Fringe Bootie in taupe suede
  2. Sam Edelman Louie Boot in taupe rose
  3. Jeffrey Campbell Prance Bootie in black suede
