Men's VIP List
Both Women's & Men's VIP List
You know when youâ€™re watching a movie and somehow everything seems to magically work out for the main character in ways that seemingly never happen for you? If your life is anything like mine, all your life changing opportunities are presented at the worst times. The cute guy is standing beside you in the coffee line and youâ€™re dressed like a bum, you get invited to the party/networking event of the century and you wonâ€™t have time to go home and change beforehand, Â Â your pants rip on the way to your interview, or your heels already blistered your feet and your date with your future husband has just begun.
The secret to having those perfect movie moments play out like your dreams is attention to detail and a good attitude. The smallest things can ruin an epic moment. Here is what you can do to prepareÂ (more…)
Shoes make or break an outfit. Even the most expensive wardrobe, when paired with the wrong footwear, tends to look a little less classy than it actually is. On the other hand, a good pair of shoes will take any well-fitting clothes to the next level. No matter how simple your clothes are, the perfect pair of footwear has the power to bring your entire ensemble together.
As it has been said from time and time again, â€œGive a girl the right pair of shoes and she will conquer the world.â€ With these things in mind, here are five classic shoe styles that help every girl organize a fully functional shoedrobe. These arenâ€™t called classics for reason. These are staples pieces that that transcend the latest trend. (more…)
Rain, rain go away come again while Iâ€™m on vacation in the Bahamas. Rain sucks. Unless youâ€™re trying to sleep or overindulge in carbs (guilty!), then itâ€™s the perfect motivation. The sidewalks in the city become filled with slow-walking, umbrella-carrying, rain-boot-wearing, frizzy-hair-having pedestrians that all have the same grimace as the horizontal rain sprinkles onto their faces, making their umbrellas mostly useless.
I was near the Meatpacking District meeting some friends for a lazy Sunday carb-loading Italian dinner (check out the tiramisu above) while checking out everyoneâ€™s drizzle style and taking creeper shots. The rain stayed at a consistent drizzle/fuzzy sprinkle all day so people were dressed across the board. I caught some overly prepared tourists walking around in their candy colored PVC ponchos who looked like they were ready for a monsoon, and locals who were mostly dressed in light hooded jackets, hats or completely unprepared as if it was just another sunny day. I met a group of friends all with their individual styles to combat the elements.
Hope youâ€™re all enjoying this extension of winter and know that the groundhog has been rightfully indicted (LOL). Check the news if you donâ€™t know what Iâ€™m referring to. Weâ€™re all still bundled up in coats and scarves in NYC. Try a SMYTHE blazer under a detachable fur coat collar for a look similar to mine.
A â€˜faux pasâ€™, as Iâ€™m sure you all know, is the refined French way that we like to refer to a social blunder. Because everything sounds better in French, including our embarrassing fashion mishaps.
So how do you avoid becoming a Fashion Faux Pas victim? (more…)
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 Sandiegoâ€™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…)
