Wide Open Spaces

Do you ever just feel like packing your bags and shipping off to new horizons? There's something exhilarating about hopping on a plane and going somewhere new, somewhere you can get lost and if you're lucky enough, be found. I love how clothes can tell a story like that. The garments hanging in my closet aren't just pieces of fabric, they're memories. For me, this looks speaks to my inner free spirit.

HOW TO PULL IT OFF: Pair this drop waist dress with a deep red fringe handbag and wide-brimmed hat for a boho friendly look. Highlight your natural beauty with Nars blush, Two-faced blush and D&G lipstick.

Today's Look: Night on the Town

The other day I was walking in Chelsea when I came across Second Time Around, a consignment shop in Manhattan that sells high end gently worn clothing. I thought I'd step in and browse while I had a few minutes before I headed to the CEW Beauty Awards but what I found made my heart swoon. A spectacular gray beaded Parker dress was calling my name. So, I quickly snatched it up and headed to the fitting room. Just my size! I couldn't resist so I continued my love affair to the register. 

HOW I WORE IT: Perfect for going out on warmer nights ahead, I like the idea of pairing the dark gray with a pop of color like I've done here with my fuchsia lipstick. When I wear something embellished I try to keep accessories to a minimum so I've paired this look with fun earrings (made by local jewelry company, DavikiNYC) and kept the bracelets simple. If I'm wanting a more bid con look, I can throw on a skinny belt to draw more attention to the waist. A little blush and an opened toe sandal pump and I'm good to go! TAXI!

7 Reasons to Smile

I wanted to share my latest insta that I feel speaks true to the STS reader's aspirations. That being said, there's been a million things I've learned since graduating college and moving to New York City...like how to cook and honing a skill that I like to call having your "train legs" in order to maintain a vertical status whilst standing on a moving subway car. But above all of those have to be some of my most recent lessons which I wanted to share here.

Escape the Cold in Style

We all need an escape, especially during these chilly winter days! I crafted these looks while imagining a far off wonderland (much unlike the current state of my heatless Manhattan apartment) where there's no snow or rain but great style and mermaids to swim with. In my world there's an abundance of Gucci, zebras wear crowns and calories are nonexistent. So come sail away with me!

Zélé Mag Nov/Dec Spread: Pretty Odd


he finds unique ways to make the unusual incredibly chic. She's a hopeful romantic with a bit of a dark side. Her favorite movie? A tie between When Harry Met Sally and Beetlejuice. Her beauty ideals didn't come from the pages of Glamour but instead were formulated in a lab somewhere. No, she's not your average pretty girl...she's odd to say the least.

Very excited to share with you all one of my recent styling projects which was published in the latest anniversary issue of Zele Magazine (pages 38-47)! Special thanks to the awesome team for helping make this vision come to life!
