I’m backkkk! Grad school + working has been rough, but finally I have some free time for blogging and its one of my 2013 resolutions to blog more so get ready for some awesome fatshions!
NYC is full force into winter which means the weather is in the 20s and 30s. But alas, it isn’t too hard to stay cute and warm. This winter NYC has been all about the FAUX-FUR statement coat. This hooded faux-fur beauty from ASOS was perfect for me, and very very warm! If I wear it over 30 degrees I’m going to be sweating! Some similar options are: THIS, THIS, and THIS.
I am so obsessed with the peplum trend! Peplum creates a beautiful feminine silhouette on all body-types and sizes. If you haven’t already gotten into peplum, get to it: HERE, HERE, HERE!

It is finally beginning to feel like fall in NYC! Bring on cute blazers, leather jackets, tights and layers because I’m sooooo ready for fall fashion. Sweater Weather=Best Weather. I’ve had these ASOS leggings for a while and they are so cute, I always get compliments on them. I also finally found a chambray top I like with this Forever21+ $25 find. Chambray top with leggings, cute boots and a statement bag!? Sounds like the perfect NYC fall uniform. I am teaching at a preschool this year and finishing up grad-school at night so this fall is all about being fashionable and comfortable everyday [working with four year old’s is a very messy job!].
P.S. I’m obsessed with these boots, prepare to see them all the time!!!

I am very patiently awaiting autumn, but I have to say, I am quite overrrrr the heat. Bring on sweaters, jackets, leather, boots, scarves… I’m ready! Here are some of my newest fall pieces to my wardrobe. This plum feather vest is amaze, and was such a good forever 21 find for under 30$. These bad bitch gold studded boots are officially my favoritest boots so prepare yourselves to see them all the time. Can we please talk about this perfect neon green Kate Spade bag [on super sale!] with gold hardware… it’s a perfect fall statement bag! I’m predicting that leather+gold+spikes+neon are still going to be totally on trend this fall. [P.S. Polka dots are forever timeless and always on trend. Always.]

Happy Father’s Day!!! To celebrate having the best Dad ever, my family went on a brunch booze cruise around NYC. I kept it casual chic and slightly patriotic with a red flowy summer dress from Forever 21+ and my favorite navy Jeffery Campbell platforms. The weather in NYC is finally perf, no jacket or sweater needed. Just a piece of advice, platforms might not be the best choice in footwear for going on a boat… oh well, they went nicely with the dress!

I know I’m super late on the neon trend but I was waiting for a really great neon statement dress… I found it! A neon pink skater dress with polka dot lace… could it be more me?!?!?! If only it had sparkles hehe. This dress seems like perfection but I had to get it tailored twice, it didn’t sit right on my petite torso [I’m 5’2”] and it needed to be taken in from the sides also. After all the tailoring I love it! I paired it with a black ASOS Curve bow belt and some fun Jeffery Campbell platforms.

What are your favorite neon statement pieces?!?!?!
This is going to be a mix of an OOTD and a beauty post! In this month’s BirchBox I was surprised to see these eye liner sticker things from Eye Rock. As soon as I saw them I couldn’t wait to try them on and tell everyone about them. I know many people have a hard time applying eyeliner pencil/powder/liquid but these stickers are very easy to apply! Peel the sticker and place it as close as possible to the lash line. If you leave a gap between your lash line and liner, just use pencil or powder to fill it. These are easy to apply but they do take some getting used to! They feel quite heavy on the eye like big false lashes, but if you wear them all night you do get used to them. Overall I would recommend them, they are really fun but trim them down to fit your eye shape and give it time for you to get used to them on your eye.
