Hey my loves! Let’s start the year off right with some of my top picks in fashion, hair, and beauty for the month of January!

Pictures129Many stores are releasing their spring clothes, but we all know that it doesn’t get warm until the end of April/May. March feels like winter to me so I will still be wearing my sweaters and riding boots which is why these are my picks for January. I love the print on the Fair Isle Sweater from Forever 21 and I was sold on these riding boots with the chain detail and mixed textures. You can never go wrong with a satchel bag, and this Rachel Zoe bag is sleek and chic! A statement necklace can glam up any look this can even be paired with the pink cable knit sweater. Lastly, the CoverGirl Blast FlipStick Duo in Flashy is one of my favorite lipsticks. It’s a highly pigmented purple and I use the pink for a little ombre look. It is long lasting and even acts as a lipstain!

So 2011 is quickly coming to an end and if you still have not found the perfect outfit from any of our previous posts then maybe seeing the outfits put together will give you inspiration.

When it comes to dressing for a New Year’s Eve party you want to pull out all of the stops. Depending on if you are going to an upscale event at a fancy restaurant or club, or if you are going to bring in the new year with a classic house party you want to make sure you look your best, because you know what they say, the way you leave is the way you enter and you want to make sure you leave and enter FLY. Whether you want to go for the glitz and glam look with metallics, shimmer, and sequins, or the classic fierce look with an LBD we have something for you.

So check out these looks and we hope they will (Click on any of the images for a closer look or hit the arrow to scroll through the looks)


So if you follow me on Twitter you would have seen a few of my Instagram updates from my test photoshoot this weekend. I had a lot of fun and look forward to more shoots. Usually Rob and I would go to brunch on Sundays, we haven’t in a while but we did manage to have a LATE brunch with unlimited mimosas. We got to El Pollito Mexicano around 3:30 and brunch was over at 4 so we just made the cut off point. Anyway check out what I wore.

What I Wore

I love the black and white shot and my hair is growing back so beautifully! I am super excited.

  • Watch New York and Company
  • Wedges random boutique in Brooklyn
  • Necklace Jewelry District near Herald Square

I love this shot! I was really stopping traffic…only for 2 seconds though. I have been practicing poses so hopefully you will see less of the arm action lol.

This past Sunday I woke up late and and heard the weather. They said it was 52 degrees outside. I was not in the mood to put on a dress or a skirt so I pulled out my wide leg jeans that I recently purchased from T.J. Maxx for $3 on the clearance rack. I always gravitate toward dark denim and when I saw they were my size and wide leg I was so excited. I was even more excited when I got to the register.

Because it was so chilly, I threw on a black blazer and cuffed the sleeves

I had on a pair of 5 inch BCBGeneration tassel heels that I bought a few years ago from my favorite shoe store that closed down :-(. The pants were so long you couldn’t see my shoes lol

I wore a pink, silk tie front blouse that I bought from Beacon’s Closet

I got tons of compliments on my statement necklace.

It came with matching earrings, but I chose to go with my silver nugget post earrings.

This is outfit always works if you are unsure of what to wear, but want to look polished look.
