Since I wasn’t able to attend NYFW this year (fiance’s bday + unpacking duties) I’ve partnered with Hanes Hosiery to give you an insider look some of my favorite items to pack. As you’re running to from shows to shows and meetings to meetings, there is not much time to go back to your hotel (or home) to do quick change or grab necessities. It’s all about improvising and making do with what you have on the go. Check out some of my packing necessities below, so next time you’re headed to NYFW you know exactly what to pack.
So honored to be chosen as one of Modern Luxury’s ‘Women of Style’ this year. It was such a fun shoot. From getting my hair and make-up done to being drenched in Liljenquist & Beckstead diamonds — it was truly a special moment. At times it can be tough juggling everything that I do, from being a consultant, real estate agent, and blogger — so it means the world to be recognized for it. Be sure to check out the September issue, available both in print and digitally here. It also includes a little tidbit of how my fiance and I met.
I discovered Tolani years ago at a small boutique in NYC when I purchased one of their iconic zig-zag scarves. Until recently, I had no idea that they made silk tunics too. With their bright patters and stand out prints, it’s truly a piece that is easily transitional from summer to fall. Also, be sure to check out these comfy Free People platform sandals — by far one of my MOST comfortable sandals I own (other great FP shoes here). Hope you had a great holiday weekend!
It’s hard to believe that September is quickly upon us. Soaking in the last few days of summer in LA before heading to Phoenix for some delicious Tex-Mex and much needed pool time. Hope you have a wonderful and safe labor day weekend. Also, don’t miss my Labor Day sales round-up below. Happy sales!
Excited to be partnering with Garnier Fructis again (last seen here), this time bringing you a sleek and straight look. When using a flat iron it’s really important to protect your hair with a heat protection spray, like this Sleek and Shine Flat Iron Perfecter by Garnier Fructis. Not only will this spray help protect your hair, it will also help keep it frizz free and straight with the help of argon oil (my absolute favorite). Check out my steps below on how to create a sleek and shine look that is quick and easy!
Since last year, laser cut-outs have been on my trend watch. I’m always on the hunt for fashion inspiration so when I recently spotted Beyoncé wearing this laser cut-out skirt I immediately went for it. Also, if you haven’t already be sure to sign up at LIKE to KNOW IT to shop my outfits and get my favorite picks directly sent to your inbox. It’s a great way to take advantage of all the leg work (and research) I do before buying something. Hope you’re having a great Monday!
You might remember, a few months back I attended (seen here) the grand opening of Blo in Dupont, which Whitney Port hosted. Last week I had the opportunity (and time) to visit Blo, which is only a block from where I live. I don’t think there is anything better than having a blow dry spot one block from your home, am I right? Not only are Blo hair stylists licensed hair dressers (ahem…some blow dry salons don’t require this) but they give amazing blow drys – just like my hair guru and best friend Mary Ann. If you live in the DC area be sure to give them a try, next time you’re in the mood for pampering yourself.
Happy Friday lovely readers! Sorry for the radio silence. After a week an Asia it took nearly a week to be free of jet lag. If anyone is looking for some helpful jet lag tips, this link really helped! Ok…now on to the fun stuff — before we kick off the weekend I wanted to share my video with Garnier Fructis and Mode Media on how to create messy beach waves — without using any hot tools. You may remember a few month’s back I traveled to NYC to shoot this video and it was just released today. I’m a little camera shy, so please be gentle in your judgements:)
