On a beautiful, sunny Saturday, I took my usual stroll through Central Park. The excitement of the warm weather, was ideal for my new sundress. I fell in love with this printed beauty, during my shopping trip to Los Angeles, the bright colors and gorgeous florals caught my eye.
Dressed head to toe in spring brights, including a hot pink dress, featuring the Calypso Statement necklace I designed, and my Badgley Mischka gold open toe pumps, I headed to the Meatpacking District. I accessorized with an electric blue envelope clutch adorned with gold studs. Inspired by a bright spring sorbet color palette, I used pinks, coral, aqua, and tangerine dyed jade beads along with gold crystallized glass to create the Calypso Jade Necklace. The beads were suspended from a multi ring gold chain. This gorgeous statement piece was a fantastic addition to my dress.
Last Saturday, I was thrilled with the statement necklace I had designed for my spring inspired photo shoot. I had an outfit, shoes and bag styled and ready to go, until I looked out the window. In all of my excitement in planning for the shoot, I had barely noticed the sprinkling white snowflakes outside. The snow, had ruined my completely lovely idea. Ok, think fast. I’ve always been inspired by beautiful, wintery photographs. I decided to take advantage of the snow, and shoot the photos in Central Park. Wearing a burgundy peplum dress, black tights, stiletto boots, and a fur trimmed cardigan, I set out to explore the park. The Golden Circles Necklace and the Gold Rose Cuff, I designed perfectly accessorized the winter ensemble. Lost in the beauty of Central Park, I spun my red umbrella, took in the moment and enjoyed the snowy surprise.
It was Saturday night, and I was out on the town. First to a delicious dinner, and then to a favorite lounge in NYC. I sat in front of the giant glass windows, overlooking a picturesque view of the city, and I happily sipped my perfect jalapeño margarita. The gorgeous view of the city, flickering in lights was enough to distract me from my conversation. The music was loud, with men and women soaking up every beat. Then there it was, right in front of my face. A stunning red dress, which was enough to distract me from the glittering city view. A girl with the most beautiful red dress, twirling around the dance floor. I noticed all eyes were on the girl in red. You couldn’t help but stare. Was it the bold red color? The twirling? Or was it her extreme confidence that drew you in? It was the color red.
Life is a celebration and I look forward to the party. I do not save outfits with tags still hanging in the closet. I wear stilettos to brunch, sequins to work, and my brand new bag is slung over my shoulder the moment I leave the boutique. In my life, every single day should be special, adorned with statement necklaces, chandelier earrings, and maybe a glass of champagne. When I receive an invite to a party, I’m already dreaming of that perfect dress months in advance. It isn’t just about the outfit. It is about my love for prints, the perfect color palette, the shoes, the bag, and of course, the accessories. Above all, it is the creation of an entire look. My life is inspired by my 90 year old, glamorous grandmother. Life is short, wear sequins and enjoy the party.
