What’s better than a traditional little black dress? A little navy dress! While I’ve fallen in love with prints and bright colors this season, there’s something so simple, sleek, and sexy about a clean, form fitting silhouette. The lines are flattering, and it showcases the woman’s figure much more than the dress itself.
We just celebrated the first weekend of summer, and it sure was adventurous! It was a gorgeous Sunday here in Manhattan. I spent the weekend, in the sunshine, shopping, attending a birthday party, and spent a fun afternoon at the Central Park Carnival. Yes, there is a carnival in Central Park during the summer, full of rides, games, cotton candy, and of course, ice cream! My summer in New York has felt like a stay-cation, so far. We’ve tried to do something adventurous each weekend, besides stopping by our usual hangouts. This weekend was the carnival.
To style my outfit for our fun afternoon, I chose a bright yellow fit and flare dress from Pookie and Sebastian. There is absolutely no way you’ll ever have a bad day in a bright yellow dress. The color is so happy. It attracts positive attention and usually a smile from others around you.

This Labor Day weekend felt like our own New York stay-cation, as my husband and I celebrated our first anniversary together. We went to The Standard Grill for a delicious brunch, Le Bain for drinks, and topped off our day with a fancy dinner at The Nomad. I highly recommend it, if you’ve never been. The food is absolutely delicious.
For as long as I remember, I have had a fascination with Swarovski Crystals. I am a girl in love with all things that sparkle, so it is only natural for all of my accessories to be crystallized, starting with my iPhone. I recently designed the Sunburst Chevron iPhone Case, created with Rose, Fuchsia, Citrine, Aquamarine, and AB crystals, organized into a chevron pattern. It takes many hours for me to crystallize these iPhone cases however in this video, you will get a quick, behind the scenes look at the creation of my crystallized masterpiece. The Sunburst Chevron iPhone Case can be purchased in our online shop.
Baublebar is one of my favorite accessory boutiques. It began as an online jewelry shop, but recently, Baublebar opened a pop up shop in Soho. This week, Baublebar had a fabulous DIY Swarovski event hosted by Grace Atwood from Stripes and Sequins. During the event, I purchased the Emerald Iced Bracelet, and was given a small, jewelry box to embellish with Swarovski crystals. I have a love for anything that sparkles, so you can imagine my excitement when I was able to crystallize my own jewelry box.
I recently had the pleasure of attending the Adam & Wyche Fashion for a Cause event at EVR, in New York’s fashion district. Adam & Wyche is a non profit organization, for bullying prevention.
When I was engaged, I spent months searching for the perfect bridal accessories to wear with my wedding gown. Oh, the options! I found floral combs made of crystals, pearls, intricate beading, brooches and feathers. This was my one and only wedding. My accessories had to be absolute perfection. Through my extensive search, I fell in love with these glittering, delicate combs. Inspired by my own bridal comb, I have created this lovely Vintage Floral Bridal Comb, handcreafted with Swarovski crystals, beads, and a crystal flower. Learn to create your own bridal comb for your special day in this tutorial.
One of my favorite parts of spring, is fashion transition. You’ve had it with your winter wardrobe and you are considering burning your winter coat. You may walk into a boutique full of colorful spring and summer merchandise, but yet you are still walking around that awful winter coat. As much as you may want to go on a spending spree buying all of these bright beauties, you realize that it will be a few months before the weather gets warm enough to wear them.
