Every year the fashion world (actually just everyone) looks forward to the Met Gala. It takes place at the Metropolitan Museum in New York City, and is a night of full blown fashion! Designers coordinate with the hottest celebrities, and fashion icons, and create unique things for this night alone. Every year has a different theme, this years was Manus Machina, the fashion age of technology!
I was a little nervous to see what was to come for last nights red carpet, but I actually liked what I saw!
My top 3 favorite looks had to be Beyonce, Claire Danes and Zoe Saldana.
I have actually NEVER seen Beyonce look bad at the Met Ball, or anything for that matter. So I wasn’t too surprised when she arrived and like “Flawless”.
Claire Danes really stood out to me because her dress actually lit up!!! Come on, how amazing is that!?
I wasn’t impressed by it until I saw the lights. I thought it was gorgeous, obviously, but didn’t go with the theme. But I was wrong, it was perfect.
Lastly, Zoe. This train on her dress was absolutely beautiful, no matter where this was worn it would have caught everyone’s eye.
That is was she did last night!
What were your favorite looks from the Met Gala 2016?!
Bomber jackets are the jackets to HAVE this Spring, and even next Fall. Celebs like Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid are even wearing them.
You can casually wear a bomber jacket with workout clothes, or jeans, or you can dress it up with nice pants or a dress and booties.
This bomber jacket can be found at TopShop. The metallic color gives it a cool edge everyone is always looking for when they wear these.
This one is from Nordstrom. I love how you can wear any type of outfit under a bomber jacket and still look like you put an outfit together.
Its one of those things that are very effortless and casual.
And for that, I am thankful they are easy to find and not too expensive!
This Spring and Summer, braids are THE hairstyle to wear!
French pig tail braids, braids into a top knot, braided crowns and more.
These looks are easy ways to pull your hair out of your face on a humid day, or rainy day– while still looking cute.
They last more than one day too! Sleep in your braids, and the next day they’ll have that messy relaxed look!
Since festival season is here, these braided hair styles are perfect for those as well.
Try one of these looks for any upcoming occasion, or any casual day… they work for both!
It is said, you should never wear white before Memorial day… it’s a fashion DON’T! Well, I’m saying it’s a fashion DO!
Over the years this rule of no white before Memorial Day has completely shifted in the industry. It was always a don’t do. Then it became acceptable only for certain white jeans, now, I say it is perfectly fine!
I probably wouldn’t wear an all white dress, like this one from Wow Couture, in the middle of the Winter. But now that the sun has been coming out, and it’s feeling like Spring weather… I say wear that little white dress!
Add cute little accessories to it, like I did. I added Stella Flame Jewelry silver bangles and my Henry London watch. Along with my favorite classic Chanel bag.
A little lace up, strappy heel never hurt anybody! If anything… they makes any look a little better.
Now that Spring is here it is easier to show a little skin, definitely at your ankles.
Every designer has taken this look and it their own, a strap up the ankle and a sexy look for any leg length and height.
You can wear these with a tight dress for a ladies night out, or with a casual pair of shorts or ankle length jeans!
There are peep toed ones, and point toe ones they even have chunky pairs or ones that lace all the way up to your thigh. Which are your favorite!?
It’s Friday, and the weather is beautiful! It’s time to take advantage and bring out the dresses for a good girls night out, or date night, whichever you prefer! As Lana Del Rey would say…”I’ve got my red dress on tonight”.
The perfect transitional dress in my closet is this Red, open back lace 3/4 sleeve dress from Wow Couture. The sleeves are good if it gets a little cooler at night, and the color of the dress is perfect for Spring time.
I accessorized with my favorite (as you know), Henry London watch and a pair of nude open toe pumps! Now, if you get a bit chilly since the weather this time of year, no matter how beautiful, changes like crazy… throw on a simple leather jacket! You can also add a black or a nude clutch so the outfit will be consistent.

A good watch is hard to find.. so when you find one hold on to it and cherish it!

It is FINALLY time to wear my nude Rebecca Minkoff leather jacket, without layers!
Although the weather isn’t completely warm… we New Yorkers like to pretend it is.
And since the weather changes daily, and even hourly, something light to wear is always best.
A nude leather jacket when its chilly requires layers, such as flannels or sweaters or other jackets under it.
Now, it is just PERFECT with a crop top! Like mine from Wow Couture.
A pair of my favorite black culottes, and black peeped toe pumps add a business casual flair to the outfit, which I love.
You can also easily wear this jacket with a little black dress, or go completely casual with jeans and sneakers!
