Dress HOT for the Colder Months!


I love my friends. This is clearly an umbrella statement, but let me explain….. They are not only smart, vivacious people, but they are hot and know how to dress. Yup, I said it.

Meet Courtney. She is a fashion designer with her cousin Kathlin Argiro in NYC and has been my friend since the day we fell in love (in a friendly way!) about three years ago during a blizzard. We were the only two asses who thought it was a good idea to go out for a hard core night of drinking in dresses. She got stuck at my apartment for over 24 hours and the rest is history…..

As you all know, I hit the milestone of 30 this past week. I invited 17 of my closest friends up to a snowy lodge in Vermont to celebrate my new found wrinkles for the weekend. Now although Vermont is not known for its fashion sense, somehow my friends seem to work in a little sass no matter where we are. Enter this AWESOME ensemble. Now granted Courtney is 5’9″ and beautiful so she can pull off just about anything, but she really does rock this furry look. Everything about it is real and functional, yet stylish. Realistic fashion yo. Them is some kick-ass boots! She is just earthy and furry enough with a touch of femininity through her very pink pashmina. Everything about the look is loose, easy and fun, but it really does define Vermont snowy style without her looking like she is trying too hard. Remember folks, no matter where your travels take you, looking good is always a reality.

Cuff Me


So yesterday I was pulling for a photo shoot and I luckily stumbled into the Kara Ross showroom where I about near lost my mind. I get this way when I am around beautifully awesome things. Her collection was quintessentially my taste and appeared to have been created in my honor (as I fantasize most things are:). Mostly everything was over-sized and had some sort of bling aspect going on. I think I was drooling, very uncool for a stylist.

One of the fabulous pieces that actually jumped onto my wrist (I swear), was this amazing gold python cuff. Divine. As ya’ll know, I am all about statement jewels and this certainly lives underneath that umbrella. Talk about giving yourself a reason to roll up your sleeves!

The retail price-points are a little bit more than I usually discuss at $300 to $700 per item, but every lady deserves a few beautiful, well-made pieces of long lasting jewelry. Kara Ross should be that splurge. She combines materials that you wouldn’t usually think of including lava rock and petrified wood! That is not to say that she doesn’t love her pave diamonds too:) Do yourself a favor and check this jewelry out, you will most likely start drooling as well so make sure you are by yourself!

Give LOVE with this Necklace on V-Day

Valentine’s Day might be the most annoying creation that the card companies have ever come up with. I mean seriously, if you are single you want to use a butter knife (and not on butter) and if you are with someone the whole thing just seems contrived. With that said, I still want flowers, jewelry and the whole shabang of dinner. I am chick, what the hell?

I LOVE this necklace. With so many cheesy gifts out there to let your loved one know you love them, it is difficult for most men to find the right one. Of course, a beautiful, personalized gift of a fashion stylist to let your lover live like a celebrity is thoughtful and extremely creative…. Just a thought:)

Now if a more tangible (and less expensive, this is only $110!) item is more your style, jewelry is truly always a great way to go. This does not mean that creativity has to be thrown out the window! Search for something that no one else has that really shows off that you understand her personal style. Trust me guys, we REALLY appreciate you noticing how we put ourselves together.

This little bobble is a touch sentimental without being over the top ridiculous. It is a beautiful and dainty piece that clearly gets the message across. I like the combination of silver and gold together because it truly makes the necklace more wearable. Simple, singular charm necklaces are very big right now so it also hits the trendy mark.

Now folks, even if you don’t have that special someone in your life right now that does not mean that you can’t love yourself and purchase a little trinket to remember how freakin’ awesome you are. I think I have acquired most of my jewelry that way:)
