Holiday Sequins

 It's no secret that the holiday season brings with it lots of events that require dressier looks. While the wedding invites may be fewer, there are family parties, work events and visiting friends. I have been creeping on a few dresses from different designers and brands that I am particularly fond of, but also wanted to take the opportunity to get a little creative as well. I saw this dress from ASOS on Blair from Atlantic-Pacific and became obsessed with the vibrant sequins and the green color palette. Turns out I had a very similar teal silk fabric just sitting around in my sewing stash and decided to create a similar version of my own, just cause why not. A few clicks on Cartwright's Sequins and I was in business.

Sunday was a gloomy fall day and instead of staying inside to watch football, we made the trek uptown to visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I had been wanting to go for a couple months now, as I had yet to visit since I've been living in NYC full time. I found out a few days ago that a new fashion exhibit was opening and my desire to go got even stronger.

Recent Design Work

 While I was in college and afterwards when I was working in the fashion industry, I was constantly flexing my creative muscles and artistic skills. Whether I was sketching, selecting fabrics, creating color and inspiration boards or sewing, there was always a project to channel my creative energy towards. Now that I work for a financial services company, the daily creative requirements are quite different and I find myself needing another outlet to channel my creative interest. That is where this blog started from, my desire to create a place to channel my fashion interest and document my creative work.

Style Crush : Zanna Roberts Rassi

When I am looking for some style inspiration there are a few go-to muses that I always turn to time and time again to spark my outfit ideas. Olivia Palermo is the first of these style muses that comes to mind, who in my eyes can do no wrong sartorially speaking. She seems to have discovered the secrets to perfect skin, amazing hair and impeccable style, taking serious fashion risks and yet never taking a misstep.

Another style favorite that I am sharing today is Zanna Roberts Rassi. As a Senior Fashion Editor at Marie Claire and a style correspondent for E! News, staying on top of the trends is part of Zanna's work.

Shopping For : Cold Weather Jackets

 Life in New York City means braving the elements all. year. long. In the summer that means sweltering humidity and steamy sidewalks and in the winter that means frigid urban wind tunnels down city streets. Since most of us living in the city don't have personal cars at our disposal, air conditioning and heated seats are not part of the commuting experience.

Fall White

Everyone knows the old adage that says you can't wear white after labor day. In recent years however, winter white has made a comeback and the old fashion laws simply no longer apply. I love white jeans and think pairing them with sweaters, leather jackets and plaids looks great once the weather cools down. Black is an old standby but white looks fresh and modern.
