Lace on Lace in Firenze

Oops, I'm a bit behind on updating my photos from Florence but better late than never! My sister Dani took these photos on our last day in Florence. I actually wore this same lace on lace ensemble for my Botkier shoot and loved it so much that I brought it with me to Italy. 
The weather in Florence was overall beautiful and sunny with this day being the chilliest (although not that chilly.)
The hotel we were staying at (seen here and here) was truly magnificent and like something I've only seen in movies. I probably could've shot a years worth of outfit photos just at the hotel since there were so many great spots to shoot at!

A Blue Winter

(Vintage Nifty Thrifty coat, H&M scarf, Rugby by Ralph Lauren boyfriend jeans, Marie Turnor "La Rue" bag, "Natalie +  Dylana Suarez x Modern Vice" VINTAGE BENNI's)

Some winter days are meant for extremely oversize boyfriend jeans, and boxy coats, because guess what, it's THAT cold. Slipping and sliding through the ice, I had just come out of a shoot, and honestly, after anything revolving around posing in little dresses, all I want is to throw on something HUGE and cozy right after. Plus, I left on the killer cat eye the makeup artist did on me...if only I could do this every single day and perfectly, but I'm getting there! Anyways, I was that blue dolphin chick on a pizza hunt in my neighborhood of the East Village. I love my new home. Our new apartment is so so so cute and cozy. I'll try to have images up soon somehow, but we've still got loads more decorating to get too. Work weeks, combined with weekends doing mooore work always get in the way! It's all worth it though, lots of really cool features and work coming your way in the coming months. For now, I'm still on the hunt for that perfect bedspread.

Don't forget to sign up to my vintage heaven, Nifty Thrifty, where I scored this killer coat in their Brooklyn warehouse. I can't wait for my next visit.

Blazer + Boyfriend Jeans

Taken a few days before my trip to Aruba, I wore this outfit to several design meetings and job sites. I'm kind of obsessed with these boyfriend jeans. When I first instagrammed them I had a lot of comments saying how unflattering the jeans are for my figure but for me, I'm not always thinking of different ways to show off my body or figure. I guess it threw off some people since these are a bit baggier than my other boyfriend jeans but I love the fact that it's really like a pair of boyfriend jeans. 

What do you guys think? Are boyfriend jeans, yay or nay?

Calm Waters in Bal Harbour

Ok, these are the last photos from Bal Harbour, Florida. There were so many picture perfect moments here and it was definitely an amazing getaway that I will always remember. It was bittersweet to have only stayed there for a couple of days but it was a mini getaway that I definitely needed after all of my crazy work hours and traveling. A huge thank you to The St. Regis Bal Harbour team for having me and treating me like a queen. (P.S. Have you guys entered the St. Regis Grand Tour Experience Contest yet?)
After I got back from Florida, I stayed in LA for a week and took an actual vacation with my family to Aruba! January is full of tropical beachiness for me!

Hoping wherever you are, you're all staying warm and dry! Thanks for stopping by the blog! xo

Taper Jeaned Girl


I gave in, I'm now wearing tights under my skinniest of jeans during the day, yet trying not to give in to hibernation at night. I can feel the chill down to my bones! Anyways, I'm become a sucker to the cropped camo jean (well, cropped on me), and little oxford shoe. Say hello to our newest creation, the VINTAGE BENNI shoe, aren't they rad?! Every step feels that much cuter in them. Lord knows we've got some cool things cookin' up at the factory. Paired with a western fringed blouse, and brown toned coat, I feel like driving out far away to the mountains or something, to huddle by an outdoor fire. A girl can dream right?! Anyways, it's back to the NYC grind just before what is lookin' like a crazy busy February (oh, and fashion week). Bring it on.

St. Regis Bal Harbour + A Contest

In between all of my travels and crazy work schedule, I went on a weekend getaway to celebrate the Grand Tourista Bag designed by Jason Wu for St. Regis Hotels & Resorts as seen on this post.
I can't really pinpoint what was my favorite element of the hotel as there are far too many elements that I loved. As an interior designer and a frequent traveler, I see so many different hotel designs and the design and amenity of the The St. Regis Bal Harbour was beyond superb. 

The design of The St. Regis Bal Harbour is the epitome of a luxurious beach hotel that was very well thought out. From the glamorous mirrored entrance to the soothing yet non boring color scheme of the hotel that was a slightly muted purple integrated with neutrals, so much of its design relates back to the beach. Even the stone used throughout the entire hotel seemed to have been inspired by the sands of Florida, giving that beachy feel. 

This getaway was a dream for me and now you have a chance to win a St. Regis Grand Tour Experience! Check HERE for info on how you can win!

Rock n' Roll Love

Photography by Kelsea Kosko

My boyfriend and I rarely have images together, and so my good friend and brilliant photographer, Kelsea, thought why the hell not bring us into her studio and get the deed done. All styled by both Jordan and I, it was a quick and killer shoot. Jordan is a rockstar on his own, now isn't he?! Being one of the brother-duo masterminds behind Modern Vice, he brought along all of our latest MV JETT collection shoe designs to pair with vintage frocks, destroyed denim boyfriend jeans, and numerous hats. The flared jeans just happen to be my favorite...I mean, I had to throw in some hippie love! So there ya have it, my first couples shoot. I love seeing Jordan here, looking so high fashion, when he really is a complete goof. I can't wait to get these in print! And it's true, all you need is love.
