Friday Sass—American Dream

Hola peeps!  Happy Friday!  Today’s sass—American Dream is all about sleek, sex appeal.   This set was fun to create because it features gorgeous model Joan Smalls and the most American backdrop of all—NYC!  I love a jumpsuit and whenever I put one on I feel uber-chic!  There is no way that I can explain it but it is just one of my fave looks to rock.  It is perfect because they can be worn all season long and dressed up or down.  All you need is fab accessories to make it pop and you are on your way out the door.   On that note go out, have fun and sass it up this weekend…enjoy!

Pause for a Cause—Hurricane Sandy

Hola peeps!  I hope you all are blessed and safe.  Sorry for the delay in posts it is just that with the hit of the hurricane I haven’t felt much like posting fashion or hair news.  I promise to slowly get back in the groove of things.  In the meantime, I would like to remind you that help is needed not only here in NYC but also those affected by the devastation in Haiti, Cuba and the Dominican Republic so if you are able to donate please go to http://www.redcross.org/charitable-donations.  Thanks for all of your support!

Naturals in Ads—Refinery29

Hola!  I hope that your weekend is off to a great start!  Relaxing, cleaning and catching up on emails/SNC work is going to keep me busy for the next few days…all good :o)  Today I’m sharing two pics of naturals (atleast they appear to be) I spotted on Refinery29.  I adore this site because it has a bit of everything—fashion, travel, shopping, news and as of late hair!  Check out these two chicas with not only gorgeous tresses but cool style as well.


NYC Fashion’s Night Out

Hola peeps!  Slowly but surely posts from fashion week will begin to trickle in.  However, first up is FNO!  I dipped in and out of a few stores, I just couldn’t handle the madness.  NYC was filled with fashionistas with smiles on their faces, shopping bags on their shoulders and cocktails in their hands.

After work I sprinted to Lord & Taylor to see if I could catch a glimpse of Solange DJ’ing…FAIL!!  I searched every floor and either I was too early or too late….no sighting at all!  In the meantime I was able to snap a few pics of designer- Vince Camuto and editor Suze Yalof Schwartz to name a few.  As well as some crowd shots of the mayhem.

After leaving Lord & Taylor I then trekked it up to 34th Street to Macy’s.  I knew that it would be crazy but I didn’t expect to be at a standstill.  Walking was nearly impossible in there!  Trying to avoid the first floor chaos I went upstairs and stumbled upon the smooth sounds of violinist Miri Ben-Ari.  I adore her gorgeous curls.  Check out the shots…

The last stop of the night was Sephora and as the other stores—it was crazy crowded.  Music was blasting, make-up sessions were going on and shoppers were snatching up items by the bundle.  Here is a snapshot:

So there you have it, overall the night was fun but I can do without the madness.  I glanced in a few other stores but didn’t take pics.  I think next year I will try a different neighborhood like the Meatpacking District or MAYBE Soho **I heard the crowds were riot size there though!** instead of sticking to Midtown.  Oh and guess what—I didn’t shop at all.  Shocking I know!  How was your FNO?  Where did you go, what did you buy?  Tell all…
