♥ OH ANTHROPOLOGIE HOW I LOVE THEE!!! ♥ Entering the store feels like you’re walking into an ultra chic and sophisticated Parisian woman's bedroom. The Anthropologie customer wants something "different" she doesn't feel the need to be wearing EXACTLY what everyone else is wearing, either. Understated, rather than obvious. The Anthropologie shopper is confident enough NOT to need the world to know where she bought her clothing or the dollar amount that she paid for it. At the Anthropologie stores, you won't find items that are inscribed with a designer's name or initials. The Anthropologie customer likes the merchandise because simply put, it's nothing less thand divine and exquisite. Anthropologie offers charming dresses that are never overtly sexy or body-baring. Floral prints, appliques, laces, velvets and dainty details can be found in many Anthropologie clothing styles which make every piece feel ever so special and unique.

On a breezy Sunday afternoon with a skinny soy latte in hand, there's absolutely nothing more magical than playing dress up at Anthropologie. Although their pieces are of high price points, which usually in my case means only being able to walk out the store with 2-3 pieces (usually I take about 10 garment pieces to the dressing room and fall in love with every single one) but alas I MUST practice self control and make a decision. If you ever have the opportunity, I highly recommend visiting the Rockefeller Center location in NY,(pictured below) words alone do not serve justice to the architectural structure and beauty of this location.

As an added bonus i've included some of my favorite catalog shots. Every month I wait anxiously for the delivery of my Anthro catalog. A girl can make a whole afternoon out of this experience, the exquisite photography depicting the fantasy lives on these women makes you want to be them and posses all their grace and charm, not to mention own their to-die-for ensembles.


I am definitely a girl whose loyal to her designers. Without a doubt one of my ultimate favorites is Mr. Marc Jacobs, the man can do no wrong. From the moment his diffusion line, MARC BY MARC JACOBS hit the runway in 2001 I have been obsessed. I adore the vintage aesthetic and girly details in all the pieces. His handbags are exquisite ( I own one in every color now, I know it's become an obsession). Just when I think that I've purchased the most beautiful bag that Marc Jacobs has designed, he goes on to prove me wrong by debuting an even more uh-mazing one. I recently invested in two amazing handbags for the upcoming season. The first one is the MARC BY MARC JACOBS 'Classic Q - Baby Aidan' Satchel , a beatiful Merlot leather bowling bag with matte gold-tone hardware and signature print lining, retail price $458.

I also purchased the MARC BY MARC JACOBS 'Twisted Q - Lil Riz' Hobo in black, retail price $428. It has a slouchy silhouette that defines a supple leather hobo fashioned with a twisted strap. The utility-inspired logo plate brands the banded top, cleverly designed with a concealed zip pocket. It's the perfect black go-to handbag that I can wear with everything.

If you are looking to invest in a handbag I highly recommend any MARC BY MARC JACOBS piece, the quality is unlike any other and it's definitely an investment that will last you a lifetime. HAPPY SHOPPING!!!


LOVE LOVE LOVE the fact that we're seeing sequins everywhere this season. Ladies, I know some of you might be receptive or even cringe at the thought of sequins, but trust me there are ways to wear sequins in a very edgy/modern way. Cardigans, leggings, shorts, mini skirts, and cocktail dresses are popping up in the form of sequins everywhere. No longer are sequins reserved just for Holiday Parties or New Years.

I recently purchased this Free People Zebra Slip Dress (pictured below) priced at a very reasonable $68 (available at Bloomingdale's and The sequins are of very high quality and make the dress look much more expensive than it's $68 price tag. They key to wearing anything sequin is to keep the rest of your ensemble minimal, let the sequins be the main focus (avoid looking like a Christmas Tree). I paired this Sequin Slip dress with black patent pumps and kept the jewelry very simple (small round disc studs and a chunky cocktail ring). SHINE ON LADIES!!!
