Obsession of the Week - Valentino Snakeskin Lock Bag

A simple pink bag with a gold chain handle and a traditional shoulder bag style could scream dainty, feminine and maybe, let's admit it, a little dated.  But this Valentino bag has the added elements of snakeskin, studs, and "lock" hardware to add just the right amount of detail to make it a bit edgy and on-trend.  Love it!

Perhaps a great Valentine's present?...hint, hint...

Designer Spotlight - Rebecca Minkoff

The Rebecca Minkoff woman is the ultimate cool girl, and her Spring/Summer '13 collection did not disappoint!  Overall, the looks in this collection were wearable and fun with an edgy-chic, yet feminine, vibe.  There were many themes such as floral prints; sport inspired styles; and references to the jet-setters and effortlessly cool girls of the 60's and 70's.

Below are 6 of my favorite looks from Rebecca Minkoff's S/S '13 collection.

Crazy for these looks below as I'm still obsessed with the Sport trend that was so popular last Spring!

As far as her amazing bags this season, to be continued in a separate post...

Looking forward to see Rebecca Minkoff's collection for Fall/Winter '13!!!

A night out & OOTD...

Ventured into the cold the other night to Jane, an American bistro on West Houston between Greenwich Village and Soho in Manhattan.  Fortunately, I had my new jacket on (previous post) to keep me warm!!

Pics from Jane.   
Yummy comfort food (rosemary fries are delicious!) in a casual, fun atmosphere.

What I bought...

Some of my most favorite and useful purchases are the ones that are not planned.  It is bitterly cold in New York right now.  That may sound rather dramatic, but I'm a cold weather wimp!  Anyway, saw this faux fur biker jacket and ombre scarf over the weekend, put them on and instantly realized how much I needed them this winter!  So, so warm, snugly...and chic!!

Obsession of the week - Black and White Striped Blazer

 This season and into Spring 2013, black is the new black and contrast (especially black and white) was, and is, a huge trend on the runways and on the street.  Totally obsessed with the black and white striped blazer, but not just any black and white striped blazer.  I'm talking about wide, vertical stripes on a fitted silhouette.  Love it and want one in my wardrobe...now...

The Black Fleece is actually navy and white, but the look is similar and a bit more wallet-friendly (it's also on sale!) than the 2 jackets above.


Have a great Friday!!!

Designer Spotlight - Marissa Webb

Marissa Webb is a designer after my own heart.  Her collection embodies a woman who is effortlessly chic with an edgy sophistication.  This woman is feminine yet strong.  In September 2012, Marissa Webb, a new designer, debuted during New York Fashion Week.  Below are some of my favorite looks from that first collection:

I especially love her use of leather in an otherwise conservative, ultra feminine outfit, and her graphic black and white looks.  Can't wait to see her presentation for Fall/Winter 2013!!

Obsession of the week - Vince Leather Jogging Pants

For pants, what could be better than mixing comfort with the edgy chic of leather??! Love these leather jogging pants!! They are cool, casual and chic all rolled into one.

Fashion tip: Make sure the fit is somewhat snug since they will stretch.  Looks best with tops that are short in the front (or tucked in) and long in the back.

Très Cool!

Happy Belated (or Bloated?) New Year!!

Painted on a building on Kenmare Street in Nolita...art or graffiti?

Clearly, I have already broken my New Year's resolution to be more organized as I am writing this post in the 2nd week of 2013.  Hope you are all having a great start to the New Year.  Mine started a little bloated from all the extra holiday eating and indulgences, but I have cleaned my slate and started this week afresh!
