My Personal Style Journey: Florida Meets New York

Mercedes-Benz fashion week has been an experience that I will never forget and will look forward to experiencing each year. I came to New York with a specific goal and schedule and that all changed the minute I landed. My schedule went from tamed to deranged upon meeting some truly amazing people! Through my new-found connections and friendships I was able to attend twice as many shows and events than I originally planned.

Anywho those reviews are to come shortly. I did a terrible job of shooting the looks I wore as I beat the pavement throughout the streets of NYC, so let me apologize to you all now. I did however get the chance to take a quick shot of what I wore on one of my adventures at the Lincoln center.

I took the opportunity of being in New York to finally get a chance to wear my fur coat! Of course I wanted to show off my Floridian roots, so I made sure to keep it bright and cheerful. I pulled out my most colorful articles of clothing and mixed them with basic neutral pieces, my leather pants and wedge booties. Some may think that these colors are more appropriate for spring, but experimenting and wearing what you like is key. Wear what you feel and trust me it will all come together. I hope you guys like it!

Thanks for stopping by.

Let Me, Help You:Sequins aren’t for Everyone & That’s OK!

For this Let me, Help you post I wanted to answer a question that a lot of people ask me, “what can I wear for New Year’s Eve other than sequins?”. Yes, it is true, there are some people who are just over sequins after the Christmas Holidays and want to try something a little different for their last night in the current year. If you are one of these people, here are a few additional options for your last night in 2011.

metallic new year

Metallic options are great for those that want to shine and not sparkle. Finish your look with  a super sexy heel and add a pop of color with an accessory option, as I did with the turquoise earring.

all white new year

Want to be an attention grabber? Then this all white look could be for you. You will certainly  stand out with a crisp all white look and to keep it festive accessorize with silver accents. Top off the look with a lot of drama adding a fur coat and if you like, a pop of color on the lip.

print new year

Show off your fun side and swap out those sequins for a bold print. This look will keep you flirty and fun and the life of the party. Accessorize with neutral accents that complement your pattern and its colors and keep the fun going with a complementing print, such as cute checkered clutch in the example above.

Hope this gives you guys a few great ideas of how to boycott those sequins fabulously!
