I’ve spent the last several years buying trendy pieces, and while those one of a kind items will always be a part of my wardrobe, classic pieces are the best transition into other seasons; the colder and the warmer ones.  Now you’re probably thinking, “what exactly do you consider a classic a piece?” and that’s a good question, so I’ll get right to it. The simplest way to identify a classic piece is if the answers to each guideline below is a YES! Does the color go with a variety of other items you own in your closet?Will the piece look somewhat boring by itself? Can this piece be styled in different ways? IE: can you wear it with sneakers, boots, and shoes? Is this item suitable for work, on the weekends, and a night-out? Can this piece be worn… View Post

Inside Soho’s New Department Store: LE BOARD

I always look forward to discovering new stores because shopping in NYC can be a little overwhelming…but when you’re surrounded by unique items and a cool aesthetic, it suddenly no longer feels like you’re scrambling to look for pieces in a room full of people.

3 Wedding Guest Looks You Should Own

I’ve had my fair share of weddings the last couple of years and as a guest, I’ve purchased a couple of dresses too. One thing I’ve noticed is that finding a dress for a wedding can be challenging, and if you have more than one wedding a year…dress shopping can get expensive. This year, I decided to repurpose as many outfits as I could so that I wouldn’t have to buy a new dress for every wedding. From the looks I put together, it was finally clear to me why I was able to re-wear them. Here are 3 dress styles and looks you should own for your next wedding: 1.

The Vintage & Antique Jewelry Store You Should Know About

I’ve spent most of my time shopping for clothes and handbags that I never actually dedicated time to buying jewelry.

It also didn’t occur to me that up until then, I hadn’t worn a piece of jewelry that was designed to fit me, and only me. Most of us don’t think to travel outside of NYC to find those one of a kind pieces, but if you could find them at a cheaper price…is it worth it? So there I was…off to Princeton, New Jersey (just 1 hour outside of NYC) to visit Hamilton Jewelers sister store, H1912. As soon as I entered the store, I immediately knew it was worth… View Post
