Gigi Hadid is an international supermodel; she’s hard-working, success-hungry, and only 19 years old!!! New York Fashion Week is coming to an end, and Gigi is back to relaxing in her home town with sister, Bella Hadid. But, during Fashion Week, Gigi even walked 3 shows in one day, including: Tommy Hilfiger, Michael Kors, Jeremy Scott, and Anna Sui. 

Not only did Gigi rock the runway, but she looks incredibly fashion on the freezing streets of New York. Gigi attended the Diesel show and the Tory Burch show, rocking both designers; she also looked fantastic in a Burberry assemble.

NYFW: Stella McCartney Inspired OOTD

NYFW street style will, without a doubt, blow people away this February. With the cold freezing bones, and a few wind gusts here and there, everything in a person’s closet will be in use with a big coat. Here are a few outfit ideas using Stella McCartney that could be seen on on the streets. Tee Dresses, platform shoes, and open-vcut blazers are extremely in this summer. (PS: you don’t want to be in 27 degree weather in these outfits without a large coat)Screen shot 2015-02-09 at 10.30.06 AMXOXO

Arm Candy is always fun, and 2015 is full of it!

Most high-end designers are using cuffs to promote this spring lines this year. Fendi is all about the Fur monsters, Balenciaga with it’s chunky metal and python, and even Alexander McQueen with it’s famous silky leather and silver skull. Louis Vuitton has even gone out of it’s way to make over 50 variations of leather cuffs. Here are a few of my favorite!

Prom: Around the Corner

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Prom is around the corner, and I am finally a senior. With the new year came sentiment on my last year in high school; unfortunately, prom-dress craze arrived as well. Even though it’s EXTREMELY early in the year, girls are stressing at incredible levels about prom, so I’m going to try to help them out.

The first thing to think about when selecting a prom dress are the two C’s: Color and Screen shot 2015-01-21 at 5.41.02 PMCut

– If you want a specific color, that cuts your options by 1/10, and that’s incredibly helpful.

-If you want a leg split, an open back, or even a low V down the cleavage, you options also significantly shrink.

Now, once you now Color and Cut, you can find a price range and start looking!

If you dont want to spend more than 800 dollars, do not go on Saks or Neiman. Your best bet is to try Revolve, BCBGMAXARIA, or even Nasty Gal. I would stray from Prom Girl and Sherri Hill

Now, it’s time to accessorize. Shoes come first. When purchasing shoes for prom, the most important thing is comfort. The easiest way to assure comfort is platformed heels. Here are a few options that could amplify your height, and keep your feet happy.

Then comes the bag. The best way to not lose your bag, is to use a bag with a chain or strap. I recommend using a side bag that could reverse as a clutch for pictures. For example, the YSL chain bag, the Jimmy Choo clutches, or the small Chanel.

Jewelry is very personal. But you get the point. Prom is extremely stressful if you are not prepared. Also, you dont have to splurge on bags and shoes!! These are simply example of shapes and colors that would be to your benefit.

Christmas is only one day away, and I know some of you are struggling to buy gifts for your loved ones! Lucky for you, I have the perfect range of inexpensive to splurgy gifts for anyone.
First, a basic colored top will always please a person. Free runs are also a popular nike shoe that could be used for running or a walk in the mall. The LV special edition key chain is perfect for any Louis Vuitton lover, and the Michael Kors Darci watch is delicate and wonderful for any woman.
Next, the Balenciaga Giant Stud bracelet is the perfect pastel, the “so Real” Christian Dior sunglasses are on the top of any fashion lovers list, the Coco Chanel perfume is a must for anyone (and men can wear the Homme version), and the Chanel boy wallet is a splurgy item that will make any woman cry tears of joy. The LV chain bag is plum is absolutely gorgeous; it is on the expensive side so this gift is for a wife or girlfriend. The Chanel espadrilles are any teens dream, every girl needs a red polish, and a fun cellphone case is a perfect stocking stuffer!Last Minute Christmas Gift Guide

My Black Friday Experience 2014

Black Friday is a tradition for me whether it’s with a family member, a friend or alone; this year, I did all three!

My Black Friday experience began on Thursday, the day of Thanksgiving. After a wonderful meal with my family, I headed over to Aventura Mall. For those locals, you know how fantastic the mall is; and for others, let’s just say you have over 500 options of incredible stores. I arrived around 10pm, when only a couple stores were open for presale.

Screen shot 2014-12-02 at 7.53.37 PM

Screen shot 2014-12-03 at 1.45.47 PMI was able to get some plain white tees at H&M for $2.95, and was able to browse Urban Outfitters at midnight, Unknown and Victoria Secret. I left around 1am and headed to catch some rest for the heavy day ahead,

On Friday, Black Friday, I woke up around 6am and headed back to Aventura mall. My targets were Bloomingdales, Nordstroms, Saks, Unknown, and high end stores to see what they offered.

I went straight to bloomingdales and hit the jackpot! The sales were insane, especially because i am a B Insider. High end jeans were 99-150 from 300+, the coats were 50$ off of every 100$, the sale section was an extra 40%-50% off, and much much much more. I was flustered but excited. For every 100$ spent, Bloomingdales gave you a 15$ B card. (Everything was purchased for great prices for the actual value of the item)

AT BLOOMINGDALES I WAS ABLE TO GET:

A pair of Paige distressed black jeans

2 winter coats

Prada candy perfume

Free People Brallette

Then i proceeded to Unknown and got a large men’s floral teeshirt that i wear as a dress. I also purchased a sweater dress at Urban Outfitters.

Black Friday was fantastic and so was Cyber Monday in my case. I do think most stores lacked sales for Cyber Monday though.

Look at my follow up on Cyber Monday soon

How to Style : Gucci Soho Bag

Tags

, , , , , , , , , ,

Last week I picked up the new Gucci Soho bag in red! I wore it for the first time yesterday to Bal Harbor and I must say, it’s very fun to style!

Here are a couple outfit ideas that could make the bag the bold statement! I am also loving the new Givenchy pin heel in white and black, the new “the real” Christian Dior mirrored sunglasses, and the new collection Rag and Bone tee dress!

And this is how i would potentially style the bag if i wanted to keep the bag as just an accessory, not the star of the outfit

My Halloween Outfits of This Year – A Calvin Klein Boy and Ester The Orphan

This year, my school had homecoming precisely the week before Halloween on Friday the 31st of October. Our Wednesday theme was movie characters, and my senior grade was assigned “thrillers”. Being that I somewhat resemble a little girl with my Miley buns, so i decided the best outfit was Ester from the scary movie, The
Orphan. Here is my take on the character!

Screen shot 2014-11-05 at 8.51.40 AM

And here is a picture of the actual character, Ester.

Screen shot 2014-11-05 at 12.04.57 PM

The night of Halloween, I went out with some friends to a halloween party and decided to be the person i’ve always wanted, A Calvin Klein boy model. I wore the #mycalvins set of boy shorts and bra in grey, with some boy shorts, and a white ribbed crop top from TopShop. I also added a vintage Christian Dior jacket with the outfit last minute because it was somewhat chilly at night. I wore my hair in buns and a pair of adidas classics with crew socks.

Here is a quick mirror picture of my outfit of the night! I always enjoy choosing someone or something unique to be, and see the final result of the pieces i put together! (the Moschino mirror phone case was a bad choice)
