Currently Obsessing Over…….OPALS

Screen Shot 2015 07 08 at 8.34.16 PM Currently Obsessing Over.......OPALS


Ever since I was a young girl, I have been absolutely obsessed with opals.  I think it’s the numerous colors inside the stone that seem to shoot out like beams of light in every direction. Opals remind me of the universe, caught inside a small bubble.  There is definitely something mystical and mysterious about opals, and that’s exactly what draws me to them. It’s for this reason that I am loving all the opal jewelry that I’ve been seeing lately.  From delicate stacking rings, to stud earrings, and to larger statement rings and necklaces, opals seem to be everywhere lately.  (or maybe I am just looking for them! lol)  Above are some of my picks for delicate opal jewelry. In my opinion, Wwake is doing the best job of creating gorgeous, special, understated opal jewelry that showcases the beauty of opal, without being too “over the top.” It’s perfect for daily wear.   The designs on these pieces are amazing.  They’re  great for daily wear, the beach, and nights out! Links to everything below!

FIRST ROW: (From left to right)

1) Wwake Opal stud earrings

AND……if you are looking to make a bigger statement, and want a stunning opal ring that won’t cost a fortune, look no further than SAMANTHA WILLS!  I fell in love with her gorgeous signature Bardot Ring, available in this stunning opal for a limited time!! Sadly, it’s sold out now, but it’s not too late to get on the wait list!  Also, check out her other incredible Bardot rings HERE!

Cool Summer

NEW Cool Summer

The colors of the flowering trees this time of year are stunning!

 Cool Summer(Pictured above: the incredible authentic Greek food at Taverna Kyclades in Astoria)

I have a love/hate relationship with Summer in NYC.  On one hand, I love the blooming flowers, the longer sunny days, and dining outside in the evenings.  But, NYC is also well known for it’s suffocating humidity.  Thankfully, we have been experiencing a milder Summer so far, and some days have even been cool.  On one of these cooler days, I met my best friend Debbie for lunch at Taverna Kyclades in Astoria. This Greek heaven usually  has a line down the block, with people waiting for at least an hour on average to get in on busy nights.   They don’t take reservations, and they don’t have to.  It’s simply the best, most authentic Greek food in Astoria.  They are also known for their extremely fresh fish, with the selection changing daily. If you’re in the Astoria, NYC area, definitely stop by!

I like cooler summer days. It gave me an excuse to wear my beige Theory coat. The color is perfect for Spring/Summer, and it’s just the perfect weight. Details on everything below!

Colorful Leather Jackets For Fall

c600x763 Colorful Leather Jackets For Fall

I am sure everyone is being bombarded with gorgeous chic black leather jacket options for Fall, so I decided to showcase a fun, and bright alternative.  Ditch your regular black leather jacket for some color!  Just because the weather is getting cold and dark, doesn’t mean your wardrobe has to match! Spice things up with a splash of color, and beat the coming Winter blues!

Here are some of my current favorites! All links to jackets are below!!


First Row: (Left to right)

1) Veda Max Classic Leather Jacket ( FYI- this jacket comes in 5 colors!)
2) Neiman Marcus quilted leather jacket (I love this color! And it’s on sale!!!)
3) 3.1 Phillip Lim cobalt jacket (I love the metallic finish! It’s pricey, but one of a kind!)

Second Row:

1) IRO ILARIA crackled leather jacket (the finish on this jacket is amazing) 
2) Ted Baker Ippal pink leather jacket (perfect mix of tough and girly!)
3) IRO Luiga red leather jacket (This red/orange color is to die for)

Make a Statement.

c600x525 Make a Statement.

Maybe it’s because I have been watching entirely too much Game of Thrones…(If that’s even possible!), but I have been lusting after elaborate, regal, and ornate statement necklaces lately.  The right one can bring an entire outfit together.  My favorite way to wear them is over a t-shirt though.  Laid back, and unexpected…it’s just a bit of sparkle to make you feel like a Queen.  (Or a Khaleesi)  Ok, I will stop now!

Check out my current picks for the most drool-worthy statement necklaces out there. All details on where to buy these gorgeous pieces are below!

Also, I am very sorry for my long hiatus from blogging! I was working on an incredible play, with a super talented cast.  It was written by my insanely talented boyfriend Chris Ferretti.  I will be doing  a feature on the play coming up!

Happy Tuesday! (& thanks Thao for getting me into Game of Thrones!  <3 you twinnie! )

1) Elizabeth Cole Stephanie Necklace (I love the subtle colors!)
2) Dylanlex Riley Necklace (Check out their website- you will drool!)
3) Lola Pixie Necklace (gorgeous detailing!)
4) Adia Kibur Crystal woven necklace (Great price!)
5) BCBGMAXAZRIA Multi Teardrop Necklace (gorgeous colors for Summer!)
6) Lulu Frost Poseidon Necklace (Love the silver/gold combo)

Snow Day

snow day 3 Snow Daysnow day 1 Snow Daysnow day 2 Snow Daysnow day 4 Snow DayWe had our first real snow storm of 2014 in NYC!  I wore my extra thick and cozy Isabel Marant for H&M Sweater, but even that could not keep me from freezing.  Trust me, I ran inside right after taking these photos for some hot tea and blankets! LOL

I still love bright colors in Winter, I think they brighten up your mood.  I also love the print on this sweater, and even though it sold out fast, I found tons of sweaters that achieve the same look! Check below for all the links! Details on outfit below!

By the way…. my SensatioNail mani has lasted me over two weeks since Christmas! I seriously love this at home gel polish!
