Flashback to NYC Fashion Week Spring 2011~ “With Love” necklace collection

Wow, I can’t believe it’s been a full year since these photos were taken! I didn’t have a blog back then so I wanted to post these photos now for you to see.  I was lucky enough to be invited to attend a W event  that was run by my good friend Elaine.  I also had a chance to promote a line of necklaces near and dear to my heart, the “With Love” Collection by Joe Cangemi. These necklaces are a unique design, an open circle shape that come in either white, yellow, or rose gold.  You are able to engrave the necklace with whatever you want.  “With Love” will appear on one side, with your choice of words for the other side.  For mine, I chose my name and my boyfriend’s name, Chris. Joe has special necklaces that he makes for causes that mean a lot to him, such as cancer research, breast cancer, AIDS, ect.  Some people chose to have a necklace made to represent what they have been through in life, and how they survived. These are more then just necklaces, they are symbols of life, love and strength.You can purchase them here.

Keep reading for photos of me and Joe wearing the necklaces, as well as photos from the W Event. 😉 xoxo

Casual Sunday (Go Giants!)

Superbowl Sunday!!! Today was a fun, relaxing day. We spent the day cooking, eating, and watching the game at our good friend’s house.  And…the GIANTS won! GO NY!!!

Today was a bit warmer, so I put on my leather jacket.  (Although I didn’t realize the intense chill in the air,so I put a fur vest over this jacket, and added a scarf right after the photos were snapped LOL)

I wore my super comfortable Frye Deborah boots. I love them and the stud detailing! And and I simply love my leopard Diego bag, it adds a pop to every outfit.  Hope you all had a great Sunday!!  Enjoy!!!

Layers, Belgian Waffles, and girl’s day out ;-)

Today was a gorgeous day in NYC!  The temperature went up to 60 degrees, and despite the high winds, it was a welcome break from the extreme cold weather we have been getting. I decided to have a girls day out in the city with my best friend Debbie. We wanted to hit the Nanette Lepore sample sale (details on what I purchased in a later post), get Belgian Waffles, and enjoy the gorgeous weather.  For those outside of NYC, there is an amazing Belgian Waffle truck in Chelsea. This truck is there 6 days a week, and serves up genuine Belgian Waffles, with unlimited toppings, (including a ground up cookie paste that is to die for!), fruit, ice cream, and melted Belgian chocolate.  YUM!!! Of course, we had to have everything on our waffles! LOL

I decided to layer up, wearing my rabbit fur vest under my Kenneth Cole coat, so that I was still warm in the high winds, but I would be able to remove my coat if necessary and just wear the vest.  My Acne Pistol boots are perfect for walking around the city for 8 hours, super comfortable!!!  But the icing on the cake? My gorgeous Alexander Wang Rocco bag with rose gold hardware!  Get it while you can! The rose gold hardware sells out right away! It’s so perfect because it goes with both gold and silver. Amazing bag!!

Today was a fun day!
