I love layering fur vests over coats to make them warmer, and to change up the look of old coats in your closet. Here I put a fur vest over my Mackage coat.  The fur trapper hat is a great finishing touch. Shop this entire look below!!!

Hey guys!  I am so excited about this post!  I recently had the opportunity to shoot at 5 Pointz in Queens.  It’s an awesome space where graffiti artists display their work. How amazing in this incredible street art? I was blown away by the talent displayed at 5 Pointz! Read more about 5 Pointz HERE.

For my shoot I chose a funky, urban inspired Fall look. Yes, it’s finally cool in NYC!! Thank God! Leopard was the theme for the day, and I took advantage of the crisp weather to break out my leopard calf hair boots and bag.  The hot pink coat was the finishing touch- I have been WAITING to wear this coat all Summer! Details on what I am wearing, and where to buy them are below. 😉

But, first- here is a video I made showcasing the artists’ work, and what I wore.  Enjoy!
XOXO
JULIE

Currently Craving: My Handbag Picks for Spring 2013!

c600x536 Currently Craving: My Handbag Picks for Spring 2013!
Are you ready for Spring? I know I am! NYC has been very cold lately, but we are finally getting some sunny days……and with that comes Spring Fever!!!  I am itching for a new handbag, so I have begun hunting online.  I have decided to share my picks with you here, showcasing some of my favorites. I am really loving stripes and patterns on bags, as well as  bright and neon colors, which are still a big trend.  Cross body bags are always great for warmer weather, because they are easy to throw on to walk around outside. Which do you love? Links are below to all the bags!

First row:
1) Loeffler Randall The Rider Bag (Love the color blocking, and bright colors!!)
2) 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Medium Satchel ( a great cross body version of the famous Pashli satchel in a bright color for Spring!!!)
3) J Crew Edie Purse (I love this purse! This is the smaller version, and I love the pastel lilac color for Spring! So chic and girly!)

Second row:
1) Madewell The Essex Messenger (Love the earthy colors, and comfortable cross body style)
2) Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac bag (I love the pink stripes, they scream Spring! Super comfy bag too!)
3) Clare Vivier Woven Foldover Clutch ( I am obsessed with this gorgeous grass green color, and woven textured leather! Perfection!)
 

Third row:
1) Alexander Wang Diego Bucket bag ( This subtle lilac color against the rose gold hardware is simply stunning!!!)
2) Madewell The Essex Mini bag (Love the crisp white against the brown, it’s fresh and clean for Spring. GREAT PRICE too!)
3) Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac bag ( This bag makes a second appearance because it’s so easy and comfortable to wear. I am also loving these bright pops of color for Spring!

Lady Gaga’s Workshop at Barney’s!!!

018 11 Lady Gagas Workshop at Barneys!!!
Hey little monsters!!  I was super excited to check out Gaga’s workshop at Barney’s in person today!  I  heard it was a wonderland of whimsy not to be missed, and that is a truly accurate description! From the moment the elevator doors open to the 5th floor, you are assaulted with imagery, colors, and eye candy! It was like Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory….but Gaga style. There is an entire section of just candy, cookies, lollipops and treats, all either in Gaga’s likeness, or representing some part of her style or personality.  It was fun, unique, clever, and honestly such a refreshing take on the typical type of gift shop for the holidays.  I HAD to leave with something…..read on to see what I got! 😉

0141 Lady Gagas Workshop at Barneys!!!This is what you see when you first enter the floor.  A giant sculpture of a Gaga-esque cartoonish statue, wearing an outfit of fishnets and platform heels that I am sure I have seen on Gaga before. The shards of glass on the floor around it, along with the pink chains sectioning it off, complete the fantasy feel. 

photo2 1 Lady Gagas Workshop at Barneys!!!For those outside of NYC, I have to tell you it was raining today, like a monsoon!!! My best friend Debbie and I had plans to check out Gaga’s workshop though, and we weren’t gonna let a little rain hold us back!  I wore my new Mackage coat, which kept me warm and dry in the heavy downpour, BDG jeans, and my Chinese Laundry flat boots.  (in retrospect, I should have worn my hunter rain boots, but I had no idea how bad the weather was LOL)  .


When you enter and turn right, there is the candy area!  I LOVE these cookies!!!  “Little Monster” butter cookies! Great gift!  And, they are delicious butter cookies by the way! I bough my boyfriend the large Gaga cookie…..full body….but sadly she broke in 3 pieces on the way home.  Trying to walk around NYC in the rain is tough, and poor cookie Gaga was decapitated in the process.  No worries, my boyfriend said it was delicious anyway!

017 Lady Gagas Workshop at Barneys!!!I LOVED the Gaga sunglasses! She had a few different styles, some outrageous and not really fit for daily wear…LOL  But….these were perfect!
