Leopard Love

Truthfully, I had been lusting after these boots since last year, but the price tag stopped me.  When they went on sale though, I had to cave! And, believe it or not, they are comfortable!  And, they match perfectly with my J Crew Edie clutch that I also scored on sale.  Sadly, the leopard version is sold out now, but similar gorgeous leopard clutches are HERE, and HERE.  Today was actually a beautiful, warm day in NYC.  By warm, I mean 50s, but it’s January! That feels like Summer to me!!  It gave me a chance to rock my Balenciaga quilted jacket, with a fur vest on top. Again, for GREAT PRICES on Balenciaga, visit HG BAGS!! Email Erica and tell her you read  about her site on my blog!  Her prices are half off retail!! Too bad next week is back to cold. LOL Happy Weekend!

I paired two of Fall’s biggest trends for a fresh look: metallics and burgundy.  I found this awesome metallic skirt at Minusey for a great price.  I think the skirt adds a great pop of color in this dark, dismal Fall weather!  My burgundy quilted Balenciaga jacket is still my favorite Fall piece, and the color is just amazing.  I shot these photos in Astoria where I live……LOVE this city!  All photos by the amazing Katharine Andriotis. Details below on where to buy these items and recreate this look!

Here are some quick shots as I was running around the city today. 😉 Stopped by Barneys to see what was out for Fall, and also wanted to check out their new windows….THEY ARE GORGEOUS. I also met up with my friends Debbie and Sheree.  Burgundy is a HUGE color this season, so I was happy to finally be able to wear my burgundy Balenciaga quilted jacket.  (This was another huge investment buy.) When I saw the color I had to get it! I am actually seeing this color EVERYWHERE now. I will be doing a blog post soon on the best deals this season on bags, shoes, jackets and clothing in this deep rich color. Stay tuned for that! 😉 xoxo Julie

Brooklyn Wedding

Julie Brooklyn wedding Brooklyn WeddingMy boyfriend Chris and I went to a beautiful wedding in Brooklyn this past Saturday.  It was chic and edgy, with wine, cupcakes and dancing at this awesome bar with outdoor space.  I wore an adorable navy dress that I scored for $24.99 from Forever 21 (similar here, or here) , and paired it with my Balenciaga Blue Lavande clutch (similar look here or here) . I love mixing high and low end items.  It’s a great way to elevate your look and save money! My bangle is Hermes, (some more cool bangles here)  and my ring is YSL. Spike bracelet is CC Skye. It was a beautiful party, and we wish Matt and Sara a lifetime of happiness!  xoxo Julie 😉

Turquoise and Leather

We are experiencing that “in between” weather… know….where you aren’t sure if it’s Winter or Spring?  I wore my leather jacket today because I am endlessly optimistic that the weather will be warm, and stay warm.  But, as you can probably tell, it got cold. 🙁 I always carry around a Love Quotes Scarf with me, just in case a situation like this arises. They are light weight enough to stuff in your purse, but keep you warm when you wrap them a couple of times around your neck. Great quality! Glad I had it to thrown on over my thin shirt and leather jacket.  As you can see, I am never without my Alexander Wang Rocco bag. It’s perfect for wearing cross body, and grabbing on the go. I am so glad I got the rose gold hardware. It literally goes with everything, and the color really pops. Shopbop still has the same one I have with the rose gold hardware! Grab it before it’s too late!

Final Hurrah for Fall Fashion

015 2 Final Hurrah for Fall FashionToday was a gorgeous Fall day in NYC! It was unseasonably warm for the end of November, and I loved it!!  Today was the perfect excuse to wear my Balenciaga leather jacket.  I am definitely a leather jacket kinda girl.  I own about 10 leather jackets that I rotate and wear as much as possible when the weather permits.  In NYC,we only get about two months of really good” leather jacket wearing” weather in the Fall, so you better believe I take advantage of a day like today when I can!! I scored this beauty at a discount off  The owner Erica has amazing deals on everything “Balenciaga”. I had mentioned when I started this blog that I love mixing designer pieces with low priced items.  I have always loved splurging on really good shoes, jackets, and bags. ( My boots by the way are Acne Pistol Boots, and they are by far the most stylish and comfortable boots I have ever owned!….buy them here.)  I firmly believe that if you invest in high end, quality items that you will have forever, you will be able to buy everything else at a discount, but always look like a million bucks.  I plan on sharing some amazing ebay finds, and killer deals that I found online in my next blog post…..

In the meantime, enjoy my photos from today at Astoria Park! xoxoxoxoxo

What a breathtaking day in the park today! I love Astoria park for the view, atmosphere and people.  There were weddings in the park today, kids playing, baseball games, and people with their dogs……like this adorable Husky that we met! The leaves on the ground were the perfect touch to this Fall day. 

I paired my bright red Balenciaga city bag with this neutral gray dress from Forever 21, black tights, Acne boots, and my Balenciaga leather jacket. I love how the red bag adds a pop of color. Oh, and I took out my Lady Gaga for Barney’s sunglasses for the first time! I love the yellow, I think it works in for all seasons!  What are you favorite Fall outfits and colors?  Do share! xoxoxoxo
