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 went on a cupcake date tonight with my incredible boyfriend, (who also happens to be my photographer).  We love Martha’s Bakery in our neighborhood! The baked goods are made fresh daily and rival almost any bakery you can name. My favorite is the red velvet. icon wink Sweet Friday  Cupcakes and Camouflage It was a very rainy night, so I went casual in my skinny jeans, and brightened up the look with a neon cashmere sweater from J Crew, under a camo studded jacket from Zara. I love mixing patterns and colors.  I am also loving neon lately, as you can see from my nails, and latest blog posts.  Maybe it’s because it’s so dark lately in NYC…….. wearing bright colors just seems to make you feel happier. ;-)  Hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Today was a mild Winter day, I love that! My Three Floor fur parka finally arrived in the mail. I have been lusting after this coat for months, and when it finally went on sale at Free People, I bit the bullet and bought it.  So glad I did! The bottom half actually zips off to a jacket, and that is how I chose to wear it today. I also love wearing my Plush fleece lined tights in Winter.  They are super warm, and allow you to wear skirts and dresses in Winter weather without being cold. Oh, and you can grab these gorgeous leopard gloves at J Crew on sale!  Every woman need some leopard in her life. icon wink On the roof We shot today on our roof.  I love NYC.  Happy Thursday!

Happy Sunday. ;-)  I spent my Sunday with my amazing boyfriend in our neighborhood. It was chilly today, but not too cold. Yay! I scored these amazing metallic jeans at Forever 21! (Can you believe it? So affordable!) In fact, my hat, jeans, and sweater are all from Forever 21, and probably only cost a total of $55 for everything! Who said you can’t look good on a budget?  My Mackage coat is an ebay find, for 50 percent off.  I love their coats, they are so warm and stylish.  We ended our day at our favorite Pizza place in Astoria.   Yum. Great way to end a Sunday.  How was your weekend?

My Favorite BRIGHT Cold Weather Items! (Who said Winter has to be dull?)

c600x473 My Favorite BRIGHT Cold Weather Items! (Who said Winter has to be dull?)
YES, WINTER IS HERE! (I can tell by the fact that my fingers seem to go numb within 3 minutes of leaving my apt.)  I think when the weather gets this cold, and the skies becoming increasingly dark, it’s easy to get a little depressed. (lack of Vitamin D anyone?) But….fear not…..I have a way you can beat the Winter Blues.  Well……it’s more like a way to “brighten”up your gloomy days, and have an excuse to go shopping. icon wink My Favorite BRIGHT Cold Weather Items! (Who said Winter has to be dull?) LOL But seriously….I am loving all the neon and bright Winter items I am seeing in stores and online.  I think wearing color in Winter is fun, playful, and lifts your mood. Here are my current favorites that I am craving.  Which are your favorite?? (P.S. Added bonus…most are on SALE!!!)  . XOXOXO

The Fashion Minx and The Sequin Cinderella in NYC!!!

Julie nicola 83 The Fashion Minx and The Sequin Cinderella in NYC!!!

So excited to finally meet Nicola in person!!!

I was lucky enough to meet and work with the fabulous, and well known Irish blogger Nicola from The Sequin Cinderella! This was Nicola’s first trip to NYC, and she loved it! For our shoot, we chose Times Square, the heart of NYC as our location.  We chose to wear skirts and dresses mixed with boots which give off a tough/feminine look- which is perfect for this city. We hit Sephora, walked around Times Square, and had fun with some police officers! Of course, we also talked shopping, finding deals in the city, and ways to protect yourself from the harsh NYC winter temps while still showcasing your style! Read on for details on on what we were wearing and our tips for chic winter style! xoxoxo

It was a very cold night, which called for a lot of layering! I am a huge fan of fur vests because you can layer them under, or above a coat or jacket! (That night I did both)  I wore my blue feather vest from Topshop.  I love the texture of it, and it’s super warm!  There are tons of adorable fur vests out there, both real and faux. I also love THIS ONE, THIS ONE,  and THIS ONE. Nicola wore a gorgeous lace dress from Zara with studded boots by Chiara Ferragni. I love the look of a feminine lace dress mixed with tough biker style boots.  Similar dresses HERE, and HERE.  Also, I love these studded boots by ASH.   I went with a cobalt blue theme, wearing my blue Celine (similar bag HERE) , blue J Crew top, and my blue bubble necklace. Oh….and my cobalt blue YSL ARTY RING.  (They were recently discontinued, so if you are lusting after one, get one now!!)

My boyfriend just got featured on Channel NY1!

Yesterday, Channel NY1 reached out to feature my boyfriend Chris in a special news segment (you can see me sitting next to him in the video)!  He’s been getting a lot of press for his impressions and comedy. My boyfriend, like me, is an actor, comedian and writer.  He also does amazing impressions – and he’s been making some serious coin with them. Basically, people looking to do something a little different for a gift, can pay him to prank call people as Christopher Walken, Alec Baldwin, Tony Soprano, any many more characters, all through a website called Fiverr. Naturally, orders for Christopher Walken are always in high demand, and the most popular on Chris’s page.  icon wink My boyfriend just got featured on Channel NY1!

Check it out and get someone you love the perfect birthday gift at www.fiverr.com/jerseyferretti. You can also see Chris’ hilarious videos on his youtube channel at www.youtube.com/chrisferretti.

After the interview we took advantage of the beautiful weather and took a couple of quick snapshots in Astoria. I wore my Balenciaga leather jacket, but even that proved too heavy for this Spring, or as I like to say “the early Summer” weather! :-)  Leave a comment below. Now we are off to get the biggest air conditioner ever to beat this sweltering heat. WOW! It’s only March! XOXOXO – Julie icon wink My boyfriend just got featured on Channel NY1!
