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

Final Hurrah for Fall Fashion

Today 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 www.Hgbagsonline.com.  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
