Snow Day

Snow DaySnow DaySnow DaySnow DayWe had our first real snow storm of 2014 in NYC!  I wore my extra thick and cozy Isabel Marant for H&M Sweater, but even that could not keep me from freezing.  Trust me, I ran inside right after taking these photos for some hot tea and blankets! LOL

I still love bright colors in Winter, I think they brighten up your mood.  I also love the print on this sweater, and even though it sold out fast, I found tons of sweaters that achieve the same look! Check below for all the links! Details on outfit below!

By the way…. my SensatioNail mani has lasted me over two weeks since Christmas! I seriously love this at home gel polish!

How are you staying warm this Winter? Share in the comments!

XOXOXO

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

BRIGHT ITEMS FOR WINTER
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. 😉 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

My Picks for Fall’s Hottest Burgundy items

The Fashion Minx's picks for burgundy items for Fall

Burgundy is hot for Fall, and it also happens to be one of my favorite colors! ( Refer to my post HERE with my burgundy Balenciaga quilted jacket)  With Burgundy being this season’s “IT” color, you will be seeing more and more of it in stores.  I have put together my choices for this season’s hottest Fall items in this gorgeous wine color.  The thing I love about burgundy is that it’s  flattering on everyone. And, as for accessories, a burgundy bag, or pair of shoes are always a great neutral, and a great way to add a pop of color to your outfit! Which is your favorite? ***Links to all items pictured above are listed below. 😉
