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!

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. 😉 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
Love, Julie
