(And winner of Asos coat giveaway announced!)Hello from snow buried NYC!!!  As most of the world knows, NYC, and the surrounding areas of New England were covered in a blanket of snow this weekend.  (The timing of “Nemo” hitting us at the start of Fashion Week  was definitely NOT ideal!) But, I can’t say it’s not beautiful!  Me, being the stubborn fashionista that I am, insisted on wearing my tall wedge Steve Madden boots despite the thick ice and snow.   You should have seen the look on my boyfriend’s face when I emerged from the bedroom in these! We had a meeting in our neighborhood, so I figured walking a few blocks to brunch in these babies wouldn’t be bad. After all…..there is rubber on the bottom! Boy, was I wrong! All I can say is thank God for railings,parked cars, and my boyfriend to hold on to! LOL  Since it was so cold, I opted to put a warm fur vest over my wool Mackage coat.  I love layering vests over coats to give them a fresh look.  I also love the look of fur over coats, and this is a great way to get that look without spending a ton of money.  It’s also a good way to wear old coats, and make them look new again!  The vest was an ebay find btw. 😉 Lastly, I wore bright blue cobalt to brighten up the black, and as you know from THIS POST, I love neon brights in Winter! How are you dressing for the storm? Tell me in the comments below.

Anyway, this has been an exciting weekend so far. My boyfriend, an up and coming actor and comedian, (and a pretty good blog photographer if I do say so myself), appeared on national television yesterday, and had host Vinnie Politan laughing in stitches on HLN’S Making it in America. If you want to laugh, click here to watch the video.

Lastly, the moment we have all been waiting for! The winner of my Asos Leopard Coat Giveaway! The winner is Annie!  I will be contacting her now! Congrats Annie! The winner was picked randomly.  Stay tuned for TWO more giveaways this month!!! And thanks for reading! Continue to follow me on Facebook, and Twitter for more updates and giveaways!

012 3 Hope your New Year is BRIGHT!!HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!  My first post of the New Year! I am so excited!  Thanks to everyone who has been following my infant blog so far! I promise there will be more exciting posts, givaways, and tons to look forward to in 2012!! 😉

For New Years Eve day yesterday, I decided I wanted my outfit to reflect my spirit and outlook for 2012….which is BRIGHT.  I decided to wear this gorgeous Old Navy wool coat that I purchased last year, and never had the chance to wear!   I absolutely LOVE this shade of pink.  It’s such a great pop of color in the cold, dreary winters of NYC! Even wearing it made me happy!  And, for a bonus, it was super affordable, as are all Old Navy coats, at just $99.99.  Chic, elegant, and fun for under $100 bucks!

My best friend Debbie snapped these photos for me in her neighborhood of Forest Hills, New York.  (It’s in Queens for you out of towners LOL) We were out shopping, and buying food for her New Years Party that night.  I hope you all had a fabulous, fun, amazing, and special New Years! All the best for 2012! xoxoxo

Have a very bloody Christmas! ~From Julie and ChrisIt’s a tradition for my boyfriend Chris and I to come up with fun and outlandish ideas for our Christmas Cards every year.  This year we decided to do a “True Blood” theme.  We are huge fans of the show, and we thought a bloody tribute to our favorite show about Vampires was the perfect way to wish happy holidays to our friends and family, in our signature style.  😉 The photo shoot was TONS OF FUN, with our good friends Melia and Angel helping us set up the shots, and also play a few roles in the photos.  I thought it would be fun to share these shots with all of you.  Hope you enjoy them!!

Happiest and bloodiest of holidays……xoxoxo
