Snow Day

snow day 3 Snow Daysnow day 1 Snow Daysnow day 2 Snow Daysnow day 4 Snow 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!

Ahhh, Winter in NYC……..it can be gloomy, misty, foggy, and dark at times can’t it? But no matter how dark the skies become, there is something so gorgeous about the buildings, architecture, and design of the ciy that always stands out.  Case in point, the beautiful surroundings on this particular gloomy day in February. And, just so you know, it was freezing! I stayed warm by layering my Zara denim shirt over a J Crew t shirt, and my bright cobalt Marc Jacobs coat kept me both warm, and happy with a needed pop of color.  I last wore this gorgeous coat in THIS POST.  (You can buy a Similar coat HERE) I carried my orange clutch from ASOS for an added pop of color.  I have a always loved blue and orange together.This clutch was last seen in THIS POST, paired with denim.  (Similar clutch HERE.) The fringe suede boots are Nine West. They were on sale, and sold out, but you can buy a similar style HERE.  Stay warm!

(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!

High Fashion in Machine City

Julie bike show main photo High Fashion in Machine City We spent this past Sunday at the Motorcycle show at the Javitz Center. What gorgeous bikes! I especially loved this yellow one.  Think it matches my outfit? LOL

Julie bike show 13 fixed small for blog High Fashion in Machine City There is something so badass about riding a motorcycle in a skirt and heels. I had images of myself hightailing it out of NYC on my yellow bike-very Bonnie and Clyde.  Too bad I don’t know how to ride bikes. 🙁

Can’t believe it’s street legal!

So retro. It’s gorgeous!  I would even love to have it on display in our apt, next to my leopard coats and bags. (Chris said no to this idea. LOL)

Julie bike show row of bikes High Fashion in Machine City I didn’t take any bikes home, but maybe next time. 😉  I love the pop of floral in my skirt against the black I was wearing. I love mixing things like black motorcycle boots with floral patterns to combine masculine with feminine. I thought this was the perfect look for a bike show.

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!
