Fall Florals & Essentials

As the temperatures begin to drop, there is but one thing that excites me...

Leather weather! 

This Schott Perfecto moto jacket is the first leather jacket I've ever owned and is one of the greatest investments I've made to date. I can honestly say that this purchase completely transformed my personal style. From the moment I slipped it on, something clicked & there was no turning back. I've worn this jacket intensively--whether paired with a simple tee and jeans or thrown over the most feminine pieces,  I always feel awesome, put together, and completely myself. I can honestly say that I would wear this very jacket everyday if the weather permitted! 

It's no secret that I'm a hat fanatic! In my opinion, there's a hat out there for everyone! It took 25 years for this addiction to manifest and I'm absolutely flabbergasted it took THIS long! A great hat has the ability to completely transform and add so much character to any outfit. At one point, my hat collection grew extensive, but as my appreciation for what goes into creating a well-made hat grew, I donated the ones that weren't quite doing it for me anymore and spent a bit extra on handcrafted toppers, perfectly sized for me and made right here in the U.S.A.! The latest addition to grace my ever-growing arsenal of hats is my Worth & Worth Luna in Chestnut! Isn't she a beauty?

When I first purchased Luna, I automatically knew the first outfit I wanted to pair her with! I had worn this awesome ASOS floral dress during one of my NYFW events earlier this fall, but wore it with a black hat, which, unintentionally, gave off a witchy vibe and while I didn't mind the look, it's not the look I was going for. The rich, warm chestnut brown hues of this hat matches perfectly with the earth toned colors of this dress. Because this floral chiffon dress is so flowy and feminine, I knew the moto jacket would add just the right amount of edge for my taste, slipped on my Intentionally Blank Honcho's in Bone, looked in the mirror, gave myself a nod of approval and knew I had found the perfect counterparts to this dress, making this one of my favorite fall looks!

P.S. Who says you can't wear floral prints in November?!

Nanette Lepore Accessories Launch Party

You know that amazing high you experience after meeting someone you really hit it off with?

That's exactly how I felt after heading home from Nanette Lepore's Accessories Lauch Party!
Not only is Nanette's Spring 2016 collection what dreams are made of, but the amazing individuals supporting Nanette Lepore, Classic Time Watch Co. and Fantasia Accessories, were an absolute dream team!

From the moment I walked in, everyone was so genuinely kind, walking me through the beautiful spring collection, wanting to learn more about me, and making sure I took advantage of their gorgeous spread of eats & drinks (I mean, LOOK at that food presentation!!) I felt right at home :) I had a moment to chat a bit with Nanette, who is an absolute sweetheart & tell her all about how my mother & I are completely in love with one of her past fragrances! #majorfangirlmoment

Nanette's Spring 2016 features two collections: Nanette Lepore leather handbags and luxury watches & Nanette Nanette Lepore vegan handbags & watches offered at a more affordable price point! What to expect: bold colors, eclectic prints and patterns & the prettiest fabrics! Some of my favorite pieces are reminiscent of the bohemian mindset of the 70's. I'm completely in love with the bright red-orange crossbody saddle bags & her beautiful bucket bags with cross-stritch detailing! So good! Let's not forget Nanette Lepore's intricately designed watches in collaboration with Classic Time Watch Co.! These watches feature some of the most intricately designed faces I've ever seen without looking overdone. I haven't found a watch that I've been lusting over in years until stumbling upon this stunning collection!

Nanette Lepore's Spring 2016 Accessories will launch February 2016 on, &

In the meantime, shop some of my current Nanette Lepore favorites below:
