Shortcut to Fabulous New Year’s Collection

I am counting down the days to 2013 for many reasons. I have been rather quiet on my blog lately, mainly because I have been so busy growing my business. I am proud to announce I have expanded my New York operations to include Showroom space. I have big plans for 2013 and after months of working round the clock to lay the foundation, I will be more active on the blog I hope. But enough about that and let me get to the reason you should be looking forward to 2013…Jason Wu’s more affordable line sold exclusively at Nordstrom starting January 7, 2013. I love the pieces below, especially the cashmere sweater with the peekaboo inlay. It is still a bit pricey at $325, but for cashmere from an iconic designer, it is definitely worth it. All I have to say is I Wuv Wu!

Miss Wu Collection prices range from $200-$500

Shortcut to Fabulous $32 boots

old nacy shoes

I discovered a new vintage store in Miami today that opened three weeks ago, The Vintage Revenge (more on that in a coming Miami Monday) and spent my winter boot money on the most gorgeous vintage cashmere sweater, bracelet and blouse. Okay, okay…fine…you got me….I spent my winter boot money for the next three years on the most gorgeous vintage cashmere sweater, earrings, bracelet, blouse, dress and a handbag for good measure. But I need cute booties STAT…so now what? Well, I found these really cute gray Oxford booties on Old Navy on sale for $32.50. They come in gray and black and fit my pea sized confessions of a shopaholic budget. Score! Click on the pic to check them out.

Shortcut to Fabulous Christmas Gift for the Dapper Dude in your Life

Print

Buying gifts for guys is always so hard…especially the men in my life. So strange to grow up in a fashion family (yup…my Dad owns a clothing company) and have male family members with no fashion sense. My brother is semi-hopeless and my husband has the exact same pattern and color shirt made by fancy brand imaginable. Imagine a closet full of $300 blue checked shirts…it is really kind of creepy.

 

This year I am going to force a little fashion on them and get them a gift card for a Skinny Fattie tie make-over. For $30 you get this cute gift card that allows you to send in a fat tie and have it converted to a skinny one. This could be a great two-part gift. You could get the gift card and go to a Thrift store and get a fat tie or even shop in your father, brother or significant other’s closet for a fat tie. I just love this concept…plus they are tailored in Brooklyn which ups the cool factor even more! Click on the photos to check them out….

 

 

 

 

 

**Disclaimer. I have worked with Skinny Fatties, but I have not been compensated for this post and I really LOVE the ties.

Miami Monday…Shortcut to Fabulous Basel event

fashion photo stock

Who really wants to go look at a bunch of art this week? Really, who really, truly wants to look? Not me. I know that makes me sound shallow and not creative, but if it ain’t in a museum in Europe or an exhibition at the MET or the Guggenheim in New York, I probably don’t care. With that being said, Basel brings a great vibe to the city and if you can get past the parking nightmare and the traffic to the beach (may I recommend getting girlfriends together and hiring a driver!), there is some really fun stuff to do. My pick for the week…well my event of course. A sample sale this Friday at the fab Whitelaw Hotel on South Beach, Fashion 1st Fridays. What do you get? Well no art my friends…at least not in the traditional sense, but to me fashion is art and fashion at a discount is art at its finest!

 

If Art is what you are looking for, may I recommend this event on the pool deck of the Marquis downtown. I like this one cause you avoid the beach and design district traffic, but still get to feel like you are living in an episode of Gallery Girls…Bravo style with bling and a pool deck at the Marquis Residences….one of Miami’s chicest places to call home.
