So before it was even New Years retail stores were already swapping sweaters for shorts. Seriously. A little early? Maybe. But it’s certainly setting the tone for Spring.  The hot new trend for spring is literally “Tying the Knot”, nautical style.
Get inspired ladies…

I haven’t been to a wedding in 3 months. It’s a record. But in a week I get to go to my dear friend E’s wedding at a ski resort in Maryland, and I could not be more excited, and I cannot wait to share everything about it with you all so soon!

In the meantime, here are some of my favorite guest dresses out in stores now. Most of you know I’m not a bag whore kind of girl. No, no. I take my temptations in the form of shoes, (lots and lots of shoes) dresses and coats. It’s bad. By the way… sometimes you can get really amazing dresses that won’t make you shell out you’re entire paycheck, which… is amazing. And sometimes, you have to just suck it up, spend the money and promise yourself to wear it more than once. Enjoy!

It’s happening already. The city has become “Christmafied” already. My colleagues are listening to Christmas music, it’s on in the stores, little white twinkle lights are dotting the trees on Park Avenue, and the Rockettes have already set up show at Radio City. Christmas is coming… earlier and earlier it seems.

Not that I’m complaining. I love the holidays. I love the sparkle of the holidays. And lately I’ve been into statement making accessories, so today, I bring you  statement making accessories with a whole lot of sparkle.  Necklaces, amazing little clutches, big earrings, bangle bracelets- good accessories can make an outfit. A beautiful dress in a classic cut and color makes a much bigger statement with the right accessories. But… I caution you, as with most things… everything in moderation. Follow the advice of Coco Chanel, and right before you’re about to leave, take something off.
