A New Year, A New Look

Welcome to the all new … A New York Love Affair. Today is the one year anniversary of my little slice of internet, and I couldn’t be more excited to share it with you! Never…

Not So Casual Friday

It’s Friday!! Finally. Our office tends to be pretty casual, so after a week’s worth of pants, jeans and leggings I kinda just wanted to dress up! The air is still a bit chilly, so…

Pushing My Boundaries A Little More…

This year I plan to push my fashion boundaries even more. Maybe NYC is rubbing off on me a little… Those of you that know me, or have been reading along for some time, will know…

The Best (and Worst) from Last Night’s Golden Globes

2014. Another year, another red carpet season. Another opportunity to swoon over the Belle’s of the ball, and rag on the rest. A chance for us all to play “Fashion Police” for the night. Unfortunately (or fortunately)…

Frosty in Central Park

Manhattan was graced with two visitors this weekend: Winter Storm Hercules and Miss Lizzi Weasler (of Lizzibeth). One minute they were here, the next they were gone, leaving just enough time to capture their visit…

Lumberjack Chic

With Winter Storm Hercules headed our way, and a two-day-old migraine from too much champagne … I’d like nothing more than to be cozy in my bed right about now. Since the snow isn’t expected…

New Year’s Eve Glam

New Years Eve in New York. The most fabulous night of the year. It’s hard enough to decide what to wear on a normal day, so you can imagine the pressure of getting dressed for…

A New Yorker’s Fairy Godmother

When you’re living in a New York City apartment, closet space is a luxury. Spacious walk-in closets filled with glamorous dresses, rows of high heels, and a sit-down vanity, are far from most people’s realities. More…

Confessions

Shame.  Guilt.  Failure. Lay it on me, I deserve it. 27 days in to my self-proclaimed “shopping ban“, I caved. It was a break-down in will power at the sign of the first sale. I…

Rainy Days & Mondays Always Get Me Down

My morning looked a little like this: 6:12 am … my alarm goes off. Snooze. 6:21 am … it goes off again. Snooze. 6:30 am … do I need to wash my hair today? Nah……

Changing with the Seasons

As we push deeper into autumn toward the inevitable cold, the warm weather just won’t seem to let go. It has been a fall punctuated by uncharacteristically mild days; one that has made getting dressed…

Lady in Red

After waiting a full 10 months, I am finally getting some use out of this red pea coat. Normally I can’t wait more than a day to rip off the tags and wear something new,…

Pre-Christmas Shopping Ban

Why is it that, without fail, every time I start Christmas shopping I end up finding so many things I want to buy for myself?! Does anyone else have this problem? This year I’m not…

Falling for Manhattan in Autumn

Blazers and scarves. Trench coats and boots. Changing leaves and the crisp morning air. The list of things I love about Autumn is endless, and its finally time to enjoy them again. To welcome the Fall…

Suit Yourself

Sipping on Pimm’s Cups, nibbling on shrimp skewers, while admiring the collections of Gucci, Ferragamo, and Burberry (to name a few). Just a typical Thursday night during New York Fashion Week. When GQ and Bloomingdale’s cordially invites…

Dots and Stripes, and Everything Nice!

Today I’m doing a little ‘mix and match mash up’… a ‘print party’ if you will… To celebrate my one year anniversary of living in New York City, I thought I’d put together an outfit…

An Unlikely Color Combo

My boyfriend may be a Syracuse alum, but I’ll be honest — a navy & orange combination is not particularly front of mind when I get dressed in the morning. Lately I’ve been trying to…

Embracing the Maxi

I’m only 5’4…these dresses aren’t meant for shorties like me…the dress will drag on the ground…I’d have to wear heels or it would get ruined…it probably won’t even be flattering on me… Excuses, excuses. For…

Breaking The Rules

Sure, I’ve always been a bit of a rule follower. Blame it on my Midwestern roots. But after living in New York for almost a year, I realize its okay to break the rules sometimes…at least…
