Why Is It So Cold?

Let me start by saying that IT IS FREEZING. I woke up this morning not wanting to leave my bed. Just hearing the wind blowing against the buildings made me curl up and ask for five more minutes! This week I'm staying at the Moderne Hotel between 8th and 9th Ave. This hotel is steps away from Columbus circle and Lincoln Center. I got a suite that overlooks West 55th and there is an amazing Thai place right next door. Every time I come to NYC I experience something different. I've never staying in MidTown and I'm in love with it's fast pace vibe. How about we talk some fashion?

As you could imagine during Fashion Week, the entire city is filled with fashionistas that are trying to look their best. Instead of aiming to try and "out-do" someone, I went for my personal style that's best said as a mix of Modern with an Urban flare. Below I paired camo skinnies with a simple ASOS overcoat. Underneath is a black knit sweater. I used a Dior scarf to add a pop of color and bring in some "label." Nothing complicated, just easy. 

GUYS - don't be afraid to take a risk. Camo is making its' way big box stores and in my opinion, should be used sparingly. Don't be afraid to accent with some patterns you are afraid of. 

On a completely different note, I'M STILL FREEZING. I'm headed to times square to find earmuffs and coffee. Apparently Chris Brown is having a concert in Brooklyn, you think Rhianna will be there???

Until tomorrow,

Do You Ever Feel, Like A Plastic Bag?

In case you missed it, NBC broadcasted a 12 minute Katy Perry concert that clearly overshadowed a little thing called the Superbowl on Sunday. While I didn't enjoy the Seahawks loss, I did enjoy halftime. Dare I bring up two years ago when Beyoncé reunited with Destiny's Child? The battle has been waged between the two females on who did it better. Katy will always have my vote, and that's all I'll say about that :) Katy's halftme performance will be at the bottom of this post if you'd like to re-watch it. 

Now, on to the fashion! I'm 11 days away from New York Fashion Week and I can't wait!! I've been raiding my closet and online stores shopping for some last minute looks. Today it was a bit warm in The Fort, so I put together a spring inspired look that kept me just warm enough on a 55 degree day.

I'm obsessed with Perry Ellis winter collection, I've been wearing it all season! I recently purchased these Johnston & Murphey sheepskin chukka's (some of the warmest, most comfortable boots I own)

#DontBelieveMeJustWatch

The title of this post has absolutely nothing to do with the content. I'm just ridiculously in love with Mark Ronson's new song, Uptown Funk. (Watch the video at the end of this post) Anyways...

What a year it has already been and it's only January 15. How is everyone? I'm going to jump right into it so we can get to the fashion. I'm so excited to announce that as of January 12, 2015 I've joined the team at the United States Marshals Museum! This isn't just a big deal for me, it's a big deal for our community! The Museum will be the largest catalyst that our community has seen. I'm so honored to step on and I'm excited to add value in multiple areas with this incredible organization. 

Now onto the fashion. With me being a recent addition to the museum, I can't exactly rock the "NY Street Style" look during working hours. I've taken a more relaxed southern approach to dressing. It's still skinny jeans and boots, just paired with sweaters and button downs. Add a modern cut to offset the sweater and you have a sharp day outfit that transitions perfectly to evening wear.
