summer nights

_D9A9923

When I heard that off-the-shoulder tops were making a comeback, I couldn’t wait to channel my inner Sandy. Grease has always been a favorite movie of mine and when growing up, I used to put a version of the all black ensemble on and dance around the house singing, “You’re The One That I Want” endlessly.  No judgements please!  My shoulders are also a favorite part of my body, so this silhouette not only makes childhood dreams come true, but accentuates that area.  This Topshop bardot top was a mega steal at $44, and I’ve already scooped up the white.  You won’t find me singing Grease anthems around my apartment any time soon, but I’ll be living in this top throughout my “Summer Nights“.

Styling Strategy:   Wear clothing that celebrates your assets.  It lands you looking and feeling your best.  For me, this top highlights my shoulders, but is flowy so strategically hides my mid-section.  It’s still sexy, but not in the traditional sense.  Always remember to find styles that work for you and your shape!

kate moss x topshop wishlist

kate moss x topshopThe ever so stylish supermodel, Kate Moss is back with her second collection for Topshop, which launched this morning (her first collaboration with the retailer was in 2007)!  Just like the Isabel Marant x H&M launch from Fall, items will definitely sell out in record time.  You’ll want to make your way over to a Topshop retail location or get online STAT to scoop up one (or more!) of these iconic pieces before they are gone.  You can also find the collection at Net-A-Porter.  Kate Moss’s boho meets edgy sensibility comes through in each design, and with Topshop’s competitive price points we can all have a little bit of the uber stylish Kate Moss hanging in our closet.  On my wishlist…

1. Floral Chiffon Maxi Dress, $360 // 2. Fringe Leather Jacket, $380 // 3. Aztec Print Sundress, $120 // 4. Lame’ Bias Cut Maxi Dress $590 // 5. Scallop Trim Cami, $76 // 6. Shadow Stripe Print Jumpsuit, $190 // 7. Suede Runner Shorts, $150

I have no idea where i am going in this outfit but I hope it’s somewhere fabulous, and hope that time is sometime soon.  I’ve been obsessed with it since the try on session and instagram snap over a month ago.  Spring is a buzzing here in NYC and as far as seasonal trends go, metallic is high up on the list of must-haves. Who says sparkle is just for the holiday season?  Rules are made to be broken, clearly.  The best part about this ensemble is not the mere fact that I was able to find a coordinated top and bottom in the coveted silver metallic color.  It’s that both of these pieces from H&M, together were $65!!!  I swear this may be the best investment I’ve ever made.  I appreciate a luxury item no less then the next person, but when finding exactly what I want for a steal – you can sign me right up, STAT!  The weather is warming here in NYC and this head-to-toe look is begging for a night out, along with other metallics I found on the interweb like this rose gold option from Topshop, an effortless high-low maxi dress from Alice & Olivia, this wear-with-everything cami by Parker, and this green (be still my heart) cropped, embroidered beaut from Zara.

motoring into spring

spring inspoI am counting down the seconds till spring for a multitude of reasons.  First and foremost, this NYC winter has gotten the best of me and despite my hardcore love of this amazing and wondrous city, I’m pissed off at the weather patterns.  The novelty of snow is appreciated, but when occurring weekly, it gets old really fast.  It’s safe to assume I’m over it.  With that said, I’m super excited to shed my heavy winter-wear and embrace the fashions of spring  which includes lighter jackets and more skin exposure.  I’m inspired by the above look and would love to replicate it when the temperature creeps up.  I don’t usually wear short necklaces, but am feeling this choker from Zara.  And a hint of a lace bra through the double breasted blazer is OH-so-sexy, bringing femininity and softness to the overall menswear inspired look.  Adios sweaters and boots!  Don’t let the door kick you in the ass on your way out!

spring ahead

trench coat A forever fashion staple, trench coats have been around for eternity.  Which is why it’s a good idea to keep one on rotation in your closet since season after season, the classic silhouette proves to stand the test of time.  Whether your look is boho, edgy, polished, etc., a trench works well with any particular style and keeps you just the right amount of warm on cooler spring days.  The interweb is bursting with newness from low to high price points so now is the time to get on it!  Here’s an edit of some current faves for your shopping pleasure.  Happiest, happy weekend!  See you on the flip side.  xx jenny
