I have to admit, I was a bit surprised when Pantone unveiled that "Radiant Orchid" was their 2014 Color of the Year. Coming off of 2013 where emerald took center stage and seemed to be such a wearable tone, I thought this was a bold choice. And I wasn't sure how I felt about it. But now that we're in the second month of the year and I've had time to adjust, this vibrant purple hue has definitely started to grow on me. Nail...

Purse | Sweater | Necklace | Sweatshirt | Scarf | Coat | Heels | Skirt | Dior nail polish | Deborah Lippmann nail polish Pastel blue, powder blue, baby blue, sky blue -- no matter what you want to call it, I'm completely in love with this delicate, airy color for Spring! It's been popping up everywhere and I can't get enough. It doesn't come as a surprise that a pastel has taken center stage this season, but there's...

Image c/o SteveMadden.com Blogging has led to some pretty amazing opportunities for me in my own little corner of the Internet, and seeing the success others have had on a much larger scale continues to motivate me on a daily basis. Take, for instance, fashion blogger and international street style star Chiara Ferragni of The Blonde Salad. After several other successful collaborations with brands, she recently teamed up...

All images via Pinterest To say this winter has been brutal would be an understatement. The northeast will be digging out until July, New York City has been dumped on more times than it probably likes to be reminded of, and parts of the country that are usually warm weather destinations for everyone trying to escape these conditions have hit record low temperatures. It's been a challenge and I can't remember a time when...

    I'm a huge fan of dressing up an outfit by adding a statement necklace. With such busy schedules, it can be hard to find the time to go out an buy an entirely new outfit (not to mention the budget constraints!), but snagging a new attention-grabbing necklace is an easy and more affordable way to update what you already have in your closet. It can easily take a basic LBD from your basic 9 to 5 routine to your office...

  Party dresses: One || Two || Three || Four Tops: One || Two || Three || Four Accessories: Necklace || Bracelet || Earrings || Purse Shoes: Calfhair booties || Casual booties || Cutout boots || Pumps Express used to be one of my go-to stores in high school and college. Then, for whatever reason, I stopped going there. It wasn't really on purpose and probably had more to do with moving to a new city and having other...

As the Style Setter for The Fashion Centre at Pentagon City, I've had the opportunity to pull some of my favorite products from around the mall for a series we're calling the Holiday Gift Guru (that's me!). This three part series features items from a handful of stores that would make great gifts for the people on your Christmas list at varying price points. Check out my first installment below!   1. Swarovski Fit Silver...

The Fashion Centre at Pentagon City during the holidays. Original image here.   Is it just me, or do the holidays seem to sneak up on you despite your best efforts to stay on top of them? And with a shorter span of time between the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays this year (six days less -- eek!), you might be feeling the pressure to check everything off of your ever-growing to do list. Fortunately, this is also the...

It seems like retailers are opening earlier and earlier every year to allow shoppers to maximize their Black Friday deal-snagging time. You may not even be fully digested from your seven course meal and second piece of pie by the time you head out the door to scour the stores for steals. If that's the case, you might not have time to change from what you wore to your Thanksgiving feast into something that allows you to be...

Thanksgiving may not be until next week, but if you haven't already started your holiday shopping, you've probably at least thought about it!

This annual tradition is the perfect...
