Shades of Merlot

31 October 2012

These pants are my new favorites for two reasons... VELVET and BROCADE! Such a perfect combination, especially for fall by 7 For All Mankind. Of course I paired it with a shade of the same color family ( I adore tonal-dressing) and topped it off with a chunky scarf and lace-up boots. I am so into wearing cozy and comfy clothes these days. Living up this current sweater weather to the fullest.

Hope you all are having a wonderful day!

Calm Before The Storm

29 October 2012

These photos were literally taken during the calm before the storm. The storm we call Hurricane Sandy.  Currently I am surrounded by amazing friends in my apartment and we plan to stick together playing board games, watching movies, and eating yummy food during the duration of the storm. We are hoping to stay safe and took every precaution possible before the storm, so now all we can do is wait for it to pass. Ready for this to be over, and hope all my fellow East Coast friends stay safe!

Outfit // Leaves Are Changing

26 October 2012

Slowly but surely the leaves are starting to change colors here in NYC. As the days go by the leaves on the trees become more vibrant, and the city streets are covered in confetti-like pieces of red, yellow and orange. I have been basically living in this sweater from Free People. It is the perfect mix of autumnal shades and is incredibly cozy. I've been pairing it with these rugged boots, basic blouses, and skinnies or cut-off shorts and tights. The perfect Fall outfit if you ask me. 

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

October Wishlist

25 October 2012

October wish

One of my favorite things about Fall is the cute and cozy clothing that comes with it.
Every year I get so excited to bring out my old favorite autumn pieces, as well as add some new additions to my wardrobe. Here are a few pieces that I am just dying to add!

1.) SheInside Sweater: Oversized tribal-inspired sweaters are one of my absolute fall favorites. Pair them with some cute boots and skinnies and you are all set.
2.) Sam Edelman boots : If you have not noticed, boots are a little bit of an obsession of mine. These oxblood darlings need to get in my closet now.
3.) Anorak Fox Mug : This mug is just way too cute. Perfect for my ongoing coffee addiction.
4.) Rag & Bone hat : Perfect is the only word to describe this hat. Must invest in for messy  winter hair days.
7.) Frye camel bag : The color and the size is what really makes this bag a winner. Perfect to match my fall wardrobe 
6.)People Tree long socks: And last but not least on my wishlist, are comfy cozy socks! This waffle-knit pair is exactly what my lace-up booties are yearning for.

What's on your October wishlist?

Pretty in Mint

24 October 2012

Oh boy has this week been a busy one! I hardly had enough time to update today, but I just wanted to pop in to show you all one of my new favorite dresses. It is hard not to feel like a beautiful princess in it (one of my requirements for dresses) and anytime I am in a bad mood of some sort I put it on and magically feel much better. Silly, right? Can't explain it, but it's true!

Anyway I hope you all are having a fantastic week so far, and I just wanted to say thanks for all the feedback on my last post! It is so great hearing what you all love the most about this blog. To come on Flashes of Style: more DIYs, more NYC adventures, and more fashion advice!
