*Sponsored by StockX and Shopstyle*

Louis Vuitton Bumbag Monogram: StockX

It’s possible! How to score the bag of your dreams with StockX. When I purchase bags online, I want to make sure they’re authentic. Especially when it comes to one of my favorites, Louis Vuitton. I partnered with StockX and found this beautiful Louis Vuitton bag. I loved it so much that I didn’t just “Bid” on the item, I simply clicked “Buy Now” to get it in my hands ASAP.

StockX is a live ‘buy/sell’ marketplace with 10 million monthly visitors and an incredible collection of coveted bags from brands like Gucci, Fendi, and more. Many of the items are impossible to find elsewhere or sold out in stores. Sellers easily ship their luxury goods to StockX (no need to provide photos or description), then StockX verifies the items and sends them to buyers when a deal aligns. Right now, it is my go-to spot for buying luxury bags and accessories. With 100% authentication guaranteed and transparency into recent selling prices, StockX makes me completely comfortable purchasing a designer piece online with a click of a button because I know the item’s true value. It also gives me that thrill. The thrill of bidding to win or taking the leap, and simply buying now! It’s exciting, and at the end of the day, I always know that I’m getting a really good deal on my find. Digging has never felt more rewarding.

This Louis Vuitton Bumbag Monogram handbag arrived at my doorstep exactly as it was described on the listing. Excellent condition, authenticated, and totally gorgeous. This is a sporty must-have of the season. I love it best styled with a super cropped puffer jacket along with some chic and easy layering. When you’ve scored an amazing bag, you just want to show it off.

NEW YEAR’S EVE EVENING COUTURE WITH ST. JOHN

Evening couture gown: St. John.

It’s on New Year’s Eve that I whip out my flash camera and bounce around the party, capturing every moment in sight. What goes best with flash? Sparkle, and lots of it. I really adore how St. John does evening couture. Each item I’ve kept in my closet is so timeless that I can wear them forever. This iconic American luxury house stays true to their roots, dating back to the 60’s. The way they have always done knits is innovative and iconic, having remained of the same amazing quality since day one. I have never felt a knit gown that felt so luxurious to the touch, with so much dimension and elegance. This is my New Year’s Eve ensemble: the St. John Metallic Knit Halter Neck Gown. It’s sophisticated. It twinkles. It has a stunning cut-out design, making it the perfect dress to go with a chic and messy low-bun. It’s all about the neckline and sequins! I kept things elegant but eclectic with a sheer dotted tight, and snake-print stiletto. I find combining subtle prints and patterns to be fun, especially with a statement black gown. But before I go anywhere I have to complete the look with a glossy, statement lip. It’s this time of year I invest in only a few really amazing gowns that work well even beyond the holiday season. Birthdays. Galas. It’s every single time that I can style this beauty a different way. Think with a chandelier earring. Or maybe a sock and strappy heel. Maybe a dramatic hat and black boot. A statement gown like this one is meant to lived and loved for years to come. 

This is how I want to feel going into 2019: super shiny.

VERSACE VERSACE VERSACE

Earrings: Annika Inez. Dress, Legging, Bag, and Heel: Versace

The Versace Pre-Fall ’19 just debuted last night right here in NYC. What an iconic event! I went all out in this head-to-toe Versace velvet power look for the night. At my fitting, I fell madly in love with these warm jewel tones and fierce cheetah print. It’s decadent. It’s sexy. It’s fun. It’s over-the-top. It’s everything I love and admire in Donatella Versace and her designs. They are truly fearless. They turn heads. They never leave your memory. The way she uses gold is beyond. I can spot a Versace piece from a mile away with just the glisten of a gold button in the sun. For Pre-Fall ’19 you’ll see lots of black and white animal prints, along with bright pops pf pink, green, blue, and yellow thrown into the mix. Eclectic to the max and I adore every bit of it.

DIFFERENT WAYS TO WEAR PLAID IN PARIS

Sweater: Maje. Skirt: Gucci. Bag: YSL. earrings: Astley Clarke

These two looks are all about plaid, featuring items in my closet that I wear on repeat. The chunky knit sweater. The statement turtleneck dress. The tweed skirt. Gucci, Lie Sang Bong, and Mulberry. All amazing designers that are taking plaid to the next level. I miss Paris already! When I’m in town for work, the days fly by, and my jet lag is always absolutely insane. I’m a happy girl if I get one second to hit the spa before all the fashion. The holidays don’t slow anything down. Team Suarez is currently wrapping up all of our holiday shoots and campaigns. Think hours at our desk doing final edits, hopping from event to event, and even hosting a few shin-digs of our own. I love taking things offline and really connecting to our community…connecting to all of you! I think taking everything online and moving it offline is so important right now for the longevity of what we do. Making those face-to-face connections and just keeping things real. Plus, there happens to be Pre-Fall runway shows happening right now, this weekend, in NYC. I just saw the Alexander Wang Collection 2 show last night, and I’ll be over at Versace’s show this evening. I can always expect the unexpected this time of year. The inspiration just keeps on going! So much sparkle and so little time, but it’s all just super exciting! Even with the holiday rush and go, go, go, it’s that time of year where I hit refresh. I’ve already booked my flights back to Los Angeles for Christmas. This lady needs a really good long vacation. The sun, my car, and a good soundtrack. I can hardly wait. I’m sticking it out in NYC style until then!
