I’m such a homebody and so I love discovering brands that are all about comfort…like the B Collection by Bobeau. They just launched their beautiful B Collective NYC Co-Op pop-up in the Meatpacking District (10 West 14th Street NYC 10014) and I’m in love. It’s a warm, cozy haven of goodies from a variety of lovable labels that make you just want to curl up by the fire place. Nubby knits. Chic drawstring pants. An espresso bar. Cozy shearling slippers. Everything I need when I get that lucky day to work from home. Funny enough, I’ve got my lemon ginger tea and wearing this exact same outfit again today. The perfectly lightweight and soft blouse and palazzo pant. When I’m heading out for the night, all I need to add are a vintage hat and some realllly statement leopard boots. Easy, but still flattering. When the fashion world throws you so many trends, color palettes, and prints each season, you suddenly realize that all you’ve been missing are the necessary not-at-all basic, basics. Don’t worry, I got you covered.
I fell madly in love with the super chic and minimal Morgane Le Fay store in Soho. I remember being a kid and walking down Montana Ave in Santa Monica just going ga-ga. My obsessed started there. I get the same feeling here in NYC. Recently, I’ve been investing in quality, simple pieces that I’ll keep forever. Unique shapes in out of this world delicate fabrics. Like this off shoulder dress that from a distance, looks shapeless, but with it’s one front tuck stitched so perfectly at the hip, it’s immediately transformed into something angelic and feminine. That’s what the designer does. Tweaks classic shapes into something unexpected and beautiful. I like to give them a fun spin with a good pair of leather clogs, and of course my layered on silver jewels. How killer is this ostrich skirt and star-studded blouse? Styling this for the streets is going to be FUN.

For me, rules are always meant for breaking. Especially when it comes to what I wear. I love metallics, and when spotted this beautiful gold skirt at YOOX, I knew I had to have it. My current rule breakers? Wearing your metallics in the day time. Trust me, not all glitter and shine is meant for those sassy nights out. You know you can find me pairing my party skirt with a classic Jonathan Saunders sweater, and Acne trench coat. All of which I found at YOOX. Their designer selection is absolutely insane and so easy to shop. The great thing about a transitional, out of this world piece like this skirt, is that I can easily switch to a silk tank and neck scarf for night. But for day, I keep it cozy and daring, unafraid of the sun reflecting off this beauty! YOOX’s designer selection is eclectic just like me. Mixing it up is the art of it all. And with that, I can easily break the rules with whatever I feel like wearing. So long as your proportions and colors are just right, it’s so fun to surprise everyone with your wild ensemble that just looks like it was made for you. So for now, I’ll be constantly browsing the designers at YOOX, because with the holidays, I know I can score a killer deal…like these Opening Ceremony booties.
My gal pals are all inner rock n’ roll stars. We love going to see concerts at Baby’s All Right. We love shopping together. We love leopard, studs, fur coats, skinny neck scarves, victorian age blouses that cinch high up on our necks. But most importantly, we LOVE to share our clothes. Luckily we are all super tall and share the same shoe size. There will definitely be times where I haven’t seen my leather jacket for over 6 months, but that’s the amazing thing about friendships. Your friends are around at all time when you need them (even when you need that leather jacket). Right now, I’ve been doing a lot of online shopping. TOPSHOP is my go-to. And this season, I’ve got a REBEL REBEL thing going on under the tree. Ankle boots that’ll make any boy swoon. Multi-colored faux fur coats for glam nights out in Manhattan. And of course, my personal favorite: a good Western belt, because it’s always the last thing I throw on my favorite pair of high waisted jeans. Flattering classics with a twist. Plus, knowing you can borrow is always a plus.
And now you can create your very own TOPSHOP “WANT LIST” and share it with your friends. Maybe you will get just what you wished for!
