{ Steal Of The Week } Prom Shoes Aren’t Just For High Schoolers

On Friday I chatted prom fashion on Fox29 (and Vivica Fox was guest hosting!!). Saturday came and I hosted Lord & Taylor’s prom fashion show (so much fun!!). Now it’s Sunday and I’m window shopping prom styles, shoes specifically. Is there a prom coming up for me? No, but that’s no reason not to want to dress up. Now, I know a ball gown won’t fit in with most people’s lifestyle (nor is it my style), but a great pair of party pumps never fail to add glamour to even jeans and a tee. Let’s skip the dresses and head straight to the fabulous footwear. Here are some special shoes fit for prom, a swanky soirée, or just chilling … and they’re all on sale.

LifeSTYLE Tip: Wear special pieces on the regular to make everyday special.

{ Dare To Wear } Colorful Is The New Black

Happy Birthday to me! I’m officially a year older today and I thought a bright outfit was in order to greet my 27th year of life. Spring is on the horizon (though there’s also a snow storm coming for Philadelphia tomorrow), so at least this look helps me think warm thoughts. I’m also thinking lots of positive thoughts too and being really reflective. Birthdays tend to do that to me, and holidays in general.

So I thought I’d share a little more about me in this post than just style tips. Here are seven random facts, since 27 seems like overkill.

1. I’m not naturally a morning person, like at all. I’ve been slowly training myself to become one but at least once a week get off track.

2. My hair has always been really dark. I came out of the womb with this hair, though I highlight it and color my gray roots (yup!). Continue Reading

{ Photo Diary } Inside Jewelry Designer Marlyn Schiff’s Showroom

I love jewelry and lately you may have noticed that Marlyn Schiff pieces have been making cameos here on the blog and my Instagram. It probably has to do the fact that everything is beautiful, budget friendly, and that I had the pleasure of meeting Marlyn and visiting her Ardmore showroom last month. I had featured a few blingy baubles from the celebrity-loved line in TV segments and blog posts so it was exciting to finally get to learn more about the brand and meet the creator.

First of all, it’s a wonderland of pretty things. There’s jewelry everywhere, of course, and the vibe is a little boho and free spirited yet glamorous and fashionable. There’s dainty cuffs and chain necklaces, blingy statement pieces, stunning stones, and most pieces are under $100.  I felt inspired to take it all in, try on a few pieces, and go a little snap happy. Here are some pictures from my visit. Hope you like! I’ll be sharing more pictures of places I go and things I do with the header { Photo Diary }. Continue Reading

{ Best Dressed } 2015 Oscar Fashion

Hollywood’s finest stepped out dressed to impress (and some didn’t) for the 87th Academy Awards.  As I watched from home last night a few dresses had me flip flopping. One second I wasn’t a fan, and a minute later I was moving the style to my best-dressed list. This morning I joined Fox29′s Good Day Philadelphia to chat about the Oscar fashions. It’s always a good day when I get to visit Good Day (corny, but true). Here are my top five fashion favorites from the 2015 Oscars. Continue Reading
