Closing Out 2016: In Parties & Platforms

A sad, sad event happened circa 2013. All of the Zara’s in a 30 mile radius of Fort Lauderdale closed. Why, you may ask? To be replaced with an H&M. If you live anywhere by Aventura Mall, you may have felt the same pain I did. The closest location is now in South Beach, and as a former patron of the area, I try to avoid SoBe at all costs (if you live here you can understand why). So when I…

‘Twas the Night Before Orlando

I’m going to pull a Golden Girls real quick and quote my girl Sophia. “Picture it: Fort Lauderdale, 2013”. It’s December. I had a huge vacation to New York I had saved the last days of my PTO for. A huge snowstorm was on its way to hit the Northeast and thus, an unintentional annual Christmas tradition was born. Rather than go to NYC, I ended up in the city of my alma mater (go Knights), Orlando. It’s a 3-hour drive up the turnpike and…

Fashion, The Business Bar

Stressed, Well Dressed, & Coffee Obsessed

So far, I’ve stuck to the basics and have talked a lot of fashion- but what about business? As a marketing manager, every day for me is different.

Basically overseeing all optics of what our brands look like, how they’re interpreted, and how I can create brand awareness to…

Chokers, Sweaters, and Faux Leathers

For anyone following the Instagram for this blog, you already know I’m obsessed with this choker. Real talk. I went to three malls in one day just to try to find it because I refused to wait for it to be shipped! This laid-back look is basically my uniform in the winter. You can usually find me in some sort of sweater, a pair of leggings, and of course: my signature booties. While I have at least five different pairs I can…

Winter Whites

Of the many rules in life I choose not to follow, one of them has always been the outdated “no white after Labor Day” rule. Especially in the Winter. Once November hits, you can usually find me wearing a lot of red, a good plaid, obnoxious amounts of faux fur despite being a Florida resident, and of course: my winter whites. From my office to my bedroom, all of my accessories fit in the same white and gold palette. It’s kind of…

Mixing Business with Pleasure

Ok so this was our very first shoot for this blog, ever- and if you can’t tell by my hair or the fringe on my skirt, the wind was out of control. I almost got blown away! It’s been a while since I’ve been out of the corporate day-to-day grind, but the heels in this post hold a special place in my heart. They were my go-to’s for those client-facing days at my first job. Classic and sophisticated, they went with all…
