Memories of New York...

I came upon the pics taken from our FNO trip and remembered what a great and beautiful experience it was. My Mom, friend and co-blogger RebelRane and I had the best time of our lives and I hope we can all make this an annual thing. From bright lights, celebrity sightings and even running into our old friend walking the streets of NY, the night was never-ending with fun and surprises!

We had just arrived at our hotel and the view was amazing.

We did a little (okay a LOT lol) sightseeing

Quick photo-op at one of our favorite stores

The incredibly sculptured Saks

We thought this photo was pretty...interesting lol

The scarf continues as a 'hot' item for fall

We want one for every coat, every look; justifying we can never own too many.

This season MARC by MARC JACOBS has a fabulous selection of the trendy squares, offering feminine but bold prints and lengths, like the super chic polka dot shown here:

FYI: This long style provides options for altering your look each time you wear. Try a few of these knotted wonders on for size:

Giving thanks...

Yes, the official day for giving thanks is officially one week away.

Send your holiday cards for those too far away for visiting.

And if you will be partaking in someone else's feast, substitute bringing your 'famous cobbler' with a special gift for the host. Everyone loves the scents of cranberry, pies, stuffings and such, but when the plates are cleared away and the guests have dispersed, they're left with the lingering but fading aromas- that citrus scented dish soap isn't going to do the trick.

May I suggest a home fragrance, candle?

Yankee makes some yummy scents. Lemon lavender could be perfect for a calming after dinner atmosphere.
It's an extension of your inner fashionista goodness.

*side scoop* Ulta is currently offering a free gift with $30 fragrance purchases. Dig in!

November has arrived, and although in some places the hot and cold weather are playing a game of cat and mouse, there is a distinct nip in the air and bite in the breeze. We're probably still weeks away from the bitter cold- not yet white, but definitely grey.

As a nod to Fashionista V and her love of H&M, I encourage all fashionistas to check out the Grey Collection for women. Knits, sweats and wools (great for layering), seem to be the bulk of the pieces, but I must say the leather jacket and shoes are very cool staples for the transitioning winter wardrobe. Not for the super overly cute girly girl work closet, but something she can definitely change into for fun, or darker, grey moments.

My suggestion is to grab any lighter weight fabrics offered at your nearest H&M location before months' end and slip them into your day to day mix. The more costly jackets and boots can be placed on your wish list for the holiday so you gradually have the best of the Grey world.

Fashion's Night Out

Hey there. Well, I've been away roaming the streets of New York City with my mom and my friend/ FAMF partner Neci. Now finally back home and I have the opportunity to share my photos and incredible experiences in photos with you...very excited!

Did you attend the event in NYC or in your town?

My top and skirt was by H&M; bibbed necklace from Forever 21 and YSL pumps.
At the amazing garment district at Fashion Ave. 

Neci and me on the red carpet after the show.

My stylish mother who wore all vintage topped off with her classic Chanel bag.

The countdown's a Sneak Peek Preview

In less than an hour, F.N.O. will be just 4 days away!

S.P.P.- Day 4's Sneak Peek Preview is 'solely' about shoes, shoes, shoes.  A nod to the versatility of fashion, selections are boldly different and each hold their own. 

Delicate bows and fabric whisper dainty blues over toes. Stark white crochets defy the upcoming fall season's color palette; holding on to the spirit of summer for the Big Apple. Daring black strappy stilettos scream moon time play; perfect for the twilight following an evening of shopping. Perhaps an animal print is in order?

                                  These shoes were made for walking, and that's just what they'll do

(Wanna see more? As the countdown continues, FAMF will provide more peeks of pics and fun details of a few of the wardrobe picks FashionistaV plans to rock and roll out for Fashion's Night Out in NY. Stay posted for more on S.P.P. )


5 More Days Until......FASHION'S NIGHT OUT


    I'll be in New York for the FIRST time in my life and I am SO excited for it to be for FNO! Along for the fabulous ride and memories will be my Mom and two of my good friends.

    I am stoked to see DVF, Solange who will be the DJ at DVF, Marc Jacobs, Victoria Beckham, Chanel Iman, Doutzen Kroes, Michael Kors, (hubby in my head) Usher, Kim Kardashian and Dwayne Wade.The list of celeb appearances go on and on, and there is NO telling who else will pop up! Either way, I'm totally anxious for the next 5 days to pass lol!

   Fashionistas, it's not just in NYC, if you follow fashion, you will know that this event is worldwide and most retailers participate in hosting their FNO event. Check your city guide for parties in your area!

   There will be lots of shopping, fab people, editors, stylists, bloggers and so many prizes and giveaways I can't wait! Just sitting here TYPING about it is getting me fired up! AAAHH!

I'll be there. Will YOU be there?

Maison Martin Margiela

Every November is a new designer collabo and this year definately will not disappoint. This November 8th, Maison Martin Margiela is the designer for H&M's limited time collection! The French designer is coming and in full force! From cashmere sweaters and dresses to severe leather pieces, it is SURE to get your credit cards burning! Just in time for the holidays! So fashionistas, clear your credit cards and LOAD your H&M gift cards! It's about to be some SERIOUS swiping!

H&M has done it again!

You all know how much I love H&M (it's literally my 2nd home!) Well, this year they will have TWO designer collaborations...back to back! This October, October 4th to be exact, Editor-in-chief of Japanese Vogue Anna Dello Russo will create an accessories line with the mass fashion retailer! Only problem? It will only be in select locations...bummer! And guess what? If you are an Atlanta resident, like myself, you won't be able to shop it. This is SO unfair and unfortunate, but if you are a die-hard fashionista like me, you'll travel to your nearest H&M that WILL carry her line to buy a few of her pieces! LOL! If that's not convincing you enough, or you haven't seen a preview of her collection, here's a sneak peak!

Are you lusting, yet??

Check THIS out!

I am UBER-excited for the newest collection launch for Macy's IMPULSE collaboration. Who is it you ask? The one and only, MY favorite celeb socialite turned designer, NICOLE RICHIE!! I've found a video Macy's recently uploaded and decided to share with you all. I can't WAIT for this to come to my nearest location! Her line is scheduled to hit September 12!

Lookbook photos are coming soon!

Hair...Styling Inspirations

OMG! How cool are these hairstyles?! Talk about lettering your hair! I would have never thought to do this; this is particularly awesome to do if your name starts with either I, J, O, U, V, X or Y. I will surely be trying this out! LoL. Which one will you try?

I wish MY hair would maintain this look lol. Practice make perfect, though, right?

Corinne Bailey-Rae looks flawless with her chic, curly locks. And the maroon lip....? perfection!

How fun and gorgeous is this messy fishtail braid? <3 p="p">

I was feeling bright today! I love the mint color (for any season) and I wanted to give this bright, neon pink a try. I'm usually not as bold with color, but i'm starting to step outside my comfort zone nowadays lol.

I can't help but post a few more pics from my Miami trip. What memories. Have you ever been to M.I.A?

What a beautiful city, right?! It's very artsy and full of talented people.

Journey to Miami

Hey there!
  So I've been out of the cyber loop for a while, but for good reasoning! My job sent me to the wonderful and fabulous South Beach Miami for three months and can I just say that those were the best three months this year! I met so many awesome people, gained new friends and made so many lasting and great memories. If I could rewind time and live it again, I would!
  I captured as many pictures as possible and would like to share them with you of course. Here's just a select few!...

Such a GORGEOUS city with gorgeous people. I literally did NOT want to leave lol! I am strongly considering moving here one day...when I get my life together I will most def have a home here. It's very tourist-y, yet home-y as well.
