Spring has been cold here in NYC, which has me yearning for the warm summer months. I got excited when the weather warmed up enough over the weekend so I could wear a new top i just bought from Steps New York. The flowy chiffon fabric moves swiftly as I walk, allowing the spring breeze to seep through and cool me down. The most gorgeous part of the top has got to be the back, which features a chain embellishment that accentuates the upper back. The chain can be removed and worn as a necklace, bracelet or headpiece, so it’s multifunctional.
The front of the shirt features a collar adorned with crystals that come to life in the sun as it shimmers in the sun. This is the perfect top for Spring and event summer.
I paired the top with jeans and gold BCBG pumps. Full makeup look and details will be up on Instagram, so visit me there!
Last weekend was a beautiful spring day here in NYC, so I decided to pull out one of my favorite tops and paired it with jeans and heels a for a chic, but casual spring day outing. The top features a shimmery gold fabric with a teal stripe pattern, perfect for celebrating the sunshine and warmer weather.
For my makeup I kept it simple wearing Flower Beauty lipstick in Ginger Lilly on the lips. Because I was out in the sun, I chose to wear a bronzer with some spf in it, so I wore Physician’s Formula City Glow Daily Defense Bronzer SPF 30. On my eyes, I wore Physican’s Formula Custom Eye Enhancing Extreme Shimmer Gel Cream Shadow & Liner Trio since the shimmers in it nicely matched my top.
What’s your go-to spring chic look?
Jennifer Hudson stunned on the red carpet on March 28th wearing a fabulous black jumpsuit to the 28th annual Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards in Inglewood, California.

Perfect for Spring, here are some black rompers you can wear, inspired by the American Idol starlet.
Last night’s artic temperatures didn’t keep away NYC’s fashion elites who converged at Manhattan’s Chelsea Piers for the 8:30pm Nolcha Fashion Week runway presentation. Prieston, a Hungarian designer, kicked of the show with an amazing collection featuring crystal embellishments, flowing dresses and geometric cutouts. The fall-winter 2015 collection was inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds” which could be seen with the feather design elements adorning some of the pieces, as well as with the colorful, chunky sweaters.
Following Prieston, Ann Himsel, an NYC-based designer debuted her first collection completely inspired by menswear colors, style, fabrics, and silhouettes. Strong, structured pieces emerged one by one with a sophisticated feminine flare sneaking through the masculine undertones.
Finally, Danny Nguyen Couture closed out the evening with stunning evening gowns that mesmerized the audience, with soft, luxurious fabrics, lace and detailed craftsmanship seen in the intricate use of fabric floral and crystals. It was also the only collection of the night to insert bright pops of color, with reds and magenta.
Check out some of the photos below to see pieces from each of the designers.

America Ferrera looked amazing as she arrived outside the ITV Studios. Here’s how you can copy her look. But, it you don’t want to make the celebrity splurge, I also provided some options that incorporate the same pattern (black polka dots against red) that will be much friendlier on your wallet.

Not all of us can afford to spend $500 just on one shirt. Just because America rocked an expensive blouse, doesn’t mean you can’t draw inspiration from her look to cater it in a way that works for you – make the black polka dots on red look work for you without breaking the bank with one of these options.
Take the style a bit further by wearing the pattern as a dress:

A few weeks ago I attended an event where I was introduced to Bandelettes, a brand that produces thigh bands to relieve all of the uncomfortable problems of inner thigh chafing that many women encounter when wearing skirts and dresses.
What is chafing? It’s the irritation skin may experience due to the repetitive friction from a specific area, such as the thighs, rubbing together. Bandelettes prevents this problem, with an exclusive trademarked and patented design that features non-slip silicon on the underside of elastic lace that lightly wraps thighs and stays in place. The result: no more redness and soreness and the elimination of messy powders or lotions. Moreover, the garment is not just functional, but aesthetically pleasing, as the 6-inch long chic lace can provide a sexy peek-a-book look to rev up any outfit.
