Perfect Parker










Dress, Parker. Boots, Sam Edelman. Leather jacket, Playboy.

Toto, we’re not in New York City anymore. I’ve jetted off to Arizona to spend Thanksgiving with my brother, who was nice enough to snap these pics of me on the way to a delicious dinner. (You can see more behind the scenes from the day and my trip on Snapchat: wanderlust-girl.)

After a recent visit to the Parker showroom I had found the perfect Parker Thanksgiving dress! Bronze is like Turkey day gold. I usually don’t go for such a warm color, but I couldn’t resist those sheer cut outs *swoon* I’m slightly obsessed with cacti, so the scenery is the perfect backdrop. We’re just lucky I didn’t eat cacti in these 5″ heels! Okay, back to the look.

I paired it with a pair of over-the-knee boots to make it a bit more family appropriate. I guess you wouldn’t really think this type of boot would be “family appropriate,” but it makes the dress not so bare legged. The nights can get a little cold in Arizona so I threw on my go to leather jacket for later in the evening, when we had wine by the fire. Such a wonderful thanksgiving and SO much to be thankful for. Hope you all had an amazing day with family and friends!

Now for some Black Friday shopping 😉

Airport Looks


(T-shirt, ACNE Studios. Scarf, Alexander McQueen. Boyfriend jeans, Rag and Bone. Hat, ASOS. Boots, Castañer. Bag, Celine. Headphones, Dolce & Gabbana. Sunnies, Dior.)


(Snakeskin boots, Isabel Marant. Headphones, Frends. Passport cover, Etsy. Leather jacket, IRO. Hangry shirt, Romwe. Denim, True Religion. Fur stole, Miss Selfridge.)

I honestly have no idea how celebs always look so cool at the airport!?! I’ve been Pinteresting the shit out of it and what I’ve discovered is a bunch of super simple looks on beautiful people. Although, there is a method to their madness. For one, no pajamas… sorry guys. I pulled together a few options of airport looks (that I’m sure you already own) that would be perfect paired together when jetting off for the holidays.

Things to keep in mind: the plane is ALWAYS frigid! Bring some sort of “cool” jacket like this IRO leather or a toasty scarf. All you need for the base is a t-shirt and jeans. I prefer some boyfriends or a comfortable pair of skinnies. (For the business women out there you have to check out Betabrand for sneaky comfortable work pants!) Don’t wear too much metal. Security will be a pain in the ass as it always is, but there is nothing worse than a full on pat down by airport employees, believe me. If you really want to get the celeb look going grab a great big bag, sunnies and a hat, you know, for dodging all those paparazzi 😉

What do you think of my Betabrand WanderLust Wardrobe challenge?

Today’s Drink:

“Reunion Tour”
(Bloom gin, chamomile, grapefruit, lime, absinthe.)

Drexler’s –9 Avenue A

So, I’ve been trying really hard lately to get into gin. I still don’t love it in a basic mixed drink because I feel like it tastes like a Christmas wreath. However, the new cocktail bar Drexler’s had me sold with this gin/absinthe concoction. Two very strong flavors, but with the chamomile and grapefruit I was smitten by this drink. If you haven’t yet been to Drexler’s, formerly Ella, stop by for gorgeous interior design and finely crafted alcoholic beverages.

Little Fur Riding Hood









Emily – Cape, Zara. Sweater, Brandy Melville. Tights, HUE. Boots, Aldo. Sunnies, Banana Republic.

I feel like a new woman, my roots have been restored to their ultra dyed blonde state! My hair salon, MIZU, is located just down the street from Zara. I have to pass by it every time I go into the subway to head home. This time, I decided to pop in for a second to see what was new. This cape was the first thing I picked up, and it was love at first sight. I feel like Little Red Riding Hood except more like little fur riding hood when I wear it.

I’m all about finding great sweaters and actual warm clothing this year. I remember just a few years ago when I was in my early 20s, and I choose an apartment because it was located across from this awesome dive bar, The Edge. We could run across the street without having to put a jacket on…….. so sad. My winter jacket was a little leather coat. I was delusional, and usually sick. So here is to many more warm clothing items this Fall/Winter.

Uniqlo Outfit

uniqlo skirt

Hat, Free People. Aviators, Ray-Ban. Top & skirt, Uniqlo. Bag, Etienne Aigner. Boots, Ritch Erani.

I’ve been holding on to this matching sweatshirt and skirt look for a couple months wondering when the right day would be to wear it. I woke up pleased to find out it was mid 60’s today, and instantly grabbed it. This could be the most perfect outfit for me, because I prefer to be comfortable and casual, while still boasting a little flare. I love a matchy-matchy look these days, and for it to be so soft is a huge win. It’s almost like an updated version of a vintage cheerleader uniform. To make sure I wasn’t too leggy, I wore my high boots.

Festive Jewelry

4 Festive Jewelry Looks for a Party

It’s the holiday season, and that means it’s time for family, friends and lots and lots of parties! This time of year presents a rare opportunity to put on your fanciest outfit and hit the town. No outfit is complete, however, without small personal touches and jewelry is a great way to take any outfit from ordinary to extraordinary! You don’t need a lot, either. Often just one fine piece of jewelry or a watch can make a statement. Here are four festive jewelry looks that can work for any party!

Make a Statement with a Necklace

According to You Queen, you can really make a statement by taking some of your necklaces and mixing them together. Go for various shapes, sizes and lengths to add interest to your outfit. Just make sure you stop at only a few strands, because you don’t want to look like Mr. T!

If you would like to try something different, go for a choker or bib. If you wear a piece like this then you need to remember to make it a solo statement. Any other jewelry would just take away from the beauty and majesty of this statement piece.

If you go for a necklace then make sure you wear an open neckline to accentuate your baubles, but if you have an outfit with a higher neckline just choose a draping necklace instead of one that fits closer to the neck.

When it comes to necklaces, you merely have to consider the vibe you want to go for. Colorful beads add a bit of a bohemian feel while silver chains can punk it up. Pearls will give you that prim and proper air.


You have a lot of choices when it comes to earrings. Small studs can be great if you like to add just a small touch of glamour to your wardrobe. They may be a little glitzier than what you wear every day too, so that helps to denote that this is a special occasion. reports that chandelier earrings are for drawing attention! If you decide to don these beauties just makes sure you don’t overwhelm your outfit with a lot of other jewelry. You don’t need anything else because these earrings are so stunning!

Drop earrings are dainty, and are the place where chandelier and studs meet. If you can’t decide between either of those then these are the chic choice. They are also a great opportunity to work color into your look.

Rings and Brooches

There are many types of rings you can add to your wardrobe. A cocktail dress is a great opportunity to break out that chunky ring and let it shine.

You could also consider stacking your rings to add a bit of funky flair, according to Forbes. To do it right you need to make sure you choose rings with flat edges or single stones that can easily stack on top of one another.

Make sure you do not wear a ring on every finger; you’re not trying to channel the Queen of England. One ring per hand is just right. You just need to remember that wearing an attention-grabbing ring means those digits need to be well groomed!

Don’t be afraid to wander into the land of the brooch either. They may make you think of your grandmother, but they actually are quite chic when done right. If you are wearing a more masculine silhouette, such as blazer or a button up, add them for a touch of feminine flair.

You can also buy small brooches and cluster them together to add some visual interest to your outfit – just try to make sure they are the same genre, like art deco. And remember that a brooch doesn’t have to just on your lapel, you can use them at your hip or to fasten a scarf – even as a closure for your cardigan.

Adorn Your Arms

Bracelets and watches are a great accent to any holiday party outfit. You can always go with a stacked bangle look as long as you stick with one finish in varying sizes. Though you may not want to wear so many bracelets that people know you’re coming by the jangling they hear before you have turned the corner!

If you want to stack your bracelets then you need to be wearing an outfit that has short sleeves or has the arms rolled up. You want people to actually be able to see the creation you have made!

For the men in the crowd, you may want to consider Audemars Piguet men’s watches available on TrueFacet to add a statement piece to your wardrobe. TrueFacet has many colors, shapes and sizes available that will complement any wardrobe choice for the holiday season and beyond. Paring a great watch with a wide cuffed shirt is always a winning combination, too.

Whatever look you choose for the holiday season, remember that adding jewelry is a great way to make a statement and to let your personality shine through!

Edi and the Wolf


Today’s Drink:

“Fall of Franz”
(Bourbon, amaro, suze, ginger, lemon juice, honey.)

Edi and the Wolf –102 Avenue C

I’m never much of a bourbon girl, but once you throw in ginger, lemon juice, and honey, it’s hard for me to say no. This is the perfect blend of flavors for any season. If you haven’t been to Edi and the Wolf yet, I highly recommend it for a Fall date spot!
