Dress Like A Celebrity- Jessica Alba

I love this look for so many reasons. It includes three things I adore: the color pink, a simple sheath style, and Jessica Alba. I swear she always looks flawless and so put together. What she understands is the importance of simplicity. This Roland Mouret dress looks like it was made for her body. Perfection.

Not all of us can afford a designer frock, but I was able to put together a few similar and affordable alternatives for my readers.

Mini Cap Sleeve Sheath Dress available at The Limited- $98

Ivanka Trump Side Zip Crepe Sheath Dress available at Nordstrom- $138

Cue the Bijou Dress available at ModCloth- $79.99

Friday is here people! Now let's go out and live it up! I started my weekend a tad bit early by taking the day off. But, it wasn't all fun and games. I had a doctor's appointment this afternoon and the L train left me down BIG TIME. After waiting on a train sitting in the Bedford station they made us get off of it after 20 minutes as it was not going to run. So there I was scrambling to get on the bus to take the J to the 5...to the Upper East Side. UGH! If you live in my neighborhood you know how annoying it is when this happens. 

Anyway...my weekend is here...and I'm going to enjoy it! Great autumn weather, hitting up an event at Space Ninety 8 tonight, and probably going to the Brooklyn Night Bazaar tomorrow night. 

What are your weekend plans???

The Calm Before The Storm

dress: H&M/ fringe bag: H&M/ necklace: Urban Outfitters/ belt: Kohl's/ 

For all of you that are not currently in NYC, do not be fooled by all of the fashionistas in town for NYFW wearing their fall best. For an entire week now it has been super hot and humid. I threw on one of my lightest dresses today...because even with my new hairstyle I can't stop sweating! The good news is that there are some storms moving in and it should cool off tomorrow. Just in time as I have a rooftop BBQ to attend tomorrow! Yay!

The one thing everyone needs for fall is something with fringe on it! Fringe is so huge right now. I keep it simple by showing off my fringe on my handbag. But if you are a little more bold try the fringe trend on your boots, jackets, or dresses. No matter how you wear it you'll be looking good.

Can I just say that I'm seriously obsessed with my new flats. They make me feel like a ballerina...and I got them way on sale. The best part is, we walked a lot this morning and my feet didn't hurt one bit. No blisters at all. #winning

My husband insisted on taking my photo with this ad. He thought it was hilarious...and it is. I guess it is for some new cartoon on Adult Swim. Too funny.

What are you all up to this weekend? How are you beating the heat???

New York Fashion Week on the Horizon

New York Fashion Week is practically here! Even though tomorrow marks the official start, a number of shows, events, and parties have already started. There are so many things I'm looking forward to over the next week.

I also am really looking forward to meeting up with some of my favorite bloggers that will be in town. Can't wait! If you are going to be in NYC let me know. I won't be too available during the day as I'll be at work...but would love to meet up with people on the evenings and weekends.

Links with Style

I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend! It's been rather gloomy here in NYC, but I'm not letting that spoil it. So far it has been full of tons of long walks, a Broadway show, and hanging out with my favorite pup. Perfection.

I thought I'd put together a list of my favorite links this week. Enjoy---

~Guys love J.Crew gingham shirts...for real. FYI, this is hilarious.

~Janis Joplin's niece, Malyn Joplin, has a new clothing line out called Made for Pearl which is inspired by her aunt. If you know how much I adore Janis Joplin, you can surely understand how much I'm obsessed with this line.

~Bella Hadid just signed with IMG models. She's the 17-year-old daughter to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster and sister to 19-year-old Sports Illustrated model Gigi Hadid.

~Kelly Osbourne is launching her first contemporary fashion line for women. Her line, Stories...By Kelly Osbourne, will become available on HSN on September 25th.

In other news...I chopped my hair! I said goodbye to my long locks and hello to a new look. My favorite salon, HeadChop, hooked me up with a long angled bob and I think it is adorable.

Look of the Day- When Summer Meets Autumn

Look of the Day

1) Carla Crossbody available at Banana Republic- $69.50 $52
2) Finn Tank available at Anthropologie- $98
4) 1969 High-Rise Skinny Skimmer Jeans available at Gap- $69.95
5) Snakeskin Pattern Leather Pumps available at Zara- $119

Not that I'm complaining...but we haven't really had much summer weather yet. So when it comes to deciding what to wear, I've been so clueless lately. The middle of the day is in the low 80s...but the evenings have been in the low 60s. What to wear, what to wear!?!?! I don't know about you all, but the crisp evenings makes me want to start breaking out some autumn inspired looks. A perfect way to do this is simply with colors. Mixing light denim (super summery) with some navy pumps (hello autumn!) is a great way to transition and get ready for my favorite season. Fall just never really lasts long enough, does it? *sigh*
