Love Me Like You Do

I decided to go for a low key celebration for my 10 year anniversary…a trip to the movies. What did I go see? Fifty Shades of Grey of course. It was the perfect movie for the occasion. The soundtrack is also a great listen if you want to get in the mood. I took a risk and dressed up for love and not necessarily for the weather. (Lol). Nothing says L-O-V-E like a LRD (little red dress). I went with a 50’s meets the 90’s vibe in my faux fur and choker combination.

How do you all think I pulled off my look? Did you watch Fifty Shades this past weekend? What did you think?

Match Made In Heaven

It’s been too cold (freezing actually) in New York, and my photographer has been working on some other projects lately and will be for another week or so, but I’m finally back! The best way to improvise with such tragic conditions is to share my daily outfits from inside my apartment, which is still under renovations. I have very little furniture to move around and can easily use any wall for a back drop! (And he takes good photos too).
For a late night friend’s birthday dinner, I wore a very cool piece from H&M. Really, I fell in love with the thumb hole at the end of the sleeves and so I had to have it. It sort of looked like boxing gloves and made me feel real tough wearing it. Surprisingly this is something I can see myself wearing over and over again. My style is written all over it: black, has a turtleneck and fits like a glove.
How are you all on the East Coast surviving the cold?
What has been your go to clothing item this Winter?

Super Bowl 2015

Congratulations to the New England Patriots! I’d like to give a special thanks to BAREBURGER (located at 85 Second Avenue, NY, NY 10003) for being such wonderful hosts! It’s one of my favorite New York City brunch spots.

This Winter I’m loving all of Forever 21’s outerwear. I had to have this faux suede aviator coat, it’s not too bright (I’m trying more color now so when it’s time for Summer outfits I won’t be too afraid to go all out) and very warm if you ask me. I’m not a die hard football fan, but I do love all the excitement it brings when it’s Super Bowl Sunday. Instead of dressing up according to the team I was routing for, I wore a tee that said, “I kinda of like football, but let’s not go overboard”. The shirt actually came with a New York City “logo” on the front pocket that I tore off and then had it sewed. It was more me that way. I’ve realized that you can not only alter something to your height, but also your liking. I over accessorized because I felt too plain on a day such as Super Bowl Sunday, it was my way of cheerleading without the pompoms. Some red pumps to keep it look feminine, then I changed into my lug boots because I totally forgot that it was going to start snowing in the middle of game time here in New York City. So much for that. I am from…and I love New York, but why so cold? Ugh!

I also love how people all over the World come together to support American Football. I read that about 100 million people watched the game! Love me some sports and lots of love.

Did you watch the game on Sunday?
What are your favorite sports to watch?
