Echo Design x Hunt Slonem

Fur Jacket Zara | Denim Shirt Thrifted | Jeans Odyn | Boots Zara | Infinity Scarf azul by MOUSSY | Bag Zara | Scarf Echo Design | Belt Thrifted | Watch Swell Vision 

This post is a collaboration post with my boo Victoria from Vic Styles. We both received the Hunt Slonem Limited Edition Butterfly Fields Silk Square Scarf from Echo Design and are styling it our own way. Be sure to head over to her blog, Vic Styles, to see how she styled her blog. 

I knew I wanted to pair mine with my Zara fur jacket. I wanted to keep my outfit pretty neutral and keep the focus on my scarf and clearly the jacket. I kept with the simplicity with barely any jewelry and added my Swell Vision, Sand Dollar watch. I was given the opportunity to receive a scarf from Echo Design's new capsule collection which portrays the artwork of American artist Hunt Slonem. Slonem's iconic bunnies and butterflies displayed on their scarves and bags. You can view the entire collection HERE. I can't wait to rock this scarf this spring and summer and pair it with some brighter pieces.

WarPaint International Launch Party

Hair Transformation Station
Make-up Touch Up Bar
Founders Samuel and Jessica Mae Koza

During fashion week I had the pleasure of attending the WarPaint International Beauty Agency Launch Party. WarPaint International is the leading agency for New York wedding make-up. I'm not getting married anytime soon but I'm definitely all about make-up these days. Don't live in NEw York, don't fret they also have services available in California and Minneapolis. The way the agency works is you sign up for a subscription service and they do your hair or make-up where you are, home, office or even the back of a cab. Have an event right after work? Why not get glammed up beforehand with out all the Do It Yourself stress.

The launch party featured signature Aviv 613 cocktails, hair touch up station presented by Shu Uemura Art of Hair and make-up touch up stations presented by Sigma Beauty. And of course my favorite part of the evening, the photo booth, fully equipped with props. :) I opted to get my make-up touched up and "Prepare for Battle" as their motto suggests. Overall it was a great night filled with beauty and  beautiful people. Be sure to check out WarPaint International for all your beauty service needs.

NYFW: Day 1

Coat Urban Outfitters | Vest INC | Long Sweater H&M | Dress Taisse (Thrifted) | Tights Kushy Foot | Boots Ecote | Sunglasses Oliver Peoples | Socks Dr. Scholls | Bag Nila Anthony | Hand Warmers DIY | Infinity Scarf AZUL by moussy
Today marks the start of one of the best weeks in the year, New York Fashion Week. I went to the Tadashi Shoji show at Lincoln Center and the Big Park show near central park. Today I opted for a more minimal monochromatic look. I found this cocoon coat at +Urban Outfitters for only $20. I can't wait to transition it to spring. I went for al black underneath for a more chic look. I layered for the gods since this coat isn't the thickest. I went for a simple LBD that has the longest sleeves ever which is the best since I have a really long arms and its a really warm sweater material. I went to two events, pics will be posted soon.

Dress for the Snow

Coat H&M | Faux Fur Vest INC | Dress H&M | Tights Kushyfoot | Boots Chooka | Socks Forever 21 | Bag Nila Anthony | Earmuffs Plentifull Boutique | Necklace and Earrings Vintage | Watch Diesel | Lipstick Revlon - Shameless

As the snow keeps falling the days I'm able to wear dresses out of the house are dwindling. Today I layered my tights again with leggings, my thigh high socks, rain boots and took to the snow.  I wanted to dress this dress down a bit by pairing them with my rain boots. I added a skinny belt to create a bit more definition at my wait and accessorized with gold jewelry and accents. 

I arrived in DC Grand Central terminal and as I waited for my cousin to arrive, I discovered they had a H&M. So of course I went in, Large suitcase and all, to try some things on. I tried this dress on but it was a bit too small  :(. Fast forward a few days, the day after Christmas to be exact, I'm in another H&M and find the dress in my size :D. So I just had to take it home, plus it was 50% off the already marked sale price. The long sleeve and sweater material make it a perfect skater dress for F/W.  What's your perfect winter dress look like?
