New York Highlight Part Un- Meeting...wait for it...THE MANREPELLER!

(ugh blogger, why must you arrange my last 2 pics sideways!!!)

During my recent trip, Vogue and Coach hosted a holiday party at Coach's Flagship store on Madison Ave. How did I go to this party you may wonder. It was simple really, one of my favorite bloggers, The Manrepeller, was hosting and she invited her readers. I called, RSVPed, and then boom I'm drinking champagne in the company of Vogue big wigs. It was really quite something and all very exciting because I got to meet one of my style icons and super big time style blogger Leandra Medine. She was very sweet, admitted to me her obsession with redheads, and liked my southern accent and black, glittery manicure. To top it all off Coach gave everyone a custom monogrammed  hang tag for free (I chose baby-blue embossed with gold BB)!  Oh, and congrats to the Manrepeller who just announced her engagement! A true love is someone who doesn't care what you wear no matter how repelling (or fabulous) it is. Hear that boys!?!

Shame, Shame

Ever since I saw this preview last week, it has been haunting me. Not spooky, scary haunting me, more like it's always lingering in the back of my mind haunting me. I think the music has a lot to do with it. Even when it is presented as cold and depressing, New York is still so appealing. And not to mention sexy! NC-17 sexy!!!

$30 or Less! Now That's A Steal

Very David Bowie. I couldn't say no.

Borderline stripper shoes, but I love them! And they are quite comfortable.

Mirrored metallic!!!!!

I was so excited to find these because they reminded me of these Alexander Wang beauties.

Love the classic fold over shape in a bright color.

Out of all my button-downs, these are the best fit. Go Old Navy!!! What a pleasant and thrifty surprise!

Chunky and Spiky on my bulletin board. Oh hey Bill!

Just a few bargains I picked up to amp up the winter wardrobe. And, yes I was inspired by The Coveteur  when I took these photos at my house. I couldn't help myself!

I am Thankful for YOU!

Some people may love November for turkey and indians, but I love November because it is the month of my birth. Having my birthday and Thanksgiving just a couple days apart means that I am currently not fitting in my jeans, but that's just part of all of the fun! This year and everyday in fact, I am thankful for my family, friends, naps, splendid little thrills, and of course YOU! Hope you had a wonderful holiday.

Shourouk Jewelry

I love Tom Binns neon colored jewels, so I was not surprised when I fell in love with the French jewelry and accesories  line Shourouk. The pieces are stunning, combining modern twists on classic art deco jewels. I especially love the neon brooch on the friendship bracelet cord! I smell a great DIY, don't you!!! Check out the Shourouk's website for tons of inspiration and if you got the deep pockets, buy you some lovelies and send some over to me too!
