Snapshot: Shopbop Club Monaco Launch Event + Contest!

13 Oct

Tonight I attended a fashion-filled night at the Club Monaco flagship store to celebrate their new e-commerce launch with my favorite online retailer, Shopbop! The collection was hand selected by Shopbop’s fashion director, Kate Ciepluch and she is ah-mazing! Now to be honest, if I had the wallet I’d buy 90% of what was in store tonight but the items that will be featured on Shopbop starting tomorrow are truly the crème de la crème of the collection.

I will be posting photos from the event including a gorgeous leopard coat, gray faux fur vest, a to-die-for shearling moto jacket and much, much more! In the past I have a bought a few pieces here and there from Club Monaco but never have I seen a collection this luxe and chic for winter in this price range. For now, you’ll just have to enjoy my snapshot of the night of what I wore to this fabulous event!

Dress: F21, Purse: Louis Vuitton, Wedges: Jeffrey Campbell, Necklace: Sydney Evans, Tights: Hue, Jewelry detailed below…

You can see my new JC Roks Wedges are totally already getting a beating as I wear them LITERALLY 24/7! My LV Neverfull which was my 21st birthday present and has amazing coloring on the handles but due to a little too many items inside, the top looks bent out of shape, eep! As for my jewelry: Vintage Versace black and gold medusa bracelet (obsessed & courtesy of my momma’s closet), H&M Gold Bangles, Vintage Gruen watch (also my mom’s now mine), and a gorgeous, gold Free People ring. You can’t see my earrings but they’re beautiful gold and opal heart earrings my Dad brought me from Italy when I was only 8 years old. I still love them!

Snapshot: Saturday Night Out.

27 Sep

I love New York City because there is always something to do. If one plan gets cancelled you immediately have ten other options. Yesterday my friends and I had a fun filled day of lunch at Nate Appelman’s Pulino’s, a pitcher of Sangria at the Frying Pan (a boat bar docked on the River), and a night out in the LES. I wasn’t planning an outfit post but when we walked past this fantastic graffiti wall I couldn’t help but pass my camera off for a quick snap!

Random NYC Boutique Dress, Rebecca Minkoff MAC Clutch Bag (c/o Jack a MAC), Jeffrey Campbell Roks Bootie, Vintage Gold Leaf Earrings (see here)  Bracelets detailed below.

3 Gold H&M Bangles, NY Street Vendor Brown Leather Studded Wrap Bracelet, Gold and Opal Vintage Watch (from my mom). Coty Nail Polish (sample gifted–color unknown).


Lately I’ve been wearing this three bracelet combination which instantly adds an edgier effect to any outfit. I love wearing old watches as bracelets with the face down. Almost all my old watches aren’t functioning but thanks to my cell, I never really look at the time on the watch anyways! Luckily (and to my wallet- unluckily) I work in SoHo and jewelry street vendors are absolutely everywhere so I find myself picking up a piece or two every once in awhile on my lunch break. Cheap, chic and totally accessible. I’m trying to make the most out of rooftops and nights out before the harsh New York winter comes and I’ll be stuck with that damn puff coat day after day. But for now, a light jacket or booties will do and I am loving it!
