Hope everyone had a good weekend! Ours was pretty low key and since it was raining we hung out indoors and watched movies and played! I wanted to let you all know that I will be hosting an event at Lord & Taylor’s Birdcage this Thursday, March 19th here in NYC. Birdcage is an in-store concept pop-up shop on the second floor of Lord & Taylor’s flagship Manhattan location. It’s focus is on clothing, accessories, cosmetics, tech and home goods all by emerging NYC designers. It’s going to be so much fun and I would love to meet any of you that are going to be around and can make it! There’s going to be music, cocktails, and even a braid bar:) I’ll be highlighting a few of my favorite Birdcage picks, as well as my must-have spring selections on the 2nd floor for you all to see. So come check out some of these unique pieces for yourself! Admission is free too! I’ve really been wanting to do a meet up since my last one at the Madonna Inn was so much fun, so if you’re a local or you happen to be in the city, I really hope you can make it. If not, let your NYC friends know!

I’ve always had a hard time keeping up with the new upcoming designers, but since moving here Lord & Taylor’s Birdcage has been great to have a place where I can discover all the new NYC artists and designers.

This look is just a sample of a few of the selections that I will be highlighting Thursday night. I was actually supposed to wear this Cynthia Steffe dress to the event but when I got it, I just had to wear it out the other day when it was decent weather, so it looks like I’m going to need to find something else to wear! But you’ll be able to find all of my selections, including other pieces from Vanessa LianneBing Bang and and a whole lot of other local designers showcased at Lord & Taylor’s flagship store on 5th avenue in NYC.

Really hope you can make it out! Make sure to RSVP here.

    I’ve been wanting a shirtdress for a while, and this post convinced me to go out and buy fabric for one!

    1. Thank you so much!! That is so nice of you!! Shirt dresses are the best!! Definitely get fabric and go for it!! xoxo

  4. Everyone has said what I was thinking reading this post. You are seriously such a babe! I’m in NJ, a pretty quick train trip away and if I could find someone to watch my little one tomorrow I would love to be there tomorrow! Anyways, you’re so sweet and, of course, gorgeous. Hoping that the event goes wonderfully!

      1. Thanks for responding! You are truly a wonderful and awesome person. I have Coral Bliss from MAC. It definitely doesn’t look as good on me as it does on you 🙂 but, I find it lighter than in your photos. Do you use a liner with it? Thanks!!

        1. It may look a tad different also because of the filter I put on the photos. But yeah you’re right it does look darker! And yes, as far as lip liner, I love Charlotte Tilbury lipliner the best!! xo

  16. Hello ! Can you post more tutorials for your hair? Or how you did this look? It looks like a simple braid then into a fishtail but it’s hard to tell. Also, I have a little one just one month younger than Atticus…he reminds me so much of my Maxwell! Baby boys are the best!

    With love,


  17. You should make a trip to Vancouver, Canada and do a meet up 😉 haha have fun! And you look beautiful as always.

    1. Good to know!! Hopefully I will make it out there someday 😉 And aww thank you Sarah!! xo

  18. You look so pretty and I love when you style your hair like that! I’ve watched your youtube tutorials over and over again and for some reason my braids don’t turn out as nice as yours. I’m guessing practice makes perfect right?!

    I wish I could attend your event tonight because you’re my favorite blogger. Hopefully you take a trip to Orange County, California sometime soon 🙂 Enjoy your evening.

    Stay Styled,
