Style: Black & Gold

Sleek edge } Black and gold has to be one of the most sophisticated and classic wardrobe combinations regardless of what season it is. It's so fitting for every occasion! I'm completely in love with this Boy. by Band of Outsiders dress -- the perfect blend of masculine and feminine. I'd love to pair it up with our "Alex" mini cone earrings for a fierce, ladylike with an edge look. And how chic is this DVF dress? It's a modern take on her famous wrap dress with the gold waistband and so DVF! Just add our "Ribbon" cuffs to finish this sophisticated look!

Perfect Pairing: Studs & Shoes

PERFECT PAIR } My two obsessions: Bows & Shoes. I mean... a girl can never have enough of bows & shoes, right?!! Here's my list of my favorite shoes to pair up with our Tiny Bow Studs. These studs were made for everyday wear! I chose these studs in black because I personally wear my black pair almost every single day (unless I switch them out with my gold pair)... I guess that's just the New Yorker in me =D Words to describe our Tiny Bow Studs? Simple, classic, and subtle femininity. (They also make lovely gifts!) ;)

Currently Coveting: Celine

Currently Coveting } Since we are displaced from our homes in the aftermath of the storm... we haven't been able to get back to normal or work at all. It's very eerie to see half of Manhattan shut down and blacked out. Maybe it's a sign for us workaholics to pause and rest our brains and remember to breathe. But I have to say... I can't wait to get back to normal and start working again. As a small business owner, you tend to live and breathe your business because at the end of the day, you have no one else to rely on but yourself. You're basically a mommy or daddy and your business is your baby. You have to nurture it, care for it, and if you don't... it suffers. It's so sad to see all our neighborhood small businesses shut down and not being able to open. We know the feeling... But New Yorkers are resilient and we'll be back on our feet in no time!!

For now... I guess I'll just drown myself in my sketchbook, fill in my Muji calendar and notebooks with notes and deadlines and dream of these beautiful (and simply perfect) Celine shoes to get my mind off this horrible storm!!!

Random quote } I think this was via Pinterest. Thanks @meethaha for forwarding this to me. She always knows what I'll love and I love this...

P.S. Please keep safe fellow East-coasters! Hoping and praying that Hurricane Sandy isn't as bad as it's being projected and that it will be over soon! <3

Style: Black Swan

High fashion chic } I wanted to do a black version of our last style post "bridal chic" (see below). Our "bridal chic" post was so popular, that I had to do a non-bridal version! =) There's a perfect little black dress for everyone -- every body type, every style, and every age. This one is one of my favorites of the moment! This dress by Milly is the perfect black version of J. Crew's dress from our post below. I love the simple, yet elegant bodice with a combination of the high fashion feather skirt. The waistband cinches your waist in and all you need are classic black pumps!

Usually, I would go for a collar necklace with this neckline, but with stunner statement drops like our Triple Doily Drops in black, you don't need anything on your neck. I found the perfectly sleek gold clutch to go with this outfit by Serpui Marie. The gold plating from our Triple Doily Drops are a nice accent to the gold clutch. With this outfit, you'll be classic and high fashion chic!! ;)

Style: Bridal Chic

The bride wore white & silver } Sometimes, keeping it simple is so much more beautiful & chic!! Case in point... I completely fell in love with this gorgeous, fun, and whimsical J. Crew "Victoria" feather-skirt linen dress. And at $895 for a wedding dress?!! What a steal!!

Our Triple Doily Drops in silver glitter and Jimmy Choo's "India" mirrored leather heels in silver are the perfect pairing for this dress. Our Triple Doily Drops pack a stunning statement while framing your face with the classic dress neckline perfectly. The shoes are simple, yet elegant but completes the look beautifully! Ahh... if only I had an excuse to wear this outfit... I would feel like a princess for a day ;)

Not a bride? You can apply these simple rules to another color scheme for the same look and feel! 1. Choose a dress with a similar & simple neckline; 2. Statement earrings that stand out all on it's own, no necklace required (it would be over kill); 3. Simple & strappy heels to complete the look and... voila! =D

Color Story: Emerald

Color Story } One of our collection colors this fall is Emerald. A bright, and beautiful shade of green, Emerald is always a Fall/Winter favorite to brighten up our fall and winter ensembles, specially for the holidays! It's just a no brainer. I'm currently coveting this gorgeous Joie "Arnie" sweater in this amazing shade of green... or what we like to call Emerald =D

Some of my favorite Emerald pieces I'll be wearing on repeat this season are the Doily Drops and the Mini Ribbon Bar Necklace(these styles have also proven to be a FAN FAV, yay!). These pieces in Emerald makes me so happy!! ;)

Have a happy & beautiful Monday loves XO

Packaging with love

Packaging } I love packaging... especially when it's done with love and you can tell when it is! I've been having fun with my polka dot Japanese Masking Tape lately -- incorporating them into my packaging and even hanging up my calendar and reminders on my wall (which makes it decorative and fun!). NEED to collect more colors and fun patterns =) Oh! It's going to be so fun for the holidays!! Yay!!
