I’ve been rockin’ burgundy like it’s no one’s business this season and I won’t be stopping anytime soon. May I introduce you to my go-to bag of the
Fall year, the classic leather tote by Cuyana. It’s super soft, supple and sturdy – great for a day of errands or a weekend getaway. Cuyana launched their Fall collection today – it’s filled with modern, feminine and effortless pieces sure to appease working gals, street chic chicks and busy moms on the go.
I stopped by Neiman Marcus in Union Square to pick up a couple of lipsticks and left with a few Fall favorites. Trust me when I say you won’t want to miss out on The Beauty Event. Now through 9/21, you get this chic tote filled with premium goodies when you spend $125 on cosmetics or fragrances (or both!).
YSL 52 has been sold out everywhere, so naturally I snatched it up when I found out that it was finally in stock. I love the texture, packaging and smell of these lipsticks. I’m really digging these Glossy Stains too. On the eyes, I’m wearing YSL’s Baby Doll Liquid Eyeliner. Using the applicator took a bit of practice, but the formula is heavily pigmented and so smooth – a new favorite!
I also wanted to share an exciting contest that ELLE and Neiman Marcus are holding, called Faces of Beauty. Nominate someone you know (or yourself!) who is beautiful inside and out for a chance to win a trip to Dallas to participate in a photo shoot, score some swag from NM and be the star of Neiman Marcus’ 2015 beauty campaign. Six women will be chosen and entering is easy! Check out their Facebook page for more details. The contest ends 9/21, so you better hustle!

I generally steer away from abstract prints, but there’s something about the bold brushstrokes paired with the geometric bodice that’s making me reconsider. This directly reflects my personality in the way I freak out when loose ends are left untied. I’m a bit of a Type A, but with my new found appreciation for
messy unique prints, I think I’ve discovered a more easy going, relaxed me… Right? Wouldn’t you agree???
Since when did the sun start setting so early? I swear there was more light in the evenings before I left for New York. Although the lack of sun can get depressing, I love staying warm in chunky layers and jewel tones. I’ve been adding burgundy to my wardrobe and I plan on getting a ton of use out of these Sam Edelman flats. It can easily spice up an all neutral outfit, like grey or camel. Wearing it with hunter green or navy is modern, yet classic and Fall ready.
