Man-Getter the return of Pointy Toe Pumps

Perfect for work but incredibly right for date night or lounging, the pointy toe pump have returned with a vengeance and Steve Madden is serving them up just right. You can’t just get one because they each have a different sex appeal – the ultimate man-getter. I recently stopped by Steve Madden and I went a little over board but I have no regrets. Electric blue will sure turn heads, so I put together an outfit to give you some excitement – under the body chain (Top Shop-SoHo) wear your favorite turtle neck with a simple necklace for work with the foam maxi skirt (Top Shop-SoHo) – and for your night out swap out necklace with featured body chain and paint the town blue!

Styling on a Budget – Thrifting in NYC

After all New York is Fashion Capital so it’s evident that to live here with relevance a love for fashion is a must.
My love for fashion has become a rather expensive hobby. Once there’s a connection with a piece and my imagination starts to create multiple looks there’s often no putting it back (impulse buying). Living here in the big City is becoming expensive and Im a mommy of two so thrifting helps to keep my hobby alive.

My fav thrifty spots are Beacon’s closet – on 5th Ave in Park Slope & Housing Works on East 24th st in Manhattan – I am super excited about this weeks awesome finds (Ted Baker & Rachel Zoe originals) since Bell-Bottoms are becoming my new THANG.

PS my FAB-FINDs did not cost more than thirty dollars –

Balenciaga 80's Frames

Vintage Finds in Brooklyn

What does fashion mean to you? For me its an expression of who I am, therefore my style is based on what I find interesting that enhances my personal style!  I love to incorperate new trends and old trends. Thrift and Vintage stores are always a great place to find intricate and fun pieces of clothing and accessories.

My most recent find, are a pair of Vintage Balenciaga frames from Foyer Vintage Store in Brooklyn, that my four year old insisted that I try  on, which I did and there was an instant connection. I love the oval shape, the color contrast of the Frames, I’d found my Statement piece- it’s different, it’s feminine, and it’s sexy.
