What’s better than and ‘it’ girl or a jumpsuit? An ‘it’ girl in a jumpsuit! Lupita Nyong’o has been burning up the red carpet since she hit the scene and each look gets better and better. My ultimate favorite alternative for a dress for an elegant occasion is a jumpsuit. This sleek black, strapless Veronica Beard jumpsuit Lupita is sporting here is super flirty yet sophisticated. Of course, this girl knows how to accessorize and she added some fun touches with printed pumps and a pop of color clutch. I found a similar sweetheart neckline, strapless jumpsuit for only $80 and have provided a way to style it like Lupita.
New Year’s Eve is just a week away. Are you party ready? If not, don’t freak out. I’ve got two great outfit ideas for you. This is the biggest party of the year so go out with a bang and wear something extravagant. Go for the gold in a sexy, strapless, gold dress and make it even more luxe with a fur bolero. If your not the flashy type, try a sophisticated jumpsuit with large, sparkly earrings. Either look will help you bring in the new year in style. So, head on out to the stores and take advantage of all the after Christmas sales and find yourself a fabulous ensemble. Feel free to share your looks!
Besides shopping and drinking wine, my other favorite past time is traveling. This past December I went to Rio de Janeiro with a friend of mine and we had the time of our lives. We explored, ate, danced, and of course, shopped our hearts out. I have one rule about international shopping: Try not to shop at the same stores we have in the States. But when I saw the largest Zara store I’ve ever seen….I had to make an exception. It was such a beautiful space full of clothing that were not yet back at home because it was their S/S collection when it was still winter back home. I walked away with this gorgeous tropical print jumpsuit! Every time I wear it I have memories of the fun girls’ trip to Brazil!
I was attending a fun event called “Everything Girls Want” at Happy Feet Boutique. It was a great collaboration of women business owners displaying their talents.
This is my first attempt at a top knot. What do you think?
This is my ‘before’ pic before I got glamorized by make up artists Ony.

Save the best for last. That’s how I felt about our last day in NYC….
Posing in Times Square on our way to brunch.
Mother and I enjoying a delicious brunch at the Blue Fin inside the W Hotel Times Square. Doesn’t she look adorable in her pink suit!
Always the most interesting characters in Times Square.
Getting ready for the show!
The show was absolutely amazing! It was almost more like a concert with everyone singing along to all of Motown’s greatest hits. Oh! The boy who played the young Michael Jackson of the Jackson 5 blew everyone away! He sounded just as good, if not better, than M.J.! Please check out this show if you have the opportunity!
Goodbye NYC! At least until our next adventure
