The Great Gatsby Party NYC

Saturday, December 5th, rouge your knees and pull your stockings down, powder your nose, layer on the pearls, pin your hair up to let your hair down, Gatsby's coming to town. The Great Gatsby Party in New York City is almost here and sure to kick off the holiday season with a glamorous bang. Only two and a half weeks until you can dress in your 1920s best to Charleston while you sip St. Germain, or relax taking in the festivities with champagne from Pommery. Its sure to be a night to remember. 

I was excited to be invited by The Great Gatsby Party to be a part of their Gatsby editorial. I hope you enjoy and hope to see you there! xo

Juliette Williamsburg

Ever since I moved to Brooklyn 5 years ago, my favorite place for brunch has always been Juliette Williamsburg. For me, a perfect brunch is a great latte, the perfect Eggs Benedict and an atmosphere so inviting that it makes you want to leave the apartment, even on the snowy days of winter. Although the classics with eggs are usually my favorite, the Tomato soup is a strong contender. Unlike most fashionable places in the city, the staff is nice and just as inviting as the vintage bistro decor. If you are visiting New York and definitely if you live here, Williamsburg is well worth the trip, and dining at Juliette a must. The roof top is open in the summer for brunch cocktails and the dinner rivals their brunch. Its perfect for date night.

Thank you Juliette! Xo

Halloween Part Two: Jerry Hall

My second Halloween costume this year is inspired by Super model Jerry Hall for Christian Dior. This was originally shot by photographer Chris Von Wangenheim. The image is a part of the new book, Gloss. It's release was celebrated during NYFW by Marc Jacobs. For my makeup, I used my favorite high pigment pressed eyeshadows from Marc Jacobs Cosmetics.

Halloween Part One: Amelia

I love Halloween and every year I do at least two Halloween costumes. This year I have been so impressed by all of the amazing women who have been fighting for more equality in women's rights. Inspired by this movement, I decided to make my costume after a woman from the past who was fearless and brave in a predominantly male profession, the beautiful Amelia Earhart. All of these strong women before us, make it possible to improve the lives of the future.
