Valentine's Day is suppose to be all warm and fuzzy, right? Well, in NYC this past one was cold and icy! Nonetheless, it is all about what's on the outside, and the record low chilly temperatures didn't stop the heat from turning up for many ;) I spent my day doing something that I LOVE...getting lost in next season's collections and falling madly in love with a few hot thangs.
This red and plum combo had me feeling all kinds of "lovie-dovie" - too bad I didn't exactly have a special someone to be all mushy with - but I did get some gorgeous roses from an admirer, and they were a warm surprise after a frigid day. I'm a big romantic, and though it may sound cliche, I love the idea of so much love floating in the air :)
A long maxi skirt with an oversized sweater is one of the chicest combos a woman can wear. It's feminine and effortless, and can work casually with flats or sneakers, or dressed up with heels. Pleats have been a big trend for fall/winter, and so has this maroon/burgundy color, so it's double touch point with this beauty from Anthropologie.
A red/burgundy oversized Missoni sweater broke the monotone color when layered with this faux leather moto jacket from Hou5e Boutique. If you don't own a moto jacket as yet, it's a must for every closet - trust it opens a world of style possibilities. You can wear anything, add a moto jacket and it's instantly cool.
I love when shoes are a work of art and these Monika Chiang mohawk pumps are no disappointment. The color, gold accents and unique feature make it quite a standout. Other final details to my NYFW "Shades of Love" look included a Mansur Gavriel coin purse that doubles as a clutch - now that's something that makes my heart smile :)
