Beautiful Bollare

Good Morning lovelies,

Last month on my NYC trip I was lucky enough to stop into the GORGEOUS Bollare offices! I felt so NYC getting buzzed up and making my way through their amaaaazing showroom!

IMG_6000 Rachel Pally is one of my favorite contemporary dress designers. Her line is full of flirty casual dresses that last so long. No cheap cotton used here. Pally’s threads are quality and movable on your body.

materials to create a chic, limited edition collection. The collection is made locally in New York and Los Angeles studios, and sold directly to our own stores at reasonable prices. I can’t wait to make my first purchase.

Have a great Friday!!!

Instagram Thursday-NYC Edition

This is a hard Instagram roundup for me. I am heartsick for NYC and reliving these snapshots are very dear to me.  They remind me of the fun I had, the life-changing experiences that happened, the memories with friends, reuniting with old friends, and overall magic I lived in for the week I was there.  I am already planning my next trip in the Spring where I intend to spend a few more days in Williamsburg!

By the end of the ride I was weaving in and out acting like a NYC’erfcd856a0336b11e3816722000a1f93c3_8St Paul’s Chapel is one of my favorite spots to visit while in NYC. It is magical and will move you to tears every time. There is this sense of peace and flooding love that I feel every time I visit it there. dc0905da335911e3adbc22000a9e17d5_8It was an added bonus that across the street from where we Annie & Joelle were staying just so happened to be the newest Banksy exhibit. We thankfully got there before the car door was stolen.

Thrifted Mixed Prints

Good Afternoon friends,

I am back from NYC!! To say I had an awesome trip would not do it  justice.  It was a once in a lifetime opportunity and I had so many amazing moments while being there. I’ve been to NYC before, but this trip was just magic. I literally cried upon leaving. I saw my first Broadway show, visited the new World Trade Center, biked across the Brooklyn & Manhattan bridges, stopped into the Bollare showroom, visited the Lesportsac office, consumed WAY too many street gyros, caught up with several college friends, and sipped some of the finest cocktails I have ever had in my life.  I look forward to sharing more with you throughout the week.

Today’s look is comprised of mostly ALL thrifted/vintage pieces. :)
