I thought when I left Florida for NYC I left the Hurricanes behind....Sandy Found Me!

Living in NYC makes me really appreciate the weekends I can get out of the city and visit my family and friends in Florida. The sun is shining, it's 75 degrees, and I get to work on my tan, WINNING! Little did I know that the following weekend a little piece of Florida would follow me home, HURRICANES! We lost water and power at 8:45pm Tuesday night due to Hurricane Sandy. I was staying with friends on Park Avenue. It was crazy to see the whole city black. Pics to come!

Fall Denim Staple: WAX DENIM, so hot they're flammable!

Gone are the days when jeans were simply denim and blue. Now they come in an array of patterns and colors, and who's the newest jean kid to on the block? Wax Jeans. That's right, WAX! The coated denim looks like they might be leather at a quick glance, but their actually more comfortable and wallet friendly then leather. These wax jeans I'm wearing are by Rich & Skinny and were purchased at Nordstroms. I absolutely love them!.....just make sure you don't put them in the dryer (yes, they're wax people. Wax melts in heat), and you might be slightly flammable, so hot!

Pier 11

The piers in NYC traffic the cities imports and exports, fortunately for me it also serves as a way of transport over to Ikea in Brooklyn, whoop~ bring on the caviar in a tube! It's also a great place to sit with a cup of coffee in the morning when when the sun is coming up and all the boats are going by. It's a quite little spot with a beautiful water view (sometimes hard to find in the cement jungle that is NYC).

Bedroom Makeover: nuLOOM, West Elm & Ikea!

With all the excitement following Fall fashion week and getting my closet ready for the season, I thought my bedroom could use a new look as well. As winter approaches, it's starting to get darker earlier and earlier, so in my attempt to combat seasonal depression (I'm a Floridian, I love my sunshine!) I decided to redecorate in bright colors. Brighter the better! With a new area rug, blinds, chair cover and a few picture frames my bedroom got its own Fall makeover.

Does wearing leather make you feel like a badass?

I have to admit, there's something about slipping on a leather jacket that makes me feel like I'm a total badass. Of course I know this is just false confidence, because when I'm body checked in the subway by a Latina in a hurry and I let out a "Hey, watch it!" and she looks back and says "Yeah you got a problem?!" in a confrontational stance, I immediately reply "Nope!", smile, and dash away as fast as my Louboutins will allow. Now it's not like I was looking to roundhouse kick anyone in the head, but maybe I'd be safer jumping on the back of a hot Italians motorcycle to unleash my inner badass.

*FYI~ The Necklace in this post was purchased from Tracy Meehan of Stella & Dot. Check out her store, there's tons of amazing stuff. I'm wearing the Renegade Necklace (appropriate to don with leather). The packaging is so cute, they make great gifts as well!
