I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas. Like I said in my last post, my friends and I went matzo ballin'...haha. Definitely had a good time out except for coming home and noticing the drink some dude spilled on my was cranberry juice and left a pink streak down my back. Totally cool. Whatever it came out.
Anyway ordered these shoes from nine west. I saw them a few months ago but wasn't sure if I really liked them but they were ridiculously on sale on the website including free shipped so I couldn't resist. Can't wait till they get here.
Hope everyone got some great goodies!

Merry Christmas Eve! So who wants to get me these shoes? I just love the cork and the leather so much! Totally does not matter that I don't celebrate Christmas. =) I hope that all of you have a very happy holiday and get everything you wished for. I am now officially on break from work for the holidays and unfortunately not going anywhere warm. Work resumes after the new year (and yes I'm still with my internship because I can't bare to leave my favorite girls and we're working on something more permanent for me..ahh). However I am going to have to take some extra time off after the new year for something MAJOR which I will most likely discuss on here after the fact. But I am super excited and it's less than 2 weeks away.
Anyway again, Merry Christmas! Can't wait to read about all the goodies everyone got. I'm probably hanging out with my buddies tonight because for us jews it's mazto ball eve. It's so lame but really funny. Pretty much all us jews go out partying in search of our future spouses. haha just kidding! (kinda) And obviously tmrw I'll prob be at the movies. Wow I'm such a stereotype/cliche. Whatever I'm totally allowed to make fun of myself.
Relaxing for the rest of day and trying to figure out when to use my holiday gift the girls at the office bought me (a gift certificate to Bliss Spa..mmm massage).

NYC had the first snow of this winter season last night and damn it was a lot. Tried to take a picture of how deep it was but you can't really tell. But I assure you it's definitely over a foot. I don't live in Manhattan so the plows don't come right away to clean up the streets so now I'm thankful for my jeep.
Even though the streets weren't really plowed, I did get to see Avatar today hence the pic above of my sister in her rayban-like 3d glasses. I had been reading reviews that aside from the beautiful visuals the story sucks but Oh My Gosh!!! I am totally in love with this movie. I normally agree with critics (accept when it comes to a little thing called Twilight) but I really did love the story of the film. The entire time all I kept thinking about was Pocohantas and John Smith. The effects were absolutely breath taking to watch (not nauseating as I thought it might be with 3d) and I wish I lived on a planet like theirs. But really aside from the effects and the love story the whole back story and major plot of the film, I felt was brilliantly worked on and thought out. So if you haven't seen it, go! Oh and if you see the movie you'll know what the title means.

Officially done with school for good! Handed in my last final today. I guess now the real world begins. Scary yet exciting at the same time. Whatever I soooo will not get mushy and emo. Just wanted to share with you guys my new necklace that my favorite girls in the world aka the two fabulous girls I work for gave me for my birthday/graduation. I am in love! It's one of our clients's signature pieces with rhinestone chains and denim woven in. All of her pieces are so rocker and badass. She's definitely my new favorite jewelry designer. The girls knew how much I love her pieces since I'm usually oggling them and at our press preview during fashion week I was decked in her stuff. So now I have my very own. And if you guys are interested in it or any of her pieces (she's brand new and definitely on the rise) check it out at Charm and Chain. Most of her stuff is sold their and not to mention several of our other clients which also includes the owner of the site. Yea I'm totally pimping out the biz right now...

Have I said how happy I am that my best friends graduated & are living home again? No? Well I am because they were home for the first time in four years for my birthday and it was definitely one of the best birthdays I've had in years. On my actual birthday I spent it with my family doing the usual: movies, birthday dinner, cake etc. The next day I spent at my sisters apt where she took my a sushi restaurant with unlimited saki and wine and what do you know all my closest friends surprised me there. Everyone who knows me knows I hate making a big deal of my birthday and never would have planned anything so they took it upon themselves. Yea that's me surprised up top with cupcakes and a big birthday cookie. We went to a few bars after and seriously nothing is better than spending the time with your best friends.
Back at my sisters apt goofing obviously. You can't really tell what I wore but it was an H&M striped mini skirt, black Zara tank and my Dana Buchman oversized black blazer.
We really love each other.
I'm in love with this picture and my best friends. Love you and everyone else that made my birthday extra special.

I posted this pic a while back raving about stewy's skeleton gloves. Well my mom knows I'm a freak and like weird things so she surprised me with my very own pair! And I am obsessed! (She hates that word.)
Oh yea it's my birthday today too..bla bla. And the first night of Chanukah and I am officially done as a college student. So big weekend. Lots to celebrate!

Extreme lack of updates lately. Sorry! I'm officially a college graduate as of next week so as you can guess I'm kind of swamped with work. Plus my big sister's birthday just passed so we had to do the whole dinner thing and she's having a party this weekend (brat..j/k). And when her birthday passes that means mine is next week...ick! Yea I'm not one for the whole birthday thing. I had my 21st last year so I'm kinda over it. Yup I am debbie downer in the flesh. hahah. But I have been having fun with all the online sales. Just received my Elizabeth & James Torn Deconstructed Tee (above pic) from Chickdowntown. And I got it for 40% off because of a Black Friday sale. Not bad. (Oh and they are still having a 40% off sale of the entire site.) They only had a large left and it's big. Alright it's huge but I love it and I probably could have made it myself but I really don't care. Oh and I have still yet to finish the DIY but I swear I will hopefully this weekend after my sister's bday party. Which means I need an outfit! I really want to wear my sister's sequin leggings, so now just need some ideas of what top to throw on with it. Was thinking a white oversized button down or maybe my vinatge harley davidson tee. Either way I want to do it with some edge and I would love your suggestions! So help and then I will definitely get in an outfit post next!

Happy thanksgiving everyone! Ate a lot and pretty much died after. First time in a long time it was held at my house with just the six of us and I really enjoyed it. Not having to get dressed and everyone eat in pj's is a perfect evening for me. As well as drinking bottled sangria with our own fresh cut fruit plus the fact that we catered in this huge dinner..doesn't get better. And now all I want to do is lay in bed all day long (which I've been doing anyway) and cuddle. Yet I'm also anxiously listening for the doorbell for a package I ordered from F21. Oh I wouldn't be caught dead attempting to shop on Black Friday. Sorry no sale is worth the beating I'd have to hash out to all the crazy hyperactive shoppers. Bed and browsing online is way more fulfilling. Yet dangerous since there are plenty of BF sales online too. So far I've been going through my favorites and there are defnitely good deals that you should check out.
Chickdowntown, BoutiqueToYou, and Singer22.

First off a little cake. So pretty.
Groom and bride giving toasts. They were thanking everyone because instead of doing gifts, the guests all donated to my uncle's cancer research organization that he developed at his hospital. They actually met because a woman wrote a book about my uncle's work with cancer research and and the author of the book introduced them.
Yeah my sister thinking she's cool doing the sprinkler.

What did you think I'd forget? And my favorite of them all with the conclusion of the New Moon press tour. Stewy in Oscar De La Renta at the LA premiere. Simply gorgeous especially with her sig messy hair. Had a really long and tiring week so keeping this short. Seeing an afternoon nm showing tomorrow and then probably just relaxing at home for the rest of the day. Saturday I have my uncles wedding and I took home some pretty hot jewelry from the office to wear with my dress. Probably going to end up wearing a rosette bracelet that Blair from gg just wore as a choker on last weeks epi. Yup we sent it to her. We actually had three clients on the characters in one episode. Pretty epic!!
Hopefully some wedding pics by sunday...depends on how much champagne is consumed ;)

Yay 100th post! I have to give myself a big mazol tov considering I lose interest fairly quickly with whatever I'm doing but I have grown to love blogging even though this started out as class assignment. See I am all smiles (ie: me with a big cheesy grin in the middle).
Anyway, spent most of the weekend with my sister at her place and celebrated my friend krantz 22nd birthday. Ugh I can't believe we are all reaching 22. I'm glad I'm the baby and the last one to celebrate my birthday of my friends (I'm a december baby).
I'll admit right now these pics from this night are not the most attracted considering alch may have been involved and decided to contort my face into wierd expressions and it was a monsoon outside. But I managed to stick to my all black uniform with my big faux fur and division E tee.
The best part was definitely being able to spend time with my two girls that I don't get to see that often. We met when we both were freshmen in albany and were the first three to leave after first semester because ickk that school was gross. A fun night overall. Happy birthday krantzieee!

Trio in Paris. Definitely favorite here. This J Mendel dress is absolutely angelic and really looks great with her pale skin. I even really like the harsh contrast between the cream and her jet black 'do.
Here's the trio at a London event with stewy wearing a Proenza Schouler Hemp Linen Dress. She's been getting a lot of flack for it and to be honest I don't like it either. I saw what this dress looked like on the runway and that's exactly where it was meant to be and stay. Granted her legs look phenom and really...who's looking at her anyway with RP there? ;)
Next stop: Madrid Fan Event. Stewy's rocking a gorg Balenciaga and not to mention those hot booties. I think the dress paired with the black hair is badass. Win.
Madrid Press Conference: Hello blood red pumps! I think this might win my fave look so far. The Elizabeth and James leather bustier dress is out of this world and wish I could get my hands on it.
And lastly, stewy at a photocall. Love this dress. Have not yet identified it...so if you know it please let me know. Such a sophisticated look. Definitely a stretch from what she's normally photgraphed in.

Just bought these babies from Forever today. I'm not much of an earrings girl, well actually I usually never take out my studs but I've always loved the look of cool earrings. These look better in person because the color is more vintagey. The reason I got them is because I have my uncle's wedding coming up and am wearing a plain black dress and figured I'd switch up my look with some flashy earrings. You can't really go all out flashy with the outfit since the ceremony is taking place in a temple. I don't usually wear fake earrings because my ears get irritated that's why I stick to my gold setting diamond studs. Plus studs never go out of style. But I've been really loving the look lately with messy hair and big chain earrings. They're feminine yet still have that rockstar/biker chick edge which is absolutely me. The wedding's in two weeks (yea I have a countdown because we all should know by now that new moon will be released a day before the wedding..haha) and I will definitely post pictures. I'm hoping to meet some gorgeous single doctor at the wedding since all of my uncle's colleagues are doctors. Score! (hah just kidding..but wait kinda not kidding.)

Diggin' this pic. It's an ad for LnA on the one and only Singer. LnA definitely makes cool tee shirts and tries to stretch the basic tee idea. I'm such a tee girl. I live in leggings and tee shirts and when it's chilly just throw on a sweater. Good to go. Definitely a no fuss kinda girl. And seriously paired with those lace leggings, the outfit is so cool without really trying. Which is kind of my go to thing right now. I've been so busy with school slash the internship as well, I haven't really been focused on putting together outfits. I swear my life revolves around leggings and picking out a new sweater and just adding some boots and jewelry. Eh I'm really not complaining.
And I definitely cannot be complaing because woohoo Yankees won the World Series!!! Finally!! 27 baby. Huge Yankee fan here (obviously! I did dress up as one for halloween) so my house was basically filled with cheers once the 9th inning was dunzo. Officially finished my last test today so hopefully more blogging soon.

Thought I'd share some halloween pics. (These were stolen from bff eseegs bc I'm too lazy to charge my camera and see what lurks there.) So out of all the years I've been spending halloween in the city it has always been warm and nice and finally when all my bffs graduate school and are home halloween it poured like a mother effer. Whatever we stilled managed to have an amazing time. Started the night off hanging at bff Marley's house. Drank a little and of course took part in some prom-esq pics showing off our costumes.
Clearly we were enjoying ourselves.
Sorry guys but I'm gonna have to go with the foodie diaries with best costume of the hamburglar. And I'm proud to say I made her mask and cape! But we def all looked cute with seegs as the biker chick, me a yankee (go yanks let's win it tn), akon as some version of a masquerader (ie wearing your mask on your head & wearing pretty yet whory fishnet thigh highs..love ya), hamburglar and marls as an indian.
We took it to the streets of the village where I cannot even begin to tell you how many people were chanting yankees everytime I walked by. Gotta love ny. Definitely fun spotting a Ronald McDonald. He found his perfect match in the hamburglar. Saw one balloon boy, a pink taco and a guy dressed as a very LARGE vagina. Yea that picture is somewhere. So with the ick weather and all...had a great night with the bffs although I did fall over a police barrier and have the bruises as souveniers yet luckily not one of my friends remembers it..hmmm wonder why? ;)

Hmmm dress like Rpatz? Was just browsing through one of my favorite websites Singer22 and came across this section with all What Goes Around Comes Around vintage pieces. I actually went to one of WGACA's events last year with my first internship. It was a private viewing of their collection that I had gotten invited to to go see and I instantly fell in love and not just with the mojitos they served. Almost all of their pieces are vintage and they rework them to give them some new life. Anyway While browsing their new featured section on singer I came across this lovely vest. And um hello...ddddddamn! Not only is this one of my fave rpatz photo shoots but the reworked vest is totally cool.
Even cooler when he's not wearing a tee shirt underneath. Yup totally embracing my obsession..not at all ashamed. ;)
So excited halloween is tomorrow. My bets girls and I will most likely be roaming around the village catching glimpses on the parade and bar hopping. Just finished making a cape for my brudder. She's going to be the Hamburglar. It's so funny. Can't wait for pictures and will definitely post.

After the flea market we were on the hunt for a quiet cafe. She in need of some coffee and me the two year old in need of hot chocolate preferably with marshmellows. Walking down some street we stopped at The V Spot, a vegan restaurant, where one of the waiters rushed out with a tray of food saying 'I guess you're waiting for the samples' haha umm yea..blushing. But damn those vegan empanadas were so yummy. Anyway we never ended up with our coffee and hot coco we were extremely picky for some reason. But overall it was a really fun day with my brudder and you should check out her blog to get her account of the day. I swear she's funny and you'll just drool over pics of her foodies.
