I'm Speaking at PoshFest 2014!

It is with immense honor and pleasure that I share the news that I will be a guest speaker at PoshFest 2014!

PoshFest is the annual conference presented by Poshmark, the consignment app. If you regularly read my blog and/or follow me on social media, you know how much I love this fashion app. It's like nothing else out there. Not only is it a place where you can buy amazing pieces at super discounted prices and sell your own unwanted items, but it's also a fun on-line community where you can easily become friends (aka PFFs) with like-minded stylish individuals.

I attend the first ever PoshFest last year in Las Vegas. Read all about it here. This year, PoshFest will occur in the company's own backyard - San Francisco. I am incredibly humbled and beyond excited to be a part of this year's festivities.

You can see the full schedule and list of speakers here. Tickets for PoshFest 2014 in San Francisco are still available here. Hurry, they're selling fast.

Little Black Dress: From Work to Cocktails

Dress: Vince Camuto // Blazer: Calvin Klein // Bag: Jessica Simpson // Gold necklace & belt: vintage (designers unknown) // Shoes: Salvatore Ferragamo & Escada

Ah the Little Black Dress. Has there ever been a more versatile piece of clothing? In this Outfit of the Day post, I'll show you how I style one of my LBDs from work to cocktails. This one is a Vince Camuto fit and flare dress.

Working at City Hall requires I dress professionally from Monday to Friday (and on the occasional weekend/holiday). Blazers are a big wardrobe staple for me during the week. They're a great way to polish a look off and, since I'm always cold, it's also a great way to keep warm in cold offices.

This blazer is by Calvin Klein. It's in a very dark navy color with a single button. It's a perfect jacket for work and a great piece to dress up any casual look.

I'm carrying my extra large Jessica Simpson black bag. I've had this bag for years. It's such a great large bag  that can carry everything you'll ever need when you head off to work. It's in patent leather and features silver colored hard-ware and round studs.

I'm also wearing navy Salvatore Ferragamo sling-backs. These peep-toes are vintage and feature adorable bows. Because the heel isn't too high, it's perfect for the office.

To take this dress from day to night, I removed the blazer and added a few gold toned accents. Gold accessories are perfect for evening looks.

This vintage chain has chic faux pearls. It can hang quite low or you can double wrap it around your neck like I'm wearing it here. The belt has large sequin/scale-like gold plates and a gold-toned plaque buckle.

My evening pumps are by Escada. They're pointed toe Mary Janes with a comfortable heel hight. The shoe is made with satin material for an added touch of elegance. Not to mention the beautiful black stone with white crystals button.

I kept my eye makeup pretty neutral using Urban Decay shadows. I added a little pop of gold with their Half Baked eye shadow and Sephora's gold glitter eyeliner. I'm also wearing Strange Love by MAC from their Rocky Horror Limited Edition collection.

Braided Princess Hairstyle Tutorial

Disclaimer: the Johnsons Baby products featured in this post were sent to me. I was not paid to write this post. All opinions are my own. 

Does your little girl want to be a princess for Halloween? Here is a great princess-inspired hairstyle you can try on your little one for a day of trick-or-treating. 

The first thing you have to do is cleanse the hair by washing it with Johnson's No More Tangles Shampoo the night before or morning of. Apply some Johnson's No More Tangles Leave-In Conditioner to help with any stubborn tangles and to nourish the hair.

Spray some Johnson's No More Tangles Spray to help comb through and style the hair. 

Begin the hair style by parting the hair down the middle. Then part off two squared sections on both sides on the top of the head.

Create a braid on the left side and secure with elastic. Repeat the braid on the opposite side and secure with elastic.

Take the two braids and join them together in the back of the head with an elastic.

Take off the previous two elastics leaving a small ponytail. Braid the ponytail and secure with an elastic.

Now take the two small sections of the hair from underneath each ear and braid them all the way down. If your daughter has shorter hair, feel free to make take the sections from higher up on the head (above the ear).

Tie both bottom braids together along with the lower half of the top braid. Secure with elastic.

Next start a dutch braid with all the remaining hair.

Secure with an elastic at the bottom.

Accessorize the braid with flowers and/or bows.

Now enjoy watching your princess in her full regal costume. 

What will your kids be for Halloween this year?

Don't forget to try the Johnson's No More Tangles three-step hair care regimen.

Baby Chic: Fall Layers

Dress: Carter's // Sweater: Guess // Boots: Carter's // Leggings

Fall is here and I've started to dress Catalina in layers to keep her warm on these cooler New York City days. Here she is in our garden for our first Fall Kids Fashion Outfit of the Day of the season.

Catalina is wearing a twill dress from Carter's. It's in an olive green hue, a staple color in fall fashion. The dress features pockets on the sides and two pockets on the chest with snap button closures. It's a great piece for your kids to wear in autumn.

She's wearing a pale pink and white striped Guess sweater over the dress. It came with a white belt in the same fabric as the dress but I switched it for the brown suede-like belt that came with the dress. It is super soft and features two pockets.

Another items I use a lot during the fall are stockings. The same goes for my little girl. Here Catalina is wearing white stockings. They're a great way to cover your kid's legs during the change of weather. 

We've finished this fall girl's look with these cute brown boots from Carter's. They're sturdy, affordable and quite fashionable. They're faux leather and have two buckled straps at the top of the boots. 

Catalin loves this weather almost as much as I do. How will you dress your little ones this season?
