Macy's By Appointment

Did you know Macy's offers a personal shopping experience to shoppers for free?! I discovered this by way of my blogger friend, Aminta Iriarte of Clothes and Fashion. She organized a fun girl's night of shopping for a few friends and i had so much fun I just had to share the experience.

We connected with the Macy's personal shopper, Nafeesa, via email and each told her what we were looking for.

I asked her to pick some pieces that illiterate what's in for Spring. She did not disappoint. In my room, there was an array of Spring trends filling the room.

I told Nafeesa that I'm a big fan of Bar III and Maison Jules (brands exclusive to Macy's). She picked some great pieces from their collections plus a few others.

These two outfits were my favorite.

I high;y recommend you use this free service. You'll save so much time scowering the racks and you'll have a professional (who knows all the merchandise in stock) helping you select the perfect outfit for every occasion.

And if you go to the Macy's at Herold Square in New York City, don't forget to ask for Nafessa!

Stitch Appeal Black & Gold

Top: c/o Stitch Appeal // Skirt: c/o Stitch Appeal // Shoes: Jimmy Choo // Handbag: Tory Burch // Watch: Michael Kors // Bracelet: Chanel // Ring: c/o Lolita Lempicka

Stitch Appeal is an amazing company you NEED to know about! Not only do they have beautiful dresses and separates, but they offer a unique service that makes them exceptional. Every item on their website is made to your measurements. Simply select your pieces, submit your measurement and you'll have perfectly fitted pieces in just a few weeks.

We all know that no two women are the same. Why should our clothes be?! With Stitch Appeal, your items will be made to fit you body and you can additionally customize it to emphasize your favorite features and/or camouflage your trouble areas. Not to mention the quality is outstanding. They use high quality fabric and their skirts are fully lined with additional high quality fabric.

Here I'm wearing the their Matrina top. It's a beautiful light gold top with a shimmery finish. It's feminine and a perfect for a special occasion or liven up your work attire on a big workday.

This Stitch Appeal Sunshine skirt is by far my favorite pencil in my wardrobe. Not only is it fitted perfectly to my shape but the faux leather details are phenomenal. The waist band is faux leather as is the floral applique stitched along the sides of the skirt. It's a wonderful, eye-catching feature.

As you all know, I'm a big fan of black and gold outfits and this one is outstanding (if I do say so myself). I'd wear this to a night out with my husband or girlfriends, to an evening event or even a special work event. Who couldn't take charge of the boardroom in this look?

As an evening look, I added my black leather Tory Burch bag. It features a thick gold chain that perfectly pairs with my Stitch Appeal clothing.

My accessories include my vintage Chanel charm bracelet (purchased from Poshmark user CuratedLuxe), a gold Michael Kors watch and a ring by Lolita Lempicka.

I'm also wearing my black patent leather Jimmy Choo shoes. I think these are one of the sexiest pairs of shoes I own. The pointy toe and stiletto heel really elongates the legs. The cut-outs give the foot a coquettish peek-a-boo effect. And you guys already know how I feel about patent leather.

I kept my makeup look classic and neutral, using CIRCA Beauty products. CIRCA is the new makeup line by Eva Mendez and I'm absolutely in love with it. Here I'm wearing CIRCA's Alter Ego Eyeshadow palette, Super Saturated Lip Crayon in Electric and Magnetic, Lip & Cheek Stain in Playa Paraiso and their Extreme Black Mascara.
