I know. The same checked blazer has been everywhere, on everyone. “Me too” clothes. I didn’t even want one until I saw these amazing sleeves. OK. So they’re not practical for work because they’re kinda huge and get in the way, but so much fun for going out! I went with a velvet tank underneath because I’m notoriously hot in restaurants and paired with boyfriend jeans and loafers for an upscale casual vibe.
The new jewellery is my anniversary gift from my hubby and I love it! Swarovski crystal for our crystal anniversary. It’s so beautiful and I can see wearing it with really dressy outfits too! Enjoy!

Shoes, shoes, shoes. A blessing and a curse. I can no longer wear heels. Fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis have rendered that impossible so I’ve found myself living in sneakers. Fortunately the athleisure trend is holding strong, but there are times when you have to look like human and need “real” shoes. I’ve termed them fancy flats. Of course being the princess that I am I always want something amazing that never usually goes on sale, but lucky for me (and not so lucky for hubby) the Saks a block from my hotel in NYC was having a 70% off sale. I kinda bought two pairs. Hey… I saved money right? 😉 Here’s the first. Enjoy!

Bucket list item… check! I have always wanted to go to New York Fashion week. It was a dream come true when Midori Linea’s PR team contacted me to attend their event. Sakura and I met a while back during a trunk show at Bloomingdale’s and we hit it off right away. She’s not only super talented, she’s super sweet. It all started with her designing a hand chain which you can see in my post here. Since then she has expanded into so many different areas. I’m obsessed with my latest necklace purchase. Stay tuned!
The W Hotel Downtown hosted the event and we were lucky enough to get an upgraded room with an amazing view of the Freedom Tower and the Oculus. The vibe there is very New York swanky chic. I don’t stay in the City so often since it’s only 45 minutes from my house but I wish I did. You can’t beat the energy of the hustle and bustle and everything it has to offer.
Then the panic sets in. Holy crap. What to wear to fashion week? I had gotten this outfit for another event and was supposed to be able to wear it on New Year’s Eve, but a sick hubby transformed my outfit into pyjamas. So not blogworthy. I think I nailed it! My hubby doesn’t usually enter the blog but he finally got to wear his very special Bloomingdale’s Exclusive Robert Graham shirt with crystals so I had to show you! Enjoy!
Oh! Lubi liked the room too!

When a mutual friend showed me this jewellery on Facebook I immediately pulled out my phone to follow. The Crafty Optician makes jewellery and accessories revolving around eyewear and the optical profession. Love that it encompasses two of my favourite things — jewellery and eyewear. Coleen was kind enough to send me three pieces to try out and for the post I chose the necklace and the stud earrings. Studs are key when you’re wearing winter attire. They don’t get stuck in your sweater and scarf! I wore these to work and everyone thought they were fabulous. They’re are adorable and well made and I’ve been wearing them non stop ever since I got them!
In this post I paired my new jewels with my favourite new boots and sweater. Go to winter look — jeans, boots, a big cozy sweater and a huge wrap scarf. It’s so warm and soft on those cold New Jersey days. Enjoy!
