Rosé All Day: Polo Classic Style

It's National Rosé Day!!  And who doesn't love a little bubbly? 

Rosé is obviously the new summer favorite for NYC living, so I've grown to love the sweet tasting libation on a hot day or two. 

Last week, I officially started my summer festivities at the 11th Annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic with one of my dearest friends. (Gotta love great friend's that surprise you with sold out tickets to most photographed event to start the summer). And while some came to take photos to prove that they were there and few actually came to watch a polo match, I came to do a little bit of both and of course drink great champagne.

While I loved sipping on champagne and looking at everyone's polo-esque wardrobe of church hats, midi-length sun dresses and seersucker suits, I chose a more casual yet chic approach to Saturday polo.

I paired my favorite ASOS Mom Fit Jeans with this intricately folded JOVANI crop top. Now, I know what you're thinking... "JOVANI makes separates?"--Actually yes, but I took one of my favorite two-piece gowns, that's actually almost sold out at Neiman Marcus, and definitely came through with the fashion without being too over the top! Who knew it would be a smart idea to make evening wear multi-purposeful? Pairing these 2 together with my new favorite Mallory mules from Steve Madden and these fan earrings from Zara made for the summer chic style I've been craving all year. 

This look will be perfect for any Saturday brunch for sure!

Back to the Rosé...

My favorite Rosé at the moment is First Press Ruby Red--a sweet sparkling Rosé with a hint of grapefruit that I can actually stand--it's one of those fruits I've never been a fan of until I found this tasty drink.

A New Look: JOVANI & MASLAVI for the Modern Woman

Most of the time when someone asks me about JOVANI the first thing they say is, "oh yeah, the prom brand." What most people don't realize is that the evening wear brand goes beyond just the prom market and is actually a staple in markets ranging from bridal, party-cocktail, evening-gala, and my favorite contemporary collection, MASLAVI.

MASLAVI has become my go-to for gorgeous fits without going over the top. Just look at how sexy the jumpsuit above is! Can you say A-MA-ZING! The mix of simple silhouettes, unique fabrics and overall beyond trend styles makes this collection a hidden gem. Check out my new youtube video showcasing 3 of my favorite pieces. 

The one thing that I love about this collection is the styles are versatile enough to fit any event. From going out to dinner to a night out on the town, even a pageant interview, this collection just works. The striped midi dress and jumpsuits are exactly what I go for when I want to "dress up." The racerback and plunging neckline styles are great for my frame. I love the midi dress striped dress because the neckline and overall covered look isn't showing too much but emphasizing my hourglass shape. The jumpsuits, all though they are showing a lot more cleavage, it is overall a classic shape that shows my shape without being overly out there.

Which MASLAVI picks do you like?

Strike a Pose

Working in fashion has given me a lot of opportunities to work behind the camera. From celebrity shoots for magazines to catalogue shoots for our newest collections, I've spent days directing models and photographers to get the best shots. It's something that I really love to do and can call one of my passions, but I've never been in front of the camera.... until now

At this week's Maslavi shoot, I had an impromptu session in front of the camera with photographer Yasmine Asha, and let's just say I think I killed it! Not tooting my own horn but, all those years of posing models sure didn't hurt me. 

What I'm wearing: Eleven Paris "Life Is A Joke" Kate Moss Tee exclusive for Intermix, Steve Madden "Marlenee" Sandal, Zara Leather Jacket (from 2 years ago) and Necessary Clothing Boyfriend Jeans

EM Cosmetics... A Reflection of Me

I was lucky enough to attend YouTube Beauty Guru, Michelle Phan’s make up launch event last month (Thanks to her fab stylist Kristen who I provided dresses to.) The Purple and Fuchsia colored party was just as fun as the colors that popped across the room. From the candy bar and cocktails, to the photo booths and major celebrity/YouTuber appearances (June Ambrose, Jay Alexander, Tiarra Monet, and SunKissedAlba to name a few), the EM Cosmetic launch was a night to remember.

If I could change out my looks based on my needs that would make my life a whole lot easier and probably my purse a whole lot lighter.

Michelle Phan’s newest line produced by Lancôme, featured a wide variety of colorful palettes that were perfect for making versatile looks for day and night. Her big item of the night was her “life palette.” With removable/magnetic compartments to change out your make up based on your looks, I think this will definitely be a major winning product for EM. I always tell people I wish I had all my make up in one place, instead of trudging around 2 make up bags with different looks. If I could change out my looks based on my needs that would make my life a whole lot easier and probably my purse a whole lot lighter.

The goody bag was definitely a jackpot winning. From the amazing eyeliner to the hot pink lipstick that was as smooth as butter, I was completely satisfied with these products. I definitely think this will be a brand to keep in mind (hey, Michelle’s article was featured on the cover of September Vogue, so it has to be the BOMB.)
