I heart Vogue – and especially the September issue!!

Romance NYC Style

Romance is not dead – nor should it be.
Just take a look around Central Park. The couple on a picnic, the first date happening at the Boat House, the husband rowing his wife under the Bow Bridge.

Diane von Furstenberg coral creation adds its own romantic touch to this city escape.
The cut, colour, flowing fabric, the detail of the subtle pleating.

Little BLUE Jacket

I have been patiently (well mostly) waiting for the weather to be warm enough for me to rip the price tag off with glee and skip outside!!
Bewitched by this colour.
Infatuated with my new little blue jacket.

Casual lunch, shopping, work…it is just so versatile and fun.

Date Night!

I was determined that the flu would not get me down.
Loaded with DayQuil and a tonne of foundation I was off to date night.

Whenever in doubt (or feeling awful)… black is always best!
Therefore, out came the LBD.
Mixed with some subtle splashes of gold (and a jewel on the shoe) for colour.

Last but not least, a fun manicure.
Everything is better after a touch of pampering.
I am generally very boring with my colour choice (OPI Big Apple Red every time).
This time I stepped out of the comfort zone and went with a deep purple (OPI Vant to bite my neck) and a glitter feature nail.
Loving the feature nail as it let’s you have some fun, without having to commit to a full hand of glitter.

Love the see through arms - adding that something special to a simple LBD.

Glamour Kitty

Go and find your inner pussycat ladies – the feline frenzy is officially on!
To celebrate this and the fact that it is NYFW, Glamour Magazine got everyone out (even in the snow) to the Glamour Cat Fashion Concept Store.

I don’t need much of an excuse to be persuaded to head down to the Meatpacking district – and getting purr-alicious was a done deal!
See the cat craze below.

Cuckoo for Coco (Chanel that is)

SO – i feel like the world may have just spun off it’s axis….. not even joking.
I just encountered my first negative Chanel experience.

It’s ok ladies. Take a deep breath and have a calming Chamomile tea.
I can get through this.

Obsessed. The key word to describe my feelings for Chanel.
L-O-V-E the “double C” – i mean who doesn’t? No really – who? (furrowing brow in anger)

Then there is Karl, we’re on as first name basis… and don’t even get me started on the bags. I want each and every one.

My new Chanel Inimitable Intense mascara, delightful – the lip-gloss sample i received from the lovely lady at the counter, just gorgeous.
Everything they do is amazing. Elegant. Classic.

So you can see my conundrum when today the experience was devastating.
The mission was to find a BOLD lip color for this evening’s festivities – outfit was planned, this was the final piece of the evening puzzle.
After a robust conversation regarding bold pink versus bold oxblood tones, my friendly sales associate and I landed a striking  Levres Scintillantes in Myriad.
Great, happy shopper departed the store only to discover (an hour later when sharing my newly found love of daring lip-gloss with a friend) that what was placed into my goodie bag was in fact a nude colored gloss.  UMMM WHAT?
Racing back to the store (remember, this is an important piece to outfit completion for this evening) down a windy 7th Avenue – no coat – bumping into crowds.
I made it back to the counter, unable to find my original sales lady. After capturing the attention of another retail assistant I was informed they were sold out of that color.

SERIOUSLY??????????????????

So my outfit may now be ruined – and not sure I am  able to make it to dinner.
Does this stop me being cuckoo for Coco??
Let’s be honest, NO. The reason it was sold out is because their products ARE SO GOOD!!
I must continue on and find solace in a different lip color for the evening.

I will leave you with a few parting words from Coco herself.

“Fashion changes, but style endures.”
– Coco Chanel

Chanel love forever.
