Spice up a blouse

I am a fan of creating multiple looks with key pieces. I like to create a “look” board (or collage) so that I have images ready to see how to mix and match pieces in my closet. Here is one I created recently for my dear niece Rayne – as a recent Ivy League graduate (yes, we are proud), living in NYC, it’s about balancing the budget with having to get ones fashion groove on! The looks below can transition from a work day, to the weekend brunch. Add a blazer for a more corporate look, a scarf if it’s getting chilly, switch out the sandals for boots or a pair of Jack Purcell’s – don’t be scare to think outside the box and see what works for you as you push the envelope a little each time! 


Now for the #TOTD – so true right?


Are you sure it’s only $19.90?

I love deals!!!! And this one you do not want to miss!  I was searching for a pair of burgundy and bottle green leather leggings/pants and scarily was ready to spend some $$$ when I came across these amazing faux leather leggings from Forever 21 – perfect for what I was looking for and perfectly priced for pieces that are likely going to be for a season or so.

They will go fast! So if you are in search of a bargain, consider these:

Indego by Vineet

The final leg of our trip was back to Dubai, for some family time. We decided to celebrate with dinner at Indego by Vineet, known as Dubai’s best Indian Restaurant. Indego is located in one of the towers of the Gosvenor House hotel – the perfect location since we were staying at the Grosvenor House. 

I definitely concur with the reviews- Indego was fantastic. The food was delicious, the service impeccable and the decor beautiful. If you happen to be in Dubai, this is definitely a must try. 

The restaurant offers both inside and outside seating – why not follow your dinner with some dancing at the Embassy (all you need to do is cross the driveway to the other Grosvenor House tower). 




Body Body Body – Suits!

Bodysuits are a great way to add some “sexy” to your stride – they can dress up on outfit and easily transition your look from day to date night.  A lot has been made about the bodysuits by Wolford and of course Agent Provocateur – but they do come with a price tag!  I just received a few from H&M – unbelievable!! they are great quality and body shaping! And all under $40.

Pair with jeans or with a suit – you will not be disappointed!  There is no need to hide that summer body after all!
