I don’t know about you, but I live for wearing my Halloween costume on the actual holiday. Did you know that Halloween falls on a Tuesday this year? I think there’s nothing more fun than wearing a Halloween costume to work. Here’s a cute and super easy cat costume that can be worn to the office or any party where you might not have too much time to put together an over the top Halloween costume. Here’s how I achieved it:

Cat Ears

I attempted to make cat ears, but they didn’t quite turn out so great. Sigh. But my plan B was to wear two little mini hair buns where my cat ears would have been. I simply twisted two sections of my hair and twisted them to make these buns. I think it would be so cute to add a little glitter or hair paint to these as well.

Eye Make Up

I rarely leave the house without cat eye eyeliner. I will admit that it took me a while to learn how to apply. The good thing is that you can draw a cat eye in several different styles. Pick the one that’s easiest for you. You can also skip the eye liner and achieve the cat eye look with eye shadow.

Nose & Whiskers

These really make the costume. I used a black eye liner pencil to draw in the dot on my nose and the fun whiskers. It took just a few minutes and I felt totally transformed into a kitty cat!

Can you believe that summer is pretty much gone? Temperatures in New York City have already dropped and we’re already starting to grab our fall fashion essentials. But who doesn’t love fall fashion? Fall is magical in New York and dressing for it can be too! Here are three fall must haves that every fashionista needs to have in her closet for this fall:

 

Jean Jacket

There’s nothing more versatile and easier to wear than a jean jacket. It should be illegal to not own at least one. I have about five in my closet in different washes and styles. I love throwing them on with dress pants and over date night dresses when the temperature starts to dip down in the fall.

 

Scarf

Scarves of all sizes and in all prints and colors are a must-have for throwing over your shoulders or tying around your neck to create the perfect fall look. Pair your favorite scarf with a long sleeve t-shirt for the most adorable fall look.

 

Backpack

Nothing says fall like a backpack. I have a million of them and get nostalgic when getting a new one for the fall season. There are so many super adorable ones around these days in a variety of colors, styles, and materials. Try trading in your over-sized purse for a backpack and turn heads while you head stylishly into fall.

Shining Shining Shining: Back to School Metallics

Individuality is important. As you go through your years in school, you’ll find yourself shying away from fitting in and suddenly find yourself embracing being the center of attention. One way to start that transition is with fashion!

Fashion is all about having fun! And what’s more fun than metallics and shimmer. One of the hottest fashion trends right now is metallics. Most people think of wearing shimmery dresses and shine only during the holiday season. I’ve always loved seeing touches of glitter, metallic and lurex during the day. How stunning and refreshing is a cute metallic skirt with a blazer or dresses down with a jean jacket? It is definitely a unique look that is both eye-catching and appropriate for school. The versatility of the look is perfect because it can be dressed down for school and dressed up for after school activities like a chic hangout with friends.

Lately, we’ve seen metallic and the shimmery look in so many new ways and colors. The sky is truly the limit with how you can wear and style this look. If the idea of wearing shimmer during the day or even in the evening seems like too much, here are two ways to easily jump into the trend for look to wear to class.

 

 

Jean Jacket to help Dress Down

Metallics and shimmer pieces can be a bit loud. Dress them down with a jean jacket for a fun look that still let’s your shine and sparkle shine through. Have fun mixing different jean washes with your fun glittery and sparkly pieces.

 

 

Cute Sweater

I love the look of a long sweater over a long dress or skirt. I found a number of amazing metallic and shimmery dresses on a recent shopping trip to a nearby Goodwill. All of these super adorable dresses could be worn with either cropped or long sweaters in solids or prints.
