Look of the Week

It appears we're on a roll guys! Not only does this fashionista have on our fave Zara shoes! But she's also rocking floral! I love how versatile these shoes are! Like really so so adorable, and mixed with the floral is just Devine! I'm also in love with her Rebecca Minkoff bag! I love the fun of summer/spring fashion!!!

Diva Download

I'm loving "We Are Young" by Fun. It's so cute & has the greatest beat! I first heard it in 'Gossip Girl' season finale this past Monday & I haven't turned it off yet!!!!

Can You Smell the Gays?

Well now you can! Bond No. 9 now had a unisex signature scent, representing the one year anniversary of the legalization of gay marriage in NYC! I'm a Bond No. 9 freak, I can't stop spraying my 'Central Park West' so I'll definitely be supporting this!!!!

Classic Edge

Ok you know how I love blazer dresses and this one is no exception! This dress is the perfect silhouette & it can be worn thousands of ways! I chose to show it with our fave Zara sandals for $50 and a vintage Judith Leiber belt from Etsy for $100! The dress is from Mango and runs around $70! How do you like?

Opposites Attract

So I am obsessed with sweat pants & heels!!!! I think it's so retro & chic, I mean who isn't comfy in sweats! All u need is a cute fitted tee shirt a pair of grey or dark green fitted sweats & I prefer a two strap sandal heel, but a stiletto pump will work just the same! Will you try?

Item of the Week

This dress from is amazing!!!! I love the color and the material is great for summer! It calls for a great link necklace or a small gold pendant! And I love how you can dress it up or down! Of course I prefer dressing it up, you know it's always better to be overdressed than under!

Fashion Police: Christa

This dress fits Christa to a T! I would have chosen a different bag, maybe a cocktail bag. I'm in love wth pillbox hats as you know so the hat is just the icing on the cake for me. The hat was the defining moment for this look, I love that she added this key item to give the look a direction! Other than the bag I would have loved this dress in black. But as a whole the look is very lady sings the blues meets woman on Fifth Ave.... Overall Grade B+

Christa's choice in colors with this look is amazing!!! I absoutely love the pop of orange added to the look! Again, this is a look where a necklace was definetly needed, nothing major just a gold link. The sleeves are FABULOUS & she allows the sleeves to be the focus! And I'm loving how well Christa works a dress... Overall Grade A=

So Christa definetly switched it up & went conservative on this one, this is a look alot of women can pull off and Christa must have a fab tailor because all of her clothes look perfectly fitted! I would have loved a more dramtic belt and a more severe shoe. Only because it lacks color maybe a pink or red belt or just a red shoe... Overall Grade C 

Fashion Police: Saafir Aalee

I LOVE this outfit, the boots are amazing, the fit of the jean is perfctection & I adore the leather jacket! For some strange reason I would have loved another shirt around his waist but it still has a great look without it. He is giving me NYC grunge & it works... Overall Grade A

Fashion Police: Jermika Chambers

So denim is all the rage as we know, & Jermika went for a strong shoulder denim dress which is right on trend! She added a nude shoe & gold hoops. So I'm in love with it because it's very simple yet still fashionable, I would have loved if she added a simple gold necklace as well & maybe a few extra small gold bangles since the dress is hott but still plain. Overal Grade B+

I believe this was around the holidays & I must say Jermika delivered gifts! The dress is divine it has class but still remains sexy her hair just enough & the boot dominated runways & streets alike this season. While pairing such a heavy shoe with such a delicate dress could've went wrong, in this case it went oh so RIGHT! I would have loved to see a tad more accessories but still a great look... Overal Grade A-

Jermika definetly made a statement in this dress, although I'm a bit on the fence with this one. I think the sleeves are just a tad too dramatic for me, the colors look gorgeous on her but just overpowers her. I would have liked a small gold bracelet but the sleeves didn't need anymore accessories & the shoe is a bit too heavy. I would have loved a nude point toe without a platfom. While Jermika has a gift of knowing what works for her and highlighting her figure in all the right places, this dress is just a bit too heavy for her amazing figure. Overall Grade D+
