The first invite I got for fashion week was the Coach/Harper's Bazaar party to celebrate their Spring 2015 collection. After that the rest of my events fell into place. So I figured I would share my outfit with the main event! While this event was really fun, it wasn't my favorite part of the day since it was mostly about shopping the store (and I can do that any time.) With that said, we got to enjoy delicious macarons, get Coach-inspired manicures and saw the Spring line modeled in store, which was super cool!

I brought heels to change into for my outfit, but who was I kidding? After a day of walking around the city and then to be standing in heels in a store for 2 hours, no way! So my Coach pumps stayed safely inside my overflowing purse. Oh well, live and learn!

Thanks to my lovely friend Alyssa for taking the photos and coming to the party with me!

And a few party snaps:

Back in October, Harpers Bazaar shared a bunch of 70s style icons and there was a photo of Farrah Fawcett (below) in wide-leg denim with an oversized blazer and color coordinated button down. Immediately I thought of this vintage blazer I got a couple years ago and had to recreate the look! I even left my shirt unbuttoned an extra button! It looks as though she had one more button un-done, but I'm not that brave.

P.S. Some sale updates:

As they say, April Showers bring May Flowers. Let's hope they all start popping up soon! We have a few in our yard, but not many. How gorgeous are these shots from Harper's Bazaar UK?

Happy Halloween everyone!!! I hope you have a day full of candy, scary (or non-scary for me) movies and fun!  Sadly I will be at work and won't get home until 8 so I won't be able to have my usual movie marathon. I'll have to pick my absolute favorite one (probably Casper or Hocus Pocus)

And now I leave you with this bewitching photo of Emma Watson from the October 2008 issue of Harpers Bazaar.  She is wearing Alexander McQueen (who can also be seen in the window and crystal ball.
I am proud to announce that I am now a Harper's Bazaar Brand Ambassador!  This means that I will be bringing you the latest in fashion and beauty from Harper's Bazaar and their affiliates. Before I get to the Brand Ambassador part of this post I thought I would talk about the magazine's recent redesign.  I LOVE it!  They have simplified the design and are using typography in such a great way. I went to school for graphic design so I get a little bit geeky about things like this. If you don't already subscribe to Harper's Bazaar you should! They have great articles, photography and one of my favorite features: Fabulous At Any Age.

Visit to book your appointment today! The site also has videos and a preview of the Dior New Looks for spring!  I made my appointment for this coming Saturday and can't wait! I will hopefully do a post after the event letting you know how it goes (that's the week I go to London so I might be pretty busy!)

I have personally never tried Dior makeup, I'm a Chanel addict, but I am really looking forward to trying it out at my appointment! Below I've posted some products I think will be lovely (click the images to go to product pages). Have you ever tried Dior makeup? What do you recommend?

* The Ambassadors are a nationwide network of Bazaar's most influential, well-connected, and fashionable readers who have been hand selected to represent Bazaar.  I am NOT, however, employed by Bazaar, my opinions are my own.  I am honored to be part of such a great group of women.
Before I get to my post check out my feature on Smashion!

Yesterday we had the day off work for President's Day.  I was looking forward to being very productive, doing a fun outfit shoot and relaxing. But that didn't happen. I did nothing until 4pm and then I decided to finally do something.  I got out my fashion magazines that I picked up from my parent's house yesterday to read and took some photos of my new Alligator pin! I actually got this a few weeks ago when I visited a friend at Yale, but haven't found the perfect way to wear him yet.  Then I realized that he matches my DKNY coat perfectly! So he has a new permanent spot in my closet and will finally start seeing the daylight! (in the summer I'll have to find some other ways to wear him)

Coat: DKNY, Pin: Laila Rowe in New Haven $10, Magazines: Vogue, Elle, Harper's Bazaar, Marie Claire
