Close your eyes...

...feel yourself already having what you want.
 This takes you from a state of wanting 
to a state of being.

Oscar Fashion

Favorite of the night: Cate Blanchett in Givenchy. 
She's pushing the boundaries in Oscar fashion and doing it so well.
Milla Kunis effortlessly sexy in Elie Saab
Michelle Williams looking absolutely stunning in Chanel Couture 
Gwyneth Paltrow looking like Oscar gold in this Calvin Klein dress.
I've never seen Celine Dion look this amazing, wearing Giorgio Armani Prive.

Snowy morning bliss..

With some mixed fruit, coffee and a brand new book, I am experiencing one of those mornings that only come around every so often...a morning of pure relaxation. My mom sent me this book as a Valentines day gift. For those of you who have read The Secret, if not I'm sure we have all read at least one-if not all-of the Chicken Soup books. Well, the talent behind those books came together to create this new and inspirational book The Soulmate Secret
I believe that love is possible. I believe that for those of us who think it and feel it and believe that it's possible will find love, it's just the matter of being ready and ready for full commitment. This book, who's reviews have been nothing but good from those who have read it cover to cover. Mastin Kipp, the founder of The Daily Love, has been raving about it this past month. 
Unfortunately I'm not ready for my soulmate. Yes, it's a sad tale but I'm so in love with New York, I'm so in love with Marie Claire, I'm so in love with where I am in my life that I don't need a soulmate to make me happy. However, this book has so fantastic insight into the world of soul mates and how to manifest the love of your life with the law of attraction.  

I'm wearing a cute leopard cardi over a light wash denim button up shirt from Urban Outfitters. That's not as important as my hair at the moment...I've finally gone back to my natural color. My mom has always been hinting that I should go back to my natural color. Well, mom, I did and I am so happy I did.  I can't help but wonder why I was so persistant on covering up this beautiful auburn/red/brown color that I was born with. This is my effort to love and embrace everything about myself that I've been changing since I can remember. Better late then never.

A day in the life of..

Carrie Bradshaw
We explored the west village and managed to find ourselves walking past Carrie Bradshaw's apartment and running into the playground that Miranda met Steves girlfriend, tripped over the stroller ending in her white granny pannies revealing themselves. For breakfast? I had a veggie burger-don't judge-at this cute little diner, "Cosmic Diner," on 52nd street and 8th Ave. The best veggie burger I've ever tasted, and trust me, I've tasted a lot of 'em. If you're ever in the area I recommend you try it. The prices are cheap too so it won't break your bank.

Lady Gaga of Fashion Week

Anna Dello Russo
The Editor-in-Chief of Japanese Vogue, the Lady Gaga of Fashion week and one of the most coveted fashionistas in all of fashion land. She's fierce and fearless, a dynamic duo that never ceases to fail. With her lively character and quick whit when it comes to outlandish outfits and off the wall accessories-think cherries and watermelons- this talented Editor really knows how to make a lasting impression.
While I was hanging out at Lincoln Center today, during New York fashion week, I saw Anna walking in to attend the Michael Kors show. She was fashionably late as well as very fashionable looking gorgeous-as always- in a black and gold military inspired number (far left photo) with a headband that puts the cherry on the cake...literally. Last season she repped cherries and watermelon during fashion week, good to see she's keeping the tradition alive. Only Anna Dello Russo could make gold cherries look sexy...if I look as good as she does when I'm 47 I will be the happiest woman on earth. LOVE her..and her body? Amazing...hello legs!

New York Fashion Week

 The highlight of my life was tonight. I got to experience Fashion week at the heart of it all in New York City. Custo Barcelone. AMAZING!! I wore a vintage dress from Chicago, black studded "Carrie Bradshaw" belt and Michael Kors Tatum booties. No words can describe.
