My 'Marie Claire' fifteen minutes of fame

Amanda Hearst is a New York socialite, fashion model, and heiress to the Hearst Media corporation, and the Associate Market Editor at Marie Claire Magazine. She's gorgeous, down to earth, is always smiling and is so talented it's no wonder she has her own blog, "Amanda's Eye Blog," on the Marie Claire website.

Recently she asked me, along with a few other interns to come to work wearing our favorite jeans...

Check out me along with the other interns on Amanda's blog here

Closet Diaries: faux fur

Madison Square Park. The sun is out...beautiful
My roommate and I walked almost 9 miles yesterday, from mid town to the Wall Street/The World Trade Center. It was a long walk but it went by so fast because of the beautiful weather and the ever changing scenery of New York City; walking from Midtown West through the Garment District (my territory <3), to Chelsea through the West/Greenwich Village then Soho and Tribeca-where we made sure to stop by the Smyth hotel where Kim and Kourtney K. stayed during their time in NYC for DASH- to our destination in the Financial District. It was absolutely wonderful, the sun was shining so I threw on my oversized sunglasses...I'm wearing a vintage oversized wool sweater (so warm) with my lovely faux fur vest and chunky black knit scarf from Urban Outfitters, Levi skinny jeans vanilla oxfords I found at a cute shop in Soho a few weeks ago (I really hate myself for not remembering the name of the store because it was absolutely fabulous), my black studded leather gloves and my Michael Kors Hamilton bag in black. I can't tell you how happy I am that I didn't have to put on my huge winter jacket, so liberating. Spring is on it's way! It's so close I can smell it... <3

Closet Diaries: A day in Chelsea

Wen't to Chelsea and visited MILK studios...a favorite for top magazines, especially Marie Claire. We use MILK studio every cover-shoot. This is also the place where America's Next Top Model shoot their episodes. 
The weather was beautiful...the sun was out and the overrated winter coat was not needed so I took full advantage of it. Wearing a Poncho I snagged at a cute little boutique on 8th Avenue, American Apparel leggings, Michael Kors belt, Steve Madden over the knee leather boots, and my favorite Michael Kors Hamilton tote. Of course my favorite accessory of it all, Grande Skinny Hazelnut Soy cafe misto....I would die without my Starbucks. It's an addiction that I've come to accept, mainly because I love it so much. I was lazy and threw sunglasses on and my hair up in a bun.
On our way to the Chelsea Market, we passes this Posh Pets Rescue Animal Adoption place that had the cutest little babies ever!!! I fell in love with this cute little gray kitty who had a pretty pink flower around her neck. She was precious.
I think the Universe is trying to tell me to get a pet because after almost adopting a kitten, we passed a pet store who literally had doggies in the window!! I not only fell in love with a kitten, I fell in love with puppies too, it was torture and I came home empty handed...
I was obsessed with this puppy. So playful, so happy, so full of life... it killed me to leave her.

Lady Gaga, a real live Vogue Beauty Queen!

Lady Gaga expressed how proud she was to be on the cover of Vogue through her twitter:
"They use to call me rabbit teeth
 in school, and now I'm a real live
Follow Gaga on Twitter @ladygaga

She's wacky, distinct, loving, a one of a kind character that is fresh and intriguing....a shock our culture needs to finally be comfortable with being ourselves. She's not afraid to go above a beyond, to cross boundaries and push her own limits. Whatever she does, wherever she goes, whoever she's with, she's always leaving us wanting more...
