Happy Friday & hello after an amazing 1st day spent at Alt Summit! This place is intense!! I’ve met so many incredibly creative & talented people in just one day…I can’t wait to see what the next few days have in store.

For me, the best part of the day was listening to one of my favorite photographers & all-around female idols, Jasmine Star, speak about creating your own brand. Jasmine’s a self-made dreamer who has achieved so much personally & creatively…a true inspiration to go after your dreams & dream BIG!

Have a wonderful weekend, Lovelies!

P.S.: I was “Mr Plum” for last night’s Clue-themed party. People got insanely creative with their costumes!!

One Skirt, Two Ways {Part 2}

 
Miss Renaissance Miss Renaissance Miss Renaissance Miss Renaissance

{Skirt – Milly (sold out, but check out this one), Blouse - J.Crew, Jacket – Smythe (old), Boots – Alaia (snatched up at 50% off via Luxury Garage Sale), Gloves – J.Crew, Sunglasses – Celine, Tights - Ann Taylor.}

Last week’s rendition of this skirt was a more mild-weather appropriate option (for those of you who are lucky enough to live in warm climates, I so envy you right now!) For the rest of us, Winter has arrived and we need a few extra layers to make it through the next months. Soooo, here’s my cold-weather option for this skirt. The dotted tights and mixed patterns keep it interesting & fresh. I’ll just throw a mid-length coat on top (and maybe a set of ear muffs for extra cold days) and I’m ready to head out for a fun Winter evening!

{On all fingers – RGB Stone, Neon accents – China Glaze Celtic Sun, Gold glitter accents – Butter London West End Wonderland.}

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with friends, family, good food and some time to relax. I’m still stuck in a bit of a food coma this morning thanks to a fantastically huge dinner last night!!

Remember my talented new friend Astrowifey? I visited her for another manicure the other day and her creative & immaculate work still blows my mind. I came to her with a few ideas of what I wanted, and she managed to combine them and make my manicure modern, funky, geometric (which I love right now), glittery (which I love even more) and fun! I smile every time I look at my nails these days.
