Leopard LOVE

I cannot remember the last time I was able to style some pieces then go out and shoot them for Pearls & Paris. It literally has been FOREVER, therefore it felt great to get back out there. One of my best friends has picked up photography and she has a great eye so it was a pleasure to have her shoot me.

I absolutely believe that Leopard is a neutral. It’s a staple print to have in your wardrobe and it blends well with so many shades and colors.

 I splurged on these Coach booties because they were truly love at first sight. Once they went on sale, I didn’t think twice about purchasing them. This chunky heel is not only super comfortable but very trendy this season. I’m looking forward to styling these with some fun colors in the upcoming months.

Unfortunately, these Felicia booties in leopard have sold out BUT if you like the style and shape, they are still available in black.

(Edit: as of 10pm / 12.28.15 certain sizes have come back in stock)

Style Icon #TBT with boohoo.com

I know what you’re thinking… Shareen, it’s Monday! Unfortunately due to the beautiful NJ weather and the numerous amount of inches we have accumulated over the last month or so, this post is a little late but regardless it’s a Throwback to one of my favorite Style Icons – Brigitte Bardot. She is known as the Queen of Boho Chic. This style has made a big come back especially during Festival season. What I love most about the Boho look is that you can dress it up or down and still look super chic.

How cute is this dress from boohoo.com?! This dress screams Brigitte Bardot and 60’s/70’s fashion to me. It’s feminine, flowy and floral. I would have loved to pair this dress with a cute pair of sandals but since it’s freezing here – I paired it with over the knee boots, a black bag and a braided thin belt to clinch the waist.

I wanted to show you how versatile a piece like this could be so here are two other ways you can style this type of dress.

Some other celebrities who rock the Boho Chic look flawlessly would be Nicole Richie, Kate Moss & Mary-Kate Olsen. This style is timeless and I don’t see it going away anytime soon. Click HERE to shop more 70’s fashion with boohoo.com.

Attire – Lobster De Mayo

Saturday night I had the pleasure of attending the Lobster De Mayo event. This event was hosted by The Food Network’s: Katie Lee and was held at Capitale in NYC. It was a showcase for many premier New York restaurants to prepare and share an evening of lobster inspired dishes and since Patron sponsored the event – the tequila was flowing.

Here was my outfit for the night:

Nails – I Need a Refresh-Mint

So I’m finally getting around to trying some of the new nail polishes I’ve received.

For this weeks manicure I am using Wet n Wild MegaLast in I Need a Refresh-Mint. At first glance I was a little iffy about the shade of blue’ish mint green in the bottle but I decided to give it a shot and OMG what a color!!!! The formula is top-notch & I can always appreciate polishes that don’t chip easily. The color is very pigmented and I really only needed 1 coat to cover the whole nail but added the 2 for that extra POP. Besides loving the actually shade of this polish, I really love the shape of the brush which Wet n Wild calls their Manicure pro brush. These retail for under $2. That price is a steal for the quality.
