The ii Style Diaries: How not to freeze to death 

The fine art of not freezing your ass off while skipping tights and allowing bare skin to be exposed to the bitter cold temps outside is something that has taken me quite some time to nail down.  But after a number of failed attempts I’d say that I’ve finally nailed it. It’s all about investing well to ensure that your feet and head are warm.) The quintessential pieces from top to bottom:  The right socks are crucial.  I will ...

Suede Swing

My all black NYC uniform made an appearance in Dallas a few weeks back! A few style tips for the girl on a budget below. These boots are so similar to my Stuart W but are only $103. Stocking up on an extra pair just because! In NYC or San Fran? You can now rent pieces from my closet through the StyleLend app including this (and many!) Chanel bag(s)! What?! They're on average $100 for a one ...

Impossibly Delicious Cocktail Holiday Edition: Mulled Wine

Mulled wine has helped see me through nearly eight years of blizzard like conditions in New York. It's true. When I moved to the East Village my apartment was conveniently located next door to this little bar that I still to this day refer to as the 'yellow bar' (its name is actually St. Dymphna's.)

Last Minute Christmas Shopping with 6PM.COM

On Repeat

It's rare that I wear an entire outfit more than once, let alone one that is seemingly as "simple" as this one. I have this need to keep mixing things up, rotating my favorite pieces while making them feel fresh and new. However, this particular look is on repeat. Aside from the fact that it fits into my NYC uniform requirements very well, it's a class ensemble that transitions easily from office to cocktails. The best ...

Texas Winter

I grew up in Dallas where we rarely saw snow, our cars were defrosted and heated up before we drove them and winter fashion consisted of one coat and beanies/gloves and warm socks were only necessary for the annual family ski trip. Since moving to New York winter has taken on a different meaning especially in terms of my personal style, I have gotten quite creative in my layering strategy. I have quickly grown to ...

When the weather is as atrocious as it is right now there are few ways to manage to look pulled together while maintaining some sense of personal style without looking like the michelin man and unfortunately the end is not insight. Mother nature is just now blessing us with her winter presence, but with the right layering tactics you can at least look like you’ve got it together (style wise at least!) and not be ...
