A night out on Instagram

It started snowing on Friday, calling for one magical night.
Had to snap a few pictures before heading to dinner. As suspected all traces of snow were gone by the next day ( at least in the city).
Everyone needs a little bit of sparkle
 This past weekend my guy and I had our very first date night of 2013, pretty exciting huh? This happened for two reasons:
(1) I felt a desperate need to play dress up and forget about the cold
(2) It’s restaurant week in NYC (coveted words to any New Yorker)

The decor @Ajna Bar is one of my favorites.

I am still having dreams about their molted chocolate dessert.

Meatpacking District is one of my favorite neighborhoods for a night out. Sipping amazing cocktails, listen to a DJ spinning tunes all meanwhile you are comfortably seated in a plush cushion of a sofa. It’s busy and loud yet cozy, dark and romantic. This was the perfect antidote to the winter blues we’ve been experiencing.

I’ve lined up a few more of these rendezvous nights out and will be sharing with you in due time.

Brooklyn Bridge

Blazer: J. Crew
Jeans: J. Crew
Sweater + shoes: J.Crew
Bag: Prada
Watch: Gucci

Happy Monday dolls,

Brooklyn Bridge is one of my favorite places that always lifts my spirits and yes I was the only one wearing pink in January. It’s safe to say I’m easy to spot, which is what I tell my guy all the time and I’m sticking to it. What are the spots in your city that you keep on coming back to from time to time?

PS. On a completely unrelated note, has anyone started planning their vacations for 2013? Please tell me I’m not the only one roaming the pages of travel magazines & websites? Must be the winter blues!

One of my favorite pieces in MOMA - Christina's World

I finally paid a visit to MOMA ( I haven’t been in a very long time) and it’s such a pleasant surprise to see so many loved and familiar pieces that I’ve been coming to see for years.
As much as I am hating this bitter NYC cold (yes I know I complain far too much about it), I must admit it’s allowing me to pay a visit to some of my favorite museums and galleries. Which brings me to my night version of these pants (last worn here ).
Where do you like to hide from the cold, except the couch that it?

 Happy Friday!

Rock of Ages

Shirt: Club Monaco (old)
Pants: Madewell
Blazer: J. Crew
Shoes:  Rachel Roy
Sunglasses: Ray Ban Aviators
Lipstick: Mac/Lady Danger
Necklace: Club Monaco (old)
Watch: Gucci

I love short weeks, who doesn’t, it makes the week just fly by. Unfortunately that means that the next week will drag on forever, but let’s not get into that just yet.

In a desperate effort to stay warm and after I drained my Starbucks I ended up in Madewell and couldn’t leave without purchasing these rock & roll  pants (after seeing Rock of Ages this weekend I firmly believe they came from one of their dressing rooms). Either way I love them, I wore them the next day and night (more on that later)  and I don’t know how I lived without them.

Black & White

My pup, Harley, made a cameo appearance that I just noticed myself
I love a black & white combo on shoes and decided to do pictures with both pairs, which do you prefer?
I wanted to try to do something artistic, not sure if I succeeded, but I'll keep on trying
A bit scary how much the water spills during high tide

Dress (worn as top): BCBG MaxAzria
Skirt: Zara
Tights: Club Monaco
Sunglasses: Prada
Watch: Gucci

Happy Monday! I can't believe this long weekend has come to its end. Other than the freezing temperatures in NYC, it's been a great, relaxing weekend, just what I needed to recharge.
These pictures were taking a few weeks ago on one of those super warm days, so don't be alarmed, I wouldn't attempt this any time soon.
Hope you & yours had a great weekend.

Lets talk HATS

Shoes: Max Studio
Hat: HM
Lipstick: Nars/Roman Holiday
Ring: Club Monaco
This shoot took place in probably the coldest day you can possible imagine and I seriously couldn't feel my fingers for a good half hour after. I think my face and body were so frozen that I was just stuck in one pose. Ugh the things we do..

The good news is that it's Friday! Does anyone have any exciting plans or getaways for the extended weekend? Do tell! Since I'll probably be stuck at home, periodically making Starbucks runs. I think this weekend will only get colder, if that's even possible, which means I'll be fishing out my DVD draw (Sex and the city marathon anyone?)

PS: Did I mention I love hats? Well I do and I make a conscious effort not to wear them every time, which makes it that more exciting when I do.

Neon + weekend moments

 My guy and I had absolutly one of the best Sundays ever. You know those days when you have nothing planned and yet you end up seeing and doing more then you could have piled on in one day?
This blue door caught my attention, so we quickly snapped some shots.

Don't know what it is about sunglasses but I instantly feel bold and confident. Thanks to  for gifting me these amazing Ray Bans (Clubmaster). Get your fix here.

Got lost in West Village and found this block that completely took my breath away. Looks like one of those narrow quaint streets you find in Italy. Either way had to share with you.

 After a quick brunch and a stop at Milk & Cookies Bakery, we headed home to watch the Golden Globes.
How was your weekend?
