I’m sure you’ve heard a million times over that a girl’s best day in her life is her wedding day. But I think that would almost be an understatement to how I feel about the day I finally said I do. Surprisingly, I didn’t feel nervous when the day came. I felt ecstatic and my dad and I were laughing down the aisle because he admitted to me he was more nervous than I was. Though I was feeling super anxious a few days prior with all of the things that could possibly go wrong, I accepted that I couldn’t control anything further I was still going to marry the love of my life if something didn’t go as planned. (Plus any last minute problems were now assigned to the help I hired, and she made sure my day was perfect). What might have shocked me more than anything is that at the end of the night, every single thing I planned went as expected. I can’t thank every single person involved in our wedding enough to have made our dream wedding a reality. View Full Post
I had the pleasure of going to The Club by DM for a wash and blow dry. My good friend Scarlett organized the whole event and I met some wonderful ladies who blog! I was greeted right away and had a mega luxurious wash. Is there anything more delicious than having your hair washed and styled for you? I think it’s such a treat. The DM team used Cloud 9 to wash and style my hair and it looked (and smelled!!) amazing! Here are the results…
Thank you so much The Club by DM for such a relaxing (and wonderful) experience! Be sure to stop by and give them a try- three minute walk from the A or C train 😉

About six months ago I started moving towards making plans to purchase my very own Catherine D’lish marabou gown. Cathrine D’lish is an extremely talented burlesque actress but also is a theatrical designer. Catherine also happens to be a costumer for the exquisite Dita Von Teese. According to wiki- Catherine was one of the 60 people that attended the wedding of Dita to Marilyn Manson. She creates some of the most incredible dressing gowns, nightgowns, costumes, and even mink bunny slippers. Who has ever heard of mink bunny slippers!? What a genius. When I first heard about her incredible marabou dressing gowns. I played with the idea of buying one but ultimately didn’t because I couldn’t “find a reason”. But true to my nature after a while of thinking about it, and seeing those hysterical memes– I ordered it. After ordering it, after about a month, every-time I got a notification that we received a package, I would sprint to see if the robe had finally come.
Of course I was a little overly eager and it took a few months to get to me seeing as though it was made to my measurements (you would think that of all people I would remember that). I really believe that if you want only for special occasions to buy something you really want or to wear something you love- you will watch it sit in your closet until the end of time. Fashion is meant to be fun. It’s meant to be worn. So while I’m all about protecting things that I find magical, I still wear them. It seems crazy to buy a feathered robe, but I really loved it! That’s enough reason to have one and run around making french toast in the morning with it on. Life is a special occasion.
If you love a piece of clothing- or in my case a piece of lingerie. Think of ways outside it’s traditional use that you could wear it. For example, I love wearing my marabou robe to wear as a swimsuit cover. It’s an incredibly playful way to wear it. I bought it in this double pink because pink is an easy color to dress up or down.
So while I might not own a marble house or be Dita or another famous lady, I can still feel pretty fucking glamorous out on the patio reading the paper.
Everyone needs a little more glamour in their lives- wouldn’t you agree?

Summer in NYC seemed to be the most interesting summer I’ve experienced yet. One day it stopped being warm and went directly into being so hot you thought you might actually be melting. With the “final days” of summer upon us, I try to wear all the summery breezy dresses I can before pulling on layers for the next six months. View Full Post
When I first moved to NYC last August (on the first to be exact) I really wasn’t totally sure of what was to come next. I knew I wanted to move to New York as a child. Even with the uncertainty of what I wanted out of life, and what I wanted to do with my career- I always knew that one day I would move to NYC. I am extremely fortunate that my fiancé also wanted to move to New York, and we had talked about it for four years. After my fiancé Brendan gradated from university in North Carolina, we both knew the time had come to make the big move. View Full Post
