Fall Style Post Featuring Bobi Los Angeles / Sorial / Anitanja Jewelry


Here's to my first fall style post this season, focusing on how I wear my Bobi Los Angeles t-shirts. In addition to feeling super comfortable and cozy, I love that Bobi's t-shirts have a longer silhouette and a flattering cut so that it's wearable for any body type. 

For my grey Bobi Los Angeles t-shirt, I can wear it as a hi-lo, a long tunic or when it's warmer out I can wear it as a dress. These t-shirts can easily be paired with leggings, jeans, or a skirt and are easy to layer with. 

For my second look, I went with a favorite fall look, pairing my long-sleeve Bobi Los Angeles with a pair of dark jeans and a leather jacket. 

As for accessories, I'm in love with Sorial's new Gramercy Backpack, which can be worn 3 different ways - as a backpack, cross-body or a long shoulder. It's made of vegan leather, and comes in several colors for fall. Also from the Gramercy collection is the embossed faux leather Envelope Clutch that comes with a chain shoulder strap. The clutch easily fits into Sorial Tote during the day, and allows me to check in my tote for evening events and use the clutch by itself. 

This season I was also just introduced to Anitanja jewelry, inspired by St. Lucia nature. Each piece really tells a story and is beautifully crafted and detailed, especially my necklace from the Drift Cone collection.

Shop It! Accessories That Support Breast Cancer Awareness

Here are some of my favorite accessories supporting Breast Cancer Awareness month. These make the perfect gift for yourself or for a friend, while contributing to a great cause. 

Nashelle Rose Gold HOPE necklace, $103
50% of proceeds go to Stand Up 2 Cancer


25% of proceeds go to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center's BeSMART


20% of sales go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation

I love using this tote as an everyday work bag! It fits everything including my DSLR camera and pair of heels and because the bag itself is lightweight, it doesn't weigh me down when I put a lot of stuff in it. It's the one style I have in different colors so I can always have one with me, from light to dark or more classic colors.

Accessories Council Bridal Picks 2014


This month has been full of bridal previews and weddings, so it's the perfect time to recap some of my favorites from Accessories Council #ACTOPPICKS Bridal event. 

At the top of my list are Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye and Face Gels. The cooling under-eye Hydro Firming Eye Gels ($30) are firm, tone and de-puff the eye area in just ten minutes. The Hydro Cool Firming Face Gels ($35) are peptide-packed transdermal patches, with a concentrated dose of line-plumping ingredients to firm, tone and flatten expression lines in just ten minutes. You can refrigerate them for an extra cooling effect. 



Art deco Roman & Sunstone Antique Crystal Drop Earrings ($24) and Swarovski Bella Mini Pierced Earrings ($60) both add a little sparkle and glamour to any dress.




My favorite headbands are by Deepa Gurnani, known for their beaded and crystalized hair accessories, jewelry, belts and more. One of my favorites is the elegant Crystal Detail Headband ($88) with luxe crystals on the fabric-backed petals. Deepa Gurnani elastic headbands comfortably stay in place all day long without hurting your head. 


This mesh Jessica McClintock Frame Bag with Bow in Silver ($36) is fun with feminine edge, and easy to pair with your party dress. 


The Girly Go Garter ($39) with GentleFlex Grippers is a sexy, thigh garter with pockets that securely holds your phone, cash, credit cards, lipstick or other essentials. It's easy to wear - just stretch the garter around your thigh and secure it with the velcro. This hands-free accessory comes in sizes small, medium and large. 


Straw Envy reusable drinking straws ($27.99) dress up your drink, embellished with crystals. The set includes two BPA-free plastic straws and a carrying case so you can sip in style while on-the-go!
