Madewell 1937 Contest

I have been slightly obsessed with the new Madewell 1937 store in SOHO. It is just the right mix of bohemian style. So I spoke with a representative from Madewell and they have offered to give one of my lucky readers a t-shirt from the store (size small). All you need to do is pick your favorite item from the Madewell 1937 website and tell me what you would pair it with. I will then pick one lucky winner who has composed the best outfit and they will win the tee. Email your entries to

Hot or Not? Colored Tights

I have seen an infusion of these jewel toned colored tights lately. Sparked partially by H&M's ad campaign. The thing is I think these tights only look good with black, otherwiste there is just too much color. The verdict is still out.

Beauty Find: Trish McEvoy Lip Stain

I love lip gloss but after about five minutes all of the color has disappeared leaving my lips bare. And traditional lipsticks can dry out lips especially in the winter.
Trish McEvoy has come up with the perfect solution. This lip stain goes on glossy and smooth while the staining action maintains lip color. $28

Stylish Boots for the Snow

Ice storm? No problem? Stay warm, comfy and dry in these stylish boots. I love the laces on these Tretorn Ballena Rubber Boots. The extra detail really sets them apart from the typical rubber boot. Or try the Tory Tory Burch Winnie Rubber Boot $295. A bit more expensive but you can hardly tell they are rubber at all. Both styles available at

Holiday Dresses at Madewell 1937

J.Crews newly launched off-shoot Madewell 1937 has opened a temporary store in SOHO. I went for the first time today and they had some adorable 100% silk dresses, blouses and skirts that would be perfect for the holidays. What I like about these pieces is they can be dressed up for fancier occasions. I think they would look amazing with the lace tights I posted about earlier in the month. Or they can be paired more casual pieces like in the photos.

Modernization of the Cowboy Boot

The cowboy boot is back again. This time with a more modern twist. These styles by Frey (Sunny Short Pleat Boot) and Miss Sixty (Ester Boot) show the evolution of the western boot. They have more sleek finishes, shape and texture but definitely the unmistakable toe of a cowboy boot. Available at Habitat Shoes.

Beauty Find: Stila Gift Set

Stila is one of my favorite brands of cosmetics. They are always coming up with really innovative products. Their "Best of Stila" gift set is really cute. And the product colors are neutral enough for any skin type. The packaging is really cute too. $60 at Sephora.
