Tory Burch Spring 2011 Collection

Here are some photos I took at last weeks Tory Burch fashion presentation. The girls all looked lovely in their 70's inspired looks. Some of my favorite things from the show were the high waisted skirts and the bright pops of orange. Overall the styles were really pretty, flirty and feminine. Lots of pieces on my shopping list for Spring!

Opening Ceremony and Pendelton

For Fashions Night Out last night I attended the Opening Ceremony's French flea market at the Ace Hotel. The real stand out of the evening for me was the Opening Ceremony Pendelton collaboration collection. Opening Ceremony brilliantly transformed the signature patterns and prints of Pendelton into high fashion pieces.

Minx Nail Decals

I have been seeing the most amazing nail jobs lately in New York. Yesterday I saw a girl on the corner and each of her fingernails was painted a different shade of pink. And today at the pharmacy my cashier had the most amazing mint green nails and one nail on each hand had an intricate black and white pattern. I started to think am I going to the wrong salon? I did some research and found out that these crazy patterns are most likely Minx nail decals. They can only be applied by a certified salon which you can find on their website. Sephora also launched Chic Print for Nails which come in several fun dyi patterns $15.
