Oh my gosh, the snow is coming down today in New York City. It is insanely beautiful if you can stay in doors and not travel in the blizzard. I am right now as we speak sitting at my empty, bare desk as I finish packing up my beautiful apartment.
Snail mail is completely underrated. I love receiving a beautiful handwritten letter in the mail. The intricate design, the cute note, the pretty paper… It makes my heart so happy. When I am sending a gift, or a thank you card, I thoroughly enjoy shifting through the handmade letter options picking out the right card for that person in mind. It’s that last personal touch that completes the gift or shares the sentiment.
So when I heard about Basic Invite and the plethora of custom-made cards they carried, I felt like a kid in a candy shop. From thank you notes to special announcements ( ehm like personalized graduation announcements that is right around the corner), Basic Invite offers a card for every celebration. And they are so glamorous, take a look!

Voices of rural women are being heard this month at the United Nations’ Commission on the Status of Women (CSW62). The topics range from abuse against women, to labor laws, women in politics, giving the tools and support to empower women, and how to educate men in respecting women. I had the opportunity in talk with several world leaders on a more casual basis while listening to different panels. These are the topics, people, and organizations that stood out the most. Here is the future of Gender Equality In Rural Areas:
Did you know that Balmain has a sister line called Pierre Balmain? It originated in 2011 as a way for consumers to own a piece from the Balmain brand without having to pay the heavy price. The design team, the same group who oversees Just Cavalli, takes inspiration from Olivier Rousteing’s collection and create pieces that reflect the Parisian military style Balmain is known for. You’ll find a plethora of well structured, fitted blazers, skirts, and Moto jeans within the Pierre Balmain collection. If you take a look at Balmain newest arrivals, you can see the similarity in the two lines (just the price is different!). I have found the most challenging part is finding a place to shop the Pierre Balmain.
So where can you get the latest from Pierre Balmain?

It’s here! Gucci’s Spring Collection has hit most retailers for pre-order and online ordering… And it’s pretty insane. Take a look for yourself to see if you are willing to buy one of these designer pieces for Spring 2018.
The nice part of this collection is that most pieces are classically designer and will last a life time. The sequin jumpsuit is just something to completely marvel at. I seriously want to know which celeb will be spotted int it. I personally can see Jeffree Star rocking the look.
The all beloved kitten heel is trending again and I couldn’t be happier. The uber chic heel elevates an outfit instantaneously, while giving you the ability to walk around all day. I’ve personally been rocking a pair of velvet kitten heels all winter long (see below!), and glad that Spring will be filled with these shoes as well.
On the search for the perfect kitten heels for spring, I found these insanely fun pairs that I would wear. I really love bows and backless kitten heels, but don’t be afraid to play with metallics and sling backs as well. You can easily pair these with jeans, skirts, or shorts. Let me know in the comments which ones you would wear!
