A large portion of my job as a Stylist and a Style Director is to know what designers, brands, etc are coming out with and although the season is getting pretty chilly and many are beginning to wrap their mind around the holiday season, I am up to my eyeballs in Resort and SS17 collections. By staying ahead, I am able to pull for my magazines in advance, prepare for my TV segments and to see what is out there. Earlier this week, I saw a cohesive collection of classics with a twist which included wide leg pants, asymmetrical pieces and fun prints via Ann Taylor. This spring/summer presentation had a tropical and nautical vibe which had vibrant prints and a number of ways that navy was elevated throughout the line.

The past two months have been amazing with the launch of Athleisure Mag which focuses on fashion meets fitness meets lifestyle. As Co-Founder and Style Director of this platform, I love interacting with all the people that we do in order to make it all come together.
In addition to my role here, I am the Fashion Editor of DJ Mag and love creating projects as a Statement Stylist and more. If you're fortunate enough to be in NYC or other cities experiencing a warmer then normal winter - it makes you get just that much more excited for Spring. Starting March 1st, I will share must have essentials for Spring 2016 which I will share throughout the month of March. In addition, you will get my weekly call outs of items that are a must each week from projects that I am working on.

Valentine's Day is about spreading the love to friends and family but it's the point in the year where you feel that Spring is nearby. As a Statement Stylist, I am constantly working with great brands and to share their message so that you can include within your closet and lifestyle. For those that are followers, you know that I will be in Mexico later this week sharing some of my favorite must haves which are perfect for when you're traveling. Many of these items will also be included within my Valentine's Guide known as the #LoveFest16. Whether you're focused on including these items into Valentine's gifting or simply getting ready for warmer temperatures, think of this guide as a preview version of the Spring Guide that will be shared on this site in a few weeks. I will also tweet about must have brands as this guide will also reference items worth noting as I navigate New York Fashion Week Mens (Feb 1st - 4th) as well as New York Fashion Week (Feb 11th - 18th).
#LoveFest will be within previews from Jan 27th - Jan 31st (social while I am at Villa Del Palmar in Baja, Mexico on a press trip), the guide will be live on Feb 1st - Feb 14th and you can learn about brands via social from Feb 1st - 7th. On Valentine's Day, there will be fun twets I share about all brands that participated. Just in case you didn't nab them prior to the day of love but can still get the day of or after.

As a stylist, I am always asked about how accessories and apparel can be worn during certain events or times of the year. Check out my latest article in Vogue Italia on how gold can be worn during the Autumn. It is available in English and in Italian (this will be up shortly).

When you run around throughout the city, there are buildings that always catch my eye. Earlier this week when I was on the roof styling a shoot, I saw one of my favorite buildings from a different perspective just as the sun began to set. Between the sunset and the lighting on the architecture, it was not only a moment to capture but one that was inspirational for a future moodboard.

When I get a text, the phone rings or when I check emails and social networks - I never know what will be added into my schedule. As the week came to a close on Friday, I found myself included within a project that is taking place today. I love working with new people, working with entertainers and their team and meeting new challenges. Of course, I like to give peeks when I can as I have a number of amazing accessories (a number of them from Erwin Pearl), apparel, shoes and so much more! It's going to be such an interesting day and of course when I have items to share, I will pass them along here as well as on Statement Stylist.

Mon and Tues I was on set styling two shoots the above image is a peek from Heaven Has Heels' November issue which was shot at Fort Tryon here in NYC. You can only imagine what the entire shoot was. Make sure to continue following me on Instagram and Twitter to get more behind the scenes and to see published work on Statement Stylist or my portfolio.

When you have a back to back shoot that you're styling. The day before the first shoot includes a lot of prep that you're ready to go for both. The downtime between the two allows you to pack up from the previous shoot, assess how you will tackle the next one and to reset your mind for the next one. With that said, this weekend I have walked through both shoots forwards and backwards. In addition to loving what I do to get a vision from sketch to reality is my innate love of simply enjoying seeing beautiful creations. Within the two days of shoots I will have the joy of using emeralds, diamonds, an array of pink and yellow gold, platinum, calf hair, leathers and so much more! As a sneak peek (which over the next few weeks you'll see pieces shared whether in the shoot itself or in snaps that I share here as a behind the scenes look, this is just some of the fabulous pieces! This also comes at the perfect time as the Emmys are tonight

I'm always running around; however, today is my birthday and for the first time in a number of seasons, I am actually taking a break from the shows and enjoying a much deserved rest. I have always felt that your birthday is like the kick off of a new year and it's a great time to reflect and to ensure you're on the path that you believe is best. A couple of days ago, a major dream of mine took place - having an article about Alexandra Clancy (brand and designer profile) published in Vogue Italia on the first day of NYFW this past Thurs! It was so amazing to see that and to know that I am planning a number of shoots as I am a Statement Stylist and Accessory Expert for some fantastic magazines, am on deadline for some articles and seeing the growth of Mens Athleisure!

Yesterday was definitely a great day as Statement Stylist and Accessory Expert, I am always a fan of checking out accessory previews. Although I went to a number of them yesterday, those who follow me know that I am a fan of Sequin Jewelry which has a wide array of pieces that are within my sweet spot of statement jewelry and gold from chunky one of a kind necklaces, stacked bracelets and charms. Yesterday, I had the perfect pieces to add new visual texture to my look with a piece or two for Paul (as I am a Virgo, I had to get him his own Leo necklace). If you have yet to check out their site, it's a must and be on the lookout for their upcoming Fall 15 and Resort 16 collections.
