Lately I've fallen in love with black. The darkest of the dark stark to match my soul.

Not just Gothic, nor romantic, not just classy nor vampy.
Finally I have grown up to see black for what it is. Not boring nor conventional!
Well how could it be when it comes in such wonderful things such as feathers and tulle, satins and chiffon. 
Black is the epitome of chic.
 And so I've made my peace that black will never be just black as long as I wear it! 

The Glitter's Way to Wearing black is simple: Just mix textures and style notes! 
When all else fails just add some sparkle.

The Making of a Love Story

Zara Blouse, Aldo faux-fur vest, Topshop Hat and Tights, FreePeople jean shorts ( c/o), Jeffrey Campbell boots, sunglasses borrowed from boyfriend

February, ahhhh, what a confusing month. 
Never did like it much, even with all that cheesy Valentine's day charade of a holiday.
For me February has always been the month of 'Get out of here cause I'm ready for spring'.

So in the attempt to get my head in the springy game, I rolled out of bed this morning in my new jean shorts courtesy of Free People. The perfect transitional piece to carry me through to summer. Wear them now with tights and a furry vest, then later with a loose eyelet flowy top and wedges.

But to prove to you that my heart is not made of ice I'll leave you on a romantic note; one Free People calls Roshambo, a short  film  about a love story set in Brooklyn, starring actor Christopher Abbott of the hit show ‘Girls,’ alongside model Sheila Marquez.

Baby, You're a Star

Wearing: H&M sweater, skirt, tights, earrings and  bracelet, Marc by Marc Jacobs watch, Christian Siriano for Payless boots, Prada Sunglasses, Pixie Shoes Clutch

You know those days you rush out of the house, where you quickly throw you newest acquisitions from your former favorite high-street fashion store and hope the look was exactly as you pictured it when you bought it.

 As you quickly walk the downtown streets rushing to your appointment, you somehow have a thought of doubt that maybe you needed something more, or maybe something less.

 Then from out of nowhere, you hear the scream "Baby you're a star !"
As starry as the stars on my ears!
