Maroon meets Chocolate Bar in a Fedora Hat ;)

You’ve seen this blouse and this palette before a few times, they are both amongst my faves. Call it burgundy, maroon, cabernet, cranberry, wine and the list goes on but my point is: this color screams fall in every sense of chic! Not to mention is flattering on all skin colors from fair to dark you can’t go wrong with a Cabernet girlfriends!

In the latest I’m showing you two ways to wear the same outfit by switching accessories, first is for warmer days and the second option is for when the cold breeze visits us  :)

How Accessories can Make an Outfit!


Hey boys and girls, we all hear about the importance of accessories and how they truly make or brake a whole ensemble. For today’s look I embellished my all white canvas with a couple pops of yellow neon (a personal fave) to make things more interesting :) without these guys, this would be just another outfit, but with them it suddenly became a happy one! Do you agree??

I’m really using and abusing of the neons, but you already know that! I just feel like it can be such a fun color this time of the year. Think gray days with a pop of yellow…it’s like walking around with your private sunshine :)

Amen sisters!!


Valentino Casual

If you follow my social media you probably saw that I recently bought my dream shoe. Those freaking Valentinos have been in my mind for over a year, and I decided to indulge :)

To prove this is a versatile shoe even though it looks super dressy, I wore it to church with torn jeans (I attend iTown church btw, we’re totally allowed to not be in formal wear!!)

So, here’s the look..

FullSizeRender (1) FullSizeRender (1) valentino valentino2 valentino3Today I went with my regular glasses instead of my sunnies because I’ve been getting so many compliments on these! It’s funny because they’re simple glasses but they’re totally flattering on all face shapes (all girls at work tried them on, well not all but a lot of them!). They have gold glitter on the inside….soooooo cute!!!!

“She’s Always Buzzing just like…Neon, Neon”

Neon, neon
Who knows how long, how long, how long
She can go before she burns away” 

Now, who doesn’t love John Mayer’s Neon, Neon?? If you haven’t heard this early 2000′s hit I’ll link a video for you my friend! And here we go talk a little flashy business!

This was my choice to attend my sweet niece’s Bridal Shower. Erin is a bubbly beautiful girl and I wanted to match her always happy mood with a bright choice of outfit! The sun was shinning on Saturday and I felt like the colors popped even more. I kept simple yet appropriate for a nice brunch :)

Black & White with a pop of Blush

Thank goodness this outfit is still appropriate for the weather. I had taken these pics a couple weeks ago but with my lack of time they never made it on the blog even though it’s one of my faves :)

This day we had our celebratory dinner with Brian’s partner and his wife, kiddos came along and we all took great shots that I’ll proudly share with y’all!!!

But first things first, let’s talk #ootd or #ootn if you prefer!


Missoni2 missoni3 missoni4The black & white pattern makes this dress a classic, in ten years from now it will still be a beautiful piece and a great dress for any ocassion. Dress it up for night or down for day. With heels for a spiced up look or flats to tone it down a notch. Open a couple of buttons along with high knee boots and hello sexy momma, close buttons all the way and add a pair of Mary Janes and boom I’m a preppy girl….see, the options are endless truly!

When a piece is this versatile I’m all for spending a little more. This is the kind of dress my girls will inherit and probably trash it, but hopefully not! Hahaha

Studio NTK @ the Pattern Store

Busy week so far and about to get busier, gosh how many more activities can we fit in in a family life, between kids, work, time together and extra curricular activities little time is left to socialize but I was lucky enough to be able to make it to my friend Nataliya’s reveal of her collection at the Patten Store this past Wednesday. It was a small intimate get together and I was happy to see some of the familiar beautiful faces and meet new ones!

Here’s a short story in pictures of our eve at the Pattern Store at Mass Ave.

photo 1 (10)


Quick sneak peek from backstage. Nataliya chose four pieces to be highlighted on the runway. What called my attention at first was the texture of the fabric and the hardware she picked which were thick zippers some used for functionality and some as embellishment.

photo 5 (2)


This was an unusual setting, the model’s sort of lined up on the wooden stage while Natalyia went through what the piece consisted of.

photo 3 (7)


I love the western patterns on the skirts and how she always manages to add a piece of pleather on anything you wouldn’t expect!

photo 4 (4)


My favorite was the vest dress that can be worn as a vest or as a dress with leggings, shorts, mini or midi skirts, long sleeve shells, etc. The options are endless and I ended up ordering the cobalt blue one!

Here’s a “quickie” with Natalyia:

KSD-what’s the concept/inspiration of your latest collection?

Studio NTK- My collection is called Techno Freeze and is inspired by mixing soft and hard materials such as pleather and knit. The fabric is very soft and it look like a quilted fabric but is not. We wanted to have pieces that are wearable and that can transition from day to night. 

KSD-what’s next for Studio NTK?

Studio NTK- We are working on our fall winter 2015 collection as well as getting a new manufacturing facility and showroom in fountain square. 

KSD-where can we shop for this and other collections from Studio NTK?

Studio NTK- Techno  Freeze is available for purchase on our website www.studiontk.com . Also you can find it at Boomerang BTQ on Mass avenue.
Indy's BestSuch an awesome crowd (even the manequin who didn’t make in the pic…hahahahaha only the peeps in the picture will get it!)
Special thanks to Julia who put this together and to Jeremiah for hosting the show! Can’t wait for more :)
