Day One NYC

Hi everyone! I’m getting ready to take off on my trip to NYC. I got my spray tan going and everything. I know you’ll laugh, but I’ve never gotten a spray tan before. I’ve tanned with the Clinique self tanner, but never went for the real thing. It was quite an experience… 🙂 It’s a little darker than I thought. I wore this outfit on the plane.

Hanging in NYC

Planning my outfits for my trip to NYC. I plan on wearing this one evening, probably the night we go see a show. While I love color, sometimes some neutrals are nice. I’ll probably do a darker eye or lips for this outfit so I don’t look washed out.

Breaking Out the White Jeans

Well, it’s official, we had no winter. It was almost 90 degrees yesterday. We went out for sushi last night and I wore my white jeans.

Magpie Styling Tip: White jeans can be hard to wear. If they’re the slightest bit tight in the thighs, they don’t look good. I find that if I order a size up, then have them altered to fit, they look best.

Lady Like Chic

I love how this outfit turned out–shades of grey and navy. I feel very ladylike.

Magpie Styling Tip: By adding a belt over the cardigan, I gave myself a defined waist and made the outfit more polished looking. A structured bag works perfectly for a work outfit.

Hi everyone! Next week I’ll be attending the Inaugural Kick Off Celebration for AliveAndKickn, a non-profit set up by my good friends Dave and Robin Dubin. Dave was diagnosed (for the first time) with colon cancer at age 29, read his inspiring story here. If you’re in the New Jersey/NYC area and can come out to support the cause, please do!

When: Thursday, March 29 from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Where: Mi Bandera Restaurant, 518 32nd Street, Union City, NJ 07087
More info: AliveAndKickn

Here’s what I’ll be wearing. I overexposed this picture, so the color is off. The dress is a pretty crimson. I’m still debating about accessories. Should I go with a necklace and get rid of one cuff? I hope to do a little fake tanning as well! I’ll take pictures at the actual event to share!

Dress: Madison Marcus via Zou Zou Boutique
Bracelets: Gunmetal cuff, Amrita Singh; leather from TJ Maxx
Shoes: Michael Kors (on sale right now!)

Vote Now: Marni Dress

I tried my hand at a fall/winter styling of the Marni dress. I used the magazine photo as inspiration. I liked the leather jacket better than the feather vest. What do you think?

Which styling do you like best?

While they’re not always the most flattering, I love a loose tank over a pair of skinny jeans, it just says casual cool to me.
