My Predictions for 2015

New Years resolutions

I can’t believe it’s 2015. It feels like only yesterday it was 2005 and I was about to graduate from high school. Since then I’ve graduated college, moved to New York and started a blog. Though I’m not one for resolutions, this year I’m really working toward a fatter bank account and a skinnier waist. I’m even going to start running for the first time ever.

While visiting a psychic is super fun and a great way to start a New Year, I decided to make my own predictions this year based on the trends I’ve seen and experienced as a fashion blogger in NYC. Here’s what I see trending in 2015…


Based on what I’ve seen on the runways of the last two New York Fashion Weeks, I see 2015 beauty being very polarized. While the nude no makeup look will be popular, so will intensely bold eyes with big black liners.

Other beauty trends such as negative space manicures showing some of the natural nail, metallic temporary jewelry tattoos, metallic accents/eyeshadows, faux piercings and nail art will also remain popular throughout the year. If anyone can figure out how makeup artists actually do faux piercings please let me know because it’s a total mystery to me.


Since fashions don’t change as fast as they used to, I see street styles such as skinny jeans, leggings and boots sticking around through 2015.

As for new trends, I predict that the 90s will have an even bigger influence on 2015 with the return of denim outfits, a touch of grunge and a lot more plaid. Though I’m unsure how much influence goth fashion will have on the coming year, I think it will return in some way to the fashion and/or beauty scene. The fact that the 90s is now the new retro decade really makes me feel old.

Entertainment/Pop Culture

Back to the Future Part II will resurface in 2015 as a pinnacle of pop culture. Thanks to Marty McFly’s visit to 2015 back in 1985, tons of people have their hearts set on a hoverboard. While I think someone will make the hoverboard happen, I don’t think this is the year of flying cars. Personally, I just want a DeLorean.

Game of Thrones will continue to grow in popularity in 2015 and will have influence on fashion and beauty. I predict a Game of Thrones partnership with a beauty brand this year.

Movies exploring the themes of class, government control and the shrinking middle class will become even more prominent in Hollywood.

Celebrating the New Year in Times Square – Happy 2013!!

Happy New Year Everyone!!  I’m so excited to see what 2013 has in store.  This year, I braved the crowds and craziness by ringing in 2013 in Times Square armed with my new Sony NEX-F3K/S 16.1MP Interchangeable Lens Camera that my Dad gave me for Christmas.  Expect more fab fashion photo shoots on Aspiring Socialite in 2013 thanks to my amazing new camera which I love because it’s a great mixture between an everyday point and shoot and a super fancy professional photographer’s camera.  I must say that I couldn’t have chosen a better place to take my first pictures on my new camera than celebrating the New Year in Times Square that come midnight on New Year’s Eve is even more the center of the universe.  The crowds are crazy, but having so many people around actually makes the air warmer.  Looking forward to continuing my socialite journey in NYC in 2013.  13 may not traditionally be a lucky number, but I feel tons of prosperity coming on.

Happy New Year! Love the confetti!

More confetti!

Have an amazing 2013!

2011 Happy New Year Socialites!!

The year 2011 is finally here and as an Aspiring Socialite I can’t wait to see what adventures the New Year has in store for me. In 2010, after starting this blog in February, I received personal invitations to Fashion Week, the MONET showroom, and exclusive Lord & Taylor events, but my journey to stardom has just begun. The arrival of 2011 means an entire year of new parties, fashions, and philanthropic endeavors. Will leggings stay in style or become “so last year?  I’m thinking they will be in fashion for years to come. I don’t believe in New Year’s resolutions, but it is my hope that more people will discover this blog the way thousands did in 2010 and get inspired to take charge of their lives through shameless self-promotion. So if you haven’t already, make it your 2011 New Year’s Resolution to stop eating your humble pie and go on a diet.
