Happy Easter Socialites! It’s been a beautiful spring weekend in New York City. I throughly enjoyed walking across town on Saturday in the newly emerged sunshine. After seeing the Empire State Building lit up like an Easter egg all weekend with pretty pastels for spring, I was inspired to curate my favorite pastel spring fashions.
Whether you’re single or taken, Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to celebrate your love of fashion, pink hearts, and radiant red lipstick. It’s also a great time of year to either get sent or send yourself a lovely bouquet of flowers. That is of course if you even remember it’s Valentine’s Day in between viewing the latest Fall Collections at New York Fashion Week which runs from Feb. 7th-14th. So before I get caught up in the glamour of viewing the next fall season at Lincoln Center, I’m putting together an amazing lists of Valentine’s Day gifts for every budget without the typical corniness that tends to follow this holiday. So treat yourself or a friend to some Valentine’s Day fabulosity. Or if you’re super subtile, send your significant other a link to this post.

Though I don’t believe in fox hunts or ever wearing actual fur, I’m kind of loving all of the fox motifs I’ve been seeing in fashion lately. It all started with British designers such as Burberry and Alice Temperley adding foxes into their designs and recently it seems to have trickled over into the showrooms of American designers such as Tory Burch. No matter who is designing your foxy wears, there’s nothing like a little fox print to have you feeling sly and distinctive. Here are some of my favorite foxy fashions:
1. Tory Burch Fox Stud Double Wrap Bracelet: Wrap bracelets are always adorable, especially when stacked with a statement gold watch. Stacked jewelry is all the rage right now and a great way to dress up a casual outfit.
4. Dorothy Perkins Oatmeal Fox Jumper: Though this does kind of remind me of something Rachel Berry from Glee would have worn during her high school years, I kind of like it and if a diva like her can pull it off, than so can I.
5. C. Wonder Fox Stud Earrings: C. Wonder has by far the best accessories on the market. If you’re looking for holiday stocking stuffers, this is the place to go. Like everything else in the store, I want these earrings.
Having never experienced a natural disaster of such magnitude, the New York area is still feeling the devastating effects of Hurricane Sandy. The Tory Burch Foundation has joined forces with the Council of Fashion Designers of America and Vogue for Fashion for Sandy Relief. In honor of the relief effort, the foundation has expanded its previously scheduled private sale to include the American and international fashion communities. Participating brands include Tory Burch, Carolina Herrera, Theory, J.Crew, Diane von Furstenberg, Valentino and Marc Jacobs, among others. 100% of net proceeds will benefit the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City and the Tri-State Area.
So happy to see the fashion community coming together for such a great cause. If you’re in the New York area be sure to stop by the Metropolitan Pavilion for some couture charity.
