I have been on the hunt for the new business cards and personalized stationery. Low and behold, I was recently introduced to Basic Invite, an online custom invitation company, is now offering an array of personalized business cards and stationery. Basic Invite offers an array of designs no matter what your style or profession may be. My personal favorite are the chic foil embossed business cards. Foil cards are available in gold, silver and rose gold (!!). You can choose flat or raised foil on all of Basic Invite’s foil designs.
Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows you the ability to order a printed sample of your actual product. so you can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before you ever have to place their final order.
Another great feature of Basic Invite is that they are just as colorful with their envelopes as they are with their stationery. You can choose from over 40 different colors when it comes to your envelopes so that you can make your note stand out before it is even opened. All of their envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed.
There’s no second-guessing that Basic Invite is the best site for business cards. Right now Basic Invite is offering 15% off with coupon code: 15FF51.
I will be ordering my business cards and personalized stationery this weekend. Style tip: I learned that in Europe they only print their name on business cards, that’s it. Then depending on whom they meet and the relationship with that person they write down their phone number, email, etc. I absolutely love this idea! If you only want someone to have your email and not your phone number you simply just write your email address. Brilliant, isn’t it?
Back in the day wearing white after Labor Day was considered a fashion faux pas. Pfft, not anymore. I made the case for monochromatic dressing not too long ago. Now hear me out – embrace winter whites!
Winter whites are not the stark whites you find in the spring and summer months. A winter white hue has a “warmer” tone to it. I love the look of winter whites. It’s a cozy look, don’t you think? Not to mention an easy look to pull off during those seemingly long winter months.
If you haven’t heard all ready the iconic Henri Bendel flagship store located on Fifth Avenue is closing at the end of the month. I paid one last visit to Bendel’s before the doors close. It has been interesting watching Bendel’s evolve over the past fourteen years that I have been living in New York City.
If you are not familiar with Henri Bendel’s this article from The New York Times will give you a good idea of the legacy. My first experience of Bendel’s over a decade ago was magnificent! The sprawling four levels filled with the most decadent clothing, accessories, beauty, travel and home goods.
Any Gossip Girl fans out there? The first season Elenor Waldorf (Blair’s mother) mentions that Bendel’s has picked up her spring collection. Ahh, the good old days.
There was even a chic cafe on the top level that overlooked Fifth Avenue. I remember taking myself on my birthday one year and feeling very glamorous.
Over the years, especially after the recession in 2008 I noticed a decline in Bendel’s. They stopped selling clothing and scaled back a lot on merchandise. Slowly they started closing the top floors of their NYC flagship (the chic cafe was the first to go – *sigh*).
Bendel’s would soon announce they were only focusing on accessories such as handbags, wallets, jewelry, etc. That being said, it came as no surprise when they announced they would be closing for good at the end of January.
That’s right everything is currently 60% off – if not more. If you are in or plan on visiting NYC before the end of the month be sure to stop by Henri Bendel at 712 Fifth Avenue (between 56th and 57th Street).
The start of the winter season has me craving easy, comfortable layers while looking put together. Let’s embrace monochromatic dressing, shall we? I find there is something sophisticated and bold about dressing head-to-toe in one color. Talk about commitment.
A bonus about approaching this way of dressing is that it’s mindless/effortless. Get up in the morning, pick a color and then find the coordinating pieces in your closet. Viola!
Being the New Yorker that I am I will be embracing neutral tones such as black and grey. I also love the idea of toying with a bold color, like red. We shall see…
We all know Adidas Stan Smiths were having a moment not too long along, and perhaps they are the ones who kicked off the need for fashionable sneakers. Fast forward to today and the options for fashion sneakers are endless, not only in price point but also in the way you can style your look with sneakers.
People assume New Yorkers live in high-heels and stilettos like an episode of Sex and The City – and that couldn’t be further from the truth. Most of the time New Yorkers are wearing a flat shoe or boot to get around the city efficiently. We have places to be and people to see!
I am embracing the fashion sneaker look all year round. My suggestion is to choose a pair (or two) that is in line with your personal style. Whether it’s a neutral pair with embellishments or a bright fun color you can mix up with several outfits, have fun with it.
I feel like podiatrists everywhere are rejoicing over this fashion trend as well. Haha!
It’s heerrrrrreee! Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale. I meticulously went through everything and put together the best finds. Why? Because I love you. Get an early start on fall wardrobe shopping and shop my top picks.
Summer travel is in full swing and I have come to the conclusion that I always over pack. After spending a week and half in New England I realized I only wore a fraction of what I brought. During my trips back home 95% of the time I am in a bathing suit at the beach. Or if I’m not at the beach I prefer the comforts of breezy summer basics. LESSON LEARNED. Cue in the kimono…
I was first introduced to the Hatch Collection when I came across a pair of linen-blend pants on Net-a-Porter. HATCH is actually a line designed for during and after pregnancy. It can also be worn by those not expecting (like me!). I admit I was a bit hesitant to order the pants when I found out this was a maternity line. However, the collection is well-designed and doesn’t scream “maternity”. Plus, The pants are super comfortable. Now this is a maternity line you will get your money’s worth since the silhouettes can be worn well after the baby is born.
Fast forward a few months later and HATCH opened up their first retail location in New York City. I paid a visit to the store – and loved everything! Their easy, breezy dresses and jumpsuits are right up my alley. I also stumbled across their line of natural beauty products called HATCH MAMA.
Expect to experience a great shopping experience when visiting Hatch’s flagship downtown at 17 Bleecker Street. Every detail did not go unnoticed. HATCH knows it’s customer and gives them the five-star treatment. You can even expect to find a candy ‘cravings bar’ downstairs and yummy organic snack at the checkout counter.

If you asked me what this season’s key accessory item is I would say it’s a summer straw bag. A straw bag adds texture and an effortless look to your summer ensembles. The options are endless. I love the new look of the Straw Circle Tote for summer day trips and a fun Straw Clutch for summer cocktail parties.

It’s officially feels like summer! I decided this summer I’m giving myself a bucket list. There is always so much I want to do and see during the fleeting summer months. I figured if I wrote it down and shared it this will help hold me accountable. Right?
