MCLV Style: NYFW

I’m going to preface this post by tell you that the word “cold” doesn’t even begin to capture the essence of the temperature while I was in New York last weekend.

NYFW may have been my excuse to head back East, but my trip was really about catching up with friends. Not only has my high school best friend been a Manhattan resident for nearly a decade, a number of my fashion friends have made the move from San Francisco to New York in the past year.

It was great catching up with the crew at Style Lend and some of my favorite SF blogger babes who made the trip!

Valentine’s Day Style

My interest in Valentine’s Day extends solely to the potential wardrobe options. I’ll take any excuse to dress up! 🙂

One of the things I’ve always loved about Valentine’s Day styling is the chance to wear fun, flattering, bold hues. Fuchsia, red, purple, oxblood, Marsala… All great choices.

This year I’ll be having a fabulous Valentine’s Day dinner and girls night out in New York with a dear friend and I’ve been considering what to pack for the trip for weeks. When your date is not only beautiful, but a stylish woman who works for a fashion start-up, you’ve got to bring your A Game!

Here’s a little inspiration to get you in the mood for your evening – Whether it’s drinks with the girls, dinner at home, or a big to-do!

Fun fact – Approximately three minutes before this photograph was taken I saw Karlie Kloss walk down the street. I actually didn’t stop talking for roughly an hour after this.

What’s YOUR holiday party style?
