Lazy Day Sunday

Sundays are meant for sleeping in, brunching, girl chat and shopping. This Sunday I plan on grabbing brunch at Bubby's in Tribeca for some delicious pancakes, reading the NY Times and thrifting in the village. In addition to my lazy day Sunday, I also plan on checking out Ebay for some great finds to add to my wardrobe. I've had my eye on a Phillip Lim cardigan and a pair of Michael Kors boots for the past week now. Hopefully with the listing ending tonight, I can officially call the goods mine. Be sure to check out AllocationsNYC  for your Ebay finds this Sunday. Happy shopping on this Sunday:)

Iris Apfel

"If your hair is done properly and you have good shoes on, you can get away with anything", so are the words of Iris Apfel. Mrs. Apfel is a fashion icon, and being so, has been celebrated by the Met, FIT, and Mac cosmetics. She has and always will be an original by all standards. As the week comes to a close, I wanted to join in the praises of Iris Apfel. Getting ready this Friday night for the night out I put together my outfit Iris Apfel style; with lots of flair, lots of style and lots of jewelry.

How to Be Parisian

How to Be Parisian? The book, written by the ever so chic Caroline de Maigret found its way into every home of every fashionista. The book defines what it means to have that Parisian cool and sense of style. While I have never been a Francophile, I still yearn for the lightness of the Parisian girls. The ones you see in the thirft stores in the East Village, perusing the Balmain and Chloe while carelessly wearing their mother's Chanel handbags. Anyway, the closest I get to being Parisian is wearing Parsian brands. This week on Allocations.NYC, we are listing the goods of Isabel Marant, Chloe, and Iro. So while your next trip to the city of lights may not be for another few years, you can at least channel the style and chicness that makes Paris what it is.

The Little Black Dress. This one piece that does wonders to your figure, to your wardrobe and to your confidence. No matter where you are going, what you are doing or what type of even it may be, the LBD is the answer to all the ultimate questions: "What should I wear". This week on AllocationsNYC, the LBD is being celebrated by offering you several options on this classic silhouette. Choose a fit'n'flare, skater or fitted silhouette. You can't go wrong! 

Fringe is In

In honor of NYFW, I wanted to celebrate the return of fringe. Fringe is in, and I am ready to embrace this wonderful trend and pay homage to the designers who so happily brought back these swinging details to the runway. Yes, we can thank YSL, Gucci and Ralph Lauren as pioneers of fringe and send them our gratuity as we don this fun look. However, I would like to take it back to Fall 2010, when Blumarine took to the runway with the fringe look and won over the hearts of all women. Fortunately, not only is fringe great for the spring, but there are many pieces to choose from. I personally am embracing this Blumarine Leather Jacket with fringe ( on sale now at AllocationsNYC). As wrote on the Blumarine collection. "It's for the kind of girl a man wants to follow in the street". If that isn't saying something for the girls of New York City, I am not sure what will.

Tight Kicks

Tight kicks are my jam. I love a fashionable sneaker that works with a Chanel bag and a Uniqlo puffer. Nothing says city cool than a pair of awesome sneakers. Its no wonder Isabel Marant brought back the wedge sneaker some odd years ago. Its stylish comfort, which is more than I can say for a pair of heeled boots in this ridiculously cold weather. On AllocationsNYC listed is a pair of awesome Pierre Balmain Lexis sneakers. Ya know, the ones rocked by Rihanna and endorsed by Mr. West ( all opionis of Kanye aside, these are awesome kicks). If the Balmain sneakers are a bit too glam for you in all their black patent glory, check out the New Nike Premium Rose Gold Mid Blazers. On sale at Barneys right now! Don't worry, they are sold out there, but you can grab them on the ebay Store. It's just a click away!
