My Dream Closet

I feel so lucky for two reasons right now, one: for finding the AMAZING Aly Finkelstein of OrganizedbyAly and two: my wonderful photographer who was able to capture this work of art! Once I met Aly, I knew she meant business. She immediately walked in started measuring and knew exactly what was going to be done. She ran off to Container Store and my mom and I just looked at each other as if we found our soul mate. Not only did she completely take care of everything from organizing, decorating and finding the perfect handyman to install everything – but she was a great friend through the stressful time of moving. Her services changed my life!

The light that pours into my office is out of a dream and my lovely photographer Alexandra knew exactly how to capture it’s essence.

I’ve honestly never seen all of my sunglasses, with the way Aly organized everything, I am now able to see every thing I have and I feel like my outfits are that much stronger because of it.

My friend Ania color coordinated pretty much everything and then did some merchandising for the sweaters.

Do you see what Aly did? I honestly don’t think this is normal! Everything is so perfectly organized and my shoe wall is back again! YAY!

This AMAZING chandelier is from, I’ve never had an apartment of my own with chandeliers, I seriously feel like a grown up. Wayfair has been a lifesaver, they have everything you could ever imagine at amazing prices and I’m finding everything I need to decorate my apartment from there.

Skirt: IRO | Tank: Everlane | Vest: Kenneth Cole | Shoes: Kenneth Cole | Sunnies: Wildfox | Bag: Reece Hudson | Lips: MAC (Vivid Red)

Fashion week is quickly approaching and I’m still just getting settled into my new apartment. Fall pieces are starting to come out of hibernation in the closet and I figured it’s an appropriate time to show off some pieces for Fall that could also be worn now. This vest and shoes are both from Kenneth Cole and they are definitely pieces I plan to wear one day to Fashion Week. BTW, it’s my last fashion week as a non married woman, pretty crazy. I can never really tell how I feel about Fashion week, once all the e-mails start swarming in I get a little overwhelmed and dreading the fact that I need to somehow organize this but at the same time, outfit ideas fill up in my head and I get that rush again. So, that’s what happened and that’s what led to shooting this first look. I paired one of my favorite skirts of the summer with a pony haired vest and a new pair of shoes. I added a red lip for pop of color because for me, that’s considered a lot of makeup. I think a bold lip with a fresh face is a really pretty look, especially at the end of summer with a tan.

Off to work – SOREL

I had the best time working withΒ TRESemmΓ© last night re creating all of the best beauty and hair looks from the VMAs red carpet. Check here to see all the looks we recreated My favorite was teased pony tail, I loved how glamorous it was but also cool at the same time. I went into it knowing that at the MTV VMA’s, celebrities usually use this opportunity to step out of the box and try out funky hair styles. It made our day of styling that much more fun. For the girl who constantly wears her hair down, theΒ TRESemmΓ© stylists walked me through step by steps of what they were doing so that it was something I’d be able to recreate at home on my own. I learned all about contouring which completely changed my life! Which of these looks were your favorite? The braid or the ponytail? #AmpUpYourStyle

Jumpsuit: Daily Look | Shoes: Christian Dior | Sunnies: Ultimate Spectacle (in orange)

It’s crazy to see these pictures now after officially moving in. This room is far from empty and the shoes are neatly stacked where they belong. I will definitely be doing a full closet post this week once everything is good to go. It’s a dream, I never in a million years thought I would have a room dedicated to my wardrobe and work space. I was so lucky to find the amazing OrganizedbyAly who changed my whole life. She put my life in order and helped me with my entire move. I don’t know what I would have done without her services. A full post on that to come.

This look is one of my favorite jumpsuits from DailyLook. It fits like a glove and is perfect for the end of Summer into Fall because of the light material. My mom styled me here haha, she was helping me unpack and really wanted me to wear my hot pink shoes and while she was organizing my sunglasses, loved the idea of the hot pink sunnies from Ultimate Spectacle.
