Hi everyone! Sorry I've been absent again from blogging this month. I've been extremely busy at work with the holidays rapidly approaching and to make it worse, I now have a bad cold that's left me on my tush for days. Before I got sick though, I had been attending several of my friend's ugly christmas sweater holiday soirees and graduation parties! I had so much fun at each party and there were several different food and beverage options available at each. However, I found these photos of a s'more and hot chocolate bar and thought that these would be such a fun party 'dish' around this time of year at any party!

Bill Cunningham from the New York Times has been around for ages and is such an icon in NYC for many reasons, including his weekly 'On The Street' articles, which captures the most stylish women of the week. A recent document that's a must-see, "Bill Cunningham New York" follows Bill as he pedals through the streets of New York City capturing glamorous garments and trends of the most recognizable rich and famous as well as nameless individuals. Throughout the film, Bill carries himself with an infectious smile, endearing attitude and establishes relationships with several of the most important and wealthiest women in NYC, whom trust Bill with his impeccable eye for photography, art and fashion. At the beginning of the film, Anna Wintour said it best, "We all get dressed for Bill."

Late last evening, I got a chance of a lifetime to meet one of my biggest style icons, Whitney Port! I had heard about her anticipated arrival for several weeks and knew that I was scheduled to work a special event that night at Nordstrom and miss out on listening to her talk about her 'Quarter Life Crisis'. However, with luck, I found my schedule clearing up right around 8 o'clock, which was when she was scheduled to speak. Luck, perfection, karma...I'm not sure which but all I knew was that I had to go and once again, with luck on my side, I even got to meet her! She was so insightful and her ambition, career goals and advice were honest as well as motivating! I have to say that she was exactly who I though she would be and more!
She truly is Whit!

I finally got a chance this week to catch up with a friend at a delicious spot in Arcadia, Postino Winecafe! I've always adored this area of Phoenix, but with one of the most popular restaurants nearby, it's quickly become my favorite place to go for amazing and delicious Italian food! We ordered a bottle of their Sauvignon Blanc along with a board of bruschetta, which included, Brie & Apples with Fig Spread as well as Fresh Mozzarella with Tomato & Basil! We also split a prosciutto with brie panini with a freshly made romaine salad for our side. Talk about delish! If you're ever in the area, I highly recommend trying Postino Winecafe!

Fall weather makes me want to bring out the boots and the scarves as well as the dark and sparkly nail polish! I'm constantly changing my polish every several days, so now that my wardrobe is changing, so are my nails! Below are several of my favorite colors to wear for fall!

Here's a new spin on the classic trench coat that's a must for unpredictable and rainy weather in places such as New York, London and Seattle. Whether it's a cinched bow or a classic A-line, there's always a way to show your sense of style in a practical and original way.

Around this time of year, I practically live in tunics, leggings and most importantly, chunky scarves! They're the best accessory and most practical to wear during cold weather! My latest obsession are infinity scarves because they're a quick and easy wrap around my neck and I don't have to fuss with it!
