I put up a Q&A box on Instagram, but since some questions are better answered in a longer format I thought I would tackle them here! I get quite a few of the same questions I have answered in the past – so linking to those below before diving into newer questions from this week.
You can also see older Q&A posts here, here, and here!
How do you achieve your low bun hair? See my tutorial here.
What is your daily make-up routine? See it here.
How did you start blogging? Read about it here.
How and when did you get into the fashion industry? You can read all about that here.
Q: Three beauty products you cannot live without?
A: This face cream, this eyeliner and this stay all day lipstick.
Q: Are you back in NYC permanently? How much time do you spend there?
A: This question came up a lot understandably. We are full time in Florida but try to spend 2-3 months of the year in NYC. We keep toying with the idea of coming back but haven’t made any decisions quite yet. There are so many things I do love about Florida – the space, the ease, the pace of life, the winter weather! On the other hand there are so many things I miss about NYC – the energy, the endless restaurants, unique stores, and museums and of course my friends. Hopefully we will find a balance that works for us!
Q: What are your favorite sunglasses to wear?
A: This will be an ever evolving answer but right now I would have to say my Linda Farrow Dunaway sunglasses. You can see my full list of everyday favorites here!
Q: Great under $500 work bag?
A: Okay my commuter/work bag for many years has been this tote. It has a secure zip top, it is extremely durable, fits my laptop plus everything else I need, has multiple ways to wear and I don’t feel bad about putting it on the ground. However that bag is quite casual, so if you are in an environment in which you need a bag to be functional as well as polished enough to wear to a meeting I would probably opt for this bag. It is sturdy, has a generous shoulder drop, multiple compartments, fits a laptop and has a secure center zip!
Q: Did you start this page for fun?
A: I did!! I started this site way back in the beginning of 2010 and didn’t see this as an avenue to start a business, but the industry evolved and here we are!
Q: You favorite basics?
A: I talk a lot about that here, here and here. Overall my favorite everyday jeans are these, favorite tanks are this one and this one and my current favorite sweater is this one.
Q: Coats you are eyeing for fall?
A: So you know I am a coat collector!! I have been eyeing this one and this one. They are both major investment pieces so I am not committing to them quite yet. You can follow along here to see all my fall/winter favorites as I find them.
Q: Wedding guest dress suggestions please?!
A: I love this one paired with some statement earrings for an end of summer wedding, this dress for a black tie affair, and this one that is going fast (I just wore it this past weekend to an event)!
