The Cherry On Top

This past week I helped open Free People’s newest location on West Broadway in Lower Manhattan. We spent two weeks putting together everything and filling up what was a completely empty space. The building was one of the very first art galleries in Soho, and the company has preserved a lot of the art deco trim, ceiling panels, and pillars throughout. It is a beautiful space. It was a pretty strenuous haul, but it was incredibly rewarding at the end! I treated myself for all of my hard work with this adorable cherry top. If you love belle sleeves and this fruity print as much as I do, click here to purchase.

Top 3 Instagram Feed Planning Apps

In light of the new VSCO update, I wanted to share with you all the best apps that help give users a visual of their Instagram grids. I know a lot of people have used VSCOcam, as most use the provided filters in the app, so it’s quite effortless to play around in the grid and get an orientation of your liking. I, personally, was bothered by the black background and inability to “drag and drop”, so I started researching alternatives months ago.

Silver Lady + UNOde50 Event

IMG_1415If you saw my last post, you likely noticed the amazing jewelry I featured. I wanted to get something on the blog to promote how much I love UNOde50!

When you take a look at their collection, you’ll likely believe it comes with a heavier price tag. To my surprise, the quality screams luxury brand, but the cost per item is incredibly reasonable for something that will last you years, if not a lifetime.

I had so much fun at Lenox Square hosting their first ever blogger event. The Lenox location opened less than two months ago, and it oozed a brand stinkin’ new vibe that was absolutely captivating. We saw all kinds of shoppers that day, ranging from men to women, and younger students looking for gifts. A lot of customers were traveling from overseas, and had already visited Uno at their home base in Spain.
