FOOTBALL AND SHOES

I had a wonderful time attending The Giuseppe Zanotti Men’s Trunk Show at Saks Fifth Avenue at The Shops at Riverside in Hackensack, NJ. 10 percent of all purchases went to The Chris Canty Foundation. I had a chance to chat with the NFL star, check out some great kicks, and ride in an Aston Martin for Hip NJ. Dress: Rachel Roy Heels: Nine West

KARDASHIAN KOLLECTION CROP

The Kardashians continue to impress me with their Kardashian Kollection pieces. Their recent collaboration with Lipsy contains high quality fabrics, and unique and chic designs. This White String Crop Top is one of the standout pieces from their most recent collection. It sold out fairly quickly and I was lucky enough to find one on eBay in my size. I paired it with a simple and classic pencil skirt by Bar III and my favorite Rachel Zoe blazer to created a timeless, elegant look.

The LC Lauren Conrad Collection at Kohl’s is the quintessential summer line. It is pretty and fun with a touch of sophistication. I adore this crochet crop top from the line.

What I love about this line is that the pieces are so diverse and it is still very affordable. Top: Courtesy of LC Lauren Conrad at Kohl’s Skirt: Jaye.e.

SILVER LINING

H&M did a fabulous twist on a simple leather skirt. The silver color and cut give it a chic, edgy vibe. This skirt is one of my favorite recent finds. These Karl Lagerfeld sunnies were a unique find. In NJ on Route 10 there is a store called Fox’s Designer Off Price that I’ve driven by a million times, but never gave a second thought. I read an article online recently how it was a secret haven for discounted designer pieces. That article certainly did not lie. These shades were only $29.
