Gaga's Workshop @ Barney's NY

Lady Gaga teamed up with Barney's NY to create what is now "Gaga's Workshop!" The "workshop" is a whole floor at  Barney's styled and merchandised by Gaga herself and her team of creatives. Opening night was on Monday at 12:00am! Shoppers of course, lined up since early Sunday evening to catch a peek at the Chanel Couture-clad popstar! Unfortunately, I've been a little under the weather so I could not make it to the opening but I definitely plan on getting in there and getting some shots and an insider scoop for you guys! In the meantime here are some photos from WWD.com of the ribbon cutting ceremony & Gaga's Workshop itself..

 ...as well as the footprints Gaga is leaving around the City!

Shopping Success

This morning, the Versace for H&M Collection hit stores in the U.S. 
Around 7am I sprung out of bed to shop this highly coveted designer collaboration.  After more than THREE HOURS of anxious anticipation, I brought home some of my favorite pieces.  Everything was sold out by noon! While waking up early on a Saturday was tough, it was so worth it
Still basking in my post-shopping bliss...

It was my grandfather's birthday on Tuesday so we had a casual little party for him. Being an early evening event, I had just enough time to run home after work and throw on a more festive top, some heels and poppin' lipcolor to turn a work outfit into a fuunnnn outfit! This is what I wore..

 vintage (slash/I bought it in high school, it has no label, and 'vintage' sounds nicer than 'old') top,  BCBG high-waisted trousers, H&M rosette clutch, MICHAEL by Michael Kors "Sophia Maryjane" leopard-print heels, MAC 'impassioned' lipstick

Sparkly Shoe Bliss

So, this is me right now. Just laying down with sparkly shoes on my mind -- ahhh.. I love it!!  I would say that this is a bit of a digression from my usual heel of choice but for soooome reason I am gravitating towards this trend. I can't help it!! For the last two days, alllll I can think about is how celestial and cool some glittery, Oz-meets-Gaga, silver pumps would look with the right ensemble.  Hopefully, I'll find "the ones" sooner than later and then you'll know what I'm talking about!! In the meantime I'm still browsing..what do you think of these??

JCrew President (one of my favorite fashionistas), Jenna  Lyons, is apparently as talented at decorating as she is at dressing! The black-walled bedroom/bathroom in this Park Slope home has lingered in my mind since I first spotted it while searching for black-wall inspiration (yes, black-wall inspiration) in Elle Decor.  At the time, I hadn't realized that this incredible bedroom belonged to one of my favorite fashion icons...although, I'm not completely surprised.  Anyways, enjoy the photos (they obviously aren't mine, they are from fashionologie)! I hope you like them as much as I do! And PS...the closet is my favorite part but you'll have to scroll all the way to the bottom, I saved the best for last. Oh and, PPS...there is more to this story, but this isn't a gossip site ;) So, if you really want to know you'll need to find it elsewhere
