Cozy Red Coat

Hey Loves! 

Every time I wear this red coat, I always think of Pretty Little Liars. Which if you don't watch it, you have NO idea what I'm talking about. Let me give you a little synopsis- there's a bunch of girls trying to find this person who is messing with them and during the first few seasons, there's someone always in a red coat. Hence the Pretty Little Liars reference. I mean, there's a lot more to their story line but that's about it when it comes to the whole red coat thing. 

Moving on...........

I spent the weekend doing what I do best and that's shopping. I found these old Converse in my Mom's house the other day and they have been my choice of shoe the past couple of Sundays. You probably won't ever see me in a pair of sweats doing errands- but you might find me in a pair of cute leggings! Check out my latest look! 

Coat: Guess/ Leggings: Strawberry/ Scarf & Hat: Mandee/ Sneakers: Converse/ Bag: H&M/ Sunglasses: Ray Ban

I'm all about the comfy look but I STILL try to stay "stylish"- ya know? My kicks, kicked it up a notch! More coming soon loves! Until next time.........

All You Need Is The Right Coat

 Hey Loves! 

Dare I say it? I think I will- I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS COAT! Ok, let me start by giving you a little backstory on my obsession with coats. I may or may not have already stated this on TFBJ, but since a bunch of seasons have past- I will tell my story. Think "Confessions of a Coat Hoarder". Every winter I end up buying at least two new or thrifted coats. It's so important for me to have a few different coats to rotate. I know. it's totally strange. Some people collect stamps, I collect coats during the winter.

Moving on..............

I commute everyday to work (and most places) by public transportation. I put a lot of thought into my outfits and since I can't walk around coatless in nine degree weather (swear, that temperature actually happened), I resort to wearing coats with personality. Do you need five coats with personality like myself? Of course NOT. You have to do what works for you! My wonderful boyfriend picked out this Calvin Klein coat this past Christmas for me AND I have to say it again, I LOVE IT! Since I live in NYC, my coats have to not only be fashionable but also have function to it. What I love most about this cozy wool coat is that the sweater sleeves are removable. That will give the coat a whole new look.

Check out how I styled this amazing coat! 

Coat: Calvin Klein/ Sweater: Target/ Jeans: YMI/ Socks: Target/ Boots: Sam Edelman/ Necklace: Ricky's NYC/ Lips: Nars

So basically, all you need is the right coat. Diversity in a piece is always a win too. So when shopping for a coat, ask yourself "how many things can I wear this coat with?, Will it go with boots OR sneakers? Will it add that flare I am looking for?". Think before you splurge and splurge on it, if it makes sense! 

Until next time....................

Forever In Blue Jeans | Style Post

Hey Loves!

Happy New Year! It's been a few weeks but I had to get through the holidays and get ready to go back to work. NOW, that I am back into the flow of things i'm ready to blog up a storm. Ok, maybe not a storm but a little rain shower instead. I'm starting off this year with a new style post (kind of the way I ended the year). I had to wake up early on a Saturday- I know, sad right? I had an event to attend and honestly didn't know what to wear. It was pretty cold out today, so I decided to do some major layering.

Layering is always fun and obviously it's a good idea when it's freezing out. I grabbed my heavy duty denim shirt and threw it over this awesome sweater from Old Navy, which I might add was on major sale! Check out today's look!

Denim Shirt: H&M/ Sweater: Old Navy/ Jeans: Express/ Shoes: Old Navy/ Jewerly: All from various stores. 

Whenever I don't know what to wear to an event, I always lean more towards casual but with a great pair of shoes. Any outfit can be pull together with a magnificent pair of shoes. It really can make a difference! I am obsessed with booties, so it was a clear choice when I saw these babies in the store. More to come, so stay tuned! Until next time.....................................

Out Of The Blue | Style Post


Hey Loves!

At first I was excited to share this style post but then, I realized it will be my last style related post for 2014! I have shared so many different looks with you guys this year. Just like every year, I feel that I get to know my style a little better. I truly think my approach to fashion and trends will always evolve and I am totally ok with that. As a person, I change everyday so OBVIOUSLY my style will too.

This week I am mixing a little vintage and some major fun detail. The purse that I am wearing today was kind of (sort of) stolen from my mother's closet. I remember being a little girl and admiring this simple purse hanging from her shoulder. When I was over her house the other day, I snagged it. Back in the day, these long strapped purses were so in (just google Chrissy in Three's Company). Today, we normally use them as a crossbody bag. To keep it real, I wore it the way my Mom did. 

Check out my look! 

Sweater: TJ MAXX/ Jeans: Express/ Boots: Sam & Libby/ Socks: Target/ Rings: Alex & Ani/ Necklace: 9th & Elm & Old Navy/ Lipstick: Ofra Cosmetics/ Hair: Using the KISS Insta Wave to make my waves 

I have to be honest, my FAVORITE part of this outfit is the sweater. I love the button detail in the back. It's such a simple sweater but the details are what makes it! I hope you all have FAB end of the year. I will be spending my New Years Eve the same way I do, every year- with my family. I wish you all the best for 2015 and I THANK you so much for the support. TFBJ will be turning 3 in a few weeks! Stay tuned for so much more fashion and beauty!

Until next time..................................

All Dressed And Ready To Go | Style Post

Hey Loves! 

I use to wear dresses or skirts to work all the time and I'm not sure why I stopped but I did. I work with kids so maybe all the sitting on the floor had something to do with it? Not sure BUT I did have the bright idea to wear a dress today. My Aunt actually gifted me this cute gray quilted dress the other day. Actually, now that I think of it- it wasn't REALLY a gift. She claimed she bought it for herself but it ended up being too short. Lucky for me, I'm short. I saw it hanging in my closet last night and thought today would be the perfect day to wear it. I mean, it was about 50 degrees in NYC today. What better day? 

Moving on..............

Since the dress was short sleeved, I paired it with my favorite crop sweater from Express and some opaque tights. I knew it was a long time since I wore a dress because I got so many compliments. (Thanks co-workers). 

Check out today's look.

Coat: Sam Edelman/ Dress: Gift/ Sweater: Express/ Stockings: Express/ Bag: Zara Necklace: Baublebar

Even though i'm in a dress, I was actually totally comfortable today. I wanted to get in at least one style post before the holidays and I thought this outfit was perfect! I love adding sweaters over my dresses because it really does change the look of the dress. I can wear this dress again, differently by adding an open front cardigan!  On a side note: details on my Reindeer Nails will be up soon! 

Until next time......................

Billion Dollar Brows Best Sellers Kit | Review

Hey Loves!

We all know what the most important thing on our face is and if you don't, I will gladly tell you. It's your BROWS. There are a plethora of different (HILARIOUS) pictures of people with messed up brows floating around the internet. Just google "funny eyebrow pictures" and it will prove my point.

Moving on.........

I have been using the same brow product for about a year now. The other day I finally ran out of it and that was perfect timing to try out the Billion Dollar Brows Best Sellers Kit. This kit is exclusively for Kohls and It comes with EVERYTHING you would need to hook up your brows!

I normally would have to buy all these things separately, so it's nice to find a reasonably priced kit with everything!


  • Universal Brow Pencil: Which is made to use with all skin tones and hair colors and comes with a spoolie on the other end.
  • Brow Duo Pencil: This brow duo pencil is 1/2 Highlighter and 1/2 Concealer
  • Smudge Brush: This brush is used to blend the pencil. (I used it to blend the concealer)
  • Brow Gel: Lightweight and non-flaking gel

The first day I used it, I was totally impressed. The kit states that it can be used with "any skin tone or hair type" and since I have pretty dark brows, I wasn't sure it was going to work. It worked perfectly and blends so nicely. My normal brow routine consisted of brow pencil then brow gel- The Billion Dollar Brows brow pencil has a little bit of a waxy consistency so I really didn't need the gel! As you can see in the picture below, my eyebrows look totally natural.

I added the gel (even though I really didn't need it) and it kept everything in place- Just the way I like it. The kit retails for $34.99 which is a $68 VALUE! You can find this kit plus more here. The holidays is RIGHT around the corner and this would be the perfect stocking stuffer for your beauty obsessed lady! 

Until next time...............

But The Snow's Just SO Delightful | Style Post

Hey Loves! 

Every year I go Upstate for Thanksgiving to spend it with the boyfriend and his family.  It's always a great time and I always leave SO full. It's bittersweet. This year wasn't any different- EXCEPT, we were graced with SNOW! It doesn't matter how many times I see snow covered trees, without failing- I am amazed. Sometimes the hustle of NYC gets me down BUT then, there's snow covered grounds that make me love that I live in a state where all the seasons are experienced.  

Moving on..........

I kept my look simple but festive. When I bought this dress, it reminded me of Cher Horowitz from the movie "Clueless". I mean, minus the overly tightness. I added my newest faux fur vest to add some texture and warmth. See, I'm practical when getting dressed!

Check out my LOOK! 

Dress: Polly & Esther/ Vest: Miss London/ Stockings: Strawberrys/ Necklace: Mandee/ 
Boots: Express/
Bracelet: Little Black Bag/ Ring: H&M/ Lipstick: MAC "Living Legend" + Burgundy Lipliner/ Eyes; Urban Decay Naked Palette

The outfit went well together and adding a colorful pair of stockings gave it that EXTRA boost! Comfy, cozy and chic! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend! Be back soon with more goodies! Until next time........
