Sponsored Post: Macy’s Next Style Star

Comments Off

Macy’s has teamed up with Maker Studios to create a new fashion series, The Next Style Star. 16 up-and-coming stylists compete for the chance to win a grand prize of $10,000, serve as a guest stylist on an exciting Macy’s photo shoot, and see his or her winning outfit featured in the Impulse department at the famed Macy’s Herald Square location!

The Next Style Star is hosted by fashion expert Jeannie Mai — she’s one of my favorites — and an A-list roster of guest judges that includes reality star/designer Whitney Port, MADE Fashion Week founder Jenne Lombardo, and more.

Stylists are asked to create stylish and on-trend looks, for each challenge, using Macy’s Impulse brands such as Lucky Brand, Maison Jules, Sanctuary, RACHEL Rachel Roy, Guess, Bar III, Joe’s Jeans, Kensie and MADE Fashion Week for Impulse.

And, guess what?! – The Next Style Star has already begun! The series premiered on April 3rd. Visit The Platform or macys.com/stylestar to watch each episode and learn more about The Next Style Star.

Sponsored Post: Celebrate Spring with a ‘Wink of Pink’

Comments Off

Spring is literally right around the corner! Here in New York, we can’t wait for the warm weather to arrive. For most fashionistas in the US, spring is so much more than a change of season. Spring means there will be more color options available at your favorite boutiques and stores, as well as a great time to switch up your wardrobe and home decor. This spring, pink is the color on everyone’s lips: Add bright pink, fuchsia, magenta and more to your home and wardrobe. Kohl’s has gathered a collection of pink items for women, men, kids and home — add these pretty and playful hues to your day or stock up on gifts for someone you love.

I started my “spring cleaning” a few weeks ago and decided to redecorate my bathroom to look something like the image below. I didn’t choose any pink-themed items, but I did purchase a few red-themed pieces from Kohls.com (links are below). I purchased the exact red and black floral shower curtain shown below, as well as 2 rug sets. One red and one black, since I’m not sure which will look best yet. Nice look for spring, right?? Either way, Kohl’s has a great selection for just about everything. I can’t wait for them to arrive!

Apt. 9® Stripe Plush Bath Rug (17″ x 24″ & 20″ x 32″) – Black

For years I thought Sperry Top-Sider only designed boat shoes. So, I admit I was surprised to find that Sperry carries a wide selection of apparel, accessories, sunglasses, scarves, phone cases, and of course — shoes! But not only do they have the Authentic Original, or the A/O as they like to call it, they also design ballet flats, heels, and boots.

If you’re looking for the perfect gift to give this holiday season, be sure to check out some great finds at www.sperrytopsider.com! It’s class, quality, and style all wrapped in one. They have styles for pretty much everyone on your list (women, men, and children). So go ahead — Make It A Merry Sperry Holiday!

Sperry invites you to celebrate the A/O. Post your pictures to Instagram or Twitter #CelebrateTheOriginal.
