About Me

My photo
I have always loved everything related with Fashion and in the last 5-10 years I have become even more interested in how fashion and technology can work together. In 2004 I started a web site selling designer bags and apparel for less, and in 2008 I took some time off to have kids. I have now launched the first ever NYC sample Sale APP that notifies the user of any and all sample sales/major retail sales within 1 mile of the user's location. User's can let the APP tell them where they can save up to 80% on all their favorite brands like, Prada, Fendi, DVF, Theory and so much more.

sex and the city part deux!

I loved Sex and the City when it was on HBO and loved seeing the first movie. Having lived in NYC since I was 18 I enjoy seeing certain restaurants and locations in New York that I have either been to or definitely recognize.
Love seeing all the fashion on the girls especially the handbags and shoes! I am planning a girl's night out on May 28th even though I will have newborn on my hands and a toddler but oh well I think my hubby can handle it for one night right?!

Make sure when you do your girl's night you put on your high heels i.e Manolos! I still have some that have I never worn and are collecting dust so a good excuse to bring them out.

Perfect White Tod's Handbag for summer

I love Tod's handbags especially the classic Tod's D Media bag in white and tan. Classic colors and classic bag for any mom who wants a bit of luxury in her life. This bag is a bit expensive at $785 (Retail $1,300) but worth every penny as it will last season after after season. White and tan are staple colors as is the this Tod's bag and will virtually go with almost any outfit. The leather is very durable and easy to wipe off stains. All hubbies out there should treat their wives to this bag for mother's day.

Spring time jewelry

I have recently become a big fan of J. Crew which if you would've told me that 5 years ago I would've said NO WAY TOO PREPPY! It seems as though in the last couple of years their style has become much cooler and chic and a lot less East Coast prep school style. I love their dresses, shoes, and especially their jewelry. I have never been a big fan of costume jewelry but slowly began incorporating pieces into my outfits (yes even now with a baby and one on the way) and it makes such a huge difference!

I love adding either big earrings and maybe a few gold bangles or several long necklaces and small earrings; however I try not to over do it because then it just looks silly. I also love thick bracelets and beaded cuffs. I once got a great jeweled cuff at Calypso. Check out these strand pearl necklaces from J. Crew. I picture them with a cool white or bright colored linen or light fabric button down shirt with jeans and heels or a nice T-shirts with cute shorts wedges and/or heels.

Great Rug and decorating idea for kids rooms

HI Ladies!

Please allow a shameless plug for a friend of mine whose has started a company selling great handmade high quality design rugs. These rugs are great for any room in the home and for a child's room as well. Handmade in Chile and of the best quality wool you could want.

If you want something stylish and one of a kind that no one else will have check out her site.

We of course bought one for my son's room and everyone loves it when they come over.
I would definitely get one for our daughters room whenever we move to a 3 BR!

Only 2 more weeks and finally spring time!

So I only have 2 more weeks until our baby girl is born and am I ready to have this baby. The last couple weeks are the worst and thank god I didn't gain as much weight as I did with my son. One day maybe I will reveal how fat I got!

For those that are on the east coast are probably outside enjoying this great weather we're having lately I mean 70 degrees that's more than enough reason to play hooky from work! It's also good timing for the birth of Adriana as I won't have to be stuck all day inside and can at least go for a walk and get a head start on losing some of the baby weight.

Amy moms out there have some ideas on how to lose the baby weight quickly? Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated.

Spring time handbags!

Hey Ladies!
It's about that time, time to put away the black, dark grey, and green and get out the pastels and great new spring time colors! I have the perfect "mom bag" that's functional yet stylish. I know I know it's white but that's okay white looks even better when it's a little dirty! :)

I have three different sizes for those who don't want a huge bag, I personally like larger bags but hey everyone has their own style and preference.
Take a good look at the FENDI logo handbags with red, yellow, and purple stitching.

Weekly coffee talk with my girls!

Every Thursday I meet with my two best mommy friends to bitch and moan about everything. we usually end up bitching about our husbands, kids and life in general and now that I am nearing the end of my pregnancy I like to bitch about that.

3 more weeks to go and it feels like an eternity. Ever had that feeling too? Feeling huge and uncomfortable and can't sleep. Unfortunately the no sleep problem will only get worse when the baby comes but maybe I will get more "quality" sleep or maybe that's just wishful thinking...

Anyway I really enjoy our coffee talks and highly recommend it for any mom. It's a great way to vent and just get a quick break from the kids and have some adult time.

Baby Shower

This Saturday I had my baby shower at this lovely bed and breakfast in the Gramercy section of NYC and everything was just so cute! We're expecting a little girl this time so everything was pink and dainty. My sister and friend did a great job of planning everything and making sure everything ran smoothly. Check out the flower shaped balloon and cake made out of diapers...so cute!

Thanks ladies for such a great time and all the beautiful gifts!

Fashion trends in NYC that every MOM could follow

Living in and around NYC you get to see a lot of handbags, shoes, and clothes that you may not see in the rest of the country. One of those items is a Foley and Corinna bag which are pretty popular in NYC however not sure they are as popular in the rest of the country. Foley and Corinna have a great boutique here in NYC and I was actually able to get my hands on 4 of the bags for my site.

I think any of these bags would be great for a busy on-the-go mom as they are fairly big and roomy and still VERY stylish.

Mom Friendly Handbag

Good Morning!
Last night I couldn't sleep and was thinking about different bags that could be functional yet chic for moms. I personally like the Foley and Corinna large city tote. It's pretty large and roomy inside and has a large pocket on the exterior of the bag so you can easily store more crap!

It comes in leather or patent leather great materials for all seasons.

1st post on my new blog!

Blog? what is that? Well here I go I am going to try this whole blog thing and hope there is at least someone out there that finds it a little bit interesting.

I have a 21 month old little boy, named Lucas, and we're expecting a little girl in less than a month! I have always been interested in clothes, shoes, bags and in 2004 I decided to try and make a biz out of it so I launched an online retail store selling designer handbags for less and in 2006 I started working in real estate hoping to make additional money to reinvest in my site. Took about two years to achieve my goal then the real estate market crash happened, I had a baby and now I am back to square one!

Like many moms would agree, to say that your life changes after you have kids is a serious understatement. However I am serious about trying to maintain some sort of style even if I have 10 kids. I would love to hear feedback from other moms and find out what they do to maintain their style.
