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.

NYCchic.com was featured in Latina & Essence Magazine

Hey Ladies!

Our web site was featured in two magazine publications-Latina & Essence which showcased several pieces of the Chrissy L jewelry line. This jewelry has become so popular among celebrities and has received so much press that the pieces are selling out quickly.

Thanks to my sister Suzee and her partner Kristi (they have a PR company called Industry Publicity) my little site has been featured in major magazines. Hopefully this will translate into sales!

Take a look at the magazines spreads and as usually all items can be purcahsed on www.nycchic.com.

Sea Island, Georgia... Amazing place for kids

We just got back from a 3 day vacation in Sea Island, Georgia and then took a day trip to visit some friends in Savannah, Georgia. I can't say enough great things about both places. The resort we stayed at called the Cloisters was amazing and I have never seen a place so kid and family friendly. They had day camps for kids, a jungle gym on the beach, a large pool shallow enough for small children to walk, small movie theater for kids, candy shop, and an old fashioned 50's style soda fountain. The beaches are beautiful and not crowded at all and although the water is freezing the shore is wide enough and long enough to take long strolls on the beach.

In addition to everything I have already mentioned the Southern charm is in full effect as everybody was so nice and friendly and you never get those looks like, "damn there are kids here!" The property is huge and also includes a 65,000 square foot spa for those moms that never get a chance to get a massage or facial!

Savannah is about a 2 hour drive and it's such a beautiful little town and I love how all the townhouses are facing a square. The city is so green and full of beautiful parks and is very kid friendly as well. If you ever go you should stay at a great small boutique hotel called The Mansion on Forsyth Park. The decor is very cool and they also have a restaurant that is pretty good and seems like it's a place locals also eat at. The hotel also has a pool that's not too big and not too small, it's just right! Forsyth Park is a beautiful park full of huge willow trees and flowers of every color, they also have a cafe in the park where you can sip on a glass of wine or have a beer.

Hope to see ya'll there!

ADAM & Spring skirts.....

Has anyone noticed the high waisted sometimes pleated skirts that are in for spring? I love them and would pair it with heels or cute flats for a day look. Yesterday I was shopping around NYC and saw so many but the best skirt I saw was at ADAM. Love the color and style...

ADAM & Glamourpuss Bracelet.....

For my birthday back in October my sister gave me a gift certificate to ADAM (Adam Lippes) and at the time I had never heard of the designer but soon fell in love with the clothes. A few months ago I bought a beautiful ADAM dress from www.THEOUTNET.com for only $100 which normally retails at $250. It's a great grey metallic tweed dress designed in a polished sheath silhouette, with a deep v-neck, pockets, a defined waistband and pleated skirt. This style of dress is flattering on almost any body type.

To add some PIZAZZ to this dress try Chrissy L's Glamourpuss Bracelet in Turquoise for $187 it's an easy way to add some color to any outfit. Glamourpuss Bracelet by Chrissy L was also featured in Australia Cosmopolitan Magazine and worn by Holly Madison at an event in Las Vegas.

New Spring Looks By ZARA

I have been married for 9 years to a Spaniard so I have consequently been shopping at ZARA for 9 years. Over the years the designs and selection has grown tremendously and although the prices have gone up a bit after the Spanish currency switched from the Peseta to the Euro the prices are still very reasonable. I have never bought anything from ZARA here in NYC because I always associate ZARA with Spain, but now that the exchange rate with the Euro is so high it's probably cheaper now to buy in the USA! I was just at ZARA yesterday while shopping in NYC and I saw these great $40 pair of yellow jeans and at only $40 it's a great and inexpensive fun way to brighten up your wardrobe for the spring and summer. Pair with a cute navy and white tank or just a white tank and timeless gold Jack Rogers Sandals. SO CUTE!

In addition to the yellow jeans I also saw the cutest red skirt with pink & white stripes which was paired with a light airy sleeveless pink top with ruffles down the middle. The skirt was only $40 and the top was equally affordable at around $39. I am still thinking about it and just might go back and get it.

Check out some of the new spring looks from ZARA.
