*Team Luxxie in action*

Guests were invited to the Luxxie Lab to take in, and most importantly try on, our very first collection. With our garments hot off the press from LA all of our Kickstarter supporters and special guests were finally able to breathe in the true fabulousness of a Luxxie Boston!

The line for the dressing room seemed to never end and the excitement of the opportunity to try on every style was palpable. With our leading Luxxie boss lady, Stefanie Mnayarji, on call every guest had the chance to experience a personal fitting with the brains behind this operation and learn why they needed a Luxxie in their closet. By the end of the event we were beyond pleased to see that many of our guests would no longer be “spanxing” themselves, but instead would be draped in silk feeling confident, sexy and comfortable all day long! World domination has officially begun so stay tuned for all that Luxxie Boston has in store because ladies why reshape yourself, when you can reshape the world?

Yesterday we lost a true fashion icon with the passing of Mr. Oscar De La Renta. His memory, however, will forever live on through all of his fabulous creations and he will never be forgotten. In honor of Mr. De La Renta I’ve compiled some of my favorite looks of his, as well as a few quotes, for you all to enjoy! Happy humpday and I hope that these images inspire you.

Luxxie Boston: Bringing Classy Back.

_MG_4166-Edit

 

Good Morning! I am BEYOND excited to announce my latest endeavor. Last week I took on the position of marketing/PR/social media intern at Luxxie Boston. My role will include blogging, managing the social media accounts and promoting this AMAZING, as well as innovative, product.

Luxxie Boston is a luxury lingerie company that Stefanie Mnayarji began in response to “the lack of options for foundation wear for women who wanted a solution that was functional, comfortable and sexy.” The modern women has no time for the disadvantages of discomfort and Luxxie Boston allows women to walk into any room with confidence because she does not have to worry about wardrobe annoyances. From slips, to camis, to maxis Luxxie has all you need for foundation wear. It’s finally time for us to say goodbye to the sausage casing that is shape wear!

After learning about Luxxie Boston, and their goal to create a revolution in women’s lingerie, I knew that this was the right place for me! The message, which Luxxie Boston conveys is one of self and body acceptance. Why should we have to suffer in shapewear? We are fabulous just the way we are so no more restricting ourselves and accepting discomfort. It’s impossible for us to be the best versions of ourselves if we are uncomfortable and worried about the fit and feel of our clothes. Getting dressed in the morning should be an exciting part of our day and Luxxie Boston can help make it that way.

There is so much room for growth in this position and I cannot wait to contribute to the Luxxie Boston movement. We are reinventing the slip for the modern women and allowing her to reach her fullest potential because she feels comfortable, sexy and confident. When you feel this way on the inside than it will undoubtedly shine through you. Are you ready for change? If so you can pre-order your Luxxie Boston here: LuxxieBoston.com

Things I’m Loving Thursday <3

  • Arm Candy: Pretty much every girl loves her bling and I am no exception. I must admit that I have a disgusting amount of jewelry (remember ladies and gentleman I am somewhat of a hoarder haha). So, I thought I would share with all of you some of my favorite “army candy” looks.

  • “Hello Gorgeous” Light Fixture: Yesterday I ventured to Home Goods searching for a desk chair, but low and behold I couldn’t find a chair that tickled my fancy. However, shockingly, I did not come out of there empty handed haha. I left with this amazebalz light fixture and can’t wait to get it all set up! The office space is coming together 😉

  • Gelato Fiasco Pomegranate Chocolate Chunk Sorbetto: Stumbling upon my all time favorite sorbetto from Gelato Fiasco, the delicious gelateria located in my college town, was fate and I have done some serious damage on this pint. I highly recommend it and will definitely be going back for more!

  • Sippy Wine Cup: I really think that the reason why I choose this as one of my favorite things goes with out explanation…I mean come on how awesome and easy are these? I desperately want one of the monogrammed cups so I can officially have claims on one!

  • Sissy Time: Very few relationships compare to that of the one you have with your sister. I am lucky to call this babe my twinkie and so thankful that I have her in my life.  Since moving back home we both have been conscious about spending time together because we are on such different work schedules. I love her to the moon and truly appreciate all the effort she has put forth in our relationship. Love ya more 🙂

Pretty in (Hot) Pink

e7a1867ec2e779bb599dba701914da48

 

As I’ve mentioned before I have always been a pink girl. My mom, in an effort to ensure that my sister and I have our own identities (and as a tool for other people to tell us apart haha), dressed me in pink and Kate in blue…not gonna lie it was pretty friggen adorable 🙂 Since then pink has just stuck with me. It’s by no means my “signature” color or am I obsessed with the hue, but I love to rock it when I can and feel really amazing when I actually do. Last Saturday night for our Spring Gala I wore this amazebalz  dress from Dreamgirls Boutique and was so happy. I felt confident, self assured, and beautiful…there’s really nothing quite like feeling pretty in pink 😉

Let Your Shirt Speak For Ya Every Now and Then :)

 When I first thought about writing this post my mind instantly went back to the middle school days of Abercrombie & Fitch graphic tees…I’ve grown up and I’d like to believe that my style has improved DRASTICALLY since then, but I have to say A&F had something pretty cool going on there. Every now and then who doesn’t want to wear a top that communicates their feelings or represents them in some capacity? I think it’s a really fun and easy way to take charge of your style and show others things that you love. Also, it’s an awesome way to add some wit into your daily life and possibly bring a smile not only to your face, but someone elses’ as well, and who doesn’t want to brighten up some spirits?

Here are a few fun examples, including myself, rocking my fav Spiritual Gangster sweater (I apologize for the selfie…desperate times haha):

(Clearly also a no makeup day…woops!)

What do you want your top to say about you?

Hey Kate Spade, I La-La-La Love Ya :)

Kate Spade is one of my all time favorite designers. Her wit and charm is undeniable and her handbags, wallets, shoes, jewelry, etc. are to die for! I am especially drawn to the quotes she includes on some of her pieces. They are inspirational and bring a smile to my face so I of course have many of them displayed in my dorm room, where I need to constantly be reminded of anything cheerful haha. Here are some examples of awesome quotes and Kate Spade designs. I hope you all enjoy them as much as I do!

bling bling

For as long as I can remember I have had an obsession with jewelry. In all sincerity this love affair goes back a long, long, long time. When I was in the first grade we had to do a “100 things” project, where we compiled 100 things and counted them out and displayed them in some sort of creative way. While most kids chose to showcase different candies, legos, or their sea-glass collections, I gathered all of my jewelry together and easily hit 100 pieces. As I grew older jewelry became an even more significant part of my life. In middle school I decided to start making my own necklaces and earrings and had a little business going. It was so rewarding and I really hope to pick that hobby up again in the near future. One aspect, in particular, that I adore about jewelry is that it doesn’t matter what size you are, or how icky you are feeling about yourself, a special necklace, ring, etc. can turn your mood upside down.

Here are some pieces that I would DIE to have (I really need to start saving)!:

Earlier this morning I stumbled across this tee on pinterest (no surprise there) and I just think that it is perfection!  The message it sends, I believe, is  inspirational as well as extraordinary.  I mean, seriously, how could you not hold your head high and radiate self-confidance when you are wearing a tee that is telling you to always “be your beautiful self” ?  I think that I’ll just have to get one of these lovely shirts for the days when telling myself I’m beautiful just doesn’t cut…there’s nothing wrong with wearing a physical reminder to fight off the negative thoughts you might feel towards yourself. You gotta do what you gotta do!
