Ferrari Tributo

(On Emily – Blouse, Zara. Pants, Raven Denim. Shoes, Pour La Victoire. Purse, Rebecca Minkoff. Sunglasses, Bottega Veneta.)
As Summer seems to be coming to an end, we realized we didn’t really do enough “Summery” stuff. So we’ll be making up for all of it before NYFW commences! Although, it was an early morning wake up call, we weren’t mad about HAVING to rush to be at the Ritz-Carlton by 6am… surrounded by Ferrari’s. Emily even wore all white everything and some Ferrari red shoes to match ;) 
Engine’s began to roar and we were off in a sea of Ferrari’s to the Hampton’s for Ferrari Tributo festivities :) Lunch, lemonade, big hats, so much champagne, and the closing day Polo match at the Bridgehampton Polo Club! We ended the day with some cocktails in the city at the Ferrari Club. Not too shabby of a beginning to the end of Summer! 
Stay tuned for baseball games, Coney Island, $2 drinks, roller coasters, beaches and Shark boats!

Baby, let’s cruise.

We set sail from the Skyport Marina on Cloud Nine… doesn’t that seem like a big fat lie?! But in fact, those were the actual names of the marina and the boat. The heavens decided to give us the hottest day in August, so we were more than ready to cruise around the city with some delicious Malibu Spiced Rum cocktails.

We’d actually never tried the Spiced Rum before, but now we totally approve. Tastes unreal with ginger ale! You can count on Malibu to concoct the best summery cocktails, and they never forget the umbrella ;)
If you’ve never boated around Manhattan, we highly suggest it. We always forget about the lovely Lady Lib, the view of three cities, the islands, and best of all… the freeing breeze. Can’t wait to plan our next excursion before Summer fades away.

Malibu Island Spiced combines Malibu’s signature blend of Caribbean rum and coconut liqueur with light spices, smoked vanilla, cinnamon and a touch of sweetness with Truvia®, zero-calorie sweetener. The result is a lo-cal, big-flavored spiced rum alternative. Find out more at https://www.facebook.com/Maliburum/app_501945323176523″

It seems the glamorous and greedy, Cruella de Vil, has fled her mansion and gotten a hold on one of the adorably spotted dalmatian pups. Smoking her long thin cigarette, she longingly dreams of the spot covered coat she’s been craving so badly. But will her evil ways pay off or will the pup escape the clutches of this red lipped villain? 
… no evil thing will.

On The Bright Side

It’s not a secret that we love darker colors, but when it’s Summer, we sometimesss adhere to the happier hues. Okay, so the outfit is still all black, BUT we have found a few brightened Summer staples to lighten up our look.

A royal blue Love Quotes scarf is an attention-getter, and of course an amazing brand, with a great cause. For beauty, rather than a dark lip and dark eyes, we opt for a punchy M.A.C. lip color, and simple mascara. You’d be surprised how much a pink lip commands the room. Lastly, we run our straightener over our wavy locks for a sleek and sexy put together look.

Sure maybe we won’t change our “Fall/Winter” aesthetic, but we’ve always loved to mix it up, and more importantly, shock people! (Hence the red latex turban.) So it’s off to rooftops and beaches to soak up what’s left… what will you do before Autumn hits?

Found some old Springtime photos that are preparing us for the cool Fall weather. Summer is wonderful, but we gravitate towards layering, and Autumn (aka Halloween season.) Despite the rain, we made our way over to the Geova Atelier to grab some cute kitten ears and snap some photos. Once we were decked in our feline gear, we went where no cat should ever go, a dog park. However, the dogs seemed unphased by us, so we decided to do what no pedestrian should ever do, stand in the middle of a NYC street with your back to traffic. Not our best idea, but let’s be honest… when are our ideas really the best?

Rococo Dessous

Have you ever heard of 24-karat gold THREAD?! If not, you should probably invest in some panties made with it… aka Rococo Dessous’ specialty. We were already won over with the candles and rose petals, and ultimately loved the luxe lingerie show. Definitely need to invest in a sheer robe. We’re so uncool in PJ’s… damn it.

Cidre

We escaped the unbearable Summer heat at The Mondrian Soho, and fast forwarded to the most amazing brisk Fall day (yes, it was the AC, but for ambiance purposes… it was brisk air.) A beer in hand, surrounded by apple trees, and serenaded by a fantastic folk band. We’ve been to Mister H in the Mondrian quite a few times, and have seen many different decorations, but Stella certainly takes the cake.

The atmosphere was incredible, but we have to admit, the new Stella Artois Cidre was even better! Perfectly blended to create a delicious cider beer. We were already fans of the brand, but this creation is so scrumptious it’s unbelievable. It seemed like everyone at the event couldn’t get enough!

We cannot wait for Fall… but I think that’s obvious considering our constantly updated Halloween Pinterest album. We have a strong feeling we’re going to be drinking quite a bit of this brew :) It’s made with hand-picked apples! Have a taste and let us know if you’re as obsessed as us!

BRADELIS

We were eager to attend Lingerie FW for the first time, and for their second season, at the Met Pavilion. After some delicious boozing, and mixing and mingling with the likes of Jincey and Bex, aka NYC’s lingerie-elite, beauties donning BRADELIS took over the scene. Naturally we lusted over the black sets, but our hearts did fawn over the floral looks as well! A few more brands to come.  ;)
