Last week, during the much anticipated New York Fashion Week, I was fortunate enough to attend the Lucky Magazine and Movado Event at Bar Nana featuring the Movado Bold Collection. The event, of course, was nothing short of fabulous. With stunning watches, custom sizing, manicure stations, bracelet bar, and even a candy display- Lucky and Movado really outdid themselves this year!

What I Wore. For the big event, I wore a bold, bright 'engine red' midi skirt from Express. It's officially my favorite new piece! It's stylish, eye-catching, and even has pockets! I kept it simple and chic by pairing this fabulous piece with a classic black button down top, also from Express, and black pointed toe heels from Target. I was a little worried the shoes would be uncomfortable because of the slim heel, but they were actually great!

How I Accessorized. 'The beauty is in the details.' I accessorized with a chic black oversize envelope clutch from Express. This bag is amazing! It can be easily dressed up or down and it has a ton of room inside for anything and everything you need. For jewelry, I went with a chunky gold pave chain necklace, large pave leopard ring, and a two-tone metallic/matte bracelet. Each of these pieces are so versatile and can be worn almost daily, paired with just about anything. The leopard ring has become an obsession!

At the event, I got to choose a gorgeous Movado Bold watch. They even had a custom sizing station! Michael, with the Movado team, was hard at work all night. Shown above is a photo of him sizing my new beauty! Isn't that leopard hammer amazing? Who knew tools could be fashionable, too!

The Main Attraction. It's classic! It's stunning! It's BOLD! I am completely obsessed with my new Movado Bold watch. I didn't already have a nice, classic watch and now that I do, I'm wondering how I lived without one. This beauty not only tells me the time, but it also shows the day of the week and date. Don't get trapped in the 'I have the time on my phone' mindset. This is a must-have, everyday accessory and it's so much more than a time-teller.

Are you currently lusting over something? With NYC Fashion Week in full spring, I've got my eye on many things right now. Here's my top 5 obsessions of the moment!


1- Puffer Jackets: I've never been into puffy winter coats, but these slimmer fitting 'puffer jackets' have been on the scene for the past few Winters- and I'm finally getting on board! You can find these almost everywhere; Abercrombie & Fitch, Gap, and Express have a nice selection. But I'm in love with this cream, or 'natural' as they call it, J.Crew Quilted Puffer JacketThis style jacket can tend to look casual but the quilting and cream coloring with gold accents make it look a little more luxe.


2- Lucy Hale, Road Between album: I love such a wide array of music. I'm typically a pop, rock, alternative kind-of-gal, but lately I've been dabbling in pop country. Lucy Hale recently dropped her first album, Road Between, and saying I'm obsessed is an understatement. She is insanely talented and her album is fabulous. It has a nice mix of catchy, meaningful, and life-lesson tunes. My favorite songs: That's What I Call Crazy, Lie a Little Better, Kiss Me, and Nervous Girls. Road Between, Lucy Hale.


3- Bowler Hats: Often seen in the media and on celebs, I consider the bowler hat to be the ultimate 'cool girl' hat. It became Demi Lovato's signature look and recently, Taylor Swift has even been rocking one. It has an alternative look to it that I'm loving! Would I wear it? I'm still deciding if I can pull it off! Here's an affordable one- Amanda Ribbon Band Bowler Hat from Boohoo.


4- Red Band Society: I'm a big TV-buff and I always look forward to checking out the new Fall premieres to see if I can discover a new show to add to my DVR line-up. This year, I noticed the big networks have uploaded the new premiere pilot episodes to their websites for early viewing. I watched Red Band Society and I'm hooked! Starring Octavia Spencer alongside many new talents, Red Band Society is a unique coming-of-age show about a group of young teens that are living in a hospital for a variety of reasons- cancer, eating disorders, and heart conditions. It looks like they took down the online pilot, but be sure to check out the TV premiere on Wednesday, September 17th- Red Band Society on Fox.


5- Burgundy Loafers: Burgundy appears to be one of the hottest shades of the season. It's everywhere and I'm loving it! I just got these amazing Merona Burgundy Tuxedo Loafers from Target. At first I tried to dissuade myself from this impulse-buy, saying 'what would I wear it with.' Good thing I went with my gut on this one because I've literally been rocking these daily! What do they 'go' with? Try everything!
