Staying Warm in Layers

January 4, 2017

Uniqlo Heattech

Despite my limited amount of space, I am not one of those people who rotates their closet by season. To be honest, it’s mostly out of laziness. I mean, who has time to pack and put their clothing away in storage, #amiright? But another reason is that I love to find ways to wear every piece of clothing I have year round. While it’s probably near impossible to pull of a yellow linen sun dress in the dead of winter, you’ll be surprised how many of your summer outfits can be “winterized”. Anything, from shorts to rompers and dresses, that’s in solid color or have winter-friendly patterns is fair game. You can transform to be winter ready by simply adding warm layers underneath. I love to do this using Uniqlo heattech items since the material is thin. This way I can add warmth without the bulk.

Moto and Metallic

December 20, 2016

Although I’ve had this maxi metallic pleated skirt forEVER, it’s still going strong in my regular outfit rotation. In an age of fast fashion that we’re in now, it’s always nice when a piece of clothing actually last longer (and is still fashionably relevant) after a couple of years. There’s something about metallic clothing that can instantly glam up any outfit. You’re never going to feel frumpy when you’re wearing metallic! Top it off with a faux-suede moto jacket, and you’ve got yourself a glam look with a touch of edge to it.

Away With The Laces

December 13, 2016

Adidas Stan Smith Velcro
Tell me if you’ve had this problem: you’re (as usual) running late and hurrying to leave your house. Your significant other (or whoever else you’re holding up) is waiting for you not-so-patiently by the door. “Okay, okay, I’m ready, just got to put on my shoes,” you say. Then you do that thing where you try to to do it without actually untying the shoelace, which is a futile effort.

Times like these is when I get really frustrated with lace-up shoes and why my slip on espadrilles was on heavy rotation in the summertime. But alas, the weather it way too cold for that — boots and sneakers is pretty much a required footwear choice for the foreseeable future. Of course, being the committed lazy efficient person that I am, I thought there must be an easy way to do sneakers sans laces. All of this without compromising style, of course. Then the light bulb went off: what about Velcro? Duh! Those shoes are awesome and were a favorite of mine when I was a little kiddo. So why not now?

Selma Drye Holiday 2016 Collection

December 8, 2016

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Selma Drye for Out of Office NY Network. All opinions are 100% mine.

Kellie Pickler’s Selma Drye Holiday 2016

Man what I would give for an NYC apartment that is entertaining worthy. But sometimes our dreams can be bigger than our pocket book — and that’s definitely the situation that I’m currently in. So what’s a girl to do when she wants to throw a holiday soirée? You gotta get your fave blogger babes together and pool your resources. Someone’s bound to be a friend who has friend who’s willing to lend out their kick ass apartment (one that’s way more spacious than my small one bedroom, for sure). Throw in some good frozen apps from Trader Joe’s, and tons of wine and cocktails for good measure, and you got yourself a swinging party. Of course all of the festivity decor needs to be on point. I mean, we are style bloggers after all.

Squaring Away The Check

December 5, 2016

This is a sponsored post written by me for Square Cash. All opinions are 100% mine.

Square Cash App

One thing that you guys might have deduced from our Instagram feed is that bloggers love to get together for brunch, dinner, happy hour, or pretty much any reason we can make up. The eating, drinking and chatting is always good fun. But splitting the check? Not so much. Especially when we’re in a bigger group. I just hate being that person asking the poor waiter to split the check eight ways. Back just a few years ago, if you wanted to avoid asking that awkward question, you choice was pretty limited. And if you’re the one who volunteers to pay the check, you’re might even be left with another uncomfortable prospect: reminding your friend who “forgot” to pay you back.

Thanks to the prevalence of money transfer apps, we now have options to help avoid all of that awkwardness — yay technology! One of such app I recently discovered is Square Cash. I know what you’re thinking: I already use that other app that rhymes with schmenmo and they’re all pretty much the same. Welp, that’s not quite right. Read on to find out my take on how it differs and how Square Cash might be the right one for you.

Giveaway Friday: LS Revolution

November 18, 2016

LS Revolution Absolutely Not D'Orsay Pump
It really has been awhile since we had a Giveaway Friday on Mimi and Chichi. The holidays, otherwise known as the seasons of gift (my favorite time of the year) is coming up, I thought it would be appropriate to start it back up. And what better way to kick it off by having one featuring one of my recent fave find: Absolutely Not D’Orsay pump from LS Revolution.

Why am I so gaga over LS Revolution? I just love that how comfortable their shoes are. Their motto is “fashion AND comfort” (it’s actually written on the box) and they really mean it. This is super important especially for someone like me who lives in NYC (read: we take public transportation everywhere). Because, lets face it, the prettiest pair of shoes is pretty much useless when it means that I have to Uber everywhere every time I wear it. Footwear that is both stylish and functional is worth its weight in gold.

One lucky reader will get to try on the style on comfort of the Absolutely Not D’Orsay pump for their very own. Read on to see more shots of this lovely pair of pumps find out how you can win.

Put On a (Big) Smile

November 15, 2016

I have crooked bottom teeth. It’s not terrible, but sure looks far from good. So when I smile, I usually make a point not to show my bottom teeth. Since I’m able to hide it, fixing my smile wasn’t something that’s on the priority list. I sure as hell am not going through the suffer through metal braces, and paying upwards of $7,000 for Invisalign just seems much too excessive. Enter: Smile Direct Club, the invisible braces kit that cost less-than-half of Invisalign. What’s the secret to their economical price tag? They cut out the expensive visits to the middle man (i.e.: dentists).
