South Moon Under Grand Opening


Join South Moon Under along with SJ Magazine and Alex's Lemonade at their Sagemore location in Marlton, NJ (500 Route 73 S Marlton, NJ 08053) for their Grand Opening Celebration on Thursday, June 6 from 6 to 9 p.m.! I was able to visit the store for a press preview and I absolutely love it! Their selection includes a wonderful variety of brands and items to chose from fashion to beauty and even some home decor.


The first 50 attendees will receive an exclusive swag bag of fashion and accessory goodies! Guests will also be able to enter in-store product giveaways, sip on lemonade cocktails by Honest Tea and get pampered with mini manicures by Butter London!


Shop some of summers hottest trends and a percentage of the proceeds will be donated to Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation to help raise money for childhood cancer research. I'm sure you'll find something you'll love! Hope to see you there!

Summer White

Jeffrey Campbell Don't Cap Toe Booties $128
Tory Burch Tabby Skinny Pants $195
Tory Burch Isabella Jacket $395
BCBG Lasercut Harlow Clutch $128
C.Wonder Sleeveless Eyelet Cotton Dress $168
So far I already have two events coming up that require white attire, which has me on the hunt for some cute partyware this summer. One of the events is Diner en Blanc, an international outdoor dining event happening in Philadelphia. Last year, the dinner was held at the Swann Memorial Fountain on Logan Square and attracted thousands of hopeful guest. Whether in an edgy, sexy jumpsuit or a sweet cotton eyelet dress, there are tons of options to choose from, but here are just a few to get you started. Are you going to any all white themed parties this season?

Striped Body Con


I modeled this cute striped body con dress for the Martinis and Manicures event at the Sugarhouse Casino. This dress and the lucite necklace is from Aci Nae Boutique located on 1928 Passyunk Ave. Not only do they sell amazing clothes, but they also have their own line as well. If you're ever in the area, it's definitely a shop to check out!


Martinis & Manicures

R to L: Alix, Natalie, Me, Kate, Jessie, & Courtney

The Martinis & Manicures Event hosted by my girl, Jessie Holeva of Trend Hungry was so much fun. I had the exciting opportunity to be a model for the event. I wore a black and white striped dress from Aci Nae boutique that I absolutely loved. (See more pics here). The other striped dress with abstract floral print accents was also from Aci Nae boutique located on 1928 E. Passyunk Ave.


Niche Boutique supplied the rest of the trendsetting pieces and you can visit their shop located on 29 South High Street in West Chester, PA. Everyone looked so nice and had a great time. 



Special Thanks to Aci Nae and Niche Boutique for the cool treads and to everyone that came out and partied with us. View the fashion show on our youtube channel!

Scatter My Ashes


When you think of Bergdorf's what comes to your mind? Is it the luxury brands, the dreamy shoe salon, or those unbelievable window displays? Maybe it's all three. Bergdorf Goodman is truly a staple department store in the fashion industry. However, department store is one of the last ways I would think to describe such a grand place. So grand, that women have considered wanting their ashes scattered among the building. Which brings me to the title of the new documentary, "Scatter My Ashes At Berdgorf's". If you're a lover of the history of fashion and learning how such power houses came to be, gather up some friends and check out this movie in select theaters. You'll find some of your favorite designers such as Michael Kors, Christian Louboutin, and Oscar de la Renta telling about their own personal connection to Bergdorf Goodman. I'm ready to pay a visit just thinking about it. I really enjoyed watching it and I hope you will, too!

Let's Shop Philly: West Elm


West Elm has opened it's newest location in the King of Prussia Mall. It was my first time stepping inside the store full of beautiful home decor. During the press preview, I learned a lot about the company and what they represent. Words like sustainability, recycled, and handmade are found on tags around the store giving you a more personal invitation to learn more about it.





The West Elm customer is as much a part of their store as the items in it with events from book tours to workshop classes. There is even a free design lab for customers to work one-on-one with a Home Stylist, to assist you with measuring, floor plans and paint colors. Customers can also take advantage of the In-Home services to handle everything from painting to installing a photo wall and creating library shelving. These stores are meant to encourage shoppers to mix and match, touch and feel, and try and test.












Even more personal is the way West Elm collaborates with artist both locally and worldwide. During the celebration, tote bags designed by local artist Jim Digiovanni, were given to the first 300 customers with purchases totaling $50 or more. (Check out the tote here) On a global scale, you can find wall decorations of papier-mache animal sculptures handmade in Haiti from recycled materials.







So if you're in need of some modern home decor at good prices, stop by the West Elm store in the Court of the King of Prussia Mall. There's something for everyone, even if you not a home owner. If you're in the city, visit their Center City location on 1330 Chestnut Street.
