Burlington Grand Opening + Giveaway!


With one visit to Burlington, you can get something for everyone in your family. I grew up going to Burlington, back when it was Burlington Coat Factory, but now they're so much more than coats. From houseware to beauty and fragrance there's so much to see and shop. On my most recent trip, I picked up a pair of cute fashion booties, makeup remover wipes, nail care items, some things for around the house and clothing for myself, my lil man and SharpShooter. (Don't forget to check out my instagram for pics!) Select stores even have a designer showroom where you can find pieces from designers like Gucci and Jimmy Choo. On October 24, Burlington will be opening two new stores in the Philadelphia area: Hatfield (1591 Bethlehem Pike) & Philadelphia (7301 Castor Avenue). As you know on Fashion of Philly, we love a grand opening so we're celebrating by hosting a $50 gift card giveaway! To enter simply, follow the task in the widget below. Happy Entering!

Eagles #NFLfanStyle


Philadelphia is known for having the best sports fans and Eagles fans are flying high this season. Just walking around the city on game day (or any given day) you'll see tons of guys showing off their favorite Eagles gear. Sharpshooter (my fiance and photographer/videographer) is definitely one of them. He bleeds GREEN. However, when it comes to official women's NFL apparel, look no further than NFLShop.com. I love this GIII Touch Hadley Tee, the loose fit and mesh back makes it perfect for game day (or night).
