Watches have always been a classic accessory, but finding one that's unique and beautifully designed can be a tough job. The Classic NATO Watch designed by Eduardo Umaña is a perfect combination of classic and modern. Born in Bogota, Colombia, he moved to Miami at age 15 and later attended Swarthmore College where he obtained a Bachelor of Science in engineering. While in school, he began developing a limited number of classic NATO Watches, which he began selling to his friends and family.

What to Wear {Date Night}

What to Wear {Date Night}

Shop the Look


Philadelphia has some great places to go for a date night. For your next night out, throw on something traditional and try something a little non-traditional. A Karaoke Lounge is a fun way to break the ice, if it's a first date, or you could make a fool of yourself belting out tunes you two made memories over. But don't get me wrong, we're not talking about your ordinary karaoke bar. I'm talking about Yakitori Boy, Philadelphia's first Isakaya (Japanese style pub) and Upscale Karaoke Bar. Even more exciting, this Wednesday they're celebrating their 8th year anniversary! (Click here for the details.) So warm up those vocal chords and get ready to sing like no one's watching!

Marc Jacobs x Disney Collection

Unfortunately, I'm missing out on my family's annual trip to Disney World for the Wine and Food Festival. (FYI: I am a Disney maniac.) To cope, I've been hooked to my nephews snapchat account and my sister's periscope videos to check out the action. If I lived in a world of my own, I would be going and having a blast while wearing something from Marc Jacobs Disney Collection. The collection is focused around one of my favorite Disney movies, Alice in Wonderland. (I think I know almost every word.) The Garden Sweatshirt has to be my favorite piece. I could totally see myself wearing this wether or not I'm in Disney.

Celeb Look for Less: Zendaya
Shop the Look

If you've been a follower of Fashion of Philly for some time now, you may have seen previous Celeb Look for Less post, but it's been a while. (Check out the last one featuring Beyonce here.) So I decided to bring them back. For one thing, I really enjoyed creating these looks, plus who doesn't like knowing that you could pay wayyyy less to dress like a celeb. This week's look is from Zendaya. She's got some amazing style and I love this jumpsuit look on her. It's stylish, comfortable and can be easily pulled off no matter your body type. Pair a grey jumpsuit with a few metallic gold accessories and you're ready for the good time.

A Night with derma e

As the weather gets colder, the way we care and moisturize our face becomes very important. The change in temperatures can cause dry skin which dry skin that can lead to signs of aging. Of course, treating your skin for the day is good, but replenishing those cells at night is even better.

Shop & Style: Trench Coats

One of my favorite pieces of outerwear for the season is the timeless trench coat! Completely versatile, stylish, and classic, it's definitely one piece I would advise every women (and man) to invest in. The ultimate investment would be the Burberry Kensington Trench Coat.  It will forever be an iconic piece.
