Hey lovies, I hope you all had a fantastic week. I believe we saw the last of snow for winter 2015 . . . finally! I had a love/hate relationship with the snow this year. On some days I liked it. The snow created a fluffy white cloak that covered the city streets and made NYC seem a little less busy and a lot more lovely. The hate part of the relationship arrived when the snow turned to slush. . . .Not to mention if the slush then turned to ice and you’re indefinitely banned from high heels.
The day I did this shoot was clearly one of the days I was loving the snow. I was barely able to find any frames where I wasn’t smiling. Freezing temperatures yes, YET smiling nonetheless.
So remember my last post when I spoke about my fur-less-ness and how obsessed I was with the Dennis Basso sable coats? I finally got my little paws on a sable of my own. Not Dennis Basso, but no less luxurious nor beautiful, NOT TO MENTION COZY!

After a bitter winter I wanted to capture some of the beauty of the snowfall, and the park in my neighborhood was the best place to do this. This is the only place on the Upper East Side where most of the snow was untouched with the exception of the paths for walking.
I got these boots and purse as a Christmas gift. I feel like I’ve seriously neglected the boots over the winter. I love them. But I just did not get the opportunity to wear them as much as I would have liked to. What’s not to love? They’re Chanel-leather, with tons of gold hardware and over-the-knee. Pretty serious stuff.
The few times I wore them, I paired it with leggings and skirts or a long dress, which masked the added appeal of them being thigh-high. For this shoot I was exploring how a winter glamazon would rock them with shorts. The result would either be fearless and fancy or crazy . . . lol.

We’ve all had those nights: when it’s snowing yet you still feel like going to the club, or you can’t wear heels but you want to be glam and sexy. Kind of like every New York City girl’s mantra this winter. This look is perfect for all of the above. If you’re not the subject of a Dolce & Gabbana ad, this is a way you can capture the sexiness of the black sheer dress without an overdose on trampiness. Style your sheer dress with shorts, a turtleneck, and low heel or flat over-the-knee boots. #AllBlackEverything!

No necklace nor jewelery needed. However I could not resist including these fun fringe earrings. They added that fun partygirl element that you need for a nightime look.
Even though my fur coat is short, it’s UBER warm. Paired with my over-the-knee boots, everything was balanced, temperature wise, plus I also got to show off my legs in the middle of winter.
Fearless and fancy? Nightclubs, get ready.
Fearless and fancy? Nightclubs, get ready. No Prada nor heels necessary. This little devil serves in sheer and Chanel. xoxoSB
