Memorial Weekend Events


I hope you all have a fabulous Memorial Day Weekend. Of course, the place to be for any NYC urbanite is the DanceAfrica celebration in Brooklyn. It’s one of my all-time favorite traditions, and it’s great to see all of my dancing sisters come together– It’s like a family reunion of sorts. This weekend, I will be hosting a DanceAfrica brunch with a few of my girlfriends, and we’ll spend the rest of the afternoon playing in the BAM parking lots, shopping and listening to great music. Don’t miss it! Tip: If you were unable to get a ticket for the performance, hang around until intermission; the audience tends to thin out, and you can grab a seat if you’re lucky!

Alex and Ani: Beautiful Beatitude

Consciousness isn’t usually the first thing that I associate with jewelry, for baubles have been– for the most part — associated with affluence and allure. However, after coming across a jewelry line that– in the words of founder and designer, Carolyn Rafaelian– creates a stronger sense of purpose through powerful, meaningful, and spiritual elements, I’ve come to see that glamour and awareness can successfully coexist in the form of Alex and Ani‘s jewelry and accessories:

amethyst and fuschia crystal Ocean Current earrings, $88


Smara five-drop wood necklace, $128


Shalya russian gold necklace, $148

Scorpio russian gold earrings, $98


Queen of the Highway beaded/ russian gold expendable bangles, $98
pink rose gold Vernal wonderwoman cuff, $78

pale amethyst dotted russian gold Standing on the Moon chain belt, $178 swarovski crystal vintage stone hair comb, $28

While the mix of downtown chic and uptown polish has caught the eye of such fashionistas as Mary J. Blige, its charity through in founding Project USA , an organization geared towards providing aid to those in need, showcase their willingness to put their ability to put their money where their mouth is.
Interested? You can either check out their website, or Saks Fifth Avenue and other fine stores.

A white shirt, straight (not skinny) jeans, and pumps are always classic

Dressed up for work or down for the weekend, the shirtdress is a chic investment

The sailor pant fits right in with the nautical themes this season
