Hello Bloggies!

Its 4 days until Christmas so I will be taking a slight break from blogging! All I want to do is put on a bunch of cashmere and sit in from of the fire watching christmas movies.

So far my holiday has begun with numerous Cafes and Hot Chocolatesย 

Gold Painted Chanel nails for parties to come…

And some Christmas shopping….some special little things for myself too – would you pass these up if you saw them all beautiful like this on display? ๐Ÿ˜‰

So I leave you with the great vocal stylings of Judy Garland and wish you a happy and healthy holiday!

Hello Again Bloggies!

I am back once again and this time to discuss one of this winter’s most prominent trends (especially in the cities) – the fur vest. Now, I am not an advocate for fur, so I am going to have to side with going for faux fur. This trend is so in right now and there are a lot of beautiful faux fur alternatives to the real thing. But regardless of my opinion on the matter, lets talk about this trend! Now black fur vests have come full force this season and are really quite chic. I prefer them styled a la Ms. Palermo, one of my style icons in the first photo, with some leather leggings and an all black look. Brown faux fur vests are also in style and can look quite chic if styled correctly.

Whether styled like Elle:


Or two of my fave stylistas MK & A

You cannot go wrong…unless you pull one of these:

She may be fabulous, but her faux fur is not

All kidding aside, reasonably priced vests can be found all over, but I particularly love this one sold by Victorias Secret:

Ta Ta and Ciao for now!

Tis The Season once again for….

Creamy White Coats and….

Icelandic Sweaters with leggings and faux fur



The holidays are truly the most wonderful time of the year. And despite my general disdain for cold weather, I do love transitioning into (some) winter fashion ๐Ÿ˜‰

I was perusing this past Fall’s collections, for now is the time that we can actually put some of those trends into good use. For example, the Icelandic sweater that took center stage at D&G. This print has forever been a staple at “bad Christmas sweater” parties but leave it to the geniuses at D&G to make it fabulously enviable! The prints are beautiful, the colors complementary, the fur sparsely added for a chic statement. When I first watched the show months ago, I immediately wanted to jump to December, grab my Icelandic mini-sweater dress and oversize chunky knit scarf, and fly away to a ski lodge in Aspen.

Now is the time when we can actually do such a thing..for the weather outside is frightful but the snow is so delightful. Although, I know few who could actually just jet off to Aspen on a moments notice with a new D&G sweater, but hey, we can dream can’t we?? ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Holidays everyone! I’ll be doing more holiday posts soon with more than just fashion (gift ideas on a budget, food, decorations ect.) but for now I leave you with visions of Dolce and Gabbana dancing in your heads… ๐Ÿ˜‰

Ta Ta for now and Ciao!

Street Style

street style, classic

Hi everyone!!

This is my first post for my new blog Gisele in the City! I am very excited about this blog and thought I would take a minute to discuss what it is about. Short and sweet, I love fashion – always have always will. I am a religious follower of designer collections and love adapting the looks on a lower budget! A city is a great place to discover and see fashion at its best, which is why I am devoting my blog to not only fashion in general but fashion inspired by particular cities. That being said, I could not think of a better first post than street style, because what’s more city than street style?? ๐Ÿ™‚ I am starting us off with a look that I love via the city of lights. This is a model in Paris rocking the forever classic mens-wear blazer and navy blue and white striped tee. Matched with some skinny dark jeans and black boots she looks forever chic! I know this is a quick post and I will put more pictures in later.
