Tevolio for Target

Recently, Target.com launched a bridal line called Tevolio. This is the first exclusive bridal collection for the mass retailer and it is all online. After shopping the assortment, I have to say I was pretty impressed. The selection of dresses was somewhat disappointing since there are only a few styles to choose from. On the other hand, there are plenty of options for the bridesmaids. There are lots of styles and colors to choose from.

See: The Great Gatsby

This weekend, I went to go see highly anticipated film, The Great Gatsby. I thought the movie was great, and here are my top 5 reasons why.

5. Baz Luhrmann’s Direction: Baz Luhrmann, the man behind the camera for films such as Moulin Rouge, Romeo + Juliet, and Australia,truly made The Great Gatsby into a spectacle. My favorite trademark is his use of vivid color. The character’s eye colors seem to pop more, the lights seem to glow brighter and the party scenes feature a rainbow of dazzling characters.

4. The Music: One of my favorite aspects of the movie is the juxtaposition of the 1920s era and modern music. The film’s soundtrack features artists such as Jay-Z, Florence Welsh, Lana Del Rey and Beyonce–not the usual suspects you would think of when it comes to the 1920s, but somehow, it really works with this film. I have to have this soundtrack!

3. The Costumes: You can’t have a period piece without amazing costumes, and this film delivers! The costume designer is Catherine Martin, who just happens to be Baz Luhrmann’s wife. Martin absolutely captures the Roaring 20s era and gives credit to her collaboration with Miuccia Prada. To see more about this collaboration and a behind-the-scenes look of the costumes, take a look at the video below.

2.New York City: This movie reminds me of the reasons why I love New York City, but it sheds a whole new light on the city. Although a majority of the film takes place in Long Island, it gives the viewers plenty of NYC shots. We get to see the busy streets of Wall Street, the glimmering lights in Time Square and the luxurious views of the park from The Plaza Hotel. My favorite part, though, was seeing the panoramic shots of the city where you can see many of the landmark buildings, including the Empire State Building, in the progress of being built. It’s very cool, and it makes me want to go back in time and see what it was really like to live in NYC during that time.

1. Leo: I just have to say that Leonardo DiCaprio was amazing in this movie. Like every movie he is in, he seems to really capture the essence  of Jay Gatsby. I went into the movie trying to compare him to the original film with Robert Redford, but there is no comparison. DiCaprio can stand on his own when it comes to playing one of the most famous literary characters of all time.

Do: My Night with Lauren Graham

Last Thursday night, my friend Kayda and I went to Lauren Graham’s book signing for her new novel, Someday, Someday, Maybe. She was signing at the Barnes and Noble store in Union Square. Being a huge Gilmore Girls fan growing up, I naturally had to attend this book signing. The show had a huge impact on my teenage years, and to this day, I still dream of having blue eyes. The book, Someday, Someday, Maybe looks really good, and I am excited to start it soon. I will keep you all posted when I finish it!

Take a look at some of my favorite pieces.

Splurge vs. Steal

Boots are all the rage this fall. They are so helpful in keeping your feet warm from the snow, ice, and wind. Boots are super comfortable, and they are acceptable to wear in most work places. For today’s post, I have found three types of boots that are must haves for this fall. You can either splurge on a pair of boots, or you can get them for a steal! It all depends on your monthly or seasonal budget.

First, I found two great pairs of tall black wedges. I just love wearing wedge boots because they are not only comfortable, but they look great with jeans tucked in, or they look great with dresses and skirts with tights. They can be casual or dressy.

Splurge- Rick Owens for $1,895 at Saks

Steal- Lucky Brand for $219

I love lace up ankle boots. They are great for casual work days and running errands on the weekend. I love them with rolled up jeans and a simple tee with a sweater or with a girly dress and a jean jacket.

Splurge- Diesel for $320 at Ssense

Steal- Old Navy for $25

This fall and winter, you are going to need a great pair of rain boots. Not only are they essential for those rainy days, but they are perfect for walking in sloshy and slippery snow. When it gets super cold outside, buy some rain boot socks to keep your feel extra warm.

Splurge- Givenchy for $280 at Kima Zabete

Steal- Chooka for $89 at Dillards
