Here is another Winter Thrift Haul video featuring the items I picked up while back home for the Thanksgiving holiday. No heavy coats this time, but definitely some must-haves for the winter - sweaters, a beautiful sequin top perfect for holiday parties, and some blazers!
Thanks for watching, loves.

The weather has been super gross in NYC for the past few weeks, and while I wish I was out exploring, I don't mind spending the extra time at home, soaking in a tub, treating myself to a facial, and trying on new scents, lipstick and shoes.
You'll notice that I rarely ever incorporate pink into my wardrobe, and when I do it's almost always minimal. This is NOT the case when I'm at home rejuvenating with the products I love to feel the most feminine. Clearasil sent over a few of their brand new superfruit products, and my absolute favorite is the superfruit facial scrub.
To celebrate how I #WinTheDay, here are a few of my favorite products that help me feel and look feminine, rejuvenated and my very best.

How do you #WinTheDay?
All black everything.
For some people, wearing all black is depressing, boring or too minimal. I beg to disagree. It's not only functional (what are stains?), but understated chic. There's a way to keep it monochromatic without looking like you're attending someone's funeral.
There are hundreds of different textures to keep an eye out for when finding and styling black pieces. Exotic leathers (crocodile, snakeskin), furs, calf/lambskin leather, rayon, cotton and spandex. Each piece has a different shine, sheen and fit, making each piece unique - even if it's on the same end of the grayscale spectrum.
For ultimate edge, I look for unexpected cuts in structure and silhouette. A wrap skirt with asymmetrical hemline is a form-flattering surprise. A basic button-down top can become a one-of-a-kind piece when plastic triangles replace the traditional rayon fabric near the shoulders. Cut-out boots are still the rage. Pops of skin are welcoming - take a basic black outfit and transform it effortlessly.

I added a splash of red to my usual monochromatic color palette, touched up with hints of gold. I found this amazing, amazing silk blouse in a neighborhood vintage shop and fell in love instantly. The sheer sleeves, deep drape and structured shoulders are a perfectly romantic complement to an edgy, asymmetrical skirt.
