Audition Dresses

As an opera singer I am constantly looking for a good audition dress. The "rules" are different depending on who you ask but in general a fairly conservative, cocktail length, preferably with sleeves... Color is up to you but should flatter your shape and coloring. Ive seen all sorts of looks at auditions and Im not sure your value as a singer ought to be decided based on your attire but first impressions do matter... This is what I went with for today (unfortunately the lighting in this pic doesn't let you see the luscious eggplant color!)... Lets hope the Met agrees with my choice ;-P What do you wear when you want to look your best?

This adorable aqua dress is completely out of season but I want it!! Gotta love Old Navy! Unfortunately they only have 3x and 4x left so maybe some of you lovely ladies can get it and i can live vicariously :)

New TJMaxx in NYC!!!

Today is the Grand Opening of the Columbus Circle TJ Maxx! I was afraid there were going to be hordes of people and I was not wrong! There are a zillion people shopping there right now which makes navigating the aisles quite a nightmare... However if you are lucky enough to score some great finds (like the awesome "leather" jacket above for only $39.99!) the wait for the register is a dream! It looks like the longest line ever but as it is opening day they are VERY efficient and I was probably only in line for 5 minutes. The Plus section is minimal but has some gems including gorgeous Calvin Klein dresses for $49.99. So if you're in NYC and near midtown check out the new TJ Maxx!

Tuesday Tuesday...

Ok so the song is called Monday Monday but still... Felt compelled to write since I am ROCKIN' my $10 leopard print skirt from ReDress! I hope everyone out there is having a great day and feeling fabulous. Im feeling a little jealous because my boyfriend is at the Dead Sea right now... Sigh NYC is just not like that.... PS notice the sexy wrist wrap... care of one very feisty mechanical bull!

I LOVE dressing up so I love Halloween!

OK sooooo if your last couple of posts are how you haven't posted something is clearly wrong! Fixing now!

Halloween was a blast this year! My boyfriend and I got dressed up as old school vampires and were stopped on the streets on NYC's East Village and asked to be photographed! We were pretty proud of our costumes! I wore a ball gown scored on sale at Macy's a few years ago for $60 some rockin' jewelry from Forever 21 and a cape purchased on a whim from Target last holiday season.

What did you wear this year?
