Hello Dolls,

Winters in the DC area have not been very kind as of late, so you may wonder how I get myself through seasonal depression. By updating my wardrobe! Here are my 7 wardrobe must haves for this fall:


1. Leather skirt

I love leather especially in the fall and winter months. This season we are going to have a variety of faux leather items. As much as I love leather jackets and leather pants, my favorite for this fall is a skirt. Like this pencil skirt from Zara. If you look on their website, they have it paired with a hideous sweater. That is NOT what I would wear it with! Sometimes I wonder who styles for these companies. I would wear it with a crop top and pumps, or tucked in button down blouse.

Or this gem from Southmoonunder. Wine colors are my go to shade in the fall, I just can’t get enough.

2. Snake skin leggings

Snake skin leggings like these from Southmoonunder. I just got these last week and can’t wait to wear them with a poncho or sheer blouse. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably own a pair of black leggings, so why not spice it up this fall with a pair in a fun print like snakeskin!

3. Long sleeved crop top

Just because its cold outside doesn’t mean you have to put away your crop tops. I love wearing mine with high waist, below-the-knee pencil skirts, or high waist leggings. I love the sheer on this one from Revolve Clothing if you are looking for something classy yet sexy.

The lace sleeves are absolutely stunning on this one from Forever 21 and its only $14.80.

4. Black Boots

How can anyone ever survive the fall without a pair of black boots? I love wearing my boots with everything: skirts, leggings, jeans, shorts and tights – you name it, I have worn it, and I cant wait to pull out all my boots for the fall. I love suede, leather, over-the-knee, and of course riding boots. And don’t forget how warm these will keep you when you are wearing your mini skirts! I am absolutely obsessed with these suede black ones from Nordstrom! So hurry up and get yourself a pair!

5. Blazer

Layering is one of my favorite things about fall. Everyone needs the perfect fall blazer or even a couple. You have to have a black one that is versatile. I also love the rich fall colors like burgundy, brunt orange, navy blue, deep magenta, or military green. You can be wearing jeans and a t-shirt, and when you add a blazer, your outfit goes from simple to glam in no time. I couldn’t stick to just picking one fall blazer because you can have more than one perfect fall blazer, so click on the pictures and decide which one is your favorite.

6. Leopard print shawl

Layering a shawl over a blazer or sweater is always amazing. If you are not into animal print try another fall color like brown, burgundy, or a deep green color to add a little spice to you outfit.

7. Fall lipstick

Change up your makeup with the season as you change your wardrobe. Red wine lips for the fall and winter are a crowd favorite. My 3 favorite colors are: MAC Diva, Chanel Rouge Allure #40 La Sensuella, and MAC Dare You. Don’t forget to get a matching lip liner because most darker colors will look like they are running if you don’t line them. Diva is definitely the most dramatic one, but MAC Dare You and Chanel #40 are great for day or night.

Hello Dolls,

This weekend, I went to visit my sister in Hackensack, New Jersey. Since she is expecting her baby princess any day now,  I decided I would help her add some finishing touches to the little princess’ beautiful nursery. Saturday morning became a much needed therapeutic session of painting butterflies on the walls of my baby niece’s pink castle :P. On Saturday afternoon, we were invited to a friend’s BBQ nearby, so I decided to spend the last day of Summer outdoors as we will be heading into another dreaded cold winter.

I wore AG Adriano Goldschmied jeans, one of my favorite purchases, especially in the jeans department. They are more comfortable than some of my leggings. I actually bought two pairs when I first tried them on and would definitely recommend a pair for the fall in one of their fall colors.

After the BBQ, we went to an amazing sushi place called Sushi Cruise in Edgewater, NJ. They had a large variety of rolls on their menu and it was beyond delicious, well worth the wait! Also the view of New York City from their terrace is unbelievable, so if you ever go I highly recommend that you sit outside.

Hello Dolls,

Last Saturday, I was invited by a good friend Sim Khan from Brimble & Clark to walk in the Green Cup Polo fashion show at the Capitol Polo Club. It has probably been at least 10 years since I last walked down a runway, so it’s safe to say I had a bit of rust to shake off. I absolutely love blazers, and no one does them better then our very own DC native Sim Khan. Brimble & Clark has truly emerged as a top contender for custom tailored suits and blazers. The fabric choices range from DC conservative, to NY Chic, to Miami vice – so whatever your style, there is a good chance Sim has you covered.  I am extremely selective in the clothes that I wear, and often find it hard to find something that truly catches my eye. Most of the time I can imagine an outfit in my head, but can’t always find it in stores which is why I love custom made items. I have been a witness to the Brimble & Clark process because my husband has purchased quiet a few suits and they are all the epitome of perfection. You can never have enough blazers because adding one to your outfit can always spice things up whether your goal is to appear more professional or fun and sassy. Needless to say, I cannot wait to get my own blazer made, or maybe even a few!

The first piece that I wore was this amazing orange and gold embroidered one-button blazer. Lots of pop and vibrance in an very clean and chic look. This would be perfect if you wanted to take any outfit from simple to fabulous for any occasion from a work function to a night out.

The second one was a more sophisticated houndstooth blazer with slanted pockets, and a pink satin inner lining. Being pink obsessed as I am – I couldn’t get enough of the lining.

This was an event at the Capitol Polo Club so we went with an equestrian chic theme. Under the blazers I wore high waisted leggings , a corset crop top , riding boots, and pearls. I love mixing different styles and I loved the contrast of the corset crop top and pearls. Washington, DC is the epitome of conservative so I had so much fun shocking everyone with a corset under my blazer. I am anything, but conservative so that was one of my favorite parts of the show.

My hubby was also in the show so we got to wear matching blazers which I adored!IMG_046310623304_10154559425700582_4556524191609776689_o 10620047_10154559425925582_2085929123087727175_o

Hello Dolls,

Yesterday my husband and I were invited to model in the Brimble & Clark fashion show at the Green Cup Polo Match at the Capitol Polo Club. It was an amazing event and we were very honored to be a part of it. I will have to dedicate a separate post to the fashion show itself because it was amazing, but I am waiting for the professional pictures of the event. For now, I will just share the outfit that I wore outside of my modeling. How can anyone ever pass up a chance to wear a fabulous hat? I procrastinated a little on looking for one, so when I couldn’t find anything I went to etsy.com and had a hat rush delivered. I chose to accessorized with pearls and simple diamond studs to make my outfit even more polo chic. Washington, DC is conservative to begin with, so the look I was going for was sophisticated, classy, and chic.

Hello Dolls, This weekend was my husband’s birthday, and in true Movsessian fashion, we celebrated all weekend long. I kind of like to make all our birthdays a really big deal!  We kicked off the weekend with a dinner with our closest friends. Friday night we went to Richard Sandoval’s new restaurant and lounge called Toro Toro . The food was delicious and the service was great, especially for Washington, DC, but the lounge wasn’t really happening so we ended our night at Lima.  I don’t know if its because it was Labor day weekend or if everyone has realized that DC nightlife really isn’t all that, but the ambiance at Lima didn’t fare any better. Anyways, on to more important things like what I was wearing: I am usually a skirt or a dress person, but this year because I don’t like to be predictable, I decided I would switch it up and wear shorts. I wanted a classy outfit that was appropriate for dinner, but sexy enough for a night out. Also, being that it was labor day weekend, I wanted something really fun and summeresque before we transition into the season of jackets, scarves, and boots. (stay tuned for lots of that in the coming weeks) Let me know what you think! xo Masha IMG_0280

Hello Dolls,

My husband’s birthday is coming up on September 1st, and I am so excited about the upcoming festivities! Birthdays in our household are kind of a big deal! As I was looking for what I am going to wear this weekend, I was remembering his birthday last year. I loved my fabulous dress from last year so much that I almost wish I could wear it again ;). I got it from Bebe probably a month before his birthday, so when his birthday rolled around, I felt that it was perfect for a dinner with friends and a night out to celebrate my amazing hubby. I loved the studs and the open back with crisscross straps. I paired the dress with white shoes from Aldo that I had also just gotten a few weeks before while my cousin was visiting me from LA. We went to one of DC’s hotspots, Fujimar and were pleasantly surprised by how amazing their service was and how much fun we had – not to mention the food was delicious. Stay tuned for what we do this weekend.
