Hello Dolls,

Today’s post is going to be short and sweet because I have a few amazing things in the works, so stay tuned ;).

My husband hosted a car meet at his bakery, Classic Bakery, and I wanted to dress the part. I knew I had to involve leather of some sort. What’s better than my new river island faux leather jacket from ASOS? I was so excited that I finally got to wear it because I am absolutely in love with this jacket, and it is perfect for early spring! It’s fitted, which for me is a must. It has gold zippers, tufting, and an amazing faux fur collar – what else can you ask for in a leather jacket? The one that I got available here is almost sold out in all the normal sizes, but it’s available in other colors here and here. It runs a tiny bit small, so be careful, mine is a US size 4. Check out the end of this post, I added a few alternative leather jackets for spring. Click on the images to go directly to where to buy them.

Thanks for reading!

Hello Dolls,

When it’s cold outside and you can’t seem to stay inside on a Friday night, what do you do? You pull out your favorite over the knee boots, pair them with a vegan leather skirt, and top it all off with a faux fur coat to keep you warm and fabulous! At least that is what I did this past weekend. We went out for a friends birthday in 10 degree weather, and guess what, I was nice and toasty! I actually started out the night wearing tights under the skirt and then had to take them off because I was getting a little too warm.

Because I am so obsessed with over the knee boots, and because I love all of my readers so much, in my next post, I’ll be listing a range of the latest over the knee boots with links to purchase online!  I personally think I’m in need of another pair, so I may join in on the spree 😉

Thank you for reading!

Hello Dolls,

I recently came back from an absolutely fabulous vacation to Miami and the Caribbean. It was so nice just to get out of the frozen tundra that I have been stuck in for the past 2 months. Miami is probably my husbands and I’s favorite city. Every time we go, we have an amazing time. We love the beach, the shopping, the restaurants, and the nightlife. This was our first trip with just the two of us. In the past we have gone with friends, so it was nice to just spend some quality time together. In the past when my husband used to go he would stay at Fountainbleu, so this time we decided to try one of the newer resorts, so we opted for the SLS. The hotel was built just a few years ago and is the old Ritz Plaza hotel which was gutted and redone. It actually still has the original Ritz Plaza sign and has kept the Miami Art Deco feel as you will typically find in South Beach. I definitely recommend the hotel if you’re looking for a posh and trendy atmosphere, and the service was impeccable. I typically love staying on Collins in south beach since it is walking distance to the restaurants and shopping, but far enough from the craziness on Ocean Drive. We did the usual: went to the beach, the pool, shopping, and went out to dinners.

My favorite place to shop is Lincoln Road even though some of my favorite one-of-a-kind stores, like Follies and Astoria, are no longer there. I usually don’t leave disappointed. Also, Bal Harbour is normally the mall that I would go to, but this time we decided to check out the Miami Design District because the Hermes store moved there and I absolutely had to go there. The Design District is not as gorgeous as Bal Harbour and I didn’t see quiet as many Bentleys and Birkins, but all the top brands are there like Hermes, Louis Vuitton, Celine, Christian Louboutin, etc. Uber in Miami is super cheap and it was a short Uber ride from SLS.

We had breakfast every morning at the outdoor restaurant at SLS. For lunch on Thursday we went to La Sandwicherie because my husband is obsessed. On Friday we went to Sushi Samba, it was good, but the one in Las Vegas is better. For dinner we went to our favorite restaurant in the world…..Prime One Twelve. The food there is heavenly and it’s fun to stargaze, but be prepared to wait to be seated even if you have a reservation. Friday night we went to Villa Azur and were a little disappointed! The food was nothing compared to Prime One Twelve, but then again can you really compare anything to Prime One Twelve? Also they seated us at one of those tables where the neighboring table is about 5 inches away and we hated it. The service felt like they were trying to get us in and out, all of our food came out a little too quickly for it to be made to order. I do have to say the place is gorgeous, so if you are ever in Miami stop by Villa Azur, have some drinks, take some pictures, and then go eat somewhere else.

This is a long post with lots of pictures thank you for reading!

Hello Dolls,

As the days get shorter and the sunshine limited,  I decided to throwback to my favorite weekend this summer. I love to travel and experience new things, but somehow every year my husband and I end up in LA, Miami, Las Vegas, or all of the above. We recently discovered south of France, but given the distance, a weekend trip to Monaco wouldn’t suffice. When we got the idea to surprise our cousin, Ninelia, for her birthday in Las Vegas, there really wasn’t much thought. I don’t think I can ever describe the craziness that happens when Nini and I get together, our times together are always unforgettable. Put us together, and no matter where we are there is sure to be some crazyness. So me + Nini + Vegas seemed like perfection. We stayed at the Aria, which is one of my favorites. It was my second time there, and I love the location, its in the middle of everything and its connected to the Shops at Crystals and the Cosmopolitan,

We got there on Friday morning so we could be there before Nini and Vic got in from LA. I was so excited for them to get there, I couldn’t sit still because Nin really had no idea we were coming. When they finally checked in and got to their room, Areen and I, with our bouquet of pink balloons, knocked on their door and the crazies began when Nin opened the door with a reaction I will never forget.

We spent our first night having dinner at Nobu and resting up for the next day. I’ve been to the one at the Atlantis in the Bahamas and the one in Miami, but this was my first time at the one in Vegas, and as always, I was not disappointed.

Saturday was when it all really began. We want to Drai’s Beach Club and pretty much turned the place upside down. I don’t think there was any other table there that was having nearly as much fun as we were. When I said we turned the place upside down, I meant we literally turned everything upside down, everything at our table. The ice, the soda water, the lemons, the limes, the orange juice….all got dumped on someones head. Everyone around us was just staring at us wishing they were having that much fun. Unfortunately, Drai’s did not feel the same way so they asked us to leave because we were making a “mess”. We decided to continue our party in the limo on the way back to the hotel.

Areen and I decided to stay in Vegas for one more night because that weekend was also our 4th wedding anniversary. We celebrated by going to the High Roller Ferris Wheel and then having dinner at the Eifel Tower restaurant at Paris. I was surprised at how beautiful the view was, it overlooked the fountains at the Bellagio, so it was a perfect romantic dinner to celebrate our anniversary and a perfect end to a perfect weekend.

IMG_0860.JPGHello Dolls,

I have been a little behind on my posts, but I have some amazing news. God has truly blessed our family with the most precious gift, and I am now a proud auntie to the most beautiful baby girl. Over the last few days I have been a little busy soaking in the excitement, and have been spending every minute of my time watching her first few days of life.

Last week, I spent an afternoon in Annapolis, MD with my husband. He and my father in law own one of the premier bakeries in the Washington DC area called Classic Bakery. We made the trip to deliver a wedding cake, so we figured we would take advantage of our time there to walk around and enjoy some delicious Maryland blue crab. We went to Phillips for dinner, and since this was kind of an impromptu trip, I stuck to some comfy fall basics.

Denim is so in this season! I was in love with this shirt when my sister gave it to me, and immediately I knew It was the perfect fall top for a casual day out. Paired with what I believe are the makers of the best leggings in the business, Lululemon. Originally they came out with their first variant and had issues with the transparency, but since they have reworked the material so they are now nice and thick which cover your under garment extremely well!

My Steve Madden boots that I’m wearing are one of my favorites. I actually bought them for a Halloween costume when I was Lara Croft, and never did I think that I was going to get this much wear out of them. I’m not big into flats, and actually didn’t own flats until I met my husband, but these boots are amazing and are my go to when I am feeling casual ;). Plus, boots are one of my favorite accessories for fall!

What is your favorite fall accessory?

Hello Dolls,

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so whether you are a survivor, you know a survivor, or you’ve lost someone to the disease, it’s very likely that you have some sort of connection to this horrible disease. Breast cancer awareness month is close to my heart because my grandmother is a breast cancer survivor. As part of the BCA campaign, many companies have released products where they are donating a potion or all of the proceeds to a breast cancer foundation. So why not shop for an amazing and powerful cause and help fight this disease!

Here are some of my favorite products that all have charitable ties. For more products check out the Estée Lauder Companies Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign. And of course if you are not in a shopping mood, you can always donate to one of the many wonderful Breast Cancer foundations.

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!


Masha

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.

.10636759_10154559413855582_4157384617304596460_o 10700630_10154559414635582_3087158070276679044_o

10548070_10154559414010582_5564951048245165831_o

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.

10572054_733014003435130_1142944053277807823_o10694413_10154559421765582_8849426619210143504_o

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 World!

I am so excited to finally launch my blog! I have been working for months to get it up, and I am so happy to share with you my new logo and brand, Masha Gabriella. You will notice a number of changes and tweaks in the coming weeks, so bare with me as I shape my blog into what I hope to be the ultimate domain for all things Fashion. As the summer comes to a close, I have the absolute honor of announcing that I will be an auntie when my sister gives birth to her daughter in early October. From multiple weddings, my trip to Las Vegas, meeting an amazing makeup artist, and going blonder, this has been a very eventful summer and I can’t wait to fill you all in on it.

Here is a little sneak peak of what I have been up to:

My blog will be about me and how I take life one fashionable day at a time. Fashion is my addiction so you will see a lot about outfits that I put together, find online, in stores, and pieces that I think everyone should have. Do you read magazines, online blogs, watch TV and see outfits and then wonder how can you bring that into your closet? Well let me be your guide! Check back often because I’ll be posting lots of fashion advice and talking about the things that are in my closet, how I update my closet every season without spending a fortune, and how I keep my style fresh.
