Summer essentials packing list

Most New Yorkers spent their Summer or getaways in the Hamptons. Its such a highly desirable spot to be on the weekend enjoying sun on the white sand beaches, hanging in fashionable cafes with good looking crowd and chilling… You can be in this “paradise” just in 2-3hrs driving away from NYC.  I have to admit it has been changing and evolving there for the past 20 years since I started going there myself. There are so many cool places to go for lunch, dinner, beach or longing with your friends, family or meet some cool strangers. Since you are a hip gal you must always be prepared to look trendy even on the beach while you’re at it. You want to stand out and be a trendsetter and not blend in with the other crowds on the beach.

By bringing these 7 essentials this summer vacation, I can assure you that you will have the successful and stress free time that you have been waiting for.

  1. Something to cover your head- Large sunglasses and a floppy straw hat are a MUST when heading to the beach for the day. Not only are you wearing them because its fashionable (duh) but you also need it to cover your face with the hot sun beaming on your skin (and no wrinkles). No one likes getting burnt on the first day of his or her vacation, talk about a bummer. You wear your face every day so you need to protect it!11216797_10207725760487180_549994325629523028_n
  1. Entertainment: Reading a good book like Tony Robbins Money Master on the beach or on your way in the Hampton Jitney Bus  could be a great way to learn how to budget your vacation and invest for the future. Is a page turner and despite 600+ pages you will be devoting it in no time.  Or you can go to Shirley MacLaine fantasy and metaphysics world with her best selling incredible book “Out on a limb” TR+10376842_10208485538041144_4051824248178770171_n
  1. Oversize towel or scarf: Lay on a very colorful bright scarf with a hip design. You will be standing out simply because of color boldness, and summer prints. This is your new staple to vacation packing! Try one from Boutiqueon57

4. Relaxed Style: Keep your style casual and cool with a fabulous cover up at the pool and your favorite sundress for at nighttime. Choose a warm color like yellow that will bring out your gorgeous tan and will also make you light up the room. Let your hair go natural and get the beach waves everyone loves. I recently got this look from my favorite hair salon in NY L’Appartement on 5 East 57th street 7th FL

  1. Snacks: We all know we can’t make it through the day without a pick-me-up snack. Rawmantic chocolate energy bars are the perfect go-to energizer. The bar is made of all raw ingredients, making the bar dairy free, gluten free, soy free, and barely any sugar. The bars come in vanilla, dark chocolate, and vegan. I could eat them  ALL day.chocolate-photo-8chocolate-11
  2. Something to carry all your items in: A woven chic tote  from Kaya is a perfect beach bag to travel around. The bigger the better! Who doesn’t love a huge tote bag? You can fit everything you need and more in a huge bag like this. Look for one with colored tassels on the side and you are good to go!                                                     koszyk
  3. A light jacket: The beach can get breezy at times, so its important that you bring a jacket with you so you aren’t out of luck when you start getting the ocean chills. Ditch the zip up and get CHANEL reversible  light weight blazer that its casual smart and easy to travel around. Don’t forget about the cold air conditioning inside too!

RENE-OFFICE-24I have always prided myself on being up to date with the latest style trends, upcoming designers, and basically any headlining story in the fashion industry. Much of my life has revolved around looking for inspiration anywhere I can find it, which is why I must give credit where credit is due. Vogue magazine has been a constant savior in my stylistic adventures, and has always guided me to what is in and what is out. The reason I give Vogue magazine my vote for periodical of the month is not only because the informational content is so useful, yet also because of it is a timeless reference for fashion-savvy gurus everywhere.

It is unsurprising that Vogue is in a league of its own. Being established in the United States since 1892, it is one of the longest running fashion periodicals the country and world has ever read. The editors at Vogue take pride in the fact they are extremely influential in the industry and much of what they present to the consuming audience will be swallowed within minutes of opening the cover. I personally gravitate towards this magazine to review the latest fashion shows or collections and to allow my eyes to be graced with some of the top clothing images on the market. I also swear by this magazine for the inclusion of lifestyle articles, relating anywhere from personal health and beauty to historical reviews on influential names of the fashion world.

It would certainly be an understatement to say that Vogue magazine submits only the highest quality material. With photography spreads by artists like Annie Liebowitz and Peter Lindbergh and amazing PR campaigns, this source of glamour review is leaving the rest of the competition in their makeup chairs. Vogue has such a high reputation and such authentic sources that it is a must read for any lost soul trying to find the light towards fashion. I have learned about some of the most helpful styling tips as well as emerging new beauty products from reading this renowned piece of literature every month. Vogue is untouchable, yet I reassure you that I keep an open mind to most other couture inspired compositions.

P.S. I want to hear from you! Do you agree with my choice to keep Vogue at the forefront for magazine of the month? Or, is there another periodical that must be brought to my attention for a close runner up?

Trending This Spring

Trending This Spring:

Spring Fashion Week has come and gone and the first day of spring has passed. With our temperamental weather beginning to settle down, we may just start to see this season’s trends start hitting the streets. If you aren’t sure just what to expect fashion wise for this spring, let me clue you in. Here are the must know trends for Spring 2015.

Sexy Shoulders. Whether you prefer one shoulder, the dropped shoulder or no shoulders at all, this spring we’re spotlighting one of the more under appreciated body parts, the sexy shoulder.

HIPPOCRATES-63

HIPPOCRATES-60

One of my absolute musts this season is the Harve Leger Strapless Navy Blue White Dress. Not only is it spot on as a strapless dress, but it’s also the color duo you’ll see everywhere this spring. This navy and white dress will keep you looking classy whether you’re at the office, a barbeque or out on the town. You can’t go wrong with Harve Leger.

Comfortable Shoes. Praise the heavens; comfort is making a comeback! This season is all about walking on clouds without having to sacrifice style. We’re looking at this season’s most fashionable, but still comfortable shoes.

JIL-SANDER-5

If you like the chunky look, take a peek at the Jil Sander Brown Patent Leather Open Toe Sandal. With a discount greater than $500, you won’t want to pass these up!

If it’s a statement shoe you’re after, check out the Nicholas Kirkwood Flower Embellished Patent Leather Heel. These trendsetting kicks are bound to turn heads with a bright mix of lime and cobalt, while the thicker heel provides the comfort we all love.

NICHOLAS-KIRKWOOD-1

Sporty Prep. Sport your inner prep this spring with a polo style shirtdress. If you’re anything like me and you adore minimalism, then you absolutely must check out one of my very own designs from my new line, On57 New York. Perfect for spring, this lavender and pink sleeveless dress combines multiple trends to bring you a comfortable, shoulder bearing, sexy-chic dress. It just may be the ultimate spring look, if I must say so myself.

1. It may not be the new black but it certainly is the color of Spring 2015. And I can only assume it is a color your wardrobe is seriously lacking. I know what you’re thinking, yellow is just not your color. But my fellow trendsetters and I ask you to think outside of the box this season, girls. Whether it’s mustard, canary, amber or saffron, I guarantee there is a shade of yellow perfect for you!

And if you’re still feeling unsure about yellow, then please check out this Cosmo post: http://www.cosmopolitan.com/lifestyle/a37933/the-heartbreaking-reason-why-you-should-wear-yellow-on-march-27/?src=spr_FBPAGE&spr_id=1440_158233422. If that isn’t incentive enough to get you in this season’s color than I don’t know what is! Because come March 27, I want to see everyone sporting this season’s color for more than the sake of fashion, for Seth! And don’t forget to take a selfie come Friday and use the hashtag #wearyellowforseth and #boutiqueon57 so we can all checkout your new spring look!

We’ve all seen the news and heard the rumors. Yes, this winter is going to be a cold one but luckily here at Boutique on 57 we have a great selection of designer coats that will keep you warm all season without you having to compromise your personal style. Choose from reversible, down, classic, quilted, embroidered and many others to find the perfect piece for you. And no matter where you decide to spend your winter months, Boutique On 57 has just what you need to accommodate your fashionista lifestyle.

After spending the hot months searching high and low for the best deals in designer outerwear, I came across a few items that I could not pass up. My favorite styles this year are fur and shearling options. And I know what you’re thinking, “it’s already cold Kasia, I have a coat.” But what you don’t have is one of these coats. I guarantee you won’t want to pass these up. Christmas is just a few days away; it’s time you splurge on something nice for yourself.

My best deal by far this year was the J. Mendel Paris Ivory Off White Cocoon Mink Fur Coat. Not only was it absolutely gorgeous, but honey, when the price drops over twenty grand you buy it! So why am I telling you about this coat that is sold out? Because I have two other amazing fur options with the same detailing I loved about the J. Mendel option, and they are offered at amazing discounts.

The Dennis Basso Broad Tail Trim Fur Coat is perfect to keep you warm and cozy all season long. And with adjusting tussles and strings, it will be the perfect fit for your body that in a coat can often be hard to find. I also love the flip-buttoned pockets feature, which will save you from your iPhone (or other important items) from falling right out of your pockets, something that seems to be an issue with most larger winter coats. And at over 50% off, who can say no?

If you fancy fur but don’t want it covering your entire jacket, then you have to check out the Love Moschino Beige Black Fur Collar Coat. This is my favorite color outerwear item this season because it offers a sense of uniqueness and has the potential to be the color of the season. And when the wind blows strong, you won’t blink twice with the warm fur collar embracing your rosy cheeks. Oh, and did I mention the price is only $650? What are you waiting for?

Now lets discuss shearling. Not only is it naturally water resistant, but also it offers great flexibility and breathability to keep you nice and toasty but not drenched in sweat once you enter that subway car. And Boutique On 57 can provide you with the best options out there.

If it’s a long coat you love, then may I suggest the Bally Black Shearling Coat? Made of 100% genuine lambskin fur, and trimmed with black fur, this is the perfect everyday option. And again, at over 50% off, is it even a question? But if you prefer shorter options to show off those sexy jeans you just bought, your best bet is the Escada Cognac Shearling Jacket. I love its ¾ length sleeves that will allow you to accessorize with the long gloves that are one of my favorite winter trends. Also 100% genuine lambskin, this item is the perfect Bolero-styled piece of the season. And it must be your lucky day because this piece is over 75% off at just under $1000.

With Christmas being just a few days away, don’t miss the opportunity to treat yourself (or a friend or family member) to a gift well worth the investment. Not only are all of these coats greatly discounted making them very affordable, but they are pieces that will last a lifetime. Get in the holiday spirit and do what us fashionistas do best, shop!

And even better, if you’re a new customer be sure to enter your email address prior to your purchase to receive an extra 10% off.

P.S. As always I would like to hear from you about your winter trends to stay warm and chic. Share your favorite designer coats brands with us and tell us why you like them.

MELODY OF HAPPINESS

This is the resent fashionable trend running its corse throughout the world. One melody suggesting of having a good time. Well… what are we waiting for? It seems so easy to dance to its music. It only takes to smile a lot and automatically feeling good, right?

Not so fast, but for a lot of us it’s a start. Simple as that.  We ache to declare to the world our love to life even if its crazy. “We fake it until we make it”                This pre-optimistic tendency is not lame and harbors some serious grounds to be happy about. “I m happy” trend encourages us dressing well to feel-good. It registers an initiative of expression in our clothes if we love life. We find our joy in softness of fabrics, prints and comfort, and carry ourselves according to those feelings. Its a joy to be wrapped with those happy threads. And for me if I can combine it all with comfort food its a match made  in haven.

When we reach this MELODIC Nirvana it often feels like we want to scream out from the top of the roofs to the world. Because once you dress yourself with this cocoon of joy most likely “everyone will dare to wear the same dress”.

So remember your golden rule of sweet satisfaction always comes from within!
