Somewhere Over The Rainbow with Flora + Mia

Flora Mia FashionBillie 4

I’m a huge fan of jumpers and rompers, anyway I can get out of the door quickly and looked polished is ideal. My colorful tuxedo jumpsuit today, is a complete outfit in one. Simply add the right shoes, jewelry and go! The snakeskin print has hits of blue throughout, so I added my cobalt pumps to make the subtle hues pop.

Jumpers are also very transitional which is great for me running around the city. This is my look today during my commute.

WHOO…Owls In Dumbo, Brooklyn

My snow day searching for the Dumbo Owls was quite an adventure!!  We went over the river and through the woods, to find the amazing street artist Craig Anthony Miller’s Owl mural in Dumbo, Brooklyn.  It was a blizzard outside which made it all the more exciting. There is something so exhilarating about the chilling wind on your skin, silence in the streets, the newness of it all.

Out of nowhere a white field covered in snow appears, shining brightly across the street we see the owls…

Camel, Cream and White all over:)  The simplicity of these three pieces make them fit together effortlessly.  It also makes todays look very easy for you to recreate with pieces you already have in your closet.  Make sure to add your own flare with a statement shoe.

FashionBillie Bit:  Cheetah vs. Leopard… Cheetah print is a solid black print. Leopard is the partially closed black print with brown spot in the center. I’m a leopard girl myself.

Union Square Cafe

Union Square Cafe New York

One of the many amazing things about New York is all of their yummy and diverse food. After a day of exploring I stumbled upon what I thought was a quaint cafe. To my surprise it was one of America’s most acclaimed and popular restaurants, Union Square Cafe!

Their Whole Wheat Pappardelle and Cara Cara Orange Salad is to die for!! They also make a mean Old Fashioned. The perfect drink to warm you on these cold New York Days. Make sure to check out Union Square Cafe while in the City, they serve American cuisine using local ingredients.

ROAR

Chaser Brand

One thing I am learning very fast is… when it’s cold, you get creative. My original outfit today featured my fave Donna Karan metallic oxfords. They are so very comfortable, as all oxfords should be. However, as the snow began to fall I realized bare ankles were a bad idea.

For todays Central Park exploring outfit, I traded in my oxfords for my combat boots and doubled up my over the knee socks for a nice leg warmer. I dressed up my ROAR Chaser Brand T-shirt and wool J.Crew cap with an unexpected tuxedo blazer.
After the photos I quickly found my parka and ran to the nearest thawing area. He, he:)

FashionBillie Bit: Back in the day (a.k.a 17th century), men’s shoes were cut smaller than their feet to match the fashion of the time…. wait for it… wait for it… To have the appearence of smaller feet!!! No lie! So as you can imagine men’s shoes were not comfortable until the ol’ oxford came along! The oxford was one of the first comfortable men’s laced shoes.

I found my ROAR T-shirt on Rue lala where I get lots of great pieces for a steal. Click Here to get deals on Rue lala

Get Fit in 2015 With Class Pass

Class Pass Houston

New Year, New Booty!! If you are like me and love working out or maybe just trying to stick to those New Year’s resolutions, then I have a treat for you. Two words… Class Pass.

I am one of those odd birds that loves working out but I also get bored very easily so love variety. I’m not talking legs one day, chest the next. Think fun workouts like Krav Maga, aerial yoga, going for a hike or maybe something simple like Pilates. Anything that keeps my body moving and has me looking forward to slipping into summer swimmies.

Class Pass does all of this and more by getting you into best fitness studios in Houston each month. Added bonus…They are already in New York, LA and the Bay, lol. Located in several cities across the U.S. Class Pass allows you to work out anywhere!

For my first Class Pass today I tried Rock Body Pilates. This is a reformer machine class, so low impact with maximum burn! LOVE

The Miracle Dress

miracle

[mir-uh-kuh l]

The word “miracle” is often used to characterize any beneficial event that is statistically unlikely but not contrary to the laws of nature, or simply a “wonderful” occurrence.

This dress from Tres Chic Boutique, my CultureMap Holiday Pop Up Shop companion, is just that, a “wonderful” occurrence!

Standing in my dressing room I overheard a woman exclaiming, “This dress is a miracle! I haven’t felt this beautiful in ages!” I of course popped my head out of the dressing room and asked for one in every color. To my surprise this “miracle” dress was just what I was looking for as well. The fabric is forgiving, yet sexy, while the top asymmetrical overlay gives it a modern vibe.

So what makes this dress so miraculous? The woman and I had totally different body types and a age difference of about fifteen years, yet this dress was perfect on both of us! Talk about Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants!

Don’t believe me? Try the “miracle” dress for yourself this weekend at Tres Chic Boutique during the CultureMap Holiday Pop Up Shop.

Weekend Warmth: Day to Night

Weekend Warmth Fur Vest

Something about that chill in the air that makes Texas women pull out their fur!  No joke, I was at an event last night and every woman was wearing fur, in some form or fashion.  So with winter on her way I created the perfect Furrrr…. It’s cold out here, look for you today.

This weekend warmth look will take you from day to night, with multiple shoe options.  Black on black will streamline your look, while the leather detailing along the side of the leggings will elongate the leg creating a slimming affect.  Pearls play up the furs glamour element, while the structured ring gives the look a bit of edge.

FashionBillie Bit: A fur piece is a statement in itself. I suggest keeping the rest of your outfit simple, yet sophisticated.
