Thank you, everyone, for your sweet notes, funny emails, insta-comments and tweets... This week went live (the little side project that I filmed with Lilliana Vazquez) and- as if that wasn't enough- my new website also went live! 
Michael at elevatid did an amazing job adding photos and projects and really giving it an extra dose of chic. 
I hope you'll swing by when you have a moment and see what I have been up to this year...

I hope you're not sick of me yet?

Style Files TV

This past summer, a bunch of very creative people got together to produce a little show called Style Files TV. A few of my most stylish friends visited Lilliana Vazquez and myself in Philadelphia to talk about fashion, music, lifestyle and beauty. 

I am so excited to share that Style Files TV is live today!
I hope that you will visit today as we join friends Maybelline, Gavin DeGraw, Whipped Bakeshop and Philadelphia Style Mag at Jonathan Adler.  And, I hope if you like it, you'll share it with friends.

We have all been dying to share this special project with you for so long. 
Can't wait to see what you think.
( After you watch the video, don't miss the gorgeous photography by Alison Conklin! )

I have been overwhelmed by the fast growth of the instagram page. 
Because I don't share tons of personal photos on the blog, instagram has been my outlet to share things differently. It has been really wild to watch everyone enjoy all of the behind the scenes of my crazy job and I love reading everyone's fun comments while I am posting from the road. If you don't follow yet- or in case you missed it- here are some insta-highlights from the week.

{ Sometimes I'm on tv. Playing in prada at my Good Day Phila shoot. }

{ Worked on a fun project with Alison for UsWeekly and Oil of Olay. 
She sent me this in the mail. People went nuts over it. So did I. }

{ Sunday morning "research" }

{ Working on some fun things with one of my favorite brands, Estee Lauder }

Happy you have been following along and keeping me
 company during the new and exciting projects happening in 2013.

Penelope Chilvers

I love Penelope Chilvers. And if those pink slippers above aren't enough to sway you, you can visit the Bespoke section of her website and customize your own pair of slippers?! 

What do I want on mine- skulls, palm trees, a monogram? Decisions.

Sorel Giveaway

 Recently, my friend -and one of the most talented people I know- Laura Novak, took a few photos of me for a Glitter Guide feature. While we were getting ready for the shoot, she snapped a few of the shoes we would be using. While this shot never made it into the feature, it remains one of my favorites from the day. 
In the middle, you'll find my Conquest Carlys by Sorel. When it gets this cold and snowy out, Sorel is the only option. While I own multiple pairs of these boots (I know you have seen my "joan of arctics" make many snowy appearances via instagram), this season the carlys and I have been inseparable.

I met the team at Sorel a few years ago when I was working on a project for Lucky Magazine, and they are fully aware of how stylish our readers, friends and clients are. SO, in honor of the cold, we'd like you to have your very own pair of the Conquest Carly boots. Normally $220. For you? Free.

I am really excited about this giveaway because you'll never understand how much I love mine. 

Entering is a quick two step process:

1) Follow @sorelfootwear and @dallasshaw on twitter.

2) Let us know why you want them! Send us a tweet or leave a note below.
(contest ends one week from today. good luck!)

Makeup Inspiration

Every time I see the models at Stella McCartney (above) dressed in their blue mascara, I stop turning the pages of my magazine and just stare for a while. We think it's so pretty in fact, that Ashley and I decided we are going to try it this week. Stay tuned- we promise to share via twitter.

We already gave you a beauty post this week, but on Monday I got to try out a killer cat eye so Ashley thought we should share! This photo is from my instagram (hanging at Saks for the Good Day Phila Golden Globes segment).

When my friend emailed me to say he was doing for pr for SuperTrash I made "thisface", but I do trust his style so I checked out the lookbook. Should never have judged the clothes by the name because I really-really- like some of the looks, so much so that I am sharing my very favorites with you. What do you think?

Simple question. Rhinestone liner- Would you?
I mean, I definitely WANT to, but not sure if I would...

If we do it, here's how we'll get the look:

dream come true

On my last trip to NYC I spent some QT at Dream Downtown. It's always one of my go-to hotels in New York, but Dream is even more amazing during the holidays.

The lobby is transformed during the holiday season and is filled white, wooded scenes (and -yes- even a giant polar bear).  I didn't want to leave the winter wonderland but at some point I had to go to my room. You may have caught some of the behind the scenes from this trip on my instagram, but I wanted to share a few additional wintery photos with you here.
I had a lovely trip to the city for meetings and in between work I got to catch up with friends. Thank you to the Dream Team for treating me like gold during my stay.

Russell and Hazel GIVEAWAY!!

Russell and Hazel has always been one of my favorite websites. It really feels like they have designed each one of these supplies just for my office.
 ( Here it is if you haven't seen it. Am I right? Such a perfect match. )

Above is a group of my picks from Russell and Hazel, the products that  I'll be adding one by one to my little, pretty space.
Because it's a new year, and organization is at the top of my mind, this binder set made it into the office first because if I am going to get organized I may as well do it in style, right?
And here is the CRAZY-cool news, the team at Russell and Hazel and I think that you deserve some organization in your life too. So, they have agreed to send one stylish reader a binder set in black.

To enter:
Step 1) You must follow @dallasshaw and @russellandhazel on twitter.
Step 2) Send us a tweet or leave a note below on your favorite product at Russell and Hazel!
We'll pick a winner next week.

Judging by my inbox yesterday, NYFW is on everyone's agenda this week. 
Packing for fashion week is always a chore, but it becomes especially challenging when you want to pack as lightly as possible.  What items of clothing, beauty products and other must haves are on your must-pack list when attending?

I'm a hopeless romantic. So it's only fitting that I am always a sucker for romantic shades. 
 I love the colors light gray, peach, blush pink and gold together. Meant to be.
