With crazy work schedules finding the time for 'Date Night' can be rather difficult, especially in this day in age where everything is moving at full speed and we're constantly on the go, if I'm not running around to meetings/appointments and events I'm shooting, editing and designing. I guess you can say I like keeping busy, too much so... And now with MaQ + Suz growing bigger and better than ever, it's getting even more challenging to stop even. I love what I do to no end, and have some SERIOUS dreams, but being so driven can have its setbacks. For example, I don't know when to call it quits. Lately, I work 14-16hr+ days, and as exhausting as the workload can be all together, I still feel guilty when I'm not working. Even though I know everyone needs to recoup and rest, I still have trouble with the idea of just 'veggin' out'. I can't sit still for that long, I always feel the need to be doing something. 

But I also think it's healthy to take the time to spend it with the ones you love. We don't do a constant ritual of any kind unlike some of my girlfriends who do a weekly date night of some kind, but we like to mix it up. Some nights we'll just run to some restaurant in our neighborhood for a quick bite, and then some nights like in today's post, we'll play dress up and go somewhere like Indochine (my ALL-TIME FAVORITE restaurant) or somewhere a little fancier. How insanely gorgeous are both of these statement pieces from To Be Adored?!

I wanted to show you guys two different ways to dress up for date night. Like myself, sometimes you want a more chill laidback look and then sometimes something a bit dressier for a different occasion. The first look is a gorgeous lilac dress with black accessories like ankles boots and a leather jacket for those chillier nights. I kept it a little spunky as I love to bring an edge to a girly dress, but you could also wear this dress with a polished hair bun and nude heels... even to a wedding! The dress is that incredible with a great range of ways to style, it's a great addition to any gal's wardrobe. Notice the matching material on the sleeves of the second look's shirt? I was so in love with how well each statement piece complemented each other and how versatile each one was too. Each garment is by London designer, To Be Adored and from their new SS17 collection. I styled the graphic (German cartoon) shirt with a pair of bell bottom crop jeans, patent slingbacks with added flower hair clips to bring a playful side to the look, and a vertically striped blue and gray suede bucket bag. I like to bring out the pop of colors from graphics within an outfit, which is why I chose different blue hues. What's your ideal date for date night, ladies? Are you more inconsistent like we are, where you just try to fit it in when you can, or are you more dedicated to keeping some kind of ritual? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this! Thanks for stopping by, hope you guys enjoyed these two different 'Date Night' looks! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday, catch you Tuesday with a brand new post about MaQ's new diet! Stay tuned! :)

Hey, everyone! In today's post, I'm featuring all my looks from NYFW! A total of 7 different outfits, you can shop similar pieces from each day by following the links through text and/or image. This season I went with a lot of different accessories from bags to shoes, to trendsetting wear, but I think the biggest challenge during fashion week in February is the art of layering. You don't want to be too cold outside yet you also don't want to be sweating your mind off inside either! And yes, there's the task of limited space where you sit, watch and work, so bringing too much of a bulky coat can definitely get in the way. Lastly, Mother Nature did not want to cooperate with us fashionistas, lol. Yes, it may not have been super cold, but the snow, rain, wind, and then some definitely presented a few setbacks when it came to making outfit decisions, ideal transportation settings, and more. What's your favorite outfit out of the bunch? Stay tuned for one last post covering NYFW, this one will be on events and all the amazing people I met last week! :)

NYFW has taken the city by storm, literally. And I'm having way too much fun. It has by far, been the best season I've experienced, in more ways than you'll ever know and I cannot wait to share everything about it with you guys! If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you may already have had a little sneak peek into my New York fashion week adventures. :)

On Day 1 of fashion week, I was photographed outside the shows by WWD & Getty Images. Not a shabby start, am I right? I also attended three back-to-back shows that day which will be coming up next on the blog! Last season, I compiled all my experiences into one post, but this time around and with my blog's focal point being toward fashion + style as of late, I definitely have a TON of NYFW content coming your way. And a lot of my experiences are first-time, so I'm really excited to get it up and ready for you! 

About the look - been wearing my favorite black belt coat again by Assembly New York. The knitting dress by Zaful has a lace panel with cut-outs on the sleeves, which I styled with an old pair of AE distressed denim jeans and my latest pair of black boots by Steve Madden. But the apple to many eyes? This gorgeous fruit shaped zip around crossbody bag by Dress Lily. If you guys haven't checked Dress Lily out, you should. They really have great quality items at an affordable price.

Turquoise, Wool, and Leather – Introducing LuvIt!

WEARING: GENUINE PEOPLE HIGH SLIT WOOL SHIRT SWEATER |
DRESS LILY LEATHER BIKER JACKET | MOST WANTED USA TIFFANY SATCHEL

In this day and age of technology, we rely on our phones for almost everything. From texting to social media, to video games and even shopping, I too can say I've been using my iPhone for these reasons, specifically many of my fashion needs aside from work-related ones. Apps are a terrific way to not only avoid hectic crowds and waiting in long lines at stores, but to also find great deals and to get what you're looking for efficiently and effectively. Ever see an outfit post on Instagram by one of your favorite bloggers and immediately want whatever it is they're wearing? Exactly. And what if I told you I discovered an app that pays you to shop?

LuvIt is the app that "luvs" you back. When you set up a style profile, you can automatically sign up using your Instagram and/or Facebook, letting you discover trends your friends are shopping for. The ability to create collections, which are folders filled with items you're "luving" at the moment, gives you full control over your feed. I "luv" that you can follow brands and people for specific categories so that you only see products on your feed that are truly relevant. Basically, less white noise. You can also find new brands each week, in addition to the 70+ that LuvIt already has available to shop from. Similar to other social media apps, you can like/heart (or "luv") products from the brands and friends you follow. The best part? Each time you make a purchase, you earn money back. Yes. You read correctly. And whenever someone else shops something you've "luved", you also make money. How cool is that?!

My most recent purchase through LuvIt was this gorgeous wool shirt sweater from Genuine People, and the whole process down from the ordering to the shipping, to the packaging and quality of the dress was stellar. The wool's dark charcoal nearly-black color complements with one of spring's hottest trending colors: Turquoise. Most Wanted USA is a handcrafted leather handbag and accessory line based in NYC for everyday wear and I absolutely adore this brand. The stunning, matching turquoise accessories – first with the Tiffany satchel in genuine suede and second the western leather belt are wonderful transitional accessory pieces for winter into spring. I believe a pop of color can lively up any kind of look, even mixing colors within different seasons like in this outfit. Being a fan of the socks and sandals trend, I couldn't help but style the wool dress with wool socks. Sometimes matchy-matchy does work!

The LuvIt app is available for download in the Apple store, and you can follow my collections/profile at @suzanne.spiegoski! Check it out and see which current and upcoming trends are happening right now! Believe me, you'll be having fun in no time... happy shopping! :)

Season's Greetings! The last month of the year is always crazy and with the holidays around the corner, I've never been so busy with work! It's amazing I'm somehow able to manage it all with only 24 hours in a day, where even though it never feels like I'm doing enough with day-to-day meetings, events, photo shoots, and creating + editing content, I feel really good about where I am heading in my career. It finally feels right!

With that being said, I have some exciting news! I'm going to be a fashion blogger mentor for students in New York City who are passionate in a career such as mine, where I'll be giving personalized feedback on how I come up with creating content, finding ways to drive traffic to my blog and how I earn revenue from it. I am incredibly honored to do this as I've worked with children in the past as a figure skating coach. It's remarkable how everything always comes together. I'll be sharing more on this in the next couple of weeks - I'm very excited for this opportunity!  

Lastly, today's look is brought to you by this stunning Dress Lily collarless ombre faux fur coat. Isn't it darling? I paired this shaggy coat with BDG jeans (my fav from this year), Aldo studded boots and big silver hoop earrings. I like to keep a fierceness in my style because I can be an intense person! It's who I am, no apologies. To heighten the look and make it a little kinky even, I improvised with a wrap-around choker and used it as a belt! The handbag is from Madora and the aviators are by this really cool brand called, Fello Eyewear. You guys should go check out their sunglasses. Should you buy a pair, use my code, 'suzannespiegoski' to save 15% off your purchase!
