Hudson River Park Gala

I attended the Hudson River Park Gala tonight to raise funds for the park's beautification and programs. In attendance were Christy Turlington, Ed Burns, Donna Karen, Mayor Bloomberg & Diana Taylor, Gayle King, designer of Guillermo Couture to name a few. Well done event and they successfully raised $2.2mm. As always, I was on the look out for great fashion & interesting people.

Studded Sandals

Valentino Leather RockStud Thong Flat $845

Zara Studded Sandal $129
All spring I have been thinking about the perfect summer sandal. My eye has been on the Valentino leather rockstud thong flat, but at $845, I was nervous to pull the trigger. When I finally decided that I could not live without them, they were sold out in my size. Luckily, Zara saved the day with their studded sandal made with Swarovski elements at $129.  Hope you enjoy them as much as I do! xo, 5th

I love a great tee, so when I found Wildfox couture, I immediately knew it was a match made in heaven.  This brand combines great style and soft fabrics.  Take a look at their website and find your own unique tee. xo, 5th

Robinhood Foundation Gala

Monday night I attended the Robinhood Foundation annual gala.  They are the largest poverty fighting organization in NYC and successfully raised over $55mm this night.  In 2011 alone, Robin Hood granted more than $146mm to fight poverty.  Everything about the night was perfect, especially the fashion and the entertainment with a mini concert from Rihanna.  Loved Rihanna's look!  xo, 5th


Mother's Day Flowers

Alice & Olivia Floral Trousers
Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there! I hope today you feel the love. Remember in March I posted that I wanted these floral A & O trousers? Well, somebody was reading and I get to celebrate Mother's day in them! :o) xo, 5th


Told Ya So!

Looks like we aren't the only ones in love with Zara's Yellow Blazer. Hilary Rhoda was in this Sunday's NY Post wearing it too! Get it here.

Revival of the Denim Jacket

JCrew denim jacket
I know in the last week that I have recommended a black leather jacket, a white blazer and now I am suggesting that we all need to own a denim jacket, but you really do! All three jackets are a must and force you to switch up your look each day and night.  The denim jacket is just so casual & fun, and can be pretty much worn over anything. You probably all still have one in the back of your closet, so I would suggest moving it to the front this season. xo, 5th

White Blazer

Double Fabric Blazer at Zara $89.90
I tend to put a black blazer over most of my work outfits, but with the warm weather here and spring in the air, the black feels too heavy. I invested in a white blazer and it is becoming my new staple. Here are a few different styles of the white blazer. Take a look Zara's double fabric blazer, as it is affordable and easy to wear. This version can pretty much go over anything including a dress, blouse, t-shirt or tank and at $89.90, seems like a no-brainer to me! xo, 5th
