Samantha, the writer of style blog 'The New York Blond' wore a Kate Stoltz Blush Silk Skirt while on a staycation in Downtown Manhattan at the Four Seasons Hotel. The pastel blush silk skirt with contrast black fine lace and seam trim was paired with a luxe long sleeved velvet blouse and embellished heels.

Chokers have grabbed a large number of teens and twenty to thirty year old's by the throat.. If you walk into any Manhattan hot spot, you're probably going to see more than one or two girls wearing a neck choker. No, it's not just a S&M bondage collar. The neck choker actually has a glamorous history. Wealthy women in the 1780's started wearing jeweled neck chokers. Since then, it has been trendy on and off. Based on the large number of fashionable women wearing neck chokers right now, it's safe to say that the trend is back in full force. It's a cool way to complete your outfit, especially if you have one that compliments your skin tone. I personally started wearing them, and decided to add them to my website after countless people commented on the chokers that I made. A great gift under $50.00 for a friend
In addition to being fun to wear, chokers are a great gift under fifty dollars for a friend. There is no need to know her or his size, since the Kate Stoltz NYC chokers come with an adjustable neck chain. I added the 'Made With Love' tag at the end of the tag, since I want people to feel special when they put the choker on. Each choker is made individually in New York City in my studio. I love creating items like this, so the 'made with love' tag just felt right.

An outfit you can run in! Living in New York City requires a lot more walking than most people realize- especially if you take the subway to avoid rush hour traffic. I am always running somewhere- to a meeting, to pick out textiles or drop something off. If I need to travel from one location to the next while working, I will most likely be running part of the way. Partly because I always have somewhere to be, and partially because it's a great way to stay fit. Since I run so much, I LOVE the women's patent leather dress shoe trend. It's a great way for women to be on trend, dressy, and comfortable at the same time. You don't have to wear heels and you can wear socks. (I think you can be more productive if you are wearing comfortable shoes, so that's another plus.)
Stylist Lauren Abbondola dressed up the shift dress by adding megawatt Laruicci earrings and Guess women's black patent leather dress shoes. Adding a jacket would have made it appropriate for the office, but the styling made the Kate Stoltz shift dress feel young, fun and appropriate for a stroll around the neighborhood. Hairstylist Katie Albright added a 'bend' to my hair, using her magic to make my hair look amazing. Photographer Matt Licari waited till the lighting was perfect and not to harsh, then proceeded to shoot the look in the McGolrick Park location in Brooklyn, New York.
XO, Kate Stoltz
Some people love Valentine's Day and see it as a day to show their loved ones how much they care about them. Others choose to ignore the holiday while some simply hate it. I overheard a classmate bemoaning about the fact that she dreads the day because she is a single girl. I know exactly how that feels.. When all of your friends are receiving beautiful roses and cute presents from the special person in their life, it's just a reminder that you are alone.
This year on Valentine's Day, I bought myself a dozen roses and am spoiling myself for a week. The reason why I am spoiling myself is because in order to appreciate other people, you need to first appreciate yourself and be happy with who you are. I know this is said over and over in inspirational blogs, etc. but it's so true. That's why I think Valentine's Day is fantastic for both singles and those in a relationship. It doesn't have to be a day set aside to show someone else that you love him/her. Valentine's Day can also be spent as a day to spoil yourself and get into touch with yourself. Love yourself and you'll be amazed at how people around you seem to magically turn into better people... it's the power of perception.
