Vita Brillanti

bella ragazza. bella vita.

Weekly Inspo 12.8

Winter has arrived. The city is officially freezing and all I want to do is cozy up, light some candles and watch HBO on demand. If only life was that simple where grownups could do that in the winter.

All I need are these Days of the Week undies from Net A Porter and my life will be complete.

Thank you to the following blogs for always inspiring me:

Rent The Runway

I don’t know many people – actually, anyone in New York City that has a wide variety of knock-out cocktail dresses on hand. My closet consists of working girl attire; cute, stylish, but nothing fancy enough to wear to a black tie event or a company party. Luckily, for all us girls who do not have this amazing on-hand runway we all dream about, we have Rent the Runway. Rent the Runway is a site where you can literally rent goregous designer dresses at a fraction of the retail price ( 25$ off your first rental!). I’ve used Rent the Runway a few times in the past and have been totally satisfied each time. They have a huge selection of dresses ranging from casual to cocktail, to high-end gala event.

I am so happy I have the luxury of having two locations here in the city for me to check out when I need a dress. They also have locations in Washington D.C, Las Vegas and Secaucus New Jersey. Check them out for your next event!

Headed to Philly

In West Philadelphia….(I hope you can finish that sentence, if not go here )…is what I will be singing this weekend. It might sound crazy to some, but I’ve never been to Philly (or had a cheesesteak for that matter), and Jordan and I are headed down there this weekend. Philadelphia is such a short train ride away from the city, yet for some reason I’ve never taken the trip in my 3.5 years living in NYC. I’m excited to explore another city and have a mini getaway with my love. We are hoping to hit up a few dive bars, maybe one nice restaurant if our wallets can take it, and of course indulge in a savory cheesesteak sandwich WITH extra wiz cheese please!

Another thing I am excited for are pictures, I love capturing moments in a new place – exploring the streets and food- and maybe taking a few pictures of myself if I can muster up a photo – worthy outfit.

We are staying at the Hotel Monaco Philadelphia – A Kimpton Hotel and I hear it’s amazing!

Enjoy your weekend!
