Making Statements in NYC!

I am BEYOND excited to introduce you to one of my very best friends, Miss Katie Lind.  Katie and I have been friends since college and we lived together for a couple of years in Chicago.  In Chicago I discovered Katie’s unbelievable style and her effortlessness on combining nice, expensive pieces with cute classics she found at places like The Gap (which was dangerously in walking distance of our apartment).  Katie and I shared a bathroom for 2 years and I’m pretty sure that every morning that we would get ready for work I would make her give me a full rundown of where she got her top, shoes, skirt, belt, statement piece and then frantically go try and find it on my lunch break.  She has incredible style and I’m lucky to have an equally incredible friend in her 🙂 


 I fell in love with studs after Carrie Bradshaw introduced the studded Christian Dior belt in SATC.  I found a knock off version at Forever 21 and it’s one of my favorite purchases.
My most recent stud purchase.  Aldo flats.  A nice addition to a basic nude pump.  Find them HERE

I love anything striped & nautical.  I especially love JCrew’s maxi strip dress with a bright colored belt. 
Statement Necklaces:
This might be my greatest claim to fame.  I have the JCrew bubble necklace in 3 colors.  It adds a nice pop to any outfit.  Find it HERE  
Gold accessories:
“K” Necklace: I love gold accessories but my Helen Ficalora K necklace is my favorite.  I haven’t taken it off in 5 years!  Find it HERE
Zara peplum top.  Love the classic look of peplum.
Sunnies:  Chanel shades.  Slight cat eye with classic tortoise frame.
****And last but not least – my latest favorite statement:  My new bike Birdie 🙂
Perfect for exploring the city.**** Find it HERE

I hope you enjoyed getting to know Katoo!  Would you like to show off your style on Make Statements?  Send me an email at to be feature in one of my Wednesday features!
