Chicken Enchiladas LITE!

This recipe is so good. 
The first time I had it I wanted seconds..and thirds...and I didn't even know it was a lite version!
{thank you to my sweet friend Julie who first made these for me!}

Chicken Enchiladas Lite
1) 4 cooked, chopped large skinless, boneless chicken breasts
2) 2 cups (8 oz.) shredded reduced-fat 4-cheese Mexican blend cheese
3) 1 2/3 cups plain fat-free yogurt (I used Trader Joe's)
4) 1/3 cup butter, melted
5) 1/4 cup chopped onion
6) 1 tablespoon minced garlic
7) 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
8) 1 can condensed reduced-fat, reduced-sodium, Healthy Request Cream of Chicken soup, undiluted

9) 1 can chopped green chiles 
10) 3 fresh, chopped jalapenos
11) 8 (8 inch) corn tortillas
12) 1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese
13) 1/4 cup chopped green onions

-Preheat Oven to 350 degrees
-Combine first 10 ingredients in a large bowl. Remove 1 cup of chicken mixture and set aside.
-Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Working with  1 tortilla at a time, heat each tortilla in the pan (5 seconds) until soft. Remove from pan and arrange 1/2 cup chicken mixture down the center of the tortilla.
-Roll up tortilla and place seam side down in a 13X9 inch baking dish coated with PAM.
-Repeat process with remaining tortillas.
-Spread the reserved 1 cup chicken mixture evenly over the top of the enchiladas and cover with foil to put in the oven
-Bake for 20 minutes then uncover and top with sharp cheddar cheese and green onions. Bake an additional 5 minutes or until cheese melts and is bubbling!

Combining first 10 ingredients- looks a little questionable...
Fresh Jalapenos, love me some spicy!

After baking for 20 minutes, add cheddar and green onions to the top and bake an additional 5 minutes!

Post Oven- ready to enjoy!

Now, I know you are thinking...well the cheese, the butter, the tortillas, this isn't exactly a diet recipe...
BUT, if you are craving some enchiladas and can trade out the sour cream for fat free yogurt, the full fat cheese for the reduced fat cheese, and the corn tortillas for the flour...
You're being better than you would have been at MiCo.
Just sayin'
These enchiladas are divine!

Cook on...

Goldilocks iPhone

So what's a diva to do when the golden iPhone comes out?
Get it. Duh.

I just got my beautiful new Goldilocks iPhone in the mail a couple of days ago...
but now I'm on quite the hunt for a case.
I wish there was some super chic case where you could still see the gold...
but unfortunately there isn't.
{at least to my knowledge}

LUCKILY, beauty is all on the inside anyways!

New Case Options:

Cast your ballots ladies!

HELMUT Helmut Lang

Helmut Lang has been one of my favorite contemporary designers for some time now...
Helmut is known for his minimalist, deconstructionist, and often severe designs. 
His fashion house became famous in the late 1980s for its simple but refined designs, its slim suits in black or white, its denim collection, and the use of high-tech fabrics. 
Although Helmut left the fashion house in 2005, the designer's brand still exists with tremendous success today! 

HELMUT Helmut Lang 
The Simple Statement
The secondary collection by Helmut to take a casual approach to minimalism
and it is BOMB!

Take a look at a few of my favorite things...

The Gala Combo Mini Dress ($296) is perfect to go from the office with a blazer to a cocktail party with some sexy heels! 
The Breeze Slouchy Pocket Dress ($184) is the easiest dress you'll ever own. Matches everything and every occasion! 

The Villous Jersey Jacket ($196) shown here in black and wharf is like the best basic jacket you'll find all season. Cozy, yet on trend, you will find yourself wearing this jacket every day of the week!

Show Stopper:

This Leather Shirtdress ($895) will stop anybody dead in their tracks.
It is so fabulously designed and fits like a glove.

Want a black skirt you could wear at least twice a week to work with ANYTHING in your closet see this black jersey skirt ($98!)
What about a black long sleeve drape dress ($240) that hides all your flaws?!?
OR leggings ($230) that fit like they were made for you????
I'll stop now...but seriously I want everything!

The entire HELMUT Helmut Lang Boutique can be shopped here!

Oh my BLUE! Emmy's Red Carpet Recap

said it all this Emmy's!

Everyone is talking about the blue trend this morning after the 2013 Emmy's last night! 
All different shades and styles, Hollywood was workin' the blue! 

Zooey Deschanel, usually clad in prints, wears a simple yet elegant J. Mendel blue dress that is absolutely gorgeous on her!
Maria Menounos sports a midnight blue Zac Posen dress (a popular Emmy's red carpet designer this year!) but what REALLY sticks out is her fabulous jewelry by Lorraine Schwartz.
Tina Fey looked amazing in a tight fitting Narciso Rodriguez gown. Great to see this hilarious comedian show off her feminine side!
Rocsi Diaz KILLS it in this cobalt blue number...Michael Costello custom made this mermaid gown just for her.
Jessica Pare- wears Oscar de la Renta, O M G. This turquoise color is to die for!

another trend seems to be...

Julianne Hough wears a Jenny Packman gown
Lena Headey wears a Alessandra Rich dress 

Both proving that there is a right way to do sheer
{if you have a killer body!}

Some actresses preferred to slay the red carpet with the neutrals, looking sassy and sexy in 
time-less gowns in subtle colors!

Julia Louis-Dreyfus mixed sparkle and shine in this stunning Monique Lhuillier number!
Julie Bowen's gown might of had a little too much fabric, but I still LOVED the Zac Posen dress.
Kate Mara looks so. darn. good. She has a fantastic body and totally rocked this J. Mendel white ensemble!
Taylor Schilling wears this white custom Thakoon halter-neck gown with a huge thigh- high center slit. She also kills it in these Stuart Weitzman heels, I am dying for!

the absolute BEST DRESSED of the evening...

Claire Danes wears a faux bob and an Armani Prive gown, 
that could have worn an Emmy itself.  
She took the plunge forward and backward, leaving the competition speechless!!! 
I LOVE this gown!

Happy after-Emmy's Monday!

This Cocktail Dress calls for...

This dress is too perfect for words. 
The structure is amazing, tight at the top, but cinching in more at the waist and a little flare for the skirt.

The dress itself calls for a glass of Bubbly...

was a gift by the bride-to-be 
and well, she knows the way to my heart!

{find it at Target and buy 6+ bottles for a discount!}

Cheers to a new fav dress + new fav bubbly!

Little Miss Wade's Review of 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target

I mentioned Target's latest designer collaboration with 3.1 Phillip Lim here, when I was talking about how fabulous their fall collection was.

WELL, turns out the Target collab wasn't quite as fab...

I am beginning to think that all of these high fashion collaborations with department stores are going downhill. 
and quick.

The designs by Phillip Lim for the Target collection are, well pretty cute.
Like, I was dying for the cheetah sweater below!

However... I was terribly disappointed as my bestie and I rushed to Target in a panic to grab up everything we could...not disappointed because it wasn't on the shelves...because it definitely was...but because it was terrible quality.

The cute fun bright cheetah sweater in pictures... looks like it could be found at the clearance rack of JCP in real life.  
The material is so thin...

and then there were the purses, that looked similar to the 3.1 Phillip Lim bags...but more like fake handbags!

Overall, I think it was sort of a bust. 
I mean almost everything is still available...

I did, however, pick up one score of a comfy fall sweater by Mossimo that I am REALLY obsessed with... so my trip to Target wasn't a total waste. 
Look at this fabulous long open cardigan with navy piping, so chic!!!
Mossimo Cardigan- $34.99

Don't hold your breath for the next designer collab...nothing will ever beat Missoni for Target!

At least I got my Mossimo cardigan!

Rag & Bone Booties (and look for less!)

Everyone knows that 
Rag & Bone booties 
are like ultra urban bad gal chic.

I think that a pair of these are essential in a fall wardrobe. 
They are going from urban trendy to classic utilitarian
{yet so very chic}.
They are a little pricey ($495-$595) but a great investment you will wear season after season!

If you are looking for the look for less, look no further than our bestie, Madewell.
The Barnwood Boot in "Golden Spinach" 
are a fabulous replacement
{for half the price!}

Keep your eyes on the prize...Booties for fall!

Someone I'm obsessed with:

Eddie Borgo
You would have seen him first in Vogue in 2009
you saw him as runner up for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund award in 2010
...and just this year...
you saw Miley Cyrus win best dressed at the Met Gala dripping in Eddie Borgo.

Eddie is the
We met a few months ago and were quick friends,
He is always sporting a fedora and he is so precious and fun.  

His designs are even MORE fun. 
There's just something about a collection that mixes costume jewelry, rock and roll, and the history of NYC.
It's a recipe for some kick @$$ jewelry.

Eddie Borgo Rose Gold Pyramid Tennis Bracelet via Neiman Marcus
I've been wearing this rose gold piece all summer and mixing it with all my gold and silver jewelry. 
It's. So Cool.

Obviously, it's even cooler when it's all stacked up!

Layer it up, gold, silver, rose gold, black...
it's all amazingly edgy, cool, modern, new and ever-changing.

View Eddie Borgo's full collection via Neiman Marcus or his home page here!

After all, if Blake Lively loves it, we all love it!
