Fashion Friday: Olivia’s Sleek Look

Friday, March 7th, 2014

Olivia Palermo is one of my TOP fashion icons of the current day. She really rarely misses and always looks a perfect mix of classic and edgy. You’ll find her face plastered all over fashion boards on Pinterest.  I saw this look of hers there and thought it was a great look that a lot of women with different body types could sport for a night out during these chilly temps! A belted peplum top topped with a boucle jacket (even a nicely structured cardigan would work too) and leather pants (or faux leather), great heels and a smokey eye and you look classy AND cool. :)

Here are some choices to get you a similar look (and how much do I want those shoes from Sarah Jessica Parker’s new line?? MUCHO.)

Fashion Friday: Scarf Prints

Friday, February 28th, 2014

I bought BOTH of these dresses for my trip to Arizona and I really love the bohemian feel of their scarf-inspired prints. Here’s how to pair each with simple accessories for easy packing (same jackt, clutch and earrings)- but alas, shoes will always be my packing kryptonite!!

Fashion Friday: Party Pants

Friday, February 21st, 2014

I saw this picture on Pinterest yesterday and just about died. I ADORE this look- it’s so perfect for a night out, dinner with your love, a party or a special event (say, a book signing party??) Party pants are the best and easiest was to look great AND be comfortable (no Spanx required!)

Alas, I cannot find these pants ANYWHERE.  However, I can recreate a similar look and feel with some easier to find options. Here is one outfit I pulled together using a patterned wider leg trouser pant and simple peplum top.  Paired with nude nails and lips (and a slightly smokey eye in my mind) this outfit looks modern and sleek yet fun.

Fashion Friday: Fashion Week & Looking Ahead

Friday, February 14th, 2014

It’s that time again-Fashion Week!  While all I want to do is think about spring, we can also look towards next fall/ winter so we make smart purchases THIS winter (which is never ending and horrible).  Here are some of my favorite looks from the shows:

Veronica Beard: LOVE LOVE LOVE, especially that dress!

J.Mendel: This gown is SO COOL and HAS to come down the Oscar’s red carpet, maybe on Cate Blanchett?

Style Idol: Marissa Webb

Friday, February 7th, 2014

The former head women’s designer at J.Crew, Marissa Webb has gone off on her own and launched a fabulous eponymous line.  She just had her Fall 2014 runway show at MBFW (see it here) and is quickly becoming a name (and brand) to reckon with.  Her biggest marketing tool? Herself. The woman’s style and manner of dressing is FLAWLESS.  Her tomboy chic look is Parisian yet American, glamorous yet laid back.  It’s classic and streamlined yet interesting and funky.  She may just be my new style icon (plus I follow her in Instagram and she’s as obsessed with her dogs as I am!)
