This Blazer is so yummy. Love the color, love the wrinkled cotton, and the draping is to die for. I think the super cold temps outside have made me even more excited for this upcoming spring season. This blazer is perfect for the beach or for a layer in the spring season. You can buy it here.

I am loving the new Elizabeth and James Sunnies. I think I speak for everyone in the fashion world when I say - FINALLY!!! For two girls who are never without a pair, they sure know how to design sexy, cool, but not too over the top (hello bug eyes) sunnies. You can buy these awesome shades here.

Maybe it's the cold weather outside, but I'm suddenly in operation find me a bathing suit mood. Maybe it's a sign that I want a vacation? But honestly, how can I not after seeing these insanely hot new Mara Hoffman bathing suits? These are so amazing. I totally want these. So, when and where are we vacationing? You can buy them here.

OK So I finally decided to write about the bag with a serious cult following. For those of you who don't already know, the PS1 has pretty much replaced Mulberry's "Alexa" bag as the "it" bag. And if you don't know what the "Alexa" is...see my post from a looooong time ago (I think from July or August) and cheer up because I think the bag might still be available. :) The "PS1" represents everything I love about an "it" bag. It's slouchy and cool but isn't too big and fussy. A girl who wants to carry this bag likes to carry something noticeably fashion forward but not too flashy. I love the simplicity of this bag. While the price point may be steep, it's usefulness will "carry" on for several seasons. This bag comes in several colors. I think the Tobacco Tan is a true contemporary classic. You can buy it here.
Sequins! All day every day I want to wear sequins! Nothing is more fun or more girly. I saw this jacket in person the other day and it's sooooo perfect for every girl looking for a great holiday piece. This can be worn over a dress, with a tank and jeans, with a button down and trousers, a silk cami and skirt...the possibilities are seriously endless. The neutral color goes with just about everything! It's so much better than a simple black sequin number you just throw on all the time every season...Yawn...how boring. This statement piece is so much better than that. As always, you can email me with any questions on how to wear it. If you live in South Tampa, you can buy it at Penelope T on Howard Ave. But if not, you can buy it here.

JCrew is my hero. How much do you want to wear these to work? Or out for drinks with sexy pumps and a sexy tank? You could even throw on a sequin top and sky high heels with these trousers on New Years Eve. You can wear trousers like these all year long. Yes - all year long. They're such a great purchase. You can buy these here.

This top is just lovely. So feminine and perfect for so many things. This would look great with leather skinny pants or under a suit. All of the details are gorgeous - especially the draped pleats, which can be very very flattering. You can buy this here.

With the Holidays around the corner, it's only fitting that we all start searching high and low for personalized gifts. Here's something so sweet and different - an initial ring. I prefer this ring on the pinky finger. I actually think it stands out more that way. It's a cigar band too which is so fun! You can buy this here.

Wow. Wow. Wow. I looooove this bag. I also love the name of this brand - "Hunting Season". So clever. This bag would be great for work or it could be your go to travel tote. It's totally chic for this winter season. Ahhh I am so in love. The blue color is so gorg and The bag is huuuuge. You can buy it here.

Ok, not so crazy about the model - BUT such an adorable shirt. Of course JCrew has created something for work or play with lots of detail and character. The black jewels on the neckline are to die for. So cute! I looooove mixing sparkly jewelry with plaid. So creative JCrew. Bravo. Try adding more of your own jewels with this look to add even more sparkles. You can buy this here.
I am Loving this sweater. This is very easy to wear with trousers or jeans. The sequins really add a lot to this look. Plus, if it's made by madewell, you know it's good. Don't be fooled by the low price, this sweater is probably decent quality. You can buy it here.

Ladies, I have seen these boots in person and they are gorgeous. The detail is simply outstanding. I've heard from enough people to know they're actually very comfortable! It's a Love Story between Beauty and Comfort. What more could you ask for in an investment boot? I believe that is why Fendi so perfectly named this boot the "Love Story Leather Boot". You can buy them here.

I know - You saw this skirt at Saks or Neimans or Nordstroms. But, just be practical folks. This skirt is so awesome. I know you don't want to wear something that's sold everywhere. But it really can be worn all year long. This works with a wife beater tank/ballet flats combo, a sweater and nylons/boots combo, a button down/round toe pump combo, or a cami/bootie combo. Aaaaaaand there you have it....four ways to wear this skirt year round. So worth having such a stylish piece from the Queen DVF. I swear she knew we were all going to want to wear this skirt year round even though she put it out in the winter collection. She's just that clever. Oh Diane! You can buy it here.

This stone is called a "Druzy". Such an odd name for a stone, right? Nevertheless, what a fun ring! Double rings with three stones are so fun and can definitely be worn in all areas of life. You can wear a ring like this to work or play. Love the rose gold. Definitely start integrating some rose gold pieces if you haven't already. You can buy this ring here.

Gorgeous Sweater for all things Winter! I find Cowl-Neck sweaters a little stuffy sometimes, but this one is just right. It doesn't hit too low and it can still be sexy. Notice the black glass beads on the navy sweater. I looove that the beads are black instead of a matchy matchy navy tone. This gives more options - like a black bottom. The sweater would look great with a black leather skirt/short/pant, jeans, cream pants in the spring, white jeans in the spring, and brown cargos and heels. You can buy it here.

HOLY MOLY!!!!!!! I am having a total freak out over here. It's like Lanvin took their pieces off the runway and created the same EXACT look for H&M. Are you kidding me? So gorgeous and affordable. Albar Elbaz is a freaking genious. I cannot believe how luxurious every single item in the collection is. There is truly something for everyone here - a simple black dress, a not so simple black dress, a bright dress for date night, a bright dress for a wedding,a work dress, a play dress, ruffled skirts, fun accessories, and super fab shoes. Ahhhh! I am in L.O.V.E. So many details to every piece. The ENTIRE collection can be seen here.
Drooling. I love me some hot pink wool. Especially in the winter! The color of this blazer is gorgeous and totally unexpected for fall/winter, so pair it with your favorite skinny jeans and OTK black leather boots for some hotness. Love the gold buttons. You can buy it here.

I seem to be obsessed with cross body bags lately. They're just so practical and easy and cute. This one is so neutral and awesome. Another great creation from none other than Marc Jacobs. This bag also comes in a great shade of red as well. You can buy it here.

OMG. Love the Color. Love the Fit. Love the effortless sex appeal of the silk jersey draping. This dress is so perfect for holiday parties of all sorts. Plus, hurry up and get it now online at Saks.com or at Saks Fifth Avenue Stores with the 20% off Friends and Family Discount. You can get info about this gorgeous dress and the discount here.

I am in love with these shoes. The suede body and leather heel combo is totally catchy and the shoe actually looks really comfy. The color is totally gorg. This is a great neutral pump for work or play. Perfect for tights, skinny jeans, fun skirts, LBD's, suits, etc. You can buy here.

OMG. Pure genius. Absolutely brilliant. Don't get me wrong, I am IN LOVE with my wedding dress and will forever have butterflies inside when I think about how beautiful it was. But...OMG...A Racerback Wedding dress. JCrew is my hero. It's soooo elegant without being over the top. A bride who wears this cares about fashion but enjoys the classics. I am in heaven. I wish I could see this dress in person. Will someone PLEASE give me some feedback on this if you see it? Wow. You can buy this here.

So if you're like me, you're excited about going on a GREAT tropical vacation during the fall/winter but you really don't want to buy anything that you can't wear for months after you return. Here's a GREAT option. Wear this on your vacation with all kinds of heels, flats or flip flops out. Once you return wear this with tights or jeans with OTK Boots. Problem Solved! The dress is totally chic. You can buy it here.

It's all about mixing different textures this season. So what better way to accomplish this than by wearing a great pair of velvet trousers? These are super fab. A trouser with draped pockets and tapered ankles is so hot right now. A velvet pant is so unexpected and cool. You can wear this like the model is - a simple black tank and strappy heels. But I personally think these pants are begging for a lace cami and blazer OR a.....denim shirt. I know, I know...I can't believe I wrote that either. But it would look awesome. You can buy these GREAT pants here.
Monday, September 27, 2010
I'm back! I'm so sorry I've been on hiatus...I've been busy with sinus infections which are so not chic! So I'm back with a great everyday cross body purse. I love how this can be worn with a cocktail dress or with a pair of jeans to a concert. I absolutely adore the inside polka dot print. So cute! The price isn't too steep. You can buy it here.
Monday, September 20, 2010
I seriously cannot get enough sequins! So girly. So fun. So now. This skirt is heaven. You can even wear it belted or alone. This can be worn now in the heat with sandals and in the deep winter with tights and booties. Oh and how great is the antique gold/bronze color? So delish. You can buy it here.

I'm not loving the ad for this jacket but trust me, this jacket looks AWESOME in person. It's the perfect little black jacket to throw on over anything - a sundress,a gown, a top with jeans, top with shorts, or wear it as a top with jeans. The shoulders have volume but it's not too overpowering and it's flattering. I promise this jacket will look totally chic for years. I definitely think this is a better investment than the faux fur chubs that are out in the stores. They're great but you will NOT be wearing those in the spring...you'll be wearing this. You can buy it here.

Excuse Me...I'm having a fashion week moment. Stunning. Insane. These looks from the Rebecca Taylor Spring 2011 show are beyond fab. Every single item is so pretty and glamorous. Check out this link to view all the looks from the show. I loooooooooooove all the orange frocks. Oh and how about this three tier skirt above?!? Seriously dying.

The Alexa Chung for Madewell collection finally hit the web earlier this week. For those of you who don't know who Alexa Chung is...wake up. She's the "it" girl across the pond and has received Sienna type status for her boho chic style. Not to mention the hottest bag of the year by Mulberry was so adoringly named the "Alexa". I don't live near a Madewell...sigh...but I do loooove their clothes. The store is all about comfort casual cool. The Alexa Chung collection is very true to Ms. Chung's style - a lot of boho chic pieces that are easy to wear. I love this top. The velvet dotted blouse has a polished look and it's super feminine. You can buy it here.

Ridiculous. I looooove a hunter green satin pant. I don't know about you, but I'm really digging the look on the new season of Gossip Girl. There's a lot of colorful pants paired with Sequined blazers. We all know how fabulous sequins are! If you're someone whose afraid to wear a bubble gum pink wide leg pant or a cherry red boyfriend trouser, these pants are great for you because they're a little more understated. Hunter green goes well with almost every color. The color isn't bright and the shape of the pant isn't too trendy. Wear them with a racer back tank and booties out at night or with a tucked in silk blouse or fitted sweater with simple heels to work. You can buy these here.

I've always been a fan of winter white. When worn properly it can look totally chic and weather appropriate. I looooove all of the "boyfriend" style trousers out in the stores right now, but it's rare that I see any in white. Here's a great pair that would look great with a tan or brown sweater/turtleneck and booties. Whatever top you decided to go with, I suggest it be simple and form fitting. Too much body in the top does not mix well with a slouchy lose bottom. As always with anything white, these pants can reappear in your spring/summer wardrobe. You can buy these here.

Here are two of my favorite pieces from the third installment of the Kardashian for Bebe line. This dress is HOT! Actually, it literally is hot...it's made of suede. I just think it really works with everything else out for fall, like the military trend and the leopard booties. This bag is sort of like the new "it" messenger bag. It's great for during the day and for going out at night. The tassels are totally on trend. Way to go Kardashians! You can buy this dress here and this bag here.

Leopard is so hot for fall, which got me thinking...shouldn't we all own a leopard print dress? A dress similar to these two shown above can be worn for work or play. Leopard print dresses are sexy but can still be conservative. I love mixing leopard with bright colors - specifically colorful shoes, bags, belts and jewelry. You can buy these great dresses here and here.

Have I mentioned how much I need big Ghetto Gold earrings in my life? I love Large Gold Statement Pieces, especially earrings. Simple large earrings are one of the easiest ways to dress up any outfit. Here's a great inexpensive pair that's a little 80's and not so small. You can buy them here.

I'm in a denim vest mood today. A denim vest can really add so much to a simple outfit. This winter, try wearing skinny pants/leggings with a fitted sweater and a denim vest and boots. This is truly layering at it's cool casual finest. I am loving the look of this JCrew ad on net-a-porter featuring a denim vest with a sequined skirt. This is such a great way to wear something dressy casual. You can buy this great vest here.

Lately, I find myself wanting to wear two large interesting rings next to each other on the same hand. I like the idea of wearing two of my favorite rings next to each other, even if at first it doesn't seem to mix well. Believe it or not, this look can actually work. For example, pair a large cocktail ring on your middle finger with a different shape ring on your pointer. It's totally unexpected and a nice change to the stackable bangle trend. Here are two completely different rings that would actually work next to each other. I know this trend sounds like a bit much, but it really works when worn properly. Please avoid wearing anything on your wrist (maybe one thin bangle only) when participating in this trend. You can buy the blue ring here and the two castles ring here.
