Look of the Day *Shorts with Tights*

31 Jan

Denim cut-off shorts, leather shorts, plaid shorts, or silk shorts, whatever type of short you fancy wearing will look fabulous with a great pair of tights. I would suggest wearing black tights for a more tailored look or a vibrant color for an edgier look! You can pair the shorts with a blazer, jumper, vest, cardigan, or a lovely silk blouse. Whichever way you decide to rock this look, it’s sure to be a Showstopper!

Alice in Weddingland

29 Jan

 

Say “hello” to ALICE TEMPERLY wedding gowns! I’m on a serious mission to find a man to marry just so I can sashay my way down the aisle wearing one of these stunning wedding dresses. The first dress below is exquisite! I secretly would love to stand with a metal ball in my hand like the model,  just before I’m escorted down the aisle. I’m a bit silly that way and I’m confident that my future hubby will approve of my crazy antics.  I got a chance to visit Alice Temperly’s showroom in New York City last summer.  I must say these pictures fail in comparison to the actual wedding gowns in her showroom. “Simply Marvelous Darling!”

H&M + Spring = HARMONY

27 Jan

 

It looks like H&M and I are BFF once again! As many of you recall I had sworn off the giant retailer after my LANVIN fiasco. I made every attempt to purchase one of the highly coveted dresses from H&M's collaboration with LANVIN. I was unsuccessful and ended up leaving the store with a sad little t-shirt. All is well again with my buddy H&M, their spring/summer collection is on fire! The color palette, silhouettes, and fabrics are in perfect harmony with my wardrobe ideas for the warmer months. Ah, I love when my shopping is made a bit easier. It allows me to focus on more important things like where to find the best cupcakes!

Target & Designer Collections *Sneak Peek*

26 Jan

 

A few years ago, there was a point in my life when I would stalk Target for the latest Designer collaboration collections. Who am I kidding I was just in Target last weekend interrogating one of their red-shirt wearing employees as to when a certain collection would be available. Target will be re-leasing some of their most popular Designer collaborations with a 34 dress collection. Paul & Joe, Proenza Schouler, Libertine, Alice Temperley, Erin Fetherston, Thakoon, Rodarte, Zac Posen and Tucker are just some of the 17 Designers participating in the re-lease. In my opinion Proenza Schouler was the best collection. I adore Proenza Schouler and the quality of the dresses sold at Target were impeccable! The collection will hit Target stores nation wide March 13th!

Elie Saab Haute Couture 2011

25 Jan

 

Oh, ELIE SAAB where have you been all my life?! I'm completlely head- over- heels in love with the Haute Couture Collection designed by ELIE SAAB. You know a designer is brilliant when they can create a glorious collection with only 3 colors. I have never stolen anything in my life. However, if I was hanging out backstage while this collection was being shown, I'd be very tempted to swipe one of these amazing gowns.  My only problem would be concealing the poofy gold fabric bulging out from my jacket and the amount guilt I would feel for taking the beautiful gown!

Thrift Town Lovin’

24 Jan

 

You all know my affinity for second hand shops! Well, last week I stopped by Thrift Town (one of my favorite thrift stores) to look around.  I picked up a cute little straw handbag by Brighton, a lovely knit dress by Anthropologie, and gorgeous china plates by Vogue. My loot cost me a total of $17.00! Not bad for a second hand shop!

The Best of VALENTINO

22 Jan

 

No one creates lush and gorgeous gowns like VALENTINO! He is the Master of couture gowns. From royalty to celebrities, Valentino is the go-to Designer for special occasions. I've had many dreams of walking down the aisle one day wearing a vintage Valentino wedding dress! Simple, chic, and elegant….you can never go wrong with a Valentino gown!

Adidas Star Wars Collection

21 Jan

 

Adidas has collaborated with Lucasfilm Ltd. to create a limited edition Star Wars collection! Initially I was a bit concerned about a Star Wars inspired clothing line. I just kept envisioning grown men wearing an Adidas track suit over their Darth Vader costume, repeating the famous phrases "Luke I'm Your Father"! Luckily, Adidas created a pretty brilliant collection by using their traditional designs and incorporating some cool effects of the Star Wars Saga! The Luke Skywalker jacket and Storm Trooper sneakers are my favorite. This collection will definitely sell out fast when it hits Adidas stores in April….."May the Force be with You!"

Boots of the Day *Hunter Rain Boots*

20 Jan

 

I love my HUNTER Rain Boots! They're smart, chic, come in array of different colors, and keep me dry when it's raining outside. You can find the best selection of Hunter Rain Boots at  Nordstrom or Zappos. If you're lucky you can catch them on sale at Zappos!
