I'm Coveting..

September 15, 2018
I'm obsessed with Fendi Rockoko boots and impatiently wait each season for the new color schemes and unique embellished styles. There's never a season that I don't fall in in love with another pair of Rockcoco boots (or two). This sock-style boot pairs perfectly with chic joggers (my favorite) and elongates your legs with skirts and dresses. They're surprisingly comfortable and of course, high-quality.

This season, I have two pairs on my wish list, but if I have to choose, imma opt for the logo lace-up style. The signature FF motif detail and contrasting stripe along the collar give these boots a sporty vibe. I'll don these navy blue boots with stylish navy, grey and Burgundy joggers. This color scheme is available in navy blue with a red stripe or black. This color scheme and design is also available in the FF knit sneaker style. Both styles are available at Farfetch.

I recently discovered Fiorucci and love the angels print on the t-shirts and sweaters. I'm not a crop top kinda girl, but this Fiorucci green and white striped cropped t-shirt paired with the somewhat high-wasited Fiorucci black joggers is really flattering and fun (available at Intermix and revolveclothinng.com). Both don the Fiorucci name in pink (I love anything pink). I never wear black, but this styling (seen on revolveclothing.com) is sporty and cute - the perfect loungin' around outfit. 

Another one of my favorite brands is Mother. The casual brand is predominantly denim and trust me, Mother jeans are amazing. The fit is perfect and for 'older' women, the high-waist style is really flattering. 

These Mother no zip misfit pants are the perfect combination of camo and stripes (kinda my thing this fall/winter). You can barely see that there are stripes in this photo, but there is a blue, red and blue stripe along the sides. The pants are medium-weight and soft. There is a zip fly with button closure and elastic leg opening - love the jogger style. The fit is nice (size-up) and the color scheme is perfection. YES, I have a pair and waited for months (pre-ordered) to get them. These pants are available at motherdenim.com and revolveclothing.com.

These Fendi ColibrÌ slingback pumps are gorgeous (available at Farfetch). The houndstooth pattern on the toe cap and checkered pattern on the toe, along with the Fendi hearts embroidered detail on the slingback strap and silver-tone heal are the perfect juxtaposition. There is also a pad on the slingback strap and hiking hardware, giving these high-fashion slingback pumps and sporty vibe. There is so much going on with this design and I LOVE IT!

AND, the other Fendi Rockoko boots on my list (available at mytheresa) - these boots don the stitched Fendi name and crystal-embellished hearts. The contrasting cream hue and black and will look great with just about anything you wear this fall/winter and especially elevate your party look. I've been drooling over these boots for weeks.

I'm Coveting..

July 17, 2018
I'm a little obsessed with Gucci these days. I can't afford any of it, BUT a girl can dream.. This Gucci oversized cotton t-shirt is perfect (available at Mytheresa). There is an adorable fawn print on the front and a floral print with a lady bug on the back. The green Gucci lettering is a nice contrast from the pink. This oversized t-shirt would look great with blue jeans and strappy, high-heel sandals. 

Gucci's leaf-brocade lace bomber jacket (available in major department stores and Farfetch) is feminine and sporty. The striped hem, cuffs, baseball collar and chest patch say "I'm a cool girl" and the delicate lace is pretty and refined. Along side the Gucci lettering, the floral, embroidered appliqué chest patch is consistent with the collection. I like the red piping along the shoulder line and green piping down the zipper. The green, white and red stripes and red and green piping represent the Italian flag . There's a lot of detail in this design - LOVE! There are matching flower-lace jogging pants with red and green piping and striped cuffs - SO Erika Girardi.

I'm coveting these Dolce & Gabbana Amore flared jeans (available at Farfetch). I haven't worn flares in years, but love that the trend may be on the way back in. The three shades of blue denim and denim patches with red stitching give these jeans a fun, loving, 70's vibe. 

I was just in Nashville and had an amazing time. I had hoped to get cowboy boots, but didn't get a chance to go shopping - probably for the best! When I saw these Fendi pink crocodile-embossed ankle boots (available at Fendi), I was happy that I missed out on the cowboy boots in Nashville. This cowboy bootie design is gorgeous. I'm obsessed with pale pink shades and this color is perfect. The low boot leg is nice, cause I'm short and the heel is the perfect height. I NEED THESE BOOTS..

I just learned that Gucci has a décor collection and I want everything! The collection is fun, glamorous and way outta my budget. There's candles, dishes, folding tables, gorgeous chairs, panel screens and cushions. I have a Toy Poodle named Teddy Bear, so of course I'm coveting this Gucci embroidered needlepoint teddy bear cushion (available at Gucci) - SO CUTE! The misspelt 'Guccy' lettering references hashtags on social media. AND it's pink (well, on one side). This Gucci décor collection is inspiring me.

Yup, another Gucci design on my 'must-have' list. This Gucci Florentia tote bag (available at Farfetch) is perfect for fall/winter travels. The red and black gingham pattern reminds me of the classic hunters flannel shirt. This is labeled a mens tote, but anyone can don this oversized, wool bag. Like many designs in this collection, there's a floral appliqué. The Florentia L'orta Di Giove slogan references Florence and part of the Boboli Gardens of Palazzo Pitti.

I'm Coveting..

May 29, 2018
I'm planning a few vacations this summer - The first being a ten day road trip to three southern cities. I can't wait! The downside to road trips is the limited space for luggage, so my crew decided on one carry-on and one knapsack per person. NOT GONNA HAPPEN! My Toy Poodle, Teddy, can fill a cary-on suitcase on his own (he's packing lots of toys). Luckily, I found this oversized tote.. 

I'm obsessed with this Gucci Logo Top Handle Tote (available at Gucci). The light pink rubber is the perfect shade for summer. This tote is HUGE and great for road trips. I struggle to fit everything in my small suitcase, so an oversized tote is essential for extended vacations. The rubber is thick and structured to resemble a vintage beach bag. The front of the tote is embossed with the Gucci vintage logo and the bottom embossed with "XXV", "Sine Amore Nihil", "Summer MMXVIII" and "Guccification". LOVE!

These "Walk'In'Dior" low-top trainers in white canvas (available in Dior boutiques only) are from the Dior 2018 Cruise Show and impossible to get. The canvas sneakers have a rubber sole, gold-tone hardware and don "Cristian Dior J'Adour" printed laces. LOVE! 

These Chloé gold-tone sunglasses (available at Intermix) have a horn brow bridge and earpiece. This design is smaller than the typical Chloé sunglass style and I do love oversized sunglasses, BUT the horn detail is a delicate touch to the otherwise masculine aviator style. I posted these sunnies in a previous 'I'm Coveting..' post and still fancy a pair. HINT HINT..

The latest Fenty Puma by Rhianna collection is "beachy and badass". I'm a big fan of Fenty and can't wait to see what Creative Director, Rhianna, will design each season. 

These surf-inspired Fenty women's Terrycloth dolphin shorts (available at Puma) look so comfy. The checkered print along the back waistband gives these shorts a motocross vibe and this color will look great against sun-kissed skin. These shorts are also available in a vibrant blue and cream. 

My favorite accessory on this month's "I'm Coveting.." post are these Rylee skinny calfskin boots by Chloé (available at NET-A-PORTER). The cloudy yellow shade is gorgeous. These slightly glossed, lace-up boots have a buckle at the top and across the vamp. The cutouts and buckles give these Rylee boots a warrior princess vibe. They're also available in medium - ankle boot style.

The little angels screen print on this Fiorucci Vintage Angels cropped Tee (available at Revolve Clothing) is kinda strange, but I like it. I purchased the Fiorucci sweatshirt in blue light with this print and can't wait to wear it on my road trip. The boxy sweatshirt style is a little shorter than your average sweatshirt, but the material is cozy. I'm not a crop top kinda girl, but I like this print. This angels printed tee is feminine and the pale pink shade is perfect for summer.

I'm Coveting..

April 18, 2018
If you browse my blog, then you would assume that I already purchased these items (all of them). I can't help myself - by the time I curate an 'I'm Coveting..' list, everything is in my online shopping bag, waiting for me to hit 'complete order'! 

I LOVE these Chloé Carlina round sunglasses in silver and powder pink (available at Mytheresa). The braided, fine gold-tone metalwork is delicate and feminine. The frames are round and a bit oversized. The pink gradient lenses are pale and won't protect your eyes from the sun - BUT they look good. I'm a HUGE fan of Chloé sunglasses. The bohemian Chloé attitude is carefree and the variety of 'free spirit' sunglass styles evoke flower child charm. 

I had no intentions of buying new shoes when I went to Chloé on Madison in New York a few months ago, but you can't argue love at first site. These shoes were meant for me AND they're so comfy. The Chloé River wedge boot (available at Chloé) has a military look, but the corset-inspired lace-up vamp gives a feminine vibe. The laces are leather, so beware - these can stretch and break fairly easily. Pair these wedge boots with a t-shirt dress and the Chloé Roy double clutch handbag. 

Yeah, I would go to the ends of the earth to procure a handbag - I had to engage Dutch friends in the Netherlands to get this one. This pink leather micro-bag by Fendi (available at Fendi) is super tiny and embellished with galvanized pearls. I love this Fendi handbag style and am super excited to get my first micro Peekaboo. While it's still on route, I've already made big plans for this tiny Peekaboo handbag.

Each season Fendi brings us new bag accessories - fur pom poms, mini bags (to attach to your bag) and this season, the Fendi Space Monkey (available at Fendi). This little bag accessory dons the signature Fendi print and has a leather headpiece embellished with galvanized pearls. SO CUTE! I put this on my Mother's Day wish list.. I trust my Toy Poodle is gonna come through!

James Smith slides (available at Shop Planet Blue) are simple and chic. The slip-on style comes with a leather or suede vamp and a thin sole. These fit nicely and go great with everything. I have a long road trip this summer and think these will be the perfect slide for those en-route days and site-seeing. 

YUP, I have this one too. The Louis Vuitton Hot Springs backpack (available at Louis Vuitton) combines my two favorite LV Vernis leather colors - Amarante and Rose Ballerine. The backpack is small, but spacious inside AND has a pink lining. Backpacks are having a moment this season (especially mini backpacks). I was super lucky to land this bag. I'd seen it on the LV site, but it wasn't available. I casually walked into the Louis Vuitton store in New York some weeks later and there it was! That was great day, BUT the very reason why I shouldn't visit New York often. I've been selling stuff on eBay ever since, trying to make up for the financial damage I caused!

The Bucket Bag

March 30, 2018
The functional bucket bag style handbag is having an extended fashion moment these last few seasons. This style has been around a long time, but as of late, is making a big comeback and gracing the arms of models and celebrities. The bucket bag is roomy and depending on the size can carry lots of day-to-night essentials. This style comes in all sizes - XS to XL. The larger styles are perfect for carrying all your airplane essentials. Here's a short list of bucket bag styles for inspiration. 

The Roxy denim cage mini bucket bag by Alexander Wang (available at Farfetch) is cute, but edgy. The cage is bleached denim, as well as the denim bike chain style attachment that goes over the round top handles for closure. 

Mansur Gabriel is often credited for bringing back the bucket bag (this time). The light pink shade of this leather Mansur Gabriel bucket bag (available at Mytheresa) is perfect for Spring/Summer. This bucket bag is small-medium size, has an adjustable strap and leather drawstring. It's simple, functional and chic.

Jil Sander was one of my first designer obsessions. True to the brand, the esthetic remains simple and chic. This Jil Sander white leather bucket tote (available at Farfetch) is medium sized and can hold lots of stuff. The structured bag has small top handles and inside pockets. LOVE!

I often peruse the Louis Vuitton Vintage selection on Farfetch. I can't afford anything, but a girl can dream. The Louis Vuitton Vintage fringed bucket tote is festival-chic. The small bucket bag is structured and dons the iconic Lous Vuitton print under the multicolored fringe with beads. Are you sitting down? You should - this vintage bag (so, it is preowned) costs $8,948! 

The camel shade of this leather bucket bag by Mansur Gabriel (available at Mytheresa) is classic. The vegetable-tanned leather is gorgeous and the interior is the same light pink shade as the light pink style. Mansur Gabriel bags are simple, but timeless.

This MIU MIU leather bucket bag (available at NET-A-PORTER) is rectangular shaped, with waved edges. The white leather is hand painted and although MIU MIU styles usually don jewels and embellishment, this classic bag only has a little polished silver hardware - 'MIU MIU'. This bucket bag has no closure and a matching zipped pouch inside.

Brand Obsession - Unravel Project

March 27, 2018
I'm a self-proclaimed professional web browser. Every morning, I peruse all my favorite fashion and beauty sites 'new arrivals' section. I have a massive library of clothing, accessories and beauty products stored in my brain at any given time. Every now and then I come across a new brand and get a little obsessed. My latest brand obsession is Unravel Project. This streetwear brand consists of deconstructed wardrobe essentials. The distressed fabrics and unique detailing take an otherwise basic staple and make it modern-chic. 

I'm already obsessed with sweatshirts and LOVE the Unravel Project styles - they are anything but boring. This light-pink, cotton, oversized Terry hoodie (available at Farfetch) is kinda basic, but the color is everything (I LOVE PINK). The relaxed fit looks super cozy and the oversized sleeves are on-trend.

The Unravel Project white, hooded, cut-out jumper (available at Farfetch) is a bit more interesting and my favorite. I have a similar sweater (with less of a cut out) by Kendall + Kylie and get so many compliments when I wear it. This oversized cutout is perfect for showing off a graphic tank or if you're super fit and fashion forward, a suitable bra (sports bra'ish'). The sleeves are oversized, creating a slouchy affect. I WANT!

The Unravel Project flared, hooded sweater (available at Farfetch) has a similar shape to the light-pink oversized hoodie, but this shade of pale, minty-green is gorgeous. The shoulder cut-out is unique and little sexy. I would don this style in a larger size, so the open shoulder is apparent. LOVE.

Me and sweatshirts go together like cereal and milk - throw in some distressed detailing and I'm a happy girl. A light-pink, distressed sweatshirt (available at Farfetch) is perfection! I would wear this sweatshirt in larger size, so the oversized crew neck shows off a little décolletage. I'm loving this brand, but it's expensive AF, so I'm gonna take inspiration and browse the web for similar styles to appease my sweatshirt obsession.

I'm Coveting..

March 12, 2018
The gorgeous and unique selection of handbags by my favorite designers this season is gonna bankrupt me. I'm addicted to handbags (seriously). I'd give up a whole lot of luxuries to purchase a few new handbags each season. Twice a year, I go through my closet and choose handbags and shoes that I don't LOVE anymore and list them on eBay - this is a great way to make some extra money, so I can afford my hangdbag addiction. I have so many amazing handbags, but the sensation of buying something new, limited edition and on-trend gives me too much pleasure. 

The Chloé Roy double clutch handbag (available at Chloé) was my first handbag obsession this season. The detachable clutches are linked with pale gold-tone rings. You can wear these clutches separately, BUT I'm not sure why you would - that's not exciting. The double clutch design has a top handle and shoulder strap. The shoulder strap is detachable and Chloé will release new colors throughout the season. I love the contrast of the blue strap against the olive green and beige leather clutches, but it's not available yet. YES, I purchased this bag in New York a few weeks ago. This unique design is a must-have Chloé handbag(s).

I'm also addicted to sunglasses. Especially, Chloé sunglasses. These Chloé gold-tone sunglasses (available at Intermix) have a horn brow bridge and earpiece. This design is smaller than the typical Chloé sunglass style and I do love oversized sunglasses, BUT the horn detail is a delicate touch to the otherwise masculine aviator style. 

I'm in to socks these days. Socks that run a little higher than my sock-style boots and socks that would look great inside pumps or sandals. Of course, if you don a sock with high-heeled sandals, it's got to be light and feminine. These Emilio Cavallini metallic striped diamond net socks (available at Intermix) are perfect. I have a wedding in May and plan to wear these socks with my Azure Aniline (baby blue), suede Nudistrong Stuart Weitzman sandals. 

If you follow my blog and personal style, you know I LOVE sock-style boots. These Emilio Cavallini varsity stripe ankle socks (available at Intermix) slightly show the white and black stripe beneath my boots and adds a little sporty-chic vibe. Pair this look with joggers and an oversized sweatshirt.

The Kendall + Kylie Alana bootie (available at Revolve) is special. These shear, suede and mesh boots would look great with dresses and even joggers (yeah, I have a sweatpants obsession too). I'm not sure how I feel about showcasing my toes in a shear shoe (that can get ugly real fast), but they're gorgeous nevertheless. 

Fendi to me is the Porsche of handbags. Most seasons (not all of them), I watch the show, screen shot looks and wait patiently for the handbags to hit the Fendi boutiques. AND the strap you collection is amazing! The embellished straps attach to most Fendi bags - I love this! The contrast of this light brown and green palm tree-like Fendi strap (available at Fendi) against this feminine floral embellished, multi-color Fendi runway shopper (available at Fendi) is perfection. 

Yeah, I paired the two - they don't belong together, but look amazing holding hands. The muted flower print mesh of the shopper and jungle-esque vibe of the strap says Spring is here, nature is beautiful and I look good carrying this unique fusion of Fendi accessories. May the fashion gods shine down (or my husband) and bless me with this Fendi runway shopper and exotic strap.

The Bomber Jacket

February 28, 2018
Bomber jackets seem to never go out of style, but this staple jacket had a major fashion moment in 2017. I noticed a surge in mens bombers last year - no surprise, men and bomber jackets go hand-in-hand. In the 50's, this military style (bomber style) jacket made it's way from, well, men in the military to the streets. Bombers made another comeback in the 90's. In 2018, the rebellious fashion attitude has the bomber momentum going strong again. 

The bomber jacket is the perfect season transitioning outerwear. Light-weight jackets and layers are suitable for the in-between season. You can pair the bomber jacket with anything - really! Casual looks, day dresses AND even more elegant looks. The bomber adds a roughness and contrast to the 'all dressed-up and goin' somewhere special look'. This urban style jacket is relaxed and evokes a 'cool' vibe. 

This Spring, relaxed fit and oversized bombers with graphic logos across the back are on-trend. Yeah, you can opt for the traditional military green, camo and navy fabrics, or you can add a little intrigue as you're walking away. 'You thought I looked good from the front - wait till I turn around'! Arm patches, appliqués and embellished zipper pull tags make this long-time staple jacket modern again. 

This silk Valentino bomber jacket (available at Mytheresa) is everything (really, there's a lot going on here)! I love the pale pink stripe with yellow piping along the shoulders and sleeves. The contrast against the olive green satin is perfect. The black and white ribbed trims are traditional and chic. The color combination is genius. The beaded and embroidered butterfly appliqués on the front, back and sleeves are gorgeous. Truly amazing! This reinvented bomber jacket is my favorite this season. 

The collegiate varsity inspired Miu Miu appliquéd satin-shell bomber jacket (available at NET-A-PORTER) is sporty and fun. The red and white bouclé 'M' patch and glass-beaded flamingo add a playful vibe to the muted shades navy and antique-rose. This relaxed fit bomber jacket has snap buttons and ribbed trims. 

The eagle appliqué on the back of this Off-White satin varsity jacket (available at Mytheresa) is all biker jacket meets bomber jacket. The snap buttons and black and white ribbed trims give this jacket a sporty vibe, while the eagle and flower reference denotes femininity and freedom. 

Another one of my favorites - the Off-White camouflage bomber jacket (available at Mytheresa). I LOVE camo and have seen this print up close - it's vibrant and the high-contrast white logo across the back elevates this design. The slouchy fit feels like you're wearing your guys clothes and the O-ring zipper and durable fabrication are the epitome of the bomber jacket.

From the Thomas Maier Spring 2018 collection - this duchess-satin bomber jacket (available at NET-A-PORTER) is anything but boring. The combination of the gray, camo sleeves, and pink and red striped trims is feminine and fun. The pink flamingo appliqué is cute and girlie. There seems to be many bird references this spring. 

P.E Nation is a athletic clothing brand AND this red and blue striped bomber jacket (available at Mytheresa) will definitely elevate your work-out look. It's a bit 'loud', so I'd opt for an all black ensemble underneath. The toggle zip is branded with the P.E Nation logo and the red stripes around the sleeves are giving me a race-car clothing vibe.

I'm Coveting..

February 15, 2018
I'm in a neutral kinda mood these days - inside and out. I just want to surround myself with relaxing, light hues. Of course, Yeezy is my have-to-have clothing line (I'm obsessed), but Off-White is creeping up on the list of favorites.

I have too many gray sweaters. Nah, you can never have too many gray sweaters. It may seem odd, but gray is my best color. Must be the pale, olive skin tone, pink and peach makeup (always) and black hair that compliments my otherwise muted clothing selection - gray is my go-to shade. 

This Off-White logo sweatshirt (available at Farfetch) is everything I want in a comfy cotton sweatshirt. The small 'Off' print beneath the collar adds a little something. I'm gonna purchase a large and wear this sweater again and again..

I have been searching for the perfect oversized (weekend) bag for months. Someone 'special' gave me the Fenty by Rhianna giant faux fur shopper for Christmas and I LOVE IT! You know when you light a cigarette and the bus shows up - I'm seeing amazing oversized bags everywhere and I want this Yeezy Season 5 gym bag (available at Farfetch). This unisex, calf suede gym bag is huge. It has two round top handles and a detachable shoulder strap for crossbody wear. I especially like the light gray shade of the straps against the pale camel color of the suede. A must have!

Off-White is swiftly becoming one of my favorite clothing and accessory lines. This Off-White camouflage bomber jacket (available at Mythreresa.com) is slouchy, has a retro O-ring zipper and dons the labels logo in bright white across the vibrant camo print back for high-contrast. LOVE!

This white lamb skin lunch bag clutch by Simon Miller (available at Farfetch) is so simple, BUT unique and fun. This is one of those bags people will notice. 

I'm obsessed with the 'sock boot' style. Each Yeezy collection reinvents the Yeezy sock-style boot in muted shades, with casual embellishments and a variety of heel styles. Last seasons style didn't work for me. I purchased two sizes and they just didn't fit right? Season 6 launched a new style that fits perfectly. Contrary to what I've said in the past, this seasons style is comfy and wearable. The Yeezy ankle boot in chalk is perfection. Of course, I already own these boots!

The Yeezy brand is dominating my 'I'm Coveting..' post. I have to have this season 5 rip hoodie (available at Farfetch and Revolve) . If worn oversized, the raw-cut neck line will allow for an off-one-shoulder look. This sweatshirt will look great with distressed denim and my Yeezy season 6 ankle boots.

Valentine's Day Gift List

February 07, 2018
Pink and red are 'A MUST' on Valentine's Day. You should sneak hearts and 'love' in there too. I'm a fan of themed gift-giving and Valentine's Day is the one day of the year you can purchase pink everything and it works (I'm a HUGE fan of the color pink). Heres a carefully curated list of Valentine's Day worthy gifts for your special person..

Chloé Poppy heart-shaped sunglasses (available at Mytheresa.com) are the perfect Valentine's Day gift. Chloé is my go-to designer for sunglasses. The high-quality frames and unique designs are retro and embody the spirit of the seventies. 

Dolce & Gabbana has a wide selection of 'love' inspired sneaker designs. These D&G appliqué logo heart sneakers are endearing and vibrant. The sneaker addict in your life will 'love' these. Visit Mytheresa.com and Farfetch to peruse the D&G sneaker collection. 

These Anya Hindmarch shearling heart-embellished slides (available at Mytheresa.com) are the perfect Valentine's Day gift. Red, fluffy, and cozy says 'I only want the best for you'. The bright red heart against the Bordeaux rabbit fur is perfection. 

I have-to-have this pink Acne Studios Clea bomber jacket (available at Mytheresa.com). I love the contrasting yellow zipper against the perfect pale pink-hued fabric. Acne Studios is one of my favorite clothing and accessory brands. This brand is high-quality - the understated pieces add color and style to your wardrobe (at least my wardrobe, cause it's all gray).

Yeah, another pair of love inspired sneakers from Dolce & Gabbana. The glitter 'love' inscription is sweet, while the contrasting pink sole and white leather give these D&G love leather sneakers a cool vibe. This style is selling out everywhere. Visit M'oda 'Operandi - there's only a few sizes left.

The green and pink sequin Guccifica headband is just fun! Everything about the Gucci collections are unique, vibrant and oh so retro. This metallic fibre blend hairband has an adjustable fit and would look great against my black hair - is anyone listening? Hint hint..

This heart-embellished sweater by Wildfox isn't available for purchase anymore, but it inspires me to wear hearts on Valentine's Day. Be fun, go pink and put on some red lipstick.. This sequin heart-embellished sweater is young and festive.

I left the best for last. Everybody wants a Victoria's Secret gift card! For Valentine's Day, opt for a 'love' inspired card. I always say gift cards are the best gift that keeps on giving - you get a gift and then get to go shopping..

I'm Coveting..

January 08, 2018
Maybe it's the insanely cold weather, and I'm in a boot mood - Nah, I'm just obsessed with shoes! I'm browsing the web and drooling over these boots - and a pair of sneakers.

Stretch boots by Rick Owens are my dream boot. These cotton and lambskin stretch boots are my two favorite shoe designs in-one - a flat shoe and sock-like fit. I'm old'ish' and appreciate flats. I used to prounce around in five inch heels, through the snow, on ice.. these days, I'm opting for practical, but trendy shoes. These stretch boots are perfect. Too bad I blew the shoe budget on Fendi Rockoko boots (insert sad face).

I'm a Yeezy 'clothing' fan. AND love these Yeezy (season 5) ankle boots. The black jersey fabric and fitted sock style look great with fitted pants and my favorite - sweatpants. Yeah, I wear high-heeled boots with my sweatpants. These boots are also available in beige. Beware though, I have a few pair of Yeezy boots and they're anything but comfy!

Each season Fendi reinvents the Rockoko boot. The style remains 'perfect', but the new colors and embellishments carry this boot season to season. I'm obsessed with Fendi Rockoko boots. They are super comfy and look great with everything. This season, the pearl bow design is my favorite. The black stretch yarn is embellished with a row of pearls that create a double bow on the vamp. LOVE! Admittedly, I'm not coveting these Fendi boots - I already purchased them and am waiting for the snow to melt, so I can show them off!

I'm a huge sneaker fan (flats are friends). Saint Laurent classic canvas sneakers are easy-going with a little hmm.. 'Saint Laurent'. I like the combination of white canvas with off-white laces and eye stay. I typically don't wear clothing and accessories with designer names printed on them,  but I'll make an exception for these sneakers. The muted shades and messy Saint Laurent print is subtle and giving me a Golden Goose vibe.

The Bell Sleeve

December 20, 2017
Statement sleeves are having a fashion moment. Fashion-forward ladies are doing elongated, oversized, flared, layered and bell or balloon-shaped sleeves. Statement sleeves elevate your look - even paired with simple bottoms, a statement sleeve enhances your fashion-style. AND they look great in a photo (especially hailing taxi or dancing in the street). Movement in fashion attracts attention and makes for an excellent Instagram pic. 

I consider myself a fashionable person, and I follow trends intently, but I do sway on the subtle side of each fashion trend. I don't wear loud colors or outrageous shapes, and if the trend is statement sleeves, I'll opt for a muted shade and simple version of the in-the-moment style. 

Acne Studios Cleo cotton turtleneck top (available at mytheresa.com) is light-weight, light-hued and has elongated frill cuffs that will hang out of your sweater or jacket. This style is simple with a little 'flare'. 

This Fendi fur-embellished cotton blend sweatshirt (available at mytheresa.com) is my favorite bell-sleeve style. Fox and mink fur in the shape of flowers give this sweatshirt a playful vibe. This Fendi sweatshirt would look great with straight bottoms, or silk joggers and heels.

This bell-sleeve cotton top by See by Chloé (available at Farfetch) is feminine and chic. The three-quarter length sleeves are slightly flared, bell-shaped and ruched. This top would look great with flared jeans. See by Chloe clothing styles often have a romantic vibe - I love this brand. 

I'm a HUGE sweatpants fan - with sneakers, booties or heels, I can don joggers everyday. This bell-sleeve sweater by Cyclas pairs perfectly with fitted sweatpants and sock-like booties. The two-toned gray sweater is made of silk, mohair and wool. This sweater screams my name, BUT it's sold out everywhere (insert sad face).

Sequins & Glitter

December 15, 2017
Friends are asking me for advice on their holiday party outfits and I say Sequins and glitter. Christmas and glitter go together like, umm.. Christmas and glitter. I decorated my house and put my tree up weeks ago - there's glitter everywhere. My poor little puppy has glitter in his fur! He also spent the first few days licking glitter off the glitter embellished wrapping paper. Umm.. you can imagine.

The holiday season is the perfect opportunity to throw on some sequins, wear red (I never wear red), and go way overboard with your makeup. This is the time shine (insert wink). 

I do suggest you don a sequin dress or glittery shoes to your parties, but there's also some unconventional sequin styles out there for everyday wear. Ports 1961 black and army green oversized wool sweater (available at Farfetch)  is a 'sequin statement'. LOVE. This oversized sequin embellished sweater is perfect for a day event. Paired with fitted jeans and booties, this look is festive and 'really' unique.

My girlfriend wore these sequin embellished boots while we were in Vegas and she rocked it. They're loud and fabulous (maybe not for everyone). Her look inspired me to post some glitter on the blog. Steve Madden's take on the Saint Laurent Niki over-the-knee crystal boots is perfect for the rest of us that can't afford $10,000 boots. The crystal embellished textile of these Crushing boots by Steve Madden will add a little festive sparkle to your look. Pair these with fitted jeans and an oversized wool sweater for the perfect holiday season day look. 

Fashionable backpacks are having a moment. This holiday season pair your party dress with a small, glittery backpack. You can dance, wave your arms around like crazy and your stuff is tucked safely away in your stylish backpack. This gold-tone glitter backpack by Love Mochino (available at Farfetch) is the perfect party accessory. 

I'm obsessed with these jeans - Dolce & Gabbana sequin hem cropped flare jeans (available at Farfetch) are casually chic. The gold-tone sequin hem contrasts the dark blue shade and paired with the distressed edge - this style says 'I'm trendy, I'm sparkly and I'm just down right f**kin' cool'.

I'm Coveting..

November 30, 2017
My 'I'm Coveting' post this month is my favorite so far. Typically, I'd include unattainable items that make me drool - This month, I chose clothing and accessories from my Christmas wishlist and a few things I recently purchased. I'm still in awe of the Fendi boots and Prada bag (a girls gotta dream). 

I purchased this Fenty X Puma rose pink front lace hoodie (was available at Farfetch) for a night out in Vegas. It's called a hoodie, but the oversized style puts this soft, cotton sweater in the sweater dress category. I paired this hoodie with an oversized, pink MIU MIU faux shearling clutch and beige, Rockoko Fendi boots. I looked good! This hoodie is super cozy, and the front lace detail adds to an otherwise basic style. Your accessories will take this from day to dinner to the club. 

I love the 'clear lense' trend. These Chloé gold-tone aviator optical glasses are my favorite. I did purchase them, but the frames were warped, so I sent them back. Unfortunately, they're super hard to get now, so I opted for a different Chloé style. Fashion frames with clear, non-prescription lenses are modern and enhance your face. I like the retro style frames, but each person is different - opt for a frame that suits you. The 'geek, hipster' style looks great on everyone. The oversized frames make you look cute and  well, 'geeky'.

These boots are AMAZING! I'm a little obsessed with Fendi Rockoko fabric boots (available at Fendi). Each season this style is available in new colors and embellishments. These gray stretch fabric boots are embellished with pink and burgundy tone daisy flowers, have a striped heel, and two 'sock-style' stripes around the shaft. These boots are a statement. Surprisingly, Rockoko boots are super comfy - I can wear them for hours. I'm hoping for a new pair this season (hint hint).

This Off-White down the shoulder shirt (available at Revolve) is grungy, sexy and unique - the sleeves are super-long, with an oversized cuff embellished with round metal-tone buttons. The checkered plaid, slouchy look and tie waist bring the grunge, while the off-the-shoulder style brings the glam. I have this top and LOVE it! This Off-White top is also available in white.

The latest Fenty Puma by Rihanna is inspired by classic school uniforms. The collection is fun, sexy and rich in color. This Fenty Puma by Rihanna trapper hat is on my Christmas wishlist. The elongated flaps look warm and cozy - I'm sure this hat will keep me toasty this winter season. 

I mentioned this Prada fur shopper (available at mytheresa.com) a few weeks ago. It's available in white with blue and green pompoms and rose with red pompoms. This shopper is huge and isn't structured, so you can stuff a lot of everything here. I realize white fur is not ideal, but I want it!

The Puffer

November 21, 2017
The puffer coat has been around a while, but this 80's and 90's staple coat has a new identity in 2017. The original puffer coat style was basic - a quilted coat that has down insulation or synthetic fibers stuffed between the stitching (creating a puffed look). Depending on the fit and quality, the puffer-style coat can keep you super warm during the cold season. 

The puffer coat was popular in the 80's and 90's, but then became more synonymous with the slopes and less of a street-style. In recent years, designers have revisited, and completely revamped the puffer coat. From floor-length to cropped, hooded, peplums, loud colors, oversized shapes and asymmetric cuts, the puffer is anything but ordinary these days. 

The beige-hued puffer coat by Undercover (available at Mytheresa.com) is one of my favorites. The collar is layered - you can zip it up to keep your neck warm, or let it fall on each shoulder for an oversized-collar look. The technical, ruffled fabric at the hem is a statement, and the combination of beige fabrics are light, and feminine. 

This Marques' Almeida puffer coat (available at Farfetch) is one version of the oversized style this season. There are three - waist-length, above-the-knee and a longer version. This one lands in the middle, is super-oversized and has a HUGE down-filled collar. I'm sure this will keep you warm. The asymmetric style dons the signature oversized safety pin (love that). 

Stella McCartney was at the forefront of the return of this style. This dark red Stella McCartney double zip padded coat (available at Farfetch) is mid-length and slightly oversized. The 'parka-style' coat has two gold-tone zippers along the front, a hood and is made of luxurious, soft fabric. This deep red-hue is perfect for winter - so rich and warm. 

I can see myself wearing this liner padded coat by Rick Owens (available at Farfetch). It's a subtle statement - a long puffer sleeveless style with a funnel neck that will keep you warm. I love vests in the winter. I'm a fan of knits and often sweaters and heavy coats are too warm (and bulky), but vests allow you to layer and layer.. If this puffer vest had a hood, it would be perfect.

Furry Flats

November 15, 2017
Furry footwear has been trending for a while now. From slides to slippers (ones you wear out), to fur-embellished sneakers.. Last year I wore Tibi booties that had a patch of fur along the vamp. Everyone stopped me on the streets to ask where I got my boots. A little fur-embellishment (or faux-fur) changes your look, adds texture, and can elevate an otherwise muted style. I wouldn't wear a loud outfit and attention grabbing furry shoes, but rather similar shades up top and don something fun and furry on your feet. 

Gucci fur-embellished Princetown slippers dominate the 'furry-feet' style. Seems like every celebrity and model have a pair of these slippers. This season the Princetown slipper is all-over marino wool in light pink, yellow or fuchsia and pale brown. These slippers are AMAZING! I want them, but am hesitant to wear all-around furry shoes outside - I can just imagine how filthy they would get after one wear. Oh and what if you got unexpectedly caught in the rain! Nevertheless, the Gucci light pink Princetown slipper (available at Farfetch) is on my must-have list. 

Valentino Garavani open mink fur-trimmed sneakers (available at Mytheresa.com) are much more subtle, but still make a furry statement. These slip-on sneakers have a pull-tab at the heel and don the signature pyramid-shaped studs amongst the fur. The fur-trim runs from one side of the shoe to the other, completely covering the vamp. I like the red fur, but they're available in many other colors as well. 

These Prada embellished shearling slippers (available at Mytheresa.com) are over-the-top and super fun! The brown and white sheep fur has a pale-blue vamp with a crystal-embellished metal strap. Anything else and these would be too much (they kinda already are), BUT I love a statement shoe. These all-around furry sandals are anything but practical. 

MIU MIU buckled ballerinas have been reinvented each season for a while now. This nude leather and rabbit fur MIU MIU ballerina style (available at Farfetch) is one of my favorites. The muted shades suit my esthetic perfectly. The ballerina style is oh so feminine, but the fur insole brings something new to this dated style, and the leather-buckled straps add a little edge. 

After describing furry shoes and promoting the furry-feet style, I'm wondering - do your feet excessively sweat in fur shoes? AND imagine sweat coupled with fur - EWW! If and when I have an answer to this question, I'll get back to you..

I love designer clothes and accessories, and even though I can't afford to fill my closet with the items I post on b.a.gorgie, I take inspiration from these styles. Great fashion starts at the top and trickles down until it reaches the masses. Following, mimicking and doning premier designer-inspired styles puts you at the forefront of fashion trends. Let these shoes inspire you, and find a similar style that fits within our budget.

Stirrups

November 06, 2017
When I was a little girl (way back in the eighties), I wore leggings with stirrups - of course they're back in style in 2017! Like everything in fashion, trends just spin around and around throughout the years. Once and a while we get something new, but I'm not complaining about the return of stirrups. You can wear this style under over-the-knee boots, with booties, high heels..

Dsquared2 Ski Gaiter Bleached Jeans (available at Farfetch) are distressed, bleached and have adjustable straps (stirrups). These jeans are from the 'Ski' collection - not sure I'd wear denim on the slopes (denim soaks up water like crazy and gets super cold), but if you're a 'I'll be at the lodge' kinda girl, these are your stirrup jeans.

These Gucci Checked Stirrup Trousers (available at Farfetch) are flared - a different take on the 'typical' stirrup pant. These flared pants have a retro vibe. Wrap the stirrup outside your shoe, rather than tuck it inside - it's the new stirrup look.

I mentioned these Saint Laurent Stirrup Denim Leg Warmers (available at mytheresa.com) a few weeks ago. They are amazing. I'm almost always happy to be short and petite, but it's styles like these that make me wish I had some height and longer stems. These go all the way up to your high (high) thigh. LOVE!

Another 'ski' inspired style are these MSGM Stretch Denim Stirrup Jeans (available at Farfetch). These stretchy skinnies don lateral red bands that say "MSGM'. Perfect for a ski trip.

Rag & Bone Oivia High-waisted Stirrup Jeans (available at mytheresa.com) are basic and cool. The light indigo shade and high-waist are as old as the stirrup stye. The jeans are loose fitting, and add length to your legs. 

These Golden Goose Deluxe Brand Dele Metallic Stirrup Trousers (available at mytheresa.com) are super fun. The metallic purple material makes me think disco. These pants can take you from day to night and look nice paired with pumps. AGAIN, take a modern approach to the stirrup style and wrap the straps outside your shoe.

Stirrups

November 06, 2017
When I was a little girl (way back in the eighties), I wore leggings with stirrups - of course they're back in style in 2017! Like everything in fashion, trends just spin around and around throughout...

The Shopper

October 30, 2017
I'm not the kinda girl that lugs around everything but the kitchen sink. SO, totes are not my thing. BUT I need a large tote for travel. As hard as I try, I'm never gonna fit all my stuff in a carry-on suitcase for a weekend getaway. A shopper is big enough to carry liquids, small handbags and maybe a pair of shoes on my shoulder. It's gotta be large enough to hold all my stuff, but still fit within the 'one personal item' category. Is it just me or are airline size restrictions getting smaller and smaller?

You may be asking what's the difference between a tote and a shopper. Honesty, I have no idea. I would like to say a shopper is larger (in most cases it is), BUT handbag styles are blurred these days - there are small totes, and huge clutches.. There's also shopper totes. 

I feel like the brand Off-White is having a moment. Admittedly, I'm a little obsessed. This Off-White leather tote (available at mytheresa.com) isn't being enough for my travel needs, but I could find a reason to carry it!

This Prada shearling shopper (available at mytheresa.com)  is everything I love - furry, pink, and dons fluffy pompoms. AND it's big enough to hold my weekend getaway bags and shoes. This furry shopper is kinda loud, but who cares. Over-the-top handbags add a little something to an otherwise muted wardrobe. This shearling shopper is also available in yellow and brown hues, with orange pompoms. 

This Dolce & Gabbana Beatrice fur shopper (available at mytheresa.com) is not my personal style (not a fan of black), but it's huge and perfect for those "I got a lot of s**t to lug around' days. The other side says LVE in white and red. 

Yes, I'm crushing on Prada handbags these days.. I mentioned this Prada fur shopper (available at mytheresa.com) a few weeks ago. It's available in rose with red pompoms and white with blue and green pompoms. This shopper is huge and isn't structured, so you can stuff a lot of everything here. 

These shopper styles may be al little out of your budget (mine too), but they're inspiring and a girl can dream..

Different Denim

October 23, 2017
Denim is being done different these last few seasons. I purchased straight-cut jeans with an attached frayed-denim skirt last season and love them. It's exciting to see a new take on denim. This season, denim jackets, skits and jeans are doning new looks, layers and embellishments. 

These Kolor tulle skirt jeans are everything - feminine, fashionable, interesting and unique. The jeans have a slight yellowish fade, combined with the deep hues of the tulle - these jeans are great for Fall. Paired with high heels (you need to elongate your legs with this style), tulle skirt jeans will get you noticed. 

Maybe the tulle skirt jeans are to much for some folks - Yajun cut-out straight jeans are a little more subtle, but still interesting and new. These straight leg jeans have a cut-out on both the front and back of the knee. The suspender attachment holds the top portion to the bottom leg portion. Only problem with this style is height - if your knees don't land in the right place, the effect is lost.

Embroidered denim isn't new, but 'Vetements' embroidered on th rear of the right leg is a statement. These Vetements x Levi's embroidered jeans are slashed at one knee giving them a pre-worn look. The dark-gray wash is a nice change and the white print stands out. These slightly-loose, boyfriend-style jeans don't have a height restriction, so shorties can wear these too.

Another great style - Yajun double denim jeans. It looks like there is a dark-denim apron-like attachment hanging on one side. My first thought would be - is that intentional? This look is a bit more adventurous and definitely suited for someone with height. 

Denim is great, versatile and definitely here to stay (forever probably). Do it differently this season and opt for a unique denim style. Layers, embroidery, embellishments, distressed denim.. Do what works for you, but do something out of the norm.

October 16, 2017
This Prada knitted crochet bralette (available at Farfetch) would look great over a fitted t-shit, or by itself and paired with a super-high waist bottom. The contrasting red stitching over the gray virgin wool is a nice Fall look (even though it's a wool bralette). I couldn't wear this, cause I'm a bit top-heavy, but I encourage crop-top worthy bodies to don this amazing Prada bralette.

The sock-style boot is super-trending this season. Many brands have one or more versions of this boot. The Fendi sandal-shaped boots (available at Farfetch) are unique, in that it literally looks like your wearing socks inside your sandals. I really like these. I've only seen this style in black and red - I'd prefer a different color - maybe gray over beige.

I HAVE TO HAVE this Prada fur shopper (available at mytheresa.com). I've been searching for a large tote for a long time. I need something big to travel with, so I can carry all my little handbags and maybe a pair of shoes with me on the plane. I can never fit into a carry-on alone. This bag was meant for me. It's furry, pastel-pink and has a hook for pompoms, so you can accessorize your bag. LOVE.

I'm addicted to Chloé sunglasses. The vintage style of these Chloé aviator glasses (available at mytheresa.com) is all me. The peach-tinted frame will bring warmth to your complexion, and the pale lens will show off your eyes. These are not your typical aviator-style, but more of a retro look. HAVE TO HAVE..

I have a pair of these sock-like Fendi boots in beige and absolutely love them. They are surprisingly comfortable and look great with dresses, rolled-up denim, and 'nice' sweatpants. This season I want these Fendi Rockoko boots in black-metallic stretch fabric (available at Fendi). The color is great for winter - I don't have to worry about them getting dirty during the cold season. The metallic will stand out and add to my otherwise muted outfits. AND I like the little pink stripes (I love pink). 

These Saint Laurent boot-inspired stirrup denim leg warmers (available at mytheresa.com) are essentially waist-free jeans. I doubt my stems will fit into these retro leg warmers (I'm no model), but a girl can dream. The muted-gray shade is versatile and the stirrups are SO retro. I remember having stirrup leggings when I was a little girl. The structured denim and way-high, over-the-knee style may not be suited for my body type, but stirrups are on my must-have list this season.

When I saw these Alexander Wang Amelia slides (available at Farfetch) on the 2017 Spring/Summer runway, I wanted them in every color. After considering the material, comfort aspect and the fact that I had already purchased three pairs of slides from others brands, I opted not to buy them. The Fall/Winter version of these slides are velvet, and gorgeous maroon color, SO I think I might get these. The color is super-rich and perfect for Fall. This style is so unique, and slides are trending hard this year. LOVE!

If you're into fashion, you've seen this bag. The Chloé Nile cross-body bag (available at Farfetch) is a star this season. I really wanted the minaudière (super tiny style), but it sold out. I did however purchase the 'small' Nile cross-body bag and LOVE it. You can use the shoulder strap, carry the bag like a clutch, or hold it by the heavy gold-tone ring. It's small - I can however get my iPhone 6 Plus in there (and a few other things). This is my favorite bag of the season. Imma keep looking for the minaudière..

Off-White 'For Walking' white pumps (available at Farfetch) are so fun! I'm not a white shoe fan, but if they came in nude with white print, I would absolutely buy them. Off-White also has super-high, over-the-knee boots with 'For Walking' printed down the side. 

Yeah, I'm obsessed with Chloé. Eveytime I create an 'I'm Coveting' post, this high-end French brand is always on my need-to-have list (at least once). These Chloé velvet laced booties (available at Farfetch) are everything. I love booties. I'll wear them with jeans, dresses and even joggers. I like the oversized laces on these booties and the chunky heal looks comfy. The older I get, the thicker and shorter my heels get!

Every few weeks I browse my favorite on-line shopping sites to see what's new and trending. Burgundy'ish' tones are dominant this season (I think they usually are in fall). I'm not an orange fan, but the bright orange lining in this jacket is a nice contrast to the rich burgundy (I wouldn't reverse the jacket and don bright orange). This Unravel reversible cropped down jacket (available at mytheresa.com) is perfect for transitioning from Fall to Winter. It's cropped, so not too overwhelming, but down-filled, so it's warm. It's made of water-repellent and water-resistant fabric and the ribbed cuffs lock in heat. I WANT!

I HAVE TO HAVE this Prada feather-trimmed wool scarf (available at mytheresa.com). I like cream-colored scarves - cream shades brighten up an otherwise darker Winter wardrobe. This scarf has a little burgundy (like that), and the feather-embellishment is everything! I like that the feathers are only on one end. I need this - hint hint (you know who I'm hinting at)..

It's been blazing hot in Virginia for some time, but summers been slow to surface for most people. You're probably thinking why is this girl taking about Fall shoes already, I just pulled my sandals out! Yeah, I'm working on my Fall look and debating my statement shoes. This season I'm moving away from pastels (especially pink) and embracing the shades of Fall. 

These Prada fur and velvet sandals are everything! They're a little over-the-top, but oh so fluffy and fun. The bright pink and burgundy color combination is perfect. Slipper-inspired slides have been on-trend a while now and I love it. I'm gonna keep this trend going in my wardrobe. 

I preordered these Fendi multicolored mink and leather sliders and love them!The cross-over style flat sandal is a statement shoe. I love that each sandal is different. The white flowers on the right shoe are so cute, and the turquoise/burgany stripes on the left are the perfect color combination. You can pair these sandals with jeans, joggers.. LOVE!

Gianvito Rossi Vires knitted ankle boots are simple and will look great with joggers. I'm in a sweatpants mood these days and like to pair them with sock boots. I've been looking for an alternative to my not-so-comfy (at all) Yeezy boots. These knitted ankle boots just might be what I'm searching for.

How fun are these Chloé Kerenn shearling sliders! They're simple, fluffy and comfy. The Chloé Kerenn woven fringe sliders are new this season. The colors embody Fall perfectly. I love the woven textile comprised of cotton weave, fringe, fluffy embellishments and leather fringe. These are a statement.

I have had my eye on these Chloé Harper peep-toe booties for a while now. I'm a bootie fan and like a thick heel (for comfort). This peep-toe style is anything but boring. The thick laces cover an open vamp and can be tied in a variety of ways. Pair these peep-toe booties with a flowing, bohemian-style dress.

Bag Straps

July 10, 2017
Not sure who launched this fashion trend, but good on ya! Handbag accessories have been around a while - bag charms, mini bags attached to larger bags.. and while mismatched straps may not be new, it's mainstream presence is definitely a must-have in the fashion scene these days. I was first introduced to bag straps at Fendi in New York. There were so many designs, and each strap gave your bag a unique look. Of course, Fendi (my favorite accessory brand) exaggerates each strap with huge geometrical flowers, shapes and colors. AMAZING! Considering the detail and unique designs, the high ticket is definitely warranted (at Fendi). 

Premiere designers aren't the only ones launching bag straps. Many contemporary (and less expensive) brands have incorporated this trend in their lineup. You don't have to have a premiere designer bag to elevate your arm candy - a limited edition bag strap will do..

Spring is here - aka - 'pedicures are necessary weather'. It's time to let your feet breathe a little, and show off Springs favorite shoes. There are so many styles to choose from this season - it's kinda all over the place. While I usually opt for sneakers, heels are making a comeback on my shoe rack. These are my favorites (so far).

The t-strap and nude color of Francesco Russo ankle length sandals (available at FARFETCH) will elongate your legs dramatically. The wide vamp is comfy - in 4" heels, you need that extra support. Pair with skirts or cropped trousers. Fendi stripped cropped trousers, and a loose silk camisole would look amazing with these sandals.

These Gianna Meliani flamingo print feather sandals (available at FARFETCH) are EVERYTHING - the printed tie wraps above your ankle to elongate your legs, the flamingo print is fun, feminine and pretty, and the pink feathers - LOVE! These are statement sandals.

My favorite shoe this season is Stuart Weitzman's Nudistsong sandal. This style is flattering, feminine and comes in many colors. I purchased the Nudistsong sandal in Azure (pictured). This pale shade of blue will look great on sun-kissed skin. The shoe runs narrow (and I have small feet), so I recommend opting for the 'wide' fit.

Yeah, the weather is heating up, but booties are still an essential Spring shoe. These Chloé fringe open toe booties (available at FARFETCH) are sexy and who doesn't love fringe. Pair with high-waisted denim shorts (I'm not talking booty baring shorts), and a simple top (maybe a tee), or a loose, floral print dress. This fringe will sway while you walk..

My on going, never ending wishlist.. I'm still coveting everything pink and nude (it's an obsession). This Spring I want pink, floral, flowing and oversized - Paired with feminine handbags, unique sandals and statement booties. Oh, and I'm collecting sneakers this summer to pair with cute dresses and frayed denim. 

I'm obsessed with this Stella McCartney Embroidered Lace Dress (available at FARFETCH). It's fun, fresh and definitely makes a statement. Imma break the bank for this one..

Fendi By The Way Tote (available at FARFETCH). Ok, I just purchased a Fendi tote, but I want this one too. The floral detail is feminine and the neautral colors will go with everything. I like the boxy shape and long strap. We'll see..

There's no doubt you will see me wear these Fendi Bow Front Sandals (available at FARFETCH) this summer. I love slides and the bow detail is so cute! The spandex/elastine fabric is super comfy (I have the boots). 

Fendi Sock Style Boots (available at FARFETCH) are my favorite shoe this summer. I have these boots in Bianco and they're surprisingly comfy. I want the blue and the gray/multi with floral print. These boots elongate my legs dramatically - MUST HAVE!

Jacquemus Checkered Shirt with Oversized Cuffs (available at FARFETCH). Button downs are a staple, but the oversized cuffs on this shirt will elevate your look and make statement. Pair with booties and wear as dress, or layer long-over-long with statement denim. I have to have this shirt.

The Fendi Handkerchief Hem Scallopped Shorts (available at FARFETCH) are so pretty, feminine and unique. I love the Fendi Spring 2017 collection - I want everything..

It's A Material World

April 12, 2017



Wanna shed 30 pounds of closet weight? Admittedly, I could use to loose a few pounds of body weight too - BUT, this post is about Material World - the luxury fashion trade-in site. I'm always buying and often have too many clothes and accessories - my closet is overflowing. I get so much pleasure in something new and rarely (but sometimes) shop my own closet to find treasures that I'd forgotten about. More often than not, I opt for on-line shopping and boxes of new stuff. That being said, I hate clutter and am usually laking closet space for my new clothes and accessories. I do like to donate, but some articles are expensive and I struggle to let them go. Material World is a great outlet for 'feel-good' spring cleaning (in my case, quarterly cleaning). 

Material World accepts pre-owned clothing and accessories from a long list of designer and contemporary brands (230+ brands). Just ship your stuff and wait for a quote. If you like the offer, accept. If you're not happy wth the offer (item based), you can have it shipped back to you, or Material World will donate the articles to Housing Works - a charity committed to the AIDS crisis and homelessness. The trade-in process is easy (aside from the closet cleansing). Visit material world.co to create an account, request a 'Yesterday Kit' and wait up to ten days. Your Material World kit will include an accepted brands list, item packing list and giant shipping bag with a prepaid shipping label. Just fill out the packing list (take a photo for your records), fill the bag and drop it at FedEx. Material World will email you a notification that the package was received and it will take 7-10 business days to receive your quote.




Once you receive the quote and accept, deny or donate your items, you can opt for a Material World Fashion Trade-In Card or gift cards for the 700+ online and in-store locations. Your Material World card is only accepted at these locations - Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman, Bloomingdales, Henri Bendel, Intermix, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, SAKS and Shopbop. Each time you trade-in items, Material World will automatically load the money onto your Material World Fashion Trade-In Card. 

I've sent two large boxes of clothes and accessories to Material World and am happy with the outcome (mostly). The shipping is easy and I like that everything is taken care of at no extra cost. You receive the money regardless of whether or not it sells (unlike consignment). AND I'm making money off my pre-owned clothing and accessories! I do however question the process of valuing the items. I traded-in 'never worn' articles, as well as items in great condition, and was surprised to receive a low quote. Based on the 'get a quote' feature on the site, you can determine approximately how much you would receive. DO NOT RELY ON THIS FEATURE. What do ya gotta trade-in to get the highest price?! I opted to have some items returned, because the quote was simply unacceptable. The 'get a quote' feature kinda sets the seller up for disappointment. Maybe, a thorough description of the value process would enlighten Material World users and alleviate the disappointment factor. 

REVISION (April 19th) - I've just noticed that some of my items have been posted to 'shop pre-owned'. I received 25-35% of the actual sale price on materialworld.co. Of course I had hoped to receive a higher quote, but I do consider that staff must be paid, facilities maintained and material World does incur all shipping costs. Did I receive a fair quote? I'm not sure, and I am not aware of another trade-in program to compare it to.  
 
Other than the 'quote issue' (I'd still rather have money than an excess of dusty clothes in my closet), I really like this program and will continue to use it. My closet is lighter, organized and I feel good about making money off my pre-owned items.

I'm Coveting..

October 27, 2016
My on-going, never-ending wish list may be a little outta my reach (and budget), but a girl can dream.. 

The Chanel Vintage Extra Large Terry Backpack is the perfect travel bag. Large enough to pack the extras that wouldn't fit in your suitcase, it's chic, makes a statement and it's SOLD OUT! That's a good thing, cause I'd be tempted to break the bank for that one.

My Tibi Cecil Loafers in navy velvet are on the way. Loafers are a great Fall shoe - This season Tibi loafers are backless or fold at at the back, exposing your heel. LOVE!

I need a new pair of neutral pumps to go with my endless pile of denim. These Gianvito Rossi Femi pumps are at the top of my 'must have' list (available at FARFETCH). 

I recently purchased a few Laura Mercier products and love them! I want more.. Special edition Laura Mercier The Iconics boxed gift set has five full size products and seven deluxe size products. This set is perfect for anyone who wants to dabble in the premium cosmetic brand and enjoy twelve of Laura Mercier's favorite products. 

I'm a huge fan of blogger Aimee Song (Song of Style) and when I saw her wear these SJYP distressed crop jeans (I'm a distressed denim kinda girl), I HAD TO HAVE! 

The Eva mohair fabric clutch by MIU MIU (available at mytheresa.com) meets all of my favorite things about a bag - fury, pink, and is large enough to hold my iPhone 6 Plus.

Trend: Espadrilles

May 18, 2016
The plaited fibre sole defines the Espadrille, a summer must-have this season. This long-time Spring/Summer favorite is taking on a new identity in 2016 and showcasing innovative, fun designs. 

Espadrilles are a given during the summer and embellished espadrilles are even better. I love the tassels on Aquazurra's pale yellow espadrilles (pictured here). I purchased a pair of Chloé espadrille wedge sandals (kinda like the ones pictured here), and while I'm nervous to balance on 5 inches of fibre sole, I can't wait to wear them.

Espadrille sneakers are having a big fashion moment and I want them all! Sneakers have been dominating our looks for many seasons and combining these two shoe designs is genius. The fibre sole or in the case of Alexander Wang's sneaker espadrilles with a fibre toe-cap, adds a freshness to the sneaker and brings the long-time favorite shoe into summer. You can wear the sneaker espadrille with tailored pants, joggers, dresses, and basically anything in your closet. The espadrille sneaker is cool, chic and on-trend.

Hunkemöller Haul

May 11, 2016
I recently discovered Hunkemöller in Amsterdam and am kinda obsessed. I'm a pajama addict and when I saw the 'pink' collection through the window, I knew I'd be hooked.. 

Hunkemöller is the Dutch version (replica) of Victoria's Secret. While the quality is a little less than that of our favorite American retailer of lingerie, I like the selection of styles and colors. One important things to mention; size up, cause after one or two washes, the items shrink (a lot). I'm usually an XS in pj's and undies, but would purchase a SM at Hunkemöller. I absolutely love the bralets. They're lined (I need that), super comfy and did you know bralets are having a big moment in fashion this summer?! I have bralets from Victoria's Secret and prefer the Hunkemöller styles (just sayin'). If you're visiting Amsterdam and ran out of undies, Hunkemöller has great deals (similar to VS); 3 for €20 or get one free. The staff are super helpful and the store's are well-done. I'm a fan!

Laundry On The Road

December 18, 2015
My holiday season always consists of travel and often more than two weeks on the road. This year I'll do three cities in fifteen days to see family and friends. Packing for two entire weeks would mean oversized and over weight luggage, so I opt for minimal packing and count on doing laundry somewhere along the way. The Laundress travel size laundry care and detergents are great for on the road laundry. Each bottle is 2 fl oz., compact and more than enough for many weeks away from home. Each product has a unique fresh scent and treats your clothes carefully. Delicate wash, signature detergent, stain solution and sport detergent meet all of my family's needs. You can choose from a wide variety of travel size laundry care products from the Laundress - mix and match to create your perfect laundry travel kit.

The Weathered Look

December 14, 2015
Spring/Summer 2015 designer collections brought destroyed denim to the forefront. While these styles were extreme and unlikely to take over denim fashion, the more subtle, 'mainstream' weathered look continues to evolve into Fall/Winter. Distressed denim, frayed hems and raw cuts are on trend this season. Sitting just around your ankle, skinnies, boyfriend jeans, and straight cuts with frayed hems are easy going and laid-back. Paired with an oversized sweater, sneakers or booties, distressed denim is one of my favorite trends this year. Of course, you can trim your favorite jeans to create this raw edge look yourself, but without proper treatment the hem will continue to fray. Prefab versions most likely have stitching or treatments to keep the look consistent over the years. Once considered punk or just simply 'old jeans', rips, tears, raw edges and even patches are all trending denim looks for Fall/Winter.

Dear Santa

December 07, 2015
My Christmas wish list is short, pink and all about fun fashion pics. The Chloé Drew fringed shoulder bag (available at FARFETCH) and Fendi fur detailed wool-knit beanie are at the top of my list. These statement accessories are on trend for 2016's color palette and anything but boring. Of course, I always need a new pair of aviators and I'm a little obsessed with Chloé - these Isadora aviator-style sunglasses are a must (available at NET-A-PORTER). I absolutely love my Clarisonic Aria and Mia 2, so it's a given that I would wish for the new Mia Fit. A smaller facial cleansing device that goes everywhere and takes up little space. Probably the most exciting item on my list, is the LuMee iPhone case. This case has LED lighting on both sides to create perfect lighting for great social media pics. Can't wait for Christmas!

Fur or Faux?

November 27, 2015
The cold weather has put me in a fur or faux kinda mood. Admittedly, I'm addicted to soft, furry things (real and faux). While some of my favorite apparel and accessories this season are fur, I often opt for a less expensive faux version. Everything is fur or faux this winter; from coats to gilets and bags to shoes, you can don this trend just about anywhere! I especially love little fur details on boots and shoes - it's unexpected and fun. I'm also partial to neutral tones that lighten up an otherwise dark season for apparel. Here's a montage of fur and faux items to inspire your fashion choices this winter.

Pictured here: (available at NET-A-PORTER) Fendi Peekaboo shearling tote, Zara faux fur stole, ear muffs and snood, (available at Mytheresa) Stella McCartney faux fur gilet, Mango faux fur coat, Fendi fur bag charm, (available at NET-A-PORTER) Stella McCartney faux fur tote - available in two sizes.

Luxury Fashion For Less: Gucci

October 08, 2015
The Fall 2015 Gucci girl has a nonchalant attitude toward fashion and still gets all the attention! Gucci makes geek street fashion chic and possibly the most fun to mimic this season. The muted color palette and 70's inspired vibe is eclectic and easy-going. I posted about Zara's 'Gucci inspired' collection a while back - fast fashion stores are practically replicating the Gucci style and producing trendy, inexpensive items. Pictured here are apparel and accessories from Mango and Zara.

Luxury Fashion For Less: Burberry Prorsum

October 06, 2015
The Burberry Prorsum Fall 2015 collection, 'Patchwork, Pattern and Prints' showcased 70's inspired chic bohemian style. Floral and fringe dominated the runway and each look was as inspiring as the last. The suede fringe cape was my favorite. The elderberry colored cape retails for €7,250! You can buy a similar style at Mango in cognac for €99,99! This neutral color would look great paired with dark denim and bordeaux over-the-knee boots.

The Burberry Prorsum show always introduces a new style of handbag featured in that seasons favorite colors and embellishments. The Fall 2015 collection showcased the 'Bucket Bag' in two sizes, prints, suede and of course fringed. Pictured here is a dark green fringed suede bag by Mango. Bucket shaped, jewel tone and fringed - embodies everything necessary to pull off a Burberry Prorsum inspired look.

I got to thinking, I'm gonna browse fast-fashion stores and share my findings with you. From the runway to your closet, this week I am focused on bringing you trendy looks for a fraction of the cost.

A new name and applied to all facets of fashion - 'dried herb' hues are a staple for Fall 2015. These earthy tones are neutral and should be paired with similarly warm colors. For a sophisticated look, substitute black and don chic attire in dried herb hues. Wear a sheer green top with tailored pants in a slightly darker shade, or layer dried herb greens atop dark blue and cream - dark blue denim flares, tan shoes, a cream-colored silk blouse and green cape - perfection! Feeling casual, go military-style in modern way by paring cargo pants and a sheer sweater. Natural colored fur (preferably faux) compliments warm green tones and transforms your look from casual to sophisticated and chic.

Over-the-knee & Oversized

September 21, 2015
Oversized capes and ponchos atop over-the-knee boots are the perfect paring for Fall. Showcased in Fall 2015 runway shows: Chloé, Burberry, Thakoon and more - capes and ponchos look effortlessly chic. Opt for an oversized poncho atop fitted pants and over-the-knee boots, or a shorter hem cape paired with flared pants and a chunky heel. A heavy knitted poncho is an essential layer for Fall, both cozy and on-trend. Over-the-knee boots can be tricky (sometimes garish), but paired with long, oversized knits and tights or fitted pants look classy and chic. If you only try a few trends this season, let it be a cape or poncho and over-the-knee boots.

The Bodysuit

September 14, 2015
I don't remember how old I was the last time I wore a bodysuit, but it was in the nineties and I had a drawer full of them. I suddenly feel old! Bodysuits have kinda lingered in the background over the years - I purchased a Wolford bodysuit a few years ago and felt the body-hugging fit was unflattering and showing off all my imperfections (I returned it). Thankfully the 'cropped top' trend forced me to maintained a flat stomach and bodysuits are an option again. I love a turtleneck bodysuit paired with high-waisted flares or cropped trousers (high-waisted is a must). One of my favorite looks for Fall is my Tibi stretch-jersey turtleneck bodysuit and cropped stretch-jersey wide-leg pants in dark grenache - I am a bit obsessed with monochromatic looks. Channeling the seventies this season, opt for a simple turtleneck design in neutral shades paired with corduroy or denim flares and a thick heel. Visit NET-A-PORTER and browse Donna Karan NY, Wolford and Body Editions for simple and unexpected bodysuit designs.

Skirted Trousers

September 07, 2015
Ok, this first time I saw the skirted trouser trend, I thought it was odd, but this chic look is swiftly growing on me. What changed my mind? These Commes Des Garçons Vintage Skirted Trousers - LOVE! Skirted trousers were seen all over the Spring 2015 runways, but fashion chatter speculated whether we would see it on the streets. Bloggers, celebrities and models made it happen and now a new season is here and the skirted trouser trend has evolved.. Rag & Bone showcased silk dresses and knee length skirts atop tailored pants in the Fall 2015 runway show. This collection shows that layering all-over, both top and bottom is fresh and innovative.

Update your pant look and opt for skirted, wrap or apron trousers. Loose fitting pants with material wrapped, tied around your waist and landing just short of your knees or all the way to your hem are casual and cool. An apron or skirt atop your tailored pants are modern, intriguing and attention-getting. Make a fancy statement by wearing a full, ruffled skirt over tailored pants (my favorite). Happy layering..

Red Red Wine

August 27, 2015
Merlot, burgundy, grenache and bordeaux - let the rich colors of red wine inspire your fashion choices this upcoming season. Don't be afraid to wear shades of dark red from head-to-toe. Don a burgundy cable-knit sweater atop a grenache colored pant, or matching silk top and leather skirt in crimson-red. Emilio Pucci's velvet wide-leg pants in burgundy and Giamba's sleeveless fur tank inspire a perfect I'm chic, quirky and soft to the touch look! Pair red wine colors with cream, shades of gray and deep blue hues. Fur (faux too), velvet, wool, heavy lace.. dark red colors combined with textured fabrics are alluring, sophisticated and spot-on for fall.

Inspired by the Seventies

August 18, 2015
My recent visit to Zara (actually my first time shopping at Zara) has made me think differently about fast fashion and admittedly, I am a fan. Zara's impression of Fall 2015 designer collections stay true to the original style, while keeping a short distance from mimicry. The colors, prints and silhouettes are 'what's now'. With a little designer inspiration and your own interpretation, anyone can re-create Fall's high-end fashion looks from Zara apparel and accessories. Just beyond the front doors was a seventies inspired collection that screamed Gucci Fall 2015 (one of my favorite collections this upcoming season). I also recognized a little Chloé in the clothing and purchased an oversized, shaggy vest similar in concept, but different material than the one seen atop a denim Cholé dress during the Fall show.

And so, another fashion collage to inspire you - seventies fashion is back (not sure it ever left). This seasons seventies inspired collections are retro and modern, feminine and flattering. Flared trousers are literally the most flattering cut on women. Denim and corduroy, shag and sheer will rein favorite materials this Fall. Hue's of pink, gray, dark red and the oh so retro camel are choice colors. Styling notes: flared on the bottom - fitted on top, loose or flared overalls, feminine silk tops, barely-there makeup and easy going hair.

Fashion Throwback

August 15, 2015
From 2013 runway shows to mainstream brands, this nineties scrunchie trend has been lingering for a while. I was never one for hair accessories, but I'm feeling nostalgic and admittedly started a scrunchie collection.

If you fear looking like your on our way to aerobics class, there are ways to modernize this accessory trend. Straight hair in a low ponytail is best with a large scrunchie. Those of us who don short do's, try a low bun (secure with elastic first) and use a small scrunchie, so the little hair you have still shows. If you maintained your long hair throughout the bob/lob phenomeon, then you have more scrunchie options - half up, half down, the traditional high pony in a large scrunchie (so nineties) and a top-knot bun held with a printed scrunchie. This is a trend to try - fun, flirty and everyone loves a throwback!

Pictured here: Brandy Melville Printed Scrunchies. Looking for something more subtle? Sephora Collection has a small, faux leather-like scrunchie available in black - perfect for shorter hair styles.

Trend: Gray

August 12, 2015
The Fall season is nearing and I feel myself gravitating towards anything gray. Each season I subconsciously adopt a new hue and can't help but purchase everything in shades of my new found color. I do love a head-to-toe gray ensemble and encourage you to try it, but all gray everyday will get boring! Don your gray accessories with neutral tones, such as cream and tan for a classy look. Rose, Salmon and peach shades paired with gray accessories will enhance your complexion and soften your look. Need a pop of color? Seafoam green will brighten your ensemble. I also love dark red paired with gray. A red merlot silk dress worn beneath a bathrobe-style gray sweater or crimson red over-the-knee boots with a long, heavy-knit poncho in smoke gray. Both rich in color, feminine and perfect Fall looks. Although there are perfect pairings, gray goes with everything and versatile accessories are must-haves.

What to Wear in Santorini

July 23, 2015
I'm so lucky to be traveling to Santorini today and can't wait to showcase my summer vacation ensembles. I have put 'too much' thought into packing for this trip and yes, I have a laundry rolling rack for such occasions! I consider myself a master at packing and thoughtful when choosing the right apparel and accessories and these things take time. The pale scenery in Santorini brings out the desire for white apparel and lighter shades. For day I'll wear t-shirt dresses in white and mint green, and a loose fitting peach dress with beige embroidery and tassels. My evening looks include full A-line skirts with cropped bodices and tanks, fluted skirts with crop tops and one Grecian strapless dress (my favorite). The Santorini forecast is 'hot' and sunny, but I'm gonna pack silk pants and a light sweater anyways (ya never know).

My straw knapsack and hat are a must (Shopbop.com). A squishy straw beach bag saves space in your suitcase. I like small bags and will pack my mini Dolce & Gabbana Embellished handbag inside my Louis Vuitton tote (you need a larger bag for the plane). Packing small handbags inside larger ones, saves a lot of room. Of course one clutch is necessary for dinner. Pictured here: Phillip Lim Gorge Pouch - a neutral, goes with everything clutch.

Santorini's landscape is not high-heel friendly, so I'm packing flats, platforms and a pair of wedge booties (for pictures - I don't plan to walk around in them). Gladiator sandals seem fitting for Greece and just so happen to be on trend this season. Shoes pictured here: Tibi Mina Leather Slides, Burberry Prorsum Wedge Booties, Tibi Camilo Sandals, Tibi Jack Slides, Rag & Bone Kent Sneakers, Miu Miu Embellished Sneakers and Salvatore Ferragamo Jellies (for the beach). I love the sneakers and full skirts trend and my fringe Jack Slides are a great statement shoe to wear with an otherwise plain t-shirt dress.

My swimsuits and sarongs are Agua Bendita. The yellow crochet sarong pictured here is handmade (thanks mom). Coverups are a necessity for walking to and from the pool - pictured here Muche Muchette cream crochet coverup and a colorful Camilla Embellished coverup.

So there ya have it! Pale colors, white is must and flat neutral-toned shoes. Santorini is a great location for photos, so pack thoughtfully and don your best vacation looks. I will post my 'vacation in Santorini' looks over the next few weeks..

Fall Trend: Pink

July 22, 2015
The universally flattering pink is on-trend for Fall 2015. Whether it be bright pink, fuchsia, pale pink, Barbie pink or pinkish peachy, seems like the entire pink spectrum is having a moment in fashion. Not all pink shades work for every skin tone, so find your pink, one that works with you and not against you - for pale skin tones opt for a brighter pink, cool tones for black hair and warm for blonde. Pair pale pink with mint green, rose with teal and fuchsia with orange. One accent color is enough - you don't want to look like a rainbow! Embrace the trend and wear a full pink ensemble, like Tibi's blush pink skirt and top (above). If you're hesitant to don a pink look, then opt for a pink accessory - sunglasses and shoes are a subtle way to showcase your love for color. Fall's feminine pink shades are refreshing to a usually dark-toned season in fashion. Much of my closet is pink and I'm thrilled to see shades of pink in many Fall 2015 collections.

The collection continues to expand with new items released each day.. Visit farfetch.com and NET-A-PORTER to view Fendi's newly released Bag Bug apparel and accessories. I'm loving this collection!

Three Trends to Try

July 15, 2015
Three trends to try this summer: Bare a little skin in an off-the-shoulder tunic, dress or crop top. Pair your off-the-shoulder tunic with cropped pants and your crop top with a full A-line skirt. Culottes are summer's faved pant style this season - landing a few inches above your ankles, these pants are 'forgiving' and flattering. For a 70's daytime look, wear your high waisted culottes with wedges and t-shirt and for a modern night look don a pair of tailored culottes with with an off-the-shoulder tunic and strappy sandals. Soft fringe and fur embellished shoes are my favorite trend this season. I'm happy to report the furry shoe trend doesn't end with summer - we will see full-furred boots and poufs of fur on slides, mules and booties.

Pictured here: Tibi Off-the-Shoulder Tunic, Tibi Ophelie Fringe Mules and 7 For All Mankind Denim Culottes.

Agua Bendita

July 13, 2015
Charming prints, embellishments, tassels, ruching and ruffles are what make Agua Bendita a superior brand in swimwear. Ethnic Adventure and Loving the Earth are just two of the elaborate themes Agua Bendita swimwear showcases each season. This is my favorite swimwear brand! Of course I love the details and colors, but the fit is impeccable - the ruched bottoms accentuate your assets and my 'not so little and perfect' bottom looks better in Agua Bendita than any other swimwear brand. Tops and bottoms are sold separately, allowing for the perfect size and fit all around. There are often a few styles featuring the same print, so you can mix-and-match to meet your needs.

Agua Bendita sarongs, cover ups and scarves are as equally impressive and the perfect pairing to your bikini. Opt for a matching sarong folded and worn around your waist at the pool to enhance your bottom or full-size and wrapped around your bust for more coverage. For a modern poolside look, drape a scarf (much smaller than the sarongs) over your shoulders.

Agua Bendita swimwear is available at aguabendita.com and revolveclothing.com

Of course I wash my under garments, socks and tops after each use, but I avoid washing sweaters and bottoms if I can to preserve their original color and state. There's nothing worse than washing your new jeans and finding they're covered in micro white pilling and faded. I was introduced to The Laundress Denim Wash by a salesperson at the denim company, 7 For All Mankind. Tried, tested and true, my new blue denim jeans came out looking almost perfect. Now I use Denim Wash on all of my heavy, dark fabrics to maintain their color.

When I find a brand that is this impressive, I usually buy their other products as well - and so, my collection of clothing care products is starting to look like my hair products shelf! Among the vast variety of detergents in The Laundress clothing care line, I currently use the Signature Detergent, Delicates Detergent, Sport Detergent, Wool and Cashmere Shampoo, Denim Wash (I luv this product), Stain Solution (miracle product), Ironing Water and Stiffen Up (natural starch). Each product has a unique fresh scent and successfully treats your clothes in the manner intended. I know it may seem ridiculous to purchase a different detergent for each fabric, but clothes are expensive and I want mine to look good after 15+ washes. I assure you these products will keep your clothes looking great for an extended period of time.

Mind Your Midriff

July 02, 2015
Before I go on a rant about minding your midriff, let me be clear - most women have midriff concerns and it is normal to have a slight bump or swelling in your abdomen area. Only models (whom are usually in their twenties) have a flat stomach and they work hard for it. Those of us who don't obsess over our physic during the winter, might have some regrets come that first summer heat-wave. Even if you bust your ass tryna get fit for summer vacation, after the first salt-rimmed margarita and poolside burger - your bloated! So don't fret, just dress appropriately and do your best to mask your shortcomings with the right attire. Here are some bikini options for those of us trying to cover our midriff while keeping fashionable and cool in tropical temperatures. Moderate to high rise bottoms are your best friend this summer. Side ruching (gathering of material) creates a diversion and makes the area appear smaller. Prints conceal, while solid colors tend to show your figure for what it is. Horizontal stripes will make your bust look larger and your hips wider, in turn your belly will appear flatter. A pair of high-waisted shorts atop your bikini is a cute 'cover up'. It's all about playing with proportions, texture, prints and styles to find your perfect poolside attire.

Pictured here: Dolce & Gabbana Floral-Print Bustier Bikini Top and High-Waisted Briefs, Norma Kamali One-Shoulder Top and and Moderate-Rise Bottoms, She Made Me Crocheted Bikini Top and Shorts, Dolce & Gabbana Striped Bikini Top and Ruched Briefs. Visit NET-A-PORTER for these and many other high-waisted bikini styles.

Spring - Sans Skinnies

April 07, 2015
The never-ending skinny jean trend has been lingering around far too long and lets face it, they're not the most flattering jean. There is an array of denim styles to choose from this season; the cropped boyfriend jean for a loose fitting casual look, the oh so chic flare jean (makes everyone look better, taller and skinner) and the denim track pant (my favorite). It's time to retire your skinnies - think of it like a 21-day cleanse - from skinny jeans! Push your skinnies far into the back of your closet and opt for a modern denim style that's comfy and flatters your figure.

Trend: Culottes

Culottes are dominating the pant scene this summer. Opt for loose fitting silk culottes paired with an oversized soft-flowing top and chunky heels or platforms for a chic, feminine look. Wear your tailored culottes with an oversized t-shirt and fringe slide sandals for a trendy, casual look. Need some culotte inspiration? The Tibi Spring 2015 runway showcased culottes styled in every which way - it is my favorite collection this season! Together the Simone Trapeze Corset top and Simone Pleated Silk Culottes (Tibi) are the perfect combination of modern, feminine and comfy.

Nobody does luxurious minimalism like Stella McCartney. Staying true to form, this collection showcased structured garments, long over long and monochromatic looks. The long one-sleeved knit sweaters are modern and sure to make a statement. I'm not sure about white flowers in fall, but this floral dress is gorgeous. There were many white looks throughout the show that caught my attention - I'm especially drawn to the hooded white fur/knit coat - it's extravagant and I luv it!

The rose-pink overalls atop a silk shirt and neck tie is my most coveted look in the show - or it could be the gray knit poncho - or even the long shag vest. I want everything in this collection.

Milan Fashion Week: Gucci

February 25, 2015
Newly appointed creative director at Gucci, Alessandro Michele, is showcasing his own vision, far from past collections and giving us a new, contemporary "Gucci girl".

Not what you would expect on a Gucci runway - These garments look like something out of a vintage store or your grandma's attic. Mind you it was intriguing and carried us to a time and place where 70's inspired geek street fashion is chic. Some of the pieces really threw me off, but styling aside and minus the fur-muppet slides, the floral patterns, retro textiles and easy-going vibe is refreshing. I know - vintage is refreshing? The nonchalant fashion attitude, random dressing, minimal makeup and messy hair makes me feel like we don't have to try so hard - fashion is about expression, so throw on whatever you feel like and wear it like it's 1975!

London Fashion Week: Burberry Prorsum

February 23, 2015
Christopher Bailey is undoubtably my favorite designer and the Burberry Prorsum show is my most anticipated throughout fashion month. This 70's inspired collection was titled Patchwork, Pattern and Prints - I couldn't have said it better.

The bohemian looks were comprised of paisley and floral prints in blue, red, olive green and gray. Patchwork and fringe were the dominant features in this collection. Capes, ponchos, booties and the bucket bag showcased heavy fringe in jewel tones and classic dark tan. The patchwork fringed poncho will definitely be the "it" piece this fall (as was the monogrammed Prorsum poncho from fall 2014). Paired with over the knee suede patchwork boots, bed-head hair and round sunglasses - the epitome of 70's chic. The navy shearling cape is gorgeous and timeless (my favorite piece). And I'm coveting the patchwork fringe booties. This collection is alluring, nostalgic and inspiring.

New York Fashion Week: 3.1 Phillip Lim

February 18, 2015
The Phillip Lim fashion show is my most anticipated during New York fashion week. Much of my closet is lined with Lim designs and I'm anxious to add some of the pieces in this collection to my wardrobe.

This collection was comprised of distressed fabrics (silk and knits), fraying, strapping and layers. Many of Lim's past designs were referenced in this season's collection. The montage of asymmetry, uneven hems and oversized silhouettes showed a slight punk reference and appeared a little erratic. Some of the looks were more subtle, but not without leaving an impression - the long sleeve gray denim jumpsuit and distressed knit sweater atop a burgundy leather skirt were simple (in comparison to the other looks), chic and memorable.

New York Fashion Week: Rag & Bone

February 17, 2015
The Rag & Bone fashion show was just what you would expect from the brand. This season was a compilation of many previous designs - off-beat street fashion with a hip-hop influence. The collection sure was shiny - lurex and nylon skirts, as well as shiny vinyl coats. The 90's inspired collection showcased puffer jackets and bright colors. The knee length skirts atop tailored pants was my favorite combination amongst the many layers in each look. The shiny long camisoles over long sleeve t-shirts was intriguing - this collection was about long over long, layers, mismatched colors and innovative fabrics.

New York Fashion Week: Thakoon

February 16, 2015
Yesterday I mentioned the "mismatched" trend. Well this is what it looks like. Much of the Thakoon collection for fall/winter was comprised of contrast and showcased layers, folding, wrapping, tying, mismatching textures, textiles and prints - I luv it! These mismatched looks and odd silhouettes are unusual, intriguing and anything but boring. This collection has inspired me to mix it up and step out of my comfort zone.

New York Fashion Week: Tibi

February 15, 2015
Last season Tibi showcased fabulous shoes and again the brand has introduced new takes on their previous collection. I need to draw your attention to the fluffy shoes - Though I would never wear them, I luv these shoes!

This arctic inspired collection consisted of loose fitting garments, calming colors and silhouettes that we often see on the Tibi runway. Many of the pieces in this collection are made from super soft materials - who doesn't wanna be wrapped in soft garments! I'm looking forward to the bouclé culottes and fur-shearling coat - so cozy. Although forecasters say mismatching is the "new" trend, Tibi showcased monochromatic looks, from head-to-toe. I'm a huge fan of many shades of one color and hope this trend lasts a little longer.

New York Fashion Week: Charlotte Ronson

February 15, 2015
I want to be this girl! Effortless, feminine and chic. The textiles, color palette and prints in this collection remind me of fall. There are so many pieces in this 60's inspired collection on my "must have" list. I'm really coveting the gray bomber jacket and high waisted pants in carmine red. Ronson is getting unfavorable reviews about this collection, stating her new aesthetic will disappoint customers - this is the first time I've seen her show and I really like this collection! Thus far, this is the most wearable collection I've seen showcased for fall/winter 2015 (for someone at my age and with my lifestyle).

New York Fashion Week: Jason Wu

February 14, 2015
Wu had me at the first look.. The wide collar fur vest and olive green ensemble that opened his show is perfection. I was taken by many of the looks, especially the olive green garments. The collection showcased impeccable tailoring, luxurious fur vests, coats and oversized scarves (gorgeous), crocodile stamped leather and body hugging silks. The long sleeve sheer black dress and sheer beaded sleeveless dress are my most coveted looks from the show - surely the epitome of seduction. Albeit, Jason Wu has changed his aesthetic and is designing luxury sportswear, I love where this path is taking him. If only I had the lifestyle to wear these garments (daydreaming!).

Adidas x Kanye West Fashion Show

February 13, 2015
Yesterday, models walked onto the runway and stood in rows while Kanye West made his Adidas x Kanye West presentation. My first thought - ballerina meets Game of Thrones meets great camping garments! I guess the head-to-toe leotards, knee high socks and bunched boots kinda threw me off at first, but all that aside, each garment displayed atop the leo's screamed Kanye West and his personal style. I like West's style and I loved the show - I might even buy my first Adidas garment in the fall.. There were fifty looks that showcased the men in layers of clothes, slouchy pants, oversized sweaters and nice selection of coats. The women's looks consisted of oversized garments atop sports bras, body suits and leotards - the looks were casual (kinda frumpy), but cool and modern. Day one of New York fashion week fall/winter 2015 and the Adidas x Kanye West "off-beat street fashion" show has already made a big impression.

The Tibi Spring/Summer 2015 collection has finally arrived! This collection is cohesive, but diverse, with flowing materials, structured garments, some fitted and some oversized, wrapping and hand-crafted materials with various textures. The collection is clean, modern and shows an asian influence. I absolutely luv this collection; especially the shoes. The fringe slides and mules (pictured here) are unique, fun and kinda peculiar - I have to have them! My favorite pieces are the Kirsi Slides, Rienhard Straw Hat, Ribbon Fil Culottes, and Juna Jogging pants. My shopping bag is overflowing - I want everything. Visit www.tibi.com to browse my most coveted collection of the season.

How to: Winter Weather Layers

February 04, 2015
Layers are a must during the winter season. Here are some tips on how to stay warm and still look chic while out and about in cold weather. Try layering different textures in various neutral colors. Pictured here: black faux leather leggings, white cotton t-shirt, cropped wool cable knit sweater and pink fur coat. There are no rules that say you have to wear dark colors during the winter, so opt for a light pink or peach color to brighten up your look. With all those layers on top, you need to elongate your bottom with fitted pants in a dark color. Booties and knee high boots in a similar color to your pants will make your legs appear longer. Cover your neck with a scarf and don't forget your wool mittens (cause their cute). Trust me, it's warm and super cozy inside all these layers.

Fabulous Fashion Finds - The Sandy Legging

January 25, 2015
I ordered a pair of Sandy Leggings by Mother from Revolve thinking leggings don't look great on me, but I'll try them anyway. I am beyond impressed with the fit of these leggings - my butt has never looked so good! The material resembles matte faux leather and looks great under a long shirttail button-down and a comfy wool cardigan. Leather pants are on trend this season, but too expensive - the Sandy legging is a great alternative. Splurge and get yourself a pair of these leggings, you will luv them! 

You can purchase these leggings at www.revolveclothing.com (pictured here) or www.shopbop.com.

New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2015

January 24, 2015
New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2015 is just a few weeks away! 80 fashion shows will take place over the span of one week - February 12-19, 2015 (Mercedes Benz Fashion week). Visit Fashion Week Online for the show schedule, photos, LIVE STREAMING and replays. You can also view the collections on vogue.com. I watch the shows attentively and will post my favorite collections, along with a breakdown of trends for Fall/Winter 2015. Stay tuned...

NYFW News: WWD recently reported that Mercedes Benz will not be affiliated with New York Fashion Week after this season. There is speculation that they will sponsor MADE Fashion Week; a younger, modern alternative to NYFW. Many designers have opted to showcase at MADE and other downtown NY locations over the years. Although many brands are seeking alternative events, classic American labels such as DKNY, Donna Karen, Calvin Klein Collection and Michael Kors will showcase at NYFW Fall/Winter 2015.

Trend Inspiration - Denim

January 21, 2015
The denim midi skirt has secured a spot as one of the top denim trends of 2015. The 70's inspired midi skirt seen on many runways for pre-fall went from below the knee, all the way down to the floor. The skirt was shown with buttons, seams, in many shades and in a variety silhouettes. How to wear this trend:

Wear a v-neck cashmere sweater (opt for a feminine, pastel color) tucked into your denim pencil skirt. Pointed-toe pumps in nude suede and a structured top-handle handbag. Pictured here: (NET-A-PORTER) Tibi Denim Midi Skirt and J. Crew Cashmere Sweater.

For a flirty look, opt for a fluted silhouette denim midi skirt, paired with a fitted sweatshirt in neutral colors. Pointed-toe pumps and a structured tote. Pictured here: (NET-A-PORTER) Michael Kors Fluted Denim Skirt and Phillip Lim Sweatshirt.

A patchwork denim midi skirt with a frayed hem is a statement on it's own, so keep it simple on top with a tucked-in gray t-shirt. Accessorize with a cross body bag in pale rose or peach. Pictured here: (NET-A-PORTER) Saint Laurent Patchwork Denim Midi Skirt and Rag & Bone T-shirt.

Sneakers are dominating the footwear category these days. Worn with everything from dresses to jeans and of course joggers.

Gray is the New Black

November 30, 2014
Stay fresh and keep it light this winter in pale pink and gray garments. Pink is incredibly flattering on pale winter complexions and gray is the new black this season!

A MUST HAVE: gray skinny jeans. Pair your skinnies with a light gray t-shirt and loose fitting pink sweater, or go monochromatic and wear gray on gray (my favorite look of the season). For those of you residing in arctic climates, opt for a head-to-toe wool outfit, like these matching Alice+Olivia wool sweater and pants - cozy, warm and fashionable. Change up your holiday party style and wear a graphic t-shirt tucked into a puffy pink skirt - says I'm cute and I'm here to party!

Crew Cashmere Sweater in Pale Pink, Rag & Bone Light Gray T-Shirt, J Brand Dark Gray Skinny Jeans, Available at Shopbop -  ElevenParis T-Shirt, Available at ALICE+OLIVIA - Alice+Oliva Oversized Cashmere Cardigan and Knit Pants.

The Promenade de la Croisette

November 25, 2014
The Promenade de la Croisette in Cannes, France just became one of my favorite streets to shop. Boulevard de la Croisette is a mere 3 km lined with premiere shops, hotels, restaurants and casinos. Oh and it happens to run along the Mediterranean Sea and overlooks hundreds of fabulous yachts. It is so beautiful, quaint and special - it's almost too perfect! 

The premiere designer shops are small box-like stand alone stores. I have never seen a shopping district like this before. Premiere designer stores are usually very large and impressive from the street view, but the stores in Cannes were small and quaint. Even more surprising was the service I received from the sales personal (and store security); everyone was friendly! This is not common in most premiere designer stores. The sales people at Louis Vuitton and Fendi were welcoming, attentive and provided exceptional service. It makes your shopping experience so much better when people treat you nicely - and you're more likely to return to that location in the future *something all sales personnel should keep in mind. 

I always visit the premiere designer district in every city, even if only for a coffee and to watch the shoppers go by. The Promenade de la Croisette in Cannes has left an impression on me - I'm already talking about visiting again next summer!

Is everything on trend this season?

October 21, 2014
Being someone who has studied fashion, thrives on fashion trends and blogs about fashion, even I'm confused and pose the question, "Is everything on trend this season?" What's the point of reporting trends, if practically everything is popular right now? I read magazines and browse the internet regularly to keep in the know about fashion trends. I feel like if one were to compile all the trends every magazine and fashion site were reporting this month, anything goes! It would be easier to report whats not on trend. This can be very confusing for women trying to keep up with fashion, not to mention expensive. Let's recap shoe trends for fall 2014 - running shoes, chunky heels, pointed toe pumps, metallic shoes, slip-ons, combat boots, over the knee boots, oxfords, smoking slippers, statement shoes...the list goes on and on.

There are few new trends this season, like oversized pastel coats, structured garments, and running shoes worn with everything from casual daywear to dresses and tailored looks, but everything else is just past trends re-visited. I'll admit, I do covet some of histories trends, like folkloric fashion and androgyny from the eighties, but I'd like to see something new and exciting. I want to feel inspired by fashion. Like most of you, I am left sifting through the exuberant amount of fashion "must haves" and trying to find something that stands out. I guess the takeaway here is anything goes! 

I realize I am contradicting myself as a fashion blogger. Normally, I would spend too much money on clothing and accessories for fall, and by the time the leaves change all of these trends will be out. This season, I'm gonna take a break, explore my closet and opt for a style that is my own.

Fashions Finest On-Line Shopping

October 12, 2014
I'm an avid on-line shopper! I make 85% of my fashion and cosmetics purchases on-line, rather than visiting malls or shopping street side stores. Shopping on-line is superior to in-store shopping mostly due to the vast selection and ability to search for items unavailable in your area. 

On-line apparel and accessory sites like Shopbop and NET-A-PORTER publish lookbooks that showcase items from various designers/labels together - it's like having a personal stylist. The photos provided for each item allow you to see how the garments fit and which items to pair it with. Clothes look better on a model than on a hanger.. I luv lookbooks! Magazines are also a great media for inspiration and list every item, so you can search the internet and purchase anything that is published. Harpers Bazaar magazine has launched an on-line shopping site that allows readers to browse and purchase many of the items in the magazine. My fashion inspiration often comes from magazines and lookbooks.

My morning ritual consists of coffee and browsing on-line shopping sites. First on my list is Shopbop. This site carries many of my favorite designers/labels and posts new items each day. Shopbop stylists have great taste and showcase different brands together well. There is a section under each item "wear it with" that allows you to recreate the outfit pictured. Shopbop also publishes great lookbooks daily. They currently have 862 brands (I counted), such as Alice + Olivia, Phillip Lim, Elizabeth and James, as well as premiere designer names like Saint Laurent and Marchesa. Shopbop has a vast selection to suit everyones personal style. Shopbop has free shipping and returns. Included in your package you will find a prepaid return label that ensures a free return if you send the item back within seven days of receiving it. This allows you enough time to try on your items and decide whether you will keep them. 

I recently discovered NET-A-PORTER and quickly became obsessed with browsing the new arrivals, the magazine's page, and the stylish combinations of apparel and accessories showcased listed under "how to wear it". Each item has photos from many angles, up close so you can see the material and full body shots. What sets NET-A-PORTER apart are the videos posted next to each item showcasing the look. NET-A-PORTER has brands I haven't seen on another on-line shopping site, like Kate Moss for Topshop, and high brands such as Victoria Beckham, Stella McCartney and Proenza Schouler. If anything, this site will inspire you!

For premiere designer items my go-to on-line shopping site is Shop Bazaar. If I had to sum up this site in one word - trendy! There are currently 330 brands including Burberry Prorsum, Dolce & Gabbana, Emilio Pucci, The Row... It's designer apparel and accessories heaven! There is a "In the Magazine" page featuring items from the latest edition, as well as a "Trends" page for current fashion inspiration.

Folk Luxe

October 05, 2014
Reminisce a traditional time in Russian, Eastern Europe and Native American history. The return of historic folk costume gives you a sense of romanticism and a feeling of warmth.

Folk Luxe fashion is inspired by cultures from around the world. The nostalgic trend is comprised of ethnic prints in black, brown, orange, yellow, red and cream. Knits made from alpaca, mohair and wool blends were seen all over the runways for fall 2014. Folk fashion is about mixing prints and patterns, layering, and vintage accessories. Ikat and forest animal prints dominate this trend - the traditional imagery comprised of warm colors portray culture and sentiment. Express your joyful sensibility in owl, fox and deer prints. 

Visit NET-A-PORTER.COM and browse the shearling vests, ponchos and heavy knits in prints inspired by nations around the world.

Like A Boy

September 28, 2014
My most coveted trend for fall 2014 is loose garments with masculine characteristics. This androgynous trend is modern, sophisticated and intriguing. Androgyny is about mixing your feminine and masculine pieces. Opt for boxy and structured cuts, combined with a silk camisole in neutral colors; tailored pants with high heels, oxfords or sneakers and loose sweatshirts or a bomber jacket. This trend is about loose cuts, unisex garments and neutral colors. 

Ladies, you don't need to show off every curve to make a statement, so get rid of those skinny jeans and go for a modern, clean, androgynous look. Visit NET-A-PORTER.COM and browse their vast collection of tailored pants, sports jackets, sweaters, and masculine shoes for women.

Floral prints and ornamentation are pretty, feminine and a must this summer.

The Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer 2014 collection showcased a variety of apparel and accessories featuring flowers in pastel colors, floral appliqués, and gorgeous feminine floral prints. I took my summer wardrobe inspiration from this show.. I'm drawn to anything floral! The Dolce & Gabbana floral print inspired by the almond tree can be found on many D&G garments, shoes, and bags.

Summer shoe trends are all about color, so put your beige and black shoes away! The pointed toe pump is a classic style that elongates your legs and gives you a polished look. Manolo Blahnik is famous for designing pumps in many colors and materials. These turquoise suede Manolo's look great on tanned legs and add a pop of color to a neutral outfit. Wear your vibrant colored pumps with jeans and t-shirt or an all white classic summer look.

The d'orsay flat is making a huge appearance this summer. These flats have a closed or open toe, a heel cup and the sides are cut out. I'm not a big fan of flat shoes, but I'm loving this style. These Phillip Lim d'orsay flats come in many colors; black, blue, and a variety of color combinations. This summer is all about colorful shoes, so opt for a pastel pink or bright yellow.

Dolce & Gabbana Sicily Dauphine Top Handle Bag

July 20, 2014
I LOVE the Dolce & Gabbana Sicily Dauphine Top Handle Bag. I had planned to buy a fabulous handbag during my recent trip to Paris, so of course I went to Dolce & Gabbana. It was on the street (staring at the window display) where I fell in love with this unique statement bag.
