Lust item: Stud Knucklebox Clutch

In Accessories on May 18, 2012 at 11:44 am

I’m totally lusting after Alexander McQueen’s knuckle clutches – this one in particular!  This Bi-color Stud Knucklebox Clutch is outstanding! The silver and gold studded leather skull with Swarovski crystal rings makes this an instant statement piece.

Ah — a girl can wish, right?

Look Great in Leopard

In Entertainment on August 23, 2011 at 2:21 pm

Leopart print is hot again and better and brighter than ever! Each fall, we see the influx of leopard heels, blouses and cardigans, and this season is no different. Take a hint from Sarah Jessica Parker and Nicky Hilton (in their grey leopard jeans) and transition from summer to fall seamlessly by adding a few key animal print pieces to your wardrobe. Here are some of my favorite animal print items!

There is a rule to leopard print — and all animal print in general–too much is not a good thing. Never wear a leopard print jumper but do pair a leopard cardigan with a solid color pencil skirt and white blouse. Less is more here.

Tinley Road Ladylike Faux Fur Jacket in Leopard $79.00

BB Dakota Bridget Blouse in Leopard $80.00

Current/Elliott The Leopard Stiletto in grey leopard $198.00 (as seen on SJP and Nicky Hilton above)

Shimmering Legs

In Fashion on July 13, 2011 at 5:56 pm

Kate Middleton’s latest contribution to fashion: pantyhose. After two straight weeks of pairing knockout designer dresses with ’80s-style sheer stockings, the Duchess of Cambridge has proven that everything she touches—really everything—turns to style gold.

Already, the trend has caught on in the UK, with a significant spike in nude hosiery sales since Kate’s made them part of her dressing routine, according to the Daily Mail.

Vix’s Vixens

In Fashion on April 5, 2011 at 11:03 am

Summer is upon us and what better way to kick off the season than with a new bikini! Vix Swimwear is one of my favorite brands because it’s durable, super cute and comes in great colors! Vix’s name actually comes from the stunning beach city of Vitoria in Brazil, where founder Paula Hermanny was brought up and dreamed her first dreams of the style she wanted to bring to women’s bathing suits.

My favorite part of Vix Swimwear is the fact that the bathing suits come in either Brazilian Cut or Full Cut. I happen to love Brazilian bikinis because I think they make your rear look cuter. Also, the tops of their bikinis are adjustable with a sliding tubes. You can make your bikini demure or vixified in a matter of seconds!

Buy It: Vix
Cost: $75+ for top or bottom ($150 total)

Little Black Dress

In Fashion on March 17, 2011 at 11:25 am

Having one standby LBD is great because you always have something to wear. However, it sometimes helps to have mulitple black dresses to work with different occasions. This All Saints Misae Dress is a voluminous puffy dream that works for a spring garden party or an evening cocktail with coworkers. The heavily washed dress creates a soft hand feel and drape and the skirt volume is created using pleating and tucking technique. Pair with vibrant red pumps or bedazzled flats.

Shout It Out

In Home on January 13, 2011 at 4:25 pm

Spills are never sexy and a red splotch on your favorite cream silk blouse is infuriating. Fear messy meals no more (and forget about the plastic restaurant bib) because Shout Wipes instant stain removers are here to save the day. If you don’t pack these bad boys in your purse (or murse) already, you need to…stat. I’ve tried every portable stain remover out there (yeah..I’m talking about you Tide Stick) and none of them work with the same potency that Shout Wipes work. These little guys kick serious butt on stains and the wipes never dry out because they are individually sealed in little packets.

Couple of side notes: be sure to follow the instructions (moving the wipe in a circular motion), and stick to less-fragile apparel (may not be great for your Prada silk dress).

These are a purse must-have…get them.

Buy It: Amazon
Cost: $6.75 (box of 12)

Swing Batter Batter

This season’s big hitter, and inspired by California cool-tastic surf scene, is the Baseball Jacket. Isabel Marant is the clean up hitter with this style and she is styling these vintage jackets with embroidered washed silk and paired with skinny crops pants and pointy toe pumps. Isabel Marant seems to always know exactly what chic modern women want to wear and then she creates them in such an appealing and stylish way. So batter up and swing for the fences!
