Friday Frocks: Life’s a Beach

By |January 13th, 2012|Friday Frocks, Why Did You Wear That?|

Can you pass me the SPF, please?  Oh… right.  It’s snowing here.  That means a couple of things.  1. It’s time for me to go home (to California).  2. It’s also time to transport myself (mentally) to a place with warm breezes, cool cocktails, and soft white sand.  How does one do that you ask?  Well, first of all, whip yourself up a strawberry daiquiri, put on some Bob Marley, and then peruse these vacation worthy frocks.  After you’ve convinced yourself you’re somewhere warm, head over to Jet Setter and start booking your next exotic getaway.

Look for Less: Leather and Legs

By |December 11th, 2011|Look for Less, Why Did You Wear That?|

A way to bring a little edge to any outfit is by adding a bit of leather.  If a leather jacket feels too predictable and leather pants just really aren’t going to happen, a leather skirt may be a great way to incorporate this trend.  Whether you winterize your look with a cozy sweater and opaque tights or sport a bare leg and sky high heels, be sure to mix in a more modest top.  You don’t want to look like a lady who belongs on a corner of Hollywood Boulevard.  Check out these three leather looks worn by some fresh faced celebrities:

1. Juicy Couture Candy Pink Cotton Lace Top, $110, 2. Andrew Marc Tristina Leather Skirt, $350, 3. Emitations Flora’s Sterling Silver Heart Charm Bracelet, $75, 4. Report Stamos Patent Pumps, $56.99

1.  By Malene Birger Luvina Lace Blouse, $224, 2. Naven Biker Skirt, $154, 3. Urban Outfitters Sheer Tights, $12, 4. White House Black Market Rosette Clutch, $34, 5. TopShop Galleria Patent Mary Janes, $92

1. Qi Cashmere Long Time Ruched Turtleneck, $147, 2. Schumacher Faux Leather Skirt, $319, 3. Tarte LipSurgence in Charmed, $24, 4. Mod Cloth Tights for Every Occasion, $14.99, 5. Frye Harlow Oxford Bootie, $197.95

Why Did You Wear That: Peaches n’ Cream

By |January 18th, 2011|Personal Style, Why Did You Wear That?|

I was so excited to see some of my favorite shades on the red carpet this past weekend.  I especially loved the color of the Calvin Klein that Emma Stone wore (despite the fact that I was a bit turned off that her hair and skin matched -monochromatic much?).  Anyway, any good reason to post pictures of amazingly lovely shades of nudes and peach and I’m in.  I really do adore the mix of peach (or sherbert) and nude together especially in a simple sophisticated silhouette.  The trick? Do not physically MATCH the color of your dress!
