Trend Alert: Gingham Everything

I’ve been wearing gingham since last Fall, but with the arrival of Summer, the popularity of this classic print has exploded – from off-the-shoulder tops to wide leg trousers to skirts and dresses, it’s absolutely everywhere.   I know, you’re thinking gingham is just a little too picnic table-esque or farmhouse for your taste or wardrobe, but this…

Summer Weddings: Peach Eyelet Lace Halter Dress, White Pinko Love Bag, Nude Woven Point Toe Pumps and Tom Ford Cat Eye Sunglasses

Wedding season is upon us and if you have as many invitations as I do this summer, you’re also thinking, “What am I going to wear to all of these events without breaking the bank?”  The beauty about summer is that you can get away with lighter fabrics and generally less expensive pieces as events…

Trend Alert: The Wide Leg Trouser

This Spring, the super wide-leg trouser is the go-to pant silhouette.  Finally, a refreshing change from the super skinny pant silhouette, which I find so difficult to pull off due to my not so skinny, but rather athletic legs.  Back in the day, circa late 90’s/early 2000’s, I think these babies were better known as…

Pajama Party: Silk Pajama Shirt, Skinny Black Trousers, Black Leather Motorcycle Jacket, Slip On Smoking Shoes, and Burgundy Wide Brim Fedora

I can’t remember the last time I tried to pass on jammies as outside clothing (other than on my weekend trips to Duane Reade), but who am I to stand in the way of  a fashion trend that promotes comfort? [Much like my obsession with the athleisure trend].   I’ll be the first to admit…

Embroidered Everything: Embroidered Floral Mesh Top, Vintage Jeans, Floral Embroidered Faux Suede Stacked Pump, Charcoal Faux Fur Parka and Chanel Classic Flap Bag

Embroidery is everywhere…on tops, dresses, bombers, jeans, heels, etc. etc. … and I’m loving it.  I know, you’re thinking childhood needlework projects or grandma’s tapestries, but I promise you it’s everything right now and the easiest way to make any simple look special. And, if Anna Wintour and those of her ilk are wearing it, you know it’s “fashion.” This…

Sporty Chic: Jersey Tank Dress, Adidas Superstar Sneakers, Oversized Cat Eye Sunglasses, Floral Rhinestone Ear Cuff and Stacked Gold Cuff Bracelets

Anyone who knows me well, knows that I don’t often go “casual.”  But, athletic-inspired styles (also known as the athleisure trend), like sneakers, racing-stripes, mesh, sweatpants and work-out coords, have been all over the runways and on your favorite celebs for the last few seasons with no signs of slowing down.  So, why not embrace…

Festival Flare: Lace-Up Front Crop with Bell Sleeves, Distressed Denim Cutoffs, Medallion Choker and Platform Sandals

It’s festival season – that time of year when hippie/flower child inspiration runs wild.  And, even if you won’t be spinning around at Gov Ball or Coachella this summer, who said you can’t incorporate some of that care-free boho flare into your wardrobe? Denim cut-offs, headbands, fringe, bohemian frocks, quirky sunnies…all make the list for festival fashion essentials,…
