The Look You Need For The Holidays- “ROCK N ROLL SEQUINS” #Holidaystyle

Happy November! It’s hard to believe that 2018 is winding down & there are only 6 weeks left of this year! I’m getting excited for the holidays & the chance to get a little dressed up for different events. This season I’ve been really feeling a Disco meets Rock N Roll vibe with lots of “glam & glitter” and my favorite….sequins! I thought it would be fun to put together an assortment of disco inspired outfits for the party season in different price categories….no matter what your budget is there’s always something cute to find to get dressed up in.

I generally like to keep my holiday looks on the casual side and to mix them with some edgier accessories like a studded handbag or some sleek rock n roll style boots. But it’s always fun to play with different looks especially when you have a fun party (or 2) to attend!

Wishing you a happy & healthy holiday season with lots of style, fun & glamour!

Here are some of my favorite looks for the fall/winter holiday season…..

Rose Bouquet Print Dress & Moto Jacket

img_6600

I’ve been loving wine, berry & pink tones this season. They are the perfect colors to wear now to brighten up your wardrobe while still feeling like you are dressing for fall. I was so excited to find this printed chiffon dress in exactly the color I was looking for and also love the pretty floral print, ruffles & overall retro vibe. It’s a great dress for layering and would also look good worn over jeans or high boots.

I wore this Band Of Gypsies long sleeve dress with my Zara moto jacket & added my new black Sam Edelman suede boots, pink suede Monserat de Luca fringe bag, Prada sunglasses & a Topshop velvet choker.

I love wearing boots with dresses and these have a great block heel that is really comfortable for stomping around the city and would also look great with either jeans or dresses. I like how the jacket and boots add a bit of toughness to an otherwise feminine look.

The Look #12: “Studs n’ Roses”

The romantic look continues for fall 2016, this time adding an edge with washed out & ripped denim, metallic rock studs, leather jackets & lace tops. The classic black Moto jacket & simple denim have been adorned with bold rose print embroidery & silver studs….

For a play on contrasts, combine a ruffled lace blouse with a studded jacket and ripped jeans, or a flowing rose print with a rock n roll jacket. Combining lace with studs takes a sweet feminine look over the edge and into the dark side….

A little bit retro, a little bit 80’s & a little bit rock star….the latest look is “Studs N’ Roses”

THE LOOK: SEXY. CASUAL. COOL

HERE’S SOME OUTFIT INSPIRATION FOR THE LOOK #12….”STUDS N’ ROSES”

ALL THE INSPIRATION YOU NEED FOR YOUR 90’S STYLE WARDROBE- THE INSPIRATION #6-“Like Teen Spirit”

  So….that 90’s feeling has been in the air lately….you see in on television, in music and in fashion. From 90’s Icon Winona Ryder starring in the hit sci-fi  Netflix show “Stranger Things”….

And continuing with some of the current street style pics from NY Fashion Week, I think it’s safe to say….the 90’s are back!

Some people hated the style of the 90’s and some people loved it, but from Grunge to Glam to Baby doll Rock n Roll, there’s a fun & modern way to bring back the style of the & keep it looking cool & fresh……

There’s nothing like the grey sky and cool air of fall to get you in the mood for something a little bit darker, tougher & stronger…..& to channel the vibes from the Pacific Northwest, where some of the most well known grunge bands originated.

I also love the whole 90’s baby doll rock n’ roll look of Courtney Love from Hole & the way she mixed a little dress with fishnets, dark lipstick, smudged eyeliner and a cool guitar.

Here’s some images to get inspired for the new look: Modern 90’s

THE ICON #7 KATE MOSS- 90’S Style Icon

Even though I’m sad that summer is finally coming to an end, there are new things to be excited about once the weather gets colder, and that’s new fall clothing of course! As the season begins to change and the leaves start to fall, it’s time to get into that back to school feeling and start planning your new wardrobe…..

This is my first fall on the East coast after a long time of living in California & I’m excited to experience a real shift in seasons again. I’m loving all the fall 2016 style trends and looking forward to wearing animal prints, velvet, faux leather & suede as well as dreamy flowing chiffon dresses & tops with boots.

The first fashion icon I thought of to follow for Fall 2016 is the always stylish & forever timeless Kate Moss. I love her effortless personal style & feminine but rock and roll spirit.  But, I also remember her 90’s look from her early modeling days that feels so inspiring for this current season. The rich colors, plush fabrics, bold prints & jewelry of the early 90’s are just as inspirational today as they were back then. Here’s to you, Kate Moss- one of the most iconic models of all time!

“Never complain, never explain.” Kate Moss
