The Look # 15-Faux Fur & Ruffles- Winter Chic

Winter is here! And it’s so cold out! I’m spending my first winter in ages in NYC and it’s a bit of a shock to the system after so many years in sunny California. But still, it can be fun to bundle up when the temperatures drop. The super cold weather is no an excuse to stop looking cute, but still it can be a bit of a challenge at times.

This winter season I’m loving cozy faux fur jackets and the cutest sweaters with ruffles and lace-up details paired with denim and fun booties. There’s so much cute stuff out there in the stores right now…. Also, why not add some unexpected dashes of color to your winter outfits? Too much black & grey will leave you feeling drab, so throw in some shots of bold color with your neutrals to instantly lift up your mood. Then pile on chic layers and top off with your scarf, hat, gloves & a cool statement bag & you’re good to go…..

Here’s some inspiration to create your own winter casual look that will keep you feeling chic & warm….

THE LOOK: FUN. CASUAL. CHIC- “Faux Fur & Ruffles”

The Look #13- Retro Glam

The holiday season is upon us….and it’s time to start thinking about all those fun events and parties & what you’ll be wearing this season….I’ve been loving all the 80’s inspired styles that are in the stores right now as well as some of the “New Wave” inspired collections that are coming soon for Resort 2017. These fun, over the top and truly optimistic styles provide just the escape we need right now. Pile on the glitsy glam and bring out the bling….then go out and have some fun!

I’m loving this dressed up Glam look that’s mixed with edgy embellished leather, ripped denim, metallic rock studs, sleek metallics and cool animal prints. For a play on contrasts, combine a ruffled blouse with a studded jacket and leather jeans, or a sexy metallic dress with a velvet jacket. Combine different fabrics, textures & prints for a retro-modern look. These looks are party perfect for all of your end of the year events. Get the latest….. “Retro Glam”

THE LOOK: SEXY. RETRO. COOL

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

Throwback Style Inspiration……….. The Icon: Jimi Hendrix- “Wild Thing”

One of my favorite style icons from the late 60’s is the ultimate rock star Jimi Hendrix. A true free spirit, he crafted & styled his own unique look filled with billowy shirts, eclectic prints & velvet pants. His outfits exploded with colors & patterns that expressed timeless style and gave us a window into his true essence. His look was part psychedelic, part luxury & part thrift shop style & adding with his electric guitar…he was the ultimate rock star. His music, stage performances and costumes were truly….an Experience.

I love how he mixed rich jewel tone colors like purple with pink & turquoise, copper with brown & gold as well as cool fabric combinations of velvet with silk & satin with brocade. His outfits were stunning, original & unique….

Retro Modern. Bohemian. Luxurious

get inspired…
