Ruffles, Embroidery & Metallics

 HOW TO START WEARING THE NEW SPRING TRENDS IN WINTER…


Lately, I’ve been dreaming about the upcoming spring summer season & finding ways to start adding in the new style trends into my current winter look. I’ve been loving all things PINK and RUFFLED with METALLIC accessories, pastel hued FAUX FUR & bold EMBROIDERIES. It’s also fun to play with different fabric textures & SATIN is definitely set to replace fall’s VELVET looks this spring.

You can wear SATIN & RUFFLES for day & mix with RIPPED DENIM & boots, or dress it up for night time with heels and bold accessories. Speaking about accessories…it’s a fun way to get a jump on the spring summer trends  a little bit early.

I wore this ZARA faux fur coat with a TOPSHOP satin ruffle top (on sale!), my favorite J BRAND ripped jeans & new TOPSHOP metallic booties (on sale!) &  embroidered handbag. This is such a fun & affordable look!

Stepping into January with optimism & thinking about bright & happy days……the best is yet to come…… Happy 2017

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….

Winter White, Lace & Ripped Denim

rock-paper-sequinsimg_6967

What are your favorite go-to looks?

Lately, I’ve been wearing different faux-fur jackets with ripped denim skinny jeans, a feminine blouse (hopefully with lots of ruffles) & booties. It’s becoming a sort of winter uniform for my casual days here in NYC. But now that winter is here it can be a challenge not to wear too much black clothing all the time. It’s fun to mix things up in the colder months with some pops of color or something unexpected like a white coat.

I wore this vintage Juicy Couture faux fur jacket with a Style Mafia lace trim off the shoulder top, J Brand ripped denim  & black suede booties & the handbag is from Betsey Johnson.

Stepping into December & twinning with my sweet doggie Louise! Have been getting excited about the holidays, some new projects I’ve been working on and all that’s to come in 2017.

XO,

Zoe

CHEETAH DRESS & FAUX FUR JACKET IN BROOKLYN

img_6558new

Fall is here! It’s been such a long time since I’ve been on the East Coast during the fall season & I’m so excited about all the pretty leaves changing color & the cooler temperatures here in NYC. I’ve also really been loving the latest new wave/ rock n’ roll/ 80’s MTV inspired collections from Marc Jacobs & Isabel Marant, so when I  found this dress on one of my recent vintage shopping adventures I was really excited because it reminded me of these emerging trends. I’ve always been a leopard & cheetah print kinda girl, but I really liked how this dress has bright pops of color in blue and purple to contrast with black.

Even though it’s fall I still like a bit of color to brighten things up. I like to style my unique vintage and thrift shop finds with whatever I’m currently wearing that’s new or on repeat.

I wore this vintage dress with my favorite faux fur jacket. I found this cozy jacket last year from Nasty Gal, but you can find similar ones here & here. I added my new black Sam Edelman suede boots, favorite pink suede Monserat de Luca fringe bag, Prada sunglasses, Topshop velvet choker & Calleen Cordero leather bracelets.

I always love wearing simple boots with dresses and also like the feeling of throwing on a furry & cozy jacket to give the outfit a bit of texture and edge. This is a fun & playful look that will take you from day into night….

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.
