Happy New Year! The Best #Outfitposts of 2016

Happy New Year Babes! I hope you are all excited about 2017…..I know I’m excited for this new beginning and the chance to start over again….I don’t know if I really believe in New Year’s resolutions though….I feel like the beginning of the year is just a good time to asses everything you’ve accomplished and to plan ahead for the goals you want to achieve going forward.

One thing I’ve learned is that setting goals is fun, but actually working towards your goals takes determination & commitment. You really have to decide what you want to do & then just go ahead and really do it. Do the work. Take the daily steps that you need to do to move towards your goal. And believe in yourself! Because at the end of the day it really is about the daily journey and not the end result. It’s really all about the person that you become while you are on that journey….

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….

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….

The Look # 9- Grunge Meets Glam

The fall season is upon us & I’m looking forward to cooler temperatures. I’m loving a lot of the fall 2016 fashion trends, but I’m especially excited about the 90’s trend that’s been emerging lately. One of my favorite time periods in fashion history is the early 90’s when Anna Sui had her first runway show, Marc Jacobs creating his “Grunge” collection for Perry Ellis and a young Kate Moss burst onto the scene.

I loved Kate Moss’s effortless personal style & feminine but rock and roll spirit.  I also loved the rich colors, fabrics, prints & jewelry of the early 90’s that are just as inspirational today as they were back then.

I’m so looking forward to wearing animal prints, velvet, plaid & washed out denim this fall. Also love the look of dreamy flowing chiffon print dresses & tops with motorcycle boots.

Here’s some outfit inspiration for a 90’s inspired look for this Fall season…………..

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
