The Look #22: The prettiest trend for Spring Summer ’17….Eyelet & Crochet Lace

Just loving all the pretty crochet & lace tops & romantic dresses for the Spring Summer season….Here in NYC we are still anxiously waiting for Spring to officially be sprung, but in the meantime it’s fun to plan & dream about all the pretty things to wear when it’s warm!

Also, if you are like me & just cannot wait, it’s fun to mix some new spring items (dresses & blouses) in with some of your fave winter items & to layer different pieces for that transitional season from winter to spring.

Here’s one of my favorite new Instagram looks that’s feminine & chic & also combines a few of my favorite winter items

Crochet & Lace tops & dresses are pretty styles that are so girly & fun. Add a little edge by combining them with ripped jeans & boots or more hard edged accessories that have fringe, studs or metallic hardware.

Get inspired by this romantic rock n’ roll trend for Fall Winter 2016…..The Inspiration: “Studs N’ Roses”

The romantic look continues for fall 2016, this time adding an edge with washed out & ripped denim, metallic rock studs, leather & lace. 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 chiffon blouse with a studded jacket and ripped jeans, or a flowing rose print dress with a rock n roll jacket. Combining a lace top or dress 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”

Get inspired….

The Look #5: Sweet Summer

Sometimes it feels so good to put on something that’s just simply pretty! And what better time than for summertime in the city ? Lately I’m loving all the sweet pastels, muted tone romantic looks and ethereal dresses. You can toughen something sweet & soft with a little bit more of a hard edged accessory. Here is some inspiration & a touch of romance for a “Sweet Summer in the City” look.
