All the Best Ruffles & Statement Sleeves for Spring/ Summer….The Look #24

Lately I’m loving pretty pastel colors, cotton shirting fabrics & delicate lace. There are so many gorgeous ruffled tops & fabulous statement sleeves in the stores right now…Embrace these pretty looks with edgy vibes in these Spring/ Summer favorites…The off the shoulder look is still going strong, but why not change it up a bit in a one shoulder style or an asymmetrical ruffled blouse? This is THE season of the dramatic blouse & it looks great with distressed denim: jeans, skirts or shorts. Pair this look with some amazing new flatform shoes & a dramatic or playful new handbag for an effortless & chic look.

Here’s one of my favorite new Instagram looks that’s feminine & chic & also affordable….

Throwback Style Inspiration…..Sixties Style Icon-Jean Shrimpton

Who is on your fashion radar this spring? Some people always have their favorite style icons & others get inspired by the trends & have new icons each season….and as the sunshine begins to replace the snow & the winter season goes, it’s time to get inspired for Spring Summer 2017! Usually I’m always inspired by those who are a little offbeat & bold, but right now I’m so loving all the retro floral prints & pretty dresses that were on the SS17 runways, as well as all the feminine chiffons, ruffles upon ruffles, crisp cotton tops & of course the color PINK. This brings to mind the retro-modern days of the swinging sixties where women got into music, art & the “mod pop fashion scene” of London.

 

This season, I’m inspired by Jean Shrimpton in the 1960’s. 

 

Jean Shrimpton is an English model and actress. She was considered “The Face of the 60’s” & was one of the first supermodels! She had an amazing, memorable & truly timeless style that still resonates today….I love her feminine yet modern look.

The Look- Retro. Modern. Feminine

get inspired…

Paris Fashion Week-FW 2017 Style Trend: “The Madness of Glamour”

It’s all about GLAMOUR for the Fall 17 season from Paris Fashion Week. “When the going gets tough, the tough dress up” and there was a feeling of dressing up against all odds, against all the madness of the world….

I especially loved the collections of Miu Miu, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Saint Laurent & Isabel Marant. There were lovely faux fur coats in sweet pastels and fall brights. Dresses were embellished with metallics and lace. The overall feeling was eclectic, RETRO-kitch and psychedelic. I’m loving the pretty dresses, tailored coats, delicate ruffle trims, metallics & retro embellishments.

HERE ARE SOME OF MY FAVORITE LOOKS FROM PARIS Fashion Week for Fall Winter 2017.

The latest look is “THE MADNESS OF GLAMOUR”

Get inspired….

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….

Zoe

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

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
