Currently Craving: Gloves

Gloves and mittens are a tricky accessory – I used to maintain the belief that they were merely a hindrance, a superfluous addition that served virtually the same purpose as pockets (which I am able to insert and remove my hand from with ease when I need to). On the other hand (har har), I feel I am missing a shopping, er fashion, opportunity… Well, that and how amazing are leather gloves for clapping at a hockey game? Thus, here is a round-up of some mittens and gloves that I am just dying to get my hands on in…

Currently Graving: Gloves
Clockwise from top (Tan Leather): Mulberry, Miu Miu, French Connection, Causse Gantier, Tory Burch, Rag & Bone, Cole Haan, Bruno Cucinelli, Vivienne Westwood, Lanvin, Burberry, Coach, and Asos (the Must-Have)
P.S. Hope you all had a great weekend!

Thanksgiving Style Inspiration

What to Wear: Thanksgiving Edition
Whether your Thanksgiving feast is fancy or laid-back, I’ve got you covered with three different outfit ideas for the upcoming holiday.
Look 1: If a dress is required, opt for something easy and fluid, like this All Saints jersey dress (LOVE the asymmetrical hem!).  Combining grays and browns is modern, and it looks very luxe… It is a great way to take a simple gray dress like this and bump it up a notch for the holiday. Add delicate gold jewelry and comfortable leopard flats to pull it all together.
AllSaints Dress, Rag & Bone Belt, J.Crew Leopard Flats, Gorjana Necklace, Chloe Ring, PS Bag
Look 2: Holidays are an opportunity for dressing up, right? Try a feminine midi-skirt with a slim metallic-gray tank. The skirt speaks for itself, so top the look off with a similar gray-hued coat for minimalist chic. The finishing touches? Ankle booties and a stack of multi-metallic bangles.
Lanvin Skirt, Valentino Tank, Zero + Maria Cornejo Coat, Balenciaga Booties, Barneys NY Trouser Socks, BCBG Envelope Clutch, Miss Selfridge Bangles
Look 3: Planning to eat A LOT and lounge on the couch watching football? (Me too…) Then jeans, a cozy sweater, and a chic scarf is the look for you. Heeled leather booties and gold accessories, like this watch and jeweled studs, dress the look up a little.
D & G Jeans, Burberry Brit Sweater, Lanvin Scarf, Mango Booties, Michael Kors Watch, Target Studs

I am craving tweed jackets for Fall, so here are three different ways to style this Faith Connexion piece for the office, a date, and for casual-wear. Instead of a solid blouse underneath, opt for a pretty floral print at the office to keep the outfit fresh and light. Pointed-toe flats and some sparkle at the wrist pull the look together. For evening, what is better than a LBD? Complete the look with a statement necklace and interesting shoes in the same hue. To dress down the tweed jacket, choose flattering boot-cut jeans, a cool and comfortable Tee (I am obsessed with this one from Etsy), and beautiful, leather booties. How will you wear tweed this Fall?

Met Gala Round Up

As usual, the beautiful people brought it at the Met Gala last week. Here are some of my favorite looks of the night:

My number one spot definitely goes to Emma Stone, who looked stunning in this Lanvin number. The color is nothing short of beautiful against her skin tone and hair color.

The other looks that I completely love include…

Camilla Belle in Ralph Lauren

Gisele Bundchen in Givenchy

Jessica Biel in Prada

Victoria Justice in McQ by Alexander McQueen

Gwyneth Paltrow in Prada

1 Piece, 3 Ways: Denim Vest

1 Piece, 3 Ways: Denim Vest
Coincidentally, after starting this post three of my guy friends wore denim vests as a joke. Let’s just say, it wasn’t pretty. So, I am giving you three fun and funky ways to rock the denim vest, but… just don’t lend it to the boys. For the first look, I took a classic, white lace dress and added trendy pieces, like the vest, a neon belt, and chevron print platform sandals. The next look is more casual. I mixed dark denim jeans with the lighter denim vest, then added a cool, skull tank and white brogues. Add some color with a bold, orange bag like this gorgeous one from Rebecca Minkoff. For the last look, I layered the vest with a star-print maxi and a pink slouchy tank. Wear chic ankle booties to complete the look. Will you be layering with a denim vest this Spring/Summer? Which style is your favorite? You can purchase the denim vest featured above at Madewell for $88!
