COUTURE TO COPY:

QUILTED PUMPS

 

I really love how these simple quilted pumps by Brian Atwood make such a style-statement… “I’m Classy but Love A Little Drama”.

I must have these pump … really how can you not? They are so appropriate for work, not just another boring basic black pump, but still conservative enough… and yet put on your perfect LBD on the weekends they are just as stylish!

CLICK HERE: MANIAC PATENT HIGH-HEEL PLATFORM BASIC PUMP, Brian Atwood $584

At just under $600 it might be a deal-breaker for some but don’t fret my dear… I found you a pair for under $100.

 CLICK HERE: Paris Hilton “Coco” Quilted Pumps, $94.99

Can’t spare even $100 this month? No worries… Kim Kardashian & Shoe Dazzle have you covered for under $40

Who can say no to $40 shoes that look like they cost hundreds? Not Me!!!

Sam Edelman & Ann Taylor Loft

Collaborations

Sam Edelman and Ann Taylor Loft

 

I love how even Loft is getting in on the designer capsule collections…but this one is an online-only collection. Sam Edelman’s shoes sell at high-end department stores and prices range from under $100 to a few hundred depending on the style. Loft and Sam’s designs will sell between $100 for gemstone sandals and $160 for espadrille heels with various classic styles in-between. These shoes are very cute and I really love the hemp-wrapped heels of the espadrille heels but the collaboration doesn’t seem to be a “low-cost” collection.

CLICK HERE: Tacoma Snakeskin Print Peeptoe, Sam Edelman for Loft $150

CLICK HERE: Betty Ballet Flats, Sam Edelman for Loft $110

CLICK HERE: Mabel Espadrille Peeptoes, Sam Edelman for Loft $140

Do these capsule collection shoes have your attention?

K Cups… Dunkin Donuts vs. Starbucks

In My Opinion….

  Starbucks vs. Dunkin Donuts KCups

 

I really love coffee… a huge cup in the morning and an afternoon jolt to keep me going thru my long work days. I have owned a Keurig Coffee machine for years now but when I saw Dunkin Donuts KCups and Starbucks KCups available , well let’s just say I was one happy girl!

On weekends I love a good cup of hot coffee but for some reason I like iced coffee during the week…. Keeps my taste buds happy I guess.

I tried the Dunkin Donuts French Vanilla KCup and it had a pleasant mild vanilla flavor…thankfully not a fake vanilla taste some KCup brands offer. I must admit the flavor is not bold though.

I tried the Starbucks medium house blend KCup … Wow …that coffee for a medium blend is great…bold and certainly tastes like I drove in the drive-thru for a $3 cup-a-joe.

I really must admit if I had to pick only one box to buy it would be Starbucks. Dunkin’s flavor was good but the Starbucks KCup tastes just like what you get at their coffee shop.

Also a great side note….. The Starbucks blend is strong enough to cut thru ice and not get watered-down when you brew your own iced coffee…

Drink up…at home for much less than the coffee shop…but just as good!!!!

Inspirations of Style : Color Block

Inspirations of Style

 Color Block

The newest trend for this spring is color blocking with bold color combinations such as red & hot pink or yellow & bright green. While this new fashion statement may be too bold for some or not appropriate for a conservative workplace, adding color-block accessories is a great alternative. Color blocking can be casual or elegant which is usually determined by the color scheme and styles.

Weekend entire is a great place to introduce a key piece or two using the bold color combinations of pink, orange and blue thru an accessory like shoes, bags, or jewelry.

CLICK HERE:  3-pack Color Block Necklaces, Marni for H&M $49.95

CLICK HERE: ZAHARA BIB NECKLACE, Stella & Dot $248

CLICK HERE: Colorblocked Tote, Forever 21 $19.80

 CLICK HERE: Silvana 2Bag Colorblock Tote, Fendi $2130

Another great way to stretch your money and versatility of your wardrobe is to color block different articles of clothing like a fuchsia skinny jeans with an orange blouse tucked in and nude wedges. You might not need to buy anything at all …just search the back of your closet!

 

If you want wearable work pieces I would stick to muted color blocking on a great tote or tailored dress keeping the rest as simple as possible.

CLICK HERE: DKNY Colorblock Sheath Dress, $345

CLICK HERE: The Color-Blocked Charmeuse Dress, Old Navy $32.94 

If you want a great color block article to keep in your closet for seasons to come stick to a great heel that you can wear to work or to dinner …my favorite is the Vince Camuto two-toned open-toe heels…. That color combination is classic!

CLICK HERE:  Vince Camuto Bello Grey Mint Combo , $129

CLICK HERE: Linya2 by Boutique, Piperlime $140

CLICK HERE:  Darcy by Loeffler Randall, Piperlime $395

I really love to hit affordable stores for fun accessories and great staple items that I can wear to work & on the weekend. New York & Company has some great pink & red color block options at affordable prices. Their simple and structures cuts really make this trend fun but not loud and these style inspirations show how to use accessories to compliment your outfit & add to the color block movement.

CLICK HERE: Tulip-Sleeve Top & Pink Pencil Skirt , New York & Company each $34.95

CLICK HERE:   Solid V-Neck Cardigan & The 7th Avenue Sateen Slim Crop & Patent Leather Skinny Belt, New York & Co.

Another great option that combines two fashion statements of the season: Yellow & Color Block… keeping the yellow toned down with white & black is the perfect way to add one bold color into this fashion trend & still look effortlessly chic!

CLICK HERE: Solid Charmeuse Keyhole Neck Blouse & Black & White Ponte Colorblock Skirt, New York & Co.

There are so many ways to color block you can’t go wrong! Have fun!!
