Inspiration of Style:

Peplum

 

 I am totally into peplum right now! Its all over the pages of magazines and in dozens of stores. Peplum is a ruffle attached to the waistline of a skirt, dress, or even a jacket.  This style is so feminine but also bold. 

When I think peplum the first name that comes to mind is Victoria Beckham. She embodies ladylikeness yet she has such a bold fashion sense.

This is how you wear peplum and my favorite picks of this fashion-do !

This poolside inspired collection is just in time for summer and your beach vacation!

I have featured designs by Trina Turk before on GossipandGlam.com (here) so I am certainly excited to see more of this anticipated collection. This collection has a 60′s hint with a little sophisticated society twist and based on the photos below of this collection .. I already see my name written on that credit card receipt!!

Trina’s bold prints & colors are fun yet still timeless and I really can see myself wearing so many of these outfits to work this summer. I think this collection has enough pieces to really round out your wardrobe!

Twenty Dollar Trendy March 2012

I love when Spring it just around the corner and color comes back into the mall and on us again! I know every girl can’t get enough of black, white & gray but after a dreary winter we need to cheer up & spruce up our wardrobe! I am loving the bold colors for this spring & summer but sometimes it is just too harsh without a pattern. This H&M dress for under $20 bucks is a great find & can easily transition you in style thru the spring and early summer with the 3/4 sleeves. Orange can be a hard color for many to wear, especially work appropriate without looking like Halloween…. this paisley pattern is the perfect way to bring you into spring!

Maybe you are looking for a cute shoe to lighten up your outfit …. for less than twenty dollars you can have comfy cute pastel coral flats with the very fashionable ankle strap perfect for the office or weekend from Forever 21.

CLICK HERE: Linen Ankle Strap Flats, Forever 21 $19.80

 

Sometimes you just need a new clutch …wallet by day & purse by night. I love this orange croco pattern from Target.

CLICK HERE: Merona Orange Croco Clutch, Target $14.99

I know a great piece of jewelry can complete an outfit but spending too much on costume jewels doesn’t seem to always be the best way to stretch your dollar … I found a great pair of earrings from Bloomingdales for $20 … I love these so much I don’t know which color is better!?! Coral or Blue!!!! For $20 buy them both!!

Ready… Set… Shop!

Couture to Copy: LK Bennett Sledge Shoe

 L.K. Bennett Sledge Shoe

It seems as though this weeks posts are dedicated to the one & only Duchess of Cambridge… I guess I like her style.

Kate is famous for wearing, among other royals, LK Bennett’s Sledge Shoe in light taupe which runs you about $300

CLICK HERE: LK Bennett Sledge Shoe, $289

Now I believe every girl should have a nude patent pump in this closet … it is classic and chic, but $300 is not in every fashionista’s budget. I found a great look a like for under $100.

CLICK HERE: Zella Pump, Vince Camuto, $98

This shoe is a classic style…. you will have it forever, will always be in style, works for day & night… you can’t go wrong!

Watches

I must admit I own a bunch of watches but rarely does one ever make it onto my wrist. These days when most people need to check the time they tend to look at their cell phone & I follow that trend. This year I am going to make it my goal to wear all my watches, maybe not everyday but more often for sure – it’s a pain to remove it before yoga & remember to put it back on before running back to work!

My most unique watch is my white fur with pave diamonds I found at Bloomingdales SOHO. It’s by Splash and while I have worn it to a few Christmas parties I am terrified to dirty that snow white color fur!

My husband loves his watches and he too has a “Wish List” which consists of various very expensive and more moderately priced pieces, aka I refer back to this list when birthdays, anniversaries & Christmas rolls around! I am going to take my cue from him and find some beautiful women’s watches that will work with everyone’s wardrobe & wallet!

I know gold-tone is in & I really do love the Michael Kors Mid-size Bradshaw Chronograph Watch at $250. If you go gold, in my opinion you should go classic, otherwise it just looks tacky & fake.

CLICK HERE:  Michael Kors Mid-Size Bradshaw Chronograph Watch, $250

If you are anything like me then you love everything & anything from the ultimate classic jewelry store Tiffany & Co. and can appreciate this amazing 18K white gold, mother of pearl & diamond Atlas cocktail watch, but the price tag of $25,400 is not & will most likely not be in my future budget so if you can afford this glamour watch, I’m jealous of you!

CLICK HERE: Tiffany & Co. Atlas® Cocktail Watch, $25,400

Maybe you like your accessories to be playful with a colorful watch by New York & Company at under $20 bucks it comes in 5 colors!

CLICK HERE: Metal Expansion Watch by New York & Company, $19.95

If you love the look of a traditional and timeless piece then you can never go wrong with a Fossil watch for just around $100. I really like this leather strap watch in a neutral, how can you go wrong?

CLICK HERE: Flight Mini Leather Watch by Fossil, $75

Since I don’t wear a watch daily I prefer the slimmer faced & not so bulky watches but some outfits can really handle a big & bold watch! Its all about having fun with your accessories & a watch can really finish your outfit so start experimenting & have fun!

Oh Look at the Time! Until next time….

Couture to Copy : Pearl Platform Pumps

COUTURE TO COPY:

Pearl Platform Pumps

 While recently browsing the Neiman Marcus website in search of new shoes to lust after I came across the “Pearl-Platform Satin Pump” by Nicholas Kirkwood with a 5″ covered heel . These heels are gorgeous & would add a touch of “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” glamour to any outfit!  Can’t you just imagine her in that famous little black dress, sparkly tiara, endless pearl necklaces and these shoes?!?!

 

CLICK HERE: Nicholas Kirkwood Pearl Platform Pumps, Neiman Marcus $995

 

If you can’t part with a grand this month to splurge on these fabulous stilettos here is a great alternative at a substantially lower price-point!

 “Pearla0” by Red Kiss is selling on E-Bay & various online retailers like Shiekh Shoes for about $30 to $60. The red and nude look very close to the Kirkwood heels while the black has silver-toned pearl detail.

 

CLICK HERE: Pearla0 by Red Kiss, Nude $29.99

CLICK HERE: Pearla0 by Red Kiss, Red $29.99

 CLICK HERE: Pearla0 by Red Kiss, Black $29.99

 

I believe every girl can wear any shoe, and how can a pair of pearl platform pumps not be part of your shoe collection? Sure I want to have the original pair of pumps for $1,000 but for under $100 I can have a pair in all 3 colors…. I’ll be expecting a very large box in the mail very soon & my collection will be one step closer to closet-heaven!

COUTURE TO COPY

We all know the greatest fashion houses create some of the best shoe designs but those designer duds can cost a pretty penny. While I sometimes splurge on the real thing, my budget cannot cover my shoe fetish at a thousand dollars a pop.  I love walking through Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus just as much as I love to browse through the racks at Target and Ann Taylor. I believe a girl should always invest in good staple items such as the sexy black stiletto, a polished nude wedge, the perfect ballet flat, a basic black pump, a chic pair of boots and glamorous summer sandals…. but let’s be honest, I love shoes too much to only own a few pairs in the closet, even if they are all high-end designers. This brings me to the “Couture to Copy” section of my blog where I will show you a fabulous designer shoe & if it isn’t in your budget but a must-have of the season where you can find it for less but still just as stunning.
