Inspirations of Style: Peplum

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 !

Must Buy: Envelope Clutch

Must Buy Item

Aldo Envelope Clutch

 

As Spring is just around the corner and your formal party invites begin to arrive in the mail I suggest you do yourself a favor and buy the Beige Envelope Clutch by Aldo for $40. This clutch is a transitional piece from day to night events as well as a basic neutral color to really coordinate with multiple colors and patterns. Also I really love how the envelope style clutch can actually fit more than your lipgloss and ID. The gold-tone detail really gives it some edge! Bust out your bridesmaid dress or floral printed summer BBQ dress and some flip flops and you are ready to party!

You know you love this purse!

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!

 CLICK HERE: Orange Paisley dress, H&M $19.95

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!!

CLICK HERE: Aqua Blue Crystal Button Studs, Bloomingdales $20

 

Ready… Set… Shop!

Couture to Copy: LK Bennett Sledge Shoe

 Couture to Copy

 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!

Inspirations of Style : Stocking Obsession

 Inspirations of Style: 

Stocking Obsessions

While we only have a few months left of the winter chill I thought I would showcase a few of my favorite stocking patterns that are now so fashionable. I find wearing patterned stocking with sweater dresses and boots to be the easiest combo without looking like you worked for hours on an outfit. Although the animal print tight is very hip I can see this trend a little harder to get away with at the office, or at least maybe my office, but it’s a great change-up to your weekend sweater dress and flats outfits! I know you might be thinking flats & footed stocking? Really? But my co-worker was wearing simple black tights, a dark sweater dress and gray flats… it really worked! In a way it is a different take on the color block craze that is very in-style for Spring/Summer 2012. Kick your style up a notch and wear your sexy stilettos with a crazy patterned stocking and party dress…. Don’t tell me you won’t go by unnoticed.

 CLICK HERE: Leopard Print Sheer Tights, ASOS $17.91

I personally love the open weave look…imagine dark brown open weave tights, knee high brown leather boots by Lucky Brand and a gorgeous amethyst purple sweater dress. Throw a belt onto that outfit and be ready for your 9AM meeting at work, shopping on the weekends of dinner at a chic Asian Fusion restaurant in the city with friends. I’ll Cheers to that!

CLICK HERE:    Traditional Open Weave Tights, Payless $7.99

Another way to wear the tights-craze, thanks to Princess Kate, is to wear a simple silhouette with stocking & stilettos! You can look very polished & posh by wearing nude sheers or opaque black stocking and classic closed toe heels.

Sometimes the best way to add a pattern to your tights to look edgy but still feminine is to do a bold lace pattern or a simple polka-dot.  Black, gray and nude have all been done…why not try a bold burgundy or refreshing navy? Just make sure you wear complementary colors and stick to solids or refined patterns …you’re stockings are making the statement …and so will you!

CLICK HERE: Floral Lace Tights, Forever 21 $10.80 

CLICK HERE:  Jukebox Tights in the Pony, $34.99 

I will let you in on a great secret… Spanx now makes various patterned tights so you stay skinny & seemless while still stylish…. An investment in 1 or 2 of these pairs can keep you going…without those rolls!

 

CLICK HERE: Patterned Tight-End Tights® Argyle Diamond, Spanx $28.00

CLICK HERE: ASSETS® Reversible Shaping Solid Tights, Spanx $18.00 

 

Reversible Tights… GENIUS!

I couldn’t leave this one out…. Maternity Shareware Tights!

 CLICK HERE: ASSETS® Marvelous Mama Opaque Stripe, Spanx $20

There are so many patterned tights, from polka dots & lace to fishnets & solids sold at almost every store that it will satisfy everyone’s taste. If you are like me and are afraid you’ll put a run in those pantyhose then I suggest 2 things:

  • get your patterned stockings at a low price from stores like Forever 21 & Payless
  •  carry clear nailpolish to prevent any runs from tearing any further!

 

Happy Stocking Shopping!

Marni for H&M

Collaborations:

Marni for H&M

March 8, 2012 Marni for H&M will be in stores with pieces from $20 to $130…most in the high double digits though. Bold prints & statement necklaces don’t look like they came off the rack from a mass retailer like H&M. Their heels are brave but their sandals are very wearable and there is even a swimsuit for $40 in the collection! I wouldn’t buy an entire outfit the way their stylists pieced them together but the individual pieces could work well in any closet! I actually am looking forward to buying a few pieces from this collection, assuming I can get my hands on it before it sells like hotcakes!

Ten bucks for a very chic belt you can’t even find at Target half the time and the  ¾ sleeve coat isn’t overpriced at $129. I may not wear a polka dot suit but the skirt is on my must have list. I love the orange bag, it’s bold but totally wearable on both the weekends & to the office! I love their chancy bracelet cuffs but they do have a funky straw hat I’m not sure anyone can really pull off. Marni even did a line for men so you might want to think about your significant other while shopping for yourself & spruce up his wardrobe for spring a little too! These fashions below are my favorites from Marni for H&M … enjoy!

I’ll see you in line at H&M early on March 8!
