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!

bebe’s Bridal Collection

In My Opinion….

bebe’s Bridal Collection

 

Well it looks like we have another bridal salon to check out for reasonably-priced wedding gowns with bebe’s new bridal collection created by designer Rami Kashou of Project Runway and Project Runway: All Stars. You can pre-order dresses currently and either buy online or at 4 locations : Oak Street in Chicago, Soho in New York, Rodeo Drive and Aventura in L.A..

This dress is cute from the front & would be perfect for the rehearsal dinner but the back makes your tush look HUGE.

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

Do these capsule collection shoes have your attention?

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!

Must Buy Item : Zara “Lace Tulip Dress”

Shopping List- Must Buy

Zara “Lace Tulip Dress”

It looks like Zara still has the beautiful Lace Tulip Dress our favorite Duchess wore in December to the Gary Barlow Charity Concert with Prince William and her in-laws the Prince of Wales & the Duchess of Cornwall.

I do love the way Kate accesorized this dress with a black shoes,tights & jacket. I think it makes the lace design stand out & the belt is a great way to show off her tiny waist we all envy. While we all may not have charity events to go to on a weekly basis , this dress with the right accessories can work well in your hum-drum life too!

CLICK HERE: Lace Tulip Dress, ZARA $99.90 

 

This dress is a classic piece for under $100 …. you MUST buy this !

Inspirations of Style: Watches

Inspirations of Style

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….
