Alexander McQueen Navy Sailor Skirt

 

I must admit I adore Kate Middleton/Windsor AKA The Duchess of Cambridge and when I walk into my closet I like to know I have some inspirational pieces just like Kate! But Glam Girl has a mortgage and a shopping obession therefore I just can’t throw hundreds and/or thousands of dollars on just one skirt.

Being an American girl I really love the nautical look , in fact I’m wearing a red/white&blue stripped Lands End dress as I type :)  

Kate wore an Alexander McQueen salior inspired navy pencil skirt on August 19, 2011 and it is so cute but I found one for less, even though it took me almost a year to find a great copy!

Collaborations:

Kohl’s and Narciso Rodriguez

Well Kohl’s is adding a new designer to their collaboration list, Narciso Rodriguez, who dresses the likes of our First Lady & actress Claire Danes. This fall the duo will turn out a new collection. I CANNOT wait to see what this collection has to offer and I hope the prices are reasonable enough for me to buy multiple pieces! I’m sure our style icon Mrs Obama will be sporting some pieces too.

Fourth of July Drinks

I love the Fourth of July… BBQs, fireworks, a day off from work, and FREEDOM!

While I really do love those Brits, I’m 100% proud to be an American and GossipandGlam.com wants thank those service men & women, current & past for giving and keeping our freedom!

Here are 2 drinks to cheers our soilders with!

As I watch my favorite morning TV shows they gave me a GREAT idea for the non-alcoholic cocktail:

The Red, White & Blue Drink:

1. Fill a clear tall glass with ice

2.Pour in cranberry juice 1/3 of the way up the glass

3.Pour in a dark blue sports drink another 1/3 of the way up the glass

4.Pour in Sprite the last 1/3 of the glass

5. DO NOT MIX!

6. Garnish with a star cut-out made from a watermelon slice!

7. Toss in a straw and ENJOY!

 

 Fresh Watermelon & Mint Cocktail:

I begin my cocktail by following Food Network’s Bobby Flay’s Watermelon Martini recipe found here, then I add a bunch of fresh mint muddled into the glass and also garnish with a few mint leaves. The fresh mint & watermelon combo is fabulous, refreshing and the perfect cocktail to toast America.

Collaborations: H&M and Maison Martin Margiela

Collaborations:

H&M and Maison Martin Margiela

  

Now this Glam Girl loves fashion but even I’m still learning more about European designers that aren’t well known in the US. H&M has teamed up with Maison Martin Margiela, a Belgian-born contemporary designer who previously worked with Jean Paul Gaultier before starting his own label.  His style is on the edgier side and it has been stated that this is the avant garde partnership yet.  I’m always interested to see the collection & figure out how to incorporate some more eccentric pieces into my wardrobe! Look out for this collaboration collection in Fall 2012.

XOXO- Glam Girl

Every GossipandGlam.com reader by now must know this Glam Girl LOVES shoes!!  It is half an illness at this point hehehe but you know what I don’t care and I hope to have a daughter one day to pass down all my goodies!!

I love Diane von Fursteinberg and her Zai Suede Criss-Cross Slingback Platform Sandals are AMAZING but for $280 at Saks I have to really think ….how many times will I bust out these blue heels? Maybe to a wedding or two and maybe a brial & baby shower but for less than $80 these ZARA Crossover Heels $79.90 featured on GossipandGlam.com “My Favorite Shoes: ZARA” on May 8,2012 .

My wedding shoes were cobalt blue open-toe heels with a ruffle detail … I loved those & you bet I would have worn these fun heels too!
