Style Icon

Michelle Obama

Our First Lady Mrs. Michelle Obama is certainly a walking fashion statement at every occasion.

From the campaign trail to White House state dinners, Michelle O appeals to every woman in this nation. J. Crew cardigans paired with designer labels attracts the attention of fashion critics and inspires us all.

She made little known designers, Jason Wu and Isabel Toledo, household names after President Obama’s inauguration in 2009. Both designers now have affordable lines with famous stores, Target & Payless Shoes.

And of course she selected the always fashionable & truly classic American designer Michael Kors to dress her for her official picture.

Mrs. O gives us all some inspiration!

 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.

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!

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!

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!

Reversible Tights… GENIUS!

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

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!

Twenty Dollar Trendy Feb 2012

TWENTY DOLLAR TRENDY

FEBRUARY 2012

 

I have been looking lately for a structured bag in a neutral tone that looks polished enough for life in the corporate world but still says I have style, love my designers and own the latest trend.  But I love my bags like I love my shoes which means I have too many to wear and it makes justifing $1,000 on one purse hard at times.  I love how Payless Shoes features some great designer collections like Lela Rose & the fierce Christian Siriano. His clothes are amazing and his ever changing collection at Payless keeps me coming back for more! This crossbody bag in Navy/Tan is a STEAL at just under $20 so when the fashion changes or I beat this bag up & it is on to the next at least I know I looked good while it lasted for just Twenty-Dollar Trendy!

 I love my IPhone 4S! I’ve had an IPhone since the original & I could never switch to any other phone. The IPhones are big & boring looking even though their technology is amazing! I love the beautiful Sworavski crystal encrusted IPhone covers that cost $300 each but I’m too rough and know I’ll damage that in a matter of weeks! Now there is a cheap solution to that boring case problem!  For well under $20 you can get a blinged out IPhone case from Charolette Russe in clear & pink crystals with a big heart!!!

   I <3 this 

 I love a good statement necklace but I do have my classic Tiffany necklace that tends to be a staple item worn on an almost daily basis which is why I hate to spend too much on costume jewlery. I also noticed gold-tone all over the Fall 2012 Fashion Week runway so thought a great way to add in this bold trend & still stand out was on a great neckalce! For under $20 you too can get this fashion statement and update your wardrobe!
