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!

Inspirations of Style : Color Block

Inspirations of Style

 Color Block

The newest trend for this spring is color blocking with bold color combinations such as red & hot pink or yellow & bright green. While this new fashion statement may be too bold for some or not appropriate for a conservative workplace, adding color-block accessories is a great alternative. Color blocking can be casual or elegant which is usually determined by the color scheme and styles.

Weekend entire is a great place to introduce a key piece or two using the bold color combinations of pink, orange and blue thru an accessory like shoes, bags, or jewelry.

CLICK HERE: Colorblocked Tote, Forever 21 $19.80

 CLICK HERE: Silvana 2Bag Colorblock Tote, Fendi $2130

Another great way to stretch your money and versatility of your wardrobe is to color block different articles of clothing like a fuchsia skinny jeans with an orange blouse tucked in and nude wedges. You might not need to buy anything at all …just search the back of your closet!

 

If you want wearable work pieces I would stick to muted color blocking on a great tote or tailored dress keeping the rest as simple as possible.

CLICK HERE: DKNY Colorblock Sheath Dress, $345

CLICK HERE: The Color-Blocked Charmeuse Dress, Old Navy $32.94 

If you want a great color block article to keep in your closet for seasons to come stick to a great heel that you can wear to work or to dinner …my favorite is the Vince Camuto two-toned open-toe heels…. That color combination is classic!

I really love to hit affordable stores for fun accessories and great staple items that I can wear to work & on the weekend. New York & Company has some great pink & red color block options at affordable prices. Their simple and structures cuts really make this trend fun but not loud and these style inspirations show how to use accessories to compliment your outfit & add to the color block movement.

CLICK HERE: Tulip-Sleeve Top & Pink Pencil Skirt , New York & Company each $34.95

CLICK HERE:   Solid V-Neck Cardigan & The 7th Avenue Sateen Slim Crop & Patent Leather Skinny Belt, New York & Co.

Another great option that combines two fashion statements of the season: Yellow & Color Block… keeping the yellow toned down with white & black is the perfect way to add one bold color into this fashion trend & still look effortlessly chic!

There are so many ways to color block you can’t go wrong! Have fun!!

Lace

I really seem to love lace these days .. so feminine, soft and refined you really can’t go wrong. Lace is no longer just for brides and white is not the only color that is popular. A full lace dress or just one lace piece will keep you in style this spring. Lace up this spring!

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!

Inspirations of Style: Watches

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….
