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: Bangles and Stackable Bracelets

Bangles & Stackable Bracelets

 

Stackable bracelets and bangles are very trendy right now and come in various textures, gems and colors that are usually the perfect finishing touches to any outfit. I love color and am never afraid to wear it but sometimes its more fun when your accessories pop and become the eye-catching item of your outfit. Every store, from the cheap & trendy to the expensive & luxurious, carries beautiful arm candy to fit your personality.  If you wear the right outfit, these trendy jewelry options below will look ten times more expensive than what you paid!

CLICK HERE: Etched Rhinestone Bangles, Forever 21 $7.80 

CLICK HERE: Enameled ram bangle, J.Crew $98

CLICK HERE: Vintage Crystal Bangle Bracelets, Target $19.99 each

CLICK HERE: KATE SPADE NEW YORK PUTTING ON THE RITZ HINGED BANGLE BRACELET, $99.19

There are excellent pricey options that will give that same fashionable look but will become collector items in your jewelry box and will one day be passed to your daughter like Chanel’s 2012 set of 4 glass stone cabochon bracelets that just might be worth that “mortgage payment” price tag.

CLICK HERE: Set of 4 Glass Stone Cabochon Bracelets, CHANEL 2012

Maybe your jewelry box already has some bracelets you can work with & you don’t even have to spend a dollar!!  Fashion is about using your imagination & digging thru your closet…not always your wallet!

 

Happy Jewelry-Box Hunting!!

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!

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!

Couture to Copy

COUTURE TO COPY

We all know the greatest fashion houses create some of the best shoe designs but those designer duds can cost a pretty penny. While I sometimes splurge on the real thing, my budget cannot cover my shoe fetish at a thousand dollars a pop.  I love walking through Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus just as much as I love to browse through the racks at Target and Ann Taylor. I believe a girl should always invest in good staple items such as the sexy black stiletto, a polished nude wedge, the perfect ballet flat, a basic black pump, a chic pair of boots and glamorous summer sandals…. but let’s be honest, I love shoes too much to only own a few pairs in the closet, even if they are all high-end designers. This brings me to the “Couture to Copy” section of my blog where I will show you a fabulous designer shoe & if it isn’t in your budget but a must-have of the season where you can find it for less but still just as stunning.
