Leather and Ladylike

23 April 2014

I've been kind of playing around with more ladylike pairings, most recently layering delicate blouses. One of my favorite has to be with this bouclĂ© jacket and these leather(ette) pants with just an extra pop of color.

Clothes for A Cause: Zamrie

22 April 2014

This month I've teamed up with designer Zamrie to style up one of their fabulous blouses in support of Autism Awareness month. Zamrie known for her feminine silhouettes brought this colorful, with a touch of edge top to life just in time for warmer weather. Adding just enough pop of spring the top paired flawlessly with my bright bag and striped skirt. 

Grab one and 100% of the proceeds of the blouse will go to Giant Steps, a Chicago-based organization that provides individuals with autism spectrum disorders and their families. Win and Win.

Spring 2014 Trend Spotting + Caress® Emerald Rush™

You may not know this but floral scents are kind of a weakness of mine, dating all the way back to my pre-teens.  So when Caress® introduced their new Fresh Collection I couldn't resist jumping on the band wagon, especially since the Caress® Emerald Rush™ Fresh Collection Body Wash has notes of Gardenia, my personal favorite. I was pleasantly surprised when the fragrance lingered on long past my shower, in which I skipped the perfume and embraced the Spring-like scent.  

So with Springtime and emerald in mind I put together some of my (green inspired) looks spotted on the Spring 2014 runways, last September. From Richard Chai to Mara Hoffman, emerald made tiny impressions adding pop to classic all white ensembles and rich printed maxi dresses. My personal favorite embraced the cropped and high waisted trend, giving just the right color paired with the crisp white trousers and top. I don't know about you but I'm starting to think I need to bring just a touch more green into my life and wardrobe, even if it is in moderation.

Who else is loving Emerald this season?

Scuba Florals

For me nothing brightens up a dreary day or week quite like a floral. Spring or Fall. So last week when I was pouting over the cold snap we were experiencing (snow was involved guys) I reached for this eye catching neoprene skirt and I knew it would snap me out of my polar vortex funk. It did, and it went perfectly with my mini quilted crossbody.

Silver-Screen Style: The Other Woman

18 April 2014

If you follow me on any of my social networks you might remember me blowing up your feed Wednesday while having a girls night with Popsugar, equipped with a screening of The Other Woman, goodies and most importantly, Patricia Field, who did the wardrobe for the film. It was kind of amazing. 
As for the movie, it's hard for me to decide what I loved more, the girl's on screen chemistry (real talk: the movie was hilarious) or the clothes. Honestly it's both, and I think that's what makes it work so well. Sure, "clothes are pretty but you have to laugh" Pat said after the screening and I couldn't agree more.  And being that I spent a good portion of the movie laughing, I'd say mission accomplished.
Now, let's talk onscreen style.

Patricia made each character's personality speak volumes through their wardrobe, which I wouldn't expect anything less, we are talking about the woman who made SATC what it is.. 

Kate (Leslie Mann) was an updated Charlotte York donning cheery, colorful hues and prints matching her Connecticut housewife & playful spirit to the t. While Carly (Cameron Diaz), a high powered lawyer, added a touch of edge to her sophisticated ensembles. Leather pencil skirts and Jimmy Choos, yes please. Amber (Kate Upton) was definitely more laid back when it came to her style, and was often in playful sundresses, tees and shorts. Though her in a white bikini is all va-va voom. As for the final style star Lydia (Nicki Minaj), she stole the room every time she walked in with her boldly printed curve hugging ensembles paired effortless with her witty remarks. I'm not going to lie, I kind of love her more now than ever before. 

So if you're looking for the perfect girls night out flick with a little style and lot of laughter, head to the theaters April 25th and catch the three gals and their outrageous shenanigans. Xo.

Little White Dress

17 April 2014

When Spring hits there's a whole list of essentials to have in your closet, most importantly, the little white dress. It can be paired with sneaks, heels, sandals and layered with just about everything. It's one of the easiest must haves on the list, plus it's more cheery than it's black counterpart. This Lulu's dress is the perfect dress for the job, it's playful and has a little smidge of frill for those days of wearing it sans layers.
