Style Trend: Bold Prints and Bright Colors

I can’t seem to keep my eyes off all of the bold prints and bright colors I’m seeing everywhere. It all started with this chic red, black, and white Anne Klein dress (below). There’s just something about it. I want it so bad! Surprise Surprise…I think I have a serious “want” problem. Aye…anywhoo take a look below and let me know which looks have caught your eye.

Peek inside the IGIGI Spring/Summer Lookbook

Take a peek inside the colorful and stunning IGIGI by Yuliya Raquel spring/summer lookbook! The beautiful Kailee O’Sullivan models the latest collection, appropriately named A Breath of Fresh Air. This vintage-inspired designs “celebrates the rejuvenation of femininity, vibrancy, and liveliness the spell of Spring unveils in all women.” It has a very Mad Men-esque vibe, doesn’t it? I’m in awe of the colors and soft sillhouettes. “My design sensibility has always had a vintage vibe to it, so this season I decided to go all the way and just have a blast with stylistics. I took the old covers of…

My Spring Checklist

Today is the first day of spring! Woohoo! OK, my loves, I don’t know what the weather is like in your neck of the woods, but it’s beautiful here in Los Angeles.

Hippie Chick / Anna Scholz Black Label for SS 2012

Anna Scholz…what are you doing to me? You’re so fabulous and these latest images from her Hippie Chick collection from Anna Scholz Black Label Spring/Summer 2012 only prove it. I’m dying over here! I’ve always loved her use of prints with a feminine touch. And this collection is a perfect example of that. Hippie Chick is “down-to-earth girliness with a sophisticated twist.” I agree. You will find maxi dresses and tunics in colors and prints for almost everyone. I will admit I’ve only owned one of her maxi dresses, but it’s so amazingly…amazing…that I just might have to splurge and…

Mad for Metallics

Look mom! I like something besides sequins! Yes, my loves, I’m venturing into metallics. Whether it’s a top, jacket, shoe, or even a handbag-getting in on the shine will make you stand out. And if you don’t want to go all out, then why not add something with a touch of metallic. It’s a great way to break up an all-black outfit. I put together a few collages below. The first three are outfits with a few touches of metallic. Each one has it’s twist. Then you have a selection of a few bags and clutches I wouldn’t mind getting my hands…

Lounging into Spring with Linen

We are officially one week into the spring season. Even though it doesn’t seem like it in some parts of the country. The weather has been crazy! It’s supposed to be in the 70’s this week here in L.A.One of my favorite things about spring is being able to layer. Because the weather is still mild and with today’s unpredictable weather, you have to be ready. It’s always changing.That’s why during this time of the year, you start seeing a lot of linen peices. A linen blazer is great to use over a tank top or a spring dress, because…

Wishful ‘Spring Outfit’ Thinking

I really wish it wasn’t raining today. Yes, I said it. I know I said I love the rain in the past, but after a leak in the roof caused damage to my closet (the consequence of living on the top floor), I am reconsidering the love. Thank goodness nothing was damaged. My clothes, shoes, and handbags are safe and sound. We caught the leak just in time. So, now I sit here wishing I could wear an outfit like the one below. Instead, I think I’m pulling out my Uggs. Sandals at DSWClutches by Lauren Ralph Lauren
