Take a deep breath…New York Fashion Week is finally over. I didn’t have the time, money, or energy to make it out there. But, I did keep up via one of my fave fashion sites Style.com. And although plus sizes were not represented on the runway, that doesn’t mean we can’t take inspiration from them…right? Read more
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. Read more
UK retailer Evans wants me to be broke. I think they really do. Just look at their Spring/Summer 2012 Lookbook!! It’s not like you haven’t heard this before, but I want it all! They’re very feminine and yet some of the designs are bold. I’m drooling over the Cobalt Maxi Skirt! I can already imagine the possibilities! All these pieces and more, will be available on their US web site starting tomorrow (Saturday 5/26/12) on http://www.evansusa.com.
Which piece is your favorite?

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 Vogue magazines from early 20’s all the way trough 50’s and created homage to the history of style.” Said Yuliya Raquel, Founder, Creative Director and Lead Designer.
I’m officially in love with the last wedding dress! Which design is your favorite?
The collection is available now on www.Igigi.com.
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. I hope it’s like that wherever you are. Fingers crossed.
I wanted to come in and give you my two cents on a few things we should have to be ready for these beautiful spring days. It’s by no means mandatory, LOL! You probably already have most of these pieces anyways. Are you ready? Let’s get started…from the tips of your fingers to the bottom of your feet.
I need a wide range of fun and colorful nail polishes. Just like all of these Essie colors below.
Really, anything pretty much goes. But, I’d love to stick to pieces like these below. Bright colors and jewelry with floral touches.
It’s dress time…yay! From the long to the short, all styles welcome! I can’t wait to wear maxi dresses.
Sunglasses? Check. Belt? Check. Light airy scarf? Check. Sun hat? Check.
Shoes…wedges, sandals, colorful flats and pumps. Need I say more?
Loving prints and bold and neutral colors. Don’t forget a fun clutch.
I’m a big fan of denim. I love pretty much all cuts and washes. I’m actually eyeing a pair of white jeans.
What’s on your spring checklist?
Hey my loves…not sure if you’ve seen this yet, but here’s JIBRI’s Spring 2012 Collection. I will admit, I don’t own any of Jasmine’s designs, but my friend Ivory does and she LOVES the line. I’m actually eyeing that first skirt! So gorgeous! Her pieces don’t usually last very long, so if you see something you like…get on it! Check out the line here.
Update: I am now the proud owner of this skirt (below) LOL!
You all know about my love for Dolce Vita. In fact…I love them ever more, because I won a free pair from them on their Facebook page! I don’t know what pair I’m getting, but hey it’s free. If you haven’t entered, why not? If I can win, maybe you will too! But hurry, because it’s only until the end of February. Read more
The Queen Grace Signature Spring Collection is now available online! Loving the clean and classic cuts and designs. Big fan! They are available in different prints and vibrant colors. They’ve even extended their sizes up to a 26. And they are offering a 25% discount code QUEENIE25 for all shoppers and FREE SHIPPING on all orders over $100! My favorite, the Grace dress is included as well!
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 grab something from this latest collection. Take a look for yourselves…what do you think? I can’t decide which one I want…
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 on, especially this one from ASOS (right). Then I venture into shoes…of course. Ughhhh dying over these shoes. Are you drooling yet?
