Mad for Plaid

Mad for Plaid

Plaid and fall go hand in hand. Unlike the frumpy flannels of the nineties, the plaid we're seeing this season is totally refined.  Timeless tartans are featured in silk chiffon and sophisticated silhouettes with an edge. 

From L to R: Loren Stewart necklace, Rene Escobar 18k gold and diamond bracelet, Annabel Ingall "Isabella" tote, L'Agence "Kendall" dress, Vince shearling trimmed jacket, Shay 18k gold and diamond choker, Vince cross-body, McQ plaid blouse, Joseph suede leggings & RtA "Rene" jacket. 

Pair your plaid with leather and denim and edgy accessories for a downtown vibe.  This look is anything but outdoorsy.

Easy for Easter

Easy for Easter

Similar to wedding season, Easter is a great excuse to buy a new dress (or separates),  especially if you can find a piece or two that will take you through summer and all the events that come with it.

We like to keep our Easter outfits light, bright and floral, with a little lace thrown in - which keeps things festive and fun - and of course, on trend for the season. 

Graphic prints, floral or otherwise, are all over dresses right now, making it easy to find an Easter appropriate outfit.  It also wouldn't be a spring 2016 dress if there wasn't a white option, be it crochet, eyelet or linen, you'll find the perfect white dress for you.

From L to R: Red Valentino cotton eyelet lace dress, Paul Smith cotton dress, Derek Lam 10 Crosby cotton top with lace trim, Theory "Raoka" floral print pants, M Missoni dress, L'Agence "T Lee" silk blouse and "Mackenzie" skirt.

Whether you're doing a low key brunch with friends, attending mass, a party at the club or sticking around the house for a drizzly egg hunt with the kids, we've got a look for you.

What are you doing New Year's...

What are you doing New Year's...

Christmas is behind us and we're in the home stretch of the winter holidays, which means it's time to figure out what you're wearing New Year's Eve.  Whether you're doing a low-key night at home with the kids, or headed to a big shindig with loads of friends, it's fun to plan a festive outfit to wear.  

New Year's Eve is a long night, so be sure to sport something comfortable, easy to dance in and of course chic!

From L to R: T by Alexander Wang sheer turtleneck sweater, RED Valentino strawberry jacquard mini skirt, Sara Weinstock yellow gold and diamond earrings, M Missoni crochet cross-body purse, L'Agence "Jane" silk tank, Vince tuxedo trousers, Sara Weinstock crescent moon pendant and bangles, Kim White clutch, T by Alexander Wang bandage dress, Rene Escobar Bangles, Ashlyn'd lucite clutch

It's all about the jewels with these looks, go bold, and don't be afraid to mix metals and stones for an outfit with tons of sparkle.  As always a vibrant lip and a sky high pump is a must for all three ensembles.

Wishing you and yours a fabulous New Year. Stay safe and have fun!

a midsummer night out

a midsummer night out

Balmy July weather calls for late night drinks and evenings out.  Take advantage of patio culture and schedule romantic evenings with your significant other and of course some girls nights. 

There are no rules when it comes to after work dressing anymore; you can dress jeans way up with heels and a silk top or dress a cocktail or maxi dress way way down with a denim jacket and flat sandals. Don't be afraid to experiment with your styling, and definitely don't forget your accessories and a bright coral lip!

Rag & Bone Dana Tunic, L'Agence June Dress, James Perse Ribbed Tunic Dress, L'Agence Romi Maxi Dress

Rag & Bone Charmeuse Cami, Current/Elliott Cropped Straight Jean, ATM V-Neck Tee, L'Agence Karen Skirt, Rag & Bone Zip Tank and Boyfriend Jean
