I Pair of Loafer Mules, 6 Ways


Apr24

The Fashion Editors at Elle have curated various looks, styled with Tibi's loafer mule. I personally haven't yet purchased a pair of mules, but I certainly love the versatility of this particular pair.




The mule meets the loafer in a hybrid of two of the season's most sought-after shoes. Though a favorite of editors and fashion bloggers alike, this tomboyish slip-on is not the easiest to style. So, let us put a few ideas in your head...

Solange Knowles for Ground Magazine by Seiji Fujimore


Apr16

I'm a huge fan of Solange Knowles! I love her style. She knows exactly what works for her and is not afraid to take risks. What I really love about Solange the person, is the fact that she's been able to step out of Bey's shadow and create her own persona. I recently read an interview, during which she states that it did take her some time to find her "own place" and tap into her sense of self. She went on to say that she is now in a happy place. It definitely shows!


Solange Gets Grounded—Gracing the pages of The Ground Magazine's fourth issue, neo-soul singer Solange Knowles shows off eastern inspired looks for this feature photographed by Seiji Fujimori. The songstress poses in dreamy silhouettes and colorful prints styled by Nick Nelson, spotlighting kimono robes, decorated fans and sandals. / Set design by Davis Davis, Hair by Chuck Amos, Makeup by Munemi Imai (Fashion Gone Rogue)

Full Skirting


Apr16

I've been obsessing over full skirts for some months now. Sure, the short ones are plentiful, but I was searching for midi length or longer. Initially, I set out to find a pretty floral, but most that I found were a little too dressy. While I love those styles (the ball gown skirts by Alice & Olivia are amazing!), I wanted a cotton version for spring and summer that I could dress up or down. I stumbled across the site Soft Surroundings, and found exactly what I'd been looking for.

Their "Etruscan" skirt more than fit the bill. Not only is the length perfect, but the print gives it that extra bit of flair, much like Dolce & Gabbana's version. I'm so in love with it! I'll pair it with simple white tee, a denim shirt tied about the waist, and a black and white top, striped or otherwise. Of course I'll add some cute flat sandals!

Shopbop: Gone to the Dogs!


Apr08

How cute is this! There's nothing like using a cuddly pooch to really sell it!


Top Dogs–Online retailer Shopbop
enlists dogs for its new spring accessories shoot featuring the hottest
of this season's trends. Enlisting canine talent from some of its
employees, the result is pretty amazing as the pooches rock sunglasses, bags and sneakers in metallic and neon tones. Check out images from the shoot below and see more on Shopbop.com. (Fashion Gone Rogue)

This AGELESS beauty makes for a stunning picture! And that hair......she should sport that style for a while!

Inside the fashion publication, the Somalian model poses for Douglas Friedman of Bernstein & Andriulli in standout spring looks styled superbly. "It's thrilling to work with such a legend – the most important photographers of our time have worked with her," Friedman remarks about the fashion icon and businesswoman. (Fashion Gone Rogue)

Spring/Summer Casuals


Apr01

For those times when one needs something beyond the flat sandal or thongs/flip flops, a cute sneaker or espadrille flat fits the bill. You know, the outdoor concerts/festivals, picnics etc. Though slip on sneakers reign supreme, The classic Converse also ranks high among the fashionable. As you will see here, Converse has upped it's game by creating some jazzier styles.  Tie-dyed, studded, and eyelet to name a few. My current favorite is the slip on.....I ordered the style from Joe Fresh, which I expect to wear with many looks. I also lovvvvvvve those by Chiara Ferragni (The Blonde Salad) and Steve Madden, but can't justify spending $139 for them.

The coolest of the cool? Vans. Check out those from Zappos (the last six pair), I want them all! Especially the Vans x Beatles version and those with daisies that say "love me, love me not" on the sides. Hopefully you see something that you like as well!

Spring Essentials?


Mar31

Featured are items which the editor's at ELLE magazine state are spring essentials. As I review "the list," I'm reminded that I need to update my trench....I'll probably opt for something colorful. While I love the idea of a crisp white dress, I usually shy away from them due to their transparency and the SPOT FACTOR. Additionally, I not a baseball hat person. I love the way that they look on other people, but they just don't work for me. See what you think.

Ah Spring!


Mar20

Happy first day of Spring all! I hope that you at least get a glimpse of sunshine today even though it might not be warm. My local forecast is 73 and sunny by the day's end, though it's still chilly at this point. In honor of the dawning of spring, I thought that I would pay homage to flat sandals. As you know, there are sooooooooooo many styles from which to choose. Had I added all that I wanted to, Id' be here for the rest of the day!

 I honed in on a couple of the biggest trends.....ankle-straps, and gladiators. Also, you've probably noticed an influx of Isabel Marant look-a-likes, inspired by one of her most popular styles from last year. I still get a shiver when I look at "Carol."


 photo: shefinds.com

Chinese Laundry's version, "Time Flies" is definitely one of the best, and sure to be a popular seller. I've included it below. Similar styles can be found on Go Jane, Forever 21, Lulus, just to name a few.

When sandal times arrives each year, they're always my first choice (aside from occasionally wearing a sneaker), as I'm not really a thong/flip flop person. While I like a thong-type sandal, I gravitate towards a toe-ring sandal like those from BCBG, shown in the first picture (those are on my list!). I just LOVE the way that they look on the foot. When I want something to just slip on, I will choose a style similar to the Michael Kors version in picture two. I'm also partial to both ankle-strap and gladiator styles, and look forward to adding some new ones to my closet.

Style Icon: Iris Apfel

This eighty-six year old lady is the epitome of style. She wears big, bold jewelry and beautiful ornate clothing. So popular is she, that a book was written about her titled: THE IRREVERENT IRIS APFEL: RARE BIRD OF FASHION. The book contains clothing and jewelry that is absolutely breathtaking. I like the fact that she has and revels in her "individual style". She does not follow the "fashion path"....she has created her own.

Gracious Beauty Audrey Hepburn

I think that she will always be remembered most for her role in Breakfast At Tiffany's, but from what I have read about her, she was a beautiful person inside and out. Here is a quote that was spoken by her that I think sums up the type of person that she was...."never let yourself grow up believing that anybody if different from anybody else.....love each other and do what you can for your neighbor".

Billie Holiday gave new meaning to singing a song.
