My Style: Natty Nautical

leave a comment »

Who doesn’t like the nautical look?  There are so many ways to wear it that no matter what your personal style, you can wear nautical.  I opted for the more tailored nautical look blended with a little Rachel Zoe.  Rachel Zoe because of the wide legged jean which I am very excited to bring back out from my old jean closet.  Wide legged pants are huge this fall/winter and I couldn’t be more excited.  I topped of the jeans with a white tank, my nautical stripped Zara blazer and a nautical inspired Uterque scarf.

My Romantic Retreat

with one comment

I am feeling very romantic and feminine these days, actually it has been since the beginning of 2010.  I want anything girly and delicate.  Whether it be a bouquet of pink peonies or vanilla cupcakes with pink frosting or a blush lace dress.  It all started when I got engaged and lace became ever more present in my wardrobe.  I started wanting more delicate furniture in my house instead of contemporary.  And the list goes on.  Therefore, I created inspiration boards to share.  BE INSPIRED!

Newly married Megan Fox chose one of my favorite designers, Azzedine Alaïa, to the VH1 Do Something Awards in Hollywood.  She wore a tan colored frock with matching Brian Atwood pumps and you can’t go wrong with either Alaia or Atwood.  I love that this dress is a delightful departure from her usual super sexy all-baring outfits.  

The Tunisian born designer is a favorite among the world’s most influential fashion industry insiders. He is synonymous for his flattering dresses and avoiding the limelight.  I  wish I owned a little black Alaïa, someday I’ll save up for one, because his silhouette has lasted decades and will continue to do so.

Find wardrobe staples such as a little black dress or a white blouse or a camel coat and invest in them. They will never go out of style so quality and fit are vital.  BE INSPIRED!

Loving Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton Fall 2010 Ad Campaign

I am usually not the biggest Louis Vuitton fan, but the Fall 2010 collection is to die for, mainly because he brought the woman back.  Don’t get me wrong, I am a huge fan of the androgyny look, but I am always thrilled to see something different.  Marc Jacobs brought us back to the 1950’s voluptuous era.  Very Mad Man-esque.

My favorite part of the whole collection is the beauty pump.  I wish I could own the blue croc version but they are the price of a Chanel bag!  So I figured the satin version would be a little more affordable.  I can imagine wearing them now and storing them in my closet for when I am 40, 50 or 60 and they will remain to look chic.

My Style: Fancying Fall

leave a comment »

I am super excited for fall because I love mid-season looks.  Today’s look is inspired by this wonderful renewed vintage Bishette bag.  The pinkish red color with beige and brown, the texture of the chenille fabric and the vintage frame make this bag one of my favorite Bishette’s of all time.  This classic 1940’s shaped bag is perfect for a day out around town while also working an evening bag.

Giovanna Battaglia.  The name is enough for the fashion blogging world.  You’ll find her in every fashion blog and I had to be included.  The Italian former Dolce & Gabanna model is now a fashion editor at L’Uomo Vogue (Italian Men’s Vogue).  She is even dating Carine Roitfeld’s son Vladmir.  But what is most important of all, her sense of style.  She somehow looks chic, classic, trendy and unique always and all at once.  I love this colorblock outfit because it is summery, girly and at the same time very professional chic.  

 

She is simply a fashion icon.  Garance Doré, one of my favorite bloggers, wisely said ” It’s just that Giovanna can wear whatever she wants and she still stays Giovanna. Always, and never the same, with her hair down or up, in a parka or evening gown, never a fault in her taste, she is the incarnation of the famous adage that we are all so tired of hearing, mostly just because it’s true: Fashion comes and goes. Style stays.” – Garance Dorè

 

For sure you’ll see more of Giovanna to come. BE INSPIRED!

Mixing Prints

I saw this picture on Fabsugar.com and had to share it with you.  I have been wanting to post on the mixing prints trend forever ago and never got to it. I feel that this editorial image is the perfect inspiration.  Hopefully the picture above and my collage below will encourage you to mix prints in your fashion and interior design choices.
