Shopping Bag: Tip Top

leave a comment »

For my second edition of my shopping bag, I decided to pick two tops perfect for fall.  They are two completely polar items but I like placing diversity and opposition hand in hand. 

I picture the Elizabeth and James printed blouse tucked in a cream trouser for a Margaux Hemingway look paired with a loose up-do, tan booties and the Fendi’s tan Classico bag.  Oh what a wonderful world! 

The Topshop knitted cropped sweater is fabulous for layering, a key fall dressing technique.  Layering is a great way to keep warm and add personality to your outfit.  Imagine a light grey long-sleeved tee, camel leggings, brown riding boots, a camel scarf, and a light grey large YSL Muse Two bag.  As Rachel Zoe would say, mah-jor!

My Style: The Definition of Me

with one comment

If you know me well, you know that this look can’t get any more Nadine.  I always play with trends and mix up my look and yet you’ll always see me go back to my original simple tailored look.  Are you thinking, what is there to this look?  My answer to you would be, some of the most stylish people we know, have the simplest looks ever. Examples include Carolina Herrera known for her never-changing white shirt matched with a black skirt, Tonne Goodman, Vogue’s Fashion Director, known for her classic american style and Karl Lagerfeld known for his black suit, white shirt, white pulled back ponytail and black sunglasses.  

I don’t mean to compare myself with these fashion icons, but I want to share with you a lesson that I have learnt throughout the years.  It is always fun to play around, but once you stick to what looks best on you, you’ll exude confidence, comfort and most importantly style.

Shopping Bag: Tanning it

leave a comment »

I decided to add a new feature to my blog, the shopping bag.  It is a great way to track my favorite items and at the same time share them with you.  Hopefully, I’ll be able to go back to these posts and purchase some items online or when I travel.  

The two items below don’t need much of an introduction, they speak for themselves.  Amazing, to die for, lusting over the both of them. The boxy bag is a Celine classic that will last a lifetime and the Louboutin boot is a not too rock star way of rockin’ the military look.

 I want want want!

My Style: Fancying Fall

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.

Diane Kruger in J. Crew, Hermes bag, and Lanvin shoes

 

Diane Kruger is by far one of my favorite fashionistas.  This week, just back from St. Tropez, Diane is taking New York, New York style; sporting none other than one of THE American retail brands, J. Crew.   She mixed two colors that I never thought of putting together, a bright purple sweater cardigan with a chrome green tweed skirt.  She accessorized with a black Hermes across-the-shoulder bag, Lanvin nude pumps with black ankle straps and gold chain details, and a straw fedora.  The whole outfit is UNEXPECTED, stuff I would never think of putting together, but it WORKS.  She looks amazing.

Having a guy like that by your side sure helps your look!

Lauren Remington Platt at Saks & Whitney Museum Cocktail Event

White outfits are elegant, dazzling, and classic.  One of New York City’s socialites, Lauren Remington Platt, wore an all white outfit to a Saks & Whitney Museum cocktail event.  I loved how she plays with materials, such as the chiffon top worn with a stretchy silk skirt.  Then she accessorizes her outfit with fabulous silver accents.  Her heavy silver necklace, embroidered evening bag, and bedazzled shoes add an amazing richness to her outfit.  Be inspired.
