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!

Kate Moss for TopShop

The Kate Moss for Topshop summer collection has finally been launched!  Above is a video of Kate Moss modeling the collection.  I love the soft lighting continuously used in ads this season.  For those of you who have been waiting in anticipation, the collection is light and breezy with a lot of high-waisted feminine shorts.  The collection consists of more than 80 pieces. She played with fabrics such as lace, suede, silk and more.  Below I created 3 outfits from the collection.  What do you think?  Are you as excited as I am?

Working Chic

Since I have been living in work clothes for the past four years and that will all change starting next month, I decided to tribute my first ‘My Style’ post to my favorite work outfit.  Boyfriend blazers are key items for any working woman, they are business attire appropriate at the same time trendy.  This grey one is my favorite.  A new recent work attire MUST are high-waisted cigarette legged pants.  I have them in black, grey, and beige and can’t take them off.  They do need a certain body shape and must be worn with heels.  The brooch adds a Chanel touch to my outfit, it is Forever 21, and the black silk belt adds a different texture.

I got a comment from a colleague of mine, a guy actually, that said my outfit reminded him of a famous designer.  I asked if it was Karl Lagerfeld and explained to him what he looked like, and his response was “YES, Exactly!”  He made my day.  

PS.  Sorry the pictures aren’t the greatest of quality.  I will soon be fixing my camera or getting a better one.  Wish me luck!  If you have any suggestions of good professional camera’s please send them my way.  

Look of the Week: Hung on Hanneli

leave a comment »

This week I decided to feature Hanneli Mustaparta, a model, MTV VJ and fashion blogger, who hailed the fashion world from Norway.  I came across the tall beautiful Norwegian while reading the Vogue bloggers feature and that is when my obsession with her blog began.  

Since the Coachella Festival was held this past week and many cool vintage outfits take over the blogosphere, I chose to pick my favorite Coachella look. Hanneli’s look for the festival was the definition of spring fab yet somehow working well with the “hippie” look of the festival fans.  Here, Hanneli is wearing Catherine Hammel shorts, Nina Jarebrink Shoes, Selima shades and vintage Venice tourist scarf.  I also found the second picture, on Style.com, where the model is sporting almost the exact same attire, but instead of a cashmere sweater an American Apparel tank top and she switched her Nina Jarebrink bag for a Mulberry.  I love how the outfit is all cream’s yet the textures and shapes add style.  Be inspired.

Ps.  I decided to add this picture as well, another Coachella attendee that I thought was pretty cool.  I just couldn’t resist to keep it to just one!  I love the Catherine Hepburn/Brigitte Bardot look she is going for.  AWESOME VINTAGE ROMPER!
