Celebrity Style Icon

A Fashion Page Makeover, The Prettiest Yellow Top, Style Crush- Victoria Beckham

I want to give a nice warm welcome to our newest resident photographer and photo editor, John Rounds. He took shots of this entire post and one coming up next week. I can't wait to share more of his shots with you over the coming days and months. John truly believes there is something beautiful in capturing the special moments in someone’s life.  His photography has the ability to bring you back to a special place, a walk down memory lane, to life’s most joyful times. I am honored to be able to work with such an amazing photographer. Please browse John Rounds' website at www.jroundsphotography.com  for more information about John, his portfolio, and the recent happenings on his blog.

Leave your coat at home when you're stepping out in a yellow statement-maker like this. Granted, it's not for the style-shy, but a good bold color piece will never look dated. I was hoping to achieve a ladylike look, polished, never fashion victim. My favorite style shortcut is classic clothes with trendy accessories. I hope you enjoy this look and stay warm through this frigid catastrophe of a weather.

Style Crush: Victoria Beckham

It's been a long time since Victoria Beckham has enchanted the world for the first time as Posh from Spicegirls! Since then, she made it her mission to redefine her success in fashion industry .  Of course being married to a timeless hottie like David Beckham did not hurt. The rest is history. Below are my favorite looks by this tiny little woman who I absolutely adore!

Don't forget to click on the WEEKLY OUTFIT PLANNER for this week's wardrobe inspiration featuring fun pieces like floral, pleated skirt that is so "in" this season!

Crisp white sweaters, dresses and jackets are the ultimate winter signature wear this season. I love white paired with gray and silver. Here I decided to go for a little bit of Aspen chic meets Anthropologie boho.

WEEKLY PLANNER

It’s easy to fall into a regularity of wearing the same thing every day. To revive up our melancholy for this week, I looked to the street and newest trends for elegant, easy style inspiration. Consider the seven looks below my pre-planned, hassle-free attires for the week.  When I decide what to wear I first pick one inspirational piece- a T-Shirt, shoes, bag or earrings, I style around it my entire outfit. It can be a very creative and fun process...

Black Essentials

The Look: A.L.C FW 2014 Ready to Wear Collection. Coat: A.L.C, Eyewear: Ray-Ban, Turtleneck: A.L.C, Scarf: GPBlue, Pants: A.L.C, Bag: A.L.C, Shoes: Derek Lam 10 Crosby.

The weather outside’s been frightful already! When pallor overtakes radiance, I turn to black parkas or black A.L.C trench coat.  A little shine on the face can be really healthy; here we have shiny Ray-Ban original aviator sunglasses that will brighten your brow bones.  With a glow like this no blush, or bold lip color is necessary instead you can wrap your neck with blue and striped GP Blue knit scarf.  And since one of the best colors for fall is black- black A.L.C turtleneck sweater and A.L.C Terry side snap pants are perfectly appropriate.  To complete our A.L.C F/W 2014 Ready To Wear collection inspired look, I would wear A.L.C clutch in grey and Derek Lam 10 Crosby ankle boots, which are simply glamorous


 

Another look with black parka, turtleneck and black trousers.

Bag: Chloe, Scarf: Failero Salarti, Shoes: Giuseppe Zanotti, Sunglasses: J.Crew, Coat: J.Crew, Jumper: Sacai, Pants: Schumacher, Necklace: Sia Taylor

Dakota Story

Dakota Fanning, together with her sister Elle Fanning is a style icon that represents ease and effortless.  I am super excited about the release of Emma Thompson’s story of the love triangle between art critic John Ruskin, his wife Effie and the painter Millais titled “Effie Grey” starring Dakota Fanning.  I saw the trailer and definitely want to see it.  

Also found this great blog on Tumblr http://fanningfashion.tumblr.com/ that identifies all of the outfits worn by Dakota or Elle fanning. Really cool if you are a big fan.
