Faux Fur

Sultry Simple Style!

Even good girls can do it!

Sultry Olivia Swiadek

Rock stars made faux fur, edy look famous. But torn fishnets and battered six-string aren’t prerequisites for the sexy, rock glam look.

Winter White and Blush

Model Olivia Swiadek

Even the most clean-cut can simply tone down the color (do it in blush or pure white) and rein in the faux fur stardom and the attitude. This all-winter, light-glam look flatters almost everyone. The make up should look natural, and hair should be down and free. This is a perfect night out look so skip heavy boots and instead wear nude sandals or pumps to keep the mood soft.

Why did I pick this particular jacket? Just when I thought I had the hemline thing down and that I possessed a certain eye for proportion, a new, hot silhouette that I suddenly can’t live without had appeared: the half jacket. Half the coverage, double the exposure :) That is if you like bare midriffs of course! While it looks like a slashed jacket, it most definitely isn’t. And I am in love!

Check out BCBG faux fur jacket that Olivia is wearing, it makes the white cropped trousers look that much racier. It would also look fierce with a tight skirt and top. So flaunt your assets- but don’t think that just because half the jacket is missing, it will cost half the price.

Weekend Dress Code

This week is all about perfect pieces for a weekend in a hot spot like New York City or any trendy suburban neighborhood- from a fashion village bound top and faux fur vest to an ultrafeminine super comfortable pair of jeans and combat boots.

Let's get started with your cozy weekend look. Number one get the color right. The Fall/Winter collection featured a full spectrum of color- from outrageous neons to perfect primaries.  How to wear it?

20-year-olds or younger (like our model Angelica) can happily boast brights- including head-to-toe color and funky kaleidoscopic patterns or bold graphic sweatshirts. They can also experiment with textures and pair different styles like urban/boho or romantic with grunge. Shocking shades work well on 30-year-olds when scaled down to a chic accessory- think a vivid clutch or a pair of stilettos.

Update your wardrobe with pieces like slim pants or jeans that add miles to the leg and sleek, streamlined accessories.

Make a strong statement this season with punk-rock pieces, graphic sweatshirts and prints that pop.

Play with proportion: Try oversized coats, cardigans and vests.

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!

Wild One

Winter dark days are still ahead of us but many women out there embrace it with colors, prints. bold jewelry statements and mini leather skirts.  This is my interpretation of this brand new elegance and effortlessness.

Bag:DVF, Vest: Zara, Cardigan: H&M, Blouse: H&M, Necklace: H&M, Bracelet: Palm Beach, Skirt: IRO, Tights: Hue, Boots: Forever 21, Sunglasses: H&M

There is something appealing and almost irresistible about the "cheap," big, statement necklaces. I just love wearing them with collar, button down blouses and skin tight dresses.  Below is another look that features great oversize necklace by Sam Edelman and super comfortable vest by Stella+Lorenzo.

Necklace: Sam Edelman, Vest: Stella+Lorenzo, Sunglasses: Saint Laurent, Blouse: Spell, Skirt: Sally La Pointe, Bag: Sanctuary, Watch: Shinola, Boots: Raport.

 

Even the most dramatic looks can still be cozy and have a comfy appeal. In the look below featured are super funky but still girlie Stella McCartney sunglasses that I absolutely adore, cropped, leopard printed Dolce & Gabbana top and an amazing Sam Edelman faux fur vest.

Sunglasses: Stella McCartney, Top: Dolce & Gabbana, Vest: Sam Edelman, Necklace: Jewel Box Station, Bag: Marc by Marc Jackobs, Bracelet: Anndra Neen, Skirt: Adam Lippes, Boots: AKIRA

Another  "I am woman attitude" look.
