Leopard Layers :: Fur Vest & Jean Jacket

Faux Fur Vest :: H&M (similar here)
  Jean Jacket:: Gap (here)
Dress :: Phillip Lim for Target (here
Boots :: Zara (splurge here)
Bag :: Phillip Lim for Target travel bag (here)

The extreme temperature drop in Boston today has put me in an arctic state of mind. One of the things I love doing during the winter is layering my fur vest over or under everything to stay warm as well as create interesting textures. As a layering piece, it’s a practical investment to keep you cozy on those frigid days. As a statement piece, a fur vest adds interest to any outfit with its luxurious texture.  Here I layered my fur vest over a leopard dress to break up the palette and added a jean jacket to blend everything together; this gives the outfit an understated yet chic look. The trick to wearing any fur piece is to avoid looking like Cruella DeVille through a careful balance of color and volume. Add a bit of sparkle to your accessory such as these earrings from Anjolee and you'll feel like the most glamorous girl at the next holiday party!

Fall Essentials :: Layering with Faux Fur and Phillip Lim

Blouse :: Phillip Lim for Target (here)
  Faux Fur Vest:: H&M (similar here)
Jeans :: Mossimo Target (here) (Splurge pair here)
Shoes :: Aldo (similar here)
Bag :: Phillip Lim for Target yellow top handle bag (Sold Out) (Splurge here)
Necklace :: H&M (Splurge here)

Now that the cold weather is here it is time to bring out those layering pieces. Autumn is by far my favorite season and it brings out the best in fashion layering. As long as you have the right pieces and accessories, layering is not only comfortable it is chic as well. First pick out your favorite faux fur vest, add some patterns such as a floral blouse or polka dots or both in my case to complete your ensemble. Add some accessories such as jewelry, knitted hats or scarves to give your layering some depth then finish off with leggings/ripped jeans and you're ready to brave the brisk air. Here I added a gold tassel necklace and silver ring from Modern Design to complete my look, have fun and Happy Fall ladies!

Out on a Lim :: 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target Part 1


Shorts :: H&M (similar here)
  Top :: Phillip Lim for Target (here)
Heels :: Zara Spat Heel (similar here)
Bag :: Phillip Lim for Target mini satchel with gusset (similar here)

I have to admit, I did not wake up at 6am to line up for the Phillip Lim collaboration with Target. It wasn't that I didn't want to, I just forgot...

In any case, after realizing my mistake a week later I began my search for the coveted bags. My hard work paid off. I was able to get my hands on a few of the bags from the collection. Most notably is the mini satchel with gusset as seen here. This particular bag resembles Phillip Lim's pashli mini satchel the most which costs about $650. Our mini gusset on the other hand was only $35!
The quality of the mini gusset was surprisingly really nice for a Target product. It's sturdy with all functioning hardware and most importantly it comes with a detachable shoulder strap which makes it versatile as well, always a plus!

Did you ladies snag anything during this collaboration?

Lovely Lace with

Shorts :: c/o (here)
  Top :: Rampage (old)
Heels :: Steve Madden (here)
Clutch :: American Apparel (here)
Earrings :: c/o (here) [more info tomorrow]

Lace has already been seen in directional collections in various permutations and it is high time the lace look translated across to denim. The antique associations of lace and lace looks clash with the informal, relaxed qualities of denim to add a touch of vintage femme.

I love the look of these crochet lace flower shorts, the intermix of ubiquitous denim cut off and lace gives such a romantic 70's summer feel. Check out today for more lace/denim combinations.

Postcards from DC | Cherry Blossoms

 This trip was beyond dreamy - I've been wanting to see cherry blossoms for the last 4 years but Finals always got in the way. The weather was perfect, the setting was impeccable in every way and most importantly our family was able to stay together amidst everything that has been going on in Boston.

It's important to know a good thing when you have it; I certainly relished every second of this trip. Thanks for stopping by and please keep Boston in your heart! #prayforboston

Photos taken in Washington DC near the Jefferson Memorial and Tidal Basin. Wearing: H&M blouse and crossbody bag, Juicy Couture and Arden B sunglasses (I switched out to the Arden B ones because it was too sunny), DKNY watch, Pinkbarry bracelets.

Going Edgy with Tweed

Sunnies :: Arden B (old)(similar here)
 Jacket, Top, Jeans, Shoes :: Zara (similar here, here, here, here)
Bag :: American Apparel Clutch (buy here)

Tweed is definitely having a moment this Spring and we can't get enough. Known as a high quality fabric with a rich ancestry, tweed received a modern revamp in the 1950's by Coco Chanel thereby making it a must-have fashion investment. From jackets to shorts, tweed is popping up everywhere. Worn the right way, I believe tweed can be sophisticated and fun at the same time. That being said, tweed can easily become unflattering so make sure to find pieces that work for your body. An easy way to make sure you don't end up looking frumpy is by wearing tweed pieces in edgier cuts, like a moto jacket as I've done here. To balance out the outfit I paired it with casual ripped jeans and high Mary Janes to give it an edgier look. The best part about fashion is experimenting. Whether it's a tweed skirt, pant or jacket, they will look amazing with pretty much anything. You just have to find the right fit and style for you. Have fun with it!

Spring Look :: The Harem Pants

Sunnies :: Arden B
Top :: H&M
Cape, Pants, Booties :: Zara
Bag :: eBay

Harem pants - the baggy, slouchy trousers tapered at the ankles that conjure images of  MC Hammer. Harem pants might be the season's trickiest trend, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't give it a try. Don’t feel pressured to sport the full-fledged “harem” look, you can opt for a soft, loose fitting trousers where the waistline sits around your waist or slouch lower around your hips. Here I balanced out the silhouette with a top in a solid color and heels to lengthen the look. I paired the outfit with a Zara cape but it would also look great with a cropped jacket to show off your figure. When wearing these pants, just be sure to keep the rest of your outfit simple; you don’t want to over accessorize and look like a genie :) I love my Zara harem trousers, they are comfortable yet still edgy - they are a fashionista's version of sweatpants! 

Ladies - what are your thoughts on harem pants?

Here's some quick snapshots of what's been going on in my life. I welcomed a little golden dragon last December, he is now 6 weeks old. I just can't get enough of his sweet dimples!
