Fantasy Fashion Becomes Reality

So you're looking for a pump with a little pizazz, something you can wear to work, but hoping it will then take you to happy hour.  Try this on for size, a python tapered toe with a 3 1/2" python covered heel, unconventional yet neutral in color, sound good so far? Sergio Rossi has certainly created a positively provoking pump if you're interested in shedding $920 for python.

Now let me introduce to you the Corso Como "Del" in Tie Dye Python, oh yes I went there with the tie dye, but it's not what you think.  Feast your eyes on this super shoe, 3" heel, tapered toe, simple, stunning, and complete with spunk.  The best part is they're only $123! Beautiful, basic, and best of all easy on the wallet!

With it being Memorial Day I felt it was only appropriate to highlight a patriotic spirit in this morning's blog.  With the cookouts and sales going on (don't forget about ours) it's easy to look past the real meaning of today.  So why not show your support through your style!

All-American style is incredibly easy to pull off with just red, white, and blue, but to avoid looking like a walking flag I wouldn't recommend pairing all three together at once. Stripes and star patterns are also acceptable and maybe even throw in a little black for contrast.

Fashion Rx: Your Weekly dose of what to wear!

Well it's Memorial Day Weekend, which means picnics, barbecues, and pool parties.  Outdoor activities do not require dressing to the nines, instead you want to stay cool, comfortable, and chic as you battle the summer heat.

The Cure: Pleasant Picnic Picks

Easy, breezy, loose fitting silk is the way to go.  The lightweight, flowy material will keep you cool, choosing a spirited print will keep you in the fashionista spotlight.  Pair the tank with tailored shorts and flat leather sandals and you are picnic perfection.

Sometimes a modern spin on an old classic is just the thing to liven up your wardrobe, which is why I'm loving Rochas take on a peep-toe clog. The suede platform with criss-cross bands and gold tone buckle at the vamp is chic and contemporary. It's the perfect fit and is only $945, ok maybe it's not so perfect.
Rochas, $945

On the other hand Gentle Souls spin on a classic is also pretty cutting edge. With similar styling this chunky heeled wonder will keep your look fresh and fashion forward. At just $209 these may be a perfect fit after all.

Fashion Rx: Your weekly dose of what to wear!

Sometimes I get so caught up in the sundresses and maxi's of spring and summer that I forget about another super fun and flirty piece, the skirt!  This versatile piece can be mixed and matched to take you from super casual to glam and from the office to a night on the town. Today I'll give you something tame to start with and see where your imagination takes you.

The Cure: Skirt Smarts
This simple paper-bag skirt is paired with a striped sequined cami, neutral blazer, envelope clutch and pumps, perfect for the office.  When you're ready to hit up happy hour, lose the blazer and trade out the pumps for something strappy and sexy, maybe pile on a few accessories to glam it up and you're good to go!

Flower Power

So maybe you aren't the type of girl who goes for the dainty, girly, floral print; you're more of a standout, you like bold pattern and color.  You might change your mind about florals once I fill you in on a hot spring trend!  Bold florals are storming the runway, according to InStyle,
These prints "are a far cry from romantic, these standout prints can punch up your most basic outfit.  They may be inspired by nature, but their graphic allure makes them city-friendly. Some are even nightclub-worthy"

Sound like this is more your speed? To effortlessly pull these prints off look for streamlined shapes and pair the print with something clean.  Make sure you keep the colors vibrant and add as little or as much floral to the look as you like!

Fashion Rx: Your weekly dose of what to wear!

So the weather is getting warmer and you are looking to bear more skin, but that's not always work appropriate.  What's a girl to do?

The Cure: The short and short of it...

So I'm going to offer a suggestion and I just want you to keep an open mind.  Have you ever considered a work short? A bit longer than a short short and a bit shorter than a bermuda short and much more tailored than both, this item is totally office A-okay and incredibly versatile.  I've chosen a nautical like look with a scoop neck striped top and a fab pair of heeled sandals, but you could pair with a camisole and blazer, or a more tailored blouse, or...well the possibilities are endless. So go ahead a show some skin in a safe and stylish way!

Spotted: Carrie Underwood wearing a fab pair of laser cut wedges with skinny jeans and sparkly top.  Now while I don't know what brand she's wearing, I'd hazard to guess they're pretty pricey, but good news for you, we have a pair that looks oh so similar.

This look can be yours with our Tamara from Miz Mooz! The peep toe wedge with patterned cut-outs and stitching is the perfect way to add a little edge to your ensemble.  Pick up a pair for only $124!

Parisian Chic

It's hard to ignore the timeless je ne sais quoi of the self assured French woman.  Her look is consistently effortless and put together and yet seems so elusive. But, you too, can pull of Parisian Chic with ease.

Based on basic pieces from the perfect jean, the cashmere sweater, the trench, and of course the little black dress, parisians keep it simple. Accessorizing with flats, a black tote, and complimentary jackets the style evolves for each individual while still maintaining its uncomplicated conviction. It's springtime in Paris and who wouldn't want to emulate that?!?

Fashion Rx: Your weekly dose of what to wear!

What to wear, what to wear, well that's what I'm here for isn't it?  Do you ever have those days where you feel a little quirky and you want to bring that out through your style? Well that's how I'm feeling today and that's where my inspiration stems from.

The Cure: Off-beat Beautiful

So I decided to combine trends again this week with polka dots, chambray, and colored denim in a preppy meets kooky look, whether or not you think it works all has to do with the confidence you carry yourself with. Most everything,  except the jeans, can be considered neutrals so why not add a pop of color!  Adding specific accessories will meld your look with a certain style, which is why I went for pearls and bows.  They up the prep factor.  Sweet and sassy all in one!

Bold flower prints big this season so why not carry them from your clothes to your shoes! Manolo Blahnik's floral print, linen, peep toe sandal is a great way to incorporate a prominent print in a subtle way.  The only problem is the effect won't be as subtle on your budget, these will run you $775.

But of course I have a fabulous alternative for you!  Sam Edelman's Odetta sandal incorporates a bold floral print and a fresh summer shade (yellow) for a pair of seasonally smashing sandals! The added bonus with this pair is a thicker heel allowing for more support and stability in line with style. At $132 these are a steal!
