Don’t Mix Prints! That was once the conventional rule of fashion, but again and again, people have flouted the rule with great success. It’s tricky and can look atrocious, but folks who can mix prints well are among the most exciting fashion designers and icons. Gia Seorn of Gizza knows how to mix prints. The collection of five Tracy Strapless dresses recently released by Gizza is a masterclass in mixing prints.
Thalia Heckroth™ released a fun new jacket that I added to dress. I love sleeves, so often add a jacket over strapless tops and dresses. The details are perfect and happily fits comfortably over a dress. My pet peeve with mesh jackets is that they too often can only be worn with applied textures or with a set piece made just for that particular jacket. I love to find jackets that I can wear with other brands.
I am loving this big puffy coat from Baiastice for this month’s Collabor88. A puffy faux fur dyed a brilliant blue, it also comes in several other colors. There are thigh high boots that coordinate as well, but I went in a different direction. Continue reading →
I am so in love with this Blaire blouse from Blueberry, mainly because of the attention to detail. Look at those perfect seams, the pockets, the buttons, the cuffs. Everything about that blouse is exquisite in the details, even the wrinkling around the elbows. To top it off, the blouse is released with a tucked and untucked version. When something so simple and basic as a white shirt is elevated with these kinds of details, that is when clothing becomes fashion. Even better, there is a HUD that lets you choose from many colors for the fabric and the buttons. Continue reading →

Zaara released a wonderful three-part outfit at Collabor88 this month. I always prefer it when designers release their outfits as separates. This allows us to wear the tops with other skirts, shorts, or jeans. We can wear different tops, even sweaters, with the skirt. To top it all off, there is this beautiful belt that is a perfect complement to the skirt, but I can picture looking fabulous on a sweater or body-con dress. Continue reading →
It’s only day 2 of Blogtober and I’m fueling up with soup while I work on editing photos. I’m ready for the challenge…and Sophia is gonna have to work hard because I am pretty competitive. I was going to make it easy on her and take today off…but no. Continue reading →
My friend Sophia said “I need someone to commit to blogging every day with me to help motivate me.” I personally need that too because I’ve gotten so lazy, lounging about looking pretty in the same clothes for days – LIKE A PEASANT. So I answered her back and told her it’s ON. We decided we’re calling it BLOGTOBER and it’s an opportunity to refresh our brains, re-energize our passion and get back to what we love.
I challenged her to go shop at a mainstore, NOT an event post, for our first day of commitment and so here I am, slathered in Sn@tch. Continue reading →
