Fall is my favorite season because you can layer lightly in your favorite pieces. The weather has been a little off this fall/winter, but I'm not complaining about the few days we're able to enjoy 50-60 degree weather. I wore this Tibi top when I was pregnant and haven't been able to wear it since I lost my baby weight. I styled it by wearing it underneath my crop sweater and voila! A completely different look and a new use for one of my favorite tops.
The weather has been bipolar lately. Winter came first, and then we were blessed with a few days of Fall weather. (Yay!) Regardless of weather and seasons, black is my favorite color for dressing, period. Timeless wardrobe staples you need: good quality quilted bag, Rag & Bone booties, stockings & a few LDB's. These Rag & Bone booties are one of my most comfortable shoes... ever. Currently on heavy rotation.

PUT A RING ON IT } Which colors do you love? I personally wear the Gold, Black, and Emerald every other day. I especially love to stack them up and pair them with multiple rings. On another note: doesn't Susie look gorgeous in this photo?! Love! <3
Get them here.
Sleek edge } Black and gold has to be one of the most sophisticated and classic wardrobe combinations regardless of what season it is. It's so fitting for every occasion! I'm completely in love with this Boy. by Band of Outsiders dress -- the perfect blend of masculine and feminine. I'd love to pair it up with our "Alex" mini cone earrings for a fierce, ladylike with an edge look. And how chic is this DVF dress? It's a modern take on her famous wrap dress with the gold waistband and so DVF! Just add our "Ribbon" cuffs to finish this sophisticated look!
High fashion chic } I wanted to do a black version of our last style post "bridal chic" (see below). Our "bridal chic" post was so popular, that I had to do a non-bridal version! =) There's a perfect little black dress for everyone -- every body type, every style, and every age. This one is one of my favorites of the moment! This dress by Milly is the perfect black version of J. Crew's dress from our post below. I love the simple, yet elegant bodice with a combination of the high fashion feather skirt. The waistband cinches your waist in and all you need are classic black pumps!
Usually, I would go for a collar necklace with this neckline, but with stunner statement drops like our Triple Doily Drops in black, you don't need anything on your neck. I found the perfectly sleek gold clutch to go with this outfit by Serpui Marie. The gold plating from our Triple Doily Drops are a nice accent to the gold clutch. With this outfit, you'll be classic and high fashion chic!! ;)
The bride wore white & silver } Sometimes, keeping it simple is so much more beautiful & chic!! Case in point... I completely fell in love with this gorgeous, fun, and whimsical J. Crew "Victoria" feather-skirt linen dress. And at $895 for a wedding dress?!! What a steal!!
Our Triple Doily Drops in silver glitter and Jimmy Choo's "India" mirrored leather heels in silver are the perfect pairing for this dress. Our Triple Doily Drops pack a stunning statement while framing your face with the classic dress neckline perfectly. The shoes are simple, yet elegant but completes the look beautifully! Ahh... if only I had an excuse to wear this outfit... I would feel like a princess for a day ;)
Not a bride? You can apply these simple rules to another color scheme for the same look and feel! 1. Choose a dress with a similar & simple neckline; 2. Statement earrings that stand out all on it's own, no necklace required (it would be over kill); 3. Simple & strappy heels to complete the look and... voila! =D
CHILLY SPRING } I guess April flowers brings May showers this year. The weather definitely has been a bit weird. We've had a mild winter and a pretty chilly spring. Counting our blessings though and we won't complain at all! Really hoping for a nice summer ahead... It was a bit chilly + raining off and on, so this has been practically my daily wardrobe -- simple tops with my Grandpa size cardi, skinny jeans, boots, and simple/easy necklaces like our "Charlotte" bow enamel necklace. Really love this Zara peplum-esque knit top! The navy blue stripes are perfect!
PATTERN LOVE } We're in love with these Jules Reid "Parker" tops! You already know we're head over heels about everything SCALLOP and the scallop edges on these tops are making us swoon. The floral pattern at the top is so pretty and the patterns on the bottom reminds us of jewelry! Such pretty and fun colors and patterns that we want to pair them with our necklaces! Pattern on pattern + color on color. Need these tops for Spring & Summer to wear with our jewelry collection asap!
What would you wear } with this Tibi printed dress? We are completely obsessed with Tibi's Spring collection full of pretty prints & gorgeous colors! Which necklace would you wear from our Spring/Summer collection with this pretty spring dress? This dress is perfect from day to evening with just a change in accessories!
1. Scallop Collar Necklace = Classic & ladylike; 2. Tribal Moon Necklace = Tribal chic; 3. Arrow Necklace w/ Thick Brass Chain = Ladylike with an edge.
Easy spring outfit } How effortlessly cool is this outfit? Perfect for a easy spring day! It's amazing how chic a casual outfit can be when you pair it up with a pretty pair of heels like these Jimmy Choo suede pumps. We love the slouchy pocket on this Kain tee, the fit & wash of the J Brand jeans, and this PS1 bag is the perfect size for running around the city. Our triple spike necklace adds a little edge to this outfit! Super easy & chic, right?! =)
Erin Fetherston - Resort 2011
Everyone is reviewing Spring 2011 Collections... but, I'm still swooning over Erin Fetherston's beautiful Resort 2011 Collection. I want to wear every single look in her collection. It's the PERFECT wardrobe for me! I'm madly, deeply, hopelessly in love, love, love. *sigh* This post is to be continued... =)
Olivia Palermo - Whether you love to love her or love to hate her, the girl has style! I wish someone would do an interview with her on her closet!! Wouldn't that be so interesting to see?? I want to see what she has in her closet and how she organizes it.
I love the way she dresses, styles herself, and accessorizes... there's no doubt she has impeccable style and knows what looks good on her + it doesn't hurt that she's absolutely gorgeous also!! Some people really do have IT ALL.
