Wardrobe Basics: Black Pant + Black Pump

Wardrobe Basics: Black Pant + Black Pump

The best way to stretch your wardrobe is to invest in basics pieces.

I believe every woman should have a good pair of black pants and a solid black pump in her wardrobe. It goes with everything, and will last longer (style-wise) than any other item you buy each season.

I’m not sure what the tall girls do, but if you’re short like me (I’m 5’2″) I recommend going to New York & Co., Banana Republic,…

Editorial: Has Michael Kors Become The New Coach

Editorial: Has Michael Kors Become The New Coach

That’s a spicy title coming from a fashion blogger living in a world where you only make it if you are neutral enough so a brand to ask you to offer sponsorship.

I thought it was more important to be honest in this fashion conversation than to be upholding to brands that may never knock on my internet door.

When I was a young lass, say 9/10ish, my then-stepmother was into Coach bags. Her cousins…

Still Alive

TestaRossa_Italy

I know, bloggers should be consistent.

I have the same excuse: Law school kills.

I’m literally sitting in class right now. I should be briefing a case, but I decided it was more important to address my readers.

This semester (yes, I’m taking 15 units this summer instead of sitting by a pool and take perspective selfies of my well-toned legs) I’m working on my law article. It is fashion related.…

Midnight Necklace Shopping {Lyst}

There are nights where I am up late and can’t possibly do anymore studying. This is how I end up doing some damage by online shopping.

Here are my latest Lyst picks for necklaces.

I am so intrigued with old Hollywood glamour (it is my favorite modern era style of dress) that I literally squealed at the sight of each look. The sophistication and femininity of this collection. I loved nearly every look!

While Mr. Valli said the inspiration encompassed sentiments of the late 60s, early 70s, it it said that his mood board contain vintage photos of Diana…

Olivia_Palermo_Wedding-1b

I’m sure you know by now that Olivia Palermo has gotten married. She went for a rather casual, yet chic look for her nuptials (she wore Carolina Herrera). I notice that many of the fashion girls opted for understated weddings. This initially surprised me, but when you have a person that wears beautiful things daily, going all out for a wedding isn’t really on the agenda.Olivia_Palermo_Wedding-1a

Victoria has come a long way from her Spice Girl days. Her sense of fashion is what made her my favorite Spice Girl back in the day. I co-signed her hideous matching outfits she wore with David. And I defended her proudly when naysayers said that she couldn’t build a real fashion empire. Look at us now, baby!

Anyways, I love to see Victoria in editorial spreads (she’s beautiful, no?) as she…

Beauty_Sunscreen-2b

The products that I mentioned in the previous post aren’t terribly expensive, but I though I’d mention two products that I’ve tried that are available at Target or your nearest drugstore.

I should also mention that I have combination/oily skin.

Beauty_Sunscreen-2aI wore the Aveeno for a few years before switching moisturizers. My main contention is that it smells odd to me.

Otherwise, it’s fairly lightweight and…

Protect Your Skin

 Beauty_Sunscreen-1b

Each summer, I find myself more surprised at the lack of skincare my friends and colleges provide for their skin. I thought wearing sun protection was the first thing one thought about when planning an outdoor venture.I guess I was wrong.

Look, the sun kills. Sure, we need some good ol’ vitamin D that doesn’t come from the latest multi-vitamin that we heard Gisele or some other perfect celeb…

Men don’t go through arduous cycles of trends the way women do, but what does change with men is how they carry on with business. Today’s workforce no longer requires a black suit and tie. Men now have the freedom to switch things up by wearing sneakers with their suits, or bomber jackets with a nice trouser. I believe that Alber Elbaz has captured this in this collection. This was…
