Fancy




~ Blazer - Thrifted, Top - Boy London, Skirt - Forever 21, Shoes - ShoeCult, Shades - Patricia Field ~

Sincewas feeling a bit "clueless" this morning when picking out something to wear, I thought, "What better way to make something out of this than to pay homage to one of my all-time favorite movies?" Needless to say, Clueless was my source of inspiration for today's attire; I mean, who wouldn't love channeling their inner Cher and Dionne! 

P.S. my other source of inspiration?...Iggy Azalea's fab video for her new song "Fancy," featuring Charlie XCX... Check it out here:

[ inside the brackets ]

This weekend I had the amazing honor of attending the debut trunk show of a blossoming lifestyle brand, [ insert ], also called 'inside the brackets.' The three words that come to mind when thinking of this brand: quality, exclusivity, individuality. 

The designer, Elzie, put so much thought behind each and every piece that was put out; this fact is proved by his 'one-garment a month' plan. Only one garment will be released each month to ensure the previously stated individuality of each garment. In speaking to Elzie, you see the deep passion and confidence that he has in his brand. He stated he feels that, "people often get cheated out of quality, even from brands who can afford to produce it." Elzie makes it clear to the world that he's bringing true craftsmanship and art into the world of fashion.

Hopeless Romantic

     Giambattista Valli once said that he doesn't shop, but rather buys things that inspire him and give him emotion. His 2013 Fall Couture Collection showed us just that...

     I don't think I've ever had an actual dream dress before...but that changed from none to about twenty the second I laid eyes on the dresses from Giambattista Valli's 2013 Fall Couture Collection.

     I fell completely in love with the "fine China-inspired" collection because of the romantic and ethereal image that Valli mastered incredibly. There was an evident amount of focus on detail with each and every piece in the collection. 

     Valli incorporated papery, thin lace and various amounts of ruffled textures to the dresses. The small, floral prints paired seamlessly with oversized, non-structured shapes. The vibrant hues of reds, yellows, and blues brought everything to life on the runway. 

     To make everything even cooler, many of the dresses were based on Sèvres, Meissen and Wedgwood fine China plates! (New York Times)


     Take a look at some of my favorite pieces from the collection...

The Urban Turban

     As women, we're always looking for new, exciting ways to accessorize our hair and one of my favorite ways to do that is with a turban. Turbans are so great because they're perfect during the day and can also totally dress up an outfit for the evening. And they're also amazing because of the many different ways in which you can wear them. Check out some fun ways to style your turban below.

In these photos taken for http://sistersoftheblackmoon.com/, we get a complete gypsy and earthy style that's so fun for the summer.


The always stylish June Ambrose, rocks her turban with an amazing fur for an uber chic look.


Everyone's favorite It Girl, Sarah Jessica Parker (Carrie Bradshaw - take your pick!) sports a colorful turban that adds an extra kick to her romantic pink dress.


Cara Delevingne, the super spunky fashion model, opts for a simple black turban which is perfect for everyone; perhaps if you're a bit less daring, go for a solid like this!


Lastly, a quick pic that Zac Posen posted on his Instagram with the simple caption "Turbans." Now tell me you wouldn't like to try these on!  http://instagram.com/p/Zx4NLjG9J5/

Spring Fever








I just have to start by saying it's been too long since my last post! So many wonderful things have happened in the past couple months that I am so happy about and I can't wait to share them with you all.

 Well starting off with today's events: I was lucky enough to get to see the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre performance at the Winspear Opera House. The show was beyond incredible and I was so inspired by the beautiful art that I watched on the stage.

Now...rewind to a few months ago when I applied to be on the BP. Fashion Board at Nordstrom. I am so blessed to be able to say that I was accepted onto the Board! This is such an amazing opportunity and words can't begin to express how much I'm looking forward to this. Can't wait to meet all the other members in August!:)

Everyone enjoy your week!!
