Winter White or Wedding Inspiration?

Valentino's all white collection that debuted last week, was nothing short of a savoir-faire fantasy in whites and creams draped in delicate lace and luxorious silks.  Although these designs where very reminiscent of the white collections designed by Valentino in the 60's, could these gowns also maybe inspire us for the up and coming wedding season (which is right around the corner, by the way)?  Either way, this collection has everything from simple elegant lines to layers upon layers of intricate lace, you'd seriously have to be crazy not to want to wear it, or at least beng watch My Fair Lady.

How to Rock the Black on Black Look

Black on Black is a hard look to pull off.  You may want to rock a great top you found last weekend  with amazing detailing but 9 times out of 10, no one else will notice because it's black.

It's cool, we get it.

Even though Anna Wintour may disagree, there are ways to pull off the Black on Black look and totally love it.

There's a ton of occupations out there where employees have to wear black on black, and it can be difficult to love your look.  Work in retail? merchandising maybe?  You may even work at a photo studio, bottom line, you have to wear all black and it can be boring, here's how to change that.

The trick to wearing black on black is being able to mix textures and play around with different shapes (it can be fun, promise). 

The chic oversized look is a huge trend this season and looks good on everyone and every body shape.    This look creates a loose but structured silhouette, while making us look leaner.  Like simple, clean lines?  This look is for you.

This look is my personal favorite for working in the studio and is great for someone who moves around alot, but still wants to look chic and professional.  This look took the fashion world by storm this fall and is very easy to pull off for those of us who work earlier than the 9-5ers.   

Mixing luxe textures and chunky knits are key to pulling off this look as well as asyemmetrical shapes.  Leather is a huge fabric this season and looks great with all textures.  Want a different look for work?  Try leggings (nice quality ones, not the $.99 ones at your local drugstore) with structured detailing such as piping.

Preppy ruled our wardrobes last fall and winter, why not return to the basics this season as well?  There's nothing wrong with a clean line and polished look, especially for work.  Work in an office?  A cubicle, even?  

We got you, girl.

You can dress nice and be comfortable too.  Is that button down too boring to wear to work?  Doubt it, there's always a fresh way to bring anything to life in your closet.  Try wearing a basic tee and miliary jacket with your skirt to work.  You're still dressed up with a modern clean line.

On the Twelveth Day of Christmas


As the last day of the 12 Days of Christmas, it's time to give your home a little something special this christmas with a drum table, the perfect accent.  It looks great with a stack of your favorite magazines or books, as additional seating and of course, an accent to your favorite room.  You can never go wrong with a metallic finish, no matter what time of the year it is the modern design of drum tables can really make your favorite pieces in the room stand out.  This year ask for a drum table (your living room with love you).

On the Eleventh Day of Christmas



Men never have enough pajamas (especially in winter) and this time of the year boxers just won't do.  Why not gift a great pure cotton pair this year that has a luxurious look and polished details that also has a comfortable feel.  Most men honestly don't prefer silk pajamas because they are "uncomfortable" (or at least that's what I've been told) so why not give him the same look that he can actually lounge in.  Classic blue is always a great choice and the piping really polishes the look and almost looks nostalgic.  Although today's gift has nothing to do with a wind instrument, beauty (and comfort) are in the details and this gift is sure to please even grandpa.

On the Tenth Day of Christmas


What's better than glitter printed workout gear?  Top of the line running shoes for him (why not work on a New Year's resolution together this year?) that are not only top performance but on the top of most gift guides this season as well.  These sneaks are great for the beginner as well as the experience runner, with their almost weightless knit like upper part of the shoe that comfortably holds your foot in place as you move and the foam sole provides the needed balance and comfort support.  This shoe comes in 7 different colors/patterns, get them while they're hot!
