The Fringe Is In!

You don’t need to live in the wild wild west to rock fringe this spring and summer season.

The iconic western flare has been transformed into a sensual piece of art.

This look by Altazuurra is from their SS 2014 collection and combines classically clean lines with a surprising element of come hither fringe. What makes this outfit really stand out is the long, black leather strips.  They contemporize the customary camel-colored suede accents and elevate the overall look from “country cowgirl” to “city chic.”

These easy flowing thin strands can be incorporated into the home to create the same desire and sex appeal.

Take this Guernica lounge chair by Laura Kirar for McGuire furniture.  It combines all the elements of seduction and sophistication. In addition to being a perfect fit for a modern day log cabin in Aspen, it would feel right at home in any urban loft setting.

Pony up this season and buy yourself something fringe worthy!

The Rose Gold Standard

Most think that Memorial Day weekend marks the official start to summertime mingling and backyard drinking, but it’s my belief that the first weekend in May is when things really start to heat up.

The field is already set for the 140th Kentucky Derby but I won’t be paying too much attention to pole positions because my favorite part about the Derby is the dress code.

The nation’s most fashionable outdoor cocktail party is all about making a statement with pretty dresses, big hats and decorative drinks.

Even though I won't be attending the fastest two minutes in sports this year, I suspect if I could, I’d be draped from head to toe in rose gold because its elegance is understated and that makes a statement all its own.

Whether it’s running for the roses or to the kitchen for another drink, I'll be dashing across the grass in this Venetia sandal by Gianvito Rossi because it adds just the right amount of fancy to your feet.

And, no home bar is complete without a beautiful set of drinking vessels.

When all the other ladies will be sipping on Mint Julep’s from their silver cups, I’ll be lifting up this Hammered Moscow Mule mug (curated by One Kings Lane) because it enhances even the most lavish of drinks.

Let this weekend be your inspiration for all your upcoming summertime soirées.  Simply swap out those red solo cups and flimsy flip flops for The Rose Gold Standard in summertime cocktail attire.

Why Wait? Wear White!

Whoever said you can’t wear white before Memorial Day shouldn’t be doling out fashion advice.

White is one of those colors that’s on trend every season, especially in the Spring. It’s the go-to bright color that’s not too bold but daring enough to get noticed.

Take this look from Michael Kors Spring/Summer 2014 collection. Layering the same shade of white in various textures creates a simple and sexy look that works hard during the day and plays at night. 

And the kitchen is no different.

From white quartz to white lacquered cabinets, incorporating a range of materials in the same shade of white gives this kitchen the same type of multidimensional vibe.

With just a hint of gold, white on white never looked so right!

Spring Bling

If you want to put a spring in your step, just add an emerald to your everyday attire.

Transform your winter blues into Spring WOO-HOO’s by accentuating your look with an emerald green Givenchy Antigona bag. This classic piece will go with any bright white, blush or nude outfit that’s begging to come out of your closet.

This color concept easily translates to the home.

Take your front door and paint it with Benjamin Moore’s Kelly Green. It’s perfect for an outdoor space because it provides just the right amount of “pop” your home needs to stand out against the dreary colors of a brick, concrete or stone façade.

Turn heads this spring. Let emerald green be your bling!

Severe Spring Advisory

Spring brings flowers, fresh air, longer days, lighter jackets and refreshed looks.

It’s a time to shed all the layers, clean out your closets and open your doors to a brighter day. 

Vibrant greens, bright whites, blushes, nudes and floral prints are the “must haves” this season. 

Over the course of the next month, we’ll show you how to incorporate these trends to re-energize your wardrobe and home.

It’s what the designer ordered to feel alive after a dreadful winter.

Beauty And The Bug
Beauty and the Bug_Jolieid

The fashion and interior design world is a buzz right now with insects and this trend is bugging me!

From rings and purses to wallpaper and fabrics, these little creatures are popping up everywhere! Most of the bug designs can be a bit kitschy, but there are still fun yet tasteful ways to follow this look even if you are an insect-phobe just like me. 

Simply marry classic colors and patterns with an unexpectedly elegant twist.

A great example of this style are these sandals by Sophia Webster. The design of the shoe is so timeless that you barely notice the fluttering butterfly on the back.

I also love this black and white wallpaper by Vivienne Westwood for Cole & Son. The wild flowers and the creepy crawlers are so naturally intertwined that they are barely noticeable on the wallpaper print.

PS, I’d love to flutter around in these little buggers… Size 39, please!
