The No Hassle Tassel

Historically, tassels have been a symbol of serious stature but I find them to be fun and fringy.  

Today, tassels are the perfect accent piece. From earrings and purses to light fixtures and pillows, they can accessorize any outfit or space.

These tassels are definitely worth the hassle!

Feelin' Blue

Gemstone colors are the hottest trend right now. My favorite: Sapphire!

Incorporating deep purples and blues will add a level of sophistication and luxury to any look.

This Albion mini tote by Sophie Hulme paired with this beautifully designed study by Nannette Brown makes me swoon.

Embrace your birthstone. It’s trending right now.

Rock The Cage

It may technically still be summer, but the weather isn’t always warm this time of year. And, it can be especially frustrating on the feet. Sandals? Peep Toes? Booties?

Yes, the end of summer often leaves fashionistas caught between two wardrobes in a state of limbo. But, it doesn’t have to anymore.

This honey combed caged sandal by Gianvito Rossi bridges this fashion divide. Consider it the perfect transition from summer to fall because it’s a hybrid sandal and bootie.

It just screams, “Bring on the cool temperatures, I still look hot!"

And, this Vero chair by Arteriors does the same. It’s a great example of how traditional outdoor furniture materials like iron and linen can transition effortlessly from the outdoor patio to the formal sitting area. Its unique style can be the ideal accent to any room.

Don’t be afraid to rock the cage. Get inspired and mix your summer and fall attire!

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!

If you’re afraid of the Easter bunny, don’t be. His style is hoppin’ this Spring season!

Barely there pinks, mellow yellows, minty greens, baby blues and frosty purples bring a youthful charm to some seriously dressed up looks.  

And, layering these classic pastels with some basic colors like black, white, grey or brown will make those candy colors pop without washing out. 

These outfits from Whyred, Jil Sander, Burberry, Marc Jacobs and Versace do a good job of balancing the ordinary and eccentric by simply layering normal every day looks like a blazer and pairing it with different hues. 

Mixing up existing solid color furnishings with pastel texture finishes can create beautiful accent elements for the home. Especially, in rooms that have a connection to the outdoors: foyers, indoor patio's and even children's rooms.

This pretty in pink paint and purple wallpaper from Farrow & Ball, yellow rug from The Rug Company, green outdoor fabric from Perennials and blue ceramic tile from Ann Sacks will brighten up a room and spark a spring mood.

So go to the mall and buy yourself something pastel! Maybe you can take a pic with the Easter bunny too….

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!

Look Cool While Warming Up

I can’t get enough of my leather biker jacket in the fall, and I love incorporating metal pieces into urban spaces, but in the frigid winter months these two materials can feel cold and rough.

Incorporating a soft and plushy element like sheepskin can turn that edgy style into something more welcoming. The brilliant designers at Alexander McQueen know this and created a leather vest that’s oh-so HOT!

This concept works just as well in the home. Simply, add a furry layer into the mix to turn any metal furnishing into something cozy and fun.

Who wouldn’t want to curl up in this chair now?
