pink && teal

10th January 2013

today, let’s brighten up the usual b&&w outfit with a pop of color

i’m all about the pop of color, it is always so perfect && so on trend for spring! but i couldn’t resort to just one surprising hue, i had to double my color with a pop of teal && a pop of deep pink (both hot colors for spring).

most either opt for pattern mixing or utilizing a color pop! but this year, be bold && try both! oh && when you’re looking to pattern mix try two geometric patterns like stripes && dots, gingham && polka dots or stripes && houndstooth (like me!).
did you splurge on a holiday day dress to die for? if so, here’s a tip on remixing your favorite festive frock for the new year! layer a cute cardigan over the top && cinch it with a statement belt to define your waist while making your dress look completely different!

all about audrey

31st December 2012

welcome back to the third && final holiday style stalking post! today i’m taking on the queen of class, audrey hepburn && shaking up her b&w style with my own takes on the a timeless look.

for my look i got inspired by audrey’s timeless stripes, whether wearing them on a dress or a little basic tee, no-one wore stripes quite like audrey!
I started by piling on the pattern (surprise, surprise) by mixing polka dots && stripes!
this dress is perfect for a holiday party or summer soiree, but not quite right for a brisk day. to make it work for december, i layered a turtleneck underneath && paired with thick tights to keep me toast!
 Since I couldn’t do a homage to audrey without pearls on pearls on pearls, I layered three of my favorite necklaces && bedazzled with a bow brooch. 
need your own statement pearl necklace? check out this tutorial here!
&& I couldn’t be audrey without a little bit of leopard…
oh, && of course a red lip is required…
before you go…
bree of uptown tulips will also be posting an audrey-esque on her blog, so be sure to stop by uptown tulips to see how she channels audrey.

parisian party

1st November 2012

today’s look is kate spade party perfection with a pop of parisian chic.

this striped celina dress is a girl’s best friend, everyone woman should have something like it hanging in their closet to dust off && wear for a special event … or just a wednesday.
ladies, believe in the power of layering. i took the dress from classic to quirky with a quick pop of my peter pan collar that reads “all the girls are mad” in french.
this look is 99% kate spade for a brand fan head to toe look, where the fun red && polka dot accents work as this outfit’s final touches for the perfect parisian party.
