Buttons & Bows

21st June 2012

Today’s look has a few componets: it helps us dress down a dressy dress while combining a few current trends: tomato red, denim, pops of color and arm parties.
Recognize this dress? It’s the Kate Spade Jillian dress I wore for my MBA graduation, but today it’s getting a casual make over! Here’s how I took it from dress to day…

With the Jillian dress, a little bit of layering can go a long way! I paired a button up shirt under the dress  to dress it down a bit!
Arm partys are all the rage right now! So as always I piled on the arm candy with lots of bracelets, bangles and bling!
A pop of color is always a great way to make a statement for spring! For this outfit I choose a turquoise necklace and turquoise gum drop studs for that perfect pop! 
Denim is also really big right now from colored skinnies to chambray tops. For this look, layering a denim button up under the jillian helped dress it down!
Tomato red was all over the spring runway from prints and patterns to bold solids! It is a super easy trend to try, play it safe by pairing it navy, denim or brown, or be bold by pairing it with turquoise (like me) or even yellow!
 I finished the look by neutralizing it with gold.

Calling Zooey

7th May 2012

hey dolls! thanks for the time off. my blogging will still be minimal this week, but I wanted to post for marketing monday, yay!
today were looking at one of my favorite fashionista’s Zooey Deschanel and her new Iphone 4S commercial. I am also providing you with so much zooey approved shopping options! But before we start shopping, take a peak at the commercial!

Tomato red (or red orange) is a hot color this spring (and fall too, yay)! Wear it head to toe for a monochromatic look (see how I wore it here) or wear it in small doses for the perfect pop of color. 
Zooey may have been avoiding “real” shoes, but you don’t have to! Here are some great zooey-girlie shoe finds for the fashionista on a budget!
Pajama party? I love that Zooey is wearing simple and chic pajamas in this ad, especially since I have been recently obsessed with cute pjs (post soon to come). You too can sleep in style by cuddling up in these cute pieces.
Can’t get enough zooey? You’re in luck! I’m kind of obsessed with her…. she I feature her often! so be sure to check out my other zooey posts!
