Caftan Dreaming

February 5, 2015

These freezing temperatures have us dreaming of warmer weather and sunny beaches.  Luckily, we have been unpacking boxes of brightly colored swim suits and cover ups to keep us busy.  Caftans were all over the spring runways and we can see why!  These billowy dresses work double duty as a coverup and a dress.  That means less for you to have to pack for you next trip!  Megan Park will have you ready for the beach with her Belize Patch Sleeve Caftan.  The floral printed silk is the perfect cover up and dress for you next vacation.  The loose and flowy silhouette will keep you cool and comfortable in the heat.  Her piece can also be worn as a dress whether or not you’re on vacation.  During the day you can pair it with your favorite sandals and then slip into some wedges for night.  Megan Park’s Beaded Necklaces can also be worn as bracelets and we love how the green and violet thread pick up the bold colors in her caftan.

Tolani never disappoints us with their vibrant patterned dresses and tunics.  They are a warm weather staple that should be in everyone’s closet.  You can easily throw on one of their dresses and instantly look chic.  The Odelia Caftan is just what you need this spring and summer to achieve that effortless bohemian look that is on trend this season.  It will look great over your swim suit while you’re out on the boat.  Pair this with a statement gladiator sandal and some oversized sunglasses for a simple, yet stunning look for the day and slip on your favorite wedges for a night out!

Bag of Biscuits

January 28, 2015

Another great shipment of Rebecca Minkoff bags have arrived in the store this week and we couldn’t wait to share them with you!  All four of these pieces are in rich tan saffiano leather called Biscuit.  I mean how cute is the name of that color?  Each piece is accented with light gold hardware that just perfectly accents the creamy leather.  The Avery Crossbody is the best bag to just throw on and go.  It will hold all of your essentials without weighing you down.

The Moto Hobo is the ultimate slouchy bag that can hold everything from your keys to your tablet.  I love that you have the option of the top handle and an adjustable leather strap.  This is a classic bag that you can use for years to come and will find yourself reaching for over and over.  You can’t go wrong with a simple zip wallet in this warm color.

Woodgrain Weekend

January 24, 2015

Diane von Furstenberg has spiced up some of our favorite silhouettes with her fabulous new print, Grain Shadow.  The McKinley Maxi showcases this fun and funky print in pink, blue, and citrus along with mesh panels and marbled colors.  It features a deep v neck and criss cross back that is easy to slip into.  The fluid silk fabric flows beautifully away from the body and is oh so comfortable.  You will never want to take this dress off once its on!  For Spring and Summer I can see this during the day with simple metallic sandals and a cute hat.  Then at night just swap out the sandals for a great pair of heels and some sparkly jewelry.  We are in love with the Livi earring by Dannijo.  The colorful ear jackets are so hot this season and make such a statement.  You can even pair the jacket with your favorite pair of stud earrings for a different look!

DVF has updated her classic wrap dress with the New Julian Two Mini in a playful shorter length.  The vibrant woodgrain printed silk jersey in pink just pops against any skin color and will brighten your day easily.  This is the perfect dress to pack for your next weekend getaway or night out on the town.  We added a Rebecca Minkoff’s Finn Clutch that can transition from day to night simply by removing the strap.

The Ireland Jumpsuit is a daring and unexpected look that would be great for your next cocktail party.  The gorgeous blue grain shadow print  is so chic with the dramatic keyhole neckline.  Dannijo’s Jovana earrings and Nellie Cuff add the right amount of edge to this sleek outfit.

The Gilmore Blouse is a must have in anyone’s closet.  The relaxed silhouette and electrifying chartreuse color will look great with any pant.  We paired this easy blouse with the Miles pant by Nell, a slouchy pajama style pant that you will want to live in!  Rebecca Minkoff’s Leo Clutch in Black Floral adds a little bit of funk to this sophisticated look.

Transitional Tribal

January 22, 2015

 

 

A comfortable dress that can easily transition from day to night is at the top of my must have list.  Nicole Miller has met all my needs with her Mercedes Dress made from stretch jersey.  I wore this dress last weekend while we were in Charleston for a day of meetings.  It was the perfect piece for the beautiful weather we had, and I didn’t even need to worry about wearing a coat since it has long sleeves.  The edgy black and white lumen print is not only flattering, but adds some spark to a classic color combination.  During the day I paired the dress with a super comfortable pair of over the knee boots.  I am loving the trend this year with these super tall boots and have been wearing them non-stop.  Fringe is everywhere this spring, from shoes to bags.  Rebecca Minkoff hit the trend perfectly with the Jemma Crossbody.  I absolutely love the fringe and grommet detailing on this bag and its a great size to carry your essentials without being weighed down.  The Miljas Hat by Malene Birger has become a go to of mine on days when I know I am going to be outside for awhile.  It instantly makes me feel more chic and polished.  For nighttime I simply switched out my boots for a pair of strappy heels and blue python printed clutch by DVF.  This dress will definitely be one you will want to wear a number of different ways because its so comfortable and chic!

Merry Morgan Taylor

December 19, 2014

 

I recently discovered the nail polish brand Morgan Taylor and if you haven’t checked them out yet, you will want to after seeing the amazing colors I tried.  A local salon, So-Lace here in Lake City, SC carries the nail polish and I couldn’t be more thrilled.  I am not one to buy polish offline without trying it in person first or seeing it on someone so its just perfect that they are down the street from me.  I narrowed down my favorites to six colors I think are perfect this Holiday season.  First I tried Royal Treatment, its a dark eggplant colored purple.  When I think of Winter I immediately picture dark and rich colors.  I think this color looks great with any black or grey outfit which tends to be my go to outfit these days.


IMG_0075

Magician’s Assistant is a great neutral color that will go with anything and look fabulous on anyone.  I love that its a light lavender grey with a subtle iridescent finish.   I have worn this color multiple times now its such a good everyday polish.  Trying to go out of the box I have been wanting to give a navy color a try.  Morgan Taylor’s Power Suit polish was the right one to test the waters with.  Its dark yes, but its wearable.  Also I think this would be great to do some designs on top of in a lighter color if you’re feeling adventurous.

Wonder Woman is the perfect Holiday red!  The metallic sheen adds a whole other dimension to your classic red nail polish.  Its so fun and festive I can’t wait to wear this one to my next Christmas party.  Sticking with the metallic theme Could Have Foiled Me is another fabulous festive polish for this season.  This would be just the polish for New Year’s Eve as well.  Both of these colors glide on so easily and stay put well.

I saved the best for last, Glitter & Gold is literally a party in a bottle!  The glitter polish is a little tricky to get on cleanly at first, but the end result is magnificent!!  You will certainly make a statement with these nails at your next event.  I would also love to use this over a classic red for a really festive touch.

Hope you enjoyed my Holiday nail polish picks and I can’t wait to test out more for the winter months!  You can purchase any of these colors at So-Lace Salon in Lake City, SC.  Call them at (843) 374-4247 or check out their Facebook page and Instagram.

Into the Wild

December 16, 2014

Take a walk on the wild side with the latest handbag collection from Sachin + Babi.  The exotic skin, leather, and pony hair combine to create the most luxurious bags you’ve ever seen.  They have elevated the everyday satchel with their Pleated Tote in a smooth tan leather and contrasting suede panels.  This is a great carry all for every day that is still super stylish.  The pleated detail on the bag and the suede panels add just the right amount of texture to a classic silhouette.  It comes with a detachable strap that is also adjustable so you can customize it to the perfect length.  The dark metal hardware pops against the neutral color of the leather and gives it some edge.  You can fill it with all your essentials and stay organized with the amount of pockets it has inside and out.

Our favorite of the collection would be the Twisted Pony Hair Clutch in Black.  The luxurious black pony hair makes quite the statement on a smaller bag.  I love the twisted detail on the front flap and the exterior pocket with the exposed zipper closure.  This roomy clutch can hold all you will need on a night out and it comes with a detachable strap that can transform it into a cool crossbody bag.

The python skin on the Bondage Clutch is the epitome of exotic.  This envelope style clutch features criss crossed leather detailing on the front and an exposed zipper pocket on the back.  It also can be transformed into a cross body bag with a detachable strap.  The neutral tone of this bag makes it the perfect accessory to any outfit.  I can see this quickly becoming a favorite in anyone’s closet.

Marvelous Metallic

December 6, 2014

Sachin + Babi have outdone themselves with their Margarete Metallic Ball Skirt for their Noir Holiday Collection this year.  This dramatic high low style is a signature of theirs and they continue to use it season after season.  Just wait till you see what they have in store for Spring 2015.  The bronze jacquard material is so luxurious and catches the light beautifully.  The texture also gives the skirt added dimension.  We are loving the flattering high waisted style that would look fabulous on a variety of ages and sizes.  For this post  we pair the skirt with something unexpected, a more casual Nicole Miller Feather Silk Tee.  We liked the combination of the textures and colors between the skirt and top.  Also, we love pairing something more casual with a more dressy piece for an out of the box outfit.  By Malene Birger’s gold snakeskin clutch was a perfect match for this outfit.  A lovely pair of Meghna earrings and a stack of Eddie Borgo bracelets added the right amount of glitz to this glamours look.  Our favorite Schutz heels and a great pair of Karen Walker sunglasses complete this outfit.

Casual & Cool

December 4, 2014

This outfit just exudes cool girl to me.  This Joel blouse by BCBG has a very feminine silhouette with the ruffle detailing on the front, but the jeans and sneakers give it some edge.  We are big fans of J Brand jeans and we can’t get enough of the Luxe Sateen skinnies.  Like literally…we wear them everyday.  They come in a variety of colors seasonally, and look great with just about anything.  Another great thing about this blouse is that it can be easily dressed up with a Dannijo Imogen necklace.  The leather Seta sneaker by Rebecca Minkoff has cool girl written all over them.  The studs and zipper details take them to next level.  We finished off the look with a bright red lip and a great Rebecca Minkoff Love Crossbody bag.  Gray is definitely the it color this season and we are certainly loving it!
