Everyday Boho

December 3, 2014

One of my favorite designer’s we carry here at Mosaic is Nanette Lepore.  Her blouses are by far some of my most cherished pieces in my closet.  The Wild Coast top is no exception, the beautiful silk patterned fabric just flows so nicely.  I paired this blouse with my black luxe sateen J Brands, I have literally been wearing these non-stop this season.  They are the most comfortable pants you will ever own by far.  Plus the black looks fabulous with just about anything.  I have worn these pants and my Alex booties by Rebecca Minkoff so much already, they are a great combination.  This is such an easy outfit, especially for work I can look put together and still be comfortable.  The Miljas hat by Malene Birger and these amazing sunglasses by Karen Walker keep the sun at bay while I am out running errands.  The Finn clutch by Rebecca Minkoff can also double as a cross body bag.  I adore the fringe detailing and the size is absolutely perfect to hold the essentials.  It doesn’t weigh me down while I am out and about.  This is definitely an outfit I will be repeating quite a bit this season.

Poised Primarys

December 2, 2014

When we saw this Issa Colorblock Turtleneck we knew it was a unique piece.  The abstract strokes of color on the sweater transform a basic black turtleneck into a one of a kind item.  You can wear this sweater a number of ways from jeans to leggings.  We decided to do something different and pair it with a pleated maxi skirt by Malene Birger for a totally unexpected look.  I love how the turtleneck balances the sheerness of the skirt.  This skirt is a great closet staple that you can wear all year round with just about anything.  You can dress it down with a t-shirt or keep it dressy with a silk blouse.   This would be a great outfit for a party or dinner this winter season.  Some sparkling jewelry always helps to finish the look.  We love to stack our Eddie Borgo bracelets as high as we can!  They make great gifts for any classy lady or just for yourself.

Cool in Coco

November 22, 2014

Look no further for a marvelous dress to wear this Holiday season, we have found the one!  The Coco Maxi by Diane Von Furstenberg in a blue python print is absolutely amazing!  No one will be able to look away when you walk into the room in this dress.  It is crafted from luxurious silk jersey and features a one shoulder silhouette with a faux wrap skirt.  This dress was created excuslively for the 40th anniversary of Diane’s iconic wrap dress.  With a self-tie waist and a high slit detail this is truly a show stopper of a dress.  We layered some sparkling Dannijo chokers along with a dazzling pair of earrings for this evening look.  Eddie Borgo cone bracelets in silver accented the dress and other jewelry perfectly.  These bracelets are ones you will reach for everyday regardless of the occasion.  We honestly can’t get enough of them, they look great with everything!  Lastly, we put on some strappy heels to finish the look.  Not only will you look fabulous in this maxi, but you will feel it too!  It is so comfortable you won’t want to take it off at the end of the night.

Saffron Sun

November 13, 2014

 

I fell in love with this Brooke blouse by Rachel Zoe the moment I spotted it on the rack.  The delicious golden color and flowing sihlouette are incredible.  Peplums are one of my favorite styles and are so feminine.  This is a classic blouse with a twist that you can wear a number of ways.  I styled it with a lacquered pair of JBrand skinny jeans in a rich blackberry color.  The rich jewel tones are so on trend this Fall and I am obsessed with all of them.  This outfit is great for a date night with your special someone and will certainly catch their eye.  The sparkling Eddie Borgo Estate bracelets in a Champagne and Citrus color compliment the blouse well.  I layered in one of his signature Cone Bracelets in Rose Gold as well.  You can never go wrong with adding a Dannijo necklace to any outfit and the Whistler Necklace really makes this outfit glamourous.  No need to lug your massive handbag while you’re out with your beau, the Ariana glass clutch by BCBG holds all of the essentials without the bulk.  Finally, a great pair of black heels and some fabulous lipstick ties the whole look together.

Bold & Bright

November 6, 2014

Colder weather doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice color this season!  One of my favorite trends this season is brightly colored bags that spice up any outfit.  Rebecca Minkoff, hands down has some of the best and most affordable leather handbags around.  She has so many styles and colors to choose from so you can get one that fits your personality.  The Leo Clutch in Ultraviolet is a fabulous little bag to take with you on a date or to a party.  It will hold your essentials without weighing you down.  I love the zipper detailing along the edges of the envelope shaped bag.  This would be a great gift for the upcoming Holiday season and it comes in so many colors!

The Bowery Crossbody in this bright blue color has got to be one of the most beautiful bags I have seen this season.  The contrasting black hardware gives the bag some serious edge and it is the perfect size to just throw on and go.

A pop of Hot Orange is just what you need to warm up any outfit this winter.  The Mini Quilted Affair bag is such a classic bag and the brilliant color gives it a twist.  The adjustable chain strap allows you to wear it as a crossbody or on your shoulder at different lengths.  This little bag would make another amazing gift for someone special this Christmas.  Keep checking our blog for more perfect gift ideas this season!

New Designer Preview – Matison Stone

October 24, 2014

We just couldn’t wait to share with you some of the pieces from a new line we will be carrying at Mosaic this Spring called, Matison Stone.  Its best described as boho-chic and the collection is full of beautifully printed silk blouses and dresses.  If you are a fan of Tolani then this is a line you will certainly love!  The silhouettes are whimsical yet practical and the pieces are easy to wear for any age.  Here is a sneak peak of some of our favorite pieces from the Spring 2015 Collection and they will be available starting February 2015.

The Liza Kimono is such a statement piece and can be worn so many different ways.  Its perfect for transitioning into Spring and Summer with sleeveless dresses and tops.  You could wear this with pretty much anything in your closet!  While its still cold I think it looks fabulous paired with a long sleeved solid top underneath and some dark skinny jeans for a night out with friends.  When the weather warms up you can throw this on over a fitted dress for an extra layer.  The rich colors and luxurious silk make this kimono a piece you will want to wear again and again.

The Nicki Dress is the perfect boho tunic dress especially if you find that most like this are often too short for you.  I love the versatility of this dress!  You can dress this up with a pair of heels and jewels or keep it casual with flats or sandals.

Our favorite piece in the collection has to be the Jared Tunic in this beautiful and brightly colored design.  Honestly I think the blouse speaks for itself with the bold pattern and gorgeous silk fabric.  You won’t want to take this top off the minute you put it on!  It can be worn with anything from jeans to shorts and will definitely add some spice to your wardrobe.

We are all about a great maxi especially for the Spring and the Freya Maxi does not disappoint!  The amazing print and light blue background is something we haven’t seen before and the silhouette is so simple and flattering.  The dress is easy to wear with side slits, hidden pockets, and bra friendly straps.  You can easily wear this dress while running errands or at a summer wedding with just a change of shoes and accessories.

Blue Beauty

October 21, 2014

As soon as this dress arrived in the store I knew I had to try it on, the color and shape are spectacular!  Cobalt blue is such a huge color this season and what better way to showcase it than with an amazing cocktail dress?  Nanette Lepore does not disappoint with her a-line Festival Dress.  The criss cross detailing on the back makes this dress appealing from all sides.  A structured silhouette and full skirt makes this dress ultra flattering.  The fitted bodice shrinks your waist right before your eyes.  Luxe, ribbed fabric gives the dress added texture and structure and is so comfortable.  This dress also has side slant pockets perfect for holding the essentials for a night out.  A jewel encrusted clutch by BCBG can hold anything else I might need and the handle can take the place of a cocktail ring.  The Raz heel by Rebecca Minkoff is my favorite heel this season so far and I am wearing it with everything I can.  It is so comfortable and adds a edgy touch to such a feminine dress.  I accessorized this fabulous dress with sparkling jewels by Dannijo.  The dangling Ariel Earrings were perfect with my hair pulled back and I chose to layer two chokers together, the Aspen on top of the Whistler to really make a statement.  Their jewelry is a no brainer, you can wear it for a cocktail party or just every day with a t-shirt and jeans.  The pieces are so stunning and easy to wear, you will reach for them for years to come.

Hot Pink Pizzazz

October 18, 2014

 

It’s hard to believe that the Holiday shipments are already starting to arrive.  There’s something about the glitz and sparkle that gets me excited for the Holiday season.  Hunter Bell always has a stellar Holiday collection and this outfit is a testament to that.  The Rena skirt by Hunter Bell is a classic midi length that she carries from season to season.  It has a silhouette that is flattering on just about everyone and not to mention the fabulous Hot Pink color!  I mean what girl doesn’t love to wear hot pink?  The black leather trimmed waist gives the skirt some edge.  This is a great piece to add to your wardrobe especially if you’re not ready to commit to a full leather skirt.  A sequined crop top is the perfect compliment to this midi skirt.  I love how the short top balances the longer length of the skirt.  The Mimi top by Hunter Bell  has a mixture of different sized sequins that are shiny and matte.  These Rebecca Minkoff Raz Heels are the must have heel for this season!  The black leather and suede shoe has the right balance between classic and edgy.  If you haven’t tried Rebecca Minkoff shoes yet you are missing out!  These are the most comfortable heels you will ever own and will be able to dance the night away at any holiday party you have this winter!  To finish the look I added a sparkly pair of Dannijo earrings and a Raoul clutch in black pony hair and leather.  Every eye will be on you when you walk in to the room wearing this look and you will want to wear this again and again.
