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.

Neon Nanette

November 8, 2014

I always get excited when a box arrives from Nanette Lepore! I have always loved her line and her prints are some of my favorite out there. She also does an amazing job mixing classic touches with trendy ones, therefore, her clothes work for a variety of ages and body types. This Opalescent tee is no exception! She took a recent trend, the cropped top, and made it wearable for any woman! We paired it with a BCBG fitted skirt, Rebecca Minkoff heels and bag, and Eddie Borgo bracelets.

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.

Trend Alert: Psychedelic Prints

October 9, 2014

 

One of our favorite trends this season is the trippy prints that were seen all over the runways for Fall 2014.  Bold and bright retro 60’s and 70’s psychedelic prints are everywhere and are actually very easy to wear.  Stick to choosing one piece that will be the statement so that your look doesn’t get too busy.  A statement printed blouse like the Crystal 2 Top by Trina Turk is a great way to dip your toes into this trend.  The bold orange and fuchsia in such a fun mixed geometric print make this blouse really stand out.  The blouse looks more relaxed by tying it in the front and rolling up the sleeves.  We kept with the retro vibe and paired the top with a flared jean in gray by J Brand and some suede heels.  A bright red pair of Kendra Scott studs finish this look by adding another pop of color.  You can also wear this blouse to the office with a great pencil skirt and blazer, just let the blouse be the standout piece.  A classic clutch by Rebecca Minkoff in Latte is a neutral handbag that will go with anything!

Who says you can’t wear neon in the Fall? The Mara Hoffman Tee Shift Dress is electrifying in neon blue, purple and green with a camel print that looks as if its made of neon lights.  Gray boots by Malene Birger and a Rebecca Minkoff Quilted Bag in Neon Violet are the perfect accents.  M. Patmos makes a beautiful fur snood that will instantly make you feel glamorous!

You will turn heads when you walk into the room wearing the Nanette Lepore Handloom Shift Dress.  The magnificent print in pink and teal match perfectly with this amazing bib necklace by Megan Park.  This look is minimal, but will certainly be one everyone will remember.  This is a dress that you can style so many different ways and wear to so many different events.  Throw on a pair of boots and a vest for a cute, day look or wear it with a blazer for the office.

Live-In Leather

October 6, 2014

This wonderful chill in the air means one thing, its leather weather.   A fabulous leather moto jacket is a closet staple for just about everyone and slowly, but surely another leather piece has been gaining popularity among wardrobes.  Leather pants, or leggings have become the new cold weather staple because they are so versatile.  They are an investment piece for sure, but you will get just as much wear out of them as you do your favorite leather jacket.  A simple, slim fitting style is the easiest to wear in either a black or brown color.  Make sure they fit properly because leather will stretch over time so you want them to be snug, but you don’t need to go down a size.  The quality of the leather will determine the durability of the piece so you want to make sure you spend your money on a high quality pair that will last a long time.  Don’t forget you need to find a professional cleaner that specializes in leather so you can extend the life of your pants.

You can style your leather leggings with just about anything like you would a pair of jeans or leggings.  I’ve got four looks to show you to give you some ideas that will show you how truly versatile these amazing By Malene Birger Leather Leggings look with just about any top.  For the first outfit we kept things simple and neutral by pairing the leggings with a casual By Malene Birger turtleneck, Rebecca Minkoff booties, and a Trina Turk crossbody.  We even added another touch of leather with these fun Megan Park earrings.  This outfit is a great go to look for busy days or traveling.  You can even add a sweater or blazer for an extra layer on colder days.

Here’s a great look that rocks two of Fall’s biggest trends, leather and fur!  This extraordinary fur vest by Elizabeth and James was meant to be paired with the leather pants.  A simple long sleeved shirt by Elliot Lauren was the perfect backdrop for the vest and the length is perfect for leggings.  This boho-chic look is another great outfit for the day to meet friends for lunch in or go shopping.  The Rebecca Minkoff Quilted Affair bag is the perfect size to carry all your necessities in and still be lightweight.  The strap is adjustable so you can wear it like a cross body or on your shoulder.  I used the Alex booties by Rebecca Minkoff again to keep with the earthy tones of this outfit.

Leather leggings can also be work appropriate with the right blouse and shoes.  I paired a Nanette Lepore textured cream blouse with a longer hemline and a fabulous pair of suede Schutz heels to dress up the pants.  This tribal printed vest by Nell is the perfect addition to this outfit to give it some structure and more texture.  The colors combine so nicely and really makes me feel like its Fall.  A slouchy leather bag like this one by Raoul is perfect for work and running to meetings.

The last look I want to share with you is the ultimate chic and comfortable outfit.  A cashmere poncho, like this one by Allude, with the leather leggings is the absolute perfect match.  Its such a simple look but you will standout among a crowd.  I accented the sweater with a gold and leather necklace by Megan Park, Rebecca Minkoff booties, and an amazing python clutch by Malene Birger.  You could wear this anywhere and to anything.  Just swap the boots out for heels for the night and you are good to go!

Don’t forget to find a professional cleaner that specializes in leather for a pair like this.  You can extend the life of them by having them cleaning properly and get your money out of this investment piece!  Can’t wait to show you more ways to style leather pants this season!

Pretty in Pink & Gray

September 30, 2014

 

The color gray is everywhere this Fall and I am loving it, especially paired with this light, pastel pink.  Pastels are huge for the Fall, which means you can get more wear out of your blouses from the Spring.  Don’t you just love when you can transition pieces from one season to the next? I sure do!  Rebecca Minkoff certainly nailed this color combination this season with her amazing jackets!  First let me talk about her fabulous Ryan bomber jacket that is sporty and feminine at the same time.   The tweed jacket has herringbone printed sleeves and pink accents on the collar, cuffs, and hem.  You can throw this on with pretty much anything.  I love pairing it with a sleek BCBGMaxazria pencil skirt and Zoa blouse to edge up your typical office wear.  Sticking with the this vibe I added some edgy accessories like these Megan Park Floret earrings and BCBGMaxazria Minna metal clutch.

The Wes Moto Jacket is a flirty new take on your basic leather jacket with perforated blush colored leather.  This soft color makes this piece more wearable by toning down the biker vibe.  If you’re looking to invest in a leather jacket, this would be the piece for you.  It is one that you could wear all year round, even in the summer since the color is so light.  For Fall I decided to style this jacket with a simple french terry knit dress by Trina Turk.  The form fitting dress is the perfect backdrop for this amazing jacket, Schutz heels, and Nanette Lepore bag.

Rebecca Minkoff nailed the definition of ladylike with the Finley coat.  The light gray fabric mixed with accents of soft pink on the back, under the collar, and the lining make this coat look sophisticated and polished.   A simple front zipper closure and two pockets blend nicely into the structured silhouette.  I continued the gray theme by adding knee-high gray heeled boots by Malene Birger.  This minimalist look is equal parts subtle and striking.
