A.L.C.

March 28, 2015

Let’s take a moment and talk about one of our new lines at Mosaic, A.L.C.  The Andrea Lieberman Collection has set the standard on cool season after season since its debut in 2009.  Stylist turned designer, Andrea Lieberman made a name for herself dressing Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Hudson, Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, Gwen Stefani and Jennifer Lopez.  (Yes, she was responsible for that iconic green Versace gown that JLo wore to the Grammys’ in 2009.)  Her collection is filled with refined essentials that are classic and wearable.  You will find sophisticated and luxurious pieces with a casual vibe that can be worn a number of ways.  Pieces from her collection will certainly be classics in your wardrobe that you will reach for for years to come.

The Nora dress by A.L.C. takes a sophisticated silhouette and makes it fun with a bold, floral pattern.  The subtle flare of the sleeve and skirt elongate your limbs and make you appear thin and tall.  The luxurious silk fabric flows away from the body so nicely and the vibrant floral pattern makes this a statement dress.  We added some Eddie Borgo bracelets to give it some edge and our favorite Rebecca Minkoff Raz heels in Black.

A girl can never go wrong with a simple black and white striped dress.   Andrea has updated the classic striped dress we all know and love with her Fain dress.  The paneled construction and mismatched stripes create a visually slimming effect.  I love how the fluttering asymmetrical hemline adds some femininity to this structured dress.  We added a brass tasseled vintage necklace, black gladiator sandals and a fun marble printed crossbody by Rebecca Minkoff to make the look a little more funky.  I can see myself wearing this on a weekend away exploring a new city or visiting with friends.  This little number will keep you cool and comfortable as the temperatures rise this Summer.

Last, but not least I want to show you this knockout piece, the Cini Dress in Bubblegum and Sunset.  This flirty little dress features criss cross straps in the back and a flared skirt.  The vivid colors of the fabric make this a piece that will turn heads when you walk into the room.  Nude heels are the perfect accessory for this bright dress.  Dannijo’s new spring pieces arrived just in time for this look.  I love how the blue accents in Gemma bib and Andy cuff pop against the pink in the dress.  The silver Navi earrings are the perfect statement earring for day or evening.  We love to mix colors and patterns so we paired Rebecca Minkoff’s Leo Clutch in Watercolor Multi with this look.

Gray, Fuchsia, and Orange

October 8, 2014

 

Several days ago, we posted about the amazing Trina Turk Frea pant. It features a beautiful Fall floral that has the most perfect color combination of gray, fuchsia, and orange! I started really thinking about this color palette and how drawn to it I was. When it comes to my house, I tend to sway towards a more neutral palette. However, I love to bring color in with my rugs. I realized after writing the blog, that my favorite rug in my house has this color combination!! I immediately jumped on Pinterest to see what interiors I could find that featured this vivid yet amazing color combo. I was blown away at the creative and unique ways people had incorporated these colors into their homes. Here a just a small selection of the ones I found that I love.

Some of the rooms featured a clean crisp background with pops of orange and fuchsia while others decked the rooms out head to toe in these bright colors. I loved them all! Anyone that knows me well, knows that I have a bit of a pillow problem. My husband claims I am a “pillow addict”, and I can’t really disagree! I love pillows and think they are a great way to bring in color without over doing it!

If you are skeptical or using bright colors in your home, another great way besides pillows is a great rug or an accent wall covered in awesome wallpaper. I absolutely love a great turkish rug and think they can do wonders for brightening up a room. If you live in South Carolina or close by, there is an amazing place called Scarlett’s that has beautiful antiques and an unbelievable rug room. That’s right, I said ROOM! I have found some really cool turkish rugs for my house there and for great prices!

I also stumbled across some gorgeous table settings using these colors. Tell me you wouldn’t want to sit and stay a while at this table!!
