shades of gold.......we're loving rose........

all things fashion seem to go in,out, and back in again....
but the metals are always 'in'....
the idea of in or out has always bugged me. if you love it wear it. if it makes you  happy wear it..... i could care less if it's not the trend of the season.
however, i am a believer in metallics. they make any look better. it's true.
so don't tell me you can't wear it or you don't know how to wear it.
just wear it!
gold & silver shoes are so fun and i love them most with casual looks like above and below.
i have now become obsessed with rose gold and it started with these freda salvador ace booties
i have already started wearing these with everything i own....boyfriend jeans, skinnies, leather & dresses for a romantic vibe....
shades of gold are always pretty and elevate every look. if you can't commit to shoes then look at accessories.
this beautiful brushed rose gold and diamond band from sethi couture is available at the elliott yeary gallery in aspen....aka heaven.
it is gorgeous & hey, valentines is coming here's the 'rose' you want.
i also love these rose gold plated 1.5" hoops available on from karen london and at $56 why not?
or this cross between a cuff and a bangle from siwa bakim  or half moon pendant
a few items to consider adding to your life of rose gold
mommie dearest be damned these 'wire hangers' are amazing!
my guess is you already have this or the iphone
and, again.... think about rose gold for beauty......
this eye shadow is so good i have to try it... charlotte tilbury's vintage vamp luxury palette is beautiful. 
and this rose gold mirrored manicure is everything!
the point....try it! it's actually so easy and works with any and everything.

cashmere for date night....

who doesn't love a girl in faded denim and cashmere?
i am a fan because i think nothing is sexier than being sexy without trying...
a little skin and soft to the touch denim and super soft cashmere...
perfectly sexy
perfectly pretty
perfectly easy
i never like the saying 'business in the front party in the back'
however, i do love the back and feel it's a sexy part of a woman's body.
i tend to design a lot of sweaters that are seemingly classic in the front and then a lil something that surprises. mostly, because i tend to go out straight from work so i need my clothes to work for me day to night.
the emerson u back cashmere tank does that...
throw on some playful necklaces (best if one that can fall to the back) and you are ready to go....
easy and sexy...wait those shouldn't go together
easy and cool

a souchi must MUST

so here's the thing:
some things are just great with everything: salt, t-shirt, hoop earrings, cocktail ring, jeans...
well, the new addition to that list is the souchi fringe poncho. clearly, i'm bias and lacking some modesty here....BUT it's a proven fashion fact .
i love wearing it around the house to keep me warm while knitting...
in the mornings when checking instagram and cnn (yes, both are very informative! shout out to carol costello)
when really so annoyed by another trump tweet that i have to just scream
when i don't like any of my jackets or cardi's over a simple tank dress... it gives a relaxed yet sophisticated look....who doesn't want a lil boho vibe
when i want to show the new arm jewelry i am wearing.... a lil skin is always good
hook cuff & omega
when i am trying to decide to go out or stay in...bag on table and ready... but taxi driver is on and i'm still agitated about january 20.
what the hell.....go out...i'm dressed, have a cool necklace, cozy and ready for a cocktail.
see the fringe poncho gets you thru your day.
now what color......

the ULTIMATE'sweater'.....

whatever you call's your ultimate go to piece...
spring, summer, fall, winter....
doesn't matter.
call it a top, sweater or tee we don't care....just call it sexy.
the enza costa cashmere cuffed tops are perfection. they come in crew, v-neck and turtleneck. the rib lower half of the sleeve has a thumbhole for cool factor.
we love how thin (yet warm) the fabric is 85% cotton 15% cashmere
so you can tuck it in or wear long with leggings.
did we mention you can wash it and dry it and nothing happens? it's the perfect staple to anyones wardrobe. 
so what are you waiting for..... shop now or add another to your collection.
i have a drawer full and, yet, i still grab each color that comes out.
these are on constant rotation.
don't get me started on the dresses and tanks in the same fabric.....that's for another time...
meanwhile, check out all of enza costa's collection....all of it gets worn over and over  and over.... promise.

new years day style........

after a long night out saying goodbye to the year with friends, family and loves it's time to relax.
i say, sleep in, breakfast in bed then a day on the couch with movies and home baked cookies.
wearing your pajama shirt, cashmere bandeau and cashmere boy shorts. if you've got bad hair....late night....through on a cashmere head scarf.
have fun
here's to an amazing 2017

holiday wish list......2016

yet again, i find myself wondering how another year has gone by. the elections seem to have offered two vastly different views. no matter where you stand i think it's important to acknowledge the vast differences and individually work towards creating the world we want to live in. instead of focusing on the divides lets figure out some similarities and start from there. after all it is one world and we all have to share it.

so in a ridiculously silly way i am starting with the fact that we ALL enjoy receiving gifts and hopefully we all enjoying giving them too. so here's my holiday 2016 wish list of luxe and attainable gifts for the holiday season.

may you all be safe, happy, dedicated to a cause & open something amazing this holiday season.

happy holidays

belt it...............

I love WHEN one item can transform a look.
the belt makes this look. add to that the clever way she tied it over one half of the bomber. i have never really been someone to wear belts but i love them on others and i love buying them for the store.
so i decided to find some inspiration on cool belts that change and elevate a look. 
a rope belt adds a casual feel to an all black look.
a skinny double wrap belt turns a pretty lace dress and blazer into a cool look
a wider belt sitting on the waist add the perfect balance between retro and modern.
here are some of our fave belts available on
lizzie fortunato rope belt
de palma mon senor 
de palma strade wrap belt
enjoy and experiment with something new.

.......making your clothes work hard for you.............

now that's a philosophy i can get behind.....
i was reading the 'art of style' section of porter magazine and loved the story on jane birkin 'the woman behind the season' and felt a kinship.
yes, everyone who loves fashion most likely has been inspired by this iconic french woman. i always found it interesting that the 'birkin bag' was so structured and classic while the woman it was named after was irreverent and not classic. however, i guess her style has become classic to hip girls everywhere.
denim, tees, cool shoes, mini's and great accessories.
but, what i loved & connected to most was what she said...
'there's no fun in a bag if it's not kicked around...'
i have always felt that way about 'things'. no matter how much i love something, covet it, or save to own it....once i have's mine. and, it is no longer precious. i want to live in the things i buy...i want them to go along with me on my journey. i don't care if they get scratched, scarred or beat's part of the journey.

i remember when i first went overseas my mom bought me a leather backpack. i was obsessed and wanted one so badly. after about 2 hours of sitting at LAX my friend spilled her coke all over my new bag. there was that split second of 'OMG' but then i thought this is the first of many stories this backpack will tell... i couldn't wait for it to be 50 years old. it's almost 29 now....

i love this straw basket purse that she continually used. can you imagine where this basket traveled?

i loved that most think of a straw basket as a summer bag.... not jane...

it was season-less and i love that!

straw with fur and a bakery box....well how does one pull that off? confidence and loving the piece so much you can't NOT wear it. love that even more.


the lesson:

wear your 'things' and let them live & travel with you....we all have many stories to tell
