Stars and Stripes

Summer is here and America’s Birthday is quickly approaching!  I always believe in dressing up for the occasion and the 4th of July is no exception.  This Thursday I encourage everyone to break out all of their red, white and blue gear and mix and match to your delight!  Fingers crossed the rain decides to take a break long enough for the sun to shine through leaving us with a clear night sky for optimal fireworks viewing.  While my plans are still TBD because the April showers have decided to last until mid summer, one thing I do know is that festive garb is a must for the day.

Brocade with love

This week is all about love and as I said before, I am in love with brocade! I love brocade’s incredible ornate detailing, the audacious color combinations, and unique fabrics.  Brocade is like elaborately decorated armor that helps you dazzle your way through the day and when it comes to brocade the bolder the better, which makes me love it even more! I love mixing prints and highly recommend this with brocade, but if you are feeling a little timid pair brocade with a neutral color and of course, always mix textures!

Brocade with love

This Valentine’s Day (like all other Valentine’s Days) I will be rocking the red.  As I’m sure you have noticed by now, I love getting dressed up for special occasions (and really everything in between) and Valentine’s Day is no exception.  This V-day I am rocking a long sleeve fitted brocade dress in red and black.  Brocade is one of my favorite trends and is so incredible, 1) because it has the ability to give the illusion of the perfect figure and 2) because the workmanship is so intricate and delicate there is no way not to fall in love.  So this Valentine’s Day embrace the red and throw on a dress that makes you feel unstoppable and take the day by storm.

Best Dressed of the Golden Globes Red Carpet

Finally, awards season has arrived! Between the red carpet and the big show, it’s definitely a toss up for what I enjoy most.  This season these A-listers brought their A-game, delivering high glitz and drama on the red carpet, with high slits, red, black, sequins and cleavage stealing the show.

Red, White & Blue

Happy 4th of July!! The 4th of July is a wonderful day of celebration, normally spent by the pool or at the beach with a cool drink in hand and red, white & blue covering every surface possible.  The 4th can be a slightly scary day for fashion, with looks veering more towards costume than stylish.  Fear not though…there is a way embrace our patriotic colors and still look fabulous and impeccably put together.  I hope everyone has an amazing 4th of July, enjoys the fireworks, and embraces red, white & blue in the most fashionable way possible!

I am absolutely obsessed with these leggings and overall hipster grunge look!
