All this ensemble needs is your little Jil Sander black jacket and you are good to go. I always like it when I find City DKNY and this blue top with the velvet trim at bottom is shi shi. On the bottom of this City DKNY top there are pull tags that allow you to tighten or loosen the waistband, it’s those little touches that make Donna Karen so shi shi. Speaking of glam I found this Trina Turk striped skirt that looks fantastic with the City DKNY top. These Elizabeth and James booties add tha
This 2 piece dress suit by Nantette Lepore is so damn cute. I love the chocolate brown with a pink trim color palette here…LOVE that color combination and it is everything you would expect from Nanette Lepore. Nanette Lepore was born in Ohio and is a very well known fashion designer based in NYC. New York Magazine has said that she is “known for her feminine STYLE and fine detailing, Nanette Lepore makes ultra-chic clothes that are the same time easy to wear.” That just about sums it all up
Yes I love it when I find Nanette Lepore and Trina Turk but what I really love is finding a vintage piece by Philippe Adec such as this jacket…. At one point Philippe Adec was sold in Neiman Marcus but those days are gone so when I find a Adec jacket that was made in France I get excited. Please don’t get me wrong I love Nanette Lepore and Trina Turk, these 2 great American designers are STYLISH and progressive all within one scoop. Just check out the detail work on the black knit top by Lepo
I just have one thing to say and that is thank you CJ for donating your lovely Moschino blouse so that I may gobble it up and blog about it… That was very generous of you and I appreciate that kind of giving… giving for the selfless act that is until I come pillaging…Love this cream blouse by Moschino, it’s very STYLISH and high glam and will never go out of being in vogue. I found this lovely brand new Cynthia Steffe skirt that has shades of cream in the skirt pattern so it’s a no-brainer to
Putting this ensemble together was like going to a Cirque du Soleil performance – exhilarating. How lucky was I that I not only found 1 Jil Sander item but 2? Love Jil Sander, always have – always will… this brand is just like Piazza Sempione to me, it only gets better with age. The black linen Jil Sander top is gorgeous and timeless and the Jil Sander khaki skirt is gorgeous and timeless, in other words you can’t fail by having Jil Sander in your closet. If that excitement didn’t do me i
I found this incredibly gorgeous wrap cotton blouse by Neiman Marcus made with handkerchief fabric so it’s soft to the 10th degree. It ties in the back, click on the photo to see the backside of the blouse, and this top is elegant chic. Wear this top with anything and you’ll be the ‘star’. I know both of these slacks are a bit on the ‘spring / summer’ side of life but when the universe opens its loving arms to you and gives you slacks by Womyn & Ferragamo you just have to accept your fate and
Its interesting how things happen in life…. I had found this gorgeous silver baby doll cut Micheal Kors jacket and gushed over the color with my new friend HollyBeth who just happens to be 1 of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. Yes I use her products and LOVE them because first of all they are organic and secondly they work! She took me out for homemade hot cocoa and she mentioned that she was going to go get some silver ribbon for some packages and I said “silver ribbon is STYLISH”. So s
I love this black dress by Mason so much not just because it reminds me of what Mrs Roper wore on Three’s Company..know what I’m saying…. Somethings are just priceless and this dress is one of them…. It also reminds me of something Diana Ross would have worn in the early 80′s while out at Studio 54…. Michelle Mason was born in Korea and graduated from California State University and trained under Richard Tyler. Creating silhouettes, which are more youthful and progressive, yet maintaining the
I always get excited when I find a brand for the first time, it’s like going on a blind date with that racing heartbeat… I found this brand new Gabriele Strehle white camisole originally it was from Bloomingdale’s and then it trickled down to Marshalls. The original price tag from Bloomingdale’s was $395… I love how you are able to see this item that originated out of Bloomingdale’s then had a layover at Marshalls and then the final destination, your local thrift store! The work of Gabriele
This posting is about how 3 different skirts by 3 different designers can look so STYLISH with 1 Michael Stars t-shirt. Nanette Lepore, Theory & Cynthia Steffe designed each one of these skirts and each one has a unique cut and fit. The Nantette Lepore skirt with flower appliques and sequins is hip and chic. The Theory skirt is streamline and minimal which always works ,think Jil Sander, and then the Cynthia Steffe with pink flowers and velvet trim work is just so Cynthia Steffe beautiful.
Finding Robert Graham is like biting into that Godiva and not knowing or caring whats inside… Its all yummy. I love this white eyelet fabric Robert Graham button up blouse and all the detailing, but then again the detailing is what sets a Robert Graham shirt apart from others. It’s all about the attention to details and with every Graham the interior lining on the collar and cuffs are different patterns which takes an ordinary shirt / blouse and makes it extraordinary. Since 2001, Robert Gra
Is there such a thing as overindulging one’s self?? I sure hope not because if we can’t indulge ourselves here and there then why get out of bed??? With this blog posting I will indulge my clients in chic luxury with this DVF top and silk Akris skirt. Each time I find a DVF I can’t help but wonder how it got there and who gave up a DVF??? I know women that have their original DVF wrap dress from the 70′s and cherish it even more today so how a DVF item lands in the clutches of a thrift stor
I have never found anything by Dina Bar-El until now and I think the wait was so worth it. This long gray knit wool dress by Dina Bar-El hugs the body like an Hermes glove. Dina founded her first design company in 1974. As a former model, Dina makes it her business to know her customer and understand the sexy curves of a women’s body. Dina Bar-El dresses continue to grace the red carpet on numerous celebrities. She began designing t-shirts from her living room, forming an enterprise that q
WOW this posting has an all star punch and I like my punch… This retro influenced Nicole Miller dress is so sassy it’s priceless. Love Nicole Miller and everything she touches and this dress is something I could see Goldie Hawn wear. Love the color combination and pattern, to me this dress has that 1-2 punch. Next dress is by Ella Moss and it’s so soft, like all her clothes, I have to stop brushing my face up against the fabric…. Pamella Protzel Scott is hip, quirky and yes fashionable and i
I don’t even know where to begin with this entry because I love both of these brands so much it’s crazy…Nanette Lepore and Byblos, its just way to much for me to handle in one entry but being the trooper that I am I’ll give it a whirl… This gorgeous Nanette Lepore jacket with it’s glen plaid pattern is sleek beyond all comprehension. In every Nanette Lepore piece there is always a touch of wit and in my opinion that’s what makes her a brilliant fashion designer. When the GODS above gave me t
Each time I find Jil Sander I swear I hear bells ring and my hearing is just fine… Ok before I cut to the chase I’ll tell you about the black top by Susana Monaco not only is it practical on all counts but well designed too. Leave it to Susana Monaco to construct clothes that are comfortable and STYLISH. Now it’s time for the Jil Sander jacket throw down…. German born designer Jil Sander launched her first womenswear collection in 1973, opening up her first Hamburg based store at just 24 ye
If there is 1 thing I love more than finding a new item in a thrift store e.g. Cynthia Steffe black top, it’s a vintage couture Givenchy skirt. I wouldn’t kick either of them to the curb especially anything vintage Givenchy but lets talk about the top…This is a simple black knit Cynthia Steffe top can be worn with a camisole, tank or tube top…love the diversity. Now for the fun lets talk about the vintage Givenchy wool skirt.. Riccardo Tisci’s Givenchy is hot. So hot, few can resist his go
These 2 St John tops are obviously from the same owner because they are the same size and both had been lovely taken care of, and who knows maybe Kate Winslet donated them and it was just my lucky day… I’m not kidding when I tell you this but both tops were side by side and when I plucked the first one out from the rack I smiled and when I plucked the second one out I threw my hands up and say thank you… Pink and black are both classic and timeless colors that when added to your wardrobe only
This ensemble was meant to be put together in 60 seconds so you can be out the door inSTYLE in under a minute. This super sleek top by Michael Stars is sobeautiful because all you do is slip it over and go and it looks chic…. Michael Starsis a brilliant designer in my opinion because he designs tees that aresophisticated and yet timeless so if you don’t already own his tees whatin the world are you waiting for??? These slacks are done by Italy’sfinest fashion house Piazza Sempione….LOVE this
This posting is about 3 American designers that have all cranked up the WOW factor…. My first wow dress is by Michael Kors, its gray with white trim, silk & sleeveless and makes you smile when you see it. I have no idea what is left for me or anyone to say about the talented Kors except that thank goodness American has this shiny example of good taste. The 2nd wow dress is by Ralph Lauren and yes I have a weakness for paisley… Paisley is just like the houndstooth print, it NEVER goes out of
