How lovely and lady-like is this all around look? Pale pink is such a classic color and when paired with black, it has a sort of Audrey Hepburn appeal in a way. Don’t you think? The pink accented by black accessories, pearls and dark red lipstick would look appropriate and put together on a woman any age. Plus – it works for the office, a special engagement or a fancy dinner out. XO
By this time in December you’re deeply entrenched in the holidays. And we are coming at you with another dressy ensemble that you can wear to either Christmas or New Years! Most people expect you to wear gold, red, green and sapphire. Mixed metals and holiday colors are the total norm! So why not throw people off with a coral punch? Gold pumps, a gold clutch and gold and coral necklace are the perfect glittery pieces for a holiday look, but how about a coral lip and delicious Kate Spade perfume to complete the look? XX
We are “delightfully” HEAD-OVER-HEELS for the new arrivals at Kate Spade this fall! This gorgeous pink and black dress and quirky clutch are EVERYTHING. We admit that it would be overboard to wear it every single day, but would you blame us? The back of the dress is tied with an adorable bow and the whole outfit screams Breakfast at Tiffany’s! Love, love, love! XO
You know us well enough to realize that red and blue are one of our favorite color combinations. And the saturation of both colors can change easily with the seasons! Pale blue and red are perfect for spring and summer (super nautical!) and cobalt and scarlet are a perfect pair for fall! We’ve put together a contemporary look that would work well for bat mitzvahs, weddings, showers – life celebrations of all sorts! But also – date night in the city. Trust us – you’ll get tons of compliments just for not wearing black! Color on color is so fun. XO
Thankfully one of the biggest trends for fall 2014 is leather. We really grew accustomed to the idea of leather, last fall, when we purchased a few key pieces. We love dresses and skirts with laser-cut leather details and intricate leather designs. Now, we must warn you: there is a right and wrong way to do leather. To slowly add leather to your wardrobe, start with the basics. Black leather bags, buttery leather jackets, or cognac leather belts are neutrals. In order to step out of your comfort zone purchase “leather in details.” Banana Republic has all sorts of blouses with shoulder embellishments, which means it’s still appropriate for the office and totally fashion forward!
Let’s face it ladies – we are never without our purse. For some of us it holds our entire life – cellphone, car keys, day planner, snacks, lipstick. The list is endless. While it’s essential to carry around some of these things everywhere we go, some of us are guilty of using the wrong bag depending on which event we may be going to. Or even worse – use the same bag for everything!

There is no better holiday than New Years to wear your best sparkles . A little glitter and glitz can go along way when you’re dancing the night away. We understand if the party venue isn’t fancy so we’ve incorporated two looks here today. We recommend pairing both of these ensembles with metallic heel or strappy pumps.
So grab a glass of bubbly and get ready to boogie down.
Welcoming 2014 in style is the great way to kick off the new year!
