Monochromatic Moment

A huge trend I’m currently obsessing over, as seen on celebrities and runways, is the Monochromatic trend. For those of you who don’t know, the term monochromatic means one color. Normally I’m opposed to a ridiculously matchy-matchy outfit, however a simple monochromatic skirt, top, and shoes is simple and sleek. Kim Kardashian flaunts the look below in two of my favorite monochromatic outfits I’ve seen. Whether you love her or hate her, she looks amazing in her nude Lanvin skirt and crop top and deep yellow gown and coat!

Come on! Try something new!

Want to add a little spice to your wardrobe? Try something new? Well what better way to do it than with a pair of knee high socks or a pair of funky printed pants!

Here are a few ideas of what outfits you can create with these items.

Here my friend Hannah has on a pair of loose fitting printed pants, paired with a black belt, a simple black t-shirt, and flats.  So trendy! And yet so simple!

Above I am wearing knee high socks paired a pair of black panty hoes, a tight long sleeved dress, a black cardigan, and a chunky black necklace, and black pointed flats.

Here’s another example of something you can do with knee high socks.

I paired the same black knee highs, black tights, and black cardigan but instead underneath I wore a black tight skirt and a loose tank top. For my shoes I chose black combat boots. And of course, I ALWAYS accessorize.

So give it a try! You really can’t go wrong!

Charles James: Beyond Fashion

So If you’ve seen my recent post about the Hollywood Costume exhibit you can guess that I’m a museum junkie.  One of my all time favorite museums is the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC.  From May 8th- August 10th 2014, the Met will showcase about 100 designs along with sketches, clothing patterns and swatches by one of America’s first couturiers, Charles James.  He originally became famous in the 40’s and is well known for his complex designs and redefining the norms of dress-making in the 50’s.  Be sure to check out the short video on the museum’s website that features some of his designs!

Celebrity Inspiration: Grammy Edition

As I’m sure all of you know the Grammy Awards took place last night. My favorite part of the evening was just watching the celebrities arrive on the red carpet and looking at all the fashion. Some celebrities had it going on and some just made me wonder what they were thinking?? However, I have to say my favorite look of the night was Carrie Underwood wearing a dress by Roberto Cavalli. Carrie seems to always have a great sense of fashion and I’m sure most all of you would agree with me!
