Mad for Moto Jackets

Sunday, December 15th, 2013

Fashion posts are rare around here but I felt like talking about it today. Lately I’m obsessed with fitted faux leather jackets – this one arrived in the mail a few days ago and it’s a new favorite. The latest term for faux leather or pleather is ‘vegan leather’ but by any name, the cropped leather look jacket is still hot!

When I was visiting NYC earlier this year I noticed just about every designer or retailer had a version of a fitted moto jacket – some of them in the thousands (ouch this leather Versace is $3,995!) but I’m a “look for less” gal so I rounded up a dozen favorites – I want a colorful one for spring, they’re edgy and fun and I love them paired with skirts and dresses, don’t you?

Holiday Party Outfits!

Monday, November 25th, 2013
 
Hello and welcome to Thanksgiving week! Here in the States, we’ve all got our minds on the big feast coming up on Thursday, but you may also be thinking about what you might wear to the holiday parties just around the corner. My style is a look that’s classic meets flirty so I’m wearing this skirt paired with a black blouse, gold pumps and these earrings to host our holiday party this year.
 
I invited a favorite stylist and blogger to offer a few suggestions for holiday attire, all four of them different yet delightfully chic and feminine, please welcome Jennifer from Style Your Life and the four outfits she’s pulled together that are perfect for holiday parties!
 
"I love this very sweet classic look with some glam. It is like a modern day 1920’s look. This outfit is ideal for a fabulous date night or a glamorous cocktail party!"
