Chloe Resort 2014

Easy and effortlessly cool pants were the main attraction at Chloe’s Resort 2014 collection. I loved all the variations designer Clare Waight Keller introduced for resort. The slouchy high-waisted with wide legs and the cropped  tailored versions were among my favorites. Not to be overlooked were the great looking accessories. I loved the T-strap wooden heels and the flat sandals with prominent gold fastened ankle cuffs.

Street-Style Inspirations

Love how effortlessly cool her oversized  men’s shirt looks paired with a prim and proper pencil skirt and killer heels. The over the shoulder styling trick adds a sexy touch to this look. This is the perfect easy summer look: A lovely printed kaftan and wooden platform sandals.  

Life, Faith, & Jewelry: Meet Vita Fede Designer Cynthia Sakai

It’s the day before the Billboard Music Awards, and Cynthia Sakai has been hard at work pulling pieces from her wildly popular jewelry line, Vita Fede (life & faith in Italian), to adorn the likes of Selena Gomez, Alicia Keys, Avril Lavigne, Ke$ha, and Jessica Alba for the big event. “They are such a diverse group of women, but the beauty of Vita Fede is anyone can take our pieces and mix them into their own style,” says Sakai over the phone from her L.A.

New In My Closet

I had to have these boots as soon as I spotted them. Visions of me wearing them with a number of looks from spring into summer were quickly obliterated when literally overnight my pregnant feet (yep, I’m expecting this summer!) suddenly puffed up. I was prepared for the feet swelling that accompanies pregnancy, but I had no clue it would happen so fast and that it would require me to buy shoes almost two sizes bigger!

In The Mood For: White Blazer

I’ve been on a serious hunt for a crisp white blazer to wear this spring with everything from jeans to dresses. Here are some looks that are currently inspiring my white blazer obsession.

On My Radar: Abacaxi

Designer Sheena Sood (image above) has always been obsessed with fabrics, patterns and conceiving her own colorful prints. The former artist turned designer, who has lent her talents to Tracy Reese, Zac Posen and now Cole Haan, credits her Indian background with her affinity for folkloric textiles. When it came time for designing her first capsule line, abacaxi (Portuguese for pineapple), Sood was confident she wanted to conjure up her bohemian personal sense of style.

Who's That Girl: Michelle Elie

I’ve spotted this immaculately avant-garde striking woman on several style blogs. I’ve often wondered what her story was. Who was she? What did she do? With such an experimental wardrobe and eclectic sense of style, I just knew she had to work in fashion. Thanks to Tamu from AllThePrettyBirds she is no longer a mystery. Her name is Michelle Elie.
