Have you ever wanted to be “Oh SO CAJ but didn’t know how you could possible do so with out just walking around in your PAJAMAS!!?? Well guess what? Now you CAN …The newest trend sweeping the nation is Flare oversized bottoms.
My favorites this season are the ones with the crazy prints! Think Animal, Floral, Polkadots…Wearing a tighter top will definetly draw the wanted attention to your pants…however, loose oversized tops will also work well making you look oh so hippy-chic. Date night, Casual Friday, Girls Night, Sunday Brunch…take these pants to em all!
Switching gears, last weekends’ Grammys definetly had some beautiful dresses. Paris Hilton wore a gown by Basil Soda. She looked like an elegant aristocrat in that beautiful white dress & the belted accent accentuates her tiny waistline!
Rihanna definetly stole the show!! Her custom tailored Versace gown was one word and one word only: SEXY!! Pure sexiness. From the low neckline in the front to the sweeping back/ chains she couldn’t have looked hotter. The dress fit like a glove and she looked flawless.
Happy February!! Valentines day is fast approaching, with little under two weeks its about that time of year. If you’re NOT a total girly girl, there is good news for you…folks you DON’T have to walk out head to toe in SHOCKING PINK!!! Unless of course you are trying to dress up as Elle Woods aka Legally Blonde then by all means GO FOR IT! (I must admit I am a bit of a tom boy when it comes to getting ready, the quicker it takes the better I feel… but I don’t like to look like I dressed in the dark.)
This month’s tips: Try incorporating flashes of color here and there to your overall look, whether it be an accent on your hand bag, a strap on your heel, or even the color of sequins on your blouse…try wearing some form of red, pink, coral or even orange this February.
Just like we saw this past January at the Golden Globes, head bands are making their way back in style as statement pieces for that glamorous outfit. Charlize Theron and Michelle Williams definetly had eyes on them with their glitzy beautifully encrusted head pieces from Vintage Cartier and Fred Leighton. The headband shown above in our collage is a beautiful petal headpiece which definetly adds a nice touch to her elegant outfit. We picked a striped Cotton Viscoe Knit skirt by Mirco Giovannini that accentuates her lovely shape. Herve Leger’s bandage dress is so yesterday, this is a nice twist on the famous body hugging garment that so many celebrities were wearing yesteryear.
Pitter, Patter DON’T forget to wear your heart on your sleeve! If you are not romantically involved at the moment buy yourself an Italian lover. Kidding, but really buy yourself an Italian made Forzieri Gold Crystal Jeweled Heart Clutch! It is gorgeous and Swarovski enjeweled clutch that glitters and shines. It is complete with a removable chain that can be used as a shoulder bag as well. Fendi’s fur ankle boots and Barbara Bui Ankle Strap Heel in Pink/Black are my two favorite loves! Barabara Bui mixed just the right shades of pink to complement our outfit. No matter which style you end up wearing, Karl’s Hooded PVC top is the perfect way to complete the look!
If you are on a budget this Spring, no worries these looks can be achieved with just the right eye! HAPPY LOVING! Xoxo Mo
Last Sunday’s Golden Globes definitely had some show stopping gowns.
Striking a pose and commanding attention: Here are Mona’s top favorite dresses of the night:
Kate Beckinsale in Roberto Cavalli looked absolutely flawless. This strapless mermaid gown looked like it fit like a glove. Truly classy.
So simple yet so chic. Angelina Jolie with her dashing red stripe and clutch made a show stopping appearance in this Versace gown with red accents.
Emma Stone in Lanvin looked like a grecian goddess. Everything about this gown was original. The pleating, the eagle belted accent, the sheer elegance of the fabric. Two toned maroon shades made this gown gorgeous.
Do you ever want to draw attention to a nice pair of heels, handbag, or pair of earings? Sometimes when we get all dressed up for a night out on the town, our individual pieces get overlooked.
Since we are in a new year, why not fully embrace 2012 and twist things up!
Try pairing a super comfy knit sweater with whatever fancy outfit you would normally wear. You will look so effortlessly chic.
This is a great way to feel classy and comfortable yet still look dressy and sassy.
Mary Kate would sure be proud, this is her signature Boho Chic knit sweater look thrown in to make a Broadway appearance!
Red lipstick, fur and diamonds…..are the perfect accessory to pair with a white dress. This Rare Opulence Lace and tulle tutu dress isn’t just any old dress. It is gorgeously girly and ballerina inspired. This looks like it belongs on the stage of a Black Swan dance performance.
Not only will you steal the show’s performance in this gown, but with these Kenneth Jay Lane Crystal earrings you are guaranteed to be shining all night.
These Lady Charm-alade Heel in leaf green are powerful yet not overwhelming since the dress is a calm and serene white.
When I think about the 50’s I can’t help but think of the classic woman. Fitted gloves, perfectly pin curled hair, a touch of lipstick and winged cat eyes.
Paired with a bit of modern funk accessories of today’s world, the 50’s is the perfect era to steal some finishing touches to complete the perfect GIRLY elegant look.
Vivienne Westwood’s Gold Label Cocotte silk-blend jacquard dress is just the right kind of form fitting dress that would make 50’s style icon Audrey Hepburn proud. This is the kind of dress you would wear to have Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
You know the saying “If you look good, you feel good?” Well let’s just say this dress would make HAPPY hour stand true to its name.
Fake eyelashes are the perfect way to draw attention to your eyes, and Mac’s Bright Lip color is just the right tone to complement the gold. When wearing gold, wearing lipsticks that are dark and matte tend to work well since they don’t draw too much attention. After all, the eyes belong on the gown.
Not only does this look make you feel like a Foxy Fierce Woman, but these Christian Louboutin Splash Fur Slingback’s are actually made with real Fox hair!! These shoes are spunky and bold. They are just the right shades of camel to balance the two tones of gold in the imprinted gown.
For jewelry, try mixing black n’ yellow pieces. Since this gown has a high neckline, we omit any necklaces. Therefore, piling on different sizes of cuffs are a fun way to dress up your arms with bling.
Just because you don’t own a Harley Davidson, doesn’t mean you can’t ROCK out in some leather. Even just a few touches here and there can definitively add some edge to your look.
These electric neon Shourouk E. Vegas crystal and sequin earrings are the perfect pop of color to edge out your rockin fit’.
Sam Edelman did nothing but greatness with these black Zoe booties. The Leather and suede combo are the perfect casual edge mix and with a 5 1/2 inch platform, there is no way you will be missed in these gorgeous kicks.
The Row Remsen striped cashmere skirt in navy and white is a great cashmere skirt that can be worn to the office during the day or dressed up enough to grab some food with friends at the end of the day.
The finishing touch on this outfit is definitively the clutch.
Look out world, this fierce woman is ready for battle. Nobody will mess with you especially when they catch a glimpse of your Christian Louboutin Eden studded leather clutch!!
