Here are a few more runway looks revamped with Polyvore to fit my style:

I’m always a little nervous pulling off different patterns, but I think I could manage this outfit with a few changes. Here’s a short (affordable) floral dress that I would definitely rock, matched with a military-green bomber jacket (because I’ve always wanted a bomber jacket and I think the material works better than an ordinary military jacket would). You’d only see some of the pattern of the socks and the blue matches the hue of the dress enough. Boots – cause I prefer them to traditional heels, cinch the waist with a belt, and whip on some red lipstick and I’m pretty Prada perfect.

 

2) Alice + Olivia 2016 Ready-to-Wear

This is a fairly simple look to rock. Find a floral maxi dress? Check. Pair it with my very own patch jean jacket? Check. To add a little more color, I’d love to rock a pair of yellow docks and my favorite little red backpack. Go simple with the makeup with black liner and matte nude lips for a simple, everyday look.

 

3) Ulyana Sergeenko Spring 2016 Couture

What a fun look that mashes feminine and rock star vibes, right? Well, with my own twist on the style, I took the more feminine side with a beautiful floral skirt, flats with a bow, pink lips, and a stylish grey top. However, I can’t go without a little drama: added by thick liner and silver arrow earrings.

Runway My Way

So, you know when you watch a runway show and think to yourself “who would ever wear that?” or “why would anyone wear that?” Even though I can appreciate the beautiful workmanship that goes into all types of fashion, I’ve often wondered the same things. So, through the lovely Polyvore, I reimagined some runway looks to fit something I would wear.

1) Giamba Resort 2017

I love how fresh and clean this look is and wanted to maintain the feel of it in my own rendition of the look. I kept up the pineapple theme with the skirt, but wanted to have some more fun and color to it, because that’s just my style. A softer blue shoe tones down the fun of the skirt. I also wanted a sleeveless top because sleeves stress me out sometimes and with a summer look like this, nobody should be wearing sleeves. Finish it off with muted nails and classy pearl earrings and there’s the look!

 

2) Alexander McQueen Fall 2016 Ready to Wear

I don’t think I could get away with just a lacy bra in real life (hey, why not?), but just to cover my bases, I picked a lacy tank top instead. A white blazer and a torn up pair of black jeans keeps up the rock and roll vibe, as does the chain bracelet I added to the look. A muted, simple pink lip should add some calm to the look while a smokey eye adds some drama. Add a simple black bag and you’re off!

3) Nina Ricci Resort 2017

And now for my favorite of the looks, one a bit more daring than the others: Nina Ricci Resort 2017. How fun would it be pairing these lacy looks in different colors: blue for the top and red for the bottom. I felt as if having full fishnets might be a little too much, so I settled on fishnet socks – perfect for the open toe platform (easy for me to walk in, because I’m terrible at walking in heels). Dramatic, bold lashes pair nicely with a simple nude lip (I’m been using NYX Lip Lingerie in Teddy and I love it). With a cheetalicious clutch at my side, I’ll be ready to go.

Fur-Real

Uncategorized

I live in LA. And if you’re not from here, just know that it’s basically 75 degrees all the time. So . . . all my dreams of waltzing in Downtown LA with a flowing, brightly colored (faux) fur coat is dashed by the sad reality that it will never be cold enough for me to rationalize having a bunch of fur coats in my closet.

Doesn’t mean a girl can’t do some online window-shopping. Here’s my latest obsession: fun fur coats.

The Oreo Look

Uncategorized

While trying to reorganize my Fashion Forward Pinterest board that had accumulated over 3,000 pins, I decided to separate certain styles into more specific categories. I stumbled upon a very specific, very chic look that kept reappearing: an entire outfit created from only white and black items.

Now, I’m sure there’s a name for this, but I’ve coined it The Oreo Look and here are a couple of examples and styling tips as to how to get the perfect Oreo Look for your own fashionista endeavors

Black Pants + White Top

This look is so classy. Every time I see it, it just looks fabulous. Whether you’re wearing black jeans, leggings, slacks, or any variation in between topped with a plain white v-neck or a crisp collared shirt, you absolutely can’t go wrong with this look.

 

Black and White Gingham

The gingham adds a cheery, picnic feel while the black and white keeps it simple. Pair with crisp black heels and a cherry red lip.

 

Polka Dots or Stripes

Always adorable and very easy to pair with a black or white addition: black skirt, white shoes, black bag, and so on and so forth.

 

Graphic Tee

Nothing’s more classic than a graphic tee paired with some good old jeans. For The Oreo Look, make sure your tee is all black and white paired with black or white jeans. Or if you want to be a little adventurous, pair the tee with a patterned skirt: gingham, plaid, or any pattern that pleases you.

 

The Tuxedo Look

I love this look always: either on the red carpet or for any fancy night out. A crisp tux looks classy on anybody and doesn’t need a lot of accessorizing to really make a statement.

Upcycle Old Magazines Into A Personalized Lookbook

Uncategorized

This is for people who still have the Vogue September issue from 2005. Honey, it’s time to clean house.

I know how hard it is to toss that three year-old Nylon with Emma Watson on the cover into the trash-bin—it’s painful, yes, but possible. And lucky for you, I’ve discovered a way you can clear away the fashion-mag clutter while still holding onto style tips from years ago. Turn your old fashion magazines into cool, personalized lookbooks.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Panel1

  • 3-ring binder
  • All your old fashion magazines
  • Hole-puncher

1. Tear Out Your Favorite Looks From Old Magazines

This is the time-consuming part. You’ve got to sift through the burgeoning hoard of glossy style-Bibles and carefully rip out those pages that immediately catch your eye. For me, it’s always a black-on-black pantsuit. I can never pass those up.

2. Carefully Hole Punch Your Selected Pages

3. Enter The Pages Into The Binder

Just slide the pages into the binder and voila—your very own lookbook!

And when that binder starts getting a little too full, start another one! Before long, you’ll have a curated selection from a variety of fashion magazines that alludes to your very own personal style. And more shelf space.

How to Dress Like Suzy Bishop

Uncategorized

Margo Tenenbaum is the quintessential Wes Anderson style icon, but let’s not forget her younger, just-as-stylish counterpart—Suzy Bishop from Moonrise Kingdom.

Her solemn, cool demeanor that evokes something of an Effy Stonem vibe (for all our Skins fans out there) combined with girlish pastels, lacy socks, and Peter Pan collars is what makes her style that much more enviable. And don’t forget your beetle earrings.

MoonRise_Blog2Here are a couple of ways to get Suzy’s style:
