How to Walk on Snow or Ice with Heels

20 Feb

Unfortunately the snow does not keep me from wearing heels the key is to “place your foot straight down so you do not slip” which I learned here and it worked!

On another note in order from keeping my green coat and red pumps from looking too holiday like I wore them with all neutrals underneath and my mustard yellow Coach leather cross-body bag.

Still in: Stripes

30 Jan

Hello Lovelies,

Stripes are not going anywhere this season and this winter I am wearing them with my brightest garments to get me out of the rut from this gloomy gray winter, although the last couple of days have felt more like spring in the upper 50s-60s not bad for winter in the MI.

I am loving these nude neutral J.Crew ribbed tights they look pretty close to my skin color and what is even better is that they keep me warm.

Happy Hump Day Lovelies,

I recently had to drop off some jewelry at the Detroit Artist Market (DAM) for their upcoming holiday market (Art For The Holidays Show) and I decided to go for a city look.

I can’t think of anything lovelier then wearing 100% cashmere wide leg trousers.

Snake Skin and Cheetah Print

26 Jun

Hello there Gorgeous Gems,

After my Florida post I figured I would tone it down, also because the weather somewhat cooled off. I attempted this classic constantly trending combing animal prints and as if that was not enough I added the classic Burberry plaids. I am a big fan of plaids as mentioned in a previous post here. In theory fashion is about trending classics with a twist or with a slight update would you agree?


Loafers: Gucci in forest green which I consider essentjewel. These are what I call black heels because they play as black heels.

Cardigan: J.Crew I am obsessed with cardigans. I can never have enough of them in my closet.

Nail polish: essie no more film, I have a feeling I will be wearing this one a lot in the fall.


Snake skin dress: Ann Taylor. This dress takes me from ordinary to confident, don’t you love when a dress does that? If only I could wear it to an interview, kidding!


Earrings: twisted stones by essentjewels which you can find here currently an essenjewel for me, I am thinking they will remain an essentjewel not only currently.


The Burberry bag is very meaningful to me because it is one of the first things my hubby bought me, years ago and I didn’t select, he knows me too well. He knows I love the classics this was also very early on in our relationship (thank you honey).

Want-to-be Wayfarer: bungalow I need a genuine pair like yesterday, however these are not too shabby, bungalow does an awesome job about what they choose to carry in their store, as I walked in there I immediately felt a California vibe because of the music they were playing, and the ambiance. Lipstick by FlIRT wicked, how can you not buy a lipstick called wicked.


And pearl strand essentjewels eccentric you can find here, which lives up to its name, every time I combine a get-up that in my opinion is pretty eccentric, I add this simple pearl strand which is a lot of the time is all I need. For more of a youthful approach to the pearl strand wear it partially underneath the neckline of your top everyone knows it’s a pearl strand even when its partially showing.

Jewels, what are some classic combos or modern trends that you attempted and where surprised with the results?

With love,
Monica
