Keeping it Basic

1 Apr

You know the same feeling you get when you buy a new purse, shoes or make-up, that’s goes for kitchen gadgets as well. I have been on a hunt for a silver tea stand and I finally found it at one of my favorite stores sur la table and this is what I wore while hunting for this gem. I also snagged some kitchen towels and the cutest porcelain strawberry basket. Anything to inspire me to keep my refrigerator clean and organized.

Spring Trend for 2013: Bermuda Shorts

22 Mar

Spring is here, although it feels more like winter in Michigan. On a fashion note Bermuda shorts were big on the runway for spring 2013, will you be rocking the look?

I must admit they can be intimidating, but they are family friendly and perfect for the girl who is not into the cheek-baring cutoffs. Plus they are a nice alternative to a skirt. I am a fan of them and J.Crew has them in the best colors at great prices with some added stretch for comfort and flattering to the figure.

Or go for the black and white tuxedo look, like the last photo, you will get three trends in one, as we know by now that black and white is big this spring as are tuxedos, how can you go wrong with a black and white tuxedo?

Happy St. Paddy’s Day Weekend Beauties

15 Mar

St. Paddy’s Day always sets the mood for spring with its traditional green, and this year you should not have trouble finding something to wear in green as we all know by now that emerald has been proclaimed the color of the year according to pantone fashion. Try color-blocking in different shades to get the most of this vibrant color. Wearing spring colors may not help the weather get warmer, but it will definitely brighten your look, at least that is how I deal with the winter blues.

Hope you all have some great plans for this St. Paddy’s Day weekend. We have a couple of events, and we are hoping to sell some of our green jewelry, as that always adds a nice touch to your outfit if you don’t want to be as dramatic to wear green.

Until next time,

Black White and Neon Yellow

27 Feb

My intention for my outfit posts on the blog is to keep track of what I have in my wardrobe so that I could get the best use out of it and only invest in essentials that I can wear from season to season which is why you see me styling my garments in different ways, like my favorite leggings which I also wore here.

Glitter, Cheetah And Polka Dots

22 Jan

Hi friends!

This weekend I was doing a bit of research online, magazines, and bit of window shopping for inspiration for new designs. Trust me, you will go bananas, I was inspired by classic pieces your used to seeing: Cow hide; abalone, and stones, but just like we said before, we love to keep our style classic but giving it a little unexpectedness and asymmetry is what makes us over the top ecstatic. Stay tuned!

If I tell you the story behind how I got my hands on it, better yet the price I got it for you’ll want to kill me. Hint: my friend works at a Barneys outlet.

Plaid Pants

12 Dec

Hi Jewels,

Hope you are all having a wonderful Wednesday!

As much as my sister loves polka-dots I love plaids. I have run around to hardware stores, and appliance stores with my husband since we bought our house and like any fashionista I have to make it a fashion statement.

Layering in Michigan is more necessary than it is a fashion statement, and although it hasn’t snowed it has been cold.

Fall Layering

3 Dec

Don’t be afraid of color  during the fall. You would be surprised how many people appreciate color during the season and you mustn’t be shy about layering and mixing patterns.  If layering, keep one article of clothing fitted, either the upper or lower waist and you will be safe. I posted some layering photos giving you a better idea of how to balance the look without looking frumpy.

Take a peek.

Country Chic

28 Nov

Hello Jewels,

Yes, I go country more of a preppy country, blame it on our roots. We grew up surrounded by ranches, in fact my husband and I married about five minutes away from Neverland Ranch, and Ronald Reagan’s ranch (Rancho del Cielo) which is why it was essential growing up in our area to own a pair of authentic cowboy boots.

I have had these gems for several years and they get better with time. I wear them through out the fall, with leggings, skinnies, skirts, and dresses.

I better watch it before Mocha my dog steals my thunder she is much more of a natural at modeling her little outfits.

Chambray – grand & greene, French Hen Sweater – J.Crew, Lips – Bobby Brown Orange, Wool Skirt – J.Crew, Bag – Coach, Cowboy Boots – Vintage

Until next time friends,

Navy Blue With A Cherry On Top

14 Nov

Hello Jewels,

I hope you are all having a great day!

As mentioned in a earlier post here that this sweater has become one of my favorites this fall, and it will take me into winter as well, it literally goes with many of my items in my wardrobe, whether I am mixing prints or keeping it streamline.

Take a look.


And a splash of mint was all I needed to brighten what could have been a very dark look.

Sweater – Tory Burch, Sunnies – Tory Burch Rounded Cat-Eye, Lipstick – Lancome Rouge In Love Midnight Rose 377, Nail Polish – essie no more film, Skirt – Banana Republic, Bag – J.Crew, Tights – J.Crew, Booties – Michael Kors

Until next time,
Monica
