Spring Transition

Spring Transition

Green Envy

Green Envy
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! In honor of this holiday, I thought I’d post this awesome green dress from Anthropologie that currently has me swooning.  What a beautiful emerald green it is, too.  My mouth dropped when I found these earrings…both for their beauty, and their price tag. 8-O
I think I’d likely wear this ensemble to a Spring bridal shower, or something of the like.

Color of Spring-Dusty Rose

Color of Spring-Dusty Rose

 

I’ve been starting to notice that this ‘dusty rose’ color is popping up among retailers in their Spring reciepts.  It’s a pretty color.  Sort of a hybrid of blush and lavender.  And probably one you can wear as subtly as you want-like on your lips, or as a statement color-like with a cool jacket or pant.

I think my personal favorite from this set is the pocket square (Reiss Winehouse-link above).  You rarely see pocket squares anymore… but what a good way to add a touch of ‘dusty rose’ to a Spring ensemble.

Inspired: What to Wear for NYE

Inspired: What to Wear for NYE
I have always found TV and movies to be GREAT resources for fashion inspiration.  Think about it, your style evolves through your entire life because you evolve.  Your evolution includes the things that influence you-like TV and movies.  So, ultimately your style ends up being a tad bit of each of your favorite movie or TV characters, as well as anyone else in your life that you admire.
Anyway,  with New Year’s Eve literally around the corner, I thought I’d put together a NYE collage of party outfits inspired by some of my favorite TV and movie icons.
1.  Of course, Carrie Bradshaw.  My ultimate style icon.  Carrie’s style is so eclectic and fun, that even though some of her ensembles don’t necessarily go together, it still works because she’s Carrie.
2.  Serena Van der Woodsen.  Another of my style icons.  A little boho, a little eclectic-but always a show stopper.
3.  This one is primarily for the 40’s fashion.  I chose Joan Crawford because the fur coat is something she was in quite often in her movies-especially Mildred Pierce.  The 1940’s are probably my favorite fashion era.  Gorgeous fabrics, elegant, and classic shapes and styles.
4.  Daisy Buchanan.  The Great Gatsby.  Everything about the costume in the Great Gatsby was perfect.  Over the top glamor and sparkle that represented the era expertly.  My other favorite fashion era, for sure…give me some sequins and beads, feather details, and a pair of t-straps and I’m good to go.
5.  This gorgeous satin gown in the cobalt blue made me think of Rosemary Clooney.  There’s a gorgeous black gown that she wears in White Christmas and fits her like a glove…this blue beauty just looks like it’d be the perfect figure flattering gown.  And to kick it up a notch for the New Year, I thought it needed a sparkly jacket. ;)
6.  Last, but not least-Holly Golightly.  A fashion icon for many, I’m sure.  After all, she is who introduced us to the LBD, right?  Classic and modest, but also a little bit sexy.
Who are your TV/movie fashion icons?
