A TOUCH OF RED :: VIVALUXURY FOR FERRAGAMO

May 29, 2015

MSGM boucle flared skirt
Good morning, Everyone! I hope you're all enjoying your week so far! I am so excited to partner with Ferragamo yet again ( if you read my blog on regular basis, you may remember our collaboration from last year ) to style a pair of sunglasses from their SS 2015 collection. Though it was definitely not an easy choice to make, for there are so many wonderful colors to choose from, I went with a pair of oversized round frames in the most beautiful shade of red. Aside from the fact that red happens to be one of my favorite colors, I love the striking look red creates, paired with my beloved white and black palette! And sure, I've ventured into color a bit lately, yet I still find myself gravitating towards a more monochromatic and calmer color palette, which works so well when you add a single bright accessory, such as a pair of red shades, for example:)

VIVALUXURY x MEJURI JEWELRY COLLECTION

May 27, 2015

VivaLuxury Mejuri Jewelry Collection, Mejuri hite Velvet Collection, The Girl With A pearl
They say every great dream begins with a dreamer... Those of you who've been with me from the very beginning, probably know that aside from starting VivaLuxury, my greatest dream in life was to design a jewelry collection. Well, I can hardly believe it but my dream has come true and it is with great joy I am excited to unveil my Capsule Collection for Mejuri jewelry. 

My relationship with Mejuri began over year ago with a short little email. Of course, at that time I couldn't possibly imagine what a profound effect an email could have on my life. At that time, all I knew was that I felt an immediate connection to Mejuri jewelry and the company esthetic in general. Over time, as our relationship progressed, we've come to realize that not only was our esthetic incredibly similar, we also shared a passion for jewelry and design and so, we began thinking about collaborating in a more profound way and a capsule collection just felt like a great pace to start.

LITTLE BLACK SHIRTDRESS

May 25, 2015

BANANA REPUBLIC Monogram poplin shirtdress

I've always been a fan of shirtdresses. There is a certain kind of ease and nonchalant coolness about them. Comfortable and stylish, to me, shirts dresses are a must-have Summer staple to wear day or night. Found this particular one on a recent trip to Banana Republic and fell in love with it the moment I saw it! Aside from the fact that I cannot resist a dress with pockets no matter how hard I try, this one has quite a bit of those special details I always look for. I mean how cute are those ruffle sleeves with tie details! I also love the unexpected color! Most shirtdresses I came across are white. Now, don't get me wrong, I love white dresses but in this particular case, I feel black makes this dress just a tad cooler and edgier, and possibly more appropriate for night:) What do you guys think? 


TAUPE TRENCH

ALL SAINTS Hace trench coat

I've been practically living in this trench coat lately trying to stay warm in LA's cooler temperatures. Honestly, I don't know what it is lately, but the weather just can't seem to make up it's mind. Hot and sunny one day, doom and gloom the next. Normally, I would just reach for a sweater or a leather jacket when it gets like this, but lately, I've become a huge fan of a trench coat, for it's definitely a cozier, and in many ways warmer option. 

Love this particular one I found at All Saints because of the slightly slouchier, softer silhouette. You know how much I love versatility, and this one works with just about anything from dresses, to jeans and denim cutoffs. I've even warn it for cocktails the other day pairing it with a fitted pencil skirt and a pair of heels and loved the way it looked! And when you find something that works day and night and looks good with essentially everything in your closet, you know it's a keeper:)

H&M jumpsuit

This pretty terracotta-colored jumpsuit takes comfort to a whole new level! If I could spend the rest of summer wearing just the one thing, this would be it! Aside from comfort, color and overall fit, what I love about this one is the fact that it virtually doesn't wrinkle. Sure it sounds a bit mundane, I mean who cares about a few wrinkles, and yet... I do:) There were so many times I got into my car in the morning, looking completely presentable, and arrived to an important meeting looking like a wrinkled mess! But in this jumpsuit I can sit, slouch or even twist myself into a pretzel if I wanted to without being afraid of those pesky little wrinkles! And in my book, that is always a good thing:)!

EXPRESS printed chiffon trapeze dress

As you can see, I remain fully committed to wearing every fun and flirty frock imaginable :) This particular printed wonder from EXPRESS is my current favorite thanks to the totally twirl-worthy  silhouette and colorful print! Basically, it's a perfect little summer mini dress. I especially love the fact that you can dress it up with a pair of heels like I did in today's post since I was going out for drinks with my girls or down, with a pair of cute flats and a roomy tote. But of course those are just a few examples, really the possibilities are endless... The other day I had it on with a leather jacket and slouchy boots and absolutely loved the way it looked! 

Have a feeling it's going to be one of those pieces you're going to be seeing again and again! You know how I get when I find something I really like:) Hope you don't mind...

RAG & BONE The Skinny jeans

Back in my favorite weekend uniform, i.e. a pair of distressed jeans, oversized shirt and fun heels. Funny, but of all the things I wear, this particular combination is the one I feel most comfortable in. And sure, high heels are not exactly synonymous with comfort, but you know me, I am not flats kind of a gal. In fact, I've gotten so used to wearing heels anything below 3 inches is comfortable and therefore qualifies as weekend wear... Though for pumps as gorgeous as the ones from Paul Andrew I am wearing in today's post, I gladly break the 3 inch rule:)
