Boho Fabulous c/o Hale Bob

Posted on by Leslie / Posted in Uncategorized | Tagged , , , , , , | Leave a comment

Our favorite piece in store right now? This feminine take on 70’s boho for spring by Hale Bob. The print is divine: warm pale pink compliments most anyone’s complexion, while bright shots of aqua and green set off the painterly feathers. We paired it with a linen/lurex scarf by Love Quotes (in blush with just a hint of shimmer thanks to the Lurex) and a brushed gold Italian horn pendant with CZ pave by Be-Je. Perfection.

We’re SO crazy about this gorgeous new floral pullover from Autumn Cashmere – it’s given us all spring fever. The good news is that it’s cozy enough to wear right now. Layered, of course. We paired it with a luxurious pale pink ruffle wrap, also Autumn Cashmere, and our favorite boyfriend jeans by Seven for All Mankind. A gold druzy necklace by Marcia Moran and calf hair belt by B-Low the Belt cap off the look.

Roundup: Grey

Posted on by Leslie / Posted in Accessories, Fall 2014, Shades of Grey, Trends | Tagged , , , , , , , , | Leave a comment

Defined as the intermediate color between black and white, it’s surprising that it took so long for grey to rise to power in the fashion world. Long associated with 80’s drab, grey has reintroduced itself as a contemporary neutral, ready to update any look.

Always one to set the bar, Gerard Yosca recently introduced his new collection “Shades of Grey.” According to Gerard, “Grey reduces forms to their essence, and makes you see them in a new way.” ….Yeah, what he said! Did we mention that Gerard will be here in person on November 13th?!

We’ve all been gold-obsessed lately, but silver is a lovely and bright alternative that’s piqued our interest. It’s always good to mix things up.

The Boyfriend Everyone Loves

Posted on by Leslie / Posted in Fall 2014, Trends | Tagged , , , | Leave a comment

There’s a new Bo in town, who loves everyone’s bootie… Our favorite not-so-new-but-now-exploding denim trend, the Boyfriend Jean.
They’re comfortable, easy to style, and versatile. We think they’re best worn with a pair of pumps and a feminine blazer on top. Keep it simple.

There are two versions in store:

vizcaino boyfriend
The Sexy Boyfriend by Vizcaino denim features a straight leg and slightly higher rise, resulting in a jean that’s a great fit on just about everyone.

seven boyfriend
Seven for All Mankind’s version, the Josefina Feminine Boyfriend, is also a mid-rise, but boasts a skinnier leg, making it more contemporary.

Whichever you choose, we think you’ll have a new crush.

A Stony Spring 2014

Posted on by Leslie / Posted in Accessories, Spring 2014, Trends | Tagged , , , , | Leave a comment

Mr. Yosca has hit it out of the park again – this time, picking up immediately on one of the hottest trends for Spring 2014: marble. Marbled fabrics were all over the runways for this season, but we much prefer it in jewelry form, as Gerard Yosca expressed it with his newest collection, “Bel Air.”

In true Hollywood Regency style:

Gerard Yosca White Marble Stone Tassle Necklace

Carrera Marble Necklace by Gerard Yosca, $315

Gerard Yosca White Marble Drop Earring

Gerard Yosca Black and White Marble Stone Necklace

Carrera and Black Marble Stone Necklace by Gerard Yosca, $285

Gerard Yosca White and Black Marble Clip Earring

Can’t you just see the sweeping staircases of Beverly Hills? And, needless to say, these pieces go with tons of looks, being so neutral. We’re all-around enamored with this collection, and the man who created it.

The Tuesday Tip :: Brow Control

Posted on by Leslie / Posted in Beauty | Tagged , , , | Leave a comment

Insider tips are always the best when it comes to makeup – professional artists have sifted through products, honing their repertoires down to a science, and it’s time for us to take advantage. One of my favorite backstage-at-fashion-week tips is this:

Brow gels are fine, but the professionals use little more than a disposable mascara wand (find them at Sally Beauty Supply) and a can of L’Oreal Paris’ Elnett Hairspray (available at CVS, opt for the unscented version). Simply mist the mascara wand with hairspray, and brush through your brows for a firm, yet invisible, hold all day.

The thing I love about this technique is that you don’t get the wet brow look that often results from using gel, but it keeps my brows in place all day. Plus, previously only available in Europe, Elnett is a magic trick in and of itself – it brushes out, but offers weightless hold and humidity resistance throughout even a KC summer day. Just look at Kourtney Kardashian hoarding it overseas before it was available in the U.S.:

Think of them what you will, but those girls know their cosmetics. If the Kardashians are into it, I’m taking notice.

 

Designer Bites: Tracy Reese’s Cocktail Hour

Posted on by Leslie / Posted in Lifestyle, Recipes | Tagged , , , , | 2 Comments

How much do we love this woman?

Tracy Reese runs a major design house, sits on the board of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, dresses the First Lady, and STILL finds time to exercise her creativity in the kitchen.

I mean, just look at these:

Tracy Reese's Figs & Ricotta

If you really feel like getting carried away, you can make your own ricotta a la Gwyneth Paltrow and Ina Garten. Do they put us all to shame, or what?

Then wash them down with this little concoction:

We love the addition of blood oranges and nutmeg to this classic recipe.

Bon Weekend! Cheers everyone.
