Designer Spotlight: Forest of Chintz

Designer Spotlight: Forest of Chintz www.toyastales.blogspot.com #ToyasTales #ForestofChintz #IndianJewelry

Forest of Chintz was founded by designing duo Sumangali Gada and Nitai Mehta. Their luxurious brand offers beautiful jewelry and accessories with Indian influences. They are well known in the Indian fashion industry and are also known for running Adity, one of India's oldest fashion houses. Now they are using all of their acquired skills to turn out beautiful jewelry that is flattering and opulent. What I like most about their offerings is their eye for detail and the use of traditional Eastern embroidery techniques. The line is beautifully crafted and designed. I can't help but admire the artistry. To view more from their latest collection (click here).

My 11 Faves From The Elie Tahari FW 2016 Collection

Even though I am known for loving vibrant hues my first true love has always been the color black. I always thought a woman wearing it had a hint of mystery, maybe it is because whenever I want to appear dignified and in control I reach for this particular color. From a fashion standpoint, it always has a slimming effect. So, I could never dislike that. That's why Elie Tahari's Fall/Winter 2016 collection caught my eye. He was one of the rare designers that did not offer a variety of color in his presentation. His collection consisted of neutrals, and the majority was in the color black. So, if you are the kind of woman who likes to wrap yourself in this sophisticated color this collection is most definitely for you. Elie made sure that his use of the color black was most definitely never boring. He added visual interest with texture, prints, and luxurious fabrics. My favorite items from the collection were the black lace dresses which were elegant, sophisticated and sexy.

My 11 Favorite Men's Winter Coats

Last week I wrote a post about my favorite colorful coats for women so this week I'm taking care of the guys and showcasing my eleven favorite coats for men. I have noticed over the years that men tend to buy only one coat (if they even buy one) during the winter season and they usually wear it for all occasions. Why? Do you think it is more practical, is it the simplest solution, or are you just cheap? Whatever the reason may be it is unfortunate because most guys need more than one coat for at least two types of situations. They usually need a winter coat for casual events and a more formal option for business and special occasions. So today I'm showing you a few of my favorites for the current season.

My 10 Faves From The Alice + Olivia Fall/Winter 2016 Collection

After reading the book "City On Fire" designer Stacey Bendet knew she found her inspiration for Alice + Olivia's fall/winter collection. She became really fascinated with the idea of New York during the seventies. At that time New York was a much grittier place, not the cleaned up version we see now. During that time period, New York was bankrupt financially but very culturally rich. She translated that vibe into her collection by offering up diverse and eclectic pieces.

Pacify Her

" Someone told me stay away from things that aren't yours
But was he yours, if he wanted me so bad? 
Pacify her 
She's getting on my nerves 
You don't love her 
Stop lying with those words " 
- " Pacify Her" by Melanie Martinez  

I was intrigued at first sight when I saw The Romantic Couple Earrings in an Etsy shop, and I knew immediately I had to style an outfit around it. Automatically it reminded me of one of my favorite songs of 2016 which was " Pacify Her " by Melanie Martinez. Maybe it was because he appeared to be appeasing her in some way. So I let that little ditty serve as my inspiration for today's fashion set. Since the earrings are so expressive I kept the rest of the outfit really simple. I did not want the other elements of the outfit to detract from this special pair of danglers. 

So I leave you with this question, " Does music affect your fashion sense and how you style yourself on a daily basis?"
