My Favorites From The Kate Spade New York Fall 2017 Collection

Image
For Fall 2017 designer Deborah Lloyd was inspired by the iconic African-American entertainer Josephine Baker, actress and well-known flapper Louise Brooks, and the painting " Le Coquelicot " by artist Kees Van Dongen. When I found out what her inspiration was for this season the first thing I thought was that obviously, she was going to make some references from the 1920's -1930's since her icons were at their height of fame during this time. 


What I didn't expect to see was how much of the collection had Russian and Eastern European influences but when I gave it some thought it did kind of make sense because during those decades a lot of art and fashion was influenced by that regions opulence. 


With so many different influences a collection can seem as if it is doing too much, but I was pleasantly surprised with the final outcome. She referenced the past without it being too overt. I especially liked the capes and longer silhouettes that were presented.

My Favorite Bow Dress For The Office

Image
I must admit I have a love/hate relationship with bows. I'm not a fan of the over girly versions featured on clothing or used as accessories but I do like the minimal and modern versions I have seen in the past few years. I like them simple and clean and not frilly. Basically, I prefer to look chic and elegant instead of frou-frou or prissy. 
One place that I think bows really work is in the office, especially when it is featured on a dress. To be honest, if you have a bow detail on your clothing there really isn't a need to wear a lot of accessories, because a bow speaks volumes. It is basically a statement accessory on its own so I usually wear the bare minimum when it comes to jewelry when rocking this particular detail because there is no need to detract from the star of the show. Plus, it is not a good idea to overdo it with jewelry at the office anyway because it can be too distracting and not practical unless you work in a creative field. Just add a sophisticated bag a…

My Favorite Fall Coats For Men

Image
Since I made a list of my favorite colorful fall coats for women (read here) today I am showcasing my favorite fall coats for men. I have found a variety of coats that would work with any man's style. I have covered the spectrum from colorful jackets, casual options, and a few that are suitable for work. Plus, they are all affordable and most are under $100. 


















My Favorite Colorful Coats For Fall

Image
I'm a summer baby so I loathe this time of year when we start transitioning to cooler weather, and the one thing that helps cheer me up is wearing a cute and colorful coat for fall. It has a way of brightening up my day and soothes my spirit. Since it is only fall and not winter I like to wear a coat that is lightweight and easy to layer. You never know if it will be a warm day or a cooler one so a lightweight coat is a must-have. Plus, I think a colorful coat is interesting to look at instead of being bombarded by the usual black or grey coat. 


















Which one is your fave and do you plan on investing in a colorful coat for fall? 


My Faves From The New Rebecca Minkoff x Stella & Dot Collaboration

Image
If you are a regular reader of my blog you know that I love jewelry. It is probably one of the things I love most about fashion. Without jewelry, I feel like an outfit isn't complete. It is the perfect finishing touch and says a lot about your personality. It is that extra flourish that is needed to elevate an outfit and take it to the next level. So when Stella & Dot reached out to me about their new collaboration with Rebecca Minkoff, one of the fashion industry's brightest stars who has a knack for creating collections that exude a cool edgy vibe, I most definitely had to check it out.

The collection strikes the perfect balance between making a statement but not being too overwhelming for the more cautious buyer. The collection consists of minimal gold jewelry and more ornate pieces made with colorful stones. Of course, I was more attracted to the more ornate pieces which I am featuring in today's post (to check out her full collection view here). Also, I think it …
