Winter Cabin Fever

I'm not an outdoorsy type, but I have always dreamed of having a chic little cabin in the woods. I would imagine if I owned a cabin I would decorate it with a more modern and slightly masculine edge with hints of traditional rustic touches. It would be a beautiful rustic retreat that perfectly suits my sensibilities. What would be your ideal retreat?

Artistic Inspiration - Silent Street

If you have followed my blog over the years you know that I am constantly inspired by art. My love for art has lead me to feature hundreds of artists over the years in my Artists of the Day blog posts. Sometimes when I am searching for artists to feature I will come across an artwork that moves me so much that it inspires me to create an outfit around it. Today's outfit of the day was inspired by an ink drawing, "Silent Street" by the artist Emanual M. Ologeanu. I was drawn to the moodiness of his work. The muted color palette with the pop of red made my eyes focus right on the central figure, and held me there. So I went with it and created this beautiful outfit.

The Gilded Rose

It's party time! Be the life of the party in sparkling sequins, silky fabrics or embellished details. Put a fun spin on this season's eveningwear. Sequins are a favorite party staple - this black floral hem number with minimal accessories and black strappy heels is the perfect pick. Speaking of  black strappy heels I found this beautiful pair of Stephanie Suede Ankle Strap Court Shoes at These eye-catching heels will grab all the right attention for the party season. To finish off the look I added a touch of femininity with a pair of dainty earrings by Miguel Ases, and a sparkly gold clutch.

My Faves From The Bespoken Fall 2014 Men's Collection

Designers Liam and Sammy Fayed believe that men want to dress discretely, and with that idea in mind, they took a dark approach for fall. They took the idea of traditional suiting and turning it on its head. This collection showcases their skill for tailoring with a slight rock 'n' roll edge.

Rock A Metallic Skirt This Winter

From the runways to celebrity sightings, we're seeing elegant muted hues with glimmering details. This winter season shimmers with a mix of metallics and cool tones. I always prefer metallics in small doses. That's why this Isabel Marant short skirt was perfect for today's outfit of the day. The shimmering silver detail add a glamorous feel when paired with a denim shirt. Plus, you can never go wrong by adding a little sparkle to even the simplest of outfits.
