Staud Rainbow Dress

Happy Labor Day weekend! I’m here in Florida about to ride out a hurricane. Our weekend down here in Florida hasn’t been ideal but at least we have meteorologists. Anyway, I’ve been enjoying this Staud rainbow dress this summer. It’s a nice light cotton fabric, perfect for a hot summer day. I paired the dress with a cute Rebecca Minkoff mini yellow handbag and my Badgley Mischka metallic pink heels (similar Gucci here). Also added these pineapple earrings from H & M. Check out more photos below and enjoy the day!

Farfetch Mid-Winter Sale Finds!!

So if you haven’t heard already, Farfetch is having a ridiculous sale. Over 3000 items are up to 70% off, AND they’re throwing in an additional 20% off with the code x20ff. Yea, I know. Sounds too good to be true right? Well, there are actually some amazing finds! I didn’t comb through all 3000 items but I definitely made my way through a lot of them and found some cute things for myself.

PANTS

 

Everybody needs a good pair of jeans, these classic Brocken Bow skinny jeans above are on sale for $88. If you want to try something different…maybe you’re going to fashion week in one of the cities next month, try these purple Alberta Ferretti trousers with just a cool t-shirt or sweater.

SWEATSHIRTS

 

Found a few cute sweatshirts/sweaters. They’re ideal for cozy warmth on a cold winter day. Loving the lace detail on the Adidas by Stella McCartney sweatshirt. Fabulous.

 

DRESSES

  

Some of these dresses can work this winter with some tights and even an undershirt. But some of them will be absolutely perfect for the spring!

COATS

  

Okay so up north it definitely gets old wearing the same coat everyday. Especially that good old black or grey that everybody wears. Hey I love black and grey but there is no better way to spice up a cold winter day than with a bright-colored coat. Delpozo has a beautiful yellow and beige cape coat 40% off. Hurry though because there is only one left.

SKIRTS

There’s plenty of skirts on sale but I have to say this black and white Balmain mini skirt will definitely get worn. You can go to lunch with that…even to work if you do it right.

BAGS

So mind you this Bao Bao Issey Miyake bag is on sale and I hardly ever see any of their merchandise on sale. And kid you not, Ashish, Proenza Schouler and Rebecca Minkoff. High to low… yess!

 

SHOES

  

There’s a lot of boots on sale. Now might be the time to try that sexy high-knee boot or even these Versace velvet boots.

If you’re looking for more picks, feel free to visit the fashion shop. Have fun and please do share your finds in the comments below!

Wish List: Five Spring Chanel Bags

So spring has sprung and I recently came across a few Chanel handbags that were just so cute! Chanel bags can be expensive but they are worth the investment. Yes, some of them are trends of the moment but you’d be surprised how vintage Chanel bags can transcend time. Sequins and plastic are definitely a thing for Spring 2018. But I’m sure these bags will still be fabulous in the future. Check them out below and contact me for more information!

DezignNation Struts Miami Drive-In Fashion Show

I recently attended the Struts Miami Fashion Show by DezignNation (founded by Aguy Smith) and was completely blown away by Project Runway finalist Laurence Basse’s designs as well as a few other local designers. I had never been to a ‘drive-in’ fashion show but it was actually kind of convenient because it was cool in Florida that night.

I wore my Catherine Malandrino leather pants (similar below), a Club Monaco sweater and my Steve Madden sneaker heels. The show was in a parking garage and featured designs from House of Roxy B., Over a Trillion Served and more. They also had wine and pies from Pink Pie available at the show as well.

NEW COLLECTIONS

Blue and White Striped Mark D. Sikes Dress

When I was in New York in October there were a few warm days and I wore this Mark D. Sikes blue and white striped dress with my new Proenza Schouler PS1 white handbag. Since I’ve moved to Florida, this handbag goes perfectly with many of my bright-colored outfits. And if you’re up north, who says you can’t wear white all year round? If not, check out some of these other colors that the Proenza Schouler PS1 handbags below!

Karen Millen Work Dress

So Thanksgiving may be upon us but today is a work day. Although I blog, I still work as a financial planner and have to dress for the ‘corporate’ office at times. This Karen Millen dress may scream Florida but you can throw a leather jacket on it and rock it for Fall too. I just love the bright orange and black and white palm tree leaves. I paired it with a Khirma Eliazov clutch and Jean-Michel Cazabat pumps. I love this look for the office and beyond. Check out more photos below!
