It’s a wrap.

Isn’t this a great look? The addition of the scarf wrapped around the outside of this monochromatic, slightly manly looking jacket, gives it just the flair it needs to become more interesting and unique. I have a couple jackets with waist ties and think that tomorrow I will experiment with a scarf wrapped round the outide of a basic jacket. My favorite part: How the ends of the scarf are tucked neating into the belt. So ingenious. What do you think of this look, dear readers? Spxx

Day and Night: The Maxi Dress

January 29, 2009

I was inspired by a look I saw in the most recent Lucky magazine, where they layered a long maxi dress with a blazer and turtleneck. I became intrigued with it and decided to create two looks—one for day, one for night—based around one dress. Here’s what I came up with! Enjoy! SPxx

Think of how awesome your feet would feel slipping into a pair of freshly chilled heels on a hot summer day.

I’ve been tagged!

January 28, 2009

So, Louise from the lovely blog, Love, Life and a Double Latte, tagged me, along with the following instructions:

* Go to the fourth folder where you keep your photographs
* Choose the fourth picture
* Explain it.

This is what I came up with:16th-st

First of all, I was pleasantly surprised when this photo popped up as the forth item in the folder because it happens to be one of my favorites. I even have it printed out and tacked to my bulletin board at work. In my opinion, this girl’s outfit is perfection all the way from her hair to her heels. I love how she is “winterizing” her green floral dress by pairing it with black tights, and those oxfords…well, if you read my blog, then you will know how I feel about them. I also love this photograph because it reminds me of the Beatles’s album cover, Abbey Road. So cute!

So, I now tag the following four bloggers!

Those lips, that hair…her jacket! This girl has such an interesting and appealing look about her. I really like this shot because it reminds me of something that would be on the awesomely cool blog, Le Smoking. Also, I wish my hair would look like that when I shove it up into a messy bun. Le sigh.

Doesn’t the leather look so smooth and buttery? And, they are only $39. What a steal!

Get the Look: Channeling Blair Waldorf

January 27, 2009

I have been obsessed with this shirt ever since I saw Miss Queen Bee wear it on GG. But, if you take a second to read the price tag, and to notice that it is no longer available on Net-a-Porter.com, then you will quickly realize that an alternate option is needed. Stat. And, as much as I love the original—backless and sleeveless—I decided to poke around for a more practical version of this blouse, but wanted to make sure that the gorgeous ruffles and girlish, feminine appeal remained. That is when I came across this affordable little number on metrostyle.com, which is a fun website to check out. What do you think of the Bill Blass top? Would you ever wear a ruffled blouse?

P.S. Check out this post and all my others on BFR!

Trend: Ombre!

Happy Tuesday, dear readers! Thought I would share with you my most recent post on Budget Fashion Report. I have been noticing the Ombre trend for a little while now and have yet to indulge, so I thought I would pull together some of my favorite, affordable pieces first and see what you all thought. Would love to know!
