Julia Restoin Roitfeld

You're probably not familiar with this name, but she's basically fashion royalty.   Her mother is the editor-in-chief of French Vogue and her father a successful business man.  Besides her amazing good looks, Julia is a working model and has a small art-direction firm in New York City.  Growing up in the midst of fashion shoots, stylists and photographers something was bound to rub off.  She's recently been named the new face of Lancome and her campaign should start making it's way to the pages by spring.  I think she's someone to watch in the ever evolving world of fashion and I hope you find her interesting as well...xoxo

Love me some sequin!!

As you can see by the name of my blog, I am a big fan of sequins.  I love how unexpected it can be.  We really haven't seen so much buzz about sequins since the 80's.  Back then it was all about the over the top, more is better look.  I'm sure we've all seen the bad eighties hair, with over sized shoulder pads, and a really bad disco ball jacket.  Wearing sequins in today's world, seems to be more laid back, more fun and way less pretentious.  So, how do you wear sequins, you ask?  Anyway you want!  There aren't any rules, really.  But I think that the only line I would follow is, pairing it with different textures.  Try t-shirts with sequin pants, or jeans with a jacket.  Whatever you do, just be fearless and own it! Have fun...xoxo

Favorite Things...

In the midst of so many amazing designers, fashions and accessories it's easy to get lost and confused on what's a forever piece and what's a "right now" trend.  In trying to find your personal style, your bound to make mistakes and have some regrets.  But always remember to be true to who you are not only as a person but also in what your day to day activities are.  Fashion and style aren't about being a slave to the trends, but about having fun and dressing for self expression.  Once you do and own your look, it doesn't matter what the pages of Vogue say.  Trust me, yes I love Vogue, but it's about guidance and luxe rather than desperate page turning trying to find the next trend to waste your money on.  With all this said, I'd like to share with you what my favorite things are.  No matter what the trends show, I always go back to these pieces.  Hope you like...xoxo

Latest Obsession

Okay, I have a new obsession.  I've recently been into stacking bracelets.  I like the look of "junking" up the arm.  I also prefer fine jewelry (gold/diamonds) vs just any type of metal but, with that said, it takes time and money to start and keep collecting pieces.  I would suggest to anyone that's looking to start a collection, to first sit down and figure out what you like and dislike.  Do you like gold tones vs white tones?  Are you a fine jewelry collector or costume jewelry hound?  There are some beautiful costume pieces that can be extremely expensive.  Think vintage Chanel or Hermes.  Regardless of what you decide, try to stay as classic as possible.  This obsession can get ridiculous and you want to be able to wear what you have for years to come.

A few designers that offer many different styles are Sydney EvanRoseark and Jennifer Meyer.  They are all based out of Los Angeles and have a nice selection of high and low end pieces.  You can find their creations at Barneys and Roseark itself.  Or you can try some online retailers.  Either way good luck on your journey, hope you find what you're looking for.  xoxo

Happy Labor Day!

Hope everyone is enjoying the Labor day weekend.  With the summer coming to an end I came across some pictures that I think depict the serene, hot, soft days of the season.  Hope you enjoy and have a safe Labor day.  xoxo
