Gilded Lily

24 Oct

I’m a Leo and for us there can never be enough gold! HaHa! So you know I am soooo (I refuse to say “totes” lol) loving this Balmain top. This piece can easily be worn during the day or night. I would pair with a pair of  jeans with a slight “boyfriend” feel but not too baggy and a pair of cute pumps. For a night out on the town , however, I would “gild the lily” so to speak by introducing a pair of gold jeans into the mix. Add golden open-toe sandals and accessories and you will feel like the Queen of the Night! Read on to shop the pieces!!!

I’m A Rock Star

I’m a Rock Star! … Well, at least I can dress like it! This is for all the sexy rocker wives out there! The sterling silver glove was the inspiration for this set. I am absolutely in love with it.

My Top Picks From Karl Lagerfeld’s Collection For Macy’s

24 Aug

Karl Lagerfeld, who has designed for Balmain, Chloe, Fendi, and Chanel, now includes Macy’s to his impressive repertoire. Mr Lagerfeld has designed a 45 piece collection for the Macys brand which is due in just a few days. I have taken a look of the full collection and made my picks on what I feel are the best looks. I will definitely be picking up several pieces from the collection on August 31 when it hits 235 Macy’s nationwide as well as macys.com. Prices will be between $50 and $170 which are basically give-aways considering who they were designed by. Some of my favorite pieces from the collection include some of the tweed and faux leather separates as well as the tees containing images of Mr Lagerfeld himself.
