‘Paris, Capital of Fashion’ Review: The City of Sartorial Love

Have you ever wondered how Paris became the undisputed epicenter of the fashion world? The short answer is, there’s no one specific reason, but in the Wall Street Journal’s review of the Museum at FIT’s Fall exhibit, you’ll find a few causes rooted in the city’s history and penchant for being “over-the-top” that explain how the story unfolds.

Celebrity Street Style — November

Most celebrities are lucky enough to be styled in the seasons’ hottest trends by their Hollywood stylists. While we can’t live the Hollywood life, we do take inspiration from our favorite celebs. Hollywood style is yours.

The Look – November

This month we took ourselves to Planet Blue for a fabulous shoot with so many adorable treasures. Everything was stunning, as were the prices for what you are getting! We had such a good time and had such a challenge deciding on what to shoot as there was so much that was so fabulous! These looks will serve you well and are versatile… Yay! Happy treasure shopping!

Counterfeits in the luxury watch industry are becoming more commonplace than you think…Even the savviest of shoppers have been known to be duped into buying counterfeit versions of their favorite luxury brand watches.

If you’re in the market, you’re going to want to read on to avoid possibly making a very expensive mistake in the purchase of your our own timeless timepiece!

The Look – October

This month we shot The Look at Free People…one of my favorites! We had a marvelous time with all the adorable treasures we found and they are all so wonderfully priced… From the flares to the utility pants, easy, timeless, simple tops and some very fun bags—each was casual adorable and so budget friendly!

The Look – September

This month we shot The Look at Neiman Marcus Northpark—the gem of the Neiman Marcus chain. I always refer to that store as Disneyland for clothes… and it absolutely lived up to that name. This is a departure from our usual version of The Look, in that we normally are aiming for style that is budget friendly for you to put looks together. And we usually stay super casual. This time we did some casual but there are a few things dressier. The price points are higher, just to give you a heads up but I do think you will love what you see.

The Look – August

This month we took The Look to Madewell and had such a marvelous time with all the well-priced treasures you see here! Each piece stands on its own merit as worthy of owning to mix and match with goodies you already own or to create the looks you are seeing. Each look we put together is a show-stopper and we hope you will love it all as much as we do!

So, check out what we have found and know you will love and act on it ASAP as this only goes for two weeks, then back to full price and worse—it goes in an absolute flash! Happy shopping!!
