Color Spray.

Some photos don't need a lot of text. I've been told I'm a writer yet I don't like to write unnecessarily. Having said that, I'll keep this simple since I'm traveling and want to enjoy my time doing so. (I'll try my best to keep you updated with ensembles as I move about ;-)

I saw this wall when I first got in town and just had to shoot it. Its really much larger and filled with art. I hope to shoot more at this location (so I'll have an excuse to buy something new to wear for it. LOL)

.....and yes. I've finally broken out the Birkin. I've really not carrying it much because as you know, EVERYBODY KNOWS THIS BAG! Ha! But I said the heck with it. It's super functional to travel with as it holds so much. (This is a 35cm). 

I do want a Kelly. Actually, a Kelly was my first choice.....but what color to get....Thoughts? Let me know!

The Cape Chronicles.

I like them. 
I like them very much. 
Give me a good one and let my styling imagination run wild. 

How to wear one? Easily! They go with almost everything. This one I wore with all black (minus the boots) because of the busy floral pattern. On the other hand, I'm not afraid to pair it with prints as long as it doesn't clash. 

Oh the fun you can have with fashion and style.....

(Cape - Alter'd State. Boots - Calvin Klein)

A Little Boho, A Little 20's.

Recently I did a shoot for Fashion for Philanthropy's (FPF) benefit for Dress for Success. Myself and two fellow bloggers came together to choose outfits that we would wear for the holidays. This one, one of my picks for a more laid back holiday gathering. The jeans are an ombre metallic (<3) paired with a wispy boho top and topped off with a hat a fell for. The feather on the side and shape just got me. 

If you missed the Fall FPF benefit sale fret not. There will be another in the Spring.

All Black, sleeveless capes. You just can't go wrong...

...really. You can't. Everybody knows that all black is slimming. To me, that's just an added bonus. The biggest factor to me is that it's simplified dressing at its best, super chic and nearly fail proof.....Just let's not do any Batman type capes....although Anna Della Russo probably could...

But for the rest of us who may not want to look like Batman comes to (insert whatever city you live in here), work a simple sleeveless cape over your all black ensemble. Something to break up the monotony so to speak. You can also accessorize this look until your hearts content (Think Iris Apfel). Trust me, I've done it and it works. Just be mindful that you don't go multi-color accessory overload. Keep it coordinated. You always want to have some form of tie-in with a look to make it work. 

That said, go for it! Let's see what you do with your all black ;-)

Tee & denim - Banana Republic

The Jumpsuit Chronicles.

I could wear a jumpsuit everyday. It really is for me, the easiest way to chicdom. (Yes I just made up that word but it works ;-) This one is by Tommy Hilfiger. And if you've been watching the shows, you know that he in my eyes has reinvented the brand. Once a hot commodity in the early 90's, especially with the hip hop culture coming into its own, Hilfiger was THE brand to be seen in. Then came the 2000's and those rumored comments that we won't get into. 

Now, Hilfiger is putting on spectacular shows and making some must have pieces. 
I'm all about a good jumpsuit and this one is such a bold color. I'll wear this well into winter. How? With it being sleeveless? Simple! Throw a black turtleneck (or any turtleneck that complements the color of the suit) and you're ready to go. This is also great with a moto jacket tossed on over it. 
You can dress it up or make it casual like I did with sneakers. 
If you think you can't pull off a jumpsuit, you're wrong. The key if finding the right fit. The right fit is everything in any piece of clothing but jumpsuits in particular. Make sure if fits right in the hips, waist and shoulders and all is well!
Be chic Loves!

What I'm wearing:
Jumpsuit - Tommy Hilfiger
Sneakers - Adidas Originals
