unconventional crossing.

May 26th, 2011 — 12:05pm

it appears that i’ve gone boho chic for the summer and i’ve been splurging on some silver accessories to play the part.  my eyes have been drawn to pamela love’s eye catching silver jewelry inspired by a mix of modern new york style and traditional southwestern design all in one.  i’ve been obsessed with her ever popular cross ring to wear with my mixture of silver cuffs…a perfect pair if you ask me!

you can never have enough maxi dresses to get you through this summer–that’s a total of 122 maxis if you include september.  reality check!  i probably won’t be wearing one every day but i’ve hand selected a few to update my wardrobe.  what’s a girl to do but stock up on tolani’s latest collection of maxis.  my eyes are fixated on the printed, flowy, boho chic design that’s making my heart go pitter-patter.  not to mention, mesmerizing.  style it with your favorite little blazer and wedges or throw on your floppy straw hat for an afternoon brunch with the gals.

slightly mysterious.

May 18th, 2011 — 10:53am

let’s face it, maxi dresses can be a bore if you throw it on and walk out of the house without some effort in how you put yourself together.  i suggest experimenting with various accessories including off-the-shoulder tees, boho vests, wide belts, and crochet-like sweaters.  probably not the accessories you were brainstorming about but it’s time to break out of your comfort zone and think outside the box.  i snagged my essential summer sweater earlier this week to drape over my monaco dress.  there’s something sexy yet mysterious about a sheer top that will drive others wild when they’re trying to figure what you’re wearing underneath.

a few weeks ago, my sister was dying to put her taste buds to the test at there’s no place like home.  from the outside, you would never guess that you would feel like you were sitting in someone’s backyard at their country home because we were located nearly five steps outside a busy street.  but after a long day of working, it was nice to be able relax from all the hustle and bustle of the downtown city life.  we sat next to the fountain that was sitting in the middle of the koi pond where all i could really hear was the water dripping, the family of koi smacking against the water, and the sounds of laughter from our restaurant neighbors.  ohhhhh, i couldn’t help but notice the mouth watering meatloaf dish the woman had ordered but i opted for the light chicken pomodoro sandwich with waffle cut fries.  hunger satisfaction!

lately, i’ve been a sucker for anything bohemian and tolani’s maxi skirt is just what the doctor ordered.  the playful blue, gold paisley pattern has a summery feel and will make you want to twirl as you walk down the street.  if you’re not all about the full length dresses, maxi skirts are a fresh change of pace to follow this summer’s trend .  you’ll look effortlessly chic with your little tank to your off-the-shoulder sweater.  at top this off with matt bernson pique wedges.

blue spikes.

as a long time fan of turquoise, i’m thrilled that it’s one of this summer’s trend.  but it’s no surprise as it always makes an appearance in the fashion scene year after year.  how can anyone simply resist those eye poppin’ blues?   i suggest rockin’ a statement piece that can be spotted a mile away….like this spike necklace i found in la.  flaunt this necklace with a summer look with your white tunic & denim shorts, or show off your bohemian flare and wear a tube maxi dress, or stick with the basic and wear an all black ensemble for an evening night out.  you’ll fall head over heels.
