    Matching Separates & KEEPSAKE The Label

    “Morning Shadows” top // shorts

    There is nothing like investing in well-made matching separates to keep your closet efficient and versatile.  With a high-end aesthetic yet affordable price point, Aussie brand KEEPSAKE (known for their clean lines and high quality fabrics) is one of my very favorites.

    Is It Blue and Black?! Or White?!

    When it comes to today’s look from Zara, the answer is both.

    (Just in case you don’t know what I’m referring to… Check out this crazy dress debate.  I feel like this is the beginning of a real life Hunger Games and we are all about to be divided into two tribes. I am team white and gold, obviously!)

    But I digress…

    #Oscars2015 Spotlight: RAUWOLF

    photo (1)

    I don’t know what it was about this year’s Oscars, but most of the dresses left me totally cold. The exception was Naomi Watts, who invariably wows me year after year with her fashion risk-taking.  Her Armani dress with a black bandeau was an inspiring choice in and of itself, but what really grabbed my attention was her understated yet exquisitely architectural clutch.

    Meet: German-born, New York-based designer Kristine Johannes’ Rauwolf. (Rauwolf= her mother’s maiden name. Love.) Made in an Italian factory, Raulwolf clutches are made entirely of plexiglass and metal.  They are modern and luxurious, and with their graphic shapes and glittering or matte finishes they create the effect of carrying a large jewel around all night. These sleek gems make their leather, satin, and beaded counterparts look downright commonplace.

    Evidently I am not the only one taken with the designer.  Guess who else rocked a Rauwolf?

    Back On The Wagon…

     

    The Gypsy Wagon, that is!

    gw

    The moment I saw this dress at the Dallas boutique Gypsy Wagon, I had to have it.  It skims over your curves like nightgown, and the vibrant-but-not-annoying colors brighten up your complexion. It is also a very versatile piece; you can wear it with sandals on the beach, or with boots and a moto jacket. I chose to pair it with GW’s chambray button-down shirt since it was breezy out.  Completing the look is this awesome hat by Lovely Bird, made out of felt– not wool.  I have a phobia of all things “matchy-matchy,” but I LOVE how the beaded band around the hat looks like it was made to be worn with the dress.

    (Chunky boots/basically stilts are by Sydney Brown and are handmade of vegan leather.  Shop some of her awesomely unique collection here.)

    ** It should be noted that the hilarious and gorgeous Chrissy Teigen also loves and wears this very Lovely Bird hat (scroll all the way down for proof).  So basically I am one step closer to being her.  I just thought I should point that out.

    Eyelet and Eyes

    photo
    I seeeee you!  While I love these mint-colored, cartoonishly playful pants: I do recognize that they are not an all-occasion piece. For instance, maybe leave them at home while on a first date (men already don’t know where to look!), but by all means bust them out for a fun time checking out a new art gallery or dancing with girlfriends.  I recommend keeping the rest of the ensemble girly/classic/clean: a crisp white tee or a fitted, black, long-sleeved sweater–or, in my case, a super-feminine, eyelet, off-the-shoulder top and nude pumps.

    Bonus: I’m in love with this top and can’t wait to wear it on the beach with a long skirt… And such a steal for only $58!

    Acid Trip

    unnamed-2

    One pattern-play move that is not for the faint of heart: mixing acid-wash denim (word to my jean muse, Kelly Kapowski) with a tie-dyed top of a similar color scheme.  It’s my new favorite way to keep things casual yet very interesting.  Whatcha think… Yay, or nay?  Regardless, you can get the look here:
