Fabulous Friday Find!!!

I have a weak spot for anything that resembles the art deco period. This week I am dying over J. Crew's Thin Deco Bangle by Lulu Frost! 


J. Crew Thin Deco Bangle by Lulu Frost $39.99
Layer it up and feel free to use the navy as a neutral and spice it up with a bright pink or yellow bracelet in your arm party!

Trending: Tuxedo Blazer

This winter season, menswear is making the way into every fashionistas closet in the form of a tuxedo blazer. This particular trend is on my must-have list and it can be done in a multitude of ways. Here is my breakdown of how to wear, where to buy and how to mix it up. 


I personally am fond of the more traditional white tuxedo blazer with a black contrast lapel. Here are a few that have caught my eye: 


This blazer by Tibi is especially chic because of the leather detailing. It takes it up a notch and gives a nod to the leather trend as well! 
Tuxedo Jacket with Leather Trim Lapel by Tibi $495 
This blazer at Express is a more cost conscious version without losing the quality of the fabric that you want. P.S.: it's an additional 20% off right now. 

Express Crepe Satin Contrast Lapel Jacket $69.99  
DO wear your tuxedo blazer over a dress with tights and booties for a dinner date! 
ASOS Petite Exclusive Tuxedo Blazer $99.99
Feel free to mix it up a bit and wear the tuxedo blazer in different fabrics such as this velvet version by Trina Turk. (She is one of my all time favorite designers and all of her pieces that I own have lasted me YEARS!) I also love how she paired it with a ruffled blouse and shorts! TrĂ©s chic! 
Trina Turk Gaston Blazer $298.80
Another huge color for this season is cobalt blue and it has been spotted on a number of different tuxedo blazers as well! DO wear it with tuxedo pants as an unexpected alternative for a dress. 
McQ Alexander McQueen Royal Blue Blazer $625
Go ahead and take the plunge with a sassy tuxedo blazer this winter!

Fabulous Friday Find!!!

Have you ever been walking along and BAM! there before you is the cutest outfit on a fashionista walking by! Well, it happened to me this week and I couldn't help but stop the girl and question her about her coat. She was a cute girl from Memphis who had purchased her oh-so-cute coat from a boutique and she walked away. I made it my mission to track down the coat. Ta-da! I found it. I bestow upon you the Houndstooth Bow Coat by Tulle. And to my amazement, its a steal! 

Tulle Houndstooth Bow Coat $84.99

Fabulous Friday Find!!!

Looking for the perfect gift this holiday season? This will definitely make a statement and give delight to any chocolate lover!! Or as they say in France, "Chocolat!!". I jumped up and down in my kitchen when I saw this in my Williams & Sonoma catalog: 


La Maison du Chocolat Assorted Chocolat Gift Box $95

This is THE BEST chocolate in my opinion. They are based out of Paris and there are only a handful of locations around the world and sadly not a single one in Georgia, so to have it featured in Williams & Sonoma is fabulous! They are delectable and beautifully packaged...the perfect choice! 

Happy Holiday Shopping!! 

au revoir,

B is for Brian Atwood

One day, my child is going to have a very unique answer when the teacher says, "Children, B is for....." and my child yells out, "Brian Atwood!" I have been a DEVOTED fan of his for several years now, only bringing my special Atwoods out for very special occasions. (This coming from the girl that wears her SIGNED Louboutins like Nikes.) Well, today I spotted a shoe perfect for the fall holiday season! Hello Thanksgiving dinner! 
And then....I choked! I saw the price tag and it said (drumroll please) $325!!!!! It is Brian Atwood's very own diffusion line available at Saks called B Brian Atwood. These fabulous metallic sandals with leather leaves layered across the straps are phenomenal! The PERFECT fall shoe. I neeeeeeeeeed them! There are several other shoes in his current collection that are pretty fabulous, also. 
B Brian Atwood Metallic Feather Sandal $350
B Brian Atwood Suede Fringe Ankle Boots $350








Ladies, make sure you check these out! Currently, they are only available online at Saks.com, but are coming to stores soon. Like I always say, "Happy Feet make a Happy Girl." ;-)

Brrrrrrrrreath-taking fashion!

Baby, its cold outside! Don't let the weather bog down your inner fashionista! Let the weather inspire you to don cold-weather accessories with a splash of sass. Take these earmuffs for example: 
Lanvin Jeweled Fur Earmuffs $1,255 
Why not upgrade your traditional earmuffs for fur and sparkles? These earmuffs could take you from the slopes to a fancy dinner in no time! These would cost you a pretty penny but I see a DIY project opportunity! I already have a pair of fur earmuffs so I might just wrap the headband in satin ribbon, add a bow and a pretty vintage brooch! Voila!! Lanvin inspired earmuffs! 

And don't let your ears have all the fun! Give your hands some bedazzled gloves! 
ASOS Moschino Scattered Crystal Gloves $206
ASOS Dents Suede Stud Glove $59
ASOS Dents Feather Bow Gloves $97
After seeing all of these posh cold weather accessories, I am super excited for chilly nights by the fire! Now, when your mother tells you to cover up, you can do so in style!

The Tortoise Wins the Race....


This fall I am obsessed with tortoise shell jewelry! It all started with an innocent browsing session on www.baublebar.com when I stumbled upon these fabulous tortoise shell bracelets! And Michael Kors took the obsession all the way... It takes arm party to an all new high for me! Forget my typical wrap around leather bracelets and bangles! Tortoise is where its at! 

Tortoise Shell and Gold Arm Party

Michael Kors Buckle Bangle $85

Michael Kors Status Link Necklace $275

BaubleBar.com Lace Shell Cuff $34







Tory Burch Hexagon Link Clip Earrings $125
Treat tortoise as a neutral, mix with gold accents and voila! you've got a really rich look that goes from day to night! Just remember...slow and steady wins the race. ;-)

H&M Collaboration with Versace!!

H&M has done it again with a must-have designer collaboration that will send Versace fans into a frenzy camping outside the door to ensure an article of Versace comes home with them. Beginning November 19th in select stores, the Versace+H&M collection will be available. The collection will included menswear, womenswear, accessories and homeware. Think iconic Versace with lively prints, studded leather, luxurious gold, and of course the occasional lion's head. 




My personal favorite piece is the piece that Donatella wore at the end of her Versace Menswear fashion show. It is a rock 'n roll inspired gold studded black leather dress with zipper detail up the back. Does it get anymore sexy and glamorous?! 


Donatella wears one of the pieces for H&M

Here is a sneak peak at the pieces from this collection that I will be gushing over: 
Oh, it gets better. This isn't a one time deal for H&M. Donatella will also be releasing a Spring 2012 collection on January 19th with H&M. Start lining up now! It's definitely going to be fierce!

Dress Like A Duchess

The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate as we all know and love her, has been dishing out some fabulous classic looks. The most recent is her get-up for her UNICEF appearance in Copenhagen. 


Prince William and Kate for UNICEF
This burgundy military inspired coat is by L.K. Bennett and the suede boots are as well. Unfortunately the fabulous belt is not included, it is paired with a different one at the store. Good news is, the coat is now 20% off and there is a store in Atlanta! 


L. K. Bennett Ami Coat in Burgundy
The UK based store has started opening US locations and the Atlanta location was its first! 


L.K. Bennett 
Phipps Plaza
3500 Peachtree Rd
Suite No. 1030B
Atlanta, GA 30326
404-991-5850

The Duchess obviously loves this store given her propensity to opt for her L.K. Bennett nude platform pumps in Canada and you will see why when you shop there. It screams Kate! and is very British. It is not overly expensive and they regularly have sales. Pop into one of their stores today and dress like a Duchess!
