I have been so excited by The Great Gatsby movie that will hit movie theaters next month. As an Accessories Expert, I'm very excited about the movie as fashion and specifically the accessories will have a dominant place throughout the film directed by Baz Luhrmann. Tiffany & Co worked with Academy Award winning costume and production designer, Catherine Martin to create this world of glitz and glamour through its stunning jewelry adorned by a number of characters within the picture. Enjoy this video which shows the jewels and a number of behind the scenes info that will prep you for this film. In addition, if you're in NYC, take a moment to check out the window displays that were unveiled this week in order to showcase the Jazz Era elegance that is throughout this movie!
Seafoam inspirations came from Sue Wong's ostrich feather dress which is elegant and perfect for the upcoming holiday season. The ice nature of this particular hue is perfect for ensuring that you look like a winter princess as you head to events! With that said, I'm loving this hue in latte bowls that are available at Anthropologie and are perfect for chili, icecream and more. In the bedroom, Kohl's continues with this crisp hue in bedding that outfits your room. In your living space, I suggest an ottoman to optimize seating while also including files that are important to you. No need to look at icky file cabinets when you have this item from Ballard Designs. Place containers around your space to collect odds and ends with Alex Marshall Studios. Lighting become fun with these lamps from Macy's and during the holiday season, you can lounge on this fab Hahn Sofa which completes the look.
I love wearing simple pieces that wear well and have an interesting pop factor! This Peacock Racerback Tunic Top is super cute over jeans and leggings! I love that it is a cute white top that has the peacock feathers on it. This look is perfect when you think about warm summers and wanting to wear something amazing without have to do too much to it. Of course you can also put a cute chain or choker with this to complete the look. There are two other design elements that make this a great piece. The ruching on the neckline makes a bit of an elegance to this look so that it definitely looks casual but can also be slightly dresed up as well. In addition, I love the wide band at the bottom which allows you to play with the length of this as well. I love Forever 21 as I am guaranteed to always find something that looks amazing for a day but at the same time, I also know that I will always leave with much more than what I had intended to get. Ah what's better than visiting the store and purchasing and then being able to do so online as well?
At any given time someone is strutting on the runway wearing something fabulous and during this portion of Australian Fashion Week, Leonard Salinas' collection hit the catwalk with amazing pops of color that you can definitely see in this shot. First off, I love his silhouettes and he definitely knows how to show some of our best parts - it's nice to bring back that old elegance and to mix it up with interesting embellishment and also amazing rich hues! This is not for the faint at heart.
Now I have to say, that this beautiful grey/silver piece caught my eye since it is one of my favorite colors to wear and I loved the detailing on the neck as well. I wasn't sure if it was something that I would personally wear but I think that this shapes the body well and would be amazing to wear to an opening at a gallery, a cocktail event launching a book that just hit the New York Times or any other occassion that calls upon us to step it up when it comes to our attire. But I think the magic in this piece comes when this model gives us another view.
The back of this dress took me off guard completely and instantly this become a piece that I want in my collection ASAP. I love that this simple look completely makes this dress go from safe to daring and yet your inner Audrey never has to wonder if this is appropriate to wear to the functions mentioned above. This dress is perfect to pair with a necklace that is intended to be worn down your back and of course you hair down is perfect but having it in a messy updo of sorts wouldn't be a bad idea. If you love this piece and the peeks that you can see in the background, see more from this show and others on Coutorture!
