Last night, Zoe Saldana hit the red carpet of the MTV Movie Awards yesterday and although I would have loved to have seen something else in terms of her apparel (yes it's Givenchy but for me, there are a lot of trends - floral, cut outs, lace, etc placed together and it doesn't allow you to enjoy the overall sophostication of the look) - I love the accessories that she's rocked! While many awards shows are all about high glamour, there are also shows where people are able to dress laid back and to be a bit more casual. Both of these rings are amazing and a great way to take your look to whole other level even when you're casual (of course when you're dressed up, these rings are absolute stunners). Roll over the above images to find out about Graziela Gems and EF Collection.
If you've been reading my tweets you know of this season's addiction to Fashion Star mainly because of Glaudi's designer, Johana Hernandez. A few seasons ago, I remember seeing portions of her collection when she showed at LA Fashion Week and seeing her designs hit the runway on this show have definitely been a reminder to me on why her pieces are so phenom!
As an Accessories Expert, I'm also a fan of the fact that she not only rocks some serious accessories personally but she ensures her looks no matter how eye popping have them as well! Last night as she stood with the rest of the members of her team, she enjoyed massive bidding by all three retailers, Macy's, Saks and Express. Ultimately, Express picked up her beige and floral jumpsuits as well as adding in black.Of course I will continue to watch as she continues through the challenges and you'll find that at the conclusion of the season, there will be a recap of all of her designs with fab insights!

If you've been checking out your Twitter Feeds, you know that Comic-Con took over San Diego! With a number of people on panels, we had to take note of the uber stylish, Kerry Washington who was at the press conference panel to promote her new Quentin Tarantino film, “Django Unchained” with costars Walton Goggins, Don Johnson, Christoph Waltz and Jamie Foxx.
I fell in love with J. Mendel's full pleated floral skirt from his Resorrt 2013 collection. I love that she paired this fun skirt with a collared and sleeveless top from A.L.C. - who doesn't lover a femme look with a bit of edge on the side. I definitely love the apparel but I would tweak the accessories. Let's swap her red and purple belt which seems like a little bit of an after thought and pop on this black wide Lanvin bow belt. In addition, I find her heels to be a bit chunky but have fallen in love with a sleek stilleto that adds a twist to the rounded versus pointed toe debate - this boxed style by Giuseppe Zanotti. Slipping on this cigar ring adds another depth to the look by Melinda Maria. In terms of her beauty look, I love this high pony tail with a bit of a tease and a strong red lip is always a plus - I'm a huge fan of Dior Beauty and when it comes to a dark eye, I have been rocking Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner in Zero which is the perfect way to have rocker chic!
L-R: Walton Goggins, Don Johnson, Kerry Washington, Christoph Waltz and Jamie Foxx.
I think I would like the whole outfit more without the belt and the chunky platform pumps. A sleek stiletto pump like the Christian Louboutin classic “Pigalle” would have been a better choice, in my opinion.
She finished off with a teased ponytail and bright red lips.
You don't get any simpler than black and white! It's one of my favorite looks that always makes a statement no matter where you happen to be at the moment. Today's classic look which is getting shaken up with a modern twist is inspired by this shirt dress and sash combo available at . To get this look throughout your room, head over to Urban Outfitters where I'm loving this zig zag dress form whichis a great way for you to see how your outfit will look. The flower curtain is also an excellent touch as well. Finally the last item available at Urban Outfitters in this spread is from, Lomography La Sardina DXL Analogue Camera Bedding with amazing black and white prints from Ralph Lauren is the perfect way to lay in bed all day while inhaling Fornasetti Palazzo Candle which gives you a sense of architecture as well as a little bit of a Calgon moment!
As much as I love adding pops of color, every now and then I love the classic "black accessories". They're a great go to piece when you're not sure of what works or when you just want to go back to basics! With that being said, this Eva Varro floral top is perfect for this in between season as it's not only a great pop of hot pink, but it's a great item to wear over leggings. You can wear this to an after work event, running errands or anything where it's not necessary to seriously dress up. If you're in the city tonight and are a stylist, blogger or someone within fashion media, I would love for you to come to a Mixer that we're having at Coterie, a fashion trade show here in NYC at the Javits Center. It runs from 6 - 7pm and not only can you network and mingle but there will be cocktails and a chance to see the line and the showroom owner, Janine Weil, who works this line within her showroom - Janine Weil Ltd! We'll be at booth 5965 tonight so let me know if you will attend as we have limited space!
So our deck is done for the most part but I want to have planters! I want to add some floral pop to the deck and make it a bit of an oasis. Right now, I'm trying to decide which one will be the best for our upstairs deck. Whether you like them low and long or high in the air. Right now I'm debating on ceramics, wood and steel - it's a matter of what look you're going for on the deck.
Whether you're heading out for a summer wedding, having an event on your roofdeck or are going out for a nice dinner, there are times when you want to dress up! Since it's definitely getting toasty, make sure that you include a bit of whimsy and the sea within your look. I love this dress by DVF which has gorgeous layers and a great floral look. Since there are great neutrals, I love that you can pair this with Jimmy Choo's snakeskin shoes, Kate Spade's mother of pearl bracelet and this cute handbag! If you love this look, figure out ways that you can recreate this with other tones as well!
There are times when you want to lounge around your apartment and then maybe slip on jeans and a zippie to pick something up so that you can go back home. It may be the weekend or just some day in the week when you needed to take time for yourself! I say that this can be done in this super cute cami set by one of my favorite lingerie labels - Belabumbum! Yes we are in the final days of THINK CITRUS and fortunately, there are designers out there who are infusing this fragrant scent into their lines. I love the Garden Floral cami set and as sweet as it is, the citrus vibe is a welcoming look since it blends so well. I think this outfit puts you in the state of mind to relax and to ensure that you are properly being taken care of. Make sure you check out all the amazing finds on this site and when done - you'll want to order some great items that will make sure that your closet and drawers continue to look amazing and renewed.
I love showing a variety of fashion shows and those that were a fan of a previous blog of mine, Kitten Couture Blog, knew that I scoured the net looking for fashion shows. Today, courtesy of Yahoo and the AP, I present the Bio Fashion Show in Cali, Columbia last month. I love the pop of color and think that it is definitely interesting to present fashion in another way. I love the use of florals throughout this show.
