Sleeveless Trench

Hey guys!  I wanted to share this simple look I wore a few weeks back.

I think it’s pretty obvious I have quite the fascination with sleeveless trenches/blazers (as seen here, here, here and here).  I love how effortlessly a sleeveless trench can add dimension to just about any outfit, from a tee-shirt and jeans, to a feminine little dress.  Versatile and always chic, the sleeveless trench is just the thing to help transition your style from summer to fall. Not to mention, it’s a great way for Miami-ans to embrace fall outerwear without suffering from heatstroke!

What are your favorite summer to fall transition pieces?

Stars and Stripes

Happy Birthday America!! I feel so blessed to live in a country that promotes liberty and the pursuit of happiness to all. A country of citizens always willing to shed blood and tears in honor of their freedoms.  A country in which even an immigrant, such as myself, may practice their freedom of speech and host a blog in which they may express and opine on any subject they very damn well please!

Now, as you can see, I  am feeling uber patriotic today, but let me remind myself that the subject I very damn well please to write about is fashion!  So let’s talk about that….

The most apropos word to describe my excitement when Farfetch  asked me to share my “Stars and Stripes” themed look with them was FIREWORKS!!

Farfetch is a fashion hub made up of over 300 of the worlds best curated boutiques everywhere from Paris, New York and Milan to Bucharest, Riyadh and Seattle AND my #1 favorite site to shop all things designer luxury fashion!  One of my favorite aspects of the Farfetch site is that in addition to carrying goods from luxury and influential designers we all know and love, it also carries items by emerging and experimental labels in its LAB section.  I love learning about new designers and what inspires them.

Be it for purchases or just plain inspiration, I find myself browsing Farfetch’s fabulous worldwide boutiques at least once a week.  One of my favorite styling exercises is curating my own looks based on items from the site.  It makes me feel like a jet setting fashionista shopping all around the world! Today in the spirit of the Fourth of July holiday, I have styled a “Stars and Stripes” themed look to share with you all!

Check it out below and of course, my very own “Stars and Stripes” #OOTD!

Fancy Wednesday: “Clutch for Fun”

Okay, how irresistible has this fun and quirky clutch trend become!?!? I have to admit I was horrified by Moschino’s take on this whole trend, but once the quirky, whimsical geniuses behind designers such as Charlotte Olympia and Sophia Webster put their spin on this fun trend it became too much for my fancy to resist!

This week my “Fancy” is being tickled by the silly little accessories you see below.

I picked my favorites “Clutch for Fun”! What do you think about this trend?

Palm Friday

If you follow my blog and/or have recently flipped through any fashion magazine or catalog then you’ve probably noticed that palm print is pretty much EVERYTHING right now.

I for one am currently obsessed with all “tropical” prints including fruit, flamingo and lobster prints! My attention and affection for palm print is nothing new; you’ve seen these palm print harem style pants before here and here, but I wanted to wear these über comfy pantalones to work.  Palm print has a very casual, “reminiscent of tropical surroundings with frozen drinks” vibe. Can you tell I’m in Happy Friday spirits? So in an effort to “business casualize” the palm print I went for this lace and leather detail peplum top, a statement necklace and simple black sandals.

I kinda love this look! What do you think? Happy Friday!
