Palazzo Pant Party!

Welcome to the party!! I am always on the hunt for clothes that are not only super cute, but also comfortable to wear. Palazzo pants are the solution! They are so chic, and I always see the most stylish waif-like women in France and Italy sporting these flowy pants. I have been on the search for a pair to call my own for quite a while… I definintely wanted a print, but something classic enough to wear in a multitude of situations.. so when I spotted these Patterson J. Kincaid beauties at Neiman’s it was love at first sight! I kept my outfit simple to mimic the beautiful easiness that emminates from the pants themselves, and topped it off with the Pièce de résistance, my Lily Dawson Designs necklace, which can take any outfit from drab to fab in seconds. Seriously, I wore this necklace out to a food truck fest (so yummy!) recently, and I got no less than a hundred compliments on the necklace. Everyone was completely shocked when I told them of the $35.00 price tag– unreal! So get over to her website and load up on some amahhhhzing accessories.

If you’re looking to keep it comfy and chic too, check out these Palazzo Pant Picks. Enjoy!

Peplum en Printemps


I have completely fallen for the Peplum trend (along with everyone else…), and after more than a year of seeing this flared-out phenomenon hit the runways, I am convinced this look is here to stay! I just think that the silhouette is so futuristic yet still chic and feminine enough to wear any day. Plus, for those of us with a little more “hip-action” than desired, peplum is the perfect way to accentuate your waist without drawing attention to the love handles (more serendipity’s please!). Every item that I have chosen has a little bit of quirk (which I love in fashion), and there’s a piece for every price point from baller to beggar-child (and obviously I am the latter since all of my money has gone to shoes lately).

Manoush: Maestro’s of detail and Marais MUST.

Clockwise: Tiger Dress . Floral Shift . Strapless Eyelet . Aqua Caplet . Parrot Frock .
 

I am such a huge fan of Manoush! When I lived in Paris, and would stay at Jean-Pierre’s flat in the Marais, I would walk along the famed Rue de Vielle du Temps gaping at all of the fabulous fashion the street had to offer. Manoush, without fail, would stop me dead in my tracks as their windows always sported the most beautifully appointed and meticulously detailed garments full of whimsy and femininity. I am such a sucker for a lil frill and all of these dresses certainly fit the bill, though they are not the most wallet friendly. Personally, I believe their scrupulously hand-crafted clothes are works of art in themselves, so I think that justifies buying at least one… which I did (the Tiger one at the top left) and I cannot wait until it arrives!

Country Club Stylin’


We all know I love me a some Ralph… but I must say it is a bit disconcerting how large their iconic Polo Pony has grown through out the years. I can remember back in the beginning of my prep-tastic prime (the early 90’s) the embroidered pony was no larger than a push pin… but I guess even Ralph Lauren has given in to the millenial mantra of our generation; “Bigger is Better”.

I won’t poke too much fun at Mr. Lauren though, because I am forever a Prepster at heart, and I am loving these updated polos from RL and more!

What will you be sporting to the Polo fields this Sunday?
