Red Hot Summer

Dress: BCBG (old) . Shoes: Kate Spade . Bag: Letty (last seen here) . Nails: Essie ‘lilacism’ Necklace: Danielle Stevens

So I don’t know about you ladies, but for me wearing red is like an instant mood lifter, and a surefire attention getter. I love to don the color for formal events, as it typically stands out amongst the sea of long black gowns, and conservative cocktails dresses. The shade looks great ON EVERYONE (yes even red-heads- ex.here) but if you’re not into the red hot, head-to-toe look, it also works fabulously as an accent piece (think red scarf, handbag, or just a swipe of red lipstick). However, if you’re looking to be a bit more bold and bright at your next affair grab one of these gorg dresses, and you’ll be a defininte standout at any soiree.

P.S. The Bottega Veneta gown is my dream dress so for any generous readers out there, my bday is coming up and I am a size 2. Thanks! xoxo, S

Move to Stripe

I must say, that stripes are something that will ALWAYS be in style. From the classic Breton stripe to the dapper pin stripe, and even throwing some chevron stripes into the mix, you really can’t go wrong. Summer is almost upon us, and my obsession with BRIGHT and BOLD colors is growing stronger as the days grow longer. I really love everything on this week’s list as every item is so fun, punchy, and begging for me to take it on a tropical getaway.  So splurge on some stripes and know that this trend will be one you can always count on.

#If I Were A Billionaire: Girly girl edition

This week I am allll about these fanastically feminine colors! From pink, to coral, to purple, and violet-they are inundating the Wednesday Wishlist! I am loving them as separates but I adore them when color-blocked. Wear them as you choose, just please indulge in this supreme girly-ness!

1. J. Crew No.2 Skirt
This skirt is ON SALE For $99 PLUS J. Crew is having a promotion– EXTRA 30% OFF (use code: OURTREAT) BUY NOW PEOPLE, if it’s not in your size- find a good tailor. HELLO $70! Okay, now go, buy.
2. Juicy Couture Studded Cuff
Another fabulous sale item! Juicy accessories are usually bold and almost always on the girly side, but I like how they edged this up a little with the studs. And pink gets my mark every time.
3. BCBG Strapless Dress
I am obsessed with this dress. I am a long time fan of BCBG (like since middle school-long time), and the brand has grown so much over those (cough, many) years. This dress screams “Take me to Hawaii stat!”, and I wish I was currently lei’d up at a luau, wearing this amazing frock, about to indulge in some tuna poke. Aloha!
4. River Island Bandeau Top // 5. River Island Bikini Bottom
I love these colors together, mint is sort of my go to color when I cheat on pink these days. I love these style tops since I am beyond flat and hate tan lines, it’s perfect. With spring break right around the corner, I think we all need a much deserved vacay, so scoop this SUPER AFFORDABLE bikini up and hit the beaches.
6. Kate Spade Jewel Studs
I think simple studs are so feminine and work in a multitude of outfits and occasions, I really find them to be timeless. Plus this color and slightly oversized shape is simply LOVELY, which is pretty much how I feel about EVERYTHING Kate Spade does.
7. Illesteva Mademoiselle Sunglasses
I cannot get over how freaking chic these sunglasses are! I love their deep purple color and flawless shape. I haven’t found a retailer locally yet, but I am dying to try them on!!
8. Anya Hindmarch Clutch
This clutch is so ideal for spring and summer it seriously is haunting my dreams. I live for this color and the clutch itself is made out of matte-rubber which means  it will be super durable if you drop it during a polo match or some drunk 19 year old drags her scuffed Loub over it. Perfect!
9. Dorothy Perkins Belt
OMG this belt is so great, it adds the perfect pop of color without overwhelming a look. Oh and did I mention it’s only $9.00? I can totally see myself wearing this with so many colors, yellow pants, coral skirt, navy dress- works in so many ways!
10. Holt + Lee Necklace
How MAJOR is this colorblock, mixed fabric necklace? I am lusting over it, but cannot justify the price over a “trend piece” . Well our saving grace, Refiner29, has the answer of course! Click here for the awesome DIY.
11. Nanette Lepore Multicolor Jacket
There is just so much going on with this jacket and I love it all!! The print is actually hundreds of tiny flowers amongst gorgeous pinks and purples and blues, and the cut is super flattering. This fabric though is really so beautiful, I would honestly make it into bedroom curtains (okay and probably get sick of it after a week, but whatever). #MUSTHAVETHISNOW
12. Kate Spade Bow Sandal
How adorable are these heels? I mean, obviously I am in love with all of the colors (such a sucker for correct color-blocking), but add the bow and I am sunk. These are beyond cute and look fabulous anywhere, from a cocktail party, to a movie date in jeans and a cozy sweater.
13. Alexander McQueen Skull Ring
I am really into skulls these days, I especially love it when they are done is an ironically feminine way, and it doesn’t get more feminine than pink and purple. It’s so great this ring walks the line of edgy and girly and pleases both customers- great gift for the rocker girl or fashionista.

So enjoy this wish list as it is a slight homage to one of my favorite movies ever, Mean Girls. 

YOU GO GLEN COCO!
Xoxo, S
