Here's the thing — I'm a pretty anti-sequel kind of gal. Why mess with perfection? Filming for Sex and the City 2 has begun, and though I may be skeptical about the movie, I'm not about the wardrobe. And really, that's half (more than half?) of what made the first SATC movie faboo. So . . . I can be swayed. Especially after seeing Carrie's first outfit from the film: what appears to be a Halston Heritage white dress, gold glitter Louboutins, gold mirrored aviators, and Carrie strutting like an Egyptian with her stunning multi-faceted necklace. What a stunner. Jump on this new jewelry trend before it hits theaters.
As much as I love blingy, girly jewelry, it's always good to cleanse the palette. Go against the grain this Spring with geo jewels. Clean, severe, and often spherical, these pieces deliver a serious message. Soften the hard edges with something airy and romantic, casualize with holey jeans, or do the master cleanse against a simple white tee.
2009. Wow — this decade is almost over! Crazy. I usually spend January detoxing, catching up on all the award nominated films, and prepping for Fashion Week in February. It's a hard month to get motivated, for sure. Alas, you always want to start the year off right. While I'm also on a shopping freeze, still recovering from the holidays, here are some items that have me fantasizing. A healthy mix of Resort and Winter goodies. Oh, Happy New Year!
True, turquoise is associated with Summer breezes and Mai Tais. But I'm all about the unexpected. Rebel against the season and don shocking turquoise. I guarantee it will liven your day, and the person across from you on the bus. Resort wears are in full force so there's an abundance of this bright hue to cure your mood.
With the recent revival of costume jewelry, everyone can look their Hollywood best without breaking the bank. Personally, I like to mix high and low fashion jewelry to create an eclectic party look. In my make-believe world, I would pair these decadent Missoni Floral Drop Earrings ($420) with some funky stacked bangles from Forever 21 to temper its delicate nature. I say go for the gusto and pick one dramatic piece to complement your look. The rest of your jewels should take backseat and complement the showstopper. Get it? Got it? Good.
This is why I adore Chloe Sevigny: While everyone else at the grand opening party of Fontainebleau in Miami Beach showed up in fancy frocks, Chloe played by her own rules. She downplayed her olive corset mini dress with a cool cropped denim jacket and set her feet apart with leopard ankle-strap sandals. Finishing touches are a lucite bangle and a Chanel bag. Oh, and I'm loving her burnt orange lips. Chloe's done it again: Easy, breezy, yet dazzling.
Head to CelebStyle for lots more celebrity street style!
When I saw this Lee Angel Judi Cascading Necklace ($275) on a mannequin in Neiman Marcus, I thought, talk about statement necklace! The bottom row of beads are enormous, ornament-like. Statement jewels are huge right now, but would you wear one this dramatic?
Look what we have here — a fresh bouquet of flowers in the form of Cameron Diaz! The smiley actress looked bright and beautiful while dining at Dan Tana's in LA. Cam shows us with her groovy-chic '70s-inspired Tucker blouse that the floral trend is not strictly limited to small flowers. She finished off her ensemble with a pair of striped Proenza Schouler sandals and a lipstick red patent bag. If she were the dessert du jour, I would order her up!
Funny how shopping cravings go in and out with the seasons. Has everyone recovered from the holidays financially and are ready for Spring shopping?! You'll notice this month's most wanted are pretty plentiful — because Fab's in the mood for shopping. What are my Spring necessities? I need more prints, some fierce colorful shoes, and lots more jewelry. Sounds very Spring appropriate huh? It's time to shop ladies . . .
