White Blazer

A white blazer is a classic item that is so versatile and definitely a summer staple. With nights getting a little chillier, a blazer is the perfect item to throw on over your outfit to take it from day to night. White blazers give a crisp and structured look, while also appearing effortlessly chic when worn with a casual outfit. I paired the blazer with a soft peachy blouse and white shorts to continue with the white theme. I love to add pops of color or stand out pieces. By adding leopard flats you are able to bring in a fun and playful print that helps complete the look. The Anthropologie necklace is one of my favorite parts of this outfit. It is understated and a beautiful statement piece with soft complementing colors and different shaped beads.

Neiman Marcus Fashion Exhibition

The other day I came across the Neiman Marcus Fashion Exhibition, and I was instantly inspired by all the gorgeous designs. This Fashion Exhibition showcases a few incredible and breath taking pieces from top designers, including Missoni, Carolina Herrera, Marc Jacobs, and Lanvin. The beautiful designs are brought to life with textures, bold colors, impressive structure, and intricate details. My favorite dresses are Valentino, Monique Lhuillier, Emilio Pucci, and Oscar De La Renta. If only I had somewhere to wear them! Neiman Marcus definitely chose outstanding pieces to showcase. What do you think about the online Fashion Exhibition?

Skaist-Taylor

I've always been a fan of Juicy Couture, and when I discovered that the founders; Gela Nash-Taylor and Pamela Skaist-Levy created a new label, Skaist-Taylor, I was beyond excited! They created a line which they consider to be "California Eccentric". If you're the type of person who looks for standout prints and soft easy-going pieces, then this eclectic and fashion forward line is for you! The Fall 2012 Ready-To-Wear collection is full of day-to-night dresses, shrug-on knits, cotton-cashmere blend sweaters, and a large variety of boho accessories. I really like this fall collection because it feels a little bit edgy, which is something different from what we would normally see with Juicy Couture. I think the edginess and natural colors are a great mix and perfect for fall.  The one shoulder mini dresses, faux fur jackets, loose fit sweaters, and metallic fabrics really caught my attention. This is a collection I could definitely see myself wearing this fall. What do you think about this new line?

Olympic Nails


{Images Via Fashion Snoops}




One of London's biggest nail artists, Sophy Robson, teamed up with Max Factor to create incredible nail art for the Olympics. They created 207 country flag designs that were hand painted onto athletes and their families. These nail designs are a unique way for people to show their love and support for their countries in a creative and fun way. Some of these country's flags have intricate details that include multiple colors and small shapes. It's interesting to see how they were able to be painted. Being a nail polish fanatic, I love seeing all the incredible flag designs and new ways to paint your nails.  What do you think about the flag nail art deigns?

Brahmin

Brahmin

BrahminBlack

I received this Brahmin bag the other week and I was beyond excited. I haven't been able to put it down since! With the crocodile texture and glossy leather, this is a bag that will surely be used on a regular basis. I love the simplicity of the bag and that it's structured, making it a perfect bag for work or an internship. The size of the bag is ideal to hold all of your necessities as it has lots of pockets on the inside as well as pen loops.  It's also long enough to even carry magazines, folders, notebooks, etc; all things I would normally take to school with me. This bag also comes in a pecan color.
