Downton Abbey Style

16 Feb

mary.jpgI’ve been watching Downton Abbey since the very first season and am sad to see it end in two weeks. TWO WEEKS!!! As much as I love all the characters and storylines, the one thing that I particularly enjoy seeing is all the clothes. The clothes this season have been particularly gorgeous, especially Lady Mary’s. She looks so modern and chic in every episode. I find myself wanting to wear her outfits every week! You can see some of the clothes worn by her and the other women this season, here. You can also see outfits from last season here.If you watch the series, whose clothes do you most covet?

Stripes

18 Jun

A lot of people who know me see stripes, and immediately think of me. You see, I have a bit of an obsession with striped clothing, particularly striped shirts. I’ve had this love affair with striped shirts since I was a girl, and I think it’s only grown deeper as I’ve gotten older.

I am not much of a pattern-wearing kind of woman, I have always preferred solid color clothing, and stripes, especially beautiful striped shirts. I buy them for myself ( I have lost count of how many I own), I buy them for other people, I wear them and I pin them. I just can’t get enough of them! So, when I saw  the various ways to wear striped shirts in Elle, I felt absolutely compelled to share it.

If you own one or many striped shirts, you can see more photos on how to style your stripes here.

Polo Necks

Now that the weather is getting cooler, well, at least everywhere else in the U.S. except here in Southern California, it’s time to start layering and bundling up. However, because the temperature can be tricky here in the fall and winter, it can get cold but not freezing cold, it can sometimes be difficult to find something  to wear that is warm yet not uncomfortably warm and still chic. Luckily, polo necks (i.e. turtlenecks, roll necks) are having an it moment and they are pretty versatile too because you can wear them alone or layer them. Will you add more polo necks into your wardrobe this year? You can see more ways to wear them here.

Diane von Furstenberg

3 Nov

thewomaniwantedtobeI’ve always liked Diane von Furstenberg, not just her iconic wrap-dresses but the sound advice she offers women.I am looking forward to reading her new book, The Woman I Wanted to Be, where she opens up about her entire life and how she came to create the global brand which bears her name. I am also looking forward to seeing her new reality show House of DVF which premiered last night, and which focuses on the search for the first Diane von Furstenberg brand ambassador. I  was unable to watch it but I recorded it on my DVR and am seeing it tonight.Will you read her book or watch her new show?

I discovered COS when I was in Paris last year. I was happy to discover it but sad that there wasn’t a store here in the U.S. Although, now there is one in New York and another is opening today, here in Los Angeles! So, if you live locally go check it out  and do some shopping! The store is located at 357 North Beverly Drive and the opening festivities begin at 12:00pm.

Oscar de la Renta

I was saddened to hear the news of the passing of legendary fashion designer Oscar de la Renta. He was so elegant, like his clothes. Whenever I read or saw an interview with him,  I got the sense that he was a true gentleman, in every sense of the word.
