VELVET TO THE MAX

Velvet maxi skirt and Sasha Maks Vintage boho necklace.
On my recent visit to Closet 1951, a designer consignment boutique in Cow Hollow, (for a meeting to plan my summer trunk show coming June 15th, save the date to shop my latest vintage eye-candy !) whose pieces I have featured on the blog before, I spotted a drop-dead velvet maxi in richly colored Art Deco style floral motif.
Velvet was a big trend on the Spring 2016 runways and this DVF skirt struck me as a versatile piece that will easily transition from day to night, and will be ideal for the cooler temps in the fall. To balance skirt’s length, I went with a neutral spaghetti strap top. A brass gypsy-chic cabochon set necklace perfectly picks up the colors of the skirt. A python clutch and sky high wedges stand up the the statement maxi.

TEXTURE NOIR {THE ALL-BLACK ENSEMBLE}

Mahsa leather skirt and Sasha Maks Vintage earrings.
If you need a sartorial palette cleanser, go for an all-black look. While the all noir look is classic and sleek you don’t want to be accused of looking (yawn) uninspired. To keep things interesting play with texture and vary the fabric of each piece. The pencil skirt is from local designer Wear Mahsa, who I featured in two previous posts, here and here. The herringbone design on the front made my heart skip a beat in its elegant execution! I chose a knit sweater jacket with studs to contrast and compliment the intricate pattern of the skirt.
Kitten heel calf booties in a faux ostrich leather add yet another dimension to the black ensemble. To play up the drama, I added rhinestone and black glass cameo drop earrings and an intricate and delicate beaded Victorian necklace. A simple shoulder bag completes the look effortlessly.

THE NEXT LEVEL LBD

Wear Mahsa LBD and Sasha Maks Vintage jewelry
The quintessential building block of any modern wardrobe this is the versatile LBD you’ve been waiting for! The Christina dress from local brand, Wear Mahsa, can be worn three ways. As shown here with the high/low sheer layer showcasing the gold striped  bottom of the dress. Without the overlay as a stretchy figure hugging sheath, or as I wore it in last week’s blog (with Mahsa’s cardigan) as a top styled back to front. This dress can’t be accused of being basic.

To play of the subtle gold stripes, I chose a pair of textured gold-tone horn shaped earrings studded with glass pebbles. And continued the precious metal theme with a metallic clutch in copper, and cheetah-print oxfords with gold zippers.

Speaking of versatility, with a double breasted blazer and a structured tote this look is ready for the office.

THE COOL CARDIGAN

Statement cardigan and sheer tunic.
When you’re not in the mood for a structured blazer, there’s nothing more cozier then a cardigan, but it doesn’t have to be boring! On a recent visit to the Fashion Incubator (FiSF) I met an emerging local designer, Mahsa Gharehgozloo. whose collection, Wear Mahsa, is sophisticated, elegant and ideal for work and after-hours.
One of the pieces that really stood out to me was the longline cardi with an abstract print on the back. It’s bold and versatile, and could be easily layered over another sweater or jacket. To contrast the bulky knit, I chose a sheer tunic dress ( actually an overlay from a dress you’ll see in another post). Tuxedo stripe trousers and chunky sandals balance the look between laid-back and polished. Chunky Lucite jewelry compliments the casual chic look.
How would style a statement cardigan?
XO Sasha
P.S. You can shop Wear Mahsa and another local talent I have featured on the blog, Kajan Cake, Friday, May 5th, 6.30-8.30pm at FiSF’s Pop Up, 50 Powell Street, San Francisco, CA 94102.

PSYCHEDELIC {MARRAKECH} MAXI

Boho maxi dress and chandelier earrings.
Can a dress transport you to an exotic vacation of your dreams? No doubt, if it’s a high-waist pleated maxi in a bright psychedelic print inspired by Marrakesh! When I saw this dress at Love Street Vintage, visions of strolling through Moroccan souks (picking out Berber jewelry, stocking up on caftans and babouches) began swimming in my head. A strong print like this calls for bold jewelry. My fave filigree chandelier earrings and a double pendant necklace compliment the boho fabulous dress. Add an assortment of brass rings and I’m ready to explore Morocco!

And don’t forget to use promo code  SASHA to shop Love Street online or in-store to receive 10% off all merchandise through June 14th. Your perfect vintage vacay outfit is only a click away!

COURRÉGES SPRING

Courreges duster and Kajan Cake dress

I was lucky to find this vintage Courréges duster on a recent jewelry buying trip. I can see wearing this all summer and spring—over a dress, a box pleat number with mesh embellishment (a seamless mix of sporty and classic,), from local talent, Kajan Cake, thrown on casually over denim, and I think it will come in very handy when in doubt about what to wear over a cocktail dress or a gown. The sleeves are so roomy, the A-line silhouette will accommodate any evening look, and best of all it’s as light as a feather and has roomy pockets to boot. I cinched it here with a skinny double belt and added color with a purple satchel. Touch chic pendant earrings and a wide ribbed bracelet in pale gold-tone layered with a pair of silver-tone bangles with rhinestones add a subtle glamour to the the neutral ensemble.

GO BOLD, GO {ABSTRACT} IN VINTAGE

Abstract print dress and layered neklaces.

The minute I saw this caramel and black abstract print dress, I knew it was meant to be! It bears a strong resemblance to the simple and bold prints of the famous Finnish brand—Marimekko. I have been shopping at Love Street Vintage (formerly Mystery Mister), a small boutique in the heart of the Haight for years, and always had luck finding unique dresses from the ’60s and ’70s.

For jewelry, I chose bold color and shape, layering two green beaded necklaces (the jumbo cylindrical bead strand is one my faves), and an elegant strand by  Schiaparelli. A sculptural cuff wrapped in green, silky yarn, and a Victorian coral link bracelet make a stylish pair of opposites. A black leather bag is like another piece of major jewelry. The brass and amethyst embellished flap (Wow what a stunner! ) is an organic counterpoint to the sharp edges of the dress fabric.

Next time you’re in the Haight, make sure to visit this little vintage gem, and use code SASHA to shop their collection online and in-store to receive 10% off all merchandise through June 14th.

How do you like to rock bold prints?
XO Sasha

FRINGE SKIRT AND PUFFER

Fringe skirt and puffer.

A puffer jacket has become an essential wardrobe piece. For proof, check out Demna Gvasalia’s  high fashion versions with pushed back collars inspired by opera coats, at the Balenciaga Fall ’16 runway. Not only is it functional, but it provides a sporty contrast to classic as well as feminine pieces.

I paired a flirty fringe skirt with a Rebecca Minkoff puffer jacket with flat quilting, that keeps the look sleek and fashionable. A cozy cashmere sweater gets dressed up with two bold necklaces (Givenchy leaf-motif gold-tone stunner and Kenneth Lane cream Lucite and gold-tone link statement piece play nice together). For  a purse, I chose a minimalist and edgy backpack ( a style I have not considered for ages, but that seems just right now!).  To keep the look grounded, I chose my fave pair of oxfords ( I’m still waiting for Uterque to open a store in US, so I can stock up on the fashion forward and comfortable footwear), they lend a masculine edge to a form-fitting skirt.
How do you style your puffer? Please comment below.
