TAKING THE PLUNGE: THE LITTLE BLACK JUMPSUIT

Plunge neck jumpsuit

 Have you ever wanted to try a new  daring trend and where not sure how to execute it? I think the trick to pulling of a revealing  garment is balancing it with sophistication. The deep V neckline of the jumpsuit is tempered by it’s sleek and masculine tailoring.  To top it off, I chose a chose an iconic piece that embodies style and elegance, a tweed collarless jacket ( and I love the leather trim detail!) from the one and only–Chanel.  In a nod to Chanel styling, I added a faux pearl necklace, and for drama around the face, large Robert Goossens (Chanel’s head jewelry designer in the 60s) leaf earrings. A handsome two-toned satchel and sexy wood platform peep-toes finish off the ensemble.
To shop the pieces in this post join us Wednesday, April 22nd, 5pm – 9pm at Closet 1951 for  a Spring Pop Up. RSVP here.

Is there a daring look you’ve wanted to pull off? Please comment below.

LACE MAXI + MOTO

 

Lace Maxi Dress and Moto

 

 
A maxi dress is a must-have for spring and summer! When I recently attended a blogger event at Moda Vive, I had the pleasure of discovering Les Lunes (whose French design team creates luxe basics in bamboo jersey in saturated colors), and the luck to win this dress in the Insta contest!  The collection is chic, comfortable, and expertly crafted. The jersey stretch fabric drapes beautifully, this is an elevated basic you need in your closet.

VALENTINO BOHO LUXE SPRING + TRUNK SHOW

Valentino boho dress
I’ve recently discovered a gem of a designer consignment boutique in Cow Hollow, Closet 1951. A good friend of mine has been telling me about it for awhile, and once I finally made my way to it, I was blown away by the stellar curated selection of high-end fashion! Owners Ilona and Tania will make your experience of finding a treasure from McQueen, Chanel, Jimmy Choo and I can go and on, or consigning a breeze. It’s like spending an afternoon with your best girlfriends who are funny, warm and most importantly fashion experts!

I was never indifferent to the boho trend, and seeing this one-shoulder Valentino creation in a riot of pleats in an all-over print abstracted flower print chiffon, I could not resist! For embellishment, I layered two 60s necklaces with glass white and pink beads.  And finished off with patent leather t-straps  and a little black bag by Chanel–naturellement!

Swing by the boutique and mention this post to receive 25% off everything through next Tuesday!
Stay tuned for more looks with my collab with Closet 1951 and join us April 22nd 5-9pm for a Sasha Maks Vintage trunk show.
XO Sasha

SPRING TREND: MILITARY-INSPIRED

Spring Trend: Military Inspired

In my final installment on my fave five trends for spring, I’m going to cover the military-inspired trend. Check out previous weeks posts on how to wear gingham, fringe, a polo shirt and culottes.

Seen on the Spring 2015 runways of at Marc Jacobs, Gucci, and Yigal Azrouel, I have always admired this trend,( see how I styled my Uniqlo safari dress here and my military green trench here).
Who can resist the androgynous sex appeal of YSL muse Betty Catroux in a lace front khaki tunic (it was based on a uniform worn by the French army in the Algerian war) with thigh high boots and a wide, low-slung belt. And speaking of sex appeal, Verushka posing for Vogue Paris in 1968 wearing the  same tunic is iconic.

SPRING TREND: HOW TO WEAR CULOTTES

Spring Trend: Culottes

 

The trend for this week is culottes, as part of an ongoing series of my favorite five spring trends. See previous week’s tips on how to wear gingham, fringe, and a polo shirt.

Whatever you call them, gauchos, divided skirt, I’ve always loved culottes, but have only being able to find them in vintage stores, and I love seeing them on the runways in such a big way! The questions always arises, how to wear them? Nothing could be simpler, think of them as a full midi skirt and they won’t appear as mysterious.

SPRING TREND: THE ’70S, HOW TO WEAR FRINGE

Spring Trend: The '70s, How to Wear Fringe

Originally published on Urban Darling.

Last week I featured one of spring 2015’s biggest trends and how to wear it–gingham, one of my fave seven trends for spring that I covered in January. For this post, I’m in more familiar territory, the ’70s.  This is one fashion decade, along with the ’60s, that I come back to time and again for personal inspiration. The ’70s where a huge trend for spring,  and one of the more sexy looks to emerge is fringe. While it can be intimidating and seem like an overpowering statement, the beauty of of this trend is that you can commit full on or just dip your toe in the water.

IT’S A WRAP {DRESS}: SPRING LAYERING

Wrap dress over pants

I love a good wrap dress, they are always flattering and I’ve owned a couple of vintage DVF dresses in distinct prints But there’s more then way to wear one. When I bought this 40′s dressing gown in a foulard print, I wanted to style it as a duster. Cinched with a thick braided belt and layered over a turtleneck and cropped skinny jeans, the look is laid-back and elegant.
How do you like to style a wrap dress? Please share in the comments.
