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?

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?

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.

METALLIC PLEATS PLEASE

Lamé pleated dress and camel coat for day.
As you have probably noticed, I’m a big proponent of finding new ways to extend my wardrobe. My clients often tell me they have a pretty casual work environment, and when shopping for an event that calls for cocktail wear they sometimes hesitate to invest the money, since they don’t see how else they can use their party clothes. But there’s no reason why more dressy pieces have to be relegated to nights out only. One way to double the use of your glitzy pieces is to dress them down for day.

I wore this grecian style vintage dress from the ’70s ( it bears the Gumps label) to a New Year’s Eve party. The bronzy gold color is ideal for evening lighting. Granted in daylight, the look may be overwhelming. But tempered with neutral, classic  pieces in black and camel, the dress becomes a skirt, and instead of reading over the top, it elevates a simple cashmere sweater, a short camel coat, and sturdy school girl loafers.

For jewelry, I kept things down to earth as well, faux agate YSL earrings lend an earthy but sophisticated vibe. A matte glass cabochon link bracelet makes a statement in black and white. An oversized, simple clutch in khaki moderates the sparkly lamé fabric.

How do you incorporate glam evening  pieces for day?

LACE DRESS AND LACE UPS

#RebeccaMinkoff lace dress
I love the higher neckline on this sweet and sexy lace dress. It can easily go from day to night.I gave it an exotic twist by accessorizing with a gold-tone and milk glass statement necklace. A streamlined vintage coat with 3/4 length sleeves has ladylike appeal and lends a minimalist counterpoint to the all-over lace and the ornate necklace. The fold-over, two-toned clutch in buttery suede is elegant and versatile. I finished off the look with lace up peep-toe wedges. Wedges have to be the most comfortable way to wear a heel. And these booties are equally quirky and sexy.
How do you like to wear lace? Please comment below.
