Make Your Favorite Women’s Classic Blazer Fun And Sexy

I have been looking for the opportunity to do a blog story about wearing a blazer over a dress and the opportunity finally presented itself last weekend when we were invited to a cocktail party.  Most of us wear cocktail dresses to cocktail parties and we either don’t feel like we need a cover up or we choose a shawl to go with a dress.  This is all fine and I actually really like a nice evening shawl over a cocktail dress.  Why not try a blazer over your dress?  I know this look can seem a bit business like,moncler boots but it all depends on how you style it with your shoes and accessories.

I decided to wear my favorite white blazer to this cocktail party and show you how I made the jacket more fun and less serious for an evening out.  Because I was wearing a classic blazer,moncler london I wanted the dress to be interesting and have a twist to counterbalance the classic blazer.  I bought this dress last year because I loved the asymmetrical side drape and the back exposed zipper which are the two elements that make it unique.  This combined with my modern and sexy sandals and my vintage YSL necklace (a statement piece I purchased in Paris years ago) automatically give the white classic blazer a more modern twist.  On top of that I decided to fold the blazer’s sleeves and scrunch them up on my arms to give it an edgier look.  You can also pull up your collar a bit to make the whole look even cooler.

What are your feelings about wearing blazers over dresses for evening?

Shopping Abbot Kinney In Venice California

I hope everyone had a fantastic Fourth of July weekend. We had a low-key and relaxing weekend,moncler bady which included a nice dinner and fireworks at a friend’s house on the Fourth,moncler kids then shopping and dinner by the beach on Saturday,moncler milano and going to the movies on Sunday.
On Saturday we decided to visit Abbot Kinney Blvd near Venice Beach as we hadn’t been there in a while and it is fast becoming one of the most fun and trendy streets in Los Angeles.

In 1992,moncler usa the name of the area’s main street,moncler hats West Washington Blvd,moncler clothing was changed to Abbot Kinney Blvd. Ever since then, it has gradually becoming one of the “go to” destinations in the Los Angeles area.

Since it was the “Fourth of July” weekend, I decided to wear my Kate jacket, which is white with navy and blue stripes and represents the colors known for this weekend. However, instead of adding red as my third color, I decided to go with orange, just to change things up a bit. I am wearing it with my white shorts, an orange crochet top and my wedge platforms.

This past weekend my husband and I went to Pasadena California (speaking of old & new) and I decided to demonstrate this concept by wearing my favorite vintage jacket with a brand new trendy skirt,moncler pet and trendy gladiators.

WILD THING Animal Prints For Fall Jackets

I don’t really think I can call “animal prints” a trend anymore. They have become a staple in every season nowadays especially fall. The good news is that designers keep coming up with new designs and patterns and people seem to love them and can’t get enough of them. Fall 2013 is no exception and if you have looked at magazines or been to the stores recently you will have seen them in different patterns and colors all over.

Spring Jackets for Ladies, Blazers for Women on Sale–moncler jacket

Best Jacket Trends for Spring 2015

It seems like ages ago when spring 2015 runway shows took place in September in New York,moncler womens jackets Paris,moncler boots Milan and London. At that time I did a recap of my favorite spring jackets for women for each city.

Here are the top trends that I picked up on from the shows for jackets/outerwear for spring 2015:

  1. Denim

When it comes to spring jackets for ladies,moncler t shirt denim is always an easy choice because it is 100 percent cotton and works over anything. It might be hard to wear this to work but it’s a perfect choice for the weekends over printed dresses and skirts.

  1. Suede

Most of us think of suede as a fall winter fabric,moncler sale but suede or ultra sued comes in all kinds of weights and the lighter weight pieces are perfect for spring. When shopping for jackets or blazers for women on sale,moncler jacken look for suede pieces in neutrals and beautiful pastels.

  1. Floral prints

Who doesn’t love floral prints for spring?  They are so fun and as soon as you put on a colorful floral print you already feel spring is here.  There are all kinds of patterns available out there so you can go with your own preference but I strongly recommend a great floral or tropical printed jacket.

  1. Gingham

This is a great subtle pattern,moncler outlet I call it a “no print” print which means its almost like wearing a solid,kids moncler anyone with any type of figure can wear gingham.  You can stick to this kind of pattern if floral patterns or plaids become too much.

  1. Plaid

Normally plaids are more difficult to wear for everyone but the good news is that there a lot of different sizes and shapes out there.  Try mixing them with a smaller pattern and definitely a solid.

  1. Military looks

I personally love khaki and tan colors for spring summer; they work perfectly with white or black.  A lot of fabrics in this category are cotton based so they work perfectly for spring.  Look for a military inspired jacket with gold or brass buttons,moncler jacket men it could be belted or cropped but it would be a great addition to your wardrobe.

  1. Soft pastels

Pastels are always perfect for spring summer and there were a lot of beautiful variation of them for spring this year.  For some of you,moncler online who feel like pastels might be too washed out for you,moncler jacket sale remember you can go with a little darker shade of them which are called sorbet colors.

  1. Sheer and transparent

The one category where sheer and transparent fabrics work perfectly for are jackets.  You can wear them over tank tops or camisoles and they are the perfect fabric to keep you cool.

  1. Vests and sleeveless jackets

My favorite trend which I have talked about before, I have always loved vests and sleeveless jackets as they are so versatile.  You can wear them with sweaters for fall and transition into spring with wearing them over a t-shirt or tank top.

Below you can see some pictures for each category from the shows that took place in September.

Before we get into what your thoughts are on all these fabulous trends, I just wanted to say thank you to all of you that entered out Monterey boucle jacket Giveaway in January, and big congratulations to our winner Colleen P. who won this beautiful jacket.  We will be having more Giveaways in the coming year and hope you can join all of them.

Light, Designer Jackets for Women, Moto Jacket for Women–moncler kids

My Chanel Inspired Look

I have been busy working on new designer jackets for women to add to the website and new additions to our jewelry and scarf sections as well. The Chanel look necklaces I am wearing today are some of my new additions. I immediately fell in love with these simple elegant necklaces,moncler outlet store because they are so reminiscent of Coco Chanel and her jewelry. They were inspired by the famous Chanel 2.55 shoulder bag straps. I think they look great as a necklace,moncler hoodie especially with the little pearl and gold tassel at the end. I decided to wear them with my Napa boucle Moto jacket for women,moncler outlet which is also made of a fabric inspired by the Chanel boucle jacket as well. Last but not least I thought I would add my own flower pin in honor of the Coco Chanel signature camellia flower to finish the look.

Here is a little background on how the camellia flower and the Chanel 2.55 shoulder bag became famous and left a mark in the fashion industry as one of the “Chanel signature looks.”

Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel was and still is the ultimate style icon of the century. She epitomized Parisian style and was effortlessly chic. She wore mostly black but she knew how to accessorize with her multi strands of pearl and gold chain necklaces,moncler tracksuit chunky cuff bracelet’s and her signature camellia flower. She fell in love with the camellia flower after her lover Arthur Edward “Boy” Capel gave one to her. It became her emblem and the brand’s signature as she started wearing them on her jacket lapels and in her hair. Pearls were the other accessory she loved to wear. She thought they reveal the most feminine aspect of a woman. As far as the Chanel 2.55 bag is concerned,moncler shirt she wanted to add shoulder straps to a woman’s bag to give her more freedom in movement. Back in those days most women carried bags in their hands and it was somewhat of a hindrance. The idea behind the shoulder strap chains came to her from the caretakers of the convent where she grew up. They held the keys at their waist dangling from the same type of chains as the 2.55 shoulder bag straps.

These beautiful necklaces are now available on our web site,moncler jacket sale Click Here. I styled my outfit here wearing two of them together,moncler womens as you know I like to stack necklaces together. I think they will also look great mixed with pearl strands or gold chains. I also wanted to mention that the jacket I am wearing,moncler beanie our Napa boucle Moto jackets is also on sale right now at a great price. Click Here.

I would love to hear what you think of my look and our new necklaces.

The Workmanship Of My Acne Studios Jacket–cheap moncler jackets

The Workmanship Of My Acne Studios Jacket

The stores in Los Angeles have had some amazing end of the season sales and markdowns recently. A Couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to find this beautiful Acne blue peplum jacket in one of these sales.  It was the last piece and it had been marked down a few times.  Lucky for me,moncler grenoble I think the main reason was because it was such a small size.  I got a really good deal with this jacket since Acne Studios jackets are normally quite expensive.  Acne Studios is a company based out of Stockholm Sweden and the collection is designed by Johnny Johansson.

He is very good in mixing cool urban staples with a modern edgy twist with lots of attention to detail and a strong emphasis in tailoring and eclectic use of materials and custom made fabrics.  Recently they have opened a store in downtown Los Angeles (Eastern Columbia Building) near the garment district and whenever I am downtown I make sure to take a peek inside as they have beautiful jackets.

The first thing that drew me to this jacket in the store was the beautiful blue color and the raw edge detailing,moncler london but as soon as I put it on I also loved the shape of the body and the bell shaped sleeves.  I was mesmerized by how beautifully it was made inside which is just as beautiful as the outside.  As a designer,mens moncler I really appreciate good construction techniques especially in a women’s jacket. You don’t see a lot of construction like this in ready to wear jackets; they are mostly in high end designer levels or haute couture.  This is why I really wanted to share this with you and tell you a little bit more about the work that goes into a beautifully made jacket as this is a real treat for me.

The whole jacket is fused with a cream color cotton canvas interlining to give the jacket more structure and body.  This is because the blue fabric is too light weight for a jacket so designers use this technique to give it more body.  I have used this technique on some of our jackets as well.  In addition to this they have used a cotton crinoline canvas interlining layer in the bottom part of the peplum to make the peplum stand out.  Crinoline also known as horsehair is a material that is durable and easily shaped and used in clothing or hats to give them shape.  It is used a lot in wedding gowns or evening gowns.  The other detailing inside that I love is how all the seams and darts are clean finished with a binding made of the blue satin lining material to give the jacket a finished look.  This is a great way to show the inside construction of a jacket without it looking messy.  It is an alternate way to finish the inside of a jacket rather than sewing in a full lining.

Here I am wearing my Acne jacket with my favorite D&G flared black pants.  These pants have a bell shape to them and they compliment the bell shape of the jacket and sleeves.  Since it has been quite warm in Los Angeles,moncler tracksuit I just wore a tank top underneath and added two of my beautiful necklaces that I have just added to our jewelry selection on our web site.  These two pieces are sold separately and will look great on their own as well,moncler milano but as you know I love layering lots of necklaces together so I thought the two pieces together made a more dramatic statement.

You can find both necklaces Here and Here 

What are your thoughts on the jacket and my new necklaces?

The Workmanship Of My Acne Studios Jacket

The stores in Los Angeles have had some amazing end of the season sales and markdowns recently. A Couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to find this beautiful Acne blue peplum jacket in one of these sales.  It was the last piece and it had been marked down a few times.  Lucky for me, moncler grenoble I think the main reason was because it was such a small size.  I got a really good deal with this jacket since Acne Studios jackets are normally quite expensive.  Acne Studios is a company based out of Stockholm Sweden and the collection is designed by Johnny Johansson.

A Recap Of Spring 2015 Haute Couture Shows–moncler jacke

A Recap Of Spring 2015 Haute Couture Shows

The Spring 2015 haute couture shows took place in Paris this week. I’ve been following them mainly because couture shows set the stage for upcoming ready to wear shows and trends which eventually trickle down to mass retailers and what we see in stores.

Not every design house can do a haute couture collection,moncler womens jackets there are requirements you have to adhere to set forth by the “Federation Francaise de la Couture” in Paris.  Here are the three requirements:

  1. The design house must accept private clients and do made-to-measure clothing and personal fittings.
  2. They must show two couture collections a year,moncler london in January and July.
  3. The design house has to have an atelier or design studio in Paris and employ more than 20 people.

There are not many design houses that do haute couture and the main reason is the fact that there is not much profit in doing them.  The shows and the “one of a kind clothes” are very costly to make and the clients who can afford to buy them are a very small percentage of the world population.  They are mostly put together as a long term investment and publicity for a designer’s profile which helps in sales for their ready to wear,moncler jakker cosmetics,moncler canada perfume and accessories collections.

Normally you see a lot of beautiful dresses and evening gowns at these shows.  This is understandable as the clients who are willing to pay around $10,moncler femme000.00 for a gown would like to wear them to very special occasions and black tie parties.  However there are some designers that always do beautiful jackets and coats as well and that is what I have highlighted for you here.

Before moving on to my favorites,moncler polo shirt I wanted to mention the Jean Paul Gautier’s show in particular because I was very impressed that he used a refreshingly diverse cast of models of various ages and shapes.  He has done this before but it is always encouraging when you see designers using real women on the runway.  You can see some of the pictures at the end.

I hope you enjoy my picks and let me know which ones are your favorites.

What Do You Think Of My Ultra Suede Cape Vest

Suede and ultra suede are one of the biggest trends for spring and after seeing some of the fall 2015 shows,veste moncler its looks like it is carrying straight into the next fall season as well.  I have been experimenting using ultra suede (faux suede) for some new jacket pieces.  As you know real suede is very nice as well but difficult to work with,monclere just like real leather you have to buy it in pieces not yardage and it ends up being very expensive when you are done making a jacket out of it.  Ultra suede on the other hand comes in yardage just like any fabric and still has the look and the feel of suede.  It is the perfect kind of suede to use for spring,moncler t shirts since it is lighter weight as well.

I decided to wear this tan ultra suede cape vest for the outing which is a one of kind sample that I wanted to get your opinions on.  I love hearing from you all every week and this is the best way for me to get product feedback from readers and customers.  Originally I was going to wear a long sleeve top under it but it was so hot that I had to go with a tank top instead,moncler homme of course it could be worn with a long sleeve top underneath for cooler days as well.

My outfit was pretty simple and casual so this cape vest was a fun addition to throw on and make the outfit more exciting.  I also added this fabulous necklace that we have just added to our web site and I love it.  Its my personal favorite color combination of gold,moncler jackets turquoise and brown and works perfectly with this outfit.  You can find the necklace here.
