I am not sure about you,moncler jacke but I have been living in skinny jeans (blue and black) and more recently skinny faux leather leggings for the last couple of fall seasons.  Skinny pants have held court for years and while a slim leg will never go out of style,moncler jackets a wider leg trouser can be a nice change.  I don’t wear them all the time but I have always liked wider leg trousers for the comfort and the style,moncler jakker when I buy a nice pair,moncler ski  I tend to keep going back to them on a regular basis.  They are more difficult to wear for most women especially if you are not tall.  Even though I am 5’4” which is average,moncler jacken most of the time I wear mine with heels.  So If you are shorter like me,montcler I would suggest you always wear wide leg pants with heels and a shorter,online fashion store more fitted jacket.  If you are taller,moncler down jacket it is not such a problem as they are a lot easier to wear and you can get away with wearing them with flat shoes and longer jackets.

Last week,moncler women I was meeting a client and I wanted to wear our Madison menswear inspired women’s jacket. So instead of running to my usual favorite skinny pant (which I know would look great with it), I chose to wear it with my all-time favorite pair of wide leg pants.  I have had these D&G pant for years and I never get tired of wearing them.  They are a wider leg in the bottom but tapered in the middle so it makes them easier to wear.  I paired it with a new graphic Zara top I recently bought (the link is below) and our Madison jacket which for me is a classic piece and so easy to wear with anything.  I love folding the sleeves to show the stripe lining and cinching my sleeves up for a more casual laid back look.  Normally I always like a pop of color for my shoes or bag but this time I just wanted to stay in black, white and grey tones, keeping it simple.

What do you think of this look, and are you wearing wide leg trousers this fall?

Plaid Cape Jacket & Shawl Collar Vest | Jacket Society–moncler hat

This is one of my “Plaid” finds this season

As promised in my blog post “Mad for Plaid” a few weeks ago,moncler uk I am sharing with you one of my favorite “plaid” finds of the fall season.  I found this great looking plaid cape jacket / vest a few days ago when I was shopping and I love it!   I love the versatility of how you can wear it a couple of different ways,moncler jakker as a cape jacket or a shawl collar vest.  I have demonstrated it both ways in my pictures below.  Of course there are a lot of other ways you can wear it as well to dress it up or down,moncler grenoble with boots,moncler ski belted or even with a slim skirt.

Today I am wearing it with my favorite jeans and some pointy pumps to dress it up just a little.  I wore a basic long sleeve t shirt underneath but a short sleeve t shirt or tank top would have worked just as well.  I wanted to keep it simple and wear something slim for a layering piece because the plaid piece has a lot of volume already. This is a great look for a casual night out or a lunch date with a girlfriend or even to work if you can wear jeans to work. I also like the earthy colors with brown which is one of my most favorite neutral colors.  What do you think of this piece?  Leave me some feedback….

A Modern Tuxedo Jacket Look At The Walt Disney Concert Hall

So it’s New Year’s Eve,moncler gilet what are you going to wear? I wanted to show a New Year’s Eve inspired look I came up with this week on the blog.  You already know about my love for jackets,moncler paris and tuxedo inspired jackets are on top of the list.  First of all who doesn’t love a man in a tuxedo; they look so sexy and chic.  In my opinion they have the same effect on women,moncler cap maybe even more so.  I decided to show you my version of a tuxedo inspired look at one of my favorite locations in Los Angeles,moncler t shirts The Walt Disney Concert Hall.  It is such a beautiful building and I can easily say it’s one of my favorites in the world.  We have done a photo-shoot here before and I know we will continue to do so in the future.

I bought my tuxedo inspired jacket last year from H&M (I know even I was shocked to find a jacket like this at H&M).  I loved pairing it with these super wide leg trousers that I have had for a long time.  Add on just a simple white camisole and some simply beautiful gold jewelry to finish the look.  It’s actually a simple yet dramatic and modern women’s fashion look that I love.

What are your thoughts on tuxedos for women and how do you like my look?

Visiting The Los Angeles Art District In My Avery Jacket

My husband and I are always looking for new locations to use for our blog shoots and when we do find a great location we try to make a day out of it and explore the area. Last weekend we decided to go and see what was going on in Los Angeles Art District to shoot my latest Avery jacket. We had both been in the area many times before and had always admired the “cool factor” about that neighborhood.  The Art District is on the eastern side of Downtown Los Angeles and has seen a lot of growth and development over the last few years. Its is located between 1st and 7th street with the west border being Alameda and its Eastern border essentially being the Los Angeles River. The area is filled with older industrial buildings as well as many new and old residential Lofts. In 1981 the city of Los Angeles passed its “Artist in Residence” or “AIR” ordinance which allowed residential use of formerly industrial buildings. Artists had long used such spaces as their living quarters illegally and the “AIR” law sought to bring this practice into legality. Today,montcler the Art District remains the home of artists,moncler men arts enterprises and many who are employed in LA’s film and television industry. It is one of the most filmed locations in the world. All the warehouse spaces,moncler polo shirt industrial inspired artist’s lofts and graffiti filled walls,moncler milano bring an exciting,moncler boots creative energy to the area. In the recent years there have been more and more galleries,moncler jacket men studios,moncler jassen coffee shops and restaurants opening in the area,moncler hats making it one of the trendiest locations in Los Angeles. With that being said Tim and I spent a couple of hours walking around  area looking for some suitable locations around the Urth Caffe and then we wandered down to Handsome Coffee Roasters to have a break and grab one of their specialty espressos (my favorite type of coffee). While relaxing with our delicious espressos we edited the photos of the Avery Jacket we had shot earlier.  The Avery jacket is a sister to our Harper jacket. They are the same body but with slightly different fabrics and color. Just like our women’s designer Harper jacket,moncler womens the Avery jacket is also made with a beautifully soft and sanded tencel fabric,moncler vest but the fabric has a nice subtle texture to it as well. I chose the color “baby blue” since it is one of the latest trendy colors for spring / summer 2014 and it is a very flattering and wearable color for any skin tone. I am wearing it with my favorite Rag and Bone jeans, a simple tank, and my favorite gladiator sandals of the moment. I would love to hear your thoughts on our Avery jacket.

Labor Day Weekend At The Parker Palm Springs–cheap moncler jackets


Labor Day Weekend At The Parker Palm Springs

I hope everyone had a fabulous Labor Day weekend,moncler shirt we certainly did! With my son being away at college,moncler shorts we decided to take a few days off and head out to Palm Springs for our last attempt at getting some sun and well deserved end of summer R&R.
We have been to Palm Springs many times over the years as it is less than a two hour drive from Los Angeles. There are a lot of great classic hotels that have been seeing a resurgence recently,moncler men especially the smaller boutique hotels that still have that legendary Palm Springs resort feel to them. For this trip,cheap moncler we decided to stay at “The Parker” and we had an amazing experience enjoying this kind of Palm Springs “time capsule”. The Parker as it is commonly called has gone through many changes over the years. The hotel location was originally California’s first Holiday Inn in 1959 until Gene Autry purchased it in 1961 and renamed it the Melody Ranch /Autry Hotel and added many luxuries to the hotel including additional pools,moncler jassen restaurants and tennis courts.
In 1994,moncler jackets he sold the resort to his hotel director Rose Narva who then changed the site into an ornate French décor hotel inspired by Breakfast at Tiffany’s fashion designer Hubert de Givenchy and it was re-named The Givenchy Hotel and Spa. For several years after the sale,moncler mens jacket Gene Autry and his wife continued to live on the property in a large private home located at the back of the property. The house is still part of the property today and is rented out as one of the hotels suites. In 1998 the hotel was purchased by Merv Griffin who then named it The Merv Griffin Resort Hotel and Givenchy Spa and it quickly became a hot spot for Hollywood celebrities again. Fast forward to 2003 and it was purchased again this time by hotelier Jack Parker,moncler vest who hired designer Jonathan Adler to completely redesign the space.
After a $27 million facelift,moncler outlet uk the property reopened in 2004 under the name Le Parker Meridien or the Parker Palm Springs as it is also known. This hotel has a classic era resort feel to it,moncler parka I love the eclectic décor using mid-century modern furniture combined with art and global pop culture artifacts which are a signature look for Jonathan Adler.
With the temperatures being as hot as they were we were mostly in our bathing suits and by the pool, but I wanted to show you this soft wrap jacket as a resort look. I bought this soft kimono wrap jacket at the beginning of summer but didn’t have a chance to wear it until now. I love the shape and design and how it drapes so beautifully over anything you wear it with. I chose to wear it with my simple black spaghetti strap dress because I love how the two soft shapes combine together. The colors being black and grey I wanted to add a pop of color, hence my red clutch.
I know kimono wrap jackets were a big trend this summer so what about you, did you get one?

The MET Exhibit China Through The Looking Glass–montcler

The MET Exhibit China Through The Looking Glass

As you all know,moncler outlet online from last weeks blog story,moncler coat I had a wonderful time with my son during our recent trip to NYC. As I mentioned then one of the highlights of the trip for me,moncler online shop was to see the “China Through The Looking Glass” exhibit at the Met. This exhibit which opened in May and runs until August 16th,moncler beanie is huge and it was unfortunately very difficult to see all of it,moncler jacke let alone write about it especially when I was walking it with an 18 year old young man who is interested in fashion but not to this level. He was my photographer for the trip and even though he tried,moncler gamme bleu it was very difficult to get good quality pictures inside because of the different levels of lighting and with it being so dark inside in some areas. Nevertheless I wanted to share our pictures with you and tell you if you are going to be in NYC this summer make sure you visit this exhibit as it is well worth seeing especially close up and in person.

The show is named after Lewis Carroll’s novel and it focuses on the wide-reaching influence that Chinese art and film have had on western fashion. The show is not about China according to Andrew Bolton,moncler femme the curator at the Met,moncler bambino its about the collective fantasy of China and how it is represented in western culture,mens moncler jacket primarily fashion and cinema. This exhibit comprises of over 140 high-fashion pieces from Dior,moncler womens jacket Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent and more – all placed alongside their one of a kind Chinese inspirations.

Over the years, many designers have based entire collections on Chinese culture, including YSL’s fall/winter 1977 couture collection and his launch of the “Opium” fragrance. Another example is Valentino’s all red Shanghai collection from 2013, both of which are partly displayed at this exhibit. There are also some beautiful intricate Beijing opera and kabuki inspired pieces by Maison Martin Margiela and John Galliano for Dior on display in a pool of water, which I thought were so amazing.

Going even further back, Chinese export silks and wallpapers were a source of inspiration for Cristobal Balenciaga throughout the 50’s and 60’s. Also blue and white porcelain pieces have been used in many designer works including Rodarte, Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel and Roberto Cavalli some of which are on display as well.

Below you can see some of our photos and a video about the exhibit. As I said our photos do not do justice to this exhibit and how beautiful the pieces are but at least you can get an idea of what we experienced.

I hope you enjoy them and I would love to know if anyone else has seen this exhibit?
