More Tips On Transitional Dressing Into Fall–moncler jacke


More Tips On Transitional Dressing Into Fall

Last week I wrote about transitional dressing and how I incorporate some spring pieces into my fall outfits. Well I wanted to continue on the same idea this week and talk a little bit more about the “transitional season” which is actually a “big” season here in Los Angeles.
I found this geometric print soft jacket at Forever 21,moncler womens jacket of all the places,moncler mens a week ago. I was drawn to it for two reasons,moncler beanie one was the geometric print which is a big trend for fall 2014,moncler homme and second was the draping and asymmetrical shape. Normally I wear prints as a top more under jackets because I can never find a good printed jacket that I like,moncler mens jacket I really understand prints are very personal and it’s hard to find universal ones that everyone will like. So when I saw this in the store,moncler womens jackets I really liked the pattern and color combination. I also liked the fact that it was like a soft women’s jacket,moncler womens and because it was in a dark fallish color combo,moncler vest it made for a great transitional piece. I decided to purchase it and sure enough it gave me the idea of making it a kind of part two to last weeks story so i could give you a couple of more pointers about transitional dressing.

1. Find a light weight jacket or sweater to throw on but in a darker fall color. Even if it’s still 80 degrees outside you can have your soft jacket on and not be too hot but if it’s in a fall color you will still be dressed season appropriately.

2. Get a printed piece but in a dark fall color combo,monclere it can be a soft jacket or a blouse you can wear open and layer. The print can be a dark color way but the fabric can still be light so you don’t feel hot but you look like you have transitioned into fall.

3. Use fall color jewelry with fall color gemstones like amber,moncler hoodie topaz or jade and metals like antique gold, silver or copper.

 

I hope these tips are helpful to you and I would love to hear some of your ideas about transitional dressing.

Visiting The Louis Vuitton Exhibit In Los Angeles–moncler jas


Visiting The Louis Vuitton Exhibit In Los Angeles

I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine’s Day.  Normally we like to stay home for Valentine’s Day since going out to dinner can get very stressful. But this year it fell on a Saturday; so we decided to make a fun “date” out of it.  I have wanted to visit the Louis Vuitton Series 2 exhibit in Los Angeles since it opened back on Feb. 6th,moncler milano so we decided to head out to Hollywood to see the exhibit and have dinner later at Fig and Olive which is a restaurant we both wanted to try for a long time.

Let me tell you that the exhibit was well worth a visit.  Nicholas Ghesquiere became the artistic director of Louis Vuitton in November 2013 and this is his vision of the time travel through past-present-future of the brand.  The exhibit has seven rooms and it shows the process behind Ghesquiere’s technique in putting his spring 2015 ready-to-wear collection and fashion show together,moncler t shirt which was shown in Paris back in October of 2014 and just hit the Louis Vuitton Stores last week.

  • 1st room – called the “Abstract Title” shows the oversized neon logo which was initially the seal of the founder Louis Vuitton who launched his house as a trunk maker back in 1854.
  • 2nd room – called the “Talking Faces” allows visitors to experience the opening animation of Ghesquiere’s spring 2015 women’s collection for Louis Vuitton.
  • 3rd room – called the “Magic Trunk” shows one of the house’s most recognizable products in hologram projections. Heritage pieces include Greta Garbo’s LV monogrammed shoe trunk circa 1926 purchased at Bullocks in Los Angeles. (Sold recently for$37,moncler ski500)
  • 4th room – “Savior-fair Room” focuses on the “Malletage” (famous Louis Vuitton bag) inspired by the inside of a Vuitton trunk.
  • 5th room – “Backstage” recreates a fashion show’s backstage space,moncler bady rolling racks of the clothes with some of the actual runway pieces.
  • 6th room – “Infinite Show Room” is a 360 degree projection room showing runway shots of all the 48 looks from this collection,moncler jackets coming at you at every angle and in a continual loop.
  • 7th room – “Accessories Gallery” showcases the accessories on the pure canvas of Marte Mei van Haaster’s scanned,moncler vest 3-D printed figures alongside heritage pieces.

As you get ready to exit,moncler femme there is an area for souvenir stickers for you to take home.(The idea for the stickers came from the luggage labels that were often affixed to Vuitton’s trunks in the golden age of transport)  These stickers are images taken from the prints on the white denim pieces in the collection that included a hair dryer,moncler men lipstick,moncler sale headphones,moncler shoes etc.  Everyone also gets a free “Louis Vuitton Series 2” poster.

We tried to take as many pictures as we could for you to see the entire effect.  But if you live in the Los Angeles area I highly recommend you visiting the show as it is a visual treat and you can only get the real experience by being there.  The exhibit closes this weekend on February 22nd, it is located at: 1135 N Highland Ave Los Angeles CA Open 10am – 6pm.

Afterwards we went to dinner at Fig and Olive.  Pascal Lorange is the famous chef behind the food which is influenced by the coastal regions of south of France, Italy and Spain.  It has a beautiful ambiance inside and is very spacious, the great food was amazing and even though it was Valentine’s Day, the service was not that bad.  I would highly recommend this restaurant if you are in New York, Los Angeles or Chicago.  We truly enjoyed our meal and over all had a fantastic Valentine’s Day.

What did you do for Valentine’s Day, I would love to know.

A Fresh And Clean Palette For The Start Of Spring–moncler men


A Fresh And Clean Palette For The Start Of Spring

I have come to the conclusion that if you are living in Los Angeles,moncler gilet you are better off looking at your calendar rather than outside your window or the thermometer to realize what season you are in and what is the appropriate thing to wear.  As I have mentioned before we completely skipped fall/winter here in Los Angeles this year and now it seems we are skipping spring and are moving right into summer.  Since spring officially started last Friday,moncler t shirt I am going to ignore the temperature and just pretend it is beginning of spring and hope that we will have some spring weather before it gets super hot for summer.

For today’s look I wanted to do a fresh and clean palette for the start of spring season which is also a perfect transitional palette.  Tan and black can easily be a fall color palette,moncler gamme rouge so much depends on how you accessorize it and what other type of colors you add to the outfit.  The same outfit with a darker top and scarf combo and some black boots would be perfect for fall.  Just throwing in the white tank top and the white/taupe scarf,mens moncler jacket and some fabulous sandals makes this outfit spring ready for me.

I know most of us think of scarves for fall,moncler size chart but I love them for spring in lighter and brighter colors.  I will be adding a lot of fun spring scarves to our web site in the next couple of weeks,moncler online but I wanted to show you this one quickly as I know many of you,moncler outlet like me,moncler jackets love leopard prints.  This lovely soft scarf is a made from a light weight cotton / rayon blend in a soft taupe and white leopard print.  You can dress it up or down with anything from jeans to white or black skinny pants or even dresses.  The scarf is available on our web site Click Here.

I bought the jacket I am wearing at Zara a few weeks ago,moncler vest I liked the color and the metal closure and I thought it’s a good basic body that one can wear with many things.  It is still available at Zara,moncler bambino it also comes in red or black and I have included the link below the photos.  I paired it with my favorite skinny Capri pants that I have had for many years but they never go out of style.  Instead of adding any other bright color, I added my gold Hermes belt, gold straw clutch and some gold rings.  I think you can tell by now I love gold!

I love reading all your comments and thoughts every week about my looks and especially any Jacket Society pieces and I truly appreciate each and every comment.

Having said that I what are your thoughts on today’s look and our new spring scarf.

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?

The Ivory Vest Styled For Summer In The City–moncler women


The Ivory Vest Styled For Summer In The City

It seems everyone really liked the “Summer Solstice” vest I introduced last week,moncler jackets I really appreciated all the comments and orders placed online. As a designer,moncler online shop it is such a great accomplishment when you design something and get such a great reaction to it,moncler store so thank you all so very much I am truly grateful for all your support.

So this week I would like to introduce the Ivory vest. I wanted a slick and modern look,moncler grenoble but also wanted it to be summer appropriate. So I chose to wear it with my favorite tailored black shorts,moncler t shirts which might be a little too short for the office,moncler homme but this look can easily work with longer shorts or a pencil skirt to wear to the office. I know shorts can be tricky when it comes to the lengths of them and I also know as we get older many of us may not feel comfortable wearing shorter shorts.

For me the length that I am wearing today is probably as short as I will go,moncler uk unless we are at the beach or by a pool and my shorts are really more like a cover up. The good news is that there are so many different lengths available out there for us to choose from. The same applies to short skirts,moncler jacket although I tend to feel more comfortable going a bit shorter with shorts than I do with skirts,cheap moncler regardless you will find the length you feel comfortable and stick with it.

With the Ivory vest and black shorts being my base,moncler womens coats there were so many different ways you can go for a top. Any bright color top would have worked here as well, but I chose to wear it with my grey and black geometric print top to keep the slick modern look going. I also decided to go with silver jewelry for this look and added one of our beautiful new silver necklaces I just added last week to the online store here. The Ivory vest is also on the website and is available here.

What is your comfort level for shorts or skirts and what do you think of my look?
