Today seemed like an exceptionally long day at work. Not only was the weather bad causing less people to be outside, but our power was out for a good 4 hours. After twiddling my thumbs for the first 3, I decided that I had to go into the back room and find a book of some sort to keep me busy. I came across, French Country Living by Caroline Clifton- Mogg. I was pleasantly surprised after flipping through the pages. There were some fabulous photos, tips, and after reading it, I decided that I want my home to resemble this certain style. I highly recommend picking this book up if you are interested in interior design, or if you need a little inspiration to get you going!

Beach Wear

Rain rain, go away…! Okay, how annoying is the weather? Last week we were spoiled by mid 70’s warm, sunny weather, and now, we are bundling up in rain coats and busting out our umbrellas. I am trying my hardest to stay positive and think of all the fun days to come at the beach. What are my favorite beach pieces to bring with me? Of course a cute bikini is at the top of my list. I love to mix and match suits together, that way it feels like you have way more styles than you actually do. You always need to have a beach towel, a cover up that is just as cute as your actual suit, some sandals that are easy to take on and off, a book to help you relax a little more, tanning oil to obviously get a nice glow, sunglasses, and a beach hat to keep your face protected from the sun! Oh yeah, and you need a fabulous beach tote to fit all of these essential beach pieces.

The last few months, Rachel Roy’s garments have been appearing in more and more department stores. She does have some cute things at a very reasonable price. I don’t own any of her garments, but I plan to in the near future. I found a great gold skirt by her on Ebay that looks extremely fun. This type of skirt can be worn during the day with some flats or sandals, and then you can easily change your shoes and top for it to be night appropriate. I love these types of pieces because you get much more use out of them!

As I was reading In Style today, I found a fun article that was titled, “10 Things Every Woman Must Own.” The magazine asked stylist, Nicole Chavez to give her input on what fashion pieces are a must in every women’s wardrobe. This is what she came up with:


10 Things Ever Women Should Have

1. Tailored Blazer: This is one of those pieces that can never go out of style. You can dress it up or down, and wear it with anything from a dress to trousers.
2. Leopard Scarf: It is always best to pair a basic outfit (jeans and a plain top) with a printed scarf. This will make your look more interesting!
3. Red Flats: Most people tend to go with a more basic color like black. But, red attracts more attention and adds some more flair.
4. Striped Top: Striped tops always seem to look chic when you pair it with fun accessories and jeans.
5. Statement Necklace: A statement necklace is always a smart accessory to have because it can make your outfit that much more dramatic.
6. Little Black Dress: Even men are aware that every lady should own at least one little black dress. This is the type of dress that can be worn out at night with some friends, or even on a romantic date. Make sure it is a special one with certain details that other dresses don’t have.
7. Black Opaque Tights: Black tights are essential in every women’s wardrobe. Everyone has heard that black makes you look slimmer, and this is definitely the case with a good pair.
8. Oversized Watch: Most people wear watches, but if you are anything like me, I wear them only for the fabulous look of them. It is a great accessory to add to your outfit.
9. Classic Trench: This is one of those pieces where you want to invest your money in. Buy a good one, because you will have it forever. You can wear this over any outfit that you maybe wearing.
10. Flared Jeans: Now a days, the skinny jean is what is most popular, but some people can’t wear this style. Flared jeans are a type of jean that flatters any body type, and looks great with a pair of heels or wedges.

Alejandro

I am a huge fan of Lady Gaga, and the fan cover her new single, Alejandro, has been released. As I was reading YVY magazine I noticed the inviting photo. Not much to say about it, except it is HOT. Of course, we shouldn’t expect any less from Ms. Gaga.

I have always loved fashion drawings. I can’t draw for the life of me, but I always get a kick out of looking at different artists styles. I found some beautiful sketches on Ebay this morning that I was drawn to instantly. I love the colors used, and the silhouettes of the figures. These types of sketches really get me inspired!

Head down to the closest Betsey store to pick up some fabulous Spring accessories. What could be better than laying out in the sun with a pair of retro leopard sunglasses and an over the top blingin’ ring? Add a cocktail to that list, and were good to go!
