SIMPLE FOR SPRING

posted by Elshane on May 3 2017, under Fashion

It's pretty hard for me to just put on a dress and shoes. {Ok, clearly by this photo I couldn't resist myself yet again-- I had to add the embroidered cardigan for some of the shots.}

But, I will admit, there is something special about a simple look. I naturally gravitate to separates because it allows me to mix and match a look to truly style an outfit as my own. A dress can feel so inside the box...so cookie cutter... so beige. 

But even I surprise myself sometimes with how easy a gorgeous dress can make for simple styling. It's really as easy as 1 (dress), 2 (heels), 3 (smile and go)! 

And in the blink of an eye... you're flawless...

THE POWER SUIT, REDEFINED

posted by Elshane on Apr 20 2017, under Fashion

Simply in my element! Vintage head to toe-- feels so right! This is what happiness tied up in a silk mandarin collar looks like! ;)

I hope everyone has a great week. I tried to find similar items to shop to recreate this look, but this is more of a, "just sayin' hi" kinda fashion post.

Hope you enjoy the suit as much as me! <3

SILVER STAR

posted by Elshane on Apr 11 2017, under Fashion

It's officially mini skirt season here in Los Angeles, and I'm doing the happy dance! Since I'm very openly NOT a jeans girl, mini skirts are my staple go-to, instead.

I find that a mini skirt can pair perfectly with nearly everything you'd typically wear jeans with. Fitted sweater? Check. Button down blouse? Check. Bomber jacket? Check. Plain white tee? Check. Check. Check.

In fact, the mini skirt staple is an instant wardrobe wow, no matter the occasion. If all it takes to look significantly more polished is to swap out the denim for a mini, while having the same outfit on waist up, then who's stopping us?! And just like THAT, your outfit goes from cute to killer...

A RAINBOW A DAY

posted by Elshane on Mar 28 2017, under Fashion

Throwing a camo jacket over this blissful rainbow ensemble was a last minute door dash for me. And I'm ever so thankful! It took what was otherwise a classic case of happy fashion and threw a cool girl wrench in the middle. 

Camouflage has always been a neutral to me (yes, so is leopard and rainbow, but still), so it was an easy grab over this colorful lewk. It works. I dig.

Into The Wild

posted by Elshane on Mar 12 2017, under Fashion

We went to Aspen for the first week of March. The weather was mid to high 40's, even on top of the slopes! So what immediately came to mind? FashUN! I wanted comfy, cozy, cool. 

So I did. An oversized glam t-shirt, chunky over the knee socks, and a fur so fabulous that it deserves its own post. It was passed down to me just the evening before I left on the trip, from my mother-in-law who handed it down to me from her mother-in-law. It must be 75 years old. Score!!

The look is a little street, a little sass, and a whole lotta Après Chic!

SPINNING THE COLOR WHEEL

posted by Elshane on Mar 2 2017, under Fashion

We're in a bit of a fashion weather bind here in LA. It's sunny, it's chilly, it's winter, it's almost spring... It's a bit hard to dress when you're still trying to feel winter chic, but the sun is shining so damn bright!

So a compromise is in order. A 3/4 sleeve white T for layering, a tweed top that feels winter yet reads spring, and a skirt that both covers and shows leg. Oh, and this Chanel handbag enters scene as the rainbow frosted, double sprinkled, triple cherry icing on the cake!

I mean, what am I complaining about? It's too warm to wear boots? Boo hoo hoo!!!!!

CLEAR AS BLACK AND WHITE

posted by Elshane on Feb 22 2017, under Fashion

Leave it to 2017 to arise from the taboo grave the phenomenon of the exposed LABEL! From our trendy underwear that read Calvin Klein across a big white band, to our uber expensive belts that roar MOSCHINO across the waistline; we're in an era of exposing brands and I ain't mad about it! Not one bit!

This tank top is cool....basically just because it says Chanel straight across the chest. And I'm ok with that. I'm also ok with the tattoo of GG's imprinted across my mules from heel to toe. 

How do you feel about wearing your logo... on your sleeve? Comment below! ;)

GIVING COLD SHOULDER

posted by Elshane on Feb 15 2017, under Fashion

The flat over-the-knee boot trend isn't going anywhere...

This weekend, since it is still winter (I have to remind myself this since it's in the 70's here in LA), I paired these amazing (and on SALE) boots with a wool skirt for an effortless Los Angeles winter vibe. *Just add tights if you live in the real winter world!

Of course, any outfit is complete with a Chanel bag, especially if it's tie dye and unique like this baby that I get to call mine! Well, she's not THAT exclusive... you can have her too, here, if you really want! 

It's just so true... a good look head to toe is ALL about the accessories!
