SUMMERING IN WHITE

posted by Elshane on Jul 17 2017, under Fashion

Coming from the girl who feels uncomfortable in her own skin if she's not wearing at least two different prints on her body, is bringing it strong in a classic white button down.

It's one of those staples that you can't own enough of, and you can never go wrong in. I'm constantly on the hunt for new white button downs to add to my closet, because, well...not gonna lie... they get stained a lot from makeup and baby's sticky fingers. 

I've done the work for you and shopped the internet for some of my favorite of-the-moment white button downs that are perfect additions to your ever-expanding wardrobe. Hope you love my selects as much as me!

FOLLOW SUIT, JUMPSUIT

posted by Elshane on Jul 6 2017, under Fashion

Ohhhhh, my love for a chic jumpsuit runs deep. 

By now you all probably know that it's hard for me to gravitate towards a dress, because it doesn't feel incredibly "self styled" to me. I like my separates wild and cool, and paired together in a way that's uniquely unique. Yes, I just used unique together as an adverb and adjective.

But a jumpsuit, for some reason, is a whole different ballgame. The jumpsuits in my closet are by far the most re-worn outfits season after season. As a matter of fact, one's up at bat tonight, too... 

I've listed carefully selected must-have jumpsuits to get you through summer and swing you right into fall. Check out the SHOP MY LOOK section below for all the home runs!

SET MATCH POINT

posted by Elshane on Jun 28 2017, under Fashion

Have you sifted through the way back of your mother's closet only to discover poorly fitted and pilled matching sweater sets? 

Yeah, this isn't the same thing, don't worry. Pajama sets reemerged on the European fashion runways a few years ago, along with many questions, hesitations, and low brow under the breath remarks. Why would we push aside a fresh, feminine look and replace it with baggy silk pajamas? Well, why not? 

Fast forward seasons and seasons later... yesterday, today, and tomorrow... wearable pajamas are proving to be a major success. {Disclaimer: I'm talking pajama-trend fashion, not real pj's!} There's just something so "cool girl" about a pajamas set for day or night, but of course, the attitude and style needs to follow suit.

Hair and makeup must be #goals (styled to perfection). Footwear must be #goals (on trend and sexy). Attitude must be strictly #bosslady chic (no yawns, allowed). 

If you can trick the outside of your appearance to resemble that of a confident power chick, then the pajamas will relay the same message.

So who's getting into pajamas right now? I am... ;)   Off to drinks I go!!

RESORT'ING TO SUMMER KAFTANS

posted by Elshane on Jun 16 2017, under Fashion

 

Effortless kaftan dressing reminds me of my days working for Diane von Furstenberg in NYC. Not because there was anything effortless about the NYC summer heat, but because DVF famously lived out her publicly photographed youth lounging in kaftans across the seas of Europe. 

It's for that exact reason that every time I put on a kaftan, I feel absolutely, positively F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S!!! Cue: layer on the jewels, the hat, the turban, and the wedges.

 

Have you put on your first kaftan of summer yet? Do you own a kaftan? I've rounded up some of my current favorites in the SHOP THE LOOK section below! Go on, feel FABULOUS!!

LET US GIRLS BE GIRLS

posted by Elshane on Jun 7 2017, under Fashion

Good morning! If you haven't already checked out my interview with Fashion Mamas, then here it is!

Sunday and I played dress up in a handful of looks and shot editorials all over mi casa. It's a light, fun read where I describe my decor choices for each room, from how I brought my taste of New York with me to LA, and where I hoard all of my shoes!

This was of course my favorite moment-- twirling and twirling in our matching tulle. Although, you will see in the article that Sunday and I raid her baby closet and leap around in a pile of faux fur and hair accessories-- that moment comes in a close second! I hope you enjoy the article!

SHEER DELIGHT

posted by Elshane on May 29 2017, under Fashion

I do feel like I could play tennis with Cher Horowitz right about now... She would be so proud of the evolution of her signature look!

This black sheer overlay was a blank canvas for me. I didn't want to go the common route of pairing it over a white T, so I played around in my closet, throwing it over everything from a dusty Herve Leger bandage dress (it was a major cool moment that I must re-create ASAP), to jeans and a T for a chic'd up vibe. This sheer overlay is my new tall drink of water. ;)

Now that I think about it, it might even make an appearance at the beach tomorrow...

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
