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

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!
