HOW TO WEAR: OFF THE SHOULDER TOPS IN WINTER

posted by Elshane on Dec 8 2016, under Fashion

The comeback of the white T-shirt has been serving the greater good for women's closets for months now. Case in point? The amazing The Royal Native Zebra off the shoulder top that I recently got and was itching to wear. These days, anything layered with a white T-shirt underneath is a recipe for success.

It made me so happy to break out my off the shoulder top in mid-winter, that I couldn't help but kick my heels up, grab my baby girl, and do a little dance!

{Score any Zebra print from The Royal Native for 20% off right now by using the code ZEBRA at checkout! That makes this top a cool $61.}

EL IN WONDERLAND

posted by Elshane on Nov 28 2016, under Fashion

This dress is reversible, let's start with that.

I don't think I've ever owned a great reversible item before. My husband, who makes clothing for stores like Walmart, Sears, Target, etc, was always trying to sell me on his men's reversible shorts idea. I was always like, "Ehhh, next idea please," time after time. But now, I think he might be on to something...

This dress excites me because I feel like I have two dresses in one- -and they both serve very different purposes. The orange snow leopard is an obvious nod to my everyday colorful life, but the black --almost menswear tie- inspired -- printed dress is perfect for a quick night out. 

Kenzo x H&M did it-- they mastered the two-fer! I'm sold. Literally. Sold.

SUITING TWO STEP

posted by Elshane on Nov 18 2016, under Fashion

I will never forget when I fell in love with chic suiting. It was 2006 and I was the public relations assistant at Diane von Furstenberg headquarters in NYC. Like a scene from Devil Wears Prada, the hallways reeked of female power. These women were everything I dreamed of becoming-- smart boss lady boo-boos who commanded any room they entered. 

And what did they all wear? Chic, fashionable suits. Not your average Theory interview suit, I'm talking bouclés, rouging, pintucking, and flirty silhouetted suits. The kinds you saw at Paris Fashion Week but you didn't know really existed in real life. Of course, many were made by DVF herself. 

Fast forward 10 years, a superhuman brand of fashionable boss lady suiting emerges, Argent. And here, my fellow fembots, all of my suiting dreams have come true.

WHITE ON WHITE

posted by Elshane on Nov 16 2016, under Fashion

It's rare to see me without a rainbow of colors.

So when I steer in the other direction, I go all-in. Case in point? White on white on white. Cream on white on winter white on beige on tan on khaki. However you want to label it.

I've always been a huge fan of monochromatic dressing. I've taken it to the extremes of tonal pinks, and then back to basics with creams. It works every.single.time. 

It's the easiest fashion tip for anyone trying to push the envelope. Take it tonal and don't turn back!

IN BLING WE SEARCH

posted by Elshane on Nov 11 2016, under Fashion

So, yeah, I like bling. I like when it blings in blue and yellow and green and gold. That's cue for sapphires, yellow diamonds, emeralds, and karats, oh my! And sometimes I want to treat myself... or steer a certain significant other over the rainbow into the pot of gold. {Wink, wink to husbands everywhere!}

Until recently, I've found it very difficult to shop the internet for fine jewelry. I've checked websites like ShopBop, Barneys, and Saks, but I find their fine jewelry selections to be stale, uninspiring, and absurdly expensive. Shopping for fine jewelry seemed to be an outdated process.

Until now.

 

Swoonery is a luxury e-commerce site that has innovated the fine jewelry shopping experience. It showcases unique pieces by both established brands and up-and-comers that you won't find at your neighborhood jeweler. Also, they pride themselves on their costumer service aspect, making it a priority to get to know you as a consumer to make tailored jewelry recommendations depending on your taste and desires.

They're basically like your family's new "go-to jewelry guy", except you don't have to buzz through two black gates to get inside. They're just a mouse click away...

ROAD TO NOWHERE

posted by Elshane on Oct 19 2016, under Fashion

It's not everyday that you find yourself along a dirt road, riding in a pickup truck, listening to Darius Rucker sing the sorrows of yesterday. Then again, maybe that's a constant for you. But not me, no way. So when I go, I go hard...

Like, totally... situation dressing at its finest. :)

Drop crotch leather pants and a white tee would be a natural staple for me, but adding the woven Tejas-inspired cape brought me right where I needed to be-- in the center of a deserted highway in west Texas.

It all just felt so right.

WHEN GLAMOUR MET COMFORT

posted by Elshane on Oct 11 2016, under Fashion

We're redefining casual fall attire here on Elshane's World.

A cozy gaucho pant, a semi cropped shirt (this is the true definition of a reverse mullet top, right? Party in the front, business in the back...), and this season's MUST... a fur slide!

I opted for these GORGEOUS Brother Vellies fur slides because they are luxurious but a lot more affordable than their Givenchy and Gucci counterparts. I've never been so inclined to slide my little bare toes into a fall flat until now. 

Also, finding new ways to wear heirloom pieces like my vintage Chanel brooch, as a bejeweled tie at the top of a crisp shirt, is my cue for instant glamour.

How glamorously comfortable is this vibe?!
