THE PAJAMA TREND

posted by Elshane on Feb 7 2017, under Fashion

I'm screaming for 1,000 count bed sheets from head to toe. Or am I? This look is mysterious, it's chic, it's fabulous. It's pajamas.... or is it?

First let's start with the silk cami. A top so versatile that it would double as both your favorite party top, and your Sunday am breakfast in bed go-to. It gives all the feels. I layered it over a white t-shirt to give it a daytime cool vibe. And hey, the camisole (in an array of colors) is on sale here for $35 from $106! 

Now let's discuss the pants. Dare me to wear them again tomorrow? Ok, fine, I will! I can't take them off. I love drop crotch as you all know, but I also love how they're so skinny on the bottom. They look clean, crisp, and... comfy. 

And who can put baby Lamu in the corner? My furry slides are back in stock here, and not to be missed this time around.

All in all, we've got a pajamas party that has me in all sorts of happy moods. What do you think of this pajama lewk?!

TRAVEL UNIFORM: WHITE KICKS

posted by Elshane on Jan 31 2017, under Fashion

Packing for a sunny getaway is as simple as a mini dress (or in this case, romper), colored basics, and some easy white kicks. 

When the tequila is flowing and the local beach shops are calling your name, there's simply no other way to get around town {IMHO}! Don't mind the ankle brace in some photos-- dance party accident!

P.S.- This romper is by Saylor and they continue to make the best rompers for spring/summer! I've added a selection of my favorite styles in the Shop the Lewk section below!

DROPPING NEWS ON DROP CROTCH

posted by Elshane on Dec 14 2016, under Fashion

I love when people ask me where I got these pants. It's easy to casually drop "Jerusalem" with a smile and a wink. No biggie. Want them? Just buy a plane ticket, all groovy.

And then I discovered this online shop that sells all of these pants direct from all of the fabulous countries that they originate from (India, Israel, etc). All on one purchase page! AS IF! But, since you guys are my loyal readers, and since it takes a strong, bold, funky, fly woman to pull these off, I am letting you in on the secret.

Here's where to find these pants online! Oh, any P.S.., they usually don't cost more than $15. Yes, you read that number right; it's not a typo. I didn't forget a 0 at the end. $15 for these pants. Here.

You're welcome.

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...
