KNIT PICKING

posted by Elshane on Jan 6 2015, under Fashion

Isn't it magical how you can escape into a world that only movies and picture books describe with a simple draping of fabulousity? To think that just minutes before putting on this lewk, I was just another gal in sweats. But here, now, looking back, I was e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g. in knit and fur and suede and leather, oh my!

I've never been about the clothing itself. I've been about the fantasy of the role you can play in each lewk you create. Throw on a turban and you're "global". Throw on a cat-eye frame and you're "retro". Throw on a perfectly constructed fur and you're "regal". 

Throw on a a pair of sky-high Alaia heels? Unstoppable.

After all, confidence sometimes shines brightest through a semi-sheer knit dress in the coldest of winter months...

ETERNAL SUNSHINE

posted by Elshane on Jan 13 2015, under Fashion

I found these Ani Lee pants at a sample sale and had an immediate swoon moment. They were missing buttons but that's an easy fix for a wardrobe vet. I planned on getting ruby or emerald vintage buttons and turning the pants into a bejeweled crown.

Instead, I found these vintage Chanel buttons at a premiere button store in Los Angeles. Such a small detail, such a big result. Now these pants are basically gold.

Do you own an item worthy of a button swap? {Weekend D-I-Y project alert!}

MINI DRESS AND HIGH TOPS

Anything leopard, anything goes. It's my second skin, my black, my security blanket, my happy place. And leopard on leopard? DOUBLE RAINBOW!

Move over Real Housewives of {insert any city here}. Leopard is more than just a tight cougar dress. Hey hey, no hate for tight cougar dresses or any Real Housewives (shout out to Andy Cohen all day everyday), r-e-s-p-e-c-t. But, just saying... there are cooler ways to wear leopard.

Peak into any fashion influencer's life these days and spy her rocking a mini dress with classic kicks. It's an easy style victory that can go from the office to the bar to the pick-up line at school! {... you like how I so casually just dropped in my new motherly role?}

Wait a minute... maybe I am a Real Housewife after all...

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!
