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

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!}

FUR FINDINGS

posted by Elshane on Jan 26 2015, under Fashion

So then this happened... 

I was popping in by my favorite fashion PR firm last week, Infinity Creative Agency, when I melted and resurged like a chic, fashionable, yet still carrot in tow Olaf reincarnation (#frozenreference) once I laid my very 20/20 Lasik'd eyes upon these Charlotte Simone fur treasures. I could hardly walk out the door with the items in tow without begging for an impromptu "wall session" {moment with just me, a killer wall, and a friend with a camera.} 

#HollywoodHomer so happened to be my arm candy that day, so he wasn't too keen on being second fiddle on another ball o' fur. He will always be #1 in my heart, but I can't deny that this handbag and scarf come in a close second...

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.
