Belt it

French fashion royalty comes in the form of Queen Emanuelle Alt and princesses Capucine Safyurtlu and Geraldine Saglio. Usually fans of not zipping up/buttoning up their coats...

...these leading ladies have been keeping in the warmth and bringing back waist definition with belts!

I'm happy to welcome these gorgeous beauties to my closet.  I found them at The Room at The Bay on super sale. I didn't have to think twice about making this purchase. 
Find them: here, here, here

Drape Me

Drape Me

My style may come off as simple and I definitely live by less is more, but not when it comes to the subtle details. My shopping quests as of late have me looking for some simple tops with that added extra detail to really catapulte them to the next level without being 'too much'. These shirts are just what the doctor ordered. It's amazing what some draping can do for a seemingly basic top! However, the doctor also called for a dose of reality, so while the prices are way out there, this is what I'm using as inspiration as the search continues. I can only hope that the high street gods come out with something similar. I find myself praying in reference to fashion way too often these days. Amen!

Hit the Town

Hit the Town

First things first! Let's discuss these slingbacks. They are one of the comfiest pairs of heels I own, the shape is really cool, very Wang-esque, and they are on sale from $99.99 to $39.99! I happily paid full price for them.  The second I saw them a few months ago, I knew I had to have them. I recently purchased the faux leather track pants with the intention of buying a shirt like the one pictured and wearing them altogether for a fun night out.  The only snag: I should probably wait until the temperature makes it to the plus side before I trot around town in slingbacks. Here's to hoping, praying and waiting! (In the meantime, add those shoes to your cart)!

Balenciaga Clutch - Obsession Du Jour

Balenciaga Clutch - Obsession Du Jour


Balenciaga Clutch 


This gorgeous little creature is the epitome of everything I could ever want in a clutch.  The sleek, smooth leather contrasted with the round shape of the silver hardware is absolute perfection.  I'm not one for carrying/dancing around while holding a bag (my moves are too horrendous, we wouldn't want anything impeding me while I look like a moron), so the option of the chain strap is ideal when I require a little bit of versatility. In the words of Rachel Zoe, 'I d.i.e.'

A night out

A night out

Here's to a look that uses 4 versatile pieces that are so simple and yet have an extra detail that makes them anything but basic!  The shirt can actually be worn two ways, as you see it buttoned up and as a wrap shirt, fastened with the side-seam button.  The added ruffle on the shorts, the wrap-around straps and buckles on the sandals and the gold closure on the clutch pack an extra punch.
