Since the British Vogue article came out about the must have silver Gucci metallic bomber jacket for Fall, everyone has been looking for the perfect version of the Gucci metallic bomber jacket. Like many, the Gucci metallic jacket at $3,600 is a little bit out of the budget. I did find some great looking alternatives that I thought I must share with you. One of my favorites come from the controversial Nasty Gal. This version has the same signature cuff colors of the original Gucci bomber jacket, but it is in a gold metallic version instead of silver. For $78, the Nasty Gal version is pretty darn good if you want a gold bomber jacket. One that looks very close to the Gucci metallic bomber jacket is actually sold at Forever 21 for $34.90. I bought this version and I love wearing it with dresses or pants. Other versions in all gold without the signature cuffs can be found at Asos and Neiman Marcus. Since this metallic trend may be fleeting, spending under $100 may be the way to go.
Everything has feathers this season in a good way. Think about adding some soft feathers to your spring wardrobe to welcome spring with whimsy. Loving these sparkly feather pumps available at Bergdorf Goodman, this feather grey bag from Nordstrom, and these skate sparkly feather sneakers from Miu Miu. If you are going to a gala this season at the Met or an awards party, this Marchesa feather dress is a must that you can wear with the Jocelyn feather jacket. If you want a more casual dress, get the Saylor shoulder straps nude colored dress with feathers trimming the bottom of the dress. Last but not least, is an elegant black camisole top with feather trim on the bottom from Line & Dot for $77 which can be worn with a skinny pencil skirt or a pair of jeans.
The holiday season may be over, but red puffer coats are a great idea right now and will brighten your mood from the daily gloom. It’s January and cold.

Here are some of my favs you can wear with a great pair of red Aquazzura red lace up pumps on sale when it’s just cold and not raining or snowing outside. Wear the perfect Zadig & Voltaire lace camisole underneath in case you end up somewhere at night for drinks.

Some can only be worn out and some can only be worn to work. Some of my favorites can be found by Club Monaco, Victoria Beckham, Abound, Stella McCartney, Rani Arabella, Oscar De La Renta, YesStyle, MM6, Endless Rose, and Chelsea28.
Ever wonder how people who eat gluten free can enjoy noodles? If you love Vietnamese noodles you can pretty much go gluten free. One of my favorite places to go in Los Angeles is Nong LA on Sawtelle and they now have one on La Brea near The Grove. They serve everything with their rice noodles which are gluten free. The menu is simple and everything is delicious. If you like soup noodles order the beef Pho Tai, or chicken versions with their beef or chicken broth and their rice noodles. If you want a salad version order vegetarian or meat with their vermicelli rice noodles with salad. So many choices you can eat here healthily 5 days a week!
If you want to try this at home – try making these noodles with miracle noodles which are gluten free and high fiber.
I never get tired of the Chanel tweed jacket and dress combo. And now contemporary brands as well as Chanel are doing the tweed jacket and dress combo in such a way that you don’t have to wear these dresses or jackets only to lunch. You can wear these great looking ensembles to parties at night too and not look too dainty.
What is it about mini things that we all love so much? A tiny Prada mini backpack on a key ring in their iconic classic nylon backpack shape seems like a must have for the season. I feel like I just need to have it to hang next to my Tory Burch fur pom pom keychain on my bag. What am I gonna put in it? Probably nothing. It is just so cute.
