Silk Slip Dresses and Biker Boots for NYFW

on February 11th, 2016
0 Comment

Boho-chic-beanie-boots-styleNYFW is in full effect in New York City right now and many people are running around in their best boho chic looks. One of the favorites that we spotted for NYFW was the slip dresses with the biker boots with a slouchy sweater and a beanie. You can dress up the beanie with ears and wear a pair of biker boots with bedazzling. However you do it, make sure your slip is one that has great lace and a vibrant color. You want to stand out in this luxe meets grunge redux from the 1990’s. Courtney Love did this when Nirvana was hot, now you want to glam it up a bit if you want to do this for NYFW.

One of our favorites is the Stella McCartney silk chemise slip dress that is just as sexy under a sweater as it is alone for Valentine’s Day. After all the big V day is this Sunday. It is on sale for 50% off too here.

Another favorite is the Fleur du Mal cream silk chemise slip dress that has lace around the neckline and at the hem which can peak out under a v neck roomy pullover sweater with a pair of bike boots for that edgy yet sexy look. This one is also on sale for 50% off here.

The Eugenia Kim felix fur cat ear skull cap is a must have to round out the boho chic look. Eugenia Kim is the originator of this feline beanie and no one does it better. Get her beanie here.

Looking for that perfect slouchy sweater? You may already have one in your closet,but in case you don’t we love this one from Acne Studios because the brand’s ability to do minimalism is better than any other brand at the moment. You will pick this sweater up and wear it over a silk slip dress or over leggings or jeans and you will pack it on all your travels. This sweater will not be spending much time in your closet.

Last but not least you need those biker boots. We have a favorite. We love the studded Valentino biker boots because what would match better with a slouchy sweater and slip dress than these boots?

One you have your whole outfit of the day, you are ready for NYFW and or Valentine’s Day.

Armparty by Vita Fede and Valentino Bracelets = Happy 2013

on January 26th, 2013
0 Comment

How do you have a Happy 2013? You have an Armparty of course.

Who do you invite to the arm party? I love to invite a crowd. My usual crowd involves my rose gold made by me diamond and pink enamel evil eye bracelet, Rose Gold Rolex, Rose Gold Cartier bracelet and a Rose Gold mini titan bracelet by Vita Fede. But to really have a big Armparty, I suggest loading up on both arms.

So today I decided to add a pink Maison Valentino – Valentino spike bracelet and a rose gold Vita Fede Yasue bracelet to my other arm in anticipation of Valentine’s Day gift guide idea inspirations.

When I am looking for inspiration for writing, I usually do research at stores and online to see what are must haves for my readers. When I found these two new bracelets, I knew these would have to be part of anyone’s Armparty and Valentine’s Day gift guide. This will lead to a Happy 2013.

Get the Vita Fede yasue bracelet for her in rose gold for Valentine’s Day for $250.

Get the Valentino Pop Rockstud bracelet for $175.

(Photo by me. Evil eye bracelet made by me).

Round out the party with a Fallon spiked crystal and curb link gold chain necklace below. This one is pretty fab.

Chinese New Year Red Dresses

on January 26th, 2012
0 Comment

Diane von Furstenberg Andie Dress新年快樂. Are you celebrating Chinese New Year in style this year? If you live in Singapore, Taiwan, or Hong Kong you are probably off for a few weeks and traveling with family. Did you give out red envelopes? Do you have a red pair of shoes, dress, or bag for a big party? Is their a fundraiser that you will be going to or something with your family? A great red dress always eclipses any other color and for Chinese New Year if you are like me and wear black almost every day of the week, change it up and get a great red bag or a red dress to wear to that Chinese New Year dinner or party.

Chinese New Year is such a fun time of the year for kids and adults because it is a time to take a break, get rid of anything from the past year that we want to clean out or cleanse from our lives, and plan for the new year of the Dragon 2012. Foods that are popular for this time of year include noodles for long life, dumplings, and many fun pink desserts. Everything looks so pretty and festive. In Hong Kong the Chinese New Year celebration is pretty big and there are fireworks in the Harbor.

The Chinese also love using a play on words by using homonyms for foods that symbolize happiness, health, and prosperity for the New Year. Many of these food items are often used in dishes during the Chinese New Year dinners and parties. Here are some examples:

Seaweed, especially black moss, Fat Choy, (in Chinese: 髮菜; pinyin: fàcài; literal meaning: hair vegetable). The two syllables of Fat Choy in Cantonese sound the same as a Cantonese Chinese New Year greeting “Gung hei faat choi” (恭喜发财) meaning “congratulations and be prosperous”; additional meanings: – good luck, exceeding wealth.

Seeds – lotus seeds, watermelon seeds – having a large number of children ç±½ [zǐ]

Shrimp (小虾; xiÇŽoxiā) – happiness and good fortune.

Shitake, Black mushroom (冬菇; dōnggū) -longevity, sizing opportunities

Slender Noodle (細粉; xì fÄ›) – see glass noodle

Snowpeas (荷蘭豆; hélándòu) – unity

Spring roll (春卷; chÅ«njuÇŽn) – wealth (the shape represents a gold bar)

Sweet corn (甜玉米; tián yùmǐ) – growth, increase

Sweets, (糖食; tángshí, ç³–æžœ;tángguÇ’) rice cake (年糕; nián’gāo) – safety, good fortune and ‘sweeten’ the new year

Tangerine (橘; jú) – luck

Also, the decor is red for good luck so many homes are decorated with red lanterns and red tablecloths during this time of year. Modern homes do red accents that compliment their more contemporary decor.

So, if you are shopping for Chinese New Year and need a great red dress for the new year, check out some of my suggestions. AND after Chinese New Year, you can wear the dress again for Valentine’s Day.

Parker Maxi Pleated Black Gown for Valentine’s Day

on January 22nd, 2012

Parker Pleated Maxi DressSo that guy finally asked you out after months of random questions and excuses to call you about other things. Months later you are spending all of your time together. Things are going so well that he has planned a fun night out for the two of you for Valentine’s Day. Dinner reservations are made at your favorite restaurant in Soho and you want the perfect dress to wear for your special night out with him. What do you wear? You want to look pretty without looking like you are trying too hard. You want to be able to look elegant without looking boring or dowdy. The dress has to have some sophistication but still be on trend.

This black pleated maxi dress with a racer back is the only dress you need. What I love is the way the top part of the dress blouses out so that it looks like a tank that is tucked into the pleated skirt. However it is one dress and drapes just right with a swingy pleated skirt that finishes off the whole gown. It really is a gown because of the way it falls. Think Audrey Hepburn or Gwyneth Paltrow when you wear this dress. You can wear it again in the summer when you go on vacation to the Hamptons this summer and have dinner on the beach. It is just a great dress. You will want to wear it every time you have a special occasion.

Parker Pleated Maxi Dress
 for $286.

Or what are you buying for yourself? “A kiss on the hand is quite continental, but diamonds are a girls best friend…” Well, that’s the way the song goes and in this case, you cannot go wrong. For your gal who may have a little bit of rock and roll in her, I suggest this cool Roberto Coin diamond skull pendant.This diamond skull and crossbones pendant necklace is the ultimate jewelry accessory with its black diamond eyes and cool 18KT white gold.

Cartier or CC Skye bracelet?

on February 11th, 2010
0 Comment

I love the Cartier love bracelet for what it symbolizes. It is Cartier, it is a classic, it is gold, and it is made to lock so that it stays on until you unlock it.  

made a new bracelet called the CC SKYE Spike Love Bracelet and it is the punk version of the Cartier love bracelet. It is 18KT gold plated, has spikes instead of the studs, and has a hinge closure. The new love message for the glam punk younger generation. How about this for Valentine’s Day? I think this is a great gift idea.
