Watch him go

Everything- Watch him go F 14

Let’s go for the color.  This week is all about the colorfully-decorated menswear watches for fall.  As a man’s wardrobe can be simple and monochromatic, I want to inspire a kick of color.  A watch is a practically effortless way to add instant style to a look.  These watches are commanding a double-take.  As you roll your sleeves up, let a peek of print make a statement for you.  Each of these watches can be worn with casual and formal looks.  Mix up your everyday look with a watch.

Which watch would you rock?

The fashionable cart

Everthing- Bar Cart F 14

I’m so excited to say that I finally found a bar cart and I can’t wait to decorate it.  As much as I love to put together a perfectly curated outfit, I also love interior decorating.  I’ve been searching for a vintage, gold bar cart with oversized wheels, or something unique that I could make my own.  Instead, I settle for something simple and black, so I can dress up the cart with rich colors and playful prints.  Like my fashion style, I love a great pop of color, micro prints and edgy lines.  With that being said I’m looking to create an androgynous feel to my bar cart through color, mixing prints and a unique focal point.  While I impatiently wait for my bar cart to be delivered hurry up Thursday, I’m sharing some of my decorative finds.  Clearly I’m having a gold moment.  To pull in the blues in my living room, a teal or cobalt pop of color will give a great sense of depth to the black cart and gold accent pieces.  Stay tuned for my final, decorated cart in the next few weeks on Instagram.  Cheers!

How do you decorate your bar cart?

Issey Miyake

Runway- Issey Miyake S 15 1

It’s all in the fold.  Issey Miyake‘s Spring 2015 collection has an origami inspired feel.  Fabric-blocking created a rich sense texture and depth.  A slight sheen on the different fabric panels really brought the pieces to life.  Miyake took the fabric-blocking to the next level with their layering and folds.  Wide necklines laid down on the collar bone with folds of fabric.  A tiered look was created by the strategic wrapping around the body, giving each garnet a completely unique silhouette.  I love the attention to detail in the asymmetrical hemlines and unique necklines.  Sign me up for a folded-layer dress, please!

The making of the bib

Everything- The making of a bib F 14

The bib necklace is making a statement this season, again.  No matter what, there’s a bib necklace that can fit your style.  I choose a few bib necklaces that will work for any woman’s wardrobe.  A general rule for wearing a bib necklace is to wear a top with a high necklace.  You want the adorned part of the necklace to lay on your top, not your skin.  For the casual girl, try wearing a chunky knit sweater with a heavy-layered bib necklace.  This look is effortless with the simple addition of a necklace.  For the more business-minded at heart, try adding a simple bib necklace under your collar.  The peeking out of the bib will show off your stylistic eye without needing to change up your minimalistic look.  For the trend setters, go for a colorful, dramatic look.  I love the idea of layering the bib necklace over a sheer top, paired with a leather jacket and hat.  Push your style this season with a playful, bib’d look.

That’s so printed

The rain really dampened things up for my beloved summer-outfit style.  Between seasons, I love use my clothing for repurposing across seasons.  This mini skirt is effortless and playful.  I wanted to add in some tights for warmth and a double button up to add a layer and some depth.  Mixing prints are a great way to add texture and a personal style touch.  Look for the pieces of your wardrobe that you can use from spring to fall.

What’s your favorite piece to repurpose between seasons?

Paul Smith

Runway- Paul Smith M F 14

It’s a menswear coat thing.  Paul Smith‘s Fall 2014 collection has cool outerwear pieces.  As much as you see women’s outfits take on an androgynous look, you don’t often get this feeling when you look at a menswear collection.  Paul Smith gave his collection a hint of women’s inspired details to his coats, yet leaving them just masculine enough for men to wear them.  From the printed animals to the dusty, dark pink and fur coats, the looks are eye-catching.  Bulky cropped jackets and long trench coats are taking the forefront in silhouettes this season.  Take cue from this collection and rock a hint of androgynous details in your style.
