A hint of lace

TWR add a little lace spring 2016

It’s getting romanic over here.  One of my favorite shirts right now is a white, lace t-shirt.  The sleeves drape down around my arms, the hems are scalloped and the fabric is sheer.  I love the airiness to lace — it’s romantic but edgy, soft but structured.  Lace pairs well over printed pieces and also worn independently.  You may think lace dresses up a look, but with the right accessories, you can pull off a casual lace look any day of the week — calling for some denim and a pair of adorable flats.  Check out my favorite lace pieces out right now.

J. Mendel Bridal

TWR J. Mendel Bridal Spring 2016 7

Calling all brides.  J. Mendel‘s Spring 2016 Bridal collection is the best described as Grecian structure.  The fabrics were draped across the body, creating a corset-like silhouette.  Wrapping, flowing, overlaying pieces of fabrics created depth even in a form fitted bodice.  Inserts of skin peeked through, giving a romantic-edge to the gowns.  Lace paired beautiful with chiffon and satin fabrics — perfect for keeping all eyes on the bride as she makes here grand appearance.  I love the balance of structure and draping in this collection, sign me up.

Summer whites

TWR Zara Summer Whites 4

Crisp, clean and airy.  Zara has a new collection of white pieces this spring.  It’s in perfect timing for spring weddings and summer travels.  These pieces nod to a bohemian style, while still having a little edge with their plunging necklines and pleated details.  I really love the airiness of this collection.  Lighten up your wardrobe this weekend with a few summer whites.

Lace up your stripes

TWR Lace n Stripes-5

Mixing things up.  The sun has decided to grace DC with its presence, here and there at least, so now I can channel my sundress-girl life.  I loved the idea of layering lace over a print.  My faint, blue and white striped dress was the perfect mix of prints — the lace providing a soft romantic touch, while the stripes were classic and crisp.  I never knew I wore so much blue until I started blogging.  Layer up your lace to keep a breezy-cool vibe with your spring style.

Paul Smith

TWR Paul Smith Menswear Spring 2016 2

To the beat of this own song.  Paul Smith‘s Spring 2016 menswear collection took a nod towards a musical reference.  The sophisticated rocker came to life.  There was a cool factor to each look, whether it was influenced by the overly relaxed silhouettes, ultra tailored silhouettes or the combination of fabric choices.  You’ll notice a variety of prints, ranging from giant ants to plaids and screen-printed graphics.  Metallic fabrics lit up the runway, pulling the audience in to wonder — who really is this Paul Smith man for spring.  He’s different, unique, and honing in on his own style.  This man wants to be well styled but takes risks to reach beyond the expected.  He’s his own person with his own evolving style.

Which Paul Smith look speaks to your style?

*Take note of the footwear — it’s so cool and plays well into the unexpected vibe.

For those rose gold moments

TWR Rose gold moments Spring 2016

I’m crushing on pink.  Lately, I’ve been loving everything rose gold.  The slight hint of peachy-pink metal is romantic, classy and sophisticated.  I love how well it pairs with yellow gold and silver, as well. It’s my ultimate double-take color for jewelry.  Layer on a single rose gold piece for a statement, pop of color, or layer it up with other accessories for bolder appeal.  Here are a few of my favorite rose gold pieces out right now.
