ShoppingTips - Three Floor Shine On Dress

I have this thing, by where, when I spot a piece of clothing or accessory I love, I literally cannot stop thinking about how would I style the piece. I first spotted Three Floor on the fashionable Ashley Madekwe (you might know her by her performance on the hit show Revenge). In my eternal search for an evening gown for an event I have in December I decided to check out Three Floor's website. Whilst I did not find a gown, I did find two pieces I became smitten with (click here for their Young Heart dress). Below is my outfit rendition to the Three Floor Shine on Dress!

Items to be worn:
1. Three Floor Shine on Dress approx $271 (image via Three Floor)

QOTD - Wallis Simpson (W.E. film edition)

She has been referred to as one of The Best Dressed Women of all time by Vanity Fair, but for those not fashion obsessed she is simply known as Wallis Simpson - the woman whom a king abdicated his throne for. After watching ten minutes of Madonna's film W.E. I was hooked! the plot perfectly intertwines two love stories & contains oodles of style, as well as charming quotes. Below is my favorite line spoken in the film as said by the character of Wallis Simpson.

StyleInspiration - HEDVIG OPSHAUG

I have a weakness for number crunchers turned style stars. Completely based on the fact I both study and work with numbers but have a not so secret affinity for fashion. So, naturally the Norwegian native Hedvig Opshaug (now London resident), former banker turned fashion freelancer, fast became a fave upon discovery. Style New York Fashion Week Spring-Summer 2013 is far from over, while Taylor Tomasi Hill is a reigning star (can you say wow for her shorts + trench + bright nails?), I was more excited to find the image below amidst's seasonal street style feature by Tommy Ton. Honestly, though I have been a follower of Hedvig's style on Lookbook, I did not know much about her until The Telegraph did a piece on her back in July. For interesting tidbits see below...

StyleInspiration - ALAIA ROSE BARBIER

Alaia Rose is a strong example how style transcends age. I discovered this stylish tot over the weekend on Instagram & after some research realized there is no way this young lady could be anything but a trendsetter. Her mom is fashion stylist Monica Rose aka the person behind the Kardashians & Giulana Rancic's fabulous fashion sense & dad is Sal Barbier the most stylish street skater & shoe designer. Here are some of my favorite looks by young Alaia which we can all use as inspiration for this transitional dressing period. (Bonus: You can now see young Alaia's enviable closet on The Coveteur!!)
