StyleInspiration - LAURA NEIVA

Two things are going through my mind right now:
#1 - I am SO over winter weather, colors, and layers.
#2 - I am focused on looking ahead for spring.

So here I am flipping through images of the various Fall 2013 Fashion Weeks that have already occurred and not really getting excited by the images of more fall apparel and the street style images surrounded by snow and rain - thus finding 0 inspiration. Somehow, I fell upon Laura Neiva's Facebook fan page and these two images that gave me that second wind I was looking for! Now I am SO excited to attempt recreating this look!

ShoppingTips - Vera Wang vs Three Floor

It has been an exhausting month. Many of those who know me swear the word exhausted is my favorite of the English vocabulary (not true!). With work getting busier as my mind blown away with keeping up with fashion week I have little time to spend on my delicious daydreams which lead to blog posts!
This particular post I knew I wanted to write as soon as I saw the Vera Wang Fall/Winter 2013 collection! It is remarkable how I feel Three Floor channeled the principles of Vera's looks well before the super-star designer presented her collection.

TheHandbagEdit - Wallet on Chain Chanel vs Prada

Back in June of 2012 I had a very fun night out with a few friends which ended with the loss of my trusted black Miu Miu Matelasse clutch. Though I do prefer colors to black, I have to admit a black clutch is a staple. And since I do not believe in buying the same thing twice (if its gone it must be for a reason), I have taken my time before adding a new night bag to my roster. Honestly speaking, the object of my affection has been the Chanel Wallet on Chain bag in its many forms, however, I have compromised and decided on the Prada Saffiano Wallet on Chain.

SpotlightOn - RAZAN ALAZZOUNI

Boston may not have a reputation for Stylish spawns but many a fashionable persona has been educated in this city. Case in point, Saudi Arabian designer Razan Alazzouni. I first discovered her gorgeous designs on instagram and have been obsessed with her product every since. It is a perfect balance of femininity, coquettishness & elegance. She is the younger version of a combined Oscar de la Renta, Erdem & Marchesa. Her designs have been worn by Jaime King on Hart of Dixie, Kelly Osbourne & even one of the Kardashian clan members, Kendall Jenner. I honestly cannot wait to see her designs hanging on the racks of Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue and the virtual racks of Net-a-Porter (and hopefully my closet!).
