Baby it’s cold outside!

As we welcome in 2012
we welcome frosty mornings and colder days.
The chance for snow becomes greater
and the chilly air puts a hop in your step.
To weather the weather you’ll need your best coat;
plus coordinating hats, gloves, and boots.
Take a cue from 60’s fashionistas
and deck out your outerwear.

Make Over Your LBD

You’ve just been invited to a holiday party
and have basically no time to shop.
So you grab your fave Little Black Dress from your closet
only to realize you wore it to a previous event with the same crowd!
Of course you can’t pull an outfit repeat,
but how do you change the look of one piece?

Feminine : a splash of color never hurt!
(Purse by Vanessa $16, ring $20, necklace by Jill’s Jewels $24, belt by Carlisle $28, boots by Juicy Couture size 6.5 $98, dress by Ann Taylor size 4P $32)

(Handbag by Whiting&Davis $28, bracelet by Jaclyn Anthony $35, earrings by Jill’s Jewels $20, heels by Guiseppe Zanotti size 9.5 $250, dress by Parallel size 4 $36)

Classic: vintage details add unexpected uniqueness to a modern dress.

(necklace by Tiffany $250, ring $38, belt by Talbots NEW $22, handbag by Prada $140, heels by YSL size 39 $220, dress by Trina Turk sizes 2 & 4 NEW $134)

Sunset Shades for Winter Days

Winter blues got you wearing black?
Sick of sporting the same dark shades?
Take a look at the sky, then at your closet,
and be inspired by Sunsets.
This look is warm enough for the weather
but with colors like this you can’t help but smile!

(Left: Etienne Aigner handbag $38, Nine West flats $16, vintage Edge I Wear sunglasses $20, necklace $16, Ellen Tracy size 8 coat $38, Jones New York skirt $28, TSE size M cashmere sweater $98)

If you gaze toward the sky just before dark
you’re bound to see warm reds
and the subtle outline of clouds…

(Right:Hobo handbag $42, J. Crew belt NEW $28, Michael Stars scarf $16, Beverly Feldman size 8 shoes $56, Smythe jacket $220, Tracy Reese skirt $68, Neiman Marcus sweater $78)

Try a bit of color-blocking
with the colors of a sunset.
You’ll end up with a more Mod look,
rather than the typical ombré interpretation.

(Left: Oliver Peoples sunglasses $120, Dooney&Bourke wristlet $18, MRKT size 8.5 heels $44, Fossil jacket $32, J. Crew sweater $48, Magaschoni size 6 pants $98)

Sunsets…Rainbows…same thing, right?
The idea is to get you wearing brights.
Recently its felt kind of like Spring,
but we all know it’s Winter and that means dark shades.
Break the habit! Do something different!
Designers are already planning a Spring
of somber shades & dusty hues.
Why not turn the table both ways?

(Left: Car Shoe handbag $288, Pashmina scarf $28, ring 8$, Valentino flats $128, Missoni twin set size 44 $220, J. Crew corduroy pants $22)
