How to wear NEON

28 Jul

The hottest trend is neon, but how do you wear it without looking like you just stepped out of the 80’s.   You can accessories, wear with neutrals, or color block (this is the only time you can wear head to toe neon).

1. Accessories

Jill Sander Tiffany Sandals,,$219

Frames, Frames, Frames Everywhere

26 Jul

This was my weekend project.  I love having a wall full of photos showing family, friends, and places you have been.  There needs to be something holding the collection together so I chose to have only black frames and used black and white photos. The circular frames added some interest to all the sharp angles.  You can do this however you like just make sure there is something that brings it all together or it will just look like you just hung a bunch of pictures on the wall.  Same color frames, same style of frames, same type of pictures, etc.  To do this I arranged the pictures on the floor and took a picture with my cell phone.  Then I took the most center picture and started there.  Referring to my cell phone picture I continued hanging the  frames.  Easy!

Henri Bendel Stack Rings

25 Jul

Look at the cute stack rings by Henri Bendel.  This is my go-to place for good quality inexpensive jewelry and accessories.  These stack rings look a lot more expensive than it is and the style is simple and classic enough to last you forever.  Take  a look!

The Parker Palm Springs

25 Jul

The ONLY place to stay in Palm Springs!  Jonathan Adler designed the interior and the hotel grounds include two pools, a courtyard with hammocks, croquet court, and a giant chess board.   The Palm Springs Yacht Club (PSYC) is available for those who want to get pampered or workout.  There is a glamorous vintage feel much like most of Palm Spring and the Adler designed rooms are to die for.    You will feel like you are in an movie set or in an desert oasis and there is no need to leave when you get here.  This really is the only place I want to stay in Palm Springs.  Rooms start at around $229 and go up to $1500 for a Villa.  There are specials frequently so visit their website below to see the latest rates.

Beige is Back

24 Jul

From beige to blush NEUTRALS ARE IN.  Either you wear a lot of color right now or none.  Because beige is so safe and feminine don’t be afraid to try wearing something a bit more daring. Also, scroll down to see a previous post below- BCBG dress.

What can I say-  I love effortless style and this is what you get with these Havaiana flip flops designed by Missoni.  This is a must have for those who want to add a punch of funky color and design to your summer wardrobe.  There are espadrilles for a cute slip on version with the same pattern.  These are limited edition so get them if you can.  I checked with Missoni on Rodeo Dr. and they are out of stock!
