Once upon a time in a land known for its cold weather
Holding the phone a little too far away from your face? Tired of contact lens early morning eye pokes?
Tom Ford is my current obsession.
Totally asking Santa for Cèline’s tortoise shell round frames…oh yes, THE list is already being prepped!
Earlier this year in Italy I came across Micromega, “the most exclusive eyewear in the world”.
The designs are extraordinarily unique, and their prices are clearly living up to the description! The first picture shows a pair for 1070 euros, and the ones below are a cool 840 euros. A visit to the website is highly recommended, the creations are so incredibly artistic!
A new pair of designer specs is a faster fix on your total look that a great fitting pair of jeans (yup, going there in an upcoming post…)
Futuristic Metalics are changing outerwear.
The fact that it resembles the delorean silver car in Back to the Future is the perfect reason to profile it on Back to the Future Day!
Fall is one crazy season!
Invest in a sleeveless vest.
Put a tank top underneath. Pair it with a long sleeved t-shirt. Add a thin cashmere layer. A tailored shirt works too.
Jeans, leggings, even a tailored knee length skirt works with this piece. Add a pair of statement boots and vamanos mamacita!
Who Needs Sleeves?!?!
Bergdorf’s in the burbs? Dare to dream!
First thought that popped into my head when I experienced LEGIT activewear, an online and retail boutique in Wellesley, MA, a suburb just west of Boston.
Owner Lisa Goldberg (warning, she will instantly seem like your super fab sophisticated city girlfriend) single handedly tracks down the most intriguing design lines that will shake the lulu lemons right out of their tree!
LEGIT activewear is like the legitimizer of workout clothing. Designer clothing for actual workouts…it is like the directions on how to wear lycra are found right in the name of the store. Take what you worked out in off after the activity, but feel free to wear the gorgeous jackets, outerwear, cashmere, etc all day long.
Banging out those pre-marathon miles just got a whole lot sexier. Leggings from Lucas High, Michi, Charli Cohen with mesh, neon, ribbing, cutouts, seriously these are the clothes that make you jump out of bed and want to hit the pavement!
Spinning class outfits just got so real you are going to ask them to keep the lights on so your outfit gets appropriate admiration time. Snakeskin prints by Human Performance Engineering, and Ultracor’s Camo crops and leggings with a shock of brilliant yellow neon beg for a SoulCycle diva showdown extra long class!
A Rogue Nation is defined as a renegade state.
Try to find a more renegade state than suburban moms! United in a lack of sleep, an overflow of mommy guilt, an excess of baby bragging capabilities (irregardless of the child’s age), and a daily challenge to find the perfect uniform that works while running, chasing, laundry, cooking, cleaning, dodging body fluids and still managing to look hot. woah.
Flat. Leather. Comfortable. Stylish. Cute. Work with jeans, shorts, leather pants, skirts, whatever. Dress them up or down. Just wear them.
As an added bonus brogues allow you to wear those super duper silly adorable itty bitty no-see-um socks. Seriously, the inventor of those babies needs to win some sort of serious award.
There was a pity party happening in the suburbs.
Fashion blogger and style editor couldn’t go to NYFW. Too many commitments in my other role as a mom.
Luckily Vogue.com, instagram and the grooviest online fashion feeds allow me the super human combination of being super mama and fashion obsessed blogger all in a day’s work!
Christopher changed fashion forever when he permitted a live feed of his fashion show in February 2010. Before this landmark event fashion shows were strictly for buyers and editors and certainly NOT for suburban moms!
The greatest luxury is being able to watch live video feeds of the shows (hello phenomenal new playlists!!!), translate the fashions into suburban mom-speak and write posts for the blog, news sites and magazine, all while running the corporation of home, husband and children!
Seriously add it to your workout playlist NOW!
Other designers tapped it back in the form of nineties artists, Willie Nelson and of course using the appropriately titled “begging for threads” tee hee!
Tune in tomorrow for a posting dedicated to the simplicity of Spring 2016 Fashion. Imagine that!
