Here comes the Fall

Every season I like to update my wardrobe with a few key pieces. Here is what I am going to be looking for this fall:
Metallic jeans like these Mother skinnies I spotted at Nordstrom

Black and gold outfits – I probably already have this in my closet and you do too, this will probably be the easiest trend to follow this fall. I had to share these amazing black and gold Jimmy Choos I found:

Studded bags…….I’m in love with the entire Valentino fall/winter collection

Booties especially ones with laces that resemble sneakers…..I just got a pair from Bluefly and am beyond excited for them to come. 

 I’m planning to pair them with some faux-leather leggings, and a fun tank like this one that I just got from Bebe.

Leather….preferable faux-leather. I’m a big fan of patent leather legging or an awesome biker jack like this one from J Brand



How are you planning to update your closet for the fall? Do you update your closet every season?

I recently returned from a FAH-BULOUS trip to LA. I was there for a wedding and of course I had to stop by Robertson Boulevard for some much needed shopping. Unfortunately I only had a few hours to spend there and wasn’t able to walk into every single store, so I stopped by stores that are not available near me like Kitson. In my past trips to Kitson I haven’t always been lucky, but this time I snatched a super cute Alice & Megan lace mermaid skirt. I’ve been looking for a skirt like this for a long time actually. I love that it’s classy enough for a dinner with friends and fun enough for a night out. I can’t wait to wear it and share with you all🙂

I also visited some of my other favorites like Splendid, Alice & Olivia, Tory Burch, and Beach Bunny, but wasn’t smitten with anything there.
 
I was beyond excited when my husband and I went to Sur to grab lunch and we spotted the fabulous Lisa Vanderpump, which wasn’t too much of a surprise since she is the owner. I definitely recommend Sur, its delicious and reasonably priced unlike The Ivy right down the street.
 
Leana and I got to see one of our cousin’s for dinner…..check out our outfits! What do you think of my neon pink skirt?  <3Masha

Dressing my way through Europe

I took a little break from the blog in the recent months. Leana got married and her wedding was absolutely beautiful. Needless to say we were both a little preoccupied with all the last minute details. But we are back……yayyyy
This week instead of writing about what we should wear I thought I would write about what I did wear….

I recently came back from an absolutely fabulous Mediterranean cruise! Before I left I spent at least a few hours  with my amazing friend, Esra, planning my outfits for each destination on the cruise. We googled the fashion of each of the cities I was going to visit and planned my outfits accordingly. So here they are, and the reasons behind what I chose:

From my past trips to Europe, I knew St. Tropez is a posh resort destination, so I decided to wear white shorts with a bright tank. The shorts and the tank are both from Charlotte Russe, my sandals are Dolce Vitta. I added a pair of white Dior sunnies to add a little fab to my outfit. That’s me outside of the Dior restaurant and boutique, the shopping in St. Tropez is beyond amazing!

For our stop in Cannes and Monte Carlo, I chose this maxi dress from Forever 21 paired with a big white hat that I got in Playa del Carmen on our honeymoon, and a Michael Kors bag. My outfit made me feel fabulous and sophisticated…..I think it was the hat. Since Cannes is the site of the Cannes film festival (that’s me outside of the convention center below), and Monte Carlo is the ultimate playground for the rich and famous, I felt my outfit was perfect. It was also incredibly comfortable which was my other objective in planning this outfit. I knew it was going to be hot, and we had to do a lot of walking. My maxi dress was perfect because I could hide my more casual sandals.

I accessorized with gold hoops, an amber and gold statement necklace, gold watch by Michael Kors that my beautiful sister gave me for my birthday a few years ago, and my favorite Oliver Peoples oversized sunnies🙂

When we went for a wine tasting in Tuscany, I chose a more comfortable outfit. I wore pink AG jeans with a top from H&M. These AG jeans, called “The Stilt”, are more comfortable than a pair of sweats and were perfect for the long bus ride through the Tuscan countryside!

For Rome I chose a pair of the same AG jeans, but in a different, brighter color that I felt was very “Italian”. When I think of Italian fashion, I always picture very bold colors, so my almost neon coral pants felt perfect. I paired them with a striped Design History top (that I snagged on Gilt.com a few months ago), and gladiator looking sandals by Vince Camuto which I thought were very appropriate for Rome.  I have to say even though the pants were incredibly comfortable I felt like I was going to melt, because Rome in July feels like an oven. Thank God it’s dry heat so you can still breathe.

For our day in Capri, I chose a pair of True Religion white capris with a shirt from Armani exchange. I wanted to wear something white to this exquisite island, but had to add some color of course🙂

Obviously I went on this trip with my very handsome hubby and I have to share my favorite outfit that he wore….I love LOVE him in these Hugo Boss linen pants, True Religion slim fit shirt, Ferragamo shoes, and Louis Vuitton belt.  He wore this to a white party on our cruise ship.
What do you think of my outfits?

Minty Fresh

20120424-162722.jpg This season, a lovely new hue is emerging: mint green. It’s a fresh and wonderful alternative to white or neutral shades, and adds just a little hint of soft color to any outfit. Because its a pastel, its easily matched and will work with most other colors in your closet. <;3 Masha

Work and look fabulous!

Most of us spend the majority of our time during the week at work, yet when it comes to fashion we tend to focus on outfits that we would wear outside of the office.

AG Jeans Obsession

AG – Adriano Goldshmied jeans have recently exploded and I can tell you why….they are amazing! I recently snagged a pair of their dark wash skinnies and I’m addicted. They are super comfy and fit great. This past weekend I stumbled upon an AG store at The Pier in Atlantic City and got my hands on not one, but two of their colored denim jeans called “The Stilt”. The material is incredibly soft and comfortable, its feels like you are wearing pajamas. When it comes to jeans, fit is what it all comes down to, and these are definitely worth a try. The material is stretchy, so you may want to try a size smaller than what you usually get. They also have a very nice color selection. I had stopped at True Religion and Scoop NYC but was disappointed with their colored denim variety. Scoop only had 2 colors and True Religion had a few more, but nothing really fun unlike the selection at AG. Check out the AG website for stores near you, also most major department stores carry them like Bloomingdales, Nordstrom, and Niemans. You can also get them online from AG directly: http://www.agjeans.com, http://www.revolveclthing.com, and http://www.shopbop.com. Happy shopping and if you get a pair let us know what you think! <;3 Masha ;
