Hey everyone! I am so sorry to those of you who have been on my site lately and noticed things weren’t working quite right.  I have been having technical difficulties which is a huge pain for someone not so tech savvy (high five creative types).  Luckily, I think we have the problem fixed now, so all is well! I am back in black Balmain!

Today I am sharing a piece from one of my favorite designers.  Balmain is one of the most coveted designers of our time.  The fashion house was started in France by Pierre Balmain in 1914 (ok now I feel like I’m writing a history paper).  In 2011 Olivier Rousteing was named creative director and the rest is hollywood, runway and editorial history.  Balmain focuses on the finest aspects of French couture with an Asian influence.  They are glam, gorgeous and highly exclusive (with those prices they can’t help but be).

Those of you who know me know I love to mix high end with affordable.  My top may be pricey, but my bottoms are cheap (not my booty, that ain’t cheap). These on trend crop flare bottoms are under $40.00. I topped the look off with a fringe Zac by Zac Posen Claudette bag my sweet girlfriends gave me for my birthday and some Dior lace up boots.  Lastly, I am wearing an amazing pair of Margret Elizabeth chandelier earring that are giving me complete Dolce and Gabbana runway vibes.  Best part is they’re semi precious, dipped in 24k gold and a lot more affordable than Dolce.

I hope I’ve inspired you somehow today!

Ann Taylor Floral Lace Sheath Dress (extra 40% off sale price)

Christian Louboutin Millaclou Studded Cage Sandal 

Dark Blue, Red and White Stripe Neck Scarf

Christian Louboutin Sweet Charity Baby Studded Cross Body Bag

Charlotte Tilbury KISSING Lipstick in Penelope Pink

I love Ann Taylor‘s effortless tailored looks.  The brand is so good at creating polished looks that are still very comfortable and wearable.  Ann Taylor allows you look so put together without all the fuss.  I feel so honored to be collaborating with the modern/sophisticated mega brand.

I love this floral lace sheath dress in fire glow orange (an almost universally flattering color).  It also comes in navy (both on sale) for all you beautiful red heads who don’t think orange is your jam.  This dress can easily by worn alone, but I chose to dress it up with this red, white and blue neck scarf and gold Christian Louboutin accessories.  A wrapped and tied neck scarf is really on trend right now and so easy to pull off.  I would encourage anyone to try it….even with jeans and a tee shirt.

I hope you have a great day!

Happy Tuesdeeeee! Actually it’s Monday night and I have completely procrastinated.  I spent a lot of time with my loved ones this weekend….which was awesome, but that is why I am up so late beginning my Tuesday (supposed to be Monday) post.  I am trying to watch the pilot episode of Better Call Saul while writing and the combination just isn’t coming together the way I pictured it in my head, so show must go!

I am in love with the dress I am wearing above.  It was given to me by my girlfriends for my birthday last December along with a Derek Lam fringe bag .  One thing I can count on, is an awesome and thoughtful gift from my girlfriends.  Not only are they beautiful and fashion savvy, they’re smart, funny, loyal and always up for a good meal…that is big for me! I feel very lucky to have good people in my life.

I think anything asymmetrical is so modern and chic.  Whether it is a a top, dress, shirt or haircut, there are a lot of different ways to wear the trend.  I topped my asymmetrical look off with two chokers (one by Zara and one by Lydell NYC) and a striped Gucci Dionaysis bag.  My love surprised me with this bag after I had been swooning over for a while.  He is a great listener and doesn’t miss much.

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you have a fantastic day!
