I tend to look at lingerie a little different than most would.  To me, it’s about empowering the woman and making her feel confident and sexy (followed by the ripple effect that pleases all involved).  Sure, men are extremely visual and it wouldn’t hurt them to see their woman in lingerie, but a woman can really enhance her god given power (should she choose to) with the help of beautiful intimates (for love and lemons).  Luckily, this list includes styles for EVERY budget.

As a dancer growing up, my teacher required that the girls wear a black leotard and pink tights to class.  As a fashion loving curious little girl, I asked her “why I can’t I wear cutoff sweats or bright colored leggings??”  My teacher replied “what you wear sets the tone and the tone is to be professional”.  I think at that age I already knew she was right, but naturally I had to try to push the envelope a little bit.  Whatever tone you may be wanting to set, the way you dress (under and over) will do the trick.  Happy Valentine’s Day lovers!

I was discussing turtlenecks with some of my girlfriends the other day and we came to the conclusion that half of us feel very trapped and strangled in them and the other half feels cozier than ever. It’s pretty funny how people’s perspectives vary so much (good lesson in judgement there).  Me, I am absolutely the cozy in a turtleneck type! If Steve Jobs could flow creatively and create masterpieces in them everyday, then the rest of us should at least be able to do normal people things in them, right?

 Because I live for my collection of turtlenecks, I was thrilled when they started to slowly creep back in a couple of fall season’s ago.  I received this Helmut Lang off white turtleneck for Christmas this year and I am already wearing it weekly.  The boxy shape and side slits (don’t show too much) give the classic turtle neck sweater a modern edge that is so chic.  My favorite pieces are classics with an edgy flare to them….which I why I always preach all things Vince.  Regardless of the brand, a GREAT sweater(s) in any wardrobe is a must!

The older I get the more I find myself drawn to fashion’s comfortable luxuries.  Like Linus to his blanket I am frightfully attached to my cozy Vince sweaters and knits.  I swear they are like the children of divorced parents….living equal amounts at my place and the dry cleaners.  Problem is designer sweaters and knits can add up fast! As always, it’s important to me that I offer affordable options so that there are stylish options for every budget.  Hence this Look Book Store oversized knit jacket, sweater, coat, cardigan! Whatever you want to call it, it’s stylish, comfortable and goes with almost anything.  I look at the blue tone the same way I do denim…very versatile.  It has been an item I reach for a lot lately and will crossover beautifully into spring.

Happiness is a choice sometimes, so here is to wishing you a good one! xo

Spring Curves Trend Forecast

Hi Everyone! It’s Chelsea here. Today I’m so excited to share with you this springs hottest trends straight off the runway. This past season for Spring 2015, NYFW had some trends that I was all over. I noticed a lot of neutrals, shades of blue, bohemian cuts, sheer paneling, and pops of color that I’m dying to add to my wardrobe. Below are some of my top picks that will best accentuate your curves for this springs hottest trends.

 

Au Naturale

Nudes were extremely prevalent in all of the collections. From white on white to all nude looks. I loved the minimalist yet chic vibe it gave off.

The Bohemian Movement

There were a lot of designers that incorporated bohemian patterns and cuts in their designs. I would go all googley eyed as I saw their pieces go down the runway because they had such beautiful movement. Adding further drama and presence to the look.

50 Shades of Blue

Blue was everywhere and it wasn’t one particular shade either. Everyone incorporated such beautiful shades of blues from deep and dark navys to light and airy blues. Giving you full range to use the color as you wish this coming spring

Peek A Boo

I think its pretty safe to say that every single designer had at least one design with some sort of sheer element to it. Whether it was a sheer lace or a sheer paneled top. It was everywhere and I loved it. I have got to say that this is probably one of my favorite trends because it shows off a peek of skin without being too much.

Pops of Lemongrass, Orange, and Metallic

I loved seeing pops of lemongrass, orange, and metallic on the runway. It livened up the looks and added that perfect punch of color. One of my favorite ways to add pops of color to any outfit is through accessories.

This Barbara Bui biker jacket is one of my favorite new pieces this season.  I knew i loved it from the moment I tried it on….sound like a love story??  Well it is!  Biker jackets are timeless and belong in every wardrobe.  The thing I like about this one is that it ha a lot of unique details that separate it from the classic black biker jacket.

Barbara is a French designer that has a knack for making classic pieces edgy and interesting.  Her designs remind me a bit of Alexander Wang with a more feminine feel.  Barbara is one of my favorite designers to splure on, but it’s even better when her pieces go on sale! Right now her site is offering up to 60% off (Barbara Bui Sale). 

Have a safe and happy weekend!
