Glowing in Gold

This week's post is an ethereal meets Moroccan desert theme.  When bringing this piece together I imagined myself gracefully walking through the desert adorned with jewels and what else I might be wearing and quickly my accoutrements came to me. The dress (being the center piece of the outfit) was the basis for the color story of this post: gold (almost a mustard gold, even).  With a dress that is a bold solid color you have more opportunity to adorn it with accessories, unlike a dress with a pattern or mixed colors.  So I knew I had the perfect pair of strappy stilettos: Marc Jacobs in gold snake skin, to match this dress.  I found these treasures a couple of years ago in a consignment store in NYC!  What a find!  I also knew my…

“I got it from my Mama:” Mother’s Day 2013

That Will.i.am is quite the clever one isn't he? To quote the wise lyrics from the 2007 Will.i.am song: "I got it from my Mama," this post is dedicated to my 'mama.' (Actually watching this video on a Tuesday morning is pretty great.) This past Sunday (Mother's Day 2013), my mom, Dad, and I got dressed in our Sunday's best for some traditional Dim Sum. (A treat the three of us enjoy very much; although I am still perturbed they were out of steamed pork buns.) Anyhow, my outfit is a mix of old and new all in whites and creams to keep things in the spirit of Spring.  My cardigan is a Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent and the dress is by Theory.  The necklace is a gift my mother game me recently, and of…

Parisian from Head to Toe

I mentioned in one of my earliest blog posts how enamored I am with the Parisian brand: Maje.  I first discovered them in NYC where stand alone stores were popping up all over the city and where they have shop-in-shops at Bloomingdale's.  Word on the street (and by 'street' I mean Twitter), is that there is a store coming to SF?! Anyhow,  I have a handful of their dresses and tops and my affinity for the brand has just continued to grow.  I recently found the piece I'm wearing, in this post, and was immediately intrigued by the dress' concept and design: it's a dress that appears to be a skirt with a tucked in top, but is actually a one-piece!  Another surprise element to this piece are the pockets; pockets always add an…

Turquoise & Pale Pink

What a beautiful day to wake up and smell the flowers!  I recently acquired a stunning pair of turquoise laser cut stilettos and immediately knew what I had to wear them with: pale pink. (It's normal to build your outfit around your shoes, right?)  Well this is 'My Stiletto Life!'  I paired the pumps with my flirty A.L.C dress, a Theory blazer, and a unique necklace I bought in Argentina last year from a jeweler at a street fair.  My outfit was complimented by a sunny day in the park. DETAIL SHOT Admiring my stilettos from above:  I want them in every color! Dress: A.L.C, Blazer: Theory (click on 'Theory' link to find blazer I wore in my post!), Shoes: B Brian Atwood (see the same shoe and different colors of it, I want them all!),…

It’s a Stiletto Kind of Day…

On a beautiful Bay Area day it only seemed fitting to head out to Tiburon, CA and stroll the quaint streets and enjoy some fresh seafood.  Tiburon provided the perfect background for my loose fitting silk pants and a breezy white sweater.  And as always I'm equipped with my stilettos and my bright red tote. Essie polish: 'ballet slippers,' with my JewelMint ring. My lovely production assistant slash mom got in front of the camera for a few. One of the adorable stores in Tiburon called Paparazzi.  I got on the other side of the camera for this one! Thoughts: best place for a shrimp cocktail?  Lipstick by Bobbi Brown in 'Calypso.' (A tangerine lip is a must-have for spring.) Here's my answer: a popular establishment among the SF folks! It's a beauty!  Fresh…
