Vintage Glam

My fur collection is borderline out of control for a girl who lives in Phoenix. There is something about a vintage fur and pearls that makes me think of old Hollywood Glam. I think it’s because my grandma use to wear them and to me, she’s the ultimate definition of classic glamour.  Thankfully because of the chilly weather I have been able to wear them! <3vintage fur coat house of harlow sunglasses vintage fur coat vintage fur, vintage dress vintage dress

Vintage Christian Lacroix

On Sunday I headed over to the Union at the Biltmore to view the AMAZING vintage Christian Lacroix collection.  The pieces were so bananas I had to take a minute and soak it all in. The ornate detail and over the top bling was on another level.  The collection is everything from purses, rings, gloves, sunglasses, and earrings.  All of these items were worn in the 80’s on Lacoix’s runway.  Sunday was the last day of the exhibit here in Phoenix. I asked where they will be traveling to next and it looks like you too may be able to oooooo and ahhhhhh over these fab jewels.  Some of the collection will continue to travel across the country and a majority will be displayed at the Barney’s in NYC.  vintage christian lacroix vintage christian lacroixvintage christian lacroixvintage christian lacroix

Weekend Uniform

Good Morning loves!

I hope you all had a nice weekend. Dapper Fellow and my parents were out of town so I took advantage of my alone time to get a bunch of stuff done. I had a pretty girly Sunday filled with shopping and pampering and feel so prepped and ready for the week! Today’s look is a weekend go-to of mine. The weather has been up and down so layers are a must. I also can’t seem to take off my Gap distressed boyfriend/skinnies lately. halogen cashmere gap boyfriend jeans tracy reese bag stripped equipment blouse

Prabal Gurung Dress

Unless you’ve been living under a rock EVERYBODY knows about the fab Prabal Gurung/Target collaboration.  I picked up this little number a few days after the launch.  This was the first Target collaboration I made an effort to stop into within the first week. I loved almost everything from the line. Prabal’s designs are so unique and bright. The New york-based designer has been consistently wow-ing us since his first collection debuted in 2009. His design philosophy is characterized by a mixture of modern luxury, indelible style and an astute sense of glamour.  Here is how I styled his drop waist dress…prabal gurung for targetPrabal Gurung For Target Drop Waist Dress in First Date PrintPrabal Gurung For Target Drop Waist Dress in First Date Print

Floral & Polka Dots

This past weekend it was 85 in Arizona.  Spring is in the air! It was nice enough to lay out, wear shorts, and get a suntan. I have worn both of these items several times before, just never together. Last year around this time was when I first began mixing prints. I remember feeling so weird about breaking the traditional rules of matching.  Are you comfortable mixing prints? Is it something you’ve wanted to try, but didn’t know how? I discovered a few tips that helped me out a lot along the way that I shared with you here if you’re interested in checking them out! I would love to know your feedback. :)

**You can see this blouse also styled here and these shorts last seen here. **

Tuxedo Pants

Good Morning loves!

First thing is first, I am extending the Nordstrom Sunglasses giveaway until Friday March 8th!!! So hurry your cute little bum over and enter here! I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend! Dapper Fellow and I relaxed at home, visited with family and did some serious cleaning around the house.  :)

Today’s look is another Black & White combo that I cannot get enough of.  I love these tuxedo pants and felt this vintage blouse was a perfect compliment.  I can’t get enough of the tailored lines and minimalistic styles! Remember these Chanel earrings I wore on NYE? I wanted to get one more wear out of them before I take them to be sized. What is your favorite trend for Spring?
