Elie Saab

I'm loving Elie Saab's 2013 couture collection...and wondering who will be wearing some of these at the awards shows this season!

Pinterest Project: Laundry Room

With all the extra time on my hands (from no longer being in grad school) I have been focusing on updating our home. My most recent project was tackling the laundry room. Pinterest was my go-to resource for inspiration, of course, and I loved the way it turned out! The only thing left to do is to put in a soaking tub in where you see the last picture.

Paint: Behr Dark Ash and Powdered Snow
Knobs: Michael Aram Shirt and Shorts 
Paper Mache Letters: Joann's
Glass globe: Wegmans
Hooks: Home Depot

Trend: D'orsay flats

These fun little flats are popping up everywhere, although I've yet to see anyone actually wearing them. What do you think of the d'orsay flat? Do you own a pair? How do you style them?

Wishlist Wednesday

I've never been much for wayfarers...but I tried these Prada sunnies on recently, and I am seriously crushing on them!

Inauguration Fashion

All eyes were on Mrs. Obama yesterday to see what who she was wearing. In the morning, she donned a Thom Browne ensemble. I love that she wears little-known designers; look how far Jason Wu has come in the past four years! However, I think it was much too modest. Luckily, the belt and those vibrant gloves added some much needed flair. Jill Biden looked fabulous in a Lela Rose jacket with the statement bow neckline.

For the ball, Michelle rocked a Jason Wu gown. Yep, again! This year's chiffon/velvet piece was a beautiful shade of red that was ideal for the evening. PS love her bangs!!!

Moisturizing Denim

Wrangler is launching a new line of denim that moisturize your legs and aim to prevent cellulite. The "denim spa jeans" come in three finishes: aloe vera, olive extract and smooth legs. Effects are expected to last up to 15 days, but a "reload spray" will also be available for purchase. The line will launch on January 28 in the UK on Asos and will cost approximately $135. Definitely an interesting concept...looking forward to hearing reviews.

W118 by Walter Baker

This past Christmas my future mother-in-law gave me gorgeous, super on-trend dress, from a brand I didn't recognize. Recently while reading People StyleWatch, W118 by Walter Baker had a whole spread dedicated to them. Even better - Blake Lively (my fave style icon) is a fan of the brand!

Prabal Gurung + Target

Yes, again! Coming off of his collaboration with Neimans and Target, Gurung will launch an 90+ piece collection on February 10th, just in time for Valentines Day. Stating the collection is "the idea of emotion and all of those things." The bright colors are perfect for spring, I just hope they don't over saturate the market, like they did with the last round. Prices starting at $29.99.

Fashion Watch: Golden Globes

I was very unimpressed with last night's fashion. As you can see below, I have more misses than hits. Hopefully things will turn around for the rest of the awards season. What did you think?

Shades of Yellow

One of my resolutions this year is to add more color to my wardrobe, starting with yellow. When I had blond hair (awful college phase), I never wore yellow because I didn't like (and still don't) the combo together. Now that I'm brunette, I really want to add that pop of color!

Wedding Wednesday: Stationary

One of my favorite things is beautiful stationary. I'm anxiously awaiting my wedding, so that I can buy new monogrammed notecards! Until then, here are the some of the pieces I will be using for the wedding.

Trend: High Tops

These fashionable sneakers are popping up everywhere, and while I love to try new trends, I just can't see myself in these. What do you think? Will you be rocking a pair this year?
