Style Me Chic: Distressed Denim

Stacy wrote in looking for a pair of destroyed jeans, that were not boyfriend cut. She's seen so many, both high and low end, but doesn't want them to look over the top. Her only requirement is that they are a good fit, price isn't an issue. I found the following styles that have a slight distressed look to them, and all are brands that I personally know to have a quality fit.

OOTD: Layers

It's been awhile since I did an OOTD post, mostly because it's freezing outside and I got sick of posing inside, but this didn't work out as well as I planned. So disregard the crazy wind !

Aerin Lauder Shoes

While shopping for shoes to go with my rehearsal dinner dress, I came across a pair that may work by a brand named Aerin. I couldn't help but wonder if it was Aerin Lauder, and after reading the March issue of People StyleWatch, it was confirmed. Not only has the daughter of famed cosmetic giant Estee developed her own line of shoes, she has also branched out to home goods. While the line is still small (only 18 pieces), I think it has definite potential. Prices range from $148-$368.

Year of the Snake

This past Sunday marked Chinese New Year and 2013 is the year of the snake. Ironically enough, snakeskin is everywhere for spring! Collections from Tom Ford, Proenza Schouler and Stella McCartney are all highlighting the print.

Marc Jacobs+Diet Coke

Two of my favvvvvorite things! As if Marc Jacobs wasn't busy enough with his own line and overseeing the creative direction of Louis Vuitton, he has now signed on to be the creative director for Diet Coke! As DC celebrates it's 30th anniversary, a limited collection of bottles and cans designed by MJ and inspired by the Eighties, Nineties and Aughts will be available. Expect to see the campaign unveil mid-March.

“I think glamour and sex sells just about everything” -Marc Jacobs

Don't forget - Prabal Gurung's collection for Target will go on sale this Sunday!! Check out my write-up about this here.

Dolce & Gabbana: Baby Perfume

The fashion house has developed a unisex perfume for babies that is supposed to enhance the 'baby smell,' with notes of citrus, honey and melon. Stefano Gabbana describes the inspiration as "the softness of baby skin, the freshness of baby breath, a mother’s sweet hug, the first smile." Granted I'm not a mother yet, so I can't comment on if this is actually a good idea, but D&G seems to think so!

Firmoo Glasses

Only a few people know that I don't have a vision problem, but that doesn't stop me from wearing glasses. About 6 years ago I bought a pair of Kate Spade frames, with glass in place of prescription lenses. I figure I shouldn't have to miss out on a trend just because I am lucky enough to have perfect eye sight!

When Firmoo contacted me about reviewing a pair of their glasses, I jumped at the chance! I had been wanting a second pair of frames, but couldn't justify spending the money on another designer pair when I didn't actually need them. Usually I need to try them on to determine which ones will look best on my face, but their virtual try-on system was extremely helpful. I went through several hipster styles and decided on these, because they weren't too trendy that I could still wear them in my conservative workplace.

Firmoo has tons of frames to choose from, whether you're looking for something fashionable or classic, but best of all - their first pair free program. That's right - pick whatever pair you want and just pay shipping (this includes prescription lenses!). With a deal like that, why not pick up a new pair?!
