I JUMP For Polka Dots!

March 05, 2011
 Okay, you can call me psychic. I have not worn this blouse by Julie Haus since last spring/summer, but I dug it out of the "best of Laura's Closet" archives yesterday not even knowing how much of a huge trend polka dots are right now! (according to style.com) Most ladies know that polka dots are always on trend, no matter what the season. They are one of those prints that we call CLASSIC, which is something that I am always drawn to without even knowing sometimes. CLASSICS are TIMELESS which is why they are a good investment.
<p>
Oooooooh, how fabulous are these! Both are by Miu Miu
As we all know, certain pieces give me heart palpitations. This polka dot chiffon blouse by Thakoon is one of them! GORGEOUS!
 I would totally carry this half moon cross body bag by Chloe Sevigny while wearing this effie polka dot blouse and pencil skirt by Kate Spade.
<p>
And I would totally sport this cuff bracelet by John Hardy while wearing this luxurious polka dot jumpsuit by Diane Von Furstenberg. Now I just need to catch the next flight to Barbados!

Flowers Make Me HAPPY!

February 28, 2011
Last week I noticed that my geranium was beginning to bloom in my sunny dining room window. A sudden burst of happiness came over me!What is it about flowers that make us feel so good? I think it has something to do with the gorgeous colors they are born with, don't you? 
I know most people think it is a bit too soon to begin wearing flower prints. But why? I say wear flowers in the middle of winter if it makes you feel good! I did wear black tights with this floral skirt, but believe it or not, my first thought was NOT to make this look seem a little more winter like. I just liked the contrast of the black tights with the brights!
All of my recent dreams of flowers led me to design these "Fleur Rouge" earrings from Laura's Style Boutique. They are the first design from my "Fleur" collection for spring 2011.
I will soon begin to carry this floral tote from Talbots. What is stopping me from carrying it right now, you ask? Well, it really isn't big enough to carry all of my winter gear which is still pretty necessary right now in the northeast. 
I designed  these earrings for my friend Carrie. I actually took apart and old pair that she didn't like and redesigned them for her :)
 These beautiful bracelets are by Bobbi Originals. I wear these no matter what season we are in. They make me feel pretty!
 These are my flower rings that I love, wear, and adore.

Houndstooth ~ It Will NEVER Go Out Of Style!

February 25, 2011

 This gorgeous model is wearing a houndstooth suit and bowler hat by Chanel, 1969, London. I would totally wear this today! This is an exceptional example of timeless elegance

<p>
<p>
  I was very inspired to wear my houndstooth blazer today by another fashion blog that I read on a regular basis. Trends for the Masses (TFTM.) You may or may not have heard of it. Either way, you should check it out. Very inspiring. Especially if you are at a loss on "what to wear." I also dug out my "spring" bag. I am rebelling against this winter weather we are still having in the northeast! (Yes, it is still snowing here. We just got an additional 6 inches or more today! I have lost all of my faith in Mr. Groundhog!)
I always try to match my coffee mug to my look. Don't you?! 
(Just kidding. I really don't do this. But today I really found it interesting how cool my black cat mug looked next to my jacket!)
 This is R&B artist Monica wearing the most gorgeous houndstooth blouse by Alexander McQueen. How lovely :)
Britney Spears (left) and Hayden Panettiere (right) wearing super cool and timeless houndstooth coats.                           
<p>
The GORGEOUS Kim Kardashian wearing a touch of houndstooth in a scarf. She knows that a little goes a long way!

The Runaways {These girls didn't have it easy, however they sure kicked butt with their music!}

{Dakota Fanning as Cherie Currie from The Runaways}
Talk about being in the right place at the right time!!! These girls had a dream and it was all in the cards for them. What a crazy time to be in an all girl band! The late 1970's. WILD times. Not that now isn't. You know what I'm talking about. Life was different back then. Some of the best music was produced and will never be replicated. But now it seems like everyone is trying to replicate everyone else. Thats why I like fashion so much. Fashion lets us be our own unique rock star selves, without the drugs, which we can all do without. Fashion is our drug!
This Diane von Furstenberg Syrah Blouse is oh soooo Cherie!
 Don't you think Cherie would have worn this fabulous Mod Squad Kylie skirt by Kate Spade and these Three-Tone Platforms from Marc by Marc Jacobs?? 
<p>
 Dakota Fanning as Cherie Currie and Kristen Stewart as Joan Jett
I am loving her make-up. And her scarf! Really rock star pretty.

Her style was so Bowie.

Spring 2011 Handbag Trends ~ (You know you want one ;)

February 23, 2011
 {See by Chloe}
crossbody

 Crossbody bags are totally trendy for Spring 2011! Finally a trend that is practical too! I have always loved cross body bags. They make life a heck of a lot easier for those of us who like to have our hands free when we are doing things like SHOPPING! Not that I have been doing a lot of that lately. None of the fun kind anyway. The only kind of heavy duty shopping I have been doing has been at the grocery store. A girl can dream though, right? Well these are the crossbody bags that I am dreaming about:
{see the photos above and below}

I am also seeing a huge trend in neutral handle bags. I love these babies.

This neutral bag is really cute and a little more affordable than the others. It sort of reminds me of a Valentino bag, hence the bow.

Metallic bags are also en vogue at the moment. Then again........when are they not. It seems like you can never go wrong with a bit of sparkle and shine!

BRIGHTS are also fun to carry this spring! They can be great for those ladies who are a little timid to actually wear bright colors. These brights look fabulous on your shoulder when you are wearing neutral colors.
