Pinspiration: Color

This last weekend, my boyfriend and I visited his hometown in California. One night for dinner, his mom wore this adorable dress full of exciting color. I loved it! I also realized that my wardrobe was surprisingly monotone with all of the black, red, white and camel colors that I like to use for basics. So…with many thanks to Walker’s mom…this week’s Pinspiration is COLOR!

A word of caution to those colorful fashionistas out there…don’t go too far past your comfort zone. Mixing too many trends or splashing together too many color schemes can come out more like Mimi from the Drew Carrey show than stylish ensemble. Pick a scheme and go with it. Add some extra interest by mixing textures like the outfit below. Also, if you’re going for a daringly colorful look, think about keeping your hair, makeup and accessories pretty minimalist.

Happy shopping, fashionable friends!

Pin-spiration

This post is meant for all of you savvy Pinterest addicts out there. I, like you, love to browse Pinterest, it’s many inspirational trends and fun finds. So…in addition to my celebrity trend look alikes, I will occasionally pull a trending ensemble from Pinterest and put together a look alike for a fraction of the cost of the original. This whole outfit was originally thousands of dollars, but you can get the entire outfit PLUS all of the¬†accessories for less than $200.

Keep in mind that the minimalism of this outfit with an added punch of blue is what keeps this classic style flowing and brilliant. Style hair casually to play down the structured jacket and add a smoky eye for a touchy of mystery.

Enjoy, fashionable friends!

Fab & Frugal Deal of the Day

I love the elegance of simplicity. The art of coordinating a wardrobe at one with itself can sometimes be overwhelming, but choosing classic shapes and complementary color pallets can make it so much easier.

I love the shape of this lovely white top. The fabric is light and airy and it complements the female figure so nicely. It creates interest without exposing too much skin. The bottoms add an element of intrigue via their shimmery brocade print but keep a structured form that elongates the legs and continues the theme of simple elegance. Both of these pieces are extremely well made and fit true to size. I love them together and I think you will too.

So, without further ado, I present today’s Fab & Frugal Deal of the Day!

Happy shopping, fashionable friends!
