Life Meets Style: Urban Shoe Paradise

20140409-130054.jpg
While I’ve never particularly identified as a “shoe girl”, I can definitely appreciate a particularly fabulous pair of pumps, a wear-everywhere boot, or a classic sneaker–especially when they’re on display. This snap from ELLE Decor showcases ALL of the aforementioned players in a quality shoe game and expertly arranges them from floor to ceiling. A little overwhelming? Perhaps. But I, for one, am totally down with the clothing-as-decor movement that appears to be sweeping through the interior design scene. Fashion and function is an absolute must for smaller spaces…and when your footwear collection is this massive and enviable, I’m sure there’s just an innate desire to show off put your sartorial goodies on display. No shame.
What do you think of this amazing space? Do you meld fashion and function or delve into style-meets-storage solutions?

Fashion Fools?

20140402-204659.jpg
If you’re at all tuned-in to the fashion blogosphere, you probably witnessed Cupcakes and Cashmere’s April fool’s tease: The Statement Anklet. While the 4/1 post date was a pretty obvious indication that we were being tricked, I have to admit that I’m actually a little bit upset that this “trend” is a hoax! After all…those ubiquitous statement necklaces of yesteryear HAVE been taking up more space in your jewelry box than on your neck as of late, no? Plus, nothing jazzes up a bare leg like some jewels, right? 😉 K, maybe not, but I’m all about a little ankle icing every now and then. I mean THESE?! Kind of fabulous. Honestly, if this trend catches on, I won’t hate it.
Were you a victim of any April Fools shenanigans yesterday? Any similarly awful-but amazing styles you secretly love?

Saturday Night Style Inspiration: Details Galore

20140329-212626.jpg
What’s the first thing you notice when you glance at this image? A back full of bows? The iconic Chanel bag? Maybe the wide-brim hat? This look has a lot going on. From the perfectly highlighted, bed-head mop tucked under the aforementioned wool hat to the fingerless gloves, I love the casual juxtaposition of classic, tailored lines and pieces with more effortless and relaxed shapes. And those details! There are style elements to look at everywhere. Perhaps it’s more suited for a Sunday brunch or Saturday-day out shopping, but it’s still totally inspirational. After all, that effortless, cozy-chic vibe always has a certain appeal and a little Chanel never hurt anyone, right? 😉
What are you wearing tonight?

Mani Monday: Give Me The Eye

20140310-155324.jpg

You know how sometimes you see something–in fashion or otherwise–that isn’t exactly in tune with your personal aesthetic, but you somehow love it anyway? This manicure is that for me. This week’s nail art is the epitome of eye-catching with super bold prints on each individual digit. On-trend, captivating, and artistic? Definitely mani-Monday worthy. Personally, I’d file these long-lashed, bright blue eyeballs under “creepy cool” and call it a day.
What do you think of this manicure? Would you rock something similar?
