MCLV Style: Black And White Florals

Even on lovely Spring days I’m not always in the mood for color – That’s why my wardrobe has a hefty dose of moody black & white prints. They’re dramatic and eye-catching without being overly in-your-face which I especially like for hot Summer nights.

My favorite way to spice up a clean black & white look is with a statement piece – A killer necklace, a dramatic shoe, or, as in this case, a bold scarf. I raved about this fun TopShop scarf earlier this Spring {Transitioning From Winter-To-Spring} and clearly the love affaire continues! 🙂

MCLV Style: Classic Workwear

I’ve shown some love for the classic pencil skirt before {Pencil Skirt: Day-To-Night} but I wanted to share an example of my work style. No, I don’t usually wear head-to-toe black during the Spring, but it was a Friday and I prefer clothes that don’t show stains when I’m traveling! 🙂

I fell in love with this Peter Pan Top when it arrived – It’s a really versatile, fun piece. I’m a fan of Peter Pan collars and the studs are perfect for Spring, this piece looks great with jeans, shorts, or for work with a classic pencil skirt like this one.

Spring Sunglasses

With The Great Gatsby coming to theatres and Rules of Civility on my bedside table I’m in the mood for fabulous Jazz Age fashions. So with that in mind here are some fabulous sunglasses for Spring that’ll make you feel like Daisy.

WarbyParkerI

The new 1922 Collection launched by Warby Parker is something to keep an eye on – This company has been on my radar since one of the founders, Neil Blumenthal, spoke about the company and their inspiration when I was in NYC in February for IFBCON.

Their round sunglasses come in tortoiseshell and metallic frames and will suit nearly every face. You can also pick up a pair of their eyeglasses if you’re not currently in the market for sunglasses!

This sweet collection put me in the mood for some retro worshiping so here are some other gorgeous sunglasses to get you in the mood for a Great Gatsby field trip this Spring!

Vacation Planning: Spring & Summer Beauty Routine

Welcome to Part II of your Spring & Summer vacation planning guide – Check out Part I for some ideas & inspiration for fun updos and hairstyles to try on your next vacation.

When the weather starts to warm up I immediately start thinking about simplifying my beauty routine. Who wants to go to all the trouble of putting on a full face of makeup when you’ll sweat it off by 10am? This goes for daily life in the city as well as for vacations and weekends away – I want as little time in front of the bathroom mirror as possible. So as you’d think, my go-to products for this time of year are versatile ones that you can serve multiple purposes:

ArganOil

(1) Argan Oil – I cannot travel, or live really, without argan oil. It may be having its 15 minutes right now but I’ve been using it for years and highly recommend picking up a quality version like Josie Maran’s Organic Argan Oil or L’Oreal’s EverSleek. This oil can be used on your hair, your skin, your feet, your cuticles…

See what I meant about multitasking?

BBCream

(2) BB/CC Cream – When it comes to one-stop-wonders is there anything more magical than the BB and CC creams out there? Light coverage, evening out skintone, and best of all, SPF. Nothing worse than having to smooth an oily sunscreen over your face! I’ve tried a handful of different versions and so far my favorites are Maybelline, L’Oreal, and Rimmel.

ChubbyStick

(3) Chubby Stick – These little sticks are great multitaskers, you can use them on your lips, cheeks, or eyes. Perfect for a quick freshening up midday or before a night out. Clinique and Cover Girl both make lovely versions in a number of shades – I love the versions with a little coral in them!

MCLV Style: Maxi Skirts For Spring

What better way to spend a sun-drenched Sunday in Spring than wandering around a gorgeous river-adjascent backyard? The thing I miss most now that I live in San Francisco is nature – Being surrounded by trees and flowers, hearing birds and animals. This lovely house is on a cliff over the American River and between the gorgeous landscaping and hearing the river rushing past it’s utterly peaceful and relaxing.

SpringMaxiThree

When the Winter weather starts to fade my thoughts always immediately turn to maxi lengths – There’s something about having those soft fabrics wrapping around your legs that just screams vacation. I recently made a trip to Macys with a friend and while we searched high and low for the perfect pink wedges for her, I spotted this Macy’s Impulse skirt and knew that I just had to have it!

Do you enjoy wearing maxi and midi lengths during the Spring?

Looks of the Week – Shorts Edition

Does anything scream warm weather quite like a pair of great fitting shorts? I didn’t wear shorts for YEARS and last Summer was the first time I picked up a pair since Junior High, and I already find myself excited to break them out again. So let’s get inspired by some of the great shorts looks that bloggers around the world – i.e. in warmer places than San Francisco – Have started putting together for Spring.

JeanShorts

{Does it get more classic than denim shorts and a striped tee? The perfect casual warm weather look.}

JeanShortsCutOffs

{Wearing heels with shorts can be a challenge, you want the look to be chic not desperate. A pair of neutral hued heels is a great choice because it elongates the legs. Not sure how to make it work for you? This look from Donatila Rose is picture perfect – The ideal length shorts, a stylish, oversized top, and cute nude peep-toes. Perfect!}

WinterShorts

{Is it still chilly where you live? Why not add some layers and some tights to make your shorts a little more palatable?}

PeplumShorts

{Are you an innovator? Why not try a fun new style pair of shorts like these yellow & white brocade peplum pair that Sincerely Jules makes look like Summer perfection? You can find a similar pair here from BCBGeneration.}

FloralShorts

{For the girlie-girls and floral lovers out there this season will make all your dreams come true with beautiful, feminine pairs of floral shorts like this gorgeous pair from Late Afternoon.}

CutOffShorts

{Short-shorts can be a cute Summer look if done right. Not sure where to start? Yumi has the answer!}

{If you’re a fan of the throwback trend for overalls this Spring then you should try a pair of denim overall shorts – This look is a fun, stylish twist on this classic style. Great inspiration!}

Are you a fan of shorts once the weather warms up? Which of these looks is your favorite?


Spring 2013 Trend: Track Pants

My relationship with the current track pant trend is sort of like a high school relationship – It’s complicated.

On paper – I hate the idea. I like formality and classic styles so a trend that makes pants that could feasibly be worn to the gym appropriate street-wear isn’t necessarily ideal in my mind. That being said, I’ve found myself thoroughly enjoying some of the styles that I’ve seen put together lately.

My conclusion? I like them on other people, when worn right, but I will probably never head to the store expressly to buy myself a pair. It’s just not my style. But if this is your style than you’re in luck, I rounded up some great examples of just how to pull off this trend!

Enjoy the pictures my loves!

{You don’t have to feel obligated to try this trend out in basic colors or fabrics – Get creative like Camille Over The Rainbow and try out a leather pair!}

TrackPantsFashionGuitar

{Want to make your look Spring-ready? Try layering florals like The Fashion Guitar for a fun, eclectic look.}

TrackPantsOnTheRacks

{Black & white plus a pop of color is a color scheme that can easily be applied to this track pant trend – On The Racks does it write in a Letterman sweater and aqua pumps.}

SONY DSC

{If you’re not a heel girl but want to add a feminine touch to your track pants than wedges are a great option. A graphic tee is another great way to add your own personal spin to a look.}

Where do you stand on track pants? Will you be giving this trend a try?



New York Fashion Week Spring 2013 – Part I

Every season I’m at a loss as to how I should approach the fashion show reviews. There are so many that I don’t know where to start, how many I should try to review, or how to justify which shows I choose over others. It’s oddly stressful considering I’m sitting in front of my laptop in San Francisco and NOT running around the cobblestone streets of New York City in stilettos with a 50 lbs handbag.

So this season I have come up with a plan of attack. I’m going to publish four separate pieces for New York Fashion Week:

  1. The NYFW Institutions – i.e. Oscar de la Renta, Diane Von Furstenberg & Carolina Herrera
  2. The more reasonably priced or secondary designer lines – i.e. J.Crew, MARC by Marc Jacobs & Alice+Olivia
  3. New up & coming brands that I’m just discovering or which are new to the tents – i.e. Z Spole by Zac Posen, Thakoon Addition & Victoria by Victoria Beckham
  4. And finally the street style & front row fashion of the NYFW attendees

So without further ado – Welcome to the fabulous runway fashion of the New York Fashion Week Spring 2013 Ready-to-Wear shows:

BCBG Max Azria:

This collection was an interesting juxtaposition of hard against soft. The dresses all had a harness-like construction on the bodice, evoking a tough, bad-girl vibe that contrasted with the softer colors and flowing silhouettes.

Black, white, grey, and coral were the colors de jour and all the looks were paired with a wide ankle strap adorned heel in black or white. The fitted, midi and maxi-length skirts were equipped with high slits in the thin, wispy floral, lace, and paisley prints, making them utterly perfect for hot summer nights.

Peter Som:

This sweet collection was filled with great prints, bright colors and pastels, florals, flowy silhouettes and just a touch of lace. It was structured and well put together, but relaxed and fun – New York City girl meets boho chic.

The prints were chic and I loved the cropped pants – of course – and the hippie vibe throughout. I don’t think that I can say it any better than The Man Repeller: “Peter Som is punk rock tea party infused with tigers and ponies.”

Derek Lam:

I heard the phrase “sporty luxury” to describe Derek Lam and couldn’t get it out of my head – That’s the perfect description for this master of chic sportswear and exquisite tailoring. These clothes were modern and chic, I can easily picture them on streets all over the world.

Interesting fabrics and textures, bold prints, and slouchy silhouettes were the hallmarks here. Knee-length skirts and sheath dresses in brightly colored leather, all-over geometric prints, separates, and the retro-inspired midriff baring tops that were all over the runways in New York all made an appearance.

Calvin Klein:

The collection that Francisco Costa presented may have been primarily black and white but it was a far cry from boring. And a far cry from the slinky pastel numbers favored by Hollywood starlets on the red carpet last season.

These looks were sleek, body conscious, and strikingly sexy with dramatic cuts and a variety of reach-out-and-touch-them fabrics and textures including lace, satin, mesh, and leather. No florals or pastels for the Calvin Klein girl this coming Spring, she’ll be breaking out killer heels and wowing everyone with her confidence and daring.

Ralph Lauren:

The Ralph Lauren show was a combination of make-believe and reality. There were costume-like pieces inspired by Spain and Latin America – fringe, matador jackets, and ponchos – and there were chic, wearable pieces that I’m sure we’ll be seeing soon on the red carpets and sidewalks of Hollywood.

I absolutely loved the flowing, ruffle-adorned maxi dresses and skirts in stripes and bright florals, as well as the vaguely Parisian looking prim A-line skirts paired with fitted jackets, and the double-breasted, oversized suits with dramatic shoulders.

Ole!

Thakoon:

If I had to pick a single word to describe the Spring 2013 collection presented by Thakoon it would be beautiful. The cuts & silhouettes were flattering, the fabric & textures were interesting, and the prints & details were nothing short of divine.

From pretty, colorful, whimsical prints for daytime outings to daring but still utterly chic lace, eyelet, and sheer fabrics for nighttime.

A collection like this one really illustrates the difference between a designer like Thakoon and one like Lee McQueen – While I’d call them both artists the wearability of a collection like this one is unparalleled. I wait with bated breathe for the McQueen shows and gasp at the artistry and showmanship, but I can picture every single piece of this collection in my wardrobe, not something most of us mere mortals can say about McQueen.

Diane Von Furstenberg:

Who knew being a techie could be so darn stylish? DVF went geek chic this season and sent her girls down the runway in brilliant colors, prints, and flowing caftans paired with the brand new Google Glasses.

Glasses aside this collection had a classic DVF feel – Great 70’s styles & prints, flowing silhouettes that would be right at home in Saint Tropez or Marrakech, and eye-catching accessories like oversized earrings, brightly colored sunglasses, and matchy-matchy handbags. The whole collection had a delicious retro vibe that made me nostalgic for the heyday of Miss Diane herself.

Victoria Beckham:

I always look forward to the Victoria Beckham show, I adore her personal style and that chic, timeless style always shows up in her collections. And while I love – and would die to own – all of her sexy, second skin sheath dresses, I was thrilled by the amount of separates and slightly less body conscious pieces that she sent down the runway for Spring.

Everything was still sleek and sexy, with little color or prints per her usual aesthetic, but somewhat more relatable for the non-Hollywood set. I especially liked the A-line skirts and high-necklines, and the black, white, and the brilliant orange color scheme suited the austerity of the designs.

Well done!

Tommy Hilfiger:

Stripes! Stripes! Stripes! But we’re not talking about your basic, boring stripes for Spring, these are chic, retro stripes adorning flowing suits, maxi dresses, and separates in red, white, and navy.

The devil was in the details of this collection – The drama of a double-breasted, oversized suit jacket, delicate chevron prints, bright piping on a two-toned blazer, contrasting denim on denim pockets, thick weave cable knit sweaters, gold rope detailing, and flowy silk shirt-dresses. You’ve got to admit, nothing says All-American quite like Tommy Hilfiger.

Jason Wu:

Jason Wu may be best know for dressing Michelle Obama, but when a runway show starts with Carolyn Murphy strutting her stuff in a black leather mini dress you know the collection is heading in a different direction than usual.

While the primarily black & white collection was filled with leather & lace, his red lipped models also wore some killer separates and pieces with exquisite tailoring. But even the prim looks amped up the sexiness with mesh, sheer panels, studs and animal prints.

Donna Karan:

City girl Donna Karan presented an unusually soft and sweet collection pulling inspiration from the ballet which gave the pieces ethereal undertones that were further emphasized by the pale color palette.

The soft, gauzy looking fabrics, flattering drapping, sweater-sets, and pastel satins were sugary sweet and picture perfect for good-girl actresses like Reese Witherspoon, Ashley Greene, or Nicole Kidman. Among the draping and flowing fabrics were two numbers that caught my eye though – A sharp white sheath dress with a matching cropped jacket and a sexy sheer panelled navy gown perfect for a siren like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley during her next red carpet appearance.

Zac Posen:

Calling all supermodels!

The Zac Posen show was the place to be when the audience was surprised by Naomi Campbell, Angela Lindvall, Karolina Kurkova, and Coco Rocha all hitting the catwalk in his gorgeous, retro-inspired designs.

The dresses were phenomenal – From floral fifties inspired day dresses with sweetheart necklines to second-skin suits with his trademark dramatic bodice cuts, to sleek gowns in satins, florals, and chiffons. I could picture the likes of Eva Mendes and Emma Stone wearing the chic, but prim daydresses, and I guarantee that the rest of these gowns will be all over the red carpets come awards season.

Marc Jacobs:

There’s a reason that no one could stop talking about the Marc Jacobs show – It was amazing. Fabulously retro and evocative of the stylish Warhol girls of the 60’s, without appearing costumy or over the top, the kind of clothes you can really picture yourself wearing.

Loads of stripes – from thick to thin & horizontal to vertical – interesting lengths, cute separates, matching handbags, low-heeled shoes, and chic outerwear. I loved the long jackets with the high collars, the tiny shifts that us non-supermodels would need to wear slim trousers under, and the adorable pointy toed kitten heels.

Michael Kors:

Another show that emphasized stripes and had a Mod feeling to it was Michael Kors, which was brightly colored, bold, and very sporty. While it may not have been innovative, this collection showed piece after piece of very wearable clothing – For both men and women.

Stripes, colorblocking, contrasting collars, flats, wide low-slung belts, matching suits, tank & shift dresses, and separates all made lovely appearances. I may not be able to live without the green tunic & matching shorts set, it’s one of my favorite looks so far from the NYFW collections.

The menswear was fabulous – Full of color, great silhouettes, and classics styles. The men also got the stripes treatment and he showed great suits, white boat shoes, separates in the form of slacks, shorts & sweaters, and killer outerwear.

Carolina Herrera:

This light airy collection was filled with pale hues – from peach and aqua to olive-green and daffodil yellow – All perfectly ready for Spring. There were shorts, midi length skirts, trench coats, maxi dresses, gowns, and some sweet separates.

As gorgeous as CH’s gowns always are, the separates and short coats were what really caught my eye. They were chic and well-tailored, but more approachable than her collections have been in the past. The wide strap heeled sandals worn by all came in every color imaginable and thin belts cinched all of the waists. And interestingly enough, not a piece of jewelry could be seen!

Oscar de la Renta:

What I love about ODLR is his consistency – Each show will inevitably cater to a handful of crowds, from high-powered businesswomen & ladies who lunch to the fashionable young things & “It” girls that compose the celebutant set.

The splashes of colors in this collection were shocking yellow, pink, and teal – An interesting choice that worked surprisingly well. The collection was vibrant and fun with lots of beautiful textures and fabrics, and a great separates that I can imagine a few fashionistas in. Personally I’d be first in line for the thin striped dress paired with the black & white plaid coat and the sequin encrusted retro tunic & slim cropped pants – Tres chic!

Jill Stuart:

I’m always excited for a collection that pulls from Kim Basinger’s Veronica Lake look-a-like character in LA Confidential as it’s inspiration – The old school, golden age of Hollywood was such an extravagant and glamorous period fashion-wise.

You could really see that in the boudoir-feeling of the silks and slinky satins, and in the sequins, lame, and metallic brocades. While this wasn’t a “real woman” collection, there were beautiful dresses, gowns, and a few separates that will cater perfectly to a certain set.

Alexander Wang:

Wow.

Cut outs, netting, mesh, beading, lucite, sheer fabrics, leather, and garments that glowed in the dark when the lights went down. Cool club kids of the world unite! The pieces were minimalist and simultaneously dramatic and eye-catching, a feat few designers can manage.

Architectural and structured, but still fun and irreverent, all of the looks were paired seamlessly with strappy sandal-boot hybrids in black, white, or clear lucite. Definitely not looks for the average woman to wear walking down the street, but something that the cool girls that love Wang dearly can wear for a night out on the town.
