Style :: Peplum Persuasion

terrablack :: Style :: Peplum Persuasion

Though always able to appreciate this flattering shape on others, was never a fan of the peplum silhouette for myself, that was, until exactly 8:02 AM yesterday morning when my inbox received a very persuasive trend alert [from Intermix] featuring a head-to-toe look I was instantly, completely smitten with: understated, yet eye-catching, and perfectly accessorized. ♥

Adornment :: Retro Modern

While at the office, in addition to following proper dress code—showcasing your personal style is an absolute must—you also need the proper "office supplies" to increase productivity, and, according to Marie Claire, those include delicate watches, typewriter-case framed purses, and cocktail rings the size of paperweights. And yes, I completely agree.

Style :: Business Class

Netbooks and laptops, smartphones, and tablets have extended our 9-5 workday to: OPEN 24/7, and have made themselves a daily necessity as those dinner dates right after work double as meetings for which there are documents to review, conference calls to join and the 99 emails still awaiting a reply—ASAP; during this non-stop handling of business we must remain calm, cool and chic as we tow our myriad devices, with an oversized clutch as the fashionably fitting and simple solution.

From luxury apparel and accessories to home décor and, now, a couple of hotels (with restaurants featuring updated family recipes) under their multicolored woven belt, the Italian house is set to release one of the most highly anticipated collaborative collections Target has ever debuted: Missoni for Target—tomorrow. Fittingly, today's itinerary is all about Missoni . . . {More Missoni}

Chic in the City

Candace Bushnell—author and creator of the Sex and the City franchise—recently allowed Elle Décor inside her Manhattan apartment. I love that the walls, built-in cabinets and crown molding are all monotone and bright color pops up throughout with art, books, leather ottomans, a lush velvet chaise lounge, fresh flowers and other accents. Here are a few looks inspired by Candace's Manhattan space . . .

Mrs. Smith



<font size=6>T</font>his look isn't completely random; I watched Mr. & Mrs. Smith over the weekend. Angelina Jolie was pure badass calmly jumping from a 40-story window in her black trench, thigh-highs and necklace slash escape rope. Plus, I think a twill trench trimmed in leather is perfect for spring. And how cool is that claw tipped choker by Elsa Peretti for Tiffany & Co.?
