Boots!!

Well, boot season is definitely upon us.  With the cold temps and wet streets there’s not a better time to invest in some classic, comfortable boots.  Boots, I think, are a tricky accessory.  Most magazines always have a spread on the latest and greatest, but they never really go into how to wear a boot.  Ya, okay, there’s only a few ways to wear them, over the jean, under the jean, over the knee or stay at the ankle, but depending on your body type and height, the boot you pick makes all the difference in you looking frumpy or fabulous.

There are 4 heights in boots:  Over the knee, under the knee, at the calf or an ankle bootie.  All are equally flattering if it fits your body type.  But the key would there is: body type!  I truly believe that over the knee and at the calf are the hardest to wear boot.  I think for both these styles you have to be extremely tall and thin.  These boots cut you at a place that accentuates curves.  That’s not necessarily a bad thing if you don’t have curves, but honestly, unless I look like Giselle I won’t be wearing these styles.

The boots worn at the knee and ankles booties, I think are the most forgiving, and honestly, the most classic.  I know some of you are saying “ankles booties”, “they make my butt look big”.  But the booties are very versatile.  Pulling your jean over the boot gives you a streamline leg.  Also wearing a heeled bootie with leggings and a longer tunic or even a dress gives you a proportion that’s pleasing to the eye.

Boots to the knee are the most classic.  Whether you like it heeled or flat, you really can’t go wrong with a boot to the knee.  The only thing I think to watch out for is the size of the opening at the knee.  If it’s too big, it looks sloppy.  I also watch for the proportions of the articles of clothing I’m wearing.  If worn with a jacket at the waist, I like a longer tunic underneath.  If I’m wearing a shorter top, a longer cardigan looks modern and chic.

Regardless of what you choose, just remember to be you.  Being you is your greatest accessory. xoxo

Olivia P…Has a new show?

As most of you know I really love Olivia Palermo‘s sense of style.  When MTV announced that they wouldn’t be renewing The City, I was hopping they would be announcing her own show at the same time. Although nothing has been formally announced, the rumor is, that Olivia has a show in the works.  Her flawless style and lady like elitism is surely missed and without doubt Olivia can make a show work within her own right.  Hope you like the gallery of pics! xoxo

Soho House…

Last night I had the pleasure of attending a fund raising event at the Soho House West Hollywood.  I don’t know if most of you know, but the Soho House is a members only club.  It was founded in London in 1995 for those in film, media and creative industries.  So as you can imagine, it has that uber cool, almost brooding vibe.  It has different lounging area’s/rooms, that apparently the night before Angelina Jolie was working on her IPAD in.  Their exclusive restaurant is owned by the same people that own Cecconi’s on Melrose, and, even though, I did not see the pool in West Hollywood, the pool at the Soho House in New York is famous in of it self.  We had an amazing time and if you ever get the chance to go try not to turn it down…xoxo

Sweater Season!?

Well…being that it’s been about 100 degrees here in LA, I’m not really that motivated to be talking about sweaters.  But, as fast as it got hot, it’s sure to feel more like winter soon.

Sweaters have made a huge comeback as a wardrobe staple.  It’s definitely one of those items that you can take out of your closet year after year.  Cardigans and Knit sweater coats are pieces that I encourage people to spend money on.  Sweaters definitely run a roller coaster of trends.  Some seasons are more “trendy” for sweaters than others, but they always seem to make their way back.  There’s something esthetically pleasing pairing an old pair of boyfriend jeans with a luxurious, beautifully made sweater.  Hope it gets cold soon! xoxo
