Isabel Marant AW13 Boot of the Season

March 11, 2013



Trust me on this one - these Isabel Marant boots are THE boot of the AW13 season.  Isabel Marant's AW13 show was nothing short of spectacular during Paris Fashion Week.  I am always a huge fan of her collections but this season was a different cool factor that went down the runway.  A change from her previous collections focusing on all things Americana (ie. cowgirl and Hawaiian), this collection was more European and for me very Parisian chic.

And now, let's talk about these boots.  Every season no matter the shoes, Isabel Marant's wedge heels, ankle booties and velcro-strap sneakers are always backordered or out of stock.  For the AW13 season, I predict will be no different especially with these these boots - a play on her well-known wedge heel and velcro sneaker.  Luckily for everyone reading MFS, Moda Operandi's Isabel Marant trunk show went live today where these boots are available for preorder and delivered straight to your door come Fall.  See the trunk show here and cut the line!

Trend: Mini bags craze

March 8, 2013



 

The best of the mini bag craze!  Don't be fooled from the images - all the above bags are teeny-tiny compared to their standard tote-sized counterparts.  So, a tote as a mini bag?  I had my reservations as I like a big bag for the daytime.  It's not even that I carry around a lot of things, but I like the option!  So how do I wear this mini bag, day or night?  Out to dinner, to work, to go shopping, etc?  I have found they work and look best when you are walking around casually over the weekend as a pure statement piece.  Almost all have a long enough strap to go cross-body or at least long one shoulder.  Easy to wear, definitely.  A trend of the moment?  I think so.  Love it or hate it?  Tell me what you think.

Perfect wing tip eye

February 27, 2013


I’m really into the wing tip eye these days.  It’s not a new look by any means but one that has been a consistent beauty trend over time and that I have seen all over the AW13 runways. For me, the key to success to achieve the perfect wing tip eye is all in the choice of liquid eyeliner. YSL’s Shocking False Lash Effect Eyeliner is my choice!  A great guide below I found on how to use this wonderful bold felt-tip pen to achieve this look easily and with perfection time and time again.

lasgodivas by The PR Series

February 12, 2013

With only a few more days of NY Fashion Week left, I wanted to introduce a new favorite NY-based jewelry label The PR Series. Above is one of my favorite pieces from the new collection titled lasgodivas. Named after the famed Godiva chocolate these custom made earrings ooze downtown ruggedness meets uptown glamour, my all-time favorite combination in styling.  Speaking to the designer Pili, she explained her "fascination with geometric shapes and mosaics" in creating this piece.  As for me, well, I just am fascinated by The PR Series.

For more on The PR Series see here and on lasgodivas see here.

Closet clean up

February 5, 2013


So this is my closet, well, ... my dream closet.  But I did come up with a new idea on how to update my closet to someday look like this one.  It was 7:30am last week and not thinking my best, I rummaged through a pile of clothes on the floor trying to get dressed for work.  "Ah, I don't have anything to wear!" Can you relate to my moment of frustration: Too many clothes and none that you like?  

I started thinking what can I do practically to solve this problem without going out and buying a new wardrobe.  I decided to choose one piece in my closet each week that I have not worn for at least 6 months and create an outfit using it.  Doesn't sound very hard right?  If you can make an outfit with the piece and comfortably wear it the entire day without second guessing it, keep it in your wardrobe otherwise toss it!  Has proven to be an easy and pain-free way to slowly clean out my closet and find the pieces I actually enjoy wearing.  I can tell you one piece is already out the door!  Let's just hope that I don't replace it anytime soon.

Fresh Sake Bath

January 29, 2013


I have been using Fresh products for years (mentioning the wonders it has done for my hair here) and am so excited to share my newest Fresh product obsession: Sake Bath.  The soak eases body tensions and detoxifies while the scent calms - achieving all the perfect elements of a hot bath.  And it really does work!  Fresh is known for using natural ingredients in its products such as sugar, milk, soy and rice.  And did you know the company is part of the LVMH group?  Truly luxury in a bottle.  Find it here and let me know how it worked for you.

Spring is around the corner (or at least that is what I keep telling myself as the weather just dropped significantly in London and snow is on the horizon tomorrow)!  My newest discovery with womenswear label SUNO has my eye happily focused on Spring.  My obsession with my favorite trends of 2012 (see post here) continues with SUNO's SS13 collection.  Peplum and silk blouses (PJ-inspired obvi) along with tailored jackets to give an edge will be my look this Spring.  See more from SUNO available soon at NET-A-PORTER

Put your feet up in Louboutin

January 9, 2013




After a long yet hopefully productive day at work, there is nothing better to me than coming home and catching up on the latest fashion magazines, watching my favorite TV series in the background and putting my Louboutin-clad feet up.  Trend alert for Spring: must have stripes!

Barneys New York Electric Holiday

December 24, 2012



I went to Barneys New York yesterday in San Francisco to do some last minute shopping and came out with a nicely sized Electric Holiday shopping bag (the current holiday campaign between Barneys and Disney).  However, it wasn't apparent to me the relevance of Barneys Electric Holiday campaign with Disney until later on in the day when I watched this video.  Barneys is a luxury department store and Disney is the creator of our childhood stories and fantasies.  What is to gain by these two companies efforts in the key gifting period of the year except maybe to support Barneys childrenswear division?

How wrong was I!  The partnership is clearly aimed at adults.  It is a playful representation of the fashion industry and an innovative change from the more serious and exclusive image usually portrayed by the fashion industry.  Watching Minnie Mouse take the catwalk in Paris modeling Lanvin with Suzy Menkes, Sarah Jessica Parkera and Glenda Bailey to name a few in the audience is so much fun!  So many more surprises so push play above and enjoy the current fashions with the magic of Disney.    

Fabulous Fashion Find: Tod's Gommino

December 22, 2012


Every woman owns a pair of flats but are they these super-stylish Tod’s Optical Geometrics Gommino loafers?  I think not as these are a special holiday limited edition!  What a perfect last minute gift if you are all out of ideas for the extremely difficult to shop for “Woman-Who-Has-Everything."  Tod's has always been at the top of my list of go-to shoe brands as I am a lover of the classic loafer they do so well (case in-point here)!  I am off last minute holiday shopping in San Francisco tomorrow and will be definitely stopping by myself to pick up a pair.  See more at Tod's and available in stores now.
