That Sunshine In My Pocket

Yellow is my absolute favorite color and has been ever since I moved past my pink and purple obsession in kindergarten.  Ha! So when I saw this cute dress that was yellow, off-the-shoulder, and only $33, I knew it must have been made for me.  But don’t worry, if you’re not a yellow fan (which I know everyone is not) it also comes in black.  But no matter the color, it is seriously so cute and SO comfy. Pretty much the perfect go-to dress to throw on day or night.

Mellow Yellow

Contrary to popular belief, pink is my 2nd favorite color.  In fact, it’s yellow that has always had my heart.  So when I saw this coat, I knew it was perfect for me.  Plus, there is nothing better than a candy colored coat to brighten up a dreary winter day.  And for all of you out there who don’t like or can’t wear yellow, you’re in luck, because this also comes in pink, teal, black, and winter white.  PLUS it’s on sale!

Sunshine

I am a huge fan of pink, but it’s the color yellow that will always be number one in my book.  So when I saw that my favorite shirt comes in a brilliant shade of yellow for Spring, it was a total no-brainer for me.  And while I dressed it down today with my favorite military vest, I am already scheming up more ways to wear this fabulous shirt!  Don’t love yellow? Don’t worry.  This blouse comes in a multitude of colors and is the perfect top to add to your closet for work OR play!

Sunshine and Lace

I love a good deal.  In fact, I take pride in my bargain hunting skills.  So it should come as no surprise that I am a big fan of deal of the day websites.  And one of my current favorites? jane.com!  They have the perfect selection of jewelry, accessories, apparel, and home decor.  And not only are their prices fantastic, but they add new items to the site everyday. This yellow lace top is one of my favorite finds to date and has been on frequent rotation in my closet this summer (especially paired back to light wash denim!)! So be sure to stop by jane.com and check them out-there is sure to be something for everyone!

Connect The Dots

The combination of gray and yellow is one of my all-time favorites.  And when you add polka dots, a pop of leopard, and distressed denim into the mix, in my book, it’s a pretty perfect ensemble(not to mention ideal for the weekend!)…

Grounded

You might have guessed pink, but yellow is actually my very favorite color.  And one of my favorite ways to wear it as of late is in a neon hue back to black with a pop of leopard.  And while I believe it’s perfectly acceptable to wear neon and bright colors all year round (and do!) during the colder months, it is good to ground them with darker colors making your brights feel more appropriate for the season…

Fashion Fusion

I had such a fantastic time at the Fall Fashion Fusion event at Fashion Place Mall last Friday.  From the red carpet arrival, to the VIP treatment, and all of the goodies c/o Fashion Place, I felt pretty darn special.  And not only that, but show was fun and inspiring and of course I always LOVE seeing the designs created by the students at the Fashion Institute. And with that, I thought I might end the week by sharing some photos from the evening with all of you!

FPF: All Things Yellow

Untitled #7
 
Instead of a favorite product, I wanted to share my favorite color with all of you today.  And yup, you guessed it.  Yellow is my absolute favorite color in the whole world.  So you can only imagine how thrilled I am that it is one of the colors of the season.  And since this is definitely not something that happens very often, I intend to take full advantage.  So in honor of my adoration for the color of sunshine, I thought I would share with you my current wish list of all things yellow!
 
Happy Friday!

Fashion Star Finale!

I was so excited when I learned of the inception of Fashion Star and have thoroughly enjoyed it every Tuesday night since its premiere.  The mentors are terrific, the designers are fantastic, and as a buyer myself, of course I especially love the buyers!  In fact, I was even privileged enough to spend some time with Caprice in LA when I first started working for Macy’s.  And let me tell you, she is just as pretty and fabulous in person as she is on TV!

So of course, having followed along with the designers on their journey thus far, I am so excited to see how the finale unravels tonight!  Although each person left is incredibly talented, I can’t help but find myself rooting for Kara.  She is sweet, and humble, and her sense of style rocks!!  I think she is the perfect candidate to design lines for H&M, Saks, and Macy’s.  But even though I’m rooting for Kara, Orly was my season favorite, so in honor of her, I wanted to pay tribute by wearing the AH-mazing lime blazer she debuted last week, and of course top it off with some jewelry from Nicole Richie’s House of Harlow…

Blazer:  Orly Shani for H&M

Black Silk Cami:  Express

Snake Skin Liquid Leggings:  Nodrstrom (old)

Heels:  Steve Madden

Necklace:  House of Harlow via Nordstrom

Ring: House of Harlow via Nordstrom

Tortise Watch:  Michael Kors via Nordstrom Rack

Bracelets:  Tiffany, Macy’s, Word Market, H&M

Sunnies:  Guess via TJMaxx

So while I can’t wait to see if my girl Kara is announced as the very first Fashion Star, tonight will also be a bit bittersweet as I say goodbye to one of my favorite guilty pleasures.  Guess I better start figuring out something new to do on my Tuesday nights!

Good luck Kara!!!
