A Spring Fling

There is something so light-hearted about springtime.  I think it is all the soft colors, new growth and sunshine.  It inspires a bit of whimsy in me.  I know some people go into spring-cleaning mode.  I get the bug to redecorate.  I had an “ooooh…look what’s in the box,” moment when I opened up Circa Living’s latest designs.  I found myself looking around the house for what I could fling, or at least tuck away, so I could freshen up the place, and ring-in the spring with these great new home accessories.

Avenue Spring/Summer Fashion Week – Molichino

I’m blending 2 outfits from Molichino Avenue Spring/Summer Fashion Week collection, because I simply couldn’t resist.  The pieces are sold as full outfits, so you are guaranteed to be styling with some great mix and match pieces you can wear together or blend with other items in your inventory.  They coordinate so well, you’ll want to grab several of the outfits to break apart.  But hurry…Avenue’s Spring/Summer Fashion Week is only through end of day Saturday, April 6th.

I also hit The Event – Hollywood, where each store has a free SWAG bag from the designer.  Chop Zuey’s Paparazzi jewelry was perfect with this ensemble, and yes…the whole sparkly ruby, diamond and citrine set was FREE. You’ll also want to check out Chop Zuey’s stunning jewelry sets designed especially for this posh event.

Off Kilter

My life has gotten a little off-kilter somehow, and my tendency now is to look for what I can change.  When it gets like this, I’m not looking for a small correction either, it means something drastic is about to happen..something drastic I am going to do…to force it to happen, because there is that part inside me that demands its voice and it says “Enough is enough.” I know, that sounds rather extremist, but it has never failed me before.

Rock This TownIn the past when things have really turned around have been those moments of sudden awareness and even anger when I took a stand and said “Stop…I am the maker of my destiny, and this is what we are doing now,” and I take my power back.  It is funny how it often takes the pain building up to the breaking point before one is reminded that we have that power.  Until then we go along, go along, because it is easier to float with the tide.

Rock This Town Close

When we let life sweep us this way and that, we ought not to be surprised to wake up and find we are in some strange and uncomfortable destination, and yet we usually are.  We wonder how things could possibly have gotten to this point.  It’s time to turn the rudder, rock the boat, drive a stake in the ground and mark the day.  Today is the day for reckoning, and change is on the horizon.

You look wonderful tonight

It’s late in the evening, she’s wondering what clothes to wear. She puts on her makeup, and brushes her long dark hair.  And then she asks me; “Do I look alright?” And I say; “Yes, you look wonderful tonight.” lyrics by Eric Clapton.

It was while dancing in Molichino’s Liri dress that I came to fully appreciate the artistry of it.  It caresses the body much the way real silk does, with beautiful draping that clings gently to belly and hips, teasing at the shape beneath it with each sashay. This design debuts at Fashion For Life, and comes in an exclusive shade of lavender for the event.

Molichino Kiri Dress Cream

The soft elegance of Liri lends itself to myriad styling options.  I chose to keep things very feminine, playing with soft green and peach accents from HANDverk, EMO-tions, Finesmith, and Redgrave, finishing with the casual updo, Semiramis, from EMO-tions featured at Fashion For Life.  You have a few more hours today to give to a great cause and gather up some EMO-tions hair specials, only 99L each at Fashion For Life.

Out on the town

As the U.S. springs forward, I thought I’d step out on the town dressed for windy pre-spring weather for some distraction-free me time.  Just me today, out and about, with no one to chase through the toy department or extract from underneath the clothing racks.  No one pestering about “are we done yet?” or nudging me for ice cream.  As much as I love them, sometimes I appreciate them even more after a little me time.

Today is about a little power shopping with a focus on finding a great statement accessory.  In this case, my impact item is a snazzy scarf from Shine, pulling together the wines, blacks, and purples in my outfit so harmoniously. March may bluster, but I’m cruising, feeling relaxed and unhurried.

Geometrics

Shine’s spring collection is out, and one of their many items includes this off-the-shoulder dress harkening back to the seventies, covered in a myriad of circles within circles. This flirty tunic dress was the perfect pairing with BSD’s Oprahouse heels, that look like the roof of the Sydney Opra house in Australia, in black with a purple heel and base. EMO-tions high braided Siiri poneytail furthers my girly seventies look

Shine Purple Dress1

From circles to triangles.  Handverk’s cute Tetrahedron clutch is available currently at L’assessoires in colors to match all your outfits, and EMO-tions has expanded their offerings to now include jewelry. I’m wearing their new Vari set in silver and black.

Shine Purple Dress 2

I must be rockin the geometrics, because it looks like someone wants a date. How long do you think I should play coy?

Nude Pics at Pinewood Estate

After perving the pics for a couple of weeks now, I finally made a visit over to Pinewood to check out the art and decor first hand, dressed all artsy in the new Haley tunic in nude from Molichino, exclusively at FaMESHed during the month of February.  There is something so soft and feminine to me about nude colored clothes, although Haley comes in 8 color varieties.  I wore Haley with leggings and an under-corset, but you might imagine just how uber sexy it could be, with its plunging neckline and short-length, worn all on its own, almost like a short, loosely-wrapped kimono.

Also, a big thank you to Editorial Clarity for opening his gorgeous home to the public for pics and exploration.  If you are an art lover or interior design enthusiast, you’ll definitely want to give Pinwood a visit.
