Stuart Weitzman SS18 Collection

Stuart Weitzman SS18 Collection

Most of the buzz lately surrounding footwear brand Stuart Weitzman has been the SS18 ad campaign.

The campaign has made fashion history by featuring Gigi Hadid and Kate Moss, photographed together for the very first time. Shot by renowned fashion photographer Mario Testino, the images capture two iconic supermodels embodying the brand’s multi-generational appeal while showcasing the essential silhouettes of the season.

I, of course, wanted to get a first hand peek at the collection so I popped over to the Stuart Weitzman boutique at the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace and it’s even better than I imagined.

The Stuart Weitzman SS18 Collection marks Creative Director Giovanni Morelli’s second collection with the brand.  Morelli is the first person other than Mr. Weitzman himself to helm the accessories brand in its 32-year history.

For me it’s the beginning of an exciting new era for Stuart Weitzman.  Still holding true to their iconic classic style yet in an updated, refreshed and refined way.

The collection was inspired by the architectural sensibility of sensual curves and focuses on texture and details.  Curve details make a showing in everything from heels to straps, hardware and silhouettes.

Opulent satins, buttery nappas, suedes, exotic snakeskin and crystal embellishments highlight texture and flow effortlessly through the collection creating unusual pairings that are works of art- like the satin straps on the Botanical Jacquard pieces.  Two fabrics that on paper don’t work but when brought together on a shoe are pure summer magic!

Floral details are a recurring motif throughout the collection blossoming in every category from edgy metallic rose stud details on slides to pretty ladylike hand painted florals on python pointy toes and sandals.  How gorgeous are these!

Bold Vibrant Color is key for S/S 2018 and there is no shortage of that in this collection.  There is an entire wall dedicated to the season’s hottest love story: Pink and red.

..and then it was love at first sight.  My handbag loving heart skipped a beat when my eyes met this beauty, The Petite Harness.

Crafted from satin it’s a modernist take on the backpack.  It features a foldover compartment with an interior pocket. Its front satin sash is detachable. Wear it with a gown for luxe contrast or pair with trousers for a street-wear chic vibe.  The styling possibilities with this unique beauty are endless!

Spring Fashion Trends with Neiman Marcus

Spring Fashion Trends from Neiman Marcus

Last week I hosted a fabulous Influencer Fashion Happy Hour at Neiman Marcus for their CUSP event.

What happen’s when you get 25 fashion influencers in a room?  Well, we sipped on stunning rainbow martini’s from the Mariposa Cafe, snacked on delish aperitif’s and of course chatted about the most Instagram worthy trends of the season.

It all comes down to Stripes, Rainbows, Bold Color, Florals and Glitter. For Spring Summer 2018 it’s time to bring out that Happy Happy Joy Joy!

Rainbow Stripes Trend Ss18

This season reach for the brightest, boldest, most eye-catching Stripes you can find!   Re-imagined and refreshed Spring 2018 offers a fun and playful take on the classic pattern.  Stripes in both bold colors and rainbow iterations hit the mark for SS18.

Look at the World through rose, or sunny yellow or baby blue colored glasses.  Soft Sunnies, aka colored tinted lens sunglasses are EVERYTHING this season. Whether you rock aviators, shields, wayfarers or over-sized sunnies, this season it’s not so much about the silhouette as it is the shade you are viewing the world through.

Bright, bold optimistic colors in a rainbow of saturated mood boosting shades paired with Spring’s classic Floral Prints make for an eye catching combo to brighten your outlook.

Shine Bright like a Diamond.  Glitter and sparkle this season in everything from your lips to your eyes, shoes and clothing.  I am OBSESSED with these Gucci glitter sneakers and Sophia Webster for PUMA trainers.

You’re da Bomb: Why Bomber Jackets make the Perfect Spring Layering Piece

Why The Bomber Jacket is the Perfect Spring Layering Piece

Bomber jackets have been having a moment or two… or three the past few seasons but they are still on trend and on the shoulders of the most fashionable for Spring 2018.

I don’t know about you but I’m not ready to give up on my perfectly posh security blanket of layering quite yet. We are in that “in-between” season where a coat is way too hot but you still need a bit of coverage.

Bomber jackets make the perfect spring layering piece. Light and airy and oh so statement making they provide just enough coverage to achieve that layered look without feeling as though you are having a hot flash!

Stylish and versatile, bombers also serve as an accent piece to add a little edge and contrast to an evening look and they help to create a “full look” when added to casual pieces.

Whether worn over-sized and boyfriend style with arms rolled up or shrunken and cropped to give a ’90s-vibe, these guys work just as well with a slinky dress as they do with a pair of distressed jeans PLUS they are super comfortable which is always a win.

Brand-new or vintage, designer or high-street there is a bomber jacket out there for you.  Look for styles that have embroidery, sequins, patches or detailing on the back. Details that make the jacket unique and special.

Shopping Tip: How amazing is this handbag?!?!  My bloggin’ pal Patty from StilettosandSinCity made it!  She re-purposed a vintage bag by adding all this fun bling.  You can shop her INSTAGRAM stories to score more of her fabulous finds!

Spring Trendspotting at Las Vegas Premium Outlets North

Trendspotting at Las Vegas Premium Outlets North

I am a sucker for a designer outlet.

I remember the days when the only outlet shopping to be found was by driving a gazillion miles away, uphill both ways in the snow..LOL.   We would plan outlet shopping day-trips, but thankfully now you can find them located conveniently close to home.

Designer Outlets offer past season merchandise, re-issued popular styles from previous seasons using materials the designer already had and pieces that may have been labeled incorrectly or that arrived late to mainline stores and missed their retail window.  Some brands even make pieces exclusively for their outlet stores.

Hunting for a good bargain really get’s my juices flowing and I get some of my best deals at The Las Vegas Premium Outlets North.

Nestled close to Downtown Las Vegas,  The Las Vegas Premium Outlets North with over 40 acres of shopping and designer brands like Ted Baker, ETRO, Kate Spade, Dolce & Gabbana, Tory Burch, AllSaints, Marc Jacobs, John Varvatos and more! I have found some of my most treasured steals there!  A fab ETRO bag at a ridiculous 75% off 75% off, a steal of a deal on a John Varvatos suit for my hubby, and a head turning Kate Spade dress for under $100 to name a few.

Last week I hit the shops at The Las Vegas Premium Outlets North to show you how easy it is to find this season’s current trends at a steal-of-a-deal outlet price.

Let’s Shop!

DENIM

Dark or light, acid washed or selvedged, cropped, flared, skinny or straight leg however you do denim it’s a must have for Spring 2018.  Pairing denim with denim used to be a no-no but for Spring 2018 you can go head-to-toe.  This trend looks best when you vary the shades/washes of your denim to create depth. My all time favorite cuts and best fits are from AG Jeans and this store is packed literally wall-to-wall with every fit imaginable so its easy to fall in love.

GRAPHICS AND PATCHES

A bevy of graphic and patch laden designs, as seen on the streets flooded the runways this season. The trend’s not limited just to souvenir bombers and emblazoned denim styles anymore; now we see artful graphics on everything from bags to backpacks, sneakers and evening wear.  I am OBSESSED with this collection from Marc Jacobs.  For this Hippie Dippy Collection the designer collaborated with Julie Verhoeven, the multi-talented British artist who created art for Kate Moss and Primal Scream’s single, as well as for Nouvelle Vague.  Her patchwork prints including  pills, spray paint cans, rocket ships with tongues and eerily unblinking eyes adorn sweatshirts, jackets, tote bags, and box clutches throughout the collection, adding a dark kind of wonderful whimsy. The collection is almost impossible to find anywhere except at the Marc Jacobs boutique at the Premium Outlets North!

FLORAL

The old Spring perennial, floral prints are everywhere this season. Whether they’re in a patchwork effect, printed, embroidered or painted, this botanical trend is in bloom for Spring/Summer 2018.  Ted Baker always has the best uber girly Spring-tastic florals that look like they came straight out of the pages of a story book.  Right now all Dresses are an additional 30% off the already low outlet price!

SPARKLE and a bit of Whimsy

Glitter, Glitz and Holograms are IT this season and no one does the perfect blend of glitz and glam like Kate Spade.  These fusha hologram effect bags and gorgeous glittery chain strap bag are the PERFECT pop of color to brighten any look this season!  I also found these perfect for summer camel graphic bags- aren’t they adorbs!

My Mind on the Midi and the Midi on My Mind

Spring 2017 fashion has me so excited!

Who would have EVER thought you would hear me say that?  You all know I am a Fall layers kind of gal but the trends for Spring/Summer 2017 are whispering sweet nothings in my ear and they are oh so sweet.

One of my favorite trends this Spring is great for all body types, totally wearable and kind to those of us with maybe not so great legs, the Midi Dress.

This season both dresses and skirts are driven by midi silhouettes.  What does midi mean? It’s a length that lands anywhere past your knees but above the ankle.  It can be tight, flowy, A-line, printed, lace, leather, casual, evening, boho, edgy or ladylike– there is no limit to the midi.  It’s kind on hips and thighs and is a must-have piece for Spring.

Ok so you are short and the midi terrifies the bejesus out of you.  I have read articles from other fashion experts stating how shorties should beware of the midi but I totally disagree.   Midi dresses aren’t just for the tall. It’s all about the fit.

If you are petite in stature make sure that the midi you select doesn’t drown you in fabric.  Opt for a fitted style with a length that hits slightly above mid-calf – just under your knee – rather than true midi. This will help elongate your legs.

This particular midi dress has quickly become one of my fave’s because it’s so easy to wear.  It has a festival vibe but still looks polished and adds some much needed color to my wardrobe.

Hello new brunching partner!

Stylist Tip: The quickest way to up the chic factor of any dress is to ditch the self-belt (a belt that comes with a garment and is made of the same material as the garment).  Instead opt for a belt with texture or contrast to create visual interest.  The self-belt that came with this dress was a fabric sash that basically disappeared it didn’t really add any value to the look, by styling the dress with a woven belt it creates more of a waistline, breaks up the pattern and makes the entire look  feel more luxe.

What I’m Wearing: Chloe Leather T-strap Pumps | Etro Fringe-Trimmed Crossbody Bag | VIPme Blue Bohemian Chiffon Flare Midi Dress | Kate Spade Bangles
