Leg up Leggings!!!!

Here we go…….the MUST HAVE BOTTOMS of the season!

So first things first ladies,  Leggings are not true pants, more a hosiery/pant combination…I say this again, a hosiery/pant combination! So let us be sure that we are wearing these comfy bottoms with tops and dresses that cover our rumps and tumms (tummies for those not accustomed to my made up fashion vocabulary!). I will show some celebrity looks that I feel highlight the figure yet allow us to keep a stylish and comfy look!

Cheers!

Rhianna shows us how to dress up these faux leather leggings with a feather embellished blazer. This was a very popular look she wore a few years back but the theory stays true!

7. Actress/dancer Jenna Dewan Tatum, married to Channing Tatum, matched her tight leggings with a short metallic dress. Nice!

Jenna Dewan Tatum shows how this “half-tight” variation of leggings looks great with a mini dress in the winter!

Kim Kardashian fab as always in her basic black legging, over the knee boots and a blazer paired with a comfy top.

Sienna Miller in a fun poncho and jeggings!

Take these looks and make them your own! Enjoy leggings in a tasteful, sophisticated yet darn comfy way!!!!

I know I will….

Cheers

 

 

 

Mucho Poncho!!!

The season is here for Ponchos, Ruanas and Capes!!! I love the cozy feel of an over-sized wooley sheet on me when I am eating hearty food, it truly conceals! Lol! But honestly the over-sized look with skinny jeans and boots is all the rage and rightly so! Turn a casual t-shirt and jeans into an elegant dinner ensemble or an equestrian country chic outfit! Here are my faves so far…truly too many  hits to chose from! Cheers!

'Double Plaid' Reversible Ruana

Accessory street $68

'Danijo' Structured Poncho

Theory $555

Ode to L’Wren Scott

Category : Uncategorized · No Comments · by Mar 26th, 2014

The fashion industry recently lost one of their own on March 17th, 2014. L’Wren Scott was a fashion icon, model, stylist, designer and on again off again girlfriend to rock-star Mick Jagger. Beautiful at her 6’3 frame L’Wren’s designs were feminine, intricate and timeless. Rest in peace L’Wren, you will be missed.
