Pretty Little Addiction

Posted in Bags with tags , , , , on July 29, 2010 by BEA'sBrideGuide

Tuesday night you will find me glued to ABC Family. I’m one of the thousands of adults inappropriately watching a show geared towards high schoolers. My most obvious Pretty Little Liar’s observation – when did high school guys get so hot? (Followed by why on earth didn’t I make out with one of my teachers…oh wait when did high school teachers get so hot?). Before long though you realize that Pretty Little Liar’s has more than just hot men wandering about, it has some hot fashion. Actress Lucy Hale’s character Aria’s style tends to impress me the most. Her love of low slung bags that most would only wear as a crossbody motivated me to tell anyone who would listen to me that this was the it style for fall. Let’s hope me and Aria are right!

The low slung bag feels a little 80s-ish but every other trend has come back from the 80s so why not?!

Spring Ahead

Posted in Bags, Fall Trends, Shoes on May 23, 2010 by BEA'sBrideGuide

I spent all winter lamenting my dry hair, unfashionable puffer jacket, and battles with my ice scraper.  Yesterday during what can only be describe as a typical monsoon I donned caramel colored boots, my favorite stretch jeans, and an oversized grandpa cardigan complete with my beloved chain necklace. More than one person commented on the fact that I looked “cozy”. My boss informed me my rain jacket is typically used by people skiing. So what I like to be warm I guess.  As I sit on my porch enjoying a gorgeous sunny afternoon my hair is slowly curling thanks to the humidity. I have to be honest.  I miss fall.

I can’t wait for 65 and sunny with 0% humidity.  I’ll be wearing the likes of these…

Leopard print is one of my favorite trends for this season (although I’m warming up to zebra as well). A leopard clutch is the perfect way to follow the trend if you aren’t ready for a full on leopard print dress. This New York & Company clutch reminds me of the new Jimmy Choo for H&M leopard clutch except you don’t have to wait to have it!

Leopard isn’t the only animal print that reigns supreme this season.  Snake skin is popping up in some unexpected places.  Here are some of my favorite ways to own this trend on a budget.

I almost bought these Rachel Rachel Roy shoes at Macy’s on Saturday but wasn’t quite ready to hand over my debit card. After a few days of thinking about it I’m definitely planning a lunch break getaway to the mall.

Oh, Olivia…..

The City would be a much less interesting place without social turned frenemy Olivia Palermo.  She is a pro at insulting you while complimenting you and storming out of what should be a professional setting. What she may lack in niceness she makes up in volumes with her personal style. And who knows maybe this is all part of her attempt at becoming an actress. After all no one tunes in to watch the nice girl.

I have a feeling this may be the first of many posts.

A favorite Olivia look and the look for less:
