The Mad Hat

Spring 2008 runways have shown a lot of women's hats. Does this mean
we're going back to 'can't get out of the house without a hat' times?
Could the hat be as essential as a handbag these days? Well I think the
answer is no but a hat is definite a more fashionable accessory, now,
complementing any outfit. Don't think of conservative "royal court"
styles and get rid of the sporty caps.

Jewelry Trend: Watch Necklaces

Both practical and chic, watch necklaces are the latest scoop in fashion accessories. What a modish way to always keep track of time! Left: Marc by Marc Jacobs Watch Charm Necklace, $150.00, available at ELuxury.


Watch Charm Necklace

Functionality and innovative design describe the latest trend in fashion accessories/jewelry: watch necklaces. From ‘old grandpa's pocket watch' vintage styles to witty shapes your timepiece will sit stylishly around your neck.

Chic Friday Outfit

Most companies have a casual friday dress code, but what would you say about a chic friday code? You could choose your favorite trends of the season and create your own fashionable smart look. My favorite styles: the 3/4 quarter sleeve jacket worn with cuff bracelets, the pencil skirt, ankle boots, oversized structured handbag, and the yellow top (i'm in love with this one from Phillip Lim).

Style on a budget: Recreating a Marc Jacobs look

Marc Jacobs is one of my favorite designers, not necessarily for his designs, which aren’t that brilliant, but for the impeccable styling of his shows and for the straightforward American spirit he sends forth.

Marc is a great stylist and I always find out new ways to wear basic wardrobe pieces or new color combinations. His Fall 2007 collection has a retro vibe, straight lines reminding of twenties Art Deco fashion and of the late eighties high society. Or so it seems to me.

I especially like this outfit because of that spicy red leather pleated skirt. I looked for a similar one but all I could come with was a straight red leather skirt I found on eBay.
