Birds

I've recently been drawn to embroidery on both dresses and flirty little tops. I love the feminine touch, added embellishments, etc. It's such a nice break from my basic black & white wardrobe. We'll see if this one sticks around for fall, but for now, birds of a feather flock together, right? This illustration was inspired by a dress a few years back, but it came to mind when I found this dress the other day. Hello, it's perfect for a summer wedding, a bridesmaid's luncheon or a baby shower (throw on some cute flat sandals). So out of character for me, but I'm completely obsessed with it.

What to Wear... This Fall

While I feel like we just got into the heat of summer, fall is just around the corner (yay!). I find it much easier to get dressed in the fall when you can throw on a sweater, jeans, and your favorite boots and call it a day. While we're still a few months out, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the perfect opportunity to start your fall shopping now! So what are we looking for in terms of fall trends? Bell sleeves are still going to be here. Long duster cardigans are becoming a major go-to for me (layered over a basic white tee, done and done). Cool details like lace-up sleeves and tasteful cut-outs are the perfect way to add some interest to an otherwise basic sweater. Off the shoulder is still going to be around, though I have to admit, I'm growing weary of the trend. Oh, but the sweater/sweatshirt she's wearing below is $25. You might need this one. It's a great weekend wear option (linked below). I've narrowed it down to a handful of sweaters you have to see (for non-Nordstrom card holders, start loading up your cart now so you can hit "checkout"  when the sale opens to the public Saturday). Grab these items quick before they sell out!

If there's one thing I spend money on, it's accessories. Everything from 
watches, sunglasses, bags, etc. etc... that's where my money goes. My wardrobe is pretty basic (black, white and grey is my color palette), and I mix it up with fun accessories (mostly in the same colors). I never leave home without a good pair of shades, so Quay has become my new best friend. (Consider this an unsponsored post; I'm just a huge advocate for the brand). They are highly durable, affordable, and on-trend. With the attainable price point, you can go for something on the trendy side without breaking the bank. My summer go-to has been the mirrored aviators. While I have an extensive collection of Ray-Bans in the same shape, the Quay version is lighter on my face which makes for better long-term wear. 
While I opted for the silver, this shape is available in multiple colors. Shop

There are some weeks where Friday can't come soon enough and this was one of those weeks! Looking forward to a weekend of resting up, hopefully soaking in some sun, and preparing for a busy week next week!

If you follow me on instagram, you saw this one come to life last week. I'm calling her "Rouge" and she may or may not make it into the spring collection. Stay tuned!

With spring shower invitations flowing in, the conundrum is what do I wear?? I love a dressy romper for a cocktail occasion instead of a dress. Pair it with the sandal of the season and a pop of color with these earrings and you'll be the belle of the ball.

Giuliana Rancic x Brittany Fuson 2017

It's that time again.... time to reveal the latest collaboration with Giuliana Rancic! For this collection, we looked to California for inspiration. From the hiking through the Hollywood Hills to getting dressed to the nines with your glam squad, there's a design for everybody. When you think of California, one of the first things you think of is most likely Rodeo Drive. We had to come up with a design that captured that essence of shopping on Rodeo with your bestie (and admiring all the fancy cars as you pass). 
Getting to the true roots of Giuliana's lifestyle, we had to include a design that
also paid homage to how the two of us connected. A while back, I illustrated her 
and her glam squad. I took a shot in the dark and mailed the illustration (with a copy
for each member of her glam squad) to E! News with her name on it. Flash forward
a few months later, I saw it in the background of an E! News scene in her dressing
room. I knew she had received the prints, and a few months after that, the email
came from a PR company that was putting together an event for her new HSN 
denim line launch. They wanted me to be in LA within the following two weeks to live illustrate during the event, and the rest is history! So, this is really how it all began. 
One of my favorites from this collection is the outdoorsy girls taking a hike with the beloved pooch. Whether it's through the Hollywood Hills, along the coast of Malibu, or through your local park, get outside! 

And of course, two besties riding along the Santa Monica pier, which is summer goals if I've ever envisioned it. 

All of these designs are available exclusively on HSN and are on a short-sleeve
shirt that is a longer fit (more of a tunic length). Here are a few iPhone shots of me in them so you can get an idea of the fit.

Get them quick before they sell out (click here)! Each collection is printed in small quantities, so once they sell out, they're gone forever. For those asking about the travel series we did in December, the shirts are sold out, but the scarf and sweatshirts are still available in limited sizes. Grab one while you can! The sweatshirt is absolutely the softest material ever - you'll be living and sleeping in it.

It's that time, you can safely pull out the white jeans. Pair them with a pair of sneakers by day and a pair of over the knee boots by night. A chic hat completes the look no matter what the occasion.

I recently purchased this jacket from Anthropologie and have pretty much lived in it since. It's the coziest sweatshirt feeling jacket that you will not want to take off. I wish I could add this semi-ridiculous pink booties to complete the look, but I'm not sure they're quite me.

Oscars 2017

If you didn't watch the Oscars last night, please tell me you have at least heard about the dramatic ending. Such an epic fail. 
But let's focus on the red carpet...I loved how Voila Davis and Ginnifer Goodwin both stepped out in bold red. Brie Larson's bold black velvet gown was breathtaking and seems to  be an emerging trend for fall (velvet - Busy Phillips also wore the trend). I love the unexpected ruffle and interested hemline. I was a big fan of this one. Janelle Monae is never one to fly under the radar and killed it in this over the top detailed black and white gown. I might have preferred it without the side panels, but it's the kind of look we've come to expect from her and I look forward to seeing what she's wearing. A true statement maker. 
White was a huge trend last night. From Priyanka Chopra in this structured
column gown from Ralph & Russo to Naomie Harris (who sadly I had never heard of) but my goodness, she is absolutely stunning. I love the simple sequins in such an interesting cut. Chrissy Teigen is also one who never disappoints and
looked oh-so-pretty in this white goddess gown. One of my favorite white gowns 
was worn by Darby Stanchfield (Abby for my Scandal watchers). Such a different dress that was truly breathtaking. 
Then there were the girls in gold. Winner Emma Stone looked age-appropriate
in this sleek flapper-inspired gown that was pretty, but it didn't make me swoon. 
Nicole Kidman also looked understated and like the true movie star she is, like
meh, this is my 15th Oscars, I'm going to be comfortable. She looks effortless as
per usual, it's really not fair. Jessica Biel also looked completed stunning in this
detailed gold, sequined gown with a bold accessory. I loved it. But did you see
her after party dress? I can't decide which one I love more. 
My two favorites were like breaths of fresh air when they appeared. First, 
my girl, Giuliana Rancic stunned in this periwinkle gown with an added cape. 
Nobody else on the carpet had on a similar color so it stood out in the best way. 
Truly truly stunning. (Speaking of fresh colors, Demi Lovato showed up to the 
after-parties in this beautiful lavender gown that makes my heart skip a beat. 
So pretty).
And then there was the princess of the night, Hailee Steinfeld (also in 
Ralph & Russo). The back was just as interesting as the front, it had so many
interested details, and the airiness of it was just etherial. I want to borrow this one and just twirl and prance around a castle. It's true princess perfection. Her outfit change was also well worth it donning another Ralph & Russo gown, this one a more sleek column gown with a dramatic train.

Spring, apparently, has arrived two months early! While I'm not complaining, I would give anything for one more good snow. If not, let's go ahead and move on to the 70 degree weather. These dreary days of 50s and 60s are killing me. Anyone with me? So one of the biggest questions I've been debating is do I get the bag everyone is raving about right now or not? It's not super expensive, but 
completely impractical for this cross body loyal. Fashion over function,  or wait until there's a hybrid of the two? I die for the shape of this bag, though. It's really that good.

Neon Lilac

When the latest J.Crew catalogue arrived in the mail the other day, this top caught my attention. Bell sleeves are proving to have  true staying power. They were a huge trend for fall, but they're not going anywhere. It's something to invest in now... you won't regret it later.

When bloggers descend upon New York for Fashion Week, my eyes are glued to instagram for the street style shots. Rachel Parcell and Emily Jackson stepped out in coordinating long coats with jeans and made a true statement. I couldn't wait to put pen to paper to bring their looks to live in the BFP voice.
