Wanted Wednesday

Ok, so firstly EPIC FAIL!
Yes this weeks Wanted Wednesday is in fact being posted on Thursday. Sorry about that. Super busy bee this week…

Finally though, here we go.
This weeks Wanted Wednesday is this smokin’ pair of Helmut Lang leather pants.

Because honestly – who out there wouldn’t want these flattering, cropped, tight fitting, HOT pants that cost only a weeks rent??? No really – who??

Hope to see you in your leather.

Florals and corals

Summertime should not preclude you from wearing black.
Au contraire – you just need to make it feel more summery with some florals, or a splash of colour!

My favourite colour this season has to be anything in the coral family. I am finding myself drawn to anything coral spotted on the rack.
So pretty and feminine.

So here is my version of a summertime “black” outfit.

Love this Alex Perry top with a beautiful big floral pattern, an interesting vest-like shape at the top and flattering pleats.

Short Shorts

Forget the LBD (ok jokes) – but, what about the LITTLE BLACK SHORTS?

I love them in spring, I love them in summer.
I love them casual, i love them dressy.
I love them on The Hart Of Dixie and the resulting disruption they cause to the town of Bluebell.

This past Sunday, I channeled my inner Zoe Hart and took my favourite little black shorts out to Brooklyn.
Teamed up with a summery colour blocked tank – and my new Manolo Blahniks (their first excursion!!)

Pumps – Manolo Blahnik Kandita-Mod Sandal

While some perceive them to be casual, I disagree and believe you can make the little black short a dressy statement.

Bring out the legs for summer.

Black & Gold

While black and gold may be a classic combination, throw in shiny gold pants and what you have is anything but classic.
I love these statement gold Zara pants. They can be super dressy, or made more daytime dependant on what you pair them with.

DSC_0352Absolutely in love with this spin on a classic black shirt – sheer tails!! So much fun.

The outfit was made complete with some black & gold accessories.
Now don’t also forget the springtime pop of nail colour – here I opted for California Coral by Essie.

Little BLUE Jacket

I have been patiently (well mostly) waiting for the weather to be warm enough for me to rip the price tag off with glee and skip outside!!
Bewitched by this colour.
Infatuated with my new little blue jacket.

Casual lunch, shopping, work…it is just so versatile and fun.

Blue stockings - CRAZY!

Coloured fishnets don’t have to be goth or fancy dress – similar here.
Ralph Lauren ankle boots to complete the black & blue outfit.

Blue eye make up

Make up to finish the look.

Add a pop of colour to your make up also!
MAC Eye Shadow Frost (Deep Truth), Chanel Lip Gloss (Levres Scintillantes Glossimer (#02 Brilliance), Chanel Nail Colour in #561 Suspicious & #455 Lotus Rouge.

Michael Kors – Large Hamilton Tote

Don’t stop at the jacket – add some blue to the eye’s too!
Here’s to being blue (well clothing-wise that is!!)

Tea Party at The Plaza

You had me at high-tea, but make it at The Plaza with some lovely ladies and I am there in a heartbeat.

The place is luscious. From the flowers that greet you just past the main entrance, to the decadent decor beyond.
LOVE.

Who can forget the Carrie and Big conversation outside his engagement party “Your girl is lovely, Hubbel”, to the real life wedding of celebrities such as Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones.
There are many reason why even the “worst” room (broom closet) costs half a monthly mortgage repayment and the wait-list for a Saturday summer wedding is longer than fifth avenue!

A delightful afternoon spent in opulent New York fashion…
