Posh Feet Week! Nude for Fall

Zara, Por La Victorie, here

Posh Feet Week! Classic Black Pumps

Much like my wonderful friend at LuxeTips I believe if you focus positive energy on most things they will happen. I apply that knowledge  to shoe shopping a lot... lol.  Enter my favorite black pumps brought into existence by a vision board and a trip to NYC (my size, my color-- you get the picture).  Jimmy Choo masterfully combines sexiness with classic lines.  I dare you to find a sexier classic black pump than this one.  I am revisiting these this season with pencil skirts and pencil leg pants like these. Stay Posh!

Posh Feet Week! Dream Bling-Miu Miu

I never really got into the socks and sandals craze...if it doesn't look good on a fifty-year old man mowing his lawn it doesn't look good on you.  Despite what JCrew and Anthro will lead you to believe, very few of us could pull that off in a fashionable way. Enter Miu Miu.  I love how this shoe explores this trend in a fresh and most importantly blingy way.  I will be on the hunt for these.  If you get wind of any sales let me know.  Stay Posh!

Posh Feet Week! Liberty for Nike

This week I will explore my FAVORITE It's Posh Feet Week! On to business.

Strolling into UO I spied these beauties...a ridiculously posh collabo between NIKE and Liberty London (one of the most well curated stores in London). Ummm floral NIKE hi-tops, yes please.  I had been on the hunt for a similar pair earlier this year but NIKE was sold out of the style. Kismit.  So, I rarely wear sneakers but these will absolutely be the exception and in heavy rotation. Many, many great outfit options ahead.  Stay Posh!

Untitled #8

Black Friday Fantasy Shopping Outfit...
I will be in Florida for Black Friday; nowhere near anywhere that would warrant a shopping outfit quite this fabulous.  However, a girl can dream.  Happy Hunting, Stay Posh!

Posh Holiday! Fashion Inspiration for Turkey Day

Posh Holiday! Travel in Style

I am always looking for posh ways to travel without looking like a bag lady and the holiday season is no exception. Enter my current travel lust item. Although, my current fashion preferences lean toward leather and lace there is something appealing about how opposite all of that this suitcase is.  Fashion "split personality" moment.

Globe-Trotter designed this beauty specifically for JCrew.  The practicality of it lends itself more to private jets I think, but the site says the beautiful yellow exterior (which does come in black btw) will survive most anything...even a one-ton elephant sitting on it?  Stay posh!

Posh Holiday! Home Decor

Hello Poshinistas!  Firstly, pardon the hiatus.  I had a two-week travel whirlwind and unfortunately time was a luxury!

So now, Thanksgiving is here and thinking now what???!!! Well, the holiday bonanza begins.  My thoughts are quickly turning to Holiday Decorating. Traditionally, our family has the same Thanksgiving meal every year with some variations on the starring vegetable or dessert.  I like it that way.

The primary area for creativity is the place setting.  I am not big on traditional decorations but love modern interpretations on classic ideas.  Here are a few images from mydesigndump blog that I found inspiring and definitely would make any holiday feast infinitely more fabulous. Stay Posh!

Possessed! Zara Shopper

Like many of you, I'm always on the hunt for a chic bag to carry my computer and other work essentials to and fro.  Enter the Zara shopper. It is perfection.  It features a removable bag that can be used to carry small essentials like chargers, extra cords and jump drives.  Or makeup odds and ends...or extra carry on items when traveling. So I guess you get it by now, it is pretty versatile.  It also comes in black. Stay Posh!

Rich cognac color ...for a classic look

Posh Travel! London

In honor of my trip to see my grandmother this weekend, I am posting on another recent trip...London!  I have been to London several times BUT never when the sun was shining. Let me say that it is beautiful.  While there, I spent some time on the famed Portobello Road which was a vintage (well some of it anyway) lovers paradise.  Also, really great for street fashion but I was too shy to take picts so you'll have to enjoy these instead. Stay Posh!

Yes that one
Haute hats
Sort of like Wedgewood

Is it London w/out top hats and Union Jack

Posh Home! Closet Organization

Lonny Magazine is the cool cousin of the late great Domino magazine.  Domino was brilliant at making home design simple and easy.  Basically, Lonny magazine picks up where Domino left off.  Lonny is primarily an online zine but you can purchase printed copies.  The coolest evolution with Lonny is that you can click on an item you like and be taken directly to the product's site to buy! made easy.  I like it.  The latest issue has a great article on managing your wardrobe. Purge, purge, purge poshinistas. Stay Posh!

Posh Celeb! Solange Knowles

The Posh Celeb this week is Solange Knowles. Solange is the rare exception...I mean how do you out-style your Mega Diva sister who has access to the world's most famous designer creations (difficult just ask Ashley Simpson).  But Solange does it with a bit of originality, a dose creativity and most importantly a sprinkle of rebellion.  I especially love that she has given up being a slave to the "weave." No disrespect, but the natural is my preference.  Here are a few of my favorite looks. Stay Posh!

Posh Beauty! NARS Night Series

Admittedly, I am a NARS addict.  As explained to my fellow poshinista pictured below sure it's a bit pricier than some other prestige brands...but it is well worth.  I always get what's promised, modern glamour. The colors are true and rich (what you see is what you get), the quality is phenomenal (I mean triple milled!) and the matte black packaging is very posh.  What more can you ask for?

Here is my beauty post on the NARS Night Series eye palette which I grabbed during FNO. For a smokey navy eye I paired Night Rider, Night Clubbin, Night Reemer and Rajistan. Lips are my secret NARS nude combo :) vs. the Train Bleu. I also tried faux lashes for the first time as this look really called for it.  I really like the total look, very 80s Rock-n-Roll glam. Stay Posh!

Posh Possessions! Hunter Boots

So I finally gave in.  The trend of Hunter Boots now has all of the cache of UGGs...virtually none.   The purchase was likely inspired by my recent trip to London.  However, I do always say you can't mess with a classic and that's what Hunter Boots are...simply classic.  I would extol the virtues of the Hunter wellie but I am sure you poshinistas could cite them in your sleep.  After getting over myself I have to admit they are pretty fabulous wellies and will definitely make the rain/sleet very fashionable. Stay Posh!

Posh Vintage! Vegas Style

So recently, I scored a beautiful silk vintage shirt (posted here) it was the perfect compliment to a Zara tuxedo blazer I found last year. I wore this to a media dinner at our annual conference in Vegas.   I loved this outfit so I had to document! It felt very Old Vegas circa Sinatra and Sammy D. (or even better!). Think more class less crass. We hit the strip later for a bit of fun and I think I had on more clothes than most that night, BUT you gotta love Vegas. Stay Posh!

A little dark but you get the idea

Posh Style! Inspired By Chanel

So here it is, the outfit inspired by my Chanel Peridot nail polish.  It was pretty haute if I do say so myself. Leather jeans with a beautiful designer sequin jacket scored at a discount retailer. The outfit was perfect for the Jay and Ye concert...80s glam with a bit of edge. To quote Kanye, I had to call the paparazzi on myself, :) kidding.  Stay Posh!

Posh Nails! Chanel Peridot

Inspired by Chanel nail color again.  So you may remember my post on Atlanta Fashion Week and our trip to Saks for the Chanel Nail Bar. I fell in love with Peridot but opted to buy Black Pearl instead.  Well, I scored an amazing gold jacket that I wore to the Jay Z concert.  I just knew this was the right nail polish to rock with it. Check out the outfit it inspired, tomorrow.  Stay Posh!
