Posh Style! Nailed it

I'm always seeking ways to add a touch of glam to every day. I love an occasional gold nail to break up the monotony of appropriate neutrals.  I'm still working through my Butter London obsession and think it is properly under control.  That is until next season's colors come out!

Here is my most recent endeavor a goldy luxe look compliments of Butter London's West End Wonderland nailed it.... no pun intended. Stay Posh!

Working it!

Posh Possessions! Loeffler Randall

My latest pair of snakeskin pumps.  I wanted something a little sexy (I mean it is snakeskin!) but long on practicality. Enter Loeffler Randall. Here's a great excerpt on the brand from their website...

Loeffler Randall was born out of designer Jessie Randall's quest to find the shoes that she wanted to wear but could not find – (I understand that dilemma)-shoes that possessed an understated elegance, were well-made, and undeniably feminine. With this distinct point of view, Loeffler Randall launched in the fall of 2005. Styles like the Matilde flat boot quickly became staples among fashion editors and celebrities alike, and remain at the heart of Loeffler Randall’s footwear offering. Loeffler Randall’s mix of refined sophistication and downtown cool ...XxOo this!

The best part of the process was the delivery.  Really a surprise! It was like opening a lovely unexpected gift. This is what they looked like the day they arrived.  So Posh!

Stay Posh!

Posh Home! Tableware from West Elm

West Elm is one of my favorite purveyors of modern home comforts.  So it was a first stop on my journey to find new tableware.  After years of loving use my favorite plates finally succumbed to chips.  Enter my new tableware. Gold, earthy, modern--yes please!  Absolutely love them.  They were actually a hold out from the David Stark for West Elm holiday collection (read sale) but love their everyday poshness.  However, don't fret there are plenty of other great options on their site.

Posh Design Tip: Try mixing and matching for a bit of interest.  The photos show the complete set which plays with pattern.  I also bought solid brown salad plates that I will use to break up the symmetry and change up the look.  I love options.  Stay Posh!

Posh Weekend! Moods + Moments

Another posh weekend! This lack of humidity is really spoiling me. So I spent the weekend showing the original Poshinista (aka Mom) around the city.   Lots of eating, a little sipping and a lot of fashion. Stay Posh!

Posh Style! Sexy Masculine

I don't even know if that title makes sense, but obsessed with this whole look via... Contrary to a somewhat "overly popular" belief it is possible to be sexy AND leave something to the imagination. Leelee kills with the always hot classic white blouse, modest midi and masculine brogues. Oh and the red lip to punctuate it all. Flawless.  Stay Posh!

Posh Style! Vince

I'm currently in the process of building a timeless wardrobe. A must for us women of a certain age.  I love that phrase! Anyhoo...the "disposable clothing" trend fueled by posh brands like Target and HM is fun but not the fastest route for making this happen.  Is it better to spend $25 a piece on five shirts that will give you about five wears within a year OR $125 on one that you will have for years? I'd vote for the latter. I'm just sorry it took me this long to figure it out.

Enter my current obsession, Vince.  Think of it as a grown up Gap exuding the laid back California cool of L.A.  Co-founded by Christopher LaPolice and Rea Laccone in 2001, L.A. label Vince is the name to know for cool casual wearable clothes. Vince offers luxe staples with a contemporary twist on relaxed dressing. The labels cashmere sweaters, cotton and silk separates have made it the off-duty brand of choice for celebrities such as Hallie Berry, Kate Hudson and Jennifer Aniston.  Find it at net-a-porter or here or if you are really lucky TJ's. Stay Posh!
