Posh Holiday! Holiday Wish List

I can't believe there are less than two weeks until Christmas!  I've lost track of time and honestly don't know where it all goes.  Here is a cool holiday wish list that I found somewhere (sorry owner).  It struck me because I would take pretty much every single thing pictured.  Jury is still out on that ball cap. Stay Posh!

Posh Update! Miss Posh Life in London

Halllo! (catch that?)

Sorry for the absence but it is with good reason.  I am working through as cross continental move to the UK.  That's correct, Miss Posh Life will now report from London.  I have to say I'm pretty excited about this.  It should be a source of style inspiration.  Women get it here! Lots of individuality.

Please excuse the inconsistent posts as I get settled.  I hope to get things back on track in the new year!  Stay Posh!

Posh Style Alert! The Camel Coat

I love coat season!!!!  There are so many interesting things happening with coats right now.  Today's post is focused on a versatile favorite.  The camel coat.

I've focused on three ladies interpreting the classic style in their own unique way. Which is your favorite...I'm going with Karen from WDUGT.  Stay Posh!

Posh Style Alert! Vans Shoes

Following the return of the sporty chic trend... Vans are back!  Comfortable and cool, yes please.  I've also seen several designer riffs on the originals. BUT those are essentially the same thing and infinitely more expensive.  I don't know I'm kind of like a purist...would you wear fake Chuck Taylors...I think not.

Check out these three cool interpretations on a classic.  Stay Posh!

Yes I'm obsessed with this outfit
repeat repeat repeat

If classic doesn't tickle your fancy
try these...

Super casual w/laces

Posh Style! Look of the Day

Geometric and window pane prints are big now.  Today, I am featuring Chriselle Lim (Chriselle Factor) looking stunning in a ASOS number.

Not an easy one to pull off but if you have the figure by all means please go for it!  She is a native of Cali so obvs for us East Coast ladies some tights and a light sweater would be in order to make this work for Fall.  Stay posh!!!

Posh Style! Style Crush Alert..Solange. Again.

This chic...

Solange. It's a somewhat later summer photo but I could not resist when I saw it.  It's too good.  But in my defense it's a look that could easily transition for cold weather...add black boyfriend cardi and boots. Voila...Stay Posh!

just add boots + sweater (transitional style!)

Posh Style! Oversized Coats

Oversized coats...love them!  So very Olson Twins (The Row)...swaddled in layers of luxe.  An oversized coat (in addition to being warm and allowing room for extra layers) can add proportional interest.  If you go big on top remember to pare down the bottom.  Note the oversized clutch...it's pretty clutch. Stay Posh!

perfectly pumpkin

Monday Motivation! Appreciation

Appreciate the small things...Stay Posh!

Posh Beauty! Easy Fall Make Up Essentials

Fall is here!  With fall fashion also comes fall makeup essentials.

Easy face:
  • Great skin (wash, moisturize, sunscreen--EAT YOUR VEGGIES). 
  • Deep lip colors (try deep red or brown, violet or vampish)
  • Touch of neutral blush (NARs NARs NARs)
  • and finish with mascara (Lancome Definicils or Dior Show or Loreal as a Lancome dupe)

Now on to the visuals.  For a touch of drama try the second look--burgundy aka oxblood are big for Fall.  But if this level of drama scares you consider shades of purple.  Stay Posh!

Flawless skin+ deep neutral lip 
(For lips try deep browns, reds, purples)

Burgundy Lip + Eye + nail
(for drama.. certainly not for the meek)

Posh Obsession! Frends Headphones

So I thought pretty much everyone knew/heard about these until I mentioned them in passing to a co-worker and she had not.  Posh indulgences for those of us that are musically inclined...Frends Headphones. Gorgeous headphones that are essentially the fashionista's version of beats.  Purposeful jewelry for the ears.  Great for travel to block out noisy seat mates; or for work and blocking noisy co-workers; or at home for blocking out noisy neighbors.  Multi-purpose.  Featured below are the pair that I am contemplating...the Layla. Described as:

Taylor's demure little sister. All the style, all the sound, a little less moxie. Pristine in a pretty shade of rose gold and white lambskin leather. 

1. Jewelry inspired design
2. Genuine leather & hand crafted metal
3. Soft touch fabric cord
4. Three button mic with volume, music + phone control
5. Memory foam ear cushions
6. Premium 30mm driver
7. Zippered carrying case

So dope
Retail $150

jewelry for the ears

Posh Obsessions! White Coats "Scandal" Style

This coat was introduced to me during the "Scandal" premiere last night.  Kerry does a lot of white...in celebration of the "white knight" thematic that runs throughout the series.  But this one gave me pause.  In fact, I nearly passed out.

The coat is Burberry Prorsum and unfortunately it is no longer available online.  It was from this year's spring collection.  Boo. Hiss.

However, it will remain my aspirational guide for a flawless white coat.  At once impractical and irresistible.  Officially, slayed (or slain if we want to get grammatical).  Stay Posh!


Look back at it...

Posh Style! Style Crush Alert: A Simple Suit

Well it's B. again...sigh. I wish my beach house retirement plan allowed for relentless shopping.

 It does not....

So I will live through others...especially Atlantic-Pacific.



Take notes on how to wear a simple suit--
and amp it up for more of a statement.

Elegant.  Stay Posh!
