Posh Obsessions! Wedge Sandels

Looking for the perfect summer sandal...consider a wedge. With a good wedge sandal you get the benefit of height & comfort which is why they are one of my "go to" summer sandal styles.  Look for fun colors, unique features or textures.

Here are a few cool options from piperlime.

Posh Style! The Midi

Cropped tops are back...I would say ehhh proceed with caution. I do have to say I like the updated version of the look juxtaposed against something modest.  Balance. The key is always balance.  Stay Posh!

Ri-ri (a little extra but I like it)

Posh Style Ideas! 5.0 Jumpsuits

Sorry Solange...not your best pict but I do love what you are doing here. This jumpsuit is everything...which brings me to my point.

The unitard, the onsie and certain rompers...all distant and sometimes evil cousins of the decidedly posh jumpsuit.  There are a variety of options to choose from but the best advice when choosing a jumpsuit is pay attention to proportions. And then when you wear it...easy on the water. Geesh what a pain.  But back to the good stuff.

It's a fun all inclusive look.  It can create long lines.  Best to pair it with a heel unless you are vertically gifted, great jewelry is also important as well as simple hair.  Stay Posh!

Posh Style Ideas! 4.0 Volume

Fabric, fabric everywhere.  This look is not for the weak of heart.  It takes a lot of confidence to pile on the layers.  Albeit looking like you are trying to conceal one too many times at the buffet, or those abs that didn't come as quickly as you wished (what one week of the Insanity workout is not enough--hrmpff).  But the result is decidedly worth it. chic, alluring and fashion forward.

Play with tone/color, juxtaposition, or a belt for a more slimming effect. Stay Posh!

Posh Style Ideas! 3.0 Menswear Inspired

Along with a handful of other notable women (Lauren Hutton, Diane Keaton and Jenna Lyons etc.) I feel like I stand alone on an island with an appreciation for leaving something to the imagination.  With our sex + celeb driven culture women have relinquished the power of the mystique. Instead, we reveal as much as could be considered street legal....but I digress. My point is never underestimate the power of mystery--or menswear inspired pieces.

These looks work because they play well with the ideas of what is considered masculine (sharply tailored pants and shirts) against what is considered more feminine (soft lines, heels and handbags). A mash-up or as I like to say masculine-fem.  Stay Posh!

Posh Style Ideas! 2.0 Summer Dresses

Dresses are a easy and efficient way to deliver big style.  What I love about this look is the intensity of the color.  I am admittedly partial to blacks and neutrals but I will do color when a good option is presented.  And below...it's a pretty good option.  The simplicity of the styling lets the color speak for itself. Pared down and simple--the lemon color shines.  Oh and the accessories are key too...POC at the wrist, shoulder and feet. For stylistically simple but modern looks try here or here. Stay Posh!

Posh Style Ideas! 1.0 Denim on Denim

Welcome to Posh Style Week!

So this week my plan is to focus on inspiring stylish ideas for your wardrobe--and dissect the elements that make them posh.  Most of the components of these looks are probably lurking in the dark recesses of your closet so it only requires a bit of imagination and restyling.  If they aren't perhaps some shopping is in order! Start here.

First up, denim on denim.  I think the best approach is to attack it the way these ladies have with similar toned denim.  It feels fresh and inspired like a blank canvas.  The trick here is to have special accessories--great shoes, a scarf or bag.  Or like this this first pict. an insanely **sic** lip.  Stay Posh!
