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!

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

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.

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!
