Posh Obsessions! Baubles

Confession, I love a little bling.

Enter Bauble Bar which bills itself as the ultimate source for fashion jewelry.  The site is massive and features pretty much every style of accessory that is or thinks it's about to be on trend.

I am not 100% sure of the qual vs price but here are a couple of items that caught my eye in a spread featuring Ashley Madekwe (ringmybell.com) ...planning to try them out soon since they now ship internationally. Stay Posh.

Posh Style! LFW Street Style

Hello!

This week marked London Fashion Week which meant all of the 'it girls' were out in force.  I did not get to take part in the festivities sadly, but did get a full frontal view of fabulous fashion from the sidelines.  Whoa.

I still haven't worked up the courage to shoot photos of randoms in the street (if so you'd be viewing picts of this dope chic I met at Brown's) so we will have to live through the lenses of other photographers for now.  Here are a few of my favorite street style looks from Who What Wear and Harper's Bazaar recent features. Stay Posh!

Posh Travel: Lisboa, Lisbon...Get there!

Whoa I am in love.

I recently had the fortune of traveling to Lisbon or Lisboa as it were on a whim to meet a fellow world traveler. What started as a casual conversation in Panama turned into a love affair with Portugal.  Funny how love works, always when you least expect it.

Lisbon, the capital of Portugal,  has a rich history that dates back to at least 1200 years BC.  Lisbon is a port city and surrounded by water.  Love. It also has many hills that make the landscape very picturesque. Love. It is small but mighty. Love.

One of things I also loved about this city was it's comfort with the wear and tear of time.  Intentional or not there was something romantic about the fact that every building hadn't been renovated within an inch of their past lives. Instead, some were allowed to to age--or crumble perhaps-- gracefully.

Ladies something to think about...sometimes the face filled with lines is more interesting than the face filled with silicone or botox or whatever your poison may be.  But I digress...there was so much to appreciate about this affordable city from the food, the wine (port) to the people.  Definitely, worth a visit if you find yourself in search of a different type of European escape. Stay Posh!

Posh Obsessions: Headdress


Rain way go away...impossible wish to ask for when living in London.  I've had to get really creative with head gear on rainy days...hats, turbans and scarves are the accessories of choice.

While browsing I stumbled upon a few inspirational picts of Marian Kihogo...London Stylist and sometimes blogger.  I think they are older but still goodies...Stay Posh! xxoo

Posh Style! February Means Fur

It's February, it's London and I am seeing a lot of fur.

Faux or for realz...everyone is picking their poison.

I have this vision that remains of me in my ideal fur of a pure white...Dr. Zhivago style.  Glam. The jury still out on whether this is faux or for realz... In the meantime I can live through others. .. Stay Posh! xxoo

Posh Style Alert: Don't Worry...Be Happy

So per my last post I am learning the art of being patient.  Everything comes with time...

I guess that means a getting a decent internet connection too.  For those that have been checking in you'll notice a lull...months to be exact.  Apparently, in this country it's acceptable to deny internet access.   C'mon Sky Broadband you can do it...1 month and a number of days is way too long to wait for internet.

I wait.  You suffer...no Miss Posh Life :(.  For those that gave up on me...traffic is down...please come back.

But on to brighter topics...me griping about internet is not why you browse....



Everything about this...makes.me.happy.  Stay posh!
