Posh Style is Eternal! Iconic Saint Laurent Smoking Jacket

Hello Poshinistas! 

Monday Motivation-- Focus on the negative and guess what?  More of the same. Point your time and energy towards positivity and THAT is what will manifest.   Which brings me to why we are here today...I told you big things were on the horizon- #BELIEVE that.

I recently received the most amazing request that could not have been a bigger honor OR more my steez.  Farfetch asked me to create a signature look featuring the ICONIC Saint Laurent Smoking Jacket....

Soo let's just pause there and let it sink in. OK. 

If you read this blog regularly you will know that a) I am obsessed with black blazers and the color black in general b) if I could pick a capsule wardrobe of a select few luxury fashion designers Saint Laurent would definitely be one that topped the list c) I'm sorry... is there a more covetable blazer than this one?  Swoon. OK back to scheduled programming. 

The Bowes Museum and the Foundation Pierre Bergé - Yves Saint Laurent are collaborating to create Yves Saint Laurent: Style is Eternal, a comprehensive display of the French fashion designer’s work and life. The exhibit will highlight the defining elements of his vision, and the significant influence it has had on fashion. Yves Saint Laurent once said, “Fashion fades, style is eternal.”  Articulating this idea, the exhibition will include iconic pieces from the Russian Collection, the Mondrian dresses and my personal favorite the Tuxedo.  If you find yourself in the UK (head northeast) by or before October 25th, definitely check it out. 

So the ask? Create a signature look using Saint Laurent pieces reflecting Eternal Style (see above--are you still with me???!!).  Below are my two looks.  As you know I am a shoe fiend so had a difficult time deciding which look I liked more.  So let's call it late-Summer versus Fall. And yes I would rock a leather turban in the Summer--have we met? Heat be damned!!!

My picks were simple, classic blazer, leather shorts for a modern but timeless vibe, white shirt (with neck tie) and these gorgeous over-the-knee boots /or gold pumps.  For details, I choose the iconic clutch in an animal print, a statement ring and oh and a leather turban if you are committed ;) like I am.  Think of it as a modern but casual tuxedo.  Links are live should you get the itch.  To complete the look I would definitely recommend neutral make-up look punctuated by a red lip.

All of these pieces work very well together or as stand alone statement pieces within other outfits season after season. Let me know what you think and which look you like better or what piece you wish the fashion gods would bestow upon you. Stay Posh!

Posh Style! OOOTD: A simple wrap

It's a wrap. I love this look for it's simplicity.  No surprise it's a street style look from Stockholm. The shoe choice grew on me as it adds an unexpected detail interest.  Stay Posh!

Posh Travel! Point of View

I recently escaped to Miami Beach with one goal in mind...turn my brain off.  Surprisingly, it actually worked.  Five things I learned on this trip:


  • Life keeps moving (the world is bigger than the bubble you are in)
  • The ocean washes away life's ills (same theme as above)
  • It is just not possible to be Paleo around good Pina Coladas (and actually why would you want to)
  • People meet you were you are
  • Refreshed minds beget fresh thinking and new dreams

Below is one of my favorite snaps from my fabulous stay at one of my new top three hotels on Miami Beach ...

Posh Style! Spring Denim --Perfectly Simple

So I've been working on a capsule wardrobe project simultaneously with a friend.  Doing that has helped me realize how simple dressing can really be with a little purging and clarity.  If you want a really extreme example of capsule dressing you must read this. But for the rest of us there are baby steps.  And nothing is more classic and perfect than denim and white. 

Below are a few simple but good interpretations.  Stay Posh!
