Warm Weather Leather – Spring 2013 Trend

Leather was huge this past fall and winter and the trend stays strong through spring with lots of options for warm weather leather. Available in a multitude of colors and shapes, you'll be able to find leather jackets, skirts, dresses, and shorts to suit whatever your style maybe.

Choose an unexpected shape like high-waist pants, a trenchcoat, or shorts in a flirty hue, a nude, or a shiny metallic. Steer clear of anything with tough details like studs, laced-up sides, or grommets—this is a ladylike vibe. Pair it with delicate silk or lace, or even more leather, and opt for a super-sheer body shaper, such as Spanx’s Skinny Britches, to slip on underneath. 

Here are my picks for warm weather leather items to wear in your everyday life!

Mad about Florals – Spring 2013 Trend

Loving the modern floral prints popping up all over the place. Definitely feels like spring is around the corner.
Embrace this uplifting pattern either in small doses like shoes, belts or bags or in larger doses likes pants/jeans, dresses or tops. Either way, you'll attract tons of sunshine!

Since these prints are a bit edgy and already full of personality, best to wear minimum accessories, stay away from anything too pretty, and maybe leave your hair a bit messy!

Here are my picks for modern floral items to wear in your everyday life!

Gorgeous 2013 Golden Globes Fashion

Love the awards season and all the delicious fashion that comes with it.  My favorite is watching the red carpet during the Golden Globes and Oscars.

The colors that dominated the Golden Globes Red Carpet tonight were Black, White/Nude & Red.

Black Dresses - Some of the noteworthy black dresses were worn by Julianne Moore (Tom Ford), Nicole Kidman (McQueen), Stacie Kiebler (Armani Prive), Kate Hudson (McQueen), Sofia Vergara, and Salma Hayek (Gucci)
Kate Hudson looked gorgeous in this sleek, embellished McQueen dress
White Dresses - Hayden Panettiere (Cavalli), Jennifer Lopez (Zuhair Murad), Kerry Washington (Miu Miu), Anne Hathaway (Chanel), Amanda Seyfried (Givenchy), and Lea Michele (Elie Saab) all wore white
Hayden Panettiere was absolutely stunning in this Cavalli dress
Red Dresses - Marion Cottilard (Dior), Zoey Deschanel (Oscar de la Renta), Jennifer Lawrence (Dior), Claire Danes (Versace), Jennifer Garner (Vivienne Westwood), and Naomi Watts (Zac Posen) were amongst  the dare devils to choose the bold red for the red carpet!

Here are some of the other trends I picked up:

The Plunging neckline - Eva Longoria, Amy Poehler, Jessica Chastain, Kristin Whiig and Katherine McPhee wore this fearlessly.

Low backs hit some new lows - Taylor Swift, Julianna Margolies, Eva Longoria and Julianne Moore rocked this trend.
Strapless dresses were very popular - Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Alba, Megan Fox, Lucy Liu, Debra Messing and Anne Hathaway were among the ones that rocked this style.

Big surprises of the night for me were Halle Berry (Atelier Versace) & Lucy Liu (Carolina Herrera) in printed gowns, Rachel Weisz in a strange Louis Vuitton dress and my least favorite (sadly) was Jessica Chastain in an ill fitted sea foam blue Calvin Klein dress.

Ooh La Lace!

Lace is still the protagonist of the season. There is nothing more feminine and sexy than a lace dress. Besides the classic colors nude, black and white, there are so many options available from jewel tones to metallics to neon lace this season. Thanks to its sexy and elegant characteristics, lace can make anyone look graceful, girly and fashionable
I am loving lace dresses with a leather jacket and a pair of black ankle booties for a glam rock look for the evening!
Here are some of my favorite lace dresses......
