Amazing tribute song to baby girl, Blue Ivy. Beautiful!
As I perused through recaps of Paris fashion week, I was absolutely color shocked when I saw the Elie Saab’s Spring 2012 collection. The stunning pieces included subtle features that were so beautifully exaggerated by the collection’s minimal color palette. Pearly beiges, warm yellows and oranges, and deep-hued greens and blues were the backdrop for dramatic sequins, feminine lace, languid silohuettes, ‘holy legs!” slits, and ‘omjeesh that’s low’ necklines. The collection of colors provided the perfect jumping off point for these standout features, which, alone, would have fallen short.
Got me thinking..how do you use this approach in the home? Check it…
They say you don’t really know what you’ve got till it’s gone. It is because of this point that I’ve become determined to utilize all of my favorite summer staples to their fullest Fall potential. When transitioning my summer items, I try to layer on tougher fabrics and chunkier pieces. This balances the lightness of summer materials and adds the extra warmth needed for the cooling temps. Check out one of my favorite summer skirts, transformed for the Fall!J.Crew Goldmine Sweater | Stuart Weitzman Nude Pumps (seen here) And holding all the elements together: these perfect gold details.

There are also times when what you’ve got just needs an extra little oomph to get its swagger back. The top of my dresser had recently become a graveyard for all things girly, sparkly, and candle-y. When I found a great deal on these Moroccan-inspired lanterns at Anthropologie, I just knew I couldn’t hold back. Though this exotic, bohemian style is not normally my go-to, the distressed, time-worn look is actually an unexpected complement to the prim silver and diamond embellishments. They add a subtle layer of history to the more modern, feminine details. Perfect finishing touch to make me appreciate what’s right in front of me!
