Where do I even start with this look? It’s sort of become somewhat of a uniform for anyone who is even the slightest cult follower of Anine Bing. The entire concept based on continuously building the perfect wardrobe. I work so closely with my clients in-store & on site wardrobe auditing, to not just shop or spend randomly, but to build and spend wisely that not only do I personally love this line, but it works so well with our concept at COVET… We keep detailed records of purchases so we can always go back and fill in just where needed… And if not to be found at COVET, we will find that perfect item for you (HOPEFULLY SOMEWHERE ELSE LOCAL) and if not, then online… Our goal is to make each client completely and totally happy in-love with every single piece in her wardrobe… I LOVE LOVE LOVE this look ever so much-along with mixing it up with different versions of it… Hopefully this makes the PERF Trans/Fall look that inspires readers—don’t hesitate to call or email for more outfit inspiration combos!

OFF THE SHOULDER

SHOP THE POST

Most likely, at this point, we’ve all probably snagged some sort of off the shoulder already: a top, a dress (lots of tops & dresses☺) since this trend hit runways and retailers like gangbusters last spring… And it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon…! Loving some of the spinoffs too like shoulder cutouts, and other versions that you’ll see in future posts to come of this SUPER flattering style (for early viewing check out my instagram/facebook page for styles found only in store*). This is one trend that has been completely on point for me, and for so many of my clients. It’s not just for the size O0’s or size 24’s, but one that can almost go anywhere on anyone, and can go there well-day to night. This particular TIBI piece in my post, was truly one of the first cult favorites in women’s contemporary world, both tops & dresses alike, so I felt I had to pay homage… And this fashion direction is one that has some staying power. Always always staying true to my personal sense of style, I can’t help but love when a particular trend that is ultra-current + one of my all-time favorites collide… It’s like magic for a fashion-girl…! So don’t be afraid to grab more than just one (or two of these) if you are into it-she’s got some staying power!

One of my favorite dresses of all time. May seem sort of strange that a not so basic t-shirt dress is one of my all-time favorites, but every lucky customer who scooped one up knows what I mean…  So easy, so comfy, SO PACKABLE, you seriously don’t ever want to take it off. We had this little Current Elliott maxi IN-STORE at COVET & re-ordered & re-ordered it until we ordered literally every last one in CE’s warehouse until they were all gone..  Although we’re sold out IN-STORE, I’m sharing one of the BEST SUMMER FASHION SECRETS that my clients keep asking!  You can find it here! It’s so much cuter when you tie the bottom like I’ve done in the pictures-right? I wore it one day a couple of weeks ago during LA market, and I seriously got stopped at least 10 times by other buyers asking who my dress was by… I can’t remember the last time I have received so many compliments on one of the most simple casual comfy dresses?! I have to say though, I do see why & I think the lucky ladies that got theirs at COVET, would/have said the same-it’s like wearing your pajamas out and about, but very very cool pajamas. Sort of like pulling the trigger on these guys (thank you Melissa Coleman @ Clover for the push-not like it took a lot) thank you they’re divine! Can’t wait until they arrive to wear them with my dress so I can wear my pajamas and slippers to work-GENIUS!

There’s so much I’m loving about this post! My Mother cropped flares are my favorite part of the outfit, hands down…! The Golden Goose are right up there too, along with my statement necklace… We’ve done so well in store with these cropped flares that we are now sold out, but we just received the same style in white☺ The Army Jacket is sold out everywhere online, but we’ll be receiving them in store any day…
The best part is when Jake’s shows up to a shoot. It so much fun to capture certain moments as he’s growing & I feel so lucky to be able to bring him with me (except when he hides my favorite Valentino’s in a random handbag that goes missing for months)…☺ That’s super fun! But it’s so worth it when I’m able to look back at older posts and see how much he’s grown along the way. It makes it that much more fun–Until next post, happy shopping all…!!!

“ABOVE THE CITY”

We had such an amazing turnout at our “Above The City” Spring ’16 preview that I hosted at Saks Fifth Avenue, New Orleans the weekend of March 19th & I wanted to thank everyone for coming while thanking Saks & Lafayette 148 New York for having me too. I was so happy to be a part of presenting this collection to the women in New Orleans. The pieces in these deliveries were not only perfect for our ladies (and our weather), but so many styles work well for travelling this summer whether you’re going to the Hamptons or West Palm Beach. Not only was the the collection completely on point with key trends that were shown at Spring’s Fashion week in New York, but with Lafayette 148 New York, there are some really special components that you can’t find other places. I’ve included some of my favorite looks above, that provide a really fantastic representation of some of those key trends that I mentioned that are important this year. Such as “All White, or the Wide Leg Pants (culottes, cropped, and flared, like the KENMARE PANT that I wore)… All amazing! Some other relevant trends that won’t be going anywhere are groups like the Awning Stripes & all of the muted colors like the “Bateau Blue” & the khakis & the earth tones. And I LOVED all of the vests! So of the moment…! But my favorite part of the entire collection is how everything translates back to another style. You can wear the Leo Striped Topper and pair it over the Twiggy Striped dress like we had it in the show, or you could wear it with one of my personal favorite Shell tops (that I actually wore), the Aztec Textured Top, & take it back to your favorite Cropped Bleeker. I was loving how each piece could work back to so many styles so many different ways. And that’s one of the reasons I love dressing my clients, so they can get as much wear out of each & every piece in her closet. I’ve already started special ordering some of my favorites for my clients & this certainly was a fun way to spend a Saturday afternoon…

I wanted to send out a quick post to give everyone a last minute idea for a super cute Easter outfit that this fashion blogger will be wearing this year ☺ While it can be fun to really dress for holidays, sometimes it’s nice to be comfortable & just go with your favorite jeans. I’m opting for the later this year — So go easy on yourself this Easter, if things have been as hectic in your house as they have been in mine. I can’t wait to wear my gray skinny jeans, Anine Bing Cami & lace bra, and an IRO leather jacket that is from Clover in New Orleans. All things I pulled from my closet. You sort of can’t go wrong with a look like this… And I’m obsessed with the DINA pump by Alice + Olivia in nude suede I’m wearing here. I have this pump in both black & nude, and all of my clients will hear me go on and on about how much love & wear both. I’m sure you have seen me wear the black version in a lot of my posts bc they are my go to’s… So I hope everyone is having a nice relaxing long weekend & I also hope my post gives some last minute Easter outfit inspiration. Oh and if you do have to dress it up a bit, if you’re going to church, or if your family or friends call for a dressier look, you can just as easily toss on a pair of white/off with silk track pants or a white/off white flare trousers like these here. A dressier pant rather than a jean with a silk cami & moto will kick it up a notch for a killer modern look, yet still just as easy & to put together… Happy Easter & Happy weekend everyone!

This line looks better than ever & I couldn’t be more exited about the direction it’s is going… For a sneak peak into the collection, inspired by “Leisurely terrace parties in Soho,” I’ve chosen some of my favorite styles that Saks has in store in my “Shop The Post” that you will be able to find on Saturday, along with so many others. Cocktails will be served at 11:30 & the presentation will begin promptly at Noon. I hope to see everyone Saturday!

It’s that time of year… Most of us in New Orleans are getting our Spring wardrobes beach-ready…☺ Easter will be here before we know it! Which means we need to prepare with some pieces that aren’t just purchased strictly “for the beach,” but they need to be incorporated into your closet so that you can wear them before, after, and during. I’m always a big fan of multi-purpose clothes. It makes so much most sense to me when thinking price per wear. And any of my clients I work closely with, I think know by now my love for a Kaftan (and it can be spelled with a K☺. When personal shopping for my customers, I always encourage them to have a few, some easy breezy cool cotton ones like this Goddis one, and a couple of silk printed ones. I love this Goddis one (first that blue is just perfect) and you can wear it as a cover up with some gladiators and bring it to the beach to wear as cover up, or you can wear it as a dress and toss on a slip & the Stuart Weitzman’s (like I did here) after coming up from the beach to grab dinner while still feeling super cute & special. And some of the silk printed Kaftans, not only can you wear them as cover-ups, but those can go WAY dressy! You can take it to a cocktail level (I’ve included a couple in my “SHOP THE POST”), pile on the gold jewelry and you’ll feel like the most fabulous girl in the room. I’ll be posting some more must-have’s for Spring/Summer ’16… Happy shopping!

One of my favorite looks… Of course during the summer, but even more during the winter–or during this transitional time when you can still wear your white jeans with not just heels, but with your favorite OTK boots:) Oh and I can’t help but love a duster year-round… And love that this one is not just super comfy, but on sale! The earrings too! Until next post… THREEheartsSM
