Fashion Friday 8/31

Hope everyone has had a lovely week! Today’s spotlight is on the beautiful class-act Ivanka Trump Kushner

She is always so well put-together! All of her outfits are beautiful!

Her wedding to Jared Kushner in 2009

I also love how she is always so involved in charities. I’m a big supporter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation and her recent involvement for this charity was really sweet:

She is definitely a style inspiration!

Have a great weekend~ xoxo


Wool Trend Coming Soon

Hello everyone! Sorry for being gone for a while…I’ve been busy modeling for an amazing line which I’d love to highlight for you today! 

I love this USA-made line Chalet and I’m so honored that they’ve had me model for them several times now…

Their Fall 2012 Wool collection is soooo gorgeous! It is a great line owned and made by amazing people!

All of their pieces are so classic and it is just another reminder that good fashions are always in style. You can find their line in department stores like Nordstrom and high-end boutiques. Just ask for Chalet.

Every woman should have a good wool coat in her wardrobe. A good piece will generally last a lifetime and can be used to be stylish every year. Look for a classic fit that is also feminine. You can choose either basic colors like black and tan or you can opt for a statement coat of color that can enhance any outfit…

This pink coat was found on and is just so beautiful! The cut and feminine details make wool so cool…

Of course, these are all things that Grace Kelly would wear…love this Polyvore set! A wool wrap is also a great choice!

Love the Fall/Winter 2012 Burberry campaign

I know it’s not cold enough yet to be wearing wool every day; however, it’s a good idea to get prepared with a classic wool coat to last a lifetime of being stylish 🙂

Fashion Friday 8/17/12

My Fashion Friday to all of you this week is my collection of California desert sunset photos that I have taken for the past several months whenever I go to the desert for some peace and quiet from my crazy busy life:)  Today I will share them so that you may all find some inspiration in these “paintings in the sky” 🙂

Those who know me, know that I love sunsets! Sure, sunrises are pretty too and so are blue skies with white puffy clouds…but sunsets are beautiful, so romantic and inspiring…

I think a beautiful sunset filled with such color, can inspire any designer to create something lovely…
All of my sunset photos were taken with my iPhone 4 camera…

Sunsets inspire all types of clothes and accessories, just look around you! May you all take a moment to stop and enjoy a beautiful summer sunset and share it with a loved one–it’s one of God’s most beautiful gifts!


Fashion Friday 8/10/12

How is everyone? I thought that this Fashion Friday should show the black leather trend that is perfect for right now, wherever you may be! This is a great trend to cross over into colder weather too…

In Los Angeles, Selena Gomez shows how leather can be used just before the weather turns…

Whether it’s a short black leather jacket, boots, or both, you can be spot on for this trend…

Brigitte Bardot shows us today that some things never go out of style!

Angelina Jolie gives the look that black leather can be both classy and sexy!

And I love the Stradivarius Collection!

You can never go wrong with black leather boots..just find the style that best suits you!

I just want to thank everyone who is following my blog from around the world! I am truly humbled and you are all so inspiring…    Thank you 🙂


Vanity Fair International Best Dressed List

Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend! I thought this was worth mentioning…the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, topped the list for Vanity Fair’s 73rd International Best Dressed list for their September 2012 issue.

See who else made the list at

A really cool list of her looks sorted by color was compiled and I thought you would all enjoy this! No matter where you are in the world, what you do, or what your coloring is, we can all learn from her classy style and poise!

Summer Trend Report

I don’t know about you, but I’m not ready to give up on summer just yet! It’s August now so there’s still at least one month to go! For many of us, that means hitting the beach or pool…but what about a stylish swim cover up? The trend for this season has been for beautiful, flowing, sheer fabrics that are feminine and still cover you up whether you are at the beach or the pool…

Here are some tips on where to score some beautiful swim cover ups for a great deal:


Victoria’s Secret

Beach Bunny from California

OR buy something similar and make it your own swim cover up!

You can go for beautiful splashes of color or a simple color to best match your skin tone…

You can wear yours at the beach, pool, or at the US Open of Surfing going on right now in Huntington Beach!

It’s so beautiful there right now and so much fun! If you can’t make it, then enjoy the live surf cam in Huntington Beach:

Happy surfing from Surf City USA!
