Look Love: Christina Ricci

I know, I know – SJP was the belle of the Met Gala ball. But I have to say my favorite look was the tartan frock from Vivienne Westwood that Christina Ricci rocked with a dazzling set of Harry Winston jewels to accent. Punk rock princess love.

Bag Love: Soho from Steven by Steve Madden

I have been trying to put myself on a bag hiatus. Mostly this is because I want a new bag every season and spring is no exception – especially with all the bright colors to complement the ever increasing sunshine. I just couldn’t resist posting about these ones though, the perfect spring tote purse – the Soho from Steven by Steve Madden. It comes in a sweet mini size ($178) perfect for the essentials or a more oversized tote ($198) for carrying all your trinkets and making the summertime transition to the beach!

Look Love: Kimbra

I realize the Grammy Awards have come and gone, but I can’t stop crushing on Kimbra’s ethereal and edgy dress designed by Jamie Lee Major. I love the details that make her look like a fairy and a circus performer at the same time, yet still retaining fashion rock star composition in the shape of the dress itself. It is princess and indie rock star all at the same time – sounds right up my alley.

Drool worthy: Hermes Oceane

I randomly checked out Hermes website today (shopping for hopeful Valentine’s gifts… who am I kidding?) and stopped short when I got to this amazing, drool worthy, stunner of a bracelet: the Oceane. Retailing for a mere $229,000 – something I can only dream about… sigh. (Did I mention there is a matching necklace?)

Look Love: Gap

Let’s face it, as a child of the 80’s and 90’s – I grew up loving the Gap. I mean, who doesn’t know their iconic look, sing-songy and dancey ads… they even were featured in an episode of Glee. (Gap Attack anyone?) I loved them for bringing fashion to those who regularly shopped at the local mall and for providing me the “it” plastic bag to pack for sleep overs.

While some underlying quality of their signature look has stayed constant, the Gap of today is a giant fashion forward step from the Gap that I remember as a kid. Browsing on their site recently, here are two looks that caught my eye.

gap ruffle

I seriously love this clean and preppy, but with a feminine edge look. (Especially the oxfords!)

Shop the look here.

gap nerd

And this… the modern smart nerd girl gone trendy. The return of the boyfriend blazer, one of the comebacks from the 80’s that is welcome to stay as far as I’m concerned. (Along with cropped denim jackets…)

Shop this look here.

What is your favorite Gap memory?

Shoe Love: The Wedge

What is it about hitting mid-winter in February and the wedge sandal? Every year, I feel almost taunted by these colorful shoes – with their promise of sand and sunshine – as I sit looking out into the grey Seattle sky. This year is no different.

However, I am always grateful for the burst of color they interject into the bland winter palette. They remind us that spring is just around the corner and the promise of warmer weather and frocks in bright colors are on their way. Here are a sample from this year’s collections.
