White Plum Boutique

I love to find beautiful costume jewelry at a fair price. I am all for breaking the bank on non-trendy, real, investment jewelry that is classic. White Plum Boutique is a great go to for on-trend show-stoppers. Mix these in with everything you own. xo The Curator

Here are some pieces from White Plum Boutique that I love:

Hermes Inspired Pyramid Bracelet

Green for the Spring

I love the color kelly green. It is fresh and fun and is perfect for the spring. This J Crew shirt is a perfect cut and a beautiful material. It makes a statement but is also classic.  The Alexander Wang Rocco Duffel in vine green looks great with this and also everything else for spring.

French Elle's Best Dressed and some street style

From living in Belgium I read and speak a little bit of French. I love browsing the French Elle on line. It is a great way to keep up with what is going on in Fashion since France is typically ahead of the times. This is the best dressed list for the past year. For more check this out!

Revisiting the Forever 21 Polka Dot jeans and hello Spring colors!

Here is how I am wearing these Forever 21 dotted jeans. Everyday causal. I am wearing with with Sam Edelman Petty Booties in putty. I got this Blythe silk shirt at J Crew on sale for $49 which to me makes it more casual than if I had paid full price! The bright yellow is not on-line but they have other great colors! My sunglasses are the Dayton style from Raen in matte tortoise--I LOVE the shape and the quality. Find most items in my Shop FavoritesI was shopping for a client today and was doing some heavy lifting at Nordstrom Rack. This required clothing I could move in so this is what I wore!

Loeffler Randall and the high low mix

Loeffler Randall is fantastic. It is forward fashion rooted in classic tailored lines. The materials are excellent quality and they are hip but not so much so that they will be gone with the wind of trend. These are investment pieces that give your wardrobe a pop. If you have a few great statement pieces that are investments you can buy your clothing for less and still look like a million bucks! I really believe in spending money on bags and shoes and saving elsewhere. These are the foundation of your wardrobe. Here are some great pieces by Loeffler Randall and how to wear them without breaking the bank. Also, check out my ShopFavorites tab for all of the items for a one stop shop!
