Label Love: Elizabeth Olsen Goes Glam in Ralph Lauren

Elizabeth Olsen has gotten increasingly popular within the past year, breaking out as an actress and getting face time on/in various magazines.  After appearing in Martha Marcy May Marlene, she has created a name for herself that has separated her from her famous last name. Both down to earth and not afraid to laugh at herself, Elizabeth Olsen is anything from a diva. Along with making a statement in the acting world, she has established a highly glamorous sense of style- something that sets her apart from her sisters, Mary-Kate and Ashley. In the Fall 2012 USA issue of Glamour, Elizabeth can be seen sporting a beaded cardigan from Ralph Lauren. In the photo, Elizabeth sits on a black stool wearing black slacks, booties, a white dress shirt and the Ralph Lauren cardigan. The integration of the simple colors she wears, along with the bold cardigan, works very well- allowing for a strong look, without being too overbearing. The theme of Elizabeth’s spread is military inspired pieces- which are all the rave for the upcoming fall season.

5 Signature Looks Brought To You by Max Studio

The great thing about fashion is that it’s not just a “one size fits all.” When I say this, I don’t actually mean size, but rather style. We express ourselves through our fashion and it’s what makes us, us. Imagine if everyone had the same style? BORING. No matter what your taste is, we’ve compiled a guide to bring out the best “you.” So what’s it going to be? Are you flirtatiously fitted, painlessly preppy, have an oversized obsession, sexy in stripes or fabulously flowy? Let’s find out.

This look is for the flirtatious woman who loves wearing fitted clothing to show off sexy curves.  Look for pieces with with gathered material in places you would want to show off such as the waist. Finding fitted clothes, instead of reverting back to middle school and wearing less of it, will allow you to look awesome without coming across as being slutty. There is a time and place to show skin! Clockwise from left: Long Sleeve Jersey Dress, $148: Side Cinch Maxi Skirt, $38: Short Sleeve Dress, $148: Slim Dress, $98: Long Leather Gloves, $98: Wedge Boot, $249

If you are the kind of woman who drools over the Ralph Lauren catalogue, listen up. The preppy look is a timeless look- crisp, clean and classic, what’s not to love? To avoid falling victim to the stereotypical “preppy polo”, try mixing plaids with neutral sweaters and flats. You can even mix a polo with a sweater draped over your shoulders as seen above or try knotting button up shirts together at the bottom for a retro take on the look. Clockwise from left: Slim Trousers, $78: Oversized Chambray Shirt, $88: Slim Fitting Shirt, $68: Ballet Flat, $99: Puckered Plaid Ruffled Dress, $78: Drop Shoulder Wrap Top, $38: Cardigan, $78:

The oversized look is one of my favorites for the winter. It’s cozy, comfortable and an easy style to throw together on those chilly days in December, when getting up is nearly impossible. To avoid coming off looking like an Olsen twin, pair your oversized item with a tight opposite. For example, if you wear an oversized sweater, try wearing skinny jeans. It will add contrast to the bulky sweater on top, while still showing that there’s a person underneath those clothes! Clockwise from right: DELAVÉ LINEN SHORTS, $38: Dolman Sleeve Cardigan, $118: Cuffed Over the Knee Lug Sole Boots, $350: Oversized V Neck Cable Sweater, $128: Draped Sleeved Dolman Coat, $68

Stripes can not only be very flattering, but also interesting to look at. They add dimension to an outfit and can be dressed up and down. Don’t be afraid to mix stripes with bold colors. It may seem like you need to go with more of a neutral color at first, but once you start playing around you’ll see how much fun you can have. Short Sleeve Pleated Dress, $98: Mixed Strip Skirt, $78: Heathered Mini-Stripe Dress, $78: High Heel Short Boots, $98: Long Sleeve Top, $68: Surplus Dress, $78

For more of a dressed up look, flowing fabrics are elegant and bring out the inner greek goddess within. It’s a refreshing break from more traditional and simple dresses. Depending on the event you’re attending, you can choose from a longer or shorter dress. Either way, you will feel like a million bucks. Counter clockwise: Ruffled Dress, $128: Maxi Dress, $78: IRIDESCENT CHIFFON SIDE-DRAPE DRESS, $248: Braided Heels, $68: Crinkled Chiffon Long Dress, $198: Silk Chiffon Watercolour Dress, $248

First MM6 Maison Martin Margiela Store opens in NYC

If you’re going to choose any location to put a store, already establish or not, it’s got to be NYC. That’s exactly what contemporary womenswear line, MM6 Maison Martin Margiela, has done. MM6 has just opened its doors in the concrete jungle, marking the line’s first brick & mortar store since 1997, when it was launched. Taking pride in NYC’s modern and international atmosphere, the company saw it as the ideal location for it’s first store. Visitors and locals alike will gather together at the 500 square-foot store to “shop till they drop” at MM6’s Bleaker Street location in Greenwich Village. “Bleecker Street’s effortless yet trendy, friendly yet alternative ambiance appealed to us immediately. We chose this location because it’s very Margiela and put simply, because we love it!”, a representative said. The store possesses the imaginative and original vision of the Maison’s distinctive aesthetic and will offer a broad range of accessories and clothing. Bleecker Street’s effortless yet trendy, friendly yet alternative ambiance appealed to us immediately.

In the window of MM6 are neon light boxes, which create a spectacular meshing of light as it is reflected and bounced from mirror to mirror. Behind the windows is the store’s line of clothing, accessories and footwear, arranged in a simplistic way- further adding to the atmosphere of the store. The shelving is inspired by traditional New York City ceiling tiles, opening and closing to hold items. A synthesis of modern concepts and Greenwich Village’s charming nature brings white walls, contrasted with a brick fireplace. Calming neutrals, whites, greys, natural woods and silver are toughened up against the raw, New York City cement inspired moquette. In celebration of the opening, two exclusive items will be available for purchase in-store- a signature t-shirt and tote bag that are both printed with a design of the Manhattan skyline on them.

During our initial consultation, we conduct an interview to determine what services you need, while gathering additional information about your lifestyle, such as shopping and dressing habits. We analyze the space and determine a scope of work to begin an estimate.

2. The Closet Edit
Here we examine your closet, inventory your wardrobe and accessories, and then begin working through what stays and goes to help you revamp your style. Taking away the clutter and leaving only relevant pieces is not only therapeutic, but is a necessity for any closet and wardrobe makeover. Merchandising the clothes, similar to a store or showroom, is the the best way to achieve a complete wardrobe clarification.

During the final design stage, decisions are made about the space’s layout and aesthetic. This is where the space allocation begins. Our team of architects and designers devise a plan based on your personal inventory, taste, and lifestyle. The scope of work can be a complete build out or a simple organization installation.

4. Clos-ette’s Results
Clos-ette’s goal is to build a closet space that organizes and merchandises the wardrobe so it is wearable and cared for while also beautifully displayed. The Clos-ette products were designed specifically with this in mind. Once your clothes are installed in your beautiful new closet, you’ll feel like you have a whole new wardrobe. Only then can you go ahead and shop your closet!

Signature Summer Scents | Haute Florals for Your Summer-Lovin Nights

The best compliment you can give a woman is “What fragrance are you wearing?”, for those of us that like to layer—take a wild guess. Getting older can be fun, life becomes more refined by the minute, and maturity reminds us of why having a signature scent in one of the most important things to possess.

Three of my favorite fragrance debuts this Summer are Glowing by J. Lo—with it’s light up cylinder around the atomizer canister, L’Eau de Chloe and it’s essence of class…along with Roberto Cavalli and it’s saucy sex-appeal that only the fashion house could embody. You can tell the world of a woman by her choice in fragrance, coy or cute, sweet or demure, flowers or spice and love or lust.

The following fragrances and their characteristics should help you decide which one/s suit you:

Glowing by J. Lo:

This fragrance screams uber feminine and inner radiance from within. It’s Floral Woody Amber scent embodies the aura of a modern forward thinking woman. The bottle was inspired by the beauty and the lines of Baccarat crystal, when the atomizer is pressed, the bottle beautifully illuminates for 15 seconds.

L’Eau de Chloe

The jet-set city-chic woman who loves the idea of a random bouquet of roses from a endearing admirer is the quintessential Chloe gal. Instantly recognized by her sophisticated rose scent, this new Chloe interpretation is revealed with a soft green hue which echoes the freshness of the clean fragrance.

Roberto Cavalli

So, you want to be noticed? Don’t we all— whip out your feline grace and a unstoppable sexy energy. Crowned by a tiara-shaped cap formed by Roberto Cavalli’s golden seal, the bottle is adorned with a tiger-print necklace reminiscent of its creator’s emblematic animal prints.

I’m not one for day-to-night fragrances, per se—but if you really want to take these up a notch layer either the J. Lo or the L’Eau de Chloe with Roberto Cavalli’s saucy scent for date time. Who’s to say what your signature scent should be? Only your body chemistry nose, and your love for all that is— well fragranced, can discern. Enjoy the fun of deciding how to concoct your daily signature scent and rival at the admires you attract along the way.

Fashion Overture: Judith Leiber Launches Contemporary Bag Collection

Summer 2012 has been flying by and although it’s already about a week into August, the thoughts of fresh fall fashion have been keeping things optimistic. It’s exciting to hear about new development on luxe brands. Judith Leiber’s new contemporary bag collection, Overture, has made things ever sweeter. Just in time for fall, the designer who was previously most noted for her celebrity loved crystal minaudieres, has launched an affordable collection of handbags. Now, not only will Judith Leiber accessories be worn on the red carpet, but will also be designed so that they can be taken out on the town seven days a week.

Even though this is a new line, the collection’s name comes along with some history. The term “overture” is what Judith Leiber used to describe the opening price point styles in her previous collections during the 1980’s. Jana Matheson, the company’s current creative director sought inspiration from this, feeling like 2012 would be the perfect year to release a line with a concept based on the word. Noticing the increasing popularity in the contemporary market, Jana wanted to create unique and special designs for today’s trendy urban girl. The modern collection consists of 31 styles of minaudieres, clutches and cross body bags. Clean silhouettes are enhanced by animal prints, foil treatments, embossed pythons and oversized locks. All the elements of the designs are reflections of what Judith loves; exotic skins with a twist of whimsy and dramatized ornaments. Overture products retail between $295 - $995, which is more affordable than Judith Leiber’s  Couture line. Don’t be alarmed though, the strong detail and eternal aesthetics that Judith Leiber customers love is still very present in all Overture products. Looks like you don’t have to spend a fortune to look like a celebrity after all.

Willow Smith Shows off her Threads of Friendship

I recently saw a picture of both Willow Smith at a red carpet event sporting Thread of Friendship’s Jennifer Friendship bracelet and couldn’t help but be jealous at not only how awesome it was, but aslo how she displays friendship. Growing up, my best friend and I each had a piece of a heart shaped friendship necklace that we treasured. Threads of Friendship embodies the strong feeling that surrounds the whole concept of growing up and making real friends…I just love the idea, and it serves as a reminder that you’re never alone when you have your BFF. Complete with gold chains and tons of color, their friendship bracelets make mine look like a rock on a chain. Their website explains that Threads of Friendship is a unique line of jewelry modeled after the current friendship bracelet trend. The collection was created by fashion designer Andrea Barna and business partner, Kollene McGinley. Unique in both their design and message, the bracelets celebrate the beauty of friendship. Andrea and Kollene found inspiration for Threads of Friendship from the ideals of friendship and solidarity. Friendship is defined as “the quality or state of being friendly.” Friendship bracelets serve as a symbol of friendship, support, and unity. In the 1970s friendship bracelets became popular and were responsible for bringing friends together through the act of giving a bracelet to represent the bond of friendship. The bracelets create a sense of solidarity- linking individuals together across the world. Threads of Friendship is dedicated to cultivating friendship through the gift of our embellished friendship bracelets adorned by rhinestones and charms. A portion of the proceeds of the bracelets are donated to the Best Buddies charity and the Walkabout Foundation. Feel loved, look great and help out the world? I’ll take that any day. I guess you could say that Willow does more in her spare time than “whipping her hair back and forth.”
