Cool Comfort: Winter Whites

 

White for winter is not an obvious choice, which is exactly why it has such a strong impact. Cozy, textured fabrics, icy toned makeup, and graphic details give this minimal palette an edge. The trend even extends to the home with designers offering up furnishings and accessories to create a chic winter wonderland, and with the addition of colors and patterns, will be bright and airy right into spring and summer.  Ice Queen no – Ice Goddess, yes.

Fashion Trip: London

London is one of those cities that have something for everyone, from new museums, to           fabulous restaurants, to shopping, and uber-cool hotels.  Each neighborhood has its own vibe  so pack to fit in where ever you might find yourself.  The Brits love a bit of tongue-in-cheek chic so an ironic touch here and there such as Stella McCartney’s Falabella clutch, Marc Jacobs Zip It earrings and Maison Martin Margiela’s rope-stamped ring will give just the right amount of cool quotient.

Peter Pilotto for Target launches today!

 

 

Star designer Peter Pilotto has collaborated with Target on a dynamite collection of affordable and highly coveted fashion and accessories for Spring 2014.  Being a huge fan myself, I was at Target thirty minutes after the door opened and by that time there was nothing smaller than an XL on the shelves at all, and there was a line of women with carts overflowing with dozens of pieces each.  I had done my research online before I went and knew exactly the pieces I wanted and with a little persistence and patience, those exact items came back from the     dressing room to be restocked.  Lucky!! I will be wearing this vibrant tank top while I shooting in Miami these next few weeks, not to mention these amazing sneakers – I live for color and these particularly happy combinations are perfect for me.

My advice is to get online quickly if you want to score some of these amazing pieces for     yourself.  There are gorgeous little dresses and skirts that will be your favorite looks for work, weekend brunch and dinner dates, as the season transitions from winter into early spring. Don’t be left out in the cold!

You can also find the collection on Net-a-Porter, so if your choices and sizes are sold out on Target.com you have a second chance.  Hurry!
