Ear cuffs are having a moment and I gotta say, I’m kind of into it! I used to be a total earring fanatic but in the past few years they’ve taken a hiatus from my wardrobe. I often feel a little too “done up” when I wear earrings, though they are a perfect way to make a glamorous statement.

These ear cuffs, however, are making me rethink the aforementioned earring absence. I love how, like earrings, they can be big and bold or delicate and elegant, adding just a touch of edge to any look. I just bought this set of 3 ear cuffs and can’t wait to try them out with minimalistic outfits like a crisp white dress and simple pair of pumps. A white dress will require some sort of tan at this point, so I guess I’ll be self-tanning this weekend…

As someone who dresses a little more simply on a day-to-day basis, details are really important to me. For example, I love it when pants are lined with a bright color or when a collar is decorated with studs. The Spring 2012 runways were full of details but the gold adornments were the ones that caught and nestled in my eye. I mean, who doesn’t love a little gold bling in their everyday wear?

To put my art history major to good use, let me just say that Balmain’s collection was like Art Deco meets Byzantium with its angular lines decked out in gold. And then there’s Valentino with those perfect gold studs that seem to be the brand’s new defining factor. Jill Stuart may have been an Easter egg in fabric and colors but the nails were bedazzled in gold dots that I’m officially dubbing my next DIY. Dries Van Noten dabbled in the metallic hue with hints of copper on their shoes and Gucci had an Art Deco 1920s collection that I’d give my first child for. But if I had to choose a single gold embellishment for my Spring 2012 wardrobe, I’d have to go with Yves Saint Laurent’s gold-plated pepto bismol pink loafers that I hope to buy the second they hit stores.

Wildcard

January 16, 2012

Since this weekend was full of sleeping bag coats (hello freezing temperatures), football gear (go niners), and cozy sweatshirts (love those hoodies), I decided to toss in a wildcard and get a bit more dressed up on Sunday night. Pairing perhaps the world’s most unexpectedly versatile blouse with some figure flattering skinny jeans, a sparkly clutch and Roberto Cavalli heels, I felt like I was having a Carrie Bradshaw moment ready to take New York by storm and hit up one of those notorious Sex and the City clubs (can I reference this show enough?). Instead I ventured to the Upper East Side and promptly slipped back into sweats to watch the Golden Globes. Though a bold attempt, sometimes a weekend commands comfy clothing and there ain’t nothin’ wrong with that.
