Look of the Week: Rain or Shine

Bold Orange Trench Brings Sunshine to a Rainy Day

April showers bring May flowers, or so the saying goes.  

This week's look pairs a bold orange trench coat with a great floral print sleeveless dress -- perfect for now when you get caught in the rain, and even better once summer is finally here. 

We love the on-trend, bold navy-on-white floral print of this Hobbs dress, size 8, was $75 now $56.25. And for a rainy day, why not add a pop of color with this orange trench coat from Michael Kors, size M, was $75 now $56.25.  

We've paired it with these classic, faux snakeskin print flats from Alexandre Birman, size 39.5, were $65 now $48.75.  A simple strand of navy beads, were $40 now $30, and a stunning Chloe Faye crossbody bag in navy leather and suede, $1,095, finish the look.

Look of the Week: Watercolor Palette

Soft Shades Soften Polished Look for Work

A blazer and pants for the office don't have to be drab.  We are loving the soft watercolor palate of this week's look featuring soft blues and greens.

Pair this light blue pant from Hugo Boss, size XS, NWT, $75, with a striped, high-neck short sleeved sweater from Marika Charles, size S, $45, in green and blue.  The fun neckline and spring colors add a little pop to this look.  To take it to the office add this ivory blazer from Theory, size 2, $75, on the top. 

We finished the look with a pair of mint patent later pumps from Dries Van Norten, size 36.5, $75, and a great satchel from Nancy Gonzalez, $895, in blue.  A great belt from Paloma Piccaso cinches the waist, $30.

An arm full of bangles, each $20, and a gold chain necklace, $30, add just the right subtlety for jewelry.

Look of the Week: Bold Prints

Classic Gucci Shirtdress Perfect for Spring

We fell in love with the classic butterfly print and bold orange on this classic shirtdress from Gucci, size 42, $95.  With a casual feel it can be dressed up or down with a change of accessories.

For a simple spring lunch date we like it cinched at the waist with this orange Ralph Lauren rope belt, $20.  But if you want to go more causal, wear it without.  Maybe even over a skinny jean and a flat sandal. 

For this look we dressed it up a bit with a beautiful patent leather bag from Oscar de la Renta, NWT, $795, in a nude so that the dress remains the statement piece.  

Add a stack of fun bracelets, a simple strand of beads and a great espadrille and you're ready to go.  Pellini Milano bracelets, $42.50.  Beaded necklace, $65.  Michael Kors platform sandals, size 9, $75. 


Look of the Week: Spring Break Essentials

Pack Your Suitcase with this Easy Look

With Mother Nature finally deciding to bring us snow this week, we are even more than ready to bring on spring break.  How many more days? But who's counting?

This week's look is ready to go straight into your suitcase. What better than a pair of crisp white jeans paired with a fun ikat print peasant top?  Seven jeans, size 28, $45.  Patterson J. Kincaid blouse, size M, $65.

We've paired it with linen Christian Louboutin slides, size 35.5, $115, that are so on-trend for spring.  

It's spring break, so don't be afraid to be bold with color and pattern.  We've  gone a little whimsical with the playful stripes on this D&G bag, NWT, $795, and stacked as many bangles, $35-$48, as we could on our arms.  Layered necklace, $90.

Happy travels!  

Patterson J. Kincaid blouse, size M, $65.

Look of the Week: It's Almost Spring!

Stylist Annie Peck is Back with Some Great Transitional Pieces to Get Us Through the Last Days of Winter

With the lovely weather we're having I was inspired this month with transitional pieces to take you from winter to spring . . . and back to winter if we need to!  

Try a bare leg with no hose and cotton layers to keep you warm, yet removable if the temperatures rise.  

Long sleeve t-shirts and classic mini skirts are great staples to work into the rotation this time of season. 

Cheers,

Annie


A NOT-SO-BASIC T AND JEANS

For a simple look without all the layers here is this great look of skinny jeans and a unique T.  This peplum orange top from Phillip Lim is a simple t-shirt material, but elevated with the peplum style.  You can have some fun with the shoes since the rest of the outfit is crisp and clean.

Phillip Lim Top, size 2, originally $75 now $42.50.  Beaded necklace, originally $35 now $26.25.  Chanel purse, originally $895 now $671.25.  Burberry embellished flats, size 37, $95. Braided bracelet, originally $35 now $26.25.

CLASSIC MINI SKIRT AND FLATS

A discrete mini skirt is such an easy base to throw colors with.  The trend now is not to wear hose and since the weather is warmer this will be a perfect look. The jacket is optional both for dress up and warm!

It's a safe bet to wear flat shoes or flat boots with a miniskirt – so then it won't appear too short.

Brunello Cucinelli blouse, size XS, $85.  Floral cashmere scarf, originally $65 now $32.50.  St. Pierre leather mini skirt, size S, originally $45 now $22.50.  Bottega Venetta green handbag, SOLD.   Feraggamo flats, size 7, $85.  Marc by Marc Jacobs jacket, size S, $65. 


LACE IS EVERYWHERE THIS SPRING

Lace is really in right now and so now is the time to really have fun with it! Mix metal tones in to add a little more edge.

Adrianna Pappel lace dress, size 8, originally $75 now $37.50.  Jil Sander pumps, size 39, $95.  Furla handbag, $80.


statement blouse speaks for itself

This Hermes blouse speaks for itself and is very hard to come by – it's eclectic and beautiful! All you need is a simple pair of jeans and a fun shoe! Tuck it in or leave it untucked and flowy.

Hermes blouse, size 38, originally $325 now $243.75. AG charcoal skinny jean, size 28, originally $45 now $22.50.  Manolo Blahnik sling backs, size 38, originally $75 now $37.50.  Coach etched bangle, $60.  Sterling silver necklace with amber pendant, $45.


COZY COTTON SWEATERS, NO TIGHTS

This is a great transitional outfit that takes your cotton and cozy sweaters and pears them with a skirt and booty… Only this time without tights. I recommend wearing your favorite white v-neck tee underneath, just in case you do get too warm by the end of the day!

Ella Moss sweater, size S, SOLD.  Chanel skirt, size 38, originally $295 now $221.25.  Cipriani wide brown belt, was $45 now $33.75.  Coach handbag, $65.  Chanel booties, size 37.5, $425.  Vintage gold chain dangle earring, were $35 now $17.50.

Look of the Week: Bold Color

Don't Be Afraid to Mix Pattern + Color

The great pink color of this classic pencil skirt from Chanel inspired us this week for Valentine's Day. Chanel skirt, size 48, $225. 

For a bold look don't be afraid to pair a bright color with a bold pattern.  We love how neutral this printed car coat from Johnston and Murphy can look draped over a beaded top for a romantic night out. Johnston and Murphy car coat, size XL, was $95 now $71.25.  Adrianna Papell beaded top, size 14, was $45 now $22.50.  

This sleek knee-high, pull-on boot from Barneys keeps the look polished, but not too over-the-top dressy. Barneys boots, size 40, $65.

We let the beading of the top make its own statement and have paired it with a couple great cuffs to finish off this look.  

Choose one, or even better, wear one on each arm.  Black resin studded cuff, was $65 now $48.75.  Gold and black stretch cuff, was $75 now $56.25.  

And for all your necessities for the evening try this sleek clutch from Judith Leiber.  Judith Leiber clutch, $175. 

Look of the Week: One Jacket Two Ways

Dress This Luxe Velvet Jacket Up or Down

And for a night on the town?  Layer this great jacket over a black top and little black skirt with a fun ruffle.  

Armani short-sleeved ribbed top, size 8, originally $65 now $32.50. Lela Rose black silk blend skirt, size 6, was $95 now $71.25.

Add a fabulous pair of pony hair bootie heels, a statement necklace and a simple clutch and you are ready to make some great memories.

 Zoraide ponyhair booties, size 37.5, $95.  DVF black clutch with gold hardware, was $75 now $37.50.  Long resin chain link necklace, $75.

We love this Ralph Lauren velvet jacket as we hang onto winter for just a little bit longer.  This week's look shows you just how versatile a piece like this can be -- dress it up or down as a classic staple in your closet. Ralph Lauren jacket, size 6, was $75 now $56.25.

Velvet doesn't have to always be dressy.  For a polished daytime look wear it with a pair of jeans and a classic button down shirt and layers of pearls. 

DL1961 jeans, size 28, $40.  Etro blouse, size 38, $85. Gray Tahatian pearl necklaces, were $40 each now $30.

A classic pair of ballet flats and Chanel bag finish the look.  Chanel patent leather pumps, size 37.5, $275.  Chanel wool quilted shoulder bag, $975.
