Emmy Awards Best Dressed

Ladies in Blue

Looks like I was on to something with the blue prediction! January Jones stepped out onto the red carpet and looked gorgeous wearing a colbolt blue Atelier Versace gown. Lea Michelle was also among the ladies in blue. She rocked a navy strapless ruffle front gown by Oscar de la Renta . Jane Krakowski, Mary Hart and Jayma Mays were also wearing this years most popular red carpet color!

Leathers to Lust For

I have a weakness for luscious leathers that are soft and worn in. These handbags by Le'Bulga look like the perfect finishing touch to any outfit this fall.

Hues of Blues

It’s that time again! One of the biggest nights for award shows, it’s a time for the most recognizable stars in show biz to look perfectly glamorous for us to ohhhh and ahhhhh over what they are wearing. It is my prediction that blue will be the new black on the red carpet of the 62nd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards. This dramatic color is smoothing and mesmerizing. Hues of blue can lift and lighten ones appearance and I have a good feeling that it will be worn in navy, midnight blue, azure and aquamarine. Blue is a universally flattering color and is very versatile color for all skin tones and all ages. Blue looks fresh in flowing fabrics and on structured dresses as seen in the pictures above.
Blue was a very prominent on the fall 2010 and resort 2011 runways for designers like Ellie Saab, Jenny Packham, Reem Acra, Marchesa and Carolina Herrera. Because of their red carpet presence and I have a good feeling we might be seeing a lot of blue this year…be sure to tune in for the red carpet pre shows to see if I’m on to something.

Olivia Palermo's Capsule Collection

I recently gave into watching an episode of The City - which quickly turned into watching the marathon of The City. I have to admit I formed a penchant for Ms. Palermo. There is no denying the Elle accessories editor is the most fashionable villain on the show but now I somehow find myself channeling her when getting ready for work in the morning! What’s that about? Olivia is best known for having a trained eye when it comes to jewelry designers. Recently, she has teamed up with designer Roberta Freymann to create a capsule collection of gorgeous bejeweled statement bib necklaces. The pieces are strikingly beautiful - glass beads, semi-precious stones and sequins are sewn onto grosgrain fabric. Each so carefully detailed, it deserves closer inspection. Bib necklaces are great because they make the most simple outfits extraordinary. The statement piece lends a whimsical element to any casual outfit and are moderately priced - ranging from $175 to $500. Shop them at Matches Fashion.com

Prints Charming

I have been infatuated with this season’s most undoubtedly funky trend and I just can’t get enough! Don’t get me wrong, denim has always been my go to but I can’t help but get excited when I see someone sporting printed pantaloons. Not a far cry from the harem pant, I’m obsessed because they almost cross the border into loungewear but are a fun way to jazz up any look! Be sure to wear a slim fitting shirt and maybe add a cropped jacket or blazer for contrast. When shopping for the perfect pair, you want a light weight fabric that is relaxed at the hips and tapered down to the ankle. Don’t be shy when choosing a pattern either, the bolder the better – stripes, graphic, floral and abstract prints are my personal favorites!
Am I onto something or do you hear MC Hammer calling me for his pants back?
