MSGM boucle flared skirt
Good morning, Everyone! I hope you're all enjoying your week so far! I am so excited to partner with Ferragamo yet again ( if you read my blog on regular basis, you may remember our collaboration from last year ) to style a pair of sunglasses from their SS 2015 collection. Though it was definitely not an easy choice to make, for there are so many wonderful colors to choose from, I went with a pair of oversized round frames in the most beautiful shade of red. Aside from the fact that red happens to be one of my favorite colors, I love the striking look red creates, paired with my beloved white and black palette! And sure, I've ventured into color a bit lately, yet I still find myself gravitating towards a more monochromatic and calmer color palette, which works so well when you add a single bright accessory, such as a pair of red shades, for example:)

For today's look, I chose to pair my new Ferragamo sunglasses with a classic, black, white and red color combination, adding a bag in a similar shade to make red the focal point of this look. Yet, I recently wore them with an all white ensemble as well as a slightly nautical inspired navy-heavy outfit and absolutely loved they way they completed each look. I suppose what I am trying to say here  is that I found yet another one of those versatile accessories I always look for, so I hope you don't mind seeing quite a bit of them on this blog in the future:)

VivaLuxury Mejuri Jewelry Collection, Mejuri hite Velvet Collection, The Girl With A pearl
They say every great dream begins with a dreamer... Those of you who've been with me from the very beginning, probably know that aside from starting VivaLuxury, my greatest dream in life was to design a jewelry collection. Well, I can hardly believe it but my dream has come true and it is with great joy I am excited to unveil my Capsule Collection for Mejuri jewelry. 

My relationship with Mejuri began over year ago with a short little email. Of course, at that time I couldn't possibly imagine what a profound effect an email could have on my life. At that time, all I knew was that I felt an immediate connection to Mejuri jewelry and the company esthetic in general. Over time, as our relationship progressed, we've come to realize that not only was our esthetic incredibly similar, we also shared a passion for jewelry and design and so, we began thinking about collaborating in a more profound way and a capsule collection just felt like a great pace to start.

When I began thinking about what I wanted this collection to be, I realized that for me, design is incredibly personal. And so, I felt it was very important to create a collection that truly reflected my personality, style and esthetic. In the end, the idea that inspired this collection the most, was a certain duality that is inherent in my personal style. On one hand, I love elegance and femininity, on the other, I am equally attracted to sharp, clean and slightly edgy silhouettes. To capture these seemingly opposite aspects of my sartorial personality, I decided to combine classically elegant pearls with modern, edgy, geometric settings. Something else that was incredibly important to me when it came to this collection was quality. Both Mejuri and I believe in the importance of combining unique and creative deigns with lasting materials, which is why all of the pieces in this collection are made from precious materials like vermeil on sterling silver, fresh water cultured pearls and cubic zirconia stones.

We spent the next few months working closely together to design a unique and creative collection, the hardest part of which was not being able to share every little detail with you guys:) The end result was a collection of 7 pieces designed to be worn layered or separately, day or night.

The experience of working with Mejuri on this collection was absolutely incredible and the feeling of seeing your ides come to life just indescribable! Honestly, I still have to pinch myself overtime I look at the collection because I am so happy with the way it turned out. My only hope is that you guys love it as much as I do... :)

BANANA REPUBLIC Monogram poplin shirtdress

I've always been a fan of shirtdresses. There is a certain kind of ease and nonchalant coolness about them. Comfortable and stylish, to me, shirts dresses are a must-have Summer staple to wear day or night. Found this particular one on a recent trip to Banana Republic and fell in love with it the moment I saw it! Aside from the fact that I cannot resist a dress with pockets no matter how hard I try, this one has quite a bit of those special details I always look for. I mean how cute are those ruffle sleeves with tie details! I also love the unexpected color! Most shirtdresses I came across are white. Now, don't get me wrong, I love white dresses but in this particular case, I feel black makes this dress just a tad cooler and edgier, and possibly more appropriate for night:) What do you guys think?

ALL SAINTS Hace trench coat

I've been practically living in this trench coat lately trying to stay warm in LA's cooler temperatures. Honestly, I don't know what it is lately, but the weather just can't seem to make up it's mind. Hot and sunny one day, doom and gloom the next. Normally, I would just reach for a sweater or a leather jacket when it gets like this, but lately, I've become a huge fan of a trench coat, for it's definitely a cozier, and in many ways warmer option. 

Love this particular one I found at All Saints because of the slightly slouchier, softer silhouette. You know how much I love versatility, and this one works with just about anything from dresses, to jeans and denim cutoffs. I've even warn it for cocktails the other day pairing it with a fitted pencil skirt and a pair of heels and loved the way it looked! And when you find something that works day and night and looks good with essentially everything in your closet, you know it's a keeper:)

H&M jumpsuit

This pretty terracotta-colored jumpsuit takes comfort to a whole new level! If I could spend the rest of summer wearing just the one thing, this would be it! Aside from comfort, color and overall fit, what I love about this one is the fact that it virtually doesn't wrinkle. Sure it sounds a bit mundane, I mean who cares about a few wrinkles, and yet... I do:) There were so many times I got into my car in the morning, looking completely presentable, and arrived to an important meeting looking like a wrinkled mess! But in this jumpsuit I can sit, slouch or even twist myself into a pretzel if I wanted to without being afraid of those pesky little wrinkles! And in my book, that is always a good thing:)!

EXPRESS printed chiffon trapeze dress

As you can see, I remain fully committed to wearing every fun and flirty frock imaginable :) This particular printed wonder from EXPRESS is my current favorite thanks to the totally twirl-worthy  silhouette and colorful print! Basically, it's a perfect little summer mini dress. I especially love the fact that you can dress it up with a pair of heels like I did in today's post since I was going out for drinks with my girls or down, with a pair of cute flats and a roomy tote. But of course those are just a few examples, really the possibilities are endless... The other day I had it on with a leather jacket and slouchy boots and absolutely loved the way it looked! 

Have a feeling it's going to be one of those pieces you're going to be seeing again and again! You know how I get when I find something I really like:) Hope you don't mind...
