Pick Three: Elie Saab

Pick Three: Elie Saab

When I think of Elie Saab I often remember my favorite red carpet looks, it’s a label that speaks to an elevated sort of elegance. Taking classic silhouettes and styles and doing them well, in lush fabrics and with a dash of je ne sais quoi, Elie Saab is the epitome of class. Take a few basic colors and add in a few more interesting shades to the palette is what I love most about it.

#1

LK6 Belt;
Yes, of course I love the color, but it’s something else about this belt that could possibly be one of those accessories that can transform any outfit. It’s not an average belt by any means, and weather it holds your pants or skirt up isn’t the question. I’m infinitely more interested in how many outfits I can create with this belt as the focal point. .
Available at Boutique1.com for $205.00.

#2

Wide Leg Trousers;
They’re super wide-legged pants but it’s not enough that they’re a pair of trousers, I love that they sort of deceptively look like a skirt. I love the classic silhouette that beckons back to the 70s, I totally want to wrap my hair in a scarf and slip on a paisley top with over-sized sunglasses for the full effect..
Available at Boutique1.com for $1,444.00.

#3

Peep-toe Slingbacks – Olive;
I love the stacked heel inter-weaved with the olive leather suede. I’m not usually a fan of olive but this color grows on me every time I look at these pumps. The elements of wood grounds these slingbacks in a sort of natural simplicity.
Available at Boutique1.com for $572.00.

Pick Three: Etro

Pick Three: Etro
It’s no wonder Etro started out as a textile house in the sixties, their use of prints and color is exactly what a color junkie like me lives for. The Italian family business now creates some of the most stunning accessories and ready to wear pieces with a la vie boheme sort of aesthetic. Etro is a label developed around on trend pieces that employ facets of vibrant color, it’s intense and bold. These picks speak to all of the ways that Etro has perfected its fashion perspective, some have a beauty that you notice immediately, others require a little time for their beauty to really sink in.

#1

Saffron Wide Leg Pants;
I’m totally on board for the high-waisted wide-leg trend, but I hate getting bogged down with blacks and grays and other mundane pant colors. I’ve never loved wide leg pants more and the saffron color is so rich and vibrant I’m bewitched.
Available at ShopBop.com for $1,000.00.

#2

Paisley and Spot Print Scarf;
I’m obsessed with scarves, my collection borders on obscene, and half the time I wear them around the house just to feel like I’m one of the characters on Mad Men. This scarf shows off the intricacy that Etro has perfected for over forty years.
Available at FarFetch.com for $533.00.

#3

Hammered Gold Plated Cuff;
It’s industrial and chunky, I love the way that they stack. This piece single handedly proves that Etro has mastered its relatively new foray into jewelry. It would be cool to wear this cuff on bare arms or on top of a long sleeved chiffon blouse.
Available at Net-a-Porter.com for $375.00.

Coveted Deeply

Coveted Deeply: 27.03.11

[1] I’m not a fan of leopard print anything, but the vintage appeal of this swimsuit makes it something I’ve fallen in love with unexpectedly. The structured sweetheart neckline and black elastic belt at the waist of this Lanvin leopard suit is (dare I utter these words when referencing leopard print) — sexy.

[2] Nothing says spring quite like tulips and while taking care of these bulbs when gardening can take quite a bit of work this little tulip usb cluster is an attractive tech-savvy gadget, great for plugging in my mouse, digital camera, external drive, and BlackBerry, along with anything else I need to plug in (see #4).

[3] I have a borderline obsessive attraction to rings, and my obsession with turquoise has past the ‘boderline’ with no hope or want of return. I especially love cameo rings so this Tagliamonte – 18 karat gold ring is at the top of my lust list. The pop of turquoise in the etched mother of pearl is truly extraordinary.

[4] I’m going gaga for spring flowers and Cherry Blossoms are kind of kismet appreciation for nature, after everything that’s happening in Japan. This Cherry Blossom Flip Camera is so cute, compact and a totally covet-worthy. It’s super girly, but for some reason I don’t mind, because I seriously love Cherry Blossoms.

[5] Wide leg pants are back and better than ever, and curvy girls like me can now find solace in cloaking our hips in these apricot wide leg trousers. What makes these pants so appealing is that they aren’t black, brown or navy, the kind of burnt orange, apricot hue of these trousers makes them work so much better than any neutral ever could. I just want them.
