Last week, Michael Kors and Versace announced that Michael Kors Holdings will be purchasing Versace for $2.1 billion and immediately the industry was abuzz. Some questioned whether it was the right move for Michael Kors or for Versace.
While its uncertain what the future holds for this acquisition, it is definitely one to watch for many reasons. Firstly, no other American fashion goods conglomerate has acquired such a storied European brand. Secondly, this could be the start of the first American luxury goods conglomerate that is on par with giants LVMH and Kering.

It’s Monday morning and I’m sitting at my desk at work sad that the weekend is over. But, I’m so happy that I got to bust out my brand new Chanel. Because who doesn’t need a little Chanel in their life?
For dinner with friends this weekend, I decided to stick with the them of Black & White with my gorgeous new Chanel bag and team it with an all black outfit with a subtle touch of white. And, I found the perfect top from Tobi. This super cute high neck tank with white stripes down the side. It was like this top and this purse were meant to be.
To break up the complete black and white, I paired the outfit with my new favorite Stuart Weitzman grey Hijinx Sandals and a bold berry lip from Kat Von D.
I got lots of compliments on my outfit and lots of oohs and aahhs over my new Chanel. As is to be expected. I mean, come on, it’s Chanel.

I have a confession: I love shoes. Like, a lot. I am willing to spend more money on shoes than on anything else. And, I think it’s because no matter what type of outfit I’m wearing, the shoes always complete it. At the moment, I’m obsessed with espadrilles. They’re the perfect shoe for summertime, especially summer trips when you’re walking around all day and need comfortable, yet stylish shoes.
As I was browsing some spring sales this past weekend, I came across the perfect pair in the Barneys Warehouse sale, at a steal of a price!! These gorgeous Aquazurra Belgravia Espadrilles are now mine and I couldn’t be more excited!! Now, knowing that I have a 3 week Europe trip around the corner, I may have started looking up some other espadrilles for the trip, because a girl always needs options for different outfits, right? Take a look below at the ones I’m currently coveting, including the new addition to my wardrobe.

I remember when I was a teenager, I was playing around in my mother’s closet and saw some bodysuits that she kept from the early ’90s. I proceeded to make fun of her and laugh about how she still had something in her closet that was so outdated. She just smiled a knowing smile that I didn’t understand at the time, but now I do.
Because, I am now obsessed with bodysuits. Like this amazing ribbed lace up bodysuit from Tobi. It was perfect for this spring afternoon outfit paired with some high-waisted jeans (another 90’s fashion revival), one of my favorite jackets from Zara and some cute booties. Love it!
Booties: Treasure & Bond
It’s been a month since spring has sprung, but this past weekend in So Cal, with temps rising to the 80s, it felt more like Summer. Now, I know the old adage is that you can’t wear white until Memorial Day. But, I have my own rule: if it feels like it’s June outside, then wear your whites, and wear them proudly.
For Sunday brunch, I went with this super cute white ribbed dress from Tobi.com. It was perfect because it kept me cool while out in the heat. I decided to keep going with the white theme and paired it with my white Chloe Mini Marcie, some beige snakeskin Steve Madden gladiators, and my House of Harlow sunburst necklace.
And while the weather may all of a sudden cool down this week, which it’s prone to do, I love that I was able to get a taste of summer, which is just around the corner!

Spring is here! They say springtime represents new life, a renaissance of sorts. I see it as an opportunity to revamp our closets and breathe new life into our daily wardrobe. A time to put away our sweaters, coats, leggings and boots in the dark colors of winter and re-emerge in the flirty dresses, tops, tanks and sandals in the warm colors of Spring. Particularly, the pastel colors that herald the start of this new season.
I teamed up with Farfetch to bring you my inspiration for springtime. I put together a wishlist/inspiration board that represents how I see myself in these coming months.Each piece is not only a spring silhouette – think crop tops, vests, and dresses – but also is in a soft pastel color that matches the warm weather that Spring brings us.
I am most of all obsessed with the Alexander McQueen off the shoulder mini dress. Nothing says Spring like a ruffly mini dress in a warm cloud blue that shows off a little shoulder and a little leg.
Take a look at my wishlist below and be inspired to revamp your own wardrobe with some pieces that evoke the warmth and renaissance that Spring brings!
