WATCH Me IF You Can?

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on June 20, 2011 by amstylearchitect

WATCHES are BACK!  They’re BACK in a BIG way…

When I was younger my mother always made sure I had a watch for special ‘going out’ occasions like church on Sundays but as I got older wearing a watch just sort of fell off my Style Radar… My cellphone is now my permanent time keeper.Recently I began to consider getting back into the traditional TIMEPIECE game…

Here are a few I’d like to tell time with:

Michael Kors has some really great options like these  Women’s Chronograph Acrylic Tortoise Shell and Marble-esque Bracelet watches $195 at shopstyle.com and Macy’s

I’m also LOVING  the Michael KORS  BEL AIR Two Tone Acrylic and ROSE GOLD bands so FRESH for SUMMER White  is nice but can get dirty easily a clear band is GENIUS!!!

$195 Shopbop.com and $225 Michael Kors.com

Perhaps you’re thinking It’s officially SUMMER now and I want something that POPS on my wrist, right? If that’s the case you should be considering this Animal Toy Watch at Neiman Marcus or Bloomingdales $295, It’s a great timepiece that can add PIZAZZ  to your outfit.:

If you’re looking for a little more HARDWARE but still want  a CLEAN face… look no further I really like this Marc by Marc Jacobs chronograph MOLLY watch. The Hardware is BOLD but not overpowering or offensive. I think the Black and Golden is very versatile and translates with many outfits:

Neiman Marcus $225

Captivating Caged Toes…

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on June 7, 2011 by amstylearchitect

Let’s be honest ladies our TOES are just not one of those body parts that always look dynamic. As the weather gets warmer and our toes make their debut onto the hot streets we want them to be as sexy as they can be… Right? Just as dress silhouettes change so do the silhouettes of our shoes. Say hello to the CAGED SANDAL, sounds threatening doesn’t it?  Well don’t be afraid, be excited to add a new shoe style to your SANDAL REPERTOIRE…

Here are a few Caged Sandal Options that I find absolutely CAPTIVATING  to CAGE your TOES…

First up are these Diane Von Fustenberg ENVY CAGED SANDALS which can be worn as an everyday neutral adding a slightly edgy flair to a boring summer suit.  $208.90 Nordstrom or Shopstyle.com

How about trying two trends at once. Don’t be scared you can do it. I am totally digging these COLIN STUART CAGED ANIMAL PRINT STUDDED SANDALS at Victoria’s Secrets… a $59.99 bargain. They come in Camouflage, Leopard, Bone, or Black.

Lastly, I am DROOLING over these Alejandro Ingelmo  WATERSNAKE CAGE BOOTIE SANDALS. Ladies! Can’t you just see your Toes in these with a Fresh Pedi?!?! Or is it just me?

Come On, these are SCORCHING HOTNESS…Obviously there is always a price for HOTNESS and the price of this heat will burn $559 in your pocket but you will set the streets on fire when you walk out in these! You may even need to call the fire department. stylefind.com or luisaviaroma.com

Just BAG It!!!

Posted in Uncategorized on June 3, 2011 by amstylearchitect

Have you been dragging around the same dreary winter sac for the past few months but you’re ready to shed some LIGHT on your arm candy? Here are a few options to consider:

Raf Simons for Jil Sander Market Bags are just the POP of color you need to brighten and lighten your look… For those of you ladies that need that extra room this bag is a great option. It has two top handles, a detachable navy shoulder strap and an internal pouch pocket.  net-a-porter.com  Granted it’s tad pricey at $895 but it’s an investment, right? wink, wink…

If you’re a FLOWER LADY perhaps you should consider the Petunia satchel  from Dooney & Bourke $198.  I do love the shape….

Another GREAT OPTION  is this Classic Q Lil Ukita Marc by Marc Jacobs bag , the price point is still manageable at $398…it also comes in a canary yellow…

Think Bright. Think Light . Just Bag It. Happy Shopping…
