This Skirt

How fabulous is this skirt?  From the full skater style to the bold colors and fun pattern it's a stunner!  This skirt makes such a statement I paired it with a neutral, feminine blouse, black shoes and clutch that would let the skirt be the focus of the outfit and not compete for attention.  I kept the jewelry simple too with an arm stack of thin bangles with turquoise detail and stud earrings.  




What I'm Wearing ~
Skirt: Flying Tomato via Encore (Similar here)
Blouse: Tulle via Encore (Long sleeve version here)
Clutch: BCBGeneration via Encore (Love this one too!)
Lace Up Cage Booties: BCBGeneration via T.J.Maxx (These are fab!)





This skirt looks good coming and going!




Today's the day!!  Join me at Encore in beautiful downtown Athens from 5:00 - 9:00pm for the latest in fall fashions (including the fabulous outfit above), stunning Stella & Dot jewelry and accessories, sips and sweet treats from The Sweet Trend and styling by me!  A portion of the Encore proceeds go directly to University of Georgia Relay for Life.  See you at 186 East Clayton Street, Athens, Georgia 30601!

Snake and Leather

Snake and leather ~ what a combo, right?  I love how it's edgy without being over the top.  And I've never in my life put on a pair of pants I like more.  These fit and feel amazing and the vertical pattern makes my legs appear longer and thinner than they actually are (but that's our little secret!).  These pants have been added to my fall wish list...along with the top in Monday's post and the jacket in last Friday's.  Oh Encore, how I love your fall fashions!!




What I'm Wearing ~
Snake Print Jeans: 7 For All Mankind via Encore
Drapey Top With a Faux Leather Back: Tulle via Encore (Crushing on this faux leather tee!)
Black Lace-up Cage Booties: BCBGeneration via T.J.Maxx (These are fab and are on SALE!)
Black Clutch: Urban Expressions via Encore (Similar)
Sunnies: Coach



I love all the different textures!









Are you loving the fall fashions from Encore I've shared with you in the past few posts as much as I am?  Well, there are even more fabulous fall clothes where these came from!  Join me THIS Friday, September 19th from 5:00pm to 9:00pm at Encore for a Sip & Shop and Stella & Dot Trunk Show!  You will have the chance to try on all the great clothes Encore has to offer and get styled by me!  Plus I'm hosting a Stella & Dot Trunk Show at the event and I will show you how to style the stunning jewelry with Encore's fashions.  When you leave you will be all set for fall!!

Audrey and Taylor

When I went into Encore  last week to style outfits for my current series of blog posts I was instantly drawn to this top.  It's a very on-trend dressy sweatshirt, the Swiss-dot and quilted detail are to die for and it reminds me of something Audrey Hepburn or Taylor Swift would wear.  You could say it's a win, win, win!  Oh, and it's super comfortable.  Another win.  I'll be adding it to my fall wardrobe for sure!!




What I'm Wearing ~
Quilted sweatshirt with leather and swiss-dot detail: C Luce via Encore (Similar here)
Black pointe leggings with faux leather detail (SO comfortable!): I <3 Tyler Madison via Encore (Similar here)
Quilted bag with chain strap: Urban Expressions via Encore (Obsessed with this one)
Black lace up cage booties: BCBGeneration via T.J.Maxx (Love these and they are on SALE!)
Gold and black earrings: Encore (Similar and gorgeous!)





I love the detail of this sweatshirt! Quilting, faux leather and swiss-dot lace!

Clinton Kelly's Effortless Table

You all know of my love for Clinton Kelly and all things Clinton Kelly.  I own and have read all of his books, watched every episode of What Not To Wear and am a regular viewer of The Chew.  I also got to meet him last November when he was here in Atlanta for a Macy's fashion event (see that post here - best night ever!).  So when I heard that Clinton was coming out with a line of dinnerwear exclusively available at Macy's I couldn't wait to check it out.  Well, the wait it over... Clinton Kelly's Effortless Table is finally here and it's freakin' fabulous ~ it was designed by Clinton after all!!


Spring Fever

Buddha's Secret

Lucky In Love

Enchanted Garden

Birds & Bees

Prince Charming ~ My favorite!

Mix and match these fabulous plates for an interesting, fun, effortlessly creative table!

How fun are these colorful mugs in bold patterns?  You all know how much I love pattern mixing and color so these are right up my alley!!


To celebrate the launch of Clinton's new dinnerware line, today macys.com will be featuring Effortless Table at special pricing. Regularly a 4-piece place setting goes for $72 but will be on sale for $49.99 and a set of six salad/dessert plates or mugs will be on sale for $29.99, regularly priced at $60!!!  Shopping from the comfort of your home ~ how freakin' fabulous is that?!

Boho-Glam

I don't "do" traditional boho well.  I can't fully embrace it for myself even though I love the look on other girls!  I always end up glamming boho up a bit like I did here.  By adding leopard heels (that have been on constant repeat lately), blingy/fabulous chandelier earrings and a statement bag I took a dress that's slightly out of my comfort zone and made it more me and my version of boho...Boho-Glam.  And that's what fashion is all about, isn't it?  Creating your own style?




What I'm Wearing ~
Dress: American Thread | Similar
Shoes: Steve Madden (I should have bought them in every color - I wear them all the time!)
Bag: Louis Vuitton Trocadero (my bag is via Agora Vintage)
Earrings: Stella & Dot



These are my favorite earrings right now.  I love the orange and pink color combo plus the fact that they convert from chandeliers to studs!!








How do you take something that's out of your comfort zone and make it your style?

P.S. I just became an Independent Stella & Dot Stylist!  I fell in love with Stella & Dot a few months ago and becoming a stylist just seemed like the natural thing to do!  I'm so excited!!  You can check out my brand new online boutique HERE!!
