The holiday season is quickly approaching – which means there will be parties, work-functions, family gatherings and charity events among other things to attend. Rather than stress out at the last-minute for the perfect outfit to wear, it is wise to invest in a couple of “go-to” basic dresses that can get you through the season looking chic and on trend, without breaking the bank.
Blaque Label is the perfect solution to the Holiday dress dilemma. Inspired by Parisian fashion, Blaque Label has become a favorite label for Naomi Watts (who loves the kimono sleeved dress) and Kourtney Kardashian (who wore a gorgeous french blue strapless dress to the Teen Choice awards featuring a unique high-low hem and chiffon draping). Made of 100 percent silk, Blaque Label’s fits are sure to flatter most figures and their cuts rival brands twice the price.
Prices range from $118.00-$148.00. Available at Chelsea Brentwood 11704 Barrington Court, Los Angeles, Ca 90049 (310)471-4770 www.chelseabrentwood.com.
Spring is the perfect time to let your wild side shine with color and prints. The warm weather evokes the allure of the outdoors and nature as we tend to spend more of our time in the sun.
Geometric and tribal prints were a huge element at the 2011 Spring runway shows where each designer put their own spin on the trend.
Get the “Out of Africa” look with a tribal print in combination with khaki or army-green pieces. To achieve a more mod look stick with bold primary colors and geometric prints. Either way…you’ll look stylish and it just might remind you to add that African safari you’ve always dreamed of to your bucket list.
