‘Tis the season for cold weather accessories, & they always make for a great gift for the holidays. However, if you’re looking to mix up your outerwear look, but love your classic coat, changing up your hat, scarf, & gloves will do the trick! I’m a big fan of scarves, wearing them with my coats & coordinating them with my tunic sweaters & other essentials.
While I’m still keeping an eye on all things Black Friday still going on & the upcoming Cyber Monday deals, I’ve been noticing that red suede ankle booties. Of course these aren’t a new item in the world of footwear, but it seems like every website that I’m clicking through has a pair & I love the idea of an unexpected pop of color on your feet with any layered heavy knit look & some neutral outerwear.
When it came time to update a Splurge or Save? post, I couldn’t help but wonder how I’d recommend my readers to wear these shoes, when I know I’d be looking for a more stiletto-like heel with some more feminine details. However, mixing this Western-inspired accessory is actually quite easy, when you consider it with skinny jeans or leggings, paired with plaids, polka dots, mini florals, & vintage lacey pieces.
If you’re addicted to fashion & can’t stop talking about styling (just like me), not only are you a Style Darling, but you will LOVE the next (almost) six minutes of this video taken from a segment on ABC’s Nightline, which discusses the work of stylist Brad Goreski, as well as how stars like Jessica Alba, Lady Gaga, & Mila Kunis have become fashion icons during their red carpet appearances. In addition, the video talks about the empire that Brad’s former boss, Rachel Zoe, has built, not only as a stylist who charges upwards of $10,000/day, but as a designer for QVC & her high-end collection for Neiman Marcus. Who do you like better- Brad or Rachel? Do you watch It’s A Brad, Brad World & The Rachel Zoe Project?
Starting September 6th, Oscar-Grammy-winner Jennifer Hudson will be debuting her very first eponymous collection for QVC, featuring elegant dresses, flowy tops, slimming leggings, & jackets. Courtesy of In Style, Style Darling is sharing a sneak peek at the collection that’s priced under $170. The American Idol alum told the magazine, “I wanted to focus on being comfortable, but being cute at the same time. I was [inspired by] Michael Kors, because I feel that he focuses on the ‘real woman,’ you know? Every curve.“
The actress / singer is definitely keeping busy, launching this line, while also joining the cast of Smash for its second season this fall. Take a look at the collection & mark your calendar’s for the line’s QVC debut! Happy Styling!
