Going Vogue. Living Vogue. Being Vogue.

As a 16 year old living outside of Washington, D.C., I am eager to express myself in a world of emerging fashion and conservative style. “Over the years I have learned that what is important in a dress is the woman who is wearing it.” – Yves Saint Laurent

Closet Essentials

Style essentials are the building blocks of a solid and functional style–they are classic pieces and trend-proof garments. These essentials are staples that are both basic and versatile. Here is a list of what I think solidifies a wardrobe. 1. The Little Black Dress feminine, yet classy. it can be worn to virtually any occasion, although, the best part about the LBD: with the addition of different accessorite, it can look like an entirely new and different outfit.

2. Camel Trench Coat i have always found that neutral hues are the foundation of creating a classic wardrobe. this wear-with-all piece can be worn from day to night. it will always look stylish, yet never fall out of style.

3. Straight Leg Dark Wash Denim dark navy jeans go with absolutely everything. for a day look wear it with a cami, cardigan, and flats. for a night look wear pumps, fancy top, and a blazer.

4. White Blouse there is nothing more versatile as a white button down blouse; however, it is essential that it fits properly. When worn  in the workplace, it can give you a polished professional look, yet it can also be paired down by rolling up the sleeves and throwing it over a pair of skinnies.

5. Opaque Black Tights the most classic of accessories that can easily be thrown under your favorite frock to totally transform the look, taking it to an entirely different level.

6. Timeless Cardigan in a fabric like cashmere or wool, the timeless cardigan will wear perfect over everything from a simple tank to the aforementioned blouse. modernize it by investing in a cardigan with embellishments or gold buttons.

7. Black Pumps
one essential that is not to be skimped on. a nice pair of black pumps can be a sound investment–whether you wear them to work or out for a night on the town, a pair of black pumps will forever be a useful wardrobe staple.

8. Ballet Flats an item that every woman should own. whether you plan to sport them day-to-day, or simply wear them to take a break from stilettos, from age nine to ninety-nine, ballet flats are a definite staple for all females.

9. Walking Boots every great wardrobe has a quality pair of boots–they can be worn with jeans, skirts, and can even be used to pair down a dress (see Riding Boots)

10. Basic V-Neck Tee a v-neck tee, especially a white one, should be an absolute must in anybody’s closet–it can be easily dressed up or down, not to mention, it is simple to style and accessorize.

Best Dressed: 2012 Golden Globes

Sunday night was a great kickoff to the awards season as stars walked the red carpet at the Beverly Hilton. My favorite gown of the night – Charlize Theron’s Dior stunner! She looked absolutely fantastic in the pale pink daring number! George Clooney’s girlfriend also made a regal appearance in her stunning Valentino creation that included the brand’s signiture bow on the back!

Resort Trends 2012

I can not begin to tell you how excited I am for the Resort season. From pale yellows to hot pink –it is all about use of color! One thing I can not wait to get my hands on is a little black red dress! I’ve had my eye on a few from ASOS and I’m eager to make it a new wardrobe staple. Another thing I’m looking forward to — LACE! I’ve gotten really into lace this past fall/winter and I can’t wait to make it transition into my resort wardrobe! What are your thoughts on the new resort trends? One thing I’m not looking forward to — more color blocking — I am beginning to think that it has been a bit over done. What are your thoughts?

Best of 2011

Favorite Look

I can’t get enough of this look! Emma stone looked absolutely fantastic as she walked down the red carpet dressed in Lanvin from head to toe.

Trend Report

Lanvin. J.Crew. Prada. Prada. Sam Edelman. Christian Louboutin. Salvatore FerragamoSalvatore Ferragamo.

This is by far one of my favorite trends of the season. It leaves me reminiscent of Chanel chic. The trend can’t be ignored, as we’ve seen it from designers like Christian Louboutin to Sam Edelman on heels, to flats, to boots. This is one of the most classic, safe trends we’ve seen so far, so it’s worth splurging on those Ferragamo flats that will never go out of style! As long as Chanel is in style, so will this classic trend.

2011 VMAs: Best Dressed

On Sunday night many celebrities walked the black carpet as they arrived at the MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles. On the far left, a pregnant, glowing Beyonce stole the show in this orange Lanvin dress. I love the contrast of her large emerald ring against her vibrant dress. Zoe Salanda rocked her black, beaded Barbara Bui mini, while Victoria Justice looked very age appropriate in silver Thayer mini dress. Katie Holmes made an unexpected appearance, looking fabulous in her eye-catching Azzedine Alaia woven dress.
