Spring Trend Update 2014

Don't you just love it when you find the absolute perfect pair of shoes, the ones you've had your eye on for weeks, and not only does the store have them in your size but they're on sale? AND you have a one-time-only 30% off total purchase price coupon that you snagged online just as you left the house? I know, it doesn't happen often so when it does you had better be ready to strike fast. And, that said, you had also better be ready to fight to the finish for your shoes!

Fight? Not your normal afternoon-at-the-mall activity you say? Well, as I mentioned earlier I found my perfect pair of shoes. In my size. On sale. AND I had that 30% coupon just burning a hole in my wallet. But somewhere between the seating area and the checkout counter my shoebox got swapped! When I got to the counter to pay for the shoes, the box that the clerk opened contained a pair of sensible shoes. Sensible shoes in a size 10.5!! Where were my perfect size 7 bronze metallic Kate Spade cherry red slingbacks with adorable candy-striped heels? As I screamed in terror and disbelief, a woman beside me snatched her tissue lined shopping bag from the counter and hustled toward the store exit. There was something about the way she guarded that shopping bag while racing toward the door in her… sensible shoes!

"Stop! Shoe thief!" I yelled just before I launched myself across the store, snatching the bag right out of her hands before plowing into a display cabinet and sending Ferragamos flying in all directions. When the dust had cleared I was a little banged up but back in possession of my shoes. And the shoe thief? Apparently she switched boxes in a moment of complete insanity/shoe lust, convincing herself that a size 7 would definitely fit, especially if they were Kate Spade and were on sale!

Since spring is my absolute favorite time to go shopping, it didn't take long for my fight club memories to fade. This season, instead of sticking to one look you have several to choose from. Now, I'm not advocating every look for everybody — a true fashionista knows her limits. Case in point, my too-chic-for-words friend in Barcelona has decided her signature look for spring will be the edgy athletic-chic trend. I, however, cannot pull off this trend without looking like I forgot to go the gym, but on her it's great. My fave looks and pieces, which are surprisingly easy for fashionistas living in the real world, are below.

My everyday uniform: A-line skirt and wedge heels. While I absolutely adore Derek Lam's exquisite satin confection, the Boden USA counterpart is more in my spending range (and it has pockets!) We love Carlos Santana's snakeskin wedge or Ralph Lauren sweet espadrilles. (Tip: Don't let your top compete with the volume of your skirt.)

My Lazy-Day Ensemble
- Bermudas are back and better than ever. Pair them with a white tank and flops for shopping, traveling and just about anything else. You'll be very casual-chic.

It's All White: This is going to take some courage, but nothing beats an all-white ensemble. Try sassy jeans and great tank or pretty tee. Complete the look with embellished sandals. Splurge on a pair of gorgeous Gucci's or be able to eat for the rest of the month and take home these adorable metallic flats.

The Dress: There are so many styles to choose from — wrap style, classic sheath or retro shift, comfy maxi, flirty mini, solid, patterned or printed. You do need at least one fab dress this season. (Last one looks great with these Michael Kors wedges!)

Metallics: From bags and shoes to skirts and fun accessories, don't miss out on this trend. As for mixing metallics, it's kind of like red and pink or navy and black — do it at your own risk. Although, when it's done right, it's divine!

Handbags: this season's styles and colors are so plentiful you're sure to find the perfect bag for every occasion. I adore this bright leather crossbody bag for everyday. And what about this unique bamboo clutch? Not only is it gorgeous but it's a great conversation starter. (I should know; mine got me a date with the hot VP of a renewable energy firm!) And this sailcloth tote is perfect for hauling all your goodies to and fro!

Fill your jewelry box with layered necklaces (chunky beads and gorgeous pendants), gorgeous earrings, and stacked bangles. And don't forget your wardrobe staples, like spring-y skinny jeans, pencil skirt, a white tank, chic flats and a great jacket. You'll need all of these for spring.

Shop Happy,

Shop Girl

Nina Dobrev Rocks the People's Choice Awards

Nina Dobrev looked amazing as she hit the red carpet recently at the 2014 People’s Choice Awards. For Nina’s edgy look, celebrity hairstylist Riawna Capri created a “knothawk” that complimented her sexy black dress. Riawna explains how to get Nina’s style equation using KMS® California hair care:

Since Nina wore a bold black dress that comes a little up the neck, Riawna wanted to put her hair up in a sleek and sexy style to show off the dress. She created a Mohawk containing about 100 knots that went from the back of her hair all the way to the top, with a little bit of texture. In order to achieve this textured look, Riawna spritzed KMS® California HAIRPLAY sea salt spray to give Nina’s hair the natural texture it got when she was swimming in the ocean in Australia where she just got back from this morning.

Then, to finish the look and keep Nina’s hair in place all night, Riawna sprayed KMS® California HAIRSTAY maximum hold spray ($17.99).
