Looking good when you step outside is one thing, but feeling good when you walk inside is another thing altogether. If naming a home is an indicator of greatness, the Mr. and Mrs. Max Azria’s La Maison du Soleil fits the mold. The 60-room mansion in Holmby Hills, CA was co-decorated with interior designer Aly Daly, but the distinctly grand style oozes with the chicness that Lubov is known for. From a larger than life orange horse in the living room to a custom made waterfall chandelier spilling over an artfully sculpted piece of petrified wood, Ms. Azria’s style is certainly not for the faint of heart. Would you, could you, go this bold?

Next stop, Belgium. Continuing our virtual global trek for the most divine of fashion creatures has us stalking Hanne Gaby Odiel. The 24 year old model beauty sparks a reaction not just for her angular features and intense eyes, but also for her ridiculous street style. And by ridiculous, I mean AMAZING.
Looking to rev up your wardrobe and give your closet staples new life? Investing in a statement print is an easy way to inject some flash into a style that has been overrun with monochromatic, color-blocked, or otherwise minimalist looks.
Tibi’s pre-fall 2012 collection is a flutter with fresh prints ranging from boldly geometric to black & white birdies to boldly colored flora and fauna mixes.
Tibi’s Pr-Fall 2012
Pair one of these standouts with your everyday jeans, solid silk blouses or slim black pants to create a new focus in your daily look. If you’re feeling extra daring mix and match your prints like a true fashionista. I especially like the idea of pairing the vibrant tank with the corresponding pants in a colorless version of the print!
The omnipresent bedazzling, or “be-studding” as it may be, that has been taking over runways and chic boutiques alike is showing no signs of relenting for Fall. We’ve seen it for seasons now – celebs running the gamut from Emma Watson to Kim Kardashian sporting the look in their metal adorned trenches. Icons from Madge herself to the Olsen twins are capping their stems in the spiky protrusions. Read on…

Patchwork is coming on strong in accessories this fall. I love patchwork as it adds more interest to any design. It’s a classic mix and match look but has a very sophisticated, luxury style about it compared to the old country style of patchwork in the 80′s. READ MORE…
CHIC MIX ‘N MATCH HANDBAGS
Luscious red lips pack a serious punch of sex appeal and sophistication. Years ago we saw bright red pouts from acting icons like Rita Hayworth, Marilyn Monroe, and Joan Collins. Today, leading ladies like Angelina Jolie, Cameron Diaz, Susan Sarandon, and Meryl Streep work the resurfacing trend that seems as if it’s here to stay.
Luncheons, brunches, clam bakes-oh my! So many events equal needing a large variety of outfits. Light and airy sundresses are great for afternoon into evening events, but you can also beat the heat by slipping on a pair of stylish shorts!
Memorial Day is just around the corner and that means one of two things. One, summer is quickly approaching and two; it’s time to slip into a fabulous bathing suit. Whether you are vacationing in Florida, Hawaii, Capri, or Fiji; you need a boast worthy bathing suit to showcase your curves and your sense of style. These suits are beautiful and functional!
Marc by Marc Jacobs
This suit has a fun and retro feel to it. Designer Marc Jacobs had a feminine flare in mind when he created this whimsical and colorful bathing suit masterpiece. The suit hugs the hips, has ladylike details in mind, and even comes complete with removable straps to work on your tan lines! Read more..
Q. I love stripes! How can I incorporate them in my summer style?
A. Stripes are timeless and come in many sizes, styles, and colors. This summer, opt for stripes that are colorful and not the average horizontal line!
Kate Spade’s Kerrigan dress is just what you are looking for to incorporate this hot season’s trend of playful and colorful stylish striping.
Tory Burch also plays with the stripes’ shapes with her Adriana skirt, which will make “waves” with wardrobe and remind you of the ocean’s tranquil movement.
Both pieces are very versatile, as they can be worn to a graduation, baby or bridal shower, or just a fun afternoon luncheon with the ladies.
Bags also boast the trend this season. Balenciaga has a fabulous bag named the Arena Classic Toile Raye City that works the nautical theme-perfect to tote with you on vacations, boating excursions, lunch at the club, or a fun, summery afternoon of shopping or antiquing.
