Monotone Rouge

The Pre-Fall shows are giving us tons of mono-tone looks, but the most refreshing of them all is the lipstick colors that range from wine to electric! Whether its casual, professional or fit for a night out, it is easier to wear than it sounds. Pairing red toned separates together or accessorizing with colors of the same, you can’t go wrong in head to toe rouge.

Live How You Dress

There are two things that define our style more than anything else… 1- the way we dress and 2- the way we decorate our homes. The Pre-Fall collections continue to roll on and I would like to think if these looks hung in my closet, that the style would spill out into my home decor.

Interiors Imitate Fashion

As Pre-Fall 12 shows continue to grace us with their presence, I have noticed a sense of easy refinement. Beautiful silhouettes, simple color palettes and no-fuss ensembles. These elements not only make up for great Pre-Fall collections, but they also translate seamlessly to decorating your home…

Celine and Chloë use a soft grey to weigh down their looks, just the same as the grey sofa in this room.

T by Alexander Wang was a collection filled with must-have basics that makes up the foundation of a wardrobe.

Yigal Azrouel’s colorblock dress is perfectly proportioned, much like these rooms which are quintessentially symmetrical.
