Pack Your Bags

Hello Glam & Sassy loves! I am writing this blog on my flight from LA to NYC. Since I have about 5 hours to kill, I thought I would use them to do something more productive than my usual guilty pleasure of scouring through trashy tabloids. I am super excited to touch down in the fashion capital of the world where I will be meeting with other fabulous stylists to preview Spring 2017 from the clothing company, W by Worth. I love travel, but no matter how many trips I take, packing is my biggest challenge. I typically begin the process at least 2 ½ days prior to departure and painstakingly plan out, which involves trying on, every outfit complete with shoes and accessories. I have found if I already have the perfect travel pieces in my closet, it saves a ton of time.  So I complied a few of my go-to looks that work (and play) on almost any trip.

Pack a Ponch:

Ponchos are not only very on trend, but are also the perfect travel companion. They are versatile, warm, and double as a blanket if you tend to freeze at 30,000 feet like I do. I love a pretty poncho to layer over anything from a dress to leather pants to jeans for a look that is instant chic. Like most of us, I wear A LOT of black. This black asymmetrical style with a crisp white border goes with about 90% of my outfits so I will be wearing it multiple times during my stay in the Big Apple.

Bow Down:

Sweaters are a necessity in fall fashion. So why not choose one that also has a cute design detail like bows. Bows are hot right now and I am obsessed with silk ones around my neck. This is such a sexy look, and all I need are earrings to accessorize. This wool v neck pullover was the style I had all of my clients try on during their fall wardrobe planning session. It comes in three amazing neutral colors, with cypress being my absolute fave, because it goes with everything I would pair with black, including black! Awesome! I chose this for travel because the luxurious wool blend is warm without the bulk…in my suitcase or on my body.

Slip it On:

As much as I love and live in my fave jeans, I am equally enamored by flirty dresses. Being the girly girl that I am, I always look forward to showing up at any occasion in a daring dress.   A slip dress is a must in every Glam & Sassy girls’ suitcase. Allow me to tell you why. This dress, known for its body skimming NOT hugging silhouette, makes it though the day then straight into evening. Style it with a jacket for a business meeting power suit alternative then soften her up with a scarf for dinner and drinks. I also will rock this dress on the weekend with comfortable knee high boots and throw on the above mentioned poncho for a casual look. See, that just took care of three outfits in one dress leaving room in my luggage for all the clothes I plan on buying in NYC!

Fur Sure

Hello Glam & Sassy loves and Happy February! Is anyone besides me ready for spring yet?  We have had some nasty weather coming through California…muchas gracias El Nino! I suppose if I had to find ONE thing I like when it is chilly out, it is wearing beautiful winter fashions.  There is an element of fun to layering clothing like jackets and cardigans over shirts, and the wonderful feel of cozy fabrics on your skin.  I was very excited when I found this fabulous faux Furry Weather Cardigan  from an LA based online boutique, Spring & Fifth.   I found them on Instagram @springandfifth (and while you are on there, please follow me @glamandsassy). Since we are both based in southern California, and we both love and work in fashion, it was a match made in social media heaven!

 What I love about this cardigan is the coffee- to- cocktails vibe I get from it and how I can style it for day or night.  During the day I paired it with my fave denim and wedge booties for a cozy casual look.

So soft you will want to touch it.

 

For evening, I added it as a layering piece to a monochromatic black outfit: black coated ankle jeans that have a leather like feel and sheen with a black top and black patent Louboutins, for which I have a love/ hate relationship.  I love to look at them, but hate to wear them! Ladies, I know you KNOW what I am talking about (ouch!) So I save them for nights out where I will not be dancing, walking or even standing ! Sitting is fine. I can sit with these on so this is the perfect look for dinner at a trendy restaurant or a glass of champagne with the girls to celebrate, well, anything! We never need a reason to drink champagne, right ladies!
