Swarovski Anniversary Sparkle

Mosaic Neckpiece by Jason Wu for Swarovski Atelier

Swarovski is celebrating their 10 year Anniversary and to add some serious design mojo to the occasion they have selected Jason Wu to create an exclusive Atelier Swarovski line. The collection entitled “Mosaic” consists of 7 items (2 necklaces,2 pairs of earrings, 1 ring, 1 bangle and 1 small sized clutch). The number of items presented  seems to be fitting for the occasion since 7 IS a lucky number.  All the items are beauuutiful (trust me on this one-the site  web page  does NOT do it justice) and all items are  priced a “tad” higher than their usual line (Tad translation-prices are MUCH higher  than the usual Swarovski offerings).

Price points start at $249.99 for the ring and top out at (wait for it) $2, 990.00 for the necklace featured above. Bear in mind this collection is designed by THE Jason Wu! (who burst onto the fashion spotlight when he designed the Inauguration Gowns (yes that is plural) for Michelle Obama and continues to dazzle the fashion world with his creations today.

Jason Wu Spring 2013

Posted By: Terri

Allot has happened in the four years since Jason Wu  first gained national attention. Most of us became aware of this wonderful designer when he burst onto the fashion scene(literally overnight). ..Jason Wu was “THE DESIGNER” chosen to create a gown for First Lady Michelle Obama. I am sure you remember THAT gown-one shoulder, beautifully draped and with the most feminine  of detailing. Anywho-Fast forward to last weeks showing of Jason Wu’s Spring 2013 Collection. Mr. Wu has evolved and clearly feels comfortable pushing the envelope with a collection filled with lots and lots of leather, lace and more than a few looks sporting bare midriffs. I don’t know if the more revealing attire is something that our First Lady will be sporting but I will say Mr. Wu has definitely found his own point of view.

Jason Wu on Speed dial!

First Lady Michelle Obama literally put designer Jason Wu on the fashion map when she wore his beautiful white gown to the Inaugural Ball in January 2009…. Fast forward two years and Jason Wu is still going strong. His Fall 2011 collection at New York Fashion Week is a beautiful mix of intricate detailing, lush fabrications and exquisite styling…I have a feeling that this collection will have Jason Wu on First Lady Michelle Obama’s speed dial.

Pencil You In!

The Perfect Pencil Skirt. Ann Taylor $110.00

The Perfect Pencil Skirt. Ann Taylor $110.00

Here we go! It’s almost the end of July and even though the temp today in SUNNY California is 101 degrees, I am finally ready (and I hope you are)- to talk Fall Fashion 2009-2010.

First up-The Pencil Skirt.

 A fashion staple that will look good on EVEYBODY- promise! All you have to remember are two simple rules to make this fashion item look good and last forever:

Ready? Grab your pencil and take note:

Rule #1: Make sure your pencil skirt fits! Meaning: It should sit comfortably around the waist and glide past your hip to reach knee or just above knee length. Translation:- no pulling, gaping, bunching of fabric at the hip, derriere(bum/booty) whatever you want to call it … or any other area heading down to the knee.  If you need a larger size that will alleviate the gaposis problem then purchase skirt to fit your widest area and have the waist altered to fit you. There is this amazing resource called a TAILOR. A good tailor doesn’t cost a fortune and can alter the waist and length in no time flat.

Rule #2: Optimal skirt length on every woman is just above or at the knee. If it’s to long…..-H.E.M. it.

A good pencil skirt will last a lifetime.
