Marina Recap: World Cup & Wedding Whirl

recap

Hopped off the plane from LAX with a dream and a leather jacket… and snatched a couple winks of sleep before waking up at the crack of dawn (9AM) before zooming straight to Stylehaüs! My business is my baby (sorry Ben) so no matter how much fun I’m having on a trip, returning home is a welcome relief. With all the exciting changes and projects looming in the upcoming months, there’s little time to loaf around. And I’m ok with that. Here are some highlights of last week’s whirlwind of friends and family!

Work Hard Play Hard Need Nap

After landing in NYC late the night before, I worked a full but super productive day at stylehaüs, then made it to xiv for my good friend Dean May’s birthday.

It was a classic Summer white party and I had an amazing time grooving in the DJ booth with Paul Oakenfold, a great artist and one of Ben’s good friends.

The spot was packed with gorgeous Hollywood types and everyone got super into sets from Oakenfold and the EC Twins.

I wore: a Cosabella bra, David Lerner white cotton tank top, white Superfine jeans, and Nike wedges.

I’ve got the blues… The leather jacket blues.

All #summer really means for us at @stylehausla is lighter colored leather

I wore: Topshop jeans, Rag & Bone booties, and two jackets from stylehaus. The blue and white floral print on the left is VEDA, and blue knitted leather jacket on the right is by Price Upon Request.

Blue Hat At Bar Marmont

Ben and I grabbed dinner and drinks at the ever-glam Bar Marmont for some much needed mushy couple time.

Hot Dog Before Julio

Ben and I watched the World Cup in style at our friend’s new place in the Hills. As much as I love tequila, I was loving those hot dogs more.

I wore: Benjamin J beige tank top, Topshop black jeans, and trusty Converse. 

USA USA USA YAY

Not to be superstitious, but I swear my photos are lucky. The shot was taken literally seconds before USA scored a crucial goal. How cute are Ben and his friend in their matching pink button ups? I was calling them the Pink Gents all day.

When I say a house is amazing, that house is freakin phenomenal. Here I am accompanied by Sarah making the most of a beautiful view before Sunset. Her white crochet dress is to die for.

PhotoBooth For Life

Photobooths are like amazing toys for adults. Like grown up legos. If we’re hanging out and I see a photobooth available, you know we’ll be taking some weird and wonderful pictures.

Stanford Stadium

6.30

After a wonderful week, Ben and I took a quick trip to Stanford for his sister’s wedding. In a stroke of brilliance that my bridezilla self may or may not slightly envy, his sister held her rehearsal dinner at Stanford Stadium, where she met her husband. I can’t even compete. But I’ll try.

I wore: Balenciaga suspender harem pants, Christian Dior Jazz shoes, Pierre Hardy purse, and vintage striped top. 

The Family Stone/Kusin

My future in-laws are a damn good-looking crowd. How dapper is Ben? The only one not thrilled is that baby, who looks ready for a nap .

Sweatshirts: An On and Off Duty Trend

The sweatshirt…an all American staple that has become a worldwide fashion statement in the most comfortable way possible. With a collared button down, under a leather jacket, or strictly on its own, we can all agree that a crew neck sweatshirt is a piece we all need in our wardrobe for those days of not knowing what to wear. The look says “I want to be comfortable yet put together and fashion forward”.

From Balenciaga and Givenchy to Alexander Wang and 3.1 Phillip Lim, the runway was swarming with sweatshirts that everyone had to have. The Givenchy Bambi sweatshirt is a celebrity fashion yes and it’s versatility has been endless, paired with a long sheer dress on the red carpet even. If Bambi can do it, then so can this Clover Canyon “Smokin’ Granny” sweatshirt-like sweater.

IMG_8204

With the in-between weather of spring, mixing winter and summer pieces creates new looks like this Avelon Hatchet Mesh Tank under the “Smokin’ Granny”. This outfit is great for running errands and lunch with friends but switches to night by removing the sweater and adding heels. Having a few go-to sweatshirts makes layering easy and effortlessly chic.

One Color, One Bold Statement!

‘When in doubt, wear black’

‘When in doubt, wear red’

We’ve heard these ‘go-to’ style tips somewhere before, but we’re here to set the record straight: when in doubt… It’s quite all right to go all-out in your favorite color.

Lately, we’re seeing more and more appearances of men and women rocking one color from head to toe; it may be the opposite end of the style-spectrum from clashing your busy prints, but you’ll make just as bold of a statement by doing so. Whether you’re dressed to the nines in a powder blue suit for that springtime wedding, or going casual adorned in your smartest street style for the afternoon, monochroming your look is a unique, eye-catching way to switch up your usual presentation.

Although dressing in one solid color is striking enough, it’s the accessories on an outfit like this that will do the talking just as loud as the color itself! Be sure to adorn yourself in pieces that state the vibe you’re going for, and don’t be afraid to try something bold and oversized since the solid color will make your accessories stand out. In an extraordinary and colorful ensemble like this, you’re maintaining the perfect balance by commanding attention without over dressing your outfit!

These Boots Are Made for…Summertime!

Picture 8

Can we all take a moment to stop and appreciate the cutout boot?  Honestly, this has to be fashion brilliance at its smartest in the shoe department, and it practically has its own season after winter and throughout summer. With the breezy feel of sandals and the structure of a boot, it’s the perfect transitional shoe for the transitioning seasons. We’ve found ourselves addicted to almost every attempted style from stilettos, to brogues and even combat boots. We’ve seen them dressed up in skirts of various lengths or going casual-chic paired with skinny pants. This sandal/boot fusion is the slickest way to pull off heavier footwear in these hot summer months ahead, so check out some of our favorite styles and tell us how you wear yours best!

Lounging Under Sun Hats

Ahh summertime! Warm summer breeze slipping through our hair and billowing our sundresses, icy beverage in hand (poolside, of course!) and relaxing under a big floppy hat in the sun… lust for these heavenly days no more! These blissful afternoons are here to stay, and we’ve got to hype up one of our all time beloved summer accessories: the big floppy sun hat.

Its one of the oldest feminine styles in the book and probably the chicest of vintage-wear up to date, due to its proven ability to continuously grow into designer collections season after season. A wardrobe piece like this will top off even your best look with a big bold exclamation, whether you’re rocking your sexiest ‘IT’ dress at an event or simply being an afternoon beach bum! Check out how YSL and some of our favorite street-fashion masters have styled this pretty little summertime staple!

Out With The Old and In With The Chic!

Hand Jewelry

We have a hard time believing its been so long since the statement piece of an outfit adorned a woman’s hand in the springtime, but the last truly edgy piece that comes to mind that graced us from wrist to fingertips, are the gloves ‘everyday women’ would wear with their Sundays finest. Sure, trends like chunky cuffs, layering rings, bracelets, and fingerless gloves have had their 15 minutes of fashion-fame, but what happened to the chic pair of lacey mitts the women of earlier times detailed themselves with? Did we completely forget about a wardrobe piece so elegant and posh over time? Perhaps we did, because lace gloves out for a stroll in afternoon today may look like they need a pair of matching feather kitten-heels to go with them.

That is why we’re delighted to see a more exotic trend finally beginning to take over our pretty, delicate hands again; …hand jewelry!

We’d spot versions of the unfamiliar jewelry piece few and far between in the past, but it seems to be declaring its presence for 2013! This knockout accessory is the chicest ‘2-birds-1-stone’ wardrobe-staple to hit our jewelry box yet. Put a sexy accent on your overall look, and wear this trend to make your look express the ‘went-the-extra-style-mile’ while not saying ‘out-dated’. Sometimes more really is more. Ditch a ring or 2 for the day and put this striking ornament on display where your finest jewelry presents itself.

Blogger in stylehaüs Dress

http://songofstyle.blogspot.com

 

We have a major style crush on blogger Aimee Song, of “Song of Style,” which is why we were so excited to see her in this dress that we carry in our boutique! It’s the perfect piece for those days when you need to look polished and put together, but lack the time and energy to start mixing and matching separates. You just can’t go wrong with a dress that features leather (our fabric of choice) and gold metal accents!
