Maxi-fyYour Rocker Chic

One of my fave editorial fashionistas is none other than the Senior Fashion Editor for Marie Claire, Zanna Roberts Rossi. Her take on cool girl chic is effortless. One of my favorite looks is when she was strutting her stuff during Fashion Week last year. Wearing an amazing full maxi skirt with a basic tee and kick-ass jacket really made for an exquisite shot of Zanna walking to a show. I went over to one of my go to shopping sites to pull an outfit from her inspirational shot.

Breaking Up Is Hard To Do…

It’s tough going through your own breakups in your personal life. But when you see your fave. couples in Hollywood end things,  it makes you feel doubtful and very vulnerable. They may even leave you questioning love.  I sometimes think,”If they can’t make it work, how am I supposed too?”  I guess when put two sexy successful specimens together in one relationship, the relationship may be doomed. Here Are my top three breakups that ever happened. Sorry TomKat did not make my list. 

This breakup was forever ago but I still have a soft spot for this entire situation. Rumor had it that Angelina slept with all her leading men when on set of her movies. So…It is no surprise that she sought after one of Hollywood’s hottest men. After finishing on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith Brad Pitt ended it with Americas sweetheart Jennifer Aniston and became a father of  what seems like a million kids over night. Bradgalina are now engaged and planning to get married. While poor Jenn is still on the hunt for Mr. Right. Even though she may be getting serious with beau Justin Theroux, things are never what it seems.

The biggest shock of 2012 is when I woke up and read that Seal and Heidi Klum ended their seven-year marriage. They celebrated their nuptials every single year just to prove how in love they were.  I do have to admit… Those two made the cutest kids.  Speculations surfaced that both their careers got in the way of their private life at home.

I know my Twi-hard readers are going kill me but I never understood K-Stew and R-Pats relationship. Frankly, I always thought she was a lesbian. Anyone else thought this?  Nevertheless, Her true colors came through last week when she admitted to sleeping with  Rupert Sanders. The director from Snow White And The Huntsman. Days later reports came out that Rob moved out of their home where they were living as a couple. My heart goes out to Robert for falling in love with a  Promiscuous little firecracker.

Thrill Seeker

I am not much of a thrill seeker these days. Don’t get me wrong, I have done my share of skydiving in New Zealand, surfing in Sayulita, Mexico and riding sand dunes in Arizona. However, this season I will be living in the fast lane through my clothes. If you are living the extreme life or simply wanting to just dress like it, I have the answer for you.

My inspiration mood board:

The key to this seasons sporty trend is to take one key piece and turn it into a day-to-night outfit.

For example, I found this amazing sporty Alexander Wang jacket to create a fun look for the office. I decided to keep the jacket the main event and add a pair of flat-front trousers, chunky platforms, and a mesh racer back tank. Keeping the color palette alive, I added a fun contrasting belt and a loud over-the-top necklace.

I came across this amazing surfer-inspired dress by Michael Kors and I wanted to play it up a bit. So, I  paired it with a cotton-blend jacket and rolled up the sleeves  for a more casual take, and pair with sandals and a fun bracelet. If I was out on the town wearing this little get-up, I imagine a hightop bun  glossy lips and a sassy clutch.

Road Block

Slam on your fashion breaks ladies, everything is coming to a halt this season thanks to color blocking.  Can you ask for anything more for your spring wardrobe??? Here is a road map of my must have staples this seasons.

They key to making this trend successful  is not over doing the single trend from head to toe. For example, the Carven pumps would look amazing with a simple LBD and a fun contrasting clutch.

You could also take the Tibi blouse, add fun pants, and strappy stilts to wrap it together.

Please DO NOT over think it. Have fun with it and make it your own.

One Dress Two Ways…

I have fallen in love with this cobalt blue silk belted dress by Jason Wu. It is a must have staple for any evening event this season. I decided to play up two totally different looks that will leave everyone gasping for air the moment you walk in.

First…I wanted to show off an edgy side to this dress. Starting off with some funky McQ Alexander McQueen studded neon pink Pumps. Throw on an over the top Tom Binns Swarovski bib necklace, and a Stella McCartney Neon-trimmed faux python clutch to tie the entire fashion forward look. It is a bit eccentric but totally worth it. I’d say “DO IT” if you are feeling like your inner rock star vixen wants to come out.

If you want a more Grace Kelly vibe, I put together a ravishing classic look. Starting off with Valentino at your feet. These classic satin peep toe pumps have an exceptional detail with crystals on the  bows giving a simple yet elegant finish. I also incorporated a modern take on the neck line. Even though this Bottega Veneta oxidized necklace is far from our grandmothers pearls, it is still subtle yet an intriguing piece of jewelry. To top it off, I added the signature Bottega Clutch. Big enough to fit your keys, lip gloss and a credit card.

Either way, This dress will have you be the talk of the town either edgy or classic. Let me know which girl you are… Classic or Edgy?

Explain What’s In The Bag

One of my Fave things to do is collect handbags. I justify spending moooolaaaaa on all my babies by looking at them as investment pieces. Let’s be serious on why handbags are soooo amaze-zing…. They carry all things I need in a day. I have been refereed to as having the “Mary Poppins” bag because at any given moment I can pull out almost anything. I have a bag-inside a bag- inside a bag. I love keeping it all organized because I change purses so often. It saves me time and I find things much easier with my system I have perfected.  I have invited you all to take a peek of what I carry around day in and day out.

Make Your Collar POP…

I am obsessing over a new up-n-coming jewelry trend that I think all of you should partake in A.S.A.P. I am talking about the Shirt-Collar piece of metal. My first encounter with the Shirt-Collar necklace was at Louis Vuitton’s 2011 runway show. I knew then I wanted a LV Collar necklace but, this struggling fashionista can’t afford the LV original.


That is when I discovered one of my newest “Fall In love” designers, DANNIJO. These ladies made my dream necklace and it had my name written all over it. This is such a great deal. Running under $200!! So gals—you too can totally partake in this trend without going crazy with your finances. HAVE FUN!!!

Tell me what you think about this trend. Are you going to take part in this trend? email me at casey@CaseyExplainsItAll.com
