MCLV Style: Faux Fur & Pearls

Faux Fur & Pearls – Two of my favorite things.

I fell in love with this white faux fur coat on Poshmark and immediately snapped it up.

Maybe it’s my love of classic movies and old school glamour, but I adore pearls. And in my humble opinion, there are few situations that don’t call for them. Here I layered my favorite J.Crew multi-strand pearl necklace with my Kamryn Dame choker from Les Mechantes.

This is also the first time that I’ve gotten a chance to shoot my new Chanel tote. I ordered this from The Real Real for my birthday two months ago and basically haven’t put it down since. It’s the perfect size for day-to-day use and even holds my laptop so I love using it when I travel.

Do YOU love pearls as well?

Fall Accessories

I recently shared some of my Fall Essentials, the pieces that you can add to your existing wardrobe to help you create fun, flattering, on-trend looks for the season. If you feel like you’ve got all the building blocks for a great Fall wardrobe already, the perfect way to amp up your style for the season is to layer on some eye-catching accessories.

Everything from the killer boots that will take you where you want to the striking hats and bold bags that will finish off your look.

Bold Bags:

Keep your hands free this Fall with the perfect cross-body bag – Or you can even try out a chic little belt bag. Who could have guessed that designers would bring back the fanny pack with a fun, modern twist?

Ankle Boots:

The first thing that I pull out of my closet when the weather starts to cool down are my favorite boots. From soft Peter Pan-inspired booties to va va voom over-the-knee stunners, Fall is all about boots! So give your feet a break and try out some of these flat or chunky heeled ankle boots this season.

Faux Fur:

A great way to keep warm as the temperatures drop is with cozy layers of faux fur – From boho chic vests to soft scarves to glamorous outerwear perfect for layering.

What’s Your Fashion Statement?

One of my favorite fashion & fashion blogging-related communities to be a part of is The Girls Inspired Group – It’s supportive, fun, and brings you in contact with so many talented bloggers and their fabulous sites. There seriously aren’t enough hours in the day for me to check out as many lovely blogs as I’d like to!

In addition to introducing all of us blogger to one another, the group is also inspiring us with fun spotlight topics for us to write posts about. This week’s topic is a great one so I felt like I needed to participate – GIG Spotlight #2 Fashion Tag: What’s Your Fashion Statement?

So here goes… I would describe my personal style as classic with a twist – I love basic black & chic, timeless pieces – But with a fun, eye-catching twist like the addition of statement jewelry or an on-trend accessory.

{Examples of my ever-evolving style – Caped Crusader, Lady of the Night & Striped Leopard}

My closets are filled to the brim with basics like perfect Little Black Dresses, trench coats, quality striped & polka-dotted pieces, chic blouses, classic pumps, great fitting jeans, season-less bags…

{See Real Girls Need Real Closets, Real Girls Need Real Closets – Accessories Edition, and Closet Organization for suggestions & recommendations for what basics you can try out!}

But I also do a seasonal refresher every few months in order to add new accessories, pieces in fun, on-trend colors & prints, and maybe collect a new bag. Or two. 🙂 This process definitely involves a trip to Zara & some online shopping at my favorite go-to stores.

MCLV Style: Striped Leopard

Mixing and matching patterned pieces can be such a creative exercise – Deciding what pieces go together, which prints would look good with which patterns, and putting the finishing touches on a look without going too over-the-top.

That’s my idea of a good time! 🙂

These peep-toe leopard print booties are a new acquisition. I was thrilled to discover that the Paragon Outlets in Livermore are not only close enough for a day-trip, they also feature outlets for Bloomingdale’s, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Barneys NY.

It’s heaven in other words, so stay tuned for more of my fabulous finds from this great girls trip to Paragon!
