A Whole New World for PJ’s

I have to admit, when I first heard/saw/read about this whole “pajama” inspired style, I was totally skeptical.  There is nothing that disgraces the human race more than seeing someone walking around IN PUBLIC while still wearing their pajamas.  Honestly people, have some dignity!  Throw on some jeans!

However, I saw this trend growing quickly and realized that there was a way to make this just-rolled-out-of-bed look into a totally fashionable and acceptable ensemble.  So, I went out to H&M and purchased a pair of white and gray, vertically and slanted-striped pants with a zipper bottom.  Firstly, I was impressed by the fit – I’m 5’1″ and finding a pair of pants that don’t drag inches behind me is a rarity.  Secondly, OMG were these not the most comfortable pants in the world?  Yes, they were.  Finally, the slouchy fit wasn’t all that terrible due to the fact that the zippers at the bottom brought the pants into a skinnier fit on the bottom.  But totally not Justin Bieber and his latest obsession with M.C. Hammer harem pants.

I chose to pair them with a longer white tee, my cute BCBG jellies and threw on a colorful necklace to add some color. It was by far the most comfortable day of work and walking around I have ever had and I will absolutely be purchasing more of this style of pants!

See some more looks below of how to pull-off this relaxed look while also staying totally trendy!

Don’t Forget the Basics for Spring ’13

While most may think of an abundance of colors for the Spring months, Alexander Wang decided to give colors the season off and stuck with basic blacks, whites, grays and creams.  However, there really is nothing basic about his collection – with leather accents, major cut-outs (including some seriously intense cutout, strappy shoes), zippers and mega-sexy high slits and low V cuts, the designer has got us begging Mother Nature to bring on the warm weather to wear these pieces!  See some of the looks below, enjoy!

J. Mendel Fall ’12 – From Runway to Your Closet

Get your credit cards out and ready ladies because J. Mendel‘s Fall 2012 collection is now available at a boutique near you.  From the winter whites to the dark blacks & grays, fur to leather to sheer pieces, this collection is full of coats, high-waisted pants, and more-gorgeous-than-words gowns AND it you can own it now!  I am absolutely in love with this collection!  Each piece brings such luxury to the table and you would be crazy to think those big fur coats won’t keep you warm during the cold, blustery winter.  I’ll wrap up this post so I can step away from the computer and restrain myself from drooling all over this my keyboard.
