7 For All Mankind Northpark Event

Embrace the brand that started it all this Thursday from 2pm-6pm at the Northpark location. Come celebrate with 7 For All Mankind as they launch their amazing unorthodox new ad campaign with multitalented hunk, James Franco. Thanks to PlanB PR and Bri Crum, attendees will be the first to preview and shop the new summer collection. Attendees will also have the opportunity to meet Seven's corporate team from Los Angeles and New York. 

I have always loved this California brand and its 'forever cool' aesthetic. This spring and summer is all about prints with a compelling assortment of florals, lace and tie dye. This brand has come a long way from their classic "A" pocket bootcut jeans. Don't miss out on this special event, and the yummy cocktails & desserts (and of course media gift bags!).

The "IT" Bag

Dries Van Noten clutch

I absolutely love alligator clutches, especially this one by Dries Van Noten. Their Fall 2012 handbag collection consists of a mixture of strong textures and colors. This bag is the perfect go-to clutch for the coming season. It is exceptionally wearable, perfect for the modern woman.

These Shoes are Made for Walking

1. Nicholas Kirkwood 2. Rag & Bone 3. Azzedine Alaia 4. Bottega Veneta

These shoes are some of my favorite picks from this month's magazines. Flats, heels, wedges, or booties, there is sure to be a perfect pair for you. A girl can never own too many shoes, and these were made for walking.

Balmain is White Hot

Balmain magazine advertisement

Inspired by Balmain's spring ad, I pulled a few of my favorite white & gold pieces from their collection that is pictured below. My attention was automatically drawn to this ad, while flipping through a magazine. My fashion eye is always drawn to anything absolutely covered in embellishments and grommets, especially if it is gold. So be bold by wearing gold with head to toe white this season.

Thu Thu

Thu Thu tribal embroidered biker jacket

During my research trying to find the next big thing, I stumbled upon my new favorite line, Thu Thu. Thu Thu is the label of designer Thuy Duong Nguyen. Thuy, born in Vietnam, unites western style with the Far East. Each design is a blend of fabrics and handcrafted Vietnamese embroideries. Featured in style.com print magazine for fall 2012, this embroidered and patchwork biker jacket is anything but basic. Take the classic for a spin and travel to distant places and older times with Thu Thu.

Sinclair Denim

My personal Sinclair denim collection

Sinclair, a Los Angeles based company, is hands down my favorite designer denim line. As stated on rewardstyle.com, "[Sinclair] delivers to the market a fresh approach to this centuries old iconic fabric. Incorporating incomparable fits in fabrications which are new and experimental along with innovative styling and finishing techniques". I personally love this line because of its incredible fit (which explains why I currently own four pairs). You feel as if you have nothing on when wearing a pair of Sinclair jeans. Don't shy away from adding your personal touch to these revolutionary jeans by cutting the bottoms to fray, as I did to my whitewashed flared pair. The Sinclair collection can be found at V.O.D. that is located in Victory Park here in Dallas.

Casual Cool Style

I believe that women can be causal, while still displaying their individual style. I always love to throw on a good pair of jeans and cowboy inspired booties (my weakness). This muted yellow color combines perfectly with these light-blue skinny jeans by Mother. Don't be afraid to add some surprise to the outfit with this sheer jersey tank top that contains cutouts.

It's all about the bag

I centered today's outfit around this fabulously embroidered and embellished clutch by Antik Batik. This eclectic handbag is anything but an accent piece, it pulls the entire the look together. As the center of gravity, this clutch can be worn with a simple white tank, waxy coated jeans, and subtle gold accents.

Saturday Night Fever

Channel John Travolta in this fringed jumpsuit and chunky platform heels. Maison Martin Margiela typically designs avant-garde pieces; instead this jumpsuit is tailored to perfection with an added touch of fringed sand twill. I love fringe and the movement it adds to any article of clothing. Ditch your cocktail hour dress, and instead be daring with this chic and contemporary alternative. To top of your 70's inspired look, add a sleek Rick Owens clutch to make current.

cover + neiman marcus

Haven't heard of Cover Clothing? Created by two Highland Park women and my good friends, Lisa and Robyn, Cover is for the fashionable but sun conscious girl. She loves to look beautiful and wants to stay that way...

All pieces are carefully crafted in an extremely light-weight nylon/spandex blend. The special fabric is certified UPF 50+, moisture-wicking and quick drying. It can be machine washed over and over while the sun protection never wears out. The fabric will not fade or pill.

The girls at Cover are passionate about the cause of their clothing - sun protection. They are teaming up with American Cancer Society to feature a limited edition white long sleeved T with educational hang tags. Cover will be donating 100% of the net proceeds from sales of the shirt to the American Cancer Society from May 2012 - May 2013.

 Buy your Cover Clothing online now offered through Neimanmarcus.com. Check out my personal favorite, the Nieman's exclusive pencil skirt.

Leopard-print for Spring

Who said you could only wear leopard-print during the cold, winter months? I always like to make a fierce statement with this wild print, no matter what season it is. This delicate, silk mini-dress is a must-have this spring/summer. Add a touch of color to this lightweight dress with these moss green braided sandals by Alexander McQueen.

Cartier Nails It

I absolutely covet Cartier and their love bracelet that was inspired by the chastity belt. The nail bracelet is sure to be Cartier's next big seller, which is going to be resurrected from their archives this spring. Created in the 1970s, this bracelet will be launched again in Cartier boutiques April 13th. Originally designed by Aldo Cipullo, this modern, yet classic, accessory is my new essential. Cartier hits the nail on the head this spring!

Spring Event Wrap-up

With a new office and a new season, the spring event couldn't have gone any better. If you missed out on the event, you definitely need to check out Mark & Estel's new "party all night collection". This new collection features an array of new styles in rich gauze fabric. Each item in this collection is also partially named after a different famous rocker. As Mark & Estel beautifully stated, "gauze is the sexiest textile of the season, it has a soft hand and a luxurous feel on the body".
