Saloni Multicolor Sunset Birds Print Scarf

Saloni Multicolor Sunset Birds Print Scarf

Living in the Bay Area, it’s quite normal to wear scarves all year round. Even on typical spring and summer days it can go from pleasantly sunny at lunch to chilly and blustery cold when you leave the office for the day, so stylish scarves are one of my favorite accessories to wear out the door or tuck in my purse just in case. I recently came across this gorgeous silk-cashmere blend scarf by London-based, Indian fashion designer Saloni Lodha, which I can’t take my eyes off of; it just needs to become part of my scarf repertoire.¬† The beautiful colors, organic style, subtle fringe, and bird motif all make it a unique piece, one that everyone will be begging to ask who it’s by. Though a splurge, the time is now to scoop up this stunning scarf from the Autumn Winter 2011 collection on clearance at 50% off.

Nicole Miller African Oblong Scarf

Nicole Miller African Oblong Scarf

Something about this scarf stopped me immediately in my websurfing tracks. Maybe it’s that I have a need for more color in my drab winter wardrobe? Or perhaps it’s my obsession with scarves in general? This 100% silk scarf from Nicole Miller is just the right part geometric and the right part abstract. I say that because flattened out or folded strategically in a certain way, it appears very symmetrical and exact, whereas looped around the neck and tied in a knot, it appears very complex and intricate. Slightly reminiscent of a traditional African kente cloth, I absolutely love the bright pops of magenta, pale pink, marigold, and cornflower blue. I guarantee this is a scarf you’ll receive compliments on and an endless begging of the question, “where did you get that at?”

Poppy Nude Chiffon Inserts Dress

Poppy Nude Chiffon Inserts Dress

If there is one color I think you should pull to the front of your closet this year, it’s orange. Not only is it my favorite color in general, the more red-orange and tangerine shade is going to be the trendy color of 2012, according to the Pantone Color Institute. And if you’ve followed this blog for some time, you know we have a soft spot for dresses with sexy cutouts and inserts (as seen here, here, and here). That said, I can’t help but love this hot bodycon mini dress by David Lerner. The bright poppy shade is gorgeously off-set by the, very carefully placed, nude inserts along the sides under the bust. Instead of always highlighting my jewelry, shoes, or makeup, I think I have finally found the perfectly bright and bold statement dress to wear out.

Rachel Zoe Natalie Tie Collar Blouse

Rachel Zoe Natalie Tie Collar Blouse

We know, we know, blouses can sometimes be so blaaah. Having been there all too often, I bring to you this: the Zoe Natalie Tie Collar Blouse. For those of you who want to flaunt some style and personality in your work wardrobe, I recommend this leopard silk blouse by Rachel Zoe, as an easy way to bring the flare back to your everyday work attire. Worn with a black camisole underneath and a black blazer over the top, I think this blouse is a fantastic way to switch up the work wardrobe, without looking too flashy. Accent off with gold jewelry like bangles or cocktail rings and all you’ll need is a little eyeliner and extra mascara in your purse to make that instant day-to-night transition. Rawr.
