FAUX FUR

by Lynn Porter


Happy Friday the 13th!

THE FAUX FUR VEST

the Quintessential Piece

faux fur is not only Classic & Traditional. 

it's the ultimate piece to add texture and richness to an ensemble- both day and evening.

 

FOR DAY- the natural fluff of chocolate fur adds a little luxe to a white tee and a pair of leather pants finished off with a pair moto boots.

 

OR- a long haired fur vest in ebony layered over top a lace tee and a pair of dark wash flares and finished off with a suede ankle boot.

 

FOR EVENING- my "all time" favorite combination: an espresso color fur vest partnered with the slick sheen of a strappy black satin dress and a pair of croc embossed sling-backs finished off with an architectural clutch. 

"SLEEK & CONTEMPORARY"

 

OR- worn with a fitted turtle neck in cashmere or lace, a sequin long pencil skirt (one that hits below the knee) finished off with a pair of black suede kitten heel boots. 

"VERY MAD MEN"

 best of all- it's just in time for the arrival of our cooler weather this weekend.

ENJOY!

SUKI & SOLAINE

WHAT TO WEAR IN 90 degree WEATHER

While the rest of the country experiences the changing of the leaves and the scent of crispness in the air- we in the Sunshine State are longing for an escape from our Balmy Climate.

Let's face it-It's November and we're ready for a change-but how does one transition wearing Black in this climate?

The answer is easy- it's all about fabric weight and ease i.e.

modal jersey, rayon mixed with a tiny bit of spandex for ease in movement. 

And our new "must have" line- Suki & Solaine will do the job.

The pieces are easy with great style. Throw them on with a legging or a bare leg add a bootie or a pair of gladiators and you're set.

the Bomber Dress can also be worn as a jacket. Simply unzip throw on a tank, some skinny jeans or a pair of flares and you have the perfect piece to travel with.

Have a great weekend everyone and stay cool!


THE FABULOUS FLARE

THE FABULOUS FLARE

a JARBOE icon

Inspired by the '70s style and Jane Birken.

Whether you're built curvy, voluptuous or simply a boy-cut figure

The FLARE pant in my opinion is the most flattering silhouette on any body type.

The FLARE pant elongates the leg, balances the hips and shoulders of even the most curviest of bodies-and puts everything into proportion.

The FLARE pant can be worn with so many items to give you a variation of looks. 

And this season, it comes in so many fabrications- from denim,to brocade, to velvet, to suede, lace, and even a ponte knit

 

Here are some of my favorite "LOOKS"

LOOK 1

a camel or saddle colored suede trench worn open with the belt tied in the back

 a jet black v neck top or turtle neck

a pair of black FLARES with an iconic black and gold belt

ccessorize with bright gold baubles.

(the gold and camel add drama to the black)

 

LOOK 2

a lace top- i.e. button up, turtle neck, tunic, duster or poncho

a pair of FLARE jeans- light wash for day-casual & dark wash for an evening out on the town.

a pair of strappy black heels and a cross body bag to give the lace some EDGE.

ccessorize with a great pair of hoops and a statement ring.

 

LOOK 3

a cashmere turtleneck or chunky weave sweater

a velvet pair of FLARES in solid or print

a 70's inspired ankle boot with a chunky heel

ccessorize with a vintaged inspired medallion necklace, and a minimal earring

and lastly... a clean modern clutch.

 

I hope this brings you inspiration.

HAVE A HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

DAY 1

THE LACE SHIRT

the PIECE TO COVET this  SEASON and FOREVER

For as long as I can remember I have always had an obsession with Lace.

First made popular in the Victorian era Black Lace lends a hint of

Filmy Moodiness to falls classic pieces.

Lace can be sultry, romantic, soft and edgy.

Depending on what you pair it with, it can be worn day or night.

 

For Day

1.

 a lace button up top layered with a black knit cami 

pair it with a black pencil skirt and a pair modern pumps

(preferably a square toe and a block heel)

or a classic kitten heel with a pointed toe.

accessorize with brassy gold and a modern spin on pearls.

2.

a lace tee or turtle neck tucked in

pair it with light wash, distressed denim and a modern pump, an ankle boot or great pair of flats.

accessorize with a pair of hoops and a belt with a chunky buckle. 

 

For Night

1.

a slouchy raglan sleeve lace top layered with a black or nude cami

pair it with a coated skinny jean or leather pant and a pair strappy heels.

ccessorize with bright matte gold jewelry and a hair-on or matte black belt.

2.

a lace turtleneck top pair it with a velvet drawstring pant or a straight velvet maxi skirt.

accessorize with a pair of hoops, a cocktail ring and a chain-link strap cross body bag.

 

I hope you enjoyed our first topic. We'll see you next week- with lots more to share.

 

Have a Great Weekend!
