My Favorite Designer: Veronica Beard

I have been obsessed with Veronica Beard since the moment I set eyes on one of their blazers. Although they now have a full collection of awesome pieces, their blazer is what put them on the map. Even more than loving the collection, I love the story of the designers themselves. Sister-in-laws both named Veronica with a love for fashion design met, and thus, a collection was born. Don’t you wish you loved your sister-in-law that much???

 


 

Looking for a fabulous, perfectly tailored blazer that will be the showstopper of any outfit? Look no further, Veronica Beard has got just the fix you need. They have truly created what can only be described as the perfect blazer. If Balmain (also known for it’s fab blazers) is just a little too pricey starting at around $1600, Veronica Beard is the answer to your blazer problems.

 


 

A neutral animal skin belt can make everything better. Veronica Beard branched out into accessories showcasing that their talents went far beyond blazers. Animal prints are all the rage this season, why not add a touch through your accessories?  This is a great way to dip your toe in the animal print pond with diving in…..

 


 

High waist jeans are a staple, not a fad. Veronica Beard understands that a woman not only likes to look good, but she likes to feel good too! Why on earth did we ever wear low rise jeans??? I blame Britney Spears. This pair by Veronica Beard is their staple style showing off an exposed button fly. If you like fun and flattering, these are the pair for you.

 


 

A tweed mini skirt is just flat out fun. With the holidays almost upon us, finding a perfect dress is NOT the only option. You always want to make a fashion splash, stand out AND be appropriate for the occasion. Veronica Beard has designed the perfect party skirt. A touch of sophistication mixed with feminine fun.

 


 

A jumpsuit will always be awesome, period. If you follow me, you know I’m obsessed. Anything that can be fabulous, sassy, trendy, classic and sexy all in one is just basically perfect. Not to mention this long sleeve jumpsuit by Veronica Beard needs nothing buy shoes and jewelry. One and done fashion? Yes, please.

My Favorite Coat Designer: Mackage

Winter sucks. It’s cold, it’s dreary and it’s never ending. So why do I choose to stay in NYC? The answer is simple, I love a good winter coat. I’m only half kidding.

I have been buying clients winter coats for years so having a favorite designer has become a necessity. Mackage is literally hands down, without a doubt, my absolute favorite coat brand! The head designers are Canadian so they know a thing or two about cold weather. They preach my favorite combo, fashion and function should go together like peanut butter and jelly…. Or something like that.

 


 

One of my favorite things about the Mackage brand is their use of leather. It makes every coat just a little more fun. As this awesome leather bomber showcases, they know how to mix trendy fashion forward elements with classic pieces perfectly…. Say hello to your new leather bomber……

 


 

 

 

 

Oh the black wool coat. It can be so boring and depressing. But not when it is designed by Mackage!!! In years past, a winter coat meant you were forced to wear a bulky, unattractive piece so you could fit all your winter layers underneath. Not when Mackage hit the scene. Their coats are not only SUPER WARM, but they are stylin’.

 


 

A puff coat used to only be stylish if you were the Michelin Man. And then came the fabulous world of low-profile, more sleek down coats. Hallelujah. This sassy Mackage design highlights one of my absolute favorite things about their designs, YOU NEVER NEED A SCARF! Their necklines are typically high and warm so you never forget your scarf anywhere because you never brought one…..

 


Color, color and more color. Who says your coat has to be black? Not Mackage! Why not brighten up your day when you walk out into the hell we call winter. Think outside the black box and make red your neutral this season.

 


 

 

Anyone that lives in a place that gets below 40 degrees knows that a long puffer is not an option, it is a way of life. This coat has all the Mackage details. High neck with no scarf, yup. Sleek yet warm profile, duh. Leather detail to give some pizazz to your look, yaaaassssss. Have I made my case yet? Time to invest, buy yourself a Mackage coat now.

My Favorite Fun Designer: Cult Gaia

Yup, that’s right, I said FUN. Cult Gaia really is just that, FUN!!!! They blew onto the fashion scene with their plastic fan hand held bag and have expanded into clothing, shoes and jewelry this season. Do you know who that is most fun for? Us.

 

 

 

Their classic fan bag is dope. I have one in white and it made every outfit I wore this summer better. They have multiple styles and colors to make any one of your looks better (and more fun). I thought it might be annoying to carry this bag, not to mention it looks totally breakable, but I was wrong on both accounts. Tried and true, this bag is for you.

 


 

 

 

Ah, the sexy, sleek sweater dress. She is cozy, she is fabulous, she is your winter fashion best friend. This style is SO good because the off the shoulder silhouette makes this comfy gal sultry as well. No easy feat to combine the two. But, thanks to Cult Gaia, they have created the perfect “it’s freezing as hell outside” date night dress.

 


 

 

 

Obsessed. A stacked architectural heeled bootie is my jam. It should be yours too. This style is business in the front, party in the back. Meaning, even a fashion newbie can pull these off. They are a conversation piece for days…..

 


 

Right now, silk skirts are in. Paired with a cozy, cropped sweater or a leather bomber, this is chic as shit. If you are extra curvy, this style might be tough because it is a bit clingy. But for the straight as an arrow gals, add this trend to your winter wardrobe.

 


 

 

 

 

Neutral and fun, these spiky hoops can make any look better. Some people think white should go away for the winter, I say NO! It will lighten and brighten all the black you are drowning yourself in. This style is neutral and light enough for the daytime, but just edgy enough for nighttime.

 


 

Now this is a bag. Metal handle, yes please. And that neutral color? Oh, hell yes. Your bag does not need to be boring to go with everything. Owning only black bags is SO last year. This bag will easily be the cherry on top of your outfit sundae. Try something different!!!

Favorite Designer: Tamara Mellon

People are always asking me about my favorite designers. I have so many that I love, from shoes, to bags, to coats, to well, everything! To spread the good fashion word, I’m doing a 5 part series on my top 5 favorite designers right now. First up, shoes…..

I’m obsessed with Tamara Mellon shoes. She was the co-founder of Jimmy Choo so she definitely knows her stuff when it comes to style. There are two things I LOVE about her new namesake shoe line. First, Mellon understands that simple design combined with interesting details are the bomb. Her shoes are incredibly wearable AND stylish. Secondly, the price point is right for the amazing quality. For example, designer heels are usually around $700. Mellon’s heels are a cool $350, totally worth it!

Dare I say these are the perfect black flats? They are dope. Basic yet edgy, perfect for any scenario from work to a sexy date shoe that ISN’T a heel. I’m obsessed with all things clear, it adds that perfect punch to all footwear.

 


 

 

Cool, comfortable and stylish? Um, yes please. Moccasins and sneakers seem to have had the perfect shoe baby. Weekend style has never looked so good. Pair them with skinny jeans and an oversized sweater to look casually cool as hell….

 


 

Army boots are the jam. These are not for the faint of heart, you are definitely showing off your bad ass side when you throw these on. Be the bad ass, I believe in you.

 




A sexy nude heel is a must in any ladies wardrobe. This may actually be the most perfect I have ever found. Why you ask? First, the heel is realistic and STILL sexy. Hallelujah. Second, the nude color is a great shade for many caucasian skin tones. And third, the clear part is an awesome detail people! Did I mention I love clear in any and all shoes???

 


Leopard is in with a vengeance, this trend is roaring right now. Yup, I said that. This heel is classic, sexy, fun, trendy, interesting….. It is EVERYTHING.

 


A classic black ankle bootie is a necessity in every ladies shoe collection. This one works because it is elegant and classic with a sexy twist. The back zipper adds sass and the low profile that dips down in the front of the ankle allows them to be styled with everything. From skirts, to dresses, to ankle pants, to skinny jeans, this baby is your new go-to.

 


Finally, your classic knee high black heeled boot done right. Heel, chunky but not too chunky. Toe, pointy but not too pointy. Leather, shiny but not too shiny. Perfect.

Amy’s Ultimate Styling Tips: Part 2

What’s that you say??? You are ready for round 2 of my ULTIMATE STYLING TIPS? Not to worry, I’m here to save the fashion day. I’m passing on some of my most coveted styling tricks so every gal, far and wide, can have the stylish confidence they deserve. 

 

1. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE OUTFIT YOU HAVE EVER WORN?

This Alice and Olivia dress was my Carrie Bradshaw moment!  What grown woman doesn’t dream of wearing a tutu as an actual outfit?? I wore this on the red carpet for Million Dollar Shoppers. I pulled this look together literally 3 hours before the event! Every girl needs a totally over the top moment! Say yes to something that seems just a little too crazy for you…..

 

 

 

 


2. WHAT IS THE ONE PIECE OF FASHION ADVICE YOU LIVE BY?

Don’t emergency shop, you end up with things that you don’t love and spend too much.  

STATEMENTS TO AVOID!

I love it except it doesn’t quite fit right!

The shirt is so cute, but I’ve never loved the color.

It was on sale so I bought it because it was a good price.

Make a shopping list by going through your current seasonal wardrobe before even thinking of actually shopping. It may be slightly more tedious, but you WILL save time and money by buying what you actually need. Stop wasting money and filing your closet with things you don’t LOVE.

 

 


3. HOW DO YOU SHOP FOR YOURSELF VS. YOUR CLIENTS?

For my clients we stick to a very specific shopping list & typically go to merchandised department stores because everything is under one roof. It is efficient because they have most sizes and LOTS of styles.

The world is my oyster when it comes to shopping for myself. From boutiques, to flea markets all over the world, to designer discount, to department stores…. Basically everywhere.  I have one ongoing shopping list with long-standing pieces I am searching for and one small seasonal list just as I create for my clients based on current holes in my wardrobe. And of course,  if I find something I love I just buy it!

 

 

 

 

 

 


4. WHOSE STYLE DO YOU LOVE?

Jennifer Lopez, because she thinks of every detail. The hair, nails, makeup, perfect accessories, she doesn’t miss a beat. Don’t just buy a great cocktail dress and then throw your tote bag on with it. Remember, it is all a look, every piece matters!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


5. WHAT ACCESSORY DOES EVERY GIRL NEED?

The perfect everyday bag. Think about the function this bag serves before thinking about style. What do you carry everyday? Do you like to be hands-free and not actually holding the bag? Do you like compartments in your bag? Once you have determined the reality of your life, then pick your perfect style!  Spend money on this, it is a cost per wear item. You will be wearing it everyday. It is the cherry on top of the sundae of your look!!!
