SUMMER TWEED THIS WEEKEND!

HAPPY FRIDAY !! We hate to bust your bubble of sunshine, warmth , beaches and this thing call SUMMER. Fall is on its way and with it comes new silhouettes, new layers of wool and cashmere and of course falling temperatures. We are in love with this summer tweed pump we saw at Blake and at Saks Fifth Avenue. Tweed is synonymous with Chanel. We consider it a classic, therefore stride into the new Fall season with Balenciaga's Tweed Pump. We photographed this story at Jayson Home and Garden against a graphic backdrop of a striped coffee table and Balenciaga's charm bag. Tweed is one of the top trends for the fall season. Get an early start.Get it here: Balenciaga Tweed pump at...

JENNY BIRD JEWELRY. WHAT WE LOVE , RIGHT NOW!!!!!!

HAPPY MONDAY! WHAT WE LOVE RIGHT NOW! I was in Element's, the eponymous shop here in Chicago, a few weeks back, and spotted these fantastic pin's and had to orchestrate a shoot. I absolutely adore the photographer Richard Avedon. This image remind's me of his work. I really try to do a story within a story when styling a shoot. I want to invite the reader to think and process the image outside the fashion box. The pins were from the designer Jenny Bird. I think they are quite genius, a bit Salvador Dali muddled with a bit of Jean Cocteau. Jenny Bird's jewelry is available at Elements.

HOW TO SHOP LIKE A STYLIST….

I've always been asked this question. How do you do what you do so easily? This is my answer. I absolutely love what I do. Great style is actually not about the clothes at all, but about how you wear it, how you walk, how you enter a room and about how one feels when being dressed quite well. So many bloggers pile on the logos and labels and don't quite understand the pleasure of being well dressed.The sale season is upon us and now is the time to shop the major pieces you wanted, at a discount , of course. I suggest, the perfect leather bomber, candy colored cashmere, the perfect white shirts, embellished or not and the shoes you...

WE LOVE ANYTHING SHEER AT THIS MOMENT

Staying Elegant While Being Bold in the Summer Heat We’re in the midst of this summer’s first heat wave; it’s one hundred degrees today here, in Chicago. At TWOmuchSTYLE, we have the perfect fashion cure for that: sheer! Sheer – as in see through, diaphanous, and cooling; it’s what we recommend for a hot summer evening. In today’s post, we photographed Rebecca Bailey in an Oscar De La Renta’s silk, tulle embroidered dress with leaf applique worn with a Saint Laurent feather, wrap sandal.

TWOmuchSTYLE INSPIRES YOUR WEDDING DAY.

How to be Smart and Stylish When Searching for Your Perfect Bridal Look.   Your wedding day should be pure perfection — the best day of your life. It is by design that the bride wears an all-white, fluffy dress with a traditional veiled face, and a floral bouquet. At TWOmuchSTYLE we understand the importance of being true to your individual look. We suggest taking a breath from conventional dress standards and shop from the fashion runways. A classic wedding dress is expensive and it’s worn only once. Not a smart choice in our opinion. In producing this editorial, we visited some of our favorite collaborators: Blake, Elements, Neiman Marcus, and Saks Fifth Avenue. We revisited a bridal favorite, The Ultimate Bride. We decided...
