Daily Obsession for May 12, 2011

The moment I saw this jacket I was obsessed! Being hot pink fuchsia, it’s an updated interpretation of the classic blazer. It has a slightly relaxed style, yet it’s still tailored for a feminine fit. Rebecca Minkoff has always been known for her edgy yet elegant handbags, though recently she has expanded her designs to apparel and shoes. My favorite thing about her pieces is that she always picks the most luxurious materials, fabrics, and textures. The Becky Jacket is right on cue being made of a sumptuous silk crepe, which is one of my absolute favorite fabrics to wear. I think this piece is the perfect little jacket for a summer night out. If you love this blazer as much as I do, you can find it at saks.com or rebeccaminkoff.com. You can pair it with a cute summer dress or even a tied silk blouse and skinny jeans.

Work It

Just because you are at your 9-to-5, doesn’t mean you should leave your fashion sense at the door. I like to indulge in something called “Little Luxuries”, small things that make you smile and put a little sweetness in your day. Wherever I am, even if it’s at my desk, I like to personalize my surroundings and give them a touch of style. Why? I spend 1/3 of my day at the office, so making it personalized is important. One day as I was shopping for office supplies (which I love to do), I happened to stumble upon these chic little desk accessories. A black stiletto heel tape dispenser and a handbag post-it holder. Fabulous right?! So, everyday when I’m doing spreadsheets and sending e-mails, I have a little bit a luxury to brighten my day.
