Skater Glam

The L.B.D.- Alexander McQueen style.  This skater-inspired dress features slashed, open shoulders that lend a little bit of attitude and offset the flirty twirl skirt.  Black on nude lace is simply gorgeous and hard-to-find!  Cocktail party perfection with towering platforms or (for an edgier spin) peep-toe booties.  Don't miss out on this rare find!

Featured Item: Halston Heritage Purple Halter Dress

Whether you're headed to a beach-side cocktail party or a black tie soiree, this Halston Heritage gown is your go-to dress!  Rich purple flatters nearly anyone and the seventies-inspired design is beyond sexy.  Fabulously versatile, pair this dress with metallic gold flat or strappy high-heeled sandals.  An armful of bangles and dangling chandelier earrings complete the look.

I know I've talked about this one before, but I can't help myself... I love it!

My Favorite London Spots

Just a few of my favorite London haunts for those of you traveling across the pond for the 2012 Olympic games.  Enjoy!

  1. The Corinthia Hotel: A little off the beaten path, but WAY worth it!  This stunning gem is moments away from Trafalgar Square and the Thames Embankment.  Whitehall Place, London SW1A 2BD
  2. Ziani's Restaurant: This Chelsea spot is popular with the locals and is hands-down, my favorite Italian restaurant anywhere. I suggest the Gnocchi al Ragu di Lepre. 45 Radnor Walk, London SW3 4BP
  3. The Mayflower Pub:  Because you have to go to a pub, eat fish and chips and have a pint! 117 Rotherhithe Street, London SE16 4NF
  4. The Red Fort:  A must for fans of Indian food. 77 Dean Street, Soho, London W1D 3SH
  5. Victoria and Albert Museum:  The V&A is the world's leading museum of decorative arts and design. Fashion-minded visitors might be interested in checking out "Ballgowns: British Glamour Since 1950" in the newly renovated Fashion Galleries. Cromwell Road, South Kensington, London SW7 2RL
  6. The Churchill War Rooms & Museum: Tour the underground command center and living quarters for British High Command during World War II and a biographical exhibit of Winston Churchill's life.
  7. Claridge's: An English tradition. Sip tea (or champagne) while nibbling finger sandwiches, sweet pastries and scones. Brook Street, Mayfair, London W1A 2JQ

Featured Item: Bottega Veneta Cocker Bag

 I'm so excited about this gorgeous bag!  Wish I could keep it for myself!
Visit Style Therapy for more information on this Bottega Veneta Cocker bag.

Anglomania: Lizzie Allen

In honor of the London games, I'm dedicating this week to British style!

London-based wallpaper designer Lizzie Allen finds inspiration in everyday life.  Whimsical scenes depict the changing of the Palace Guard, the iconic British telephone box, city gents and even a jazz band in Central Park!  These hand screen printed papers would look terrific as a feature wall (I'd love them for a powder room!)

Wear It Now and Later: Coral Jeans

Never fear!  You still have plenty of time to wear those pretty pastel jeans... with the right styling, you can carry this summer's trend right through fall!  I am particularly fond of these J Brand coral 811 skinny jeans, but other shades (mint, lavender and yellow) would look just as great!

Wear them now:
