Kendra Scott spring 2017 collection launch party

Wearing: Kendra Scott earrings / YSL lipstick / Gap long sleeve tee / coat c/o Thacker NYC (stay tuned-wearing this at NYFW!) / Gap jeans / Mansur Gavriel bag / YSL nail polish / Gucci shoes

Last week, I was thrilled to attend Kendra Scott’s spring 2017 collection launch party at her Santana Row shop. In addition to launching her new spring collection, Kendra Scott also donated 20% of her proceeds from the event to local charity YWCA Silicon Valley. Love!

The event was really fun, and I had a chance to hang out with two other local bloggers who are super fun to chat with; Dawn from Fashion Should Be Fun, and Cheryl from Oh To Be A Muse. They both have fabulous style, be sure you are following them too!

Kendra Scott’s spring 2017 collection included pieces which will be easy to wear with the spring 2017 color palette. There is turquoise, blue, rose gold, crackle brown pearl, and ivory pearl set in antique silver. The collection is so amazing! This is my favorite piece from the collection.

This necklace is definitely on my spring wish list! I also have my eyes on this beautiful cuff. Not sure which color I want! They are all so pretty! Here are a few of my favorites from Kendra Scott’s spring collection:

While I was at the party, I did indulge in purchasing two rings from the spring collection. I knew I needed rings to wear right now, so they are perfect for winter into spring transition style. I purchased this ring in crackle brown pearl and crackle blue agate.

Of course, sometimes you picture the perfect piece and it does not exist! Well, I did get a chance to play around at the event on the Color Bar. The Color Bar is fabulous because you can pick the design, the metal color, and the stone color yourself. They will create your design right there in front of your eyes, and you get to take it home with you that day! I designed the Alex earrings in silver and blue. They are so pretty! You can learn more about the Color Bar online here.

Since the weather has been cool yet sunny, I was able to wear this beautiful suede coat by Thacker NYC to the event. The coat is actually part of an outfit I have planned for NYFW, but it is so beautiful, and versatile, I felt compelled to wear it early. This coat is a great capsule wardrobe piece. It can be worn during fall, winter, and spring. The coat can be worn dressy or casual. I am going to have fun showing you different ways to wear this coat; so stay tuned!

You can learn more about Thacker NYC online here. If you are looking for the perfect jewelry pieces to wear now into spring, the Kendra Scott spring 2017 collection will have what you are looking for! Be sure to check out Kendra Scott’s spring 2017 collection online here.

eShakti denim jumper

eshakti denim jumper review how to wear a denim jumper denim jumper for winter into spring how to style a denim jumper denim jumper trend for spring jumper trend

Wearing: Kendra Scott earrings / Chanel spring lipstick / Gap turtleneck / denim jumper c/o eShakti (sold out, visit eShakti.com for more options) / faux shearling jacket (on major sale!!) / JW Anderson handbag / Kendra Scott ring / Kendra Scott nail polish / Gucci spring slides

Jumpers were a huge trend on the runways of New York Fashion Week. In addition to being a hot runway trend, fashion insiders were already wearing the trend on the streets of New York Fashion Week in September. This my friends, is a trend you cannot ignore.

When eShakti approached me to test out one of their custom fit dresses, I jumped at the chance. They have this fabulous denim jumper as part of their dress collection; and it is ideal for transitioning from winter into spring. Not to mention, it is a denim jumper which combines two hot spring trends; denim and jumpers. Love that!

There is something about a jumper which reminds me of my childhood. I went to Catholic school for a few years and we had to wear jumpers. In addition to my school uniform, jumpers were a popular fashion trend in the 1980’s, and well into the early 1990’s when jumpers transformed from thick strapped dresses over blouses into spaghetti strapped dresses over tee shirts. But there is something more grown-up about the trend this time around.

This time, the jumper trend does not have rules. You can wear anything underneath any sized strappy dress and it is “street style” approved. I love this denim jumper by eShakti since it combines the denim trend, the jumper trend, and a custom fit which is fabulous for shorter gals like me.

When you order from eShakti, they ask you where you want the dress to hit you on your leg, how tall you are, and for any modifications. For this denim jumper, the length could be maxi, midi, or mini. I chose above the knee. They also ask how tall you are, so this helps ensure the hemline hits in the right place. Works like a charm!

I wasn’t thinking about what I planned to wear underneath this jumper when I ordered it. When worn over a turtleneck, as in this post, the dress is a bit snug. Worn alone, which I plan to do in warmer months, it fits perfectly. If you plan to layer a form fitting jumper, or any jumper for that matter, order one size up to leave room for what you plan to wear underneath.

This isn’t the first time I have ordered from eShakti. I have a fun pink skirt from them I ordered a few years ago. The quality is quite good for the pricing. The fabric holds up after being washed, and the stitching stays in place. I am pleased with how well their clothing is made.

My denim jumper is sold out, but there are plenty more jumpers, including denim jumpers, in stock from eShakti. For more customizable clothing options, visit eShakti.com.
