For all who don’t know I’m obsessed with Fashion Magazines

Marie Claire is one of my favorites and I thought it would  be

nice to share some of the pages I #adore  from the issue.

MARCH 2013 Issue



This issue featured Keira Knightley on the cover.

It opens with a beautiful Louis Vuitton ad. I remember watching parts of the Spring Collection show on Rachel Zoe it was #everthing.

You can see the full collection here

Then there’s the #Fendi ad #todyefor  a beautiful sequins peplum strapless cocktail dress in multi tone metallic.


Max Mara features a dark plaid sided and leopard front panel pencil skirt it  is #brilliant.

Guess has a great ad with a salmon men’s suit. I know your thinking men in the color salmon “oh no” but it’s not bright, it’s a washed out color you can see it here.

L’Oreal has a new product called 3D Nail Lingerie from Colour Riche Nail the ad shows it in Royalty Reinvented (107). This color kit looks fun and creative. The look is great for everyday or evening. The purple tone is subtle and the gold shimmer is at the bottom of the nail so it doesn’t over power the purple.

Who can go wrong in #justcavalli I #luv this brand it reminds me of the old Versace prints. I #adore everything about this line the colors, the prints, the shape, the look. Check it out for yourself  here.

BeBe which is one of my Best Friends favorite brand has a Floral Suit collection that is #stunning click here.

Tommy Hilfiger brings us stripe on stripe nautical looks click here.

The ad for the #Fierce Award goes to Covergirl with my girls Nervo @nervomusic I’m a Hip Hop Rock style girl a child of the 80’s and 90’s so of course I adore their look.

I applaud cover girl for reaching this audience who is obsessed with creative makeup looks.




Page 62 -Behind the Cover Shoot by Ashley Ross shows the luxury of Black and White accessories.

Page 68– Instant Classic by Florence Kane shows the great variety of Gladiator boots for the Spring.

Page 76– The Mood by Florence Kane introduces stylish county inspired looks with a little rock edge.

50 Star Pieces for Spring: I love the gold layout on page 84, the color blocking on page 86, #Adore the tribal on page 88, and last but not least the Simply chic looks on page 97. These pages show you everything you need to create your #Spring2013 wardrobe and all the trends to look out for. I tore out every page and made a look book to take with me shopping.

101 Ideas: Fiber Optics-This page shows you all the natural woven textures that are trending this spring and summer. Tropic Thunder – Shows the wild side of fashion this Spring. I love the print mixtures and color combos. A Bright Future Futuristic and Funky just like I me and my signature style. They show a lot of the translucent and lucite trends that are so #hot even into the summer. Just A Peek- shows us some see through options, who ever thought mesh and net would be in such a high demand again but it’s back with a vengeance. Splurge vs. Steal– shows us how to get a great deal on the vertical stripe look that is so slimming and chic. The first look which is the best look is the cheapest but you could make it even cheaper use the #5 glasses fro 80sPurple.com and the second looks shoes the Mia from Piperlime.com.

Under $100- I love the mix of options my fav item is #7 all the items are from Duro Olowu at JCP.com

Rock Stars – I’m a sucker for jewelry and this section definitely gives me my fix. My fav piece are the Pristine earrings from Lauren Rubinski. Look Luxe For Less – Has some great pieces to choose from I #adore the brown leather skirt from bebe.com and the flats from Katespade.com. I have to support Big Girl in a Skinny World– my fav picks from this page are the multi color print front panel with black sides with white piping dress is a must see from jil-ro.com and the forest green with gold foil heel top with black and white tiled trim shoe from Sergiorossi.com. I would wear them together the dress looks like it will give the already gorgeous curvy figure more definition and the shoe is a show stopper.

Marie Claire@work section is Killer! Piece It Together is colorblock heaven from home to foot. My fav is the Brown leather with black and cream dress from DKNY sold at bloomingdales.com. Also the Fendi color-block short skirt is adorable. It’s a peplum with detail trimmed in light blue with beige, brown, black and white, sounds weird but you have to see it (page 216). Prep Cool for my #geekchic girls has a brown pleated flare belted skirt with navy inlays from belstaff.com that I love. I’m not big on this trend myself but I admire those who rock it!

Urban Renewal with Beautiful Photographs by TESH showcased a look from @EmilioPucci and pants by Atluzarra  that are gorgeous and I would love to own them. I couldn’t really see the outfit from @PeterPilotto due to the pose but I think its divine and the shoes by Nicholas Kirkwood for Peter Pilotto are SIC! The look before last is so chic I think the little black dress and the knee high gladiator boots are from Gucci.

In LE GRAND CIRQUE with Photographs by TESH my fav looks are the gorgeous woven crop “work of art” top by Balmain  (if you follow me you know I #adore @Balmain)


Check out the Shop the Shoot pages (326-334) to see how you can purchase some of the looks I’ve mentioned.
