Every collection exuded an uber-feminine and whimsical feel, which was simply magical. The designs I were drawn to this season were not just the ball gowns but the chic ensembles perfectly suited for the ladies who lunch. These designs by Giambattista Valli, Valentino, and Christian Dior were truly at the top of my list.

I find that feminine accessories make all the difference in these looks, from the bow belts (adorable!) to the dainty gloves, fur collars, and clutches. I'm already devising a DIY plan for a bow belt to cinch the waist of my winter coats!
Now, off to find a pair of pants as timeless and flattering as those flares!

Happy New Year! I hope all of you are enjoying 2012 so far. What better way to start a new year than with a fresh Look for Less post? I am a lover of bold colors but I always resort to the same palette for my home, white. It’s so clean and simple. Using white in your home let’s your colorful accessories take center stage. In my apartment I don’t have a designated dining area because I usually end up eating while working on my computer. But when the time comes, all I want are white upholstered dining chairs.This breakfast nook (pictured above) is simply divine! I love the built in bench, rustic chandelier, and dark wood floor. Most of all, I love the dining chairs. They fit the color scheme perfectly and offer a lovely contrast to the dark floors.

Flowing fabrics and a ladylike draping come head to head with a tough as nails jacket and accessories. This look would be perfection once the weather warms up a bit more.
Here's how to re-create it on a blow out or on a budget:
How amazing is that Valentino shirt? Even beyond this look, the possibilities would be endless with that beauty! Which splurges and saves do you prefer?
