1. What 3 closet staples are must-haves for a city gal?
Chic flats, a nice leather bag and an assortment of jackets and coats!
2. How can you wear leather in a flirty and feminine way?
I like wearing leather accents and featuring only one leather piece in an outfit. Keep it simple and dress it up with some pearls or a pop of color.
image
3. Leather leggings or moto jacket and why?
Moto jacket for sure – you can wear it all year long (leather leggings don’t get along with summer too well)!Check out Tracy’s wish list leather items on Poshmark:
Leather vest: $16 / Leather skirt: $25 Retail $125 / Leather boots: $200 Retail $350

1. How would you describe your personal style?
I’ve had this question come up MULTIPLE times, and I never quite know how to answer it. The only word that seems to describe it is eclectic – “deriving ideas, style or taste from a broad and diverse range of sources.” I’m attracted to SO many different stylesm and I try to incorporate them all into my looks and making them my own. I love pulling from different ideas, adding unexpected touches, and I’m never afraid to try new trends. So I think the only way to describe my personal style is eclectic and ever-changing!

2. If you could shop any celebrities closet who would it be and why?
That’s SUCH a hard question, but it would have to be Olivia Palermo! Everything (and I mean everything) she wears is just perfect! Also, I’ve been obsessing over everything Jessica Alba wears lately! Her street style is just awesome!
image
3. What is the a creative way to wear leather without resorting to a moto jacket?
I’m ALL about leather boots! Whether they’re ankle booties, knee highs, over the knee, flat, heeled, whatever they are – boots are instant outfit makers!Check out Jackie’s wish list leather items on Poshmark:
Helmut Lang Gala Sheath Dress: $229 Retail $495 / YSL Tribute Platform Sandals: $299 Retail $895 / Alexander Wang Rocco Satchel Bag: $500 Retail $850

Trending: Winter-Proof Style

Whatever the weather (Polar Vortex or not), these fashion and beauty bloggers – Jen of House of Jeffers and Suma of The Fashion Beauty Junkie – know how to make their personal style shine through. For this week’s Trending, find out what accessories these winter-nistas must have and how they prevent their personal style from hibernating this season.

How do you stay true to your personal style while dressing for the winter? 
The cold can definitely put a damper on my style sometimes. I love to wear dresses and skirts, but when it’s 4 degrees outside, I have to make practical style decisions. No matter what time of year it is, I always like to maintain a mixture of super feminine pieces with a little rock n’ roll edge. I love the mixture of hard and soft when it comes to pairing prints and pieces, and I opt to wear a lot of wedges, printed/colored denim, and of course, sweaters. Color is key in the winter – the weather can be awfully dreary at times.
What winter accessory can’t you live without and why?
I need to have leather – a coat, pants, shoes. My favorite purchase this year has been this leather and wool jacket I bought at Forever 21. It has a motorcycle element to it, but the wool makes it a true winter coat.
image
What’s the most important thing you look for when shopping for a coat?
When shopping for the perfect winter outerwear, I want a coat that not only keeps me warm, but to stand alone outside of what I’m wearing underneath. I know I’ve found the right one when I try it on and feel like I can wear it with a pair of jeans… and feel dressed up. I’m drawn to coats that have a formal wear aspect to them, especially the hardware (like double breasted coats).
Who is your cold weather style inspiration?
Without a doubt, Alexa Chung is my favorite fashion muse – any season. She has a way of conveying her personality with fashion that is just… inspiring. Besides, she’s British… Can you blame me for admiring a well-dressed Brit?
image
image
What is your take on wearing heels in the winter? Yay or nay – and also, why? 

Heels during the winter are a total YAY! I think heels are perfect for any season to be truly honest. It can dress up any outfit and put a feminine touch to your look.
Does your personal style change from season to season? If so, how?
I stay pretty consistent with my personal style. I love the cold weather months more than the sunnier seasons because it allows me to layer, layer, layer!
image
What winter accessory can’t you live without?
I can’t live without my scarfs, hats and gloves. Being that I am from NYC, it gets pretty cold – sometimes people don’t get to see what I’m actually wearing so I dress up my coat with fun hats, scarfs and funky gloves!
What are your top three blizzard-proof beauty products you can’t live without?
It’s so hard to pick only three, but I can’t live without:
– L’oreal Voluminous Mascara (Even when I’m not wearing makeup, I always have mascara on)
– Boscia Daily Hydration Moisturizer (You should ALWAYS moisturize your skin, especially during the winter)
– Tinted Lipgloss (To add color to my lips)

Style Guide: Holiday Glam With Feathers

Since spotting Kate Spade’s feathered skirt, we’ve been slightly infatuated (okay, more like enamored) with the idea of having a style season a la feathers. Our hosts for tonight’s “Just Add Glam” Posh Party – Jennifer of Just Add Glam and Adiel of It’s Because I Think Too Much – are sharing how they fashion feathers for daytime on today’s post.

image

1. Feathers make such a fun statement, what is another bold trend you are loving for the holidays? 

Feathers are always fun, but I love the idea of sparkle for the holidays.  It’s one of the few times a year where I feel a big presence of glitter, sequins and sparkle, so it’s fun to play around with that trend!

image

With this trend, it’s really fun to pair some glam sparkle (whether it’s a statement necklace or other jewelry) with a season-appropriate plaid. It’s a fun mix of masculine and glam!

image

2. Feathers are so festive and fun, but what are your tips for wearing them for daytime?

Feathers can easily be transitioned to daytime. You can embrace this trend by wearing white or natural-colored feathers in small amounts – think feather earrings or a feathered headband!

1. Feathers make such a fun statement, what is another bold trend you are loving for the holidays? 

I really like statement outerwear this season. Bold prints or loud colors; I’m trying to stock my wardrobe full of ‘em!

image

2. Feathers are so festive and fun, but what are your tips for wearing them for daytime?

Feathered accessories are best for a day look; think earrings, handbags, or hair pieces. If you are feeling a little more daring, wear a feathered skirt with casual basics such as chambray shirt or basic tee.

Your “East to West Coast” Style Guide!

Whether you are celebrating Fall on the West Coast or styling it up in the East Coast, today’s hosts and guest bloggers – Naty of A Love Affair with Fashion and Paulina of Lil’ Bits of Chic – are here to cover it all on the blog! If you are absolutely falling for Naty’s and Paulina’s fall fashions, don’t miss out on their “Flirty & Feminine” Posh Party tonight!

image

I’m all about long sleeve sweater dresses and tall boots for cooler weather.  It’s great for staying warm & stylish at the same time.

Booties, skinny jeans, leather jacket and a hat are a must have for me in the fall!

image

I am currently having a love affair with leather, so it’s definitely a go-to piece for me this season.  I’m also loving the oxblood color trend as well. I definitely gravitate towards blazers, moto jackets, and long coats for the fall.

Naty’s “Fall Favorites” Wishlist: Anything from the Isabel Marant Pour H&M collection!

image

Since San Diego tends to go from hot to cold throughout the day, a jacket that I can toss on and take off is pretty essential. Lately I have been putting my moto jacket to good use because it keeps me warm and layers well with other pieces.

image

Fall is synonymous with boot weather and when I want to jazz up a casual outfit without compromising comfort I reach for my over the knee, no heel boots. By the same token, when I want to dress up my go-to booties at the moment are my Zara cut out booties.

One Trend, Two Ways: Polka Dots

image

Meet Laura and Emily.

Laura is strutting her way through a fabulous life in Memphis, balancing a day job and her blog, Walking in Memphis in High Heels. Emily is a fashion fanatic originally from Arkansas, living a fashionable life one day at a time and updating her adorable blog, The Sweetest Thing.

Laura and Emily met on Poshmark and instantly connected through their love for fashion(hello, matching shoes!)… and the rest is Posh history! Today, they are collaborating with us to feature one of our favorite trends for the summer: polka dots.

image

Here’s what they have to say about this trend:

“Polka dots have been around forever in fashion, but they are still so fun and fresh today. They’re such a great classic trend and can act like a neutral too! I am loving them for this spring and summer to add an extra punch to my outfits.”

– Laura

“Polka dots are back! ‘O’, but wait! Did this fun pattern ever leave the fashion scene? No, because polka dots are a fashion staple! Polka dots can be fun and retro, very geometric, classic, sophisticated, graphically bold, and very modern. For me, the beauty of the dots is its natural ability to play well with other patterns. Mixing dots with stripes or plaids, or other colors and/or sizes of dots allows me to mix and match and expand my wardrobe while creating an unique style … with a pop!”

– Emily
