bon list: pretty pastels and a pop of black

28 05 2009

Hello, and welcome to our newest segment: the Bon List.  Here we’ll be compiling trends, fashion direction and anything else we can fit neatly into one photo post.  We are by no means an authority on style, just sharing with you all what we think promotes the good life.  We didn’t really take retail price into consideration (more of a “lust” versus “must” list) but I’m sure you will be able to find similar looks for less.  Hope you enjoy!

Our first Bon List is about color combination for the spring/summer.  As seen on Daria Werbowy, black is a great accent on pastels and bright colors.  I actually have the Forever skirt below and paired it with a white tank, beige cardigan and black sandals.  I also accessorized with my owl necklace and Botkier bag.

cute owl necklace

23 05 2009

The other day, Saam sent me a link to this Kate Spade owl bag.  He liked it, I did not.  Nothing against owls, I just didn’t want to spend what was likely a fortune on this cutesy bag.  Besides, I didn’t like owls in my fashion thank you very much. Plenty of designers have incorporated owls in shirts, necklaces and such.  Even Krazy Kelly (Bensimon) of the Real Housewives had several owl pieces in her jewelry “collection.”  (Side note – did you SEE that episode?  She is cuckoo crazy)

Anyway, so I went to Forever 21 recently (so sue me) and was browsing their expansive accessories section when I came across the cutest necklace.  Yes folks, it was an OWL necklace.  I almost didn’t buy it cause I didn’t want Saam to tease me but at $4.80, I couldn’t pass up this cute steal!

Isn’t this necklace just so fun?  I love the bright colors and the black beady eyes.  I went to a cocktail reception this past week and people were complimenting me on it.  Even the dudes!  And here I thought they were staring at something else.  So, if you want a fun accessory I suggest you go to Forever pronto.  Just try not to buy the whole store while you’re there.
