Oscar de la Renta has passed at 82 today

The news is quite sad on Monday evening as we are getting reports that fashion designer Oscar de la Renta has passed away at the age of 82. A little background on his house… He was diagnosed with cancer in 2006 and has had a hard battle sense. No official releases have confirmed that he passed away from this cancer, but it is believed to be the cause of death.

He will be greatly missed never forgotten!

I’m soaking up the last rays of summer while we are finally starting to have a relief from the crazy southern California heat. In this outfit I’m showing off my latest Poshmark picks – these adorable bow sandals and a jeweled iPhone case – how fun right? In an effort to make summer last all year, I paired some super bright pieces with neutral accessories that add balance to my outfit. I’m excited to keep wearing brights through all the seasons this year while I find what colors really make me happy!

While it may not feel like fall in Los Angeles these day (seriously it’s 100+ outside today!), I still like to dress up like it’s fall. So, to be honest, I totally put together this outfit just for the sake of a blog post. (Yes, guilty as charged! I play dress up for a living!) At the end of the day, even if I don’t get to have all the fall weather my east coast friends may be experiencing while sipping pumpkin lattes and braving the cold weather, I can still pretend and look pretty right? Hopefully you understand my love for seasons even if I only have summer all year!

To complete this head to toe Poshmark outfit (yes you can buy the coat, top, and skirt all in my Poshmark closet in your own sizes!), I accessorized with some lovely Etsy finds. Thanks to FashnDash for the cross bracelet & EPPU for the tassel earrings – I love them both so much!

Now, question for everyone: do you love the seasons so much that you would dress up just for fun? Which is your favorite season? Happy Fall everyone! And dear God, get this coat off me – I’m burnin’ up!

xo, Kate

How to Wear Sequins During The Day

4Adding sequins to a piece you’re wearing is the perfect way to up your glam game. If you’re doing a daytime look, though, adding sequins or sporting sequined pieces may seem a little too much just because it’s not usually done but don’t let that get you down. If you want to wear sequins during the day, don’t let anyone or anything tell you otherwise, not even these so-called ‘fashion rules’ – they’re meant to be broken every once in a while anyway so why not start now? Here are some tips on how to wear sequins during the day:

1. Accessorize with sequins – let’s start off with a low-key way to sport sequins: accessories. Wearing sequined accessories like purses, belts and shoes will give your outfit that nice yet subtle pop of glam that’s eye-catching enough but not too overpowering. To make sure you don’t go overboard with your whole look. Balance out the bling by wearing simple and neutral classics like shirts and jeans.

12. Something optional – another safe way to wear sequins during the day is to wear it on something optional and removable like a jacket, a blazer or a cardigan. This allows you to wear it whenever you want and can. Doing it this way allows you to take off the sequined piece in case a part of your day (like meetings) calls for a less ‘glamorous and fabulous’ look and more of a simple one.

3. Black sequins – I think that black sequins are the least festive of the bunch so if you’re doing a daytime look and you want a more casual outfit, you can opt to wear black sequins instead. Wear your black sequins with a colorful non-sequined top to give it a nice and refreshing summer-y feel. If you’re doing this in the fall/winter, try wearing black sequined items with dark pieces to get a sexy, vampy kind of look.

34. With denim – can’t quite work out how your sequined piece can fit in with your casual everyday look? How about wearing it with denim? We all know denim is the ultimate casual wear item and anything paired with denim instantly gets a more relaxed and laid back vibe.
