INTRODUCING #FeastieFridays!

Cat’s style can be described as simple and chic.  I call this dress the “Paint Splash Dress.” The dress is not only stylish, but also practical! The pockets make it a perfect fit for occasions where you need to travel light. 

Cat’s outfit for her father’s memorial had to be more than the average LBD (“Little Black Dress”).  The splashes of color seemed a fitting tribute to the celebration of his life and a perfect way to showcase Cat’s ability to find the good in the toughest of life’s moments. 

I pumped the outfit up with these fab blue suede heels and topped it off with a touch of bling: some blue crystal drop earrings. 

Remember, Feasties: if you’re going to make a statement with the dress, be sure to keep your accessories simple. 

Dress: Club Monaco

Shoes: Prada

#FeastieFridays: Fall Chic with a Dash of Punkie-Glam!

If it’s cropped it’s hot, Feasties! Cropped jackets are where it’s at this fall. Toffee and bottle green are just a few of the leather color trends to add to your repertoire. Throw a cropped jacket over a light blouse and you are styling! :)

For Catherine, I combined a cropped leather jacket with a high/low blouse (another MUST for your fall closet).

Want to add a little something to complete the ensemble? Studs ‘R Us this season and Every Girl needs to be a little Punkie-Glam, so I threw in some stud action on Cat’s Boots.

Some Fashion Advice, Feasties: If you don’t feel good in what you’re wearing, don’t wear it!

Jacket: Michael Kors

Blouse: Juicy

Jeans: Levis

Think sexy and simple, Feasties! Start by adding a little vintage to your style. Cat looked absolutely fabulous in her retro blue and yellow floral tie-front blouse! By adding some color and a subtle pattern, she was able to show a little flirt.

To keep her outfit balanced and professional, Cat wore a simple pair of jeans with a cropped brown leather jacket.

Don’t be afraid to mix colors like brown and blue, Feasties! They are both neutral and can absolutely be worn together!

#Feastie Fridays: Rocker chick meets Boho girl!

Cat has true rock star style. Deep burgundy and rich reds give Cat a sexy, edgy look that works well for her lifestyle. She makes a serious statement with this totally badass 2-tone burgundy and black leather biker jacket. But we all know that underneath her tough exterior, she hides a much gentler side. She hints at softness by mixing in a little boho with a deep V-neck shutter pleat sleeveless blouse. Throw in a pair of black skinny jeans and stacked heel ankle boots and you’ve got a killer combo!

Don’t be afraid to mix and match your styles, Feasties!

All that Glitters is Gold when it comes to Cat and Tess.

In this weeks Ep # TillDeath Cat looked timeless in this black glitzy hourglass dress from “Club Monaco.”

Tess, Cat’s partner in crime looked oh so sexy in this flirty flapper style dress from “Rag & Bone.

Clearly these lovely ladies know how to dress for every occasion.

#FeastieFridays: Rock The Tomboy Look

Tess puts the sexy in tomboy. Pulling off the tomboy look, while maintaining your feminine side is no easy feat. But Tess handles it with a style that is completely her own. This outfit exudes confidence, without trying too hard. 

Her long sleeve Henley tee says simple and comfy, while the slim fit of her top hugs all the right places. The royal blue color adds a nice dash of femininity. But, her moto motorcycle jeans tell you she means business. To complete the look she works a mean pair of Frye boots

Want to channel your inner tomboy? Take notes from Tess. Hold your head high, keep it simple, add a little color, and rock those boots, Feasties!

Feastie Fridays!

Who says a cop can’t look good on the job? You have the right to remain fashionable! Color blocking is super hot this season and Tess totally rocked it at the precinct in this two-tone black and caramel knit long sleeve top. Add in a pair of fitted motorcycle jeans and you’ve got a totally killer combo! The nights can get a little cold out on the beat and no outfit is complete without a kickass jacket. Remember when we talked about colored leather? Tess finishes her look with a brownish-green Brato leather jacket and of course: her fave boots.

Get out there and show ‘em what you’re made of, #Feasties!

To The Dark Side She Goes

  

We said our goodbyes in last weeks Ep  of Beauty And The Beast to lovely Tori.  After the Ep aired I got a lot of requests from my #Feasties asking about what Tori was wearing in Ep  212 “Recipe For Disaster.”

  

So here is it is,  The dress Tori wore to JT ‘s party. This sexy Black Leather /stretch fitted number is from Danier Leather. As Tori became more Beast like - I started to darken her look.  So I put her in this leather/zip Jacket also from Danier.On her Feet Tori wore these sexy babies from E Live From The Red Carpet Shoes.

All new episode Monday at 9/8c on The CW.

#FeastieFridays: A Fond Farewell to Heather!

Did someone say “Flower Power,” Feasties? This week we honor our favorite fashionista before she heads off to the sunny shores of Miami. Heather is our little ray of sunshine & her clothes just have to reflect that! Her style is very Audrey Hepburn: full of bright colors & flirty 60’s-inspired cuts. Heather looked downright delectable in this peek-a-boo lace midriff sundress. To offset the sundress, I paired it with these adorable orange & pink strappy wedge sandals.

Channel your inner Audrey with a vintage inspired look, Feasties!

Dress: Top Shop

Shoes: DKNY
