I am so excited to announce my new job as Associate Designer for Wilster Apparel Group!

Felicity & Coco is the company’s main fashion label and is sold exclusively at Nordstrom’s. Felicity & Coco is known for their high fashion dresses, quality fabrics, and accessible price points.

A few weeks ago, my friend Gaby and I were invited to the Los Angeles Fashion Week Wrap Party in Hollywood and I couldn’t resist the opportunity to represent the Felicity & Coco brand! Gaby and I strutted around that event as if we were part of the show, representing 2 of the brands best-selling dresses!

Gaby is wearing a flirty cut-out back fit and flare dress and I am wearing an ultra feminine floral fit and flare dress with full circle skirt… and if you ask me, we stole the show!

I am thrilled to be part of the amazing team at Wilster Apparel and to have the opportunity to contribute to the growth of this already successful company! The company has several labels (and counting) offered at different price points in department stores across the nation. You no doubt will be seeing me represent these labels in the future… and I hope you will too! Next time you are in Nordstrom’s, be sure to check us out!

PS – My beautiful friend, Gabriela, is visiting the U.S.A. from Mexico and she designs beautiful Amber jewelry for Ramona’s Accesorios in Chiapas, Mexico! Estoy feliz que estamos amigas!

I love that rare occasion when out of the corner of my eye I catch an item so enchanting, it completely inspires me! This lacey vintage dress with midi hemline, is not my typical style, but when I spotted it, it was a pleasant surprise! Flaunted by its effortless femininity, this dress was a fashionable chance worth taking!

Crazy Pants

Every now and then, I like to buy something totally out of the norm and see what I can do with it. I just love these crazy pants with the bold graphic print and side slits running down the outside of the legs! I found them in a cute store in my neighborhood, called Heavenly Couture, where everything costs only $16.00! I kept the outfit simple – I wore them high-waisted (on trend) with nothing but a simple bodysuite and a pair of heels. My boyfriend and I ventured into downtown for dinner and we ended up at Bottega Louie (yum!). When I sat down to eat, to my surprise, both of my legs were completely exposed… all-the-way-up! Oops. These pants are so fun and when the mood strikes, I’ll definitely wear them again!

5 Sexy Heel Trends For 2015

style-like-kacey-5-sexy-heel-trends-2015-web

#1 The Statement PomPom by  Charlotte Olympia PomlineShow some spirit with the PomPom shoe! I have yet to see the PomPom shoe in the mainstream retail stores like Aldo or Steve Madden, but you can purchase some PomPom shoe clips and add them to your shoe of choice… or… you could even make some at home yourself.

#2 Transparent Vinyl by Gianvito Rossi Plexi PumpThis sexy see-through material adds modern elegance to classic silhouettes and has been seen everywhere from the runway to streetwear.

#3 The Mule by AldoFrom closed-toe to open-toe to flats, the slide silhouette is a staple item for every season.

#4 The Lace-Up by Christian LouboutinAny material from leather to ribbon, laces traveling all the way up and tied at the ankles is sexy and fresh.

#5 The Ankle Strap by Steve MaddenThe simplicity of this shoe makes it a go-to shoe for any occasion.

The brand is inspired by life and culture in Mexico, as well as symbolic religious imagery, and is best known for its Virgins Saints & Angels necklaces, including their classic San Benito rosaries and cross pendants.

Coachella 2015 is right around the corner. This is the place where many Spring trends are born, thanks to the fashionistas who flaunt their most creative outfits. If you’re one of the lucky ones going to this amazing music festival this year, it’s time to start cultivating your most thought-out ensemble and rock your boho best! Flower crowns are the most covetable hairstyles for festival-goers, but this year, why not take it a step beyond the traditional headgear, and flash an alluring tiara on your head? The tiara trend is a luxe update to the flower crown and will add captivating interest amid the sea of tousled braids, buns and waves. Shall we call you Queen of Coachella or do you prefer Goddess of the Desert?

The Jogger Pant is spreading all over the market for both men and women. You can walk into any store and they will be displayed in every corner.

What is The Jogger Pant? It is quickly becoming a new category in the fashion industry being described as “casual-contemporary”. These days, for both men and women, it’s all about the tailorness of the pant. The Jogger has a tapered, slim fitting leg, and a casual feel because of the cinched cuffs at the ankles. They aren’t necessarily sweatpants, but they also aren’t a pair of jeans or chinos. This new pant trend provides another option in our closets and is quickly becoming a staple item!

MEN: With the limited silhouettes that are offered to men, The Jogger Pant (Zara) provides another option as something that can be worn as an everyday, casual item, and not just something that’s fashion forward. The result is a dapper pair of pants that are universal in how they can be worn. They are perfect for showing off your awesome sneakers (Steve Madden) while lounging around on the weekends, or, the big trend now for men, is to wear them with dress loafers (Aldo) and a slim fit blazer (Zara) for easy sophistication!

WOMEN: We are the lucky ones when it comes to fashion with endless silhouettes to choose from and to get creative with! I love taking an item and pushing the limits of it. That’s why I thought it would be brilliant to dress my Jogger’s (Cotton On) up with a pair of high heels (Steve Madden) and a tailored crop blazer (Zara)! Easy sophistication… and comfort!

The Jogger Pant offers a new category in fashion for both men and women and because it is universal – it can be worn dressed up or dressed down – this pant is a winner for everyone and is a trend that is going to last for a very long time! So go get yourself a pair and style them… well… anyway you want!

A big thank you to my boyfriend, Marc, for being my “man” model.

I’m excited to announce, that for my next fashion post, I will be dedicating the entire post to Virgin Saints and Angels amazing jewelry line! Below I am wearing a piece from their San Benito collection! Stay tuned to see this featured post!

Cabin Fever

Boyfriend Beanie (literally), Circle Dress, Slouchy Boots, and a Bold Lip! So simple, so cute!

A few weeks ago my boyfriend and I took a trip up to Big Bear mountains for the weekend. How lucky for us that we have a friend who just bought this amazing A-frame cabin and she literally gave us the key to the place! Finally, a chance to get out of the crazy city and escape to the crisp, fresh air, way up high in the mountain tops. It was so quiet, we could hear the wind blowing, and although that might not seem like a big deal, it was music to our ears. We actually went up there ready to hit the slopes for a full day of snowboarding, but we quickly realized that this little escape of ours was something that needed to be cherished. So instead, we got the fire burning and cracked open the Malbec – we were going to have ourselves a welcomed case of cabin fever! It was the laziest of days, cozied up in front of the fire, with a whole lotta giggles…

The architecture of the A-frame cabin with its angled wood roof, beautiful natural lighting, and amazing blue shag carpet inspired a great setting to shoot my look!

Until next time, little cabin in the woods…

Minimalist neutrals are the hallmark of chic. With my head-to-toe sparkle of beige, grey, and rose hues, my look is simple and sexy and is perfect for bringing in the new year! For a little added glam, I chose rose gold metallic shoes but kept the style uncomplicated by selecting a 2 strap heel.

All Black Is The New Black

Happy Holidays!

You just can’t go wrong with all black attire and this look happens to be trending hard at the moment. There is never a wrong time to wear all black… unless you’re going to a white party. Lol. Wear it in the summer, winter, to the office, or to a holiday party! The important key here is to mix different textures and fabrics, and by doing this, you are giving your ensemble a dramatic and modern twist. My dress has a textural pattern going on, this creates added interest and helps to break up the blacks. Also, as we all know, blacks almost never match each other… and they don’t need to if you combine contrasting textures. Mixed with sheer, lace, cutout details, or tulle a head-to-toe black look is never boring and is always sophisticated. So have fun with it! Piece an all black outfit together and play around until it looks right. If something looks a little off, try something different and keep tweaking it until it comes together. There are no rules. If you look in the mirror and think it looks good, then own it.

Boho Is Back!

Designers all over the runway are embracing bohemian evening silhouettes as a key trend for Resort 2015, like this color popping leopard print dress. Who would have thought animal prints would have been with us for so long? Neutral palettes as well as bold, colorful animal prints are still speaking loud and proud! This beautiful print pairs perfectly with this free flowing, floor length maxi creating an effortless Boeheim mood! Unfortunately, you can’t get this dress as it is an old style from the company I work for, Velvet by Graham and Spencer. But Michael Kors as well as a bohemian online brand called Spell, both offer gorgeous options you can buy right now! Check out my amazing shoes from Aldo …and right now, Aldo is having a great sale – 50% off sale shoes! When you wear a bohemian dress like this it is a good idea to add a high-waisted belt to break up the print a little. I love this one from Bebe, ornamented with these little tassels.

Mr. Coby Cakes is not my dog. He belongs to my boyfriends mom, but I love dogs so much and I can’t have one of my own right now, so I like to borrow him from time to time to take on my adventures! This time it was a for a photoshoot… as you can see he loves the camera!

*Please note that I do not condone the use of animals as “props” or “fashion accessories”. Owning a pet is a big responsibility and they should always be treated like a member of the family. Coby is my little buddy and I just wanted to share his cuteness with you!
