Move Something . . .

Bringing sexy back . . .

Bringing sexy back . . .

Been working on new colors for the Bee Keyper fringe tassels/keychains. I love the movement + interest they create when used as handbag tassels. These tassels are a great way to add a dramatic edge to bags, especially when you choose a contrasting colored tassel or one with a metallic finished leather, like the Liquid Gold color above. What are some colors you would like to see the Bee Keyper available in for summer?

My Uniform . . .

My Uniform_thelookbookphilosophy.com wearing:: Uniqlo cargo skinnies (sold out) similar here | random off shoulder T | Jessica Bennett croc stud sandals (sold out) similar here | ayanna listenbee Allegra Hobo (previous season) 

As much as I love fashion and trying new things, I realized something as I was getting dressed this morning. I love a good uniform. By uniform, I mean that I have learned what types of clothes look good on my body type, and what types of clothes I feel most comfortable and powerful in. Oftentimes my choice of dress depends on the types of activities staring back at me from my TO DO list that day. But generally, I gravitate toward one of my many uniforms when selecting what to wear. One of my favorite go-to outfits is a great pair of skinnies, an off the shoulder shirt, heels and a great bag. Oh, and a stack of bracelets and rings. Works for me every time. I always feel ready to take on what life has to offer in this uniform. Heels really do that for me. I never really feel dressed enough, unless I am wearing a pair of heels… of course that depends on where I am going and what I am doing that day. I’m not the type to shop in heels or even run errands in heels, but when I’ve got somewhere else to go, they give me life. So does a great bag. I’m really into big slouchy bags and soft cross body bags right now. In the image above I am carrying my Allegra Hobo in chocoloate suede. I love her because she has these great gold rivets on the handle and fringe with gold bells. I love a little movement in my clothes. So, what is your favorite YOU-niform?

WWD MAGIC:: ShawLux Scarves @ ENK

shawlux+1_thelookbookphilosophy.com.jpg Shawlux_thelookbookphilosophy.com.jpg shawluxhang2_thelookbookphilosophy.com.jpg Annu+Nick As you probably already know, I am an avid scarf addict. I’ve been known to wear a scarf in 90 degree weather (of course it was lightweight voile and I had on a tank top . . . but that’s a story for an outfit post ☺) One of my favorite finds at the ENK Women’s show was discovering the brother and sister design team behind 5 year old label, ShawLux. Annu and Nick Gyani apply digital photographs to cashmere, silk and modal fabrics. Their line for Spring/Summer consisted of beautiful digital printed scarves, shawls and caftans. The line retails from $80-$300. ShawlLux can be found at Nordstrom, Henri Bendel, Barney’s, Kitson and Anthropologie. I’m already planning on purchasing the NYC Taxi scarf for my trip to NYC this Spring! For more information, visit shawlux.com.

It’s been so hectic the past few weeks leading up to Christmas, that I didn’t do much posting. I hope you all had wonderful holiday celebrations with your families and friends. Last week I did some last minute shopping in Claremont Village and we snapped a few shots. The weather was cooler (which of course I LOVED). I’m hoping we get back to cooler temps around these parts again soon. Hope you are all enjoying this holiday season.

What are your plans for New Years?

Accessorizing:: Ring Bling Wish List Part I

TLBP_ Ring Bling_wmk_800

I have always had a love affair with rings. (Actually, I think I developed a deep fondness for them when I recognized the similarity between my fingers and E.T.’s. #truth). At that time, I saw rings as a distraction or disguise for my lanky digits. These days I am quite comfortable with my fingers and love that I can pile on layers upon layers of rings.  I have a penchant for chunky oversized rings.  This season . . . well any season really, I am looking to indulge my senses with another addition to my statement ring collection. Here are a few beauties I’ve got my eye on. . . .

Clockwise from top: Emilio Pucci Gold-tone crystal & resin ring $525 | Rosantica Regale gold-dipped chalcedony ring $235 | Bijoux Heart La Terre D’or gold plated Swarovski crystal ring $560

What is your favorite piece of jewelry to wear?
