New Year’s Eve Accessories!

30 Dec

Ready for New Year’s?

Plans in place, check. Outfit, ready to rock.

How about the accessories? Accessories add instant impact to your look. Whether you are buying a killer outfit for this New Year’s or are shopping your closet, accessories can dress up or down your look, inject a touch of your personality, or can even make a simple t-shirt glamorous.

At White House Black Market, I spotted these sequined pumps. Pair a shoe like this with anything from denim to a dress. Even if you’re going to a casual event, adding on shoes like these to jeans and a simple top, will make an outfit you would wear any other day look completely different.

There is also a coordinating clutch.


A pop of sequins

White House Black Market also features a number of statement necklaces. They’re the kinds of pieces you can wear on New Year’s and will give you much mileage beyond.

Next stop on our accessories shopping spree, Express! Check out this eye candy! And, these are only a few of the many sparkly clutches and wristlets you’ll find in store.



If your outfit is all about sequins, how about going for a pair of statement earrings instead of a necklace? I spotted these at Express.

Statement Earrings

Black paired with gold is an on-trend fashion statement. At Laila Rowe, the two tones team up in numerous statement pieces. Here are just a few of the necklaces that showcase the trend.

Black & Gold: a hot coupling!

Are you planning to go bright and bold with your outfit? Complement a bright color with a simple piece of jewelry, like this stunning gold toned necklace, also from Laila Rowe.

If you’re still shopping for an outfit, here’s a link to some ideas from around the mall.


My Foray into Faux Leather Leggings!

18 Nov

Ever have a style you want to try but just don’t know if you can pull it off? I have been eying up faux leather pants all season but confess that I was on the fence as to whether they would look sleek or silly on me.

Finally, while in Laila Rowe (Level 4), I spotted a pair that I couldn’t resist. While getting shots of textured tights  for a blog post, I picked up and put back what must have been the 10th pair of faux leather leggings that I’ve flirted with trying out.

It’s the same pair that you can see getting prime display real estate below.

Faux Leather Leggings

Faux Leather & Fabulous!

This time, as I went back and forth, wondering if this look would be a friend or foe to my wardrobe, the price tag lifted me over the fence. $22. How could I turn down this deal? Yes, the pants came home with me. They sat in the bag for a day or two. Then, they moved up to closet status. But, still I couldn’t bring myself to commit. The tags remained intact. A few days later, I decided to take the plunge and wear something beyond my comfort zone.

I paired them with a long black sweater and booties the first time and went for a graphic print sweater for their second appearance. They’re dressier than cotton leggings but equally comfortable and surprisingly warm! My 7-year-old daughter snapped this shot so I could show them to you.

Rebecca Klein

My new favorite pants!

I saw a woman the other night wearing a shorter sweater with leggings, with the front and tail of a sheer white button down peeking out. That’s next on my list to try with my new faux leather friend!

I’m kicking myself for not trying out a pair sooner. I am curious to hear what trends out there that you want to try and don’t know how to pull off. Let me know… I just may feature you and/or the trend in a future post.

GURU Trend Report: Textured & Patterned Tights!

4 Nov

Come fall, boots and tights tend to be my uniform. I picked up a pair of textured tights with a graphic pattern on a whim recently at The Limited (Level 3) and have already worn them several  times. They’re a budget friendly way to change the look of any outfit.


Graphic print tights from The Limited

I like the contrast of a pop of fun texture with a work day dress or skirt. To keep the look on the more conservative side, you can pair the tights with a classic pump or tall boot. They also play well with booties, as shown here.


Once you get one pair, you’ll want more!

After getting hooked on my first pair, I scoped out the mall to see what else is out there on the textured and patterned tight front. Here’s another pair I have my eyes on from The Limited.

A Bold Look!

Express (Level 3) has a wide selection of tights in standout textures, patterns and colors — including floral, houndstooth, animal print, dotted and more.



You’ll also find tights in bold hues like red and cobalt.


Next stop — Laila Rowe (Level 4). These picks will amp up any outfit.

While poking around the store, I also noticed these patterned leggings. They are thin enough that along with wearing them on their own, you can also do them with boots and a dress or skirt.

I scored this fleece lined pair of textured leggings. I plan to wear them as tights, tucked into booties and boots.


Have you rocked any textured or patterned tights yet? What do you think about this trend?

Happy Purple Friday!

11 Oct

Are you rocking the purple today?

I scoped out the mall for ways to sport your Ravens’ pride at The Sport Shop (Level 1) and beyond.

Welcome to Ravens Country!  At The Sport Shop, you’ll find something for everyone in the family — including classic jerseys, clothing and accessories for your little rookie, fashionable finds for her and even Ravens themed socks for him!

You can also strut your purple style with clothing and accessories found all around the mall! For guys, I spotted purple ties at Men’s Wearhouse (Level 4). Note the sea of purple on the bottom shelf.

Express (Level 3) also features purple a plenty. I noticed these fun socks for guys by the register.

You can make a big statement even with just one accessory. This necklace from Laila Rowe (Level 4) can add instant impact to even a casual long sleeve tee.

You can score purple studded wedges at Aerosoles (Level 4).



Do you have that one lucky purple piece in your wardrobe for Purple Fridays and game days? I remember meeting a shopper last year whose spouse didn’t wash his jersey all season to keep the luck going. Tell me about your treasured purple items…

April Showers Bring May Flowers and Statement Styles!

1 Apr

April Showers not only bring  May flowers — it’s also time to strut your statement rain gear and accessories! 

All the styles at Laila Rowe (Level 4) almost make me wish for a rainy day!

The rain boots start at just $18.  You’ll find animal prints, polka dots, floral prints, bow embellishments and more styles in store!

Screen Shot 2013-03-29 at 8.09.11 AM

A manager at Laila Rowe passed on a great tip! Consider a pair of rain booties to use while gardening.

Ever find that you need something a little more sleek than rain boots on a wet weather day? Here’s a solution at Laila Rowe! Plastic “jelly” flats like these pull double duty on the fashion and function fronts!

Function merges with Fashion!

Need a new umbrella? Laila Rowe carries many styles and multiple sizes.


While at Laila Rowe, I also found these cute fold up rain jackets. They pack right into these little cases. Choose from polka dot, hot pink, animal print and bright yellow! They barely take up any room in your handbag!

Or, you can go for a more traditional trench option. This tan one, with an animal print lining, also comes in animal print.

A classic trench is a spring wardrobe staple!

Over at The Limited, I scoped out these cute, figure-flattering anoraks. They’re marked down to $24.99!

Even on dry April days, you still may need an extra layer.  A classic cotton trench like these two picks from Banana Republic (Level 3) will fend off springtime chill in style!

GURU Style Stars in PURPLE! Plus ways you can accessorize for SUPER BOWL SUNDAY!

31 Jan

In celebration of the Ravens making it to the Super Bowl, instead of spotlighting a single GURU STYLE STAR for the week, I’m saluting all shoppers in purple.

I caught up with Johanna while she was doing some last minute shopping before heading to New Orleans for the big game! She’s already decked out in her purple, right down to the Michael Kors suede flats! Her cardigan is from Nordstrom. Johanna tells me she has been wearing purple for two weeks. And get this — she says her husband has been wearing his Ray Lewis Jersey since the beginning of the playoffs and has just changed out the shirt that he wears underneath!

Along with a Ravens hat and bag, note Dino’s purple and grey striped sweater from Macy’s.  Plus, check out his shoes.

No question he's a FAN!

Most shoppers that I spotted are wearing their purple to show their Ravens pride. For a few,  it’s a coincidence.  No matter the reason for strutting purple, it adds to the amazing pre-game energy you can feel everywhere!

Check out this Ravens inspired display at Kokopelli (Level 4).
