Fash Fave / Fail Friday

Fash Fave - Rachel Zoe


Super Stylist Rachel Zoe stepped out for her weekly Rodeo shopping spree with her baby and bestie in tow. I think it's pretty safe to assume if cameras capture Rachel between the days of Monday and Thursday, she'll most likely be my Fash Fave. I'm obsessed... I can't help it. Flared denim and loose fitting tops are Zoe essentials. Add a luxurious fur coat, a beret and a classic luxe tote by The Row and this look has Rachel's signature all over it. Not to mention, I'm totally obsessed with the leather cuffs. I recently got a set of my own from Bolbach, and I can't wait to show you how I styled them! The edgy accessory is definitely a new must. What do you think of RZ's fabulous fur trench?

Fash Fail - Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi


Holy pint sized personality. Is it just me or does Snooki look like she just got hit by Bret Michael's tour bus? What exactly was she going for here? Hipster at the zoo? Or a biker celebrating Valentine's Day? Either way the MTV reality star is showcasing exactly why proportions are so crucial to an ensemble. I'm the queen of oversized jewelry but when your earrings are big enough to play frisbee, you've gone too far. I'll be honest, I love Nicole and insane outfits like this make me love her even more, but when it comes to stepping into the heels of a fashion critic, likability takes a backseat. Normally I would suggest ways to fix this fail but other than the leather jacket I don't see any pieces worth saving. Snooki, do yourself a favor and hire a stylist.  This zebra catastrophe is a definite Fash Fail. Thoughts? 


The super sweet ladies over at Those4Words wrote an amazing blog post about my engagement story. I'm always honored to be featured by other bloggers. I'm so excited to be apart of their site and I urge you all to check it out! You can read the fabulous write up about our engagement here. Xo

  4. Rachel Zoe is always impeccable! She's been always such a huge
    style inspiration to me and I believe many, many girls around the world.

    Snooki... Well, she shouldn't ever even be considered as part of any
    lists of best or worst dressed ones, since she's of a "special" kind as the
    most horribly dressed person to walk the Earth.

  25. RZ does no wrong. I need her to return to Bravo ASAP. I would even go for a little marathon on previous seasons! Oh Snooks...I love you but this is just wrong. She definitely has her own style and I don't expect the simple chic fashion of Pippa Middleton from her but I've seen her do better.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Adorable picture of the two of you! And what was snooki thinking when she put that outfit together! She looks terrible! HOpe you have a wonderful weekend!

  27. You are correct! Rachel = amazing! Snooki = drives me bananas!

    She's a fashion fail, but I still love her haha.

    Also, I went over and read your engagement story and want to say congrats! You're a lucky girl. I can't wait to read about the wedding plans!

  34. RZ's coat is TO DIE FOR! I love her fashion style. GLAM CHIC.

    Snooki lives in her own little world. I think she'll regret a lot of her fashion choices when she gets older.

  38. Really, not a big fan of either but at least Rachel looks put together.

    And Snooki? I'd save the boots and the jacket and throw the rest away. I'm all for big earrings (if worn right, can actually draw attention to your face) but those are way too big. She's so pint size that she's lost in this ensemble. I'm with you: Snooki HIRE A STYLIST!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oh dear, I love watching Jersey Shore but what is Snooki wearing!?!

    ReplyDelete
  41. We could expect anything from Snooki! She doesn't surprise me...
    I don't like the fact that Rachel wears real fur! God, why do they have to kill 20 baby seals just for you to wear a coat?

  45. Snookie, Snookie, Snookie. That's all I can say ;) haha. Rachel looks amazing! And I just wish Snookie would class it up every now and again, I saw some story on her without a bunch of eye make-up and she looked so pretty! It is a shame to cover up her beauty with her style (or lack there of) and heavy make up.

    Congrats on the engagement story post, so cute! :) I really enjoyed reading your post about your engagement when I first started following your blog!

    Snooki on the other hand??! She could definitely use some help! She needs to contact a stylist asap! She could look really cute if she tried!

  56. Snooki is a train wreck.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Each episode of Jersey Shore brings a new heinous and ridiculous outfit from one of the bunch. J Woww should probably just walk around naked at this point. Love Rachel Zoe's fur coat and love even more that she has someone to carry her baby in the background of that shot! If only we could be so fabulous...

    ReplyDelete
  58. Couldn't agree with you more that Snooki was unfortunately hit by Bret Michaels' tour bus. Rachel Zoe always a fashion fave!!

    Thanks SO much for the mention Anna!! We love that we were able to feature such a beautiful wedding proposal on our blog!!

  59. Haha, so funny about the 'Bret Michael's tour bus comment.' That outfit is so bad and I can't believe she is pregnant. That's going to kill her image on Jersey Shore, she's gonna have to clean up her act or no one will like her. lol. AND OMG, those leather cuffs on RZoe are amazing. Have a great weekend and congrats on your engagement feature on Those4Words. I'm gonna have to check them out!

  62. Love this. Thanks for the intro to BOLBACH. So LA... Everything cutting edge is LA. Who is your fav photographed Fri-Sun... I feel like I should know this?? Also, I'm not gonna lie. My favorite RZ accessory might be the "baby carrier." How cool would that be to go shopping with your baby hands free?!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I check your blog so many times just to see do you allready have a new post:-) I just started write in english too :-)

    ReplyDelete
  64. I am hugely into the Zoe look...I can't pull it off, but I love her layers and beanies and chic bags. The fur trench is amazing!

    And as for Snooki? I'd like to see her ever NOT fail at fashion. It's not really her thing, I don't think.

  65. Omg, when I saw Fash Fail with a picture of Rachel I almost cried. I should've known better. You would never ever put the Zoe in that category. I mean who would? She is so fabulous! I love how she has the best two accessories; a Berkin and her adorable son. As for Snooki. Ugh, the way she dresses doesn't even deserve words. Please get it together Snooks.

  75. Gosh why do I love Rachel Zoe's style so much. I am more of a classic minimalist but Rachel's personal style really does it for me. She is so slim and manages to find the the best proportioned looks. As for Snooki once I compose myself from your hilarious critique I have to say she looks like she is trying way too hard. Sometimes less is more and she should definitely try this approach.
