Fash Fave / Fail Friday

Fash Fave - Jessica Alba


Jessica Alba stepped out recently looking chic from head to toe. I absolutely adore her black on black ensemble. The detail of her top offers the perfect contrast to her leathery skirt. The busy working mother accessorized her ensemble with lots of handbags and totes, a black scarf, teal sunnies and of course sky high Christian Louboutin heels. To say I'm obsessed with this look would be an understatement. I wonder if Jessica's dapper stylist, Brad Goreski had his super stylish hands on this amazing outfit. Tights are a great way to make your short skirts look more appropriate and add a little extra fash. Thanks for the inspiration Jess. 

Fash Fail - Drew Barrymore


The adorable Drew Barrymore strolled through Paris this week rocking a fashion meets front lines ensemble that has sadly landed her on my fash fail list. With the amount of cargo pockets between the two of them, this couple could easily double as a filing system. I'm counting four on his jacket alone.  Don't get me wrong Drew, I love your choice in denim and your striped handbag but both are statement pieces that should dominate a simple ensemble. This combination paired with the digny Army accessories just isn't working. You're in Paris for goodness sake, this is how a couple in Paris should look. xo

 I was recently approached by Brink Magazine to give my Spring style tips for their February/March issue and I of course jumped at the opportunity! I've been having a serious "pinch me, how is all of this happening" feeling for the last few weeks and amazing honors like this only remind me of how incredibly blessed I am. Thanks for reading, ladies. It's because of your support that so many doors are opening.

  11. Weirdest comment about Jessica Alba, but maybe SOMEONE will agree with me! She has the best style. Always fashion forward, and never about looking "hot." But she's got a BANGING body, I get that she's more fashion-concious, but she should wear some more flattering pieces, at the same time, more often! She's always cutting off her leg with booties, or wear loose pants, or a boxy dress.

  38. Congratulations on the article and opportunity!

    Jessica Alba always looks so chic. Even when she goes outside of the box, her style is so effortless.

    Oof, I think those pants on Drew make her look shorter, they seem to widen her legs and not in a flattering way. Perhaps if she picked one of the items she was wearing and styled around that...

  64. First off CONGRATS on the feature I love all of your personal style advice I totally agree with everything you said. Also I can't really appreciate Jessica Alba's ensemble because of all of the bags she is carrying but I agree with your sentiments on the look itself. Drew Barrymore poor thing she seems to be trying to incorporate so many trends into one outfit, Nautical stripes, bright denim and cargo and it just is a clashing mess. You are right she should have let the denim stand out with the bag and paired the statement pieces with a simple T-Shirt a'la Alexander Wang or LNA

  65. I love Jessica Albert's outfit! She has so much black, yet it doesn't look too dark using different variety of patterns and material, I absolutely love it!

  67. Jessica Alba always has such great outfits and she's a mother who I always look up to for her style. So difficult choosing outfits when you know you have to run after a child and expect to have food thrown at you :( and the magazine definitely went to the right person for style advice xx
