The Floor Report: What Miss M Wants Now

Jan 12, 2011

After the Holiday rush of gift-giving and party hopping, all I want is to cure the chills with a little retail therapy.  I get stuck in a rut being indoors with dry air, dry hair, and Spring fashion seems so far, far away.  The least I can do is dream on about the things I wish I had in my closet. 

With all the cashmere in full rotation along with leggings, legwarmers and skinny jeans tucked into boots during the cold, wet weather, of course new accessories make everything better and bit more wintery glam.

Ioselliani Bangle (Les Pommettes, $425)

How fab if I layered the bangles and watch together on the same wrist! One of my favorite combinations.

Michael Kors Blackout Watch (MK, $495)

This top is a two-for-one. Layer over a long black racerback tank and grey skinny jeans now, throw on over your black bikini or a tight black skirt when June rolls around. 

Thayer Fabu Cover Up (ShopBop, $215)

I am loving the maxi skirt trend right now. Tuck in a knit tank or thin cashmere short-sleeved sweater and choose a tailored blazer to top it all off.  Slouchy boots in a neutral color complete the look. 

Rachel Pally Long Skirt (ShopBop, $198)

Can’t go all the way to the floor? – this is a hot compromise. Not too short, not too long  – a skirt for all seasons. 

ALC Ruched Jersey Skirt (Intermix, $310)

Belle and I have both been craving a black jean lately. These are my supreme pick. Flare is back.

J Brand Lovestory in Black (Piperlime, $200)

For a quick shot of color and hydration, this Laura Mercier Lip Velvet formula is not only long-wearing and anti-aging, but leaves lips soft with a perfect finish. 

Laura Mercier Lip Velvet (Saks, $22)

**You know a product is good when they won’t let you buy more than six of them every 30 days due to high demand.**  

Belle knows better than anyone how much I love hats  – especially ones that don’t mess up my hair and keep my ears warm in the cold. This new addition to my wardrobe is a classic. 

 

 

Burberry Check Print Newsboy (Nordstrom, $250)

Miss M is a stylist and a retail consultant who lives in Bethesda.  She takes pieces that most people would never, ever wear and makes wearing it seem as natural as breathing.  That’s style.  And it makes Belle sick *wink*.

    I know! I am totally asking for that watch for my birthday. I've been wanting one, since I stopped wearing one years ago, and I was thinking about his tortoise shell one, but not anymore!

    I love the jersey skirt!

  8. Norwegianette says:

    I love how Miss M's style is so different than your style (which is closer to my type thing), but it still really appeals to me. Always makes me want to try out things that I otherwise wouldn't have thought of. Can you please beg Miss M to do posts with entire outfits every so often?

  9. Belle says:

    Norwegiannette-

    I wish, I keep trying to get her to start her own site, but we never get past “What do I call it?”

    I'll keep working on her though!

    LOVE that watch. I bought the less expensive version at Walmart (their George line, which isn't half bad) for $10 on sale, and get compliments every time I wear it.

The Range: Eyelet Tops for Summer

Airy eyelet fabrics are one of my favorite spring/summer looks. White is, of course, the traditional fabric. But white is tough to wear when you have a toddler, so let’s go with navy this summer.
