The Polish/Sandal Showdown

04.03.14


There ain't a showdown like a tootsy showdown. It's all about the pairing of polishes and sandals - getting prepped and primed to avoid a case of the much feared Spring Shambles! A loud color paired with fabby strappy footwear will be positively sure to grasp a good, jealous stare. Don't be afraid to go bold with it - because bold is brilliant and you can totes ROCK IT!

I dare you!!!

Making The Mundane Magnificent

04.02.14


Mundane-Magnificent.jpg

Why not celebrate the daily mundane - make magnificent of what is usually rather lame - by glorifying the conventional with little to no restrain. Might as well paint the garden red - turn weekly duties into a fanciful affair instead - put those gowns to use and knock 'em dead! A Mrs. never needs a reason for dressing to the nines - chores and things are so much better when you make them divine! You'll be absolutely amazed and decidedly delighted - that all things boring can so easily be blighted - when you give into the extravagant pleasure of being capriciously excited!

Spring Bling

03.24.14


Spring-Bling.jpg

I'm always so damn delighted by the onset of spring - the weather, the flora, and the baubles that it brings! I've selected a typical spring bling smattering - and slapped a few tips together to highlight how they're most flattering. So whether you need to unearth your spring staples from your bauble drawer - or need to run out and buy some more - here's my two cents on styling this season's blingy decor!

Make Mine A Midi

03.12.14


make-mine-a-midi.jpg

Nary a MRS has been scolded for cutting too ladylike a silhouette - and therefore an investment in a bevy of midi skirts wouldn't bring a sliver of regret. As grand as a maxi, yet more elegant than a mini - in walks the midi and kills it willy nilly! Paired with a suave chambray shirt that's been popped, cuffed + tucked - you've got yourself an ensemble that's tough to trump! If you haven't midi'd yet, well you should - this ladylike silhouette is fab and fab, my ladies, is GOOD!

Saved by the BELL

03.10.14


saved-by-the-bell.jpg

 When it feels as though fashion has lost its flair, you look to your closet with utter despair - shaking your fists in the air whilst screaming "I'VE GOT NOTHING TO WEAR!!!" Fret not, there BELL will save you, it's painfully fashionable and debonair! A bold dressing statement I so do declare - yet one that when executed properly will have you lookin' n' feelin' like a hot billionaire!  Take it from me, I'm a true BELL extraordinaire - I rock this look ferociously and confidently sans a care! So the next time your feeling fashionably blue and needing repair - run, don't walk, to the chicest bell and don them if you dare!!

Statement Sweaters & Tees

01.15.14


There's nothing more cheeky than a sassy statement sweater, or perhaps a statement tee in this sunny SD weather. I'm all about the clever tees and sweaters all the same...it's the on-cotton humor that drives me hysterically insane. So as I let out a ferocious giggle + share a few finds with you, I hope to spread some harmless humor onto you, too!!!

Toasty Tootsies (Warm Shoe Options)

01.13.14


During these brrr-y times when warmth is far more than a want but a need, the #1 option is to toast your tootsies in one of these (yes, please)! Guaranteed warmth, guaranteed chic...can you EVER go wrong with choices so sleek?! I must admit they've even got me quite weak in the knees!

Furry, metallic, leopard, or leather...take your pick but keep an eye on the weather. Over here in sunny SD, I rock metallic slip ons but perhaps they aren't entirely for thee!

So take a gander at my guilt-worthy gathering & decide on a pair that suits you. Then proceed to toast your hardworking tootsies in your fave pair (or two!)

Mrs. Lilien's Fall Uniform

10.22.13


MRSL-Fall-Uni.jpg

I'm having a fashion filled BALL this fall!! I mean what's not to love about a little wardrobe overhaul?! It's a time to celebrate the dark + playful - and anything in my closet that's comfy, fun + black has become an instant staple. With my post-baby physique still a little squishy - I'm happily embracing elastic waistbands + roomy sweaters to avoid looking + feeling piggy. That said, I've taken to mixing prints + textures - I'm instantly pulled together with printed leggings + an oversized sweater! Not only that but layering on the extra fab accessories - makes for a look that's teaming with playful pleasantries!  What ever the autumn day brings me or wherever the fall activity takes me - it's a uniform such as this that both delights + accomodates me!!

Sometimes all a gal needs is just a pinch of glam to spice up her day... or perhaps even change her life, come what may! Who's to say a dusting of blue eyeshadow won't add skip to your step?! Or, clipping on some ear bling wouldn't nourish you with zesty pep?! Lets face it friends, happiness lies within glammy bits + bobs - it's what separates the ladies from the knobs!! I've thus granted you permission to step up your glammy game - go on and try it on for size, I promise your life will never be the same!!!

DO IT!!!

Work It

10.14.13


work-it.jpg

It seems to be the perpetual fashion quandry - and more often than not the 'What to wear to work' is rarely answered with fashions that are spirited + jaunty! While I hold high court at Mrs. Lilien Headquarters, aka: my home - I'm not opposed to fantasizing about career wear, which is anything but lame monochrome. If I were to have the corner office with floor to ceiling views - you'd be hard pressed to find me in something that wouldn't delight + bemuse! I'd call it business-fab + it'd be anything but drab! I love a playful ensemble that screams chic confidence - strikingly fierce with just a sprinkling of opulence! So the next time you throw upon those closet doors and ponder 'what to wear to work' - toss on something playfully smart + don't dress like a jerk!

If you have yet to witness the always fabulous fashion sense of Blair Eadie of Atlantic-Pacific you, my friend, are missing out on something GIGANTIC! (but really) She's the gal that left me gawking over the above 'fits that I couldn't resist stalking. Seriously, it took over this Pinterest Board...go ahead, say what you're thinking, that i'm a total party skirt whore!! There's something about these oversized skirts that flaunt just the right amount of "poof"... it's an every-season fashion of which I whole-heartedly approve! And to my delight I came across a very subtle site of two sisters who solely make handmade party skirts, absolutely made my MRS night!!

ZIP IT

10.07.13


ZIP-IT-final.jpg

I'm sure by now you've seen someone all fall clad + looking rather chipper - you know what's adding the skip to their step?! They're sure as heck wearing a zipper!! That's right, zippers are hotter than poles are to strippers!! If you don't already have a zippy piece or two - you best get on the business cause you're totes overdue!! I own the above booties (hot damn) and something close to the zip back (wham) sweater - and, I'm waiting in the wings panting for some befitting fall weather!! Until that fateful day arrives I'll remain zipper happy - foraging + hoarding new zippy goodness to satisfy my heaving zipper fantasy!!

Bootie Time

Bootie-Time.jpg

When I think of fall foot fashion, I immediately think: BOOTIE!! Afterall, isn't it the official shoe for standing fall fahion duty?! I'm always so tickled how every year this silhouette gets re-imagined - there are usually new bells + whistles that I get to delight upon and examine. Last fall I purchased a fabulous pair of leopard print booties that totally rock my planet - and this year Mr. Lilien gifted me [these][1] black beauties which make me feel like one chic bandit! I'm proud of my ever growing bootie repertoire - no matter how post-baby flabby I feel, donning a pair makes me feel like a superstar!!
