Ladylike Rockstar:

Jennifer Fisher has done it again.  Notorious for her edgy yet glamourous jewels (seen adorning the necks, wrists and fingers of Rihanna, Miley Cyrus and Anne Hathaway to name just a few), these XL Triangular Studs are the perfect combo of street meets chic.  I’ve never seen studs where the proportion actually makes them look ladylike.  This style comes in plated 14K yellow gold, rose gold and silver.  A color for every mood!

Denim For Days:

BR flat

I purchased these Banana Republic Ashley Bow Ballet Flats FULL price last week, and now only through tomorrow they’re 50% off (natch!).  Too good of a deal not to share.  And right on track with the all denim trend, feel free to wear them with your blue jeans or denim shirt.  My tip in that department though is to try to vary the denim shades that you pair together.  And keep it to three items, max!

Trench Time:

Luckily it’s almost time to shed those Winter coats and start wearing lighter weight ones.  One of my favorite pieces types of outerwear that can tie an outfit together and make it look polished, is a trench.   I tend to keep mine open for a more flattering look.  I also think they happen to look cute paired with sneakers–a welcome change from snow boots!

And now a few of my favorites:

J.Crew:  This Icon trench is what I’m wearing here.  It’s classic, lined and super chic.  Definitely an investment worth making.

Banana Republic:  I love the length of this jacket.  It’s sort of a modern day twist on the classic trench.

SAM:  I love the material of this one, the color, and the flattering factor .  The waist cinches and the hood is removable.

Topshop:  If you’re in the market for a “different” version of the trench, this is for you.  The pale grey color is beautiful for Spring and it still is available in most sizes–rare for TS!

Burberry:   No doubt about it, this one is a major splurge.  But the details are divine and really make this trench stand out, studded leather belt and all.

Always Alala:

How is it not running outside weather yet?!

The mesh inserts look good while keeping you cool.

I’ve mentioned Alala before–only my favorite brand of workout clothing–but this time there’s new product to be had and at a discounted price for my readers.  I’m somebody who enjoys getting dressed in the morning, and on days that I’m able to squeeze in a workout, chances are I’m wearing those clothes for the entire day.  I want to feel good while sweating, and feel good while carrying on with my day.  Very few brands infuse style with functionality the way Alala does.  I recently put this Clutch Tank to the test, paired with the Captain Ankle Tight.  Bizarrely enough, I never owned full length black workout pants.  I’ve been wearing cropped ones all Winter (yes, freezing my butt, err, ankles off) so these came as a much needed rescue.   They’re not just basic black, but there are mesh inserts up and down the legs.  The waistband is on the higher side, making it extremely comfortable.  And of course there’s a zipped pocket along the back.  The tank has the matching mesh along the top, tying the whole look together.

From today until March 31, cocoincashmere readers will receive 25% off of all purchases with the code COCOCASHMERE25.  

Whether you’re into exercising, or just into wearing extremely flattering gear, take full advantage!
