Hooray! It is Finally, Finally beginning to feel a little like fall. Don't get me wrong summer was great in all it's neon bright and floral glory, but I am ready for a little moodiness (ox blood, leather, brocade, etc). I'm a big fan of transitional dressing, mostly because it's the only time that the most unpractical items in your closet get utilized, e.g. this sheer long sleeved blouse. Any other time of year it would be too hot or too cold, but for now is just right.  I bet Goldilocks had a killer pre-fall wardrobe...SideSmile.

Best of 64th Prime Time Emmy's Fashion

Monday, September 24, 2012

Happy Monday everyone! I don't know about you all but watching award shows is one of my all time guilty pleasures. I love seeing all of the amazing fashions come down the red carpet, and tearing up at all of the acceptance speeches. This year I noticed two very different trends when it came to my favorite dresses. While Emily VanCamp, Sarah Hyland, and Ginnifer Goodwin earned their way on to my best dressed list with their subtle elegance and gorgeous neutral tones, Allison Williams, Emilia Clark, and Julie Bowen won me over with their gowns modern shapes and bold color pallets. Who were y'alls favorites?

*I also think it is worth noting Sarah Hyland's hair, which was styled using an Amika curling iron, was my absolute favorite of the night. AND she co-designed her dress with Georgina Chapman...my girl crush has exponentially grown.

Passport to Style: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil!

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

Greetings Travelers!
You may have noticed my recent partnership with Kristin Hassan, and I'm sure you've taken note of her new program Passport to Style: World Tour 2012! Passport to Style is a fresh and exciting experience that will be bringing you almost a dozen different jewelry collections via a virtual trip around the world! Each city will be hosted by a guest blogger "Tour Guide", and guess what...I'm your Tour Guide for the tour's ninth destination, Rio!

Kristin sent me a huge package filled to the brim with jewelry, all inspired by the vivacious hot spot. I have always wanted to travel to South America, and wearing all of these fun Rio inspired jewels is the next best thing to booking a flight!

I'm so excited to style up an outfit with Brazilian flair! My first look is what I would wear to tour Rio. I wanted to be comfortable, but stick to the bright color pallet of all of the jewelry!

I've been on a kind of big bun kick lately. It is just such an easy way to look chic...
without having to shower. You guys know I don't always leave that much time for 
myself to get ready in the morning. I've been thinking about doing some beauty 
slash hair tutorial posts, such as How to do a teased bun in under 5 minutes. Is that something y'all would like to see me post more of on SideSmile? I aim to please!

Camo Time

Monday, September 17, 2012

Happy Monday everyone! In today's post I am wearing my new camo pants that I picked up at the NYC Zara store last week. I am also wearing, what has recently become, my favorite necklace combination of these two from J.Crew and Madwell. They're sparkly and spiky...and I love it :) Are you guys into layering your jewelry, or do you like a simpler approach?

Polka Stripes

Saturday, September 15, 2012

After being in NYC last week, I found myself inspired by all of the pattern mixing I witnessed all over the city. I got these polka dot loafers from Gap, while on my trip and couldn't wait to try them out. I love the combination of black, white, and red; so I decided to pair them with the 7FAM jeans I got at the Piperlime Store opening. What are some of y'alls favorite pattern combinations?

Bag Bench

J.Crew and Madewell Spikes  
At the suggestion of Bethany I paired my two favorite necklaces from J.Crew and Madewell together, and the result is my favorite jewelry combo of the trip!

Beauty and Essex  
Our first night in the city we dined at Beauty and Essex. I highly recommend it, IF you can find it!  The front of the restaurant doubles as an upscale pawn shop. Make sure you order the mac & cheese dumplings, you won't be sorry (even if your waistline is).

Diana Vreeland Documentary Screening  
Style of Sam, Bethany and I were lucky enough to see a prescreening of the new Diana Vreeland Documentary.

Cocktails at NoHo Star  
Fashions night out cocktails at Noho Star. The outdoor seating proved for excellent people watching in Soho!

Lucky FABB Conference NY

Tuesday, September 11, 2012
First off, let's just get this out of the way. I was kind of a bad blogger while I was in NY. I was so busy I did not manage to adequately capture my Lucky FABB outfit for a post. However, I plan on rectifying that later this week and reshooting it here in Columbia. Anyhow I did manage to obtain a few pictures from the conference, hopefully next time I will be less star struck and more on my game :)

Rachel Zoe  
Rachel Zoe's interview was such a thrill. I have always been a huge fan of her. She was the first person that made it ok for me to be over the top obsessed and in love with fashion.

Lauren Conrad  
Lauren Conrad's interview, while a little stiff, was still very informative. Apparently her famous cat-eye eyeliner can be attributed to the fact that she "looks weird with eyeshadow" and her sock buns are a result of "sheer laziness". If only my fashion short cuts proved to be so stylish!

Man Repeller  
The Man Repellers dramatic entrance (she had gotten caught in traffic).

Anna Sui and Simon Doonan  
Simon Doonan's interview of Anna Sui was by far my favorite of the day! He is as charming in person as he is in his books and Barney's interviews

Lucky FABB Gift Bag

Pipa Chandeliers  
The atmosphere at Pipa's tapas bar was so visually amazing. There were at least 20 chandeliers on display!

Blogger Dinner at Pipa
I had the best time at dinner with Mary Beth, Sam, Bethany, and Lindsey. By far one of the highlights of my trip!
