Memorial Day is right around the corner and everyone needs a hot summer hat to sport at the BBQ’s! I found this amazing BCBG hat with “sunglasses” on the rim and absolutely love it! You can actually see out of the frames of the sunglasses and the hat comes down far on face so that the sunglasses are at your eye line! Super kitschy and so unique for a pool party!

Anthropologie is killing it this season with the cutest dresses for spring! I am so obsessed and wanted to put a list together of my favorite finds for Mother’s Day darling dresses. All of them are uber feminine and would be perfect for a family brunch or get together! What is your favorite?
Rosamund Midi Dress
I am sooo obsessed with lace and this hot backless red lace dress is sure to be a show stopper for the hostess with the mostest! Its a bit fancy without being over the top and above all super duper fun for a sultry spring soiree! This backless red lace dress can be found at Urban Outfitters and is so on your young, broke and fabulous budget! Grab this find for $79.00! Pair with fab gold wedges and you are set!
I love these Sole Society sparkle flats for the hostess with the mostest! They are super cute and totally on your budget at $49.95! These shoes are perfect for all your spring and summer garden parties! I always prefer flats over heels and these are a top pick for they are wonderfully dainty while still making a statement! They are whimsical, fun, funky and fresh!
Coachella is coming up and everyone in LA is gearing up for a crazy weekend in the dessert. Of course, this crazy weekend is not only about the music but also about the fashion and most definitely not about camping in the dessert! Pa-lease! You need to be oh so boho chic for this glorious music fest and I have found just the bag for your travels! Your gonna need a lot of water and other things to conceal in the bag soo this large leather strapped H and M bag to the max is perfect! I love the colorful tassels against the black and white pattern. Perfect for the Coachella fashion scene! And the best part? It is oh soooo on your budget at $24.95! You will probably have to throw your bag away at the end of the trip so go for something fun, funky and cheap!
The Perfect Party Belt
I am obsessed with bows and pink so this little number really hits the spot! What a fun accessory for spring and summer! This Ted Baker bow belt also comes in a FABtastic yellow to brighten up any outfit! Now, this belt is a bit of a splurge worthy item but it can be worn with so many things and really will make any outfit stand out! A good hostess needs a pink bow belt right? I found this belt at Asos.com for 64.84 which is much less than what you will pay at a department store! Uhhh sooooo in love!
I wore this Ted Baker bow belt on Good Day LA last week and everyone absolutely loved the way it looked. It is a show stopper for sure!
Anthropologie Jardim Lace Dress
Last weekend LA was a buzz with Oscar parties and so I made my way to the Montblanc Pre- Oscar Party Brunch on Saturday at the Bel Air Hotel. It was absolutely wonderful with the best food, champagne and of course stars! The decor was very garden party brunch esq and I had to find the perfect party dress to compliment the affair! Que the Anthropologie Jardim Lace Dress! The minute I saw this pink floral lace number I knew it was perfect and I was head over heels! This dress is a SPLURGE worthy item coming in at $298.00 but so worth it if you will be going to a lot of garden parties this spring or weddings! Honestly it is one of the prettiest dressed on the market and can be worn to an array of gatherings!
Sole Society Bow Heels
I am so obsessed with bows and a good deal and these shoes have both! These Sole Society bow heels are to die for and only $59.95! What a steel! The dark beige will go with everything this spring and add a cuteastic factor that every good hostess needs! I have also worn these shoes and know that they are super comfy and look great on! The silver trimming adds a little pizzaz to the suede shoe and definitely makes them more fun!
Good Day LA
Yesterday, I went on Good Day LA to model some Valentines Day fashion finds with style expert Jamie Krell! I had such a great time and got to rock some awesome bow shoes from Sole Society and absolutely love everything they do! Its my new obsession. Sole Society delivers the hottest shoe trends to your door at affordable prices. I’m talking the cutest shoes ever for $49.00! Yup! Most of their shoes, and all trendy and fab, are usually $49. Honestly such a great find!
H and M Striped Dress
Be bold this new year in a fun black and white striped dress from H and M! This number will definitely make you a hit at any party. If you got, it flaunt it girl! Pair with a great black and gold studded purse and heels for a killer look!
This striped dress screams sexy jail maven for Valentines Day! Just a thought!
If ever there was a time to take sparkle to the next level, its New Years Eve! The Violent Lips Glitteratti Collection of lip “tattoos” are super cray cray and so holiday appropriate! You will definitely stand out with your sultry lips! Don’t worry, The Hostess Handbook wouldn’t lead you astray, these “tattoos” are not permanent!
If these are not the most amazing party shoes, I don’t know what is! They are also super festive for the holiday season! Give me bows and glitter and I am in heaven! However, these are definitely a splurge worthy item and I’m saying roll out the big bucks. If it makes you feel any better they were originally $450 and now down to $315! My advice? Keep an eye on these bad boys and grab them when they go on sale even more! Uhhhhh great find! You can buy these Red Valentino glitter pumps at SAKS...of course!
This winter, make a big bow hit with this H and M burgundy dress! I love this look because it can be worn to the office and to a party! No need to run home to change and make yourself crazy. Wear this all day and night no problem! I also just loves bows so when I saw this bow dress I swooned! It also comes in black but I am really partial to the burgundy because the bow stands out more! This bow dress is super cute and so on your budget at under $20!
Part of being the hostess with the mostest is looking the bestest! These party dresses are super cute and span a wide range of styles from the more conservative red pleated dress to a flirty, fun sequined number to a sweet relaxed heart cut out dress! You will definitely be the center of attention at your bash in any of these choices. They are also so on your budget spanning from $49 to $125!
This Zara red holiday dress is super cute and a classic style for the festive season! I would wear this to any holiday party or when hosting my own. I think this is a perfect choice out of our holiday dresses and find it simply stunning! This comes in at $99.
This sequin number from Urban Outfitters is fun and flirty while achieving a relaxed look which can be worn for any holiday occasion! This will run you $125!
I am obsessed with hearts and love cut out backs so this Urban Outfitters dress is my absolute dream. It is also pretty casual so it is appropriate for any occasion. The black holiday dresses are such a plus with some full bellies over the holidays. Don’t stop eating all your holiday goodies, just wear black! This comes in at our lowest price- $49!
It finally feels like fall here in LA and I am so ready for some classic cold weather attire. However, my good friend Laurie Graham, of Laurie Graham Style, won’t let me wear just any old sweater and jeans. Nope, I gotta be up on all the new fall fashion trends and now so can you!
Tip # 1
A young and fun holiday look can be achieved by pairing red velvet jeans with a classy zebra print!
Tip # 2
A bronze leather jacket is a perfect fall item to wear with any outfit. The color looks great with oranges, browns and reds, which are so abundant in this season!
Laurie loves these metallic gold jeans! They are super cute and unique with a three dimensional look. These are great for fall and the holidays! Pair with a cream or white fur vest, jacket or sweater for a stunning winter ensemble! Pick these jeans up at 7 for All Mankind !
