I’ve always wanted an Elva Fields necklace, ever since seeing one on a friend a few years back. The color, the composition…it was all just heaven to me. So imagine my excitement when I was invited to be March’s Leading Lady and get to design a necklace with Emily herself! She sent me images of pieces and arrangements based on the inspiration board I sent and in the end, designed 2 necklaces that I would have been proud to own! Chad made the final decision and the final result is a work of genius! Thanks so much Emily for having me take part! You can read about the entire process here.

Three cheers for Gwyneth Paltrow’s Oscar number! Her ode to Jackie Kennedy’s 1961 inaugural ball ensemble was such a refreshing change of scenery from a red carpet that often consists of a barrage of all-too-similar asymmetrical gowns. I thought it’d make a perfect choice for a daring bride. I’ve had my eye on Antonio Berardi’s cream cape from his pre-fall 2011 collection for some time now and since Gwyneth’s Tom Ford version isn’t available to, well, non-Gwyneth Paltrows, it just might do the trick. I paired it with some bright accents.

Taking a cue from the recent Fashion Week shows, I’ve compiled a trove of silver plated footwear. Metallics have been popping up on the runway and will sure to be popping up come Fall and Winter 2012. A single silver pop on the feet give the trend a modern, refined element. – Tram @ Phi-Style.com
