Chic Rock Glam in NYC's Time Square

I am obsessed with this caged neckline right now. I notice it every time I see someone rockin it. And that's just what this look is all about. A little bit of grunge, rock and roll with a little chic. I absolutely loved wearing this in my favorite city in the whole world, New York City. I was visiting about 6 weeks ago, introducing my baby boy, Brooks to the USA on Fox and Friends. It was such an honor! And bub wasn’t even phased by the lights, etc. I feel so lucky - Producers had my 3 month old on the telly for five different days. It was awesome. And here's a funny little tidbit... He did a massive poooooo live on the air that the microphones picked up. haha! It will be a great story to tell at his wedding one day. As for this look... The top is by People's Project LA. The sequin skirt is by Lavender Brown Clothing

 Kendrick Slaughter from KK Bloom styled me for this shoot and says, " Pairing a little grunge and glam is one of my favorite ways to style. I love to mix textures that compliment each other. New York is one of my favorite places in the world. It has a magic to it that is explainable. Anna's look is perfect for a casual night out. This skirt , would seem to most, way to dressy for the city streets. But, by pairing it with an unexpected distressed tee, it allows you to play with your look and wear it just about anywhere. Add some chunky gold jewelry to accessorize."

Rust Brown + Black = Chill

Rust brown is actually one of my favorite colors. I have a hard time finding it tho. So whenever I do... I pretty much buy it... whatever it is. My favorite way to wear rust brown/copper is with black. These black cutoffs are Rag and Bone. Simple. Good. I seem to wear this color combo when I'm in chill mode or going to a concert.

Saturday Jammin in Space Dye

Saturday jammin in space dye! Does that remind you of a certain Michael Jordan movie?! This outfit has me dancin' and so did that movie! I've been obsessed with space dye for ages! Space dye is cool because it gives the appearance of a strong texture and often it is smooth to the touch. This teal top is cool because it also fades from teal to white and switches to a flowy material at the bottom. It also has a peekaboo hole across the back. It is from Anthropologie. I paired them with casual, lace-up, suede shorts for a flirty earthy look. Here's your chance... do your dance... at the Space _____, alright!? FILL IN THE BLANK :-) Scroll down to shop the look!
