The Fall 2018 collections are an impressive mix of classics like plaid, animal prints, and tailored suiting -- indicative of our strong women’s empowerment movement that’s happening right now. However, these classics have undergone a modern transformation fueled by a love of '80s maximalism and designers have added a luxe twist to everything from ready-to-wear to accessories. As a result, we’re seeing an abundance of faux fur, metallics (especially silver), high gloss (aka patent leather), ruffles, embellishments, and designer logos. To sum up the mood, it’s all about balancing the strong and powerful with the ...Read more.
I love Kendra Scott. Her and her jewelry. Kendra is one inspiring woman, entrepreneur and mom. And, if you aren't familiar with her story, it's a good one. She started her jewelry business when she was a 19-year-old new mom with $500 in her spare bedroom and grew it into the billion-dollar company it is today. Kendra runs the business by the values of "Family, Fashion & Philanthropy," and believes firmly that family (her family and every employees') must come first. This resonates throughout the company along with giving back to the community. (To hear more from Kendra herself, watch my interview with her from a ...Read more.
Red carpet season officially kicked off this week with the 70th Annual Emmy Awards! Our favorite stars were in the mood for romance in ethereal gowns. Pink was a popular color choice, from pastel to magenta. We also saw monochromatic looks in white and always-sophisticated black, plus a number of plunging necklines that left little to the imagination and more elegant strapless gowns.

However, at MSL we prefer to focus on the positive, so here are the ladies on our best-dressed list. ...Read more.

We all have a story to tell. Our personal style is one way we communicate who we are without saying a word. Our look may change with our moods, but certain elements of our style stay constant. Some of us gravitate towards tailored looks. Others to feminine or boho. And, still others to whimsical or eclectic. I lean towards tailored and feminine myself. I rarely pass up a structured blazer, beautiful lace dress or ruffled top, as my closet will attest. Our jewelry is the frosting we add to complete our look. It is key to creating a unique personal style and telling our story. And, who better to help us shape our style ...Read more.
