Style Snap! FOX-y style on the set! Red hot off of the EMMYs red trend, I joined Ernie Anastos and In Style Magazine to talk trends, in none other than …. Red! Whether styled into your monochrome wardrobe (like my fellow segment panelist and In Style Editor, Kahlana Barfield) or flowing freely in a full on dress of fun (mine is from many seasons past BTW), here’s some camera red-y inspiration (cute pun intended)!

Style Snap: EMMYs! Red carpet indeed! The leading ladies of television put the R into ROYGBIV tonight! Can you say coral, red, fuchsia oh my? While there were signs of VMA’s silver sequined leftovers and an ode to summer white, bold color reigned supreme. There was primary power present in cobalt and yellow…but red led the pack! Just ask Heidi Klum in Zac Posen or Sarah Hyland in Christian Siriano if there’s a red note for every age! Julia Louis-Dreyfus and January Jones will say heck yeah!
Style Snap: VMAs! Trend alert! All that sparkles…was at the VMAs! But if you really want lessons in how to set off the silver siren alert, look no further than JLo and Kesha Rose! JLo just knows how to push the envelope while keeping it event and age(less) appropriate! Result: slaying the red carpet competition! Kesha’s red carpet (home) run streak continues with this perfectly body hugging beaded concoction! Safe to say they…NAILED IT!
Style Snap! Fade to white. Wearing my whites like they’re going out of style. Wait what?! Oh summer whites, do we dare part ways post Labor Day?! Luckily the answer can be a profound “No Way Jose”! I wear my whites all year long with absolutely no fear or regret! However there is an undeniable magic that summer brings so here are a few flouncy looks that I’ve been flashing around the New York City streets. My layered skirt comes via H&M and a coral peplum crop top adds freshness to my white pencil skirt from seasons past (via Topshop)! Both proudly from the “Under 100 Club”!
Style Snap: Getaway! Welcome to the post wedding pool party scene in Napa! August is the month to swim like it’s going out of style…or should I say because it’s totally in style! Loving my leopard Triangl INDY swimsuit set (backpack included), as my latest “Under 100 Club” member! It’s my third swimsuit from the Aussie label, why? The mileage for the money of course! I’m getting major bonus use out of my little leopard backpack, case in point when paired with my white crochet swimsuit via H&M (also WELL under $100)!
Style Side Note: Make menswear work for you! I grabbed my boyfriend’s Madison Pears pocket squares (amazing patterns in your pocket oh my) and made a makeshift poolside headscarf! Shades via Nordstrom Rack!Score!
Style Snap: Getaway! What have your friends done for you lately?! En route to Napa Valley’s Morimoto, I was reminded of what mine have done…and it involves Dolce & Gabbana! Yes, my Dolce dress is free! How’s that for the latest “Under 100 Club” member?! It turns out Shailene Woodley had it right when she said to me on the red carpet that her favorite place to shop is her friend’s closets! As you get your closets ready for Fall, check in with your gal pals, you may just end up with your own Dolce dress!
Style Snap: Getaway! Napa Valley, CA! Nothing says Napa style like navy, white, straw and stripes oh my! Welcome to the “Under 100 Club” you adorable, ruffled, patterned Mango dress, you! Sale find at under $35! YOWZA! My GILT-free Rebecca Minkoff handbag and Zara striped hat add the perfect polishing touches!
Style Side Note: Oh, and did I mention this outfit has my name on it? No, really! Thanks to my Carrie Bradshaw-esque nameplate by Jane Basch, my steals have the “Jackie” stamp of approval!
Style Snap Wedding! And now, an online shopping wedding fairy tale revealed! As the “Maid Of Honor” to my beautiful sister, now Mrs. Hoke, I have to say I’ve fallen even further in love with online shopping on a scale of bridal proportions! I styled three dresses, three guests, and all with a fit just right! Do I now take my computer to be there for me in sickness and in health for the rest of my life? I do!
Here’s the story:
Dress #1: always, always opt to be a ballerina bridesmaid! It was lust at first sight for the tulle ballerina dream that was to become my ML by Monique Lhuillier dress (a tad over $300 via Nordstrom)! With Nordstrom’s fail free customer service and easy delivery, I took a chance and followed my heart! Upon arrival, it fit just right! Score!
Dress #2: my absolute favorite bridal shopping secret of all as showcased by the “Maid Of Honor” understudy, Theodora Woolley, in a pastel blue chiffon dream. How about an under $200 ‘Taylor Swift like’ look, from one of my favorite celebrity look-a-like sites, TheCelebrityDresses.com?! Check!
Dress #3: because the mother of the bride lives the luxe life, and her ‘Grace Kelly like’ dress in a sunset colored haze, says so! This is the good stuff folks (Monique Lhuillier via BergdorfGoodman.com) and my mom, Joy Mangano looks every penny of it! Hot hot hot!
Style Side Note: Let’s not forget the online shoe find of the century. My Viktor & Rolf stilettos via Yoox.com, came at a steep discount, bows and all! Check mate! Score! Comfy too at 5 inches in the air!
Style Snap Wedding! Greek Gods unite! Rehearsal dinner bound in Napa Valley! Going for ‘Grecian Goddess’ level style in the “Under 100 Club” parameters certainly proves to be a challenge, but when it comes to fulfilling my ‘Maid Of Honor’ style duties, I’m up to the task. My bridal based online shopping tale (yes, I online shopped my whole ‘Maid of Honor’ wardrobe) begins with an out-of-this-world home run score. Oh, hello pastel Grecian maxi dress (by T Bags Los Angeles via The Outnet), meet my closet! Cashing in right on the line of $100 even, I hereby welcome this powdery perfect frock into my club!
Style Side Note: Braids = Divine! As proclaimed by the godlike ‘Glam Squad’ that created my look! Makeup by D’angelo Thompson/Hair by Steven Anderson.
