Look of the Day

Amber Venz Baxter Box Engaged Wedding

My fiancé and I are going to Mexico next weekend. As I began to pack his bag for our two-week trip, I realized that I have seen all of the same swim trunks and tee shirts in his vacation pictures since he was in college.

As a female in the fashion industry, I am always getting new clothes for parties and events, but his wardrobe has not benefitted from the same constant attention.

I have never really shopped online for mens clothing so I never realized how much less expensive mens clothes are than women’s! $500 got him about five full outfits; the same would get me a great maxi dress.

Here is what Mr. Mr. will be taking to Cabo:

PS: LastCall is having a SALE: 35% off of 1 piece or 40% off when you buy 4 or more pieces. They have some great basics for men; I stocked up on Vince cashmere for him.

The start of spring means that party season is upon us. As a working woman, I do not have a ton of time to scour party stores or the internet for picture-perfect party gear so I am thrilled about the new Target collaboration with fellow blogger, Oh Joy!. Joy really thought of every accessory and implement that you need to throw a Pinterest-worthy party. The entire collection coordinates so there is not a lot of thinking required.  Here are my favorite pieces:

Earlier this year, I was asked to curate and style spring and summer 2014 campaigns for H&M in partnership with ELLE magazine. After a few months of work, the campaign has finally launched! Today, you can go into any of the 300 H&M stores across the nation and see my curated selection of spring must-haves. There are hang tags on the clothes, posters and trend cards with styling tips that you receive at checkout.

Yesterday, I flew to New York to shoot a segment for EXTRA at the H&M Times Square location. Watch tonight at 7PM EST, 5:30 CST to see my talk through spring trends and share some advise on how to style the looks (click here for local listings).

Here are some behind the scenes shots from yesterday’s shoot:
