Yesterday I stopped into the new A'maree's on Coast Highway in Newport Beach!
This fabulous fashion house is now at home in one of Newport's most memorable buildings!
This location is SPECKtacular and they really nailed the interiors! 
The new store is located at 2241 West Coast Hwy in Newport Beach ~ see more at

Romance day & night

 I chose ruffles for day and lace for evening to create these two feminine looks!

Jacket & shoes are BCBG Max Azria, Vintage hat, a necklace I made, paired with a lace tee, linen shorts and nude fishnets complete this feminine day look!

A soft pink lace bodysuit I found at forever 21, inspired this outfit, I added thigh high tights, took a knit shawl and pinned it on as a skirt, added a Ralph Lauren Hat and satin mary jane's for my evening look!

Old~school Glam!

These trail~blazers of their day really showed us how its done! Liz, Rita & Sophia!
the supreme seductress!

the heavenly goddess

the mysterious madame

the art of display

Accessories are the jewelry of a room, and artful display makes ALL the difference! Here are a few examples that really work.
I love this sleek clock perched on some vintage books & reflecting in the mirror A+!

A beautifully appointed desk makes you want to work! I saw this gorgeous bird in NYC
the last time I visiting and I  thought it had a perfect perch!
This room was clearly designed by a MIX-MASTER

Pairing like colors and adding accents, displaying your objects d'art just so, and adding the unexpected!

Brainchild! This is a clever and elegantly designed space ~ I adore the cut crystal decanters on display
and being used as pendant lighting! Brilliant!

With this silver-leafed ornate console table and mirror, these sleek accessories are the perfect compliment
