The term, minty fresh just took on a whole new meaning! Fresh is right friends!

Dieing, obsessing, and totally addicted to this shade for spring. Pastels are the perfect refreshing colors to lighten up your look, and this mint shade has us more excited for a color than we have been in a long time.

Oscar Sunday.

The ladies at the Academy Awards last night definitely did one thing right. They brought true hollywood glamour to the red carpet. This is movie star. And these were the 3 ladies that took our breath away...

Gwenyth Paltrow was everything in Tom Ford. Best dressed of the night. Cape included.

Not too sure just anyone could pull off this look, but there was something about Michelle Williams in this Louis Vuitton gown that made me want to pick her up and put her pretty little self in my pocket. She looked like a dolly. The layered peplum detail, the femininity, the perfect little bow... super sweet and elegant.

Milla Jovovich nailed it. Really, truly, just down right nailed it. This is how you do the Oscar red carpet. Perfect hair, perfect lip, perfect accessorizing. Perfect in Elie Saab.

maxi must.

The end of February is a time we start getting antsy. The hustle of Christmas, New Years Eve, and Valentines Day is over. The display of Fashion Week makes us a little bored with our winter frocks we've been donning the past few months, and the spring lines entering the stores have us craving the sun and lighter + brighter fabrics.

A favorite of ours that we can't wait to wear once the weather warms up?  

Maxi dresses and skirts.  

Flowey, floor-grazing style; maxi dresses are easy to pull off no matter what your body type. There are great variations of pieces you can wear with them. Creating casual or glam looks are easily done with a maxi. Add in a tank, a loose-fitting top, a cropped leather jacket, the possibilities are endless.

This spring, maxis are a must have.

Pops of neon.

Pops of neon are our lust-must for spring. These bright shades are popping up everywhere in clothing, bags, and accessories. We can't get enough of these electric hues, especially the coloration found in home decor. 
Awaken your home this spring!

NYFW street treats.

With New York Fashion Week come and gone you can hit up the internet to find many sites with images from the spectacular shows we saw this past week. Though we definitely have our few favorites from the runways, one of our most loved aspects from this past week of fashion display was the incredible street style we saw. 

Fashionites from all over strutted the streets of NYC in some of the greatest inspirational looks we have seen this season.

Leather. Fur. Pops of color. Winter whites. And so much more.

Here are a few of our favorites.



M.A.D. Gossip

Good morning upper east siders {and everyone else too!}. Gossip Girl here. Your one and only source into the scandalous lives of Manhattan's elite... and stylish!

Spotted: Georgina Sparks {Michelle Trachtenberg} wearing some fab M.A.D. pieces in Monday's episode!

Check out the Amy studs + Iva ring in the clip above.

It has been long decided that "IT" girl, Serena van der Woodsen can pretty muchwell pull off any look. Rocker-glam, boho-chic, you name it. Seeing her layer with the M.A.D. Wooden Pave Spike and
Mini Jeweled Goddess necklaces would make us weak in the knees.

And Ms.Waldorf, former Queen B of Constance and most recently, Princess of Monaco always deserves the royal treatment. M.A.D. Stella earrings are fashion royalty.{go-to headband not included!}
