Trend Report | Velvet

October 13, 2017


We’re crushing on velvet over here. Check out the latest styles that are reinventing the trend with new details.

Velvet Dresses | Check out this latest collection of dresses. Being an 80’s baby I’m definitely digging the 80’s looks that are on trend these days. And this long sleeve velvet frock is a perfectly on point for any holiday festivity.

Velvet Tops | I think this collection of velvet camis is perfect for the approaching holidays. Paired with denim or a skirt and even an added blazer and you are perfectly on trend. This green cami is calling my name. We all know cold shoulders are a popular go to and this navy number is a perfect velvet addition to any closet.

Velvet Bags | Even accessories are reinventing the trend. Check out these beautiful velvet bags. Im loving the contrast colors and the patterned handle on this velvet number.

Velvet Shoes | Slide your feet into a pair of velvety shoes. I bought these marigold mules which I have worn on repeat. The compliment so many more outfits than I would have ever expected.

Friday Five | Helping Hands

September 15, 2017

Hi! Long time no talk. As of just this week, there is somewhat of a sense of normalcy in the city LZ and I call home. It’s been a whirlwind to say the least, so I thought some regular Friday Five programming could be a nice distraction to all the readers who have been reeling from the recent devastations.

Have a great weekend.


back 2 school

August 13, 2017


I cannot believe that back to school is right around the corner. We have a big kindergartener in our house this year! Do you remember your kindergarten year?  All I can remember from mine is finger painting. Ha! I’m so excited for my first born to head to her new school in a week. What I do remember from my school-age days is how much I LOVED shopping for school supplies! What fun it was to get a new trapper keeper (dating myself over here!), pencils, folders, and outfits for the new school year. Here are some L. Avenue’s back to school finds for your kiddos’ new school year.

Friday Five | No Plan Plans

July 28, 2017

Sushi tonight and a Saturday spend poolside is my plan for this upcoming weekend with nothing on my calendar. The less phone interaction the better, but if you find yourself on yours, read these…

  • I would wear any of these outfits for a date night, but #1 is my favorite.
  • As summer’s end is in sight, I’m considering getting a gloss on my hair instead of full-on highlights. Here’s why. 
  • Sizes are already selling out of this McGuire jean style LZ featured on her Instagram stories earlier this week, so I snagged my pair!
  • I’m back on a barre kick, so I’m keeping these mistakes most of us make in mind.
  • So many summer treats make me nostalgic for childhood like push-up pops, Fla-Vor-Ice and ice cream sandwiches.

Have a great weeekend. Xx.

Friday Five | Sales, Sinks & Sparkling Water

June 23, 2017

010---DC3625The rain storms that hit Houston were impeccably timed if you ask me. After several whirlwind weekends in June and more to come in July, I’m so excited for every excuse to stay indoors with little to nothing to do. I hope you find some time to yourself to do the same, and if so, that these five reads entertain you.

Friday Five | Heat Wave

June 16, 2017


It’s really getting hot where we are, which means all the more reason to stay inside or poolside. Be sure to read these links while you’re at it!

  • They say this summer’s When Breath Becomes Air is The Bright Hour, which will tug at your heart strings just the same.
  • I can’t wait for my full-screen iPhone 8 debuting this fall. Read five rumors that are hopefully true.
  • A bowl makes almost any meal feel like comfort food. Read why this foodie appreciates the bowl fad.
  • Five must-visits in Mexico that aren’t Cabo or even the trendier Tulum.
  • Carolina Herrera’s spring resort collection is a classic circus color story. I’ll have #2 and #8, please!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend as always!


summer statement piece | Mignonne Gavigan

June 2, 2017

View More:

As we have seen I am a big fan of statement accessories in particular any accessory from Mignonne Gavigan’s killer statement collection.  Her designs are so unique and perfectly on point.  I fell in love with this scarf from her Summer 2017 collection.  Its bold summer colors are my jam. Pair it with a basic tee or this shirt and you’ve got an easy interesting ensemble.
