Color Me Fabulous the Boutique W Way

Color Me Fabulous the Boutique W Way

Window shopping @GreenspringStation inspires your desires to add vivacious colors to your closet and your complexion.

Your go-to #springaccessory – ideally – should liven up your look, especially when you don’t quite have that summer glow yet. Kill the chill with his ultra-pink #pashmina style scarf, reinvented by model, Gigi Hadid. It’s light as air for those spring evenings. To further get your glow on, capture classic style and #changebags to coordinate your stylish moves.

Throw on a refreshing shade of aqua around the neck to complete this palate of perfection. Slip in an #oversizedclutch to add perfect coolness to any cold-shoulder #Tribal tee and #Liverpooljeans look. Wide leg cropped style with unfinished business at the hem is so haute. Can someone say #happyhour #springstyle?

@BoutiqueW gives it up with this #newaesthetic from high-end handles to the slouchy laid-back bag that fits all the essentials. This ladylike classic had me do a double take – Could we dare to say ‘almost a Birkin’? Large clean and simple, go neutral with color to coordinate for an #OOTD ensemble. It’s the #classiccarryall you can #wearwithall!

From micro minis to big bags, the plethora of intoxicating style @BoutiqueW will have you #inthebag for days. Will it be a one lipstick, one card night or do you need that bevy of belongings to keep you going all weekend long? For the unexpected, let your inner chic come alive with #metallicfringe and if it’s an overnight, go for the larger than life #duffletote. #shinytrends #understated #accessories by #BoutiqueW

A family of layered neutrals peaks my Pinterest! The showroom feel @BoutiqueW offers is a range of soft and sumptuous textiles in smoky hues. Dress for a #relaxedvibe and choose fluid and fashionable looks to create #sportychic. Add a wide belt and #cinchIt for shape. For that Hampton-esque feel, leave the vest long and open, and add statement jewelry. Try it on #planetbylaureng #Symplistyle #ComfyUSA – clothing lines with a fit that flatters all.

What’s black and white and red all over? Smart and simple dressing. Pair a black #Tribal tank over white pants while boasting your #redleather fringe benefits. Cuff it up with this season’s must have jewelry piece – the adjustable #ArmCuff and #Bodychain it in black and silver #EffortlessElegance

Whether a fan or not of this chief principle of preppy, #poppedcollars can be functional – protection from a cool breeze or hiding that hickey from the night before…just kidding! Please, no hickeys! Regardless of your fashion preference, wear a button-up blouse as a jacket and voila, you’ve got a new #OOTD with #PlanetClothing. Elevate #dressdown Friday with a splash of red #Liverpooljeans @BoutiqueW

Leather cords = instant chic. While enticed by #ruggedandraw artists who mix metals and tortoise shell with buttery textures of deer hide, who wouldn’t want to wear it all at one time? @myboutiquew gets us fired up with a plethora of feminine styles without breaking the bank. Rawhide is edgy, it’s innovative and it’s #strongfeminine without the flower power. #loveleatherlooks

Elena Russo

If anyone around Baltimore knows fashion from the inside out, it’s Elena Russo. Elena wasn’t just a “working” model. She was a HARD working model; running from castings to shows to photo shoots to the gym. Elena worked countless runways and designer showrooms, and major magazine shoots, print and TV campaigns for the likes of Carolina Herrera, Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, Marie Claire, Head Sportswear and White House/Black Market. Her work took her to Milan, New York and many other East Coast markets before she settled down in Baltimore. Now she’s sharing more of what she’s learned about beauty and fashion with you. Elena’s ability to find the reality - rather than the fantasy - of fashion is evident in her shopping know-how. With a bi-weekly fashion column, she shares her local “Elena’s LookBook,” identifying trends you can find at local boutiques in and around Charm City to help you refresh and modernize your closet, and yourself!
