Designer Profile: Chelsea Bell of Stone Fox

LA-based designer Chelsea Bell launched Stone Fox Swim in early 2012, and with a loyal cult-like following of bikini collectors, the brand has been a leading player in the bikini game since it entered the market. Just three years later, Bell has expanded her brand with Stone Fox Sweat, an activewear line that compliments the health-conscious, beach goer that is her customer. Here, the designer sounds off on the secret to her success, her new activewear endeavor and plays favorites with a particular bottom she just can’t get enough of.

Haute Living’s RAC Shopping Guide: Designer Denim

It should come as no surprise that denim is a focus this Fall, as the classic-meets-cool wardrobe staple has proved to be a timeless piece in anyone’s closet since 1873 (thanks to iconic brand, Levi’s). This season, designers have reimagined denim far beyond jeans with denim jackets, shirts, dresses, shoes, skirts and the elevated version of overalls— which happens to be one of the biggest trends to reemerge this year. Styled with suede, leather, a knit turtleneck or lightweight sweater, the current array of designer denim is one that adds an inspired level of sophistication to a fabric this was otherwise considered basic. And the denim featured here is anything but basic.

Haute Living’s RAC Shopping Guide: The Beauty Buy

As summer comes to a close, not only do our wardrobes shift to welcome autumn, our beauty routines do as well. Changing our skincare regime according to weather variables is essential in order to achieve a healthy glow. Fall brings dryer and cooler temperatures, which can irritate and damage the delicate layers of our skin. Similarly, to repair damage that has been done to our skin while basking in the summer sun, we’ll need the best beauty products on the market to stay fresh-faced and radiant. To achieve that glowing, dewy skin look, follow the skincare tips below and apply your beauty products routinely. Consistency is the name of the game.

Haute Living’s RAC Shopping Guide: Suede

Fall is around the corner, and in preparation for the season we’re setting our sights on the perfect trendy-but-classic layers, knits, overcoats, accessories and more to take us through the season. This year, Fall is all about florals, lace and fluid silhouettes with a nod to 70s hippie glamour: think wide leg pants paired with a lace, high-neck Victorian blouse (a look that is both on trend and appropriate for South Florida). Suede on suede is also a prominent trend this season, but translating a head-to-toe suede look to South Florida (cue the fans, please) can be challenging. Instead, we suggest investing in key pieces, like a suede mini skirt in a rich cognac color, or a handbag like Chloe’s Faye shoulder bag. Styling Fall trends in warm weather is all about balance: just a touch of suede, cashmere or heavier fabrics with airy, lighter pieces that speak to this market year round.

Designer Spotlight: Jerome C. Rousseau

It’s not every day that you meet a designer as unique, talented and surprisingly candid as coveted shoe designer Jerome C. Rousseau. His collections are skillfully designed, from construction to embellishments, and Rousseau’s point of view is strong and apparent in each of his pieces. The young designer has quickly gained a loyal following of A-list clientele, with starlets like Taylor Swift, Cameron Diaz and Katie Holmes choosing his intricate shoes for red carpet events galore. And while the collections alone are mesmerizing, to know the man behind the shoes takes what was a liking for this particular footwear designer to an all-out love affair with all things Jerome C. Rousseau.
