Gypsy Chic

4 Jul

Ok, I love BoHo! This outfit features a super cute pair of 100% silk shorts from Ostwald Helgason and a studded crop top that can be found on Nelly.com. This ensemble is not for the shy as it does show a bit of skin, but hey it’s summer time so why not! Speaking of summer, the shorts are ultra comfy as they are designed as track shorts with an elastic waistband.  Although silk is not as airy as cotton, these shorts are unlined so they will breathe well. The top is rayon which is a summer fabric that will help keep its wearer cool. Pair this look with a matching statement necklace and bracelet. A tote bag will help to set off the look. Consider the bag shown here by Hermes. Sandals are the perfect summer footwear especially if they are as chic as the Louboutins shown here. This is great vacation attire so if interested, read on to shop the pieces!!!

Leopard Everything

Gilded Lily

24 Oct

I’m a Leo and for us there can never be enough gold! HaHa! So you know I am soooo (I refuse to say “totes” lol) loving this Balmain top. This piece can easily be worn during the day or night. I would pair with a pair of  jeans with a slight “boyfriend” feel but not too baggy and a pair of cute pumps. For a night out on the town , however, I would “gild the lily” so to speak by introducing a pair of gold jeans into the mix. Add golden open-toe sandals and accessories and you will feel like the Queen of the Night! Read on to shop the pieces!!!

Jersey Sure

24 Oct

Would you love to have this Cavalli jersey dress to add to your collection? “Sure!” is the only acceptable answer! HaHa! For me, I would definitely want to play up the color in this piece by adding pumps and a clutch in an orange tone. There are also variations of this dress such as the one worn by Rita Ora (which I love as well). You can also stick with neutral heels and accessories if you want to let the dress shine on its own.

The Buterfly Effect

Hot Date

3 Oct

Remember the sexier you feel, the sexier you are going to be to him! Body con dresses such as this bandage dress are excellent for making a woman feel and look their hottest. Another trick to is to wear a sexy bra and panty set under the dress but you have to make sure your significant other sees you getting dressed (if he can’t be there to see, send a sexy pic of you in the dress captioned “What I’m wearing” and then an even sexier pic in the bra and panty set captioned “What I’m wearing underneath”). He’ll be daydreaming about “what’s underneath” all night! HaHa! The magazine-inspired clutch will have you feeling even more like the top model you are. Read on to shop the pieces!!!
