Leopard Everything

24 Oct

Ok, Ok! I love animal print too! Yet another Leonine quality I possess. I just love this ensemble! It is very me and I would wear it in a heartbeat. The sweatshirt is TopShop, the sneakers are Zara, the pants: Mango, and the multi-layer chain is from Go Jane. All of the mentioned pieces are extremely affordable and range from $40 – $100. The claw ring on the other hand is from Forzieri and may take a bit of splurging to obtain at its nearly $400 price mark. Interested in this look? Read on to shop the pieces!!!

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.

Glitter In Gold

3 Oct

Glitter in gold this Christmas in this beautiful cardigan by L Wren Scott! Pairing the white sweater and its golden embellishments with red-hot pants by J Brand creates a upscale look perfect for holiday festivities. You can also pair with skinny jeans for a more casual look. A golden-sequined purse by Dolce & Gabbana and red open-toe sandals by River Island complete the look no matter what pants you decide on.

Halloween Ball

26 Sep

As Halloween approaches, children begin to get eager but for those parents who attend adult festivities for the holiday, there is much excitement as well. The print on this Mary Katrantzou dress reminds me of a dark Fall evening where the moon is full and the atmosphere is kind of spooky. Perfect for a Halloween Ball! This dress just doesn’t need many accessories but an understated necklace could work if not overdone. A satin clutch and pumps finish this ensemble off nicely. Read on to shop the pieces!!!

Back To Cali

26 Sep

In case you are going-going back-back to Cali-Cali (HaHa!), you want to make sure you’ve got your designer style down pat. This ensemble is an excellent example of “celebrity-style” with its pieces by luxury brands Versace, Balmain, Valentino and Kate Spade. The shimmery graphic tee adds a touch of shine to the outfit and the chain adds a bit of bling! Pair with biker jeans, studded heels, and a graphic clutch and you are ready to go … “RockStar Chic”!

On Edge

24 Sep

This set was created with Rihanna in mind. It just reminds of her oh so edgy style that I love! To get this look, you need to first find a skirt that is right for you. You can go mini, knee-length or midi, depending on your preference and body shape. I decided on a red patent leather pencil skirt by Valentino. Next find a bustier that you love. The Chromat one featured here happens to be a bodysuit which helps control bunching, etc. A statement necklace works wonders with a strapless top such as this as well! In true Rihanna style, I had to add a pair of killer shoes by Isabel Marant and designer bag by Miu Miu. Throw a matching fur on top to keep your shoulders warm as you head out and you are ready for the to be the Queen of the night! Read on to shop the pieces!!!

Witch Doctor

24 Sep

When I was a young girl, my cousin came to visit from Sweden. She was older than me and I was instantly in awe of her. I loved her accent, her beauty, and the fact that she was so different from everyone I knew at the time. I sat mesmerized as she told me stories of her work with a major record label and her travels around the world. As she told me about a trip to Africa, she removed a necklace from around her neck and gifted it to me. Recalling how she bought it from an actual witch doctor, she told me that it was a charm that was meant to prevent sickness. I wore that necklace everyday after and never took it off even when I showered. It eventually broke (probably because I never took it off) and I was so disheartened. I also immediately caught a cold! HaHa! Whether this was truly a magical necklace or if my mind was playing tricks on me, I will never know.

The statement necklace in this set reminds me of that necklace and my dear cousin Sofia. I decided to pair it with a funky ensemble that is, in my opinion, great for a date night or even a Girls Night Out (or a Girls Night In offered by the hubby). I love this leather jacket which would function as a top for this outfit. The necklace would look great sitting within that neckline. Pair the jacket with a monochrome print skirt and this becomes an outfit so hot that your man (and anyone else’s) will drop dead when you enter the room! Continue accessorizing with a similar statement bracelet, clutch, and sexy pumps. Read on to shop the pieces!!!

Clothed For Comfort

24 Sep

There are times when you just want to feel comfortable without necessarily abandoning style. For me, this is very true while I am shopping for one of the hubby’s catering gigs. I have to tackle grocery stores, arts and crafts stores, party supply stores, and more. I made the mistake of wearing an outfit with a pair of cute heels once. Never again! I could barely walk the next day. HaHa! This particular ensemble is great for those times when you need to dress for comfort. Boyfriend jeans are a huge trend right now so you’ll be right on the mark. Toss on a comfy graphic tee so you can make a statement while staying comfy. A pair of sneakers works best for those times when you must pound the pavement. Finish the look with a cute handbag that is not cumbersome or even a shoulder bag for those needing to keep their hands free. Read on to shop the pieces!!!
