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!!!

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!!!

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!!!

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”!

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!!!

Straight Lines

Add a bit of flair to your work wear by pairing a monochrome palette with a dash of color. A classic midi skirt and a pussybow shirt are a great pick for the office but can get a bit boring at times. Pair with heels that add a bit of color to that monochrome theme and a colorful bag to lend a touch of excitement to your work wear. Read on to shop the pieces!!!
