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!!!

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!!!

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!!!

No Sweat

21 Sep

Looking chic is no sweat with this leather sweatshirt by Givenchy! I simply adore this top paired with sweats-inspired tuxedo pants similar to these by Proenza Schouler. Add monochrome accessories that play into the theme of the look. A pair of black and white animal-print pumps like the ones shown here by Aquazzura are perfect to break up the monotony of the look a bit. Read on to shop the pieces!!!

Straight Lines

21 Sep

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!!!
