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!!!

Adorned

5 Oct

The gold bars on this gray Givenchy sweater inspired me to find more edgy adornments for this ensemble. The Moschino clutch was a perfect fit with its embroidery, appliqués, and, gold hardware. Golden Dolce & Gabbana earrings and spiked Louboutins add another great touch.  I decided on red leather pants to add a bit more edge to the outfit although a par of jeans would work as well.

For those of you who are already thinking “Spring” while updating your wardrobe this Fall, this Marc Jacobs butterfly-embellished dress will have just the effect you desire. Perfect for fair weather, this cocktail dress is great for Spring-time events. Pair the dress with open-toe heels and a bag in one of the colors featured on the butterflies. Here I have chosen purple. Tiny butterfly stud earring make a great addition to the ensemble. Read on to shop the pieces!!!

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!!!

Sapphire Inspired

Adding jewel-toned accessories can add flare to an already beautiful dress in a neutral shade such as this taupe-colored dress by Armani Collezioni.  Blue pumps and clutch make a perfect match for this dress and each other. Add a sparkling diamond bracelet to compete the very classy upscale look. 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!!!

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!!!
