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!!!

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!!!

Orange & Tan

27 Apr

This set is inspired by Mark Rothko’s painting Orange and Tan. I love this color combo! The top featured in this post reminded me of the colors in the paining and I love its Bohemian style. I decided to match the Boho theme by pairing with khaki shorts, canvas tote, and a pair of strappy sandals/wedges. Don’t forget the accessories an you are ready for a day in the sun!

Your Lucky T-shirt

10 Apr

Dress your lucky t-shirt up or down! Don’t be afraid to pair a nice tee with either casual or dressier jeans.  Leave the shirt hanging out over a pair of ‘husband(boyfriend) jeans’ and pair with a funky pair of wedge sneakers. Or tuck the shirt in to the dressier jeans and pair them with flats for a sleeker more tailored look. The accessories are actually a matching cuff and ring set that can be split apart with the ring paired with the casual outfit and the cuff paired with the dressier outfit.

Easter In The City

20 Mar

It’s Easter time in the city! Here’s an Easter-inspired set featuring pastels for you and the hubby. The multi-colored print on this Catherine Malandrino dress inspired images of skyscrapers when the hubby saw it. (He often glances at my screen as I sit next to him and blog.) I agreed and this set was born! You can pair yours and his accessories to the various shades of color in featured in the dress. Simple white accessories would also do. Read on to shop the pieces!!!
