I don’t always wear red during summer, however I fell in love with the romantic nature of this Ruffle Strap & Hem Button Up Dress and decided to give red a chance this season. Doesn’t it combine beautifully with my straw bag and hat to create a fun, beach- or farmer’s-market-inspired look? This dress is very detail-rich and yet feels simple and elegant. The ruffle straps and hem bring femininity and charm, the button front brings it right on trend, the delicate print allows for numerous combinations with white, black or red accessories, the draw string at the waist hugs your figure at the narrowest portion of your body, the midi-length gives it a sophisticated flair–all those come together to create a pretty and classy piece one can wear to brunch, the beach and even to work. I also like the overall vintage charm this dress posses–it makes me feel like a lady! 🙂

Fun Under The Sun

Hello lovelies,

Happy, happy summer to you! 🌞 Summer is my favorite season–it brings this vacation vibe that stays around for a few months. The weather is warm and the beach is calling your name. It is time to wear fun dresses and enjoy warm nights talking to friends, sipping on drinks garnished with umbrellas, laughing the night away.

Last week I introduced you to my favorite button front summer dress, this week it is time to show you a shorter option with some ruffle flair, the SHEIN Keyhole Back Ruffle Hem Shirred Panel Dress. This little number makes me want to dance. The body of the dress is made out of a stretchy, band-like material that hugs your curves and adds romanticism with ruffles by the sleeves and at the bottom of the dress. The red and white pattern add to the fun character of the dress and so does the tear drop open back detail. The dress is made out of cotton–one of my favorite natural fabrics for the summer. I ordered a size medium and the fit is pretty great aside from the length, but I am also 5’9”, so it would be a lot longer on someone who is not quite as tall.

The Button Front Cami Dress – A Summer Must-Have

Hello lovelies,

How is your summer going thus far? I have been away from the blog a bit as I took a trip to Austria last week. Vienna is such a great city and it sure reminded me of all the gorgeousness, history and beautiful architecture a European city possesses. The weather was warm and pleasant, which made me think of all the pretty and trendy dresses this summer’s fashion is gifting us with.

If you were a kid or a teen in the 90’s, you’ll remember that button front skirts and dresses were big then. Guess what!? They are back for some more action and admiration, and I am digging the trend for the second time in my life. Shein totally nailed it with this button front cami dress. It comes in three different colors, is made out of linen (perfect fabric for summer), the shift cami cut feels breezy and light, and the tea length allows you to pair this gorgeous dress with either flats, sneakers (for a casual day look), kitten heels or pumps (for afternoon/evening sophistication). The details are very charming as well–who doesn’t love pockets on their dress, I also like the high waist and heavily pleated skirt attached to it (allows for a delicious brunch on a Sunday ;)).

Off-The-Shoulder Summer Plaid

Hello lovelies,

How is your week? Do you feel like summer has arrived with its sunny days, high temperatures and light outfits? I sure do, although California weather is so unpredictable–one day you are sweating the heat, the next you are looking for your blazer. 😊

This week I have partners with us.vip.com to bring you a fun and breezy look. With a twist of Scottish plaid and off-the-shoulfer-Bavarian-October-fest flavor, this dress combines a winter pattern with a fall fit to create an unforgettable piece that evokes all the right emotions of bright, cheerful, playful, carefree summer days!!

This off-the-shoulder beauty caught my eye and called my name with its:

  • Beautiful pattern–I love the combination of blue, red and white, and these three colors bring the plaid pattern to life. Having deep blue as the dominant color brings a feeling of the ocean. Add the white and red lines and cheerful checkers emerge to entertain the eye.
  • Off-the-shoulder A-line silhouette–so feminine and flowey. It is also versatile as you can wear the neckline both off-the-shoulder or over your shoulders. The synching around the waist exentuates the smallest part of you, giving you a fluid-like hourglass figure.
  • The fabric is very light which together with the cut make this dress perfect for a warm summer day.
  • Colors–you can pull any of the colors with your accessories. I chose red platforms and a navy blue bag, however the possibilities are endless, white pumps and bag, red peeptoes and satchel, navy sandals and clutch, or any combination of those.
  • You can use code “Marieta1059” for 10% off your us.vip.com order of $50 or more.

This dress is currently out of stock, but be sure to check us.vip.com for their amazing dress selection. I have my eyes set on this denim beauty already.

Let me know how you like this dress in the comments or which one you would like for yourself.

Love Always,

Marieta

Summer Whites

Hello lovelies,

I have missed you all. Please, excuse my absence, life has been pretty fast-pace lately. Exciting new changes that I would perhaps share next time as this post is all about WHITE!

SHEIN Ruffle Cuff Guipure Lace Overlay Dress, WHite Zara Shoes, Round Glasses (9)SHEIN Ruffle Cuff Guipure Lace Overlay Dress, Round Glasses ZAFUL (1)

As summer is surely approaching we are all pulling out our favorite white articles of clothing, be it jeans, tops, skirts, shots, dresses–it is the season to be in white! If you love what you have, but are looking to expand your while repertoire then I have the dress for you. Just could not pass up this beautiful, cotton, fit and flare beauty from SHEIN. It is feminine and flirty, soft and airy, with an eye-catching cut out fabric, accentuating the waist and pretty stand collar. I am wearing a size small and am happy with the fit.

This dress pairs beautifully with any color accessories–blue (for a Santorini feel), blush, cream, red, even black (for a Parisian look), but there is something about white on white that spells “vacation, beach, warm nights, fresh breeze” and embodies all things SUMMER. Given that I crave that feeling, I paired the Ruffle Cuff Guipure Lace Overlay Dress, with white pumps and a white clutch.

Velvet with a Sprinkle of Sparkles

Hello lovelies,

Between work being extremely busy and taking a vacation after our project was due, I have been a bit MIA from both blogging and being active on Instagram, so without further ado here is my new favorite fashion obsession: the perfect velvet bodysuit!

SHEIN Beaded Shoulder Surplice Velvet Bodysuit, Banana Republic Pencil Skirt, YSL Clutch (13)SHEIN Beaded Shoulder Surplice Velvet Bodysuit, Banana Republic Pencil Skirt, YSL Clutch (6)SHEIN Beaded Shoulder Surplice Velvet Bodysuit, Banana Republic Pencil Skirt, YSL Clutch (8)

This piece is so sophisticated, yet fun, has tons of details, yet looks clean-lined and classy! So, what are some of the features of the Beaded Shoulder Surplice Velvet Bodysuit that I adore?

  1. The shoulder details – the beaded necklaces-like detail adds so much visual interest to the upper half of the suit. It is set on a black tulle patch which to me screamed inspiration for pairing the suit with a black pencil skirt, a tulle a line one or a pair of simple black cigarette pants. The metallic color of the beads is not an exact silver or bronze, which allows for the selection of any jewel without clash with the shoulder detail.   SHEIN Beaded Shoulder Surplice Velvet Bodysuit, Banana Republic Pencil Skirt, YSL Clutch (1)SHEIN Beaded Shoulder Surplice Velvet Bodysuit, Banana Republic Pencil Skirt, YSL Clutch (5)
  2. The deep V – this neckline brings the eye down to balance out the shoulder detail and draw attention to the rest of your outfit.   SHEIN Beaded Shoulder Surplice Velvet Bodysuit, Banana Republic Pencil Skirt, YSL Clutch (9)
  3. The color – the deep burgundy color is so rich and adds to the refined character of the bodysuit. This piece is also available in black and goldish khaki (which is absolutely gorgeous and on my wish-list)!
  4. The soft material – this velvet piece is so soft and cozy against the skin, I can sleep in it!SHEIN Beaded Shoulder Surplice Velvet Bodysuit, Banana Republic Pencil Skirt, YSL Clutch (3)SHEIN Beaded Shoulder Surplice Velvet Bodysuit, Banana Republic Pencil Skirt, YSL Clutch (10)
  5. The comfy fit (SIZE UP!) – OK, so I initially ordered a size Small, since it is my typical in tops, but could barely put my arms trough the sleeves and could not button the suit for the life of me…. Soooo, the next time I ordered I went with LARGE and I love how it fits–it is no pulling anywhere and it is not wide either–just the perfect size for me! I would highly recommend jumping up at least one size, especially if your torso is on the longer side.

Red or Black for Work

Hello lovelies,

Happy Easter! How was your celebratory weekend? We had a great time doing a couple of egg hunts and gathering with friends. I missed writing a post last Monday as I have been incredible busy at work–pulling 60 to 80-hour weeks at the office for the past month–crazy marathon to the finish line.

Since I have been in hard-core working mode, I thought I’d introduce you a couple of new dresses perfect to wear to the office!

ROMWE Black Ruffle Detail Sheath Dress, Nine West Red Heels (1)ROMWE Pearl Beading Sleeve Form Fitting Dress, Ralph Lauren Bag, White Pumps (6)

First up is this form fitting red beauty with pearl details on the sleeves from ROMWE. She has a simple silhouette letting the color of the dress speak for itself. The midi length is perfect for the office and so are the three-quarter sleeves – both of which tend to elongate the body and create an elegant and classy look. To add a spring feeling to this look, I added a pair of white pumps and a cream bag. This dress would of course carry black or beige accessories beautifully, so you have many options to entertain.

My second choice of Spring beauties for the office is this classy ruffle-trim sheath black dress. Just like the red dress, it has a simple shape which allows the details to shine–in this case the ruffles around the sleeve and neck area as well as the V-neckline. I decided to add a belt to accentuate the waist and bring the eye to the upper half of the dress. Red shoes and a beige clutch. Unfortunately, this dress is out of stock at the moment, but I have linked a few similar options here, here and here.

How to wear “MOM” jeans

Hello lovelies,

How was your weekend? Did you greet St. Patrick in green? I feel like I am excused from this tradition as I happen to have entered the world on the same day, so birthday attire is allowed even if not in green! Hehe!

So this year, I had a full day of celebrations with different set of friends and family at different locations and with different flavors–brunch with girlfriends in mid-town, a bit of shopping and semi-fancy Italian restaurant dinner with my family in Beverly Hill, closing down the evening with cocktails in Silverlake… I knew I was going to be running around town and wanted to be comfy and chic, so what did I reach out to?! Unexpectedly, the first pair of ripped mom jeans I have ever owned! Somehow to me high-waited jeans scream: “Pair me up with a bodysuit and you will have perfection!” So I listened and picket to partner my comfy pair of jeans with a black velvet bodysuit with rivet embellishment. It added a stylish twist to the look with its sophisticated velvet fabric, slash collar line, and small cutouts at the waist.

To finish the look off I added my favorite black belt, red pumps, embroidered leather moto jacket and a baker boy hat. The look make be feel comfortable and confident–what else can a birthday girl ask for? At least when it comes to her outfit? 😉

Tips: If you are pondering upon grabbing a pair of these jeans, you should consider sizing up. However, if your legs are on the stick-thin side you will be “A OK” going with your regular size as you don’t want the waist to be too loose. Same goes with the bodysuit–I recommend sizing up. I generally wear a small in tops. I ordered the medium from this bodysuit and I should have totally gone for the large.
