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.
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!
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.

Till next time lovelies. Love always,
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!
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?
- 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.
- The deep V – this neckline brings the eye down to balance out the shoulder detail and draw attention to the rest of your outfit.
- 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)!
- The soft material – this velvet piece is so soft and cozy against the skin, I can sleep in it!
- 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.
Drop me a line and let me know if you love wearing bodysuits for spring. I now have a few of those and cannot wait to show them off this season! Enjoy the rest of your week, 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!
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.
What are some of your new finds for spring? Anything for the office? Check out ROMWE‘s new selection for some fresh options.
Happy spring, 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.

What beautify did I receive?
My surprise arm candy is the Alisse Large Tote. And boy do I love her?!? She arrived in a beautiful packaging with a personalized note. The expert totally nailed my style! She is elegant, sophisticated, roomy, versatile and did I mention practical! What more can a girl want?! OK, yes, I forgot–color! This beautiful shade of brandy is so chic and would partner perfectly with a sheath dress for work or blue denim on a casual day out. The leather is so soft and detailed to perfection with the metallic accents. As a mama on the go, I always appreciate having a top zipper closure and short and long straps to utilize according to the occasion. Running after little feet and worrying about your bag is no fun, however this bag gives you the long strap so you can enjoy a hands-free option when you need it.
Bottom line: I am a happy camper with a beautiful handbag at hand and you can have yours for only $45/month too!
Fashion tends to repeat itself, doesn’t it?! 30-40 years pass and we see the same trends show up. My auntie used to tell me this and I could not fathom it possible, but now I have lived enough and see that she was right indeed!! This week’s look is inspired by the high-waisted pants and in particular a plaid tapered version that caught my eye. It is funny to look back in time and remember laughing at mom’s jeans, thinking I would never wear such pants… Lo and behold, I sure am into those now–looking at my first pair of ripped mom jeans now and showing you this look whose main act is a pair of pants that sit right at my belly button!!
I saw the Plaid Tapered Pants With Strap and immediately thought: red booties, red top and a baker boy hat–chic, edgy and current with a twist of vintage! But these pants are so versatile that I decided to try two different looks, which can be achieved with a slight modification of accessories and a top to drive the ship either into a sophisticated or hip direction.
The sophisticated – for this look, I chose to pair the pants with the Elastic Trumpet Cuff Bow Tied Blouse. The femininity and elegance of this top compliments the preppy feel of the pants to create an urbane outfit! The burgundy color of the top is very suitable and pops even against the strong multi-color plaid pattern–almost like PB and J–made for one another! Add some red booties, red-framed glasses, your favorite red lip color and this look can easily take you from a day to work to happy hour with your colleagues!

The hip – bring on the “old school cool!” This pairing is exactly what emerged in my head as soon as I say the pants. “I had a vision!” To bring it to life I kept the pants and added the Contrast Half Zip Bow Tied Bodysuit in Wine Red and my favorite baker boy hat. This bodysuit is among the most comfortable ones I own. The fabric is a cotton-poly blend–super soft against your skin–always a plus in my books! I also love the vintage feel the bow tied collar, the white contrasting trim and half-zipper front detail bring. Doesn’t is all come together to bring a modish look?!

Which look is your favorite? I would love to hear below in the comments!
❤ Happy, happy Valentine’s day week! ❤ Whatever your relationship status may be, I hope cupid sits on your shoulder and you have a great time with the person/people you love! ❤
I decided to show you this look as it is not the traditional red dress, the lace beauty in pink or the sexy little black dress, but it spells elegant with an edge to me–perfect to make any girl feel confident or special for a Valentine’s or Galentine’s date. This outfit is very sentimental to me as it features a special item that has been in my family for three generations now. Can you guess which one it is?
The Half Buttoned Velvet Floral Bodysuit – where do I begin with this suit? The print is so unique and fresh. I love the flowers in dust pink and honey yellow with touches of Mediterranean blue and olive green. Those seem to pop, but in very gentle fashion, on the black velvet fabric. The wide sleeves with wide trim give this bodysuit a kimono feel and the v-neckline and small round-dome buttons on the front add to the dainty details that make this piece so charming and feminine. You can use code “LauraZF” on Zaful.com to receive 10% off your purchase!
The leather skirt – I have owned this skirt for at least a year now and absolutely adore styling it as it instantly adds edge an outfit. I love the zip detail on the pockets and the asymmetrical split at the front. The leather is soft and lined, making this skirt a pleasure to wear.
The booties – these have my name on it. I am a huge fan of pointy toes, kitten heels and soft colors–put these together and you have a winning bootie in my books. Those are super comfy which is a HUGE plus.
It’s the clutch – the sentimental piece, this clutch is very dear to my heart–it is the engagement present my grandpa made my grandma–how special is that. It is snakeskin and every detail is so eloquent and refined! “They don’t make them like this any more!” is a phrase fit for this situation! ❤
The sunglasses – every lady needs to looks trough these cute, round, pink shades. They are so charming and so girly–a great spring accessory! You can use code “LauraZF” on Zaful.com to receive 10% off your purchase!
