The 70’s in 2017! And $1,000 PayPal Giveaway!

Hello loves,

Have you entered the giveaway for a chance to win $1,000 PayPal cash? Details are at the bottom of the post! Can you believe Christmas in just a little over a week away? Where did the year go? Speaking of years, today I am showing you a recent favorite look of mine that brings such 70’s vibes to 2017! Makes me feel like I am back in ABBA times and listening to “Dancing Queen”.

  1. Faux Fur Vest –Β Fur vests and coats have made a big comeback over the last two years and this ROMWE treasure sure grabbed my attention with it’s beautiful khaki color, v-neck collar and perfect fit. It even has invisible buttons so you can close the front if you desire. The browns, beiges, and black hues in the fur make is perfect for the earthy tones we tend to gravitate towards during Fall and winter. I have to admit, I had not owned fur anything up to now and am surprised by how warm the vest keeps me. It has been a “cool” πŸ˜‰ addition to my wardrobe.Β 
  2. Bell Sleeves – this Black Bell Sleeve Slim T-Shirt infuses so much 70’s to the look! I love the fact that the bottom of the sleeves are a slightly different texture than the rest of the top, which adds more drama to the already exaggerated sleeves. There are little strings on those as well–all about the details.
  3. The color scheme of browns (in the vest, boots and bag) and blacks (the skinny jeans and top) with a touch a khaki (also in the vest) add a retro touch as well.

The Moto Jacket – it is such a staple in every woman’s wardrobe and instantly adds a coolness factor to an outfit, whether you pair it with jeans or a dress. Here are my top three Romwe picks:

  2. Stand Collar Oblique Zipper Crop Jacket – if your girl is more traditional or simply not into the “embroidery thing” this jacket is the one for her. I love the sticking detail of this jacket which adds so much to the design without overpowering it. ROMWE_Stand Collar Oblique Zipper Crop Jacket

  3. Zipper Detail Quilted PU Jacket – if you would like her to step away from black this season then this jacket would grab her attention with its zipper and quilted details and would sure make her gravitate to this non-black neutral.ROMWE_Zipper Detail Quilted PU Jacket

Red or Green – What to Wear to Your Company’s Holiday Party

Hello lovelies,

Happy Monday! Were you able to decorate your tree this weekend? We went hunting for some toddler-appropriate ornaments as you know little hands like to explore EVERYTHING, so the tree would be as child-proof as possible!

As the holidays are fast approaching and we are all getting ready, I decided to show you my three outfit options for a company’s holiday party. I’ve always liked metallic dresses for the holidays, but this year the choice is between red and green.

Green V Neck 3/4 Sleeve Basic Knee Length Women’s A Line Dress by VIPSHOP (the SWEET look) You know lace has a special place in my heart, so naturally this dress caught my eye! Doesn’t the fabric texture look beautiful in the green color? I find the dainty scallop detailing around the neckline very intricate and appealing. The bell sleeves and A-line silhouette both add so much femininity to the look. The dress is a midi which is one more reason it would be the perfect partner in crime for your company’s celebration. Add some red nail polish and either metallic or black accessories and you are all ready for the coming festivities!

One Side Tiered Ruffle Trim Dress by ROMWE (look “En FUEGO!”) – this year RED is BIG! You know most designers sent all red looks down the runway for fall and winter. This dress hits the trend as well as a holiday note just right. It is plain yet bold, simple yet makes a statement with its silhouette and pretty ruffle shoulder detail! It is a midi, however still appropriately sexy as the bodycon hugs your curves. One more benefit–it is only $19.99! This dress would look beautiful with a pair of golden heels and clutch, or red pumps and a black bag for an added punch. I kept my accessories the same for the three looks, so that I can let the dresses shine. This dress is also great for a NYE celebration and I cannot wait to wear it to either.

Frill Neck High Waist Midi Dress by Shein (the VINTAGE charmer) – OK, if you are a girl who digs vintage charm, this is the dress for you! It comes with a frill Victorian collar, high waist, an asymmetrical tea length hemline, a loose silhouette, and the most intricate button detail on the sleeves. The deep green color of the satin shimmers beautifully in the sun and would shine in style under some holiday lighting as well. This dress is also available in black. I am showing you two possible ways to wear this dress:

1) As is – letting the hem of the dress fly free. I like the line this way as it it very true to its vintage character.

2) Tied bottom – if you want a way to add more definition you can go for an intricate belt or tie the bottom. There is enough fabric to do so and the tie looks like a flower, which is still in tune with the vintage character of the dress.

Floral Fall

Hello lovelies!

Can you believe it is already September? This year is flying by so fast and before we know it Fall will be here! Despite the recent California heat wave, I have started prepping my wardrobe for the change of seasons and have lined up items to introduce you to.

VIP.com Yellow Floral Dress, Lucky brand Panama Hat, Round GlassesYellow Floral Dress VIP.com, Lucky Brand Idalina Heel, OOTD in Style.jpFloral Dress by VIP.com, Lucky Brand Idalina Heel, Lucky Brand Myra Crossbody Bag, Panama Hat, Silverlake, Cliff's Edge, OOTD in StyleFloral A-line Dress Yellow VIP.com, Lucky Brand Idalina Heel, Lucky Brand Myra Crossbody Bag, Panama Hat, OOTD in Style

For this week’s transitional look, I have partnered with VIP.com to present to you this sweet, A-line, yellow floral dress. Doesn’t it ooze feminine charm?! It captured my attention with it’s gentle floral pattern combining pinks, whites and greens on a lovely mustard-hued background, which allows the pattern to speak in their soft tones. The cut of the dress along with the ruffled, bow-tie sleeves only add to the ladylike character of this dress.

So what is it that makes this dress so suitable for the next few month:

  • The mustard yellow color reminds me of the leaves changing color;
  • The dress is lined and perfect for cooler days;
  • It hits below the knee, which would make it suitable for early Fall days;
  • This floral beauty would partner well with a denim or leather jacket.

I decided to pair my new VIP.com find with lace up sandals, round glasses, black panama hat and black leather bag to give it some boho flavor as I was going to brunch in an edgy neighborhood where most people wear interesting statement pieces! I see this dress as a versatile piece as I would switch out the lace-up sandals with black kitten heels and wear it to the office.

Let’s Escape to Tropical Paradise

Hello, lovely people!

Happy February! I recently went on vacation to the US Virgin Island of St. Croix, and boy, is it a beautiful piece of land surrounded by the most vibrant, countless-shades-of-blue water! Some of the architecture is stunning and where a building has turned into an abandoned ruin the flora has taken over and turned it into a charming, out-of-Tom-Sayer site! I could imagine countless photo-shoots there–a photographer’s Paradise!

As beautiful as St. Croix is, it is also not a very posh place. People are very welcoming, but unfortunately seem to live on a penny, the infrastructure is sort of maintained, and the island does not house many fancy restaurants or stores, BUT that is just part of its endless charm! It is a relaxing, let-your-hair-down, makeup-free, non-pretentious, casual kind of island.

So, what are some of the essentials you would need to have an enjoyable vacation:

  1. A few pairs of bikini (love the VS options here)–the island offers many wonderful beaches (my favorites are Sugar Cane Beach, Rainbow Beach and Sandy Point Beach) and you would love to be in or by the water as much as possible.
  2. A snorkel set (I have a Speedo set that worked very well)–don’t miss the beauty that lives in the water. It is such a calm and astonishing underwater world that you can enjoy by simply investing $35 in some fins, a mask and a snorkel. It takes “playing in the water” to a whole new level.
  3. Sunglasses (got my Kenneth Cole pair, similar here)–it is nice and sunny all the time, and if you are like me and have love for the sun, but can’t look it in the eye for too long, sunglasses would be much needed and appreciated.
  4. Flip-flops (wore this AEO pair everywhere) and flats (I wore my Lucky Brand Ellie pair)–I could have done this entire vacation in my flip-flops, but there was something nice about being able to slip into flats for dinner and the evening weather would allow it! Don’t bother with heels–you will look totally out of place, fell uncomfortable and perhaps a bit tired after a day in the water and under the sun.
  5. Your favorite casual dresses and cover-ups–I brought 5 or 6 dresses, a pair of shorts and a skirt, but the dresses worked so well I didn’t need anything else. You can throw those over your swimsuit with your flip-flops or pair them up with your flats for dinner, a visit to the botanical garden, a tour of the rum distilleries, and voila–you are island ready!
  6. A light jacket (love this Lucky Brand option) or cardi–I always feel cold and St. Croix gets a nice breeze that runs trough the island most of the time–day or night, so I appreciated having a thin denim blazer for a dinner or cocktails out in the evening.

What is nice to have, but not essential:

  1. If you are planning on some hiking adventures you may want to bring a pair of running shoes. I hiked in flip-flops, but wished for my sneakers would magically appear on my feet. πŸ˜‰
  2. Board shorts would also be good for a hike, a paddle board afternoon, jet-skiing or a night out in a see-through kayak to check out the bio-luminescence at Salt River Bay.
  3. A small cross-body bag to house your credit card, some cash, and small essentials.
  4. A backpack for the beach or a hike.
  5. A hat–another way to protect yourself from the sun, however it is a bit windy, which means you may end up chasing your fedora or panama down the beach.

What to leave at home:

  1. Fancy jewels;
  2. Designer bags;
  3. Heels;
  4. Cocktail dresses;
  5. Full makeup set.

St. Croix is a low-key, casual-essentials kind of island, so leave your fancy fashion behind for this vacay, grab your sunscreen, bathing suit, snorkel, an adventure spirit and enjoy the raw fun this island has to offer!

Happy vacationing, ladies and gents!!

Love always,

MV
