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!

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.

Must-Have Sweaters

ZAFUL Cable Knit Pattern Drop Shoulder Sweater (6)Hello lovelies,

I was up in San Fransisco last weekend and I have to admit, we had a great time dancing, wine tasting, and chatting while admiring the flavors of brunch dishes at hip restaurants. The trip also reminded me how much warmer Los Angeles winters are. AND how important a good sweater is, so I wanted to dedicate this post to just that–the perfect sweaters!

ZAFUL Patched Fuzzy Bowknot Applique Sweater, Lucky Brand Leather Skirt, OTK Boots (4)

Patched Fuzzy Bowknot Applique Sweater – Can we talk about the cute applique flowers and leafs on this sweater?! I mean, those grabbed my eye immediately–they are made out of tulle and lace fabric–such a feminine touch <3!! I also gravitated to the cream color and the fuzzy texture of the sweater. It fits true to size and is a bit shorter at the front than at the back giving your lower back sufficient coverage–something your mom would be happy about (I know mine is)! This sweater is feminine and combines perfectly with a pair of jeans, tapered pants, a pencil plaid skirt or a leather one like mine. It also comes in grey, but you know me–I am a sucker for off-white!

Cable Knit Pattern Drop Shoulder Sweater – this sweater is just so cozy and as it is winter time, we have to think about comfort, style and WARMTH–I guess that is part of comfort during this season. The cable pattern adds texture and the drop shoulders give this beautiful cream sweater a unique cut with long enough sleeves to cover half your hands (I ❤ that part as I have a pet-peeve when it comes to long-sleeves that are short). It is one of those pieces that will never go out of style and you would be excited to pull back out as soon as the weather gets chilly. It is a “one-size” fits all. I generally wear a size small and you can see it has a slightly oversized vibe on me.

Cream and Caramel Dream

Hello lovelies,

Happy New Year to ALL of  you! May 2018 be filled with joy, excitement, prosperity, health, great luck, expanded horizons, sweet memories and heartwarming moments with family and loved ones that we would cherish and smile about!

I am very excited to share that for this first post of the year I have partnered with my favorite classy and sophisticated women’s brand – METISU! My latest picks consist of two absolute must-have dresses  and a coat that would bring elegance and style to any winter outfit. These three pieces are not only eye-catching and pleasing, but sure to keep you warm in this cool season weather.

 

Let’s start with the Beige Belted Waist Coat With Contrast Binding! I have to admit it has quickly become my new wardrobe gem–a classic with a twist of trend and a playful touch all in one. The silhouette is chic with a dramatic turn down wide collar and belted waist. The beige color makes for an easy partnering with most anyone’s taste and existing pieces! The black triangular binding and split cuff detail add a funky twist to this classic. This coat leaves me with one word in my mind: elegance! By the way, this it item is currently on sale for only $89!!

IMG_20180102_132701_304IMG_20180102_132504_603IMG_20180102_132540_386IMG_20180102_132401_120IMG_20180102_132626_115

I decided to pair the coat with an Apricot V-neck Belt Waist Knitted Midi Dress as the two pieces seem to speak the same language to create a cream dream together! There is something about knitted dresses during winter–those seem to be my go-to type and I knew I wanted this one as soon as I laid my eyes on its gorgeous ribbed V top design, which changes in direction once it hits the belt area. The cream and caramel belt is an added accessory which helps you with the selection of the shoes and bag. I chose high cinnamon boots and a vintage burnt caramel bag.

My second dress choice is the Caramel Bow Midi Dress With Flared Sleeve (unfortunately is just went out of stock) which also pairs up beautifully with the coat, however it is much thicker and works wonderfully on its own on a warmer California winter day. This dress drew me in with its swing silhouette, gorgeous bell sleeves and bow-tie V-neckline. The shape of the bottom portion of the dress mimics that of the sleeves to create a cohesive feminine piece, which would make any girl want to twirl around. I paired this dress with black high knee boots and a black bag and was ready to go! The dress would also match perfectly with beige, creme, olive or even white accessories.

What are some of you favorite winter pieces? Have you checked out METISU’s rich collection of beautiful coats and gorgeous dresses yet? Drop me a line to let me know and have a successful first week of work if you are back to the office grind. 😉

Happy New Year once more, my lovely readers! 🙂

How to Style a Key-Piece Three Different Ways

Hello lovelies,

This week I decided to show you how to style a key-piece three different ways. Guess who the main act is? This wild child leopard and camo top I discovered on Gozon.com – a women’s contemporary boutique, headquartered right here in Los Angeles!

What is it that I love about this top?

  • The pint – it is such a unique combination that I had never seen before. The colors go together perfectly and create an eye-catching piece perfect for fall.
  • The sequence pocket – it adds a bit of sparkle and femininity.
  • The design – an asymmetrical cut that falls beautifully and could work perfectly over your pants or tucked into a skirt.
  • The fabric – it is polyester, but also quite soft.
  • It is true to size – which takes the worry away from ordering from a women’s online store!
  • The coupon code “MARIETA15” would give you 15% off your purchase from Gozon Clothing!

I have not been a student for quite some time now, but there still is a rebellious nature in this risk-averse mama! 😉 And somehow this look takes me back to the 90’s when I was in school indeed. These trendy SheIn distressed denim overalls are the perfect partner for my key-piece. Both are funky, unique (hello, have you seen camo, leopard print and sequins all together before?) and cool with tons of playful touches. These denim overalls have a few spots with very moderate rips–which add character, but are not large enough to make you feel the cool fall air get to you. The fabric is ultra soft and very pleasant against your skin. The ankle-length makes them the perfect article to display your booties! Oh, and did I mention the numerous pockets–super handy when you need to carry a few things to the playground, but you want your hands to be free to play with your little one once you are there. These SheIn overalls are also very reasonably priced at $21. I generally wear size 2 and these are size M.

Look 2 – Boho GI Jane – of course I had to try this Gozon.com top in a feminine light as well. I love boho-inspired outfits and could not wait to to put this top together with a suede skirt, suede booties and top is with a boater hat and clubsound sunnies. Isn’t this look right on trend for the Fall to Winter season?

Look 3 – Weekend Warrior/Mama on the GO – if you are a mama you know there are tons of errands to run and fun to be had on the weekends. This look is for you! It is super comfy and trendy all at the same time. Here I have chosen to partner the camo-leopart print top with soft black ripped denim and a pair of flats. Add in your favorite bag and you are ready to conquer the weekend, and do so in style!

One Look – Four Hot Fall Trends

Hello lovelies,

Did you attend any Halloween parties this weekend? Are you excited for Tuesday? I cannot wait to put little bug in her costume and see the excitement in her eyes when she sees the full look and goes out in the neighborhood. But guess what? I am not showing you my Halloween outfit… Today is all about a few of the hottest fall trends combined in one outfit!ROMWE Denim Overall Dress, Bell Sleeves Top, Velvet Flats, Klasse 14 Watch, Round Glasses, Velver Chocket, BlushROMWE Dungaree Midi Dress, Bell Sleeves Top, Round Glasses, Polaroid, H&amp;MROMWE Denim Overall Dress, Bell Sleeves Top, Velvet Flats, Klasse 14 Watch (19)

The main ingredients of this up-to-the-minute look are courtesy of ROWEME (trendy clothing) and KLASSE14 (uniquely beautiful watches). I can feel the anticipation building, so here is the recipe for this fall wander:

  • Button Front Strap Denim Overall Dress – dungaree dresses are so in at the moment and this one is perfect for fall as it is a midi and lends itself to layering perfectly. I have previously paired it with a lace top and now with this trendy black beauty. The button front makes it easy to put on and adds another eye-catching element along with those cute front pockets!ROMWE Denim Overall Dress, Bell Sleeves Top, Blush Velvet Flats, Klasse 14 Watch, Velvet ChokerROMWE Denim Overall Dress, Bell Sleeves Top, Velvet Flats, Klasse 14 Watch (20)ROMWE Denim Overall Dress, Bell Sleeves Top, Velvet Flats, Klasse 14 Watch (17)ROMWE Denim Overall Dress, Bell Sleeves Top, Velvet Flats, Klasse 14 Miss Volare

  • Black Bell Sleeve Slim T-Shirt – OK, I am in love with this top… Not only does it have the dramatic bell sleeves I have been a fan of since last fall, but it adds some strings to those to bring the top to Fall 2017. If you are watching Project Runway you know what I am talking about–Brandon and Kentaro are all about those signature strings! I also love the stand collar–another trendy element perfectly fit for cooler days.ROMWE Denim Overall Dress, Bell Sleeves Top, Velvet Choker, Blush, Fall TrendsROMWE Denim Overall Dress, Bell Sleeves Top, Velvet Choker, H&amp;MROMWE Denim Overall Dress, Bell Sleeves Top, Velvet Choker, Round GlassesROMWE Denim Overall Dress, Bell Sleeves Top, Velvet Flats, Round Glasses, Velvet Choker

  • Velvet Flats – feminine, classy and comfortable–these flats are my favorite way of introducing velvet into an outfit! The blush color is perfect for the texture and such a beautiful neutral to enjoy this season as well. It also matches my new KLASSE14 watch and this velvet choker to the T.KLASSE14 Watch, Miss Volare in Powder, ROMWE Denim Overall Dress, Bell Sleeves Top, Velvet Flats, Klasse 14 Watch (25)ROMWE Denim Overall Dress, Bell Sleeves Top, Velvet Flats, H&amp;M, Klasse 14 Watch, Round Polaroid Glasses
  • Miss Volare Watch in Powder – this watch by KLASSE14 stole my heart. It exudes style and one-of-a kind character! The powder color is so feminine and in perfect sync with the rose gold accents on the uniquely designed watch face! It comes with two sets of straps – a blush suede option (pictured) and a blush leather one. Miss Volare looks beautifully on my wrist and sure gets a lot of compliments from people on the street! Yes, they notice! If you are in the market for a new timepiece I recommend KLASSE14! You can use code “ootdinstyle” for 12% off your watch purchase.

Porcelain Print Pencil Dress

Hi Lovelies,

You know the traditional English dishware Chinoiserie print combining white and vintage blue? I own at least three different sets of porcelain dishes with it… Being such a fan, I could not help but falling in love with this porcelain print pencil dress by ROMWE.

Of course, it first caught my eye with it’s beautiful print and color combination. I then took a closer look and noted two other attributes of the dress that speak my language: 1) the midi length and 2) the bodycon shape. It is elegant and sexy while still being very classy. The 1/2 sleeves make it a perfect fall contender. I was hoping to be able to wear it with a denim or a white blazer to show you how beautifully the two combine, but it was 100F the day we were shooting… CRAZY LA weather! 😉 I chose to style this dress with red pumps and a blue Chanel bag, but could see how you can flip that and wear blue or white shoes and a red or white bag. I love the combo of white, blue and red, and not just for the fourth of July, hehe!

A couple of details on this beautiful dress:

  1. It is under $15!!!
  2. I am wearing a size Small (my usual) and it fits me quite well.
  3. I recommend wearing it with beige or light grey undies, because somehow if you wear white (my first inclination), it will show.
  4. Have you checked it out yet?! 😉

That’s a Wrap!

Hello lovelies,

This week, I have partnered with ZAFUL to bring you two perfect looks involving none other than the printed wrap dress itself! Wrap dresses peaked in popularity in the mid to late 70’s, and then in the late 90’s.. but have remained a strong female closet staple into the 2010’s.

Zaful Printer Green Wrap Dress, Vince Camuto Pumps, Dolche Vita Suede Handbag (1)ZAFUL Gingham Wrap Dress, LuckyBrand Panama Hat, Botkier Bag, Vince Camuto Pumps, Boho Chic, Boho Style, Fall 2017

Look 1: Have to wear a wrap dress to work

ZAFUL has such a cute arsenal of dresses, but for this look I pickled a beautiful Green Slit Beach Printed Wrap Dress. It hits right at the knee, has a sleeve and an asymmetrical front to back line giving it an extra oomph and making it very work-appropriate. Although it is very subtle, the black trim detail on the sleeve gave me the inspiration for accessorizing this look–black pumps, black suede cross-body bag, and black frame, oversized sunglasses. The little cream leaf print could also serve as an accessory color, giving you more options to play with.

The dress is very comfy as it is made from a cotton-polyester blend that would keep you comfy all day long. I am wearing a size Small and it is true to size. To transition this dress into fall and keep it office smart, add a structured blazer and voila!

Look 2: How to turn your wrap dress into a boho piece

For my boho inspired look I selected the Checked Ruffles Wrap Casual Dress. The cut of this piece appealed to me right away–these is something about a dress that is longer and  well-fitted enough to make you feel sexy while not being over-exposed… And this dress does exactly that!

The gingham pattern gives it an every-day vibe and the sleeve trim detailing adds extra flavor. To achieve a boho feel I added a panama hat, a pair of black pumps, and a coral handbag for a bit of color. This dress is also made from a poly-cotton blend making it soft and gentle to your skin. On cooler days, I can see myself wearing this dress with a black leather moto jacket and a pair of booties. Side note: I generally wear a size Small, but ordered a Medium after reading the reviews, and I too would suggest going up a size for your order.

Long Enough?!

Hello lovelies,

Hope your week has been going well. And “YES” I am posting for the second time this week! The solar eclipse must have gotten me, hehe!

PinkBlush Maxi, Lucky brand Bucket Bag, Calvin Klein Red Cateye Glasses, Lucky Brand Flats (5)

Not sure if you can tell by the photos, but this girl is pretty tall–5.9′, some days 5.10′ (no heel height added), so when it comes to finding a maxi I never know if it would be long enough or sort of that awkward, show-your-ankle length that drives me insane… Well, tall girls, I have found the answer: the Burgundy Print Draped Maxi Dress by the trendy online boutique, PinkBlush!

Main reasons for loving this dress:

  1. It is long enough for tall girls – size Small, which is what I am wearing, measures 58 inches from high point of shoulder to hem–wahoooo!
  2. It is very flattering on your figure as the dress is draped, so it is perfect for brunch when you want all that yummy food. 🙂 The sash can be ties tight for waist definition or kept looser for a more comfortable feel.
  3. The material feels very gentle against your skin.
  4. The colors and pattern – both are perfect for Fall, so this dress would be making it to the office with me this coming season!
  5. Bonus for NEW MAMAS: The V-neckline and crossover design makes this dress perfect for nursing.

Happy almost-weekend, lovelies!

New Girl

Hi lovelies,

Are you fans of the show “New Girl?” I love the light and easy humor and tend to watch an episode or two after viewing something a bit heavier like “House of Cards” or “Breaking Bag!”

Well, for those of you who do love “New Girl” the photos from this week are taken in front of Nick’s Bar–the Griffin!

The other new girl reference is to this good-looking olive green dress, from PinkBlush, as she is the “new girl” in my wardrobe. As I have said before, I ADORE summer, but this classy beauty is making me look forward to Fall days a cooler temps. It is perfect for the office or a dinner date night. The under-the-knee length is excellent for any occasion, the olive green lace material is textured for added visual appeal and the fitted silhouette hugs your curves to perfection. PinkBlush Olive Midi, Lucky brand Bag, Lucky Brand Hat, Ray-Ban Clubrounds, Banana Reppublic Heels (10)PinkBlush Olive Midi, Lucky brand Bag, Lucky Brand Hat, Ray-Ban Clubrounds, Banana Reppublic Heels (14)PinkBlush Olive Midi, Lucky brand Bag, Lucky Brand Hat, Ray-Ban Clubrounds, Banana Reppublic Heels (5)PinkBlush Olive Midi, Lucky brand Bag, Lucky Brand Hat, Ray-Ban Clubrounds, Banana Reppublic Heels (17)

The dress is double-lined to prevent sheerness and pairs up perfectly with other earthy tones, such as beige, different shades of browns, burgundy, cream. Metallics would also partner up well with the dress as it has a tad bit of a shine in some areas on the lace. This outfit makes me feel elegant and sophisticated in a way any woman in her 30s and 40s could appreciate.

Psssstttt, can I tell you a secret?! This dress is actually from the maternity section, but I just loved it so much, I decided to order it in hopes it would fit my body well enough, given that my belly has no reason to grow right now, hehe! I believe this olive beauty would be the perfect piece of clothing to make a mama-to-be glow and feel confidently radiant!! As humans who can grow other humans we need to remember that we are special and beautiful, so I salute you mamas, mamas-to-be, and ladies who will be mamas when the time comes! 😉  PinkBlush Olive Midi, Lucky brand Bag, Lucky Brand Hat, Ray-Ban Clubrounds, Banana Reppublic Heels (13)PinkBlush Olive Midi, Lucky brand Bag, Lucky Brand Hat, Ray-Ban Clubrounds, Banana Reppublic Heels (3)PinkBlush Olive Midi, Lucky brand Bag, Lucky Brand Hat, Ray-Ban Clubrounds, Banana Reppublic Heels (16)PinkBlush Olive Midi, Lucky brand Bag, Lucky Brand Hat, Ray-Ban Clubrounds, Banana Reppublic Heels (18)
