I like being cozy any season, but there is something extra cozy that I look for in winter clothing–I desire that softness which keeps me warm, comfy and if it looks cute then, hey, I have a winner!! That is exactly how I feel about SHEIN’s High Neck Drawstring Waist Heather Knit Dress. The middy length and turtle neck provide essential coverage to keep you away from the frost biting ability of this season’s weather. The draw string waist adds definition to the smallest area of your body and the ruffled bottom adds femininity and character to this cozy piece. The burgundy color pulls you away from being stuck in the winter blacks (so guilty of that!!) and the pretty silhouette makes this dress perfect for a day in the office or a Sunday brunch with friends. Once I put the High Neck Drawstring Waist Heather Knit Dress on I didn’t really want to take it off–the cotton-polyester fabric is so soft that it feels like you are wearing your favorite joggers and top.

Are you ready for Christmas? Is it just around the corner and in an blink of an eye 2018 would come to a close. It is amazing how fast time flies the older one gets–let’s appreciate the last few days of the year and make sweet memories! 🙂
Speaking of Christmas, this year I want to wear something different–something festive, yet not screaming HOLIDAYS, but making me feel like I am in the magic of a winter wonderland. When I laid my eyes on the SHEIN Whipstitch Trim Tweed Dress, I knew that was it!! The dress is not red or green, it is not plaid and does not have excessive sparkle, but is elegant and whimsical in a very classy manner. Tweed material is very appropriate for the season and the off white color makes me feel like a snow queen. I like the subtle trim details as well – introducing gold and black, which allow you to play with accessories in both of those colors. The sheath silhouette adds to the elegance of the dress and of course you know I am a fan of natural fabrics, so that fact that this dress is 80% cotton also had a pull on my heart. 🙂 If you like the Whipstitch Trim Tweed Dress you can purchase it at 20% off by using the cupon code ootdi20, which you can actually use on any purchase from us.shein.com.
One thing to keep in mind is that if you are tall (I am 5’9), you may choose to size up. I ordered a size Small and feel like the mama in me would have liked just a bit more length and width, hehe. 😉
What are you wearing for Christmas?
Do you like Salsa dancing? I am a huge FAN and cannot wait to learn more steps and perhaps one day spin on the dance floor like those beautiful professionals can (yeah, a girl can dream, right?!?)
Well, when I saw the SHEIN Ruffle Cold Shoulder Layered Hem Dress, SALSA emerged in my head right away… It is sexy, yet not over-the-top, lets me feel like I am on fire in the coolest way possible, and makes me want to dance!! So let’s break this down:
“Sexy, yet not over-the-top”: The dress hugs your curves and has a cold-shoulder element, but is knee length allowing you to feel sexy without exposing too much leg or cleavage.
“On fire in the coolest way possible”: The burgundy red color and the sheath nature of the dress make you feel like an explosive powerhouse, yet one composed, beautiful and in control. 🙂
“Makes me want to dance”: The ruffles around the hem and the shoulder detail add so much movement to the dress–it is like it was created to lead you to the dance floor!

Summer makes me so happy, I really don’t want it to ever end. I know, I know… I live in LA and there is nothing too severe about the other three seasons here. I am just one of those people that loves going to the beach, loves warm and light evenings, eats watermelon and peaches till her tummy feels like exploding, and is willing to deal with the insane mid-day heat in order to reap the rest of the benefits of summer. And “YES!” dresses are one of those benefits.
Today’s look is inspired by comfort–a level of easy wear that is pretty at the same time–a win-win in my books. The main act is the Blue Off Neckline Long Sleeve 3/4 Length A Line Women’s Dress by us.vip.com. It is so chic, girly and pleasant to wear! I also adore all the details this dress wows us with:
- Off the shoulder with a twist–not in your most traditional and expected way, the OTS detail here looks like a shirt collar and adds so much visual interest to this piece. There also are straps which help hold the dress up and camouflage your bra straps, however if you don’t like the strap look you can hide those just as successfully.
- Top button front–a major trend this summer, which also draws your eye to the dress without screaming loudly at all.
- Pockets–ahhh, any dress with pockets makes me smile. I also love the pocket flap and button detail present here–somehow it adds an unexpected semi-formal twist to this chic dress.
- Draw string waist line–makes it easy to define the thinnest part of your body and looks good even after a Sunday brunch! 😉
- A-line silhouette and soft material–the combination of those two produces a swing dress that makes me want to twirl and twirl like a little girl in the middle of a candy store. The fabric is so soft–real pleasure to wear.
If you have not visited us.vip.com you should do so–they have so many beautiful items and amazing prices right now. You can purchase a genuine leather handbag for under $20!!! ALSO, use coupon code Marieta1142 for $5 OFF on orders over $50.

Happy August, lovelies!
Hello lovelies and happy new week!
Have you though about replacing your beach cover up with an actual dress? I tend to do that almost 90% of the time as I like having an outfit that can carry me trough the day, from a morning/afternoon playing in the sand and the waves to an early dinner or drinks at my favorite food and cocktail spot.
Meet my latest partner in beach-going to restaurant-hopping crime – the SHEIN Lace Trim Eyelet Embroidered Dress. She is cute, fun and easy-going, breads in sunshine and exhales vacation vibes! She is made with 100% cotton material and her light and breezy fit and flare silhouette is sure to keep you cool while looking hot! 😉 The body of this beautiful A-line dress is made by an eyelet fabric, trimmed by gorgeous lace around the hem, sleeves and the V-neckline. This combo creates a floral-like, soft, monochrome effect which is eye-catching and ropes you in with gentleness and femininity. This dress comes in two colors–the blush I am wearing and a white–which is equally as pleasing and visually appealing.

Would you wear the Lace Trim Eyelet Embroidered Dress to the beach? Would love to hear what you think.
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!
Hope you have has wonderful couple of weeks! My job has been keeping me hostage way over regular business hours–sometimes you just have to get over the hurdles and push trough the busy times.

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!
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!
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.

What are some of your favorite sweaters this winter? Are you a cream and white lover like me? Drop me a line and let me know.
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!!
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! 🙂
Love always, ❤
