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.

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! 🙂

Blush into Fall

Hello lovelies,

I have been thinking about Fall fashion and the fact that I do not want to give up pretty colors because summer is over. One of those colors dear to my heart it blush–it is so soft and feminine and could work perfectly with a light fall color palette of creams and beiges, as well as soft grays!

VIP.com Blush Midi Dress, H&M Velvet Flats, Clubrounds, Ralph Lauren Handbag, Starfish Project JewelsVIP.com Blush Midi Dress, Clubrounds, Ralph Lauren Handbag, Starfish Project JewelsVIP.com Blush Midi Dress, Pearl Detail, Starfish Project Necklace

Today I am showing you a look that combined all blush with some cream and denim. This dress from VIP.com is the main act and outfit inspiration. I could not help, but fall in love with the soft lines it forms and that beautiful pear detail along the sleeves and on the belt. Don’t you think it is darling? Once I received the dress I could also appreciate how soft and comfy it is (I am not a huge fan of pretty clothing that is torturous to wear!).

I also loved how the elegance of the point toe added to the sophistication of the dress. Since I want to wear this dress now and for the next few months, and believe it or not, it gets cold in the morning and evening even in LA, I added a denim blazer. I chose a blazer vs a regular jean jacket as I wanted to stay in the slightly more elegant realm. To finish the outfit off I added some pretty jewels, a cream bag and some sunnies.

The shirt that has it all!

Hello lovelies,

Happy October! Pumpkins are now front and center in all stores, houses are decorated with those and the smell of pumpkin spice lattes is sure to catch your nose everywhere you go–still cannot believe how fast September few by! You?

ROMWE Vertical Stripe Embroidered Ruffle Shirt, Armani High Rise Denim Skirt, Banana Republic Golden Pumps, CK Sunglasses, Fall 2017 (17)ROMWE Vertical Stripe Embroidered Ruffle Shirt, Armani High Rise Denim Skirt, Banana Republic Golden Pumps, CK Sunglasses, Fall 2017 (10)ROMWE Vertical Stripe Embroidered Ruffle Shirt, Armani High Rise Denim Skirt, Banana Republic Golden Pumps, CK Sunglasses, Fall 2017 (19)

This week I have partnered with ROMWE to bring you the perfect Fall shirt! It really has got it all: vertical stripes, embroidery, ruffles, a Victorian collar and an overall style that is suitable to take to work or run errands in during the weekend!

Let’s talk about each feature:

  • Vertical stripes were BIG in the 80’s and have made a major comeback the past couple of seasons. The ones on this shirt are a smaller size which give it an office-appropriate feel I like, as I have to dress up for work Monday trough Friday.
  • Embroidery is another trend that has been going strong for the past coupe of seasons. We have seen embroidery on jeans, tops, jackets, and now even booties. The flower embroidery on this shirt is very appropriate for Fall as the colors are in beautiful earthy tones. ROMWE Vertical Stripe Embroidered Ruffle Shirt, Armani High Rise Denim Skirt, Banana Republic Golden Pumps, CK Sunglasses, Fall 2017 (16)
  • There is a ruffle that runs from the front middle of the shirt all around trough its back, adding yet another feminine touch to this pretty shirt!ROMWE Vertical Stripe Embroidered Ruffle Shirt, Armani High Rise Denim Skirt, Banana Republic Golden Pumps, CK Sunglasses, Fall 2017 (8)
  • Should you decide to button up this ROMWE shirt, you would display the Victorian collar, which has an additional ruffle further enhancing the girlishness of this piece. ROMWE Vertical Stripe Embroidered Ruffle Shirt, Armani High Rise Denim Skirt, Banana Republic Golden Pumps, CK Sunglasses, Fall 2017 (11)

To achieve this office-appropriate look, I decided to pair the shirt with a pencil denim skirt, golden open-toe pumps and a blue and gold Chanel bag. This shirt would look amazing with some high-rise dark wash, red or white jeans and a pair of booties–looks I am sure I will share with you later on this season. ROMWE Vertical Stripe Embroidered Ruffle Shirt, Armani High Rise Denim Skirt, Banana Republic Golden Pumps, CK Sunglasses, Fall TrendsROMWE Vertical Stripe Embroidered Ruffle Shirt, Armani High Rise Denim Skirt, Banana Republic Golden Pumps, CK Sunglasses, Fall 2017 (18)ROMWE Vertical Stripe Embroidered Ruffle Shirt, Armani High Rise Denim Skirt, Banana Republic Golden Pumps, CK Sunglasses, Fall 2017 (14)

Vintage Gingham

Hello lovelies,

Has has your week been thus far? Mine has been a bit nutty… Let’s just say, I am looking forward to the weekend, hehe! 🙂

VIP.com A-line Gingham Paneled Dress and Calvin Klein Red Sunglasses, Trendy, OOTD in Style, Outfit of the DayVIP.com Gingham Paneled Dress, Lucky Brand Kabott Heel Booties, Dolce Vita Suede Bag and Calvin Klein Red Sunglasses

I was not planning on writing a post today, but putting on this gingham midi dress (VIP.com) in the morning really inspired me. So what is a girl to do but grab her mom away from babysitting duties and ask her to jump into her photographer shoes!

As I was going trough my closet I needed to find something that would work for a day in the office and would transition well to a dinner with a friend I am meeting after. And there is was–my vintage charmer! Why do I say VINTAGE? The dress is brand new but gives me a very 20’s-50’s feel–the shape, the length, the print.

  • The Shape – As a matter of fact the term A-line was first introduced by Christian Dior as the label for his spring 1955 collection. The silhouette, as we know it today, was popularized by Yves Saint Laurent three years later. In his spring 1958 line, he showed off dresses which flared out vividly from a fitted shoulder line.VIP.com A-line Gingham Paneled Dress, Lucky Brand Kabott Heel Booties, Dolce Vita Suede Bag and OOTD in StyleVIP.com A-line Gingham Paneled Midi, and Calvin Klein Red Sunglasses
  • The Print – Gingham as a checkered pattern originated from the mills of Manchester, England where fabric was woven in a plaid pattern sometime during the 18th sentry. VIP.com A-line Gingham Paneled Dress, Lucky Brand Kabott Heel Booties, Raymond Weil Watch and Calvin Klein Red Sunglasses, Vintage, Trendy, Fall, Outfit of the Day
  • The Length – The midi first came on the scene in the 1920’s after WWI was over and before the Great Depression hit. The economy was doing well, the world was out dancing, and ladies replaced their modest Victorian floor-length garments with midi dresses and skirts. VIP.com A-line Gingham Paneled Dress, and Calvin Klein Red SunglassesVIP.com Gingham Paneled Dress, Lucky Brand Kabott Heel Booties, Dolce Vita Suede Bag and Calvin Klein Red Sunglasses Vintage, Outfit of the Day, Fall Style

Enough history for now… A bit more of what I like about this dress… The panel detail brings a lot of visual interest, and so does the delicate ruffle around the solid sweetheart portion of the neckline, which continues up into a mesh section around the shoulders and neck. The mesh detailing is also repeated around the high waistline, which creates a nice bodes-like top. The pleats under the waist line add volume and make me want to twirl all day long… I can go on and on…

State Your Case in Ruffles, Tulle and Lace

Hello lovelies!

Have you tried something that is totally out of your comfort zone, but you find so pretty that you decide to take a leap of faith and place that order? I love form-fitting dresses and skirts–my go to dresses are sheath and skirt, yes, you guessed it–pencil! However, I recently partnered with VIP.com and discovered the most beautiful, A-line, black paneled sweet skirt. This skirt captured my attention with its enchanting details.

The three panels design is genius and give this piece so much visual interest! Let’s deconstruct each one and see what it adds to the charm of such a lovely skirt:

  • The top-most layer is pleated, and we all know pleated skirts have been right on trend since spring and going strong onto fall! Not only that, but it it pleated tulle, which allows the next texture to shine trough.
  • The middle layer is of gorgeous lace which is just about as long as the pleated tulle and shows off beautifully as you move.
  • The third and solid layer is a bit shorter to allow the light to go trough the tulle and hit the lace layer, while giving you enough length to make this skirt an elegant and classy piece fit for a night at the theater or a day in the office!

I partnered this skirt with a feminine yellow ruffle blouse. It caught my eye with a tough of Victorian charm, ruffled front detail, beautiful pearl-like buttons, and it’s gentle floral pattern combining greens, whites, blues, and burgundies on a lovely mustard-hued background, which allows the pattern to speak in their fall tones. The blouse also screamed to me: “I will be the perfect partner to your new pleated skirt!” I could not agree more and ordered both with a vision of an outfit coming together as one classy and feminine look that carries so many of my favorite details, subtle enough not to overpower one another!

To complete the look, I paired my new VIP.com finds with mustard yellow pumps, round glasses, and a cream leather satchel. I also noticed that I was not the only one who loved these items as they are both sold out at the moment. I have linked a couple of similar skirts and blouses below.

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.

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.

Falling for Fall

Hello lovelies,

How has your week been? Temperatures here have hit 100F the past few days, and although Fall is around the corner it sure does not feel that way.

As much as I want to hold onto summer, seasons change… Embracing Fall has to happen and what better way that IN STYLE! 🙂 Isn’t it funny how one wardrobe find can get you excited for what it ahead?! This teal green midi dress by METISU did it for me–it has made me “fall for Fall!!”

This dress immediately grabbed my eye with it’s classy silhouette–simple yet feminine, not lacking details, yet keeping those from stealing all of the attention and rather speaking to the appeal of the dress as a whole. The puff sleeves, bow belt decoration, and front stitching add definition to the waist and bring in a feeling of vintage charm. Here, I have styled this dress for a day at the office, but could see myself adding a boater hat and turning it into my main act for a boho Sunday look!
