Spring Finds

Hello lovelies,

Hope this week has been treating you well! It seems like summer has arrived in LA and I could not be happier that we are getting 80 degree temperatures–I am such a sucker for the SUN!

Of course, this weather requites spring attire and for this week’s posts (Monday’s is here) I have partnered with a contemporary boutique for women’s clothing, headquartered right here in Los Angeles–Gozon.com!

First meet the Serenity Velvet Midi Dress… She is a show-stopper that drew me in with  that unique velvet texture in mauve color. Her silhouette is simple, yet commands attention every time you take a look! The ruffled sleeves add to the feminine charm of this piece without overpowering it. It has just the right dose of proper and sexy to make any woman feel beautiful! The Serenity Velvet Midi also comes in grey and looks just as gorgeous in it. I decided on the mauve as it caught my eye and sang a spring song in my ear! 🙂 If you are just as in love with this dress as I am you can use code “MARIETA15” to receive 15% off your purchase from Gozon boutique!

Second, for all of you boho souls out there, the Floral and Lace Bell Sleeve Top is pure spring perfection! There are so many details to entertain the eye here, the off -the-shoulder cut, the oversized bell sleeves, beautifully combining delicate crochet, lace and floral embroidery detailing. This top feels so breezy and will keep you cool on a warm day, but would also work with a cami underneath if you need an additional layer. To complete the free-spirit look of the boho top I combined it with wide legged jeans, but it also works perfectly with my skinny ones, and I can imagine it pairing up beautifully with a peasant skirt or ripped denim shorts. Check it out, it also comes in black.

Maxi Dress Time

Hello lovelies,

I know it is only February, but I am itching for spring. The temperatures in LA have been on the high for the season and I just cannot help but think “SPRING”!!!

A piece that I had never thought about as being a great one to include in my transitional winter-to-spring wardrobe is a MAXI dress–although it makes perfect sense–it is long enough to cover your legs and combines perfectly with jackets, sweaters, shirts, you name it… Soooo, I recently partnered with Gozon.com – a women’s contemporary boutique, headquartered right here in Los Angeles, and discovered the simple and elegant Solid Maxi Dress.

What is it that I love about this maxi and how can I wear it now and well into sprint and even summer?

  1. OK, I have to start with how comfy this dress is. It is made of the softest rayon material, which gives you the feeling of your favorite jammies, but falls beautifully to create an elongated silhouette. Which brings me to the next reason I enjoy the dress
  2. The Empire waist cut of the Solid Maxi Dress is very flattering on any body type and perfect for all those brunch dates when we want to sit down, have a mimosa while munching on some chilaquiles, and would not miss dessert for the life of us! This piece will carry you trough brunch and the aftermath of it gracefully.
  3. Have I mentioned the pockets!? Yes, those are seamless, but an option for your hands on a cooler day or just “’cause you feel like it!” 😉
  4. I am 5’9′ and finding a maxi that is the right length is a challenge. Tall ladies, fear not–the Solid Maxi Dress excels at this and actually is a bit long even on me–so excited about that–I can ever wear it with heels! 😀
  5. The Solid Maxi Dress comes in four colors–all perfect for spring. I went with black as it reminded me of a favorite maxi I had in high school many, many years ago.
  6. Care about “made in the U.S.”? Well this dress is! And so are most of Gozon.com products.
  7. The dress is so versatile! It combines beautifully with a my  favorite Daily Baseball Sweater Top for a casual look, rocks with my embroidered jacket for an edgy feel, and would suit up beautifully with a blazer for a more polished look.

The stripped sleeves add visual interest to this comfy and stylish sweater making it the perfect bring-along top for a cooler spring morning or evening. The multi-color stripes in a combination with the neutral-colored body also give your endless pairing possibilities. I have some yellow pants I cannot wait to wear this sweater with! ❤

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.

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!

Two of my Favorite Things

Hello, beautiful people!

So what are two of my favorite things? Mid-week and mid-August? Hehe! Almost, although this time I will be talking about LACE and EMBROIDERY details. This week’s outfit has both and is a casual look I know I will be sporting from now till there are warm Fall days to enjoy.

Stay Warm in Style Blouse, Lucky Brand Ripped Boyfriend Jeans, BEBE BAG, Lucky Brand Floppy Hat, Calvin Klein Cateye Sunglasses, Banana Republic HeelsStay Warm in Style Blouse, Lucky Brand Ripped Boyfriend Jeans, Lucky Brand Floppy Hat

Let’s dice this look into its comprising pieces:

  • Jenny Surplice Blouse – this is one of my newest summer-to-fall additions. This blouse is so boho chic and “had me at its sleeves!” The lace detailing and the bell shape spoke to me from the moment I say this blouse on Stay Warm in Style’s page. I find the light mauve color so feminine and trendy, at the same time, as it has a “washed off” flair. The third favorite feature is the V-neckline with cross string detailing–adds to the “happening now” vibe of the blouse.Stay Warm in Style Blouse, Lucky Brand Ripped Boyfriend Jeans, Lucky Brand EarringsStay Warm in Style Blouse, Raymond Weil Watch, Sundance Silver RingStay Warm in Style Blouse Lucky Brand Ripped Boyfriend Jeans Lucky Brand Floppy Hat BEBE Bag Lucky Brand Earrings
  • Sienna Slim Boyfriend Jean – what is there not to love about these jeans? They are ripped, embroidered, comfy, have an aged, broken-in feel and pair up perfectly with the Jenny Blouse. Not only do they both ooze a boho vibe as one of the embroidered flower’s color is the perfect match with the top’s color.   BEBE Handbag, Stay Warm in Style Blouse, Lucky Brand Ripped Boyfriend Jeans, Lucky Brand Floppy Hat, Calvin Klein Cateye Sunglasses, Banana Republic PumpsStay Warm in Style Blouse, Lucky Brand Ripped Boyfriend Jeans, Lucky Brand Floppy Hat, Calvin Klein Cateye Sunglasses, Lucky Brand EarringsLucky Brand Ripped Boyfriend Jeans Lucky Brand Floppy Hat Calvin Klein Cateye Sunglasses Banana Republik Pumps Stay Warm in Style Blouse
  • Floppy Hat – these are such a great accessory for Fall. A hat can add so much edge to an outfit and I feel like this one competes the look. It features a braided leather band with beaded tassel trim and a five-inch brim.

From Cocoon to a Beautiful Midi

Hello, beauties!

Happy mid-week! Doesn’t is feel joyous to know you are getting over the hump and half-way trough to the weekend?! On that note let me share a few fun facts about a fabric I love–SILK!

MERISU Silk Green Midi Dress, Nude Clutch, Banana Republic Gold Heels, Polaroid Round Glasses, Summer 2017oord_in_style_MERISU Silk Green Midi Dress, Nude Clutch, Banana Republic Gold Heels, Polaroid Round Glasses, Lucky brand Jewelryoord_in_style_MERISU Midi Dress, Nude Clutch, Banana Republic Gold Heels, Polaroid Round Glasses, Nordstrom Sale

Did you know that silk is obtained from the cocoons of the larvae of the mulberry silkworm? It is a natural protein fiber that can be woven into fabric. Silk textile was first developed in ancient China and has been considered a luxurious material since 3630 BC, but is currently widely used in the medical field as well (magical properties, I tell ya!). It is very comfortable to wear in warm weather and while active, because it is very absorbent. It is also great for cold weather, as its low conductivity keeps warm air close to the skin. OK, so why am I going on and on about silk?!? Well, because I am in love with my new silk midi dress from METISU.

Why is this dress my new favorite?

  • Silk is perfect for the summer heat and it does indeed give the dress a luxurious look, while my skin enjoys its softness;
  • If you have read my prior article you know I love dresses that can go from a day in the office to a night out and this one fits the bill as it has midi length, half-sleeve, scoop neckline that all feels conservatively-elegant;
  • The dress may look simple, but has so many details to enjoy: paneled design, tied waist, a split front and pockets! Yes, pockets – and I so LOVE having those!! Let’s be honest – I never use them as such, but just knowing they are there makes me feel cool!
  • The color is not something you see every day and I know I will be wearing this dress well into Fall (when the weather permits that is) as it combined perfectly with earthy neutrals.

Abstract Floral Story

Hello lovelies!

Hope your week has been going great and that you have some exciting plans for the upcoming weekend.

Since we are in the heat of summer and florals are huge during this season I wanted to introduce you to a floral midi dress with a twist, by METISU. I find this abstract pattern to be very artistic and inspiring. The flowers have a beautifully undefined shape and colors that flow from one flower to the other. The pops of brighter red and green stand out from the more muted earthy, tobacco tones and black background. This unusual color story gives you countless possibilities when it comes to accessories. I chose a blue Chanel bag and gold heels, but black, green, red or any neutral toned bag and shoes would also compliment this pretty dress very well.

The crew neck, midi length, and half-sleeve make this dress perfect for work, whereas the slim-fitting, elegant silhouette and side slid perfect it for “play”! I wore it in the office, followed by a performance at the Disney Concert Hall–it suited both occasions to the t!

Daytime Wedding

Hello lovelies,

Do I hear wedding bells? Yes, with summer comes wedding season and beautiful white dresses that we all want to wear all day, every day… But is it against the rules to be a wedding guest and wear a white dress? After all white and ivory are reserved for the bride and it is her day to shine. If you know the bride is more traditional I would recommend that you opt out of white and choose a pretty dress in a different color – blush is beautiful and still going strong this season, yellow is always cheerful and another great color for a summer day wedding, and mint green is soft and sophisticated – just to list a few.

However, if you know your bride is not one to care for the rules and has chosen a more contemporary approach to her wedding, then perhaps you can step into your white dress and enjoy her special day! Here are a few rules to help you make the right choice:

  1. Would the bride be in white or ivory?
  2. Do you know the bride well enough to ask her what she thinks of you white dress?
  3. Does your white dress look like something you would wear to your wedding shower?
  4. Is your dress made from lace, tulle, or any other fabric that resembles a wedding gown?
  5. Is your dress floor-length?

If you answer to questions 1, 3, 4, and 5 was “YES”, then think twice. If your answer to 2 was “YES”, then take a photo of your dress and share it with the bride.

  6. This dress does not need jewelry – it speaks for itself. All you can add are some pearl earrings and a ring.
  7. The lace is not floral in pattern and hence does not resemble a bridal dress lace fabric.ootd_in_style METISU White Hollow Out Flounce Hem Midi Dress Detail, Wedding, Nordstrom Saleootd_in_style METISU White Hollow Out Flounce Hem Midi Dress, Nordstrom Saleootd_in_style METISU White Hollow Out Flounce Hem Midi Dress, Wedding, Nordstrom Sale, Polaroid Round Sunglasses
  8. It pairs up perfectly with any bag – depending on the occasion! I chose this Sam Edelman navy and grey clutch with a silver chain as the rest of my jewels were silver. ootd_in_style METISU White Hollow Out Flounce Hem Midi Dress, Nordstrom Sale, Wedding, Sam Edelman Clutch, BCBG Shoes
  9. It is easy to put together with any heels! I chose a pair of BCBG peep toes in a navy, green, grey and white print, one I believe a bride would not wear with her wedding dress (in an effort not to look bridal.) This pair also matched up the clutch rounding off my accessories nicely.  ootd_in_style METISU White Hollow Out Flounce Hem Midi Dress BCBG Peet Toes, Weddingootd_in_style METISU White Hollow Out Flounce Hem Midi Dress, Nordstrom Sale, Polaroid Round Sunglassesootd_in_style METISU White Hollow Out Flounce Hem Midi Dress (11)
