How to Wear Your High-Waisted Pants

Hello Lovelies,

Fashion tends to repeat itself, doesn’t it?! 30-40 years pass and we see the same trends show up. My auntie used to tell me this and I could not fathom it possible, but now I have lived enough and see that she was right indeed!! This week’s look is inspired by the high-waisted pants and in particular a plaid tapered version that caught my eye. It is funny to look back in time and remember laughing at mom’s jeans, thinking I would never wear such pants… Lo and behold, I sure am into those now–looking at my first pair of ripped mom jeans now and showing you this look whose main act is a pair of pants that sit right at my belly button!!

I saw the Plaid Tapered Pants With Strap and immediately thought: red booties, red top and a baker boy hat–chic, edgy and current with a twist of vintage! But these pants are so versatile that I decided to try two different looks, which can be achieved with a slight modification of accessories and a top to drive the ship either into a sophisticated or hip direction.

The sophisticated – for this look, I chose to pair the pants with the Elastic Trumpet Cuff Bow Tied Blouse. The femininity and elegance of this top compliments the preppy feel of the pants to create an urbane outfit! The burgundy color of the top is very suitable and pops even against the strong multi-color plaid pattern–almost like PB and J–made for one another! Add some red booties, red-framed glasses, your favorite red lip color and this look can easily take you from a day to work to happy hour with your colleagues!

The hip – bring on the “old school cool!” This pairing is exactly what emerged in my head as soon as I say the pants. “I had a vision!” To bring it to life I kept the pants and added the Contrast Half Zip Bow Tied Bodysuit in Wine Red and my favorite baker boy hat. This bodysuit is among the most comfortable ones I own. The fabric is a cotton-poly blend–super soft against your skin–always a plus in my books! I also love the vintage feel the bow tied collar, the white contrasting trim and half-zipper front detail bring. Doesn’t is all come together to bring a modish look?!

Last Minute Valentine

Hi lovelies,

❤ Happy, happy Valentine’s day week! ❤ Whatever your relationship status may be, I hope cupid sits on your shoulder and you have a great time with the person/people you love! ❤

I decided to show you this look as it is not the traditional red dress, the lace beauty in pink or the sexy little black dress, but it spells elegant with an edge to me–perfect to make any girl feel confident or special for a Valentine’s or Galentine’s date. This outfit is very sentimental to me as it features a special item that has been in my family for three generations now. Can you guess which one it is?

The Half Buttoned Velvet Floral Bodysuit – where do I begin with this suit? The print is so unique and fresh. I love the flowers in dust pink and honey yellow with touches of Mediterranean blue and olive green. Those seem to pop, but in very gentle fashion, on the black velvet fabric. The wide sleeves with wide trim give this bodysuit a kimono feel and the v-neckline and small round-dome buttons on the front add to the dainty details that make this piece so charming and feminine.

The leather skirt – I have owned this skirt for at least a year now and absolutely adore styling it as it instantly adds edge an outfit. I love the zip detail on the pockets and the asymmetrical split at the front. The leather is soft and lined, making this skirt a pleasure to wear.

The booties – these have my name on it. I am a huge fan of pointy toes, kitten heels and soft colors–put these together and you have a winning bootie in my books. Those are super comfy which is a HUGE plus.

It’s the clutch – the sentimental piece, this clutch is very dear to my heart–it is the engagement present my grandpa made my grandma–how special is that. It is snakeskin and every detail is so eloquent and refined! “They don’t make them like this any more!” is a phrase fit for this situation! ❤

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!

GOZON Serenity Velvet Midi Dress, Zaful Round Glasses, OTK Boots, Spring Trends (11)Gozon Floral and Lace Bell Sleeve Top, Wide Leg Jeans, WHite Pumps, Calvin Klein Sunglasses, Lucky brand Bag, Spring 2018 (4)

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! ❤

How to Wear Your Tweed Overall Dress

Hello lovelies,

Hope your week has been going well. Mine is a tad bit crazy at work–longer hours, so this girl is feeling a slightly tired. However, I did not want to miss the opportunity to share with you my latest cute find – the SHEIN Fringe Detail Tweed Overall Dress!

SHEIN Fringe Detail Tweed Overall Dress, Dolche Vita Bag, Zara Red Booties (11)SHEIN Fringe Detail Tweed Overall Dress, Dolche Vita Bag, Zara Red Booties (7)SHEIN Fringe Detail Tweed Overall Dress, Dolche Vita Bag, Winter Trends

Tweed is a great fabric for winter, however this dress is so light that is would definitely make appearance in my spring outfits. I would wear it even during the summer, but I have to admit that it is a bit too short for me to feel comfortable wearing this cutie unless I am layering it over some leggings. I gravitated to this unique number, because it has the funnest black and white print that could pretty much fit anything and everything in your wardrobe. It looks amazing with a black top, but would also pear beautifully with a red or yellow one, even some black and white stripes would go hand in hand with this overall dress. I was also drawn to this tweed dress by its fringe details, which appear not just at the bottom and top hem, but also around the waist and pockets. Another charm of the dress is that you can wear the front in the back as vise versa–it makes sense in either direction! 😀 Oh, and did I mention it is under $15?!?

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.

The Heavy and The Light Weight

Hello lovelies,

How was your weekend? Did you get to do anything exciting?

I have been thinking about what sort of dresses I like to wear during the winter time and since Los Angeles winters are not as harsh, we have to keep our wardrobes suitable for temperatures in the high 50s F as well as those in the high 80s F. So today, I offer you a light and a heavy winter dress option.

The Heavy WeightCable-knit Turtleneck Sweater Dress – this beauty is SO warm it is sure to be the perfect partner for a snow storm or a freezing front moving your way. The material it is knit from is pretty thick and it also has the coziest turtleneck, which would keep you covered without the need to add a scarf. You can layer the dress over your leggings and undershirt, add OTK boots and a coat and you are ready to conquer a cold day in style. I also love the cable-skit patterns and this easy-to-fit-any-wardrobe mocha color. The day I wore the sweater dress was not super cold, so I was able to combine it with my boots and added a belt for some waist definition. This is a “one-size” item. I am 5’9 and it fits me well, but I had to close the side-slips as these were coming up a little too high on me, however if you are a bit shorter those would add some visual interest too!

The Light WeightMarled Knit Cowl Neck Ribbed Pencil Dress – I had my eye on this dress for a couple of months and wondered whether it is thin or thick–now that I have it I can tell you that it it lighter and would be perfect for warmer winter days (accompanied with a coat, boots, and some tights), as well as most spring and fall days. I love how elegant the dress looks – it has a metallic streak running trough its knit, ribbed fabric and accentuates your curves with its fitted silhouette. The combination of a midi-length and cowl neck bring additional class to this garment. This past weekend was very warm, so I got to wear the dress with red pumps during the day and suede high boots in the evening.

Hello, Valentine! <3

Happy Monday, Lovelies!

Hope your weekend was filled with relaxation, or adventures, better yet–both! It always passes super fast for me and I am glad we have the day off today, in celebration of MLK day, as I still have tons on my to-do list.

Since ❤ Valentine’s day ❤ is just around the corner, this week I decided to show you a “killer outfit” that is sure to “knock him dead” in the best way possible! It is sexy and classy, it is trendy and chic, an eye-catcher that would evoke the questions “who is she?” and the desire in girls to try out this look.

I decided on an all-black leather-rich outfit, with a pop or red in the shoes, bag and, of course, the lips. So what are the piece that bring this look to life?

The main act: Black 3/4 Sleeve Women’s Co-Ords – where do I begin with this leather two-piece?! I have to say I adore the cat-woman feel it gives. The skirt is so classy with its tea length, high waist and pencil silhouette! The leather material gives it that extra oomph I crave to add to any of my outfits. It also had a bow belt, which could be tied in the back, as I have done, or at the front, as the model on the web site has, which gives you options to play with and diversifies the looks you can create. Let’s not forget about the corset top of this co-ord!! It fits to perfection and adds an unexpected twist to the outfit, doesn’t it?! It has panels of leather and suede, a golden-colored zip enclosure, and funky black and white straps. This top adds to the edginess and coolness of the look!

The supporting actor: Mesh Panel Faux Leather Jacket – this piece stole my heart away with its numerous beautiful details. Take a look at the scalloped neckline–isn’t is gorgeously unique!? And the mesh and leather sleeves add so much visual interest. But stay put, the amazing details do not stop at the front! The mesh detail and rounded edges are incorporated in the back of the jacket as well, where a gold plate accentuates a tighter waist to give you a slender figure. It is the perfect partner to the leather two-piece! You can use code LauraZF to receive 10% off  this jacket and your ZAFUL order.

The supporting actress: Black Bell Sleeve Slim T-Shirt – you may remember this top from a few of my prior posts–it fits with so many different outfits as it is slender and does not steal the show, but rather adds to the charm of a look with its beautiful bell sleeves.

The cherry on top: well I guess it is more the two cherries on top:

(a) this awesome Baker Boy Hat – I have always been a fan of hats and this one is riding on the cusp of the newspaper boy hat fashion front. It fits perfectly, it made of cotton, and has the cutest feather brooch feature.

(b) the Full Rims Cat Eye Sunglasses – don’t know about you, but I always appreciate a good pair of sunglasses as my eyes are pretty sensitive and tend to tear, unless they are protected. This pair of cat eyes is not only fashion-forward, but also large enough to keep you well-guarded from the sun.

Flowers in January – Why Not?

Hello lovelies,

Are you willing to try something new this month? I guess I did, without even realizing it till I sat down to write this post. Yes, I wore florals in January–for the first time!! And this spectacular dress made me do it, hehe.

I discovered this green beauty as I was browsing us.vip.com. It stood out to me with its multiple feminine touches and details that called my name. So what is it that spoke to me?

  1. The tie neck collar – there is something about a bow around the neck that adds so much charm to a piece, be it a dress or a blouse. It is soft and feminine with a touch of sophistication!VIPshop MISS LI BY NAWAIN Green Women's Dress, Winter 2018 Trends (4)
  2. The pleated skirt – it adds so much charm and visual interest to the A-line silhouette of the Green Women’s Dress.
  3. The pleated bell sleeves – in perfect sink with the bottom body of the dress and definitely in sync with the latest fashion trends!VIPshop MISS LI BY NAWAIN Green Women's Dress, Winter 2018 Trends (11)
  4. The pretty floral print on this deep green base – the red and muted orange create a saddle and soothing print, which is sure to catch attention without screaming loudly.
  5. The beautiful buttons front – it is all in the details and this dress has so many beautiful ones including the brass dome-shaped front closure buttons, which in no way would destruct you from the beauty of the dress.Lapel Open Front Wool Blend Coat by ZAFUL, VIPshot Green Women's Dress. Winter Fashion 2018 (2)
  6. The length – you know I am a huge fan of midis – those are great for most occasions – from a day in the office, to cocktail hour to a dinner date or a charitable event – a midi can do it all.

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!!

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.
