Leopard Print -From the Catwalks to the Globes

Hello lovelies,

Hope your weekend was restful and fun at the same time. I had the opportunity to spend it with a dear friend of mine and that was a treat! 🙂

One trend that I noticed being back on the table this season is none other but the famous leopard print–it was all over the Spring/Summer 2019 catwalks from bold Saint Laurent bodysuits to silky, midi skirts by Burberry. Most recently we saw Anne Hathaway arrive to the 2019 Golden Globes looking fierce in an all-over leopard print ball gown by Elie Saab. Needless to say I got inspired to try the trend–to me leopard print is a combination of otherwise neutral colors that pack a beautifully mean punch of style into an outfit.

Sooooo, how did I get my leopard on? Well, you know I love dresses, so I opted out for the Tie Neck Leopard Print Ruffle Hem Dress. It combines two types of print – one on a smaller scale that trims the dress on the bottom, at the waist line, the neckline and the cuffs of the sleeves and a larger print which comprises the rest of the dress. I like the mixture of the two as they are placed strategically to add to the shape of this leopard print dress.

Street Smart

Hello lovelies,

How was your Thanksgiving? I hope filled with family fun, delicious treats, sweet memories and maybe some crazy-good shopping! 😉 I tried to stay away from the stores, but managed to find this super cool and smart blazer from SHEIN and a pair of distressed denim from LOFT that put together make me feel SUPER “street smart”, hehe!

Why do I love this blazer:

  1. I am a natural fabric girl and this piece is 100% cotton, so it scored huge points in my books! It is soft and breathes with you.
  2. The cut, color, pattern, and length make it perfect for work and play. The navy and plaid pattern scream classy and smartly-dressed, but not stiff or stuffy manner. You can wear the SHEIN Double Breasted Notched Neck Plaid Blazer with a white or navy dress, or dark denim pants and it will carry you straight to the office. Combine it with a pair of distressed jeans and hang out looking cool at the neighborhood coffee shop or bar.
  3. It is such a steal at $25 and if you use code “ootdi20” you will receive additional 20% off your purchase from the US SHEIN website.

Drop me a line and let me know what you think about this outfit or tell me what is your favorite buy from this weekend, even if it was a present for someone else you are super excited to give. I got something for my dad and I am excited to have his Christmas present all set.

Love Always,

Marieta

Day And Night

Hello guys,

Today I am introducing you to my new fall favorites from METISU – a dress for daytime and one for nighttime. Surprisingly their colors are flipped – the Navy Blue Striped Midi Dress With Two Pockets is my choice for your 9 to 5 and the Apricot V-neck Lace Overlay Midi Dress is for your special evening rendezvous. 🙂

What makes the Navy Blue Striped Midi Dress With Two Pockets perfect for the office:

METISU Fall 2018 Pin Striped Dress, OOTD in StyleMETISU Fall 2018 Midi Dress, OOTD in StyleMETISU Fall 2018 Dress, OOTD in Style, Trendy

  • It is conservative, but chic and feminine all at the same time. Why do I say conservative? The dress’ length is below the knee, it has an A-line silhouette, and a high neckline.
  • Despite the above attributes the dress feels powerful perhaps due to the pin stripes similar to those you would see on a suit.
  • The dress commands respect and shows strength, yet femininity shines trough as well as the cut makes you want to twirl and the tailored top hugs your curves.
  • All the little details make this dress even more special – it has pockets and shoulder epaulettes, as well as the color trim and front detail add extra chic to the character of the dress.

What makes the Apricot V-neck Lace Overlay Midi Dress perfect for an evening event:

METISU Apricot Lace Midi Dress, Fall FashionMETISU Apricot Lace Overlay Dress, Fall 2018 FashionMETISU Apricot Lace Overlay Dress, Fall Fashion (3)METISU Apricot Lace V-neck Dress, Fall 2018

  • This dress makes you look and feel like a tall glass of champagne. What brings that feeling about? The base apricot color in combination with dazzling sequins and embroidery brings on a sparkle just like bubbles do for champagne. 
  • It is classy, yet sexy. The knee-length does not reveal too much of your legs, however the cinched waist design and v-neck color extenuate your feminine figure.
  • This midi is the opposite of what is expected–not your typical LBD, but rather a bedazzled light color that will catch everyone’s eye with quiet confidence.
  • This lace overlay beauty would also be perfect for a wedding.

Have you looked into METISU‘s dresses lately? They are my absolute favorite brand when it comes to dresses.

Have a successful week, lovelies!

A Black and White Dream

Hello lovelies,

Do you ever dream in black and white? Do you like black and white photography? Do you like combining these two colors to create a sharp look that feels very stylish in a P\narisian way? If this answer to the last question is “YES” then this dress will steal your heart.

The White Strappy Neck Sleeve A Line Fitted Women’s Dress by us.vip.com is classy, chic, feminine, with just enough details to be visually appealing without any taste of garish. The tie bow neckline can be tightened into a bow or let loose like I did for the photo shoot of this piece. The black trim detailing on the baby ruffles soften the top piece of the dress and make the black and white flow with one another rather than clash in the contrast that they naturally create. Although this dress is on the shorter side it still feels very work appropriate and also transitions into a dinner/cocktail attire with ease. Please note that this dress runs small in accordance to the US sizing convention. I generally wear US size 2 or 4, but ordered this dress in size Large to make sure it fits comfortably, and I am glad I did. 🙂 I decided to pair my Parisian beauty with a pair of two-toned pumps in black and white of course. This dress would also look very stylish with plain black, summer white or even red heels and bag.

Unfortunately this dress is currently out of stock, however us.vip.com have such a wide range of beautiful garments and other dresses that I am sure you would find something that suits your style on their website. Also, you can use coupon code Marieta1142 for $5 OFF on orders over $50! 🙂

Would love to hear your thoughts on this dress or what you thought of the us.vip.com we site.

Love Always,

Marieta

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.

More Preppy Chic, Please!

Hello lovelies,

This week’s center stage is taken by the SHEIN Contrast Collar And Ruffle Cuff Tweed Dress. It is one of my new transitional pieces and I am sure I will be wearing it well into spring. This elegant dress drew me in with its fitted tweed silhouette, the ruffle detail bottom and those pretty sleeve and collar details adding tons of preppy chic. Somehow this piece has a school girls flavor mixed in with a taste of young professional.

The multi-color tweed fabric of this dress makes it suitable for accessories of many different colors. I opted for black over-the-knee boots and a black bag, but the same combination in brown would look great as well. To give the look a spring flavor you can pair the dress with white or cream booties, which would go perfectly with the collar and sleeve cuffs, and a bucket bag of the same color and voila–it is warmer weather appropriate! 🙂

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! You can use the code Marieta941 at us.vip.com to get $5 OFF on orders over $50.

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.

Preppy in Black and White

Hello lovelies,

How was your weekend? Are you now of the belief that it is January 2018? I am finally getting used to the idea – ten days later! 🙂

SHEIN Bow Tie Neck Frayed Trim Tweed Dress, Preppy, Winter 2018 (3)SHEIN Bow Tie Neck Frayed Trim Tweed Dress, Preppy, Winter 2018 (1)

Today I want to show you my favorite preppy look, whose main act is the SHEIN Bow Tie Neck Frayed Trim Tweed Dress. I have been eyeing this piece since the summer and finally managed to get my hands on it while it was in stock–yay! You may ask, but how would a summer dress work at this time of the year?! Fear not, for I have the solution!! Since the dress is a light cream color, but has a pop of black in its tie neck portion pairing it with black leggings, a black undershirt, and black suede over-the-knee boots bring it to winter season in a heartbeat. Should the day be cool just throw a black,white, red or better yet, a coat combining these colors, and voila – you’ll look like you just walked out of Princeton’s campus in style.

Besides the bow tie neck, which by now I am sure you know I am a fan of, I love the frayed trim of this dress. It helps create a fun separation detail between the fitted top and the A-line bottom of the dress and highlights it’s edges for an added oomph. It is 100% cotton which would make it perfect for any season really… and priced at only $24 for an additional comfort to your pocket–hehe. 😉 My only warning is that you may have to use a lint roller as the dress sheds some threads in the beginning – hoping those would go away once it is washed.

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)

  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.

  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.

  7. This dress is easily combines with your long winter coat.

How to Wear Your Two-Piece

Hello lovelies,

Christmas is literally round the corner and I seem to be super busy this week. The weekend flew by so fast that I could not even get my photo shooting done… Have you been running abound like a buzzzy bee?

This week I have partnered with Shein to bring you this super versatile knit two-piece. There are so may details of both the top and the bottom that I truly enjoy and guess what this set looks great together as well as in a combo with other pieces you already have in your wardrobe.

SHEIN Double V Neckline Peplum Knitwear With Skirt, Lucky Brand Myra Leather Satchel, Klasse 14 Miss VolareSHEIN Double V Neckline Peplum Knitwear With Skirt, Two-Piece, Fashion Trends, Winter FashionLucky Brand Myra Leather Satchel, SHEIN Double V Neckline Peplum Knitwear With Skirt, Two-Piece, Winter FashionSHEIN Double V Neckline Peplum Knitwear With Skirt, Lucky Brand Myra Leather Satchel, Clarks Women's Pump

The top – it is knit and yet peplum, which gives one such a pretty line and waist definition. There is a little split at the bottom front which adds a unique feminine touch. The double V neckline is not super deep, so cold air is not going to rush in and make you feel the frost of winter. I have already worn this top as a stand alone sweater, with a pair of black jeans, a nice blush scarf and pointy toe boots!

The skirt – It is just the right midi length and also has a split, but in the back, so it makes the skirt easy to walk in, yet appropriate length for the office. I also am a fan of the fact that it is a pencil skirt as that is the silhouette I tend to gravitate to. You can combine this skirt with a knit black turtleneck sweater or a purple tie neck silk shirt and it would fit beautifully with either!

Overall perks – the grey color is neutral and pretty to combine with red, black, blue, white, purple, you name it! The material is super soft and comfy to wear, while being thick enough to keep you warm. The co-ord will give you a bang for your buck as you can wear the pieces together or as two separates, giving you endless possibilities for just $33!

Have you purchased a two-piece lately? I now own a few and have enjoyed their sheer versatility. Check out more two-piece ideas here.
