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.

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.

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.

VIPshop MISS LI BY NAWAIN Green Women's Dress, Winter 2018 Trends (5)VIPshop MISS LI BY NAWAIN Green Women's Dress, Winter 2018 Trends (9)Lapel Open Front Wool Blend Coat by ZAFUL, VIPshot Green Women's Dress. Winter Fashion 2018 (1)

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. Those are also great on a cooler winter day when a bit more coverage goes a long way!VIPshop MISS LI BY NAWAIN Green Women's Dress, Winter 2018 Trends (6)
  7. This dress is easily combines with your long winter coat. I chose to pair this dress with a caramel Lapel Open Front Wool Blend Coat by ZAFUL and they turned out to be the perfect duet. This coat is under $35 and a wonderful blend of cotton, wool and polyester that would surely keep you warm and in style!

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.

Three Must-Have Dresses for Fall/Winter

Hi guys,

Hope you are ready to have a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with delicious food, sweet family time, warmth in your hearts and happy memories to smile about! As usual, my mom and dad would be preparing turkey dinner and boy am I looking forward to it!?! Good thing we have three more days off to keep active and away from the desk chair–this food would need to burn, hehe!

Since Black Friday is upon us, and I have partnered with METISU once more, I thought I’d share with you three of the absolute must-have dresses for Fall 2017/Winter2018. They are all elegant and warm and will surely brings compliments your way.

Blue Printed Midi Dress With Corset Waist – this dress is so unique–it immediately grabbed my attention! The paisley print, the suede corset waist, the flared sleeves, the tee length, the fun slid in the back–all bring this swing style silhouette to life. The dress is a pleasure to wear as it is comprised of 65% cotton and 35% polyester. For this look, I paired the midi with a floppy hat, round glasses, pumps and a vintage inspired purse to bring some old-fashioned vibes to light!

Green Wrap V-neck Knitted Rib Pleated Midi Dress – where do I begin with this knitted number?! It is so flattering to the figure. The dainty lace detail around the neckline and the pleated skirt add so much femininity and this jeweled tone makes me feel like a gem. Initially, I thought I would like this dress the least as I felt it is not my usual sheath dress silhouette, but I have to admit it quickly became my favorite as soon as I put it on! It is also very warm and super soft… Ahhh, I can go on and on!

How to Wear Your Summer Dress into Fall

Hello lovelies!

How was your weekend? We had a busy one and I always feel like weekends should be at least three days… Wouldn’t that be a lot more on the fair side?

IMG_20171020_172641_810IMG_20171020_172200_015

On a different note, we cannot seem to be able to break up with summer here in LA-LA land. The temperatures today are hitting 101F!! So… I am not putting my sundresses away, just keeping a leather jacket close by in order to be armed with the right attire for hot mid-days, as well as cool mornings and evenings.

IMG_20171020_174128_053IMG_20171020_172316_169IMG_20171020_173417_837

This week’s look is exactly as described above–my favorite new red & white floral dress from VIP.com, two-toned pumps, an all black purse, and a leather jacket. Combining the edginess of leather with the femininity of a floral print, bell sleeves and an A-line, makes for a balanced and chic outfit. I decided to stick to three primary colors – red, white and black. I believe each element of  each piece speaks to the next–the white flowers of the dress cross over to the white body of the shoes. The black tips of the pumps loop back to the black bag and leather jacket adding to the cohesiveness of this outfit!

IMG_20171020_173630_668IMG_20171020_174850_873IMG_20171020_173801_958

 

Unfortunately, this floral beauty is currently sold out, but I have linked a stand collar A-line floral dress, a red and black tie-neck A-line one and a blush lace V-neck A-line dress that would all look fab with a motto leather jacket and a pair of pumps on a sunny fall day.

Porcelain Print Pencil Dress

Hi Lovelies,

You know the traditional English dishware Chinoiserie print combining white and vintage blue? I own at least three different sets of porcelain dishes with it… Being such a fan, I could not help but falling in love with this porcelain print pencil dress by ROMWE.

Of course, it first caught my eye with it’s beautiful print and color combination. I then took a closer look and noted two other attributes of the dress that speak my language: 1) the midi length and 2) the bodycon shape. It is elegant and sexy while still being very classy. The 1/2 sleeves make it a perfect fall contender. I was hoping to be able to wear it with a denim or a white blazer to show you how beautifully the two combine, but it was 100F the day we were shooting… CRAZY LA weather! 😉 I chose to style this dress with red pumps and a blue Chanel bag, but could see how you can flip that and wear blue or white shoes and a red or white bag. I love the combo of white, blue and red, and not just for the fourth of July, hehe!

A couple of details on this beautiful dress:

  1. It is under $15!!!
  2. I am wearing a size Small (my usual) and it fits me quite well.
  3. I recommend wearing it with beige or light grey undies, because somehow if you wear white (my first inclination), it will show.
  4. Have you checked it out yet?! 😉

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&amp;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?

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.

  • 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.

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.

  • 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…
