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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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:

  • 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.ย 
  • 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!

Red or Green – What to Wear to Your Company’s Holiday Party

Hello lovelies,

Happy Monday! Were you able to decorate your tree this weekend? We went hunting for some toddler-appropriate ornaments as you know little hands like to explore EVERYTHING, so the tree would be as child-proof as possible!

As the holidays are fast approaching and we are all getting ready, I decided to show you my three outfit options for a company’s holiday party. I’ve always liked metallic dresses for the holidays, but this year the choice is between red and green.

Green V Neck 3/4 Sleeve Basic Knee Length Women’s A Line Dress by VIPSHOP (the SWEET look) You know lace has a special place in my heart, so naturally this dress caught my eye! Doesn’t the fabric texture look beautiful in the green color? I find the dainty scallop detailing around the neckline very intricate and appealing. The bell sleeves and A-line silhouette both add so much femininity to the look. The dress is a midi which is one more reason it would be the perfect partner in crime for your company’s celebration. Add some red nail polish and either metallic or black accessories and you are all ready for the coming festivities!

One Side Tiered Ruffle Trim Dress by ROMWE (look “En FUEGO!”) – this year RED is BIG! You know most designers sent all red looks down the runway for fall and winter. This dress hits the trend as well as a holiday note just right. It is plain yet bold, simple yet makes a statement with its silhouette and pretty ruffle shoulder detail! It is a midi, however still appropriately sexy as the bodycon hugs your curves. One more benefit–it is only $19.99! This dress would look beautiful with a pair of golden heels and clutch, or red pumps and a black bag for an added punch. I kept my accessories the same for the three looks, so that I can let the dresses shine. This dress is also great for a NYE celebration and I cannot wait to wear it to either.

Frill Neck High Waist Midi Dress by Shein (the VINTAGE charmer) – OK, if you are a girl who digs vintage charm, this is the dress for you! It comes with a frill Victorian collar, high waist, an asymmetrical tea length hemline, a loose silhouette, and the most intricate button detail on the sleeves. The deep green color of the satin shimmers beautifully in the sun and would shine in style under some holiday lighting as well. This dress is also available in black. I am showing you two possible ways to wear this dress:

1) As is – letting the hem of the dress fly free. I like the line this way as it it very true to its vintage character.

2) Tied bottom – if you want a way to add more definition you can go for an intricate belt or tie the bottom. There is enough fabric to do so and the tie looks like a flower, which is still in tune with the vintage character of the dress.

What to Wear to a Baby Shower

Hello lovelies,

I am hoping that your week is going fab! On Monday I promised to show you what I wore to my friend’s baby shower and I am very excited to bring you this look as it could work for both welcoming a baby boy or a baby girl–if you desire to be in sync with the gender for the celebration that is, hehe!

You know I am a huge lace fan, right?! It is such a classy and feminine fabric, so naturally I went for this Round Neck Flare Sleeve Lace Dress by ZAFUL. And guess what? It comes in both blush and light blue–see I told you it would work for either celebrating a boy or a girl’s arrival into this world! This dress is very sweet–the color, the fabric, the bell sleeves, they all come together and leave a butch of visual cuteness in one’s mind. I decided to infuse just a tad bit of edge by adding a wide belt, these two-tones pumps and a white blazer.

I bet you guessed it right, my friend is having a girl and I could not be more excited to have one more little princess join our group–GIRL POWER! It got me to thinking how precious the months of pregnancy are, how exciting and how emotional, how rewarding it is to finally meet your little baby, and how sweet it is to cuddle them all day long, even when you had no sleep the night before–you know what I am talking about mamas! Hehe! What has been your sweet moment this week?

P.S. The ZAFUL double 11 sale is going on right now. Check it out as you are sure to find some cool presents for the upcoming holidays!

New Girl

Hi lovelies,

Are you fans of the show “New Girl?” I love the light and easy humor and tend to watch an episode or two after viewing something a bit heavier like “House of Cards” or “Breaking Bag!”

Well, for those of you who do love “New Girl” the photos from this week are taken in front of Nick’s Bar–the Griffin!

The other new girl reference is to thisย good-looking olive green dress, from PinkBlush, as she is the “new girl” in my wardrobe. As I have said before, I ADORE summer, but this classy beauty is making me look forward to Fall days a cooler temps. It is perfect for the office or a dinner date night. The under-the-knee length is excellent for any occasion, the olive green lace material is textured for added visual appeal and the fitted silhouette hugs your curves to perfection.ย PinkBlush Olive Midi, Lucky brand Bag, Lucky Brand Hat, Ray-Ban Clubrounds, Banana Reppublic Heels (10)PinkBlush Olive Midi, Lucky brand Bag, Lucky Brand Hat, Ray-Ban Clubrounds, Banana Reppublic Heels (14)PinkBlush Olive Midi, Lucky brand Bag, Lucky Brand Hat, Ray-Ban Clubrounds, Banana Reppublic Heels (5)PinkBlush Olive Midi, Lucky brand Bag, Lucky Brand Hat, Ray-Ban Clubrounds, Banana Reppublic Heels (17)

The dress is double-lined to prevent sheerness and pairs up perfectly with other earthy tones, such as beige, different shades of browns, burgundy, cream. Metallics would also partner up well with the dress as it has a tad bit of a shine in some areas on the lace. This outfit makes me feel elegant and sophisticated in a way any woman in her 30s and 40s could appreciate.

Psssstttt, can I tell you a secret?! This dress is actually from the maternity section, but I just loved it so much, I decided to order it in hopes it would fit my body well enough, given that my belly has no reason to grow right now, hehe! I believe this olive beauty would be the perfect piece of clothing to make a mama-to-be glow and feel confidently radiant!! As humans who can grow other humans we need to remember that we are special and beautiful, so I salute you mamas, mamas-to-be, and ladies who will be mamas when the time comes! ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  PinkBlush Olive Midi, Lucky brand Bag, Lucky Brand Hat, Ray-Ban Clubrounds, Banana Reppublic Heels (13)PinkBlush Olive Midi, Lucky brand Bag, Lucky Brand Hat, Ray-Ban Clubrounds, Banana Reppublic Heels (3)PinkBlush Olive Midi, Lucky brand Bag, Lucky Brand Hat, Ray-Ban Clubrounds, Banana Reppublic Heels (16)PinkBlush Olive Midi, Lucky brand Bag, Lucky Brand Hat, Ray-Ban Clubrounds, Banana Reppublic Heels (18)

Evening Wedding

Hello lovelies,

How was your 4th of July weekend? Tons of fun I hope! We did a couple of trips and I have to admit–it was fantastic having four days to spend with my favorite people! ๐Ÿ™‚

Now, let’s get back to business–that of baking rules of wedding etiquette (hehe!) as I sure am introducing you to some unconventionally beautiful guest attire AND this time it is one for an evening celebration. Irrespective of when or where a wedding was to be held white or black used to be on the “NO! NO!” list when it came to female guest attire. White was strictly for the bride and black–well, black was to be left for the not-so-joyous occasions… However, nowadays black is completely acceptable–it is such a versatile color as it pairs up perfectly with any accessories and tends to be flattering on almost everyone.

I find this fit and flare METISU dress (as well as this one – available in all sizes! Mine is only available in XL at the moment.) to be the perfect piece for an evening wedding – it is very glamorous, yet proper, with a hint of fun and a pop of color. It comes with this pretty red and gold belt, which ties in perfectly with the gold front buttons of the dress and inspired my accessory selection–a pair of red suede BCBG peep toes (currently not available, but the linked pair is a perfect match for the dress), a red Michael Kors round-top wallet, and dainty gold jewelry.

A few of the dress details I love:

  • The length of this dress – the lace hits me right below the knee, but if you are a bit shorter it would be tea-length, mid-calf, which is very classy as well.
  • The swing silhouette – makes me want to twirl and dance the night away.
  • The hollow out lace design – it is so strategically placed to show off the beauty of the lace fabric, while keeping the dress tasteful!
  • The half sleeves – perfect for the evening and the lace detail on those show gorgeously and tie in with the bottom of the dress.
  • The button down front – you can button up the dress and display its beautiful top pearl button and stand collar, or you can button it down and pair it up with some pretty gold jewelry!

The LWD – Spring Perfection!

Hello lovelies,

Happy May! I am so excited to share this post with you!! This week I am introducing you to Hanna and Simone–both extremely pretty and a perfect “partner in crime” for this season as well as summer!

Cuddy Studios White Lace Hannah Dress, banana Republic Skinny Belt, Lucky Brand Emmy Flats, Aviators, Lucky Brand Saddle Bag (16)Bell Sleeved White Lace Dress, Aldo Heels, Banana Republic Skinny Belt, Botkier Handbag (1)

Those of you who have followed me for a while know that I am a total fan of lace. I also adore white, so a pretty white lace dress makes this woman very happy! Cuddy Studios made two such dresses that caught my eye, namely Hannah and Simone (I even love the names and had considered one of them when it was time to name my little princess)!

Hannah is a tankย dress made out of a white floral lace fabric. It’s wideย neckline and scooped back make it perfect for hot spring and even hotter summer days! The back has the cutest adjustable, delicate tie detail, which adds more visual interest and a fun twist. I also like the cut of this dress – you can add a belt to it for waist definition or just let it flow for a 60’s free spirit feel. I wore this dress with both heels and flats and enjoyed the more casual or a bit dressier option those added to the outfit.

Simone attracted me with its white holographic-feel, laser-cut diamond fabric and flattering A-line silhouette. It’s bell sleeves add a boho chic flavor to this classy dress! Just like the Hannah, Simone can be worn to a casual weekend brunch or paired with heels for a date night or a night out with the girls. I wore it with a skinny watermelon belt, watermelon heel and bag which complemented the dress and added a pop to the outfit.
