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!

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.

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.

A Lunch Date with Fashion

Hello lovelies,

Have you had workdays when instead of going out to lunch you clear your head with a shopping break? I don’t get do so too often as time does not usually permit (bummer, but my wallet thanks me! Hehe!), however once in a blue moon I hop down to the shops and enter the world of fashion. That is how I acquired today’s fun blog outfit – a bit out of my comfort zone when it comes to the skirt, however suitable for a night out with the girls or a date with your man.

Bodysuits have made a big comeback lately and I have to say I am digging this trend for two reasons: 1) a “tucked-in” look is easy to pull off as bodysuits keeps the fabric close to your body and well pulled to prevent bunching and extra fabric around the tummy area; 2) those have the power to make me feel feminine and chic–like a hidden dancer lives within me (hello “Dirty Dancing” days!). Today bodysuits come in variety of styles and fabrics, so if you are a fan you can indulge.

Leather and suede skirts are so edgy–one can completely elevate the hip level of an outfit. I am totally in love with this Lucky Brand leather skirt (which I will share with you on Instagram shortly), however if you do not want to invest in one, a faux leather option could be super cool and just as edgy. Love the ruffles on the skirt I am wearing and a faux leather material makes such cute details possible.
