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! πŸ˜‰ 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?! πŸ˜‰

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! πŸ™‚

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. VIP.com A-line Gingham Paneled Dress, Lucky Brand Kabott Heel Booties, Raymond Weil Watch and Calvin Klein Red Sunglasses, Vintage, Trendy, Fall, Outfit of the Day
  • 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.Β 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…

That’s a Wrap!

Hello lovelies,

This week, I have partnered with ZAFUL to bring you two perfect looks involving none other than the printed wrap dress itself! Wrap dresses peaked in popularity in the mid to late 70’s, and then in the late 90’s.. but have remained a strong female closet staple into the 2010’s.

Zaful Printer Green Wrap Dress, Vince Camuto Pumps, Dolche Vita Suede Handbag (1)ZAFUL Gingham Wrap Dress, LuckyBrand Panama Hat, Botkier Bag, Vince Camuto Pumps, Boho Chic, Boho Style, Fall 2017

Look 1: Have to wear a wrap dress to work

ZAFUL has such a cute arsenal of dresses, but for this look I pickled a beautiful Green Slit Beach Printed Wrap Dress. It hits right at the knee, has a sleeve and an asymmetrical front to back line giving it an extra oomph and making it very work-appropriate. Although it is very subtle, the black trim detail on the sleeve gave me the inspiration for accessorizing this look–black pumps, black suede cross-body bag, and black frame, oversized sunglasses. The little cream leaf print could also serve as an accessory color, giving you more options to play with.

The dress is very comfy as it is made from a cotton-polyester blend that would keep you comfy all day long. I am wearing a size Small and it is true to size. To transition this dress into fall and keep it office smart, add a structured blazer and voila!

Look 2: How to turn your wrap dress into a boho piece

For my boho inspired look I selected the Checked Ruffles Wrap Casual Dress. The cut of this piece appealed to me right away–these is something about a dress that is longer andΒ  well-fitted enough to make you feel sexy while not being over-exposed… And this dress does exactly that!

The gingham pattern gives it an every-day vibe and the sleeve trim detailing adds extra flavor. To achieve a boho feel I added a panama hat, a pair of black pumps, and a coral handbag for a bit of color. This dress is also made from a poly-cotton blend making it soft and gentle to your skin. On cooler days, I can see myself wearing this dress with a black leather moto jacket and a pair of booties. Side note: I generally wear a size Small, but ordered a Medium after reading the reviews, and I too would suggest going up a size for your order.

Falling for Fall

Hello lovelies,

How has your week been? Temperatures here have hit 100F the past few days, and although Fall is around the corner it sure does not feel that way.

As much as I want to hold onto summer, seasons change… Embracing Fall has to happen and what better way that IN STYLE! πŸ™‚ Isn’t it funny how one wardrobe find can get you excited for what it ahead?! This teal green midi dress by METISU did it for me–it has made me “fall for Fall!!”

This dress immediately grabbed my eye with it’s classy silhouette–simple yet feminine, not lacking details, yet keeping those from stealing all of the attention and rather speaking to the appeal of the dress as a whole. The puff sleeves, bow belt decoration, and front stitching add definition to the waist and bring in a feeling of vintage charm. Here, I have styled this dress for a day at the office, but could see myself adding a boater hat and turning it into my main act for a boho Sunday look!

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!

PinkBlush Olive Midi, Lucky brand Bag, Lucky Brand Hat, Ray-Ban Clubrounds, Banana Reppublic Heels (19)PinkBlush Olive Midi, Lucky brand Bag, Lucky Brand Hat, Ray-Ban Clubrounds, Banana Reppublic Heels (6)

The other new girl reference is to thisΒ 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.Β 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! πŸ˜‰Β  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)

From Cocoon to a Beautiful Midi

Hello, beauties!

Happy mid-week! Doesn’t is feel joyous to know you are getting over the hump and half-way trough to the weekend?! On that note let me share a few fun facts about a fabric I love–SILK!

MERISU Silk Green Midi Dress, Nude Clutch, Banana Republic Gold Heels, Polaroid Round Glasses, Summer 2017oord_in_style_MERISU Silk Green Midi Dress, Nude Clutch, Banana Republic Gold Heels, Polaroid Round Glasses, Lucky brand Jewelryoord_in_style_MERISU Midi Dress, Nude Clutch, Banana Republic Gold Heels, Polaroid Round Glasses, Nordstrom Sale

Did you know thatΒ silk is obtained from the cocoons of the larvae of the mulberry silkworm? It is a natural protein fiber that can be woven into fabric. Silk textile was first developed in ancient China and has been considered a luxurious material since 3630 BC, but is currently widely used in the medical field as well (magical properties, I tell ya!). It is very comfortable to wear in warm weather and while active, because it is very absorbent. It is also great for cold weather, as its low conductivity keeps warm air close to the skin. OK, so why am I going on and on about silk?!? Well, because I am in love with my new silk midi dress from METISU.

Why is this dress my new favorite?

  • Silk is perfect for the summer heat and it does indeed give the dress a luxurious look, while my skin enjoys its softness;
  • If you have read my prior article you know I love dresses that can go from a day in the office to a night out and this one fits the bill as it has midi length, half-sleeve, scoop neckline that all feels conservatively-elegant;
  • The dress may look simple, but has so many details to enjoy: paneled design, tied waist, a split front and pockets! Yes, pockets – and I so LOVE having those!! Let’s be honest – I never use them as such, but just knowing they are there makes me feel cool!
  • The color is not something you see every day and I know I will be wearing this dress well into Fall (when the weather permits that is) as it combined perfectly with earthy neutrals.

Abstract Floral Story

Hello lovelies!

Hope your week has been going great and that you have some exciting plans for the upcoming weekend.

Since we are in the heat of summer and florals are huge during this season I wanted to introduce you to a floral midi dress with a twist, by METISU. I find this abstract pattern to be very artistic and inspiring. The flowers have a beautifully undefined shape and colors that flow from one flower to the other. The pops of brighter red and green stand out from the more muted earthy, tobacco tones and black background. This unusual color story gives you countless possibilities when it comes to accessories. I chose a blue Chanel bag and gold heels, but black, green, red or any neutral toned bag and shoes would also compliment this pretty dress very well.

The crew neck, midi length, and half-sleeve make this dress perfect for work, whereas the slim-fitting, elegant silhouette and side slid perfect it for “play”! I wore it in the office, followed by a performance at the Disney Concert Hall–it suited both occasions to the t!

Daytime Wedding

Hello lovelies,

Do I hear wedding bells? Yes, with summer comes wedding season and beautiful white dresses that we all want to wear all day, every day… But is it against the rules to be a wedding guest and wear a white dress? After all white and ivory are reserved for the bride and it is her day to shine. If you know the bride is more traditional I would recommend that you opt out of white and choose a pretty dress in a different color – blush is beautiful and still going strong this season, yellow is always cheerful and another great color for a summer day wedding, and mint green is soft and sophisticated – just to list a few.

However, if you know your bride is not one to care for the rules and has chosen a more contemporary approach to her wedding, then perhaps you can step into your white dress and enjoy her special day! Here are a few rules to help you make the right choice:

  1. Would the bride be in white or ivory?
  2. Do you know the bride well enough to ask her what she thinks of you white dress?
  3. Does your white dress look like something you would wear to your wedding shower?
  4. Is your dress made from lace, tulle, or any other fabric that resembles a wedding gown?
  5. Is your dress floor-length?

If you answer to questions 1, 3, 4, and 5 was “YES”, then think twice. If your answer to 2 was “YES”, then take a photo of your dress and share it with the bride.

Should you have decided to be wear white, theΒ White Hollow Out Flounce Hem Midi Dress by Metisu is pure PERFECTION!! Why do I think so:

  2. The see-trough elements add just enough visual interest without being inappropriate at all. ootd_in_style METISU White Hollow Out Flounce Hem Midi Dress Polaroid, BCBG Shoes, Polaroid Glasses, Sam Edelman Bag
  3. The midi length is stylish yet classy.
  4. The flounce hem is very feminine and romantic. ootd_in_style METISU White Hollow Out Flounce Hem Detail, Midi Dress, BCBG Peep Toesootd_in_style METISU White Hollow Out Flounce Hem Midi Dress, Wedding, Raymond Weil, Sam Edelman, Nordstrom Sale
  5. The line of the dress is so elegant and sophisticated.ootd_in_style METISU White Midi Dress, Sam Edelman, BCBG, Raymond Weil, Polaroid, Wedding
  6. This dress does not need jewelry – it speaks for itself. All you can add are some pearl earrings and a ring.
  7.

  9. It is easy to put together with any heels! I chose a pair of BCBG peep toes in a navy, green, grey and white print, one I believe a bride would not wear with her wedding dress (in an effort not to look bridal.) This pair also matched up the clutch rounding off my accessories nicely.Β  ootd_in_style METISU White Hollow Out Flounce Hem Midi Dress BCBG Peet Toes, Weddingootd_in_style METISU White Hollow Out Flounce Hem Midi Dress, Nordstrom Sale, Polaroid Round Sunglassesootd_in_style METISU White Hollow Out Flounce Hem Midi Dress (11)
