Burgundy and Cordouroy

Happy New Year, lovelies! โค

I hope Santa brought you the “magical pony” you desired and that 2019 would be filled with health, happiness, smiles, love, success, adventures, and contentment.

Aside from my magical pony Santa dropped off this awesome SHEIN Double Breasted Overlap Corduroy Dress for me! It is burgundy and pairs off perfectly with a white undershirt–think Santa was trying to drop me a hint to become one of his helpers? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Just so it does not seem like I am late to the party, I decided to pair this chic corduroy dress with a black undershirt, black leggings, favorite booties and a black newspaper-boy hat. Doesn’t this ensemble spell simple, playful, stylish with a bit of French?!

The dress’ double breasted design, burgundy color and golden buttons give it a semi-formal flavor, while the corduroy fabric and front pockets bring out the casual, playful character of this piece. I find the dress “easy going”, yet with enough flavor to spice up an otherwise very basic black look.

Salsa Queen

Hello lovelies,

Do you like Salsa dancing? I am a huge FAN and cannot wait to learn more steps and perhaps one day spin on the dance floor like those beautiful professionals can (yeah, a girl can dream, right?!?)

Well, when I saw the SHEIN Ruffle Cold Shoulder Layered Hem Dress, SALSA emerged in my head right away… It is sexy, yet not over-the-top, lets me feel like I am on fire in the coolest way possible, and makes me want to dance!! So let’s break this down:

“Sexy, yet not over-the-top”: The dress hugs your curves and has a cold-shoulder element, but is knee length allowing you to feel sexy without exposing too much leg or cleavage.

“On fire in the coolest way possible”: The burgundy red color and the sheath nature of the dress make you feel like an explosive powerhouse, yet one composed, beautiful and in control. ๐Ÿ™‚

“Makes me want to dance”: The ruffles around the hem and the shoulder detail add so much movement to the dress–it is like it was created to lead you to the dance floor!

Lady in Red

Hello lovelies,
How has your summer been? Enjoying the sun, warm temperatures, vacation time and travel? I certainly hope so!

I don’t always wear red during summer, however I fell in love with the romantic nature of this Ruffle Strap & Hem Button Up Dress and decided to give red a chance this season. Doesn’t it combine beautifully with my straw bag and hat to create a fun, beach- or farmer’s-market-inspired look? This dress is very detail-rich and yet feels simple and elegant. The ruffle straps and hem bring femininity and charm, the button front brings it right on trend, the delicate print allows for numerous combinations with white, black or red accessories, the draw string at the waist hugs your figure at the narrowest portion of your body, the midi-length gives it a sophisticated flair–all those come together to create a pretty and classy piece one can wear to brunch, the beach and even to work. I also like the overall vintage charm this dress posses–it makes me feel like a lady! ๐Ÿ™‚

Red or Black for Work

Hello lovelies,

Happy Easter! How was your celebratory weekend? We had a great time doing a couple of egg hunts and gathering with friends. I missed writing a post last Monday as I have been incredible busy at work–pulling 60 to 80-hour weeks at the office for the past month–crazy marathon to the finish line.

Since I have been in hard-core working mode, I thought I’d introduce you a couple of new dresses perfect to wear to the office!

ROMWE Black Ruffle Detail Sheath Dress, Nine West Red Heels (1)ROMWE Pearl Beading Sleeve Form Fitting Dress, Ralph Lauren Bag, White Pumps (6)

First up is this form fitting red beauty with pearl details on the sleeves from ROMWE. She has a simple silhouette letting the color of the dress speak for itself. The midi length is perfect for the office and so are the three-quarter sleeves – both of which tend to elongate the body and create an elegant and classy look. To add a spring feeling to this look, I added a pair of white pumps and a cream bag. This dress would of course carry black or beige accessories beautifully, so you have many options to entertain.

My second choice of Spring beauties for the office is this classy ruffle-trim sheath black dress. Just like the red dress, it has a simple shape which allows the details to shine–in this case the ruffles around the sleeve and neck area as well as the V-neckline. I decided to add a belt to accentuate the waist and bring the eye to the upper half of the dress. Red shoes and a beige clutch. Unfortunately, this dress is out of stock at the moment, but I have linked a few similar options here, here and here.

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.
