How to Wear Your High-Waisted Pants

Hello Lovelies,

Fashion tends to repeat itself, doesn’t it?! 30-40 years pass and we see the same trends show up. My auntie used to tell me this and I could not fathom it possible, but now I have lived enough and see that she was right indeed!! This week’s look is inspired by the high-waisted pants and in particular a plaid tapered version that caught my eye. It is funny to look back in time and remember laughing at mom’s jeans, thinking I would never wear such pants… Lo and behold, I sure am into those now–looking at my first pair of ripped mom jeans now and showing you this look whose main act is a pair of pants that sit right at my belly button!!

I saw the Plaid Tapered Pants With Strap and immediately thought: red booties, red top and a baker boy hat–chic, edgy and current with a twist of vintage! But these pants are so versatile that I decided to try two different looks, which can be achieved with a slight modification of accessories and a top to drive the ship either into a sophisticated or hip direction.

The sophisticated – for this look, I chose to pair the pants with the Elastic Trumpet Cuff Bow Tied Blouse. The femininity and elegance of this top compliments the preppy feel of the pants to create an urbane outfit! The burgundy color of the top is very suitable and pops even against the strong multi-color plaid pattern–almost like PB and J–made for one another! Add some red booties, red-framed glasses, your favorite red lip color and this look can easily take you from a day to work to happy hour with your colleagues!

The hip – bring on the “old school cool!” This pairing is exactly what emerged in my head as soon as I say the pants. “I had a vision!” To bring it to life I kept the pants and added the Contrast Half Zip Bow Tied Bodysuit in Wine Red and my favorite baker boy hat. This bodysuit is among the most comfortable ones I own. The fabric is a cotton-poly blend–super soft against your skin–always a plus in my books! I also love the vintage feel the bow tied collar, the white contrasting trim and half-zipper front detail bring. Doesn’t is all come together to bring a modish look?!

Last Minute Valentine

Hi lovelies,

❤ Happy, happy Valentine’s day week! ❤ Whatever your relationship status may be, I hope cupid sits on your shoulder and you have a great time with the person/people you love! ❤

I decided to show you this look as it is not the traditional red dress, the lace beauty in pink or the sexy little black dress, but it spells elegant with an edge to me–perfect to make any girl feel confident or special for a Valentine’s or Galentine’s date. This outfit is very sentimental to me as it features a special item that has been in my family for three generations now. Can you guess which one it is?

The Half Buttoned Velvet Floral Bodysuit – where do I begin with this suit? The print is so unique and fresh. I love the flowers in dust pink and honey yellow with touches of Mediterranean blue and olive green. Those seem to pop, but in very gentle fashion, on the black velvet fabric. The wide sleeves with wide trim give this bodysuit a kimono feel and the v-neckline and small round-dome buttons on the front add to the dainty details that make this piece so charming and feminine.

The leather skirt – I have owned this skirt for at least a year now and absolutely adore styling it as it instantly adds edge an outfit. I love the zip detail on the pockets and the asymmetrical split at the front. The leather is soft and lined, making this skirt a pleasure to wear.

The booties – these have my name on it. I am a huge fan of pointy toes, kitten heels and soft colors–put these together and you have a winning bootie in my books. Those are super comfy which is a HUGE plus.

It’s the clutch – the sentimental piece, this clutch is very dear to my heart–it is the engagement present my grandpa made my grandma–how special is that. It is snakeskin and every detail is so eloquent and refined! “They don’t make them like this any more!” is a phrase fit for this situation! ❤

Spring Finds

Hello lovelies,

Hope this week has been treating you well! It seems like summer has arrived in LA and I could not be happier that we are getting 80 degree temperatures–I am such a sucker for the SUN!

Of course, this weather requites spring attire and for this week’s posts (Monday’s is here) I have partnered with a contemporary boutique for women’s clothing, headquartered right here in Los Angeles–Gozon.com!

First meet the Serenity Velvet Midi Dress… She is a show-stopper that drew me in with  that unique velvet texture in mauve color. Her silhouette is simple, yet commands attention every time you take a look! The ruffled sleeves add to the feminine charm of this piece without overpowering it. It has just the right dose of proper and sexy to make any woman feel beautiful! The Serenity Velvet Midi also comes in grey and looks just as gorgeous in it. I decided on the mauve as it caught my eye and sang a spring song in my ear! 🙂 If you are just as in love with this dress as I am you can use code “MARIETA15” to receive 15% off your purchase from Gozon boutique!

Second, for all of you boho souls out there, the Floral and Lace Bell Sleeve Top is pure spring perfection! There are so many details to entertain the eye here, the off -the-shoulder cut, the oversized bell sleeves, beautifully combining delicate crochet, lace and floral embroidery detailing. This top feels so breezy and will keep you cool on a warm day, but would also work with a cami underneath if you need an additional layer. To complete the free-spirit look of the boho top I combined it with wide legged jeans, but it also works perfectly with my skinny ones, and I can imagine it pairing up beautifully with a peasant skirt or ripped denim shorts. Check it out, it also comes in black.
