Velvet with a Sprinkle of Sparkles

Hello lovelies,

Between work being extremely busy and taking a vacation after our project was due, I have been a bit MIA from both blogging and being active on Instagram, so without further ado here is my new favorite fashion obsession: the perfect velvet bodysuit!

This piece is so sophisticated, yet fun, has tons of details, yet looks clean-lined and classy! So, what are some of the features of the Beaded Shoulder Surplice Velvet Bodysuit that I adore?

  1. The shoulder details – the beaded necklaces-like detail adds so much visual interest to the upper half of the suit. It is set on a black tulle patch which to me screamed inspiration for pairing the suit with a black pencil skirt, a tulle a line one or a pair of simple black cigarette pants. The metallic color of the beads is not an exact silver or bronze, which allows for the selection of any jewel without clash with the shoulder detail.ย  ย SHEIN Beaded Shoulder Surplice Velvet Bodysuit, Banana Republic Pencil Skirt, YSL Clutch (1)SHEIN Beaded Shoulder Surplice Velvet Bodysuit, Banana Republic Pencil Skirt, YSL Clutch (5)
  2. The deep V – this neckline brings the eye down to balance out the shoulder detail and draw attention to the rest of your outfit. ย  SHEIN Beaded Shoulder Surplice Velvet Bodysuit, Banana Republic Pencil Skirt, YSL Clutch (9)
  3. The color – the deep burgundy color is so rich and adds to the refined character of the bodysuit. This piece is also available in black and goldish khaki (which is absolutely gorgeous and on my wish-list)!
  4. The soft material – this velvet piece is so soft and cozy against the skin, I can sleep in it!SHEIN Beaded Shoulder Surplice Velvet Bodysuit, Banana Republic Pencil Skirt, YSL Clutch (3)SHEIN Beaded Shoulder Surplice Velvet Bodysuit, Banana Republic Pencil Skirt, YSL Clutch (10)
  5. The comfy fit (SIZE UP!) – OK, so I initially ordered a size Small, since it is my typical in tops, but could barely put my arms trough the sleeves and could not button the suit for the life of me…. Soooo, the next time I ordered I went with LARGE and I love how it fits–it is no pulling anywhere and it is not wide either–just the perfect size for me! I would highly recommend jumping up at least one size, especially if your torso is on the longer side.

Long Enough?!

Hello lovelies,

Hope your week has been going well. And “YES” I am posting for the second time this week! The solar eclipse must have gotten me, hehe!

Not sure if you can tell by the photos, but this girl is pretty tall–5.9′, some days 5.10′ (no heel height added), so when it comes to finding a maxi I never know if it would be long enough or sort of that awkward, show-your-ankle length that drives me insane… Well, tall girls, I have found the answer: the Burgundy Print Draped Maxi Dress by the trendy online boutique, PinkBlush!

Main reasons for loving this dress:

  1. It is long enough for tall girls – size Small, which is what I am wearing, measures 58 inches from high point of shoulder to hem–wahoooo!
  2. It is very flattering on your figure as the dress is draped, so it is perfect for brunch when you want all that yummy food. ๐Ÿ™‚ The sash can be ties tight for waist definition or kept looser for a more comfortable feel.
  3. The material feels very gentle against your skin.
  4. The colors and pattern – both are perfect for Fall, so this dress would be making it to the office with me this coming season!
  5. Bonus for NEW MAMAS: The V-neckline and crossover design makes this dress perfect for nursing.
