Red, White and Blue is For Fall Too!

Hello lovelies,

Hope your week has been good! Did you purchase anything on Cyber Monday? I was very good during Black Friday, but did treat myself to a new camera lens and a few airline tickets on Monday!

Somehow the holidays got me thinking about wearing red, white, and blue and I decided to try to incorporate these color in fall outfit perfect for the office. This look is brought to you via my collaboration with VIPSHOP (clothing) and DealOKart(watch).

It actually all started with the top. The bib detail is so intricate and reminded me of a very delicate cami I had once purchased while on a trip to Australia. I also liked the blue embroidery as it added a fun touch to a classy, work-appropriate shirt. Of course this beauty needed a partner, so I went hunting for a skirt. Being the lace fan that I am, I gravitated to this A-line navy midi skirt pretty much as soon as I saw it! The length, the zig-zag hem, and beautiful detailing of the fabric complement the elegant lines of the shirt to create a chic, sophisticated overall silhouette. Then came the accessories–I pondered upon white shoes and bag or their navy counterparts, but settled on burgundy to add yet another color to the outfit. BTW, you can receive $5 OFF your VIPSHOP orders over $50, with code “Marieta756” at https://us.vip.com/.

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I wear watches all the time–ever since I received one in first grade, hehe! I had seen this watch on a friend’s Instagram page and though it has tons of minimalist charm, so when DealOKart reached out to me I was happy to order the white on white version of this timepiece. Doesn’t it combine European simplicity and Asian Modern Art to create a cool design?! It also works in such a fun way–the dot depicts the hour hand and the line is the minute hand. Last, but not least, it would not break the bank–it is only $8.99 at the moment! To receive 15% discount to all your DealOKart purchase please use code “OOTD15“.

How to Wear Your Summer Dress into Fall

Hello lovelies!

How was your weekend? We had a busy one and I always feel like weekends should be at least three days… Wouldn’t that be a lot more on the fair side?

IMG_20171020_172641_810IMG_20171020_172200_015

On a different note, we cannot seem to be able to break up with summer here in LA-LA land. The temperatures today are hitting 101F!! So… I am not putting my sundresses away, just keeping a leather jacket close by in order to be armed with the right attire for hot mid-days, as well as cool mornings and evenings.

IMG_20171020_174128_053IMG_20171020_172316_169IMG_20171020_173417_837

This week’s look is exactly as described above–my favorite new red & white floral dress from VIP.com, two-toned pumps, an all black purse, and a leather jacket. Combining the edginess of leather with the femininity of a floral print, bell sleeves and an A-line, makes for a balanced and chic outfit. I decided to stick to three primary colors – red, white and black. I believe each element of  each piece speaks to the next–the white flowers of the dress cross over to the white body of the shoes. The black tips of the pumps loop back to the black bag and leather jacket adding to the cohesiveness of this outfit!

Unfortunately, this floral beauty is currently sold out, but I have linked a stand collar A-line floral dress, a red and black tie-neck A-line one and a blush lace V-neck A-line dress that would all look fab with a motto leather jacket and a pair of pumps on a sunny fall day.

Blush into Fall

Hello lovelies,

I have been thinking about Fall fashion and the fact that I do not want to give up pretty colors because summer is over. One of those colors dear to my heart it blush–it is so soft and feminine and could work perfectly with a light fall color palette of creams and beiges, as well as soft grays!

Today I am showing you a look that combined all blush with some cream and denim. This dress from VIP.com is the main act and outfit inspiration. I could not help, but fall in love with the soft lines it forms and that beautiful pear detail along the sleeves and on the belt. Don’t you think it is darling? Once I received the dress I could also appreciate how soft and comfy it is (I am not a huge fan of pretty clothing that is torturous to wear!).

I also loved how the elegance of the point toe added to the sophistication of the dress. Since I want to wear this dress now and for the next few months, and believe it or not, it gets cold in the morning and evening even in LA, I added a denim blazer. I chose a blazer vs a regular jean jacket as I wanted to stay in the slightly more elegant realm. To finish the outfit off I added some pretty jewels, a cream bag and some sunnies.

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! 🙂

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.

  • 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. 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…

State Your Case in Ruffles, Tulle and Lace

Hello lovelies!

Have you tried something that is totally out of your comfort zone, but you find so pretty that you decide to take a leap of faith and place that order? I love form-fitting dresses and skirts–my go to dresses are sheath and skirt, yes, you guessed it–pencil! However, I recently partnered with VIP.com and discovered the most beautiful, A-line, black paneled sweet skirt. This skirt captured my attention with its enchanting details.

The three panels design is genius and give this piece so much visual interest! Let’s deconstruct each one and see what it adds to the charm of such a lovely skirt:

  • The top-most layer is pleated, and we all know pleated skirts have been right on trend since spring and going strong onto fall! Not only that, but it it pleated tulle, which allows the next texture to shine trough.
  • The middle layer is of gorgeous lace which is just about as long as the pleated tulle and shows off beautifully as you move.
  • The third and solid layer is a bit shorter to allow the light to go trough the tulle and hit the lace layer, while giving you enough length to make this skirt an elegant and classy piece fit for a night at the theater or a day in the office!

I partnered this skirt with a feminine yellow ruffle blouse. It caught my eye with a tough of Victorian charm, ruffled front detail, beautiful pearl-like buttons, and it’s gentle floral pattern combining greens, whites, blues, and burgundies on a lovely mustard-hued background, which allows the pattern to speak in their fall tones. The blouse also screamed to me: “I will be the perfect partner to your new pleated skirt!” I could not agree more and ordered both with a vision of an outfit coming together as one classy and feminine look that carries so many of my favorite details, subtle enough not to overpower one another!

To complete the look, I paired my new VIP.com finds with mustard yellow pumps, round glasses, and a cream leather satchel. I also noticed that I was not the only one who loved these items as they are both sold out at the moment. I have linked a couple of similar skirts and blouses below.

Floral Fall

Hello lovelies!

Can you believe it is already September? This year is flying by so fast and before we know it Fall will be here! Despite the recent California heat wave, I have started prepping my wardrobe for the change of seasons and have lined up items to introduce you to.

For this week’s transitional look, I have partnered with VIP.com to present to you this sweet, A-line, yellow floral dress. Doesn’t it ooze feminine charm?! It captured my attention with it’s gentle floral pattern combining pinks, whites and greens on a lovely mustard-hued background, which allows the pattern to speak in their soft tones. The cut of the dress along with the ruffled, bow-tie sleeves only add to the ladylike character of this dress.

So what is it that makes this dress so suitable for the next few month:

  • The mustard yellow color reminds me of the leaves changing color;
  • The dress is lined and perfect for cooler days;
  • It hits below the knee, which would make it suitable for early Fall days;
  • This floral beauty would partner well with a denim or leather jacket.

I decided to pair my new VIP.com find with lace up sandals, round glasses, black panama hat and black leather bag to give it some boho flavor as I was going to brunch in an edgy neighborhood where most people wear interesting statement pieces! I see this dress as a versatile piece as I would switch out the lace-up sandals with black kitten heels and wear it to the office.
