Spotted on a Friday night…a rosy midriff t-shirt (similar here), that I swooned over for a hot second, which was long enough to purchase. A perfect look in mind, with a rosy print that I imagined would transition well into spring, when paired with a leather skirt, velvet ankle boots and well,…the look flopped. It was all so perfect in my head, and then an epic fail.
That’s right! We’re talking about one of the season’s hottest trends. Strappy design details are everywhere you look from street style, to evening gowns, as well as lingerie pieces.
For years I feared “matchy matchy” outfits. In no way, shape, or form did I want to flash back to the 90’s remembering the purple, multicolored flannel shirt I wore to school when I was young. The outfit had perfectly matching purple jeans, an identical plaid mini backpack, matching accessories, purple socks, and even glasses to coordinate. At the time, I had braces, and I’m fairly sure I chose the rubber bands around my braces to color coordinate as well. Head to toe, I was a vision in purple plaid. It makes me cringe just thinking about it, and I’m positive that photo evidence exists somewhere. Don’t get me wrong, a few years later, I did have some winners once the movie, Clueless rolled around. Pleated plaid skirts, and knee highs for the win! I have much fonder memories of those outfits.
What’s better than a traditional little black dress? A little navy dress! While I’ve fallen in love with prints and bright colors this season, there’s something so simple, sleek, and sexy about a clean, form fitting silhouette. The lines are flattering, and it showcases the woman’s figure much more than the dress itself.
Hey Beauties! What’s hotter than a little red dress? Not much. I’ve had an infatuation with the color red all season, and I just can’t enough of the perfect, red cocktail dress. I am a girl in love with color. You’ll notice that people around you react differently to the colors you wear. The color red speaks louder than words. No descriptions necessary. The color conveys confidence, attention, and desire. It is a color to wear, when you want to be noticed. Think of the red dress, as the little black dress’s cooler, fancier sister.
It’s about time to ring in the New Year, Beauties! The biggest question on our minds? Where will we celebrate, and what on earth shall we wear? Decisions, decisions. I don’t know about you, but my New Year’s Eve plans are always spontaneous. Of course, I have been dreaming of the perfect dress. Inspired by a fabulous, crystallized, Rhinestone Mask that I found at Bebe, I created an entire look for a New Years Eve Masquerade Ball. The mask is absolutely perfect for the occasion. I love the dramatic look of it.
If you haven’t perused the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale yet, I’d highly suggest you check it out. They have incredible deals on gorgeous fall shoes. These boots are transitional and will take you into the fall season. The open toed booties are great, because they can be worn while it’s still warm, and you can style them with sleeveless dresses, using a fall color palette. I will be styling my own fall booties with several layered looks, to wear to New York’s upcoming fashion week. Here are my top ten favorite styles from the sale. I hope you love these styles as much as I do. The sale ends Sunday, August 3rd. Happy shopping!
I was so excited for our trip to Miami, I could hardly wait. We stayed at the gorgeous Fontainebleau resort in Miami Beach. A girls’ trip, in the sunshine was just what I needed.
