I love to push the envelope when it comes to approaching everyday style. I get bored very easily so wearing things that are tricky to pull of are intriguing. If you have ever seen Beetle Juice or a vintage prison uniform you would probably never ever want to attempt this look. Fashion should be fun so I did just that.
Stripes are very tricky in general. Vertical stripes can be very slimming while horizontal stripes tend to make things look wider than they are. The key is knowing your body type. I am a true believer that there are no rules when it comes to fashion. There are however, some helpful guidelines that can help you look more visually appealing.
If you’re smaller on top then you want to wear your horizontal stripes on the top portion of your body and vice versa. If you have wide hips and you want to wear horizontal stripes then go for a thinner line pattern or one with alternating pinstripes. At the end of the day you look the best when you’re confident. If you love the way you look nothing else really matters.
If you think your outfit may or may not look like a prison uniform then give them a good pose and own it! Always put your best foot forward in fashion. Life is to short to wear boring clothes.
You guys know I love a good detail. I like to consider details to be things that you can add to ANY outfit to bring it to the next level. This can be a hat, a necklace or a killer pair of heels. This post is going to be all about accessories. On Sunday I went to my favorite cultural venue… the mall!
My first stop was -you guessed it- H&M. I spotted a gorgeous winter white two-piece set that I just had to have. It was only 49.95 total! I couldn’t find a link to the website but check your local H&M for availability. I also spotted a cool grey hat to add to my collection. The hat was also $24.95. I’m not sure if the items haven’t made it to the site yet or if they are already sold out but if you find a link let me know. It should not be hard to find in store because they had a bunch yesterday.
My last stop was ALDO shoe store. Anyone that follows me on social media knows I love a statement item! Before all the insta-boutiques came to be I would always get my pieces from ALDO or ALDO Accessories. This particular silver piece called the Cotham Necklace is available for $40. The necklace is made very well and will be a part of my collection for a long time. I am definitely a happy shopper.
I could not wait to wear the necklace to work today so I created a look inspired but the hat and necklace.
Grey Top Hat- H&M
Blush Blazer- ZARA (Spring 2014)
White Top- H&M basic tank dress tucked in to pants.
Grey Pants- Oldnavy (about 10 years old)
Leopard Kitten Heel Shoes- Topshop (2-3 years old)
I would love to know where you guys shop for your “details!”I could not find any of the direct links to what I specifically purchased but I did link some comparable items from the same retailers for those interested. Hopefully this gave you guys some inspiration. Talk to you again soon!
So I was going through some of my old photos on Instagram as I was trying to evaluate my wardrobe and find an outfit for BeautyCon this weekend and I decided to share what I found with you guys! I really enjoy putting new looks together. It’s no secret that I love to shop! If you are subscribed to my blog you already know some of my favorite places to shop:
Is my favorite places to find clothes for work, outfits for a night out and pieces to complete and outfit. The price point is almost always super affordable and great for any budget.
Is my favorite online haven. They have a range of styles and prices to satisfy any stylists wish list. Anything from an extravagant sequin mini dress to a denim pleated midi skirt is available and can be to your door in as little as 2 days.
Is my favorite place on earth to find quality pieces. I like to pic up handbags, shoes and dresses here. If you are looking for outerwear pop on to ZARA and take a look! Trench coats blazers and winter coats are timeless and great pieces to invest in.
If you are in a time crunch and don’t have to much time to shop check out forever 21. Their pieces are not going to last you forever all the time but they are always on trend for any night club event or night out with the girls.
Most of my latest exciting shoe purchases have come from ShopRoxx and the coral jumpsuit above has also come from this little gem. There are only 3 locations here in New York City so if you live in the area be sure to check them out.
