Festival Lookbook 1/3: Lace Dresses

Danielle Gold DavidTruuu 17 1 Festival Lookbook 1/3: Lace Dresses

At a festival you always want to look fashionable, but more importantly you want to be comfortable. There is a lot of walking/dancing so you’ll want to wear items that are made of a breathable fabric. This is why I love wearing lace dresses to these sort of events as they are the most breathable but always look chic. Lace dresses also never go out of stye so when you find a design you really love, they are usually timeless and can stay in your closet for many years. I went very matchy with this whole look though I should mention that the heel on these shoes are a bit taller than what I might choose to wear to a festival. The cowboy cut of these boots with the open sides paired perfectly with the dress; then I just threw on my black and white sunnies to match.

I also decided to elevate this look with a grey suede purse with this beautiful gold clasp closure detail from Hexa Bags. The grey suede bag with the gold hardware and chain adds a level of sophistication to the whole look. It also makes more of a statement by adding a third tone to the outfit as well. To elevate a look you should always focus on the the shoes, bag and sunnies first. So that’s exactly what I’ve done with this simple but still chic, festival look. In last years festival lookbook I styled lace dresses as well, you can check it out here. All outfit details will be listed below along with direct links to all items featured.

Trend Talk: Off The Shoulder (OTS)

franz a 20160826 0321 zpscfmp8yo9 Trend Talk: Off The Shoulder (OTS)

The OTS (off the shoulder) trend has been very popular recently as I’ve been seeing it everywhere already this summer. What I find so interesting is that this style has actually been a favorite of mine for years. The off the shoulder is a classic and feminine look but still comes off quite sophisticated despite the semi low neckline. The lace on this particular dress also adds a much more delicate and dainty feel. The only flaw with off the shoulder is that, when not cut properly, it can make it hard to lift your arms all the way above your head. So it’s good to keep this sort of thing in mind as it will affect your natural movement.

In fashion you will always see trends come and go; which is why developing your personal style is so important. That can only come with experience though which is why it might take awhile to find out what you don’t like and won’t wear, which is almost just as important as finding what you do like. Don’t be afraid to try new trends. Also, don’t feel like you have to run out and buy something just because all your faves are suddenly wearing it. Especially in a time when you will see the same repeat of outfits with the same exact items across countless social medias, it becomes boring and expected. Almost nothing is in style forever and almost everything ends up coming back around anyways, so just wear what you love! Other outfit details will be listed below along with direct links to all items featured.

Styling: Velvet Winter Dresses In Spring

fix 1 1 zpshaq5r4et Styling: Velvet Winter Dresses In Spring

As you might’ve already guessed from my blog name; velvet dresses are one of my favorite items to wear! Not only are they super stylish and soft but they always add a level of sophistication and class to the outfit, no matter how you style it. Though the hard part for me about styling velvet dresses is that most of them are made for colder months..and living in Southern California we don’t get that much cold weather and our winters are quite short. But I still love to wear my velvet dresses especially on nights out when they actually do a good job of keeping you warm; unlike most other dresses.

The best way to go when styling velvet in warmer weather is to keep it very minimal on the legs, no tights no high socks, and either pairing with some low boots or open toed stilettos/sandals. Also a bell sleeve is a very comfortable option with long sleeve velvet items as it does not stick to your skin. The open keyhole on the chest also helps you to not get too overheated. Ultimately the best way to wear velvet is to keep it very simple on the legs and you probably don’t even need to bring a jacket, because your velvet is going to keep you very warm throughout the night. Other outfit details will be listed below and my festival lookbook is coming next month (in june) so keep an eye out for that! (Sorry for the slight delay on the festival lookbook! It was meant to go up end of this month but I’m busy moving right now! Update soon to come)

Daily Looks: Winter 2017

Screen Shot 2017 05 01 at 11.52.27 PM zps7u4gw45x Daily Looks: Winter 2017

A few of my casual, and not so casual, daily looks from winter 2016/17. Though I will be starting with a few outfits from December, most of these were taken in 2017 right up until last week. I wanted to wait for the cold weather to be officially over before posting this lookbook, and I wanted to be able to include outfits from the rainy/cold days we had in April. Also, my festival lookbook will be coming end of June!

Info on the different daily looks will be listed below, though I will not be listing every item in each look. I will have info on the main item and provided links. However, if there is anything you are ever wondering about that you do see on my blog you can always email me on here or leave a comment, or send a message on any of my various social medias. I will always do my best to help 🙂

Styling: Neutrals

DSF8301 Recovered Recovered zpszjb8iq1l Styling: Neutrals

There is a recent obsession both in the fashion community and of my own, with neutrals. Though black-and-white has always been a staple for many years, the new two colors that I have started seeing everywhere are grey and light pink. Today I want to talk about the grey trend. A head to toe monochrome look in grey, in my opinion, can look a little bit like PJs or lounge clothes due to the color. This is where the use of tailoring and fit is most important. Since this is a bit harder to perfect I did not opt for a full mono look.

In this outfit I decided to really tone down the grey by just styling grey accessories, like my big fuzzy bag and shiny grey boots. I chose these items because they are two different textures; they do not match at all or have that cutesy look you get when you match accessories in an otherwise all black outfit. I love a fuzzy textured bag in early spring because it can still be a bit chilly so it doesn’t look weird to have fur (faux fur btw). With the start of spring and then the onset of summer comes with a more bohemian vibe, so I thought it was perfect to break out my bell sleeve romper. Will be wearing this a lot more this season as rompers are a quick go to item for spring/summer. Other outfit details will be listed below along with direct links to all items featured.
