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.…View Post
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.…View Post
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.…View Post
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.…View Post
When styling an all black outfit, texture is key. I’m wearing my new favorite soft faux fur coat and new go-to black leather bag in today’s look. I had to do one classic all black look to end the winter season as this is the sort of outfit I find most comfortable. My thigh high velvet boots with the metallic heel add a bit of sparkle to the outfit and is a good complement to the furry coat. The minimalism design of the smooth leather bag contrasts really well with the texture on both the coat, the boots and the design on my tights.…View Post
