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.…

Closet Staples: Rompers

blais photography 3 zpsjklacmsa Closet Staples: Rompers

Hopefully this is my last warmer weather outfit for at least a few months as it is now finally just started to get a bit cooler. I can’t wait to break out all my velvet, faux fur, shiny leather and cashmere! However, today’s look is just a simple daily outfit of what I typically slip on for a busy day. I think a comfortable romper is the perfect item for this, especially for when you need to get out of the house fast. You put on just one item and then slip on some shoes and grab a bag; you can be out the door in literally less than five minutes.…

Closet Staples: Diamond Necklace

IMG 9048 1 1 zpsim82ejqr Closet Staples: Diamond Necklace

They say diamonds are a girls best friend and I think that saying alone should indicate that diamonds are a staple in any woman’s wardrobe. They add a little bling to any outfit without looking too over the top. A delicate little diamond necklace will always look classy and elegant, and more importantly, not come across as too flashy. This is an item you could pair with jeans and a t-shirt on a casual day out running errands, or you could pair it with your nicest evening gown on the way to a big gala event. Either style could work and you would look both put together and not too overly dressed, which can be a fine line to walk with most diamond pieces.…

How To Wear: Chokers

TheVelvetDress TheVelvetDress 0002 1 zpsfh2kdrjq How To Wear: Chokers

You’ve probably noticed the choker trend coming in full force for fall. It seems as though every look I see lately has a choker (or several) incorporated into it. Although they have mostly been seen as a fall/winter piece in the past, it’s actually pretty easy to rock a choker with a variety of styles. I have seen them worn with heavier jackets/winter looks to simple summer tank tops and floral dresses. My personal favorite way to style a choker is with a low V-cut neckline. So I decided to pair my favorite thick black velvet choker from Regal Rose with my favorite red dress with velvet floral detailing.…
