Closet Staples: Lace Dresses

A little lace dress is the perfect summer day to night outfit. It’s a very versatile piece that you can throw on quickly for the day and can easily transition into the evening. You can grab pretty much any dress if your in a bit of a rush and still want to look put together. This is why they are the most packed/worn summer travel item as well. The first thing that I loved about this dress is the big cut out detail on the chest. I like that it shows some skin and adds a bit of a feminine touch to an otherwise dark look.…

Closet Staples: Designer Sunglasses

IMG 5729 zpsc16iscij Closet Staples: Designer Sunglasses

I’m always on the hunt for a good quality pair of sunglasses. Though its hard to find ones I don’t see on anyone else, without buying straight from the designers. This is why I was so happy to find Fashion Eyewear. I was very impressed with my designer sunglasses from them, and I have worn them quite often so I can give a proper review. The reason why I personally choose to invest in designer sunglasses, aside from very important fashion reasons, is that I have very sensitive eyes. I find that most cheap sunglasses you can only wear for a few hours until your vision can become a bit distorted from the cheap glass.…

Closet Staples: Timepiece

new zpsh0hfaonl Closet Staples: Timepiece

A classic minimalist timepiece is a must-have accessory in every woman’s wardrobe. Not only is it a functional item because you won’t be distracted by your phone to check the time, but it goes with almost any outfit with minimal styling effort. It’s a staple piece, and one that’s been worn proudly by woman for awhile now. Though not too long ago it was actually taboo for women to wear a pocket watch as it was seen as a man’s accessory only, but then wristwatches came along and changed all that. Now anyone can wear them with confidence.

Daniel Wellington has a variety of watches, though I was most attracted to the classic vintage style and this beautiful Swarovski crystal design.…

Closet Staples: Printed Tanks

MG 05301 zpsvt1nyv0u Closet Staples: Printed Tanks

Growing up, regardless of my current style, I wore some sort of graphic design top almost every day in high school. I feel like a cute comfortable tank is a closet staple that you’ll find in any teenager to 20 somethings wardrobe. However, the older you get, the harder it becomes to style them effortlessly. It’s easy to throw them on with pants and a leather jacket for a casual look, but sometimes you want to glam it up look a bit. I have featured this brand on my blog before here, and here. They make comfortable clothes, and comfort is a must to me when it comes to basics.…

Closet Staples: Bold Color Coat

best 3 zpsvxzuegt6 Closet Staples: Bold Color Coat

One of my favorite winter/fall pieces is a bold colored faux fur coat. I feel like a bright colored outerwear piece is a staple in any woman’s wardrobe. It’s a bit taboo in winter, because summer is the time of year known for wearing bright and bold colors. Then darker drab colors and shades are typically saved for winter and colder months; I like to challenge that. This is one of my favorite coats and has been appropriately nicknamed, the cookie monster coat, because of it’s blue color. The interesting thing about this coat, and what actually first attracted me to it, is that the color changes depending on the light.…
