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.…

“Fashion fades, only style remains the same”. Trends come and go but when you truly love a design, it will be a staple in your wardrobe for many years. I’m sure you have all noticed a big Gucci trend this year. All of the new Gucci designs are so beautiful and I have been seeing them everywhere. I don’t think I’ve seen hardly any outfits lately without that statement Gucci belt and usually a matching bag to accompany it. So I knew I had to break out my favorite shiny vintage Gucci boots and show them off in an outfit before winter was over.…

A simple classic wrap dress is a staple in any wardrobe, though typically you see the full longer sleeve and shorter above the knee cut. This is a bit of a different take on the wrap dress; as it is a short sleeve and a long maxi style dress with a slit up the front. One of my favorite ways to wear classic pieces is to find a version of it that has more of a modern design. Though this is definitely more of a fall and spring time item, you just need to layer a coat to make it perfect for winter.…

D 01 1 1 Styling: Flats

It’s not too often that you’ll find me in flat shoes, but when I have a busy day and am trying to dress casual they are my best option. Though its often hard to find flat shoes that aren’t sneakers but are just as comfortable and durable, both of these looks feature these little black lace up flats by Restricted Shoes. I love the vintage inspired design and the classy bowtie front on these flats. I wore all black in two looks to show a simple day to night transition. Both looks also feature gold hardware which accentuates my new favorite little gold necklace from Muisse Jewelry.…

“Women who wear black lead colorful lives.” Wearing my new favorite hat with a vintage gold embroidered trim to add a bit of color to my all black look. I decided to pair the gold detailing on my hat with the chain on my bag and the frames on my sunnies. You will be seeing a lot more all black outfits from me this fall season as it’s basically half my wardrobe. I also had to throw on my thin velvet choker from Regal Rose, this piece is perfect for everyday looks as it’s not as thick and “statement” as the one I featured in my previous look.…
