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.…

Styling: Monochrome Textures

DSF8336 zps1eqisvga Styling: Monochrome Textures

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.…

How to Style: Pieces outside your “fashion comfort zone”

TheVelvetDress Shoot2 00dfs01 zpsi7bvenm3 How to Style: Pieces outside your fashion comfort zone

One of my resolutions for this upcoming year is to wear more color, as I wear a lot of black. So when I saw this beautiful printed dress with velvet floral details from Blackwater Boutique, I knew that it was the perfect piece to start off my color collection. This pale pink is not a color I usually wear. Though it has quickly become one of my new favorite pieces because it has really forced me to go outside my comfort zone; now I find myself looking at other items in this color. So I think it’s always good once in a while to take a little fashion risk.…

IMG 8460 zpszdu9870f Styling  Black in (late) Summer

“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.…

GirlBoss Looks: Blazers

chella edit 032 zpsq1c4atcg GirlBoss Looks: Blazers

It was the beautiful mademoiselle Coco Chanel who said, “Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.” which is still one of my favorite quotes. When you dress/feel confident they will remember you. A high quality blazer and “professional” attire go hand and hand in this situation, for this is often when people will not feel their most presentable. I fell in love with this Michael Kors blazer from Fevrie, where they have some great designer brands. I have featured items from them before on my blog, here. The design that the gem/studs create on this blazer is giving me a very Elvis/Bowie vibe for some reason, especially on the back how they all line up down the middle.…
