Styling: Pearls


IMG 5892 after zpsknn9rcdv Styling: Pearls

Since Valentine’s Day is fast approaching I want to feature a perfect little delicate gift. Pearls have always been a luxury status symbol in fashion and society. A simple little pair of pearl earrings is I think one of the best valentine’s gifts you can get, and also one of the safest if you don’t know their exact personal favorite style. They are romantic and beautiful but also very practical; they are a nice addition to your wardrobe as they are a very classic piece. Never too over-the-top but also always a very sophisticated look. I am also a fan of this design because of the very small delicate pearls, as I feel like a large pearl earring can look a bit costume.…

Closet Staples: Wrap Dress

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.…

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: Classy Black Dress

rose garden 104 zps0xmo9cir Closet Staples: Classy Black Dress

A must have item in any woman’s wardrobe is a classy black dress. I’m sure most of us already have the LBD (little black dress) but that is usually more in reference to a going out or “party” dress. This black dress is more of a step up, a piece you can wear during the day or on a night out. In my opinion, a classy black dress should preferably hit at least to your knees, while still maintaining a feminine silhouette. This super soft bell sleeve dress from Killstar is the perfect classy black dress for fall and winter. It is long sleeve and comes about to the knees but still shows off the low neckline, waist and feminine bell sleeves.…
