Lace Up Your Dancing Top

Hi Fash dolls! I can hardly believe it's the last day of September. Maybe this isn't a dancing top but hopefully you got my pun.

Lace up is one of the hottest trends out there. Literally there is lace up on shirts, dresses, down sleeves, or like the neckline of this top. It's bananas but awesome! I found this little lace up top number at TJ Maxx online. I absolutely love this burgundy color for fall it's so rich. Did you catch the bell sleeve on this knit? Just another reason I feel for this top. The jeans are lucky brand which I found for a steal at TJ Maxx in store. I have a hard time finding pants because I'm short & curvy but these fit like a dream.

I challenge you to get a lace up something whether it be a top or dress in your wardrobe. You will certainly be able to find something within your budget & personality! Well dolls tills next time. Happy Shopping !

Stay Sassy + God Bless!

The 70's Called

Hello lovelies, we made it to Friday! This week's look is brought to you by the funky vibes of the 70's. There are so many trends going on in this look so let's get started.

This look features a window pane blouse, faux suede fringe vest, trouser jeans, & clogs. Hi the 70's called & they hope you're enjoying this look. Window pane & fringe are still very prominent trends. This neutral colored vest gives this look some relief, not to mention suede & faux suede in many forms is huge right now for both fall & early spring. Although I am a sucker for a good skinny jean there has been a shift to bootcut & wide leg jeans, they are the best selling shapes in my catalog & have been seen everywhere. I topped this look of with clogs & a belt!

Now I felt a little daring to throw all these trends into one look but, you don't have to! Maybe you only pair a couple of these trends together. Like fringe & wide leg jeans or window pane & faux suede, the possibilities are endless. In fashion there used to be these unwritten rules like don't wear white after Labor Day. Well these unwritten rules are a thing of the past. As long as you love your look & can rock it confidently, go for it!

Well Fash dolls till next time.

Twirl into Fall

Hi fash dolls! I hope this week has been treating you well. I did treat myself to a pumpkin spice latte as the air has been cool & crisp. There is no denying that fall is in the air. I think that every gal needs a dress to twirl into the new season.

This dress I actually got for $3 at my office’s sample sale. Good news for you! There is a ton of trapeze style t-shirt dresses like this one out there now. They make the perfect transition piece. I am wearing mine right now with open toe booties & a fabulous fall hat. When the colder months roll in you can pair a dress like this with tights, tall boots, & a fur vest!

Not to mention this dress is super comfortable. Pick up a dress like this for yourself; it is the perfect fall/winter staple.

Well till next time dolls!

Stay Sassy + God Bless!

Jump{suit} On It

Hi babes! There is no denying that fall is approaching. The morning air is getting crisper & pumpkin spice is out! The weather doesn't change over night, it is a transition. Meaning you can't just swap out your summer clothes for your fall clothes September 1st, you need to ease into it because that is exactly what the weather is doing.

Jumpsuits are a great transition piece! This one is sleeveless but on the chillier days I can cover up my arms with a denim jacket & add a scarf. Bonus, this one has pockets. Polka dot & sleeveless not your cup of tea? Fear not fash doll! Jumpsuits are a trend that are here to stay, there are so many available to you. I was hesitant to try a jumpsuit because I am 5'2, I thought I was too short to pull this off! Shorties you can overcome this by getting your jumpsuit hemmed to your height.

Give jumpsuits a try for yourselves! Find a solid in a your go to color & your favorite sleeve length. Be bold, be you, be beautiful!

Well fash dolls till next time. Thank you for reading!

Breaking Up Doesn't Have to be Hard to do

Breaking up doesn't have to be hard to do, breaking up your sets that is! If you remember my post Set Yourself Apart  I had been sporting a lovely little eyelet trim skirt set number from the Loft. Sets are still a relevant trend but breaking them up & pairing them with other items in your wardrobe can give you more bang for your buck!
Pictured I took the tank from the set & combined it with my favorite pair of boyfriend jeans. Completing the look with a statement necklace, sandals, & a fun clutch!
I would wear the skirt that came with this tank with a basic tee or tank, a dresser statement necklace, & a pair of wedges.
If you have a set at home don't be afraid to break it up & wear the pieces with other garments for versatility. This can decrease your cost per wear. If you don't already own a set consider getting one for yourself. You can wear them together or separate! Whatever you do make sure it's you because you are beautiful.
Well dolls till next time!

Craving Scallops

It was a humid summer New England afternoon a gal, her bestie, & a camera decided to embark on an adventure for scallops!

Okay maybe not scallops as in the food sense but isn't this scalloped trim dress adorable?! It was so humid this day that the scallops weren't really cooperating. I got this coral number at K Posh Boutique. Scalloped hems are one of my favorite spring/summer trends. They are playful, girly, & feminine. You can find scalloped hems on just about anything: skirts, tops, dresses, & shorts!

Try this trend for yourself while the summer is still here! Shop the stores now because there are major sales everywhere.

Also enjoy a sweet treat of 15% off at K Posh Boutique by using my code >GIGI15<. You will receive free shipping on any order over $25.00.

Well Fash Dolls till next time! Don't forget no matter what you put on be you because you are beautiful!

Utilitarian Chic

Utilitarian chic has been a trend since the birth of military inspired garments. These pants embody just that! There are great pockets which could be utilized but the fabric is light enough that these pants don't look too clunky.

I paired these with a white blazer, a tank, & some animal heels to add some edge! These cargos are comfy yet fabulous. I find that I typically have a hard time finding pants because I am short & curvy. These pants are suppose to be ankle length but full length on me, #shortgirlproblems. These beauties are from Metrostyle which is the women's apparel catalog I work on. Guess what? They are on sale!

Right now is an awesome time to shop stores and online because they are in the process of transitioning out the summer merchandise for fall.

Well dolls till next time! I am finishing up this post from the floor of an empty bedroom. Ricky & I are closing/moving into our first home today.

Stay Sassy + God Bless!
