Pattern Play

Nothing can brighten up your day quite like some fresh blooms! I am currently crushing on this pattern play dress! This floral & stripe number is from the catalog I work on,  Metrostyle. Did I mention it is under $50.00?!

I am a fan of mixing prints together but it can seem tricky. These prints work together because they are both bold & have common colors. There is also a lot of white giving the eye some relief.

Afraid of looking like a thrown together hot mess? Try staying within the same color family. Like I mentioned the prints pictured work because they both have black & white. The yellow brings a nice pop of color. Stripes are a good place to start because you can mix nearly anything with them. I never hesitate to add an animal print like cheetah. It can look lovely with stripes & window pane.

I think the most import thing to remember with mixing prints is to not be  afraid to take risks! If you look at yourself in the mirror & feel like you look disheveled take off what your wearing. Take your time until you find a combo you can feel chic in!

Well dolls till next time!

Faux Leather in the Office

I am obsessing over faux leather. Skirts, dresses, pants, little accents, you name it. I wore a faux leather skirt for Thanksgiving and I am a true believer in wearing faux leather anywhere, even in the office.

This dress features a ponte knit top with a faux leather skirt. I paired this number with a white blazer, covered my legs with black tights, and completed the look with pearls and cheetah heels. This ensemble exudes femininity with an edge, it is classic yet chic. A great example on how to wear your faux leather in the office.

Faux leather can come off rather edgy and often thought as a fabrication for a night out. Well the perfect combination of accessories can transition your faux leather to the office. I challenge you to put your most fashionable foot forward next time you head into work. It is easy to get in the habit of forgetting style when dressing for work. Don't forget that dressing and fashion simply isn't just about garments and name brands, it is about expressing yourself and exuding confidence in who you are!

Till next time dolls! I hope the snow didn't hit you too hard.

Feeling Fringe

Currently fringe is one of the hottest trends out there. These shredded hemlines can be seen on accessories, footwear, dresses, sweaters, etc. Fringe can add an unexpected edge to any ensemble. Here I gave my fringe a bit of a fierce meets 90's grunge vibe. I paired this Joplin Wolfepack with a flannel, black skinnies, and killer cheetah heels.

Trends can be risky business and how much you buy into it depends on your fashion personality. Fringe fits mine perfectly so I would invest in this trend like purchasing this bag from Gina DeWolfe. If you are more on the conservative side I would suggest starting with an inexpensive piece. Dip your toe with a small cross body or any other accessory. Fringe is HOT and it looks like it is here to stay for a few seasons. Give it a shot for yourself!

Happy Shopping!

Put Your Very Vest Forward

If you live in Massachusetts (even if you don't), you should be aware that it is going to hit the seventies on Monday. I repeat seventy degrees in October. No matter your location, New England is notorious for its unpredictable weather. A vest is a perfect way to keep up with the constantly changing atmosphere. Not only are vests a good transition piece but they are the latest trend. Right now you will see tailored vests which are super chic (and I am currently on the market for one myself) but this one is flowy and fun.

This vest I got at a little boutique in Connecticut on my way to one of my buying trips to NYC. I fell in love the neutral tie dye and the versatility of this piece. It is outfitted with black skinny jeans, booties, and a tank for this warmer weekend. Take it into winter by switching out the tank with a long sleeve black t-shirt and push it to summer by throwing it over a dress with sandals. The vest trend is here to stay and worth investing in. I favor this trend over others because the vest can truly be worn all year round. You are spending money on clothing and you want to make sure you are getting your monies worth! Vests are out there and you will be able to find one that perfectly fits your personality and budget. As always make sure it flatters your wonderful and unique shape.

Well dolls till next time! Happy shopping and enjoy this lovely weekend.
