Scarf Staples

IMG_0232DSC_0842DSC_0823

Looking to update your wardrobe but not trying to break the bank? Scarves are definitely a solution to your problem. Scarves range in price and are available in a wide range of styles and fabrications. Not only is there a surplus of scarves attainable by an exchange of currency but there is also a variety of ways to tie these versatile accessories. Each way to wear can elevate your ensemble and make your outfit look different. I have pictured 3 different ways to tie a scarf.

The Basic Loop

This style is the most common and simple way to tie a scarf. Drape 1/4 of the scarf and take the remaining 3/4 and wrap it around your neck and let the other end drape. An effortless and chic look!

The Vest Editors note-I am using the same scarf throughout this entire post. How cool is this vest look? And it can be accomplished by the same scarf used in the basic loop. To accomplish this look start by folding your scarf in half then tie the folded end with the ends of the scarf. This will create armholes, simple throw it on and go!

The Pretzel

This scarf tie is the most complex out of the three. Take your scarf in half then take one end and pull it thru the loop. Then take the second end and go under thru the loop. Adjust accordingly. This look is cozy and draws the attention closer to the neck. You would want to use this style when wearing a simple top.

I hope these steps help and if you have any questions feel free to email me at fashology101@gmail.com, I am happy to answer any questions. As a bride-to-be on a tight budget I know personally I have been utilizing the versatility of scarves to elevate my wardrobe. Have fun with it and happy shopping! Till next time dolls.

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.

Tasteful Tulle

 It was Christmas time last year and a brunette had found herself longing for the perfect tulle skirt. She couldn't find one anywhere that had the quality and price she desired. The brown haired girl forgot about the skirt for a while until she got engaged. That brunette was me and I knew that for my engagement photos I had to get my hands on a tulle skirt. I finally found one at Tobi.

Now buying something for just one occasion isn't my style or financially responsible. I am the type of shopper that likes to get the most for my money. The outfit pictured is a tasteful way to wear tulle. I paired it with this chambray shirt, pearls, & awesome BCBG heels. I would wear this out to dinner with friends or restyle it for a holiday party. I also plan on wearing this to my bridal shower. Tulle can give off a romantic and feminine look. Give it a shot for yourself! Channel your inner Carrie Bradshaw. How ever you decide to style your tulle don't forget to always express who you are. Fashion is fun don't be afraid to try new things.

Well dolls till next time. Check out this photo of how I styled the skirt for Ricky and I's engagement shoot.WIL0089

Give your wardrobe a touch of sophistication

IMG_0543-4IMG_0555-7IMG_0562-12IMG_0577-17 Quick! Take a moment to in-vision yourself or someone you know in a blazer. What is your initial interpretation? The person you pictured must look put together, authoritative, professional, or intellectual. These thoughts are common when describing blazers, they add instant style to any ensemble. The blazer is a staple piece worth investing in. The beauty of these jackets is that they can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Featured is this black and white striped blazer found at Daisy Riley (Plymouth, MA) for $69.00. The jacket is dressed up over a little black dress with patent leather red pumps perfect for work. Transition your blazer to a less formal event like drinks with the girls or date night with your man by pairing it with jeans, a basic t-shirt, and fabulous heels. Go completely causal by kicking off your pumps and throwing on a pair of flats or sneakers, a great look for adventures or a day of shopping. (Chuck Taylor's are my personal fav)

Typically, when searching for wardrobe staples the key is to purchase neutral colors, this allows for versatility. There are a plethora of different styles blazers available to you. You may find a blazer that will fit perfect throughout the torso but, the sleeves are too long. Buy it and get the sleeves hemmed. I always tell my clients that ready to wear(buying off the rack) is always almost ready to wear. Meaning, manufacturers cut clothing to different specifications so, if you find a piece you love and fits you perfect for the exception of one spot, buy that item and take it to a seamstress.

Well dolls I hope this has inspired you to go out and find your special blazer. This jacket will add instant sophistication to your wardrobe. As illustrated blazers can be accessorized for any occasion, you will definitely get your moneys worth.

Till next week! Stay Sassy xo
