Dare to Bare

Still don’t know what to wear on your hot date for Valentine’s Day? Well here’s some inspiration! I found three shoulder baring tops that add the perfect touch of sexy. Tops that show of your shoulders can be fun and flirty, which is why these tops are an ideal fit for Valentine’s Day!

Top #1: American Apparel “Choker Top 

Top #2: Missguided “Long Sleeve Jersey Top

Top #3: Fashion Nova “Mackenzie Top

These tops are perfect for date night. Wear them with jeans and heels for a more casual look. Or dress them up with a sleek pair of trousers, a midi or leather skirt, along with a killer pair of heels and a red hot lip to make things more interesting! (In the photos I paired each top with the bottoms from my “Oh So Tight Set” by Naked Wardrobe and I’m wearing Mac Cosmetics “Ruby Woo” lipstick).

Hope everyone enjoys their Valentine’s Day! xo

Valentine’s Day Hairspiration

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching! So I decided to do a post to provide you gals with a little hair inspiration for the day of love. Here are three quick and easy hairstyles to complete your Valentine’s Day look.

Tools Used: For all three hairstyles all I used were a few hair comb clips and bobby pins.

Hairstyle #1 “One Sided Do”

Hairstyle #2 “High Pony & Faux Bangs”

Hairstyle #3 “Bun Head”

Little Black Dress

lil blk dress4“The little black dress” every girl knows it’s a necessity! It’s the dress that serves a thousand purposes, when in doubt always go for your LBD! It’s a classic so you never have to worry about not being fashionable, along with always having the option of keeping it simple or pushing the limits. It’s the dress that keeps you feeling confident, so even if you’re someone who swears off dieting and indulges in your guilty pleasures every now and then, have no fear the LBD is here to save the day! With the abundance of black dresses out there, you are bound to find the perfect LBD that flatters you. (I promise!)

So with Valentine’s Day sneaking up on us, I thought this was perfect timing for this post. I know what you’re probably thinking “isn’t red or pink more suitable for the occasion?” One might think so, but thats not necessarily the case for everyone. This is for my ladies who prefer the “all black everything” look and are not fans of bold colors like red or the femininity of pink. And that’s just fine! Like I mentioned earlier the LBD works for any occasion. Take a look at my LBD option for the day of love (aka Valentine’s Day):

Dress: American Apparel (here) // Belt: Love Culture (similar and here) // Shoes: Target // Lipstick: Ruby Woo by MAC

I wanted to go for a “va va voom” kind of look. After all, it is for Valentine’s Day so why not throw our significant other a bone and give them a little eye candy (wink). I thought this American Apparel dress was the perfect dose of sexy with its deep v-neck cut, while the length kept it looking classy! I added my gold chain front belt to accentuate my waist a little more, and opted for my black caged heels. I decided to throw in a little bit of color, so I went for a red lip (Ruby Woo red to be exact, it’s definitely one of my go to lip colors…you should check it out at your nearest MAC store.) If you’re someone who’s afraid of color this is a perfect way to experiment, go ahead and incorporate some color to your outfit by playing around with some lipstick…baby steps! Who knows, you might actually love it and start working that color into your wardrobe!

Thanks for stopping by loves! xo.

Golden Girl

Are you still searching for that perfect holiday outfit? Well then, it’s a good thing you decided to pay Style_Dose a visit! Today’s post will hopefully inspire some holiday worthy outfits. I, myself was actually looking for some holiday outfit inspiration when I came across a gold sequin cropped top in my closet. The gold and sequin combination had holiday written all over it! So the star of today’s post will be…yup, you guessed it! – That little gold sequin cropped top. I put together two different looks with this one top, hope you guys like it!

Note: All the pieces I am wearing are all older. However, I did my best to find similar pieces for you guys! Keep reading to get the details!

OUTFIT #2

Skirt: BCBG (similar one here and here) // Thigh High Socks: American Apparel (here) // Watch: Michael Kors

I had forgotten all about this little gold top – isn’t it the best when you find hidden treasures in your closet?! For outfit number one I went for a more simple look, pairing the top with my black high waisted pants. I felt like the shirt made a statement all on it’s own so pairing it with simple black pants would still make the outfit stand out. As for outfit number two I wanted to go for a more trendy and flirty look. I decided to pair the top with my black body-con skirt that I hiked up a bit in order to rock my thigh high socks. I thought the thigh high socks made the outfit look a bit more trendy.

Now here are some close ups of my hair and makeup:
