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

Fashion Remix: One Skirt, Three Looks

Do you ever look in your closet and realize you’ve worn a certain piece only once or twice? Story of my life! As I was looking for an outfit the other day, it striked me that I have so many versatile pieces that I’ve only worn once. I hadn’t taken advantage of the fact I could create so many different looks around certain pieces. Therefore, I decided to challenge myself for now on, by seeing how many different looks for different occasions I could create using one of the pieces in my closet. For my first challenge I choose my faux leather midi skirt by Necessary Objects that I purchased at Century21 Department Stores. I created three different looks for three different agendas. Take a look!

1. Running Errands: I put together this comfy outfit which is ideal for any day time activities. Who said you can’t look cute while running some errands?! So for this first look, I paired the skirt with a graphic sweatshirt and my white converses creating a comfy and stylish look.

Sweatshirt: Forever21 // Skirt: Century21 Department Stores // Sneakers: Converses

2. Dinner Date: Whether you’re going on a hot date or just dinner and cocktails with the gals, this outfit would be great. I paired the skirt with a black (going for that all black errthing look) tank top which had a cool neckline, keeping things interesting. I added a silver statement necklace and wore laced up wedges to give this look a bit of an edge.

Top: Forever21 // Necklace: Forever21 // Skirt: Century21 Department Stores

 3. Night Out: Throw on a little crop top, some chunky gold bling, and some sexy strappy heels and voila!…You have yourself a perfect outfit for the party scene!

Fevrie Dress Review

We all love a good LBD, but let’s face it sometimes it can get a little boring. A girl needs to switch it up sometimes! I’m always on the hunt for a good dress, that way, I’m ready for any occasion whether it be a Holiday party, hot date, or a night out with the gals. I am obsessed with midi dresses at the moment. So when I seen this little hot number on fevrie.com, I knew it would be a perfect addition to my dress collection!

Dress: c/0 Fevrie (here) // Shoes: Unlisted by Kenneth Cole //Necklace: Forever21

This dress was just perfect! The cut out on the sides and the deep v-neck gives the dress a sexy touch, while the length still keeps it classy. It doesn’t end there! Even the back of the dress kept things interesting, as it gives the illusion that you’re wearing a two piece. I even like the visible dark trimmed zipper down the back. I thought that small detail gave the dress a little bit of an edge. Since the dress itself is such a statement piece on it’s own, I chose to keep everything else simple. I paired the dress with nude pumps that matched my neutral toned makeup and added a small silver necklace that was perfect for the neck line. This dress is ideal for a night out and with New Years right around the corner you’ll have the perfect excuse to rock this dress and turn some heads!

Miami Diaries

Ready for it or not, summer has come to an end…(sad times). After weeping about the fact summer has ended, I decided that I was going to end my summer with a bang in one of my favorite destinations, Miami! It was the perfect scene for labor day weekend as I enjoyed my last days of summer.

I didn’t get a chance to photograph as much as I wanted to since time really does fly when you’re having fun but any who, here is a look at my Miami style:

Bienvenidos a Miami!

What a beautiful view!

Heels and Camo Combo

Camouflage always seems to find its way back into our closets. I personally love the whole camo vibe, from the army prints to the hunter greens. When you think camouflage “tomboy or “casual” might come to mind, but with all the fun styles that incorporate the camo print, you can easily take that look from day to night!

I bought a pair of army printed joggers not too long ago and the first time I wore them I kept it more on the casual side. However, last Thursday I was going out for a ladies night and was trying to decide on what to wear. I didn’t want to get all dressed up, but didn’t want to be too casual…I needed something in between. So with the whole sweatpants and heels trend going on, I was inspired to pull a look together with my camo joggers for my Thursday night out. Keep scrolling to see how I styled my army joggers!

Body Shirt: (old staple piece in my closet) // Jogger Pants: Love Culture // Shoes: Target // Necklace: Mad Rag

I decided to keep it a bit simple, so I paired the army joggers with a basic black t-shirt. To keep the outfit from looking too casual and give it a flirty touch, I chose to wear my black caged heels. I accessorized with a chunky gold necklace and kept it on the dark side with my lipstick choice and went for big hair to finish off my look.

Holy Chic

“Holy Chic”…how awesome is that phrase?! There’s only one thing that can make it better, having it printed on a cozy sweater! A black sweater is always an essential for the cold weather, and I thought having a cute phrase on it would make an outfit a little more fun and interesting. I scored this cute sweater at Forever21, they always have the cutest things!

Sweater: Forever21 // Pants: Love Culture // Boots: H&M

I decided to pair the sweater with my burgundy waxed pants, instead of going with black or regular jeans to make the outfit stand out more. My black booties worked perfectly to pull the whole look together, as it helped make the black sweater pop more against the burgundy pants. To dress up my outfit just a tad bit, I went ahead and threw on my black and gold chunky necklace. For the final touches, I opted for a dark burgundy lip to compliment my pants and went with a chic braided updo.

Here’s a closer look at my hair:

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!
