When black and white collide…

Hello all, I know it’s been a while since my last post, but work has been keeping me very busy. Just stopping in to share this beautiful cold shoulder dress. The blend of black and white is what I loved about the dress, and not to mention the pockets.

Now that’s a major win!

This dress can be purchased at my new favorite store Stage. Although I purchased it in store at Palais Royal, I’m sure you can find her at your local Stage store. I decided to pair the dress with my black and gold belt to add a little spice to it. Now my gold necklace is one of the pieces from my shopping event with Palais Royal, isn’t she gorgeous. What about these booties though, block heels are becoming my go to style for heels. They are Very comfortable and I can’t get enough of them. What are some of your go to style heels?

Set the Stage Review…

09B61704-2767-4EE4-9CA4-1DF6999C1229

I’m so excited to write this post about my Amazing experience I had collaborating with Palais Royal (part of the Stage Family). I have always been an avid shopper of the brand, and this experience solidified why. First let start with the shopping event, it was a cut above the rest. I had my very own personal shopper to help me pick my outfit for the event. Now of course, that was phenomenal. But, the best part of the day was picking an outfit to style for a mannequin. I was like a little kid running through the store, as I saw so many cute styles to choose from.

Jasmine, and her team exceeded my expectations and I was so looking forward to the “Big” day. Being able to share the stage with five other bloggers was so much fun. These ladies were warm, and very friendly, which calm my nerves quite a bit. As this was my first time participating in an event where I had to walk a stage showcasing my fashion choice. The ladies and I laughed, shared stories, and before long my nerves had slowly gone away. Thank you ladies for making this event one for the books.

Now, let’s talk about this beautiful cobalt blue lace dress I wore. The color alone had me feeling so beautiful and feminine. I live for a great lace dress, what about you? The photos really highlight all the details in this dress. The sleeves had to be my favorite part of the dress. I don’t know about you, but it’s just something about lace I can’t get enough of it. So, Trust me when I say this dress is a definitely must have for Fall. The dress can be dressed up for an evening with your significant other, or just an day of brunch with the girls. For my shoes, I went with the Madden Girl floral print heel sandals. And keeping more of the focus on the dress: I opted for gold accessories.

The “Set the Stage” event was outstanding. From the fabulous DJ Ernie ( he kept us moving) to the awesome guest, and the food cater by Cordua (oh my what can I say about that). It was so delish. There was so much love in the room, and you felt it from everyone present. The photo booth was so much fun from The Pic Shop. He provided so many props to choose from. The swag bags for the guest was a nice touch (who doesn’t love free goodies). My mom loved everything in her bag, she even tried to snag my sisters. My dad even won tickets to see his favorite team the Houston Texans.

To top it off, my mannequin was GORG! When I saw this leopard print cardigan I knew that was the perfect piece to showcase my edgy style. The cardigan spoke to me in ways you couldn’t understand. What women doesn’t love leopard print? Although I live in Houston, and you know it can be warm for the next few months. I decided to style the cardigan with a one shoulder black ruffle top. So on the chance it gets a little warm, you can take off the cardigan and you’re still trendy. All I needed to do now was pick the right pair of jeans, and booties of course. Levi jeans are classic, and never go out of style, so I knew that was the right choice. The black booties and tan bag brought the look completely together. All I thought was, my mannequin is fall approved and I loved everything about it.

Thank you to Jasmine and her team for allowing me to be apart of the first ever bloggers event. The hospitality that was displayed by the entire Stage family was one I will never forget. You ladies really know how to make a girl feel special.

Just stopping in to share the must have top for Fall. So, Whose ready for cooler temps?? This season Fall fashions are so rich with color. I’m beyond excited. Well… who am I kidding, I live in Houston and we will have warm temperatures until November. Nonetheless I’m going to put my Fall fashions on and run with it.

Popover cold shoulder dress…

IMG_4275

Happy Monday, I hope everyone had an amazing weekend. I wish I could tell you I did something fun, well this girl had to work the entire weekend. So with that being said, I’m coming to you to share my latest find for the upcoming Fall season.
This dress has all the qualities that I look for with the pleats, the cold shoulder, and most importantly the colors are so pretty and feminine. Purple is my favorite color and I was really looking forward to pairing this dress with my new purple stain heels from DSW. Not to mention, I hadn’t worn my purple Austin earrings, so this was the perfect outfit to complete the look. Who else is looking forward to cooler temps? Who am I kidding I live in Houston, and it’s usually hot most of the year. Have a bless week.

Pretty in pleats…

IMG_3391Hello all! This pretty cobalt blue pleated dress was a deal I couldn’t pass up. As I walked, the dress just flowed with ease. Can you believe I paid under $20 for this gorgeous dress! Remember, when I said fashion is coming out of your comfort zone. That’s exactly what I meant, take a chance on something you wouldn’t normally purchase. As I looked around in my closet, I only own one other pleated dress and it’s also from Stage. This dress is feminine and the color is great for Summer, and it also comes in black. Yes, I purchased that one as well. Until next time.

~Hugs and Kisses~
