Fall In Love With Polka Dots…

0BD6A816-6177-4231-9F7A-E9F9B180CF33

Hello friends,
The weather was perfect yesterday here in Houston. When the weather cooperates, it’s the best time to pull out the cutest OTS dress I’ve purchased this year. Polka dots are so in right now, are you a fan? Mix polka dots and OTS and I’m sold. When I saw this gorgeous dress online from Charlotte Russe, I knew she was definitely going in my cart. What I didn’t know was, how much I would love the rich and bold mustard color…

The ruffle details on the dress was a bonus. I couldn’t wait to style her. I decided to keep my accessories neutral, keeping the focus on this darling number. I’m so happy brands are venturing away from the standard black and white polka dots. This dress represented me to the fullest, “Fun and Flirty.” However, I do have sad news to share, as she is sold out online, but try your local store, because you need this dress in your life. I’m linking a few polka dot dresses that I thought you would love though.

Until next time,

The Four Fashionista’s Spring Edition…

Happy Tuesday, I’m so excited about this post, because I’ve collaborated with three of my absolute favorite fashionistas. We all met on IG, and our love for Fashion brought us all together. None of us have actually met in person, but I feel a connection with them and look forward to many more collaborations with these beauties. Our theme was Spring dresses, and each lady nailed it.

Now, when I was thinking about the dress I wanted to showcase, I went with this super cute floral dress from SheIn. The dress hadn’t received any reviews yet (I was a little worried), but I knew it would be perfect for me, so I took a chance. When she arrived, I was left speechless, something that doesn’t happen often. THOSE SLEEVES THOUGH… Can you see all the details on her? So, you tell me what’s not to love! I added my black block heels, and to bring out one of the colors in the dress, I went with white tassel earrings. And to complete the look, I went with a black bag.

Mary Byrd aka Curlybyrdie

I’ve followed this beauty, almost as long as I’ve been on IG. She never disappoints with her fashions. I instantly felt a connection with her, maybe it’s our love for New York and Company, or that we both have curly in our name, but nonetheless I look forward to finally meeting her in person. Mary, is here to bring Polka dots to life… as polka dots are classic and never go out of style. And what girl doesn’t love polka dots. I especially adored the knot front on the dress, as it added a bit of sass. Mary completed her look with the cutest accessories, red sandals, gorgeous embroidered handbag and statement earrings. Looking fabulous my friend!

Lydia is the epitome of class. I fell in love with her fabulous style, and I knew we were destined to be friends. Lydia, cold shoulder maxi dress left me wanting more, as I’m obsessed with cold shoulder dresses. Now, how can you look at this dress and not have Spring vibes! The flowers on the dress brought it all together, don’t you think? I love how she kept her accessories with a neutral color. This fab find, was beyond gorgeous and most importantly screamed femininity. Looking stunning my friend!

Bold and Fabulous Floral Dress…

Hello friends,

Stopping in to share this floral print dress, as floral prints are a must have for Spring and Summer. I couldn’t wait until the weather got a bit warmer here in Houston. Because what girl doesn’t adore flowers and dresses. Put those two together, and it’s a WIN-WIN. What would have really been great if the dress had pockets, but nonetheless it was love at first sight. But, remember when choosing one, the key is to pick one that is flattering and complimentary to your body and style. For me, the bigger the flowers are the better. Now, always keep the accessories to a minimum.

I opted to not wear a necklace with this dress, as I wanted the focus to be on the dress. With so many colors in the dress, it wasn’t a hard choice when I decided to wear my red tassel earrings, and red mules. Any color earrings would have enhanced the dress, but red has been my go to color when I’m looking for a little spice. What are some of your go to colors? I finished the look with my super cute black bow bag. I had a bow thing going on… So, tell me how do you feel about flower dresses? Would you be bold enough to wear one?

Until next time,

Red and white Gingham Top…

7068BEEB-9D9D-429E-BCEF-84E24FDD05A1

Hello friends,
We need to talk! This gingham red top is a must have for Spring and Summer. Like I’ve shared in my previous post, you will see me in so much gingham print. This is one trend I am extremely excited about. What about you, is this a print you can see yourself wearing. When you think about gingham print, remember it was started in France. Now how can you deny the print now.

I purchased this top, drumroll please… from Target. I decided to pair it with my red pants. These red pants were super long, so guess what. I got the scissors and started cutting. I wasn’t finished just yet, I wanted a frayed hem look, so me and the tweezers became one. Finally, I completed the pants with sandpaper to add a little distressed look. I’m sure you can hear the excitement in my voice, when I say I was ecstatic with the outcome.

The only thing I needed now was shoes, and my bag. I completed the look with my cognac sandals, and cognac purse. I fell in love with this cognac bag, because of the shape of it. I had never ordered from this company before, but to my surprise the purse was EVERYTHING… Now this girl was ready for a fun filled day of shopping.

 

Until next time,

Gingham Palazzo Pants…

Hello friends,
Just stopping in to share my love for these super cute Gingham Palazzo Pants. Because when I think of Spring, the first thing that comes to mind is Gingham. What about you? The print is so timeless. Yeah… I know what you may be thinking, Gingham kinda reminds you of a picnic tablecloth. Well, this Spring you will see me in quite a bit of gingham. What are some of your favorite prints?

These fabulous pants are from my favorite store, New York and Company. I decided to pair the pants with a green top to add a bit of color. Now being a petite woman, I should have gotten the pants hemmed, but I was anxious to wear them. I ordered them in petite, but they were still very long. And finally, the pink bag brought the entire look together.

 

Until next time,

Hello friends,

The excitement I felt when I put on this beautiful cape dress, I had to stop in to share. I had no idea that I would love this dress so much. As a women who loves Fashion, finding the right dress can change your entire outlook. This dress was no exception. The fit was perfect, as it hugged me in all the right places.

Lately, I’ve been doing a great deal of online shopping. It’s so easy to do, but sometimes it’s an epic fail. You just never know if the product is going to fit. Even though you may follow the size guide, there is still a chance the fit will be off. How about you, do you do more online shopping? For me, I will hold onto clothes that didn’t fit, yeah I know crazy. Whether it’s too big, or too small, I just don’t like returning anything.

Now back to our regularly scheduled program. This dress also came in black, I’m just sorry I didn’t order it. Enters my sad face, as both colors are sold out. I looked online everywhere for a dress similar, and unfortunately I couldn’t find one anywhere. I honestly found a gem with her, and everyone else must have too.

Being a petite woman, finding the right dress can sometime be challenging. I’m sure my petite woman can relate. Most of the models that are wearing the dresses are usually taller, so of course the look want be the same on me. In the words of Tim Gunn, I make it work. At the same time, I hope it doesn’t make me look frumpy.

I decided to pair the dress with my Calvin Klein boots, and my black tights. Adding my box bag, brought the entire look together. This box bag will add just the right amount of sass to any outfit. What do you think? It’s actually one of the best purchases I’ve made from Sam Moon. If you live in Houston, you really need to visit this store. The store is any girls dream. I’ll say it’s accessory heaven. All the pieces I’m wearing have been sold out online, however I’m sharing a few similar pieces I know you will love.

Until next time,

The Camo Jacket…

Happy Sunday, can you believe November is right around the corner. Where has this year gone? But, on another note that only means that Christmas will be here before you know it. And for those that don’t know, that’s my favorite holiday.

One thing I realized about Fall and Winter is having a great jacket can change the total look of your outfit. That’s exactly how I felt when I put this jacket on. This camo jacket can be styled so many ways. I decided to pair my jacket with black jeans, black sheer top, and neutral color booties. To really elevate my look, I added a pop of color with my bag and earrings.

Camo jackets is one of those styles that will always be around. Definitely a staple piece to add to your wardrobe. Another option on styling the jacket is with a cute skirt, thigh high boots, and a lace tank. Trust me, this jacket will be on major repeat this season, because the options are endless. My top or booties are not available online, so I’m sharing a few styles I know you will love.

Until next time,
