Lace up beauties..

Happy Monday, ladies! I hope everyone had an amazing weekend! Mine was nice and relaxing, which is exactly what I needed after a long week!
I wanted to show you these perfect brown chunky heel lace-up boots that I’m wearing non-stop from Ippo Shop. Because of the block heels they are very comfy to walk on and I love them paired with my super skinny jeans and neck tie blouse. I finished this look with my favorite sunnies and my ever green Louis Vuitton tote. If you wanna wear something a little preppier, then work the Blair Waldorf vibes in a skater skirt or a pretty dress for a feminine but edgy look!
Check out Ippo shop if you’re looking for some trendy shoes. They have everything from over the knee boots to booties and sandals in so many different colors for amazing prices!
Let me know what you think of this look and I wish you all an amazing start of the week!

Glitz and glam..

Hi ladies,
The holiday season officially comes to a close as soon as the ball drops on New Year’s Eve. While we still get to enjoy all that Christmas has to offer this week, it’s never too early to plan for your next celebration. The ultimate party of the year is a couple of days away and let’s face it… there’s nothing more perfect to wear on New Year’s Eve than a sequin mini-dress. I think sequins and sparkles are a must for New Year’s Eve attire. And you’ll never believe where I found this gem of a dress! Yep, T.J. Maxx. It also comes in a black sparkle and is only $59.

Now, you probably aren’t going to get a whole lot of use out of a sequin dress. Am I right? But this Ralph Lauren sequin dress is an exception. While holding its own in the glitz & glam department, this dress somehow pulls it off and remains beautiful and classy. It is so versatile in that it works as a NYE sequin dress, but it’s also appropriate for cocktail events and such.

I am obsessed with the drape pattern which gives it that little extra something special. To really let the dress shine, I kept accessories minimal and paired with my favorite gold pumps. This dress will definitely have staying power in my closet, and it needs to make its way into yours before it sells out! I’ve also shared some of my favorite sequin dresses at the moment in the widget below.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! I am so looking forward to 2017 and all it has to bring!!!

Fit and flare dress..

 

 

Hi ladies!
When it comes to pretty dresses, you can never go wrong with a classic fit and flare dress. A fit and flare dress is my absolute favorite dress silhouette. It’s universally flattering, and never fails to make your legs look longer than they actually are! This dark floral dress from JC Penney made me swoon from the first moment I saw it online.
I mean, how could you not adore this fit and flare dress? Its vintage style gives an air of sophistication and the cut is flattering for all body types. I am so obsessed with this dress! It’s sleeveless, so you can wear an extra cardigan or jacket to stay warm. I styled this dress with gold pumps and my favorite dangling pearl earrings for a festive look. For a complete business casual look, put on a pair of black pointed heels and keep it simple with small studs.
This dress is not only perfect for the holidays, but also perfect for brunch dates, afternoon tea with the girls or whenever you want to feel classic and timeless! Check out some of my favorites in the widget below!

Happy Friday, everyone!

When dressing for the winter, warmth is of paramount importance. So obviously jackets are essential. But up there just behind warmth, is the basic human need to look and feel great! Hehe!

This sleek deep navy jacket from Nordstrom is one such piece. It is a must have in your winter closet. It is one of those chic, timeless pieces that will keep your look on point and also will keep you warm, especially if you live in blizzard territory!

Holiday sparkle..

Happy hump day, everyone!

This is the season for holiday attire! I can’t help but get excited to dress up this time of year. But what to wear on a holiday party is a matter of where you’re going and what look you’re hoping to get. Personally I think this time of year is the best time to go wild on sequins. Just cause it’s fun and not ridiculous to go all the way on glamour! Also, sequins are a must for holiday parties and New Year’s Eve! Here are two of my favorite sequin dress styles.

Outfit 1:

Outfit 2: 

If you want to get a super hot, but tasteful look, opt for a mini sequined long sleeved dress (black, blue & nude tones are amazing). For these looks you have to say goodbye to big extravagant accessories and limit yourself to simple tiny/medium sized earrings, a ring or a bracelet. Oh… and a clutch of course. Throw over a knee length coat to keep you warm if you’re in a chilly climate and you’re all fashionably cozy and ready for your holiday parties!

Cozy sweater dress..

Happy Monday, everyone!

I hope you’ve had a beautiful weekend, and that your week is off to a perfect start!

I am wearing one of the prettiest sweater dresses on the blog today. This is my favorite sweater dress that I have purchased, like ever! It’s super cozy and has the prettiest color combo- green, grey and black!

Sweater dresses are usually my favorite because they can easily be dressed up or down. Throw on some boots for day or pumps for the night and you’re all set. If you live in colder climates, you can definitely pair this with a trench coat and over the knee boots or with tights. I have  linked similar sweater dresses for you in the widget below!

Also I bought these patchwork boots back in October and they are still favorites of mine. They are so unique and they’re so much fun to wear and they  totally spice up any of your outfit.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi lovelies!

How is everyone doing? I hope your week starts on a good note. So, today’s outfit is one of my favorite holiday outfits. When it comes to a holiday dressing, a day-to-night outfit is a must. In fact, it’s a wardrobe essential any time of year!
A chic, not-too-fancy blouse that can be worn for day and then dressed up a bit for night saves time and allows you to be out and about from day time festivities to evening events without running home to change. This Vince Camuto blouse from Nordstrom is a perfect example of such a blouse.
This blouse is particularly perfect since it’s universally flattering and always classic. It’s stylish and elegant and can take you anywhere. I love it paired with a pencil skirt and classic pumps for day and then with a swing skirt along with either lace up heels or pumps, for the evening. I paired mine with this lovely versatile swing skirt from Who What Wear collection at Target.
My dangling pearl earrings from Zara deserve a mention since they make the perfect holiday earrings and are much more comfortable than you would think!
Enjoy and have a lovely week ahead!

Hi ladies,

I just love dressing up for the holidays (or really any occasion) and I don’t feel the need to spend a ton of money just to look fab. You can feel glam in a designer outfit like the one I’m wearing here from Ridhi Mehra for a fraction of the price, thanks to Indus Threads’s amazing selection of designer ethnic and fusion wear. Indus Threads is an online fashion rental platform featuring high end South Asian designers that provides access to runway looks and custom designs.

If you’re not familiar with the rental site, let me give you the simple rundown….first you peruse their collection of sarees, lehengas, salwar suits, anarkalis, dresses and jumpsuits. If you are unsure about what to wear for an event and size, utilize their free in-studio, phone or skype fitting and they will connect you with one of their fabulous stylists who will help you select. Each outfit also features customer reviews to help you decide.

Then select your time frame. They offer 4 days and 8 days rental service. If you need more days, just ask and they will figure something out. It’s best to choose a delivery date 1 or 2 days before the event so you have enough time to return if the outfit doesn’t work out. Your outfit will arrive perfectly laundered in a box and a pre-paid shipping label . And they even cover the cleaning upon return.

So, if you want to take away the stress of dress shopping, as well as the pain of spending a ton of money on a designer outfit you probably wouldn’t be able to wear again, I highly recommend the service!

Thank you for stopping by!
