Chic of the Week

April Showers...in January. Spring is coming!...and actually it feels like its been here for awhile, with all the rain instead of snow. It has inspired my Chic of the Week...Chic Wellies! I have a soft spot for rain boots. They are so much fun and come in so many cute patterns and colors. Pair them with a simple trench coat and you are Spring ready :-)

Blazing the Trail

One of my favorite fashion pieces is the blazer. The blazer is very versatile and can make any outfit a little more chic. Layering pieces to vary up your wardrobe is a simple step to take, and adding a jacket or blazer is a perfect finishing touch. Blazers can dress up jeans, look sophisticated with dress pants, and make a dress a little more layered and chic. One of the reason I love to wear blazers is because its still a way to look professional while not losing your youth. Check out a couple of these looks.

So there are many ways you can blaze the trail with some lovely blazers. I love the different colored blazers that are out now, they put a punch of color in any outfit and are so much fun to pair with dress pants.
The one no-no with blazers, I must say, is shoulder pads. A little bit of one to give shape is alright, but lets not revisit the eighties with football size shoulder pads. :-)

Enjoy!

Its My Party..

Its that time of the year again! My birthday! and in the spirit of celebration, I am going to post a few of my favorite party dresses. If I could, I would wear a dress everyday and just because its my birthday, dresses is all I'm posting about :-) My favorite thing to do is the unexpected. If its your birthday, then you want to stand out, right? right. No matter what you do or who you are with on your special day, you want to look fabu..heres some ideas.

Lunch with the girls: stay flirty and fun with a cute sleeved dress. Its nice and modest and would be just as beautiful with a pair of flats:
Out for the dinner with someone special, stay classy and elegant:
Partying it up on the town? do a fun, funky one shoulder with some eye catching detail:

And there you are, three very different but equally cute dresses to try out on your birthday. I will post pics of my own party dress soon. Til then, <3 B

Chic of the Week

Ahh!! late again! oh well, here is my pick for chic of the week, and yes..its another heel. I can't help myself, I love my heels! Anyway, one of my favorite trends for spring is color blocking..and I love the color block heel. Its a fun and chic way to add that pop of color to your wardrobe. The best part is that alot of different retailers are mimicking this trend, check out the cute ones that are available at DSW for a steal at $45! Enjoy!

Very Vintage

One fashion obsession of mine is Vintage. My whole wedding was based around the style and feel of vintage and the best part about it? You can mix it up with modern elements and constantly change and play with your look. What I mostly try to do with my style is not overwhelm my look in one era of fashion. For example, I love the 1920s, 40s, and 50s so I may pull some inspiration of all or one ear into my outfit. Feather accessories and colorful tights are making a refurbished comeback from the 20s and so are the collared and printed dresses from the 40s and 50s, mix and match some of these pieces and you have a fresh en vogue look that is completely your own.<3
