It’s been a while since I did a fashion blog, so here goes. This Valentine’s annual dinner and dancing, the theme is “Sailing Through the Years”, a salute to all things nautical. Now, I’m not going to lie; I almost thought of buying some anime looking get up, like dressing up like Sailor Mars, but I would have stuck out like a buoy in the ocean. So, I decided to flirtatiously look around at the stores in the mall, and what do you know?! The nautical look has MADE A COMEBACK, folks. I mean, Anthro, GAP, Banana Rep., Black and White Market, etc.; there are stripes on stripes, navy blue all over the racks, as if Popeye threw up a whole can of nautical spinach. So, I thought of doing a blog homage to the naughty nautical look. Here are some dresses I would have chosen this year. Anchors away! Or you can go casual, and rock those yummy flared high waisted front pocket sailing pants… (which they are also selling in GAP) Then you’ve got to give it up for GAP for making things more apparent as they are by spelling it out in their shirts.

Fashion Crush of the Week: Gladiator and bling. Bling on the spring season, please. We’re over the snow.
So, holidays are upon us, from Thanksgiving, to Christmas, and New Years… With that said, that means family pictures, parties, events, concerts, get togethers, dinners, etc. So for those fashion conscious moms/dads who have those adorable cherubs we call daughters, I’ve compiled the cutest shoes of the season! Just a warning- the prices range from $5 to less than $100. I wanted to cover my bases in case people are on a budget or have some room to splurge. I also didn’t include designer brands, well, just because I feel these have just a little more unique style. I also didn’t include high end boutiques because I don’t think anyone would appreciate a pair of shoes for over $100. So on with the show! Braided Metallic Ankle Boots (Sale) $10.99 @ Old Navy These days, it’s all about the ankle boots. High boots are still cute, but if you’re opting out of the classic style this season, go for the more trendy ankle boot…and of course, a little glitter doesn’t hurt- esp. on these very neutral color that is great for more casual layered clothes. Metallic Boots $24.94 @ Old Navy Seriously love this. High top sneakers are definitely on […]
I love the big statement necklaces…even before they became a trend, but since it’s so popular these days, I’ve been looking for an alternative type of necklace for everyday use. Pave Rose Chain Fringe Pendant $36 @ Baublebar These days, I’m crushing on the lariat necklace, chunky or delicate, long or short, alone or layered. The possibilities are endless, but it stands out because of it’s length and fluid drape. Here are a couple of my favorites that I’ve seen online. Depending on your outfit, there are different kinds you can wear and how. You just need a little creativity. Mini Pearl Beaded Tassel Lariat $36 @ Baublebar Fete Fringe Lariat Necklace Gold $21 @ Shop Prima Donna Personalized 2 Initial Gold Lariat $39 @ Etsy Lilana Lariat Necklace $25 @ Nasty Gal
I recently soujourned to the fabric shop to buy some lace in use of altering some ripped up pieces of clothing from my daughters’ closet. Rips, holes can be covered beautifully by shapes of lace! But that’s another blog. The inspiration, however, is because of the influx of lace in today’s fashion, one I doubt will be departing any time soon. It’s worked its way back en mode, with even more beautiful twists and creativity involving embriodery! *SWOON* So, make sure to check your grandmother’s trunks in the attic, and discover old treasures from her lace. If you can’t, here are some of my picks, some key pieces. Jayleen Lace Dress Free People $250 Commemorative Dress Free People $168 Seaside Ceremony Dress Modcloth $168 Encaje Dress Anthropologie $150 Nishe Allover Lace Shift Dress Asos $159 ASOS Cupped Structured Dress In Lace ASOS $237 Floral Lace Dress LOFT $118 So, this is just a small sample…you know what I’m talking about. I didn’t included too many pictures, but these 3 stores alone have a great variety of lace dresses, withouth having a monopoly, so if you’re on the hunt, this is a good place to start.
Found these. Super cute. But the price, what body part do I not need to get a little money? So, these will go in my bin as one of those things I’ll never buy, but it could have been real. Little Bunny Shoe Shoe Flat Shoes by a European designer Minna Parikka. $274.99 Hop Couture Loafer These cute sophisticate shiny loafers go for $439.99! Same designer, same mindset and vision. But what makes it so romantic are the cursive handwriting inside the shoes. It’s like stepping into a cushion of sentiment.
I made this today to add to my ‘stacking bracelets’ … Gold stretch cross bracelet with bow accent. I actually had my eye on an MK one but it was just a straight bar. Plus, it was $65. So I decided to make my own. Fits all wrists because it’s stretchy. Like?
