How to Rock a Scarf

Monday, October 22, 2012

Color blocking OOTD

Am I the only person that picks an accessory to wear for the day then coordinates an entire outfit around that accessory?! Backwards, I know, but believe it or not that's how I coordinate most of my outfits. I am an accessory queen!

Needless to say, today's outfit inspiration came from a must-wear accessory! I was running to a quick meeting and I didn't feel like flat ironing my hair, so I opted to wear a vintage scarf from my online boutique. This scarf is one of my personal DVD because it has soooo many colors to work with, making outfit possibilities endless.

I chose bright red skinny jeans from F21 paired with a heather grey sheer sweater I picked up from Burlington Coat Factory. I like the contrast of brights and neutrals in color blocking--it gives a sense of balance to the outfit. I added another level of color blocking with a solid cobalt blue purse from old navy.

My gold cage earrings are from Burlington, my bangle is from Authurs in Atlanta, Ga and my glasses are from a little shop in Chicago,IL.

How do you rock the color blocking trend?

Stop pressing the rewind button on your decisions! Live with the choices you made and decide within yourself that everything is for the betterment of YOU! :)

OOTN 10/11/12

I was invited to attend the Jose Cuervo Tradicional Mural Project in the artistic Wynwood area. If you are familiar with Wynwood in Miami, you will know its a hip scene full of roof to concrete paintings and murals, tons of artisy shops, galleries and the whimsical crowd of Miami. Having fallen into that crowd myself, I felt no reservation about pulling out a daring combination for this event.

I wore a solid black bodycon from target, which by the way is my go-to black dress and one of my favorite basics in my closet. I paired the dress with one of my favorite vintage blazers from my boutique and rocked hot pink skimmers from H&M. I kept the accessories basic with white and silver earrings and matching pandora's box and white framed glasses. My night was great and I had just as much fun attending the event as styling my outfit!

Don't sleep on Target Girl!

I have not been to Target in FOREVER! & I don't know why. I used to shop for clothes there all the time. Well anyway, I went the other day and found some of THEE CUTEST items for fall, and I'm super excited to share them with you.
So how adorable is this faux leopard print coat?! I love it because of the cut and quality! Its so easy to look cheap in leopard fur if it is not of good quality, but this hit the nail on the head! I also love the bishop collar and the blazer like setting of the buttons. Super stylish and fitted cut allows for you to rock fur without looking like an overstuffed Rick Ross LOL. I also LOVVVEDD these faux leather shorts! I had to leave them in the store because the inseam didnt allow for all the junk in my trunk, and as you can see, I'm rocking the toe (yuck) but they are cute for my less curvatious divas non-the-less. 

I #died when I saw this fan  ring! SO expensive looking to be at target.. don't sleep ladies!

I LOVE these snake print pointed pumps. Crazy story about these-I had these in my cart to buy ON CLEARANCE FOR ONLY $14, however they did not have a tag on them so I grabbed a smaller size to take to the register for the cashier to scan.  I gave her both pairs of shoes and she said to me "well you obviously want the ones without the tag on them right?" Yes..I said..Long story short, I got home and was very upset to find the wrong size in my bag. :( When I went back target the next morning to exchange them, they were all gone. Super sad :( but anyway, pointed toed shoes are a huge trend coming up for fall. I'll be posting more on this style in the coming weeks!

What have you ladies grabbed from Targ├ęt lately?

OOTN: Saturday Night FEVER

So I took myself out this weekend to a few events that I really was excited about. Fall is fastly approaching and Miami is known for being "in season" during winter, so there have been tons of events happening that I have been excited to attend! I knew I would be doing a ton of walking and attending a various scale of events, so I wanted to wear something that was fitting for the most casual and the most upscale venues I'd be attending.
Top: Burlington Coat Factory, Bottoms: Conway, Bag: Thrifted, Shoes: Chernin's Chicago, Ring& Arm Candy:Arthur's Atlanta, Earrings Rainbow
I paired my Zebra print sheer blouse by Gracia with Zebra striped skinny jeans for a fun look. I accessorized with a red and congac vintage Doony bag,  congac shooties, red lips and a red statement ring. I am a firm believer that you can find fashion anywhere, so with that being said, I shop EVERYWHERE! Don't limit yourself to brands or popular stores. Some of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe have come from rinky dink mom and pop stores or seemingly "cheap" stores. It's all in how you wear it!

I just love the way this blouse is cut!

I made my first BOB! 3/4 wig

So I have been wanting to try a bob for a while now, and I never had the courage to cut my hair or get the duby to actually make one. Well after having my long virgin hair in for a while I decided to give my little neck a break from all this heat and try it out. Let me tell you, this process was so simple, anyone can do it. This was my first shot at it and I think I did a pretty good job!
