Denim and Headwraps

I truly am a grandma at heart. I have always been called an old soul, or the little old lady from Pasadena-that my sister calls me. But this outfit truly take me to my inner old lady. why because this is something my mom or grandma would wear. My mom isn’t an old lady but she’s a grandma so she fits into that category!

IMG_5054

This outfit is not made for old women but just embraces that old ole 70’s vibes mixed with modern flare. Eva Mendes does a great job with embracing her culture, heritage and inspirations form her loved ones. I absolutely love this denim chambray ruffle skirt. It comes with a denim belt, and lime green and purple buttons down the front. I can’t get enough of this carmel colored crochet sleeveless top. It is so light weight and just goes perfectly with this skirt.

I topped this look off with my colorful head wrap from Bold looks and headwraps, a crochet side satchel and matching brown block heels.

This look is so simple and cute and can be worn anywhere.. I just may wear this to work this week :)!

The Colorful Giraffe

Hey Divas,

Random question, what is your favorite animal? Mine just so happens to be giraffes. I love how gracefully they walk, how tall they are, their wonderful spotted print and of course their bold eyes with those long eyelashes. I honestly believe that where us human got the idea of elongating mascara from!

IMG_5191

If you guessed that I was drawn to this dress because of the print. You are absolutely right. It looks like a colorful giraffe to me. I have been on the hunt for several maxi dresses and this one satisfied my fashion sweet tooth. This dress is from New York and Company the Eva Mendes line of course!

This maxi dress is great for many reason.

  • It’s long… if it wasn’t it wouldn’t be a maxi dress (duhh)
  • Very light material
  • Thin under lining,
  • Pockets
  • Awesome rope detailing around the waist and acts as straps
  • Multi color print

IMG_5208

You know my theme for this summer is in living color and this tops off this them. I will admit that this dress is extra extra long. I am 5’3 1/2 so I pulled out my 5″ JustFab purple fringe heels with this dress. I will most likely have this tailored so it’s not dragging on the floor. Topping this look off with my orange fringe purse and yellow beaded earring form JcPenny will definitely have heads turning. This dress is great for a hot summer day, week-ending, and of course a hot date. Take you pick!

Hey divas are you ready for some bbq, sun, family and friend fun? The real question is what will you be wearing this 4th of July? Well I and my blogger sister The Fab Five Fashionistas have collaborated to bring you some fashion inspiration. I had fun with this collaboration as we mixed pieces that we already had in our wardrobe! We often show you what’s new and on the racks for you to purchase however we figured it would be a great idea to show you that what’s already in your closet can be just as cute! Let me know which outfit idea you will be trying or what you will be wearing on the 4th!

IMG_5359

First up is me. I chose to stick with the traditional red white and blue colors.. as I believe we all did! As many of you know I struggle with having chill clothes in my wardrobe. I picked this cute red and white gingham flutter sleeve t-shirt up from Versona. I pulled out these 3′ blue and white striped shorts from Old Navy. If you have not shopped Old Navy’s shorts it’s a definite must! Every summer they have shorts on sale for $10. I am sure this 4th they will have a flash sale.

Yes it’s true I have a jumpsuit, dress, 2 piece polka dot outfit the only thing i’m missing now is a black and white polka dot skirt.. Ha I just might go and snag one. Today how would you style this two piece outfit from New York and Company. I have 2 options, however the options are endless!

Option 1: Red, black and white is always a classic look especially with polka dots! I simply paired my red Justfab lace up wedges along with this Kenneth Cole statement bag. Simple easy classic look. You can wear this to work, out on a date or simply out with the girls.

IMG_5081IMG_5085

Option 2: Hot pink always looks good with black and white.  Since we are living in color this summer why not go bright and bold. I pulled the hot pink from the shoes I am wearing exclusively from Justfab. I love 2 tone shoes that offer pops of color and prints. I thought this was a perfect match with this outfit.

What I love most about this 2 piece outfit is that you can always pair the top with a different pair of bottoms or the bottoms with a different top. you honestly can obtain so many great looks with this one outfit.

I love the little button detailing on the front along with the sweetheart neckline.Now that’s a bargain.

Living In Color

 

It’s Friyay, I am starting to learn not to live for Friday or the weekend but to live for each day and make it count. Life can be so much more enjoyable that way. Because I am living in color this summer I thought this super chill but colorful outfit is perfect for a Friday or weekend look.

I found this cotton grey tassel dress form Versona. Versona is a women’s boutique store that has trendy pieces, accessories, shoes, and much much more. If there is not one in your area they have an online store. Tassels and embroidery are trending right now and I couldn’t pass up this cute little number. It’s thick which is great for all seasons. I scored this dress for $24. Oh and let’s not forget it has pockets. Don’t you just love a dress with pockets? I sure do.

The truth is, my mind has been going crazy with new ideas.. I just can’t control myself. I am super creative and my mind will often race from A-Z and then from Z-A.  Excuse me if my outfits have been very colorful and different.. I will not apologize for my creativity. 🙂

How to find an outfit under $50

 

Many of you know I am a thrifty shopper and I almost never buy anything at full price. This includes shoes, asseccories, clothes…. I wish I could apply this to food lol cause lord knows I love to eat.

7DD4142B-273C-4D74-A952-8B27D7ED8A61

Althought I love to thrift shop I am always not able to get to the good ones as they are a bit further out from where I live. So instead TJMaxx, Marshall’s, Burlington will do the trick… just to name a few. These stores already have discounted prices. However when shopping at department and boutique stores, I look on the clearance racks and what’s on sale and if any coupons are available.

9F24428E-2E3F-4567-A152-4BFC65E0FE67

I purchased this outfit for $50. That even includes the purse! This soft chambray off th shoulder blouse was only $12. I love how this blouse has bell sleeves the cute cut out detailing and the stone wash that is scattered through the top. The pants were $15. Actually I saw the pants first, as I have been looking for some comfortable loose fitting jeans. Let me just say these pants are more than comfortable super soft and are great for an everyday or weekend look. Both pieces are from TJMaxx.

My coral and tan stitch purse is from Rack Room Shoes a few years ago. They were having a crazy clearance sale on purses which we’re down to $5. My earrings were a gift for my birthday. Tassels earrings are trending and you can find these almost anywhere today. I love cat eye glasses even my prescription glasses are cat eye. These sunnies are from TJMaxx and I snagged them for $7.

I saved the best for last. These lovely Jessica Simpson Espadrilles. The amazing patch work on the soft light blue denim. I love the cream ribbons that lace around the ankle. This finally touch simply completed this outfit. Oh yes these shoes were on clearance for $15. Check in the store as they are no longer available online.

Easy Outfit For The Everyday Fashionista

 

Hey divas, sometimes it’s hard to get up and go and always look good. Work, life, kids, daily tasks can take a toll on us. However just because you are tired, lazy or not in the mood doesn’t mean you have to throw on sweats flip flops and a wrap.. Don’t be that lady that everyone points at and think you woke up on the wrong side of the bed. INstead give them some Sasha fierce and say “I woke up like this..”

IMG_4789

When I am feeling lazy or in a rut I always pick my go to jumpsuit. I absolutely love jumpsuits. Why?

  1. You are all thing fab!
  2. jumpsuits can be dressed up or down depending on the style. I like to have a variety of casual, and dressy jumpsuits
  3. One stop outfit. it’s a complete look in one
  4. You are never under or over dressed for any occasion
  5. Try to find the loose fitting or the wide leg jumpsuits you will be able to be more versatile with this style. A tapered leg is fine to just be careful for what look you are going for!
  6. Helpful tip for your body type: If you are curvy, try to find jumpsuit that have a waist band, or tie. Something that will pull you in and show your figure. If you are petite like me with not many curves, I try to go for the same look, it gives me the illusion that I have something! Most jumpsuits accentuate the waist area which is awesome because most women want to create the hour glass shape!

IMG_4787

The jumpsuit I am wearing is from Shein official. You have heard me mention this online boutique before. SOme items can be hit or miss so pay attention to sizing, and since it is an asian based boutique sizing does run small. I choose this white light weight jumpsuit, because of the beautiful lace crochet detailing on the bust area. It has a cut out band around the midriff area just giving you enough peekaboo to be sexy. this jumpsuit comes with a shorts lining underneath which is great for those hot summer days. I paired this with my eyelet white wedges from JCPenney (these are so old but look new) and an all white clutch from Charming Charlie. Outfit made simple!

IMG_4793

Jumpsuits are so not new, more like reinvented from the past. They come in a variety of colors, prints, and styles. I recommend that everyone at least has to in their wardrobe. this is a must have spring essential.

IMG_4795

I love jumpsuits so much you will be seeing quite a few on this blog this summer! Let me know what are your favorite, colors and styles of jumpsuits you like.
