Like an American

IMG_6749IMG_6737 IMG_6761 IMG_6785 IMG_6734

These past couple of weeks I have been crazy busy with school and I’m starting to reach my breaking point. Luckily, blogging outfits, spending time with friends and attempting to channel creative energy in what I am doing at the moment have helped me to stay focused.

I’ve had this denim American flag print vest from Forever 21 hanging in the back of my closet for probably over a year now but have worn it only maybe once or twice. I decided to give it a fair chance after feeling inspired by Lana Del Rey’s song “American.”

 What I’m wearing: Black crop top (under vest) Zara // Velvet circle skirt Urban Outfitters // Target booties // Bite lip color.

Summer Garden Party

Vintage Tracy Reese Top/ Nordstrom Trousers (from last winter)/ Zara Clutch/  Anthropologie Earrings/ Grandmother’s Vintage Gold Watch/ Aldo Heels.

Tonight I thought I’d put together a look for a “summer garden party.” I used some of my favorite pieces (and a new photo editor) to show what I came up with. Let me know what you think!

We’ve Got You Covered for ALL Your Upcoming Events!

Since my previous post about the event I attended and what I wore, I have received several requests asking for me to create more special event worthy outfits. This first option above is for the “Daring Fashionista,” in other words, the girl who wants to have all eyes on her. This gorgeous red chiffon dress looks great on pretty much every skin color and compliments many hair colors as well!

How to get this outfit: Red chiffon dress Urban Outfitters $109, Spike Earrings by Gemma Redux $172, Embroidered Leather clutch bag by Zara $89.90, Bangle Set from Forever 21 $8.80, Nail Varnish in electric lilac $14, Platform Pump $69.

This second option I’m calling “The Demure Hostess,” is the perfect look for the gal throwing the party. The eye catching dress says it all without trying too hard (not to mention it will compliment the champagne you’re serving perfectly 😉 The key to wearing a dress like this without looking too over the top is minimal jewelry and wisely chosen accessories.

Here’s how to get the look above: Rebecca Taylor sequined mini $395, Dior Nail Lacquer in vibrant raspberry $23, Kenneth Jay Lane Gold ring $125, Printed Canvas clutch $17, ALDO heels in Bone $80.

Are you going to an event where there’s a possibility that an ex might show up with his new gf? Then “The Ultimate Vixen” look is perfect for you! Not only will he be desperately sorry that you are no longer together, but new prospective suiters will be staring at you the whole night as well. This look is also perfect for a gal who just wants to look down right HOT (which there’s nothing wrong with). The key to this look (and best accessory for everyday) is CONFIDENCE. People (men and women) are drawn to it, if you are exuding with the fact that you know you are hot (without being cocky) it is irresistible to others around you. This look is a bit of Gaga meets 80s rock star and you have to be able to rock that tiny lace dress. I threw in the tough biker jacket on top to make it a bit more classy. As far as the jewelry goes, it’s okay to mix (when you look this hot) as long as layering bracelets have some similarities i.e: pyramids/studs.

How to get this Vixen look: Lace Dress $32, TOPSHOP Drape Biker jacket $140, Bing Bang Trinity Necklace $115, Bracelets both Forever21 $4.80 and $13.80, Sephora cream lipstick in classic bright red $12, Rebecca Minkoff Clutch $325, Spiked Peep-Toe Platforms $36.80.

GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR EVENTS! AND PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK! 🙂
