Instant Chic

Instant Chic

 

Hi Everyone! I hope you are doing well! I am at a stage in my life where my personal style is evolving. More and more I find myself drawn to an effortlessly chic esthetic. Below are a few of the items that I have found helpful in achieving that look.
1. Leather/Faux Leather Jacket- Oh leather jackets how I love thee! Let me count the ways: 1. they are slimming, 2. provide warmth, 3. create modesty, etc.  Best of all, a leather jacket has the ability to transform a ho-hum outfit into a chic one. I also love how it instantly adds a little edge to anything it is paired with. Be sure to look for a timeless leather jacket that is appropriate for your figure.
2. Sunglasses- Sunnies are another multi-purpose closet staple. They protect our eyes from the sun and those unsightly under eye bags. Sunglasses have always had a cool factor about them. My favorite styles are aviator and cat eye.
3. Red Lipstick- A bold blue based red lipstick can take your look from drab to fab in an instant. Paired with oversized sunnies is the easiest way to look chic.
4. Black Booties- Booties have the ability to add some edginess to an otherwise plain outfit. I prefer the open-toed version as they are perfect year round.
5. Winged Eyeliner-A winged eyeliner can take your makeup from pretty to chic. Now, if I could only master how to create the asme liner for both eyes.

La Vie En Rose

Date Night
Rose gold is quite possibly my favorite metal. I love that it is a vintage gold that has made a huge comeback. There is something very unique yet feminine about it. It is that femininity that inspired me to create this date night outfit inspiration. I purposely used dainty rose gold jewelry as a contrast to the other bold pieces. A rosy pink lip helps to pull the outfit together.

Ruffles are back! This season some designers took a feminine approach to ruffles while others took a bold/architectural one. As lovely as they are, ruffles aren’t always the most flattering. They can add bulk to places we do not need it.

 The outfit below is ideal for ladies with a large chest. The ruffled shorts help to balance the body resulting in the appearance of a hourglass figure. Pear shaped divas should try wearing ruffles towards the top of their bodies for a similar effect.
