All Tied Up

A little lace-up detail can add some interest and uniqueness to your everyday basics. This style can come in a variety of different  designs - lace-up tops, dresses, shoes, and pants. This captivating detail is great for a night out look but, also be just as great in a casual setting.

Style Tip:  Lace- up details are edgy and fun. Whatever your style is there are so many options, you are guaranteed to find your style. A lace-up dress with a plunging neckline is sexy for a night time look. Wear a peasant top with a lace-up detail for a boho vibe.

I've definitely joined the lace-up bandwagon.  I love that with a little lace-up detail like, the one on the side of this t-shirt, makes it 10 times more dynamic than a regular t-shirt. It's a small detail but, just the right detail to take your outfit to the next level. I let the details stand out by paring this t-shirt with jeans. I dressed up this outfit with my favorite OTK boots with more lace-up details in the back.

Tutu Love

The tutu is just another word for a tulle skirt. I prefer to say tutu. This skirt is fun to dress up or down. Some play down the tutu by pairing this girly skirt with a denim jacket others glam it up with an embellished top or faux-fur coat. I would usually make this tutu edgy with a graphic tee and motorcycle jacket but, I took a totally different approach.

Style Tip:  Tutus are very versatile. Wear them with a blazer for a more polished look. Dress it down with a tee or tank or create some drama by wearing  the full- length version.

I found this girly periwinkle blue tutu on clearance for only $4. What a major steal. Lauren Conrad has a cute collection at Kohl's. She also designs special Disney collections  like; The Minnie Mouse Rocks the Dots, Bambi Collection, and the Cinderella Collection which is where this skirt is from.

​I had fun dressing up this skirt.  This skirt creates a statement alone so I keep the rest of my look simple. I paired this skirt with a white crop top and a pearl peter pan collar necklace. Overall this outfit is chic and has a modern Cinderella vibe.

Wear It Over and Over Again

When I shop for clothes I always have it set on my mind to shop for things I can wear over and over again. I like things that are versatile. I'm always up for the challenge to wear those things completely different, almost recognizable. Black clothes are very versatile, you can wear over and over again. Another tip is buy staple pieces like trousers, a vest, and booties because I guarantee you'll wear these multiple times.

Style Tip: Create a monochromatic look by wearing separates of one color that have different textures and/or similar shades of that color for an overall tonal look.

You might have seen this vest, trousers, and booties before on my other posts. I have joined all these pieces together and created a monochromatic look. It's chic, very simple to put together and to replicate. The vest I wore as a top just by tying the belt from my trousers over my waist. I layered this long vest over some trousers and finished the look with high ankle booties.

Leather Everything

Gimme leather; leather tops, pants, jackets, shorts, skirts, and dresses- I want it all. Leather has become one of my favorite wardrobe staples. It's chic and sometimes intimidating but cool. It's also an easy transition piece to wear from winter to spring. I like mixing this lux fabric with other textures and fabrics. One of my favorite combinations is mixing a feminine dress like, a lace dress with a leather moto jacket. They are complete opposites but mix well together.

Style Tip:  If you're a leather newbie, start small. Try wearing leather as an accent like, a black blazer with a leather collar or a white tee with leather shoulder accents.

Skater skirts are usually girly and flirty but made from leather fabric the skirt is now tough and chic. I love the simplicity of the skirt and the edginess of the leather material. Skater skirts are also very flattering on every single body type.  They cinch at the waist and flare out on the bottom. I have to say they are one of my favorite skirts.

I kept my outfit simple by pairing the skirt with a graphic tee and put on my favorite booties from DSW. I love combining a short skirt with heeled booties because they give my legs some length. I finished the look with retro sunglasses, a dainty necklace, and a black and white striped wallet clutch.

Valentine’s Day

What better time to show you guys some Valentine's Day outfits then today since it's just around the corner. Do you know what you're going to wear? If you're not quite sure, I put together a simple yet attention grabbing look featuring clothes from Fashion to Figure. FTF is a chic and trendy store online and I love that they design for us curvy girls.

Style Tip: When wearing a loose top wear a fitted bottom. It creates a flattering silhouette. 

If you're  hanging out with your friends or planning on going out with your boyfriend this Valentine's Day, this outfit is perfect! This look is fun, sexy, and flirty all wrapped in one. I love how much movement this fringe top has. These jeans are the best! I think they were seriously made for me, they fit like a glove.  These OTK boots complete the look and add a sexy attitude to the overall outfit.  

I found this fringe top at Fashion to Figure but unfortunately they sold out. No worries, I got you covered. I went on the hunt and found 3 similar tops. The links are down below.
