Polka Dots & Ruffles

Give me a polka dot skirt and ruffle top any day. I’m totally obsessed with this look! This combination has a little vintage, nautical vibe to it. This combo from Curvature Boutique has me feeling like a little modern pin up girl.  This skirt fits like a dream and the top is sassy and sexy.

Style Tip: Wearing a top with a v-shape design with a pencil skirt or skinny high-waist jeans creates a beautiful hourglass silhouette.

You can’t go wrong with polka dot print- it’s timeless. This skirt shows off my curves and is stretchy too! I love that this top has a lot of movement  but I do recommend to size up because I had to adjust my top sometimes so my bra wouldn’t show.  I let the outfit speak for itself so I kept  accessories simple and no jewelry. I finished the look with my favorite single strap heels and cat eye sunglasses for that retro element. Curling my hair and splinting on the side completed the look too.

Marciano Fall Launch

Marciano Fall Launch…

Yesterday I attended the launch of the Marciano Fall Collection at The Americana in Glendale.  The event had music, sweet treats, wine, and a gorgeous new collection.  The sweets were yummy and super cute, they matched the color palette of the fall collection.

I loved the collection. Usually, I see brands use a darker color palette for fall, I liked that Marciano had pops of colors like bright pinks and blues. I also saw a lot of whites. I fell in lust with this faux leather fringe skirt and this lovely blanket coat.




I recently found my dream jacket and at a steal! It’s a classic moto jacket from the MNG by Mango collection at JCPenny. I was anxious to wear it, so this event was a perfect opportunity. Paired with a sheer top and faux leather joggers I felt chic and cool. I finished the look with a cross over clutch and nude stacked-heel hybrids which are perfect for transitioning into fall.
