HOW TO PULL OFF A POWERFUL, RED SUIT:
A lesson on how to stand out in a daring red suit, take a look!
I am all about a powerful, red suit these days, no matter what the occasion. A red suit is the perfect way to stand out at a business meeting or at an industry event, and shows that you have confidence. And…who doesn’t want to stand out in a crowd? This red blazer jacket is vintage from my mother, and I like the militant details… like the gold buttons and the stiff mini collar. The jacket and pants don’t actually go together, but they sure look like they do! Together they create the perfect, cherry red suit. I’m all about creating my own suiting by pairing different blazers and trousers together because they’re unique and one-of-a-kind.
HOW TO LAYER A CROP TOP OVER A BUTTON DOWN:
I’ve been really into layering unexpected pieces in my wardrobe, like putting a summer crop top over a button down. I’m currently digging crop tops and tanks layered over billowy blouses and button ups. The beauty of paring something cropped over something long, is that it creates a (false) illusion of length–which is great for someone who is short like me. Who knew a crop top over a button down could make me look and feel like Gisele?
As you know, I have a penchant for vintage. Most of my closet–and my favorite pieces–are vintage, including this blue and white stripe top from Neiman Marcus. It even has that super old school NM tag! What’s beautiful about this top is the movement. The top is actually separated into panels, with major slits on both sides, that creates a liquid-like movement when I walk. I layered a loose, black, cropped tank over it, and voila, instant length.
Keeping things uber casual today. I’m still all about those ruffles–even in itty bitty form as seen here on the collar of this H&M striped top. For this look, I went with easy, high-waisted jeans, a striped top and a leather moto… aka basics. The intrigue comes with the accessories. How unique are these gold slippers? I almost feel like a genie! They have the tiniest of kitten heels which makes them super comfy too. This vintage gucci bag has been in constant rotation as of late, and i like the way the gold heels and gucci print play off of each other. Shop my entire look below! And leave me a comment because I love hearing from you guys!
Just about everywhere you look these days, someone is in a slip dress. I have always been fond of this style, but honestly, never felt like I could pull it off. I love the barely there look of the Are You Am I dresses that come in crushed velvet and silk, but I need a little more coverage than that. I decided to slip into the style (see what I did there:) with a midi length, black, silk version. And, for a little more coverage, I layered a white tank underneath with ruffles on the front, which I let peek out above the V-neckline of the slip dress.
