Pre-Fall Colours: Taupe

Pre-Fall Colours: Taupe

Fashion week is upon us, and I am so excited to wear all my fall outfits. Which now comprise about half of my phone notes. However, it’s still super hot outside, so I wanted to introduce one of my Pre-Fall colours: taupe.

I’ve already seen a similar colour on the Cushnie et Ochos runway, and will probably continue to see it as spring rolls in. It’s interesting to see designers make the Spring 2018 looks mesh with what is currently in season. For us in LA, it’s very easy to wear the Spring 2018 outfits now, while it’s still warm, but in other places it’s getting colder and the clothes on show now won’t be worn for a long time. This was always a source of confusion for me, and I still feel like the industry can do better in this respect. A lot of designers are introducing ‘See Now Buy Now’ collections. Clothes that can be bought right off the catwalk. I think that’s a great idea.

So just to be clear, what I mean by pre-fall colours is a colour that can be worn NOW, before it’s the actual fall season. I’m very practical. I see people wearing fall outfits for the fall shows when it’s thirty degrees outside! I am not about that life. This taupe colour, along with khaki are two great pre-fall colours that can make a great transition into the all-black warm coats that are coming!

I like a good pink colour. This taupe is a great compromise between wearing pink and being an adult!

This outfit is not perfectly coordinated. It’s something I’ve been doing a lot lately, it just looks more interesting. Crop tops might be a little too cold as the weather changes, so now’s the perfect opportunity to wear them!

As you know, I love when things match in the tiniest ways. This D&G bag has a pink contour, which is a nice addition to the taupe outfit. These shoes have also been my getting a lot of wear. I love the thin straps, they look very minimal and sophisticated; a nice addition to leggings.

For jewelry I went with my new choker from Dannijo, and simple diamond earrings. Pre-fall colours usually call for silver accessories.

I hope you’re all having a great September!

Labor Day Outfit Ideas

Labor Day Outfit Ideas

Can you believe it’s almost September? It’s almost time for the all-white labor day parties. I am always on the hunt for a good all white outfit. It’s tough because white has to match perfectly to work. For this post I wanted to show off my labor (haha) over these four (and a half) Labor Day outfit ideas.

One — White Leggings

I’ve been trying to hunt down some good white leggings forever! I don’t like white jeans because they look a little dressed down in my opinion. White leggings remind me too much of pajamas. These white pants (Missguided, $25) are great because they look nicer, but they’re not the stuffy dress pants that seem to be the only other option out there.

Two — Lace Bustier

This is one of my favourite Labor Day outfit ideas. I was so excited to get this lace bustier from Victorias Secret ($50). And yes, I know it’s not technically a ‘shirt’ but I just read the weather statement and it will 35+ here in the coming week!

Three — White Dress

This dress is more on the casual side, because of the t-shirt fabric. However, the style, and pairing it with heels, makes it look immediately more fancy. In addition, the tulip hem and wrap waist are flattering on everybody! This is great as one of your labor day outfit ideas because it’s very light and breathable, but still looks nice enough for evening.

Four — Linen Shorts

Linen shorts and a backward tank, what could go wrong! I love linen shorts for summer. They’re the perfect thing to wear on those really hot days. A silk tank makes this outfit look nicer and more polished. Adding some heels, I think this look is perfect for an outdoor party!

Four and a half — The Column Dress

I have worn this dress a few times, here and here. The column dress is a great all white outfit for Labor Day. It looks very chic and clean. I didn’t want to shoot it again as there’s only so many ways it can be changed up, but its a great addition to the list of Labor Day outfit ideas!

 

Hope you all have a great holiday!

Resort LookBook 2018

Resort LookBook 2018

One of my favourite designer lines out this year is Marissa Webb’s Resort 2018. For this post, I wanted to create my own Resort lookbook, inspired by the outfits I saw from her collection.

resort lookbook 2018 Marissa webb leather mini ruffles floral suede khaki green

Ruffles, floral prints, and off shoulder stuff is all the rage for resort looks. Creating lookbooks has always been something I love, and I wanted to bring some inspiration to you as you choose your outfits! These five outfits encompass everything that I think is necessary when putting your resort outfits together.

Look 1

resort lookbook 2018 Marissa webb leather mini ruffles floral suede khaki green 6 resort lookbook 2018 Marissa webb leather mini ruffles floral suede khaki green 4

Off-shoulder tops, and Bardot tops paired with ruffle leather minis inspired this look. This rose top is great for spring, but offset by a leather mini it fits in with the resort lookbook mood. The floral embroidery on the skirt works perfectly with the applique roses.

Look 2

One of my favourite colours for any season is this khaki green. The Marissa Webb outfit I so lovingly copied also has the green top off the shoulder like this. It’s a cool and interesting way to ‘renew’ a button-down in your closet.

Look 3

As I mentioned earlier, the off shoulder ruffle sleeve tops are everywhere. This outfit is another perfect look for  the Resort lookbook, as it is a spring colour, but the suede look of the top makes this fit more with the season.

Look 4

No Resort lookbook is complete without a dress. I loved the red dress Marissa Webb had in her collection, so I wanted to add one to mine as well. By adding a tie belt I was able to make this dress more ‘ruffly’ than it was. I love that this continues to be a trend.

Look 5

Suede pants are another item perfect for a Resort lookbook. This outfit collection is all about bridging the gap between summer and fall. Kind of a group of outfits you can take on vacay with you. Suede pants, especially these faux ones, are great because they are a fall staple. The floral print and ruffles of the tank still hint back to spring and summer. Chic suede flats and heels are a great way to wrap up all these outfits.

I hope you guys enjoyed my Resort Lookbook and it has inspired some of your outfits!

Summer Beach Vibes

Summer Beach Vibes

You guys might be surprised how I look so pale. Well, Living in Southern California, I do try to avoid the sun as much as possible, because it shines all — year — long #qualityproblems. Staying out of the sun is smart, but that doesn’t mean we can’t channel some summer beach vibes with our outfit!

This look is yet another designer imitation, this time from Michael Kors.

What do you think? Did I nail it?

 

I think the Michael Kors look is actually a dress, but the way I put together my skirt and top is also reminiscent of a dress. Both looks send a lot of summer beach vibes while still maintaining class and style.

This top is yet another one of the Missguided crop tops I have been obsessed with. They’re just so easy to wear with anything! The Michael Kors look sends those summer beach vibes because the top looks like a bikini top. So I tried to make mine look the same. And yes, I’m wearing a bra under it because it’s got kind of a weird shape to it. It just looks better this way.

It’s amazing how a long black skirt can still look very summery. The asymmetrical slit is nice, it adds a vacation feel to this look. Helmut Lang is a great designer for unique and interesting stuff.

The shoes really add to the summer beach vibes. The cross strap makes them perfect for this weather. The bag I have is more structured, but it’s still a great look to add to your resort/vacation wardrobe.

The belt is also inspired by the Michael Kors outfit. I just wanted something to make the all black stand out a little.

I’ve never had such a hard time finding good hoop earrings! Anything from nice jewelers was too small, and all the less expensive versions were huge! Here are my earrings from Missguided ($9)

 

I hope this outfit sent you some summer beach vibes! Happy Monday!

Designer Imitations — Proenza Schouler

Designer Imitation — Proenza Schouler

As you might already know, I love doing designer imitation with my own clothes. Like my Burberry post, this time I wanted to copy Proenza Schouler’s Spring 2018 look.

proenza schouler designer imitation white ruffle top spring summer 2018 2017 flowers pink 2

I loved the all white looks for summer, and this designer imitation is supposed to look like this outfit.

proenza schouler designer imitation white ruffle top spring summer 2018 2017 flowers pink 9

I realize they’re very different, but the point of a designer imitation, in my opinion is not to copy the look exactly, but to give your ‘inspired’ version of the outfit. The ruffles on the top were what stuck out to me, and I knew just the top to recreate it. I think the model is also wearing a skirt and black flats. What I went with was white tuxedo pants and my red fringe sandals to match my lipstick.

Get The Look

This top is from a few years ago, but ruffles are back this season (or I think every season for the summer), so I brought it back out. The Proenza look has the black boustier underneath the top, so I just wore black lingerie. In person, you can see it better through the shirt. I think it just adds a bit of colour to the all white.

I’m always happy to wear these pants. They’re standard tuxedo pants with the satin belt and stripe down the side. It’s good to have one of these in your wardrobe as they can be dressed up easily.

I also made an exception to this designer imitation with jewelry. In the original look, she’s wearing glass bangles, but I decided on plain gold bracelets. The glass gives this outfit some simplicity, and my choice of bracelet confirms that as well. My bag is a nod to Alexander McQueen, another designer imitation ;)

The shoes are also different in my look. I wanted to match the Ruby Woo lipstick (MAC, $17.50), so I wore my red sandals. Also, I’m too short to wear flats with these pants!

Do you guys think I did a good job or what??

Sorry I’ve been MIA for a while, I was working four twelve-hour shifts back to back! So I was way too tired to post anything, but I wanted to get this shades of pink post out. It’s really hot these days, and only going to get hotter, so I need an outfit that looks good and works in the heat.

I love this outfit for a night out, but I think with a lower heel it would work in the day time. The crop top is my favourite for the summer, and it works well with a high waist skirt.

This skirt is very versatile, and I love that it can look fancy. It doesn’t match perfectly with the shirt, but the different shades of pink still make it look like it could be a set.

My sorority colours were pink and green, so it was pretty cool to put together this outfit and use the colours without looking too costume-y. I only wish I could get away with these heels while at university!

I love this Zara bag ($49.90), it is real leather, and the perfect shape that’s in style right now. The details are amazing too. I talked more about it in my Zara haul video.

I felt like these shades of pink called for silver jewelry. This Dannijo choker is awesome! I never had anything from these designers before and I’m so glad I finally got this. It’s so pretty, and I love how it’s not a super high on the neck type of necklace.

 

I hope you’re all having a great weekend!

One Shirt Five Ways

What To Wear: One Shirt Five Ways

As you may have noticed, my favourite thing in life is something that serves multiple purposes. Here’s a weird secret: I like packing. And when I’m packing, I love finding an article of clothing that can work many different ways. So without further ado, here is What To Wear: One Shirt Five Ways.

as a dress (kind of)

one shirt five ways vince button down versatile how to wear 4 one shirt five ways vince button down versatile how to wear 9

So this is a great outfit I would wear constantly this summer. It’s cool, light, and I love the black lingerie peeking out. I like choosing a longer shirt because it would work great for this purpose.

as a shirt (duh)

one shirt five ways vince button down versatile how to wear 5 one shirt five ways vince button down versatile

You might be surprised by how big of a difference it can make leaving your shirt tucked out. Buttoning it up or down also changes the whole look. This is somewhat work-appropriate, maybe with a longer skirt or pants.

tied at the waist

This is another favourite outfit of mine you might remember from the wardrobe cluster post. This is a great way to take an outfit and change it as the day progresses. Just wear the shirt buttoned up, and then unbutton and tie at the waist to change your look without any work!

as a jacket

one shirt five ways vince button down versatile how to wear one shirt five ways vince button down versatile how to wear 6

It seems insane right now to even think about putting a jacket on, but it might be a good idea to grab something light to wear at night. Wearing your button-down over a crop top and skirt makes this outfit look more conservative, while still summery. When I first realized I can wear button-downs as jackets, it was like a revelation. It’s a perfect summer coat!

 

off the shoulder

This outfit is perfect to wear out at night. This is a classic day-to-night option. Wear the button-down to work, and then just pull it off the shoulder for the evening! I’m wearing it with shorts, but this would work with any bottom you have on during the day.

These are really unique ways to wear one shirt five ways. It works best with a longer button-down, that has a bit of stretch. Pair it with some staples and you are good to go! Check these out!

Spanish Revival

Spanish Revival

I really like the ruffle sleeve and skirt hems I’ve been seeing around. It reminds of something you’d dance flamenco in. And it’s a great summer look, so I thought I’d go with a little spanish revival for today’s post.

spanish revival bardot top missguided dvf skirt aquazzura shoe guitar zara bag 4

What I love about this whole outfit is that the DVF skirt is both a dress and a skirt. Obviously, I love when clothes can function as both, so I’m really happy with it. Incidentally, it ended up being the perfect match for this top, which is also pretty cool.

Get The Look

I was looking for a ruffle crop top that was a little smaller than this one (Missguided, $19), but it worked out really well. It’s also looser, which would be great for some of my other outfits. The drop shoulder is also a great addition to the Spanish revival look!

The DVF skirt is also perfect in this spanish revival get-up, it just looks like a tango or flamenco costume skirt. The front ruffles are really flattering on anyone, as they make our legs look longer.

I love when everything matches. And this Zara bag (Zara, $55.90) is lined with red, the perfect match for my shoes and lipstick. It’s just a nice way to round off the whole outfit, and break away from all black.

Keep the jewelry super simple, so as not to take away from this ‘going out dancing’ look.

Bootay Bag Review!

If you’re on social media, you’ve definitely seen the Bootay Bag flat lays. Well I have been so lucky lately, and got one of these bags to try!

This is technically not a sponsored post, if you’ve read this blog for a while, you know I never promote things unless I believe in them. Bootay bag is a great company with a unique concept. It’s a subscription service for panties! But that’s not all, they give back one dollar to the melanoma foundation every time you use the hashtag #undermatters.

What I Got This Month

So  I am absolutely hooked on getting two new pairs of undies every month for just twelve bucks! You can choose to get only thongs, no thongs, or mix it up. I got a mix of both.

These panties are amazing quality, and you can’t find a better price. Even forever21 lingerie is more expensive.

One of my biggest pet peeves about underwear is how it digs into my butt and gives me that double butt cheek situation whenever I wear literally anything. Not the case with the Bootay Bag panties! They are so soft and comfy I could wear them all day. Which technically is what you’re supposed to do when it comes to underwear, but you know me, I’m a rule breaker :PP

What To Wear: Rooftop

What To Wear: Rooftop

So now that it’s summer, rooftop parties and gatherings, whether day or night, are all the rage. So for today’s post, I bring you What To Wear: Rooftop edition.

what to wear rooftop missguided yellow ruffle maxi dress ruffle sleeves 6

You might remember this dress from my Missguided haul video, and in that you can see it a little bit more in motion. This is a perfect choice for what to wear: rooftop style. The ruffle sleeves are totally in style now, and the colour is just right for summer. And you can even see clearly the stain on the front (and back) that was there when I got this dress! Lovely. Ruffle sleeve dress (Missguided, $51).

Get The Look

Hopefully your dress won’t have the stains, and it’s just a one-off. I decided to keep mine because I really liked the sleeves and the versatility of them.  what to wear rooftop missguided yellow ruffle maxi dress ruffle sleeves 5what to wear rooftop missguided yellow ruffle maxi dress ruffle sleeves 3

They’re just a dropped shoulder sleeve but there’s also a loop for the wrist. That way the sleeves look more like a flamenco costume, also perfect if you want to drop it at the rooftop party!

what to wear rooftop missguided yellow ruffle maxi dress ruffle sleeves 2 what to wear rooftop missguided yellow ruffle maxi dress ruffle sleeves 7

As I mentioned in my video, this dress was way too long for me, which I expected to happen. So I had to wear some really high heels to avoid falling.

what to wear rooftop missguided yellow ruffle maxi dress ruffle sleeves 5 what to wear rooftop missguided yellow ruffle maxi dress ruffle sleeves 4

I do love that back though! Minus the stain of course.

I added some simple gold rings as my jewelry. I think for this dress less is more, so the simpler we keep it the better.

 

I hope you enjoyed this What To Wear: Rooftop outfit, and I plan to do more ‘what to wear’ posts in the future!
