I entered the little bold dress challenge; I love black and gold! It just looks so luxe! This is a sleek look based on the black and gold.
This is my Urban Oasis look for 2012. HGTV is hosting this beautiful condo. I am going for comfort; chick; elegance. Oh my can it be done! OF COURSE DARLING! I just make it happen with the easy breezy shirt dress I am comfy and sexy at the same time. The color makes it stand out and gives a miami vibe. Add on elegant accessories with some Vince Camuto sandals and I have achieved my look. I am ready to go and celebrate my victory!
I used the skirt as a neutral color and decided I didn't want to take away from the skirt, but I didn't want it to be too dressy. The navy blue and orange are unexpected pops of color that reflect a setting sun. The length of the skirt goes good with an ankle cuff so I decided to pair the two.
I am sooo loving this combo for the remainder of summer. Although I may not be able to pull off every jumpsuit; these things are versatile!! You can of course mix the jumpsuit with flats or stilettos, but I think this is much more classic. I guess the Most Beautiful Woman in the world agrees!
When I saw those shades..I immediately envisioned a sophisticated tropical city. What better place than St. Tropez?! The Gucci shades scream urban sophistication, with a tropical twist. The wood bangles are there to just pile on..yes I have two sets! I of course interpreted the beach sun,sand and water.
YES...I did it again!!! But this is a much more affordable option!
I believe this is such a classic color combination! I love it!! It is such a fresh spin on a Red dress. The Brian Atwood shoes are such a cool combination...so they inspired me to keep the theme going into the accessories!
I love this room...I got inspiration from the room so .I chose the dress to represent the leaves and the white of the room. The coral matches the throw pillow. I wanted to add some black and white to match the throw pillow on the couch.
To me being daring is about choosing bold accessories. I love RED as a secondary color. It adds sophistication and it draws the eyes in. I didn't want to distract from the beautiful Phillip Lim jacket so I downplayed the outfit, but each piece is DARING in its own right!
I didn't get a chance to go into depth about Peplums. I would just like to express. THEY ARE SO VERSATILE!! I am going to prove it here. To me THRIFT is a virtue! So this is just a sampling of how we can SAVE but still be fab. The look I'm creating is a White Peplum with a Black Sandal and a pop of color at the bag level. (As always I use a clutch a minor obsession lol) CAN YOU GUESS WHICH IS HI and WHICH is Lo? Hope you enjoy!
