Date Night Look

DSC_0062

I’m just going to be super honest here.  I’m a girly girl and I believe in girly looks for date night.  Skirts, heels, color, sparkles, etcetera are all things I gravitate toward.  It also must show off my girlish curves.  That’s why I added the belt to accentuate my waist.  The silk tank from my last look was the perfect piece to remix for this occasion.  Who doesn’t love the feel of silk on their skin?!  The moto jacket does help to even out all of this girly-ness by adding a little edge.  I mean, even a girly girl doesn’t want to turn out looking too innocent.  It’s date night after all!  Make sure to add a dash of sass.

Lust List Gift Guide: Teen Edition

The holidays are quickly approaching!  I know it seems early to be thinking about gifts but I like to shop early so I get better more thoughtful gifts without spending a fortune (i.e. – no last minute gift cards).  Each week I’m putting together a list of items for different people in our lives.  This week I’ll start with the teen ladies.  This girl is a budding fashionista with bold taste all her own.  Here are a few ideas she will love!

Teen Gift Guide

1) Diane von Furstenburg Animal Print Ear Buds – $25

2) A spa day for a teen facial.  Teaching good skin care techniques at a young age is important, especially for teens when acne can become an issue and they start wearing makeup.  A facial at your local spa is a fun way to spend time together and is a great unique gift!

3) A fun statement necklace from Jeweliq.  Everything here (like this Emerald Fan Bib) is under $25!

4)  Lulu’s Drawstring Handbag – $44

5) My Nail Polish Diary – $42

6) Fun Printed Tights like these Leopard Print ones from Nordstrom – $18 or 2 for $24

7) The Cheap Chica’s Guide to Style: Secrets to Shopping Cheap and Looking Chic – $17

8)  Lulu’s Pink and Orange Infinity Scarf – $16

Red is the New Black

red is the new black outfit

I’m in Washington to visit family and it’s gorgeous here!  These blue flowers in my boyfriend’s mom’s yard are so unique and amazing that I absolutely had to take pictures in front of them!  For my outfit today, red is my inspiration color.  Red is all over the runways for Fall this year and I’m so excited about  it!  I absolutely love it.  To make this look really pop, I paired my red silk blouse and suede booties with a pair of white jeans.

One tip for suede shoes and white jeans is to do a color test first to make sure you don’t rub off color onto your jeans!  Just take the edge of your shoe and gently rub the inside of your waist band (there’s usually a few layers of fabric there so it won’t show through).  If it rubs off, it’s not a match!

White T-Shirt And Jeans: Vol. 1

DSC04439

I’m a huge advocate for simplicity.  You’ll often see me in the classic white t-shirt and jeans combination (I titled this Volume 1 for a reason!) but I’ll add my style to it with some fun accessories.  Everything gets taken up a notch with leopard print heels (am I right?!) so these Calvin Kleins were perfect.  Choose a nice deep overdyed skinny jean with a little fading to keep it on the nicer side of things.  I like to reserve my light blue jeans for a boyfriend cut or shorts.  Otherwise I feel a little too… ’90s.

To top it all off, I pile on a bunch of fun jewelry!  I found this necklace at a vintage shop in Laguna Beach that has since closed down.  I was crushed to see it go!  What a gem…  Anyway, throw on a bunch of rings and that simple outfit now has some style!

One of my favorite vintage finds ever!  It makes every outfit better!
