Outfit of the Night: Jumpsuit, Don’t Jump Ship

June 20, 2016

For this Outfit of the Night, I went tropical chic for my company’s chartered yacht to the Catalina Wine Mixer. Just kidding! It was a good old-fashioned sunset cruise in Marina del Rey with my colleagues to celebrate the end of the school year. See more of this look after the jump!

Fancy Things Friday 

June 10, 2016

This Fancy Things Friday contains a fresh batch of swoon-inducing goods and wares. Check them out here:

1. Giddy up! These Knot A Cowgirl Faux Suede Booties are enough to make me want to do my best boot scootin’ boogie. Rock these pieces of fiesty foot candy with some skinny denim or a flirty skirt. (gojane.com)

2. My girl Melody Ehsani has done it yet again with these dazzling Eye in Eye Stud Earrings. Don’t fret! These evil eyes will keep you safe against the jealous glances that are sure to come your way. As a matter of fact, give the haters something to talk about by putting these bold earrings on display with your hair in a top knot. Boop! (shop.nylon.com)

3. How darling is this Unique Vintage 1950s High Waist Flamingo Circle Swing Skirt? I can’t even. Oh, the places you’ll go in this sweet skirt. Dressed up or down, this fun little number will have you feeling as free as a bird. (unique-vintage.com)

4. I’ve got just the thing for all you artsy types: this stunning Abstract Printed Pencil Skirt. A work of art, I know. Clearly, the designers at Forever 21 had a stroke of genius with this one. So many potential looks, so little time. But I can see myself pairing this piece with a crop top layered under a moto jacket with some leather booties, and, to throw things off a bit, a bright eye and a nude lip. (forever21.com)

5. I’m so here for this Over the Line Striped Romper, hook, line and sinker. The trifecta of beige, black and white make this striped beauty all the more stylish. And the plunging neckline steps up the sass. A hidden perk is the exposed back, perfect for ripping and running on a summer’s day (or night). (nastygal.com)

We get it. May grey is a very real thing. In an effort to keep your eyes on the sunshiny days that lie ahead, this Fancy Things Friday features some super-cute fun-in-the-sun essentials:

1. These Bali Slides from J.Crew are a Dusty Cypress shade that make me crave a desert romp. Think about it. Palm Springs when it’s 90 degrees out, and you’re lounging poolside with a refreshing drink in your hand. These sandals certainly fit (foot?) the bill for the quintessential summer sandal. (jcrew.com)

2. These Nude Slouch Bags are doubly debonair and functional. I see River Island is hip to my bag-within-a-bag swag, but these purses clearly work well as separates. Plus, the gold tone detailing adds a touch of sophistication. (riverisland.com)

3. Bring your A game to the workplace in this darling Great Gal in the Corner Office Top from (who else?) Modcloth, the foremost purveyor of all things cute and stylish. The pattern is interesting without going overboard, and the slight peplum makes me squeal with delight. (modcloth.com)

4. You gals know mustard is my jam! It’s perfect for every season and has a certain way of making my skin pop. That’s why I’m a huge fan of this Textured Sheath Dress. Dress it up or down. You know the routine! (forever21.com)

5. Doesn’t this boho-chic Ecote Fonda Striped Surplice Romper make you want to frolic? Well, at least that’s how it makes me feel! Whether it’s brunch or the beach, you’ll steal the spotlight in this extra sweet playsuit. (urbanoutfitters.com)

Get into an all-new batch of razzly-dazzly goods and wares in this week’s Fancy Things Friday:

1. Stop the presses! I’ve got to shout it from the rooftops how amazing this Rattle Tale Beige and Ivory Clutch from Lulu’s is! I’ve decided you just can’t go wrong with an envelope clutch. But this one is the envelope clutch to end all envelope clutches. So many things to swwon over: the snakeskin texture, the ever-so-subtle pop of gold, the hidden strap. (lulus.com)

2. “Ooh la la” and “oui oui” to these L’Éclatante Millefiori Derbies in Glitter from Bobbies Paris. Add some sunshine wherever you go with this sparkly numbers. You can’t help but smile looking at them. (bobbies.com)

3. I’ve got a sudden urge to tickle the ivories and recreate that iconic scene from “Big.” This darling Lazy Oaf Short Sleeved Shirt With Frill Hem in Piano Print is to blame. So many styling possibilities with this one, and it makes quite the statement. (asos.com)

4. You can’t tell from this photo, but there’s a wonderful surprise found on this Tie-Back Mini Dress in Blush. The bow tie back is too sweet. You know I love a good bow and cutout back. It’s also stunning in Light Olive. (forever21.com)

5. Leave it to Express to let us express ourselves. Check out this Express One Eleven Lipstick Graphic Tank, which really says it all. “If all else fails, put on bright red lipstick.” One of the tricks of the trade that always comes through. (express.com)

Get into this monochromatic batch of goods and wares in this week’s edition of Fancy Things Friday:

1. Ladies, we’re in the clear! These Akira Clear Ankle Strap Pump add a nice element of surprise to your typical, utilitarian black heel. Pair these pumps with your best freakum dress and get ready for a memorable night on the town. (tobi.com)

2. The Dream Noir Earrings from Miss Wax are a pop of pizzazz that I need in my life! Black, white and gold are my favorite color palette, b.t. dubs. (misswax.com)

3. Olive never looked so sweet! These Contemporary High-Waist Pants in olive make for a perfect “office by day, turn up by night” ensemble. Plus, the drawstring waist has a way of making one look pulled together. (forever21.com)

4. The Boutique Leah Polka Dot Tulle Midi Dress is a dream come true! A dress so me, I’m wondering if the designer was stalking my daydreams. Where do I begin? The polka dots I live for. The tulle provides great fun and movement. I can picture myself twirling on the dance floor in it. Woo hoo, Boohoo! You’ve done it again! (boohoo.com)

5. I love me a jumpsuit, this I’m sure you know about me by now. This Swank Us Later Tux Jumpsuit is no exception. It’s sleek and sophisticated. The double-breasted collar says “all business,” but the plunging neckline says, “Don’t forget about pleasure.” Ooooh, and those front vanity pocket flaps are a nice touch! (nastygal.com)

1. Snap! Crackle! Pop! And all the other forms of onomatopoeia because these Jadyn Sneakers in Black/White Crackle deserve all the sound effects. All of them. These kicks, courtesy of Circus by Sam Edelman, are all kinds of big-top fun. (circusbysamedelman.com)

2. That cool, refreshing drink! (Try it with your friends!) Shout out to P&C Poolside for thinking up the most exciting and ultra-specific pins to spice up my life. The latest on my radar is this Boba Tea Enamel Lapel Pin. I just wanna drink in all the awesomeness that is the delicious Tapioca ball-laced beverage. (www.pandcpoolside.bigcartel.com)

3. This New Look Denim Longline Tee is, in a word, perfect. The longer hem in the back is an added element of surprise, and the cuffed sleeves up the charm factor. Chambray all day! (asos.com)

4. What better way to ring in cardigan weather than with this Women’s Lapel Cardigan with Prints from Open Sky. I can see myself adding some pizzazz to my business casual ensemble or stepping out on the town with this fun piece. A great item for layering! (opensky.com)

5. This Classic Cable Knit Sweater makes the concept of a winter wonderland bearable–and rather stylish. The intricate cable-knit pattern will have people guessing if it came from Bloomingdales, but this can be our little secret. Once again, Forever 21 offers a sophisticated take on a staple piece (and for fewer pennies!). (forever21.com)
