Velvet and Pleats

I’ve always loved the vintage vibe pleated skirts have. They look so chic if only they fit right! Being so short, I’ve never been able to find a pleated skirt that creates a flattering silhouette on my frame. That’s why when I found these pleated pants at Bershka in Mexico City, I immediately fell in love. Not to mention the rich color and gorgeous fabric. At first, I thought they would be hard to style, but once I got them in my closet I realized that they can be worn in so many ways.  I would love to wear them to a night out paired with my favorite Ted Baker stilettos and a nice blouse. For a day at the office, a white button-down and a pair of squared heel pumps will do. The possibilities are endless…

What is the one statement piece you love wearing lately?

Styling a Bomber Jacket

It’s only February and it’s already looking like spring in Las Vegas! I’m ready to celebrate warmer weather with thinner fabrics, brighter colors and better yet – floral prints.

To be honest I haven’t been a huge fan of the bomber jacket trend. It is quite bulky, which isn’t very flattering especially if you’re short like me. However, the silky fabric and floral embroidery of this jacket I recently found on Gilt got me! Not to mention the 40% extra I got on it, and that’s after sale. I couldn’t pass it up after all.

Silk looks great with velvet, so I hope to pair this jacket with velvet dresses or pants. For s more casual look, I would opt for a pair of white skinny jeans or a flared denim.

Styling Stripes

Hi loves!

Here I am styling another outfit that I can rock from the office to a happy hour or a date night. I’m obsessed with these AMI Clubwear velvet booties lately. The color is gorgeous, and I can wear them with pretty much anything from dresses to leggings and jeans. I scored this Zara striped dress from last year’s holiday sale. You’d think stripes are hard to pull off, but again it depends how you wear them. I’m short, so I try to avoid thick horizontal stripes. I love the colors of this dress, and the bodycon fit creates a nice silhouette.

How do you like to wear stripes?

‘Blushing’ in Velvet With AMI Clubwear

Velvet is here to stay, and, so are lace-up pieces!

I have always been a big fan of versatile outfits – anything I could wear day to night is a winner in my closet. This cute outfit by AMI Clubwear fits the description perfectly. This lace-up sweater goes a long way. Styled with a pencil skirt and a pair of nice heels would make a great office look, while a patterned pair of tights will give it the sass for a night out. Regardless of your style, AMI Clubwear has plenty of other similar options available at very affordable prices. Classic little black dress, sparkly sequins, and current trends – you name it. Whether you prefer long or short, light or dark, I’m sure you’ll find the right look for you.

I have been absolutely obsessed with the velvet trend since this past fall. These velvet booties are to die for, not to mention they are only $32.50. The color and the shape of the heel are what makes them unique and different than most brands out there.

I hope this look gives you some inspiration for your day to night looks! Cheers ❤

Folk Motives and Embroidery Trends

My husband made me do it! Yes, he not only takes pride in taking my photos, but he picked this shirt for me.

I already talked about embroidery trends here, but there is something different about this top. The folk element of the embroidery along with the A-line cut make it that one-of-a-kind piece you need in your closet. Brace yourselves with the Zara Winter Sale currently going on, you can score this shirt for less than $40 here. Styled simply with a pair of jeans or a legging, you don’t even need any special accessories. I love the pairing with these Steve Madden OTK boots (I got last year on Zappos.com), but a pair of clean stilettos will make the look even more elegant.

Happy Holidays! xoxo, ❤

Winter in Vegas

Gotta love winter in Las Vegas – no coat, no hassle! We tend to get cooler temps every now and then during the winter months, but we are fortunate with a mild season for the most part. That is why instead of investing in a pricey winter coat, I rely on several cute ponchos and capes to get through the season.

I purchased this fringed poncho last year from Goodnight Macaroon, and it’s still available here for less than $50. I love the colors, and the fringe detail is all it takes to make your outfit stand out. Regardless of the poor reviews of the site, I had a good experience and was quite surprised with the nice quality. In fact, you can browse more cute sweaters here and use XMAS40 for an extra 40% off storewide until Dec. 23.

On another note, these Sam Edelman Over the knee boots are probably one of the most unique pairs of shoes I own – not so much because of the style but because of the color and texture. They are also a last-year buy from Zappos.com. The compliments I receive every time I wear them make the splurge worth it. 🙂

Holiday Ready

Going short just in time for the holidays! I haven’t rocked short hair in a few years, but now that I finally found an awesome hairstylist in Las Vegas (@hairbypinkie), I’m ready to experiment again. I’m excited to have an easier styling process at home and get my hair ready much faster than before.

On another note, I’ve been obsessed with these cute mirror sunglasses I found on FlashFrames. In fact, you can find similar styles here. FlashFrames will let you upload a photo of your dream glasses, and find you a similar frame just for a fraction of the price. You know I’m all about saving and finding a good deal on my outfits and accessories, so I couldn’t pass it up. You should definitely try it and see for yourself.

In the meantime, wishing you all a bright and joyful holiday season!

Xoxo ❤
