‘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. 🙂

How do y0u like to style your OTK boots?

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 ❤

When In Doubt…

When in doubt, go with red! I always hear that about lipstick, but why not about an outfit?

I personally am not a huge fan of red although there is something about the color that makes you feel more confident and sexy. I recently found this bell-sleeved shirt at Nordstrom Rack, which is less than $30. At first, I thought it was a little pretentious but now I realize that it’s actually quite wearable. You can style any similar top like this with white pants, skinny jeans, pencil skirt or even over a bodycon dress. I guarantee you will love all of these looks.

Here, I am wearing these Res jeans I got at Nasty Gal last year. They are still available here for only $53 and they fit great. Finally, I am relying on my vintage Ted Baker bag to complete the outfit and voila!

Embroidery – Another Trend Making a Comeback

Embroidery is making a comeback this year. I remember I had my first embroidered jeans, also from Zara, when I was a teenager. I loved them so much, and I’m happy that the trend is back again! Next to velvet, suede and tulle this is another favorite of mine. From sweatshirts to blouses, denim and even footwear and handbags – embroidery will for sure make any outfit stand out and will give it that unique flare. Not to mention that an embroidered piece can be dressed up or down depending on your style or the occasion, of course. Today I’m featuring a semi-casual look you could wear to a Sunday brunch or even a date night. The jeans have lots of detail, so you don’t need to rely on shiny accessories to complete the entire look.

Enjoy!

Fall’s Most Popular Fabrics

Suede and velvet are two really popular trends this fall. From head to toe, you can find these fabrics in dresses, jackets, handbags, shoes and even jewelry. I scored these Zara velvet booties only for about $45 in Mexico City. I love the style because they can give your outfit that polished look! The suede dress is from last fall’s Asos collection but it’s still quite on trend. What I love about it is that I can wear the dress by itself to a party or for an evening outing. For a daytime look I can pair it with just about any top. A turtleneck underneath makes a great fall or wintertime outfit as well.

I hope this gives you some inspiration for your fall styling. Enjoy!
