Ted Baker Embroidered Suit

Can I just start by saying I’m nowhere near ready for the holidays! Wearing festive colors gets me in the spirit though. I decided to sport this Ted Baker embroidered suit I found last year on 6pm.com. I love the neon stitching – what do you think?

Wishing everyone a Happy Holiday Season!

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!

A Designer Look for Less Than $100

There is something about turtleneck tops that makes them very feminine. The best part is that you can either dress them up or down with the right accessories. I love the short-sleeve turtlenecks as they are a great piece for transitioning into fall. In addition, burgundy is a great color for the fall season. Luckily, the weather is still on the warm side in Vegas, so no capes and sweaters yet.

The highlight of this outfit as you can see is this cute vintage lady-like Ted Baker bag. I actually got it second-hand for only $40, and it is in a great condition. This was a true steal! Not to mention that I found these jeans on sale at H&M for only$10. All in all, this whole outfit including a designer bag, shoes and accessories (minus my watch) is less than $100!

Work & Play

As you know I’m a huge fan of versatile pieces – outfits you can dress up or down and wear for multiple different occasions. This black Asos culotte jumpsuit fits the description perfectly. Not to mention that it’s under $25. I’m often on the hunt for cute outfits that are work-appropriate, affordable and unique. Asos fitting can be tricky, but once you try a couple items you’ll have the sizing down. I scored this and a few other pieces during the Memorial Day Weekend sales. I can’t wait to share them with you! In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the styling of this outfit with my favorite Ted Baker floral pumps and Kate Spade quilted bag.

Styling a Basic T-shirt

When it comes to basics, I recommend investing in a nice pair of jeans and balancing your outfits out with affordable basics. For basic tops I rely on Target, H&M or Forever 21. These are plain tanks, T-shirts, long-sleeve shirts or turtlenecks. There’s no need to splurge on a basic top while you can style it in so many ways. In this post, I am offering a transition-to-fall look paired with a statement scarf that is my go-to accessory for the season.

A Peek Inside My Purse

I’ve always had a preference towards larger handbags although the rule states that petite women should carry smaller purses. I love having a few items handy and I never leave the house without them. That’s why a nice tote is a must-have in my closet! There will be plenty of space for a notebook or iPad, your daily makeup products, as well as a couple other random items. Now, take a look at the items I always like to have in my bag.

Aside from smart tech devices, I love big wallets that fit just about anything. This Ted Baker one below is my favorite wallet of all times! It’s beautiful and pretty unique, and has got me quite a few compliments every times I take it out. The next item – a French perfume, Diptyque Philosykos, is a signature smell I recently discovered. It is on the strong side, but I usually save it for special occasions. A bold lipstick is another beauty must-have. The best part is that with a bright lip you can get away with minimal makeup. Speaking of beauty, every girl knows that a nice pair of sky-high heels always stands out! That’s why you need to do your feet a favor and try Compeed, a new solution for relieving blister pain instantly. The Blister Cushions featured bellow have hydrocolloid technology that fits like a second skin and stays on all day long. Lastly, my selfie stick has got me covered at work events, social outings and family time.
