A Black and White Stripe Kinda Night! : Memo 011

The Subject: Stripped Knit Dress

Most women are deathly afraid of wearing stripes… Stripes are known to make a lot of women look wider then what they actually are… But the key is the right colors, and the correct fit! Stripes and I have a love hate relationship. Some days I think they make me look super wide and in other instances I think stripes make me look more proportioned. It’s all about how wide the stripes actually are, and breaking them up with either another pop of color, or a belt to synch the waist! Never be afraid to try something scary, and we all know stripes can be scary…

The bolder the look the bolder you feel!

I chose this black and white stripped number because nothing is more basic, yet, easier to play around with than black and white…

Have fun with stripes!!

Also adding an additional neutral color to the situation helps break up what seems to be a never-ending pattern of black and white. Pairing this knit dress with heather gray tights gives the look an edgier feel, and the harness belt didn’t hurt either. I wanted to try something different with my new favorite accessory… So I figured lets wear it a different way! Play around with your accessories! You’ll discover entirely new looks by simply wearing something differently than what you’d normally do!

I love this look because it’s transitional. You can pair this dress with a nice blazer for work, and later that evening remove that blazer to head out to dinner with girlfriends!! Every item you own should be chic enough for the day, and just as fabulous for the evening!

Great transitional look, from day to night!

Happy Stripping!

Shopping for the perfect vintage piece is really an art. You have to know what you like and what to look out for. I never go into a vintage shop blind, because it can become overwhelming. So make sure you have a vision of what look you’re trying to achieve prior to making the trip. For me, vintage shopping is all about finding the “unicorn” pieces if you will. My goal is always to find the high-end designer pieces that will forever be classic, for dirt cheap! This skirt was my unicorn! Vintage Givenchy for $40! Now that was a dream come true! So make sure you keep your eyes peeled for those strong pieces to help build your wardrobe!

Now because the skirt is cream, it is much easier to play around with looks and ideas.. And yes ladies, it’s perfectly ok to wear cream year round, trust me! Just make sure it’s appropriate for the season! With this look I wanted to keep a vintage feel, just with a modern twist. Blazers are always a great start! And don’t be afraid of patterned hosiery! It’s so much fun to wear a funky pair of tights in the fall!

Girl Gone WILD!! : Memo 09

The Subject: The Skirt

So this fall has brought out my wild side… Well… Not really…Ok… Maybe a little…LOL

I’ve cut my hair into a fun BOB, for starters, and have been in love with all things exotic…
From the prints of my shirts, exotic skinned shoes and bags, and even my jewelry choices. I’ve always been a fan of a great feather earring, or a great animal skin cuff, so this season has been no exception! And of course no autumn season is complete without the perfect boot!

This skirt was a must have!! ASOS is the perfect place to find an amazing piece on any budget to bring together any look… The thing I love most about this skirt is, it’s a conversation piece!! People will always stop and say, “Does your skirt say wild?” LOL… Now that is what I call commanding attention without having to say a word!
