Plum Peplum

plum peplum peggy kolliasDo you ever go window shopping with no intention of buying something just to browse for inspiration and then stumble upon a magical dress for the right price? Well, that’s just what happened with this plum peplum dress which was from Eva Longoria’s Limited collection. It was only $30 because the store was closing, so it’s unfortunate that it closed, but I’m lucky that I found it 🙂 It really is a magical dress because once I’m zipped up, it hugs everything in the right place and the perfect amount. I never wear body forming dresses, but I decided to take a fashion risk with this one and it worked in my favor.

For a brief moment, it was safe to wear this dress with no tights, but it’s back to wearing tights. And since it’s since technically winter, I wore a moto leather jacket to make the dress a bit more funky. I really like the side asymmetrical peplum of this dress because usually peplum goes all around the waist and this one is different, which I like. I also can’t stop wearing these ZARA heels. For their height, they’re actually quite comfortable and basically match my entire winter wardrobe.

On another note, I have a fun girls’ night dinner planned tonight (maybe I’ll wear this ‘lil number again) and I can’t wait! It’s basically the only thing getting me through this dreary rainy day…

Fall Florals

windblown fall floral dressI’m OBSESSED with this Closet London fall florals print dress! I have a confession.. I’ve worn it the past two weekends because I just can’t get over how pretty, delicate and feminine the dress is. It fits perfectly in all the right places and makes me feel very girly 🙂 I also love how it’s from London and this location we shot at makes me feel like I was in a totally different place (I still love you, Chicago). AND the colors. WOW. I haven’t seen such vibrant colors in a long time and this dress definitely is unique. Pairing it with a leather moto jacket and some super fun booties, give the look a more edgier look, but I love the contrast. Last week I wore it with some cute nude heels, sans tights. It’s definitely ready to keep on rocking’ the rest of the season, so I apologize in advance if you constantly see me in it, but I don’t think that’s a bad thing 😉standing in a fall floral print dress with oversize black sunglasses looking to the side in a fall floral dress and black moto jacket laughing and sitting in front of blue fountain at a temple twirling in a fall floral print dress and being really happy gazing to the side sitting in a blue and pint floral print dresssunset in a floral print dress walking baps temple view up beautiful scenery of a templeCloset London c/o: Dress // Hue: Tights // Shoemint: Shoes (option) // Marc Jacobs: Sunglasses (option) // Kate Spade: Earrings (option) // Gap: Jacket (option)

Fall 2016 Must Haves

standard September 14, 2016 Leave a response

fall-2016-must-haves-5Fall 2016 is quickly approaching and to prepare for the season (even though I don’t want it to come) I’ve made a list of some must haves. A good leather jacket (options) and leather handbag (options) are great pieces for your wardrobe. I can’t even tell you how old this leather moto jacket is because I’ve had it for so long! Although it might be a splurge for a leather jacket and handbag, they’re really an investment and you’ll get a lot of wear out of them.

A great fitting pair of jeans and booties are also fall musts. I love wearing a classic pair Levi’s and just a simple tee – effortless and comfortable. The temperature is still hot out, so I opted for open toes booties today.

What are some items on your fall 2016 must have list? I’d love to hear your suggestions in the comment section. fall-2016-must-haves-2fall-2016-must-haves-3fall-2016-must-haves-4fall-2016-must-haves-6fall-2016-must-haves-1COACH c/o: Handbag // Gap: Jacket (option) // Levi’s: Jeans (option) // Nine West c/o: Shoes // LOFT: Sunglasses // Kate Spade: Earrings // White Tee (option) // Hermes: Bracelet (option) // Essie: Fingers: Ruffles & Feathers Toes: Butler Please
