Love and Lace

With everyone’s favorite day of love approaching there are several styles one can uptake. As seen in previous posts, color can be a defining factor of your desired outfit, but so can fabric.

Notably, from the options of: mesh, satin, leather, cotton, silk, cambrin, and brocade, there are endless possibilities. Yet, the most romantic and delicate is lace. Particularly, lace is a Valentines dream due to the plaited and braided embroidery. The floral twists and knits scream love.  An added bonus is that lace is always showcased in February. The concept of lace is generalized as romantic.

The lovely, fabric cultivates personality too. If you seek the cute feminine classic look, lace is the perfect foundation for a dress. For more idyllic Valentines day outfits lace can also provide a formal air of elegance. Likewise, lace can also be sported in a sultry and amorous. So, your personal taste can shine through with the beautiful fabric.

Evidently, lace is an evolving fabric. So, if you want to wear a certain color go for it. Popular colors for lace for this passionate day are lavender, pale pink, dark red, and creme white.Lace is now sported in all colors like the pink  lace dress I’m wearing below.   Similarly, if your love day plans require a bold and sexy broadway red then you can surely find it.

Love and lace can be achieved. The older fabric is still a vital symbol for the immensity of Valentines day. Lace can be worn in any style and be cultivated into any color.

 

 

Professional Pink

In a classic business setting most people stick to neutral colors. Normally a dark plain blazer and matching pants. Likewise, the undershirt is a grey, white, or light blue blouse. The neutral colors indicate a form of salaried workers. The bottoms, pants or skirts, are to be crisp and straight down.
Recently, I saw a few lighter colored blazers in an accessory shop. Due to my affinity for the color pink I found it adorable. My only struggle was how to make this blazer business casual.
My veterinary courses require a blue-color dress code on Fridays. So, I decided to test out my outfit for the day. I paired my double buttoned pink blaze,r from Versona, with a simple flair skirt, I got from H&M. I also have a lace pink top from Anthropologie.
I then accessorizes my outfit with pieces from Primark. I attached a velvet bow to the lace trim of my top. I added a pink floral hair pins to push my hair back. For shoes I kept the professional trend and wore black round toe heels. However, for after class I added my pair of feathered light pink glitter pumps.
The outfit was a stretch out of my normally work wear or business professional attire, yet it made me stand out from all the other uniform looks. Work wear can still be chic and cute. The professional pink look was a go that I would repeat again.
Down below, I attached an outfit set and links. Listed below is wear you can find similar items to my professional pink outfit.

Clothing Resloutions

This past year I’ve gotten more comftorable with utilizing clothes as a form of expression and art. Here are a list of notes I’ve uncovered and hope to share for this upcoming year. Its important that when we make resolutions to resolve to hold our selves at a great standard of confidence. The best way to do so it threw clothes.

  1. Don’t be afraid to mix patterns (stripes, stars, animal prints, glitter)
  2. Its okay for your bra or bralette to show
  3. Boots are acceptable to wear in the summer (they are great with dresses)
  4. Just cause its a trend doesn’t mean you have to like it
  5. You can have more than one accessory (it won’t clash!)
  6. Its okay to mix fabrics (lace, leather, velvet, suede)
  7. Its okay to sport old trends (I love boho dresses even though it was late 1990’s trend)
  8. White apperal is okay after labor day
  9. Fishnets can be worn durring the day
  10. Classic looks are a wardorbe stable

Seven For All Mankind

I’ve only worn jeans from four three different brands. Once I find a brand I like I tend to wholeheartedly committ to it. My wardrobe staple brands are like my life long relationships; dependable and always on my mind.

So, when it was time to get a pair of jeans I wouldn’t ruin out at the stables or rescue I decided to go with my all time denim must have brand, Seven For All Mankind. Since, its start in 2000 I have been a fan and ultimatly cherished every pair I’ve gotten from them.

Seven For All Mankind jeans have been a great fit and ultimatly good for a night out. Every pair I’ve gotten from them has been fit and detailed. The designers Dahan and Glasser saw the brand as a way to fufill the void that is often seen in denim appearal. They both sought to make there jeans specific to detail and with enhanced embrodiery to subdue the lull in contemporary denim markets.

My most recent pair of Seven For All Mankind jeans I’ve gotten was there camo denim jeans. The jeans are tailored nicley. They also host good embrodiery in a gold color in the signature “A” stiched on the pockets. Along with that the detailing on the jeans is subpar with adorable gold star studs along the pockets.

The jeans are great to pair with a bodysuit and heels. Personally I utilized my Shein mesh body suit with a pair of black platform wedges. This outfit is great for a night out in Perth.

Love the denim camo print trend right now and my @7forallmankind jeans! #fashionblog

Holiday Dress

With New Years right around the corner it is of uptmost importance to celebrate. One of the ways loads of people do so is with Holiday parties. This normally has a ridgid dress code of metallic and glittery dresses.

However, this year I decided to further myself away from the typical silver and bronze metalic look and go for a more softer party dress.

Notably, I still picked a statment dress to help me celebrate the new year, yet it was not loud with sequins and sparkles like mine in years past. I have so far found it away to stand out from the extensive amounts of glitter and club styles everyone else sports.

Instead, this year I opted for a bold color with hints of gold threading. I picked a hot pink skater midid flair dress. The dress incorperated a creme french drappery pattern. This pattern was highlighted with gold embrodery. The dress compared to other years is simpler and quiter. Yet, it is still in a fun color and with contemporary needle work.  I styled this outfit with nude heals. Also I added accents of creme and gold necklaces and bangles. This achieved look was fun and frilly.
