Black Widow Baby

Now here’s a look featuring a dress so nice, I bought it twice!  You’ve seen this dress before in white here and I felt so stylish and comfy in it that I could not resist purchasing it in black as well.  I love the modern cut, loose fit and POCKETS!! I love any dress or skirt with pockets!  I added my touch of edge by accessorizing with this incredible statement necklace and black lace/studded booties!

I gotta admit, I felt kinda bad ass in this outfit! Stylish and dangerous, a lethal combination.

What makes you feel confident and bad ass?

Pattern Play

Don’t you just love when you’re perusing the racks and suddenly you spot something wonderful! Last week on a lunchtime trip to Marshalls I spotted this adorable Collective Concepts dress and was immediately smitten! I love everything about this dress! For starters, the burnt orange, navy and light pink leopard print is so different and refreshing! The flared/pleated skirt is feminine and playful, while the contrasting color patches at the waist add a slimming effect! Need I say more? Fashionistas, this is what I like to call a #FABFOUND winner!

Since we all know I love a little “Pattern Play” I decided to throw on my seersucker striped blazer.  When playing with colorful patterns always remember that it is very important to keep within similar color families down to your shoes and accessories. Notice how although the blue/ivory stripes on the blazer play well with the navy/ivory leopard rosettes on the dress; it is the similar colored navy shoes and handbag that act as the perfect cohesive for these two converse patterns (stripes and spots).

All in all, I love the way this whole look came together.  What do you think?

Fancy Wednesday: Booties

As much as I would LOVE to start posting “Fall Fancies” to include my favorite fall trends such as moto-jackets and over- the-knee boots, let’s face it, what kind of psycho would I appear to be– considering I live in Miami!

BOOTIES, however, are the perfect way to slowly ease into Fall without suffering from heat stroke.  Whether you prefer sheer, zippered, lace-up, studded or fringed booties, pair them with your short skirts and shorts (for the time being) for a sexy and edgy Semi-Fall look!

Flower Punch

Hello, my name is Martha and I am a Floral-holic!!

This has certainly been the year of floral print for me, but can you blame me? Floral prints have come a very long way.  Today’s floral prints are not reminiscent of your “abuela’s” curtains, today’s floral prints are abstract, digital, geometric and just plain exhilarating.

Okay, so now that I have declared my addiction and justification for my love of florals, let’s talk about this irresistible, floral skater skirt I found while perusing the racks at TJ Maxx.  With two other floral items already in hand I tried to resist it, but with it’s punchy floral print and $10.00 price tag, surrender was the only option. I grabbed it, held it up for my BFF to approve to which she replied “are you kidding me? That has YOU written ALL over!” Lol!

I decided to tone down the punch a bit with a silky ivory v-neck and cork sandals.  Cork sandals are extremely versatile. I.M.O.: they can be paired with essentially any casual or semi-casual ensemble. I just love them for summer! To kick the punch back up a bit, I grabbed my Vince Camuto Color Block Satchel with a similar punchy tone.     * F.Y. I. Color Block handbags are back with a vengeance for Fall 2014 fashion!

The rest of my outfit details are below!  I hope you enjoy this look as much I did!

Hope you enjoyed the FLOWER PUNCH!
