Head-to-Toe Fall Faves

Today’s look is comprised of my Head-to-Toe Fall Faves!

1.  Wool Fedora – Perhaps my #1 favorite Fall accessory! Perfect for Miami’s sunny fall weather! Look fierce while protecting that gorgeous skin from the sun!

2.  Blood Wine Lips – Bold, bloody lips scream Fall and I can’t tell you how many compliments/questions I get about this lip color combo.  To achieve this look I use a MAC lip pencil called “Currant” and a Wet-n-Wild lip color called “Sugar Plum Fairy” #908C.

3.  Dual Pearl Studs – As seen on virtually every single fashion blogger in the universe at the moment, these dual pearl earrings are the perfect combination of femininity and edge and I just can’t put them down!

4.  Chambray (Denim) – Denim, chambray and more denim! Head-to-toe denim a/k/a The Canadian Tuxedo is one of Fall 2014’s most popular trends and this light Chambray button down from Forever 21 is the ideal tone to pair with slightly darker denim to achieve that perfect Canadian Tuxedo look.

5.  Leather- Leather is a no brainer for Fall, but full blown leather leggings in Miami’s “Faux Fall” are still impossible to endure (maybe in January), therefore these black leggings with faux leather paneling are the perfect alternative!

6.  Wedge Booties– I have to admit wedged boots are something that have slowly grown on me.  Comfort is perhaps the #1 reason for my newfound love of them.   Living in Brickell and working in Downtown call for a heavy pedestrian lifestyle and I can walk for miles and miles in these rock star-ish Vince Camuto wedge booties.

Also wearing: Gold Shark Tooth Necklace; Tan Envelope Clutch; Wraparound Leather Cuff Bracelet; Pave Criss-Cross Ring; Shark Mouth Midi-Ring.

Color Happy

What can I say … I’m Color Happy!! I perpetually feel the need to throw in a pop of color. Not that I can’t see myself in a head-to-toe monochromatic look, I’m just saying it rarely happens. Be it by way of jewelry, handbag, shoes or accessories there is always room for color in my world! In today’s featured look I went for all of the above, but balanced things out a bit with a classic black pencil skirt and satchel.  What do you think?

I wish you all a colorful and happy day!  Thank you for stopping by!

Floral x Floral

I simply adore florals, not only are they easy to incorporate into your year round wardrobe (especially if you live in tropical Miami) but I also love mixing florals with other prints, or even other floral pieces to create a head -to- toe floral garden look such as today’s OOTD!  Someone invite me to a garden tea party!! I’m ready!

Floral Jumpsuit

Hey Dolls! This past Friday I attended my friend Jonathan’s medical school graduation party at The Bar at Level 25 of the Conrad Hotel.  The Bar at Level 25 is beautifully located on the 25th floor of the Conrad Hotel and provides ravishing views of Miami’s skyline, a mod ambiance and delightful sips and bites. This venue is a great place to host a party or unwind for happy hour!  I am so proud of my friend for his huge accomplishment and very thankful for the fun times Friday night.

I wore this Nasty Gal x Shakuhachi floral jumpsuit that I seriously want to live in. Jumpsuits are so incredibly comfy and totally trending for spring and summer! This particular jumpsuit is sold out, but here, here, here, here and here are a few similar styles currently tickling my fancy!

I wish you all a wonderful evening! Thanks for stopping by!

I have an admission to make…. I did an awful job at packing for my recent past trip to Los Angeles! Aside from the outfits, accessories and essentials for the actual FABB conference, I neglected to pack just about everything else!  I had no pajamas, no flip flops and only one extra T-shirt (the one you see below).  Considering the desperate and deficient circumstances in which the outfit below came to be, I had no intention of photographing this outfit.  However, after the Lucky FABB Networking Brunch, my boyfriend and I decided to take a stroll around L.A. and head to the Farmers Market for a late lunch and we came across this gorgeous mural on the side wall of a gas station and I just couldn’t resist snapping a few pics!

Good Old Fashioned Love

Happy Hump Day Lovers!! Considering it’s Valentine’s Day- week, I hope you all have an “extra special” (wink, wink) Hump Day! Lol!

Today’s Valentine’s Day inspired look is dedicated to my love for one of a kind vintage finds! There’s nothing like the feeling of stepping into a vintage boutique; the smell, the stories, the possibilities… Ohhhhh! I get goosebumps just thinking about it! I scored this gorgeous, drop waist, pleated dress at Hubba Hubba Vintage Apparel in Burbank, California last summer. Burbank, California is home to all the major film production studios in the United States including, Warner Brothers, Disney, Universal, Paramount and Sony to name a few. As a result, Burbank is one of the absolute most amazing places to score vintage and thrift finds due to the large intake of items received from the studios upon completion of films and projects. Essentially, any item from a vintage or thrift shop in Burbank was more than likely used on a film set and/or probably worn by a major movie star, actor or extra. Pretty cool huh?

Although I don’t know exactly if and when this romantic, pleated dress was used on a film set, I imagine it being part of the wardrobe to a 1940- 1960 “Good Old Fashioned Love Story”! Something along the lines of “Casablanca” or “Thrill of a Romance” (two of my favorite “oldie, but goodie” films). In a more current film set, this dress would be a shoe in for the “Mad Men” wardrobe! Don’t you think?

What’s your favorite time period in fashion?
