How to Make Your Lover “Blush” This Valentines Day

Oh, February….The month of LOVE! If you’ve stopped by the blog lately and/or follow me on IG, you’ve probably noticed that my love affair with the color “Blush” is hot and heavy! For as long as I can remember, I have always been an admirer of virtually any shade of pink; and although I still find flamingo pink and hot pink simply irresistible, “Blush” seems a more appropriate approach for the maturer pink lover in me.  My favorite way to describe the color “Blush” is: “Pink with a hint of vintage”. And you all know I love just about anything that can be classified under vintage!

Speaking of LOVE, Valentines Day is right around the corner and this year, instead of going for the cliche “LRD” (Little Red Dress), how about going for an “LBD”? Now every fashionista knows that “LBD” is actually the acronym for “Little Black Dress”, but for the sake of this post “LBD” will be defined as “Little Blush Dress”!

Regardless of whether you go for an “LBD” or an “LRD” fishnet stockings are a sure fire way of making your honey “blush” (pun totally intended) this Valentines Day.  And if you can get your hands on a fishnet or lace bodystocking to wear under your “LBD” or “LRD”, well, just be sure to have rag ready to wipe the drool off your Valentines face.

I’ll be sharing more Valentines Day inspired looks throughout the next two weeks, so stay tuned!

White, Black and Jacquard

Today’s look is one of my favorites so far on Sun Fun Fashion! This cobalt blue, jacquard, A-line skirt from Zara is a true statement thread. Jacquard is a texturally rich and visually luxurious fabric named after the Jacquard loom on which it is woven. The Jacquard loom is a mechanical loom, invented by Joseph Marie Jacquard, that simplifies the process of manufacturing textiles with complex patterns. Peep the subtle faux leather waistband enhancing this elegant skirt with a dash of edge. I just love it! It seriously makes me feel like a million bucks!

What do you think?
What makes you feel elegant and luxurious?

I wish you all a happy Friday and hope you all have a magical weekend!

Hitting the Sale Rack

Let me start off by wishing you all a happy, healthy and successful new year! The past few weeks have been a whirlwind and Little Ms. Sun Fun Fashion (<–that’s ME) Lol.. has been M.I.A. Well,  NO MORE! I may have put my blogging wayside, but NEVER my fashion adventures!

On a recent Christmas shopping expedition to Coconut Grove I discovered a wonderful, little buy, sell, trade shop named Sale Rack located right on Main Highway. Sale Rack carries an eclectic variety of new, used and vintage items at very reasonable prices.  While perusing the “Sale Racks” you get the feeling you’re traveling through time as you encounter anything from timeless vintage beauties, to more modern, hipster trends.  Sale Rack has something interesting and fabulous for just about everyone and the shop’s highly organized selection is separated by sizes, making it very easy to shop.  If you really want to know what makes Sale Rack a fashion gem in my opinion …. Well, it’s two things:

1. The abundant variety of spectacular jewelry and accessories; and
2. The owner, Allison Sagehorn is endearing, friendly and very helpful just like the rest of the sales associates.

I nabbed the über comfy maxi skirt and rhinestone snake ring (as well as many other treasures that you will see in the near future) in this post at Sale Rack.  Sale Rack is located at 3444 Main Highway #20, Coconut Grove, Florida 33133.  Check it out!
