Chic and Casual Mix: Cape & Pencil Skirt

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone has had a wonderful week! The weather here is currently all over the place (hence the crazy wind in my hair in the photos.) I have a story behind the t-shirt that I am wearing for this post! The shirt is a caricature of Coco Chanel, one of my all-time favorites, accompanied by the statement “I don’t give a chic”. I bought this t-shirt at a Souk (market) in Dubai because of my Mom. Even when my Mom is really upset, she does not use foul language – however, recently in a discussion she surprised me with the term “I don’t give a shiiiiiiit” (the i sounded like a very long e.) It made me laugh out loud, and I couldn’t resist this t-shirt as a result.

I love pencil skirts! They have an understated elegance and sex appeal. This gray metallic tweed can be dressed up or down, as I have done here with the addition of the whimsical t-shirt (this skirt would also look great with some All-Stars and a white-T.) I also love it more polished with a white button down, and here I kept the rest of the outfit upscale with my cape (super hero moment) and stilettos.

Edgy Yet Feminine: Tutu Dress & Leather

Hello lovelies!

 I am behind on posting this week but truthfully I am just having a hard time getting back into the swing of things post holiday.  But I should be back on schedule next week (fingers crossed)!

I want to share this absolutely adorable tutu dress which is so user-friendly.  You know I love a good tutu (see here) – they are extremely fun and flirty.  However, I do realize that not everyone wants to walk around in a tutu all the time.  This dress has the perfect element of sweet to it but with the addition of the leather jacket it becomes edgier.  I love the juxtaposition of the two elements which make it feel contemporary.  My accessories are to a minimum to keep things simple and sleek.

Holiday Party Time: Black Cape and Black Dress

Hello lovelies!

I want to share some fun ideas for holiday party outfits.  I adore capes (remember this one here) and this one is perfect.  It is light in weight and thus perfect for layering and the length and shape is divine.  I have worn it casually over jeans and skinnies and love that it can be used across the spectrum from cocktail parties to girls lunch.

The layered eyelet dress with a skin tone color underneath is very popular right now and this dress is a great way to indulge in the trend.  I adore the subtle sexy element of it without actually showing any skin. I threw on the belt and heels and I was ready to roll.
