Fashion

Rag and Bone is definitely my go-to fashion brand each season, as I find their styles are classic, wearable yet with a cool and modern edge that is right on point. Currently obsessed with this ultra cool quilted black bomber jacket made with satin twill. It is slightly oversized but not too much, and the black and white pinstripe trims add a sporty spin to it. It goes perfect with your favorite jeans and sneakers, or you can go sexy wearing a tight dress inside the jacket. It is selling out fast, and there are a few other similar but budget-friendly pieces for under $150 including this one and this one!

Mix/Match or Dress? I am definitely a dress girl for the rushed mornings! Every season I’d like to add a few timeless pieces into my closet. My favorite go-to dress lately is this military inspired SMYTHE Tunic Dress, I love the effortless vibe of this dress – anything that makes me look like I haven’t tried too hard is a winner for me. It is such a versatile dress that I have worn in warm days with a pair of tanned colored sandals (as styled here and here), as well as in the colder days with a pair of booties. In this OOTD, I had the Stuart Weitzman Mitten booties on (the most comfortable booties I have ever owned!), and it also looks great with thigh high suede booties. As with all SMYTHE clothing, the fabric is beautiful – it’s neither too thin or nor too stiff. The lace up collar adds an updated  fashion spin to this simple dress.

OOTD – The Flares

April 21, 2016

I haven’t been that excited with new season’s fashion for a while, as I am fully embracing the retro trend from the 70s with flares making a huge comeback. Favorite collection so far is the Zimmerman’s 2016 collection including this paisley necklet top in this OOTD.  As much as I try to add ‘non monochrome’ pieces into my closet, finding a perfect floral top has always been a challenge for me that doesn’t look overly cute, nor too matronly. This top updated with a neck tie and bell sleeves is right on point and tres chic. Pairing it with a cropped wide leg pant, and my go-to Valentino rockstud pump in Noir that literally goes with everything!

Shopbop is having its annual Family and Friends Sale now with code INTHEFAM for 25% off on full price and sale items (3 days only). It’s always delightful news for people who like stocking up new styles like me! This year there is a major update in the silhouette for the classic items such as Jeans and tops, and my fashion goal to add a few pieces that are on trend for this season. Currently obsessed with anything with flares and frays. I put together some pieces from Shopbop that I am having a major crush over – especially the pictured 3×1 cropped denim with raw hems and a small flare – tres chic! Mules and saddle bags are the accessories to go for this season.

New Resort Wear 2016

February 15, 2016

The job of finding a new piece of perfect resort wear before you go on a vacation is always tough. I always have the dilemma of “should I go all bold, or should I stay simple and minimalist”. After being on the lookout for several weeks, I finally decided on this beautiful intricately made Snowflake Lace Top from the SEA Resort 2016 collection. It’s young, fresh and romantic and I love the fact that the style is also versatile enough to be worn on an everyday basis.

Aquazurra is taking the fashion world by storm over the past few years, and is certainly setting himself as a shoe trend setter who is also becoming my favorite shoe brand to collect. I own several pairs of them (see my post here and here), and my newest addition is the iconic Sexy Thing Suede Sandals in nude color (finally!). I love their shoes – they are sexy and young with a chic edge to it (not the usual boring pumps), and are comfortable for heels as they are very lightweight yet sturdy.

This style is the most classic from Aquazurra, and it comes in a rainbow of colors as well as different heights of heels (love this gray pair as well!). Most of their sandals can also be worn as cut-out booties, so they make great transitional pieces to wear into the winter. If I make an investment on shoes, they always have to be work appropriate but also great for styling with causal (off duty) wears and this pair ticks all the checkboxes!

Shopbop Sales Pick!

November 25, 2015

Shopbop has started its major sales event with up to 25% off across the entire store including the sales items with code GOBIG15! I’d thought I’d share some of my favorite pieces from my closet that I previously purchased from them. This season every girl should own a button front skirt, and I managed to find a very affordable piece from the brand WAYF for less than $100. It’s made of faux suede and looks just as good as the more expensive ones. I love it pair it up with a timeless fitted v neck tee to give an effortless sexy vibe. And you can never go wrong with a floppy brim hat and a pair of booties with hardware details this fall.

I am a regular shopper at Shopbop so there is nothing more exciting than the popular Shopbop’s Family and Friend’s Sale (25% off with code INTHEFAM25 – some brand exclusions apply) that is happening now! It is the best time to snatch up some bargains so I thought I’d introduce a really affordable and well-made shoe brand that I’ve been liking lately.

It is quite obvious that I love investing in beautiful designer shoes, and lately I was on the lookout for a pair of nude strappy sandals. I had my eyes set on the Stuart Weitzman Nudist but they looked very average on me after trying them on. So I decided to skimp on a pair of Schutz Cadey Lee Sandals in flesh colored suede (a very popular style from the brand), and I was very impressed with the way they look and the quality of their shoes (all leather and made in Brazil) at such a reasonable price. They look far better than the SW’s on me – more delicate and slimming on my feet which is exactly what I was after! My second pair is the Schutz Yoko Suede Sandals/Booties. It is really hard to come by a pair of olive suede boots and the style reminds me of my all time favorite booties by Alexander Wang that I wore literally everyday. The only flaw about the Yoko is that the opening is quite big for my skinny ankles, so they only look great if I wear them with skinny leggings/jeans.
