La Pecosa Preciosa

Sex Appeal

Hi Lovies!

For most date nights with my Beau, I like to put a little more effort into what I am going to wear. We love to go out for brunch or dinner on the weekends so my outfit varies depending where we go. But there are times where I want to take my look up a notch and go extra sexy. When you've been with someone for 6 years, you have to try to keep the relationship new and exciting. Like surprising him with a super sexy ensemble to peak his interest and remind him what a hot mama he has lol. Now you know I always like to stay within my own personal style, classy and elegant, but jazz it up to add the extra sexiness I'm looking for. This Serena Sheath Dress was definitely right up my alley, with it's bold cutout cage detailing on the shoulders and hemline, showing off some skin. For me, sheath dresses can tend to make me look boxy since I'm not super curvy, so I like to belt them to give me more of a shape. The v-neck design showed just enough cleavage to entice my beau but still leaving something to the imagination and the lovely blue color went great with my skin tone.

The White Shirt

Hi Lovies,

One thing that every woman should have in her wardrobe is a white button up shirt. There's just something that is so clean and crisp about it, definitely adding a bit of sharpness to an outfit. The simple white shirt has definitely evolved over the years and now comes in many styles. When I saw this Hi/Lo Tunic style one from The Avenue, I knew I had to have it. It was so different and I love me a tunic. I still get the crisp white tailored look of a white shirt but with a longer length. Plus the shirt has pockets, which was mine blowing to me. Pure genius on the part of The Avenue for adding pockets. Bravo!!

Seeing Spots

Hi Lovies,

Now that we are only 20 days away from Spring, I can start daydreaming of a new wardrobe. One thing I love to wear during this season are bold prints and color. Stripes has always been a love of mine but polka dots are a close second. For some, this type of print can be intimidating but I embrace it with open arms. I find polka dot print to be so girly and whimsical, definitely bringing me back to my childhood. Since I already own tops and skirts in polka dot print, I decided to go on a hunt for a dress. Ashley Stewart answered my prayers with this fab Polka Dot A-Line Skirt Dress. I love me a shirt dress, especially in an A-line design and this one was definitely a beauty. The cuff sleeves, belted waist and over sized polka dots made this such a mod look. The fit was amazing and super comfy with the elastic waist band, all that was missing were pockets. I totally felt like a 60's house wife in this dress.

The Wrap Dress

Hi Lovies,

As you guys know I always shop for clothing that can do double duty for me. Things that I can wear to work, after work and on the weekends. You know I am a total dress girl and one of my favorite silhouettes is the wrap dress. I don't know if it's because of my love for the Diane Von Furstenberg classic wrap dress but there's just something so feminine and sexy about them. They look great on just about any shape and are figure flattering. I love that I can wear this to work, as well on the weekend with just a quick change of my accessories. It is definitely a staple piece to have in your wardrobe.

Safari Chic

Hi Lovies!

When deciding on wearing casual outfits, I never think of just jeans and a t-shirt. I like to look a little deeper than that. My casual look has to have some type of flair or chicness to it. But achieving this doesn't require a lot of thought and some of the simplest pieces put together can make this happen. This weekend I reach for a pair of cargo joggers and a tunic. Simple, right? Joggers can be very versatile, being you can dress them up with a pair of heels or booties or down with a pair of sneakers. This pair from Fullbeauty were amazing, comfortable, and the army green color goes with so much and is super trendy right now. They are a must have for the upcoming spring season. The Sabrina Tunic was nothing short of simple, the beautiful earth tone print went perfectly with the joggers. No need for a necklace with this easy breezy top due to the embellished gold trim neckline. I also love that the sleeves could be wore down or rolled up, perfect for warmer weather. Boots were the way to go on this day and their Cleo Bootie are literally my fav ever, so much so I own them in all three colors.

Cold Snap

Hi Lovies,

Just when you think you can start thinking about Spring, Old Man Winter rears his ugly head. Living in NYC you have to be ready for anything during the Winter. One day could be below zero temps and the next we are in the high 50's. I like to remain ready with an arsenal of different outerwear in my closet. One type that is a must have is a good puffer coat. I use to shy away from this type of coat because I felt they made me look bigger. But now there are so many varieties that are super stylish, have great silhouettes and structure. This Belted Puffer from Fullbeauty was such a great pick, I love the pretty camel color and the lightweight design. The rounded hemline was very flattering along with the belt which cinches the waist. Plus it has a fur trim hood that made it an instant chic winter look.

Hi Lovies!

Now that the sun is staying out a bit longer and spring is within our reach, I can start looking at spring clothing. You know how much I despise the winter, so it's a treat to look at all the wonderful things that are starting to pop up for the upcoming season. In a previous post, I spoke of the brand the Avenue and how they have come a long way with their fashion. They currently have a bunch of great pieces for spring, especially in dresses. You know I'm a total dress girl and love adding unique ones to my collection. This Asymmetrical Denim Dress was definitely something I didn't have and would be perfect for spring.

Plus Size Remix: Stylish Petite

Happy Monday Lovies!

It's that time again where I bring you another edition of my "Plus Size Remix". This months inspiration comes from the super cute and fashionable Annie of Stylish Petite. I can't get enough of her style, she's the epitome of feminine and girly with a side of whimsy. She can go from all out fancy/formal to simple/casual all while looking polished and fabulous. She's another one you'll find in abundance on my Pinterest Style Inspiration board. This look was one of the first ones I ever pinned and have been wanting to recreate it for the longest time. I live for my simple but chic looks and this is totally one of them. 

Work Wear with Modamix

Hi Lovies,

As you know I work in the fashion industry and the dress code in my office is pretty relaxed. But during Market week everyone in the office likes to step up their outfits for our accounts that stop in. For last market I put together a work wear outfit from the Modamix's Resort Collection. You remember me and my blogger boo Darlene had the pleasure of shooting with them for this collection (see here). What I love about this collection is the variety of silhouettes, bold prints and colors. There's so many combinations and styles to create, the possibilities are endless.
