My Signature Look

February 1, 2012 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

Everyone strives to have their own their look; a signature style that makes us feel unique.  For me, I don’t necessarily go for a specific fashion statement, like modern or preppy. I prefer to add a few key pieces to my outfit to create my signature look.  For example, I never leave the house three favorite chains and I have yet to come across an outfit that doesn’t go with my necklaces.  One necklace has very distinct charms with special meanings; the second is a mala for strength (seen here) and the third is the longest with a leaf, a horn and a simple blue stone.  Another way I create my own signature style is to stack a ton of bangles on my arm, and wear huge but simple earrings and oversized rings.

My Accessories:

Queen Ring (bold round one on the far right) – COMING SOON to Twistedsilver.com

Bangles – Luckybrand.com

Watch – Timex

Blue Stone Ring – Charlotterusse.com

Sunglasses – Ray-Ban

Leaf Necklace – Americaneagle.com

Low Luv necklace with my personal charms – Stylebop.com

Clearly I let the accessories define my signature look (bold, dainty and eclectic)because I wear a wide array of outfits.  One day I go for boho and another preppy rocker chic…… everyday it changes and I love playing with different styles! Below are three different outfits with my signature spin on them.  What’s your signature look or piece?

In this outfit, I’m focusing on the blazer. I love how the masculine striped blazer let’s the other sexy pieces shine while also giving the eclectic selection of accessories a fresh feel.

Blazer – Barneys.com, Tank Top – Buckle.com, Shorts – StyleBop.com, Boots – Stevemadden.com, Bangles – Luckybrand.com, Toggle Bracelet – 1928.com, Ring – Modcloth.com, Earrings – Maxandchloe.com, Horn Necklace – ASOS.com, Love & Luck Necklace – Piperlime.com

In this outfit the focus is on the shrug. It’s a must have piece regardless of season and I  own a shrug in every color including a bunch with a little sparkle.  I purposely use short sleeve shrugs to give my outfits a quirky, unfinished touch against long sleeves or to balance out anything sleeveless.  When paired with a funky scarf you’ll definitely stand out in the crowd!

In this outfit the focus is on the faux leather jacket. Leather jackets are timeless and  toughen up any outfit.  This outfit is also my favorite and reflects my style the most because it has all of my favorite style elements: the sweet, unfussy boho tank, the flared pants and the buckled booties (i love buckles and pockets!!!!).

A Little Boho Goes A long Way

March 30, 2011 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

While the boho look is nothing new, it has experienced a resurgence in popularity recently with the help of some of today’s hottest celebrities (Nicole Richie, Drew Barrymore and Sienna Miller just to name a few).  Best of all, there’s no need to be a size 2 to get the boho vibe…something I know from personal experience!   Check out some of my tips on how to incoroporate a little boho into your Spring wardrobe with pieces from one of my favorite plus size fashion stores, Simply Be.

 

While the boho trend can be a tricky style to nail because it straddles the messy and overly sloppy look, the key is moderation.  There’s no need to wear it from head to toe (and for that matter there’s no need to wear any trend from head to toe). Below are a few tips:

A favorite way to add a little boho to your everyday look is a big, slouchy hobo bag There are a variety of hobo bags to choose from without breaking the bank.

Slouch Bag – $45

Scarves provide a simple and bold way to give an outfit that unstructured yet classy vibe.  There are a ton of lightweight scarves that are perfect for the warmer weather.

Scarf – $24

A maxi dress is an excellent and comfy option to get the boho look – particularly when paired with a blazer or leather jacket. The dress provides the boho part, and the jacket pulls it all together.

Maxi Dress – $73

Jewelry is the easiest and most fool proof way to add a little boho to your style.  Whether it’s long beaded chains, bangles or a pair of chandelier earrings you can’t go wrong.  Pair them with a white shirt to the office or with a tee during the day.

Bangles – $24

When it comes to shoes, the possibilities are endless.  A pair of slouchy boots, wedge heels, or braided sandals immediately come to mind.

Peep Toe Bootie – $57

So, whether your style is classic, modern, preppy or just straight up trendy, why not add a little boho to your look?
