Sassybax Convert-A-Skirt For Day & Night

February 25, 2016 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

A little black dress is a closet staple but a little black dress that’s also a skirt and minimizes my waist and midriff is just genius!  When I first got the Sassybax Convert-A-Skirt I immediately worried that it was going to be one of those suffocating fabrics – but it’s not.  Sure it’s snug, but just snug enough to slim all the right spots.  The more you play around with it the better it looks and what totally had me hooked was how when I realized that it held up the “little girls” and we all know that’s not an easy task.  I wouldn’t say I would be able to go braless in it BUT any strapless bra would do (unlike other strapless dresses without support where I have to search high and low for maximum support).   I’m obsessed with this dress!  The fabric is a matte black making it super easy to dress up or down.  It stays put which is important for me because I plan on wearing it on the dance floor and it’s machine washable.  I could go son and on!  It’s the perfect dress to pack on any vacation, for a night out on the town or under a blazer for a sexy office look.   For more info on Sassybax’s Convert A Skirt visit www.sassybax.com

The Formula: Denim Jacket

~ The Formula: Denim Jacket ~

Still one of my favorite dresses.

Whenever I want to look pulled together but not too dressy I throw on a denim jacket.  I’ve had this dress from Ross for years and I’ve worn it solo during the summer, with sweaters and tights when it’s cold but my favorite is with denim.  I was originally going to wear my deeper blue Levi’s jacket (seen here) but I thought the distressed one from American Eagle went way better with the boho vibe. Tip:  If you’re lucky enough to get casual Friday’s at work, a denim jacket is an easy replacement for a suit or blazer and you can wear it with any skirt or pants.

Just a few pairs of shoes that will be in heavy rotation this summer. 🙂

I wanted a pair of strappy sandals but I find them a tad uncomfortable.  These heels (on the left) by Dolce Vita are a perfect replacement.  They lace up the front but still give me the support I need.  They’re by far one of my favorite!  The Steven wedges are amazing!  They go with everything and look amazing with a little black dress.  The metallic wedge give them a little glitz and the tan color keeps them casual – love them!

summer heels

As much as I love my heels I need to be realistic.  I can’t always run around with heels while I’m with the baby.  For those busy days I have my Yosi Samra sandals in white with animal print.  SO comfy!  In my purse I usually carry around my London Sole ballerina flats.  They go with everything anytime of the year!

For days at the playground I’ve also got some sneaks.  I bought these keds like sneaks from a street vendor in NY for only $5 each.   Nothing beats shopping those NY street vendors – nothing!  I miss NY 🙁

Sneaks for $5

Celebrity Copycat: Rachel Zoe’s Look for $100!

November 8, 2013 by  
Filed under Celebrity Copycat

This Copycat has been a challenge in more ways than one! When I was asked to find a few looks for under $100, I decided to stick to regular sizes as opposed to maternity clothes to accommodate my bump because I wanted to be able to use the pieces later on. While shopping at Kmart I knew I wanted a somewhat dressy yet comfy outfit for Thanksgiving and as soon as I saw the maxi skirt and sherling vest it reminded me of a similar outfit on Rachel Zoe.  The vest and the shoes are what make the outfit and both pieces were only $30!  The comfy skirt and top together were only $22 and the fab tote was only $30 with 30% off.  The grand total was around $104 but since I became a member last month Kmart took 10% off the entire total bringing it down to $100 – SCORE!

This is probably my favorite outfit because of the boho vibe that I’ve always loved. I know I’ve said this about other outfits, but this is another look that can be broken down and dressed up even more with some sequins or made more casual by adding flats or boots.  It’s what I look for in all the pieces in my closet: versatility, affordability and of course stylish!

Sherling Vest – $29.99 | Maxi Skirt – $12 | Black V Neck Tee – $9.99 | Tote – $20.99 | Platform Wedges – $29.99

Rebecca Minkoff Ragini Slide Sandals

When it comes to summer heels I like them to have a casual feel but still give me the sexy height.  For the most part wedges do the trick, but sometimes I want a little more oomph and while looking around for a pair to wear all summer I found these Ragini Slide Sandals by Rebecca Minkoff and I instantly fell in love!  What I like about this pair is that they manage to have every single detail that I was looking for: the wooden stacked heel is comfy and has the casual look I wanted, the ankle strap is dainty and the gold trim glams it up.  I’m definitely going to be wearing these babies a whole lot!

Lace & Flats

I’ve had this white lace shift dress for some time and I would have worn it sooner but it didn’t fit.  Yep this baby has been sitting in my closet for 3 months and 10 pounds.  I kept trying it on every couple of weeks and I was SO happy last week when it actually fit!  I’m still a few pounds of from my goal weight but I’m happy how far I’ve come.

Normally I would be terrified to wear a white dress but being that it’s a shift dress it’s a lot more forgiving. For accessories I kept it simple because I wanted to let the green bag do all the work and for shoes  I was initially going to pair the dress with pointy toe pumps but  I thought they were way too expected and a little dressier than I wanted to look so I decided  to wear these gorgeous flats by London Sole that gave it the perfect balance of dressy and dainty but still casual.

I was so thrilled when I got the  London Sole Henrietta Quilted flats worn by some of my favorite fashionista like Olivia Plaermo, Kate and Pippa Middleton, and Reese Witherspoon are just a few of their large celebrity following..They’re the true definition of a stylish classic shoe that won’t go out of style and well worth the investment making them a celeb and stylist favorite. These are the types of shoes that need to be in any women’s closet (especially busy moms like me) because they’re easy to wear for day or night, comfy and can be worn year round.  I love the details like the quilting that London Sole is famous for, the dainty little bow and even the heart inside their leather lining.  So glad I got them now because I have tons of shorts both casual and dressy that I plan on pairing them with a la Olivia Palermo.
