Denim Day

Happy Denim Day!!! 

 

I know you’ve been wondering where have I been. Let’s just say…… IVF post coming soon.

Denim

a heavy, Z-twist, twill cotton for jeans, overalls, and other work andleisure garments. Dictionary.com
a similar fabric of finer quality, for covering cushions, furniture, etc. Dictionary.com
Jeans
hard-wearing trousers made of denim or other cotton fabric, for informal wear.
One of my favorite things to wear is denim. I can wear denim every day (hhhmmm different ways to wear denim for a week or month coming soon!) Denim comes in every price point. My favorite line of denim is from you guessed it Levi’s . Key word:DURABILITY.  You can never have too many pairs! I received my first pair of  Levi’s 501 Original jeans at 6 years old and never looked back. If you haven’t tried on a pair or don’t own a pair please do yourself a favorite buy a pair.

My Birthday

Over the weekend, Saturday January 14 to be exact I celebrated my 33rd birthday!!! I can’t believe how old I am and how far I have come. I remember being 13 wishing I was 21. I cherish every single birthday even more. I don’t want to be any older or younger. Well I would definitely relive some of my earlier fashion moments.

Every year I usually leave it up to my husband to plan the celebration, but I give hints on what I want to do. I never feel like he EVER listens to me (lol) so while in a mall one day I mentioned I would love to try one of these new paint and sip classes. Much to my surprise not only was he listening , but he surprised me with reservations to Paint and Sip Studio NY . The experience was one to remember !!

Now I’m sure you are wondering what did I wear? I said whether rain or shine I am wearing a black long slip dress, my favorite jeans and silver booties. Of course it started to snow extremely hard before leaving the house, but I didn’t care because it was my birthday!!! The dress I am wearing is by Cotton Candy LA and its suppose to look like this:

Being the stylist that I am I felt the dress was too simple for the occasion. So I went to M&J Trimming to purchase some ribbon. I then cut the ribbon in 6 pieces and tied it to the left shoulder of the dress. The dress was also too long for flats, I decided to cut the shoulder straps and simply tie them in knots according to the proper length. The straps look unfinished which went along with the theme of the rest of the dress. One of the hottest trends of 2017 will be wearing jeans under dresses which went perfect with my outfit. To pull the whole look together I wore my hair in 3 buns added NYX Cosmic Metals Lip Cream in Electromagnetic and NYX Cosmetics Vivid Brights Liner in Vivid Halo .

1 skirt + 3 ways

 

 

It is now February 4th, you are looking through your closet saying “I have nothing to wear.” You have a ton of holiday attire such as sequins, feathers, silk skirts and gowns , but not sure how to incorporate these items into your everyday look. Have no fear, The Hopeful Stylist is here!

“Sequin attire is only to be worn at night.” If styled right sequin can be worn during the day and at night. Here’s how: I purchased this pencil skirt in silver from Banana Republic and styled it as a day, fun weekend and evening look.

Unknown-1

Rule #1 You can wear a t-shirt with anything. T-shirts can be dressed casually or dressed up for an evening event. If you want to dress up a t-shirt add a statement necklace.

JCrew necklace|| Disney’s The Little Mermaid t-shirt

Jewelry

Topshop earrings

Disney’s The Little Mermaid is my favorite Disney movie ( I always cry at the end when she leaves her daddy) to keep with the theme of dressed up, yet fun I completed this look with a pair of Vivienne Westwood by Melissa shoes. I like the big red heart detail. FYI the shoes smell like bubble gum.

Whole Outfit

Rule#2 Sneakers can be worn with everything, within reason. Always use creative judgement when trying to add a pair of sneakers with a very dressy item. Adidas Superstar sneakers are easy to pair with any outfit.

What girl doesn’t love MAC Cosmetics ! I’m wearing Flat Out Fabulous Bright Plum Matte Lipstick and it is awesome. Very creamy, long wearing and a very bold color to add an extra pop to this outfit.

Sneakers

Adidas Superstar

To complete this casual weekend look and for those chilly days and nights…an Adidas track jacket. I attended the NBA All Star game last year and decided to purchase this track jacket to commemorate the event.

Rule #3 Heels go with EVERYTHING!!! Especially with a touch of leopard. I paired the same sequin skirt with Sam Edelman two toned studded heels.

Shoes

 

I love the subtleness of the black studs on the back of the shoes. It adds a little rockstar feel. My favorite jewelry are statement necklaces…. I styled this look with a Topshop black studded piece. Whenever you wear a chunky sweater and you want to give yourself a waist add a belt.

NYX cosmetics makes great vibrant lipsticks. The shade I am wearing is Twisted Bright Violet. Its high voltage and very moisturizing!

Have some fun and try these looks!

How to style a coat

I ABSOLUTELY love to wear color. Yes, I know I live in New York the city of all black, but when I wear color I come alive. My 2 favorite coats this season are from  Topshop and Banana Republic .

The Topshop colorful knee length faux fur is a “I am here” coat. I decided to style it with  Madewell  flare overalls, a white shirt and silver platform creepers. My 2nd favorite part of this outfit are the bobby pins from Forever 21. Instead of using just one I used all 4. I love how they are 4 different size pearls.

The Banana Republic three button citron green coat had to be styled with even more color. Of course the first option would be to style it with all black or just one other color, but why not have some fun with it! I kept the fabrication simple, the entire outfit is of silk….different shades of green. I added a touch of the color bordeaux with the tights and bag. To top off the outfit I paired it with black ankle strap platform creepers.
