Jacquard Lovin: NYFW

October 22, 2014

Oasis Winter Rose Jacquard Dress c/o | Blue DKNY handbag via Marshalls sold out  (same exact bag in black) | Silver Strappy Heels sold out (identical option) | Zero UV Blue Mirrored Sunnies (similar pair) | Statement Necklace old (similar option) | Lucite Bracelet old (similar option on sale!

Oh, New York. It is so much fun to reminisce. Let's throwback today to NYFW! Remember when I posted this teaser about one of my NYFW looks? Well it is finally on the blog!

I have always been partial to a great pattern/print, but it seems that lately I have been gravitating towards richly textured pieces. I wore a navy and white jacquard dress last week in the East vs. West series, and this week I am throwing it back to NYFW and sharing a little about this gorgeous Oasis Fashion dress I got to wear (that also happens to be jacquard).

I have been waiting to share this look with you for over a month! When I wore this for NYFW, it was a sample, and the actual dress was not yet available for purchase. I wanted to wait to post the look until the dress was available on Oasis' website... and today is your lucky day! 

This 2-in-1 dress was an awesome style to wear to fashion week. There is an actual dress that is the first layer (underneath), and the capelet goes over the top to give a crop-top sort of illusion. The back is my favorite part. Since it is open, it gives a peek of the exposed zipper in the back. I wore this the last day I was at NYFW, and I am glad I saved it since the temps dropped a bit. This dress is perfect for the fall and winter months because of its thick jacquard fabric. Although I wore it alone, it would look so cute with black opaque tights and booties! The rose print has a gorgeous silvery shine, too. This would be such a fun dress for an upcoming holiday party!

East Vs. West: Boots

October 21, 2014

Boots, leather and plaid - there is no better combo! I absolutely love this long babydoll plaid top paired with my faux leather leggings and black boots. The darker colors in the plaid top go great with black, and I envision wearing it with jeans, as well. These boots pair perfectly with my beloved black leggings, and the low stack heel make them perfect for all occasions (work and weekend). I am all about hats this fall and this one is a fantastic option (and super reasonable in price!) I love the steel blue color, it ended up matching my top perfectly.

Make sure to check out all of the other fab looks incorporating boots and booties for the fall season:

Marshalls Grand Opening: Hollywood

October 17, 2014

Guess what all 8 of these looks have in common? I am sporting #fabfound Marshalls items in all of them! 

I believe that there is nothing better than finding incredible designer fashion at a fraction of the price. I love the hunt, I love finding something unexpected and I especially love high-quality for less. This is why I am an avid Marshalls and TJ Maxx shopper, and a member of Project Fab! (Read more about Project Fab here). Whether I am looking for seasonal decor, a new pair of leather booties or I just have money to spend, I can always find something that I have to have at Marshalls.

I am so excited to let you know that there is a brand new Marshalls in town (literally)! Mark your calendar for October 22, when Marshalls opens a brand new Hollywood store on 7013 Hollywood Blvd. This new store will be stocked with brand-name and designer merchandise every single week. Nothing is better than a bright, fresh new store. This one even has a shoe megashop which will include designer footwear. I don't know if my wallet can handle the excitement. 

Want to come celebrate during the Grand Opening? Stop by Marshalls Hollywood on October 22 from 8:00am - 10:00pm. There will be giveaways, gift card prizes and more! With over 10,000 new items arriving to the Hollywood store every week, it’s like entering a whole new store with every visit. I can't wait to get over there to hunt down some amazing designer finds!

Moments of Chic

October 16, 2014

Piperlime Gathered Shirt Dress in Navy Floral c/o | Lulu*s Rhinestone Necklace c/o | Deux Lux Dark Green Crossbody Bag via Marshalls (similar option and similar option & color) | Piperlime Steve Madden Grrand Booties in Stone Leather c/o | Sole Society Aviators | Topshop Lipstick - Lips in Wicked

There are a few online retailers that I consistently find myself going back to, and Piperlime is always at the top of that list. I love the mix of high-end items and budget friendly ones. I always creep around Olivia Palermo's picks (she has amazing style & taste) and I can always find something on sale. When they reached out to me about participating in their Moments of Chic campaign, I leaped at the opportunity to feature more of their products on my blog.

Piperlime hand selected this look for me, and they seriously did an incredible job. When I opened the box, I immediately put this dress and these booties on and walked around the living room giddily modeling for John. This look is as close to my "signature look" as they could get!  There is nothing I feel more comfortable in than a chiffon printed dress and heeled booties.

This is the kind of dress that works for almost every occasion. It is seasonally versatile with its long sleeves and dark floral print. I could pair it with tights, throw a fur vest over it, or wear it on its own. I plan to wear this to work, but it is also the perfect weekend daytime dress with flats or boots - and can be easily dressed up with some pumps or heeled booties (like these gorgeous Steve Madden ones). I cannot wait to wear this dress over and over again!
