Little Black Dress


On a recent holiday in Hawaii I was invited to an event that would require dressy attire. I was excited at the invite, but hadn't  packed anything fancy. I had only a couple of days to find the right dress and accessories that would work. I didn't want to spend a ton of money on a new outfit, since I had plenty of dresses at home, so I hit up my favorite bargain store- Forever 21! I was in search for a simple black dress. Black is always chic, and can be easily dressed up or down. After passing over several racks, my heart leapt when I saw a basic black dress for only $12.80! The dress fit great, and would work for the event. It was also an item I could actually wear on the rest of my Hawaiian getaway. With the right accessories I dressed the ensemble up! c950x609

Mixing high and low peices are key in making an outfit look expensive vs. cheap. I paired the bargain dress with a pair of earrings from Banana Republic, a gold and diamond bracelet from Macys, and some black patent leather Steve Madden shoes. A clutch always makes an outfit in my opinion. Since I didn't pack one on this trip, I improvised and used my Cynthia Rowley wallet! It's shape resembles a clutch so I am able to get a lot of use out of it.



The moral of the story is always be prepared! Pack a basic dress that can be dressed up or down on your trips. Accessories are key. Make sure you pack a versatile selection that will help make the most of your vacation attire.


Happy Styling!

How To Wear: The Arm Party


The arm party has graced the pages of countless magazines. It is fun, edgy, and oh so stylish! If your new to this trend, here are some tips to get you up and running. Start out with a watch and build from there. Gold is safe when you are first starting out, it goes with everything.


Next, add one thin bracelet and one larger bracelet.

You can wear this look or you can keep adding! A mix of chunky and thin bracelets work well together.

Another way to wear the arm party is to take a color from your outfit and incorporate it into your bracelets.

Try mixing textures in your arm party. Leather is a great option. Add a couple of rings and it completes the look.

There are countless ways to throw an arm party, these are just a few pointers to get the ball rolling. I have created a pinterest board here to further assist you in creating this look. Forever 21 is a great place to build your bracelet collection. They are affordable and have a great selection. Target also offers "arm parties in a box" where you can purchase an entire look. Michael Kors makes a fabulous gold watch, but you can also find less expensive watches at stores like Target. You do not have to spend a fortune to rock this trend.
