Sweater Weather.

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageTis the season of sweaters. I am so obsessed they defiantly are my favorite piece of clothing in the fall. Sweaters are one of the easiest things to wear this time of year throw on a pair of ankle boots and dark denim skinny jeans and walk out the door for an everyday cozy look. Or a sweater slash skirt combo for that contemporary look. Even top designers have jumped on this knitted band wagon. I myself went a little sweater weather crazy yesterday at H&M… Honestly you can never have enough sweaters to feel cozy, trendy, and ultra fashionable.

Hillbilly chic is back. Overalls are EVERYWHERE. Don’t you wish you never gotten rid of your cutesy denim one piece way back in the day. Oh well… This fashion forward trend has fine tuned in with designers remixed with cool fabrics, grungy colors, and eye popping silhouettes. Are you afraid of looking more like a farmer than a mega stylish fashionista? Here are some Do’s…

Do cuff the legs and leave one hook undone with a pair of oxfords or converse.

Do try it with a striped casual tee for a french girl flair. Tres chic!

Do toss on a peacoat and ballerina flats.

Do skip off the denim on occasion and go a little dressy in sweet patterned print overalls.

Do pops of color overalls it’s totally current balanced with a shorter length.

Do a tapered leg with a cropped length it’s impeccably stylish and on-trend especially when worn with booties or high heels.

On that note… Don’t forget to include overalls into your fall wardrobe… Your inner child will thank you!

Working In The Office.

Some people think it’s excusable to not look chic at the day in the office. Let me tell you little hunnies thats no accuse. Being stylish is a 24/7 must! Showing up to your office job in baggy Slacks, your grandma’s sweater or silly little kitty heels is not acceptable period. So here some item pieces that essential to have in the closet if your in office…

Pencil Skirts


Pencil skirts are maj in the office. The are classic, sexy, and sophisticated, and totally appropriate. 



Blouses are perfect to tuck into tight trendy slacks and pencil skirts.



Who says you have to always take the boring way out… Throw on some fun trendy colored, patterned, laced slacks. Or spice up the black pair by rolling up the bottom cuff. Remember just like the rest of your clothes don’t over do “baggy”. Its. NOT. Cute! Always have your pants or jeans fit you like a glove much more flattering this way. 



During the fall and winter jackets are necessity part of the wardrobe. Or if the office is an icebox all year long blazers, tweed jackets, and boyfriend jackets are super trendy right now and overall have that professional appeal to them. 

Hope these inspired pics and recommended pieces help for spicing up your office look.

Wedding. OOTD.

This weekend was very eventful. Went to a wedding with the fam and had a blast. All the ladies and gents got glammed for a big fat Assyrian wedding. What I wore… And also featuring my other favorite best dressed girls from the event. Image

Dress: Jovani

I LOVED this dress. It was mellow yellow with satin and chiffon incorporated throughout the dress trimmed with a gorgeous beading work from top to bottom even along the train that I french boussiled with a high slit. It looked sexy, and I completely felt it.


Jackie Sengul

Dress: Tadashi

I love love love this dress. My BEST dressed of the night defiantly goes to Jackie. She wore this nude Tadashi dress with a gold lace. The lace layered over the top half with a semi high neck and cap lace sleeves. It gathered in the middle that let the bottom half of the dress flow so beautiful.


Robyn Tekin

Dress: Jovani

This dress was so different and so edgy. Love the color of the gown… Black. (my favorite color) And loved the abstracted gold beads and studs on top that pulled up into the high neck. It’s tight to about the midline then flows out a with the high slit that bared some skin. And who doesn’t like to see a little leg here and there. Robyn finished the look with a plum lip, fur scarf, and pointy heels. She worked it!


Joceline Tekin

Dress: ASOS

This look was the definition of glitter and glam. It was a dark cherry red with long sleeves and the trendy midline length. Jocie then dressed it gold jewels and Valentino heels. This dress was so fun yet so elegant, and is totally great for the holiday events that are coming up this fall and winter.


Kristy Peltecki

Dress: Zac Posen

This dress was amazing. It was emerald green that had a cinched sweatheart. It flared into a semi mermaid dress with again the also trendy midline length. It was tight, sexy, and completely classy. Kristy kept it simple with a classic pair of pumps by Brain Atwood.


Petra Tekin

Dress: Jovani

I love a sexy lady in red. And that was exactly Petra in this gown. This dress is very different. The fabric consisted of silk and sheer. The color was a bright cherry red and on top was a lace pattern that had beading and Swarovski crystals to give it that glitzy look with a high slit.


Joann Rizik

Dress: Sherri Hill

This look was old Hollywood glam. It was navy blue with broken mired crystals going down the dress right above the high slit. It looked absolutely stunning on joann with the perfect old Hollywood hair to match. She kept it simple by accessorizing light with just a diamond bracelet and a nude Chanel Clutch.



Estee Tekin

Dress: Terrani Couture

This dress was so so chic. It was a party on top with an alluring sparkling beads. I love a sexy bandage dresses and this fabric was a perfect accent to balance the top. This is what I call a perfect little black dress. It was tight and seductive and Estee flaunted it well. I loved that she wore her hair up in an updo to show off the detailed structured sleeves. She accessorized light with a ring and wore a slight pop of color maroon pumps by Christian Louboutin.


Lidia Tekin

Dress: Sherri Hill

Hello Glamorous… This yellow dress was charismatic and captivating. It was a classic sweetheart mermaid dress with a little twist. Sequins on top and chiffon mermaid skirt on the bottom. I loved how it ombre’d from white, to a mild yellow, to the sheer bold yellow tones. It looked perfect on Lidia’s flawless skin tone. I love how she wore bold statement pieces of a two gold jeweled bracelets, flashy earrings, and gold clutch. And ending the look off with a nice bright pink lip.


Christine Aydin

Dress: Kay Unger from Saks Fifth Avenue

This one sleeved Lavender dress was fabulous. It had an abstracting pattern throughout the dress with Swarovski crystals enchanting this couture piece. It was tight and flattering from head to toe. Christine looked amazing in her beautiful side updo and matching lavender nails. She wore a nude clutch and a pair of earrings. Not only did she wear her dress amazingly but she also dazzled us with a girls best accessory her beautiful smile.


Juliet Malki

Dress: Jovani

One word… STUNNING! Literally Drop. Dead. Gorgeous. I loved Juliet in this baby pink gown that was jeweled and beaded from top to bottom. I loved how the designer focused on bold crystal belt around her tiny waist that appealed so seductive with the ultra chic high slit. She semi pulled her hair half up showing off the radiant sweetheart cut and gorge drooping diamond necklace. She kept it simple and sweet and let the dress do all the talking.


Linda Aydin

Dress: Jovani

You can always count on a mermaid dress to make a statement especially this hot pink form fitting one. It had a simplicity design of silver beading to about the waist line that was done tastefully. The mermaid style shape is not for everyone but this flared silhouette looked impeccable on Linda. She stood out with her own artlessly touches of a silver clutch, and two jewelry pieces of a white gold diamond pendant necklace and matching bracelet. Diamonds are a girls best friend. So stay calm and glitter on.

Hope you loved these fabulous looks just as much as I did. And let me know in a comment who was your favorite!
