Spring 2017 warby parker eyeglasses

Hello my fellow chic bloggers,

As we are beginning to emerge into a new fashionable Spring season, which is literally around the corner! I wanted to inform you all about a beautiful trendy eyewear brand I have recently discovered called Warby Parker.

Let me just say that their Spring 2017 line is so chic, and it launched today. This line is affordable, durable, and is the best duo combination for daily eye wear. The best thing about these eyeglasses is that they can be worn from day to night, night to day with literally every outfit. 

I work in an office setting so eyeglasses are my preferred choice during the day but now that I discovered Warby Parker, I look forward to wearing my frames at night too! 
Spring is springing and you need to have these fabulous frames in your life. I know buying frames online can be tricky but Warby Parker makes it easy as pie with their Home Try-On Program. You can choose up to five frames for five days and they ship them to you for free both ways. No more buyers remorse! How awesome is that! This also gives you the opportunity to experience their customer service and products first hand, at no charge. Plus if you use the hashtag #WarbyHomeTryOn on Instagram or Twitter, the team can easily find your photos and comment on the styles they think suit you the best! I have included two pictures of my favorite styles Laurel 17 in Espresso Tortoise and the Caspar Rose water. They’re both so different but can easily accessorize your daily style looks.cbb8df11f2ff92a30eaef55e32bc8a1ea46b62c4.jpegaced0b41c1a0c64726c8c55cd75a9aefa334ea42.jpeg

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!

Stay Chic,

GNO. OOTD

Summer nights call for three things: girls night out, dressing ultra chic, and drinking an amazing cocktail. Check! Check! And check! Here’s what I wore…

1. Shirt– Celine Paris Tee from YKbeads … I always like to give my plain tee’s an extra something by rolling up the sleeves just a little. It gives it that extra flare don’t ya think?

2. Skirt — TopShop … What I obsessed most over this skirt was the length. I also love how it’s body hugging which shows my curves in such a flattering way. In addition its high waisted. My fav! Anything high waisted is such a good buy and extremely trendy.

3. Bag — Louis Vuitton Galleria Bag (limited edition)

4. Shoes — Jimmy Choo … I went with this leopard pair specifically. Because It brings out that edgy wild look that put the exact finishing touch to this plain look.

Remember ALWAYS Stay Chic,

Steph

90’s Fashion.

Fashion is feeling the 90’s all over again, and who’s to say that isn’t ah-may-zing. Especially because I was born in this era. 90’s baby right here. This grunge influenced decade is finally upon us once again. What’s there not to love about oversized band shirts, flannel’s around the waist, and my girl Cher Horwitz. As if! Soooo here are some how to tips and pics…

1. Thigh High’s & Knee Highs

I am obsessed with classic thigh highs. I have a couple pairs from American Apparel (recommend highly) in all different styles and colors, and I literally have a destroyed worn pair of sheer black one’s to the point of rips everywhere and I adore those the most. True 90’s look with a pair of Thigh high’s.

2. Band Tee’s

Oversized Band T-shirts are some true effect to the grunge look. Lately Forever 21 has tons of iconic band tee’s all over the store. Cheap and fashionable. Pair with black tight pants, shorts, or tights with a baggy denim jacket. Or for a more feminine girlie look a flowy short or long skirt. High slits are in super hot and extremely trendy right now. And showing a little extra skin never hurts anyone. Add on a cool pair of Converse or Dock Martins.

3. Plaid works

Anything plaid goes… We have been seeing it on the streets of fashionable cities across the world. And in my opinion no one can wear it better at the moment then Riri. This classic urban look with a flannel around your waist is super stylish. The plaid work shirt is totally trend worthy these days.

Stay 90’s,

Steph

LBD’s

ImageImageImageImageImage

Every girls needs THAT “little black dress” in her closet. It’s a must have. That chic edgy piece of cloth signifies your whole wardrobe. I’m way too obsessed with anything black. Me and Anna Wintour can never be besties. Seriously. This perfected piece can play a HUGE role in every season. It literally never goes out of style. From a elegant evening dress to cutesty cocktail dress it works. And it works itself good. The essentials of how to style is merely simple. 1. It styles itself. 2. During that cold fall slash wintery weather pair it with a modern blazer or a leather jacket with sheer tights. 3. Pumps, sandals, boots… It all can work. 4. Statement peices. Read my “Statement Piece” for more inside. 5. Add on that bright or very dark lip. And last but not least CONFIDENCE. Nothing is sexier then your high self esteem. Soooo this evening plan a GNO. Channel your inner Victoria Beckham put on that LBD and have a fun fabulous night looking beyond gorge.

Stay posh,

Steph.

Stripes Galore.

Stripes are way maj this year. Horizontal or vertical literally it does not matter. The contrasting colors as well give any extra flare to the air… Stripes on stripes on stripes are a true statement upon us this summer. Whether your style is classic, boho-chic, preppy, glam, or grunge there is a stripe look just for you. On the contrary it compliments ALL bodies types. Could this simplest design get any chicer? Oh no honey. Don’t think so. I love everything. Stripes are everything. And if your craving a jumbo statement then try this trend out.

Stay chic beyond belief,

Steph.

Gold.

I’m so gaga for gold. Literally obsessed! I could accessorize head to toe in gold jewelry, but remember everything in moderation. So on that note… Rings, earrings, necklaces, bracelets, or watches can pull together the plainest of outfits. For example… Wear a chucky piece of gold around your neck line with a LBD. Or a chinese collar with a tee or a maxi dress. Maj. Pair bold goldy earrings as a single accessory for that minimal look. Add a watch on for that sexy arm candy. Last but not least. Rings! Rings! Rings! Are my ultra fav. Stack on as many as you want without looking like a total gypsy. Knuckles included. Gold is that instant pick of adding a dash of luxury. So always trendy. Hope these styling tips help.

Stay Golden, XOXO.

Steph.
