Sleeve Rolling.

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Rolling your T-shirt sleeves isn’t really a trend more of a preference look but I love it. Even though I have been noticing more and more celebs and fashion bloggers are starting to do it. I think it adds a fashionable finishing touch to the simplicity look of just a basic tee. It’s so nonchalant and easy. It may seem simple, but your sleeve rolling has to be on point. Tips how too… First roll on that first seem, and repeat again. The sleeve should be rolled 2-3 time but no more, over 4 times makes it look overly bulky which kills the look. Pay attention to my picture inspo up top of Karlie Kloss, Alexa Chung, fashion blogger Sincerly Jules, and etc for more examples. Go for a casual look by rolling up your sleeve with a pair of jean shorts or skinny jeans which creates that perfect little chic look. An 80’s flash back look with a bang bang. Now roll up.

Stay Chic. XOXO,

Steph

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

Floral Crowns have become such a chic hair accessory and a HUGE statement piece. They may have started as a music festival trend but if you ask me there here to stay giving any outfit that blossoming finishing touch. Making your own personal crown does take time and work, but at least it’s unique and your individuality shows through. Or buy pre made one at TopShop, Urban Outfitters, and surprisingly lately Forever 21. I know they can be a “little to out there” but heres a way to tone it down… Just a little. Purchase a headband with smaller flowers so its not too dramatic. Another trick is to wear it a little further towards the back of your head so you don’t have that overload dominating effect look. Add a perfect little bohemian touch to your everyday street style or in April more excitingly for Coachella. Cant wait!

Stay Floral,

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.
