Black and Yellow in RVN and Zara

YB-COVERIf there’s one color I’m crazy about this Summer, it’s yellow!  The high vibration energy yields a head turning effect.  Some of you may think I look like a bumble bee, a super hip bumble bee of course… But hear me out.  I wanted to try something new.  Since black and white has become the new “black”, I opted for something edgy.  This two toned chevron fit-n-flare dress was perfect for cocktail hour, followed by dinner with friends.  Because it just wouldn’t be “me” if I didn’t try something new, I luckily had the most perfect, LOUD, (busy is an understatement) heels that I just HAD to wear.

Zara has been on point lately.  The heavy high fashion influence has been killing it. Especially in women’s shoes.  So, I just gave up my big secret, the shoes are ZARA.  I know, you’re shocked.  I was too when I slipped them on my feet.  As I have preached before, there is nothing that says style more, than being able to pull off a budget babe look by mixing your highs with your lows.  Not everything has to be designer. Because, well, we can’t all afford designer.  So, Zara will do just fabulous in the meantime.

Ok, you are probably wondering how I rocked such a chaotic and overstated look in San Diego.  Simple folks, It’s better to be over-dressed than under-dressed.  I leave the door with the intent to be my own walking billboard.  Which in return will hopefully encourage my readers and clients to try new things.  Remember, fashion is a reflection of you.  There aren’t any rules. I may have a few VERY STRONG opinions, but there aren’t any rules.  Just remember, whatever you wear, wear it with confidence!

Ciao Babes, Im late for my cocktail! xo

**Side note about jacquard and chevron prints**

Certain jacquard can be heavy and bunch at times.  Make sure you size down.. There’s an abundance of lycra in the fabrication which causes the dress to naturally stretch out.  Also, chevron prints can be a bit much.  To break up the busyness, try a solid blazer that compliments the color way in your outfit.  You can also accessorize by choosing a dominant color in the dress and pair it with a matching handbag and pumps.

Heading to a chic event?  Well then this is the outfit for you!  I was off to the Promises to Kids event hosted by Jimmy Choo to support foster children of San Diego.  Incredible charity to get involved with.  Click here to learn more.

I needed a fashion forward look that kept a professional feel.  I knew clients of mine would be attending this event so I layered on as much as I could to be my own walking billboard. lol.  Blush is just melting my heart this season.  I’m more and more drawn to blush pink as a neutral color that compliments EVERY hue!  I had this pencil skirt and crop top already in mind but didn’t really know what jacket to wear.  I’m not one who does “conservative” too well but I definitely know how to keep it classy.  Thankfully this beautiful lace/ leather combo jacket arrived  this afternoon so I tried it.  I love the way the jacket made the outfit!  Naturally, I rocked the heck out of it and grabbed a blush pink clutch to compliment the soft undertones in the jacket.  I was really feeling my new Gucci Ursula pumps but thought It would be offensive to not wear something to support the brand endorsing the event.  I changed into a white strappy Jimmy Choo pump and was off to shop for a cause!

Model Behavior

When are we not obsessed with Kate Moss?  Um, NEVER!  We just got in this mega-babe tee with Kate Moss’ beautiful face screen printed right onto it.  Because graphic tees are the rage right now and Kate Moss is always the rage, this graphic tee did right by me.  I was heading to see One Republic and The Script in concert and wanted a rocker hip swag with a concert cool feel.  We had bad ass seats, front and almost center, ahem, not that I’m bragging… Did I say front and almost center. Ok, so my point is, who sits when you have such good seats?  Not me, I’m jamming and dancing to the tunes all night, thank you very much!  As any smart fashionable girl would do, I wore my two toned Balenciaga wedges because heels are trying too hard and who wants to wear heels for hours at a concert… Only silly girls. GROUPIES!

Alright, besides my graphic tee I rocked some seriously distressed denim and layered my favorite designer leather jacket.  I have to touch on the jacket.  It was one of my first like, hip, designer pieces my mom got for me in New York when I was 15.  Ya, I’ve had it since I was 15 and because fashion repeats itself every 15-20 years, it’s now hip and I’m now OLD. Cool….  So, A big hell yes for this black and white paneled leather jacket.  I think I like it more now than I did when I first got it.

To complete my black and white style, I wore some green-mirrored sunnies and accessorized with some mixed metal jewelry.

FYI:  If you haven’t seen these guys in concert yet, you are truly missing out.  Incredible performance by both bands.  Check out their latest album on Itunes.

Peace babes.

Resort-Ready in Noemii

resort-readyVacay ready in this sizzling summer cover-up by Noemii.  Everyone went gaga over this beauty!  The leaf silk print is eye catching with its various bold hues of green and turquoise.  I decided this summer to pick vibrant colors to compliment my skin tone.  Shades of green are universal when it comes to who can wear this sharp hue.  Emerald green in particular is such a statement, rich color that compliments every hair and skin tone known to man!

If you are traveling to an exotic Island or sitting poolside at a luxurious resort, an absolute MUST-HAVE is a chic cover up.  Wheather your preference is a transparent silk kimono or a flowy kaftan, definitely stock up on these easy to wear, throw on and go cover-ups.  Dressing up your hottie-tottie bikini is a nice way to show your sophistication without looking like you’re trying too hard.    Make your beach babe style effortless and attainable.  Don’t be that girl in sky high loubis, full face of make-up and perfectly polished hair, you look silly.  Opt for an Au naturel look.  A fresh face and effortless style its much more appealing to your guy and onlookers.  TRUST ME!

Ok, so let me get back on track.. I’m sharing a fabulous brand find with you guys so if you haven’t yet, PAY ATTENTION and check out Noemii Resort wear.  London based and out of this world, Noemii, found the perfect way to combine a lifestyle into a brand.  The luxe fabrication and artistic prints are sure to stand out amongst the trendsetting crowd.  I’ve already brought mine poolside in Morocco, beaching in Florida and she’s packed for my trip to Cancun!  This will be a summer staple and a travel essential for my warm weather vacays this holiday.

Cheers Babes!
