One dress, 2 looks

Hello my lovelies,

I wrote about slip dresses before and I like the most about them is that you can put together a super stylish outfit and you’ll look like you didn’t try hard at all.

For today’s post I used this super cute asymmetric slip dress and create two separate looks.

For the first look I decided to throw over a fluffy and cozy pullover, that I loved how it look with the slinky slip dress underneath. I Believe that the contrast between the materials was the key for this styling and the only requirement that’s left, it was to add a pair of booties to finish the look.

For the second look, I replaced the sweater with a biker jacket. I’m not a super big fan of wearing high heels with my slip dresses, because I like to dress them down a little, that’s the reason why I kept the booties. I chose this silver biker jacket, because I really like the effect that was created together with the shimmery of the dress.

How to wear your oversized jacket as a dress

Hello my lovelies,

In today’s post, I’ve created a look with this gorgeous oversized jean jacket. I have styled it different in this post, so if you want to see how it looks, check it out.

Being an oversized jacket, is super versatile and can be mixed with almost everything in your closet: dresses, skirts, pants and why not, even with jeans.

The slouchy look of it, makes it also perfect for some serious layering in the cold season.

In today’s post, I want to show you that if you are out of ideas, or in a “I don’t have anything to wear” moment, even a jacket can be worn as a dress.

For this particular jacket, I think you need to add a belt to accentuate your waist, so you avoid the boxy look given by the jacket. I told you in a previous post that I like to style everything with a brooch so I decided that this belt looked awesome with this cute spider brooch.

The stockings and the boots gives the perfect rock-ish look to the entire outfit.

I hope you have a great evening and thanks for stopping by.

XoXo, OD

A-line skirt for fall

Hello my lovelies,

A-line skirts are a must have this fall season. What I like the most, when we talk about a A-line skirt, is the fact that it gives you a retro touch with a 60’s vibe.

A-line are very easy to style and wear, because they have a versatility that can flatter any body shape.

The A-line skirt that I wear in the pictures, I think is perfect for the cold season because the material is thick and also textured, so you can pull out an outfit with it even in the winter… you just need to add a pair of opaque stockings and you are ready to go, my dear.

For fall, usually we see this skirts paired with booties or over the knee boots, but you already know that my favorite alternative for those is a pair of socks and platforms.

Because I kept my outfit in the black-white-navy color scheme, I decided to throw a pair of bold green platforms (now on sale for under 50$) mixed with some red socks as a “out of the ordinary” touch. I know it’s not for everybody, but if you are in the mood one day to go a little crazy, do it! Trust me, it is fun!

Band T-shirt dress trend

Hello my lovelies,

The band T-shirt trend was huge in the 90s and it was basically the urban groupie definition.. If then, the trend was to wear them with ripped jeans, flannel shirt over and motorcycle boots, now, when they had such a big comeback, there are no fashion boundaries. Pair them with feminine accessories, high heels or even pencil skirt to get the ultimate street style.

Lately, I’m all about the low maintenance grunge look (especially that I was super sick when I took this pictures, so I needed something that didn’t require too much effort from me), but I think that a band T-shirt dress looks more badass than never.

With this look, I tried to bring a little bit of the 90s Seattle scene into present… I think I did a pretty good job 🙂

How do you like to style your band T-shirt or dresses?

Have an amazing week,

How to wear socks and high heels

Hello lovelies,

In today’s post, I want to talk about how we wear our elegant high heels with socks.

NO! NO! NO! I’m definitely not talking about the tourist “faux pas” socks and sandals :).

Before we knew that almost “everything is allowed” in fashion, (I said ALMOST, because there is a thin line between an outstanding styling and ridiculous) we were wearing socks only with our athletic shoes at the gym, or to do a quick run to the grocery store. Now, that sounds really boring and flat, compared with how much fun you can have when styling your high heels with socks. It is not a new trend at all, but I have a feeling that we’ll start to see it more often again.

I have to say it though, the socks and high heeled sandals are a combination that fashion conservatives tend to stay away from.

It is one of my favorite styling tricks for fall, because I don’t want to wear only boots when the air starts to be a little bit crispy. In my crazy mind, sometimes I think that heeled sandals were invented as an opportunity to show off your socks :))

A really nice contrast is mixing sporty socks (with athletic stripes) and your feminine high heels to bring the whole outfit on the casual side, wearing a pair of lurex or even glitter socks will give a little extra something to the entire outfit.

For this outfit, I chose a pair of thick over the knee socks, that I didn’t pull all the way up, so it will match the volume that I created in the top of my outfit with the chunky casual-elegant hoodie.

How to wear a kimono with jeans

Hello lovelies,

We see it in the window of every store right now- the trendy kimono. Patterned usually with lots of flowers in bloom, or even palm trees fronds, it is incredibly appealing and you definitely can be temped by the fabulous print, but are we ready to wear it outside?

I told you before that I’m totally digging the pijama trend, which I think is totally stylish, so of course I love the kimono’s but the last thing that we want is to look like we forgot to take off our loungewear robe.

Styling a kimono it is really simple and requires the most basic attire: a T-shirt and some skinny jeans.

If you want to create an outfit using a kimono as your center piece, you should give the entire look the idea of effortless, like the kimono is was thrown on careless. Personally, I wouldn’t recommend trying to match the design, or adding more layers than the jeans and a T-shirt, because your entire look will look over-thought, which is exactly the opposite of an “I didn’t try too much” outfit.

How do you wear yours?

Get your Gingham game on

Hello my lovelies,

The power of gingham print, was back strong in the game this season: from skirts to swimwear, in the form of a ruffled blouse, or a off-the-shoulder dress, we’ve seen it everywhere.

No matter in which category your personal style fits, I`m sure that there is out there a gingham piece that will suit your taste.

Even if seems so much fun to wear a gingham pattern item, it’s still a print, so it can be tricky to style, especially if you are not into the girly girl type of look.

When I saw this super cute wrap blouse, I immediately decided to get it because it is a combination of 3 trends that I’m totally loving right now: pearls, gingham pattern and ruffled sleeves.

I enjoyed a lot how the whole outfit came together, pairing the blouse with this flare pants, in this gorgeous blush color… it just makes the shirt and the pattern to stand out more.

I’m still in the hunt for the perfect gingham skirt, so I hope that the trend is not going anywhere soon. I would enjoy to play a little bit more and have fun creating unique outfits with this print.

Have a great weekend babes, XO!

Floral Romper

Hello my lovelies,

I really enjoyed seeing girls wearing rompers, because they are a simple choice that you can`t go wrong with. We find them in all lengths, shapes, fabrics, patterns… girl, you have a big variety to choose from.

I wanted a short romper so, my only problem was that I couldn’t find one to fit me right and not make my feet look like two sticks ( I know they are not far from that, but still).

When I saw this cute romper at Zara, I could’ve bet that it will not work for me…well, I had a big surprise in the fitting room… I loved it. I like the flower pattern and the little ruffles on the shoulders. To run around the city, on a hot Cali summer day, I chose to wear it with a pair of flat sandals, but it will look as gorgeous with a pair of high heels for a night out.

I really hope that I can find more jumpsuits/rompers to fit me, because I enjoy their comfortability and the fact that you can create a sharp outfit with no effort.

If you choose a monochromatic romper you can definitely go heavy with the accessories, but if your romper has an interesting pattern, you will need very little accessorizing and your outfit is ready. Go and rock the day my dear!
