The Frayed Jean and the Square Toe Boot

These jeans are everything I’ve been searching for. I’ve been needing more black jeans lately and undoubtedly I was in desperate need of a statement hem on my jeans. The frayed jean look is fun and city chic. Per usual I am rocking the high-waisted style which helps elongate my legs. I paired them with my mock-neck shirt from Asos and my brand new boots from River Island.

I don’t know what it is about patent leather boots, but I am immediately attracted to them. I was looking for a new boot with a mid-level heel and a square toe. A square toe is extremely in style right now and I was so excited to find my dream pair from River Island.

I also threw on this gray cardigan sweater from Eliza Plume Boutique it is so cozy and very sleek looking for a cardigan. It has more structure like a jacket versus a normal slouchy cardigan. It definitely gives your outfit a more polished look rather than a more relaxed one.

Jacket Fire with Gamiss

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

I got this jacket from Gamiss and it can really pull together a winter look. I paired it with my Zara skirt and Pink Haley handbag for a somewhat monochrome look. I loved the way this outfit photographed.

Feel free to check out Gamiss here for some amazing finds at killer prices and as always check out Pink Haley for some handbags that you won’t see anywhere else. Please don’t mind my bruise…yikes.

Ciao.

Statement Sleeves with Zaful

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

A statement sleeve. This trend came into 2016 with a bang and will be definitely sticking around for 2017. There is something about a statement sleeve that just adds an extra bit of chic to your outfit, not to mention it’s a head turner. This statement top is from Zaful, it is truly amazing with the wrap around front and bow accent to make it extra special. Moving on to the sleeves now, let’s talk about tiers. This triple-tiered sleeve adds so much extra volume to the top, it is fantastic. If you find yourself at a dinner party, like I did, every time you reach across the table you get a few stares. This also leads into the cautionary rules of not getting your sleeve in the olive oil dipping sauce in the middle of the table.

This Zaful top comes at such an unbelievable price, $30.99. Zaful really knows how to make a fashion girl’s heart flutter with the prices and look of this top. Feel free to check them out here.

Boho Dreams: Paisley Tunic with Eliza Plume

paisley-dress-copy

This paisley tunic by Eliza Plume has fulfilled my boho dreams. I love how flowy the top is with such an accentuated neckline. The deep-V neckline lays so nicely and is even more flattering with the button-down detail. The buttons go down three inches above your belly button and the sleeves have a bishop style. The tunic goes fabulously with a black pair of jeans and a flat boho hat.

Eliza Plume has some amazing clothes on their site. They are trendy, classic and cute. Not only are they an amazing boutique, but they do amazing things. This quarter they are donating a portion of their proceeds to the Special Olympics in their area. Be sure to check out their site here as well as the paisley tunic here.

JORD Wood Watches and Giveaway

wood-watch

I am obsessing over this wood watch. I received it from JORD watches and I get so many compliments on it. Such beautiful craftsmanship goes into these watches. The watches are all made of wood sourced from 14 different kinds of trees. These include: Acacia, Bamboo, Ebony, Golden Camphor, Koa, Kasso, Maple, Olive, Purple Heart, Rosewood, Sandalwood, Walnut and Zebrawood. The price ranges from $139 to $295.

The women’s watch that I received is the Fieldcrest Maple. I loved the color of this unique watch. I definitely love lighter tones. The clasp was interesting to figure out at first, but taking it off and putting it on is so easy once you figure it out. Other watches I have had get worn from fastening the belt and the metal detailing gets scratched on basically everything I touch. The wood does not scratch like other metal watches and the wood does not fade like leather-band watches. This is such an amazing watch made from amazing material.

Here is their site and a link to my watch. They are also doing a GIVEAWAY  for $100 off a watch of your choice, but everyone who enters will receive $25 off. Click this link and fill out the form to win! Giveaway ends January 29th at midnight.

Second Skin Overalls by We Wore What’s Danielle Bernstein

second-skin-overalls

I can not tell you how absolutely ecstatic I am to have received a pair of Second Skin Overalls from one of my favorite fashion blogs, We Wore What. I had been telling my family and especially my sister all about them when they launched. I recently entered a giveaway on her Instagram and I won a pair of overalls. So my $240 pair of overall dreams came true.

I selected the High Rise Flare. I must tell you it was such a toss up between these and the Jumpsuit. Although the Jumpsuit is such a killer piece, I could only see myself wearing it a few times and then feeling like it was over worn. With the High Rise Flare, I have been able to wear them multiple times in many different ways. I wore it with an off-the-shoulder top, with a t-shirt and with nothing underneath. The nothing underneath is definitely a going-out look and may give you the tiniest bit of side boob. Needless to say I covered up with a bomber jacket that day.

I absolutely recommend investing in a pair of these, they are so stretchy and warm. Thankfully, they are super accommodating for us long torso girls too. The only thing is that they are a little long. I have the legs of a girl who is about 5’6″, but I am actually 5’8″ and I definitely wear a two-inch-heel boot with these overalls. I really should wear a three-inch heel though.

I can not thank the We Wore What team enough for my new closet staple.

How to Make Your Not So Casual Piece, Casual

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

This ruffled off-the-shoulder metallic bodysuit from Chi Chi London is the ultimate statement piece. The bodysuit is from the holiday collection and I undoubtedly wore this on New Year’s Eve as well, with a faux fur skirt. The next question is how can I take my extraordinary outfit into something I can wear more ordinarily? My solution pair your statement top with a muted bottom. More specifically a high-waisted pair of faded black jeans. This allows the look to be wearable for drinks with friends or out for a nice dinner.

Another point to be made about bodysuits, is that high-waisted pants are you friend not foe. About a month ago a girl came up to me when I was working at Victoria’s Secret. She did not understand how to wear a bodysuit. She was concerned about her stomach looking weird in a bodysuit. I told her, that’s what high-waisted pants are for. This allows any-sized girl to feel comfortable in a bodysuit.

Chi Chi London is an amazing retailer with perfect formal wear. The dresses are so feminine and beautiful for any occasion. Definitely a retailer to check out for formal wear or a night out. Visit their site here.

Longline Coat Giveaway with Gamiss

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

Can you really go through winter without a fantastic looking coat? This coat is so soft and so perfect for the season. The color and shape give this coat a sophisticated-winter look. I paired this coat with a casual work-chic dress from Zaful. The coat from Gamiss was about $30, a great price for such an amazing looking piece.

I am a very big fan of playing with proportions in an outfit. With the longline coat and the mini dress it adds a bit of an extra something to the look that catches your eye. This look is perfect for work or the weekend, but the jacket could really go with anything.

Specifically the jacket has a nice smooth lining and pockets to bundle yourself up. There is no front closure so it is more of an open-look coat. This helps to accentuate your look, but I wouldn’t wear it if you were planning to walk outside with it for a cold-windy day.

I’m excited to be doing a giveaway with this jacket to start off the new year. Rules can be found on my Instagram post here.

Make sure to check out the Gamiss site as well here.

Jumpsuits Are Everything with SammyDress

 

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

This jumpsuit is absolutely to die for. I mean I usually am terrified of ordering skin tight jumpsuits due to my long torso issues, but this photographed so well. I ordered it in an XL, which I highly recommend because it is quite tight otherwise. The drawstring waist gave me the perfect shape. I paired it with  SammyDress’s cape sweater and styled it so that it showed off a sweetheart neckline. The outfit together was gold.

The cape sweater was a little confusing when I got it, you had to wrap it around twice before putting your arms in. It was also at more of crop top length, just in case you plan on wearing it without some high-waisted pants.

The jumpsuit is just extremely versatile in that you can style it in many ways. Off-the-shoulder is definitely a trend to pair this overall-like jumpsuit with, but you could also try a collared button down or long-sleeve crop top.

Sammy Dress has some seriously cute pieces, that you can mix and match just like this. Feel free to check out their site and Facebook.

Cher Horowitz Would Approve of Sweet Fairy Shop

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

This outfit is so killer with the two piece set from Sweet Fairy Shop. Reminiscing in my favorite 90’s movies, I realize there is quite a resemblance between my ensemble and the ever iconic Cher Horowitz ensemble. With the muted gray towns and modern grid pattern, this outfit is so fashionable with its neutral take on things. Adding the bomber jacket really helped modernize the look even more.

The fit is fantastic, usually it’s a bit longer hem line than I like to wear, but it looks gorgeous on. Sweet Fairy Shop has some great structure to all of its outfits. Go check out their site here for more feminine and sweet looks. Don’t forget to use my discount code, “SassOfStyle” to receive 10% off at checkout. Happy Shopping! xx
