Just remember for those of you in the warmer weather, stores down south do not carry as much winter items and will sale out fast. So if you are planning that trip in February, don’t wait until then to get your cold weather items b/c they will be gone.

Red HOT Stilettos- for every season

Budget Friendly Red Heels/Stilettos

IMG_3515~photo-full

Fall is all about adding color and RED is the “it “color.  “Be BOLD” I say and “make the outfit POP” by adding a bright RED SHOE.  Although in Florida, we are still in hot temperatures of summer, I can still add a spice of BOLD to any outfit with a great heel for any season.

Rather I am wearing a dress or shorts my RED BOTTOMS make a statement.   I love my Christian Louboutin red bottom heels for this look since it is red on red. They are an easy addition to any outfit to give it a pop of color.

Marled Tank Dress

Grab this $12 thermal ribbed tank dress before it is too late…

For me I love a tank dresses since it is not much to think about in the early mornings before I have had time to have my coffee, or I am showering quickly after yoga and need to pick up my son from school.   This marled tank dress is effortless.  It is easy to just throw on and run some errands or head to the mall for a try on session, there are no layers on, easy on easy off.

The dress is two toned ribbed style along with a scoop neck.  Your will bra will fit perfect underneath it since it is a tank style.  The dress frames the body and allows you to move around comfortable.

This dress is a wear now dress for warmer climates or add some booties & sweater to give it a fall feel due to the thermal texture of the material.

Designer Inspired Shoes

l love designer shoes and handbags and I am fortunate enough to be able to splurge on these items. However, they are not always in every one’s budget. There are many brands that get inspiration from top designers which allows for a similar shoe for a lot less the cost.  Some call this a dupe or knock off.  Here I am linking a few of my favorites designer shoes but a lot less the cost that you could buy from DSW.

This shoe is offered in 4 colors, Cream, Black, red, and blush. Sizes are selling out so this shoe wont last long. It is defiantly worth checking out other shoes by Jessica Simpson at DSW since they carry a great selection.

Another Valentino inspired dupe that I found at DSW by Marc Fisher and is also offered in 5 colors.

Little White Dress & The Secret Piece

If you are like me then you love a little white dress until you look in the mirror and it is see through.

When I was younger it was called a “slip” that you would put underneath a dress.  Some may say  “under garment” other may use the term “shapewear” but it all sounds a bit mature to say it politely. I like to call it the “secret pieces.” It creates a mystery feeling and evokes a play attitude. No matter what I am wearing I always want to feel confident and a bit sexy. So rather I am wearing something white and don’t want my outfit to be see through or I just need a little extra support I need to have options.

I am sure many of you have heard of Spanx and yes this will do the trick but what if you don’t need all that extra control.  I  personal am not a fan of Spanx and some of you may love it and that’s ok. We are all entitled to own opinions.  I do love Wolford’s collection of  “secret pieces” AKA Lingerie with shaping effects or otherwise know as “shapewear”. The first reason, I love their pieces b/c they offer  different levels of control: light, medium, and tight. Second, they offer sexy options. Third it is super comfortable.

With my white fitted dress from Nordstrom’s my “secret piece” is a half-skirt  from the indidviual nature  collection.  (which I wore under my breast and it still fell below my hips) The material is soft and silky along with gently shaping my feminine figure, fitting like a second skin beneath my outfit.

Wolford offers a few other piece in this same material that provide a light fit, with     shaping effect all while keeping your white pieces not see through.

 

I would love to hear your comments or other shapewear pieces that you love to wear…
