Roaring 20s and Giveaway Announcement

DSC_2091
Hi my lovelies! As of the moment I am inspired by 1920's fashion. Since the remake of the movie Great Gatsby ,the fashion of 1920's  skyrocketed its popularity. Why wouldn't be? 1920's fashion is epitomize by bold, glam and new era in women's fashion.  To give you a little history fact, this is the era of the ending of thight corset and long bustles. This is the introduction of a modern women in fashion, the light, bright and shorter hem lines. The introduction of modern bras and the birth of  " the bob " hairstyles.Its all about laces,  fringes, ruffles , prints and beadwork in intricate details. Today , I did my own rendition of 1920's flapper, in lieu of fringes I have ruffles.

At  glance, you would think this is a dress. No,  it's a two piece blouse and skirt. When I got this blouse I was thinking of pairing it with pants but its impossible in this hot weather here in Michigan. I wear so much of them during winter . I wouldn't even bother to look at it in the closet these days. They much needed a break . Anyhow,  This  blouse is so comfortable . It drapes excellent  and I love the soft flowy chiffon material . Most of all the I love the ruffle design of this blouse. I would say it is universally flattering to most body types . If your 4"11 like me, it probably  runs long just like mine on the picture but if your a bit taller maybe over 5 ft. The hemline would probably hit  just right on your hips and that would be perfect to pair it with  lace shorts.

Formal Dresses

 
Shall I say open back or backless formal dresses is the most popular style on the red carpet , prom , weddings and other formal events ? Ofcourse !That's no brainer because these styles is so sexy with a touch of elegance. In looking for gowns here are the things you might want to consider :
 
Classic
 

You don't have to bare all to be sexy. I love that it  is modest in the front and open at the back. Just the right amount of elegance , class and sexiness. My favorite feature about this gown is the empire waistline plunging details, it accentuates women's curves and hugs your body in the right places. Its is universally flattering on most body types.

Sparkle


I love gowns that has  jewel tone details. Who doesn't want sparkle ? For me the more the better, but for some they like just a subtle sparkly details. I love the ones that  have jewel details on the bust , it highlights more in that area. I love the overall ombre effect of this dress as well, for it look so dreamy .

Color


Our skin is biggest organ of our body,it's the first thing people notices. So it is important to pick the right color of your dress for you skintone to make you shine. For warm or tan skin, go for brights like fuschia pink, purple, coral and pastel colors like blush pinks and mint green. For cool or light skin, go for deep colors like black, red ,emerald green, royal blue, burgundy and plum. You want something that makes you stand out and defines your style.

Here are more open back style gowns that I love and you can shop for  more styles at Persunmall



Have a great day my lovelies !

I would also consider this outfit , when going to a small casual daytime outdoor wedding . The suit shorts and the button down top worn as a shawl gives a dramatic and sophisticated look . Its not too dressy and just laid back for a small simple garden wedding. what do you guys think?

Pajama Trend


DSC_1485

Hi my lovelies ! How is it going ? Bear with me with my awkward pose .
 I love clothes and all that girly stuff .
I like pictures but , I really don't know how to pose for pictures, and yet I do a personal style blog.
 Why? I would like to keep a fashion journal, where I could express myself about fashion and things I love. My daily routine is mostly spent time with my family and once in awhile when we go out or when I get to go out with my girlfriends for play date  or lunch date, I like to look  nice, at least. So I thought why not take pictures of what I'm wearing. I rarely get to dress nice during the week so why not savor the moment .
 This is what I call my " Sweet Escape " from pajamas.

Speaking of pajamas , I'm loving the pajama trend right now. I'm talking about the silky  ones with
beautiful prints and floral designs. I'm not into the pajama pants for I'm not gifted with long legs and modelsque silhouette. I would go for the button down tops with geometric prints just like the one I'm sporting right now.

Striped Maxi Dress

DSC_1629_edited-1
Hi lovelies! Maxi dresses are one of my favorite Summer essentials, specially when you have kids and you are rushing in getting ready, it is definitely my go to outfit. What  I love about this dress, is that  its a dolman style on top and then pencil cut style on the bottom. The cotton material is very comfortable too, you can sleep in it. It's also not too long like most maxis. I am 4"11 in. and I only have an inch  of wedge sandals on. If you are taller , it's  more perfect .You only have to wear flats with it or if you are same height as me,  have it altered. I just didn't have the time yet and an inch heel doesn't bother me at all.
DSC_1619_edited-2
 Maxi dresses are  very versatile , we can dress it up or dress it down. A day to night outfit , in this case, I will just add up some stiletto ankle strap sandals , some fancy clutch and jewelry and I'm  off to a dinner date with  hubby. That's why it's one of my personal favorite. I also love how it swings around my legs

Hi my lovelies! I'm a big fan of floral blazer. It's one of my favorite trend for spring and summer. I just love how it adds a splash of colors to a plain dress or to a tank top and jeans combo. The picture above is what I wore last weekend., very casual. It's one of my go to "mommy looks " it  composed of flat soles, loose tops and a high bun. The picture below is obviously the dressy look as seen on my last post . As you can see the versatility of the floral blazer ,you can dress it up or dress it down. It is definitely a good purchase. I like to buy an item that I can wear it many times and can create different looks. So what do you guys think ?

Efox City


Hi beauties ! Today I'm introducing to you Efox City ,it's  not a city but an online store that sell wholesale clothes , its like a city of fashionable, trendy and affordable items. They have everything from women tops, bottoms, accessories , even prom dresses and wedding dresses, they even have a men's line too. Speaking of men's line, I know that summer is here and its time to put away our coats and jackets, but with crazy Michigan weather, it is always better to be prepared for chilly nights when you go camping or bonfire. So aside from wool jacket for ladies, they also sell wool jacket for men .Ladies , Father's day is around the corner, so you better start shopping. I forgot to mention to you that they just opened a jewelry line too from necklaces, bracelets and earrings for women .So while shopping for your hip, cool and trendy dad , hubby, boyfriend or baby daddy, you might as well reward yourself too right ? Occasion or no occasion, shopping is always fun.

Summer is right here , my favorite season of the year. It is when I can wear my favorite type of clothing. Shall I say dresses, shorts , flowy blouses and bikini. Did I just said bikini? yes I love bikinis, they are so sexy but I don't think I'm ready for that . I have been a slacker, I need reinforcement to get back on my work out routine  but with two kids and the other one is still an infant , its hard to find time to work out. By the time that I'm all done with my mommy duties. I just want to sit down and relax. I know, I know  perseverance is the key to success. Like the saying goes no pain no glory. Anyway, enough of my rants. Speaking of my favorite outfits that I like to wear on summer days. Here are a few items that I like at Efox City. Which one here do you like ?
