Styling: Co-Ord Sets

Short suits and coordinated sets have been all the range for the past year. What started off as just an incorporation of masculine European tailored suits into womenswear has blossomed into more sleek and classic feminine looks, including a more use of bold prints and classic feminine silhouettes. Crops, culottes, circle skirts, and much more have gotten the look. I, personally, love the coordinated sets trend and all the flexibility in can bring to one's wardrobe.

I love this classic feminine look to a coordinated set. Strappy black heels and subtle gold accents really allow the focus of the look to be on the beautiful organza checkered set. It looks like a dress when worn together but as soon as the fabric starts to move, you see a hint of skin at the waist for a very understated note of sexiness. Wear the top with distressed boyfriend cut off shorts and nude heels to add an edgy feel to the organza. A clas…

Epirus - World Cup

Ok. Let's start this over.

I happened to catch a couple minutes of this soccer game that was on late last Saturday night. I'm not sure who played but one team scored 2 goals in a span of what felt like 30 seconds.

So, I've decided to become a futbol fan. And, since I'm Haitian, I've deci…

All Black Like The Omen

I know black isn't typical summer apparel but this dress is one of my favorites. It's light and flowy and the bold gold zipper down the middle is a fun accent. Worn with my black perspex clutch to create a simple, easy look.

Peplum Hem

I bought this skirt several months ago in preparation for Spring and I was super excited to finally be able to wear it this weekend. Didn't get to creative with the styling; I wore it exactly like the model did on the website. Also, these boyfriend t-shirts are some of the comfiest pieces I have bought in a while.

50 Shades of Brown

Decided to stick with a monochromatic look today by delving into sea of creams, tans, and browns while playing with gold accents. There is subtle mixing of prints between the chevron patterns of my skirt, plaid on my blouse, and leopard belt. Who said monochrome had to be boring?
