Not a princess yet? Well, do not you worry about it! One do not have to wake up like a princess, she can become one…  Not buy moving to England and marrying a prince; hold on, if you can do that go ahead.

For other women in this world I would recommend to go to the department store, or not so department… and get one chiffon maxi skirt! It will change your life forever like it had changed mine a couple of years back.

It all started with me being annoyed with all the shopping fever before my birthday. I can bet I am not the only one who gets super stressed out about birthday party, where tons of people love you for who you are but still will judge you from your toes. Or, of course one of you ex-boyfriends just had to show up. Anyways, instead of running around the stores like a completely crazy person, I actually went online (not usually my thing to do, shopping is my cardio). I found that new app Resultly and after a couple of seconds, I found that gorgeous perfect skirt. I could not afford not to buy it right the way. It was not even that expensive I was expecting to spend for my birthday outfit.

You will not believe how special it makes you feel! the shape of the skirt, the length and  the material all together help one look so princessy, girly, and sexy at the same very time. Of course, I had to buy a cute top to match the skirt. My skirt was purple and I needed some other color to make it look even more cuter for the birthday event.  I fount a gold top, you can see some choice I found  here: http://www.neimanmarcus.com/Charlie-Jade-Pleated-Chiffon-Maxi-Skirt-Cobalt-Blue/prod175150346/p.prod

Gold and purple are a perfect match, so it looked awesome. The only thing you can not over do with a chiffon maxi skirt is that one have to be very careful with choosing jewelry and shoes. I am not a bog fan of flats, so I just got simple high heels in nude/gold kind of color. Of course, flats might be more appropriate on the summer day if you have to walk a lot, but in my case , the is no party without heels. 

Jewelry is another story. Too much of it will not make you a princess it will make “cheap” . the chiffon itself is already fancy material and not necessary  is asking for tons of jewelry .The less the better. Every girl will get attention without it . Trust me.  All my guests loved my look and what is even more important I really felt like a princess , and all because of that purple chiffon maxi skirt!

Mint heels:

Aren’t these mint heels from Boston Proper gorgeous? They are perfect! The mint color will really pop if worn with a white dress. You can also try to mix a variety of pastels together to really embrace the pastel trend. I found these mint green heels via the Resultly App! It literally searched hundreds of online stores to bring me tons of mint shoe options.  I’m really loving these mint heels, they are just perfect!

Baby Blue Heels:

I found this pair of cute baby blue heels from yoox.com. I just love the edgy vibe the studs bring to this pastel blue color. The juxtaposition is just so eye-catching. They will for sure create a great impact no matter what sort of look you are going for. You can totally wear them with jeans for a more casual edgy vibe. They would also look super cute with a suer short skirt and tights! There are so many ways you can wear these shoes!

Light Pink Heels:

Literally dying right now because these Ted Baker London heels are so cute! I mean come one! The light pink color is so chic and on trend. This shoe also features a cute peep two and metallic gold heel. These would look super cute with a mid length skirt or with a cute dress! I just can ‘t get over how cute these light pink heels are. If you are new to the pastel trent, then light pink is a great color to start with since it is pretty neutral and will go with a lot of the clothing that you all ready have in your closet.

Lilac Heels:

These lilac heels by Chinese Laundry are major show stoppers! Aren’t they just the prettiest color? I love these show so much because the design of the shoe is very simple, but by making it that fun lilac color they instantly pop. They are not to overwhelming with tons of straps and unnecessary bling to distract from the beautiful color. Since these shoes are so simple you can wear them with an outfit that a little more gong on with it. Perhaps a sparkly dress or embellished shirt.

Velvet Dress is one of those dresses when you wear and everyone keep staring at you. I know for a fact , not that many women have tried to that kind of dress yet; however, I hope at some point they will.

I have always been thinking to get one dress like that, so last year I decided to go shopping for it.  A friend of mine had her birthday coming up, so it was a great reason to try it on. I can tee you for sure, it was not the easiest and fastest shopping I have ever done.

Most of the stores do not have velvet clothing in general, so after dozens of stores I went to, I have decided to start looking online. Thanks to a friend of mine, who recommended me to check out Resultly shopping app that literally saved my life! I found around ten different dresses I liked in a couple of minutes. I did not have a specific color I was looking for and I wanted to try all of them. So, I have ordered three dresses. Unfortunately, I loved all of them but I could not afford to buy it… It was a hard decision to make between a purple dress and a red one. I asked my friends what they were thinking and after hours of thinking, I ended up buying the purple velvet dress. You can check this dress here.

I was happy with the price and with the fact that I can wear it not only for out in the evening, but also during the day. The other thing I had to worry about it was finding a perfect pair of shoes…. In my opinion, purple looks the best with black. I had to find some cute black heels fast. We went with my friends to Nordstrom Rack and found very cute black  high heels. Of course, I had tons of shoes at  home already, but I could not resist a new pair…

Everyone loved my velvet dress, I almost felt bad that all attention was on me not a birthday girl. The one thing I would recommend to anyone who is thinking about getting that dress is to make sure that it does not look cheap. Some velvet dresses I tried had a very poor quality and it did not look nice. Also, do not spend hundreds of dollars on it either. This kind of dress is not for a casual day and you will not wear it too many times anyways.

 

 

Me, last NYE. This is the story of me, my gold sequin skirt, and a horrible time almost one year ago.

It all started when this really annoying girl from my high school invited half of our former school of choice to her company’s new years eve party. Don’t get me wrong the Facebook invite, #lol, sounded legit. You’d get champagne upon entry, free drinks all night, and party favors to ring in the new year with all just a “low” fee. So naturally, my friends and I with little desire to look elsewhere for plans said lez do it. So there we go, we bought our tickets online and let the online shopping aka browsing begin.

What to wear?
Ask five girls what is the most appropriate NYE dress and hands down you will get at least four out of five responses “sequins”. So, what did you think I began typing into my search engine? Sequin dresses! But, next came the hard part. Do I want to be sassy and chic and go with the gold, or do I want to stand out like the disco ball and go silver? Then comes the not so obvious choice of the sequin shades of blue, which would totally bring out my baby blue eyes. Well to cut this dramatic decision short, I went with a gold sequin skirt and a reallll cute black top to match (see all that shines here: http://www.result.ly/Search/gold%20sequin%20skirt)

gold sequin skirt

So now that you can imagine just how hot I looked, let’s get into it. So NYE has the biggest hype of almost all holidays, drinking holidays maybe. Regardless, my girls and I were excited. They come downtown to my apartment and we start getting ready. Barely holding in our curiosity of what was to come while attempting to master the perfect cat eye (link below if this is also your every day struggle). Little idea as to exactly who would be there, but we had a general idea of each friend group that would. So, aimlessly walking up and down the street for 20 mins trying to hail a cab in 5 inch heels and 4 inches of snow, we finally arrive.

Needless to say it’s a bit chilly, hello Chicago, I toss my pea coat to the coat check faster than he could say hi. We walk in, grab a drink, and then it hits me… my perfectly sequined gold skirt is not so perfect. THERE’S A HOLE IN THE BUTT. I mean!!! Yes, mortified to say the least on one of the most anticipated nights of the year with little desire to leave a club more filled with attractive men that actually spent time figuring out their outfits this morning. I had no choice- I had to leave. Dragging each foot after the other out the door, hailing a cab that I was convinced would never come, I went back to my apartment. And rang in the new year on my couch with a Subway sandwich. Hey, when’s it’s under your apartment building you would too.

Get the perfect cat eye here.

So yay me. Have a happy new year and remember to check the butt of your skirt this year ladies.

Black or nude shoes is always a huge dilemma. It is probably the hardest choice to make when it comes to find a perfect for to match a dress or any other out fit. For years, women thought that there is nothing can be better than black shoes, especially black sandals;however for the past five years there is more and more women who prefer nude sandals over black ones or other colors, and I am definitely one of them…I agree, with black color being a totally a classic choice but lets think about benefits of nude shoes.

First of all,  nude is just like a black color goes with everything. Something like this here. Actually, black will not match some outfits. for example, there is no way you can wear some nice summer dress with black heels ;it simply will not look nice and light enough for a hot day out. Nude, on the other hand , can be great in the summer and winter and match any other color at the same time.

Second of all, nude is the only color that will make your legs look much longer. Black-not so much; for some girls who are not super tall, it is always a bad choice to wear black color sandals in general. So, if you didn’t know that, you should definitely try to wear nude sandals over black pair.

Third good thing about nude color is that it is the best choice for summer time. We wear so many colored outfits;sometimes top and skirt have so much statement that you do not want to make it even crazier with black shoes. Thats why, in the summer time is my number one choice in the shoe closet.

Number four reason is nude color has been trending since the last season, it looks like almost every celebrity in Hollywood wears nude from top to bottom all the time. You do want to feel like a super star, right? So, thats should be your choice as well!

My last and very favorite thing about nude sandals. It simply perfect for long type of dresses and thats what I wear a lot. I love going out to galas and other fancy events. Of course, I prefer to wear an evening long type of dress or skirt, so no way I would wear black heels with a light colored dress. Most of my dresses and shoes  I buy from Resultly; they have tons of choices for nude sandals.  Or, I go to Macy’s , they have good deals , especially before holidays for cocktail dresses. So, if you ask me it will be always nude sandals over black one.
