Orange Little Mistress Dress Image

Me being a Shopaholic is no news. I love to shop, especially online. I find online shopping easy and convenient. I don’t have to deal with commuting back and forth with 2 screaming toddlers. I don’t have to deal with the hustle and bustle of shopping malls or changing rooms. I can shop from the comfort of my home, anyday, anytime. I tell you, online shopping is the best thing since slice bread.

I got this Little Mistress skater orange dress with embellished belt detail on the Octer marketplace. This is my first piece from the Little Mistress brand, and I have fallen in love with it. I got a size 10, and it is a perfect fit. The embellished belt detail draws attention to the waist, which I like, and the colour is perfect for the season. I have a few events to attend in the next few weeks, and this dress will be worn to at least 1 of them.

Celebrity Style: Khloe Kardashian vs Lupita Nyong’o in Gucci

Who-Wore-It-Better-Khloe-Kardashian-Lupita-Nyongo-Gucci-Spring-2016-Floral-Ensemble-900x1200

Another day, another celebrity style post. Today, it is all about who wore this Gucci floral outfit better? Khloe Kardashian or Lupita Nyong’o? Both ladies are rocking similar versions of the Gucci Spring/Summer 2016 floral piece. Khloe Karadashian has on a Gucci floral shirt dress, styled by celebrity stylist, Monica Rose, while Lupita Nyong’o has on the same shirt plus a matching skirt also by Gucci.

I am on the fence with both looks, I am not quite sure which I prefer, but I know for a fact that I am not a fan of both looks. Khloe was obviously going for a sexier outfit with the messy hair, bare legs and sandals, and it works as she has the body to show off, but if I was to style her, I would pick a different pair of sandals. A simple pair will not compete for attention with the busy floral dress, and the outfit will look more effortless. I will also change the hairstyle, I am not a fan of that at all.

With Lupita, I guess she was going for the full-on floral look, which is very bold and very stylish when styled correctly, but she got this look so wrong. Lupita should have gone for a mini or midi skirt, to show off a bit of skin. This maxi skirt on her looks too dowdy and old-fashioned. She looks like a much older woman dressed like this. A shorter skirt would have looked divine on her. I am not a fan of the pink shoes she has on either. They make her look so frumpy. A pair of black strappy sandals would have looked amazing on her.

I guess if I was forced to pick 1, I would go for Khloe’s look, because it looks easier to re-style. Which look do you prefer and why? Drop me a comment please.

Thanks for reading.

 

OOTD: Remixing the Denim*

Denim Look Image

 

I have been experimenting a lot with my style this spring/summer season, and I plan to even experiment some more, starting with remixing the denim. One thing I love about denim is how effortless it is to style. Mixing key stylish pieces with denim will create an instant chic look.The power of denim is so amazing, it is fantastic what a piece of denim can do to an outfit.

We all know how cool a pair of jeans is, but do you know a pair of denim jacket is even cooler? It is one of the few pieces you can wear all year round, and style in a variety of ways. I currently own 2 denim jackets, and I think I will be buying some more.

For this look, I paired my denim on denim with a black lace camisole top. Who says you can’t wear black in summer? Well now you know you can if you want. You can wear black anything of the year, and you can opt for shiny back textures for the warm weather. Just another reason why I love wearing black so much…

The next denim look I will be trying next is the triple denim look. Since I have mastered the double denim look, the next logical outfit step should be the triple denim right? I can picture that outfit in my head, and it looks crazy in a good way. I am becoming more of a risk taker when it comes to my outfit choices and I am loving it. Playing safe is so old now.
