It’s definitely been a long and tough week yet rewarding in many ways, one of them being that I managed to finally get myself organized in terms of personal schedule, I’m always all over the place. Hope everyone had an awesome week, TGIF, right? So, after receiving many emails and questions about what is a proper attire for work, for those of you who work at an office or any other work setting that does not require using uniforms. I decided to give some hopefully helpful and useful tips. As for myself, I wear scrubs on a daily basis so I never get the pleasure of dressing up.
There are many misconceptions about work attire and how you should look. For starters, I am not saying that you should dress like you’re getting ready to walk the runway, but you should definitely not dress like you're getting ready to go work at the barn. There are many options many of which can be totally versatile and comfortable.
You can never go wrong with Skirts and a nice buttoned down shirt, Do keep in mind the length of the skirt. Pant suits are also a great way to look great and feel comfortable while doing so. dark washed denim with a blazer is also a way to go just be careful which denim you choose, boyfriend jeans will definitely be a terrible idea.

Well hello there gorgeous, how's everyone doing today? I'm great and super happy to be alive and enjoy just another awesome day. So, for todays OOTD I've created a look that is both chic and conservative with a twist. Lately, as with everything else I've been somewhat obsessed with coats in general, but more so with the houndstooth style. Here I decided to pair my black and white notch stand collar/ oversize coat with a center front split faux leather skirt and some booties for that chic/rock effect. For accessories I went with a statement necklace and an oversized taupe clutch.

How are you guys feeling about this insanely annoying winter storm we're having? I hate every single minute of it for many reasons, one of them being that i'm stuck in my apt :( anyways, being that I have all the time in the world today to do some blogging why not share with you guys a spring/summer attire? maybe we can forget about the weather for a slight second. This outfit is perfect for any occasion, whether it be a night out with the girls or on a special date. As much as I love skirts just a little FYI for my fellow "shorties"petite ladies, long skirts and even many pencil skirts will make our legs appear shorter than what they really are, in this case due to the cut and shape of the back of the skirt it didn't really flaunt my short legs. In cases like this try go with sky high heels or platforms to give your legs a longer effect. I did not follow my own rules because i injured my ankle and it was hurting badly and i did not want to over do it. (btw) yes, it was freezing cold, don't worry i did have my coat.

Tulle Skirt:http://space46boutique.com Top: http://H&M.COM Shoes (christian Louboutin)http://Neiman Marcus Necklace:
This has without a doubt been one of my most loved outfits of all times. Not only do i LOVE tulle skirts, but i'm also a huge fan of lace designs, so you can just imagine how excited i was about being able to combine both. I ordered this skirt from an online store specialized in tulle skirts (@space46boutique) and my skirt was indeed made to perfection. There are many ways to style tulle skirts, one of which can be as styled above, you can give it a punk/rock-ish look by adding a leather biker jacket, or if maybe you are looking for a more sophisticated fun look, you can add a blazer or a jean jacket, if you're looking to keep it casual, just add a t-shirt, i mean, options are endless.

For this particular look which i would describe as casual with a touch of chic i wanted to go for something dark with a pop of white, the idea behind it was to be comfortable but at the same time look nice and trendy, like I’ve stated in previous posts, the key to looking edgy/chic without trying too hard is to layer up with accessories that will lighten up the outfit and make it look fabulous. As you can see here i paired my Faux Leather leggings with a simple black t-shirt, a statement necklace and my thigh high boots, for the pop of color i decided to go with a white long blazer to keep the look clean and fresh.

Omg guys, can't even begin to explain how excited i was to be part of this amazing event, as we all know and "carrie" once stated "every year the woman of new york leave the past behind and look forward to the future...this is known as fashion week." And that was certainly true for me, don't get me wrong, its not all so glamorous and perfect as we may all picture it, but you will certainly see celebrity sightings,people dressed like complete freaks on purpose, the best and worst hair styles, the funkiest outfits, overall a great experience. For this particular event i decided to go for a comfortable yet chic/modern look. I wore a long sleeve dress with contrast sheer chiffon panels at bodice, sleeves and back with a side slit, leather pants with zippered slits and a tux blazer with leather trimmings. To complete this look i wore my white meshed booties and a long black coat with gold colored buttons (not pictured here).
