Feeling Knotty

I recently purchased a little black dress by NBD from an online clothing boutique called Revolve. It is the “Tie Me Down” dress. The dress is perfect because it is sexy and cute at the same time and has little tie details.

I had dinner plans to go to a hip sushi restaurant here in LA called Katsuya, so I decided to debut my new LBD. I had also been coveting the topknot hairstyle all the celebs have been wearing, so I decided to take a stab at doing it myself. For all of you that know me, you know I have fabulous hairstylist friends that work on celebrity’s manes, so I normally defer to them to style my hair in any trendy styles, but this time, I did it myself. I will do a post on tricks of the trade later with their expertise.

Back to the dress…

The fabric is the perfect weight, not too thick, not to thin, and there is a lining, so no need to worry about any visible panty lines or VPL. The tie details are so sweet and the cutouts provide just enough skin exposure to flaunt your stuff, but not in a vulgar way. The tie detail at the back and lower scoop back are perfect for when you need to hit the ladies room and your man watches you walk away. There is also a slit at the front left of the dress, but the mid calf length keeps it from being over exposed. I felt flirty and fun in this dress and the best part is it was on sale!

You can purchase it at http://www.revolve.com for $63! It is by NBD 🙂

All For The Nookie

I recently went shopping for a dress for a trip to Vegas and stumbled upon the brand, Nookie. It is an Australian brand that features fitted dresses, skirts, tops, and swimwear in their collection.

I was invited to see JLO’s new show at Planet Hollywood and was able to see it before most people due to the fact that I went to the “Friends and Family” preview. I will post about the show later, but for now am focusing on my new dress.

I was in search of a dress that was both sexy and classy and made me feel comfortable. The Tropicana long sleeved style by Nookie fit the bill perfectly. The material is stretchy, but maintains its form fitting shape and the design is great as it is long sleeved, the length of the dress hits just below the knee (I am 5’4″) and the criss cross open detailing adds that sexy flair that I had been craving. I tried it on for a few friends and they agreed that this was “the” dress. Most girls tend to migrate toward slutty dresses for a night out in Las Vegas, but I try to keep it classy, but with a little flash.

I purchased mine in LA at a boutique called Divine Boutique in the Beverly Center and it retailed for $220.

You can also purchase the dress at nookie.com.au

Floral Frenzy

I am a girly girl and love florals. I have been obsessed with this particular floral outfit by Dolce and Gabbana for the last few years. It was shown on the runway as part of the Fall 2012 Ready-to-wear collection. I first caught a glimpse of it on the cover of Elle Magazine when Rosie Huntington-Whiteley graced the cover wearing it. I hope this outfit finds its way to my closet by some stroke of luck. 

I love the classic charm of floral dresses and skirts for brunch, afternoon tea, and a date night with your beau. Tight or flouncy silhouettes are equally as appealing. I lust after a sun filled day, taking a drive on a twisty road with an ocean view to arrive at a beautiful location offering tasty treats and bubbly drinks to appease my palate. 

I adore the embroidery of the Dolce and Gabbana pieces that weave into floral patterns and the silken prints by the same brand as well as Ted Baker and Alice and Olivia. Going Bohemian with florals is another option and my favorite brand for this look is Planet Blue. Join the floral frenzy and pick up one of these trends.
