Strapless Colorblock Maxi Dress *Stylo 191♥


Strapless clothes are not really my favorite, but this dress made me change my mind.

I am a little iffy when it comes to wearing strapless clothes, because I feel my arms are too big and I don’t have enough bust, but this dress made my change my mind, because it has an elastic lightly padded bustline and a fabric that is thick enough to cover certain imperfections that I don’t like revealing.

It also features an empire waist which helps camouflage my rolls.  😆  😆  😆

I also love the colorblock trend, because it makes the outfit look very trendy and eye-catching. I think the black and white paired with the blurred aztec print make a great a combination!

I decided to pair my dress with white rhinestoned flat sandals, along with a mint green crossbody bag, in order to create contrast.

To add a bit of drama to the look, I decided to emphasize my eyes creating a dramatic eye makeup, but softening it with nude lips.

This is definitely a very simple Summer look, yet very eye-catching and elegant, and it can be very easy to create!

Deep Red * Stylo 157♥

Deep Red is one of my favorite colors for Fall and Winter. I love wearing garments and makeup in deep red.

I chose to pair it with gray and brown for my Stylo of this week, and I love the outcome.

I wore a turtleneck long sleeved all lace top, along with a gray/beige aztec cardigan and a thick brown belt over.

I added a pair of skinnies, a red bag and a pair of snake printed pumps with a pop of red.

This is definitely a casual look perfect for Fall. I wore this outfit yesterday to go shopping for my upcoming Pre Holiday Event I am hosting in November.

I felt really comfy and stylish the whole time, plus I got nice compliments about my makeup as well.

I chose to wear this dramatic lip color called Rosary from Kat Von D paired with black eyeliner.

Summer Patterns * Stylo 136♥

Summer Patterns are fun, eye-catching  and  full of energy!

I love wearing bright colors and crazy patterns. Lately, I have been obsessed with summer patterns, and maybe it is because I am in need of great energy, and bright colors definitely fuel you with it!

I found this dress in my closet and I must confess, it is one of my favorite dresses of all times. I got it at Macy’s longtime ago; it belongs to the Kouture Kimora Lee Simmons Collection. The fabric is thick and flattering. The top is a corset type, and the dress also features a front zipper. It also has studs all around the waist.

This dress looks kind of loose, but it definitely accentuates my waist, defining my figure.

If you are interested in getting this dress you can search the web or even Ebay, where they still have it available for purchase.

I decided to pair my dress with fuchsia heels, as well as fuchsia feather earrings; and I also added a white clutch in order to add contrast.

Regarding the Makeup, I opted for a natural makeup look, because I felt the dress was already busy enough, so I chose to tone down the entire look by wearing neutral colors.

This is definitely a fun and very eye-catching look. It is also super comfy and appropriate for a bunch of summer events where you can definitely look effortlessly gorgeous.

Aztec Patterns: Tribal Or Southwestern Cardigans

Aztec Patterns

Aztec Patterns have been a hot trend for quite a while. Some people call them Tribal or Southwestern as well, but no matter what you want to call them, what it is certain is that this eye-catching pattern is unmistakable and it draws attention toward anyone wearing it.

I personally love the Aztec patterns on cardigans! I think they add a little bit of edginess to any casual outfit, making you stand out from the crowd.

Pair them with jeans, leggings, A-line skirts, or even a casual dress! The key is to look relaxed and comfortable, but also avant-garde and stylish! 😉

 

Here you got my selections for this week; a few cute cardigans in Aztec patterns…pick your favorite!!! ♥ xo

Stylo of the Week 94♥ * Aztec Love * Outfit Tutorial

aztec love, aztec pattern, aztec print, how to pair an aztec print, Lakshmi in Trance, Lakshmintrance, mesh peplum top, mesh top, peplum top

* Aztec Love * is mainly represented by this breathtaking mesh peplum top I bought at Mandee about three weeks ago, which features an impactful Aztec print. Aztec patterns have become an interesting trend that has been adopted by a lot of Bloggers to definitely add drama and contrast to their outfits. You all know I am a huge lover of peplums, so this top caught my attention as soon as I saw it. The mesh detail in the front along with an open back makes this Aztec love peplum top a very intriguing and sexy one! I chose to pair it with royal blue because that’s exactly the color that is missing in the pattern, meaning I wanted to add a total different color. So I chose these skinny pants with front pockets and a side zipper also from Mandee. To add balance to the outfit, I added neutral pumps matching the top’s neutral background. I am wearing long aqua earrings (from Mandee ;)) which match perfect with my peplum top and an orange bag along with an orange bow ring and a Morange Lipstick paired with Black Cat Eyes.
