I've seen a few outfits and a video of this idea of wearing a scarf like a vest, but it wasn't until I saw a store display that I wanted to try it out for myself. I asked a store associate for a reminder tutorial and had to try it when I received this watercolor scarf
from Bangles of Bombay. I love the multicolor print and how light and airy this scarf is so I can wear it year-round. It's big enough that I'll be able to use it as a sarong and more traditionally as a neck scarf in other seasons. I have to say that I like this look the best and will have to try it with other scarves in the future.
outfit today was inspired by the lovely shade of orange in the Enlighten
bracelet. I got lots of compliments on my color choice, but it was the
crochet detail that I loved so much about this dress. The pattern is on
trend with all the laser cutting and perforation in clothing and
accessories right now. I added in my dressier flat sandals and the
python print purse to keep it fairly simple. You can't really tell from
the picture, but I also did a sleeker hair style with a deeper part to
go with this outfit. Love how it all turned out.
A big thank you to Lena for the bracelet. Love the color and the simplicity of the bracelet, but mostly, I love the bracelet because the proceeds benefit an organization that supports women. I love when you can use your purchasing power to support a cause. Lena is hoping to sell at least 20 Enlighten bracelets and is raffling off hostess rewards on the following trunk show (pending qualifying sales): http://www.stelladot.com/ts/k3f06

Checking out a couple of short dress looks for upcoming weddings and
my daughter's upcoming
dances. I love this dress for it's unique color and swag detail.
It looks like it would be flattering in the
mid-section because of the draping and with the addition of the empire waist. Loving the fabric: it looks expensive and soft to the touch. I love the v-neckline which would highlight a necklace. Although I'm partial to statement necklaces, I'd probably wear a delicate necklace since the dress is on the sophisticated side. I would wear a neutral heel and I like the soft waves in her hair.
This is a fun option for teens because of the 80's bubble skirt styling. I'm loving the color and the addition of the black bow belt. I would add some earrings and black pumps. I would change out the bold bangle for something more romantic to coincide with the belt. Maybe something in crystal or black lace. The loose up-do looks cute with the dress.
Another sweet option for teens. I'm loving the full tulle patterned skirt. So romantic. The hair styling is a little too sophisticated, maybe loose waves would be better. I'd go with a strappy heeled sandal in a neutral color and a pretty clutch. The view from the front is even sweeter: see it here:
