One Piece Multiple Possibilities

Hello all I hope you’re having a great week so far. I thought it would be fun to do another “transitional fashion” post but instead of a from day to night look I thought it would be fun to show you all how with the help from some select accessories and styling tips you can change the look of a romper completely.

I decided to go with my two favorite style aesthetics, both of which could not be more polar opposite, but seriously where is it written that you can’t like a little bit of everything when it comes to style?

Look 1. Pinup Inspired

Because of the casual nature of a romper I decided to keep my hair simple, rolled bangs, a little bit of a bouffant working, and the rest of my hair down and curled all set off with a cute little bandana. I of course ignore how casual the romper is when it comes to my makeup though, a classic red lip and a winged liner is just a must have to for me, and to set the look off I paired a wide red belt to define my waist and a pair of heels to make my legs look a little longer and leaner than they actually are.front and backdetails9230923893009242

Earrings: Kohls

Bra Top: Onzie

Romper: H&M/Similar 

Belt: Vintage/Similar

Heels: DSW/Similar

 

Look 2. Bohemian inspired.

See what I mean about polar opposites? For a fun bohemian look I went a little more “intricate” with my hair doing a fun twisted crown and some soft romantic curls to set it off, kept the makeup very simple and luminous, piled on the jewelry I’ve never heard of such a thing as too much turquoise, added a brown braided belt, again to define my waist, and kimono to give the look some movement. Then threw on some cowboy boots for a bit of a rustic edge.

Jewelry: The choker my mother made and I believe all the other pieces were bought at pow wows. Honestly pow wows are the greatest places to find gorgeous turquoise jewelry and I like supporting artists as opposed to companies. Do a little research and see if there are any pow wows taking place in your town, and don’t worry if you’re not Native American every pow wow I have ever been to has been open to the public. However if there aren’t any pow wows taking place near you I did find this site (Indian Village Mall) that sells gorgeous Native American wears.

Kimono: Cotton bought it ages ago but I love this Kimono from Forever 21 as an alternative

Which look was your favorite? Do you have a tendency to have polar fashion favorites or is it just me? Drop me a line I love hearing from you guys.

Hope you all enjoyed this post as much as I did. Happy Wednesday!

Halloween Costume Ideas.

Halloween the perfect excuse to wear something fun, eat candy, and spend time with friends. Unfortunately Halloween can also be scary…scary expensive. Costumes can be quite costly, and if you’re like most people you aren’t going to wear it again next year. You’re dropping a lot of cash for a “one wear” outfit. So I decided to throw together a few looks with things most of you ladies will already own, or at the very least can wear again.

For the adventurous type: Pirate.

9662I feel like a pirate is probably the easiest of looks to pull together but still really deliver! It’s all about detail, a few fake wounds, some schmutz on your face, and plenty of layered jewelry are what take this look over the top.

95369550954495539548This is by far one of my favorite looks. Cause seriously who doesn’t want to channel Audrey Hepburn?

What you’ll need:

Sparkly hair pins or small tiara: http://www.claires.com/store/us/goods/claire%27s+club/cat1260282/dress+up/p52588/mini+tiara+hair+comb/  http://www.claires.com/store/us/goods/sale/cat1260122/jewelry/p26853/crystal+butterfly+and+flower+bobby+pins+set+of+6/ So I know not every girl has a tiara lying about, but most of us have those sparkly hair pins from prom, I just stacked the pins for a makeshift tiara.

Sparkly earrings: http://www.claires.com/store/us/goods/jewelry/cat1260162/earrings+/p62150/crystal+flower+and+teardrop+drop+earrings/

Black catseye sunglasses: http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/urban/catalog/productdetail.jsp?id=18846980&parentid=W_ACC_SUNGLASSES

Pearls: I ended up layering two different pearl necklaces and added a brooch because that’s what I had, but sam moons has a lovely option http://sammoon.com/items_amj.asp?tempcat=necklace_statement&img=09132013_422_MG_5937&tbl=necklace_statement&cat=jewelry&id=1617

Gloves: Another thing I had left over from prom http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_Stretch-Satin-Elbow-Length-Glove-25105_Accessories-Sashes-and-Coverage-Options-Gloves these aren’t necessary cause honestly not many people will wear them again, but since I had em I wore them for the shoot.

Little Black Dress: The beauty of this costume is just about any little black dress will do and most of us girls have a little black dress. But if you dont H&M has this gorgeous lbd for only $10! http://www.hm.com/us/product/14519?article=14519-A

Black shoes: I went with flats for comfort but if you want go for some lovely heels that are reminiscent of what Audrey wore http://www.hm.com/us/product/06850?article=06850-C
