Fashion Friday Queen of Heartz Summer Line Pt 2.

Hooray time for Pt 2 of my Queen of Heartz feature! Let me start off by saying I’m a fairly modest person and I don’t particularly enjoy putting it all out there, so the idea of doing a swimsuit shoot was a little intimidating. But let me tell you this, no swimsuit has ever given me the confidence to “rock what I got” quite like this one. I think the main reason this swimsuit made me feel like such a bombshell was yes its beautiful and the print is just straight up sexy, but it balances that sex appeal out with a cut that is not only modest  but its also incredibly flattering.

IMG_8259You guys! There was another bee!!! Apparently bumble bees love Queen of Heartz as much as I do 😉

Head piece: Gift from my dear friend Amy who sells other gorgeous headpieces on her etsy site 

Sunglasses: Urban Outfitters they sold out of the exact pair I’m wearing but they have other brilliant options

Robe: Gift but you can find a similar robe at JCPenneys or Victoria’s Secret

Swimsuit: Queen of Heartz I’ve never been a huge fan of one pieces which is funny for a “modest” person to say, but I always felt like they were more revealing in structure, and not at all flattering, most resulted in a ham in a tube sock like appearance. But this suit could not be more opposite of that, I love how the structure of this suit keeps you supported without being as brutal as spanx, the little buttons on the bust add a beautiful polished appearance, and the adjustable halterneck ensures your comfort regardless of size. Speaking of size Queen of Heartz size chart is always on point, my measurements are 36″ 27.5″ 36″ and the suit in medium is a perfect fit. I know I say it all the time but its Letty’s keen eye that truly sets her pieces apart, if you purchase anything from her you can rest assured the fit will be beautiful, the tiny details will give your outfit that polished edge, and the quality of construction will be like nothing you’ve ever experienced before. I cannot sing the praises of Queen of Heartz enough!

Shoes: DSW again not the exact pair I’m wearing but I actually like this alternative better

I hope you all enjoyed this post and that you check Queen of Heartz out. Happy Friday my love!

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.

What you’ll need:

For the glamour girl: Holly Golightly

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

I hope you all enjoyed this post! If you try any of the following looks be sure to take a picture and share with me! Heck even if you don’t choose one of these looks take a picture and share, hearing from you guys always brightens my day! Have a great weekend and a Happy Halloween.
