Tuck that Tuxedo!

I saw this picture and this Haute Hippie dress swept me off my feet and trust me, I don’t say that very often (and I typically didn’t even love haute hippie brand that much). Haute hippie tuxedo dress was immediately part of my lust-list. Find the dress here and native fox’s blog here.

Polished, structures, modern, minimalist and chic. This dress is all that and MORE!


Love how she styled it here (and of course the fact that she used Alexander Wang shoes and Celine bag – 2 of my most favorite brands). Another great look from blogger from Song of Style.


Others in the same league – also by my favorite designers – Victoria Beckham and 3.1 Phillip Lim.


So Haute Hippie dress and those by Victoria Beckham, 3.1 Phillip Lim which are at a $700 price tag which is rather steep. I researched into a couple of more affordable options here is what I found.

Rihanna for River Island here with or without sleeves.


Celebrity style crush – Victoria Beckham

I seldom like celebrities-turned-designers but Victoria Beckham just might be an exception. I love that she has a specific and distinctive perspective and it looks fabulous on her. Things that I started especially appreciating because of her:

Neutral colors like heather grey

 

Pencil skirts, mid-length

 

Men inspired, shirt dresses (and perfect with nude pumps)

 

Fuller skirts, styled in not-so-girlie fashion, LOVE!

 

Structured clothing, especially exaggerated shoulders!

 

Special mention for coated demin and suede/satin collars – always loved it and she is great at styling it!

Now only if she will go easy on her tan!

Sleep chic

Are you sleep chic?

I love this new term! Sleep chic! I am one of those who love to go to bed in comfy clothing and not really care about chic-ness. I am too tired (or lazy) after work, gym or too cold. Sigh!

But this term makes me think. Sleep chic can mean sooo many things. Here are some categories that come to mind for sleep chic – sexy, luxurious, comfort-seeker, playful and cover it all. Which one are *you*????

Luxurious

[luhg-zhoor-ee-uhs] 1. Characterized by luxury; ministering or conducive to luxury: a luxurious hotel. 2. Given to or loving luxury;  wanting or requiring what is choice, expensive, or the like: a person with luxurious tastes.

Although I am personally a minimalist but luxury in fashion intrigues me.  There are days I want it all.

Lavish fur coats, expensive drapes…

Pearls, diamonds and gold…

Lace lingerie, silk, cashmere…

I put together a pin board on pinterest on what luxury in fashion means to me. What does it mean to you?
