The Little Brown Dress

20150502080242

Hello my spring belles and beaus, I hope you all had a fantastic week and a great weekend! Thursday is my absolute favorite day of the week, and this Thursday I got some friends together for a #GIRLSNIGHTOUT.

Location:

The Grand Salon Lounge at the newly opened Baccarat Hotel and Residences. There’s no point in having great style with no one to see it. So a girls night out anywhere that’s new and trending is always a great place to showcase your It Girl Style. I must say that I was extremely impressed

The lounge is BEYOND BEAUTIFUL;it’s shiny and decadent as though it was built for a princess.

What I wore:

This look is so affordable, yet so trendy and chic, I had to share it with you guys. (All of my photos are just iPhone pics because this post was totally unplanned).Earth tones are a big hit this season. All shades of brown, army green or clay corals are a YES! This brown H&M trend dress fits great and the texture of the fabric combined with the length gives it a very polished look.

All shades of brown, army green and clay corals are a YES!.

Naturally , I had to add my touch  to make it a bit more glam for an evening out on the town with the ladies. I added this H&M shell necklace to give the appearance of an embellished neckline. Despite it’s size and bulkiness, it added an understated glam effect to my little brown dress. Loved that!

The shells + the brown earthy tone of this dress were a perfect pair.

These python print gold Giuseppe Zanotti sandals and purse gave the perfect accent to an already complete look. You guys may remember these sandals from my travel post Resort Style of a Bond Girl in St. Barth’s.I’m wearing them here in a much different setting with a very different look. They are comfortable and worth every penny. The matching purse is pretty cool too. I’m big on combining affordable clothing with high-end handbags and shoes. This way, you have the freedom of trying out as many new trends as you like and experimenting with fun outfits without breaking the bank.

Happy shopping, lovies, and be sure to check out this new lounge. Between sitting on coyote-haired chairs and dining on crystal, you are sure to become submerged in the decadent ambiance of this new lounge. Well done, Baccarat, and cheers ! xoxoSB

Resort Style of a Bond Girl in St. Bart’s

Today is a really good day to Thank God It’s Friday (TGIF)! It’s Good Friday for the Christian calendar, so Happy Good Friday to everyone celebrating!

How amazing was the weather in NYC yesterday?!  A balmy 62 degrees and finally feeling somewhat like New York City at springtime. It got me in the mood to share some more looks from St. Bart’s with you! This one in particular is my absolute fave because it just screamed RESORT STYLE!IMG_2486When I packed for vacation to St. Bart’s, this outfit really stood out, and the entire time I had this “I can’t wait to wear this!” feeling. I bought it from H&M two days before leaving—it’s from their Spring 2015 Studio Collection and it was love at first sight.  I literally got up and waited outside H&M on 86th street at 9:00am to guarantee that I would be one of the first people in the stores and also get my size. It was well worth it, because at my location there was only one size 4 set. Once I got my little Sherece paws on it, I heard the angels sing and the lights shine down on the iridescent pink sheer fabric. YES, LORD! A SISTAH LIVES! St. Bart’s was really calling my name. Clear skies, here I come!

I’ve never actually worn a kaftan, primarily because I’m just not really a cover-up girl on vacation.  New York weather forces me to keep my body hidden under several layers most of the year, so when I’m on vacation, the Jamaican lady comes out, embracing all things tiny, “suck-on,” and see-through!

 

This kaftan had a personality of its own.

 

This kaftan had a personality of its own. The palm leaves and gold cactus print on the pink silk background was vacation perfection!  The outfit was  flowy and beautiful, which provided an extremely delicate and sexy look. I felt like I was wearing nothing but my bikini and high heels.

I loved the burgundy detail on the pants. It broke up the busyness of the print when worn together with the kaftan, yet it could still hold its own with a white tank top or shirt.

Some of you may be wondering, “What’s the deal with gold python heels on vacation?”

These pants had shiny gold cactus printed all over—that plus my new gold-rimmed Chloe sunnies was just screaming seventies. I went full on James Bond Girl at a resort in St. Bart’s.

I could not tame the glam factor with flat sandals. These Giuseppes took the outfit to another level in my eyes.  Remember, the key accessory for each look you create must be confidence. If you love it, own it!

STYLE TIP!

A great way to update your woven bag is to tie a scarf on the handles. Choose a print that you love and watch it give all your vacation looks that resort flare they need. I’ve had this Michael Kors basket and the scarf for over 6 years. I buy scarves from all over from time to time. Each time  I change them, I feel like it’s a whole new bag with a whole new look.

Everyone on the island was in LOVE  with my look, from Point Milou to Gustavia. I was like the 007 girl on Mission #SLAY!

At the end of it all, who really cares about people liking what you wear? YOU’RE ON VACATION! Relax, enjoy, dress up, and create unforgettable memories!

Have an amazingly Happy Easter, my lovies! xoxoSB
