All White and a Little Bit of Leather

It is officially cold enough for me to rock a little bit of leather and I am so excited! Now, although it is time for leather accents and darker colors I am still slightly holding on to a little bit of sunshine and rocking my leather piece with an all white look.

Oh and excuse the in home decor, it was to cold to be snapping pictures outside 🙂

What I am Wearing:

Blazer: Ebay

Shirt: Forever 21 (old)

Pants: The Loft

Shoes: Nine West

I am currently having a major love affair with wide leg oversize pants. I would just like to warn everyone that you will be seeing them on my body a lot.

What are you lusting for this season?

Thanks for stopping by!

Peace Love Style,

The CHICcap: W Thinks Pink- Cure on the Catwalk

Oh…..hey there!

It’s been a month, I know and for that I apologize. I’ve been working on something great for you guys and I know you will be as excited as I am about it when I do my grand reveal 🙂 As my blogging has been quite low, my social life has been actually quite high. I’ve been attending so many events in Atlanta, it has actually been overwhelming, but fun!

Recently I was granted amazing opportunity to be a style guide for the annual Cure the Catwalk fashion show hosted by the W Buckhead. Cure the Catwalk was created by the Pink Heals Foundation that helps cancer survivors get back in their heals and back to a fabulous life after conquering cancer. I had the pleasure of working with India who was just a joy to work with. She had never met me before and she allowed me to take full control of her look and I think that after trying on a couple of different looks we ended up with something quite chic. All of the pieces India modeled were provided by Fab’rik.

I wanted to make sure that India had a glam look would pop on the runway but could also be worn to a night out on the town, you know a little double inspiration 🙂 We both fell in love with this great pleated maxi dress that had a chic peek a boo sheer bottom. To add some sparkle and texture we layered the maxi with a bold sequin jacket and finished the look with a pop of color with a beautiful emerald green necklace, classic Dominique 😉 LOVED this look on India! She looked amazing!

I had such an amazing time, met great people and got dolled up for a cause. Be sure to head over to the Pink Heals Foundation and learn more about how they are encouraging fabulous lives for all of the beautiful survivors out there!

Thanks for stopping by guys!

Wrapped Jolie Leg

Well hello there! Yes, I am still around and blogging. I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus lately. So many changes all at once, it has been an emotional roller coaster to say the least. But I’m back and ready for some action! Hence my bold split detail.

A wrap dress should be a staple piece in everyone’s closets. They suck you in and shape you up and create a dreamy silhouette. This particular wrap dress adds an extra piece of “hey now” to my over all look. You guys know how much I love to take a classic piece, keep it simple and add just a slight bit of edge. To vamp up this look I took this great shell necklace I found on one of my treasure hunts and added a modern punch with a pair of neon pumps.

What I’m wearing:

Dress: old

Necklace: vintage find

Pumps: lulus.com 

Funny thing about this dress is that it has been chillin in my closet for years but somehow worked its way into an ultra chic look. Have you ever found an old piece that worked in present time just as much as it did back in the day? Angelina ain’t got nothing on me! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by everyone!

Peace Love Style,

“How’d you put that together?!”: Elizabeth

I’ve always said that I think one of the hardest styles to pull off is simple and classic. In a world where fashion can get pretty complicated, it is very refreshing to find someone who takes simple to a place that keeps it interesting. I ran into Elizabeth’s blog on where else other than twitter, I love that site! I fell in love with A Keene Sense of Style because it captures the way simple and chic should be displayed with classic lines and modern tweaks. It also helps that Elizabeth is such a doll! She wears her style effortlessly and it fits her so well!

Check out how she turned this look out and put it all together:

1. How did you put your look together?


I put this look together by starting with the key piece, this beautiful dress. I looked into my closet and knew that it was what I wanted to wear and then the wheels in my brain started spinning (as they usually do). I saw the scarf and immediately knew I wanted to incorporate it. First I tied it around my waist, and it just didn’t speak to me, then I tied it around my bag and it was the perfect addition. I kept the rest of my accessories simple by adding only a statement (clip-on) earring, and my go-to gold Michael Kors watch, followed by nude Louboutin shoes and my blush colored Prada bag. I love the way to pastels play off of each other. To top off this look I added a bold red lip for a little unexpected pop of color.

2. How would you describe your personal style?


I would describe my personal style as feminine and polished. I feel most confident when wearing dress and skirts and I always find myself gravitating towards materials like silk, chiffon, and lace.

3. What advice would you give someone who would like to achieve this look?


I would say to start with the dress and work around it. Be sure that whatever you pick is nicely tailored, a great fit always makes the outfit.

4. Where did you purchase the items you are wearing?


Dress: ASOS, Earrings: Forever 21, Watch: Michael Kors, Bag: Prada, Scarf: Vintage, Shoes: Christian Louboutin

Meshed Martini with a Twist

To say we were experiencing a heat wave is an understatement. This weekend I baked and broiled my way through the city and made sure I did it as cool as possible. I attended the Lily Kai Vintage Style Suite this weekend at the Buckhead Bottle Bar. I shopped, I drank, I ate and had a great time spending time with some of the fashionable women of Atlanta. It was so hot I left my camera in the car and didn’t get one shot of the fab event and I’m a little upset about that. Nontheless I really enjoyed myself and here is what I wore 🙂

What I am wearing:

I am thrifted from head to toe. I randomly have these style epiphanies that can’t be found in an average everyday go to shops. So I take to consignment shops and thrift stores to find a unique piece to display my random style idea.

I wanted to make my look pop and slightly more festive so I added my martini print scarf. This scarf brought a little life to an overall clean look and it also saved the fate of my neck from the heat. If I wore my hair down I am sure my neck would have fallen off. These sexy ankle strap sandals complimented the less is more mood of this look and paired nicely with the unique woven clutch. I really love how the look came together. What do you guys think?

Thanks everyone for stopping by! Enjoy your Monday! And Happy holidays 🙂

Peace Love Style,

I’d recommend rocking them with a simple pair of jeans and white t-shirt and you are sure to be ahead of the style curve. Here are a few of my favorites on the market now.
