Kendra & Shoes: What Else is There?!

20140130-081001.jpg

I went to the “mothership” {which is always either Home Goods or KS} on Friday to check out the new Atlantic and Neon collections by Kendra Scott! GORGEOUS! Of course I picked up a couple things: something old, something new, something neon, something blue!! Note: I shopped at the Newport store with Kendra Gals Christina, Madison and Larissa- they are FABULOUS! If you go, ask for them!

Left the house wearing this:

LITERALLY IN LOVE WITH THIS LONG, FRINGE, TURQUOISE NECKLACE (below)!!!!! I HAD TO HAVE IT! It’s not from a new collection, but it is definitely timeless! This turquoise blue mama will be a long-standing staple in my jewelry closet…no question! I’ve already worn it 5 or 6 times; both regular and backward. In love! Kendra, this gorgeous necklace is my personality piece for sure!

Also had to have this RAD Rayne necklace in Neon Yellow; it’s one of my fave signature colors! The perfect highlight to any outfit! Thanks for the Polaroid, Madison!

Wearing the goods…

Here’s a quick pic wearing the same necklace, the way it was designed from the front. Styled with Kendra Scott Genevieve earrings. I love its diversity!

20140130-110210.jpg

And the NEON YELLOW!!!! This necklace has so much detailing in the metalwork, and the quality is superb. I love that it’s lightweight and instantly pulls my look together. This color is hot, hot, hot!

Such a fabulous time at Kendra Scott! Follow us on Instagram @fashionbeautysisters.

Going Out!

What do you do when you aren’t in the mood to full on blow-dry-and-style your hair? 1 HAT + 1 LOW SIDE BUN = INSTANT HAIR STYLE! Boom! Easy.

It’s no secret that I love a great wedge hi top sneaker! Buyers beware: there are many weird looking ones out there! Be very choosy. These Aldo’s are my fave signature wedge kicks; sleek, classy and fabulous. Also, IN LOVE with this wide-brimmed hat!

20140110-180845.jpg
OUTFIT: HAT, Shop Primadonna // JACKET, Forever 21 // PANTS, Bebe // SHOES, Aldo.

Fun Fact: Every piece of this outfit has appeared several times on the blog before, in other outfits (besides the hat)!!! A great wardrobe is about mixing and matching key pieces. No need to break the bank!

What I Wore: Last Breakfast of 2013

My husband and I enjoyed our last breakfast date of 2013 in Laguna Beach. A clear, but crisp morning called for layers! Bidding farewell to December, I wore pine green, Christmas red, and snowy white!

20140104-092930.jpg
DETAILS:
GREEN SCARF: Forever 21
DISTRESSED JACKET and FLANNEL SHIRT: Abercrombie & Fitch
SUPER COATED SKINNIES: Bebe
HI-TOPS: Aldo Shoes

Happy 2014, everyone! May it be filled with miracles, joy and lots of LOVE!

Casual Dinner Party!!

The hubby and I went to a FABULOUS, fun, laughter-filled, DELICIOUS dinner at a great friend’s home. We enjoyed incredible food, and even better company. I wore this outfit, and included a shot of the pants so you could see the cool texture. They are Bebe Jeather Skinny Icon pants (jean + leather = jeather).

20131119-223023.jpgABOVE: PANTS: Bebe // TOP: VS PINK // NECKLACE: Forever 21 // ARM PARTY: Guess, Kendra Scott, Stella & Dot // HEELS: Jessica Simpson (SUPER COMFORTABLE HEELS!!!!!).

If you go with skin-tight pants, be sure to wear a looser top to avoid looking like “The Wondrous Spandex Lady!” And pump it up with great accessories. Happy outfitting!

20131119-223619.jpg

Quilted Leather & Camo!!!

A quilted leather jacket is a MUST for the season, and camo pants (very on trend right now) have always been a favorite of mine. I love the quilted arm, structured shoulder, and cloth/zipper torso details on this jacket… Paired with moto boots that I found at TJ Maxx.

20131023-090720.jpg
These earrings, normally SUPER pricey, I found for only $10.00 on eBay!!!! They are authentic Tasha brand (sold usually at Nordstrom). Can’t beat this quality at this price!

20131023-090912.jpgYou don’t need to break the bank to have fun style. Buy basics from bargain stores and put them all together in a way that you love!

20131023-091241.jpg

SUPER Fun LBD!

20130906-202431.jpgI absolutely love this LBD! Such a fun fit-and-flare cut. I styled it with a voluminous pony tail and fabulous statement necklace, for a polished look.

A lot of people asked where my dress was from, and I almost didn’t want to tell them! It was such a steal from TARGET! I should have gotten two of them because it was so inexpensive. Necklace is from Forever 21 ($9.00).

You could style this dress a million different ways- casual, dressy, you name it! It’s an amazing closet staple!

Dance Intensives: Studio Look

It’s important to dress for the occasion, and work is no exception! I have coached hip hop intensives over the past couple weeks, and this was one of my favorite looks.

20130830-073952.jpgABOVE: PANTS & SHIRT: Forever 21 // HAT: Lids // SHOES: Nike SB.

If we have a networking event with other dance companies, I dress professionally. For ballet class, a leotard of course, and for hip hop I get funky and fresh with it. Having the right ensemble really sets the tone and gets me pumped for the task at hand! This is a hair and make up look I had with a different hip hop outfit. The hoops are from Francesca’s, and I’m wearing Lancôme Hypnose Star mascara.

What I Wore Today

Today I wore this quilted white leather jacket, black top, army green pants and heels. The weather was finally cool enough to wear this glam jacket; I like the zipper pocket details and wrist buttons. I accessorized with the “J Crew Venus Flytrap Necklace.” Hope this gives you an idea for your next casual, fun outfit!

20130720-220415.jpg Close-up of the necklace:

20130720-220836.jpgHair, make up or outfit questions? I would love to answer them!

Layer It Up for Alaska!!

“Dress in layers because the weather can change at any moment!” That’s what everyone told me before my trip to Alaska. Prep for rain, snow, cold, hot; you get the idea. These are the layers I wore in Icy Strait Point, Alaska. Even though there was super light rain, I wasn’t cold at all. This outfit was perfectly functional! My boots were just right for all the terrain we covered too! It was a really fun day!!

20130718-183926.jpg YELLOW THERMAL: Target // JEANS: Abercrombie & Fitch // BOOTS: Sorel, Caribou // BELT: American Eagle Outfitters // PINK JACKET: Forever 21 // VEST: Columbia // INFINITY SCARF: Lulu Lemon.

We had an amazing 5 mile hike in Icy Strait Point. My husband took this photo of me among the trees.

20130718-184827.jpg

Anchorage had far less rain and mud, plus it was a little warmer! So I changed up the outfit with different pants, hiking shoes and dropped the scarf. It was great for another 5 mile hike! BELOW: JEANS Abercrombie & Fitch, boot cut vintage wash // HIKING SHOES: The North Face.

20130718-185814.jpgI’ll post more outfits from my trip, and if you ever go to Alaska, it’s TRUE: Dress in layers!

Father’s Day Outfit

Here’s what I wore on Father’s Day. Its SO comfortable, and I love the pop of color.

20130623-053304.jpg Best part: the ENTIRE outfit is less than $22.00!!! Most people pay more than that just for a shirt. SKIRT: Forever 21, $7.00 // TANK: $5.00 at one of those trends for less places // NECKLACE: amazon.com, $10.00.

You might recognize the skirt from another post. It’s versatile!

20130623-053734.jpg Always make sure you can wear your clothes multiple ways before you buy them, that way you get the most out of every piece. Plus it’s fun to mix and match!

Last Minute Rush? Maxi and Hat!!!

I wasn’t even out of my pajamas yesterday, when I got the call for a great meeting … To be there in 45 minutes (that meant leaving the house ASAP). Needless to say there was no time for the regular routine. What to do in that situation? A maxi skirt and hat can work wonders!!! Looks like you put care and effort into your appearance, and it’s fab. My Kendra Scott “Cora” ring completed the whole look. Something about a great cocktail ring makes your ensemble look put together.

20130609-080449.jpgSHIRT: Wet Seal // SKIRT: Forever 21.

20130609-080501.jpg I usually wear my Cora ring on my fourth finger, right hand, but here’s a pic on the index just so you can see how it looks on. This ring seriously matches EVERY outfit!!!! Whether its running errands in jeans and a tee, to a black tie event- this is a MUST-HAVE in my jewelry arsenal.

20130609-080907.jpg Now, go run out the door with confidence! Don’t forget your most important accessories: your smile and joy!

Wedding, What I Wore

My husband and I went to one of the most fun weddings I’ve ever been to. The bride wore a strapless fit and flare gown with beautiful lace and beaded detailing along the ivory dress. The ceremony, reception, cake, decorations, music, and everything in between were all perfect! This is what I wore:

20130609-000711.jpg The days of “no black” to a wedding are over! Long gone! Black is super chic and respectful. I had the honor of saying the blessing over the meal at the reception, so I wanted to be especially apropos for the occasion.

A closer look at my accessories and make up…

20130609-000922.jpg The necklace is exactly the same style as some of J. Crew’s best jewels, and it was a hit throughout the evening! I love it. Do you have any fun events you’re dressing up for this season?

Looks I Wore Over The Weekend

My incredible boss and mentor at the studio turned 70, and it was a JOY to celebrate her. One of her fave color combos is pale pink and black. Here’s the look from Saturday that I wore to her party:

20130521-083936.jpg
The hubs and I had a date night over the weekend (lucky me!)… I sported this moto jacket á la Janet Jackson, with super fun pants and shoes.

20130521-084236.jpg

20130522-072454.jpgThe Enzo shoes I’ve wanted for a long time, and finally got them on sale at Haute Look! If you have other types of weekend outfits you want to see put together let us know; we’ve been LOVING your questions and fashion requests!!!!!

Mother’s Day!

I LOVE celebrating family! Naturally, Mother’s Day was so much fun. I wore this, and I almost DON’T want to tell you where my dress is from! It is so well-tailored (the pleating is so good), and material feels so luxurious- you’d believe it was strait off the Bloomingdales floor. However, I love helping all of you get fabulous fashions for less…so here is the info!

20130513-224641.jpg
If you don’t follow @fashionbeautysisters on Instagram, then you’re missing out on a lot of real-time fashion! A couple of the Insta sneak peaks I posted yesterday:

Cold Shoulder Blouse // Day to Night

This is the first cold-shoulder top I’ve ever worn, and I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to try!!!! (If you know me, you know I love any style that shows off the shoulders.)

20130512-000459.jpgI had a full day at the studio, running hip hop dance team auditions (SO much fun). I had to jet home and QUICKLY freshen up for a night out. As soon as my husband said it was a hot outfit, I knew all I had to do was throw up the hair, change the earrings and switch to heels. BA-BAM!

20130509-130132.jpg The emerald green teardrop earrings are from Francesca’s; they are sold in various colors.

Looking for a fun way to vamp up the wardrobe without breaking the bank? Grab a fun chiffon too from Forever 21, like I did here, and you’ll be feeling fab! What are some of your night outfits that you’ve been rockin’ lately?

Casual Date Night!!

Date Night with the amazing hubs! It was 90 degrees outside at 6pm; so hot!!! I chose this fun, easy, and cool outfit!

20130505-074152.jpg
We had an awesome time. Great food, good laughs and even better company.

Dance Team Awards Banquet!!!

20130502-195749.jpg

20130502-195803.jpg I wanted to share this glam look with you from the annual dance team awards banquet, held for the competitive teams I coach. So fun to see everyone dressed up!!! Featured in a photo with me, above right, is one of my Senior Team Dancers, Rachel. She’s wearing a beautiful dress by Kirra, sold at PacSun. (Thanks for the pic, Rach!) Such a great night. Congrats to all my ladies!!!!! We ROCKED this entire season!!! Title-holding-champions! Go Capistrano Dance!!!

Chiffon Dress // Day & Night

20130419-075101.jpg
Above: Dress: Forever 21, hi-lo chiffon leopard tank dress, Necklace: J Crew, bubble necklace in Kelly green, Shoes: Steve Madden, Tampaa in black.

This was a really fun day dress! To shift into evening I added the J Crew Bubble necklace*, and revamped the hair and make up a little. I had a work event, and people went wild for this outfit (no pun intended). It’s so easy to pump up an inexpensive dress from Forever 21 with some fab accessories and styling. The necklace was the perfect pop of color. I had to walk all night, so wedges were the clear choice!

20130419-083401.jpg

20130419-083407.jpg
Hope this gives you some ideas for your next day dress look. What are your favorite accessories to take an outfit from cute to FAB?

20130419-081928.jpg
*J Crew Bubble necklace: I have one of these from amazon.com, and one authentic J Crew (pictured above). Get the real one, it’s WORTH IT! My other one is pretty, but it doesn’t even compare in quality. I’m all for a great “replica”- but I have yet to see a good one of this piece. If you don’t want to pay the hefty price tag on this necklace, get it barely used and truly authentic on eBay. That’s what I did! It was a steal! In case you want to know the giveaway of the imitations on eBay: the hardware holding the bubbles on. It’s a different shape than the J Crew hardware.

Coral Dress // Day & Night

I got a great question last week: Where do I buy day dresses? My favorite stores for day dresses are: Forever 21 (inexpensive & trendy), Ardeb B. (if you hit a good sale you can really strike fashion gold), Bebe (pricey, but the quality is BEYOND) and Loehmann’s (I’m a BARGAIN HUNTER so this is my mother-ship; best high-end brands for unbeatable prices).

Here’s the maxi look I wore on Friday in Beverly Hills & LA. I had a dance competition for all my awesome dance teams. My outfit had to be comfortable and functional! The key to daily style is mixing inexpensive pieces with high end pieces to make a complete, fab look.

20130414-215531.jpg
After running around ALL day, and getting all of our dancers situated it was time for evening competition. I took the hair down and volumized to change it up for a night look.

20130414-215648.jpg
These earrings are AWESOME with so many different outfits. I always feel glam in them!!! Kendra Scott is easily my favorite jewelry designer. Here’s a pic of the Danielle earrings from her blog (this is not my photo- visit blog.kendrascott.com) KENDRA SCOTT WEBSITE HERE

20130414-215908.jpg
Lisa Vanderpump (RHOBH) has these earrings too! Here are my white mother of pearl earrings up close.

20130414-220006.jpg
Be sure to tell me some of your favorite day dress looks! I love seeing how people put their fashions together. And WERK the look!

20130414-220119.jpg
P.S. For those of you wondering, my dance teams all did amazing and placed in top 3!
