Color Scheme: Flame + Lapis Blue

Pairing these two spring colors make for a rich, lively and strong look. A toffee belt added to the outfit for two reasons: 1) to hide any imperfection with the waist line since the skirt is actually a dress with the bodice tucked in and 2) the color pairs well with flame and lapis blue. Honestly, I just threw the belt on and it worked. …

Should I Buy That?

I am sure you have heard or read it from so many sources to refrain from buying on impulse or buying what you need and not what you want. So have I. But as usual I have ignored those advises and just do me. When it comes to shopping, I am a love at first sight and MUST acquire chic.  I buy on impulse when …

The Modernist Aesthetic

About a month ago, I blogged about this neck-piece but in a longer version and different color (see here). Some of the comments it generated on So Modishly Chic Facebook page were nothing short of hilarious.

Pleated Petals

There is no spring fashion without flowers. This skirt is a beautiful addition to any closet.  I love that the skirt is not overwhelmed with flowers. I love the use of black to break the petals in layers. Can someone say pleats and lace, please? This skirt is pretty whimsical.  Feline flow, check. Flattering, check. It can be paired with any top – silk blouse, …

A Bohemian Statement Necklace

Things that most will tag as fashionably unusual is what gets my attention. This piece was a love at first sight item for me. Honestly! When I first laid my eyes the necklace on Polyvore, I immediately fell in love with it. I honestly thought it would make me look like royalty, which I already am. LOL! But trust my family members to make fun …

A Cute Bow Tie Front Sweatshirt

Get cozy in this beautiful sweatshirt. Not your usual but a stylish piece that will get you noticed and have everyone asking where you got it from. Styled here with a slim-fit straight leg pant. It will also work paired with a full midi or mini skirt. Since the top is not fitted on the bottom, make sure the skirt is full enough to create …
