Up your shoe game! Shoes you need to add to your closet right now!

 You have probably heard of "the little black dress", the must have style essential that you can re-purpose a million times but what about shoe essentials? Yes, there are shoe equivalents to the little black dress! 

 Here are our shoe must haves:
Party ready pump: These heels are ready for a night out but can be dressed down if need be. They fit like a glove and go with any outfit.  We like ours in classic prints- leopard, florals or in statement colors. Pick a pair that calls to your personal style and they will quickly become a fashion essential.
Chic flat: We love heels but sometimes a flat is just what you need. Perfect for work or play, they are great to keep in your purse in case you need to change shoes quickly.
 Summer worthy sandals: Because as much as we love flip flops; sometimes you need to make a more chic statement on the beach or by the pool.
 Cute boot: Just boot it! Booties or boots are closet staple and not just in the winter! They are a great option for winter leggings but also under summer sun dresses.
On trend wedge: Wedges are very versatile and they come in styles that range from sneaker to cork. Pick a pair of wedges that really reflects your personal style and add it to any outfit for an instant style upgrade.

 These  five styles are sure to leave your wardrobe ready for anything! So we've gone through our inventory and picked out our favorites at prices a girl can afford!





So what do you think? Are there any must have shoes we forgot? Which pair is your fave?

How to wear: Florals!


This season floral has been BIG. And it has no  sign of slowing down. 
Here are some tips on incorporating this trend even if you don't have a green thumb:


Go tropical
It's summer so we are all dreaming of escaping on a tropical getaway. Get the look without the plane ticket! Exotic floral prints are perfect for those suffering from serious wanderlust..
(Dress. Sunglasses. Purse. Heels.)




90s throwback
So if you aren't a super fan of super sweet blooms, consider a throwback print. Take it back to the 90s with sunflower and daisy prints. These prints are perfect for a 90s grunge inspired ensemble..  


Big prints? One piece
Are you a go big or go home type of gal? When picking big prints try to stick to one printed piece in your outfit. Big prints are fun but can be a little overwhelming with combined with more. Keep everything else simple and complementary..


Mix  it up!
Want to tackle two trends at once? Pair a small floral print with another print. Whats the trick to matching prints? Make sure they have the same overwhelming colors. In this outfit the floral print has a lot of pink and the plaid print also has a lot of pink. Try to stick to smaller or simpler prints. If one or both of the prints are too big and busy, the patterns may clash.

Always accessorize.
So if you love this trend but your closet is already full (is that possible?) the best way to get the look is to add accessories. Pretty floral crowns and cute floral print bags can instantly add this trend onto your existing favorite outfits.

Trend Alert: Kimonos


Kimonos seem to be in every store and magazine these days. These highly versatile pieces are an easy way to dress up an outfit or as simple bathing suit cover up.

The kimono trend is based on the Japanese traditional garment. The word Kimono literally means “thing to wear ”. This "thing to wear" has hit the industry by storm!  From lace, to tribal print, to floral, kimonos are great way to switch up your wardrobe.




Printed kimonos are quick way to take a basic plain tee and jeans and turn it into a completely different outfit! Quick tip: when layer kimonos over outfits; keep the volume with the kimono only. Stick to fitted tops and bodices to avoid overwhelming your figure in layers and layers of fabric!

As we mentioned earlier, Kimonos make a great beach cover up. Head to the sand by adding a kimono over your bathing suit for an ultra glam outfit. 
Another great way to layer with kimonos? Over your fave maxi! Dress up a maxi with new kimono for a completely reworked look

Summer is heating up, day and night!

Why not rock an edgy look and stand out in bright and fun colors. Our lookbook has some looks perfect looks for the pool to girls night out!


Our Sweeping TidesBustier Bikini Top and Sweeping Tides Bikini Briefs are perfect for a day relaxing at the beach. The bikini top has adjustable spaghetti straps to get that comfortable fit while the bikini briefs have a high waisted design which is all the rage this season. Comes in a variety of colors, which will you choose?


Not a fan of bikinis but still want to keep it flirty? This monokini is super figure flattering. The cut outs on the side will compliment your curves while still offering more coverage than a traditional bikini. 


Heading out for the night? Make sure you make it neon! This eye catching trend features heavily in our newest lookbook. You and your girls will steal the scene in neon pinks and yellow





Looking for more ways to wear brights? Take some inspiration from our Black Lace Lookbook. Pair a black jump suit or matching solid set with a couple of bright accessories.

Get down with your bad self! It’s the weekend!

Whether you're hitting the beach or staying home binge watching “Orange is the New Black,” we have got the perfect bad girl outfit you can flaunt. Who doesn't love a bad girl? They are eye catching, fun, and always know where the IT place is. Take it from Piper Kerman, the inspiration for the show. She is the real deal. 


We are not commending any serious law breaking behavior here we can take a few pointers. Step one: take on a ‘don’t care attitude’ by doing your own thing; like embarking on a spontaneous road trip. Bad girls aren’t afraid to go after what they want and that is what makes them so intriguing. 


To help you get in touch with your inner bad girl we chose a few pieces from own collection that break all the rules:





Like this Deep Plunge Bodysuit- Its edgy neckline and racer back is an essential piece. Orange naturally brings out the undertone of any skin color, but if that isn’t your thing it also comes in yellow, black, and white. The combination possibilities for this piece are endless.




Orange in doses works too like in this maxi dress. We love the chevron print and the studded belt that is included! The V shape print is more than pretty; it gives the illusion of fuller curves! Wear this with heels or flats!






Take this big bad bright trend on with something a little more office or school appropriate. This cute skirt is perfect for the good girl with a trendy edge. 


So what do you think? Is orange the new black?

HOW TO: Little White Dress


You've probably heard of the little black dress but how about a little white dress? This must have is hot for summer and just as versatile as a LDB. Here are just a few ways you can wear it:
Keep it simple. This minimalist look is a non brainer. Go for classic silver jewelry and heels incorporate one trend piece like this clear clutch





 You can dare to wear a LWD any day when you pair it with a statement bead necklace, layer on bangles and pair with cute booties. Catching a chill? Add a cute denim jacket


Free your festival spirit! Head chains are an alternative to the flower crown. Pile on dainty rings for more interest. Gorgeous gladiators are the perfect fit with this outfit. Pick a smaller purse to not distract from all the small details of your jewelry. 
Make a statement by layering gold necklaces. Pair with some tough girl booties and a quilted purse. Top it off with a hat that says it all. 


Tell us which way you will wear your little white dress!
