Olympic FEVER!!!

I am so excited at this point in time!! I know that I don't seem like a "Sporty Spice" but I absolutely LOVE LOVE the Olympics! It started last Friday and I have been literally sleep, eat, and breathing the Olympics!!! They have made it so that every second is LIVE on and I have been watching it non-stop! So this is pretty much a post about how awesome the Olympics are!! Are any of you watching the Olympics???

Something that I have noticed and I am sure that you all have noticed as well! Are the awesome nail art the Woman of the Olympics are rocking this year!!! Here are some of my faves:

Miss Franklin, 17 - First Olympics and First Personal Gold, July 30th

Ruta Meilutyte, 15 Lithuanian First Personal and National Gold Medal in 100m Breast/Swim Event 

As you can probably tell I am a sucker for an upset and a underdog story!!! I absolutely loved these girls wins and their awesome "Home Town" Pride Nail Art!! For more of this awesome nail art trend from awesome Olympians click HERE!!!

Hope everyone is having an awesome Olympic season!!! :)

Trend Watch: The Optical Illusion

Hi everyone! I am here to share with you this amazing new trend that I just discovered! I know that we women are the masters of the optical illusion with our: belts, make-up, Spanx, and high heels! It all can be pretty exhausting! Now there is a trend that allows you to achieve your best possible body with just one piece of clothing: THE PANEL DRESS! 

This dress fetish is taking over all the hottest clothing lines this summer in stores like: H&M, Forever 21, Zara, and ASOS! This panel dress trend has picked up due to the it's sister trend vibrant, geometric prints! The Panel Dress trend is basically the use to contrasting colored panels on the side of dresses, skirts, and even pants in order to create a slimmer and well-defined silhouette! This can include the use of a vibrant print with solid panels on the side or "old-fashion" solid color-blocked panels! 

Optical Illusion - Panel Dresses

Lipsy panel dress / Lipsy body con dress / Miss Selfridge panel dress / Warehouse cut out dress / A|Wear navy dress, $47 / Dorothy Perkins jade dress / TFNC panel dress, $33 / Wallis panel dress / Miss Selfridge cutout dress / Jane Norman body con dress, $55 / Arte Panel Dress - Dresses - French Connection, $70 / Dress - from H&M

3 Reasons why I am "Head-Over-Heels" for this trend:

  1. Fits Any and All Body-Types - I am a sucker for any piece of clothing that suit all body types (A-line, wrap dresses, jeans) because it can clearly enhance any body style. On a curvy girl (like myself) panel dresses can accentuate my good curves while hiding my other bits. On a not-so curvy girl a panel dress can create curves with the panelled design and give the allusion of an hourglass-shape! 
  2.  They're EASY!!! - Since many of the dresses are adorned with prints and beautiful pops of color the panel dress is a one stop shop. Put away your statement necklaces and belts and go for a more understated accessory look with stud earrings and colorful arm candy! And since this dress naturally shows your waist line no need to cinch your waist with a belt! 
  3. They're FUN, SEXY, AND CLASSY!!! - For summer there is no other way to be than loud and proud when it comes to your wardrobe! These dresses give you that fun pop of print and color and allow you to step outside of your "fashion box" and embrace daring prints and colors! Also, they are not only an illusion but an oxymoron! Sexy and Classy how can that be?!?! These dresses come in a variety of styles and shapes that allow these dresses to be appropriate for a party AND for the office!

Floral Blazer + "Curvy is Sexy" Vedette Review and Giveaway!!! {CLOSED}

Hi everyone!!! I have a majorly exciting thing to share with you today! It is Vedette Shapewear :) They so graciously contacted me and asked me to review their spectacular shapewear collection!!! I of course agreed and am happy to share with you my FIRST review on my blog!!! 


 I was so excited to receive these pieces from Vedette. When I received the pieces they were so wonderfully packaged I felt like I was receiving chocolates

Isn't it amazing packaging!!! I chose INĂˆS for my shapewear piece in the color Buff. I liked this piece because it is a classic piece (and I love classic) and would go with a lot of different things in my wardrobe for summer! 

How I decided to style this piece was with this beautifully unique Floral Blazer that I thrifted from Goodwill a couple of years ago! I wanted to make the outfit very daytime and casual so I just added boyfriend jeans and some classic bronze stilettos (for some added sass ;)! I think that keeping shirts or shapewear in this case ;) really simple is that you can really wear statement pieces!!! This piece really works as a great base for this outfit and I truly believe in having MANY basic pieces so that when you find something fabulous like this blazer you have the basic pieces to wear to really make it POP!

This Vedette Shapewear Piece is PERFECT as a basic piece to wear with many statement necklaces, blazers, and bottoms. And it doesn't hurt that it gives you great shape :)!
