#MyCosmoStyle Challenge {3 Outfit Ideas}

I feel honored to be one of the few fashion blogger's chosen to do the #MyCosmoStyle challenge! A big thank you goes out to those who chose me and made this happen. Imagine yourself in the luxurious Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas for a day. Sounds nice, doesn't it? Here I have created for you three outfits (For different times during the day & different venues) that I believe would be great to rock on your next trip. Make sure and check out Vegas.com for all of your trip planning needs, you won't regret it my darlings! All of the items in these outfit's can be found over on my Polyvore page {Link at the bottom}.


When I was little, my mom always told me that wearing black and blue was never a good idea. I've come to realize more than ever recently that it actually can be a lovely combination. This outfit is daring, bold, and a beautiful idea for brunch at Wicked Spoon. 


This outfit is classy and feminine, with a very edgy twist. Black is a great color to have in one's closet because it's not only slimming, but statement. So my darlings, break out your little black dress, pair of heals, and rock that red lipstick for a dinner date at Jaleo.


Although I'm not really one to go out clubbing, this outfit goes out to all of my girls out there who do. This outfit is sexy, unique, and eye catching. I simply love the design of the dress and think it would be perfect to rock with a simple pair of pumps and studded black bag. 

Stay Beautiful

A Girls Guide To: Bras

Quick Update: Hello my loves! Thank you for all baring with me as I have been away on different trips and such lately.

Your feedback is always appreciated my darlings. Thanks for being the best fans and readers I could have ever asked for.

Ladies, we all know that bras are a necessity in one's closet. And today's post will be giving you some tips and tricks on how to pick out the perfect bra that not only fits, but is quality, has cuteness, as well as practicality all at the same time. 


First things first... Find your size. This is something that most women fail to do, and instead spend countless hours trying on bras that might not even be close to their size. It will save you time (Because really, who enjoys trying them on?) Many department stores do this, like Macy's, for example. 


Where should I start shopping? When I was younger, I made the mistake of shopping for bras at any place who sold them cheapest. And as I've grown older, I've come to realize how stupid I was for doing so. Please please please, do not go to Walmart and do not go to Target. They are cheap, never last long, and will not be as flattering as better and more quality brands. Although it may be a bit pricier, splurging a bit on undergarments is something I truly believe in. These are the base and the staple to your outfits.

Some good places to buy bras:
-Victoria's Secret
-Macy's
-Ross 


Tips & Tricks While Shopping?

-Find a bra that is going to feel good and fit well. Although it's hard at times (Especially in Victoria's Secret), try not to get overwhelmed by the cuteness factor and instead find something that is comfortable and something that you'll actually wear without it hurting you. Now if it's cute and comfortable? You have a win win situation my friend.

-Be aware of color and texture. If you're going for practicality here, make sure and have one skin color and one black bra. When you start getting into crazy colors, patterns, and textures it's a different story. Because let me tell you honey, wearing a hot pink lacy printed bra under a white tee shirt or tank top is not going to look good on a day to day basis. Fun undergarments like these are definitely great to have as well, but just make sure that you have the basics in your closet first.

-Bring a t-shirt with you. After trying on your bra put it on. This will help you see if it's going to look good and flatter you (Shape wise) under simple shirts like these.

That's it for today's post my loves, I hope you enjoyed and were able to learn a few things about finding the perfect bra. Doing so will change your life, I assure you. Good luck to you all!

Simplistic Rocker. {Mak's Polyvore Creations}

Simplistic Rocker.


Pinko black sweater
$160 - yoox.com


Frame Denim boyfriend jeans
$470 - oxygenboutique.com



When most people think of "Rocker Chic", people think of  lots and lots of layers. Chains, spikes, black, etc. In this outfit I show you how having a rocker style can actually be quite simplistic and easy to achieve yourself! Having a pair of boyfriend jeans are very important in one's closet, and I highly recommend investing in a pair my darlings.

Styled Person Of Interest: Jennifer Aniston♥

As I was trying to figure out who I wanted to spotlight today, my beautiful mother walked in my room and started to talk about how much she loves Jennifer Aniston. Perfect! I thought. Although Jennifer's style isn't exactly really unique, out there, or statement, she has a very casual chic look that I think is great for the simplistic woman who isn't looking to be the center of attention, but still look beautiful in what she wears! So in today's post I will be showing you some of my favorite outfit's that she has rocked over the years. 


Jen's style has a very edgy vibe to it. On her days off you will spot her wearing a leather jacket and jeans, usually with a scarf. She knows how to add just the right amount of edgy to where she still looks feminine and girly but while also keeping that casual rocker look.


I love love LOVE this dress on her. She has such a lovely figure and really, you'd have to have that to rock this number. Sometimes, simple is better. You see celebrities wearing lots of jewlery, bold patterns and colors, etc - But this is a perfect example that sometimes less is more.


I think this outfit would be lovely for fall. Layer with a scarf, long coat, a shorter skirt, tights, and boots. Also I really like how she uses lots of neutral colors in her outfits. She loves to mix beige's, browns, grays, and blacks to create a subtle but quite lovely look.


This is the perfect "Casual Summer" look. As I keep stating it is simple, but just stunning! Focusing your outfit on one statement piece (And by statement I mean a loud color, pattern, or design) and keeping the rest pretty casual can create a really great everyday look that anyone can replicate.


My inner rocker is absolutely obsessed with this. Dark colors, leather, buckles, *Sigh*, can she look any better? I think not. To achieve an edgy rocker look, layering is key. Layer necklaces, tops, scarves, etc to bring out your inner bad girl/boy!


If you have been reading my blog for a while, you know how much I love black and how much I love leather. I think that Jen achieves another edgy look here, without it being too out there. If you are someone who likes that rocker vibe but doesn't want to look too out there or crazy, this is the look for you.

So tell me my beautiful freaks...Which look is YOUR favorite?

Stay Beautiful

ADORE YOU.


Hello, my darlings! Today I'm showing you a casual outfit I wore shopping with my mom and sister. You know, anything with tassels and lace instantly attracts me. I guess you could say I find a lot of fashion inspiration from rockers like Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, for example. Am I weird to say that? Maybe. Do I care? Not in the slightest! 
What do YOU think my beautiful freaks?

Stay Beautiful
