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!

Stay Beautiful

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

My Fashion Favorites {July 2014}♥

Quick Update: Hello my loves! It's great to be back and blogging for you all. I've really missed just being able to sit down and write. Thank you all for sticking with me while I've been away, my schedule this month has been absolutely insane. As much as I'd like to simply relax for a while, I don't see that happening any time soon. But having said that, I've been working like crazy to make some new posts that I think you'll be very excited about so stay tuned! You can also find me on all of my other social media sites, so make sure and follow me there for updates (Links will be at the bottom).

Anyways, today I am going to be sharing with you some of my favorite things that I've been wearing and loving like crazy this month. I hope you enjoy and as always make sure and let me know your thoughts!


Now normally I'm not one to shop at Christopher & Banks. While yes, they have great quality clothing as well as a wide variety of different items, but personally I don't really like 99% of what they sell. It's just an opinion of style! But having said that, I really do love this beige knit sweater. It's great for wearing over a cami in the summer and goes with many different accessories which I love as well.


This dress was originally bought in Hawaii. I had to get it taken in in the shoulders since it was too big, but once I did it was a perfect fit! I love the colors in this piece as well as the lacey middle. It's feminine, fun, and perfect for summer!  


These jeans have been so much fun to wear with printed heals! Since I'm pretty petite, I like to roll up these just a little bit so they hit my ankles. This gives the allusion of being a little taller. (And we all know I need that!)


Oh my goodness. I cannot tell you guys how much I adore this Steve Madden bag. I got an amazing deal on this bad boy and have been using it every day since. I love that it goes with everything and adds a little something extra to almost any outfit.


These Celebrity Pink flats I originally bought to wear on the 4th Of July, but have been wearing them more than I thought. I'm really loving them lately!

Stay Beautiful♥
