Nothing is quite as good as black and white.
There is nothing ground breaking about this color combination
It's mainly about how you wear them that matters!
I am the queen of mixing odd items together, it keeps things interesting for all of you...
And in turn it keeps me challenged with my wardrobe!

This Shabby Apple midi skirt dress was a definite must-have for me...
I love the whole concept of Shabby Apple, providing vintage styles in modern pieces.
Here I paired it with my staple faux leather Motel Rocks jacket...
Which I've had for ages and can't get enough of!
I put my hair in a very interesting...IdontreallyknowwhatIdid low bun
and strapped on my go-to sandals.

How do you guys wear your black and white?
Would love to know!

Dress Over Pants

I've been infatuated with this dress over pants trend for far too long.
After pinning more than a handful of these outfits I thought that it was time I push myself
to actually try it out! 
It's very forward and I am anything but fearless when it comes to fashion.
 But...it was still hard for me to do because it can come off looking awkward.
After trying on a few different styles and colors this is what I came up with.

1. Always go for a loose style, something along the lines of a tunic or shift dress.
2. The dress needs to be something light-weight - cottons, jerseys and chiffons are the perfect fabrics.
3. Avoid color and print, you want the focus to be the unexpected pairing of the two items.
4. Keep it simple everywhere else.

This De Lacy high neck tunic dress was the perfect pick for this look!
Paired it with super fitted Zara jeans and a milk-maid braid for a cutesy spin.

What do ya'll think?

A month or so ago I did a story for DivineCaroline.com about how to achieve a French girl style.
Well, I think that my hours spent researching and writing have rubbed off on me!
It's safe to say that I am mildly obsessed with all things Parisian...
From baguettes, to macaroons, to bow ties and that perfect "undone" look.
But, we all know...I am not French.
Quite the contrary I am Armenian but no one said I can't act or look like it!

Which brings me to this outfit...
A personal bow tie made by my best friend Jenna
and an a-line midi skirt are the perfect outfit essentials for a tres chic look.
The skirt is from my new favorite shopping site Shop Loeil...
Everything from the merchandise itself, to the website design to the photography is on point!
I highly suggest a visit.

Hope you're enjoying all of my looks can't wait to post some Fall fits!

All good things come to an end...
Sad, but true and my NYFW trip was one of them.
On the last day, Katelyn and I headed over to the Piers which host more of the higher end secluded shows.
We got backstage access to the Marc by Marc Jacobs show and it was...insanity!
The knotted faux-hawks by Redken hairstylist Guido, the models, the ambiance...everything you would imagine Fashion Week to be.
We decided to take in some sights and enjoy New York City for what NYC is all about.
Walking the highline was surreal and I felt like my true self in a vintage fringe skirt, crop top and boyfriend blazer.

What an amazing experience this was.
Thank you so much for following along...on Instagram, on my blog.
I hope you enjoyed all my looks...
But really...we all have favorites...which one was yours?!
