Take me out tonight

Whether it’s a date night with your sweetheart or a girls night out with your besties, it is exciting and you always want to know that you look dazzling. I pieced together a couple of outfits that I think are appropriate for those nights out.

My tip for putting together any outfit is not to be afraid to experiment with accessories. Sometimes odd and unconventional combinations end up looking well put together.

For a date night out, enchant your sweetheart with a dress, show some skin but not too much. Leave room for imagination. I prefer the classic style with a hint of sophistication. A romantic candlelit dinner calls for a seductive look, which can easily be created with LBD.

We sometimes need to take a break from boys and do the date night right with our girlfriends. For a ladies night out I would opt for a cute, casual look and a comfy feel. Depending on the venue and your plans for the evening, outfit can range from casual to glamorous or anything in between.

I want to shine a light on a style expression that has no borders and I hope it makes your day brighter.

 

 

Stockyards – Fort Worth, TX

Welcome to the Cowtown of the Lone Star!

 

A historic district located in Fort Worth, the Stockyard is a place where we can step back in time and check out the culture, history and spirit of Texas’s. It is a great destination for anyone who wants to see the real southern style. Which is why I brought my mother here a few years back when she visited me.

 

I spent my Sunday afternoon here, shooting among historic buildings, enjoying live music, authentic Texas BBQ and grabbing a cold drink at a saloon style bar.

 

It is a definite must for anyone visiting Dallas/Fort Worth area. You will not only like this place for the things to see but you will also enjoy the experience of it. There is a longhorn cattle drive, rodeo show and tons of Texas themed reenactments which are all so fascinating.

 

I hope you enjoyed this post of my day in the Lone Star State.

Embellished

One of the ways to dress up and play with a solid attire is to accessorize it with a fun print, colorful pattern, or sequins, glitter, studs or an embellishment – like this bag from Zara. It is all about the detail. The stitching and sewing is very important in order for it to not look cheap. The bigger and brighter the detail, the better. I chose to add some color to this solid black dress to avoid looking boring or monotoned.

Garden filled with love

I live in a place where we can take a step out and walk into a beautiful garden full of flowers and fountains. I couldn’t pass an opportunity to stop and breath in this simple pleasure of life, while capturing an image and momentum of my home.

Close to my heart

I graduated from Texas Women’s University in Denton, where I acquired much knowledge and memories I am very fond of. I have spent many hours at school and surrounding areas, such as Andy’s bar, Jupiter House coffee shop, the library and the beautiful and relaxing lawn in front of the city hall, where people meet and hang out. Students go there to study and just enjoy the day and view of Main Street. Occasionally, local bands come out and play on the lawn. I was glad to come back and visit all the places I used to be so familiar with. Denton, TX will always be close to my heart.

Origami Skort

IMG_0079

This Zara skort was such a hit amongst the fashion bloggers. It is such a cute concept, shorts and a skirt? I was curious and excited to put together an outfit, but unfortunately it was a little too weird for my taste. It didn’t really go along with the things I have, besides I just didn’t feel good wearing it. I paired mine with a sheer blouse, and a wedge, perfect for a Sunday brunch.
Overall, I think it can look good, just not on me. I don’t believe it is as flattering as I want it to look and I will not purchase anything along the lines of shorts/skirt again.
Once again, I accessorized and used my scarf by wrapping it around my wrist.

Flirty Fuchsia

IMG_9968

This vintage dress is one of my greatest finds ever. In my previous posts I wrote about the passion I have for unique vintage clothing. Most of the vintage items I own had proven time and time again  their excellent quality and impeccable design, unlike contemporary fashion. You can tell that vintage clothing required more precision and attention to detail (like the button on the sleeve.) The dress truly has stood the test of time as it kept its shape and character. I have accessorized my bag with a scarf I used in the post regarding scarves and ways to accessories them.

Simply Vera

IMG_9917

I wear mostly dresses, especially in the summer time. Besides the comfortable fabric, I like dresses with unique patterns. Although, I place greater importance on the design of the dress, above all else. Vera Wang is known for her wedding dresses, but her Simply Vera line exemplifies an everyday sophistication. She maintains her small, signature detail in every item and offers a fair price point for her collection.

Flower Power

IMG_9835

I always had love for vintage clothing! Ever since I was a teenager, I’ve been stealing clothes from my mom’s closet. The quality as well as shape and design of vintage clothing inspire me to expand my collection along with closet space. More often than not, there is a sophisticated feel to vintage items. Like this flower print dress, one of many dresses I found from a consignment store. Every detail that goes into the making of each garment is precise and authentic. Each seam is carefully hand stitched and as a result, becomes unique in its own way. Unlike the products of today’s fast fashion industry, more love went into older items. I like to incorporate vintage clothing with modern pieces as I did in this shoot. Both the bag and the shoes came from a retail store.
