I can always find something I like at Lucky Brand. The modern hippie in me loves their tunics and boho/peasant blouses. I still have one from 2004/2005 that is tie-dye and embroidered at the neckline and hem. I love their graphics tees as well, especially the Men’s. The fabric on both feels like you’ve had it for years.

I liked the look of this on the hanger but not so much when I put it on. The embroidery is pretty and in Navy but overall I think it’s the rope halter tie that is the issue.

~ Hipster Bear Tank, Small {tee, Men’s tee} ~

I loved this tank. The Small fits well and it’s comfortable. To not look so “biker chic” I would probably throw on a blazer with the sleeves rolled up. The Men’s Tee has a graphic on the inside as well, so you could wear it inside-out if you wanted. Alas, the Women’s Tee and Tank do not come with this feature.


Dazzling Embroidered Top, Medium ~ 

The embroidered detail on this lovely blue top was so pretty but I couldn’t figure out what else to wear this with other than jeans and shorts. It deserves to be dressed up a little, don’t you think?

White Grommet Shirt, Small ~

I really liked the detail of this shirt as well as the fit but it is quite sheer. I was already wearing a nude bra and would have to find a different nude shade to go under it so it didn’t show through; or wear a cami under.

Lace Stripe Top, Small ~

There was no Medium in the store to try and other than the arms, I liked the fit of this tunic. I’m not sure if the Medium would run a little more voluminous through the waist. The Large was huge everywhere.

Another great thing I love about Lucky Brand is that almost everything is machine-washable. Cotton, linen or silk materials are what you’ll usually find the clothing made of. They always have great leather jackets and bags too.

Have you been shopping at Lucky lately?

Just a few bottoms I tried on at Lucky. Their jeans never disappoint and I’ve even switched Husband over to them, and he’s very picky about what he wears.

Colored Eyelet Short, Size 29 ~

The bits of neon on these shorts drew me right to them and only one size left, in a 29. The fit is perfect and my normal bottom size of 29/8. Just a super-cute short but I’ve over-indulged in short purchases this Summer so it was a pass.

Dylan Boyfriend Jean, Size 28 ~

I size down to a 28/6 in Boyfriend Jeans. These were still a little loose through the waist and hips but sizing down one more would have been too tight. These also have a button-fly, not a zipper, which I normally love. A great jean overall, if you’re looking for a Boyfriend style.

These were a much better fit than the Dylan. The feel of the denim was soft and very comfortable. I will probably unroll and have these hemmed for ankle length.

Have you visited Lucky Brand lately? What has caught your eye?

Last Friday night had me getting out of the house for a cousin’s birthday party. The theme was 70s and we were encouraged to dress up. Well, talk about a fashion conundrum! The 70s had so many styles from continuing the hippie trend from the 60s to jumpsuits to disco fashion (polyester!) to midi skirts to high-waisted shorts.

I went straight to my closet and found my Lucky Brand Legend High-Rise Trouser Jeans {polyvore}, my Nimbin Peasant Blouse and Nori Wedges. I parted my hair down the middle and straightened it.

It seems most people went the disco way a la John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever. There was even a “John McEnroe” complete with a curly wig and headband. Pretty clever!
My guys come home today! I am so excited and pray this day goes by fast. Of course, now that I’ve said that out loud it will be the slowest.day.ever. HAHA!
Have a Great Day!

This year I tried my best to post a lot more outfits aka Que Bella’s. Here are some of my favorites.

January – I loved pairing the City Mini in Dublin Tartan with the Navy Tippi. It made is less of a Christmas skirt.

February – Best thing I ever did was have these Cafe’ Capri Pants hemmed.

March – March was as blur as Dad had just passed away. I think this was my first real outfit of the month.

April – This was my anniversary outfit. I’ve since sold the dress in favor of the skirt and the heels are Louboutin.

May – Another outfit that didn’t make it to the blog but was one of my very favorites of the year.
Tipped Linen Schoolboy Blazer, Embroidered Eyelet Tank, Matchstick Ankle Jeans, Seville Wedges, Elephant Necklace

June – This Deco Pendant had such wonderful colors in it. Some of my favorite jewelry pieces this year weren’t issued online.

June New York Trip – The Tipped Linen Schoolboy and the Embroidered Eyelet Tank make their appearance again, this time with a Seersucker Pencil Skirt and Cece Ballet Flats. I had a Short-Sleeve Cardigan under the blazer which was perfect for the afternoon.

August – My first Madewell purchase which prompted me to get another in October while in California. This skirt is so very neon and the shape is beautiful.

September – Simple Navy and Ivory is what made this a favorite for September.

October – Everything about this outfit is comfortable but I felt so chic in it.

October Vegas Trip – A snapshot of these two made it to Instagram.
1) Lucky Brand Leather Tee, Fluted Skirt, Kate Spade Clutch, Janey Flats
2) Sequin Scoopneck Tee, Cafe’ Capri in Tile Jacquard, Janey Flats
October California Trip  – An all gray day on Halloween

November – The Schoolboy Blazer in Black is a fast favorite in my closet along with the in-store only Dorado Necklace.

December One and Two – There were two outfits that I loved!

I promised I put on decent clothes in July but I think I lived mostly in shorts, tee and swimsuits.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this year in review. I cannot wait to style for next year!

Happy New Year!

The Brocatto Peplum Top was the only item on my Anthro wishlist I wanted to see using the Anthro Day 15% off. I ordered a Medium and should have probably chosen a Medium Petite. It’s loose in the shoulders and chest and then fits in the waist. The material is a beautiful brocade but does look a little like Grandmother’s couch. Also, the Peplum is a bit “peppy”

I love the color of the Roses and found so many items in my closet that would work with this top. I just don’t know if I love it enough to keep it or exchange it for a MP, so I’ll need your help deciding.

I originally didn’t care for pairing the Brocatto Peplum Top with the Fluted Skirt in Ivory because I had a Flare at the hip and then at my knees. But, now, seeing it in an image, I don’t think it looks that bad. What do you think? A pencil skirt or even the Sterling Skirt in Crimson Maple might be a better choice for this top.

Second, is a jean pairing. These are Lucky Brand Legend High-Rise Trouser Jeans, with the Schoolboy Blazer in Navy and Studded Strap Booties from Anthro. If I wore this top alone with a jean I would go a skinny jean like the Midrise Toothpick in Carbon.

Lastly, I have on the Flair Skirt in Double-Serge Wool in Navy, the Factory Clare Cardigan in Cabernet and my Louboutin’s in Cranberry. This is a nice look and the Clare Cardigan goes well with the top.

I created a few other looks in my Stylebook but am really on the fence about this top. So even though I like it and I can certainly wear this 3 ways, and more, I don’t know if I actually will. I have enough dressy tops to go with these items but can it be casual enough for WFH?
What do you think?
