Wanted: Winter Coats

“Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.”  ~William Shakespeare

Wanted: Winter Coats

Hey Sweetie Pies! Happy Friday! It is finally starting to cool off in Houston (well at least for right now) and I got to thinking about how many actual jackets and coats I actually own and the fit. A lot of my coats that I own right now are more on the fitted side, which is nice and all because I do like to show off my figure. However this is not ideal when often times you have on layers of clothes during the colder months. Lately I have been ALL about that layering life. So I got to thinking about what coats I want and need for the cooler months ahead.

I really want a nice long menswear inspired trench coat to easily throw on top of an outfit to add juxtaposition. I would like a cocoon coat and cape to easy drape on top of dresses. I need a new leather coat with silver hardware because the one I have right now has gold hardware. I also would like a coat or two in a bold color because all my trenches are in black or navy blue. A bright color coat could easily liven up a gloomy winter day. Thanks to the Chanels of Scream Queens, I GOT to have a fur coat lolz. And lastly thanks to Kim K, a bomber jacket in an olive green is a must have! I wouldn't mine one in a black as well because heck I love Black!!!

As always, the coats pictured above are linked. Some are splurge worthy while others are for a nice price point, under $50!!! (You're welcome!) Have a great weekend!

As always, XO and Stay FAB! ~ Stormie

How to Make Metallic Work for your Office Wardrobe - Twirling in Rose Gold

"To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily. To not dare is to lose oneself." ~ Soren Kierkegaard

Hey hey sweetie pies, happy Tuesday! One trend that I am loving for Spring is the metallic trend. I am spying it everywhere from shoes to clothing to accessories. I raved awhile back about my obsession with this skirt that I got from Charlotte Russe. I love it so much that I had to feature it again on here! For this particular look, I opted to for a more work appropriate ensemble. I paired it with this ruffle blouse that I got ages ago from New York and Company. Even though this piece is no longer available, I linked some ruffle blouses just as fabulous as they are affordable below.

To keep it business casual, I opted to pair it with a blazer and my fave booties. That way you are still covered but fashionable. You can totally make metallic work for the office by letting it be the focal point and pairing it with neutrals. That way you won't be going overboard, especial…

How to Style - B+W Striped Dress 3 of 3 Ways

"We must be willing to let go of the life we planned in order to have the life that is waiting for us." ~ Joseph Campbell
Hey hey sweetie pies I am excited to show you the third way that I styled this dress from Rainbow. I opted to wear it tunic style with a pair of jeans and strappy heels. If the length is too long you can opt to leave two or three buttons closed and tie the ends of the shirt into a knot. It helps you  pull off that easy casual look. You can easily create variations of this look by swapping a few things. You can easily swap out the heels for some flat mules for the perfect casual spring outfit. Or you swap out the jeans for long distressed shorts with sandals for sexy casual look. Even though I have styled this dress 3 ways, the options are really endless. Make sure to check out the 1st or 2nd way that I styled this dress. Which look is your fave? 1, 2, or 3?! Leave your thoughts below I would love to hear!
