ROSE -SLEEVELESS -CURVILICIOUS LACE- MERMAID-MAXI-DRESS

Happy Tuesday darlings, 

I hope you started the week on a fantastic note, and that you had a great time with the super-heroes in your life on Fathers’ Day. My crew and I had a great celebration… I’ve shared a few behind the scene moments on my insta stories, and some of my friends there, have reacted positively to the fact that my husband gave our daughters and myself flowers on that day which was essentially dedicated to celebrate him as a Father. As cliche as it may sound, I can’t say enough how grateful and blessed we are to have such a loving and caring dad and husband.

This outfit post is a little overdue… I’ve been trying to get it posted for the last couple weeks or so… I must admit that I may be experiencing a little bit of a blogger burnout. If you’re a blogger, I’m guessing you know this feeling all too well, but hey! I’m glad I’m finally sharing it. I wore this sleeveless lace mermaid maxi dress to a friend’s classic Casino Royal-themed birthday party; and it is as beautiful in reality! Unlike most lace and mesh details dresses,this lace mermaid style maxi dress with v-neck, mesh paneling and partial lining details is very comfortable! It has the right amount of stretch and though it is a “hugs the curves”, it’s forgiving and flattering. I think this will be the perfect unique, elegant yet sexy dress for your up coming event! 😉 Get it here

hypnozglam-article-victoria-beckham-for-targetHappy June Beauties! Can’t we just pause a minute and reflect on the fact that half a year is gone!? June is here, and no other month says Summer better than June; and guess what, the Queen Of All Things Posh is giving us a taste of her impeccable style with these collections at one of our favorite bargain retailers: Target! That’s right, Target is now a click or stop away into Victoria Beckham’s posh-inspired closet.

hypnozglam-article-victoria-beckham-for-target

This might actually be old news for some of you, because the collections launched about 2 months ago, but for those of you who don’t know, this is a perfect timing to introduce you to these couture-like collections that are offered to the rest of us.

hypnozglam-article-victoria-beckham-for-targetThe uniquely gorgeous creation couldn’t have arrived at a better time! The radiant colors and breezy florals combo is screaming “Summer!”… Both the fashionista and the mother in you (if you are the latter) will enjoy this even more, because Beckham’s own daughter and her love of fairytales inspired her to bring us some pretty cute and adorable little girls clothing and accessories… Those little boots are just Oh My Gosh! Beckham was aspiring to create a line that could “empower all women, all around America, no matter their budget.” I grabbed a few pieces for myself and my little one; and I can’t wait to share them with you.

I seriously can’t believe we’re half-way through the year already! The month of May has particularly been overwhelming and emotional! The good news is it’s almost over; and I pray and hope for a more poised yet productive month of June. At times, life will happen and things may not always go the way we plan to or wish for, but we have to practice acceptance and patience in all circumstances, and see the bright side of any situation. A tough call, but a necessary one for the sake of our own sanity. We all go through one or two things in life, and the funny thing is that nobody ever really knows how much anybody’s going through, or what they are struggling with. We could be standing next to someone who’s completely broken without even knowing it. Such is life; and that is why it is important to be kind to one another, because we never know what battle the next person is fighting. If you’re reading this, I pray that whatever you’re going through, you take courage and have the heart to believe that better days are ahead!

 

SUmmer-May-Look-In-recap

My outfit posts on the blog have rather been on a slower pace these past few weeks, (Read more about it here) but I managed to share some pretty chic and fun looks with you. I realized that not only I’ve stepped out of my comfort zone a little and played with mixing prints and patterns in my latest posts, but most of my outfits were african-prints or Ankara-inspired, which I love! It’s always great embracing your roots. Even though I haven’t always worn African prints a lot growing up, I do love wearing them occasionally. What I’m fond of, however, is styling an ankara look which has a modern or contemporary twist to it, allowing me to stay true to my style and my personality; and that’s what I did with these looks. I would like to know which one is your favorite. 😉 Summer-spring-maxi-prints-maxi-dress

TGIF Everyone! 

Mixing prints and patterns can be a “scary” thing to do! Especially when you come from a fashionable yet conservative family were certain things are considered Fashion faux-pas, you would grow up with certain beliefs and mindset until you experience and evolve with your own style. Even just a couple of years ago, I probably wouldn’t have paired floral with floral… I have to admit that for me, it would just be a bit too much going on. Although, I honestly think that when done right, mixing prints, patterns, and colors is fun and looks good. As you can probably see here, I’m still a little shy about the whole mixing prints and patterns thing; and it may not be obvious with this look, but I am evolving. 🙂  I can’t believe I’m about to say this,  but I actually can’t wait to share an #ootd with you where I’m mixing bold prints, patterns, or colors to create a fun yet chic look. Fashion is all about taking risks, stepping out your comfort zones (sometimes), and having fun doing it, right!?

I adore these floral shoes!  In fact I styled them with a print maxi in this post, and very similar ones with a print blazer here! Ha! I told you I’m trying… 🙂 They’re probably my new favorite summer shoes. This floral skirt is an oldie but a goodie. (Also seen here) What if I told you, I’m wearing one of my sexiest little black dresses as a top, tucked in the skirt in this post? Yes, you can check out how I styled the dress here… But let’s talk about this statement fringed necklace for a second! A very versatile piece that goes well with almost everything! I think it’s a must-have!
