Pink and Blue Ombré Dress


THIS POST IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY GGB BUT ALL OPINIONS ARE MY OWN.

One of my favorite types of dresses for every season, and especially during the warmest season of the year, are maxi dresses. They look flattering on all body types and there’s so many different patterns, prints, and materials to use for this type of dress. Ombré - the gradual blending of one color hue to another, usually moving tints and shades from light to dark. This multi colored ombre maxi dress featuring accordion pleats, gold halter neck strap, and elasticized open back screams summer. Continue reading to see complete visual story of this cotton candy - colored ombré dress.

This pink and blue ombré maxi dress is available in a variety of colors, such as an orange/red and purple, yellow and pink/orange, and lavender and blue/purple. The dress is from GEEGEEBAE and are $45. Use my discount code SUZANNE for 15% off your purchase from GGB. I don’t recommend this brand to petite women, unless you’re okay with many alterations at your tailor, it’s all good, but if not, try a different brand amongst the many I wear and share on my blog.

The blue mules are from EGO Shoes and matched quite perfectly with the blue part of the dress. The heels are over four inches and are a bit hard to walk in (not something I’d wear all day long) but for the office or even a nighttime outing would be completely doable. They run at about $40 and the brand has a 50% off online sale happening right now you guys can check out here. As always, thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed today’s photos! Until next time, xo.

LOVE & XX’S,

You guys need to know about Katya Dobryakova! The fashion designer's line, based in Moscow and here in New York City, is nothing of the stereotypical Russian fashion. And oh man, do we likey! From eclectic circus-themed designs to gorgeous embellishments and patchwork, to pieces that are full of humor and satire - Katya will be one of the next game-changers in the fashion world. Check out this AMAZING wrap dress I'm wearing in today's post! I'm so in love with it.

With faux suede, the olive green tone perfectly balances with the brown fringe. And can we talk about my kitty-cats (leopards) hanging with me and this dress?! The patchwork is not just stylishly dope AF (pardon my French), but the craftsmanship is supreme. You can tell a LOT of work goes into each and every one of her pieces. You can even get a custom-made denim jacket with whatever idea you might have and Katya will hand-paint the piece herself. It really comes to life. She's painted Frida Kahlo, Biggie, Tupac, Homer Simpson; just to mention a few, and I just love personalizing a regular denim jacket into something more than just a name or a number. For anyone that likes playful, fun and crazy cool creative styles, Katya is your girl.  

Katya Dobryakova also carries this wrap dress in two other different colors. One is more all brown, and the other one has neon pink fringe, which would be super hot for the summer season! She also has some amazing discounts going on right now from her winter collection! Don't forget to shop down below and check out Katya at www.katyadobryakova.com

WEARING: ROSE GAL METALLIC GOLD MINI SCALLOPED DRESS | 
NINA RICCI SHOES | KENDRA SCOTT CARLA EARRINGS

THIS POST IS SPONSORED BY ROSE GAL.

Hey everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas weekend! What are you doing New Year's Eve? If you haven't found the perfect dress for the occasion, allow me to lend a helping hand! Gold is IN right now. And with this Rose Gal metallic mini scalloped dress, you'll be dancing the night away in no time! I paired the dress with champagne-colored satin slingbacks from Nina Ricci. I feel it complements well with the metallic as too much of anything, such as metallic on top of metallic, can be too much. The Kendra Scott Carla earrings are the loveliest droplets for this kind of glam holiday look. 

So... are you more of the going out type on New Year's? Or do you like to stay in and cuddle at home for the big event? I, myself, don't mind either and have done my fair share of both. I think when you're young and/or single it's a grand ole time to be out painting the town red. But sometimes it's really great to just spend time with the ones you love. If I have one tradition on New Year's, it's definitely with a bottle of champagne! I love Veuve Cliquot especially, do you have a favorite tradition on New Year's? I hope whatever it is that you do, that it is spent with the ones you love and cherish most in the world. Life's too short for nothing less than extraordinary in your life. To 2017 and beyond! Cheers. :)

Fall Fashion Trend Alert: Socks and Sandals

H&M CAMEL CARDIGAN W BELT | BCBG MAX AZRIA STRIPED BLACK/GREY DRESS
SHOE DAZZLE FAUX LEATHER PANTS | FAR FETCH MUSTARD YELLOW SOCKS 
ZARA CORK + LEATHER WEDGES | ALDO CROSSETT CROSS BODY

Happy Hump Day! Today I'm sharing a new fall look. This past month I've been so taken aback by every single fashion week, most especially with Miu Miu's new collection in Paris. Starting with NYFW (see my post about my experiences here) I was swirled with emotion from the 80's and raver culture-inspired Marc Jacobs show, and also JW Anderson's textures and Mulberry's stripes & colors in London. Let's not forget Maison Margiela's weirdness and Gucci's decadent & intricate vibes along with the risqué YSL show. Can you tell I'm kind of into fashion & style? Ha ha! 

So this outfit's theme is circulated around my many fashion week inspos, but more specifically, the idea of breaking the rules and making it new. Case in point: Socks and sandals. I bet a lot of girls (and boys) find this pair together a big no-no. However, sometimes something so wrong can be surprisingly, so right! At first I thought the styling of the platforms with the socks would prove to be too gimmicky/too much, but I think with the rest of the outfit it gives it a pop of vibrancy and strangeness. Style should not be taken so seriously all the time. Style is about having fun, trying something different one normally wouldn't try - taking risks. Taking chances. This is exactly how I felt about Miu Miu's latest show. Don't even get me started on their shoe collection!

Mustard yellow has been quite a prominent color for fall fashion and I combined colors I found to work with such a distinct color. Rust/copper, camel/beige tones with black and grey; a touch of pink and blue. And for the finish, I went for a vampy lip. I used YSL, but can't remember the name of the color. Ask and I'll check for ya! :) I've been carrying this tribal beauty bag from Aldo around with me everywhere. From our summer vacation to the Cape up until now, I simply adore its versatility as well. Transitional pieces are always good to have in your closet, as I'm not the type of girl to wear something once and that's it.

The belt is actually part of the cardigan, but instead of keeping it together, I separated them to give the BCBG Max Azria dress some shape as it's a maternity dress! No, I'm not pregnant. But I'm obsessed with oversized clothing at the moment, and speaking of transitional pieces, I know I'll have a reason to wear this dress again in the future. Fun fact about this maternity dress: It was the dress I wore to my hubby and I's first official date to a swanky Korean restaurant in Soho. Sadly, the place has closed since then but I remember eating next to Famke Janssen and how crazy I was about my man before he even started courting me. (*Omg, how old do I sound?!) 

Stay tuned for new upcoming stories on the blog! This month we'll be doing a pet photography piece, as many of you have been asking me how I get those amazing shots of MaQ! There will also be a love story about where and how my husband proposed to me, AND a very special feature interview with an acclaimed photographer releasing a new book in the beginning of November. And of course, continued styled looks and recipes. Can't wait to share everything with you guys, as always! Catch y'all soon. :)
