{What I Wore} Head to Toe Au Faux + The Perfect LBD For EVERY Body

Hey Delights!

I attended a pre-opening event & tour of the new Eloquii Chicago store and a couple of weeks later I attended the official grand opening. I pulled out my fab Violeta by Mango faux leather cape & rocked a gorgeous asymmetrical one shoulder faux leather top with a vintage Eloquii skirt from a year or so ago & some oldie but goodie slinkback shoeties (similar style available in 2 colors).
All the blogger babes were there and I had such a great time styling my cousin & smiling at the transformation that took place for her in the dressing room. A little backstory. My cousin Sonya's style is relatively conservative but I knew the moment that I invited her to the event that I was going to get her to try some new things.

{What I Wore} Beautiful Black Velvet Layers

Hey Delights!

The Gwynnie Bee closet is always overflowing with fabulous frocks for any occasion but I especially love this time of  the year when I get to rock pieces like this Robbie Bee fit and flare dress.  I am living for everything velvet & this dress is beautifully framed in it & while that is a great detail on its own, the textured polka dots add a whole other level of fab to it.

It was in the 50's & chilly in Chicago so I pulled out some tights and layered this bomb Design History velvet bomber under my faux leather cape (last seen here) and added a pop of color with my silver heels (last seen here).

Hey Delights!

I recently hosted an afternoon tea for some of my Chicago blogger boos that was co-sponsored by Contessa of Plus Navigator and we had a really lovely time. There was lots of conversation and laughs and I wanted to share some of it with you.

The theme I created was centered around tea and bouquets, two of my favorite things. So I set up a bouquet bar and an ice tea bar along with hot tea & sweets and eats served at the table. Here is the bouquet bar. It was so lovely to have the big picture windows with the trees in full bloom framing it.

Hey Delights!

The Gwynnie Bee love continues! In case you are new around these parts and don't know, I have been a Gwynnie Bee girl since 2012 when I rocked this amazing batwing dress and peplum hounds tooth top from my first box.  Fast forward to 2017 and I have been werking the most beautiful dresses from them all summer long. And this gorgeous Taylor floral fit & flare dress is the most recent one.
I paired it with pops of pink with my fabulous pink ruffle mid heels & pink fold over purse (c/o Stitchfix similar) (last seen here).  These shoes make me smile so hard and I get so many compliments every time I wear them. They are just so fun. They also come in a sparkly silver color that I just ordered (on sale for $22).

Hey Delights!

It has been forever since Sean and I have done a What He Wore post, so I was itching to get back to styling him.  The team at boohooMan reached out to partner with me, so it was the perfect time to do so.  I knew that I wanted to get Sean into some nice color play for Fall and the Big and Tall collection came through.

In case you missed it, boohoo recently added Big and Tall to their boohooMan brand and I instantly loved the cool, laid back street style of the pieces. Sean is having a "Billy Idol" moment with his new blond hair so I played around with shadows when photographing it to bring out an edgier vibe.

{What I Wore} Head To Toe Metals

Hey Delights!

I purchased this metallic faux leather ruffle top a few weeks back during my first visit to the brand new Chicago Eloquii store. The skirt I am wearing was a part of the Essie x Kelly FTF collaboration with Fashion to Figure that I have had for months. And the shoes are from our wedding three years ago. And the bag is an old Coach favorite, the Chelsea Crossbody in Pebbled Leather (last seen here & currently available in 5 colors). It's on the smaller side but holds a ton of stuff.

I will legit be wearing this top as much as possible over the coming 'ber months, well as soon as the weather starts acting right. I mean it's supposed to be 90 degrees in Chicago tomorrow. No bueno. I am ready for Fall and dare I say it? {whispers....Winter}😶

Anyways, here are a few metallic skirts and silver shoes that are currently available that I love.
