There’s something about this dress that makes me feel like a 50’s housewife. Maybe it’s the candy striper vibe or the punch of red in the belt, but with the statement necklace and the shooties gives it a modern vibe.

As a woman who doesn’t care much about award shows themselves, my only concern comes to what is worn and by whom. For this year’s Emmy’s, I found patterns, punches of red, and strong silhouettes to be the most alluring. Take a look at my top picks!
A long, long time ago when I was a young child way before the obsession with fashion, style, and beauty, I had a different obsession: Star Wars. There was something so mesmerizing about this galaxy, the fighting, and of course,
young Harrison Ford. Fast forward to February 2014, and to my surprise seeing rather large images from the George Lucas film on beautiful gowns from Rodarte. What???? C3PO is on a designer dress?! Talk about two worlds colliding (at least for me.)
So this is where the inspiration for my outfit for today came from, but instead of Rodarte I stuck with a Forever 21 graphic tee, a maxi skirt, and some wedge sneakers. May the force be with you.

I always had a tinge of hesitation when it came to wearing boyfriend styles clothing due to my petite size. I couldn’t have been more wrong especially when it came to boyfriend jeans. I mean the jean is SUPPOSED to be cuffed so if I have to roll it one or two more times to make it work, then so be it. However, anytime I wear this kind of oversized, destructed denim I’m sure to pair it with some feminine pieces like this leopard blouse and pointed to heels. For me, it’s all about balance.

For anyone who knows me, this may come as a shock. I have purchased a pair of converse. I know the popular sneaker is a great staple to have for weekends and when you want to be comfortable, but being as short as I am, the only sneaker I wear (with the exception of working out) had a wedge.
But when I saw the new Converse x Missoni collaboration, I knew it was a sign from the fashion gods that it was time for me to get on board. And now that I have them, I’m hooked!!
I have definitely been more adventurous with trying things I normally thought I couldn’t wear because I’m not stick thin. But with the help of my co-workers and a little trial and error I seem to have pulled off a crop top!
The key here for me was to pair this floral Topshop crop top with a high waisted A-line skirt, also from topshop. This left a small sliver of skin exposed at my mid drift, enough to make it edgy but not enough to make me feel uncomfortable.
