Preggo Vibes 

It being that I’m practically 9 months pregnant, I’ve rediscovered my love for linen pants and loose shirts. I feel a little boheme in this look and not super edgy, but I imagine if I were to gather the strength to leave the house I’d throw on large, oversized black sunnies and killer wedges. None…

Today’s Look 

I can’t get away from doing a really glowy, natural look for my hair and beauty regime. I have a feeling it has something to do with that effervescent feeling that pregnancy can give you at times. Here’s a list of beauty products I used today for this look! 1. Vitamin C oil This will…

Preggo Blues – How To Spruce Up Your Style 

I’m currently 7-ish months pregnant. As a style lover (check out my Instagram – @theluxurie) living in the most tumultuous 7 months of my life thus far, in terms of my body drastically changing all the time, hasn’t just been hard to deal with, it’s been downright unpleasant at times. Don’t get me wrong, the…

The Essential Wardrobe: Denim & Pants

  In the last few articles I detailed some closet essentials that every girl ought to have as a basic foundation for your wardrobe. I see these pieces not as the ONLY pieces you’re allowed to have, but rather the pieces that form the skeleton, or the bones for the rest of your wardrobe. When…

The Essential Wardrobe: Blouses & Tee’s

Three days ago we chatted about what an Essential Wardrobe is and why every girl needs one in the article that also included your first batch of undergarment needs. Today we’re detailing the next step. Tee’s and blouses. You’ll notice throughout this series that the color scheme basically stays the same, apart from a few…

The Essential Wardrobe: Why Should I Have it? (And A Comprehensive Undergarments List)

My husband and I are in the midst of a season of life that includes lots of moving. Due to this, I’ve developed what I like to call the Essential Wardrobe. It’s the things that I absolutely MUST have in order to have a co-hesive closet that can be moved around easily, and can be appropriate for any situation whether dressy, casual, business appropriate or any other circumstance.

Mediterranean Vacation 

Do you ever start planning your wardrobe for a holiday thats weeks away? I did. And ended up with this holiday inspired look. I’m loving a style that speaks to that Italian and French tranquil, laid back resort look. Perhaps I should make a mood board… but I imagine lots of linen, silks, embroidery, muted tones…

Get Ready! Flared Everything Is Here…

We all know that trends work in cycles. One day it’s out, the next day it’s in. We can apply this same logic to the return of flared jeans. What was once a 90’s  girls’ dream jean has become the current go to. (I’m silently gasping). We can blame the re-awakening of 70’s style for…

The Best Spring/Summer Dresses

I’ve decided that it’s imperative that I invest in a few dresses this season. The options are just too dazzling. We’re talking metallics, whimsical whites, florals etc. You name it, it’s on the street and I need it in my closet. I’ve picked out my top 6 favorite styles and fabrics including a whimsical white,…

Two Garments, Five Outfits

Putting together an outfit is without a doubt one of the most frustrating things about getting ready in the morning. A part of this struggle is recognizing that you may not have a closet that works together, is cohesive. Having lots of clothing is great, but having clothing that works together is even better. The…

Must-Have Bags For The Perfect Closet

The perfect closet is like an elusive unicorn. It’s the closet that has all the latest on trend pieces mixed in with the classics and basics. The perfect balance between minimal and chic. Getting to this closet takes time, financial investment, and the knowledge that you won’t get away with abusing your clothing, but that…

How To! Wear Flirty Lacy Tops Like An Adult

I’m turning the big 3-0 this year and my nerves are almost shattered. Apart from it meaning that I have to admit to being half a real adult now, it means that there’s certain things that I just really can’t wear anymore. (An article about that later…) During New Years, one of my closest darlings…

The Bomber Jacket: Why You Need One

This 90’s grunge (at least in my memory) has taken quite a a major turn and presented us with a pretty unforeseen comeback. Sure Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid were seen wearing this but is that enough to make it a closet staple? It a little bit is. I remember seeing boys with jeans wrapped…

5 Great Reasons You Should Thrift

I love shopping at consignment and thrift stores. You never know what you’ll come across, and I’ve always managed to find real gems. Apart from feeling like you’re contributing to society by up-cycling goods that may’ve never had another chance, you’ll feel like you’re wearing unique pieces not accessible to every single person. 5 Good…

Winter Style: Palazzo Pants

I’m loving this look, how the shapes work together to create a visually intriguing outfit. Cropped sweater and palazzo pants are a classic, chic look, whether summer or winter, that’ll always be in style. What I specifically love about this look is the casual dressy-ness of it. The sweater seems to be a bit more informal…

Flouncy Little Blouses 

This past season we were all totally obsessed, bonkers, over 70’s style. I mean, it was tasseled EVERYTHING, suede all over the place and for all those girls who love flared jeans; their moment to shine. I didn’t hate it. A key aspect of 70’s style that might’ve been overlooked just a touch was the…

How To Rock Your Girl Boss Blazer

Every fashion group preaches from the roof-tops that a major closet staple is a black blazer. The necessity is real, whether it’s a boyfriend fit or completely tailored to your body. Wearing a blazer in such a way that you don’t come across like a wannabe lawyer takes a little bit of crafting, but it’s…

Why You Should Try Unique Sweaters!

Apart from really elevating a look and giving your over style a total makeover, unique sweaters (ones with a special or different design or design element) are a timeless commodity. Some examples: You can dress any of these up or down depending on your situation and your wardrobe contents. I love pairing a unique sweater…

Your Boldest NYE Look Ever!

New Years Eve is a prime time to cover yourself in head to toe sparkles. Anything with sequins is a go. BUT for those of us who need to for-go sparkly dresses for a heavy night of YOLO (my best named this years soiree.. Who still says “yolo”!? She does..), then you’ll need a look…

Christmas Day Look!

I love oversized sweater dresses! They’re amazingly comfortable and have a certain city chic look about them. Make sure if you buy one that it’s not too long, or too short. Mid to low thigh is perfect. They’re versatile to wear, think sneakers, flats or even sandals, in warmer climates. This is a great piece…

Pajama Tops! 3 Reasons To Wear Them.

3 reasons to wear pajama style tops: They’re incredibly comfortable. Your street style repertoire will sky rocket. The semi disheveled look gives you a cool girl, “I can wear anything” vibe. Obviously what we’re striving for. I recently acquired the perfect pajama top, it doesn’t have buttons but the collar has a nice deep neck…

Wintery Warm Look!

Who loves being cold?? Absolutely no one. What I love about this look is that it has great details and lots of textures. The buttons on the pants compliment the eyelit holes in the sweater, while the tassels play off nicely on the bracelet. The suedes also compliment each other. Super cozy!  

Summer to Winter: White Pants 

I love wearing white/ivory/cream in the winter time. It feels fresh and whimsical. Taking classic summer pieces and working them into a winter wardrobe is easier than it seems. For these pants I wanted to go dark and cozy on top, layering a charcoal grey wool sweater with the scarf created a really nice textured…

Outfit Inspo! For The Occasion

I put a look together for an occasion where you may have to look a little classier but still a little relaxed. I’m totally obsessed with this cropped metallic knit tank, it gives the whole look a hollywood vibe when you pair it with these classic high waisted trousers and the vintage esq clutch. I…

Wear Large Earrings; BE The Queen of Sheba

I’ve had a love affair with all things earrings since I was a child, running around the house with my moms clip-ons and a scarf as a cape. Oversized earrings have made a tremendous comeback. Dolce and Gabbana have been paving the way for years, but the rest of the populace have finally caught up…

No Fear For the Fringe

Fringes, tassels, boho, 70’s glam, 90’s grunge, etc etc.. These have all been styles that’ve been around for a few years now. Our obsession with all things tassel reached fever pitch circa last year with women salivating over anything suede and fringed, but thankfully we’ve settled into a happy balance.

The Essential Wardrobe: Dresses & Jackets

You’ve made it so far! We’re finally on dresses and jackets, the essential ones every girl should have in her closet.
