Sunday Brunch Outfit of the Day: Purple Chiffon Dress

Over the weekend hubby and I planned a lovely daytime date for Sunday Brunch at the Four Season's Hotel in Westlake Village. We have been talking about trying their brunch buffet for years and finally made reservations. Obviously I wanted to dress up for the special occasion! I chose this lovely purple chiffon high-low dress with acid washed denim bustier top. However, I made an amateur accessory choice. Avid buffet goers know that tight belts, especially high-waisted belts are a no-no. Oops. All I could think of was how great this silver metal plate belt looked with my silver single-sole heels and matching bracelet but halfway through brunch I definitely was wishing that I had a large purse I could discretely stuff my belt into. 
-No Such Luck-

Besides my little belt mishap, I really enjoyed this Sunday Brunch outfit. It fit right in with the elegant atmosphere of the hotel and the beautiful California weather. I also highly recommend Four Season's Brunch! It is comparable in price, selection and quality to any of the best Las Vegas Brunch Buffets. I thoroughly enjoyed everything and was amazed by all the gourmet options. They even had a live jazz band and bottomless champagne.

Fashionably Late: Sexy Black Maxi Dress

I love getting all dolled up to go somewhere but I sometimes hate how long it takes me to get ready. It seems like there are days when I can pull myself together effortlessly and then there are days when I practically need an army to get me out of the house in time. Let's not even get on the topic of what my room looks like after all this madness! 

If I have time I like to choose my outfit the night before an event and leave it layed out. This takes so much stress out of the getting ready process the day of. If I haven't had time to pre-select an outfit I will spend my time in the shower thinking of all my options and will most times have it narrowed down to two good candidates by the time I get out. When all this fails I stick with the basics. A little black dress really is a woman's best friend and works well for so many occasions. This sexy black maxi dress is my latest obsession in the little black dress department.

The back of this sexy black maxi dress is my favorite. It features a deep open back cut-out, sexy criss-cross straps and a flirty chiffon bow that drapes beautifully. From the front, this black maxi dress is classic and simplistic but then you turn around and notice all the eyes in the room on you. I've always loved backless styles and now I feel comfortable wearing them after finding the holy grail of completely strapless bras. Target sells a "sticky bra" that literally just sticks in place, offering smooth coverage and moderate lift and support without any pesky straps. This awesome bra will set you back about twenty-five dollars but you can re-use it several times and even hand wash it. You can find this bra and purchase here.

Femme Fatale Outfit

Just like a femme fatale in a romance novel or an ancient myth, this outfit sucked me in at first sight and left me powerless against its charm. I was enticed by the beauty and mystery evoked through this sleek and sexy combination of fashion must-haves. I love all these items separately but together, together they are something else.

Naturally, my black quilted jacket is named The Femme Fatale Jacket, available from I'm Haute. It is the perfect blend of timeless class and modern attitude. It has a luxurious Chanel vibe with a more attainable and seductive price tag. I am beyond obsessed with this fabulous little jacket. It is just what my fall wardrobe has been looking for!

While this black quilted jacket would look awesome with just about anything it looks particularly fabulous with my taupe A-line dress. I love A-line anything these days, so feminine and figure flattering. The dress and jacket compliment each other well, probably because both styles are so classic and chic. Keeping with the chic and charming feel,I finished my femme fatale outfit off with a classic black quilted bag and silver single-sole heels. Talk about trouble!

Blue Chiffon Maxi Dress OOTD

Maxi dresses are my favorite. I could happily wear a maxi dress every single day, they are comfy and chic- two characteristics I hold dear in my personal everyday style. This blue chiffon maxi dress is absolutely drool worthy. The black faux leather trim makes this the perfect summer to fall dress and adds a touch of attitude. I  chose matching faux leather accessories to emphasize the sexy trim of the dress. My favorite detail is obviously the intricate open back, great with up-do's or side swept locks. Everything I'm wearing is available from I'm Haute.com.

Cute Fall Outfit: Bow Sweater

My favorite outfits for Fall and Winter are warm and comfortable. Sure I put a high priority on looking fashionable but for everyday outfits warmth and comfort come first. I feel like this fall outfit is the best of all those qualities. My bow sweater is super stretchy, making it comfortable and the sequin bow detail is totally adorable. My black pants are stretchy as well. You could wear your favorite skinny jeans or even most leggings with this bow sweater, just be sure the leggings are not too thin. See through or super clingy leggings should never be worn as pants. Those types of leggings should be worn the same way you would wear nylons.

My accessories are minimal but fabulous! My black circle sunglasses have been my favorite all summer long and I still can't put them down. I'm also rather obsessed with single-soled heels at the moment. I just think they are so chic. These silver ones are the most comfortable single-soled heels I've ever owned. I find myself wanting to wear them everyday and wishing that I had them in ever color! I feel like this has turned into a "Confessions of a Shoe Addict" meeting or something, lol.
