Golden Globes Fashun

The Golden Globes are this Sunday, who’s going to be watching? What about the amazing red carpet lewks?! I know some people don’t like watching the entire show, but I’m all about the red carpet looks when it comes to the awards season. I think a lot of people are, and they’re also a great way for designers to spread key trends for the upcoming season. 

Do you remember any of last year’s lewks? Almost everyone was wearing black for the #MeToo movement. I personally love to wear black, it’s very flattering and makes you stand out more. Here’s a refresher and some of my favorites from last years looks:

 

Nicole Kidman in Givenchy Couture with Fred Leighton jewelry

So classy, and chic! I adore Nicole!

Gal Gadot in Tom Ford and Tiffany & Co. jewelry

This looks more of a party outfit, rather than an awards show look. But, it works so well on Gal!

Looking gorg as always! Loving the shoulder detail!

Diane’s look was definitely my top favorite! Everything from the dress, the details, her hair, looked so stunning and on point. The beaded cape, gave me this goth bride vibe, and it looked amazing on her! Love, love, love!!

Claire Foy in Stella McCartney and Christian Louboutin shoes

My favorite Queen, she looked beautiful in a sexy and simple suit. The bold red lip was a perfect touch!

Shirt dresses forever!

The weather has been pretty cool early mornings and at nights here in LA. We’re still getting mid 80 degrees here during the day though! That hasn’t stopped me from wearing my favorite shirt dresses out. Shirt dresses are so comfortable and easy to throw on and go! They’re the summer rompers to my Fall/Winter wardrobe, haha. Anyone else agree?

I’m allllll about the chic and comfortable looks, especially for everyday wear or a simple outing. The great part about shirt dresses are that you can dress them up or down. You can be very casual with flip-flops or sandals, or for a party/date night throw on a sexy pair of booties! My favorite is also playing around with a fun hat, belt, and some jewelry to create a full look. Hope you guys enjoyed these links, let me know if you ended up purchasing any! I’d love to know which one you got, and how the fit is for you! Happy weekend loves!

Hats, caps and more hats!

Hats, caps and more hats!

It’s finally cooler here in LA, and temperatures have dropped to digits that we haven’t had in a LONG time! Although, compared to the east coast this weather isn’t cold, but it’s a blessing from the triple digits we had! While I’m a huge lover of the sun and summer heat, I will confess that it is nice to be able to open the window and get a refreshing breeze. I also forgot what it was like to be able to layer, rather than trying to find the lightest t-shirt or dress to throw on and not melt away in.

One of my newest obsessions this year and season, is hats! While I do love a lot of different styles, my main one at the moment is the Cabby hat!! I’ve mainly heard them being called Cabby hats growing up, but they go by so many names all over the world! So depending on where you come from/are used to, you may call them Baker boy caps, Flat caps, Fisherman hats, Newsboy hats, Poor Boy hats, and more. You can literally google it and see how many different names there are for this gorgeous and versatile cap.

I love following trends and always getting a good find/deal on any piece I own. I’m a sucker for new styles, whether it has embellishments, embroidery, or some cool effect to it. I’m sure there are more out there like me, right? Check out some of my favorites below! I’ve linked four of my favorite brands caps and they’re all so cute and on trend!

  1. FOREVER 21

cabby1

These Forever 21 options are all such cute cabby’s!! I personally love all the red and maroons were seeing this season. Don’t you?! These are all so affordable and on trend, they’ll dress up any outfit you wear. Most are even under $20 which is fabulous compared to some that I’ve seen higher up in the $100-$250 range, which for me is a bit much for a hat. Each hat is made of different materials and some are a combination of polyester, wool, nylon, cotton, etc. Find these adorable cabby’s here!

       2. URBAN OUTFITTERS

cabby3

Urban Outfitters has some adorable caps, which on their site they call Fisherman caps! Their caps are a bit pricier than the Forever 21 options, but they are just as fabulous and hit the trend spot on! I mean look at that mustard!! The mustard cap (bottom left) goes for $42.00 and also comes in a cool grey (top right) Most of these styles are of wool and polyester combinations, and you can spot clean them! Haaay. Check them out here!

       3. ASOS

cabby4

Asos is one of my top favorite shopping sites. I mean who doesn’t love a late night of scrolling through hundreds of amazing pieces and drooling over everything your heart desires. Maybe there’s a glass of wine included in this activity as well, maybe. Scrolling through their styles, I did notice some were a bit pricier than most caps I’ve seen. But! They do have some options that are lower, starting around $19 and go up to about $72. I personally love anything red or that awesome olive green you see on the bottom left. They’re obviously so popular for Fall/Winter. Find these styles and more right here!

       4. MACY’S

cabby2

My final brand is, Macy’s! Macy’s has some amazing, detailed styles of these caps. They have great color options and styles for Fall and Winter. Some of the brands featured in my collage are Nine West, and August Hats. They range from different brands and prices, but some go for about $20-$30 which is great for staying on budget and still looking stylish without breaking the bank! What’s even better about their prices is that they currently have a sale going on with special savings on most styles AND you can even use the code ‘SAVEBIG’ for an extra 20% off! How great is that?! The sale ends 11/12/17 so get shopping! You can find these fab pieces here!

I hope you guys enjoyed some of my finds, and are drooling over them just as much as I am! I have been obsessing over these caps for a long time now and they’re very on trend this season. I remember even up until about a year ago they were very male driven in fashion, and in the British culture. But! Now they’re moving to women’s fashion in all shapes and sizes and I’m absolutely loooooooving it! Many are under $20 which is such a grea find for an awesome staple piece this season!  I wish I had all the money in the world and closet space to buy them all! Don’t you?! Let me know what you guys think below in the comments.
