ANGELIC in WHITE!

Hello everyone, 

                                          
I couldn't have picked a better day because on this particular day the weather was glorious in Las Vegas. It was mostly cloudy, at times the sun peaking in and out through the heavy clouds. Also, there was refreshing sprinkle of rain drops that didn't last long, but ohhh so beautiful, bringing more allure to the desert scenery. For quite a long time, I envisioned creating an all white angelic look and so here it is. I'm really happy with the way it turned out. I was striving for an outfit that speaks a little bit of earthy elegance, magnetism, boho chic and of course, white wonderland. I think the mission is successfully complete. How about you, what do you think? It's funny because every new post of mine becomes my current favorite because after working on it for so long, making the vision in my head a reality, I think, "Okay this is my all time favorite post." But the reality is every post I have done so far is my baby, has a special place in my heart and I really can't pick one. Let me know, what's your favorite post of mine so far?  

I'm in love with the California lifestyle, that's why a store like PacSun is my paradise. Both my top and bottom are from there. If you haven't been, you've got to check it out. It's got some amazing goodies that you wouldn't want to leave without. Like me, when this LA Hearts crochet top in ivory caught my attention, that was it. ( I was again, say it with me, In PARADISE!) This delicate crochet detail is just stunning; it goes well with everything and you can wear it off-the-shoulder. As for these low rise skinny jeans, they're the softest ones I own by the brand Bullhead Denim Co. They're ultra stretchy, so you know I can do squads or any leg exercises whenever I want because if you knew me, you would know that I love staying active and working out. Plus, they're ripped at the knees which gives them that edge and jeans like these are selling like ice-cream these days because they're so in style right now. 

Being angelic in white also includes the shoes. They had to be white and obviously, to go together with the rest of the style pieces. I went with these Dexflex Comfort strap sandals. I love the little heel and the soft platform, which feels like your foot is bouncing on cushion every time you take a step. I find they are the best brand if you are looking for comfort and style both in one.


All of my jewelry - the rings, the earrings, the bracelets, even the cross-body bag and the flowery head wrap are from Charming Charlie. You really can't go wrong with these sweet accessories. Look at how gorgeous the gold jewels shine with this all white look. I had lots of fun mixing and matching until finally feeling satisfied with my golden choices. Everything is in sync, all the pieces are modern and versatile. Can you tell jewelry makes me extra happy? :) 
I wanna know what's your favorite store to shop for accessories, let me know in the comments? 

     
 



Before I go, I'm going to leave you with another similar post to this one that you can check out if you would like. It's called DESERT GODDESS and I'm sure you'll enjoy it. In it, I transformed into a bohemian goddess with lots of jewels. You've got to see it for yourself and don't forget to let me know if you liked it!    
 Bye, beautiful angels!

KIMONO FLARE!

Hello everyone, 




How's everyone doing today? 
I'm here bursting of excitement like fireworks in the deep sky because I get to talk to you about fashion and to share with you this week's style outfit. As always, I had lots of fun putting all the pieces together and seeing it all come together makes me so happy and extremely grateful for doing what I love, not trying to please others or do something that will make me feel miserable or uninspired. I encourage you all to find that one thing that makes you feel like you have entered into heaven. Develop, learn and have faith; it will all work out in the end. 


Now onto my look! 
I added some flare with this floral print dolman kimono from Forever 21. I personally love its flower and paisley print, which adds some fun to this rather nude look, if you know what I mean. Another plus we can't overlook is that the kimono is slightly oversized, which makes it feel effortless and so comfortable hugging the upper body. You can throw it on top of anything and it'll all look good. For example, I paired my kimono with a crop top, one that's tight around the body. You don't want something loose because then the kimono won't compliment your top and in a scenario like that it's best to leave out the kimono. 

Another of my favorites is these creme high-waist shorts by Monteau. I'm in love with the petal-like scalloped hem, which gives my legs this delicate, elongating look and who doesn't want that? (My legs have never looked better :)) 
Adding a tiny belt to the mix makes the outfit from neat to extra sweet. 

Do you recognize something familiar? Well, these Steve Madden wedges have also been featured in another blog post of mine. Here you can see a completely different look that I styled with these same shoes: Click Here I love my Maddens, they're my most worn wedges ever. I so want them in all colors!  





As you can see for jewelry, I went with the wooden theme adding lots of wooden bracelets, two necklaces and geometric earrings. They go perfectly with my tan and in unison with the whole outfit. There is something about accessories like these that draws me in because they look effortless and so cute, just great for achieving that festival boho chic style any day of the week. 

My fashion flare is complete. Now it's time to create yours. Send me photos if you get inspired to recreate this look. I will be on the look out for your tweets. You can write me @RAFashionDi on twitter. (Don't be shy!) 
As always, I'll talk to you very soon. Prepare for next weeks post because it's going to be a white wonderland that you wouldn't won't to miss. See ya!

SUMMERS in PORTOFINO!

Hello everyone,


Okay, so from the title of this blog post you might be thinking that I went to Portofino, Italy, which I'm sure would have been an amazing adventure, but that's not the case. I'm just here in my boring room at home typing this blog, imagining being in Italy right now. If you're at home as well and wishing to be somewhere else let's dream together of spending July summers in Portofino. ( this way we might magically transport there and have an unforgettable time) How cool would that be!    

Summers in Portofino was evoked from this horses print convertible sleeve Portofino shirt that I'm wearing. Today, I'm going to show you how you can style it during the summer into a cute and more casual look for days when you would like to look put together without wearing something uncomfortable or over the top. 
I got it at EXPRESS, which offers full selection of Portofino shirts both, online and in store, that you can choose from. I fell in love with this white horses pattern one because first, I love horses and second, it's something that is completely different than anything else I own, so I immediately grabbed it. What I really love is that it's made of sheer crepe material that is very lightweight and wonderful for wearing even in the hot summer days. 
Since I'm going for that casual look, I left the shirt unbuttoned and underneath I paired it with this nude cami top also from EXPRESS. This way you can take the shirt off whenever you want and leaving it open, so the air keeps flowing ( you wouldn't want to sweat it out.) 



For a bit of summer color, I knew I had to add these coral shorts that are by the brand Mossimo from Target. I mean what's an outfit without some color in the summer? Plain and boring! Especially in the spring/summer, I'm all about vibrant colored heels, bags, threads and jewelry. They make my summers extra blissful and meaningful. What is the one color you love rocking this season? For me, right now it's neon fuchsia and anything coral. 

Another key element that brings this casual, but cute vibe to this outfit is the flip-flops. I've put my heels away and went with these black ones by the same brand as the shorts. They perfectly match the Portofino shirt and what I really love is the metallic rhinestones that go along the straps. Also, these sandals are rubber and made to fit the soles of the feet effectively, so basically you can do anything that your heart desires in them. 

     
Let's talk about my favorite part of any outfit: The JEWELRY! All the pieces I have on are simple, but all together they bring a golden spark to the whole look. 
On my ears, I've got the tiniest golden studs. They're pretty, casual and most of all a very special gift. 
To compliment them, I added my favorite giraffe necklace which is so adorable and colorful. I knew that this outfit needed a long necklace, so the giraffe came to the rescue right away. I remember when I saw it at the store, I wanted it so much that the next day I went back to purchase it and now I can't get enough of it. I wear it constantly. 
A little bangle goes a long way, so this rhinestone fireball added some fun and extra dazzle to my outfit. 
And the final piece, which you might have already seen in another of my posts is the starfish ring. If you haven't, Click Here to see how else I styled it. It's one that I keep adding because it reminds me of the beach; it's so beautiful and summers without starfish feel incomplete. 
 




Sadly, it has come to the end of our Summers in Portofino, but you know we'll meet again here next week. Until then keep dreaming of Portofino, Italy and you'll see, sooner or later, it will happen. As always, I hope you're having a beautiful summer. Chao!

CRAZY for KLEIN!

Hello everyone,


Yep, like the title says, I'm crazy for Klein!
 A prestigious brand that brings elegance, sophistication and charisma to women and men across the world. He's the man which is why I couldn't pass the opportunity to purchase a dress of his the minute I saw it. I'm obsessed with this piped floral shift dress. It's life! Just look at those eye-popping hues of pink, blue, black and green. What else could you ask for? This dress is so me that I feel as if it was designed especially for me. ( I really wish so, so let's pretend that it was) On top of everything, I really like the black piping on the front and back of the dress. It makes it even more unique and beautiful. I can see myself wearing it at a cocktail party or why not even when I'm out shopping because you know, that's my number one hobby :) 

 Adding extra grace to this look, I paired the shift dress with these cream peep-toe heels from dressbarn. What really sold me about these heels is the sheer lace detail. Once I saw them I knew these are my Cinderella shoes. The ones that will get me feeling beautiful and ready for the ball or in my case for a stroll in the summer sunshine. Either way, I'm satisfied and overjoyed to have them in my life. 

     

The fun continues with these accessory pieces that I added to help accentuate this whole look. First, for a dash of dazzle, I went with this gorgeous classic gold and navy watch. Not only is it stylish, but I've got the time right on my wrist which is perfect, so I don't have to take out my cellphone every time because you know that can be really annoying when you have to be somewhere on time. 
Moving on with the gold and summer theme, I've added this delicate starfish ring which could also be stacked with some of your other favorites, but here I let it stand alone. You know, there's nothing wrong in that as long as you know where you're going and believe in yourself. A little Monday motivation for you!  
So the opposite hand is not left out, I had to add some of these mixed textured bangles. This way everything looks balanced and compliments each other.
 And the final touch is some earrings. These dangling teardrop ones are just adorable and my luck on sale at dressbarn. I love them lots!!!   



Now that I've shared my love for Klein, I seriously can take a breather. My heart has been beating so hard for the excitement in sharing this post with you that I really hope you enjoyed it. I had lots of fun and you know if you didn't get enough you can always go back to my older posts. Plus, I'll have a new post next week that you can expect to be mesmerizing. Bye, See you then........ Before I go, let me know in the comments if there is something you would like to see on this blog. I'm open to any suggestions.
