A Timeless Classic: Leather

There is a lot to be said about leather.  This classic piece has been around for some time now.  From accessories to clothing… you can always count on quality from a leather product.  It’s an item that simply won’t let you down.

A woman can’t go wrong with sassy hosiery…. fishnets bring the right amount of sassy to any ensemble.  This timeless classic is elegant in every way.  The versatility of leather can be dressed up or down but remains a classic no matter your style.

Until the next blog… take a timeless piece and make it “Your Own”.

Mixing “Old School” with the “New School”

It’s totally cool to mix a little old school with the new school.  It can be a bit overwhelming to wear a complete vintage look if that’s really not your style.  A good place to start is by mixing vintage/thrift and modern pieces together.

Being thrifty with your style doesn’t mean the look has to be something out of the 60’s or 70’s.  You can find modern pieces from the thrift store at discount prices.  Cool, right? Especially if your style is all about being on a budget.

Now, if vintage is your thing, girl, step on out there and do YOU.  Ya’ll already know I’m a vintage lover and proud of it.  It gives you the chance to explore style and show off your personality.

No matter how you like to show of your thrifty skills make sure the look represents YOU.  Style gives you the chance to bring out your personality and introduce yourself to others without saying a word.

Don’t be afraid to express yourself through clothing. There’s no right or wrong when it comes to conveying your style.  Rock it and don’t make any apologies for it.

Until the next blog… Express Your Style.  #SaseeChic

Leather “The Limited” Way

What is it about leather that brings out the inner diva in a woman? It screams “bad girl” but in a good way, you feel me? I don’t know about you but I automatically step into another mode… “that you can’t tell me nothing” mode.  LOL! I’m so serious…

DSC_7755

I’ve been wanting a pair of leather pants for a while now.  While browsing The Limited website… lo and behold I came across these leather culottes. Too Cute!  The website doesn’t do them justice.  I love the look and feel of the pants.  Yes, shopping straight size stores is indeed possible.

This peplum shirt, from the same brand, gives me the chance to accentuate my waist and bring the total look together.  Now, I decided to sit back and let these Ivanka Trump pumps be the star.  It’s even better since I got a great deal on them from Nordstrom Rack.

I was sassy in the city with this look.  It’s important to be confident with your style and comfortable in your skin.

SaseeChic Winter Wonderland

There’s a myth when it comes to wearing white.  What’s the saying?… no white until after Labor Day. Well, this is 2016, let’s embrace new things which include style and creating your own trend.  It’s something about winter white that is simply beautiful, classy, and chic.

DSC_7676I felt so gorgeous in this white and gold studded dress from Ashley Stewart.  It was paired with a white suede sweater cardigan from this brand as well.  The look was completed with black and gold booties from The Luxe Mode.  Everything flowed just right…

SaseeChic Winter Wonderland… in my mind at least.

DSC_7689

You can do so much with white.  It can be your blank canvas to play up with accessories or, keep it classic with a nice pump and hosiery.  Either way… you can’t go wrong.

DSC_7684No matter how you decide to wear your white make sure the style is uniquely yours.  Don’t be afraid to test the boundaries.  Your personality will thank you for it… trust me!

Until the next blog…. Remember to set the trend. #SaseeChic

Prints on Prints … not a Bad Thing

Let me reminisce down memory lane for a moment.  This print on print thing… well, back in the day we called it “tacky”.  It’s quite amusing how things have evolved over time.  All it takes is that one bold individual that doesn’t care what anyone thinks and guess what… we have a new fad.  Now, what’s truly awesome about fads is that you can tweak it to your own unique style.

Prints on Prints… where do I begin?…. let’s start with how it gives ladies the opportunity to play with fashion while bringing out their own style in the process. So, I decided to test the waters with this number shown above.  Check out those tights and shoes!!!!

tights1

The trick when it comes to mixing-n-matching prints is to stay in the same color scheme.  You don’t want anyone becoming cross-eyed when looking at you.  Girl, folks don’t know what to look at first. LOL! Staying in the same color format helps the prints/patterns to blend well.  It adds drama without taking the look over the top.

Take into consideration your style when it comes to prints.  Make it all about your personality… stay in your lane and don’t attempt to copy others.

Until the next blog…. Try something different!

A Life Full of Color on a Day in Gadsden

Life is full of opportunities but adding some color to the mix… well, the possibilities are endless for a stylish woman at least.  I totally enjoyed my full day of color while the hubby and I traveled to Gadsden, Alabama.  I love that town!

yellow3

Color is just fun! There’s no other way to say it.  It really gives me the chance to test my style level.  You know… it’s levels when it comes to being stylish. Oh yeah girl… we are going to test the boundaries within reason, of course.

yellow2

Let’s talk… Really talk… What brings about fear when it comes to being bold and different? For me it was simply making the first step towards coming into my unique style.  Change is good but, I must admit that it is difficult to transition into something different.

yellow4

Thinking outside the box is hard but obtainable. I’ve always told myself with anything take baby steps by gradually working into it.  It’s just an outfit… you can always take it off and start over.  Remember to allot time for this! Well, us divas have the right to be “stylishly” late, right?

Until the next blog…. Dare to be Different! #SaseeChic

How do you Style your Apparel Candy?

As stated in many other blog posts… a unique look is “your” style which ultimately determines “your”personality.  At the end of the day style is everything!  Not fashion… but style! We all know that fashion is a trend and it comes then it’s gone before you can blink your eye.  Well… that’s another blog post!

Let’s talk style that’s budget friendly.

Once a woman finds her unique style and it’s on sale… Chile, WINNING!

I’ve been asked by Apparel Candy to let you ladies know about their clothing.  They are a wholesale online apparel company based out of Los Angeles, California.

apparelcandy1

 

The one thing I love is that they offer accessories as well.  To be honest, it’s convenient to be able to do a “one stop” shop…in my opinion at least.  Who wants to shop several places to put together one look.  Yeah, if you don’t have to why do so??

apparelcandy2

The main thing I take into consideration when shopping for an outfit is can this look be dressy or casual.  We all know the saying, “two for the price of one”, this is something to think about when buying an outfit.  This shirt can be paired with a skirt or jeans and heels or boots.

apparelcandy3

This look screams casual.  I love to be comfortable but being sassy is a must.  I can see you ladies hanging out with girls for brunch or,  movie date night with bae.  Whatever you decide this look definitely says diva.

Until the next #blog…. Be Unique! #SaseeChic

Fur is a Girls Best Friend

It’s that time of season to pull out the fur.  I’m so thrilled!!

Fur can be fun and spontaneous but most of all it’s such a classic timeless piece.  Everyone needs some type of fur in their closet.  Mink and fox is at the top of my list.  Don’t judge me! A girl can dream you know…

fur coat1This faux fur definitely takes this simple but elegant outfit to the next level.

Furs are an ageless item yet it’s funky and edgy at the same time.  Pairing classic pieces with a modern look can definitely help bring out one’s unique side.  Keep in mind that personal style is in the eye of the beholder.

Until the next blog… Remember to think outside the box.

Boy Meets SaseeChic

How do one define women style?  We often think about the little black dress (LBD) which dates back to the 1920’s.  This trend was meant to be affordable but elegant at the same time.  As we see style now….its quite interesting how things have changed for the better.  In my opinion at least…

index

I received inspiration from a brand who recently release their boy meets girl collection for the fall.  I loved it! I decided that I wanted to create my own spin on the style.  This inspiration would be just perfect for a collaboration and I had just the right person in mind for the job.  Oh yeah… Style-Rehab is definitely up for the challenge.

Confidence is shown through style which ultimately translate through your personality.  Who says women can’t be sexy while rocking a tie and spenders?  The boy meets girl trend is something I can definitely get use to.
