Little Black Dress for that Special Occasion

Do you own a little black dress? The best for any party don't you think? I found the perfect one at ASOS online this season. It's not just any LBD. It's an open back peplum hem dress, complete with unique cutout details. I am in love with it! The fabric is just right, not too thin and is breatheable. It has a body conscious fit for sure. 
More and more I'm doing my shopping for special occasions online. How about you?

Dress: ASOS // Heels: c/o Shopbop-Sam Adelman//Sun Glasses: Diff Eyewear

This year I have tried to focus on minimizing my wardrobe. This was definitely a chore that I'm still working on. With fashion moving at such a rapid pace, style after style, coming and going, it can be hard not to want to dive into the next trend. Am I right? Well, some trends I pick up and others I admire from afar, or pull something from my closet that is just like it. With that said, shopping online has helped a bit because I'm not as tempted to buy when I haven't tried on an item. I just shop for exactly what I need at the time.

Style Tip
If you want that
 expensive perfect dress but you don't want to shell out the big bucks this season.  Go to Rent The Runway! You rent your dream designer dress for about 4-8 days and then return in store or by mail. What? Yes ladies, it's such an amazing thing. Big fan over here! You get 20% off your first order when you sign up for their mailing list. So good.
I recently had an event to go to and I did just that. I rented a dress for $30.00 that was actually worth about $300! I felt like a million bucks but my wallet wasn't empty :)) Also my closet didn't have a new thing to store in there until the next special occasion. My minimal goals are still a reality! 

I hope you do find that special thing you're looking for this season beauties. I wanted to let you know that I'm really excited about moving over to Wordpress soon. Actually the change is happening now, soon you can find my at Yay!

Much Love Always,

OTK Boots

Hi everyone, how are you all doing this fine December? I created a wintery Cali look for you this week. Since we are the Golden State it's mostly always sunny so we hardly get to wear wintery looks. It does get cold but it also warms up pretty good during the day. So my go to is skirt and boots and sweaters, layered with cami, and shirts. This works for me quite nicely because I get to peel the layers off as the day warms up. Finally brought out this fabulous pair of boots I got. Let me tell you, they are the most comfortable good looking flat OTK boots ever. I searched for a good pair and found them on Amazon for a great price!
Okay, I bought a more expensive pair last year and it was a fail because they had no adjustable string in the back like these do. That's a great feature because they are adjustable. They are fitted around the whole leg just right. I barely have to adjust the string in the back at all. They completely stay in place! that is the best thing about these because you won't look uncomfortable pulling your boots up all day. I love these to death, seriously impressed by this brand! They have been compared to Stuart Weitzman OTK boots which run for close to $800.  I have to say they are magnificent and worth the $100 I spent on them. 
Style Tips
*When shopping online always read reviews. Reviews help you get an idea of how the items you buy have worked for other customers. It is the best thing you can do. So far all the things that I've bought online have not disappointed me if I have read the reviews prior to making the purchase. 
* Another great thing to keep in mind when buying online is to read the size charts, know your true size, or measurements. For me that is the size that I feel most comfortable in. My weight fluctuates throughout the year and I fit a various number of sizes. Knowing your measurements does wonders, and will keep you from making unwanted returns due to the wrong fit.

Hope that helps if you're shopping for that special thing for yourself this Holiday season. Online shopping is becoming my favorite way to shop.
Wish  you all a great December babes!!!
With Love,

L.A. Chic

 During my time off these past few weeks I've gotten to create more content for you guys, so I'm hoping to blog more often then I have these past 6 months. Really it's been crazy with one change after the other with my schedule. I hardly got a chance to breath. Now things are calmer and I'm feeling a lot less anxious, and happier. Most of the content I've created has gone up on my Instagram. Please take a look because it's the place I've been posting the most and have been the most creative in. If you love style and want to get to know a bit more of Los Angeles, you will definitely get a glimpse of it there. Check me out on Insta @inspiremyfancy if you get a chance! 

Top: JCrew and here//Hat: H&M//Skort:Zara(similar)//Ankle Boots: Zara 
I shot this look at the same place I shot my last one. I'm at the Griffith Observatory, but I'm showing you a different side of the place. Hope you like the shots, and my outfit too :)) I created a look that I felt so comfortable in because I wore a skort. Do you own any? You know a skirt and short mix? I love them just as much as rompers because they're short, cute, and you don't have to worry about flashing anyone by mistake, haha! How do you like skorts? Fan or not?

Cheers Babes,

Wardrobe Essential: The Moto Jacket

Do we all agree that the moto jacket is a closet staple? This one I'm wearing came into my life recently after and endless search for the perfect one. It has been 2 years since I lost my favorite moto jacket to be exact. I finally found a replacement for it. This one is from Blank NYC Denim. It is perfect and everything I was looking for in a moto jacket. Its faux leather, soft, just enough zipper and button detail to make it look interesting, but not overwhelming. I loved it as soon as I saw it! Personally I think everyone should have a moto jacket in their wardrobe. It is such a versitile piece, can be thrown over any outfit giving it instant cool style. Wether a skirt, pants, or dress, throwing on a moto jacket elevates it making it a much more interesing look. Would you agree?

Jacket: Blank NYC Denim| Skirt: Shop Bop C/O- Free People (similar)| Backback-DSW(similar)| Top-Amazon

I loved wearing my jacket while I explored the city on this sunny breezy day. It was just the perfect piece. If you're wondering where I am here, it's the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles. This was a place I used to visit often with friends as a teen, but I hadn't been there in years. I had a day off work and thought it was just the perfect opportunity to go exploring. 
Also if you are a fan of Lala Land the movie, a few scenes were shot here. The dancing in the stars scene, the place they walk to at night after the first time the two characters meet, and lastly it's where they meet to say goodbye. Isn't that awesome? I loved exploring the Griffith Observatory like it was my first time there. A decade is long time, and it lets you see beautiful places you used to know seem like unexplored places. I definitely recommend you visit if you are ever in Los Angeles. Wear a moto jacket incase it gets windy! :)) 

Much Love,

November Style

Strolling through the week here after a not so good end of October. The beginning of November wasn't the greatest for me because I got really sick. My energy level suffered greatly although I tried my hardest to take good care. Sometimes your body has to let you know when you've got to hit pause, slow down, and refocus. I've been non-stop as I tend to do. Having to rest at home for a bit made me realize I had not been eating really well, rushing breakfast, lunch, and dinner. 
Now that my son graduated High School and is in College, my mommy schedule is taking some getting used to. I don't have to plan meals the way I used to when he depended more on me. He now goes out with his friends, doesn't need me for rides to and from. I get more time to myself, and less time with him. So I've been eating on the go more than ever. I am now taking the time to take better care of what I put into my body. I feel so much better when I eat more fruits and veggies! Don't you? Lesson relearned!!!
Anyways enough about me and more on this outfit. The top and jeans I'm wearing here had been sitting in my closet for a few months waiting. Now that the temps dropped I was able to put these two pieces together and I love the outcome! 

Top: Shein -Similar //Jeans: Gap //Booties: Zara // Hat: Nordstrom-Similar
Mixing up the summer ruffle embroidered trend with some Fall pieces, like the wool hat just feels right. The jeans I got for 60% off at Gap this summer, yay me! Happiness is when an outfit comes together and I myself love it. Styling outfits is so fun, wish I did it for a living. One can wish right?

The Sweater Dress

All for the sweater dress say Yassss! Whoever invented the sweater dress was a genious. :)) 
This dress is from Rosegal. I love the vibrant red stripes mixed with  red, black, and red & white stripes. The sweater dress is the comfiest thing to wear during the colder months of the year. I feel that it is simple enough yet makes a statement because it hugs your body just right. 

Dress: Rosegal // Booties: ZARA (similar) // Purse:Amazon (similar)

Style Tips
Wether you get a sweater dress with a pattern or not just make sure that the fabric is soft, not itchy. Also make sure that it's thick enough and roomy enough to keep you snuggly without feeling like you're suffocating in it!

Happy November Everyone!

City Metallics

It had been a while since I took a stroll through the city. I missed the feel of the busy energetic buzz of the people. This buzz that I speak of comes along with all the innovative art museums, cocktail lounges, restaurants, and creatives of all types! On our way to another L.A. attraction, my friend Crystal and I ended up here when she entered the wrong address on Google maps. We both agreed it was meant to be since we had the best time. This location is the Disney Concert Hall, a place that I have been wanting to shoot for so long. Finally made it here with my camera in hand. It was so worth the wait! :))
Top: Banana Republic // Skirt: Zara (similar)// Shoes: Gap // Sun Glasses: Diff (similar)

Hope you enjoyed this post, it's one that has been long coming in my mind. I bought this skirt last year and it finally made a debut here. I always pictured it with boots, but it's so hot here that I can't style it that way. I decided these leopard print slip-ons went perfect with the black top. Not too matchy matchy, and I love it because of that. It balances out the whole look perfectly! Leopard like plaid always makes a comback for Fall it seems. I think leopard is back with a vengeance, haha!! Don't you think?
