Designer Business Suits for Women

When it comes to stylish work outfits, business suits for women can no longer be left out in any way. Although it is said that business suits should be sober in color and style, fashion trends today say otherwise.

For women in particular, business suits have become anything but ‘sober in style and color’. They have not only become more and more colorful, they are also now more stylish than ever before.

From dress suits to pant suits to skirt suits, and from matching to unmatched suit/jacket and bottoms, business suits today have shaken off many restrictions and shown that the possibilities are endless. They are even seen on the runway in many different versions; sometimes with an unexpected twist.

This evolution happens to be a welcomed one for the trend-setting working woman. And rightfully so. There really is no reason for women’s business suits to be limited in color and/or style. Colors and style shouldn’t detract from the business at hand. All it should say is “That’s a stylish business woman!” 🙂

Now, for the women who would like to take their work outfits a step further and indulge in business suits by designer brands, this one is for you! These are 10 of the most fashionable and flattering women’s designer suits to make you stand out from the crowd. And plus size options (up to size 16) have not been left out!

Personalized Mother’s Day Gift Ideas – Buy Online.

Mother’s day is fast and furiously approaching! And I have some great personalized mother’s day gift ideas to share that I’m sure you and mom would be very happy with!

I know there are just as many moms and their families who look forward to mother’s day as there are those who just see it as another day. And while mothers’ who are into it are sitting back relaxed and looking forward to what they might be getting, or getting to do on that day, their significant others, friends, and/or kids might be racking their brains about the gift.

A lot of thought usually goes into coming up with ideas of what to give or do differently for mom each year. Well, unless you’re like my then 4 year old who happily gave me a glue-stick for mother’s day. I can’t say how much thought went into that, but I guess the thought still counts 🙂

Anyhow, a good thing to note is that when you’re not sure what to gift anyone at all, personalized gifts might just be a good consideration. It just tells the receiver you went a step further with the gift and engraved it especially for them.

So if you’re not sure what to give mom, or if you live miles away and won’t be able to be with her for mother’s day, then here are some personalized mother’s day gifts that you can shop for from the convenience of the great world wide web.


You can’t go wrong with thoughtful personalized gifts.


  • Jewelry

Very many women love their jewelry; and that includes mom. Stella & Dot has a great selection of engravable jewelry that you could choose from for. Items include charms, rings, ID tags, lockets, bangles, bracelets, and necklaces. There are also multiple options for personalizing them with mom’s initials, name, or whatever you choose.

Their Signature Delicate Necklace, Signature Delicate Ring, and their Signature Wishing Bracelet can be made a set or purchased separately.

  • Bags

Amazon carries this Zippered Clutch that comes in many patterns and colors; more colors than are shown here. Also, you can’t tell from the picture, but they are large enough to hold all of mom’s essential and then some. At almost 12 inches long, it can also hold a Kindle or smaller tablets as well. And of course you have the option to brand it with mom’s initials or her favorite letters.
Zippered Clutch
Other options are from MarleyLily, and include a ring handle vegan leather Tote Purse that doubles as a cross-body bag, and a monogrammed Wicker Bag. Both styles are definitely unique in their own way, which I think makes them great gifts.

MarleyLily Bags


  • Clothing

I have not seen many options for personalized clothing when it comes to styles. There are mainly tanks and t-shirts; which is perfectly fine, since tanks and tees are still appealing to most women. And you could always add a touch of humor to your customization; as long as mom would find it funny too lol.

Some clothing options are a Racer-back Tank Top, Pajama Shorts Set, and of course a top for the Fur-Baby Moms too. Personalized Clothes


  • Watches

If mom is a watch lover or you just think she’s due for a replacement watch, then Fossil has lots of options you could personalize. You can engrave a few words on the back that would put a smile on mom’s face. Design one for her here.

Personalized Fossil Watch

Personalization Mall also has a watch you could customize for mom. It is called Picture in Time, which is very befitting, because you have the option to upload a picture which would then be reproduced on the face of the watch. Pretty cool! Add a photo of all the grand-kids and send this watch to Grandma. We all know she loves seeing her grand-babies’ faces!

Picture In Time


  • Shoes

Us women love our shoes too! And Vans is one of many brands with great personalization options. Their custom-made section allows you to add your own photos and/or up to four alphanumeric characters. In the photo here, I added the header picture from my site and my site’s initials as an example.

There are many styles to choose from, and a plethora of colors and patterns to customize with. Even the shoelaces can have mom’s favorite color or pattern. Also, every part of the shoe can has a different color or it can be all white; it’s all up to you. Customization is also available for men and kids’ shoes. That could be great for maybe father’s day or a kid’s birthday or graduation. Hint, hint!

Vans definitely has more colors and styles that would make them appeal to all ages and fashion preferences; but you may also want to check out the options Converse and Adidas have. You know mom’s style best!

 

Custom Vans

For dressier foot wear, Shoes Of Prey has it all. However, their personalization is not about putting mom’s initials on her shoes. What they do is let you either create a pair or customize one of the many styles they already have. I think that is amazing; and fun too!

You can actually create or customize mom’s very own heels, flats, sandals, boots, or sneakers! Pick not just the style and colors; also pick the heel type and height, material(s), and even the lining type and sole color. There’s absolutely no way mom won’t love that!

Here’s a view of their customization area: Custom Shoes of Prey


And that’s it!

There are clearly many options of where to shop for personalized gifts online; and there are many inexpensive choices too. You just click, ship, and it will be perfectly on time for mom’s special day!

Also, keep in mind that any of these items can be combined with others to make the perfect mother’s day gift basket, box, or bag.

This isn’t an exhaustive list, so I’m sure there are other places and more items. What online stores do you get items personalized? We could all learn something new and valuable from your input 🙂

 

 

Cute Maternity Outfits

Cute maternity outfits, I think, are things every pregnant woman wants to have. Dare I say, needs to have? Yes, there are days when we couldn’t care less how we looked because of one (or two) of the many ‘growing pregnancy pains’. But, outside of that, we still want to look fairly cute at least. The best part is that maternity clothes have evolved over the years, and have become more and more fashionable. No more plain, over-sized, and style-less clothes. We can be very pregnant and still very fashionable. The challenge may just be in finding the right style for you.                                 

            “I’m pregnant and would love to look frumpy “.                                                          – said no pregnant mama ever!

I actually remember wearing my pants unbuttoned and half unzipped, while holding it up with a belt! I also wore long tank tops under many of my tops, to cover up for any shortness of my tops as a result of my growing tummy. Then the time came where I wore my husband’s t-shirts, his sandals (I had swollen feet during my first pregnancy), and even his joggers. All because I was looking for ways to be comfortable without having to actually get myself proper maternity clothes. Why? I still don’t know :/

Thankfully, from jumpsuits to dresses, tank tops to jackets, and from leggings to dress pants, maternity clothes are now readily available in almost any style you could think of and for every fashion preference. That is, whenever you’re ready to make the switch lol.


Outfit 1: From Work to Play.

Cute Maternity Outfits - Work to Play


Casual maternity clothing or outfits may be the easiest to put together. Comfortable stretchy leggings, flowy tunic top, embellished sandals,  jewelry or no jewelry, bag or no bag, and you’re still all set. Rompers and jumpsuits can also be trendy maternity clothes. Jumpsuits in particular can be casual wear, work wear, or for going out. It all depends on the style of the jumpsuit and what you wear it with. However, when you’re pregnant and taking frequent bathroom breaks, neither one may be the most convenient. But before the increased bathroom visits kick in, they could still be a stylish consideration.

Outfit 2: Casual Maternity.

Cute Maternity Outfit - Casual


Maternity clothes for work may prove to be the most challenging, especially if your workplace has set dress codes. I have worked in a Hospital and wore only scrubs to work. And I have worked in an organization where Casual-Friday was a big deal. I have also worked with another company where Casual-Fridays were non-existent, and we always had to be professionally dressed every day of the week. The differences in what is required in each work place present their own challenges when it comes to finding appropriate maternity clothes and shoes too.

Outfit 3: Maternity Work Wear.

Cute Maternity Outfit - Work


When it comes to maternity clothes for events, like weddings, military balls, or even events like a professional maternity photograph session, the outfits would usually involve a dress. Other frequent options are pant suits, evening suits, ball gowns, or evening dresses.

Overall, some staples I would suggest having would be open front cardigans/dusters and blazers, as they would come in handy for the various stages of pregnancy.  Another advantage is that they can easily go from work to play. You will find some plus-size duster options here. Midi-dresses are also very versatile and would be good staples. They can be layered up for colder months and they can also be casual or work wear. You also can’t go wrong with tank tops, tunics and leggings.


No matter the occasion, comfort is key, especially around the tummy. It is important that our maternity clothes be not just cute, but also practical. So keep your staple items close, and add items here and there till you have your favorite comfortable, complete, and cute maternity outfits! Leave a comment and let me know what you think.

Spring Fashion Trends for Women

So far the runways have seen a couple of trends this year. Some spring fashion trends for women range from more than one handbag to bold colors to everything fringe. The amount of creativity that goes into the vast number of the runway styles cannot be denied. However, as attention-grabbing and intriguing as all the fashion on the runway usually is, I honestly often find myself looking at some of them thinking, “Where on earth would I wear that to?!” That is if I can afford it at all lol.

But over the years, I’ve learned to more or less summarize the runway trends, pick what I find appealing, and find those trends in items I am able to and would love to wear. I look at what the models are wearing, and just like we would for hard-to-do workout routines, I come up with a ‘modified version’ of the style in my head. I look for ways to make it wearable for me.

If an item is extremely see-through, I would picture it with a cami, tank top, or tank dress. If it’s too short, I’d consider finding a similar item that is longer or consider making it work with a pair of leggings. Too much cleavage? There’s a fix for that too. If the style or colors are too out there for my taste, then I’d seek out a more appealing alternative. And if it’s a dress, I may choose to get a similar style as a blouse, or a similar but more affordable dress.

There are many ways to make runway styles our own, or translate the trends into everyday looks. That is if we find them appealing. So next time you’re shopping for or putting together an outfit, you could look out for these latest fashion trends that have been inspired by the runway this year.

When it comes to current fashion trends for women, keeping up could seem like a chore; for me at least. But I find that no matter what one’s style is, we can always still find some inspiration from current fashion trends. Add your own flair to it and you could very well be blazing the trail for yet another fashion trend!

Do you keep up with fashion trends? Why or why not? If you do, what are your favorites? Which ones, if any, are you now inspired to modify to suit your preference? Do share!

Matching Bags and Shoes

TO MATCH OR NOT TO MATCH?

Wearing matching bags and shoes used to be a major trend at one time. After that came the ‘coordinate as you like’ trend where we matched our bags to our clothes, or we added a pop of color to our outfit through our bags or shoes, or where we matched nothing at all.

However, has anyone else noticed that some ladies still like matching their bags and their shoes? I have. And I think if you want to, you definitely can and should! It’s all about making an individual fashion statement and staying true to your fashion tastes and interests.


IT’S ALL YOU!

Many high profile fashion editors and stylists actually have varying views on whether to match or not match our shoes with our bags. Some say ‘match’, some say ‘don’t do it!’, while others say ‘match but don’t match fully’. They all feel differently about it, which clearly shows that it’s up to our individual tastes and fashion senses. And that is what being truly fashionable is – being individual. It doesn’t have to be a major trend at the moment for you to wear it. It just has to be a perfect representation of you and your style!

So if you’ve ever been unsure about matching your bags and your shoes, or if you have ruled it out only because you feared you might look outdated, this is to let you know that you are one of many who bring pleasure to so many eyes with your bag and shoe matching preferences! So just go ahead and do it; not just for you but for all those eyes too!

MATCH AND COMPLETE.

When it comes to completing your outfit, you cannot go wrong with wearing matching bag and shoes. The key is to make sure your entire outfit is coordinated appropriately, as far as colors, prints and patterns are concerned. You want to make sure there’s no clashing going on, so you don’t hurt anyone’s eyes lol. With your outfit having the right color combinations and the right amount of contrast, your matching shoe-bag set would be an ‘icing on the cake’ fashion statement.

I actually matched my flats and my handbag today without planning to or thinking about it. All I wanted to do was wear shoes that matched my tan pants. But when I added my go-to handbag (which is black and tan), it looked like my black flats with tan soles matched my bag instead. I always get excited about outfits that just happen to come together unintentionally.

Have you ever matched your shoes and bags unintentionally too? Do you see it as an outdated trend or is it something you’re very much into? Share your thoughts please!

 

Women’s Plus Size Dusters – Where To Buy

You’ve most likely seen or met someone wearing a duster; and there is also a great possibility that you have one or two yourself. However, if you are one of those who have been wondering where to buy women’s dusters, and particularly where to buy women’s plus size dusters, then this is for you.

Dusters are easy to wear clothing for layering that can be styled in multiple ways. There are duster hoodies, duster vests, duster coats, duster cardigans, duster kimonos, and probably more. You can get them in a variety of prints, patterns, or in solid colors; and with all kinds of designs or accents. They are also available in many fabric types and with different levels of thickness. This makes them perfect to wear from spring to fall. You could even make it work for winter, if you’re also in good ol’ Texas where we sometimes get summer-like temperatures in the middle of winter.

Dusters are so versatile that you can wear them to work, wear them to run errands or lounge at home, dress them up for going out, or wear them as a swimsuit cover-up at the beach.

These are a few dusters and where you would find them in extended sizes as well as in a variety of patterns and colors. Layer them your way or style as pictured and you have your complete spring duster outfit!

All White Outfit Ideas

All white outfits are definitely a trend now; and I don’t see it going away anytime soon.  That’s partly because all-white is sort of very clean and elegant looking, especially in a hall full of people; and also because people like the idea of having a dress code for their parties. Seeing shows or events where everyone is wearing just white would often make me think up my own all white outfit ideas.

So it’s spring-break and I was thinking about what a good dress code for a spring-break party or get-together would be. I ruled out floral (which would be perfect considering it’s spring, duh!), since I know many guys who would have a problem with that lol. I also ruled out all-white for no reason at all. But after thinking up all kinds of possible ideas and striking them out for one reason or the other, I finally circled back to all-white! Go figure! It actually made sense and seemed like an easy conclusion; plus I was certain it would be fairly easy for everyone to find a suitable outfit.

However, I don’t have a complete all-white outfit myself. So I got online and started looking for what I could find. And this is what got me thinking about possible all-white outfits and finally gave me the idea to do this post.

And now to the outfits…


Outfit No. 1:
All White Outfit 1

From the office to girls night out or date night, this Belted Midi Shirt Dress ($39) fulfills all the necessary criteria for each occasion. It comes with the belt pictured and sizes start from XS and go up to a 3X.

Complete The Look with a Rafia Detail Heel which are on sale right now for $32.99, Beaded Tassel Earrings ($16), and a hinged Pearl Detail Cuff ($19). The heels are shown in camel, but are also available in black. Sizes are from 6 to 10. Earrings are available in black, blue and red.


Outfit No. 2:
All White Outfit 2

This gorgeous and all-body-type flattering One Shoulder Jumpsuit is priced at $49 and sizes are from 2 to 24.

Complete The Look with these High Heel Strappy Sandal ($24.99) available in sizes 6 to 10, Hoop Detail Earrings ($16), Bangle Set ($22), and a clutch or wristlet of your choice. The heels are pictured in gold, but are also available in black, nude, and silver.


Outfit No. 3
All White Outfit 3

Last all white outfit includes this Zip Front Dress which is priced at $39.90 with sizes from S to L. The frills on both the hems of the sleeve and the dress give the dress unique accents for a fun girly look. I also like how the off-shoulder design makes me think of switching up the look by wearing a long flowy sleeveless duster!

Complete The Look with the Let’s Be Clear Crossbody Bag ($27.90) which has a removable zipped inner pouch, Tassel Trim Block Heels ($27.90) and the Caged Pineapple Drop Earrings ($5.90). The heels are also available in black and go from sizes 5.5 to 10. Earrings are available in fuchsia and yellow as well as the green pictured.


 20% OFF your purchase of $60 or more! Use code SPRINGBREAK!

These are just 3 of so many possibilities. And I hope they have helped you find some inspiration for your next all-white outfit.

What do you think about all-white dress codes? Would you rather go with a totally different color or even no dress code at all? Let me know what you think!

Casual dressing is something that most likely comes natural to every single person because we all have the tendency to just want to be relaxed and free. They are the clothes we run errands in, what we wear when we really feel like wearing nothing, and what we wear when we are lounging at home with family or friends or while enjoying our own company during me-time. They are those laid back, comfortable clothing items that we always default to when we don’t want to or don’t feel the need to give our clothes too much thought.

Casual fashion, however, sounds like a whole different ball game because ‘fashion’ has now been thrown in the mix; which means we need to give some thought to what we are about to wear. Then ‘casual spring fashion’ seems like it only complicates things further, because now we are supposedly factoring in the weather. But is it really complicated? Actually it isn’t!

Shorts and a t-shirt, tank top and a pair of jeans, tunic and leggings, midi or maxi dresses, and jackets or shrugs, are all casual clothing items you can get creative with and just style them up for spring fashion. You are probably already in the Casual Spring Fashion Club and just didn’t know it! And if you’re not, you’re about to be signed up! 


The Looks:

When we think spring, some of the first things that comes to mind are flowers and bright colors. And that’s a good place to start when thinking up ideas for your spring fashion outfits. Add some patterns, prints, layers as needed, and of course accessories, and you are definitely in the club!

A Pocket Hoodie Dress is a stylish casual look all by itself. Wear it with a colored low top Casual Sneakers, boots, slip-ons, or knee-high Gladiator Sandals, and you are completely fashionably casual. I think knee-high gladiators are especially fashionable in the way they can spice up an outfit that may otherwise look too simple or plain. They are also very fun to wear as they come in various colors and styles and can easily be paired with rompers, shorts, skirts, or a dress.

 

If you would like to add a bag, consider this versatile Convertible Backpack which would not only be a great addition to this outfit, but to many others as well. With removable and adjustable straps, it can be worn as a backpack, shoulder bag, or cross-body bag. Remove the straps and it becomes a cute little top-handle bag when needed. Complete the outfit with your favorite pair of sunglasses and you’re runway ready for spring fashion week somewhere lol!

Other casual outfit ideas are:

  • A pair of jeans, an off shoulder blouse, a scarf and/or necklace, dainty earrings, ankle boots, and a wristlet.
  • This sleeveless Halter Neck Dress would go very well with the knee-high gladiator sandals or simple flats, plus a Crossbody or Shoulder Bag.
  • Casual Friday at work can also be made more stylish with a midi dress and a plain or even patterned Kimono. Prints and patterns can also be combined seamlessly.
  • Throw a cardigan, duster, or poncho on a maxi tank dress and adorn your feet with studded slides.
  • Check out some more casual, affordable, and stylish outfits.
