Pin-up Darling Soiree Crochet Dress Top

Pin-up Darling Soiree Crochet Dress Top

Have you ever seen a lace pattern so lovely? Somewhere between the retro days of classic pin-up starlets and the present, you find this sheer party frock by Pin-up Darling. Founded in 2011, Pin-up Darling is an indie clothing brand inspired by the charming ’40s and ’50s style era, yet still has a wearable vibe that fits with today. I’m pretty much in love with everything they carry, but this dress really caught my eye as one of the most unique designs from the brand. Since it is a crochet style, you will need to wear a slip underneath, but that’s where you can get creative with it. Layer it with a black slip for an elegant look, or a nude slip for a flirty boho look; either way you can reinvent it with accessories fit for each occasion. So many soirees, so little time!

p.s. it seems to be the perfect tunic length, so depending on your height, you could wear this as either a dress or top!

Miranda Kerr’s “Joyce Dartry” Park Print Dress by Erdem

Miranda Kerr's "Joyce Dartry" Park Print Dress by Erdem

We don’t feature celeb looks on OMG all that often, but we just can’t get over how darling Miranda Kerr is in this prim sheath dress. This floral dress by Erdem is fit for both bridal showers on the veranda, brunches in the garden, and maybe even tea with the Queen. The intricate summery floral print has a mixture of black, blue, pink, and white that will beautifully compliment both silver and gold jewelry or accessories. While I don’t have the body of a VS Angel or runway model, I do think many body types can pull off fitted or tailored variations of the sheath dress, especially since the print is so busy. Obviously perfect for the day, but also fun for nigh whent edged up with bold accessories.

Tokyo Tort Square Cat Eye Sunglasses

Tokyo Tort Square Cat Eye Sunglasses

I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect cat eye shades, and these tortoiseshell beauts have got to be the pair for me. I was always a classic black sunglasses kind of girl; never opting for much bling or embellishments. But lately, I’ve just been loving rich textures and classic patterns that have come and gone out of style over the past decades, iconic styles such as argyle, houndstooth, paisley, chevron, and of course, tortoiseshell. These frames have a dramatic lift at the corners for just the effect I’m going for that will look great with hair worn down or up. I also like that the lenses are plenty tinted; I never go for anything semi-sheer for personal style preference but also since my pupils are extremely sensitive to light. At $98, I think these sunnies are a bargain and even a justifiable cost if they end up being a trend I never return to. You never know… I might change my mind again in another few years.

Charlotte Russe Crisscross Back Chevron Stripe Tank

Charlotte Russe Crisscross Back Chevron Stripe Tank

I picked up this chiffon tank a few weeks ago at the Charlotte Russe outlet store in Livermore, CA, and I’m obsessed. This is the perfect little top to wear under solid colored basic cardigans, blazers, or sweaters for a sharp geometric pattern pop. You can also rock the top solo, say belted with a bright red skinny belt to break up the pattern and give the silhouette a bit more shape. I’ve also really been loving this tank because it’s black and sheer in the back; totally lightweight and airy for those warm summer days. Perfect for day or night, worn dressy or causal!

Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes

Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes

Lashes are by far my favorite facial feature to enhance with makeup, and I’ve recently become curious about what I can use beyond plain old mascara. There are pricy growth serums and treatments, all kinds of false eyelashes, and primers you can use as well to compliment what you’ve already got before mascara goes on. These Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes by Younique essentially work similar to a traditional primer and mascara combo, except with hundreds of lash-enhancing fibers that kick it up a notch! You start by using your regular mascara; apply one coat and let it dry. Then move on to the first tube, the Transplanting Gel, in the Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes duo, which will help the fibers adhere to the lashes. And you guessed it; the next step is to immediately apply the product from the second tube, the Moodstruck Natural Fibers, while the gel is still wet, to take your lashes to the next level. Lastly, seal it all in with another layer of the Transplanting Gel to top off the look. The Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes give your natural lashes a 300% boost in volume and thickness, leaving you with more full, bushy, and sexy lashes. The best part? This high impact product is waterproof, yet still easy to wash off with warm water and your cleanser or makeup remover. No more tugging at your eyes, rubbing away lash glue and impossible-to-get-off waterproof mascara. If you wear waterproof mascara or falsies daily, you know how much of a pain and chore removal is.

I’ve featured Younique cosmetics in the past, and I wanted to remind you they’re an all-natural and mineral-based brand, that’s free of parabens, oils, synthetic fragrances, and yucky cheap fillers! Younique also operates through direct sales reps, like many cult favorite beauty brands, so if you’re interested in a new career in beauty please check out their opportunities page. I’ve heard great things!

Dolce Vita Helia Low Wedge Sandals

Dolce Vita Helia Low Wedge Sandals

I’ve been a little sandal crazy this month, and I just can’t get enough of these mini wedge sandals. They go with literally everything. They give you the gift of extra height without being hard to walk in. They make your legs look good. They are light, compact, and travel well. They’ve got the seasonal trendiness going for it with its gold hardware and chevron-V embellishments. Lastly, it has a rich snakeskin texture that looks as cool as carbon fiber from afar. These Dolce Vita Helia wedges have got to be the most chic mini wedge sandals I’ve seen this season so far.

Femini Shoes Pebbles Sandals

Femini Shoes Pebbles Sandals

My shoe closet is in need of a sandal refresh and there are just so many new styles I want to get. Luckily I discovered Femini Shoes’s great selection of affordable summery sandals in call kinds of colors, and I think I’m going to start with this classic black thong with a twist. I love this style of sandal because it’s minimal, but it keeps your feet strapped in well at the heel. The circle cutouts give it a fun twist which can easily be worn to the beach or poolside lounge. You won’t catch me on vacation without these, since there’s always a lot of walking and exploring to do, and I need a nice sandal that’s great for hitting the pavement but also looks great with everything. Available in four different colors, I think I want them all!
