Fashion Friday

Style And A Martini

Ahhhh Friday! Basically the best day of the week and for many of us its a three day weekend. Lately, I've been thinking a lot about personal style as I am always trying to cultivate mine. So let's talk some quick tips to know your style.  

Find your inspiration  

For me, it's Olivia Palermo every time. Her style truly speaks to me. She's classic and fearless at the same time. Browsing on Pinterest is overflowing with inspiration! Now find go find your style spirit animal. 

Pick 5

Items that is. Five favorite pieces from your wardrobe that make you truly happy. For me, it's my feather wrap, floral palazzo pants, black Louboutin's, white cape, and my black scarf from DKs Style Hut. I could almost put them in one outfit, haha. 

Be You

Yes, it's great to stay on top of fashion and trends but when it comes down to it, trust your instincts. Wear what you like. It would be such a shame to wear something you didn't feel good in.

Side note. These martini glasses were an early birthday gift from my Aunt. You put them in the freezer and they keep your drink cold!

I hope everyone has an amazing Memorial Day weekend! Wear something sassy!

Know The Lingo

Something that I am always striving to do is learn more. So as I've said my Martini Moment is all about learning and sharing something that I have learned throughout the week. Like many, I love fashion and everything that comes with it. But sometimes I will catch myself reading Vogue or a cool fashion blog and I'm like what does that word mean or I've never thought of that.

For today, I give you three fashion terms that are commonly used but maybe you didn't know quite what it meant. I even did a little shopping for you.

-Boiled Wool

I've heard this term before and never really knew exactly what it meant. It is fabric that is processed to be more dense and compact. Like a wool hat.

 -Epaulet

I think I see a DIY in my near future. It's an ornate shoulder piece usually on a military jacket. Here is an example:

-Dirndl Skirt 

 [durn-dl] 

Yea, I had no idea. But it's a fancy term for a full skirt that fits tight at the waist.  

Here is a fabulous one from  Forever21

The best way to start a weekend is feeling enlightened and maybe even shopping!  

Have a martini and a wonderful weekend! xoxo

Make It Your Own

Last month my work had a huge summer event. Well I love a good party and had to find the perfect dress for it. It didn't take me long, I immediately fell in love with this Kate Spade dress. When I bought it I knew it would need something...

Clearly this dress needed a belt of some sort. The bow really added cute to the look. Also we added black motif's to the top. It's all in the details. Here MK and I are on the Joyce's Red Carpet (Contemporary Photography took photos for the event).
