Down Under

You know what bugs me? Finding outfits that I absolutely adore, only to discover 8,000 other women in my town own them [no offense babes]. But it’s bound to frustrate knowing you spent all that time searching for pieces that work specifically for you, for that perfect night//weekend//week out, only to see said neighbors Instagramming the same damn thing the same damn day. BUT, you know what fixes this problem [until this post goes public]? Shopping in Australia. Shit, you don’t own a private jet? Me either.

Enter solution.

SABO SKIRT is my 2016 pick of the year. I know, I know…it’s only February. But as it stands today, their styles are the most sexy, most chic, most boho-heaven, AFFORDABLE pieces out there right now. Yes, I did just said the “A” word. #HELLO. Their lookbook alone will have you dreaming you were on Bondi beach like now & you won’t even have to hide the bag when it shows up on your doorstep, because you didn’t break the bank.

PS: all my 2016 brides-to-be, these are some of the most perfect bachleorette, bridal shower, honeymoon pieces around. 

Don’t know where to start? Here are my favorite picks, that will be making serious appearances in my Spring//Summer wardrobe [click-through pics to shop]:

Maximum

As the Summer heat continues to assault my sweat glands, I find myself wishing I was naked pretty much everywhere I go. I mean really. The thought of a layer of clothing even touching my skin makes me cringe. Thus, I opt for maxi dresses as perma-summer-wear. They’re simple, comfortable, lightweight & make me feel naked enough to stay sane.  However, I have a weird love//hate relationship with them. The length has to be just right, the print can’t be too OC Housewife, but above all is my footwear-if the shoes ain’t right, it ain’t going down. & more frustrating than my own obsessive commitment to maxi-perfection is other babe’s struggle with it.

So, today I’ve created The 5 Commandments of Maxi’s. How to wear them, what footwear to rock & why prints matter, so we can all look polished & Summer-ready, no matter the occasion.

Let’s go.

Commandment #1: No flip flops allowed. Ever. Throwing on a pair of cheap flip flops only perpetuates the laziness factor. Unless you’re backpacking in Europe or your name is Kate Moss, just don’t do it. Instead, spruce up your look with a cute sandal or heel [if you dare] & complete the entire look.

Do’s & Don’ts:
vanessa hudgens maxi          KK flipflopsCommandment #2: Length matters. Looking comfy is great, looking frumpy is just sad. The length of your maxi dress can entirely change its intention. Too long says “I just bought this cuz I was in a rush & the mannequin looked cute in it.” Before you take that maxi home, see where it hits on your leg. Ideally the perfect fit should hit right at or just below your ankle, to accent your shoes & show just a little skin.

Do’s & Don’ts:                  
length matters          length matterCommandment #3: Print is everything. Even perfectly-fitted, beautiful-shoe-wearing maxi outfits can be hindered; without the right print & color the dress is rendered useless. Although the actual style of a maxi rarely changes, the prints are constantly being updated. Stay current & age appropriate & you’ll nail this look.

Do’s & Don’ts:

print matters        print matter
Commandment #4: Leather is the perfect addition. Almost always. Eventually the Summer sunshine will let up & you’ll likely be left shivering in the cold of the night. Thus, I team my maxi dresses with a leather jacket or blazer, but be wary, as fit & style are key to nailing this outfit addition. Tip: less is more.

Do’s & Don’ts:
leather matters        dont leatherCommandment #5: To shoe or not to shoe? I haven’t quite decided my thoughts on wearing full blown sneaker with a maxi dress. I see it happening everywhere & I don’t know if I love the casual-factor or absolutely hate it. However, I think it’s important that we at least attempt to style this look, so here goes: when wearing a shoe with a maxi, be sure you focus entirely on casual pieces. Don’t team lacy//chiffon//floral-print dresses with Chucks. Go all cotton, all solids or just don’t even. Tip: if you do take on this look, clean your sneaks first.

Do’s & Don’ts:

converse matter      dont converseSummer has some of the trickiest, but most rewarding styling options, you just have to take a few extra minutes to find what pieces work best for you. The ultimate goal to styling a wardrobe is to make the user feel like their best self.

If you feel as comfortable & free as you do dancing around your apartment//condo//house completely naked to MJ’s Greatest Hits, yet you’re really just rocking a full blown killer maxi outfit…then you’re doing it right.

Go be your maximum self, babes.

All or Nothing

Hi babes, long time no blog! It’s been a crazy few weeks, but here I am & soooooo ready to get some important fashion information your way.

The past few weeks the Summer heat has been a’kickin & I’ve been noticing the outfit creativity of fellow shoppers, clients, friends, passer-bys…basically everyone. I love watching what people put together & how & why, particularly when it’s hot as hell out & throwing 100 layers on is simply not an option. [Let us take a moment to remember what cold weather feels like for just a second…..*sigh*] BUT, I’ve noticed something criminal that I simply cannot watch anymore. Thus, I’m hoping today’s post will help even just one single woman understand the importance of these tips & commit to them religiously.

I call today’s lesson ‘The Entire Package’.

No not some sexy man on the street that you drool over or your latest Packed Party order [if you don’t already know, just freaking click the link, because Jordan is amazing]. The entire package is the reason we buy nice things; clothes, jewelry, shoes, handbags, hair products, nail polishes…whatever it is, we purchase these products to attain just the right look that suits us. However, what I have been finding is that we spend so much time on trying to attain that specific look, that we forget the little things like our hair, our makeup, or our jewelry. You know, like the most important part of an entire outfit. & frankly, I just can’t watch it happen anymore. [Enter: bitch voice.]

So today, I’ve broken down my top five Summer outfits, from head to toe, to help my clients & friends & followers better understand how to seal the deal & work an entire ensemble, not just an item or two. Because otherwise, why the hell are you even putting forth any effort? #sorrynotsorry

Let’s Go…

tourist shic

 

Look #1: feel like vacationing through the South of France this Summer? Or maybe you just want to try out a new look; this ensemble by Sincerely Jules is spot on. Perfectly unkempt locks [probably yesterday’s wash because she’s so busy sight-seeing], a bright pop of color to enhance her tan, white shorts to accent her amazing stems & a fun, printed shoe to add a point of interest to the fit. Throw on a cross-body bag & you’re ready to tour the entire city with ease. Minimal jewelry for a look like this; the point is to look understated. She’s appropriate for her environment & entirely put together.
big details simple hair

 

Look #2: have a sexy sunset date? Maybe just grabbing drinks with girlfriends? This look is perfect. Statement jewelry & sunnies to show that you plan to get a little fancy & a lot wild, a fitted, high-neck tank to dress it up, an on-trend pair of printed shorts that are appropriate from day to night, & an amazing oversized handbag. Topped off with understated, pulled back, straight locks, because big curls would be serious overkill on this one, & a pop of bright lip stain; you’ve got the entire room asking for your digits.
monochromatic pop

 

Look #3: wanna go monochromatic? All good. But do it right; find two to three colors max to successfully achieve this look. Babe above elevates the entire fit with her perfectly loose curls, but keeps it minimal with her makeup. A bright pink cheek, statement jewelry at her wrist, black & white color wheel, amazing double buckle sandals, & a printed bag to throw everything off. This look says I’m rocker chic, but spend a lot of my time at the flower mart. & what guy doesn’t love that?
romper simplicity

 

Look #4: hitting the Hampton’s this weekend? How about a trailer park pool party? Regardless, if you plan on spending the day in the sun, ditch your accessories & commit to being au naturel. There’s nothing worse than huge statement jewelry tan-lines, plus it’s just extra crap to take off before lotioning up. This black & white striped romper is one of my favorites this Summer; a light pink mani, tan, smooth skin, hair pulled back into a low bun, a hit of bronzer on your cheek bones & an amazing pair of sunnies…you’re good to go & the pool boy won’t keep his hands eyes off of you.
simple chicLook #5: boho babes can miss queue’s too; even the simplest of outfits need attention & the one above is executed brilliantly. With soft, wavy locks, pink lips, a crochet off-shoulder pullover [with a sexy pop of skin showing], a long beaded necklace, full length skirt with a sneak peek of leg, some great gold accents to enhance the vibrant navy skirt, an appropriate pair of dressy sandals [Old Navy $2 flip flops are not footwear, ladies] & a large nude clutch because simplicity is everything…this look is the perfect blend of ready for a cocktail, but up for a walk on the beach.

These simple tweaks in the way you approach an outfit can be monumental. Shifting the focus towards the fine details & making sure you complete the entire look not only makes you more put together, but will make you feel like the most fashion forward one in the room. & who doesn’t love that?

Happy Summer, babes. Xx.

Beaches Beware

Ok ladies, whether you like it or not, Summer is here [if you live in California, you’re probably about to pass out from heat stroke today]. & with that comes bikini’s. Yes. Those dreaded pieces of string that you use to “cover” yourself in front of your friends, husband, boyfriend, girlfriend, neighbors, while cleaning your car, throwing a pool party, or while dancing to the latest Beyoncé song on a boat…wherever you wear yours, you should feel confident & beautiful doing so.

Thus, I’m sharing with you my personal favorite bathing suit finds for this 2015 heat, so you can drop the towel & come out of hiding with a big smile & newfound confidence.

Whether you’re ready for it or not, it’s time to face those awful dressing room mirrors & lights, & find the right suit for you this season. Just remember, the key to feeling beautiful is feeling like yourself. Don’t buy a suit just because you’re size 2 friends loves it or even because I love it; make smart purchases & be the goddess you are, for you. Plus, has any guy ever told you, “Meh, I don’t really want to see you half naked on a beach or by a pool with a beverage in your hand”…yeah, I didn’t think so.

co ord grey

Co-Ordinate

Hey Mamas [enter Mother’s Day pun here], I hope you all had a beautiful weekend! I have had a wild past few weeks, but I’m back & more focused than ever to get some serious fashion deets your way to help prep you for the fast approaching Summer months.

So there’s a new trend making some serious headway & I want to talk it through. They’re called Co-Ord [coordinate] Sets. Familiar?

I’m referring to those freaking adorable two piece, matching outfits that basically make all fashion headaches go away [if executed properly]. & I’m obsessed with them. Plus, everyone loves an easy outfit trick that actually works. Think your moms favorite 90s skirt & pantsuit, but completely flipped on it’s ass. That’s basically the birthplace of a co-ord. & my absolute favorite part about this look is it’s versatility; every single one of my clients [regardless of age, body type, lifestyle, etc.] has been able to make these pieces work for them because there are hundreds of co-ord styles & sets. Not to mention, you simply throw them on & you’re set for the day. [Um, calling all people with busy lives, this outfit is your lifesaver].

But which one should you choose? What body type works best with which style? & how will you know you’re doing it right?

Hello! Enter: Lyric.

Picking The Right Co-Ord For You: with two piece outfits comes the subconscious fear of bathing suits & the painful reminder that your body just isn’t in the shape you want it to be. But the beauty of these two piece outfits [unlike bikini’s] is that you don’t have to show skin if you don’t want to. You can choose from long sleeve, short sleeve, halter, crop, pantsuit, sweater, floral, monochromatic, cotton, satin, & even chiffon co-ords. The limits are endless, allowing almost all women to adopt this style for their Summer wardrobe. Take note:

sweater co ordA long sleeved co-ord allows for more coverage & less fuss

sunflower co ordA cropped tank & mini skirt co-ord says, I’ve got it & I wanna flaunt it

blue floral ps co ordA cropped tank & knee length skirt co-ord works beautifully on any plus sized babe

pansuit co ord[& my personal favorite] The pantsuit co-ord, appropriate for work & play

What Body Type Works Best With Which Style: with all things should come truth; knowing & being honest with yourself about your body type is the first step toward finding confidence in what you wear. It took me a long time to accept my body type, but now I work [patiently] with select pieces until I find what works best for me. It’s all a process, but beginning is the first step. That being said, co-ord outfits are amazing for the hyper-body-conscious woman, because they allow for so much versatility:

floral co ordFor my babes with tummy troubles; ample coverage, loose-fitted top, a beautiful floral print & a little highlight for the legs, this co-ord takes all the attention off of the mid-section.

stripe co ordFor my sporty, athletic babes; a body-con, striped number draws major attention to those six pack abs, highlights thin stems, but still gives appropriate coverage to the shoulders & neckline.

Screen Shot 2015-05-11 at 10.12.31 AMFor my curvier babes; knee length, bright print, subtle hued co-ord’s are ideal. You can choose a cropped top dependent upon your comfort level, or go for a blousier look to add comfort & confidence.

co ordFor my petite babes; a tee & shorts co-ord is perfect. Balancing out the shoulders with a squared-off top, making the legs appear longer with hot pants, & highlighting the mid-section as your smallest point, this look will make you feel like a 6’5″ model in Paris.

thin co ordFor my thin babes; dare to bare. An ultra-cropped tank, racerback or tee can be the perfect addition to this look. Pair it with a fun, matching pant [for some added subtlety] & you’ll be honing your inner Twiggy in 0 seconds flat.

preggo co ordFor my mommy’s-to-be; with bright neon hues, a loose-fitting top & bottom, & ample chest & tummy coverage, this has to be the most adorable way to wear this look. Team with your favorite accessories & you’ll be the hottest MILF in the room.

Am I Doing It Right?: the best way to know you’re following the co-ord fashion philosophies of the world is to be certain that you feel beautiful. If you are immediately trying to cut the tags off in the fitting room & find something fun to do so you can showcase this new fit…then you’re doing it right. If you stand in front of the mirror wearing your co-ord, doing pirouette after pirouette, then you’re doing it right. If you are meticulously scrutinizing all of the things you don’t like about your body & how ugly you feel in the outfit…you absolutely are not doing it right.

These pieces of fabric that we lay across our bodies day in & day out are not there to simply cover our nakedness, but rather to be representations of who we are & what we exude. Take the time. Be patient. & find what speaks to you. Confidence is 90% of the gig, & the clothes tell the other 10% of your story.

Happy Coordinating, babes.

Xx.

Bach[elorette] Please

If you know anything about my personal life, you know that this year I will be attending [& participating in] 12 weddings. Yes. I just said that. TWELVE. It was one of those things where I was casually going through my 26 years of life thinking, “Hm, why doesn’t anyone invite me to their wedding…” & then. Thanks manifestation.

However, here I am, & bring on the love.

That all being said, with all this love comes engagement parties, bridal showers, bachelorette parties, rehearsal dinners & obviously, the big day. But what the hell do you wear & how do you select pieces in a productive & efficient way without turning into bridesmaidzilla?

Here I am darling, to help save the day.

Seeing as I now consider myself a wedding spectator expert, I’ve consolidated my top wedding tips on what to wear without losing your mind.

ENGAGEMENT PARTY: your bff, sister, friend, cousin…whomever, has just said “Yes” & you’re invited to the engagement party…

What To Wear: engagement parties are just the beginning of the process, so going overboard is not for this affair. Opt for feminine details [dresses being easiest], solid basics, soft prints, & minimal accessories [things that prevent from taking away from the bride]. Think cottons & polys. Top it off with a fun shoe & call it good. Here’s a few examples:

BRIDAL SHOWER: it’s time to show the bride your love; likely with mimosa’s flying & afternoon sunshine beaming, today is about being your classiest self. Think tea time with a little edge.

What To Wear: I say go all floral, sequins, chiffon, & lace on the brides shower day. Make it as whimsical & beautiful as possible. & if you can’t rock a cute heel, then at least play it up with a stylized flat or sandal. Like so:

pink skirt

gold and black

springy

two piece

all

BACHELORETTE PARTY/WEEKEND: it’s bound to get wild, so put on your best Vegas & go all in.

What To Wear: chances are high that you will be at a club/bar/restaurant at some point during this time together, thus having your best hairspray & sexist LBD is vital. However, don’t forget your most comfortable sweatpants & tee shirt for the morning after. Like this:

black on black

edgy

plus

bustier

romper

REHEARSAL DINNER: chances are if you’re a bridesmaid, you’ll be at this event; a crucial & probably most serious part of the wedding process.

What To Wear: the rehearsal dinner is the time to put on your best professional attire & not get sideways. Grab your favorite pair of grandma-approved heels, a cute top, or maybe even a reasonably long skirt & prepare to memorize your role.

navy blue scalloped

skirt

two piece lace

black maxi

As for what to wear to their Big Day, well you’ll just have to wait & see what I conjure up in coming blog posts ;]

Regardless of when the wedding festivities begin or how badly you even want to go, finding great pieces that represent who you are, while remaining comfortable & theme-appropriate is not an easy task. But it also shouldn’t cost you your sanity [or your life savings]. If you like any of the pieces shown above or have questions on finding the right outfit for your specific event, feel free to reach out in the contact section.

Fashion should be fun & approachable. & so should wedding season.

Happy Bridesmaiding, babes. Xx.

White Out

Does anyone else have a full fledged meltdown when white denim starts positioning itself on the shelves of your favorite retailers? As it is, I have a legitimate issue with denim; I need every wash, ever created. #certifiable. But white denim is my kryptonite. I want 100 pairs, all the exact same shade, no matter the cost. But. I cannot, for the life of me, find a thick enough pair that doesn’t show every single tiny little imperfection of my legs. Nobody wants to see that I ate an entire wheel of brie this past weekend. That’s not ever cute. So why do designers continue to make these flimsy, see-through versions year in & year out?

The struggle is real.

Thus, today, after scouring the internet, department stores & questioning friends & family alike, I’m posting my absolute favorite white denim finds. One’s with serious structure & texture, to prevent from looking like an awful 80s jazzercise outtake. In hopes that all of my fashion-hungry babes can attain this chic, clean look this Spring without compromising their comfort & security.

Here goes…

AG 'The Prima' Mid Rise CigaretteAG ‘The Prima’ Mid Rise Cigarette Jeans, Nordstrom, $164

For a more relaxed, everyday-wear pair, these AG’s are my favorite. They’re thick, hug every flattering inch of your lower half & are perfect from day to night. [Order up, they run small].

Catherine' Boyfriend Jeans (White) (Regular & Petite)KUT From The Kloth ‘Catherine’ Boyfriend Jeans, Nordstrom, $79.50

We all know how much I love a great boyfriend jean & these KUT From The Kloth jeans are no exception. For a more relaxed fit & aesthetic, these crops hit right above the ankle & are perfect for the beach. [Order down, they run big].

Screen Shot 2015-03-09 at 2.39.37 PM

Mid Rise Destroyed Cropped Jean, Express, $79.90

There is always a time & a place for a distressed pair of denim & these Express pair hit the mark. Keep in mind, they are a skinny jean, so they hug…a lot. More ideal for my thin legged babes, these jeans are the perfect partner to Spring tunics & days in the sun.

J.Crew Reid Cone DenimReid Cone Denim Jean, J.Crew, $95 [on sale now]

J.Crew can pretty much do no wrong in my book when it comes to denim, but they seriously nailed it this Spring with their Reid Cone jeans. Soft, breathable, structured…need I say more? You will live in these this Spring//Summer. & they’re on sale right now [use code: SPRINGSTYLE]

Screen Shot 2015-03-09 at 2.11.15 PMMiH Marrakesh Flare Jeans, Anthropologie, $195

& for my boho babes who need a little flare, come these MiH pair. Rich in texture, they have the perfect fan around the bottom to create an element of surprise & interest. Perfect for Summer concerts or BBQing with friends; these are a must have.

Whether you choose a pair mentioned above or find yourself shopping for others that better suit your fancy, just remember that fit, fabric & coverage are the key factors to perfecting white denim. & babes, don’t pair them with bright undies. You’re just setting yourself up for failure.

Happy Hunting. Xx.

Forget That. Get This.

After finishing up my past few consults & conversing with my clients about their major needs//wants out of this industry, I’ve concluded that people love a good deal. & bargain shopping is at an all time high. As much as we all love designer brands & high-end everything, it’s not realistic for the average human to spend $1,000 on new Jimmy Choo’s or a great handbag. One day. But not every day. So for those other 364, I’ve decided to help a babe out.

Today’s post is for my bargain shoppers who want a great product [or five] without the all the guilt. I’ve selected a few of my favorite 2015 shoes & found [reasonably priced] comparable products that you can purchase instead, without lacking quality. Capiche?

If there’s one thing I want my clients to learn through Lyric, it’s that personal style does not have to cost thousands of dollars; find pieces you love, that work for you & forget the rest. Thus, I’ll be doing a Forget That. Get This. post every month with my favorite bargain finds, to prove that personal style can be incredibly affordable & fun.

Today’s focus: SHOES. Let’s get started.

In this case however, ask me & I’ll seek for you; if you have any questions about a specific product & are on the hunt for a similar but price friendly version, shoot me an email [see contact tab for details] & I’m more than happy to help!

Happy Hunting, babes. & remember, don’t just buy it because it’s designer.

Summer Sun is Setting

Still have a few key Summer items that you have yet to purchase, but can’t convince yourself to spend hundreds on pieces that will only live to see a few more weeks? September 23rd will be here before you know it & your good money should go towards some amazing Autumn layering selections [blog post to come], instead of tank tops that will be shoved in the deep, dark depths of your closet in 9 weeks. However, with 100 degree heat still lingering among us a few wardrobe edits couldn’t hurt, so long as the price is right. Thus, I have decided to share with you one of my favorite budget-shopping secrets: ChicNova. The online site that doesn’t force you to hide your receipt from your husband/boyfriend/mom/etc. & their selections are vibrant, fun & so reasonably priced that you’re guaranteed to find those last minute Summer scores.

So go on. Shop. & don’t feel sorry about it for one single second, because you’re doing it right with this site. && you deserve it.

Xx.

PS. Here’s a few of my favorite pieces…

Sexy Sleep

If you’re anything like me, your sleep patterns can change pretty dramatically during the Summer months; with endless heat waves & constant sweating…sleep can seem like more a chore than a place of relaxation. But fear not, for I’ve found one of the sexiest & most unique intimates shops this season, to give you a break from the endless heat [not to mention, your special someone will have to seriously fight to keep their hands off of you].

Muy Bella Intimates is your one stop shop for some of the most detail-oriented intimates, crafted by some of the most creative Italian, Balinese & American designers on the planet. It’s a place for fearless babes with a fearless fashion sense to find pieces that break the mold & help better define their style from the inside out.

I could sit here & talk your ear off about all the reasons why I love this little slice of shopping heaven, but you should just go see for yourself…Happy Shopping, mega babes. Xx.
