STYLING THE SKINNY

oliviapic

I had a great opportunity to partner with Lucky Magazine and the lovely Jordan Reid of Ramshackle Glam on a denim style session last month. Jordan is such a beauty and has a great sense of style, so I was really excited to work with her and the Lucky team on the shoot. Watch and find out how we styled skinny jeans to create two completely different looks, both featuring the ultra-comfy patented Secret Fit Belly® panel. Look for part II of our collaboration featuring the boyfriend jean coming soon. –Olivia

Casual Cravings

Sleeveless A-line Maternity Dress

The summer grants many opportunities for outside parties & dining al fresco. People are also more apt to walk places, get some sun & explore nature. Dresses are easy outfits, because they are ready to throw on, go out & look completely put together. However, many dresses are too frilly, too restricting & actually just a little too dressy. Enter our sleeveless a-line dress, the one that will take you to that backyard party, to dinner under the stars, to a spontaneous walk to the farmer’s market on a Sunday afternoon.

This dress has a geometric print that makes people take notice without screaming, “Look at me!” The white with grey combo combines for effortless style. The spaghetti straps keep you cool & provide you with the ability to throw on a cardigan, scarf or little jacket when the sun goes down.

The length, which falls just above the knee, is the most versatile since you have the option to dress it up with heels, wedges & even platforms. But because it isn’t too short or too long, flats, sandals & flip flops give this a summery edge.

Let your hair down to frame the v-neck or throw your hair in a messy bun to showcase the back-interest keyhole design. This dress makes sure you look good coming or going.

You are constantly craving the look that works for every day & in every way. This dress is our MOST CRAVED & now your clothing crush!

A Wardrobe of White

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

White has many different connotations- pure, clean, bright. Then there is that statement, “white hot.” What does it all mean when trying to add white into your wardrobe? You have probably heard the rule about not wearing white after Labor Day. It is crazy to think that so much time is dedicated to this color, that some argue is only a shade.

Well, call us crazy, because we are about to dedicate a little more time to the color that crisps up any outfit, lightens any look & potentially just may be the chicest shade.

White acts a canvas for you to style with jewelry, belts, scarves and other colored accessories. Take a basic white dress, which alone looks summery & sleek, now add a nude bag, gladiator sandals & brown sun glasses- you are the epitome of a Grecian Goddess. Or, pop on some yellow high heels, a pink purse & green bangles for a look that is sure to draw attention & compliments. White makes color pop.

White is known as the summer staple because unlike it’s opposite, black, it actually reflects the sun & thus the heat. Throw on white shorts to keep your legs looking cool or a white cover-up over your bathing suit to keep the baby bump protected.

The white-on-white trend is the classiest fashion statement since, well, black-on-black. The difference? It is uniform, but also unexpected. It is the most mod, mommy-in-the-making monochromatic look!

The plain white-tee has become a cult classic at this point, & white sweaters, summer sweatshirts, blouses & tanks are following suit. White is the look of the season- there is no doubt about that & no question that white will always look pure, clean & bright.
