Ok, so that title was a little bit of a bait and switch. A way to lead into talking about one of my favorite dress brands, Naked Wardrobe! Recently I wore this brand while on tour in Japan for NJPW and Wrestle Kingdom and man was it a hit!  From the red carpet to the streets of Tokyo I was turning heads left and right, thanks to these key, must have pieces!

 

What I love so much about this brand is that they cover the basics, but not in a basic way. This is, after all, Not Another Basic B...so when we cover basic pieces, we have to do it differently! That’s Naked Wardrobe. Take for instance the pink 2 piece set above...its classic in color and silhouette however, it’s got a hint of sex appeal that other brands just don’t have. The extra curve hugging really sets it apart and makes it stand alone. Paired with simple pumps, it’s still a “life of the party” look, without going over board.  

 

This black ribbed turtleneck dress offers options in styling. The ribbed look is subtle, so I could still wear these flashy star stockings and not feel out of place in any setting. I actually wore this look to Wrestle Kingdom! It was perfect for the occasion.  

 

This green ribbed dress is my favorite, for the unique cut, and the embellishments. The buttons are actual snaps, so you can control just how much thigh you want to show! This piece I wore for the Wrestle Kingdom press conference. As the only woman there, I felt chic, sexy, memorable and understated. And I got plenty of compliments!  

 

To shop any of these looks, head on over to Naked Wardrobe! You’ll find that their price points are quite pleasant and they always have fantastic sales!  

 

 

LIKEtoKNOW.it - how to shop my Instagram!

I gain new followers daily, so although some of you may be familiar with LIKEtoKNOW.it and the LTK App...quite a few are not! I'm often asked questions like "what lip color are you wearing?" "Where'd you get that top?" Or where can I find those shoes?"  It's all so simple my darlings! I make it that way for you so you will rarely have to ask...you can just like my picture, or screenshot my picture and shop the entire image IMMEDIATELY!  

I am able to do this through LIKEtoKNOW.it. It's a program and app designed for top level bloggers to share their looks with their followers quickly, and it allows you the ability to shop and consume those looks at your leisure!  Let me break it down for you guys, step by step!

Moments later, you will find it on the main page of your app, and you'll be able to click on individual items below the photo to shop them. So if you're just after these Alice + Olivia pumps, no sweat! Just click on them and you'll be taken to the place I got them from, you'll be able to shop just like any online shopping experience! And yes, you can return items that don't fit. It's literally just like shopping at Nordstrom or any of your other fave stores...because YOU ARE shopping there! You're just getting directly to the items you're looking for by way of my image. Make sense? Let's try... 

 

First I find a photo that I want to shop...

I find the image all broken down. Dress, jewelry, bags, shoes etc. I decide I want to buy this shell necklace, so I click on it below...

This takes me to Anthropologie (where, surprise! I bought this jewelry). And check that out! It's even on sale! 😍 I decide I'd like a necklace like this so...

I add it to my shopping cart as usual and I proceed to checkout just like I would normally.

See! It's your normal shopping experience, I'm just getting you to the products you want immediately instead of you having to guess and then sift through all of these items you don't want! It's streamlined and awesome and it's how I shop ALL OF THE TIME.  It's like having a personal stylist working for you, without having the pay them!  

Now, let's say you're not into apps. No problem! Just go to the LIKEtoKNOW.it website (it's just like above. No dotcom, it's dotIT) sign up with your email and then every time you "like" one of my pictures on IG those shopping breakdowns will be emailed to you instead of sent to an app. You can shop them just like I showed you above, except it will be from an email.  

 

Isnt that awesomely easy?? I hope you think so. Go try it. Let me know if you have any troubles at all. I'm happy to help guide you guys further. Trust me, this has changed shopping for me and it's gonna change it for you too...I promise!!! 

Dressing Room Round Up

Trying this...the other day I tried on a whole slew of items at Nordstrom, some were to purchase, others were just brands I was unfamiliar with and wanting to try for fit. I decided to snap picks in all of the outfits and document the experience for you guys and let you know what looks I was feeling, or not so much...so here we go!

Kicking the compilation off with the rompers. I'm a hard sell on rompers. I LOVE them. But the fit is always tough. I suppose I have a long torso, because many rompers steal my joy by giving me some kind of wedgie or another, I'll let you figure that one out. But this romper had the right ratio for me, as you can see, wedgie free. Super cute! I love the beautiful and unique olive color.  However, I chose to pass on this because of the pockets. Unless I had my hands in them, they were just kind of awkward. I suppose if you have a less curvey figure, the pockets would lay flat at all times and be less noticeable!

Romper number 2! Ever since the Stardust days I've been attracted to anything starry. This romper of course caught my eye. The pattern is exceptionally cute. It offers up the opportunity for some GREAT cleavage if you want to flaunt the girls without being totally over the top. Other than that, it didn't really do much for my figure, and I couldn't see myself wearing it really, so I passed on this one too. But it's really cute for the right figure and style!

On to what I DID choose to take home. First was this top. 😍  I'm a sucker for ruffles, and this has all of the ruffle action. I like the asymmetrical line of the one shoulder look, plus the ruffle. Really striking and different! What sold me fully on this top was the gorgeous color palette though. It's rainbow, but not obnoxious. I love the flowers! They are so classy and fun. This is a top that can be worn for many occasions and will get you plenty of compliments!

Finally, I chose to pick up this outfit. The American Flag never did me wrong, and I'm Mrs Nightmare for goodness sake.  I kind of have to own the patriotic look from time to time, and this is a subtle nod to the game! So the top is just a normal T. I Brandi'd it up by making it a cut off for the photo, but you can wear it and have your tummy covered, that's how it's meant to be worn. The shorts are amazing and my favorite. I have lots of destroyed denim shorts, none with American flag pockets, until now! So fun, not too over the top and probably the best thing is I think they were only 40 bucks! They fit fantastically. Just the right amount of stretch, not obnoxiously short. Perfect.  

 

I'm linking ALL of these looks on my IG via LIKEtoKNOW.it. By now I hope everyone has the app...it allows you to shop all of my looks easily and direct from the stores I bought them at, in this case, Nordies. For this post, all of these looks will be linked under one pictures.  

 

Happy Shopping!  

Parisienne Summer

Its been a while since I've been in the beautiful, fashion-forward city of love and lights. Paris. One of my absolute FAVORITE cities to explore! The shopping, the food, the museums, the ambiance...the shopping! 

When I found this beauitful striped, off-the-shoulder summer dress I knew I had to have it. It reminds me of all things Parisian. Black and white stripes are signature. The bare shoulders and body hugging fit of the dress provide a little sexiness and mystery. I'm obsessed with any type of ruffle this summer and this dress doesn't skip out on that charm either! It is both sexy and comfortable, making it perfect for an evening out on the town, quite like Paris! 

 I paired the look with these adorable black satin Chanel pumps with bows on the toes for that added bit of flair and luxury, and of course my new Louis Vuitton Double V handbag, which is almost sold out worldwide, by the way. If you're in love with it, you better score one soon or forever hold your peace!  

When you have a dress that is a bit understated, it's a great opportunity for some of your luxury pieces to shine! Hence the double dose of Louis and Chanel. It's such an easy and breezy piece that it can hold its own with both high end staples as anchors!  

The only thing missing from this look is a clever hat. A nice straw summer hat would be very nice with this look! A raspberry beret perhaps? Or a dangling earring! What would you add to this look to make it your own?

If you guys haven't yet, please make sure to download the LIKEtoKNOW.it app and shop my Instagram! You can shop simply by screen shotting posts to my page or even my Instagram stories! The app loads all of the details for your own personalized experience making it VERY easy for you to shop or browse my looks at your leisure. It's how I do A LOT of my shopping! It's so easy and fun to use I cannot express that enough! So go get it now and leave me a comment letting me know how you like the app!
