Look for Less: Eva Longoria

 "In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different." - Coco Chanel

First of all, I'd like to say Happy International Women's Day to my beautiful and ambitious ladies out there!  After my first "Look for Less" blog post, I received a lot of positive feedback and requests for another one.  Therefore, today's post features yet another one - Eva Longoria.  I love the simple and casual look with just the right pop of color and handbag choice.  For this look, I paired a sheer collared shirt with some denim skinny jeans and these bright purple platform heels by Steve Madden.  Open-toe platform heels are the perfect Spring/Summer shoe. 

For those of you who don't know, Jason Wu recently designed and launched a line for Target and everything nearly sold it immediately after it was released.  I managed to snag this two-toned handbag, which goes with everything!

What I'm wearing:
Guess gold watch
F21 blouse
ZARA skinny jeans
Steve Madden platforms

The Skinny Tie

One of my favorite trends right now is menswear for women.  However you prefer to style it, it can add a bit of structure or power to your look.  For this look, I paired a tuxedo jacket with a collared blouse, a lace skinny tie, and sequin pants.  I've also acquired quite the craving for these loafer heels as well.  They add a feminine touch to a masculine shoe.  What do you guys think about menswear for ladies?

What I'm wearing:
Vintage tuxedo blazer
F21 blouse
F21 skinny tie
Arden B pants
Hautelook (Me Too) heels

The Red Jacket + Leopard Print

Happy Wednesday everyone!  As I mentioned in my weight loss post, I have a little baby boy now and today he's 6 months old.  It's amazing how fast time really flies by.  I feel so blessed.  For today's post, I have featured one of my go-to outfits.  I have been collecting blazers in various colors and when I need to put something together that is simple and quick, I grab one of them.  One of the essential pieces that every woman should have in her closet is a red jacket or blazer because it can be paired with a multitude of items.  In this instance, I've paired it with a leopard print top, some distressed black skinny jeans and platform booties.  This look is comfortable, yet put together.  What are some of your go-to pieces?

What I'm wearing:
F21 blazer
Arden B blouse
F21 skinny jeans
Movado watch

Comfortably Chic

What I like about these pants is that they can be dressed up or down.  For instance, most would wear them as pajama pants but I decided to go for something a little bit more versatile by pairing them with a sheer collared shirt with boho-chic accessories.  I added the mustard toned high heels for a pop of color as well.  What are some of your favorite items to dress up or down?

What I'm wearing:
Forever 21 hat
Forever 21 top
Target belt
ZARA pants

As you can see, the black trim from these silk pants really complements the detailing of my blouse.  These are probably the most comfortable pair of pants that I own.  They are lightweight and I love the feel of them.  Since we're having beautiful weather today, I decided to go with a look that is comfortable yet light. 

What I'm wearing:
H&M sheer blouse
Target tank top
ZARA silk pants
Guess gold watch
Forever 21 bracelet
Sally Hansen Presto Pink nail polish
