Fringe Poncho Sweater

With the weather getting colder, there’s nothing I love more than bundling up in an over sized sweater by the fireplace. This over sized sweater finished with a fringe hem is the ideal winter piece to carry you through the season. I love the idea of balancing it out with skinny jeans and boots or layering it over a dress with a statement necklace for a less casual feel. The fringe poncho also makes for a great transitional piece into spring! 

There is only one more week until Christmas; grab your last minute gifts at our online boutique or stop in your closest Grand Central Clothing or Divaz Boutique locations!

Lace & Studs

The combination of lace and studs is the perfect balance of femininity and edginess; this high low dress encompasses just that. The high low hem makes it a fundamental dress for this holiday season, the front hem gives it a cocktail dress vibe meanwhile the back hem gives it a more formal appeal.

Hidden Jewel

The high low hem, dark hue, and hidden jewel detailing makes for the quintessential holiday dress! The embellished opening adds the perfect mixture of glam and femininity. When wearing an embellished ensemble I opt for a minimalistic look; adding soft waves and nude peep toe heels. The idea is to let the intricate detailing make a statement and this dress is certainly no exception. The Peek a Boo Jewel High Low Dress also comes in burgundy! What would you wear this dress with?

Holiday Dress

I love this time of year for the pure fact that it gives me all the more reason to wear pretty dresses and get dolled up to celebrate the holiday season with loved ones. The detailing on this cage cutout high low dress is a favorite of mine as it's a great option for the upcoming holiday parties yet still works for those unexpected date nights. I decided to style this dress with sleek straight hair, a nude lip, and finished it off with simple black pumps. Regardless of what your holiday style may be, adding a little glam to your ensemble is a fun pick me up any time of the year! For more holiday party inspiration come join us on Pinterest!

One and Only One Shoulder Dress

We're completely in love with one shoulder dresses this holiday season; they reveal just enough skin for a sexy yet classing look. We love the effortless flow of this high low hem and the asymmetrical cut adds a slimming affect by instantly drawing attention upward and elongating the body. This trend has certainly proven itself as a fashion staple and it's here to stay! We also carry the One and Only One Shoulder Dress in black. What trend can you not wait to wear this holiday season?

All In The Details

I'm immediately drawn to pieces with embellishments and this romper with beaded detailing is no exception. The intricate detailing adds the perfect amount of interest and instantly dresses up the romper making it a much more wearable piece for those more formal events. The easiness of a romper is admittedly my favorite, as you don't have to worry about coordinating an outfit. Instead you simply slip on a sleek romper,  bold accessories, and a bright lip for a chic look that makes for a great alternative for those nights out with the girls. How do you like to style rompers?

The Perfect Chiffon Skirt

As the weather begins to gradually cool off, I have been practically living in this a-line chiffon skirt. It makes for the perfect transitional piece as it's easy to layer for the cold evenings, yet versatile enough to wear to just about any occasion while still adding a refreshing pop of color. I particularly love the a-line shape as it's extremely figure flattering for all sizes and the chiffon material makes for a feminine feel. Did I mention it's only $20! Recently I wore the purple chiffon skirt with a jewel colored blouse and gold accessories to go with the recent jewel tone trend. For more fall trends join us on Facebook or Pinterest!

Not Your Average Button Up

A basic button up is a key wardrobe piece, as it’s a versatile yet functional piece that can be worn all year long. It pairs well with shorts and sandals, or even tucked in with a blazer. But who says a button up has to be basic?  Embellishments are a huge trend this fall and with the cool weather slowly shifting this brass button down with pleated sleeves is the perfect piece to update your wardrobe for fall. It also makes for the perfect foundation to start layering. I personally like to start off with a simple blouse and add layers in different textures to create a comfortable yet chic look.Come join us on Pinterest for more fall inspiration!

Peplum Trend

My closet is quickly filling up with peplum tops, skirts, and dresses, as it’s a trend I simply can’t get enough of this fall. The cut gives the illusion of a cinched in waist and looks great on every body type imaginable. This red peplum dress with the sheer front mesh detailing is one of my favorite dresses to wear this fall and for under $30 you can't go wrong. I like to pair it with ankle booties,and an array of bracelets which makes for the quintessential fall outfit.  You can also pair a peplum top with:
  • Wide leg trousers 
  •  Distressed denim
  • A simple pencil skirt
  • Sandals and shorts
As you can see the peplum is a versatile design that is great for a casual look yet can still be dressed up. What do you think about the peplum trend? Will you be giving it a try this fall?
