Sabo Skirt

July 16, 2012

Hello, lovebugs!
I just wanted to reach out to all of you and send my sincerest gratitude for bearing with us these past weeks. You can never anticipate what life will throw at you and I believe it’s safe to say that it’s been a rough year for the majority of us. While we’ve all been catching up with life… we’re finally returning from our small hiatus. The support and comments have meant so much to us. We’re excited to show more of a variety of things this year, new experiments and upcoming artists. Thank you for hanging tight and staying the truest of fans. I’m looking at you, Pinterest supporters!
So, let’s cut to the chase… I rolled upon a really awesome website/blog. SaboSkirt.com is equal parts blog and fashion store. You’ll find the latest trends on a weekly basis. I find their style simple, girly, fresh and comfortable. You’ll fall in love with their tiny cross bracelets, knit tops and fun shorts. I’m always a fan of pastels and soft colors – so you’ll find it easy to pair pieces on their website. Check out a few of my faves below and be sure to visit their store for more items. saboskirt.com









Piece-by-Piece: On the Dot

May 30, 2012

Hi, Dolls! I hope you all enjoyed your Memorial Day weekend and a sincere thank you to all of those who fight for our country and for our freedom! Aside from trying to catch up on some beauty sleep, I couldn’t resist my favorite Memorial Day sales. I’m really digging these high-low collared chiffon blouses. They’re comfortable, professional and can transformed easily from day-to-night. I’m finding a lot of them in TJ Maxx and Forever 21. Here is a Piece-by-piece breakdown:

  • Beige polka dot high-low button down shirt (Marshalls)
  • Mint Skinnies (can be found at Target, Forever21 or H&M)
  • Jessica Simpson Fuschia peep-toes with Gold heel
  • Teal vintage clutch





Splurge or Steal

May 14, 2012

Hey Dolls! It’s been awhile! I feel like part of me has been missing.. kinda like leaving your favorite red lipstick at home. Just doesn’t feel right. Your SC family has been on a small hiatus, due to a ton of work and new career challenges.. for us all. BUT we’re back and better than ever! So let’s get on to the good stuff..

Prada has done it again! Coming from their Spring 2012 highlights, they’ve stolen the spotlight with patent leather, neon peep-toes! They. are. to. die. for! See for yourself…

So, after you’ve picked up your jaw from the floor.. I want to tell you where you can get the same look for a lot less (Neon Prada pumps go for a measly $720.00.. pocket change!), so I’ve picked two online stores that are relatively close in comparison. We’re well aware that Urbanog.com and lulus.com are my go-to sites for finding items at a steal. So i’m going to let you decide. Who do you think took to the challenge better?

Lulus.com:  price at $29.00

 

 

Urbanog.com: priced at $25.60

 

 

1st Annual GQ Party: Recapped

April 15, 2012

Hey, loves! So if you didn’t have a chance to make it out to Dynasty Events’ 1st annual GQ party, you missed out! It was a blast! I’ve attached some pictures of the night, along with a few key things we found that worked best for club attire. Some things we saw that we really like:

  • Color blocking, Neutral colors and pops of color
  • LBD’s  with statement heels
  • Suspenders and Fedoras
  • Blazers and chain drop earrings
  • Knowing how to dress up jeans
  • Ties, bowties and more ties!

some of our fashionable friends really pulled out all the stops! Two of which were the winners of gift cards to H&M sponsered by Dynasty Events and the Society Chic team! It was an unforgettable night and we hope you see you out there next year! Be sure to head over to our Facebook to see more pictures from the night! - The SC Team

TOTW: Mind Your G’s and Q’s

March 29, 2012

Hey, Society! Bigs news! For a recent collab with DynastyEvents.com, a successful promotion company in Tampa Bay, we’re sponsoring gift cards for the best dressed girl and guy at the Dynasty Events’ annual GQ party, being hosted at The Hyde Park Cafe! I’ve attached the official flyer below and I hope you’ll join myself & the rest of the Society Chic team, along with the Dynasty Events family for a fashionable night to remember! Come dressed in your best because yours truly will be a judge for the winners! You can get on the FREE guestlist by heading to DynastyEvents.com and putting yourself on Melissa San Vicente’s guestlist.

Inspired by the GQ party, and with GQ in general, we decided to compile a few looks for the night out. Along with our looks, we’ve written a few commandments that men MUST live by when dressing for the nightlife. To avoid a Debbie Downer and to reap the benefits for guaranteeing yourself in the club (as opposed to being sent home for dress code), we advise you to stick with our guidelines and they’ll never steer you wrong!

Ten Commandments of Nightlife Attire:

  1. Dress-up: You can never be overdressed, and if you feel out of place, at least you’re the best dressed.
  2. Denim: keep your denim choices limited to a dark wash and fitted/straight leg style. Colored pants are fine, depending on your outfit, so choose wisely. 
  3. Minimize: having bulky pockets are a no-no. Keep only the essentials. Credit card, ID, spare cash in a small wallet.
  4. Soles: Don’t wear sneakers to a club. There’s a difference between fashion shoes and a beat-up pair of Air Force 1′s that you refuse to throw away. Also… wear flip-flops to a club and we’ll disown you. 
  5. Smell: Don’t wear too much cologne. No one wants to be intoxicated by your fumes.
  6. Ties: Do experiment with ties. They aren’t only for holidays. Ties can be used as your most bold accessory. Try out a color you’ve never tried before (lavender, magenta, mustard) or a pattern that you didn’t think would be “you” (paisley, geometric prints, plaid).
  7. Quality: Invest in a pair of quality shoes. Find a pair that suits you best, and have those as your “go to” shoe when you have no idea what to wear. 
  8. Keep it at the Shore: Bedazzled shirts and neon dragons (covering your tees) are out. Keep your shirts simple and ALWAYS ironed/steamed. Your look will always look more put-together with a crisp shirt.
  9. Bling: Don’t wear gaudy jewelry ie: big chains, overly chunky watches, golds in your mouth (unless you’re Flava Flav). Fist pumping just can’t be done if there’s a possibility of you injuring someone.
  10. Stay True: Have fun with your style. Look to the pages of GQ and find looks that you’d like to try out. Have a style that defines you and that makes you comfortable. Confidence is your best accessory, so if you’re not “feeling” your outfit, odds are it’ll show in your confidence. 
We hope you’ll keep this and use it as a guide on your next big event. And if you follow our rules and STILL get kicked out of a club for incorrectly dressing.. call us! We gladly accept the challenge. We hope to see you out there and we’ll be keeping a close eye on our faves! Good Luck!
Now, for some looks that’ll assure you to the front of the line.

Cinemagraph + Tiffany & Co.

March 14, 2012

Good Morning! Has every had their coffee this morning? Aside from needing my daily dose of caffeine (as a kid, I’d make my mom’s coffee and would taste it to make sure it was JUST right before handing it off to her. Therefore, I blame her for my slight addiction) I’m always browsing my favorite blog sites to spark a little inspiration and creativity. So, today I came across some pretty amazing photos that I wanted to share with you. From me to You is a popular photography blog I’ve been following -that I absolutely LOVE! The other day they featured these fantastic photos from Tiffany & Co. by Cinemagraph (Cinemagraph™ © 2011 Jamie Beck & Kevin Burg). When you have a chance, you’ve got to check out their website. I’m so obsessed with how the models are able to stay so still while they’re taking the photos. You almost have to sit and wait to see what is moving in the picture. So creative and daring. I hope you’ll find these images just as inspiring as I have!

 A little sidenote I’ve kept in the back of my mind for some time: We all know that ideas and art don’t just come out of a can you can buy at the supermarket. Many people ask me “How do you come up with these ideas and outfits?”.. and my response is always “inspiration.” Bare in mind that we (Noche, Marti, Waffles & myself) will always try to feature things we’re loving, wearing, inspired by and the like. We never receive any kind of money for the items we feature, and if we do, we’ll be completely transparent about the relationships we hold with our partners. We just want you to love the stuff that we love -and we’re committed to doing just that. And.. well, if you don’t like it? Then that’s okay! While its wildly impossible to cater to all the masses, we hope that just one of our styles and ideas cater to at least one of you. Just something I’ve been wanting to share, because I get these questions all the time. I’m mustering up the time to come up with a quick FAQ page for all the amazingly great emails we get! So, enough of my rambling. Have a sweet Wednesday…
Oh, and remember to love a little, okay? ox - M

Put a Little Peplum In Your Step

March 13, 2012

So, the other day I thrifted this super fab little peplum top, that can be seen here (which I paired with a purple bodycon skirt from Forever21, Express belt, and Bamboo platforms from UrbanOg.com -anddd forgive my iPhone. The picture is quite blurry). I’ve been seeing this trend a lot and wanted to bring it front and center for my fashion-hungry readers! I’ve always been an avid supporter of LuLus.com and love all of the pieces they have to offer. They’re always up-to-date with current trends (& appropriately priced), so it didn’t surprise me when I found a plethora of items under the word “Peplum”. I’ve also included my ShopStyle links for you to click-through. Are you loving the peplum trend like I am? Let me see the pictures! Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter @Society_Chic and find our pretty little links to our socials on the right side of this page. We’re constantly updating and working to get our site in tip-top shape! Thanks for always being so patient with us, babes! Have a fab week! ox - M

Thing of the Week: Little White Dress

March 9, 2012

So.. you knew this was coming, right? Every girl should own a LBD (Little Black Dress, for those of you living under a rock), but what about the little white dress we’ve seen gracing the runways and streets? I know, if you’re anything like me, you’re already trying to figure out how to pull off this look without resembling a toddler in “Sunday’s best”. It’s a difficult trend to pull, but with the right elements -you’re bound to nail your favorite look. So for the TOTW (Thing of the Week.. you poor, deprived rock-living people), I’m giving all of my ladies a fair share of the very trendy LWD. I hope you’ll find that one of our looks fits your style to a T. Have an awesome weekend and remember.. light dress, light food! Wine comes in all different colors, you know? :) *thumbs up* Later, babes. - M

Latest Obsessions: Marvel in March

March 7, 2012

Hey, lovlies! It’s been such a super-fab month for me. Checking things off my ‘to-do’ list, partaking in new adventures, and finding inspiration in the most unique places. I cannot stress how thankful I am that Spring is on it’s way and bringing TONS of color for it’s arrival. I’ve lately obsessed over a few things that I had to share! Remember to keep trying new things. As I continue to travel through this journey, I’m finding that it’s becoming easier to mix-n-match patterns, try different colors, and go out of my comfort zone for things I wouldn’t normally wear. The latest finds in Spring have shown that matching is just not in the cards! Add pops of color to your outfits by fasening a bright flower to your blazer, or find a patterned heel that you can pair together with a striped boat tee and a pleated skirt. Look out for our latest TOTW. I’m beyond excited to share! Until next time! *waves*
