Piece-by-Piece: On the Dot

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





1st Annual GQ Party: Recapped

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

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.

Thing of the Week: Little White Dress

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

Donatella Does H&M (Men’s)

Yes, that’s correct as many of you fashion tweekers know back a couple of years ago Donatella declared that Versace would not part take in a diffusion line. Well the fab Ms. V has choked on and swallowed her words, because on November 19, 2011 the Versace for H&M line will hit about 300 stores worldwide. Personally this is a Godsend because I borderline worship at the leathery booties that are Donatella’s feet and LIVE LIVE LIVE for her heavenly voice that sounds like she’s been smoking and gargling nails since the moment of conception. I get a little twinkle in my eye every time her collagen filled lips utter any kind of sound it’s like angels singing on high . Well here are a few items from the men’s line that I LIVE FOR!

First up is this pink jacket. While you may not want to look like a bottle of Peptol Bismol has exploded on you by wearing the full pink suit that the line has to offer, you can always split up the suit. Wear just the jacket to add a bit pizzazz to your drab wardrobe. ($149)

 Next is this modern take on the classic black jacket. I live for the long lapel and it’s perfect for sprucing your look up for those crazy holiday parties you partake in. ($199)

I also live for this leather jacket because it’s so Kanye. If you wore you could feel free to express your greatness to anyone who would listen and also to TYPE IN ALL CAPS!

I live for these dress shirts ($49.95) and dress pants ($69.95) because they’re not your everyday basic pieces. The shirts have a great gold embellishment at the end of the collar, which are ideal for when you need to look down and be reminded of how royal you are.  The pants seem to be quite fitted, and for anyone who knows me you’ll know that the less I can breathe or bend over in my pants the more I love them.

Reason number one I live for this tank ($34.95) it’s shiny. Reason number two, it makes me feel like a knight in shining armor and I can picture myself wearing it and running around poking people with a stick whilst yelling “YOU’VE JUST BEEN JOUSTED THE EFF OUT!!!”

This scarf ($34.95) is the right mix of obnoxious and if I was under some kind of recreational substance and waved it around I’m sure I’d feel like a magical leopard was chasing me while spewing out a glorious rainbow of awesomeness.

And for the less daring here’s this scarf ($49.95) It’s less daring, ‘nuff said.

Oh and here’s these briefs ($17.95) yea wearing these would make anyone feel like sex wrapped in bacon. YUMMMMM

 Last but not least here’s some leather pants ($299) I only really love them, not because they make me feel like a member of a hair band in the 80s therefore giving me license to be inebriated all the time, but because they remind me of the episode of Friends where Ross can’t put his leather pants back on and he lathers lotion on his legs as well as baby powder and hijinx ensues. It makes me giggle inside.
