Sabo Skirt

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

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

New Kid On The Block

Hey, kids! Are you still awake? I know I’m aching for a good nap! I finally get to fill you in. I’ve recently started a new position at a successful and all-around-amazing Marketing company (those ARE the details, you little creepers) and I’m so thrilled to excel in my career and to take the next step! With all great opportunity, comes a new outfit! Well.. for me at least. My mother always taught me to dress for success and it’s exactly what I do! Like any other girl, my feet are killing me by the end of the day, it’s too hot to wear a blazer all day long (it’s Florida, people.. stay with me), but that never stops me from dressing for the position that I want. Isn’t confidence and determination a girl’s best accessory? I think so! You have to remember that people are going to feed off of your good energy and attitude. If you think all day long “I hate my job”, don’t you think people will sense that in your everyday persona? Besides, who needs shoulder pads when you have the stance of a lion?

I guess you can say I know a thing or two about dressing professionally. I somehow came out of the womb in heels and holding a briefcase. I get that from my mother, for sure! But when you’ve work at a few “corporate-y”  places.. you’ve seen just about everything and anything. While this is just too much to touch small base on, I will be sure to include some things of what to/not do in a later post. And by later I mean when I have the brain capacity to really jog my memory of all the awful things I’ve encountered over the years!

An outfit I put together for my first day is attached. You’ll notice that It’s still very conservative -yet playful. I’ll be sure to keep re-caping my outfits for you. This is huge for me.. as I’m sure you can understand. You’re more than welcome to ask questions about interview outfits and I’d be happy to share my 25 cents! I’m slightly behind on time – which is why you haven’t seen any actual piece-by-pieces from me. I wish I could post more, but there are just NOT enough hours in the day. More soon! I hope I get to see you all at DynastyEvents‘ First Annual GQ Party, where Society Chic will be the official judges! Love you, babes!

Put a Little Peplum In Your Step

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

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

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*

Waffy’s Word: Sunglasses

Hey there tweekers! It’s been a hectic time lately for my brain. I got kind of lost and sidetracked for a moment and ended up in Narnia. I was warned to not let my alter ego Waffy Lohan get in the way of my postings, but of course neither of us listen.

Buts alas, here I am in a semi clear state of mind ready to bring you this post of the ONE THING I completely and absolutely live for.

SUNGLASSES!

OMG, I love love love love sunglasses. I cannot stress enough how essential sunglasses are to my life. I feel naked being in public without my sunglasses.

Now, this post is just a tad different in that instead of focusing on a certain pair of sunglasses or bringing you great deals on them (which will still be done) I’m going to offer my philosophy and views on this must have, can’t live without accessory.

Ok, so first of all let me say that I absolutely live in my own world where I’m the star of my own life. It’s a tad delusional but I honestly believe that I am some kind of messiah brought upon this earth to bestow my beauty and knowledge amongst the mere mortals that inhibit this solemn planet.

Yes, I know im full of it, but humor me. Ok so I love sunglasses because i LITERALLY wear them ALL THE TIME. I can’t drive my car unless I have a pair of sunglasses on, I can’t walk anywhere in public unless my eyes are concealed, and heaven forbid someone look me directly in the eyes. Sunglasses are also the answer to hangovers. I mean slap on a pair of sunglasses on your mug and it’s like you’re refreshed and ready to take on whatever the day bombards you with.

I generally don’t like interacting or socializing with people when I don’t have to so when in public I always maintain a stoic facial expression as well as a big ‘ol pair of glasses on. Yes, I think I’m related to Victoria Beckham.

Anywhoooo, there are a couple of key things to remember when buying sunglasses. First of all take into consideration the shape of your face. I of course can pull most styles off, and for me the bigger the better. Here’s a quick guide to help you on your journey into super sunglass stardom.

Rectangle:

Rectangular or oblong faces need frames that are wider. It’ll help your face not look quite so Humpty Dumpty like. Your faces is rectangular if it’s longer that it is wide.

Round:

Whatever for the life of you and those around you, DO NOT wear any round frames. Look for frames that are as wide as the widest part of your face. Any thing round or small will just make your head look like a globe.

Oval:

Praise the high heavens if you have an oval face. You have the face that everyone wants. Pretty much you have the birkin of faces. Your face can handle any style so don’t be afraid try anything on.

Square:

For this face shape you’ll want to choose frames that curve your face. Frames thar are round will be your best friends.

Diamond:

For a diamond face you’ll want to choose oval like frames. It’s highly likely that you have high cheekbones if you gave a diamond shaped face so also go for slightly bigger frames.

Heart:

You’ll want to choose frames that have a straight top line. These kind of glasses will balance out your face.

 

Oh and lastly, seeing as I tend to lose and break every pair of glasses I’ve ever had I don’t spend much money on them. I don’t usually buy brand name sunglasses. Certain retailers have great sunglasses for anywhere from $10-$15.

There you have it tweekers. Now set forth and spread Waffy’s word.
