{ Stripes & Embroirered }

 

 

Bold ruffles, stripes and embroidery are all the craze this season and I’m all over it. These trends are a major hit among fashion girls, magazines, runways and yeah, they can sometimes not be the most flattering on everyone’s figure. However, today I’m going to share a few tips on how to work around it and make it work for you. Now that I own my own boutique I hear these comments from so many girls and here’s what I have to say!

{Stripes}

Choose vertical stripes to lengthen your physique

{Bold Ruffles}

Opt for the ruffles in the areas that you either want to accentuate or hide. Examples, arms or bum area.

{Embroidery}

Less is more, I think. I only choose items that are embroidered in areas that I don’t mind people looking at.

Now go shopping and keep these quick tips in mind.

Thanks for reading and till next time!

{ Pretty with Yellow Pompoms }

 

Hi friends!

How fun is dressing up for this season? I love all the vibrant colors, fun accessories like this cute straw bag and tassel earrings. Most of the looks/outfits I have been wearing lately are from my boutique- Fancy Boutique. I love to pick out items for clients and style each look according to their personally and I’m not going to lie sometimes they tell me they feel silly. We all have our individual style and that’s ok. I believe that getting dressed is the way you express your creative side to others. My favorite part about having the boutique has to be the styling part, putting each outfit together according to the occasion. That’s when my creative juice starts going and I feel fulfilled.

{ Bows, Lace, Tassels & Pretty Fancy Things }

The title of this blog post summarizes to a T, the way I feel like dressing up lately! All I want to wear are pretty “fancy” things, literally. Anything and everything from my boutique, Fancy Boutique. Opening this store was a huge dream of mine and it’s still a pinch me moment. I walk in every morning and think wow, dreams do come true. I have so many ideas for this little space, so many plans and things I want to do and the only thing I think of is why not? No matter how big the dream is, why not? Who’s going to stop me? But my favorite part is shopping for the store and picking out looks that I wish to see girls walking around in. My biggest hope is that girls walk in to the store and leave feeling confident, happy, pretty & empowered. So I only shop for things that I would absolutely love to wear myself and pick out the prettiest things. Really, everything with cute details, even if it’s a little lace like on these high waisted shorts. Isn’t the lace peeking through such a cute detail? I think these shorts should be in every girl’s closet and the color is perfection for spring. I paired them with this gorgeous off the shoulder crop top with bows on the sleeves and added these fun and festive earrings to tie in my newest Henri Bendel bag. What do you guys think of this look?

Hello all,

Excuse me if all I want to do is twirl  in this look all day (with my pink hair)! I’m just that excited about this ensemble and couldn’t wait to share it with you. It’s one of my recent favorites, thanks to this gorgeous and flattering skirt. It’s so dreamy and designed to flatter with a tight waist. My favorite part is the flowy ball gown cut that’ll flutter with you every step. I feel like a modernized Disney princess, maybe because I’m also rocking pink hair. If you follow me on snapchat and on my other social media platforms (afancyaffair) , you saw the transformation, but if not, here it is! I’m that pink hair girl.  I told you guys the feeling of dying my hair was brewing and I finally took the plunge, put on my big girl pants, called my momma (aka, my hairdresser) and did it. I removed my long locks and went for a shorter do so it wouldn’t be that shocking. Who am I kidding? It’s shocking!! I shock myself every morning when I look in the mirror and the pink bed head is out of control cray cray. Update… I washed it once after these photos and it’s almost faded away. Still not sure if I’m going to do it again. I might just wait till I return from NYC in a few weeks. By the way, who’s going to the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic Rose Garden party? I will be there and would love to meet and rose with you all day! Read More…

If there’s anything that I’m more obsessed with this time of year, it’s the blue hues. It’s the color that happens to be in everything I want to wear. Not because I’m a fan of the tone, but as of lately anything blue is calling my name. Maybe it’s time to head to the beach and emerge in the blue ocean. lol… When I walked into the Koko & Palenki store, I saw this beautiful dress and just knew I had to have it (along with everything else in this startling store!). Koko & Palenki never fails me. It’s one of those stores that you just can’t walk out of empty handed. They have something to complement every style and every occasion. Now back to the dress- it is just dreamy. So flowy, airy yet with the perfect fit. Read More…

Hey friends!
This dress! This dress, my friends, has been on repeat. It’s starting to look like a floral frenzy around here since that’s all I want to wear, but you know how it goes! Once you find a versatile piece that matches with everything, it’s easy to pair with everything and create different fun looks and I love that. I picked this one up from Maruchi– a local boutique that I’ve mentioned on here before. Remember these looks (here and here)?  It’s one of those stores that you’re guaranteed to walk out with options and we all know that’s what every girl wants, options!  This is a look that I wore for Easter, a baby shower and for a stroll and day date with the hubby. The intricate detail on this dress is epic and looks good from every angle and all around.

Hello there!

I wore this really cute little number to a recent girl’s day brunch with a few Miami fashion bloggers and I just can’t get enough of this look. If you follow me on snapchat and Instagram (@AFancyAffair) you probably saw a glimpse of our rendezvous. This look is so feminine, chic and has a bit of sex appeal because the bodysuit is so form fitting. It’s all business in the front and party on the back. Ahh, it’s so me!! By the way, are you guys sick of seeing these fringe and tassel Margo Schutz sandals? I’m not sick of wearing them, yet I literally reach for them all the time and the first thought that comes to my head is, “Really Amanda, again?” (I promise you guys I’m not crazy, but I really do think of these things! Lol… Just being honest). Someone told me you’re only considered crazy when you start answering yourself! I haven’t done that yet, so I’m guessing I’m still good. Now back to the outfit- I’m in love. Do you like it? The skirt was part of a crop top set, which I wore (here) a few weeks back. I was dying to wear it all together, but it just hasn’t happened yet. This is why I love outfit sets, because you get three looks out of it! If the print is right, than get it! You won’t regret it, trust me.

Anyway, thank you all for stopping by today and spending some time with me. Love you all so much! Read More…

Hey friends! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I sure had an amazing weekend and wore this flowy, cheerful and bright little number. Clothing and accessories lined with pom pom’s and tassels are all the rage this spring and summer and the perfect combo for a fun spring look! These exciting trends are all over the magazines, stores, clothing and everywhere else that fits and I love it! It’s the fun girly side of me that loves it. Even though this year I’ve been digging the tassels trend a little more, last year, my summer obsession with pom-pom’s was real. Remember the gorgeous Pitusa.co kaftan I wore to Bimini??

I have already pulled it back out because first chance I get, it will come on and I’m not taking it off.

What are some trends you guys are digging this spring?

Hey friends! It’s been almost a week since we last met up here and that’s way too long. My website was hacked a few days ago and as DJ Khaled would say,  “They don’t want us to chat,” but it’s now back up and we’re gonna chat!

This ensemble is such a simple and easy look to pull off and I think we should all try it at least once. Years ago, I wouldn’t dare to leave the house dressed in an all white monochromatic look, now that I think back I really don’t know why I wouldn’t because I love the way it looks. So chic, clean, crisp, and of course feminine when a touch of blush is added. I picked up this vest at Zara a few months ago, and wore it here a few weeks ago by pairing it with a floral dress. Can’t decide which way I like it more so let’s get chatty and let me know which looks you are more keen towards. Sound off on the comments below. By the way, want to save some money when purchasing a Daniel Wellington watch than use coupon code “AFANCYAFFAIR” during checkout.
