Trending: Daffodil

Trending: Daffodil by sandrarose featuring high rise shorts We all know that the universal color of the year is emerald. But there appears to be a more, playful color making it’s way through for spring. That color happens to be daffodil. I am such a huge fan of this color because adding just a small amount of it to any outfit can really make a vast difference. I usually like to pair mine with another bright color like coral or turquoise to truly stand out. But whichever way you decide to pair your daffodil with, you’re bound to look effortlessly chic!

Look for Less: Chloé RTW Fall 2013

Look for Less: Chloe RTW Fall 2013 by sandrarose featuring reluxe The brand Chloé happens to be my ultimate favorite brand of the moment. Their spring 2013 collection was beyond superb and they’re fall collection was no different. When I was looking through the fall RTW 2013 collection, my eyes were fixated on this one particular piece. Fun and playful are among the many aspects I love to incorporate into my wardrobe and this look does just that without crossing the sophistication border. I recreated this look by adding some subtle quintessential Gaiety Girl touches. I tried not to stray too far away from  the original look but be different at the same time. This gorgeous necklace I found on Topshop just had to be incorporated into the outfit as well as this spectacular Zara satchel for only $50. The entire look runs for about $470 which is such a bargain considering the blazer on the model is a whopping $1,819. All in all, I think I did pretty well wouldn’t you say? xxx Sandra 🙂

One Dress, Three Ways

One Dress, Three Ways by sandrarose featuring a woven leather belt When I first saw this incredibly chic dress in an issue of Vogue one day, I knew I just had to create an outfit from it. But we all know that I love doing things to the ultimate so rather than creating one outfit, I created three. The three of these outfits both represent my personal style, playful, casual and edgy. Playful-This pretty much represents my personality. I’m incredibly outgoing and bubbly and I just feel that this outfit calmly represents that without being too over  the top. The floral oxfords and golden belt are unexpected which goes perfectly with the neon dress. Casual-For this look, I thought I would incorporate the global trend by still remaining on the casual side. The necklace and purse add those little international touches and the wedges and fedora really make the outfit feel as if it’s meant for the day. I also like how the navy wedges mesh well with the neon. It really balances the look …

Essential Items For Every Girl’s Closet

Essential Items For Every Girl’s Closet by sandrarose featuring h&m blazer In order to start building your wardrobe, you’re going to need a couple of key ingredients to make that happen. Above are some of the most important items of them all. !.) Blazer-This item is a must. I cannot stress how important it is to have a blazer in your closet whether you work in an office or not. They’re essential and add complete sophistication to any outfit. Go for a more fitted style to accentuate your figure. If you’re a bit larger in size, go for a looser fit. I usually like both styles but fitted version is probably my favorite. 2.) Trench– Trench coats are another huge priority to invest in. They flatter any figure and are just a classic piece of clothing to have in your closet. 3.) Black Pumps– As much as I love flats, heels are a must every now and then. Pumps especially are a classy way to go and look instantly chic on anyone. When purchasing a pair of pumps, remember …
