Lust’n For Sally LaPointe Pre-Fall 2017

overview

Favorite looks from the collection

The first time Sally LaPointe was brought to my attention was when the fashion and lifestyle influencer, Daniella of @weworewhat, posted up a deliciously elegant metallic motto leather jacket on her Instagram for a little #fashioninspo. As I decided to skim through Sally LePointes Pre-Fall 2017 collection, which hits stores in June, I noticed a range of styles from simple polished silhouettes to sporty with a touch of athleisure without going over board (hello #minimalism lol). Most of her pieces have trims of fox fur from Finland, albeit, I’m pro faux fur but my goodness, does it look so luxurious as it juxtaposes the easy and comfort of a boxy silk cashmere hoodie.

It immediately answered my need and desire for items that look one of a kind with elements of luxuriousness and casualness, finding this balance could be really tricky, especially with the abundance of designers in the fashion industry. As I was reading through an interview the designer did for Fashionista.com, she describes her line as being “Powerfully feminine. Tough and elegant — again kind of that fine line thing.”

Yes, yes, yes & I couldn’t agree more. Here are some of my favorite complete looks from her collection for Pre-Fall 2017 that I’m currently lusting over. Also, some key pieces that I would love to rework with other items for a cool #ootd for a Brooklyn gal. She’s one designer who I’ll be definitely looking towards as a source of  fashion inspiration for the exciting new year ahead because of her unparalleled eye for design and I hope you will too!

These boots were a major throwback for me…

#fbf lol circa 2007’ish (?)

These boots were my first major purchase as a teen. I felt so grown and awesome because, at the time, I hadn’t seen many people wearing Moccasins.

At one point, I got really tired of these knee high boots and tucked them nicely away for a long time in a corner of my closet. Lately, the weather has been warm for this holiday season, when it should be well below the 50’s F. Sneakers leave me too exposed to the cool air but winter boots are heavy and hot. I decided to revive these boots since they’re extremely comfortable yet warm, albeit, don’t look it. The fringe is a classic touch of charm without looking over produced. The Forever 21 mini knit dress has a geometric pattern that gives like an overall, fifty shades of blue, bohemian look. I loved how round and perky my belly looked through this dress. Thank goodness for knit & spandex cause maternity clothes looks horrible on my petite body.

Prego Skeletal Halloween x Withdrawals

The best part about Halloween is the drama that bubbles up through the creativity and energy of those ready to recreate something that was once memorable and sometimes a bit ironic. the drama that you anticipate. October has a bit of bewilderment, something  that the rest of the 11 months lack.

Well seeing how I’m only going to have this pregnant-halloween experience once or atleast not for a long time after (unless 10 years down the line fate interferes lol you know what I mean ladies) I wanted to make the best of it by dress up! I made it myself or rather customized it myself. I already had a bunch of school items laying around and needed a clever reason to put them into good use. I paired a solid black, steve-jobey, Zara turtle neck knit shirt with some Walmart pregnancy leggings (that are serious lifesavers!). Then drew out the shape of the rib cage and the skeletal fetus. Added some fabric glue and some white thread, then I was done. An awesome, inexpensive Halloween costume inspired by Pinterest! lol

La mejor parte de Halloween es el drama que se burbujea a través de la creatividad y la energía de aquellos dispuestos a recrear algo que fue una vez memorable ya veces un poco irónico. El drama que usted anticipa. Octubre tiene un poco de desconcierto, algo que el resto de los 11 meses carecen.

Bueno, viendo cómo voy a tener esta experiencia embarazada de halloween una vez o por lo menos no por mucho tiempo después (a menos que 10 años por la línea de destino interfiere lol usted sabe lo que quiero decir señoras) Quería hacer lo mejor de él por ¡vestirse! Lo hice yo mismo o más bien lo personalizé yo mismo. Yo ya tenía un montón de artículos de la escuela por ahí y necesitaba una razón inteligente para ponerlos en buen uso. Me emparejé un sólido negro, steve-jobey, Zara tortuga cuello camisa de punto con algunas polainas de embarazo de Walmart (que son lifesavers graves!). Luego dibujó la forma de la caja torácica y el feto esquelético. Agregado un pegamento de tela y un poco de hilo blanco, entonces yo estaba hecho. ¡Un traje impresionante, barato de Halloween inspirado por Pinterest! lo

Potters Clay Color Block

For this nail design update, I really wanted to incorporate a autumn feel by using this clayish shade. When I saw the color, it instantly reminded me of one of the many Pantone colors for Fall 2016 that I wrote a post about a few weeks ago, which called the color Potters Clay for the russet orange undertone. This one in particular is called Brick House by Deborah Lippman lacquer. My favorite part about the Deborah Lippman lacquer is that it retains an impeccable shine without having to add layers of shine coating to finish it. Using the instagram image as inspiration, I colored blocked the Brick House with the pale white by Wet n Wild called Break The Ice, to represent the changing season! Nothing like a high and low mix to create something amazing. I hope you enjoy & let me know what you think of this design in the comments below!
