BRAND FEATURE: SUGARLIPS APPAREL 

"Sugarlips Apparel, located in Los Angeles California, was founded by fashion enthusiast Charles Park in 2002. Sugarlips started with just a small line of sweaters and within a few years Sugarlips grew to be the largest manufacturer of seamless apparel in North America. Sugarlips has since then expanded its line and now produces fashionable contemporary clothing at affordable prices, which are available all over the world and carried by most major department stores, including Macys, Nordstrom's Dillard's, and many more.
Sugarlips has grown from the largest North American manufacturer of seamless apparel, to the fashion forward contemporary brand you see today. At Sugarlips our goal is to provide quality female fashion at affordable prices."
Sugarlips has a cute- trendy, modern to contemporary look to their garments, which can be worn by everyone! I love the fact that this blouse that I got is sheer on the top then it becomes opaque before it passes my chest. It's made of light material which makes it a great piece for the warm weather. This blouse is also very in fashion when it comes to it's style. Aside from the light fabric that's used, I also love the button up look that it has, because it makes the garment look very chic and sophisticated at the same time minimalistic.

FASHION FOCUS: HIGH-LOW HEM
Dresses, particularly maxi dresses with a high-low hem are a huge hit this season as well as previous seasons  because of its versatility. This dress that I'm wearing from LOVE is made of a very light chiffon-like fabric that makes it weather appropriate at the same time you could either dress it up or down depending on your mood or occasion. --From being beach chic to a nice sophisticated girls night out in the city chic. Either way, this dress will turn a few heads..like the saying, "business in the front, party in the back"...just the other way around for this one. 
So, in this outfit, I decided to go for a semi-casual / semi- glamorous look. I tried making the outfit less outlandish by throwing on a long thin cardigan with subtle neon accents to take away some of the "formal" feel to the look. I also paired some nice black booties with cheetah prints on the heel to make the look more fun and casual. Then I decided to wear some sheer black nylons just to kind of create an illusion of longer legs. As far as accessories goes, since I'm going for a less formal look, I opt for longer and layered necklaces rather than a choker or extremely bold statement pieces for the neck area. By doing so, it also gives the illusion of a much longer upper body because it automatically draws the eyes attention vertically as opposed to horizontally.

FASHION HIGHLIGHT: AN INVESTMENT PIECE
To start off, I admit that I am indeed a very frugal person. However, as we grow older we realize that fashion is not only about the bargain items that always turn out to be the "disposable" kind, but also about the investment pieces that takes time....well, to purchase. So, what would be considered an "investment piece," you might ask? well, stuff like premium denim...something that could be used and worn forever (unless you lose or gain weight...well, now that's another topic that we can save for another post) Another things also include designer brand items whether it'd be a handbag or footwear or even that really expensive little black dress that you never seem to find an occasion to wear but dying to do so anyway. But with kidding aside, I think investment pieces are these material items that we could seriously use over and over again. Needless of time, the "piece" will stay in good condition and then you'll be able to say that it was definitely worth the investment.

FASHION FOCUS: POP OF NEON
With all this pastel trending this season, we forget sometimes that neon colors are definitely coming back from the 80's. Now, this "trend" might be a little over the top for some people but having little neon accents never hurt anyone. In fact, little pops of neon in a person's outfit makes one appear more fun and a bit more daring than usual. As you could all see, my outfit already consists of too many colors, however, I decided to add my Yellow bolo cord bracelet that I got from Ettika to add a brighter and bolder accent to my outfit. This pop of neon, then becomes the statement piece to my look regardless of all the color craze that's already happening. Now regardless of whether this whole neon trend is for your or not, you should definitely give it a try because you don't necessarily need to get caught in a full neon gear, little pops of neon is all you need.

FASHION FOCUS: CAPES
Capes have been an ideal choice for outerwear this past F/W season as well as the year before. However, it should also be an essential part of your wardrobe for this winter- spring transitional weather as this time of year, the weather is more unpredictable than usual. Gusty winds, extremely cold mornings and warmer afternoons and who can forget, rain on a sunny day? Now, if that doesn't get on you on your toes, I sure a heck don't know what will. 
These capes are very easy to put on and take off, making them the perfect outerwear for this unpredictable transitional weather. 
Now, in this outfit, I decided to wear my Gossip Girl Fur Cloak (minus the faux fur collar that it came with it, obviously, it would be too hot if I wore it) that I received from Sheinside. I then decided to pair a rose colored button up top with a pair of forest green skinnies to add subtle pops of color without over doing or over powering each of the garment pieces. I finished off the look with a pair of laced up booties and a bag of choice, of which I decided to opt for a neutral colored bag that will not only compliment the boots but also the entire outfit. 
Now, with this crazy Northern California weather, having this cape around sure helps keep things together and in place. Not only that, but it also makes it equally chic for the purpose it does. This cape can be worn over skinny jeans or a little black dress, creating an effortlessly put together outfit that goes from day to night. It also features a detachable faux fur collar that can be put on for colder nights.

This Master Control dress from Black Pyramid is absolutely amazing. I love the iridescent quality of the fabric as it makes the garment change colors depending on lighting. In my case, the flash photography made the dress appear more of a metallic cobalt blue with a ton of sheen.
This dress features a wide neckline which emphasizes the woman's collar bone as well as gathered sleeves with a subtle poof. In this dress you would also notice the pleats on the bottom half, triangular mesh accents on the bodice, and a deep v-cut on the back side.

HOW TO STYLE:
- You can singe the waist with thick/ skinny elastic belt
- You can also wear long multi-stand necklaces
- You can wear opaque tights or even lace patterned stockings

FASHION FOCUS: GOLD ACCENTS 
Today's outfit is a little more simpler than my other usual outfits that I put together. In this look, I put on together a solid ivory button up underneath a salmon sleeveless button up blouse and layered the two for a bit of contrast in the color department. I then added some gold accessories like my gold metal choker that I've been loving lately as well as my fabulous thrifted gold belt to singe the waist. Now, when it comes to minimalist looks, I find it best to accessorize with huge statement pieces that will bring more life and extra oomph to your outfit. In my case, to add some color and texture, I decided to go with gold accents that will not only bring in more light to my outfit but also make it more sophisticated and put together. I also included a bright yellow brief case-like satchel as an extra pop of color to make the look more fun and casual at the same time.
