Wedding Attire <3

My twin brother got married on Friday!!! It was the most beautiful wedding and amazing night ever! I couldn't be happier for him and his gorgeous wife.

I started planning what I was going to wear to his wedding over 6 months ago (I always plan my outfits well in advance) 
Fashion Nova dress

I bought 3 dresses for it! 

The first dress I bought was a beige Herve Leger bandage dress. $500 
(New with tags on eBay)

The second dress was a coral lace maxi dress from Jaide Clothing. I absolutely love this dress but they were sold out of small so I ordered a medium and intended on getting it taken in but I just ended up going with the third dress!  $149.99

The third was from Fashion Nova in size small which I ended up wearing! $34.99!! This one was my favorite and it was extremely inexpensive. It also comes in pink and black so I'll be ordering the black soon :) 
The only problem is that the beige is see through. I wore a slip with it so it wasn't too bad, especially considering the price.

I love wearing mermaid style dresses to weddings or any formal occasions! They are so flattering and really accentuate your curves! I wore a similar black mermaid style BCBG dress to my girlfriends wedding last summer. 

Let me know if you'd like to see more photos from the wedding and I'll post more :)

Love Nicole

Lustworthy Fashion Trends

I do apologize for the lack of posts lately, spring and summer are extremely busy for my work! I've had a request to do a blog post on what to wear to a wedding but I've been saving that post until my brothers wedding which is next weekend!!! So I'll be sharing what I wore and what dresses I find perfect for a wedding. I'm really excited about that post so I hope you will enjoy it too:)

Lets get back on topic! Lust worthy current fashion trends. These trends I've chosen all tie into each other in some way and are very versatile so each look can be worn with different colors, pieces etc. 
- ripped jeans 
- ripped jeans with casual t shirts & pointy toed stilettos or strappy sandals 
- pointy toed stilettos 
- strappy sandals
- body suits with jeans or skirts 
- neural colors. Whites & nudes/beige

Just to forewarn you, the majority of these photos are of Kim Kardashian.Personally, I'm a fan! Some women just hate the idea of Kim but lets be real here, she's KILLIN it in the fashion world recently and I'm loving every outfit! She's totally on point with every outfit and she's creating trends. Whether she's styling herself or using a stylist, it's working for her. 

Lets start off with the shoes. The classic pointy toed stiletto and strappy sandals are everywhere lately. These two pairs have pretty much been the only heels I've been wearing. I can't get enough! They suit literally any outfit and really make a statement. The black patent louboutin pigalles are around $700 & the beige saint Laurent's were $900 which is extremely expensive but the greatest part about these heels is they're a classic staple so pretty much every brand makes their own variation of them. Zara and Steve Madden make the same strappy sandals for a fraction of the cost while every other brand imaginable makes the pointy toed stiletto!

Nude & black with black pigalle stilettos.
Loving the nude and black with the lace up sandals. One of my favorite looks right now are of what Kim's wearing on top, either a body suit or a tight tank top tucked in to either jeans, shorts or skirts! 

Nude patent stilettos. 
Bodysuit with ripped jeans and stilettos. 

Nude theory silk tank, Aritzia jean shorts with saint laurent sandals

Hopefully you found this post inspiring for future outfits and new ideas next time you shop! I know for myself, these looks are exactly what I'd like to recreate and what I look for when shopping. I find when I know exactly what I want to buy, I never end up purchasing something I won't wear or that I'm over in a month or two.
