Floral for Days

Floor length floral...vintage!  Bright floral print is seen everywhere lately.  I just about died when I saw this maxi dress at my local vintage treasure chest.  Even though the sleeves were a bit baggy, I pushed them up my arm to keep the dress from looking like "little house on the prairie." Still in love with jeweled collar necklaces, I adore how it takes the dress to a new modern level.  It
lays so nicely on the high neck of the dress.  I kept the look edgy with chain-link bracelets and stacked them with a 'blinged-out' watch.  Then, ...the shoes, the shoes!  ...they are blue, suede, stacked heeled pumps to bring out the electric blue in the print.  If there is chance to wear a bright bold lip, I take it!!!!  I pulled out the bright orange colored flowers in the dress with a dark coral lipstick.

Why, hello, there...

Lina Alicia, here,...very nice to meet you.

Growing up in Los Angeles with a mother in the fashion industry, really primed a girl to love everything gorgeous!  Sharing afternoons flipping through fashion magazines, she showed me how style can be so liberating.  Shopping anywhere from Barney's New York to Marshalls, from the designer shops on Rodeo Drive to the boutiques of Pasadena, or from JCrew to vintage, she taught me that your style is your own priceless creation. 

I love to reclaim my fashion finds.  I covet my purchases, budget conscious and budget not-so-conscious.  It is hard to get rid of my pieces.  Bringing an older piece back to life by incorporating it for the trend-of-the moment makes me giddy.

Whether it is fashion, beauty, home, or entertaining, let's raise our eclectic glasses to bursts of beautiful.  We can be punch-drunk over style together!
