Trend Alert: Lingerie Inspired Pieces


Wearing lingerie inspired pieces – or straight up lingerie – incorporated in your outfit – is one of the sexiest trends right now. While there are many ways to wear lingerie in public, check out three ways you can rock the daring pieces while still looking chic, elegant but oh so sexy!

Bodysuit and Jeans

This look is for bold women out there! Khloe Kardashian chose a Gooseberry Intimates bodysuit (you can purchase the exact black one she wears here and the exact white one here for $139) with skinny jeans. The one-piece hugs her curves perfectly while the denim makes the look daytime appropriate and effortlessly cool. She wore the black bodysuit with distressed denim from her Good American jean line, layers of chokers and brown lip liner.



Khloe wore the white bodysuit (link to purchase here) by Gooseberry Intimates with light wash denim bottoms and a matching jacket, adding white mules and large black sunglasses. The pink lipstick is the perfect color for this look – it breaks up all the white and blue.



Lacy Dress X Jacket

Kim Kardashian wore a lingerie inspired dress during Paris Fashion Week. The brunette paired the white number with a matching hued silky jacket that she left off one shoulder. She cinched the outfit with a corset-style belt and added layers of gold jewelry.


Kim wore another lingerie inspired look, this time a silky black dress with lace trim. You can buy this exact piece from MyStyleMode for only $59.99. She added a sporty oversized jacket with strappy heels and oversized sunglasses. Make sure to pull your hair back into a ponytail like Kim and don’t wear any earrings or necklaces.


Lace Bralette X Lace Shirt

Taylor Hill wore a black bra with a sheer lacy white shirt on top. To balance out the see-through pieces, Taylor wore a black mini skirt. The top is long sleeved yet sheer- so you still show some skin without it being too much. The skirt is a great piece to wear with this look because it covers up your stomach while still showing off your legs.


Model Style: 6 Style Tricks From Taylor Hill



Taylor Hill has such a great sense of style- she always looks so cool and effortless while out and about. The 20-year-old Victoria’s Secret Angel has been a fixture on runways for years now. Keep reading to find out six style tricks from the stunning and ever so fashionable Taylor Hill.

1.White X Plaid X Lace

The stunner knows how to layer pieces that give off that effortless cool girl vibe. She chose a black bralette, adding a white dress on top with a plaid flannel tied around her waist.  Taylor finished off her look with a red bandana tied around her neck like a choker and a black cross body bag. This is an easy look to recreate this summer – it’s sexy but it doesn’t look like you tried hard. I love the look with a top knot- it just adds to that effortless vibe. Finish it off with combat boots for the perfect festival inspired ensemble.

2. Graphic Tee X Blush

Taylor kept it casual in a graphic T-shirt, which she opted to tuck into a blush hued skirt. The skirt and shirt really balance each other well. Make sure to tuck your shirt into your skirt like Taylor – it makes it look very put together. I love the pink color-it’s so summer casual and it can be re-worn in many different ways. Pull you hair into a high ponytail and keep your makeup minimal for a nice casual daytime ensemble.

3. Bodysuit X Skirt X Choker

Taylor looked amazing in a black bodysuit with a a white denim skirt, adding a choker and sneakers. Its sexy but still daytime appropriate. Pull you hair into a top knot like Taylor and keep your makeup on the lighter side – lipgloss, defined brows and a touch of eye shadow.

She’s wearing a Flynn Skye bodysuit, which is available here for $97.


4. Flannel X Jeans

This next look is a very easy to recreate for a casual day out. Ripped jeans with a fitted white tank is a simple combo, but Taylor upped the look with a blue and white flannel shirt, a bandana as a choker and a baseball cap. She added nude shoes to break up the blue tones. The choker and hat are great touches to such a casual ensemble-it adds that needs oomph.


5. Camo X Ripped Jeans X Red

Taylor looked flawless in ripped cropped jeans with a matching white crop camisole, layering a knotted camouflage shirt on top.  The key to this look is layers. The hint of the camisole breaks up the patterned top perfectly. To add a pop of color, make sure to grab a bold hued purse — Taylor chose a red Saint Laurent bag. To finish it off, she added a black belt and white slip-on sandals. Pull her hair up in a top knot and keep your makeup neutral like Taylor.


6. Sheer Black X White 

This next look is so sultry but still so classy. Taylor wore high waisted underwear with a sheer black skirt, pairing it with a sheer top. She wore the braless top with a strategically placed white cardigan that she tied into a knot. The result is a daring but modern twist on an evening look. Taylor styled her brunette tresses with voluminous curls and rocked smokey brown eye makeup and pink lips.

Hair Inspired: Taylor Hill’s Half Top Knot


The gorgeous Taylor Hill shows us the best hairdo: the half top knot!  If you’re like me and you don’t like having your hair all the way down, then this is the perfect hairdo for you!

You simply pull back a portion of the top of your head, making sure to leave the sides loose, and twist the potion into a bun.  It’s definitely a nod to the 1990’s grunge era–relaxed but still casual cool.  I’ve seen a lot of bloggers wear this look, because it’s really flattering and so simple.  Make sure to keep it all a little messy–have a few flyaways and stray pieces, so it looks more worn in.  Check out Taylor Hill’s half top knot below!

The Must Have Lip Look For Fall/Winter!


When I fall in love with a certain makeup look, I absolutely become obsessed.  In this case, my newest obsession is…vampy lips.  Some people call the shade oxblood, burgundy, cognac, etc…I just like to call it vampy because it can be many different shades: dark red, dark brown, and dark purple lips.  I like the dark red/purple and the red/brown shades as well as the red/black too. Here are several different dark lip colors I saw and fell in love with:

If I had to choose my favorite shade based on these photos, I think it would be the dark red lip look on Taylor Hill (photo is second from last).  Which of these vampy lip look is your favorite?

I haven’t purchased one yet but here are the brands/colors I’ve been eyeing to find the perfect dark red vampy lipliner/lipstick:

-Nars Audacious Lipstick in Charlotte (oxblood burgundy) and Bette (bordeaux)

-MAC Lipstick Diva

-MAC Lipliner in Currant

-Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip Waterproof Lipliner Pencil in 9C (burgundy) or 11 C (dark plum burgundy)

-Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (OCC) Lip Tar – Matte: Black Dahlia, Vintage, Anita

I’m leaning toward the OCC lip tars because the colors are gorgeous and they are vegan/cruelty free!  I think I will also purchase the anti-feathering white lip liner they sell too to as the base of the lip tar.  As a note, you apply the lip tar with a brush, which they provide when you buy the product. The lip tar starts off as liquid and then dries on your lips and become matte.
