I joined the “Salonista Style” team a few weeks ago and was able to wear this AMAZINGLY flattering dress for the studio opening. What I love about it that it’s white, classy and sexy. The zippers in gold add interest in all the right places, enhancing the cut of the dress.
The Beauty comes in three colors- black, red and white, S/M/L and is $60. To see more fabulous dresses and more from the Salonista Style shop go to http://instagram.com/salonistastyle.

Every closet should be stocked with clothing staples and a few trendy items to ensure getting ready “made easy”, yet right. You don’t have to be a hot mess and throw on those yoga pants, jeans, or slacks with whatever top you have. If you have the right wardrobe essentials your outfits will look polished, sharp, smart and envy worthy. If you follow these clothing tips with your wardrobe then getting dressed will be fun and easy.
Fall into Winter clothing & accessories to have in your wardrobe:
Staples: Long sleeve shirts in black, white or gray & 1 pop of color, Black leggings, Skinny Jeans, Skinny gold or silver belt, Black printed or solid scarf, Tall leather boots, Trench coat, Wool coat, White button down, LBD, Black skirt, Tights & Undergarments (thongs & push ups), Sweater vest, Black blazer, Basic sweaters in cream, black or gray, Denim shirt and make sure you have different socks (thick, wool, thin, high, ankle).
Trends: Leather Biker Jacket, Shoe booties, Black & white striped clothing, Floral on black, Plaid anything, Metallic finishes, Leopard or Animal prints, Pastel jackets & sweaters, Studs & Spikes, Leather or Pleather pants, Leather details on shirts, Pencil skirts, Faux or Fur coats, Chain link jewelry, Cutout clothing, Army clothing, Lace pieces, Heel booties, Over the knee boots, Velvet clothing.
Clothing Tip: Keep your basics up to date-no fading, ironed & clean to wear all week and make sure you have plenty of clean undergarments and socks/tights on hand. Keep your handbags and footwear wiped down and clean. Jewelry should be organized and accessible to pile on.
How to wear your Basics and add your Trends: Dress yourself mostly with your basics and add a trendy item or two. Layering is the key to stylish dressing. Decide if you’re in the mood to wear pencil skirt, black leggings or skinny jeans then decide what to wear on the top. For example, if you go with a pencil skirt to be dressy, then go for a trendy blouse and decide if you’re going to layer your sweater vest, biker jacket, trench coat or black blazer on top. Now figure out your shoes…try on your options in front of a long mirror. Try the shoe booties, tall leather boots and heals to figure out which ones make the best looking outfit for the day. Lastly, spice up your look with accessories and trends…scarfs, jewelry, belts and handbags.
Remember getting dressed is all about layering. If your outfit isn’t right, then go back to your basic items and swap something out, for example if you’re wearing that pencil skirt and you like what it looks like, but is too dressy for the event your attending, then replace it for the back leggings or if really casual then put on your jeans. Or if you just have to wear the pencil skirt but need a more casual look, wear a long sleeve basic shirt then either add a sweater or skip the sweater and layer your sweater vest, biker jacket or trench coat with your scarf. If you have the right staples then making outfits is so easy.
My final advice on polishing your outfit for the day is to make sure your hair style and make up reflect and enhance your look. You don’t have to have the perfect face, but if you’re going for a natural look make sure you have the right make up to correctly achieve this look. With make up it all starts with the basics as well and layer to add different colors and make up trends to your look. Really it’s the same concept!
If you’re closet is organized by color then getting dressed can be a breeze!
If you don’t have the time to make your closet work for you, I have a service that may work for you.

I do love a good hat. This is a great hat that I picked up at a friends’ store. I’ve been waiting for the right time to wear it and decided to wear it on a rainy night!
Stick straight hair works best with a fedora hat
This hat is by “Glitzy Bella” and is has a feather, lace, chain, large rhinestones and a cameo broach all on t he side!
Price of my hat, $60
As you can see I paired up my fab hat with pleather leggings, a studded sleeveless shirt, rhinestone necklace and wedges. More is more with this look!
Denim jacket by DKNY Various necklaces piled up
‘Ardell’ Fashion Lashes
‘essie’ ‘good as gold’ and ‘Revlon’ ‘Hearts of Gold FX’ nail polish. Two coats of essie & several of ‘hearts of gold fx’ polish. I made sure no hearts got on as they are so big.
Shoes by Alfani. Antique pearl broach.
Instead of a belt, I wrapped ‘Bling’ around my waist, held together with my broach. ‘Bling’ also used on the center pieces at the event!
Affordable outfits can be created for events!
Once I was invited to the Denim & Dimonds Event I immediately started by outfit wheel.
I went to the Wear House and bought this fab skirt for $25!! I hit the Victoria Secret sale’s rack and found the bodysuit for $17. I knew I needed to cover up, so I dug out my oldie but goodie DKNY jean jacket. I picked up the peace clutch at Fashioneta for $30. My shoes came from Macy’s for $76. I piled on jewelry I already had and placed eye lashes on and painted my own nails. Makeup from Making Faces and hair compliments of Salon Sabeha. At the event, photos were taken by The Chick Who Clicks. Thank you for your wonderful support.
I am always impressed with people who can dress well, and I even get a little jealous when they have nailed down their own classic style. Working an out fit to get all the attention it needs takes a lot of thought, whether this is intentional or not. There are a lot of elements that line up perfectly when an outfit is stunning, like knowing what you want to wear, how to wear it and then, knowing the right place to wear it is the tricky part, but when those three magically happen~ that’s what I call a “stunner”. There usually is one person at every event I attend that I find to shine like a star. They just have their style down and the perfect place to go wearing it. You be the judge, but this gal, Isis is a “stunner” to me! So jealous of her effortless style. Here are a few of my favorite Isis looks! Notice how well she mixes inexpensive and affordable items to create her signature style!
