My Style: Velours Rouge


Today's Look:  was styled with one of the hottest trends in mind: 90's grunge.  First, I started with this stunning red crushed velvet dress from Immediate Fashion Company.  The ankle length hem and spaghetti straps reminded me so much of 1990's styling which totally called for platform sandals and a choker.  To update the staple pieces of the classic ensemble, I wore leather platforms with nice thick straps and a layered choker made of leather with a silver-plated, bedazzled bead; back in the '90s, platform flip flops and plastic chokers were all the rage.  I styled the dress, sandals, and necklace with a skull lace kimono, multiple rings, a silver cuff bracelet, and a jewelry hair clip from Floaters, which gave the look a slightly more bohemian vibe.  For any readers who may have missed my previous post featuring Immediate Fashion Company, they recently opened a new location at 2000 East Broadway Boulevard in Tucson, Arizona!  I definitely recommend giving them a look and anyone can shop their online store at http://www.immediatefashioncompany.com/.  Originally based in California, the store has such friendly customer service, kind owners, and darling clothes.   It's so exciting to see them expanding, and I can't wait to visit their Tucson store this summer!

Fashion Tip:  I was so excited to showcase my first Floaters's hair accessory in this post, because I truly think they are the new "it" accessory.  Anyone else remember when everyone came back to school after summer vacation with a feather weaved into their hair or the dyed neon color hair strip fad?  Well, Floaters are way better than both of those, because they can easily be clipped on or off of your hair, they come in all different designs and lengths, and they are beautiful jewelry.  If you want to start a new trend at your school or in your town, then get yours ASAP at http://www.hairfloaters.com/.







Last but not least, I tried something new this week!  To show you how Floaters's hair accessories work, I made a short video demonstrating how easy the hair jewelry can be clipped on and off.  It's a little over a minute, so short and sweet.  Check it out below :)
