Navy Maxi

Happy Friday!

As of late I’ve been so into Free People- I love their brand and how it has such a carefree spirit. I found this maxi on gilt  and I’m so glad I decided to purchase it. It has been perfect for spring and will transition great into Summer. My favorite part of this dress is absolutely and obviously the back- I love the openess and simplicity. The layers at the bottom of the dress create such an incredible shape for my shorter frame. My only complaint is that if you are a little bit busty, this type of top can be trouble some- I didn’t find it to be an issue but if you do, it is easy enough to layer with a fun lacy bralette (check out Victoria’s Secret).

Do you ever shop on flash sale websites such as Gilt.com or Hautelook.com? Lauren and I both really like them- I’ve found such amazing products for nearly half the price and it’s fantastic.

Have an amazing weekend!

Turtlenecks and Tunics

We cannot be the only ones that feel like life gets 10x more crazy after Halloween- we’re not sure if it’s the onset of the Holidays or just the fact we are in a coma from all the candy we ate during Halloween, but it’s been nonstop lately. Between work and school Lauren and I have had the most insane couple of weeks! Regardless, we are back from our small hiatus!

Last weekend, my Grandparents celebrated their 60th (yes, wow!) Wedding Anniversary and I wore this great tunic to their party. I love this tunic. Well really, I enjoy tunics in general which is a little ironic considering most tunics are basically a dress on me because I’m so short. This tunic, from Free People, is one of my favorites because it’s so lightweight- which makes it a perfect layering piece for winter and fall. Additionally, it has a great shape and I love the turtleneck detail as well (great neckline for chunky jewelry!).

Have a great week! XO Danielle & Lauren

P.S. It’s finally starting to feel like fall here in California… 🙂

Red October

Red October, WAiSTEDD

I have to say, for the longest time I wanted a pair of Red Octobers. I was willing to spend whatever for them. Alas, my bank account has not gotten any bigger nor have my other responsibilities gotten any smaller so I still do not have the Red Octobers. Luckily for me, however, I found these amazing Supras for the time being (I’m totally obsessed with a red shoe- such a pop. Even cooler that this is a sneaker!)

Red October, WAiSTEDD

This look is one of my favorite casual looks to wear- ripped denim, sneakers, a flannel and gold jewelry. I’m not sure why- but I am always drawn to this type of an edgier look which is very much inspired by the street style of last year. I am such a sneaker Fein (which many of you probably don’t know because I wear heels so often in our posts) and its great to play around with different casual looks and feel edgy. Lauren and I are so experimental in our fashion sense and love to play around with different looks- this was definitely one of those times. This isn’t a look I would wear all the time, but it’s fun to try on different looks that represent different facets of your personality (currently blasting Drake… hmmm…). We always. always. try and have fun with fashion- never take it too seriously! I mean really though, who wants to look the same all the time…..

Perfectly Plaid

Say whatever you want about Kim Kardashian (We probably say them too!), but the woman has a killer fashion game and we both love how she dresses perfectly for her curves! One of our favorite looks that Kim does over and over (and still manages to look fresh and flawless) is a tight skirt & bodysuit. Here, I tried recreating that look with this killer asymmetrical plaid skirt I bought from Elorie via Gilt.com. I love the black and white plaid & the ruffle asymmetrical detail. It takes the plaid from plain to edgy.

Another thing I really liked about this skirt was that it’s a piece I can wear to work and still look cute if I want to catch a drink after with the girls. I decided to wear my hair back and with simple jewelry so that the skirt was the main focus of my outfit. I paired the look with my snakeskin heels from Kelsi Dagger- I really love the contrast of texture & patterns.

Have any fun weekend plans?!? Enjoy. XO Danielle & Lauren

Asymmetry

Asymmetry, WAiSTEDDWhat a week it has been! Isn’t it funny how certain weeks can just fly while others seem never ending? The fun ones unfortunately are the ones that always go too quickly. Both of us had such a great week – literally we blinked and it’s already Sunday. Lauren celebrated her 23rd birthday last weekend along the coast and Danielle is returning from Stagecoach (country version of Coachella). We both had such an incredible week, it’s hard to believe its coming to an end!

Anyways- the topic we are discussing for this week is asymmetry- it’s a trend we are absolutely loving right now. Asymmetrical pieces are great to play with in an outfit and really can highlight your shape in different ways. Here, Danielle is wearing an asymmetrical skirt which hugs her curves in all the right places; paired with a body-con strapless top and a moto-jacket (LOVE THIS JACKET BTW) Danielle showcases the curves.  The slit hits above the knee, which is perfect for Danielle’s shorter frame… And we’re always for some Angelina Jolie slit action (um, we wish… Angie girl teach us your ways).

If you’re going out pair the skirt with some simple black heels, or if you’re like Danielle and love to be comfy wearing wedges or sneakers. If you’re in the thick of summer and want something simpler, pair an asymmetrical skirt with a body-con top, unique belt and and pair of simple sandals.

Asymmetrical pieces are EVERYWHERE right now- dresses, skirts, flowy shirts- how perfect are each of these pieces for summer?!?! Especially when you want something easy and breezy when you’re sweating up a storm. If you have a petite body type, make sure the flowy shirt or skirt isn’t all encompassing of your body, you’ll feel lost in it (no, seriously we call it the balloon effect). Try something more form fitting- you’ll actually be wearing clothes rather than swimming in them.

Side note: SERIOUSLY how cute is this necklace Lauren got me for my birthday?!? It’s from a vendor on Etsy called Layered and Long- Lauren had it engraved with W159- which stands for WAiSTEDD & our favorite numbers. She’s the best!!!!

Uniquely You Challenge via ModCloth


Hi Everyone! This week we are thrilled to be participating in ModCloth’s Uniquely You challenge- we were so honored to be picked by ModCloth to participate! We were chosen to style that gorgeous red polka dot swimsuit and pick 7 items or accessories to pair with the suit for the perfect beach day. This suit is amazing- we love that this suit is totally flattering for every figure! Head on over to Wanelo to check out the story we published and our collection entitled ” WAiSTEDD X ModCloth Uniquely You” for even more beach fun picks!

When we first saw this suit, we immediately thought of a vintage beach vibe- it’s very Marilyn! We love to combine vintage pieces with modern styles. It gives the look an unexpected freshness and uniqueness. We accessorized the suit with a fedora, wayfarers and sneakers because it provides relaxed, boho vibe which is absolutely perfect for a day near the ocean. The whole look is tied together through this gorgeous lace cover-up. Every beach day needs a great bag and we love the detailing on the black bag. It pairs perfectly with the clutch. The clutch is great to put inside your beach bag  to protect those items that you don’t want to have covered in sand! As many of our readers know, we LOVE our accessories. But for a perfect beach day, we love to keep it simple- how cute is that gold globe inspired necklace…

We love to plan our outfits all the time, but especially when it starts getting warmer and when we have the opportunity to head over to the beach! ModCloth makes it so easy to prepare for beach weather with amazing swimsuits- we love them all! Below are the links to a few more of our favorite suits:

Seaside Radiance One piece

Concert on the Shore One piece

Splashes of Style Two piece

Keepin’ It Pool Two piece

WAiSTEDD X ModClothThere are so many great pieces available at ModCloth, especially for the upcoming warmer weather (beach time and festival time!!) Be sure to check out their website (pssst… they’re having a sale right now)!!!
