Prints

Marble

We usually see marble stone on countertops in kitchens and bathrooms and don’t think twice about it (unless you are remodeling your house of course). But when interior decorating and fashion collide we are blessed with an amazing print: MARBLE! This week we are totally WAiSTEDD on marble print for accessories, jewelry, handbags, and apparel!
Bold, sophisticated, and delicate, this print is a great add for your Spring wardrobe. This neutral print can add a pop to any outfit, without overpowering. We think this print looks great next to any color, so it is a seamless add for your wardrobe.
If you aren’t ready to commit to this print, try it out on your nails first! Fashion blogger Aimee Song showed us on Instagram how trendy this print can be as nail art.
Do you think you will try this print for Spring? What marble printed piece will you add to your closet?
Happy Wednesday! Have a lovely rest of your week!

Cut It Out, WAiSTEDD

Lately Lauren and I have been really into easy casual looks- maybe its the warmer weather or maybe we will just always be California Cool at heart. I found this maxi dress when I was in LA last month and honestly I can not stop wearing it! The patterned detail on the skirt is so boho & coupled with the cut out black top its super chic and fun to wear. It’s also light and airy which is absolutely perfect for being casual.

I also found this necklace when I was in LA as well- while I was on Abbot Kinney I found Roya De Rose in a pop up shop. She has the most incredible hand made pieces. I can not say enough about them- seriously, click the link below and you will not be disappointed. She goes to a lot of events (at festivals etc), so be sure to check to see if she’s near your city soon!

Summer Florals

We can all appreciate a good print, and summer is the perfect time to show it off. Floral prints in particular have been popping up all over stores due to their whimsical and effortless nature. This is why we decided to feature them on this WAiSTEDD Wednesday.
Floral prints are found on everything and anything, not just maxi dresses. You can find shirts, shorts, rompers, pants, skirts, bag, etc etc. in floral prints this 2014 Summer season. When figuring out what is best for you, we suggest picking a piece that you feel comfortable wearing. Sometimes a loud print needs a bold attitude, so if you are going to be self-conscious in it, opt for a subtle pastel print. Also, if you are a little hesitant about a bold print, remember that you can match it back to a basic (white tee shirt or black tank top) to balance the outfit. Pair any outfit with a pair of neutral shoes, or a color that brings out one of the colors in your outfit for a little extra pop.
Throwing on a simple floral printed maxi dress (as seen in the pictures below) is a simple way to piece together a stunning outfit. Just throw on a denim jacket or sweater, and you are ready for a day to night look.
Summer is a time to have fun. Let your hair down and try out a floral print. We promise you will make such a statement and get so many compliments, as well as have a fun time wearing something a little sassy.

Sneakers

Shoes can be painful, but as women we suck it up and put on our highest heels to go out because they make us feel “sexy”. Have we ever thought why heels only make us feel this way? Why can’t other shoes give us the same empowerment?
We think we might have found the answer. Both comfortable, stylish, and easy to wear, slip-on sneakers are making a comeback in a big way, which is obviously why we are featuring them on WAiSTEDD Wednesday. First seen with the classic Vans (admit it you drew all over yours in high school too), slip on sneakers are possibly the easiest and most versatile shoe you can have in your closet. As they are gaining popularity, more and more versions on the slip on sneaker are appearing, making it easier to branch out and find a pair that you can kick it in.
Because these are such great shoes, it is up to you to decide what price range you are comfortable with or if a certain pair really “speaks” to you. If you are loving the gothic floral print and want to invest a little more into a high quality shoe, we suggest the Givenchy Skate Floral and Leather Print shoe. A great print multi-colored print on leather adds a little edge, but still is easy to pair. Do they remind you of a famous celebrity with the initials K.K.?
You can also find other prints and solids from brands such as Schutz, Steve Madden, and Sam Edelman. All within a similar price range, each brand offers a different take on the classic slip on. You can see the tongue shape of the shoe is different on each. Your preference might come down to which one aesthetically you like better, or which one is more comfortable. To counter the simple construction of these shoes, we suggest a loud print you can match with any outfit. Of course, one of our go tos is cheetah/leopard print because it basically can be called a neutral!
For any season, you can’t go wrong with slip-on sneakers!! Just really think which ones are the best fit for your closet. Let us know which ones you are completely WAiSTEDD on-we always are looking for a new pair!

Print Phobia

Print Phobia

A lot of women are intimidated by prints. Building an outfit around a print can occasionally be overwhelming. If you find yourself feeling this way, plaid prints can be an easy way to get over your fear. The great thing about plaid is it comes in a multitude of different shades and patterns- so you can start small and work your way up.

See above how Danielle mixed a simple black and white plaid pattern with a mustard velvet skirt. The plaid works well with this because neither of the pieces overpower the other. If the skirt was any brighter, we would have a bumble bee. Sting….

Accessorizing is always important- here Danielle went with simple black and gold to highlight the print.
