How would you wear this RED Valentino Floral-print taffeta dress?

Olivia Palermo is gorgeous. That picture of her is over a year old. She's still super gorgeous though and always highly visible. She's something of a fashion icon.The Valentino dress is like seasons old and probably can't be found anywhere at this point.

Natasha Ndlovu wearing a white blouse with black skinny jeans

I really love Natasha N's style. And she's so beautiful. She always looks fantastic. Those are some super high heels though. I probably couldn't manage them myself but I'm sure she can strut like a pro in them being a model. The tan suede bag is an interesting choice. I wouldn't have thought to pick a tan suede bag; but I love how it works with the look. The jeans are from net-a-porter. Acne Studios Pin high-rise skinny jeans. They cost $220. I can't shop net-a-porter. They have to be holding 95% off sales. Unfortunately Natasha's website is down right this very minute so I can't find out about her shoes and her blouse because she didn't put that info on her lookbook page. The hate is from Maison Michel Virginie Bordeaux - Felt hat with fringed band. It costs 490 euros. Don't know about the bag either, or Natasha's rings.

How to wear brown ankle boots with a grey knit dress

Model and fashion blogger Emma Jane Menteath poses on the Brooklyn bridge in a gray knit dress which she wore with brown ankle boots, a hat from topshop and a bag from Adriaan Kuiters.
Emma blogs via I like how comfortable this outfit looks. I used to have a similar dress and it was so nice and comfortable and one of my favorite dresses. I loved how I looked and felt in it. I could wear it loose or wear a hip belt or even belt it at the waist. I love the choice of ankle boots here. I agree with what Emma writes in her post "every girl should own a brown and a black pair of ankle boots.(link)". I don't have any brown ones right now. I have about 3 black ones.

Topshop white Seam Structured Raw Edge Dress

This is just as simply beautiful as it gets. The model is Natasha N. She's a blogger from London United Kingdom. Her blog can be found at
You can't see the feet part of the outfit, but Natasha is wearing white canvas sneakers. So simple. Just a perfect little white dress with white canvas sneakers and black sunglasses. The dress is from Topshop, described as a white "Seam Structured Raw Edge Dress" and further described"
Cut a figure in this structured seam detail dress, cut with a flippy skirt and raw edges. Fitted to the waist and features zip fastening to the back. Pair it with super high heels to complete. 93% Polyester, 7% Elastane. Machine washable.

How to wear sneakers with a dress

Sometimes I see pictures of models wearing sneakers with dresses and I think to myself "Really?" I'm all for wearing whatever you want and tossing out fashion rules so I try not to question people's choices in fashion. But I'm not digging the sneakers with a cocktail dress idea quite yet. This sneakers with a dress look from blogger Tia Newton is one I can definitely get behind though. This to me is how to wear sneakers with a dress. Tia is wearing a pair of Converse Chucks with a casual little black dress from ASOS. I love that her only accessory is a pair of black sunglasses. Laid back, casual, cool and still very stylish. You can see more pics of her in this outfit on her blog

Hot pink formal joggers black bandeau top blush nude blazer nude heels

This is a cute outfit. The name of the girl in the picture is Anna Puzova. She is a blogger and a fashion business expert from Latvia. She's wearing an H&M blazer, hot pink TOPSHOP formal joggers, nude Zara court shoes with asymmetric strap, sunglasses from H&M, Gogo Philip chain necklace, H&M bracelet, New Look crossbody bag. It's a gorgeous outfit and I love how she matches the shade of her lipstick to the color of the pants. Everything blends and matches really nicely. The lipstick to the pants. The bag to the shoes. The jacket to everything. And of course black always goes with everything. Really especially love love the Zara shoes--the asymmetric strap. You can see more pictures of Anna in this outfit on her blog

Sheinside yellow dress Massimo Dutti bag

This is Marianela Yanes from Spain. She's wearing a yellow dress from SheInside. The dress looks very nice on her. Her statement necklace is interesting by itself but I'm not 100% sure I love it with the dress. I think this dress is so lovely by itself it probably doesn't need a necklace to accessorize it. Maybe some stacks of bracelets or a nice cuff bracelet since the dress is short sleeved. I do like the color of the Massimo Dutti bag she's carrying and the style is also interesting although I would probably have chosen a different style of bag if I was wearing the dress; but this bag works still. The sandals are nice also.

White dress accessorized with black hat black handbag black calf high gladiator sandals

This is Camille Co. She's very popular on the internet as a fashion blogger. Her website is at ITSCAMILLECO.COM . She's from Manila, Philippines. She's very fashionable. I love this outfit she's wearing. I love the dress and how she has kept everything so simple and yet made it very interesting with the pieces she has chosen to accentuate the dress. I love the hat. It's so cute. And the gladiator sandals are perfect. And her jewelry is perfect and so is the bag. The dress is actually this romper from Sheinside. I probably wouldn't wear it only because it appears to be see through. Although it doesn't really look see-through on Camille. It looks see through on the model on the Sheinside website. I'm not really into the see through clothes. I don't really get why everything has to be see-through. You can see more pics of Camille touring South Korea in this outfit on her blog here

Black and white print t-shirt top with white shorts and blue shoes

I like this combination of black and white print top with white shorts. The blue shoes are interesting but I would probably go with some black strappy sandals for this outfit. Not the dressy kind of sandals. Nothing with pointy heels. Something with a block heel and a wide strap at the front and ankle strap. Or better yet I think maybe flat sandals. This is Kamila Libelula who is a 29 year old from from Poznan, Poland. She reminds me a little of Mischa Barton. I like her style because it's simple and casual. Here's another look of hers that I like
Here she's wearing blue denim shorts with a white top and a pink blazer. The shoes and bag and sunglasses are all black and go with the outfit very well.

Blue and white striped top with blue shorts

I think this is a nice outfit for if you are a little bit older or if you're a little younger but going for a little bit more of a mature look. This is Midheta Agic who is a 24 year old Fashion Blogger from Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. She blogs at Her look features a blue and white striped sweater from United Colors of Benetton paired with blue shorts from United Colors of Benetton. The bag is also from United Colors of Benetton and the heels are from Zara. I would wear this look.

White top and white orange print shorts with wide brimmed orange straw sun hat and sandals

Here is Olga Choi again, the photographer and "mountain discoverer" from South Korea. Here she is wearing a really nice summery outfit with a nice white top from OASAP, and a pair of shorts from CHIC WISH. The top actually comes in a lot of other nice colors like blue and blush and hot pink and orange, royal blue and yellow and black. It's a polyester blouse featuring a back bowknot design. It's open back with a boat neckline. It has long sleeves with elasticized cuffs. You can buy it from OASAP for about $20 The shorts are white with an orange print design on the front part only. I couldn't find them on CHIC WISH so I guess maybe they're sold out or something right now. The hat is really cute. I really love the hat. It looks great on Olga. It's from Zappos. It costs about $36 (link to hat). It comes in colors like pink and brown and yellow and blue and tan. The sunglasses are from ZeroUV and cost about ten bucks. The bag is from Nine West. I'm not sure where the sandals are from. They are thong sandals though so any whit thong sandals would still work the same. Olga's sandals look like they might have rhinestones or something like that on them.

White dress from Sammydress with tan Rebecca Minkoff bag

This is Olga Choi. She's from South Korea. She's a photographer and she's on She's got great style. I love this whole look she's put together. The dress is very nice and I love the bag and sandals and sunglasses. The drsss is from Sammydress Dress. It only costs just over $13. It's the Long Sleeves Scoop Neck Solid Color Simple Style Polyester Maxi Dress For Women. You can get a lot of great dresses at Sammy dress for cheap. The bag is a Rebecca Minkoff Bag. Zero Uv Sunglasses, Anna Xi Sandals, Choies Belt, Michael Kors Watch. Great look. I'd definitely wear this myself if I didn't have a little bit of a belly. I don't think it would work that well if you don't have a very flat stomach. It looks like it's fitted at the waist even without a belt so that means it would emphasize your stomach and you know what they say, only accentuate the positive. Don't wear things that put your flaws at the forefront of everything. Dress to minimize your flaws and emphasize your good points.
