Hi dolls!

I wore this outfit while I was in Tampa Florida meeting with the HSN buyers and what I loved about it is that it was sophisticated but also fun and trendy. Sometimes business looks can be boring and just blah but that’s what I loved about this look, it still was professional but with a little fun and fabulous mixed in!

My adorable ruffle top is from http://www.shopmurph.com and just for you guys, if you use my code Gretchen you can get a discount! Yeppiee!

My slacks are from http://www.houseofcb.com and they use some of the nicest and high quality materials in their pieces that make them last and last so it’s worth spending s little more on them.

My belt was from Bebe about a year ago.

And my studded Valentinos completed the look, which you can shop here http://shopstyle.it/l/d6mB

My sunnies are from http://www.diffeyewear.com and they have sooo many cute styles!

Because the look was so versatile I literally went straight from my meetings out to dinner that night for date night!

Hope this look helps inspire you to have fun with your look even in the boardroom!

Happy Monday Dolls!

I just loved this fun outfit I put together this weekend…it was super comfy but also hip and fun. It’s not that often that I am super casual because as you know I love a good fun flirty dress and heels, but every now and again I will throw on a good pair of jeans and a baseball cap.

I found this gorgeous embroidered jacket at Nordstrom and you can shop it right here yourself.  I loved the color and the details of this coat and I wore it with jeans this weekend but it will also look so cute over a little simple dress.

My tank top is from Wolford and this nude color literally goes with everything. The material is super soft and this is my go to tank for also everything in my closet. It can resonate pink sometimes which is great and nude when you need it to match with your nudes. Its very versatile and we all need a piece like that in our closets. You can shop this top right here

I love a good ball cap when I haven’t washed my hair in a minute and this one was the perfect color to tie in my look.  I love the soft suede like material that makes it more plush and dressier then just a regular baseball cap. Again this color goes with everything in your closet...you can find this hat right here

I thru on a light pair of jeans similar to these ones from Nordstrom  a pair of fun and funky heels from Steve Madden and my favorite little purse from BCBG

50 Shades of Pink and Red

 

unnamed-10

Thanks to everyone who posted such sweet comments on my social media pages about my look for our Girls Valentines Day at Dior in Beverly Hills.  My Dress is by an Australian Company called C/MEO Collective and unfortunately is sold out from what I can see, however  check out the other red options from this company right here…. or  click here for a version of my dress. Also here are some other great red options as well from Neiman Marcus 

My shoes are by the one and only Alexander McQueen but I got them a few years back.  I love them because they are a classic shoe that I pull out every once in a while to really make an outfit pop.  The skull heads on the front of them is not typically something I would wear, but they are so much fun and so different then what I usually do, so its fun every once it a while to change it up. I kept my earrings simple and just did some gold drop earrings by  Chanel  to help pull the gold embellishments in from my shoes.

Here are some more fun pics from my Girls Day at Dior. Just love all these fabulous ladies.

Also to Sunset Plaza Florist for the gorgeous flowers

My Hair was done by the one and only Victor Paul from the Victor Paul Salon and because I wanted my hair back due to the big side flare on my dress we decided to go with this super cool poofy braid look. I just love this unique fun look by VP.  Give him a call for all your hair needs and styles http://www.victorpaulsalon.co

Great V-Day Gift Ideas

vday-blog-post

Hi dolls! I absolutely love putting together gift guides. They’re so fun and remind me of how many amazing things are out there and ready to be gifted! Valentine’s Day is less than a week away so I came up with a few gift ideas for your girlfriend, mother,wife sister, or any other special lady in your life. Be sure to share this post with your special someone so they know where to find these great items. Enjoy! – G

I always love a bold lip and what better time for a little  Dior Couture Color Rogue Lipstick for that sexy red pop! You will most definitely be getting that kiss 😉 If you are going for more of a natural blush and lip color Benefit Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain is my go to. Speaking of lips has anyone tried Sugarfina Hey Hot Lips Gummies they are so yummy and make a super cute gift.  Viktor&Rolf Flowerbomb Collection is one of my favorite perfumes and what is better than getting the whole collection from someone you love?! (check out how cute the packaging is too for V-Day)

I kind of have an obsession with fabulous phone cases so the  Kate Spade New York Scattered Hearts iphone Case is no exception! It’s covered in little red hearts, some of which are bedazzled-my favorite! Since we are talking about hearts and Valentine’s day is all about those, the Saint Laurent Small Kate-Heart Calfskin Leather Wallet on a chain is beyond perfect for anyone looking for a hip statement piece. The Valentino Love Blade Embroidered Calfskin Leather Shoulder Bag is another to die for bag with some of the most adorable embellishments if you are looking to splurge 🙂

Dresses are always my go to for a night out and the  Alice & Olivia Belva Dress with belt is a style that I have been dying to try. If you are doing something a little more casual for love day the Alexander Mcqueen Skull Print Silk Scarf in Lilac/Red is a perfect accessory. Lastly, the Classic II Boot-UGG Australia slippers are a gift that everyone deserves and are perfect to start any day and end any night.

Or check out adorable pillow  below from http://www.shopgretchenchristine.com to show your love one exactly how you feel about them.
