After postponing it for a few weeks I finally went dress shopping with my best friend who is also my Maid of Honor. I am so thankful to have her pushing me becuase it takes about 3 to 5 months to recieve your wedding dress once its been ordered. I had no idea but I'm glad I'm looking now with out being on a time crunch. We went to David's Bridal and I was so overwhelemed with all the dresses I had at my disposal. I figured out one thing very quickly, I don't want a white dress because it's almost too blinding for my eyes. I really like the look of ivory because it's very soft and pretty, plus you can't really tell it's not white until you put it next to a white dress. I was very drawn to off the shoulder dresses and my best friend suggested I go with a mermaid cut which flattered my figure perfectly. I did get a little discourged looking at the iPhone pictures we had taken earlier of all the wedding dresses because they didn't look as magnificent as they did in person. I am all about pictures so if it doesn't look great in a picture I don't want it. I will be going back to David's Bridal next week to make sure I look at every single dress before I make my decision. I would really love any advice from anyone who has already gone through this because I feel a little lost. I hope everyone has a great weekend!!

Dodger Game

Monday, July 14, 2014

Top: Fanzz (cute tops here and here) / Jeans: Levis / Heels: Shoemint / Bag: Louis Vuitton

This past weekend I spent all of my free time with my love. We decided to do something new and out of the ordinary which led us straight to the Dodger game. I broke the diet and had a famous Dodger dog which tasted like it was from my childhood elementray cafeteria. No bueno but it's all part of the experience. I couldn't complain because we had amazing seats, the sunset was beautiful and the moon was so magnificently large. I wore my new Shoemint platform heels with some comfy Levis jeans and a very appropriate LA Dodger top to support my team! Happy to report we won!! Hope everyone had an amazing weekend.

XO,
Shirley

I have always had insecurities over my legs and how much cellulite I have but this summer I'm letting it all hang out. I love these high waisted shorts because they keep your stomach from hanging out and they don't squeeze the fat out of your thighs. I know I'm not the only person living in their high waisted shorts this summer!! Can you believe I found the perfect pair of shorts at Forever 21 for $30 which is a great deal!! I wore this whole ensemble to Sea Side Lagoon for my friend's daughter's first birthday. This is why I wore the one piece bathing suit as a top and a light airy kimono over it to brighten up the whole look! I hope everyone is having a great week!! Hang on just a little bit longer because it's almost the weekend!!

Shirley

I gave the blog a little makeover and I'm so happy with the finished product. It looks so clean, simple and it highlights my love for fashion perfectly. Now you can find me at www.truehonestfashion.com! I am currently watching "Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta" and it's getting me so excited to go dress shopping. I will be stopping by David's Bridal sometime this week to see what my options are. I will tell you all about my experience next week!

If you couldn't tell by all of my fashion choices I love anything that puts your shoulders front and center. I think it's one of the most beautiful parts of a women! Today's top from Forever 21 definetley highlights my best asset. The color of the top is bold, bright and perfect for the summer. I paired it with some of my favorite Levis jeans to keep it more on the casual comfy side. The heels and the bag blended in perfectly. I hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend!

My best friend emailed me today about dress shopping for the wedding. She included some articles I must read before we go shopping because she doesn't want to be unprepared. Ha ha, she doesn't want to be unprepared what about me?!?! I really appreciate her pushing me to do these things because if it were up to me I would start shopping next year. I read a few interesting things like don't take your whole wedding party to go dress shopping because not everyone will agree on one dress (and god knows that's true). You should just take your maid of honor, mom, and maybe sister because they are some of the most important people in your life. They will be honest (painfully honest, sometimes) and will have your best interest at heart. The articles peaked my curiosity and pushed me to start my search for the perfect wedding dress, so naturally I go to David's Bridal. I found a few options I would like to see in person and to remember which ones I admired the most I pinned them to my Pinterest board. Side note, can I just say Pinterest is amazing and keeps me organized or so I think. Here I go into this dress shopping world with a few nuggets of wisdom, wish me luck!! This topic is a great segue into today's outfit the LWD (little white dress).

We always talk about the perfect little black dress (LBD) but I never hear anyone talk about the perfect little white dress (LWD). It's the forgotten essential piece to completing a fashionista's wardrobe, making summer much more stylish and perfect. I found this gem while shopping at Jcpenney (my favorite store, if you couldn't tell) and it originally had these ruffled straps which took away from its appeal. I almost didn't buy the dress, but then I decided to tuck the straps in and it did the trick don't you think? Sometimes you have to play around with clothes because you can transform anything from "not your style" to the piece you have been looking for all your life!! That's exactly what happened to me with this dress. I had been looking for a summery white off the shoulder dress for a few months with no luck but I fell more in love with the strapless look of this dress. I paired it with a gold belt and some beige colored heels to keep the focus on the dress. I felt a flower in the hair was a very appropriate accessory to add a dash of color. I'm going to try and bring this accessory back to life because it's always been one of my favorite trends. Yes that is the Queen Mary, in case you were wondering. TGIF!!!

Shirley
