Lace Up Accents and Show Stopping with Tobi

Today’s Look

Better Off Lace Up Shift Dress

The Lace Up Trend

To be honest, my first lace up piece was kind of a disaster. You see, after going through two pregnancies, plus breastfeeding for a year with both girls, I’ve actually been pretty self-conscious about showing any skin in that area. Over my Christmas break, I blogged about finding a one stop shop for show Blogger Sasha Agent lace up shift dressstopping dresses. For some reason I felt compelled to try out a front lace up dress. I couldn’t resist just how stunning it was, and just hoped that the lace didn’t run too low. Once I tried it on, I was so happy I took a chance. Just like I hoped, the lace didn’t run low, so I didn’t have to worry about being self-conscious–especially because I could still get away with wearing a supportive bra.

How to Rock the Lace Up Dress

Today’s Tobi dress, the ‘Better Off Lace Up Shift Dress,’ is that perfect date night, or dinner dress if a girl wants to stand out of the crowd a bit. It comes in three colors, a mauve–which is what I have featured here today, but it also comes in classic black, and a beautiful olive green. As far as shoes, you have tons of options. A strappy or even simple heel would really make this dress pop, but lately I can’t get enough of my over the knee tan boots which not only look amazing with almost everything, but they also keep my legs warm in the cold.

Tobi, All About the Glam

Last week I introduced an online retailer by the name of Tobi to my blog. From the moment you click on their site, you’ll see that this brand has glamour written all over them! With each piece, I findBlogger Sasha Agent lace up shift dress something very unique. Like stated on my last Tobi post, their designs take place in the heart of Los Angeles. They take inspiration from the LA city life, and channel them into beautiful and affordable clothing. “We design and develop all of our products and collections out of our headquarters in downtown Los Angeles. Our design inspiration is LA itself; the girls, the city, the energy, the attitude.” (Tobi.com).

Winter Florals and A Kimono Dream with Pink Blush

blogger sasha agent kimono in the winterCan’t Get Enough

Pretty much exactly a year ago, I got the opportunity to blog about beautiful clothing from a company known as Pink Blush. This online retailer started off selling trendy maternity wear, but quickly began incorporating clothing for all women. I absolutely loved the pieces that I received last year, but this year, this company has really kept up with the latest trends–also keeping prego mamas like me in the loop!

blogger sasha agent kimono in the winterQuick Recap

Pink Blush has incredible style for all women, but  they also have an amazing Pink Blush Maternity line where even expecting mamas can find affordable and trendy maternity clothes. Rather than being forced to pay a pretty penny for very plain or just down right ugly maternity clothingPink Blush sells cute maternity clothes that are also available in regular sizes for non-pregnant women. So clearly they’re all about the mamas–however, also catering to your everyday woman.

Today’s look has to be one of my faves of all time! You all know I love my flowy and bohemian looks. Throw some florals in that mix and I’m sold! However, I wasn’t sure how I could rock my new Mauve Floral Chiffon Maternity Kimono winter style. As I tested out some looks, I found my two favorite thermals with embellished sleeves, giving them that whole boho feel. I simply layered my kimono with my bohemian thermal, my favorite denim and rustic boots. My first look was more of a street bohemian look with ripped denim and black accents. My second look was a bit more of a softer look. I chose a pale pink colored embellished thermal and paired it with blue denim and my favorite over the knee riding boots. So basically, the key to rockin’ the kimono in the winter is layering–especially with the knits!

Hoping you all had a fabulous New Year’s Day! As for me, back to the grind tomorrow–back to work and prepping life for our new little addition. I’ll be updating you all with a new baby bumpdate here soon!

On NYE Occasions and Simplicity with Tobi

Today’s Looks Plus NYE Looks!

DEEP IN MY DAYDREAMS SHIFT DRESS IN MAUVE

SOULMATE MAXI DRESS IN LAVENDER

PARTY DRESSES

A Night Out On The Town

This New Year’s Eve I’ll be hittin’ the town date night style with the hubs. I was searching for something semi-formal’ish–definitely suitable for a low-key party atmosphere, and it had to be something soft and simple. Oh, and one more requirement, I for sure wanted something affordable, where I wasn’t having to splurge on a one time purchase.

New Discovery

Along my journey of searching for the perfect NYE attire, I discovered a glamorous, yet affordable company known as, Tobi. Talk about glam, this brand has glamour written all over them! With each piece, I find something very unique. Tobi designs take place in the heart of Los Angeles. They take inspiration from the LA city life, and channel them into beautiful and affordable clothing. “We design and develop all of our products and collections out of our headquarters in downtown Los Angeles. Our design inspiration is LA itself; the girls, the city, the energy, the attitude.” (Tobi.com). To me, this was the exact scene I was looking for! Looks like this Cali turned Texas girl is going back to her California roots!

You tell me, my first option is a sweet little number. A mauve shift dress, but almost nude dress, is gorgeous! Elegant because of its beautiful front crisscross strap design, yet simple because of its more casual fabric and cut. It was like love at first sight with this beauty. It could easily be paired with strappy nude heels, or with over the knee nude boots for more of a casual and fun party scene. My next option is a lavender open back maxi gown. Another simple beauty, but again, elegant because of its open back, unique halter, and over the shoulder crisscross straps . The maxi design makes this dress more suited for a beautiful candlelight dinner in a more formal and relaxed scene.

Hmm… choices, choices. I guess it all depends on where the hubs and I ultimately choose. Clearly, I don’t need to be hitting up the party scene in my pregnant state–ha! So I guess this img_0693mama will be bringin’ in the New Year over a four course meal and sparkling apple cider! Sounds like dress number two is the winner!

It’s not too late to take advantage of quick shipping for your Tobi NYE night out on the town. Also, if you’re needing to find something for that special party scene or occasion–this online retailer just may be your one stop shop! Plus, you’ll about faint once you see the prices! For the design and fabric, I would never believe how affordable these pieces are!

Wishing everyone a fierce and fabulous NYE!

Make a Statement with 7 Charming Sisters

Blogger Sasha Agent wearing bohemian statement necklaceToday’s accessories were provided by and received free of purchase by 7 Charming Sisters, however, all opinions remain my own.

Blogger Sasha Agent wearing bohemian statement earringsThe Strongest Statement

Sometimes the greatest statement a girl can make is through her jewelry. I personally LOVE making statements through gorgeous necklaces and earrings–especially if they’re bohemian style pieces.

So Many Charming Charms

Recently, I’ve connected with an amazing company, 7 Charming Sisters. Known for their gorgeous variety of statement jewelry, this company has hundreds of pieces that are fit for any style (see all of their styles here). Their 7 looks are reflections of the “work sisters” who’ve been partners for years. The sisters are: Paula, the elegant Classy Chick, Kim, the vivacious Life of the Party, Jennifer, the dedicated Fashionista, Donalda, the flirtatious Social Butterfly, Jessica, the smart and Sexy Nerd, Kimberly, the cute Girl Next Door and Melissa, the sporty Super Mom. They’ve got everything from casual bohemian, to even formal occasion accessories–sort of your one stop shop. Pretty much whatever you need or want, they’ve got it! What is even more amazing, their purpose and who they provide opportunities for. 7 Charming Sisters is committed to providing jobs for individuals with disabilities–and as a middle school special education teacher, this literally is music to my ears.

Rich in Bohemian Coins

Today, I’m wearing two pieces by 7 Charming Sisters–the Nomadic Necessity Necklace and their Live in the Moment Earrings. Both pieces definitely haveBlogger Sasha Agent wearing bohemian statement earrings boho vibes, which was why I paired them with today’s flowy look. Not to worry, I will feature this OOTD later on the blog. The coin details on both pieces add very unique and rustic charm. You can easily accent these pieces with either a flowy maxi dress, or even denim and a bohemian top.

Below, check out my gorgeous pieces here and here, as well as a great go to source for last-minute NYE finds here!

The Perfect Occasion Dresses for a Perfect New Year

Blogger Sasha Agent wearing New Year statement dress

Blogger Sasha Agent wearing New Year statement dress2017… Wait, What?!

I absolutely cannot believe how quickly this year is passing by; 2017 is literally almost here, and other than my wardrobe–I’m not ready. However, I don’t know if I’m ever ready really. And this year specifically (with this surprise pregnancy and all) I’m caught even more off guard due to fatigue and your typical pregnancy forgetfulness.

Blogger Sasha Agent wearing New Year statement dressNew Year Statements

This year I had two specific requirements when it came to selecting dresses and bringing in the new year–comfortable and dramatic. We always want to make a bold statement for our special occasions, but it’s very difficult to make a statement all while feeling comfortable. Even with taking the pregnancy factor out of the equation, it’s mainly important for me to be comfortable because it’s usually freezing in Dallas at this time. So basically, If I’m cold, I’m usually not a very happy person.

Blogger Sasha Agent wearing New Year statement dressBringin’ in the New Year with Zappos

There are two amazing brands sold through ZapposBrigitte Bailey and Culture Phit. Both of these brands do an amazing job with creating clothes that make a statement and also take comfort into account. I paired both looks with the same shoes, over the knee boots by Steve Madden (see similar here) for a more fun and relaxed atmosphere. I also wore black pointed heels with bows (see similar here or here by Zappos Luxury)–perfect for a classic holiday look.

If you’re still looking for that perfect occasion party dress to bring in the New Year, be sure to scope out the Zappos site. Not only do they have great brands like Brigitte Bailey and Culture Phit, but they also have tons more that are sure to help you make that statement you want.

Happy Holidays!
