    Denim & Lace Look

    20130911-074614.jpgThere’s nothing I love more than mixing and matching different textures and fabrics into a look that is all my own! In true Melissa style, today’s outfit is not just chic but also cheap.

    I found this lace knit top for $7 at Nordstrom Rack this past week and fell in love. It’s perfect for a casual look on the weekends with a pair of jeans or shorts as well as a great piece to pair with a simple black skirt for work.

    I’m always trying to stay fashionable yet professional at the office so I try to mix fun, trendy pieces with a classic staple that goes with everything, like this black bandage skirt from Guess.

    This skirt has lasted me since freshman year of college when I first scored it half off at Bloomingdales, and has definitely lasted the test of time. I’ve worn it to interviews, nights out with the girls and now to work!

    A wise Rachel Zoe once said to invest in the pieces that are staples…pieces that won’t fade from season to season. I think this is one of the best fashion rules of all time. A chic blazer, pencil skirt, great pair of skinny jeans aren’t going anywhere anytime soon!

    Today’s outfit of the day mixed my black skirt, lace top and my Old Navy denim vest that is a fun item to through over any outfit to give it that fun, young vibe. It instantly transformed this outfit from cute and professional to sassy and stylish!
    Today’s OOTD:
    Top: $7 Nordstrom Rack
    Skirt: Guess $30 Bloomingdales
    Vest: $20 Old Navy
    Heels: $22 Anne Klein
    Bag: Louis Vuitton Damier Speedy

    Mani Monday


    Nothing puts me in a better mood than an awesome Manicure!

    This week’s color…‘Cocktail Bling’ from Essie. I have a slight Essie obsession to tell you the truth. I’m just naturally attracted to their colors and an Essie polish manicure lasts me a week without chipping, beat that Shellac or Gel manicures!
