This past weekend I was on a mission to find dark denim high-waist shorts…but of course when I am looking for something, I find and WANT everything else but what I am actually looking for. So while shopping I found this mirrored effect floral printed dress at Forever 21. This new print is on trend and will continue to be well into Fall. I am even starting to see this “mirrored effect,” in swimsuits too!

I love this cut and fit because I can wear it with a blazer for work and take off the blazer for happy hour or a date night. If you are an online shopper and want to purchase this dress make sure to buy a size larger than you would usually be because it runs a bit snug.

Field of colors, lace, crystals and tall models galore; that pretty much summed up my Friday night at JW Marriot Desert Ridge for the Massage Envy Fashion Show! This show was a grand production and I had an amazing time styling this show! Thanks to Phoenix Fashion Week for letting me style such a fun and colorful event!

For this show I was inspired by Massage Envy’s location color/theme…..PURPLE!!! So I wanted the color pallet to flow around the rich purple they use to trademark their name. (Shown Below)

All of the models in this picture are wearing looks from Dillards. The Saturday before the show I spent close to 3 hours in the Scottsdale Fashion Square location, pulling looks because there was sooo much to choose from (which is never a bad thing). What really stood out to me was the flowy dresses and tailored jackets and for the men I was drawn to board shorts and rolled up skinny’s for summer!

I also wanted to give a special “shout out” to the amazing style team that helped me backstage with a flawless show! I look forward to working with all of you again! 🙂

LOL! I had to add this picture because I love standing next to these beautiful models because I am half of their size…literally!

Spring is now quickly turning into summer weather and I wanted to check out the stores to see if I could find any transition pieces for my wardrobe. I recently went on a mini shopping spree at Tempe Market Place this past weekend and I found a crisp, white peplum rayon top at Divaz Boutique. This top inspired me to do a blog post on Work to Weekend Wear Looks!

I am so excited to be teaming up with Phoenix Fashion Week again on the Green Street Realty Charity Fashion Show this Thursday, April 18th at 7:30. I will be styling looks from Shawl Dawls, Bounty Hunter, JHaus Denim, Amir’s La Voute and Vintage By Misty.

What’s extremely exciting about the show is that 100% of the proceeds earned from the event and silent auctions will be donated to The Phoenix Children’s Hospital. This Spring into Summer show will focus on looks that will be on the runway; and then can be transitioned to your closet. You will see a lot of “ready to wear,” pieces from the designers and collections I listed above.

This weekend I started pulling looks from the show and saw myself steering towards a lot of stripes for men! Women have been wearing stripes all season and I love it. I recommend pairing stripes with a bright color. For example if you are wearing stripe leggings (black and white) I would pair them with a bright color top (like the picture shown below). She rocks this outfit and didn’t even have to accessorize that much! If you do not want to be that BOLD; you can pair a basic black dress with a stripe blazer.

I hope all of you can show support for Phoenix Children’s Hospital and come to the show this Thursday!

Fashion is all around us…on television, our favorite shows, magazines and ONLINE. It is so easy to get online and shop but sometimes when you get your items…it’s not exactly what you expected! So I wanted to let you know of the, “Rochelle Approved,” online stores that are great quality items that you won’t be nervous to buy/open.

Let’s start with Accessory Addicted. This is a fun, very bold site with unique pieces that you will not find at just any store.

Accessoryaddicted

Some of their pieces remind me of something you would see at Juicy Couture (vintage and colorful) but for a fraction of the cost. Their accessories are anywhere from $10 to $178. Below are one of my favorites for Spring; these earrings can dress up a basic cotton tee with some dark skinny jeans in an instant and that is what I love about accessories!

Another online favorite of mine is Just Fab. I am not a big fan of their shoes but I LOVE their handbags! Recently I purchased two handbags for Spring and fell in love (each only $39.95). Both bags are big enough to carry everything that I need throughout the day…my make-up bag, snacks, lunch, water bottle and my purse essentials…..that is truly my kind of purse 🙂

363033-12-1_860x860

Last but not least is Alexandra Beth. These pieces remind me of a little boutique my husband and I went to in Kaui for our Honeymoon (that’s probably why I love these accessories so much!).

These earrings are beautiful, I love this color purple because they can go with almost every color you are wearing. I love these earrings with a bright purple top or even a mint green blouse with a tan pencil skirt… if you have been following my blogs…you will see that I love to mix and match a lot of my colors because I love color…especially in Spring and Summer.

3100

My last favorite accessory is this amazing ring (shown above). I have not received this ring in the mail yet but I cannot wait to get it. Surprisingly, I do not have a ring like this. I am pretty simple with my rings. I usually wear my wedding rings on my left hand and that’s it. So I was purchasing outside my comfort zone but that is the luxury of shopping and living lol. I will keep all of you posted on what I think of this gem! Hope this blog helped some of you with your online accessory shopping.

I hope all of you had a wonderful weekend!

Her boutique has a wide variety of local designer collections that I will be using in the show! Kim and I went over prints and colors that would coordinate well with the idea I was shooting for in my head.

Are you looking for everything at your finger tips, when it comes to shopping? At LuLus.com you will find dresses, shoes, jewelry, high waist shorts in every color imaginable and so much more! I recently discovered this website when I was looking for some new Spring dresses. I googled “Mint Dresses,” and LuLus came up!

LuLu’s carries affordable finds by emerging designers and Indie finds from all over the world! Below are some of my favorite looks for Spring 2013!
65522844188381884458
These four pieces are some of my favs for Spring! This site has everything for every look you are going for; whether it’s a casual look or a red carpet event. The lace nude top is very versatile with a pair of black cigarette pants (they look like high-water skinny jeans) or high-waist neon pink shorts! You will be seeing a lot of lace this Spring and Summer in shorts dresses and accessories.

As for the dresses, I love the fact that it is the easiest piece of my wardrobe to put together because I only need to add accessories and heels! But if you are not a dress kind of gal no problem; I still have you covered with…SHOES!
8301079778
83174
84770
I am a “heel fan,” myself but they have a lot of ballet flats, sandals and boots in various colors and textures. I have not purchased their shoes as of yet so I do not know the quality but they look amazing…and pain is beauty! 🙂

Happy Friday and Style on ladies!

I always look forward to the 3rd week of every month…why you ask? That means my subscriptions to: Glamour, Baazar, Vogue, Elle and In Style come in the mail. I like to dissect each magazine from beginning to end on Saturday mornings (and take notes of course) on fun “do it yourself” ideas around the home, recipes and of course THE FASHION!

20130201-232341.jpg

Magazines like Baazar inspire me to dress in a way that expresses “Me!” I love bold prints with stripes and neon colors with nude but I can’t buy everything I see in the magazines (I don’t buy the name brands; I find everything at a discounted price). So my magazine dreamin, inspired me to write this blog post today! Must have in my closet and yours:

20130203-111020.jpg
1. A black boyfriend blazer is a must have in your closet! You can dress this blazer up or down. I pair up this blazer with skinny jeans and a cotton tee with some converse shoes for day wear and at night I switch the converse tennis with black pointy stilettos. I also like to wear my blazers going out with bandaged dresses or high waisted mini skirts, with boho tops tucked into the skirt.

20130203-112232.jpg
2. A pair of dark denim skinny jeans are another essential of mine because they can be worn in any type of event; dressed up or dressed down. I like the fact that I can wear wedges, stilettos, booties and knee high boots with my skinny’s. You can also purchase skinny jeans almost anywhere; my favorite skinny’s are from:
-Wet Seal
-Guess By Marciano
-G By Guess
-Forever 21

20130203-113026.jpg
3. A little black dress should have been #1 on my list because my little black dress has saved me at weddings, bachelorette parties, fancy dinners and cruises. Black is just an elegant color in my eyes and it can be worn at all of the events I listed above. There have been times that I just accessorized with a pair of diamond studs and my wedding ring and other times where I wore bangles and a statement piece necklace…that is all up to you!

20130203-113921.jpg
4. A nude basic top can be worn for work or for play! I would wear this top, tucked into a high waist navy blue pencil skirt with nude pumps. Then for play I would wear pair this top with faux leather leggings with gold accessories.

20130203-114704.jpg
5. Faux Leather Leggings will never go out of style! I love this look because no matter what you pair with these leggings; I ensure you will look and feel fabulous! I would buy these faux leggings at:
-Forever 21
-G By Guess
-Guess By Marciano
-H & M (Seasonal)
-Lauren Conrad Collection (Kohls)

20130203-115354.jpg
6. Peep Toe Stilettos are my most worn pair of shoes in my closet. They are very versatile for any look you are going for!

20130203-120528.jpg
7. A Gold Statement Necklace is an easy piece of jewelry that can complete your entire outfit. I would wear this necklace with any of the outfits I listed above. This necklace is $98 at Lucky.

And there you have it! The 7 essentials to a better looking closet that will make you feel fabulous!

Happy Sunday <3
