Fashion Friday: Marchesa Crystal Frontal Necklace

I’m such a sucker for a statement necklace. I don’t tend to wear a lot of jewelry, so when I decide to wear some, I really want it to stand out. Recently, while shopping for statement necklaces, I found this amazing one: the Marchesa Crystal Frontal Necklace, which can be purchased at Nordstrom for $88. 

I love the vintage-inspired shapes and detailing. Also, I love that it’s more of a dark grey/black metal rather than a silver. It gives it a darker edge and makes it seem even older. Overall, I just really love this statement necklace! It’s dramatic generally, but it’s not so over-the-top that it will be a struggle to pair it with an outfit.

Fashion Friday: Dress the Population Charlie Sequin Jumpsuit

Do you want to really stand out this holiday season? Well, then have I got the jumpsuit for you! Just take a look at the Charlie Sequin Jumpsuit from Dress the Population. This piece is available at Nordstrom for $318.

This jumpsuit is gorgeous! It looks so streamlined and slimming, and the multi-colored sequins are absolutely mesmerizing. I feel like this jumpsuit is the ultimate jumpsuit, and I really wish I could pull it off. Unfortunately, at 5’2″, there’s just no way that this would be right with my proportions. I wonder if it comes in a romper?

Would you be brave enough to wear this jumpsuit? Be sure to let me know in the comment section!

One final note…tomorrow is December 1st, which means I’ll be starting Blogmas! This year, I have Sephora’s (sold-out) Enchanted Castle advent calendar, so stay tuned for 24 days of short reviews/videos all about this advent calendar!

Fashion Friday: BLANKNYC Meant to Be Moto Jacket with Removable Hood

It looks like Moto jackets are still going to be popular this autumn and winter, which is great since I still have a gorgeous one from Banana Republic. However, while I was looking at Nordstrom, I realized that it might be nice to get one in a fun color that isn’t black, white, or grey. That’s when I spotted the BLANKNYC Meant to Be Moto Jacket with Removable Hood which retails for $98 and comes in this stunning shade of green.

First off, I’m glad the hood is removable because I would definitely want to remove it. The hood looks a bit bulky and makes the jacket look more casual than classy. Either way, I love the edginess that a moto jacket lends to a look (even though it’s subtle). With this green shade, you’d be sure to stand out. Honestly, though, this is a great twist on a neutral. It would still go with pretty much everything since it’s a darker green.

Do you have a favorite moto jacket or is this not the trend for you? Be sure to let me know in the comment section!

Fashion Friday: Steve Madden Brinkley Over the Knee Stretch Boot

Welcome to another installment of Fashion Friday! I’ve been thinking about the boots that I still have from last year. I have so many ankle boots and mid-calf boots, but I want something high and dramatic this year. I was looking at Nordstrom and now I’m in love with the Steve Madden Brinkley Over the Knee Stretch Boot which retails for $130.

I love that this boot is stretchy because my calves are not the slimmest. I also love the teeny heel and the overall elegant shape of the boot. I could definitely see myself wear these with jeans or even a shorter dress. They are suede, so they wouldn’t be appropriate for snow unless I got them treated. Still, I think these need to make their way into my winter wardrobe!

What boots are you considering for the upcoming winter? Be sure to let me know in the comment section!

Fashion Friday: Bardot Alice Lace Body-Con Dress

I feel like I’m a lot more comfortable with makeup than I am fashion. I’m still perfecting my person aesthetic when it comes to clothes, and I think that part of it is caused by my general discomfort with my current weight. Accessorizing is so much easier (and more forgiving) than actual clothes. Still, as I’m searching for pieces for my Fashion Friday installments, I am always drawn to lace and things that are vintage-inspired. That’s probably why I’m now obsessed with the Bardot Alice Lace Body-Con Dress which is available at Nordstrom for $149.

I love that this dress is sexy but mysterious. The geometric cutouts are fascinating and remind me of Art Deco art and architecture from the 1920s. Also, the nude fabric and black lace work so well together. If I had a different body, I would absolutely buy this one. The only thing that I don’t love is the high neckline. I would much prefer a scoop neck.

Would you wear this piece or do you have a favorite vintage-inspired brand to share? Be sure to let me know your thoughts in the comment section!

Fashion Friday: Chelsea28 Versatile Dress

I think that versatility is so important when it comes to fashion. I like things that I can both dress up and play down depending on the occasion. So, when I was shopping online on Nordstrom’s website, I was thrilled to see this amazing dress: the Chelsea28 Crepe Fit & Flare Dress. This dress retails for $139 but is currently on sale for $83.40.

Photo Credit: Nordstrom

There are so many reasons to love this dress. First, it’s a generally flattering shape. The fit of the waistline plus the flare of the skirt is sure to be slimming. I’m also pretty self-conscious about my upper arms, and the ruffle in this sleeve would be a good way to sort of mask that area in a flattering way.

This dress is also one that could be worn in a variety of settings: the office, a casual cocktail party, a date, even an outdoor wedding. You’re sure to have lots of opportunities for wear with a dress like this.

So, how do you feel about this dress? Be sure to let me know in the comment section!

Fashion Friday: Badgley Mischka

Welcome to another Fashion Friday. Today, I wanted to share a really awesome new purchase with you: these Badgley Mischka pumps! This is one of my favorite brands – they have amazing shoes, dresses, and handbags – but unfortunately, they’re not super affordable. That’s why I love Poshmark so much! With Poshmark, you can buy and sell new and gently used designer items. Sometimes, you can find amazing deals (like these $295 shoes that are in almost pristine condition, which I bought for only $30).

One of the reasons that I love the brand Badgley Mischka is that their general aesthetic seems to suit me. Structurally, their shoes/handbags/clothes are all very classic and elegant. However, they’re never boring and almost always contain a bit of sparkle. I’ve been wanting to actually own something from this brand for a really long time, so I’m thrilled to now call these shoes mine!

Is this a brand you love too, or do you have a Poshmark experience to share? Be sure to let me know in the comment section!

Fashion Friday: Statement Necklaces

Statement necklaces are making a big comeback right now. It seems like everywhere I look, I’m finding more and more unique designs for statement necklaces. They truly come in all shapes and sizes now. From the extremely oversized to the mildly avant garde, statement necklaces are a great way to take a risk when it comes to fashion. While it may be scarier to wear a really whimsical dress or top, there’s something much easier about trying dramatic jewelry because it’s still such a smaller scale risk.

The photo above shows some of my newest statement necklaces. They are all very different, but I’ve found occasions for wearing them all. I bought all of these on Amazon. As I was shopping on Amazon, I was so pleased by the variety of styles and price points. It’s a great way to find some eclectic jewelry pieces. These cost between $8 and $23 a piece, which just can’t be beat.

However, if you’re more interested in seeing the jewelry in person before you purchase (which is totally reasonable), I feel like these are literally everywhere anyway: department stores, specialty boutiques, thrift stores, even Target and TJ Maxx. Whether you want to spend $12 or $2000, there’s a statement necklace option for your budget.

As I was visiting my parents the other day, I was talking to my mom about statement necklaces when my dad interrupted with the question, “What statement are you trying to make?” I thought about this for a while before answering, “I guess I’m just saying, ‘Look at Me!'”

While he was amused with my answer, I’ve recently been thinking that this is only half of the truth. Yes, statement necklaces are noticeable and are great for obtaining attention, but they are also an interesting way to express yourself. They’re wearable art. The intricate metalwork and combination of embellishments are sometimes like sculptures.

Anyway, these are just some of my thoughts about statement necklaces. Is this a trend you want to try? Do you have a favorite place to shop for statement necklaces? Be sure to let me know in the comment section!

The Big Re-brand

Hi Everyone!

You may have noticed that Cincy Couture has recently undergone some changes. What started as a tiny beauty blog is growing into something more exciting. While this website will still remain a blog, we’re expanding into a monthly magazine as well (publishing details are still to come, but if you’re an aspiring fashion journalist, there will be many options for collaboration!)

With this new global outlook comes another change – a name change! “Cincy Couture” is where we started (small and in Cincinnati) but we wanted a name that would better reflect who we’re connecting with – fashionistas from all over the world. So, from now on, we’ll be called “Haute Couture Society.”

Thanks to everyone who has connected with Cincy Couture. We’re not disappearing, we’re just evolving. As we enter this period of continued transition, we’ll still be posting lots of reviews, but starting in January of 2019, we’ll have even more to offer with the launch of our magazine!
