A Dressy Polka Dot Day with a Pop of Blue!

November 28, 2012

Hello Lovely Readers~

Today’s featured item is a dress that I’ve been so excited to wear! We’d like to thank eShakti for graciously sending us this dress for styling and review. I was able to pick out the dress of my choice, plus submit specific choices on the garment for customization (such as hem length, sleeve length, etc.). How great is that? It’s like having a custom dress tailor made for you without even having to leave your house! We could get used to this special treatment very quickly. 

eShakti is an online clothing store that “believes that all women have the right to wear affordable fashion that is made for them and makes them look their absolute best.” We couldn’t agree more! We found eShakti’s website very easy to use and were impressed with the design, quality and wide array of skirt, top and dress options available.  

Upon receiving this lovely dress, I knew a pop of cobalt with shoes and accessories would be just the right finishing touches. I added a leather bomber jacket for a touch of edge (and for the temps that are finally starting to cool around here).  Also, they are running a great promotion for new customers.

Happy Thanksgiving from L&W: Wearing Magenta + Leopard

November 22, 2012

Happy Thanksgiving Lovely Readers~

Today’s look is an easy one for me - my favorite print plus a pop of color. These exact stretch cropped-pants from The Limited are so comfortable, and will be perfect for the day’s eating and other activities. Wearing magenta is on the top of my list at the moment; remember how I styled a similar look in this post? The weather here is staying in the mid 70’s - so no cozy sweaters or boots for W and I.

I’m exited also to show readers several amazing pieces of Stella & Dot jewelry, thanks to Sara Michael, Star Stylist. I’m wearing the Windsor Tassel necklace, layered with the La Coco chain. The gorgeous Chantilly Lace cuff is on my left arm, and right arm is layered with the renegade bracelets  The look is completed with these berry colored Serenity stone earrings. These new accessories are some of my very favorites, and W & I always look forward to styling them! You can visit her site and facebook page to see more promotions and events. 

We hope that everyone has a blessed and relaxing day with your families! We want to take the time to thank all of our wonderful readers for supporting us in writing and styling at The DoubleTake Girls. We are blessed to have you all!

Golden Stripes + The Little Black Skirt with L

November 19, 2012

Hi Lovely Readers~

Today’s post is a “What I Wore” look from Sunday. I picked up this cute, striped top at Forever 21 when I was in Dallas at the end of September (I was even nice enough to get one for W as well…I couldn’t let her miss out on a style steal!!). As you readers know, I’ve been drawn to this warm marigold color all season. I thought it was a great shade to pair with black, gold and leopard.  I love how the combination adds a bit of luxury to the outfit without making it stuffy.  What do you think about this classic color palette?  

Thanks for reading!

L&W’s Instagram Shoe Pic is a Sole Society Winner!

November 18, 2012

Hi Lovely Readers~

We are beyond excited to share the news that we (aka The DoubleTake Girls) were chosen as one of the 5 winners of the #ElectionShoeIn contest that Sole Society featured in Friday’s email! We of course love our leopard Kelly wedges and knew they would steal the spotlight! Our prize was a pair of red and blue shoes, which worked out perfectly since we each got to pick out a favorite style on our ever-growing Sole Society wish list. Our prize selections will be featured in an upcoming post. We each wore them to an event over the weekend…and they are so fun! We can’t wait to show them off to our readers. You can see how W last styled the Kelly wedge here

If you are new to Sole Society - you must check them out, along with our favorite and oh so versatile Kelly pointed toe wedge that we showcased in our winning picture.  Each day Sole Society adds a new shoe to their amazing showcase, so we are sure you will soon become obsessed with checking their site daily just as we have.  Who says shoes can’t be worthy of being called breaking news?!?

Happy Sunday!
