This was without a doubt my favorite outfit I wore during NYFW. The ruffles were a great added detail to the sleeves. The ruffles made the dress fun, playful and chic.  I know these photos may look familiar, you may have seen them in my “Shopstyle Social House Post.” I couldn’t help but share the look again in it’s own post. Because it was that good, at least in my opinion. 🙂

The off the shoulder look was one style that I rocked all summer long. It’s such a flattering style that suits everyone. What’s great about this dress, I can wear this look again this Fall. The dark denim color is perfect for the season. Great for the day time seen here or even for a night on the town. No matter what time of day you wear this number, you’ll be turning heads all over. Everyone will want to know where to buy this dress. One dress you’ll want to own. Shop my look by clicking the links below.

Fashion+Style: My Summer Casual Look

Posted on: July 15, 2016

 

style-post

There are so many reasons why I love New York City. One reason, is that I love to explore the city. I feel NYC, is great for exploring. I like to walk around, and venture in and around the city.  You can pretty much discover something new everyday.

————

This summer I did a lot exploring and walking around this beautiful city. It was definitely hot and steamy most days, but this outfit was easy and breezy not to mention light weight. That I didn’t feel uncomfortable wearing it in the Summer heat. I like to call this look: My summer time casual look. This is outfit was not only lightweight, it was stylish and comfortable. I took this daytime look, and turned it into a night time ready look.  I dressed it up by changing my sandals to heels and changed up my make up for a more sultry and sexy night time look.

[Coming soon to the blog, this same Trench vest is great staple to own, great transitional piece for all seasons. ]

SFB FASHION FRIDAYS: YOGA X FASHION: YOGI LADY BOSS FASHIONISTA

Posted on: June 24, 2016

SFB FASHION FRIDAYS: YOGA X FASHION: YOGI LADY BOSS FASHIONISTA

Recently, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and connecting with this lovely, smart, fashionable business woman. Whose combined her love for fashion and Yoga and created a business that speaks for itself. The moment I first spoke with Jen Stock, I immediately was drawn to her positive vibes and energy. It was no surprise that we immediately gravitated towards one another. From that moment on, I just knew I wanted to learn more about this savvy – yogi loving and fashion forward business woman.

When you meet Jen Stocks it’s easy to be completely drawn by her presence. She’s all about positive energies and good vibes which is something I can definitely relate to. With her positive outlook on life, spiritualty, love for fashion and yoga these elements are what inspired her jewelry line: Jen Stock Designs.

She’s always had a love and passion for fashion and knew one day she would do something with that. Thus came her spiritually inspired jewelry designs. For over 25 years she’s practiced yoga which has been the root and inspiration behind her jewelry. She takes what she has practiced on the mat and puts it all into her work. All of her jewelry is handmade, vegan, and yoga inspired. Her jewelry exudes luxury, with a symbolic and spiritual balance between mind, body and soul, all things that Jen Stocks embodies and something that holds a strong importance to her.

Her designs have been worn by the likes of Russell Simmons, Heidi Klum, Rita Ora and many well- known Hollywood stars and yogi enthusiast. Her jewelry is known for its wearable fashion and style for both for men and woman. Each piece holds a different meaning and possess a unique design. The message behind her jewelry is: “What you put out in the universe, is what you will receive in return.”Something I feel many can relate to and believe in.

If ever you get the chance to meet this remarkable, business owner and Lady Boss you too will see what I see. Not only does she design beautiful, luxurious jewelry, her personality is so positive and not to mention contagious. You can find her at a Yoga studio near you, either on the mat or displaying and selling her designs. If you too embody and belief in all things: positive, uplifting and empowering, check out Jen and her jewelry. Not only will you love her jewelry line but the designer behind it all as well. A true lady boss and spiritual believer, we all can learn something from her.

As you read along and follow my journey, just like Jen’s positive vibes and energy that’s what I’m all about.  So, it was only fitting to have worked with such a positive minded and fashion minded enthusiast like herself. I too hope to inspire, empower and uplift you all to have only the most positive outlook on life.

Jen Stock is a true talent, who takes being a business owner and fashion lover to the next level. I look forward to working with her again and seeing her new collection and designs come to life.

Influencers & Blogger Brunch + Weekend Casual Chic Style

Posted on: April 24, 2016

Happy Monday Loves!

For this Motivational Monday, I’ll share and recap my weekend where I  attended this amazing brunch and I met some pretty awesome ladies who were quite inspiring and uplifting. In addition to my recap, I’m going to feature my very first outfit post on the blog. Here I’ll tell you all about my outfit that I wore to the event and if you like it as much as I did you can shop my look by clicking the items below. I hope that by sharing my experience with you it will motivate you into thinking only positive thoughts and making sure you have a wonderful week ahead! How will you make this week better than the last? Happy reading loves!

 

This past weekend I was invited to AMCONYC’S 2nd Annual Top 50 Beauty and Fashion Influencers Brunch, held at the ultra chic, trendy, delicious, Greek and Mediterranean restaurant, Nerai,  located at 55 West 54th Street NYC (between Madison and Park Avenue). If you haven’t been to this restaurant, and your looking for fresh and innovative take on Mediterranean cuisine discover, try and enjoy Nerai. Check it out and let me know what you think!  It was the perfect setting for this fun and intimate brunch. Now, I’ve read and seen many blogs, companies and brands, but it was so great to finally put a face to the names behind all the works of these creative ladies.

The energy in the room was quite powerful and strong, I felt honored to be amongst such an inspiring, creative group of fellow Girlboss’s and Influential ladies. I loved how everyone felt at ease and so comfortable.  Conversations were flowing, and it was great to all be at a united front, speaking about ideas on how we can all support one another and empower not only ourselves but our audiences who follow along in our journey through our blogs and various social platforms. I’m simply grateful and thankful for the opportunity and invitation to this wonderful event and lunch. It warms my heart, to meet such kind and genuine group of women this past weekend. The energy and shared loved that filled the room was very strong and you could definitely feel its presence. Nothing but  good, honest positive vibes that came from every single person there. I can’t stress enough, how uplifting and inspiring it is to meet such like-minded, forward thinking, creatives and entrepreneurs. I wish there were more women out there that thought this same way and lived life that same purpose. It’s great how we can all come together to support and empower one another. I’ve heard and seen so many cases where women are bashing other women or even bringing them down instead up lifting them up and rising up together.

A lot of our conversations, were about fashion, beauty but mostly and more importantly we spoke about empowerment. How we all are here for the same goals, we all want something better for ourselves and one another. We all supported the fact on how important it is to help one another however we can. One influencer, blogger and Girlboss said,

               “It’s better to support one another, thats the only way we move forward and in turn we all rise up together.”

She couldn’t have said it any better, so I hash tagged it as #riseuptogether. So key and fitting for this is the type of society we live in where it’s heavily driven by social media.  My philosophy is simply: We’re all here for the same ideas and purpose, we can only better ourselves and each other by coming together and supporting one another. And in turn this will help us grow and move forward, and it’s always better when you have a great team or an even better girl squad. You’ll forever have a great support system, cheering squad and lifelong relationships  and friendships. It’s truly a powerful things to be surrounded by so much love, genuine positivity, and energy by so many influential ladies. Not to mention inspiring, I’m extremely thankful for meeting such a remarkable group of women.  I only wish them nothing but the absolute best and more, much continued success all around. I just know and feel that only amazing things lie ahead for all of us. I look forward to meeting with these ladies again soon, and working together to discover more ways to support and empower one another. I’ve been fortunate enough to meet such wonderful women along my journey and we’ve become not only a great support system for one another we’ve become great friends too.

The entire brunch and event was so fun, a great way to spend my Saturday afternoon. Truly a very supportive, inspiring and empowering bunch we all were. And it only gave me more reasons to stay motivated, focused and even more determined for the future and what lies ahead. So many amazing things can happen when we all can come together like we did.  A HUGE thank you to AMCONYC for hosting this wonderful brunch and bringing us all together and for our amazing gift bags, I can’t wait to try out all the goodies!!

This quote is so fitting and true, ” Girls compete with one another, Women empower each other.” #girlsquad #riseuptogether #supportoneanother #sharingiscaring #GirlBosses

AMCONYC BRUNCH 2016 #2

4/5

 

Now onto my outfit details………

WEEKEND CASUAL CHIC STYLE

Now even though i’m very much into fashion and keeping up with trends and styles, when picking an outfit for the day I always think, “Am I going to be comfortable in that.???” I always say this to myself, because in my opinion when you feel comfortable in your overall look + appearance you exude a sense of confidence, that will catch anyone’s eye. In a positive way of course, but when you feel confident and happy about yourself it’s a great feeling overall. Keeping comfort + practicality in mind, I still want to look fashionably chic in my own personal style.  I mean come on I live in the fashion mecca– New York City, so you know the looks gotta be on point lol. Fashion is one thing but two things I keep in mind are comfort + practicality. Fashion to me is what you make of it, everyone has their own unique sense of style. You still can be super fashionable even in your most comfortable and casual outfit, so whatever it is you’re wearing , You Better Work honey and rock it! You’ll only feel real and most comfortable when you stay true to yourself and what you believe in. Be creative, be glam, be stylish, be you! (My beliefs and motto all the way) Oh and for those who know me too, i’m all about that comfy+ casual + chic life! 😉

So for the brunch I was debating on wearing a dress or pants with a cute top. But seeing that the weather wasn’t so great starting out — (it was cloudy and rainy) I decided to go with this Casual, comfortable chic look. Even though it turned out to be a beautiful sunny day after all I’m still super happy with how my outfit turned out.  This Off the Shoulder Blouse from Loft are so on trend right now, and I’ve fallen in love with them. I love this style so much that I’ve purchased different variations of this style from other brands and stores. Great for future outfit styles for my upcoming trips. This is so simple but so versatile all at the same time. It can be dressed up or dressed down whatever it is the possibilities are endless. Pair it with a pair of distressed jeans, skirt, or shorts you’ll be looking fly either way. This top is so great and fitting for what’s currently festival season. Very Coachellaesque, pair with a floral headpiece or even braid your hair in two dutch braids as seen on celebs like Kim Kardashian or Blogger, Beauty+ Lifestyle expert Marianna Hewitt. This blouse is so cute and chic it’s perfect for any body type, so I would highly recommend this top to anyone. And this one from The Loft is on sale now and super affordable. If you don’t own an Off the Shoulder Top, dress, etc.. this is definitely a style that will be popular for Spring and well into the Summer even early Fall months. Stay tuned for more outfit post with this top in different styles.

Many people may not think that leather pants/jeans are the most comfortable let alone the most flattering. TheseAG Skinny Leather JeansBurberry Leather Cut-out heelsVince Skater sneakersSocial Fashionista Beauty’s April Favorites list. I just purchased them not to long ago and I wear them all the time. And I love how well they went with this outfit too.  i’ve owned for years and they are one of the MOST comfortable pair of pants I own. And what’s great about them, they go with just about anything like this Off the Shoulder top that I paired it with. You can never have too many leather jeans/pants. For my shoes, they aren’t seen in the photos, but for the brunch I dressed up the look a notch by adding these . They look casual and sporty but their ultra chic and modern. The exotic python leather detail and land snake heel design make them super fashionable taking them up a notch from your regular slip-on sneaker. They definitely make the . I’ve owned them for years and they are super cute, fun and fashionable. I can wear them for the a whole night of dancing but my feet will pay for it the next day. Super cute and somewhat comfortable but not as comfortable as the sneakers I wore, featured in the photos. I wore these heading to the brunch and coming home from the brunch I swapped my heels out for this super cute and comfy

For my accessories I kept it pretty simply. I love anything gold or rose gold, and here I wore my Orange Hermes “H” bracelet to add a pop of color to this basic black and white ensemble. I paired my beautiful  Chloe + Isabel Lunette Long Pendant Necklace  available now on my boutique: www.chloeandisabel.com/boutique/emilydesouza. And the rest of my jewelry are my everyday staples: myTurquoise Evil Eye Beaded Bracelet and Silver Hamsa Bracelet (To keep the bad juju (vibes) away and only good energy around me) my two gold Cartier Love bracelets, My Cartier Love ring , and my Engagement ring and wedding band.

Fashion Fridays: Winter Essential and Accessories keeping you warm but staying fierce and Fashionably Chic!

Posted on: January 22, 2016

Baby it’s cold outside…… BRRRRRRRR

With the cold weather upon us its time to layer up and bundle up . A couple months ago, I posted a photo on my instagram (@SocialFashionistaBeauty) where I was bundled and layered up for the cold weather. And a lot of you asked about my go to fashion wears during those cold, frigid winter days.

Ask and you shall recieve, here it is—here I’ll share my #FlashbackFriday winter photos of me and my fashion go tos, and my go to fashion essentials (price points, brands, etc) and places to shop these fab items to keep me warm but still looking fashionably chic. It may be cold outside but it doesn’t mean you can’t still look stylish and chic!!

Winter Fashion Wears {Essentials and Accessories}

 

 

 

   

 Camp Livingston Parka                                             Black Grey Plaid Tassel Classical Scarve

$115 MODEKUNGEN.SE                                            $9.90 $22 ROMWE.COM

Inverni Black Beanie With Fur Pom Pom                 Black Cashmere and Fur Pom Pom Beanie

$245 HALSBROOK.COM                                             $170 $215 BLACK.CO.UK

INVERNI Wool-Cashmere Gloves with Fur Trim      UGG Australia Shearling Bow Gloves

$240  BROWNSFASHION.COM                                    $135 www.uggaustralia.com

I’m all about the fur whether it’s real fur or faux fur,  it’s uber chic and fashionable.  Fur can definitely dress up even the most casual outfit. If you’re into fur too, try  and incorporate in your winter wardrobe. Fur is versatile too, whether your going casual or even dressed up, either way you’ll feel warm and cozy and look oh so fierce.

Whoever invented and designed the blanket scarf is a genius! I just love the blanket scarf, great for laying and bundling up for those cold days. The blanket scarf is so long with lots to work with, it can be work in many different ways . Dress it up, dress it down either way you’ll still look stylish and keep warm too! Try wearing wearing over your sweaters like a poncho, you’ll take you’re outfit to the next level.

Those big puffy coats aren’t always the most flattering and fashionable. But they definitely keep you warm. Sticking to fashion and staying on point, shop for a coat with fur details around the hood. Your street style will be on trend and on point, still feeling and looking comfy but you’re overall look on fleek.

  The items listed may be pricey, these are just examples I used on my polyvore collage. BUT don’t fear you can find these items for a more affordable cost.  Forever 21, Macy’s, Zara, H&M, and so many others all have variations of these winter fashion staples and more. Fashion is everywhere, so just go with your personal style and work it girl! These are just a few of my staples, and what I used to keep warm. I may like to splurge here and there but I won’t turn down a sale or bargain, I mean who wouldn’t!! 🙂

  Two of my favorite places that have the best bargains but still have the latest in fashion trends is at: Century 21 and Nordstrom Rack. I will admit I do like to splurge a little on designer wears, but Century 21 and Nordstrom Rack sell designer clothing, accessories and more for a fraction of the cost.  Great discounts and bargains guarenteed. Who could EVER pass up a good bargain, am I right!?!?!?!?

Have fun with your wardrobe. And remember just because it’s cold out, it doesn’t mean you can’t look chic, stylish, and fashionable. Enjoy and stay warm and cozy during these winter months.  For more fashion, style, tips, and trends stay tuned my loves!

What are your fashion staples you wear to stay warm?

Do you have a favorite winter accessories?
