Folake – Style Pantry

Tribal Prints, I go goo-goo-gaga-gaga for these prints because they are such one-of-a-kind pieces! Unfortunately, they can be difficult to find unless you are having them custom-made. Not in this instance, Kolake wears the Stella-Jean Cinzia’ tribal print pencil dress, and it fits her to perfection. The pattern looks stunning against her skin tone and her curly tendrils provide the perfect accessory for the look. Not to be outdone, the shoes stood their own ground. Even with all the fab-ness already taking place, blood-orange ‘So Kate’ pumps polished off the look in a vibrant way.

Unfortunately the Stella Jean dress is sold out but you can shop a similar skirt here.

Alexandra – Lovely-Pepa

Cross Body Bags! When I first saw that these were making a comeback, I had reservations about them. Mostly because I just had an awful flashback of fanny-packs as the only thing going across people’s bodies. However, times and designs have changed. Cross Body bags are impressively chic and dare I saw even the fanny packs have stepped their style came up. I now appreciate the convenience of a cross body bag, because I find that in most cases they add to the sophistication of a look, and when traveling they are the most accommodating handbag that one can wear. They help you to travel light and avoids any potential pick pocketing, unless the robber intends to take your entire body along for the ride.

Alex of Lovely-Pepa wears the new S/S 15 dual color metropolis cross-body Furla bag. The bag is a great accent to her multicolored ice-cream shirt dress. She chose to finish the look with nude pumps and the famous Eiffel Tower landmark as her backdrop. I too have this bag in the all cream color seen here, and it was the perfect accessory for my Mexican getaway. I’m sure that Alex had a blast with this little mini while in Paris as well. If you are interested in shopping the same piece you can find it here, or this trendy alternative for less here.

Wendy – Wendy’s Lookbook

Culottes! How many of you are planning on trying out this trend? I’ve already bought this same exact pair so I am looking forward to the challenge of styling it. Culottes can be a little awkward depending on your frame, especially because they flare out but they don’t go all the way down to the ankles, so it sort of feels like you outgrew your flare-leg trousers.

I admire the way Wendy styled her look featuring these pants. Considering the fact that she is very petite and isn’t model tall, one would think that the pants would overwhelm her. On the contrary, by keeping her proportions tight and accentuating her waist with a mid-length blouse just beneath her waistline she worked the look with great confidence. The added pop of color via her red pumps and red lip combined with the funky futuristic shades elevated this look into chic domain.

What say you, are you bold enough to expose your ankles with this fad?
