Alright ladies and gents, it’s Sunday night and you know what that means. I’m ready to unwind and surf my favorite social media outlets. Before I start my search for eye candy, I’d like to introduce you to a very talented make-up artist. Her name is April Lopes and you can find her on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. Below are some pictures of her work which she has posted on her Instagram.
Check out her YouTube page for tutorials!
She did a before and after on KocoSky’s founder, Frankie(above). She did an amazing job bringing out Franki’s natural beauty. Soft warm colors on the eyes and sun-kissed lips…simply georgeous!
Ladies the one thing we never leave home without is our PURSE! Some of us carry our lives in it. A purse has to be functional, comfortable to carry, complement your ensemble, and most important appropriate for the occasion. For nights out on the town and special occasions, the right clutch has the potential to pull your whole look together.
Below are some new KocoSky clutches.
My personal favorite is the first one. I love the black/neutral color combo in the snake print. It will add texture and intrigue to any solid dress. You can also style these clutches with jeans, black blazer, white top, pendant necklace and pointy toe heels. Think versatility ladies!
ADD THAT POP and MAKE IT HOT!
It’s Monday night, and you’ve just received an invite to a party on Saturday. It’s crunch time, and you have exactly 4 days left to find THE PERFECT OUTFIT! With a busy week ahead, shopping for something new will be impossible.
Don’t stress yourself out. Instead, stick with what you have and accessorize. It’s a fail-proof way of turning the drab back to fab.
If you have a plain black dress, imagine it with the KocoSky statement necklace above. It will transform your dress and make it new again. If you’re feeling casually chic, pair it with ankle jeans, a white tank, pointed cap toe pumps and a cuffed blazer.
(This necklace will be available soon)
Above are some of my favorite pieces from KocoSky. The chain cuffs can be worn with casual pieces and are perfect for dresses that need an edgy make-over. The 3 strand necklace pairs impeccably with solid maxi dresses. Numbers 1,2,and 3 are currently on the site. Number 4 will be available soon.
You’ll never have enough accessories! It’s an extension of your personality and a way to personalize your look.
Stay on top of your fall wardrobe with this sweet addition. This transitional piece will take you from summer to fall with a simple shoe change.
This versatile piece can be worn through the summer with sandals. Above, I’ve paired it with Boutique9 Gennifer platform sandals. The wooden chunky heel stays in tune with the casual vibe of the dress while giving it a sassy touch.
In the fall, layer with a leather vest like the Rachel Zoe ‘Nora’ and complete the look with Rag&Bone Harrow booties or ONEbyDaniblack Morton booties.
This dress will be available soon on KocoSky.com
This chic little number will be available in navy as well but I’m really drawn to this taupe color.
- KocoSky dress
- KocoSky skinny metal twist belt w/ dangling chain
- Boutique9-Chastelyn heel
Perfect for a night out on the town, dinner date and even weddings.
Rebecca Taylor Elina sandal
- KocoSky large coral film ring
Feeling a bit casual? Try it with colorful flat sandals.
BCBGMAXAZRIA Carter T-strap sandal
This look is dressy but by using the self tie sash, it keeps the focus on the dress itself. The shoe has an edgy appeal, designed with buckles and a lower heel. Complete it with statement earrings and you’ll be ready for a lunch date, shopping, and even happy hour. There’s a sweet and innocent appeal about this dress but the chiffon overlay and peek-a-boo shoulders will keep you looking sexy.
The dress will be available soon.
Everyone has their own individual style. Some are daring, while others are conservative. Ultimately, fashion is a platform to express ourselves. Colors and pattern choices speak volumes about our mood and personality. The silhouettes we drape ourselves in may reflect our confidence. Whatever your fashion choices may be, it’s unique and special. Staying true to who you are makes this world diverse. In fashion, there will always be something for someone to fall in love with.
I’ve always had a love for jumpsuits and rompers. There’s just something sexy about them. Take a look at the romper below. A pattern that pops, fabric that’s comfortable, and a versatile look that can be dressed up with heels or worn casually with flats sandals.
I paired the romper with Dolce Vita ‘Archer’ sandals, Maria Sharapova ’Air Mirella’ sandals and MARC by Marc Jacobs rimless shield glasses. I like the simple lines of both sandals. With a busy print on top, a minimal shoe won’t overpower the look.
This romper will be available soon on KocoSky.com. I’d love to see how you personalize yours!!
How many times have you put on that same hoop/stud earring or purchased a piece of jewelry that looks almost identical to something you already have? Do you store your precious pieces in a box or a drawer? Keeping them tucked away may be the culprit. For years, I’ve kept my pieces out of sight, which also means out of mind. I’ve neglected my collection of jewelry simply because I’ve forgotten what I have. This cute jewelry tree has solved my problem.
Purchased at Costco $19.99
Each leaf has 4 holes for 2 sets of earrings. The curly twigs can hold bracelets, necklaces, or earrings. The bird’s nest is perfect for rings and the base can house brooches and watches.
It’s also perfect for displaying KocoSky jewelry like this bold statement necklace. It’s a great piece to pair with a strapless dress or under a tailored blazer for an outstanding pop of drama. It’ll instantly update and transform any ordinary little black dress!
This one is my current favorites. I love earrings that draw attention and elongate.
statement necklace and disk earrings will be available soon on the website!
The holiday season is in full swing and party dates are flooding our calendars. Pick out that perfect dress and don’t forget to pair it with a clutch that compliments. An evening soiree doesn’t require us to carry much so a small clutch is appropriate. This slinky animal print is one of my favorites. It pairs impeccably with a little black dress and its metallic shine dresses up any look. It also has a removable chain that can be left on and draped over your shoulder.
This snake print clutch is a medium size that can be unfolded and held by its oval handles.It’s perfect for those that require a bit more space for their necessities and can easily go from day to night. The subtle print creates a gentle texture against any plain back drop. I’d pair this with the Claire sweater dress and a pair of knee-high boots.
If you desire an edgy flare, let me introduce you to your next love affair. This zipper trimmed clutch comes equipped with versatility and glam appeal. I’d pair this with the Khris, Judy or even an open sweater cardigan. It’s a timeless clutch you’ll reach for year after year.
Some of us are guilty of packing our purses full of unnecessary necessities and there may be times when you need to carry a little extra but for evenings out, a small clutch is all you need. It’s perfect for your currency, pda, lipstick and keys. A clutch can also come in handy for day outings. It’s an easy way to change up your casual day time look. When choosing your clutch, keep size, shape and color in mind. It’s definitely a functional piece that doubles as an accessory.
The clutches above will be available soon on KocoSky.com
