The Kewl Shop :: Giveaway

sweety-flared-bandage-dress

Honestly you’re just as surprised as me when I found out that THE KEWL SHOP could churn out flared bandage dresses as pretty as this sweet bright blue one - also in their signature high quality bandage dress material - which probably produces that Spanx-like effect keeping my stubborn flabs at bay.

I originally planned to wear one of my statement necklaces to accessorize but I decided against it as that certainly will not do justice to how beautiful and well-made those scalloped edges are!

And I can’t thank the lovely people behind THE KEWL SHOP enough for welcoming yours truly as the Face and Brand Ambassador of their FASHION OVER 50 line via a huge GIVEAWAY where a $150 dress value is at stake starting today Monday, September 7 at 1 a.m. till Saturday, September 12 at 12 a.m. (Pacific Standard Time).

Increase your chances of winning by pasting the URL of your dress choice in your comments.  Use the easy-peasy Rafflecopter below to enter – I will announce the lucky winner in my next post coming out this Monday, September 14! ♥

Encore Style :: Wallis Maxi Dress

wallis-maxi-dress

Ok so thanks to this super cute chain belt I found in some yard sale that I was able to resurrect this one-of-a-kind maxi dress I got from one of my earliest collaborations with British brand WALLIS back in 2013.  I feel the dress is just so pretty that it deserves an encore but with a fresh twist via this belt for 2015.

By the way, I am deeply honored and couldn’t be more excited to let y’all know that I am currently the face of the ”FASHION OVER 50” line of THE KEWL SHOP – the best bandage dress online store for every style and budget!  Check out the feature-interview I had with them recently here. ♥

Watch out for another style post and possibly a GIVEAWAY of their fabulous bandage dresses in the coming weeks!

Party Style :: The Bandage Dress

glittered-two-tone-bandage-dress

So we finally meet – the bandage dress and me, that is!  Honestly, anxiety struck me that I kind of upped the ante on my workouts ever since I agreed to collaborate with THE KEWL SHOP to choose from their awesome collection of Herve Leger-esque bandage dresses.

But I was wrong guys – you don’t need a killer bod to rock this dress!  The intricate styling and material of my glittered two-tone dress gave it a Spanx effect and that “second skin” feeling keeping all those flabs at bay.

And a dress as statement-grabbing as this one needs the most minimal accessories.  I guess a dangling bra strap (ala Carrie Bradshaw) gave it the effortless vibe I always strive to achieve when dressing up. :-)

And nothing can indeed be better than getting 15% off the entire collection at THE KEWL SHOP by using the promo code REDTAGCHIC at checkout! ♥

Party Style :: The Long Black Dress

long-black-dress

I can absolutely say that stepping out of my style comfort zone is one of the greatest blessings blogging has brought me.   Since I started blogging, I have always tried to up the anté as far as choosing outfits that will make it to the blog.  Versatility, I believe is the key to a more rewarding blogging experience.

And I think that I just might have pushed my style envelope a little bit farther and channeled my inner Angelina Jolie along the way – by wearing this sexy but elegant trumpet-shaped dress from my lovelies at TINY DEAL.  Sorry mom, but I just can’t resist the daring Hollywood vibe of this dress created by those sheer side panels (yes, a high-cut thong is a definite must-have in every blogger’s lingerie arsenal!)

P.S.  Except for the dress – everything I’m wearing here was shopped out of my closet including that BCBG Max Azria statement necklace which I have not worn since 2013.  And someone (that’s me!) hit the hair color bottle once again.  I thought I could do the ombré but I guess it’s not something that would make me really happy (according to my stylist/colorist). ♥

Party Style :: Dressy Fringes

ink-wash-painting-casual-tassel-v-neck-occasion-dress

To say that I love fringes or tassels is totally an understatement.  I have worn it in large and small doses in the blog and in real life.  And thanks to my latest collaboration with TINY DEAL – I was able to go all out on fringes again via this gorgeous statement occasion dress.

As in all my collaborations – seeing this dress online was a case of love (and size anxiety) at first sight but wearing it is definitely everlasting love.  I just can’t get over how it fit me like a glove (when in doubt I order large) and the sexy back tasseled details – not to mention the exquisite black and white ink wash painting all over. ♥
