Lovely Lace~

   Hey guys!!! I can't believe April is already here! It's crazy how fast this year is already going by! Last night, I finished my last post on the instagram account @Faviana_stylist. It was definitely a fun experience and I really am going to miss posting there! I'm not sure if I am making it to the next round, (I'll find out around the end of April/beginning of May) but I do want to give a few thank you's to some of my  followers who I noticed helped me out!

I wanted to give a big thank you to-

I really appreciate you guys liking/comment/following my post!! 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 After my last purchase at Sugarlips, I decided to try ordering from them again. This time I chose the Pretty Pleated dress.



Unlike last time, I chose to get a size small instead of an extra small and I must say, it fits a lot better! The chest area is a bit loose, but I would rather take that over a tight fit on my ribs/waist. I know I say this about everything I get, but I am in love with this dress!! The color is an off white/almost cream looking color with a black belt on the waist. The design of the dress is gorgeous. It's a lovely lace pattern which I love because it looks so elegant! 



Taking these photos was a lot of fun! I loved being outside with the sun shining down on me! It still was chilly outside because the winds were ~15-17 mph, but the sun made up for it! Our grass is finally growing as well and I love it! It's such a rich green color and it reminds me of spring. I hope I actually get to experience a real spring this year. Living in the Northeast usually means bitter/snowy winters (which I kinda like) until March and then out of nowhere, sizzling hot summer temperatures. We tend to skip over spring weather and jump from winter to summer. If you know me, you know how much I dread hot temperatures. I don't want to go outside when it's 80+ outside, but at the same time, spending all day inside with an air conditioner doesn't sound too pleasing either. 



For my outfit today, I paired my Sugarlips dress with my black flats. For jewelry, I wore a gold bracelet and a rose gold colored ring. I really liked the way my gold bracelet contrasted with the dress. For my nails, I am  wearing the color Tart Deco by Essie and on my lips I have on the lipstick in the color Flame by Covergirl. This nail polish color is very pretty! In my opinion, it looks like a coral color with a touch of salmon. 




This photo is from my Instagram, but I have to say, I have been experimenting with making collages with pictures of my outfits! I find it to be an easy way to show all the detail of my outfit in one picture. 

What do you guys think? Do you like the concept of placing more than one photo together?

  9. Gorgeous! I have been keeping an eye out for the perfect lacy feminine dress and this is so cute! You wear it so elegantly! I love your ring too! Also, I quite enjoy the collage for your outfits. It's creative and very eye catching, and I agree that it is a good way to showcase the different aspects of your outfit in one photo. <33 ^__^b

  19. I love the dress! It's gorgeous!! :) Weird question, but does someone take your pictures for you or do you set a timer on your camera? The pictures always look so pretty!! The first pic is awesome, it looks like it was taken professionally.

    1. Aww thanks!! Your comment made me super happy! haha
      It's not a weird question at all and I'll answer this question on your blog too b/c you might not see it here =)

      I take ~90% of the photos by myself. I just place it on something such as a chair and I set it to a self timer. It takes a while, but I find it to work nicely!

  27. I absolutely love this outfit of yours, so feminine AND yes, I can see the green tiny grass on your garden! Makes everything looks two times better! I think it should still be pretty chilly but it looks like a fun day/photography session and especially with a new lovely dress, everything must be near perfect for you <3

    Hahha I think all of us have a little bit (or maybe more) of Penny in us, who says girls don't love to game huh? >D
