We have busy schedules, appointments, meetings, errands, work, time with friends, visiting with family, concerts, parties, BBQ's, walking the dog, running around and just living LIFE! The last thing I wan to do is worry about being comfortable while I go crazy trying to accomplish all I have to, and want to do. I am not a big shoe person, I honestly would be happy with a pair of flip-flops, motorcycle boots and sneakers as my whole collection but since I care so much about fashion and makeup shoes kind of make the whole look finished, just as much as accessories do. On that note when I have to wear heels or any uncomfortable dress shoes or even if I want to look fashionable and styled but without the hassle, I turn to my Ballasox!
Ballasox is unlike any other ballet flat, the Ballasox comes with a novelty: a soft lining in spandex, as if it were a sock that provides comfort for your feet. Foldable, each pair of shoe comes in an exclusive accessory package, making it a perfect item for traveling, use during the day, for a quick exchange of high-heeled shoe to a more comfortable one, to drive or even for a casual stroll through the city. They are confidence and support in one little fashionable flat!
I love how it comes with a little carrying bag to keep the Ballasox together and easy to bring along anywhere! Most purses now-a-days can fit them and it's great to take on the plane or throw in the car for foot emergencies! The varieties are endless and they are perfect for any style your into, to fit with your lifestyle and fahsion, what more can you ask for?!
In this fast paced dance of life, wouldn't you want to float along like a ballarina? Ballasox is more than fashion. It’s a second skin....
With the warm weather finally settling in, I'm sure you're getting ready for those summer nights out. Usually, this means you'll want a new outfit, or two... I love shopping just as much as the next girl, but I can't afford to shop as much as I would like. I like to get a new dressy number every once in a while; it makes your night out a tad bit more exciting. Wearing new clothes tends to have that effect... So luckily, I've been introduced to Ami Clubwear. This site has so many options for affordable & cute clothing, that you're bound to find something you like! And you'll like the price tag too.
There are plenty of club-worthy outfits on this site, but if the club isn't your thing, and you're just looking for a cute dress, don't shy away from this site. As I mentioned, there are so many styles, that you can find a dress for many occasions for this summer! Here are a couple dresses I tried and how you can style them this summer!
I love this dress for nights out/summer parties! The accessory options are endless! Plus, chunky sandals heels are bound to make this a knockout outfit. Also, add a statement red necklace, and you have a stylish (not at all cheesy) fourth of July outfit!
This second dress is very pretty in pink. I would combine this with a soft pink heel (with this dress it will help elongate your legs!), and then add some edge with sharp angled earrings and a bold black clutch. Of course, a dark smoky eye will take this outfit up a notch and have you ready for trouble!
I wouldn't necessarily think I would find these two dresses on a site for "club wear" but that's one of the reasons I like AMI Club Wear! There are so many affordable styles on this site that I'm sure you'll find plenty of new options for this upcoming summer season!...

The Spring 2014 color trends are absolutely gorgeous and I can't wait to start wearing some of the warm and bright colors! The clothing brand NIC+ZOE have amazing offerings when it comes to fashion and accessories and it was no problem for me to get creative when putting together my dream outfits for the Spring!

They are a brand that stays current with styles and colors and is very much deserving to be there and to be recognized for their forward thinking buisness!

Tis the season for sequined dresses, cocktail rings, and statement making accessories for a calendar full of holiday parties and events! Yes it can be quite fun getting together with friends, family members, and coworkers to share some laughs and cocktails but it can also be quite stressful to find the perfect ensemble for each gathering. As Lead Stylist here at Shoptiques.com I spend my days compiling versatile holiday looks that will have each customer standing out from the crowd in unique boutique curated pieces from around the world. Because let’s face it, the worst thing for us women is to show up somewhere feeling fabulous only to find someone else in the exact same thing.
If you’re headed to a significant other’s holiday work party….
Turn heads while still being conservative with a detailed body-con dress that features sleeves and a higher neckline.

Texturizing is like wearing a bold lip color. That being said, you want to minimize the rest of your outfit by wearing basic colors so the texturized item stands out like a centerpiece. For Jessica's look we made the textured sweater the show-piece and paired it with a simple white tank top and black leggings. For extra flair you can match it with black pleather leggings, which we got from H&M.
To dress it up stick with textured earrings and forego any other jewelry. Jessica is wearing vintage snakeskin dangle earrings.
For makeup: Bold eyes and a nude lip is ideal with this particular look and color paring.
Sweater featured is from H&M - Fall 2013 season

I had the pleasure of experiencing the site, which is well organized and I was thrilled to see the models on the site were actual woman sizes which made it so much easier for me to choose clothing since I had a similar body shape. I received the Snakeskin Contrast T (which is the photo above), which is now sold out and no longer available. Part of the charm of being a trendsetter :) You see something you like you buy or it might not be there when you go back. I like this idea because, like the company even said, it encourages you to start the trend and be one of the few to own it first!
This site is ideal for fashion leaders and innovators to display their own compilation of clothing trends.
