2 Ways to Wear a Black Romper
The Style Sauce // How to Style a black romper two ways // fashion ideas

Whenever you need a fool proof outfit to take you from day tonight, opting for all black is a good idea. Better yet, if you have a great black playsuit or romper in your closet, you can style it in multiple ways for multiple occasions. 

Today I'm showing you two ways to wear a black romper, one idea is with heels for more of a date night vibe, and the other with over the knee boots for a day to night look. Both looks are all black, but the laciness of the romper definitely feels appropriate for the holidays, doesn't it?

Which look do you like more?! Check them out below. 

Style idea 1:

  • With heels and a leather jacket

2 Ways to Wear a Red Wrap Dress For The Holidays
the style sauce // red dress // fashion blog // womens fashion ideas // date night look

I love red. I wear it year round, but it definitely makes an even bigger splash in my closet during the holidays. That being said, there's nothing like a red dress to make you feel like a real life dancing girl emoji, and I love the two I'm wearing in this post which are both from Someday's Lovin' (coincidentally, btw, not a sponsored post).

In this post,  check out two ways to style a red wrap dress. Both with a leather jacket, but one for a day about the town, and the other look for a more lady-like date night approach with heels. For day time, I opted for a more midi length satin dress, and for date night I love the crushed velvet option that shows a little more skin, which i accessorized with my favorite patent leather shoes right now from Tamara Mellon (they're called the Rendezvous).

10 of the Best L.A. Based Instagram Accounts
Taking Instagrammable content is a work of art on it's own. Read here for my 10 favorite Instagram accounts out of Los Angeles right now.

Taking Instagrammable content is a work of art on it's own. Read here for my 10 favorite Instagram accounts out of Los Angeles right now.

Have you ever read the book "Steal Like an Artist" ? If not, I'd highly recommend it. It seems to be a book I always go back to when I'm having a creative block and need some serious inspiration. The premise is basically this: whatever you admire in other artists take a portion of, and make it your own in a unique way. Don't be confused: this does NOT mean go steal other people's work, but to more find aspects of inspiration in other people you think are killing it, and reinterpret it. In general, it's really helped me to become a (somewhat) successful blogger to follow some bloggers and other creatives that I think have bomb-ass content. I also take style cues from old movies, musicians, artists, all around bad asses, and obviously other stylists' work as well. 

The reason this ties into today's post is that I also do this on Instagram. I follow a lot of accounts that provide me with some sort of inspiration that has made my own content better. Some of these accounts have a lot of followers, and some of them do not, but the common denominator is that they're all inspirational to me in some way. 

Check out below my Top 10 L.A. Based Instagrams below for all the best food, travel tips, street style, and inspiration currently coming out of The City of Angels.

Food:

Carrera Cafe:

This café is known for L.A.'s favorite customizable lattes, and continues to grow in popularity. This place will write or design whatever you like on your cappuccino, and has beautiful natural light and white tables. As expected, it's every bloggers dream. Check it out for eye candy and a good cup of coffee. @carreracafe

Miss Foodie Problems:

My girl Corey over at Miss Foodie Problems never ceases to make me SO hungry. She eats at some seriously amazing spots, and a lot of them are off the beaten path. Not to mention, she's also an awesome cook and regularly features her creations on Snapchat.  Check her out at @missfoodproblems.

Infatuation LA:

While Infatuation has accounts all over the U.S., their LA account is clearly my favorite. They do a really great job of covering all the newest and best restaurants, and taking beautiful pictures along the way. They also feature other users' great content for an authentic round-up of some seriously great eateries. Follow them @infatuation_la

Photography:

Kimberly Genevieve:

It helps her middle name is my first name, but other than that her account speaks for itself. Her photos are beautiful , colorful, clean, and vibrant. She regularly produces really fabulous content and works on some great campaigns. Find her at @kimgenevieve

Style + Fashion

Levi Sawyer:

This awesomely talented menswear stylist/ human that I'm also honored to have as a friend creates some of the coolest fashion grams around. His style is colorful and original. He's a savvy vintage hunter, as well as a stylist for Farfetch, so he gets to play with lots of designer labels. Check him out at @tribecalledlevi

Brittany Xavier:

The creator of Thrifts and Threads has become quite famous but I've actually been following her since she had 20,000 followers and was in the running to win Bloglovin's "Breakthrough Blogger of the Year" award. Brittany won the award and never looked back, but I love her Instagram for it's multitudes of casual, but chic outfit ideas. Sure, it isn't the IG that has the most insanely beautiful photos and heavily photoshopped feed, but it's not trying to be. What Brittany has accomplished is an approachable blog that incorporates fashion and blogging tips with her every day Los Angeles life while looking chic doing it. Follow her @thriftsandthreads

Skatie Swimwear:

I recently found out about Skatie's line from fellow bloggers, and really fell in love with their suits and the fact that they're made from recycled fabric, which is SO important to me. Check them out for a very California vintage vibe with eco-friendly flair. @skatie_official

LA LIFE:  

Discover LA:

Discover LA is an all inclusive publication that is a great place to find events happening, news, and basically anything LA related. They also have tons of beautiful shots on their Instagram! If you're not from LA or looking for something to do, their website/ IG is a great place to start. @discoverLA

Caroline Juen:

The blogger behind Love and Loathing LA tells her Los Angeles story of food, fashion, and fun in a super down to earth and authentic way that I'm a HUGE fan of. She'll make you laugh in her IG stories and never takes herself too seriously which is refreshing in the world of IG narcissism. Her photos are also beautiful and really well articulated. To top it off, she always has the inside scoop on fun things to do in The City of Angels. Check her out at @loveandloathingLA

Whitney Leigh Morris:

While I don't know Whitney, we have been neighbors for quite some time over here on the Venice Canals. I love her point of view chronicling her life in a tiny canal cottage with her ever growing family. Her living space is beautiful and it's a useful account to follow for design ideas if you also have a small living area to work with. She has a really clean and pretty design aesthetic and you can find lots of tips on her blog. Check her out at @whitneyleighmorris

The Style Sauce:

Last, but not least, there's this REALLY amazing blogger she's so cool. and witty. and freaking fashionable... I just can't EVEN! OOOOOK, hi guys, it's me. BUT if you're not following me on Instagram, there's a lot of photos, inspirations, and conversations I like to have that aren't on my blog. Also, I've started hosting occasional GIVEAWAYS (oh hellllll yeah!) So, if you haven't already, follow me here :) @thestylesauce

I hope this post has inspired you to follow these great accounts, and go back to Instagram for inspiration. Sometimes it gives me great ideas and the boost I need to create more great content myself.
