Fourth of July x Legally Blonde and Brunette
fourthofjulythestylesaucejpg1

Happy Summer!!!! I'm super excited about the next few posts which are going to be dedicated entirely to Fourth of July fashion. I've teamed up with a great friend of mine, Shelley Buckner of Legally Blonde and Brunette .

Basically this shoot was no fun at all ;). The whole idea was to actually reenact what an epic 4th of July would be like- from drinking Moet on a sailboat to playing with fireworks on the beach! For clothes we (obviously) kept to a red, white, and blue theme and wanted it to be actual looks we would wear while lounging on a boat, playing on a dock, or going to a BBQ. While I live on the beach, 4th of July has always been one of my favorite holidays and is always the welcoming of Summer. We had a really good time shooting this and putting tons of fun patriotic looks together for you. I hope my 4th of July is ACTUALLY as fun as this shoot was! Thanks Shelley for being a part of it and can't wait to share the rest of the looks from Part 2 with you tomorrow! 

How will you all be celebrating America's birthday? Leave a comment and let me know!

Boho Spring

White blouses. Gladiators. Lately I can't get enough of either of these things. There's always something so fresh about a white shirt- whether it be a tee shirt or flowy top like I'm wearing for today's post. I accidentally just bought 4 in a row before I even realized my obvious obsession for lack of color in the top region. Gladiators that lace up to the knees have been a fixation of mine actually since last spring and I was elated to see them be such a big trend for Spring/ Summer 2015. While I can't afford the Chloe ones I've been lusting after for the past few months without maybe being homeless, I opted for these Zara ones. These sandals are actually very comfortable and have been fitting in easily with a lot of my wardrobe. I always have a penchant for boho inspired pieces-- I do live in Venice Beach after all.

The bag in this look is a vintage 1990's Louis Vuitton epi leather that I just bought off of Tradesy, and I am obsessed with it. It is the perfect size and color to go with everything. I usually opt for a cross-body or shoulder bag so this purse is actually a totally new silhouette for me but I am loving the change! There is something so nice about a structured bag that adds a pulled together element to anything that you're wearing. It's perfect for adding a polished element to a slouchy or boho outfit, or you can wear it with a more business-y look too! I can't wait to try it with more outfits and shoe combos!

 

Song of the week is Rivver- Am I Ok feat. Milk and Bone. It's a great down tempo chill song and it's brand new on my Spotify playlist on the home page as well. Enjoy!

People are always asking me, "What do you do with all your clothes? Where do you put it all? How do you keep so much stuff?"

Well the answer to that is, I don't. Living in a small apartment with my boyfriend, dog, and cat is great and all, but there plain and simply is a huge lack of closet space. While I love my little family of 4, it is hardly a stylist's dream. I am constantly buying, selling, donating, and gifting things to friends when I can no longer wear them or keep them in my closet. While it's important to me to keep my favorite basics and essentials for styling shoots on hand, there are things that I must part with at the end of the day. This is where Tradesy comes in. It has basically saved my life. It gives me the opportunity to list my clothing, shoes, handbags, etc all in one online marketplace. This genius idea originally started with wedding dresses, something that can obviously only be worn once. Almost the same principal applies when running a fashion blog and being a wardrobe stylist; most of the time I can only use or wear things once or twice for shoots. When I can't use it anymore, Tradesy gives me just the place to resell them.

Did I mention I also buy things on Tradesy? It's the BEST to get deals on new or vintage handbags like this Chanel one I am currently coveting. As I'm not always blessed in the financial department, it's a great place to get deals on luxury items for a bargain. Running until the end of today they're having a huge Black Friday sale, so prices are even better than usual. They've also recently introduced payment plans so if you'd like to purchase an expensive handbag, for example, you can pay it off over 3 months instead of right away. I don't know about you all but that's making that Chanel bag a whole lot more obtainable. None of you would actually plan on me not shopping any more, would you?!?! Check out below some of the stuff I'll have available from my closet, and I'll keep updating it as well! Use this link to get $25 off your first order of $100 or more! Happy shopping! xo, The Style Sauce
