modern metallics

Today I wanted to discuss my love for one of Fall’s biggest trends, Metallic. Metallic can be incorporated into your wardrobe as a statement piece or an everyday piece. Of course metallic doesn’t always mean super shiny, super bold and super obvious. There are so many great pieces that have hints of metallic so if you’re not ready to take the plunge, you don’t have to!

Style Crush: Amal Alamuddin

Well, technically, Amal Clooney (still getting used to that!). Since I first saw images of this woman with womanizer George Clooney I was instantly intrigued. She was classy, educated, and successful. She projects confidence and doesn’t sell her body for attention. I have mad respect for this woman and as I’ve followed her through the media, I’ve seen her ever-evolving style. I.Am.Obsessed!

Amal’s style is classic and extremely chic. If I could (believe me, I would) rock almost everything I’ve seen her in. Her wedding style has been so on point, I am left speechless after every photo I see her. This woman truly has it all: brains, success, beauty, confidence, and Mr. George Clooney.

This Giambattista Valli dress went from runway to the streets of Italy. I need this dress in my life, however, I’m pretty sure it’s going to be sold out world-wide. Thanks Amal (it’s okay, my wallet forgives you).

you’re so dark

It’s Monday! Yes, I’m actually really happy about it. This weekend was beyond perfect. I’ve been overworked the past few weeks & just needed some “I don’t want to use my brain” time. Saturday night I was able to play an array of classic arcade games. Sunday, I went to the Los Angeles County Fair. Oh. My. God. I ate almost everything in sight and went on all the rides (I got dizzy a lot but it was totally worth it!). It felt so good to just be carefree and enjoy the moment. I really must say, a proper day off really is the best medicine.

Anyhow, today’s outfit is what I wore to work. It’s finally Fall so I tried to captured the Fall with the photography. I’m a sucker for leather pants, and this deep oxblood color is a great statement piece. I paired these pants with a black & white striped blouse to give it some edge but still keep it professional. What are your thoughts on leather pants?

Hope you all have a fantastic week!photo 1-9 Read more

Happy Friday folks!

I am so happy to be back to blogging more full-time. With school done and being well-adjusted back into work, I am able to prioritize blogging and really get my creative outlet going again. It’s been a busy week but I can’t complain since I hate being idle. However, I’m really excited about the weekend because it’s going me & Netflix all night long tonight. Oh, you may have noticed that Le Fashion Monster got a face lift, but if you go to the home page, I added a tab called SHOP so you can shop some of my favorites pieces I’ve found online, as well as products I’m wearing.

Today’s post is one of my personal favorites, I found this turtleneck crop (amongst my drawers and drawers full of black tops) and I had to immediately throw it on. I paired the top with my favorite pants ever (believe it or not, they make me look like I got a booty! Total win with these) from Evleo.

I also am obsessing over these Shoedazzle “Yves” heels. They not only look very expensive, they are super comfortable. I trotted around town for 9 hours in these babies. True story.

i bet you look good on the dancefloor

Happy Monday!

The past month has been extra hectic, and I sincerely apologize for the constant lack of posting as of late. I’m trying to juggle my career and blogging simultaneously but sometimes it’s get really challenging after long work weeks to take pictures and get dressed up. Also, when I do, it’s usually too late to take a picture or I just completely forget.  I do post almost daily to Instagram (@LeFashnMonster) so be sure to check that out when you can.

Anyhow, I do hope you all have been having a lovely start to the summer. I’m slowly getting ready for my trip Istanbul, Turkey in early August!

Today’s post was all about having fun. I was actually inspired my side swept full bangs today so decided to play off them. I know it’s a little menswear retro, but sometimes it’s fun to really just dress up.

Orange is the new black

Okay, it’s not really the new black, but the T.V is show premiering it’s new season this week…and for that, I’m happy! I know it’s been awhile, but it’s been one roller coaster of a month. As much as I love fashion and blogging, the mental health field is where my career and future lies. I have working toward building my name in the mental health community and working through getting my intern number and bulking up on clients to get my 3,000 hours done so I can open my practice within the next two years.

Anyhow, I’ll be posting more often though. I do miss the excitement of dressing up and not wearing suits all day!

snakeskin

Happy Monday ya’ll!

I’ve been on the hunt for unique and comfortable leggings that don’t break the bank and that don’t “look” like leggings. Thankfully my search is over and I am excited to share with you this brand that will give you legging heaven! Evleo is a brand that is fast-growing and one of my personal favorites. Their leggings are so chic and comfortable and reasonably priced. Definitely check them out, you’ll thank me later.

My personal favorite are these white snakeskin beauties! You’ll see a lot of posts with them, I don’t think I can take them off!

P.S I’ve teamed up with Evleo to giveaway 2 tickets to Coachella (Weekend 2). Wednesday’s post will have the contest details! So exciting!
