Last Sunday my friends and I attended what The Hangover Brunch at Eiffel Society here in New Orléans 2040 St. Charles Ave. The ambiance was beautiful, the food was delicious and the movie The Hangover was playing on the big screen. It was from 11-5 and the day party started about 3 pm. It was life!!! After stuffing our faces and sipping on champagne and mimosa’s the DJ turned up New Orléans bounce music and everyone hit the dance floor! Talk about FUN!! I seriously didn’t want it to end but there’s always next month to continue the fun. And if you’re not certain on about what you should wear, I’m here to help!
So let’s get started, starting with myself. As we all know I’m a fan of mixing prints as I wore a nautical-inspired print dress one of my latest thrift store finds and my favorite floral Steve Madden ankle strap sandals. For my hair, I went for a simple pulled back look to show off more of my face. I wore simple stud earrings and a statement necklace from Classy Closet along with the (now sold out) Classy Closet Pink RichGirl Handbag & my statement LOVE ring is from F-21. I’m wearing a nude manicure and a hot pink pedicure both by Milani Nail Lacquer called “Vintage” and “Pink Pop.”
Face & Jewels!
Brunch dolls and I!
I pulled some Polyvore inspirations from my fabulous Instagram doll, Shundra. Her Polyvore is filled with so many beautiful styles & inspirations. She’s someone who’s definitely making a name for herself in the fashion industry & someone I’ll let style me any day (and I don’t say that often).
First Look: This is definitely my style! A Peplum top and a pencil skirt is effortlessly classy especially when you add mixed prints, a bold color lip and pumps, gold jewelry and a satchel handbag. This is a great look to go from brunch to a business meeting. It says I’VE ARRIVED & I’M HERE TO STAY!!!
Second Look: Rompers are always a good idea because it’s an easy item to style. Just add a pair of open toe sandals, a clutch & a statement belt to give your that hour-glass shape you’ve worked so hard on for the summer. Don’t forget simple accessories and a bold lip color then you’re brunch and day party ready.
Third Look: I love a good church look that can take you straight to brunch without having to go home and change. If you like, you can just remove the blazer for more of a laid back but still classy look. When accessorizing, you can never go wrong with a pair of pearls especially when it’s three string pearls (my personal favorite). Keep your other accessories simple because your pearls are the statement so a watch and a simple bow ring will do. Your handbag should always be a satchel or clutch with the kind of style and a pair of pumps with a bow on top just adds the finishing touches.
Fourth Look: It’s brunch so a floppy hat is definitely necessary. It adds a little something extra to your mixed print attire. Add a pair of pumps and a matching handbag to bring out the least amount of color in your wardrobe & gold simple accessories then you’re off to brunch to turn heads and answer questions about where you purchased this look.
Fifth Look: An A-line skirt is a wardrobe must-have for brunch. You can dress it up with a bow top or down with a t-shirt and let your accessories do the talking. I love how this Aldo Fennimore clutch & fun clashing print single sole sandal is offsetting this simple wardrobe. Pop it out with a bold lip color and simple accessories and then you’re on the move to brunch!!
