Why We Love Ivy from 90210



Gillian Zinser plays laid back surfer Ivy on 90210, weather on the show or not we love her bohemian street style. Her hair always tousled like she just walked off the beach, we just cant get enough of her relaxed look! Off the camera she does a great job mixing vintage pieces with new ones, and her indie clothing style is so chick! She mixes hanging fits with tight cuts and she accessorizes really well by stacking up bangles and bracelets and rocking long printed handbags and brimmed hats. Stock up on trendy accessories with bangles and cuffs by shopping messesofdresses.com new selection of accessories.

Spring Break - Nothing More on My Mind!!

Spring break is here and the packing frenzy begins. What should be packed? What’s a must fashion necessity? How will I stand out from them all?

Just a small list and you can be well on your way. Firstly, knowing that we are all most likely to spend our time on the beaches, make sure to pack lots of swimsuits. Take pieces that you can mix and match with (it will extend your wardrobe). A couple of cover-ups for your swimsuits, which you can vary with a flirty skirt such as the Kylie Skirt by Jack by BB Dakota with a cute top, or you can throw on a cute kimono that just about covers all the necessary parts and just makes you look fab. I was thinking the Manda Dress by Jack by BB Dakota does just that. Don’t forget your lotion and your sungees!



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are also going to be night outs that you would like to look your best at. Make sure you include some ultra hot trendy dresses with great pops of color. Like the Delaney Dress by Jack by BB Dakota. You can pair it up with a great pair of wedges that you can wear from night to day (a versatile pair makes for less packing) Look hot at the beach with the Ionia Wedge Sandal by Chinese Laundry and pair it up with that sassy dress later on. Regardless you can pair it with almost anything.



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So Spring-breakers hope this helped your packing tasks. Have lots of fun and don’t forget to stay hydrated with lots of fluids

XOXO

Bloggers We Adore: Laura from On The Racks

On The Racks

Im currently hooked on Laura from On The Racks as my constant dose of street style and fashion inspiration. Based out of San Francisco, laura has amazing knack for style, and I constantly find myself gaping over her rad collection of amazing style shots. Laura graciously agreed to share with us a little bit about herself and her style. Read what she has to say and don't forget to check out her blog On The Racks and show her some love!
You have a great sense of style, whats your secret?  Who are your style icons?

First of all, thank you! :) I don't think I really have a style secret -- I just dress for my mood. I like to combine different styles...mixing edgy with feminine, for example. Also I'm all about pairing affordable pieces and vintage finds with an occasional designer splurge! My style icons are probably Alexa Chung, Kate Moss, and Edie Sedgwick, to name a few.


What are your hobbies when you are not blogging?

Hmm. Well I work full time, so blogging is kind of my main hobby outside of that! :)

Aside from work and blogging, I like to shop and go to the park with my boyfriend and our pup, and drink wine!


What are your favorite blogs that you follow?

My favorite blogs are Fashion Toast, Disarming Darling, Trop Rouge, and Holier Than Now, to name a few. I have dozens upon dozens of blogs that I follow regularly!


What is your favorite dress or accessory from MessesOfDresses.com

I LOVE the Jessica Dress by BB Dakota -- the green color is amazing. I'm loving bright, fun shades for spring and this one is just perfect!

Mix it up-From winter to spring!

Dont let seasons define your style!! Do you love a dress that you already own? You can still wear it whether its winter, spring or summer and we will show you how! In the winter you warm up your outfit with cardigans, blazers, tights and boots! In the spring, stash those tights, in the back of your closet and come out fresh with your bare legs, sandals and carefree style! In the summer those cardis and blazers join your tights! Check out our celebrity inspiration Jessica Alba! Her indie dress is fabulous and she carries it well from cooler to warmer weather! I love how she throws her hair down, puts on a breezy cardigan and peeps her toes!
