But I can't give up on style, especially since Style Bible included me in their Pregnant & Pretty list the last time I was pregnant. I got a reputation to hold up, darn it! So for this second pregnancy, I had a blast checking out some stylish wear from Mango's Fall/Winter collection. Mango very kindly lent me a few pieces to try out at home and these are the winning looks that I'm imagining will be perfect for the following occasions this Christmas season:
For when I'm out gift shopping
|navy-and-white striped knit dress (P2750), |
nude sandals (P5,950)
Totally loving this dress! It's very see-through, though, so you conservative sweethearts might want to wear a slip underneath. As for me, with our weather and the crush of the holiday shoppers, I think the thin and comfy knit is perfect!
|blue tote (P1950), aviators (P995), bangles (P845 for two)|
The roomy faux leather tote is perfect for shopping! And I love its navy color--classic but not basic. The plastic bangles are fun and pulls the whole look together. And what's more classic than aviators? This look is so simple, easy and stylish!
For Noche Buena
|green dress (P3250)|
I totally fell in love with this dress! It's so incredibly simple and yet sexy! I can wear it to any family reunion and look covered up enough for the oldies but chic enough to intrigue the younger cousins!
|crystal-embellished minaudiere (P5450)|
It's such a pretty dress! I can't get over it. It's the perfect canvas to show off accessories like golden bracelets, bib necklaces or big earrings. For this look, I chose a golden minaudiere studded with crystals.
|suede red-and-gold sandals (P5950)|
And to complete the whole Noche Buena look, why not a pop of red and gold on my feet? The red suede goes perfectly well with the mossy green of the dress. I love this look!
For parties with friends
|red dress (P3250)|
Yep, I really loved that green dress that my third look is the same dress but in red!
By the way, that's how you're supposed to sit on a bar stool--the toe of your shoe supports your balance. Do not hook your heel on the bar because if you lose your balance or need to get away from a pesky drunk, that heel will get you in trouble. Oh, and keep knees together!
Back to the dress! The material of this dress is gorgeous. I'm an absolute sucker for quality cloth. A lot of dresses look pretty in photos but if you look closely, the material is cheap and thin. Not very nice. But because the cloth quality of this dress is amazing, the red is vibrant and deep. You should see it in real life--the red makes you stand out!
Big shades are a must! I always love how shades make you look like a celebrity instantly!
|bangles (P845, set of two)|
And for a pop of color, I am loving these sunny yellow bangles! They just really complete the whole look.
|leopard platforms (P5450)|
And because it's the festive season and you're with friends, do offset the simplicity of the dress with some wild footwear! I chose leopard print (haha, that's as wild as I can get!) but you can pair this dress with sky high heels, graphic art platforms, peep-toe booties or just about anything!
Thanks, Mango! Now I know what I want for my birthday--that red dress! Or maybe the green. But the blue one is pretty, too! Ladies, what do you think?
