4 Simple & Stylish Staples!

Plain White Tee
Do not underestimate the power of the white T…because in all honesty, it isn’t “just a plain white Tee.” Come summer, throw on a pair of denim shorts. Come fall, wear it under a leather jacket and accessorize it with a cute scarf and then come winter, wear it with a blazer. It is so basic that some of us forget how much value it adds to different ensembles. I highly recommend owning one of these ladies; they are essential and they are practical; it’s a staple piece of wardrobe you don’t want to miss out on.

A Pump-ful wardrobe
Every woman must have the power pair of black pumps. They are simple, classical shoes, but they are undoubtedly stylish and necessary.  Whether they are suede, leather or patent leather, wedge heel or block heel, open toe or not, they can all be worn fashionably for a casual look, or dressed up for a professional look….PUMP IT UP LADIES!

Blue Jeans  
I’m a denim fanatic. A lady can wear jeans and still be the sexiest woman in the room. I like to think of denim as fish in the sea; once you find the right one, believe me when I say this, it’ll become your soul mate. The important thing is to invest time in trying different cuts: bell-bottoms, skinny or straight, baggy, flare or boot cut…it doesn’t matter. What matters is how they compliment your figure and how fabulous you feel in them!

Rockstar Shades  
From designer boutiques to little stalls; it’s crazy how many different styles and models of sunglasses there are out there. There are oversized-round ones, wayfarers, John Lennons style, cat eyes, aviators and probably a lot more I don’t even know! It’s a crucial accessory and I think when you have the right pair, with whatever outfit, you will look and feel like a rockstar. Mademoiselle Coco Chanel said, “The best color in the whole world is the one that looks good on you.” Well I say, the best sunglasses in the world are the ones that look good on you!

NET A LA MODE's Oscars Edition

Dressed for the Oscars, as Oscars!


(Left to Right: Stacy Keibler in Marchesa & Meryl Streep in Lanvin)

Stacy Keibler, I mean seriously, only you can compensate for the Oscar Clooney didn’t end up taking home. Slender and sexy are all I could think of when I look at you in that dress. Meryl Streep wore Lanvin’s first ever eco-friendly gown and looked absolutely glamorous. Her choice was age-appropriate and she is simply wonderful with everything she does….such a refined woman.

Angles that Reigned

(Left to Right: Gwyneth Paltrow in Tom Ford & Rooney Mara in Givenchy)

Many may not agree with me, but these two were my absolute favorite. Their soft dresses speak modest beauty and they glided the red carpet like graceful swans.

Bold & Beautiful

(Left to Right: Angelina Jolie in Versace & Milla Jovovich in Ellie Saab)
The gowns were simple but tasteful; sculpted to perfection on their mannequin figures. Their luscious red lips were the ultimate accessory.

Who was your Oscar favorite? Do tell....
