There is not a single thing I don't like about this dress from AQAQ: the colors, the print and the shape are just perfect. Love that the waistline is curved to the front making the skirt appear even fuller. I definitely feel like a real lady in this dress :) Accessorized with bright shoes, fun mirrored sunglasses and a lovely key necklace from Saressa Designs with matching color stone.

I recently found 2sides2me app, which is a photo sharing app for beauty and fashion addicts (like me!). The fascinating feature of it is that you can showcase your before and after photos in one space (without the need of scrolling down, just tap and hold the first image to reveal the second one!) and ask for your followers' opinions (i.e. which outfit, garment, make up color to choose).You can also showcase the change in your style or appearance (longer to shorter hair, before and after make-up application etc.) It sounds complicated but it's actually very fun and easy to do! Also, since the app is brand new the community is very engaging, which is why I am so excited about it.
On top of everything 2sides2me is holding a contest (starting today and ending May 4th), where by uploading your two-sides (before and after fashion photo) with hashtag #ootd you can win a Michael Kors Bag!!! Search 2sides2me in the app store or click on this link to download.
And by the way, check out my "after" photo on the app as well ;) My username is DianaMarks. Happy Monday!
Slip: Victoria's Secret.

You might remember how I was raving about Edward Roth New York during Fashion Week last year, so here I am obsessing over it again. This time it is their new art piece "Myth and Grace" - no, you can't call this item just a dress, it truly IS a work of ART (like all garments Edward Roth has to offer). The beautiful color palette, interesting combination of materials (leather and silk?) and artistic imagery makes Edward Roth NY not only stand out, but be the most unique, fashion forward and exquisite brand there is. Happy Easter!

Most of you have probably seen this look on my Instagram last week. Nothing to add here: the denim jumpsuit from Joe's Jeans is so trendy and hip (and so versatile!) that even adding only one color to the look made it already awesome :) By the way, it looks equally good with nothing on top and a pair of cool flats ;)
But let's talk more about my hair. I get asked all sorts of questions about my hair and here is a little insight into my styling routine.
First, I should state that my hair is very fine and thin, and therefore pretty hard to style. On top of that, if I leave my hair to dry naturally after I wash them, I will look like I went partying to a rock concert for three days in a row.
It's extremely crucial for me not only to have a good quality styler, but also to ALWAYS have it on me! I can't go one day (not even talking about traveling!) without a styler, otherwise my hair will be a mess and I won't be able to leave the house for public safety reasons :)
I tried many brands (some worked better than others), but recently I got to work with ghd and try out their new ghd ECLIPSE styler. The idea is that it styles faster with less heat! Saving time and less damage to the hair? I could definitely benefit from that! I never straighten my hair completely, I just style it in a desired shape and direction, so ghd is a perfect choice since it works so fast and so effectively.

I am excited to take part in Lulu's fashion face off contest. Lulu's wants to know which spring trend will reign supreme this season. Follow along each weekend for a new trend report and find out below how you can score a $500 Lulu's gift card!
I chose this beautiful yet simple little black dress to represent #TeamSkater. Gold accessories add so much glam to the look and pastel shoes and clutch complete the feminine theme.

This weekend I did quite a bit of shopping and, like any blogger does, I immediately used an opportunity to wear what I got =) These heels from Zara are my latest obsession and even though they don't match by color I think they go perfectly well with with the awesome Kate Spade bag. And the Tory Burch sunnies are for sure going to be summer go-tos.

Felt a little blue yesterday and decided to brighten up my day by wearing that same color. I forgot how much I love blue - all shades of it are so beautiful and calming. This crochet top from Sensation of Night is an interesting piece to throw over a plain tee or a tank top to add a feminine touch to the look. And how cool is that bag from Marc Jacobs? Just the bag alone can immediately change my mood =)

Scalloped shorts are back in the game this spring and I couldn't be happier. Last year I embraced the trend fully (as seen here and here) and I still think that scallop edges are very feminine which fits my style perfectly. I am not a big fan of pink color, but this top from Lulu's has such a beautiful and rich shade that I just couldn't resist it. Added polka dots to continue with the feminine theme and finished with a grey blazer and matchy scarf. Happy Friday!

Spring is in full swing and I am happy to be able to wear my favorite overalls! These particular ones from Lulu's have such a fun and refreshing print. Wore them with neon heels which I bought last year. When I was buying them I thought I'd never be able to style them, but they just add a touch of glamour to so many looks that I keep coming back to them more often than I expected.
