Pink flamingo...

  
Dress: 1.State(old, similar style here, here and here) | 
Jacket: Sam Edelman(old, similar style here) |
Booties: Vince | Bag: Fendi | Sunglasses: Celine

Considering most people have Monday blues, including myself... 
I figured I'd post this ADORABLE dress today! I purchased this dress last year, around this time and some how kept it in my closet a whole year without wearing it, like it still had the tags on!! Crazy right?! I'm bummed it isn't available anymore, but it is so perfect for spring and summer, I had to wear this for my blog! I've linked a really similar dress(minus the adorable flamingo) above and here! I also have picked out some super cute pieces that have flamingos on them, they are located down below in the widget.

So I think dresses like this one can sometimes scare woman away since it is definitely showing off the curves...Which I'm not going to lie, I think that's probably why it stayed in my closet for a year. I have a curvy body type (if you couldn't tell uh hem.. :P) and I used to be very insecure about it.
Well, I have grown over the year and realized that you just need to own it! Be one with yourself and your body, be confident! If you love it and own it, everyone else will love it! 
I'm not sure how I got off on a rant about owning it, lol, but there you go. 
I hope everyone has a great week! Long weekend coming!! YAY! xx

Spring Outfit Inspiration...

 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 

...
So I finally downloaded the trial version of Adobe Photoshop. 
I was nervous I would not remember how to work the program since the last time I used it was back in high-school in my animation classes. Well after several hours of playing around I put this adorable Friday morning outfit inspiration together! I am dying for every piece I picked out (besides the My Burburry perfume, because I already have it and am in love with it). Shout out to my best friend for her birthday that was this past Wednesday! I love you Samantha. I hope you all enjoy your weekend! xx

Blush x Black


Dress: BCBGeneration(old, similar style here) | 
Jacket: Sam Edelman(old, similar style here) | Lace Bralette: Free People
Booties: Free People(old, similar style here) | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff
Necklace: Urban Outfitters

... 

Happy Friday once again, the week just flew by! 
Today I am posting an edgier look with touches of feminine. I love the mix of black leather and pink lace, the leather completely transforms the look. Since living in Texas is so hot, jackets are usually a no-go, so I think its fun to have the lace bralette detail showing in the back of the dress whenever you are not wearing some type of jacket or sweater, it just gives the outfit another layer (this detail also looks great with tank tops). 
This Sunday is Mother's Day and my family has planned a great day for my mom! She was trying to get me to spill the beans of where we are going to brunch on Sunday, she wants to make sure she dresses appropriately.  ;) Still didn't tell her but I know she will love it. 
Any one else keeping secrets for Mother's Day? xx

eShakti...









Top: eShakti% | Jeans: Joe's | Flats: Valentino |
Bag: Fendi | Sunglasses: Celine | Watch: Movado

... 

Happy Monday Everyone! 
I'm so excited that I've been introduced to this amazing company, eShakti. Their super innovative philosophy is so convenient and amazing for woman that want to customize their clothing to fit their body. The top that I'm wearing I customized to my height and I changed the length of the top from hip length to lower hip length so it looks closer to a tunic. I thought this top was adorable to begin with, so there wasn't much else I wanted to adjust. I could have changed the neck line and the sleeve length as well. Obviously you could do the other option, which is to leave the item as is and order it with the normal 0-36W sizing. The top fits, of course, true to size which I expected since it was altered based on my height. 
There are so many pieces that are so great, I've picked out some of my favorites and linked them here, here, here, and here. There are plenty more great options at www.eShakti.com! If you use the coupon code "thesilkdiaries" at your checkout you'll get 10% off when you shop between 5/2/16 - 5/29/2016.
Follow their Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest with all their latest styles for real fashion for real people. xx
