In my closet there are a couple of staples:
- Jeans: skinnies, boot cut, boyfriend, ankle cut, distressed and dark wash.
- Sweatshirts: zip-up, hoodie, athletic, and every variety in between.
- Tanks/camis: white, nude, black, gray, green, navy, purple, and orange.
All of these things I wear regularly, and I don't mind having multiples of. I like them in all styles and cuts. They go with everything.
Tanks and cami's are one of the things that I most diligent about keeping in my closet since I wear them pretty much every day. I wear them on their own, under shirts a little too sheer, and with kimonos and cardigans. I like them in every length. Their versatility is what makes them so great! But one of the things I hate is when they ride up or they are too short. But then I found a NikiBiki.
What in the world is a NikiBiki you might ask? It's an amazing cami that is designed to specifically battle not riding-up and rolling over the course of your day. Plus, they are made of a super soft material that breathes...unlike so many of their cotton counterparts. My favorite are the extra long tanks that I wear with leggings and under maxi's. (They hide your butt and help to slim) The regular length cami's and tanks are also not too short...something that tends to drive me nuts! NikiBiki changed everything about the way I bought and wore tanks, and I won't wear anything else! They are simply the best.
If you are a tank and cami wearer, and are looking for that perfect one, look no further! The NikiBIki that we carry at Lustatotenterrara will be the only one that you'll ever want to wear. (Can be found in our "Intimates" section.) Be sure to get yours today!!
After posting about last weeks' Fashion Fail Friday (#fff) winner, Kara Willis, we definitely found a few of you realizing that we were serious about giving away $25 gift cards to the girl with the best photo. We even told you that we would give away a 15% off discount to those who entered and ended up on the blog, but didn't win. However, this week we only received 1 entry...which made it easy for us to choose a winner. Or winners I should say.
We have 2 winners this week, because they are in the same photo! Ladies and gentlemen, please meet Brienne Barnes and her sister, Erin Love. Brienne sent us this photo, and we hope that Erin knew about it! When we first say this photo, we chuckled at the throwback to decades ago....then we laughed, but for a different reason. We laughed because the jean shirt that Brienne is wearing is now "back in style" (we use the term "style" very loosely) and can be found at your local Urban Outfitters, no collar and all. She is now a beautiful wife and mother to a couple very cute kids, so we hope that this $25 gift card is used well! (Get a cute date night outfit!)
As for Erin, she is a little less style-savvy in what looks to us like gym clothes. The super-bang hairstyle (I remember those days well) is also not uber-stylish, but back then, everyone had it! She has grown into not only a stylish woman today, but a stunning one at that! She will receive a $25 gift card to spend on herself as well, and she doesn't have to share it with her sister!
Thanks for sending us this photo ladies and for letting us take a quick glimpse into your past, and congrats on the win! Use your money wisely and know that there are tons of cute clothes and accessories just waiting to join your respective closets!
Remember that we are doing this giveaway every week, and all you have to do to enter to win is send us your pic at email@example.com. You can send your photo anytime until thursday at 9pm to be entered, and if you don't win the $25, you can still win 15% off your next purchase! It's really that easy!
Don't be shy! And thanks for the #FFF
When we told you recently that we went to Dallas and were ridiculously excited about the new designers that we found, we weren't kidding! And guess what? Inventory is flowing in and we can't get enough! There are new tops, skirts, dresses, pants, and accessories that will make you swoon!
We really wanted to take Lustatotenterrara not only fashion forward, but into a world that really defines who we are. We want to offer you all of those great closet staples that never get old, all while expanding your ability to think outside the box. In doing that, we have taken every new item and styled it with accessories, and given you the ability to see a complete style...and hopefully help you see it in a new light (and in your closet). We all know that seeing an article of clothing on a rack is much harder to envision on ourselves than it is if we see it walking down the runway or in a well laid out catalog spread.
Our team favorite so far has been this mustard-colored printed tunic by a'reve. This tunic boasts not only a bold color, but a beautiful gray feather print and gray crocheted color detail. It can be worn as both a dress and a tunic (fancy name for long shirt), and we paired it with a pair of brown leather booties and our panama hat. But don't think that you can't throw on a pair of skinny jeans and flip flops with this. It's versatile and a stand-out winner in our books! It fits amazing and would look great on every body type. This is a must-have for every style-savvy woman's closet!
Next on our list was this ultra-feminine coral dress by a new company we fell in love with: Timing. Though this dress may seem simple to you, we think it's understatedly chic. It's fully lined, has an elastic wait, and scoops at the neck in the front and back. The pleating and cap sleeves make the dress flattering and modest. We paired this dress with a vintage pin necklace that really makes a statement! We added this dress to our closet as a great Easter dress...but it's also easily carried over into an everyday dress with flats or wedges.
While we did add a few new designers to our list of favorites, a couple companies continue to impress us and bring great styles consistently. One of those companies is Blupepper. This scalloped edge ultra-intricate top is one of those tops we just couldn't pass-up. We were obsessed. The delicate detail of the shirt is so understatedly beautiful, we can't stop looking at it. It is definitely a stand-out piece and a must-have for your closet.
Lastly, with both Memorial Day and the 4th of July just around the corner, we couldn't pass up this American flag shirt by another new company to get excited about, Classic. It's a straight-forward knit that is perfect for summer! This shirt is sure to stand out at any holiday party, or stand alone with your favorite jeans or shorts. It will take your closet up that notch that you've been looking for! And, for our British friends, we have a Union Jack version for you!
We hope that you're as excited about these new looks as we are...just don't miss out on any of items that you love because sizes are limited and they always go quickly!
