Welcome to the Style Sessions Fashion Link Up! I am delighted to let you know, today marks the 90th edition of Style Sessions! Yay! Thank you so much for joining me here each week, seeing your outfits and reading your blogs truly makes my day (oh and your super sweet comments do too!).
This week I thought it would be fun to share one of my favorite fashion combinations, brights and stripes! I was looking back at a few ways to wear this using only a couple of different items and if you’re seeking inspiration, look no further than my brights and stripes – wardrobe remix…

Meet Our Head Stylist…
I’m delighted for you to meet this week’s Head Stylist, Nikki from BeDazzles After Dark! I adored this outfit she linked up recently… oh my gosh, her sequin skirt – isn’t it divine!
STYLE Q&A WITH NIKKI:
How would you describe your style? I’d have to say experimental. It’s so exciting trying out different trends and new styles – how else would we discover if we like something? I wouldn’t say that I fall into one particular category because I love wearing dresses and heels but I also love a good t-shirt, jeans and ankle bootie outfit. Clothes are a way to express who we are and I like to have as much fun with that as possible!
Which fashion trend are you currently loving? I have fallen victim to the crop top – SUCH a fun piece. I like wearing it with high-waisted skirts so I’m showing just a sliver of skin. I also can’t get enough of bold printed separates (worn together or apart), scalloped edges and metallic pieces like pointed toe pumps or skinny leg trousers.
What inspired you to start your blog? When I first moved to LA I tried whatever I could do break into the Fashion Industry. Because I had a degree in journalism, I was hired as a seasonal blogger for the hair accessories company ban.do. After I started writing for them I realized that I could put my love for writing and passion for fashion together and started my own blog. It was more of a fashion diary at first and within the last 2 years it’s really evolved into sharing my personal style and outfit ideas.
Name three beauty products you couldn’t live without: Bright lipstick, Bare Minerals Concealer and a good moisturizer.
What is your best beauty trick? Find a lip liner in a similar color to your lipstick color and fill in the entire lip (not just the edges). Add a layer of lipstick, blot, then brush on a bit of white translucent powder. Add another layer of lipstick and you’ve got staying power for most of the day!
What is your favorite (or dream) vacation destination? Anywhere tropical that involves the ocean, a cold drink and a good book. I love the Caribbean! I also love traveling (and eating) my way through Italy.
Tell us something not many people know about you? I’m a sci-fi lover! I grew up watching Star Trek, Star Wars and Sci-Fi tv and movies with my dad. The “Lord of the Rings” movies are a weakness of mine and the recent Planet of The Apes reboot movies are SO good (but I also love the originals from the 60’s)
