Neon Sun

My hiatus is now over and I am settled into being home in FL. I apologize for the long pause.. Roc Me Out is back to share our ideas, thoughts, updates, and love for beauty/fashion! I took the last 2 weeks to unpack, settle in, see family, and attend a wedding. The Summer is officially here with temperatures in the 90’s! When it comes to daytime outfits in FL, less is definitely more! Unless we are talking about accessorizing, of course!

Neon is a summer color that I love! A great way to add a pop of color to any outfit is a bright mani/pedi with dainty accessories.

Lady Gaga for Versace

This photo popped out to me for a few different reasons. Versace’s homepage displays their new campaign- Lady Gaga for Versace! Love everything about this from her chunky jewelry, MIDI RINGS, the pastel tote bags, and Gaga’s  fierce pose. This almost reminds me of an under the sea spring look because of the couch’s oyster shell shape, sea-like coloring, and the natural make-up.

Midi-rings are fun accessories that adds a little something extra to the usual ring look. Shop our ring collection at Roc Me Out Online Boutique and get right this Spring!!

Claire’s backpacks.. Yes, Claires!

 

My boyfriend bought this Herschel backpack a while back and I have used it a few times as an overnight bag. I love the size, print, quality, and variety of styles offered.  Aztec print has been hot for awhile now and black and white is on trend too!

The price tag isn’t to steep for what you get but I was walking through the mall when I noticed a very similar yet smaller bag for half the price! Check out the Aztec print backpack from Claire’s accessory shop! I have not shopped in this store since my tween days but I couldn’t help but check it out.

Your favorite dress recycled

Living in Italy for months on just a few suitcases means you must recycle your favorite pieces. I wore this dress on New Years but wanted to bring it back in a new way last night.

I decided to turn the above dress into a top by tucking it into my Express pencil skirt.

Mixing and matching items will expand your closet in a creative way. This can be used with shorts and jeans too. I like the pencil skirt with a tucked in tight dress because it is smooth and ties together great!

It’s A Black And White Spring!

I recently posted the official Spring/Summer color guide for 2014! I know.. They were BOLD and BRIGHT, but the black & white staple look has been hotter than ever. The posh look strolled the runways in a major way during fashion week. We saw floral prints, stripes, and big totes all in black and white.

Although Versace has a Spring/Summer  pastel bag line appropriately enough, they also have new totes in ALL black. I don’t know which I love more…  Lady Gaga’s Ad or the bag below. Donatella and Lady Gaga have a similar aura.. Agree?

Skirts in black and white are great because the styling options are endless. Like what you see below? Get a similar look by visiting Roc Me Out Boutique and shop our Fit & Flare skirt.

Gel Mani & Pedi at home!

It all started back in the day for me with Lee press-on nails. I have memories of sitting on my bedroom floor laying out my color collection and picking the look for that day. I was constantly doing my own nails hoping to not spill on my white carpet (which happened too often). Once I grew up and made my own income, I would visit my local nail salon every 10 days or so to get my acrylics filled with a gel top coat and pedi.. Choosing the design, color, shape, etc. is a fun way to express your style and mood.

Well… Living in Italy and starting my own online boutique has changed things in my life, like not getting my nails done in hopes of being frugal. Not to mention there aren’t nail shops on every corner like we lucky girls have in Tampa or any metro U.S. city for that matter. But this does not stop me from looking polished and keeping a fresh coat!

I discovered the Deborah Lippmann gel coat polishes before leaving the states during one of my many trips to Ulta. This kit comes with a base coat and a top coat. First apply the base coat and let dry (dries quick), next add a color if you wish, finally add your top coat. This  extends your manicure, helps avoid chipping, and gives you that professional look.

You can also purchase Deborah Lippmann color polish as recommended, I have used a variety of brands for the color and it seems to be just fine. My tip is apply one coat of color because if the polish becomes to thick you may see it peel off over a few days. I also love the Kiss nail art, which is extremely affordable and they really last! Create your own design with the crystals or flowers after you complete the color steps. Apply a very small amount of clear polish over the design to hold down tight for a lasting look.

Voilà!!

Fun In Floral

Spring 2014 is full of bright colors, botanical prints, and feminine lace! I still love high-wasted skirts that fit the body just right, so mix this hot print with an accentuating pencil skirt and I will be happy. This skirt is available at the European store, OVS in Italy for only 16 Euros. They did not have my size, but I will be checking out the other local locations for this product. Its reminiscent of 70s daisy flowers but the black background gives this skirt a grown woman look.

Hopefully similar stores in The U.S. like H&M will carry looks like this.

The official color guide of Spring 2014 is bright, bold, and beautiful. The colors are diverse but pair great together.

The above maxi dress hits this freesia yellow right on. The light fabric and open caged back is cool and comfortable. This style maxi dress is nice for any body type.

Cayenne red is on the hot list this season.. Red is a color that turns heads. This accentuating wrap dress fits at the waist and offers a sexy look without exposing too much.

Dazzling Blue is a bold pop of color that matches great with a variety of other colors and accessories. Our Roc Blue Dress can be dressed up or casual. The gold embellishments add a sparkle and a bit of a bad girl look.

Men Of The Oscars!

Our favorite looks of The Oscars 2014!

Our favorite looks of The Oscars 2014!

The men were looking so fresh and so clean last night.. Here are our favorite masculine looks of the 2014 Oscars.

Left: Bradley Cooper in Tom Ford is looking dapper and handsome. This suite fits him great and the rugged beard does not hurt either. Looking better than even in my opinion

Middle: Will Smith in Berluti is looking gorgeous and his selection fits his cool, laid back look just right. The open collar is comfortable and sexy.

Kevin Spacey in Burberry is looking edgy and young. This was a perfect selection to add some youth and color. This blue suit is my favorite look for the men this year because it is eye catching and pops. Burberry was a great choice last night.

Phew! They had some lucky dates but of course they were stunning as well.
