Style in Unexpected Places

I'm a firm believer that a true fashionista can shop just about anywhere and make it work! In my opinion style is about making a look your own and adding your unique spin to it. I'll shop just about anywhere as I long as like the style and can make the item work for me.

I had never shopped Dressbarn before, so, naturally I was very excited to receive the invite to attend the Dressbarn Grand Opening Event! I was definitely up for the challenge to see what I could find! 


Here are a few things I loved.

I'll share what I wore later ;)
I was really quite surprised, from the selection to the layout of the store (the dressing room was absolutely beautiful)  to the hidden gems I found, I'll definitely make sure I stop into Dressbarn more often. Martha and Maria and the sales clerks were all so accommodating, I even received a goodie bag full of coupons and other goodies to take with me!

You should definitely check out your local Dressbarn store and if you're in the metro Detroit area head on over to the new Novi store and tell them Inez sent you.  Browse the online store here!

So, have you ever shopped dressbarn?

Hey everyone!!
Well this post is L-O-N-G overdue! I’ve been super busy the last few weeks and I when I sat down to recap my experiences at the Joyce Meyer conference I wanted to be sure I had enough time to devote to this post. The conference took place a couple weeks ago at the Palace of Auburn Hills.  I was fortunate enough to attend on the last day of the conference and I was even luckier to snag a third row seat in the packed arena!!

Praise and worship was lead by Isreal Houghton and New Breed and they really aided in getting the praise session started. I was so pumped and overjoyed just to be in the presence of so many believers! It was truly amazing! 

After reading over my notes which are three pages long, I figured it would be a good idea to split this post  into a mini-series entitled Armed and Dangerous. 

 
Prior to my hiatus from blogging earlier this year, I had never really listened to or followed Joyce Meyer before. I had heard of her but I didn’t know her story. During that very difficult time in my life I needed to be feed by the Word and one day the Spirit lead me to begin listening to Joyce Meyer’s teachings. I very quickly became hooked to them and I quickly downloaded every app that I could find and I even purchased two of her books, The Battlefield of the Mind and Living Beyond Your Feelings. 
JoyceMeyerConference

She encourages us to get to know God for ourselves and not rely on a preacher or teacher, but to have an intimate, one-on-one relationship with God and get to know His Word for ourselves. 

What I love most about Joyce Meyer is her ability to share her story so freely; we can all gain hope and increase our faith and endurance by knowing that God can and will keep on His promises to us. He will never abandon us regardless of  circumstances, now, present or past.

Starting next week, I will share with you the blessing that Joyce Meyer shared with us. 

Be blessed!

What I love about Ashley's style is her ability to mix the unexpected and make it work. Ashley shows us that work wear doesn't have to be boring, she also confirms that she can turn up the heat when she's headed out for a night on the town. Ashley's shoes and accessories are always the cutest, I'd love to raid her closet! Her style proves that classic can still be sassy and fun! I'm sure you'll be inspired by her blog as I am, see for yourself!

What prompted you to start your blog?
I originally just wanted to showcase my personal style. In the past year, ASW has added various subjects which include, spotlighting entrepreneurs, writing reviews on events as well as Breast Cancer products for Kohls, and encouraging my readers to live a healthy fashionable lifestyle.

What are your fashion must haves?
My fashion must haves are the basic go-to items such as v-neck tees, blazers, a nice pair of fitted trousers, cardigans, scarves, and of course dresses to wear for different occasions. I sometimes like to try to incorporate new trends into my wardrobe but I keep my style in mind when putting together outfits.
 How would you describe your style?
ASW’s style can be described as diversified and classic. I do like to pair different items together that I may not normally wear, especially to work!
What's the one thing you enjoy most about being a blogger?
I thoroughly enjoy writing on ASW and meeting new bloggers like myself. I have been blogging since February of 2011 and I have been inspired to be an even better blogger from joining the different groups and following blogs. I also enjoy attending events and writing reviews on different products!

Isn't Ashley fabulous?!

I'll let you guys know what I did, bit by bit because it was pretty awesome and busy, so stay tuned....!! If you follow me on instagram (@stylechic360) than you pretty much know what I was up to.


I have to first tell you about the blogger network group I co-founder with Erika last year, FASH DET: Fashion Bloggers of Detroit, never in a million years would I have imagined that "our baby" as we call it would grow to be such a beautiful young lady hehe. Yesterday we celebrated 1 year of FASH DET with our members and it was an amazing time!
 FASH DET

I am so proud of seeing my vision come to reality. I hope that within the next year FASH DET: Fashion Bloggers of Detroit grows to be even bigger! Currently, we have almost 50 Detroit (area) fashion/style bloggers in our network and we are growing each day. I was amped to see that more than half of our members were able to join us for the our 1 year celebration!

We also announced Mar of MarMnz.com as our official photographer!! We are so blessed to have her join the FASH DET team and even better that she is a FASH member herself, willing to share her talents with us all!! Thank you Mar!  I can't wait to cover our first event together!
 Event Sign in Table

It was surely a FASH-tabulous event!! I would like to again thank each and every one of you guys for coming and also all of my blogger boo's, family and friends that wished me/the event well! Your support means the world to me! More than you guys know!

Simply Chic is a great example of classic and effortless style. She definitely has a way with pairing classic pieces with an unexpected twist. What I love most about Simply Chic is her ability to keep things stylish without over accessorizing or complicating her looks! I’m always excited to see what she’ll wear next!
What prompted you to start your blog?
Believe it or not the name Simply Chic is the reason I started my blog. My professional background is in marketing and merchandising so I like branding and I felt like the brand/name “Simply Chic” really fit me. At the time I was following a lot of girl’s with very eclectic styles and I didn’t think anyone would care what I wore day to day because my style was more classic. But once the name “Simply Chic” came to me, I felt like I could be true to my style and build my blog and brand around that name. 


What are your fashion must haves?
Sticking with the simply chic theme, for the most part, my must haves are all basics. I love white and off white tops, anything from t-shirts, to tanks, to blouses. Blazers in neutrals and fun colors will take you a long way. I also think outerwear is important, so a good fitting trench coat, leather jacket and denim jacket are key. And because I like to do a lot of basics, I have a closet full of funky heels and pretty scarves to bring in the chic. 


How would you describe your style?
That’s easy…SIMPLY CHIC. 


What's the one thing you enjoy most about being a blogger?
With the whole process of blogging, my favorite part is sorting through and editing my photos (my least favorite part is taking the photos). In terms of being a blogger I would have to say my favorite part is reading everyone’s lovely comments and feeling a sense of community within the blogging world. 

Isn't she fabulous?! Be sure to check out the Simply Chic blog here!

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Erika and I are gearing up to host a meet and greet with fellow members of FASH DET (#FASHDETDinner) this Sunday. I didn't want to be overwhelmed with figuring out what I was going to wear so I planned my outfit about a month ago.

I knew I wanted to wear my recently purchased color blocked peplum from ASOS, so I built my outfit around that. I ordered this top 2 months ago and still haven't worn it yet. I've already thought of a few other ways to wear it! I also have Liz who is a FASH DET member and also an amazing jewelry designer, design a custom pair of earrings for me to wear! I can't wait to see them and show you all!
Can't wait to take pics of this look!

Do you guys ever plan your outfits?

Swooning Over: Peplums
I'm currently loving peplums! I think they work well on any body type. They accentuate your curves and also create the illusion of curves. These peplums from the ASOS Curve Collection are all on my wishlist! I just can't get enough of them! 
Check them out here: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Have you rocked the peplum?

Happy Monday everyone! 

I hope you had an amazing weekend! Well, as you all know I finally upgraded my camera. I'm so excited! I've been wanting to do it for a while and finally made the investment!

I wanted to test it out and take a few new pictures, so I had a little mini shoot with my new pair of shoes, hehe. I'm looking forward to taking a few classes and getting more accustomed to using it! I can't wait! I just love how crisp the pictures turned out!

ASOS Floral Shoes (1)

I'm warning you all though...I love pictures so just let me know if I'm doing too much! LOL.

ASOS Floral Shoes (4)

These floral beauties are from ASOS and they are on sale, right now. You should definitely check them out. I thought it be great to share some pics of my latest shoe purchase as well.


You can find them here and also a similar pastel pair here.
