“I’m Cuckoo for Culottes!”

This week, #TheChicW traveled to Sparkle City (Spartanburg, SC) to collaborate with my dear friends at Couture Closets.  They sell 100% authentic designer consigned items at amazing prices, & all of their products are verified for authenticity by their expert team!  Along with their authenticity verification process, Couture Closets offers a 100% money-back guarantee so you can shop with confidence!

Gucci, Chanel, Louis Vitton…  They’ve got you covered, Ladies!

From the catwalk to style blogs all over of the world, culottes are back with a vengeance this Spring 2015 as the new pant silhouette!  Ending mid-calf & traditionally cut wide, culottes typically look best with heels (as they help elongate the leg).  My neutral outfit below is Chan Luu (only $65) pulled together with a vintage spider clamp from a consigner in California.   Grey heels by Steele (seriously a steal at only $65) keep the look effortlessly chic while adding a little spice to my gait.   These shortened culottes for Spring offer the perfect balance:  the practicality of a trouser yet the elegance of skirt…

With the loving help of my style experts at Couture Closets, we paired this look with a python Gucci handbag & exquisite earrings from Colibri Collections.  We finished off this look with Tom Ford cat-eye sunglasses glamorous enough to make any fashionista jealous!  (WANT!!!  All of it.  Now please…) <3

    Another tip I will add is to take LOTs of pictures and nrraow them down to the best ones before sharing. With digital photography, there is no film to develop so you’re free to shoot away and cut later. Especially with a toddler on the move, it’s important to shoot quick, try lots of different angles and perspectives and hope you catch that adorable smiling face before it runs away or lunges at the camera. My husband shoots up to hundreds of photos a day when he wants to capture just a few images of our adventures. Most of them end up in the trash but he get a few great ones, too. He would also say to pay attention to lighting, late afternoon or early morning is best for good light. Avoid direct sunlight and using the flash.Great post : ).
