Mary Poppins Halloween Costume

Happy Halloween All! I wanted to share with you my costume for my office Halloween party yesterday, and tell you how I achieved this look. My office takes Halloween very seriously! We have a huge annual party with a extensive decor, food, great music provided by a DJ and an extremely competitive costume competition.

Every year, I try to dress up as something that I can create on my own. I like costumes that I can put together using clothing that I already have in my closet, and purchasing things that I can use again. For this Halloween, I decided to go with Mary Poppins. I mean, who doesn’t love that Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious woman! I can’t even begin to tell you how much I enjoyed Julie Andrews in this film growing up. As a lover of all things fashion related, I was always in awe of how much she was able to fit into her purse!

To create this look, I wore heels, tights, a faux leather H&M skirt, and a button down white blouse that I already had. This was half of my costume, so I only needed to shop for accessories. On Wednesday, I decided to run to Forever 21, and luckily, I found exactly what I was looking for. I purchased this fabulous black hat, and red bow (which was a barrette, but I made it into a bow tie). To decorate the hat, I went to the Dollar Store after work and purchased two bundles of fake flowers, one white set and one red. I mean, $2! You can’t beat that. Finally, I borrowed this Red Door Spa umbrella from my best friends mom, and was finally finished with my costume! To top off the look, I wore MAC’s “Russian Red” lipstick, and O.P.I’s “Big Apple Red” on my nails; both of these items, I already had. In total, I may have spent a total of $25 on new items, and used everything else from my closet.

If you are attending a Halloween party this weekend, and aren’t sure what to be, I hope this look can inspire you!

Have a wonderful Halloween weekend with your children, family and friends. I will talk to you all very soon!

Happy Friday All My Beautiful Fashionistas!

Khaki green is one of my favorite colors to wear for outerwear during the fall time. I am actually on the hunt for a khaki green vest right now, and cannot find one anywhere! If you all have suggestions as to where I can find one, please let me know! I bought this jacket in February before my trip to Boston, and it has become a fall staple for me. I love that it has the black leather sleeves and that I can pair it with so many different looks that are casual or even dressed up!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I will talk to you all soon!

So I did the quintessential pumpkin patch trip with my family over the weekend and I am so happy I did! We had so much fun picking out pumpkins for our homes and spending the day together. If you didn’t see which pumpkins I picked for my apartment, head over to my instagram @bisousbrittany for a photo of how I set them up.

As you can see, I have some cute guests in my post today. My little sister Alexa and my cousin Monica made their Bisous, Brittany debut! There were so many pumpkins to choose from, I know we all had an issue picking. But we finally found the perfect pumpkins and I know my sister and Monica went straight home to decorate theirs!

Have you all picked out your pumpkins for Halloween/Thanksgiving?

I hope you all are having a wonderful week. Talk to you soon!

“Fall” time in Miami

IMG_3272IMG_3217 IMG_3270IMG_3238IMG_3253IMG_3250 IMG_3245IMG_3262IMG_3234IMG_3216IMG_3244IMG_3251Sweater: Banana Republic, Necklace & Ring: Bauble Bar, Pants: H&M (Something Similar), Heels: Jessica Simpson from Nordstrom Rack, Sunglasses: Aldo (Similar), Bracelet: Nordstrom Rack (Try this), Purse: BCBG

Miami has had only one “fall-ish” day so far. By fall-ish, I mean the temperature dipped into the low 70’s for one day. I am praying for more cool weather because fall is definitely my favorite season to dress for. I am trying to stay out of the heat so that I can dress for the season, but it can be a bit challenging. Luckily, I will be making a trip for Thanksgiving to a cool climate state, so I can wear more cool weather clothing at the end of November!

I hope you all are having a great week. Just a reminder, if you want to keep up with me daily, be sure to follow me on Instagram @bisousbrittany! Thank you for stopping by today.

Fall Greens

I received this beautiful statement necklace from Fabulux Boutique (Instagram account: @fabuluxboutique- Check them out) and knew it would be the perfect accessory for the fall time. I paired this beautiful statement necklace with my chunky knit sweater and crocheted khaki shorts from H&M for a comfortable and cozy look. To top everything off, I added my favorite green handbag and was out the door. Now you know me, I love me some bold lipstick, so I recently bought this beautiful Milani Cosmetics lip liner that I used all over my lips. I added a dark gloss on top and was ready to go.

How have you been dressing this fall? What are you favorite fall looks this season?

Talk to you all soon! Thanks for stopping by.

Lady In Red

After wearing this red envelope skort, I remember why I loved it so much initially. If you can remember a while back, I wore it for this post, and haven’t put it on since. Why? I have no idea, because it really is the perfect pop of color for any neutral look. You know how sometimes, we forget we have certain items in our closet, and it isn’t until we rediscover them again that we pull them out of hiding? That is what happened with this red number. I guess that means I need to clean out my drawers and closet more often.

Thanks for stopping by today! Talk to you tomorrow!

Fall Chic

Ever since I have gotten my hands on this fall clutch from Linell Ellis, I cannot get enough of it. And the best part, I have a discount code for all of my readers! Type in “LEXBB15″ for 15% your Linell Ellis purchase! I am telling you, the quality and make of this clutch is worth every penny. It is the perfect size, the perfect color/pattern, and goes with just about any outfit.

For this look, you must have noticed that I am a bit obsessed with draping my blazer over my shoulders. I don’t know why, but I think it looks so sophisticated and chic. And can we talk about these heels. I have had them for YEARS! I believe I bought them my Sophomore year of college (2009), and have just brought them back out. They are a bit high for my liking, but aren’t they so cute? I just love the color. I must say, it is the perfect fall plum shade!\

I hope you all are having a fabulous week. I will talk to you all tomorrow.

What says girly more than diamonds, sparkles and hearts? I ‘d say nothing. This outfit combination is ultra feminine with a touch of edge for the leather skirt (which is a favorite of mine). As you can see, this week I have featured all different types of looks with some element of leather. If you want a more edgy look, try something like this. For a more chic and corporate look, try a style like this. And if you are going for a more relaxed vibe, then a style like this is for you!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone! Thank you for stopping by today and I will talk to you all soon!

My Current Obsession: Leather

This week, I definitely gravitated towards leather elements and even tomorrows post will feature some leather elements as well. I think that leather (faux leather) is always a great material for fall. It is chic but yet adds an edge to any look.

Some tips for wearing leather: 1) Minimal is better. Don’t wear too much leather at once. One key piece will suffice and give you the just the right about of edginess you need 2) Find the leather piece that suits your personality and style. This can be anything from a leather skirt, jacket, dress or even a top. 3) Balance is key. Make sure you are pairing pieces with your leather item that truly compliment that piece.

I hope these few tips help you when shopping for leather this fall and winter. Have fun with your leather pieces and if you have never worn it before, try it out this fall! You may find that you really enjoy it!

Bisous, Brittany Michèle
