On Our Radar: LuV Designs

Posted 2 years ago by

I fell in love with LuV Designs early on in the summer. Their clothes are not only quality, they’re affordable too! They specialize in sexy one piece rompers, comfortable sexy jersey dresses, and a few separates like crop jackets, casual knit tops and leggings.

My favorite line they have is their 60’s collection, the oversized Mod dress is the best piece. It’s stylish, colorful and comfortable…perfect for the office and a night out on the town! Melissa Murphy of office style looks awesome in it!

Just pair this dress with pretty gold jewelry and a sexy pair of nude pumps! Would you wear this cute outfit to the office? Let us know in the comments below!


Steal Her Look: Leighton Meester Does Glamour Mexico

Posted 3 years ago by

The 26-year old actress, Leighton Meester graced the cover of June’s Glamour Mexico wearing striking jewel tones. Broke & Chic couldn’t help but admire the impecable and sophisticated styling for this photo shoot. In awe, we dug deeper to see if we could imitate her look for less!

On her beauty secrets:

I’m the worst at this (laughs). I always say less is more when it comes to make up and hair.But I do believe that if you are healthy you will always look better. Sure, I say this after having eaten mac & cheese, but I try to take vitamins, eat vegetables and salads, drink fresh juices and do yoga.

On what she does outside of acting:

I love music, writing and being with my family. I love traveling. I travel a lot, but almost always for work. I am thrilled to get a vacation, all I want to do is eat, sleep and swim all the time with my family in Florida.

Office Style: Henna, Curls and Classics

Posted 3 years ago by

The night before I had attended one of my favorite Mommy blogger networks, Mommys Links Glam Me event.  It was a really fun time with a great group of girls. There were women empowerment speakers, fun vendors, and swag.  At the party, I got my first henna tattoo and my hair curled. So when I got home, I put my hair in a loose bun, and secured it with a few bobby pins – a tip my regular stylist at BlowNY gave me.

The next day my hair and henna looked fab. Don’t ever underestimate the power of a professional with a curling iron;those curls lasted for days. So getting ready for work the next day was pretty easy.  I think subconsciously the ornate orange design on my hand lead me to pick that bold orange pencil skirt that I paired with a simple white button down shirt.

You can never have too many crisp dry cleaned, fitted, collared shirts.  They are a classic item that will always come in handy, and never go out of style. I recommend investing in a few.

Meet Natalie Yvonne Henry

Natalie is currently a social media moderator intern at SocialChorus. She got interested in fashion in high school and it just grew from there. Natalie blogs at fashionbystander.com, sharing the latest in fashion news with others; she hopes to expand it to showcase Caribbean fashion designers. She explains her style by saying,

“I dress how I feel. I love to look different, so I never focus on fitting into a particular genre or era of fashion. I just love to collect various pieces and make them my own. However, I love color! I prefer bright colors; the more than better!”

Her outfit today consists of a Forever 21 Chambray shirt, H&M floral print leggings,and a vintage bag and suede vest, which are both from a relative. The bow is a scrap piece of material that she had sitting around.
