Gypsy Magic: A Little Shimmer Sparks the Magic!

The magic of the outfit is the elements that come together. A color palette of yellow, grey and biege with shimmers of bronze, gold and silver with a spot of hot pink gives the look it's mystery.

Biege, Grey and Yellow are complimentary colors that exude tranquility

The yellow skirt is my favorite to wear. It's a vintage piece from Bebe of all places. Reminds me of the gypsy skirts from years ago. I paired it with a grey tank (a winning combination of yellow and grey) some silver jewelry and bronze Enzo Angiolini pumps.

To add a bit more color and bring out my bohemian look, I adorned my neck with the beaded necklace I found in a Brazilian Jewelry Market.

Notice the piping on the interior of the leather jacket beautifully complements the skirt though hidden to the naked eye.

I love this clutch though it's too small to carry much in, but the natural texture plays well with many of my looks.

I know that DARK NAILS are not always appropriate for the summer but I love a dark color with a tan body. The bling on my fingers is a fun mix-n-match of gold, silver and rose gold.

Another bling! Kinda of scary big but I love this ring and get complements on it all the time. Watch out! You can see me coming a mile away.

Bronze Enzo Angiolini shoes add a sophistication to the ensemble, something I can wear to the office or especially a party.

Un outra element of texture, bronze grasscloth-faux shoes.

I love yellow and grey together, it's subdued but modern and sophisticated.
