Rip it up

I’m loving the grunge look lately. If I added some combat boots and tied a plaid shirt around my waist I would start to question whether I was in Vegas 2014 or Seattle circa 1997.
But seriously, I’m happy 90’s clothing is coming back. I remember growing up thinking every decade has a particular fashion – but there’s nothing cool about the 90’s. Oh how wrong you were
little 9-year old me! In fact, Balmain’s collection at NYFW was partly inspired by the 90’s! I will say though, I’m glad not EVERYTHING from that decade is returning (ex: Winnie the Pooh overalls, smiley face t-shirts, carpenter jeans) but I’ve gotta say, it was a good time!
P.S. Because it’s Friday and I’m feeling nostalgic, here are some classic things from the 90’s.

‘Maxi’mize your fall wardrobe

    It’s October! I’ve said before that fall is my favorite season, but October is the “beez neez” when it comes to the fall months. Halloween, cooler temps and the best clothes! 
I just got this faux leather jacket and I’m loving it. It fits like a gem, and the arms are just big enough that you can wear a sweater underneath when it gets a little cooler. (I feel like this right now ). 
As for the skirt – it’s actually a maxi dress I’ve had for YEARS. I never really wear it anymore, but when turned into a skirt it’s like I have a brand new piece. (Another exciting moment). 
Hope your October is off to a great start!

Lindsey’s Love List: Rompers (everything under $100)

Lindsey's Love List: Rompers (everything under $100)

Lindsey’s Love List: Rompers (everything under $100) by lindsey-simon featuring a playsuit jumpsuit
When you live in Las Vegas you get used to seeing girl after girl after girl after…(you get the point) wearing the same old little black dress. I admit, before I lived here I would pack my “Vegasy” dresses that I’d never wear anywhere else because they were too tight, too short, and let’s face it, if you’re dancing you WILL have a wardrobe malfunction.
So, if I’m going out and want to get “fancy-shmancy”I like to wear a jumpsuit / romper. For one – it sets you apart from the giant “black bandage sea”. (I know you know what I’m talking about). They’re also comfortable, classy, stylish and you can actually move in them! And if you’re wanting to get noticed, this will do it. A bonus? You don’t have to constantly worry about crossing your legs in fear of showing… well… you get the point.
So here’s to all you Vegas visitors out there, whom I love and adore, let’s rise above the skin-tight belts that ladies like to pass off as “dresses” – and get to stunnin’ in some sleek and sexy rompers!

Oh – and did I mention? Everything you see here is under $100 (shoes included). Which leaves you for more money to spend at the craps table! Cheers!

I’m Blushing…

I'm Blushing...

I’m Blushing… by lindsey-simon featuring Ray-Ban

Let’s be clear… I do NOT like pink. I have some pink items in my closet, but I’ve never really felt good wearing the color.(Maybe it’s because when you’re younger you’re told “pink is for girls and blue is for boys”. I don’t like being told what to do. I can be very stubborn!) However, for some reason I’m LOVING the “Lush Blush” trend lately! I’m partial to neutrals, and it’s so easy to incorporate this light color into a neutral outfit. A blush coat is most definitely on my “wish list” for fall!

My Fall Style Staples

Fall takes a little more time to really set in here in Vegas, but I don’t care! I’ve already taken out my fall clothes and I’m not turning back. Fall is by far my favorite season. It’s not just because of the fashion. Wait. Never mind. It is because of the fashion.
I’ve found that there are a couple of key pieces that I’m always turning towards during the fall months, and these are a few of my favorites. 
I love blazers, burgundy ANYTHING, dark nails, leopard heels and of course you always need a good collared white shirt for layering. 
I also like to pretend I’m still back in elementary school and go “school shopping” for the fall. If you do the same, then you’ll love raise.com. They offer discounted gift cards to all my favorite places! From Macy’s to Zara, h&m, Forever21 and so much more! They even have home design stores like Pottery Barn (swoon). Better yet – you can also sell your gift cards that you don’t want and earn points for it. I highly recommend checking it out. 
Thanks for stopping by!
