Live Olive: June Jumper

Let’s polka!

You know me, my dears – I am, have always been and will always be, just a straight-up smack dab sucker for a polka dot – no matter what the occasion.

This sweet June romper is the absolute perfect one piece for those hot days ahead, a black and white frilly little number topped off with an utterly innocent pure white bow. But while it might be schoolgirl on top, this romper has a flashy short shorts style below that shows off my long lean legs…and very nicely too, thank you very much.

Add a classic patent leather pump and you’ve got my flirtiest ensemble to date – a fun, playful, barely there, body accentuating look, that suits the summer me just right.

Olive Live: Candy Striped for 4th of July

Hoorah!

It is that time of year again –  the perfect moment for backyard burgers and hot summer bonfires and downtown parades and sailing the high seas and fishing the wharf dock and lounging by the lake and catching fireflies and camping and cavorting and in general – grabbing the season for all it’s got!

I have just the ensemble for any one of these adventures and more, whether you’re boarding the yacht, or making S’mores!

First – a sweet scarf, then flirty navy blue Capri pants (in honor of my sailor man)… and add some stripes galore! Red and white is just the thing for seaside rendezvous and firework Fourth of July picnics.  Top it all off with a pair of sassy espadrilles and you are all set for those unforgettable months between June and September, when the skies are blue and the days are long and the nights are full of promise!

Happy summer dear readers and a fashionable salute to all of you celebrating Independence Day in the U.S. of A!

Olive Goil: Leana Zuniga of Electric Feathers

Fashion is about digging deep down straight into your imagination my dears and no one explores like Miss Leana Zuniga of the clothing line, Electric Feathers.

With her raw silk convertible dresses, drop-dead gorgeous hand-dyed flowing and flirty cotton skirts, elegant jump suits, and billowing harem pants – Zuniga’s clothes are meant for both high style and rollicking adventure.

Electric Feathers are what you might wear to the Bazaar or to the Casbah or to meet a mysterious sheik, ensembles to ramble on sand dunes and astride dromedaries in exotic places where blue tiles shimmer under blind white heat.

They are also the perfect clothes for Sunday drives or walks in the park or just about anything a girl likes to look pretty while doing.

Almost absolutely everything in her amazing collections are reversible – so you get the added surprise of many outfits in one – scarves can be worn as belts, dresses can be worn front or back, necklines go up and go down – this is fashion to have fun with!

Not only that, but Miss Zuniga’s clothes are cozy too and crafted with care, effortless and just beyond beautiful!

Fashion, fashion – fabulous fashion!  Everywhere you look there is something wonderful to look AT!

Sometimes it does get a tad overwhelming though, doesn’t it my dears? This endless and ongoing array of clothing and bangles and baubles and shoes… a lady can really get a bit dazed by it all.

That’s where our favorite fashion bloggers step in, clearing out the rubbish to make room for the best of the best, the cream of the crop, the most glamorous and lovely of the latest batch of fashion offerings.

One of those bloggers who always seems to be perfectly on point is the lovely Wendy Lam of Nitrolicious. This is a young gal with exquisite taste that is just broad enough to include all sorts of styles – whether you are feeling sophisticated and subdued… or vivid and vivacious.

Thank you Miss Wendy, for lighting the road up ahead for the rest of us!
