Girls Night Out Music Mix - By Sara

A Diva is not only always looking good but they know how to have a good time too. Here at DIVA's we love to listen to all types of music from hip-hop, rock, indie, to top 40. I have put together a mix and titled it "Girls Night Out" for those Divas out there that love getting ready with some music beating in the background.

My musical taste is not the most conventional however this playlist really gets me ready to get out there and dance. If it isn't hitting the spot, not too worry Divas, keep yourself posted for more playlist to come featuring the music likes of our other DIVA's specialist- Dimitra or as we call her "Dee" as well as for what Cori our Main Diva loves to turn the volume up to.

If there are any songs or suggestions you ladies want to request just leave me a comment and I will make sure to add it to our next playlist :)

Enjoy and dance the night away ladies

The blog has been active for a few months now and we love to update you guys with style tips, outfit options, new arrivals, and everything and anything Divas. However we got to thinking, we've ' never told you about who WE are. Being one on one with our customers is my favorite part about my job. Starting with this blog post we will be starting a series of blog posts where we will be telling you a little bit of who we are :) Hope you guys like getting to know us as much as we want to get to know you...

Dimitra Lappas

Dimitra is one of our fashion stylist and sales reps. She is a 20 year old Florida native who moved to Orlando to attend the International Academy of Design & Technology to major in fashion design and merchandising. She began with DIVA's as a loyal shopper and later moved up to becoming one of our interns. After a few months of interning we just knew we couldn't let her go and asked her to join the team as a part-time stylist and sales rep. Her loud and outgoing personality with a whole lot of silliness is what we love about her. She is a fierce woman and noticed as soon as she walks into a room. She is always styled head to toe and as a design student, she is full of fresh and hot new ideas for our humble and daring Boutique. "Dee" as we like to call her is very generous with her advice and thanks to her we dare to get a wild with our fashion. Dimitra is currently a free-lance stylist. Stop by the store any time and consult with her for any fashion questions, advice, or simply just to chit chat about her new favorite fashion item. Dimitra truly lives, eats and breathes fashion.

Love you Dee!

WELCOME back all of our GORGEOUS UCF students!

Some of our favorite pics from this weeks NEW arrivals!

This seasons Fall fashion are so flirty and feminine! From bows and ruffles to fun military inspired attire! Here is a sneak peak of what is to be expected this Fall season 2010!



Rompers and Jumpers are this seasons fashion STAPLE!

Finding the perfect fitting romper, is like looking for the perfect LBD! (Little black dress) Not all rompers and jumpers are designed for all body types. You may have to try on several different styles and a few different labels to find the one that fits you best! Keep that in mind and don't get overwhelmed when shopping for these trendy pieces.

Wearing rompers and jumpers should be two things, comfortable and function-able!! Since they are meant to have more of a baggy and relaxed fit, try adding a waist belt to cinch and add shape. Wearing an empire waist belt will help you look less "boxy" and more of an instant hour glass shape.

Wearing your romper or jumper during the day? For an adorable and feminine look, pair it with some gladiator sandal flats. For an evening out? Wear a pair of tan heels or wedges, they will add length to your legs and add more of a dramatic look to your romper.


Owner's top FIVE from our NEW shipment!

    HAREM Pants
Harem pants are more retro-modern with a casual, less body-conscious look. Interested in figuring out how to pull these EXTREMELY fashion forward pants off?  When wearing a voluminous fabric, it’s best to keep everything around it fairly simple and on the fitted side. I suggest a snug little tank top is key if you’re going to go baggy on the bottom. GREAT item to have for this seasons Fall fashions ;)
YES, leopard is BACK! Animal prints add instant sex appeal to coats, dresses, shoes, mini skirts and MORE
Animal print is HUGE this Fall 2010
 Looking for an outfit or an accessory?  How about something sensual and seductive?? 
Look no further, take this powerful look into consideration as the print is both  HOT, TRENDY and can make you look unbelievable! The brown and black coloration of this print blends beautifully with most of the 2010 fall colors of the season
             Layered dresses are great for all body types! Want to hide that little bit of belly fat you have tried so hard to work off? Try this dress! Great fit and if very forgiving! ;) 

 One shoulder dress

The one shoulder look has been with us for a few season and by the looks of it, its not going anywhere. This look is very popular with designers and our customers! It's a very classy and romantic look, its a great for a formal occasion or a casual top for everyday wear.
