Fashion advice.

“Buy less 

choose well,

and mix it all up”

-Vivian Westwood.

Now a days going shopping is a different experiences, there is a market for everyone. Range of prices that allows us to leave with more than one outfit.

My mom always tells me the story when she was fifteen , buying a cute outfit for parties was not something cheap. So she bought herself a salmon jumpsuit and switch it up with her friends outfits creating a new option.

Today we just buy a new dress or skirt depending on the occasion.

But lately I realize sometimes, getting more outfits isn’t the answer. I rather prefer getting a good quality blouse that I’m crazy about that might be expensive. Than get 5 different options that I just like because there is cheaper.

Sometimes quantity is not better than quality.

So I have decided to take this advice and spend my money in only thing I LOVE.

Lately I have been eyeing a pair of boots that are quite expensive, but im in love with them, I can even visualise outfits. So I have decided to spend my money on them instead of getting two pairs of boot that are ok.

Kiss me hard before you go…

One of the easiest beauty tricks is lipstick.

 It’s easy to apply, the hard part is to choose the right color. The rogue is supposed to highlight our features and give a pop of color.

But if not used the right, you can end up looking like a clown. And that’s defenetly something we don’t want to happen.

Here are some tips on how to choose color according to your color skin:

  • If you are WHITE/FAIR like me I suggest that in summer you try a coral lipstick something light, not that bold. My favorite is a light pink, since im tan it really pops out, and I don’t need much more make -up than that, you can also try as well peachy tones.
  • If you have more MEDIUM COLORS SKIN TONE ,use a slight rosy color, you should try a cranberry or a more bold pink as well , but more for a night out .( but make sure it doesn’t look cartoonish).
  • For those with BROWN/OLIVE TONES I suggest to go for those bold reds/burgundy and if you are a risk taker a berry pink will be perfect , specially now in spring.

My final tip is to spend some money in lipstick, don’t be cheap because it can ruin your lips and crack them. Besides they last a long time, so pick a good color , make sure you love it.

Some great brands you can choose from are: Marc Jacobs, Chanel, Nars,Christian Dior, Lorac cosmetics,  M.A.C and Sephora .

So be bold, take a risk, choose a great color that helps ou bring out the beauty inside you!!

The Ring Bling

This is the new accessories trend that has everyone hooked.

Love rings but there are not that easy to pull off.

For example, I have really long thin finger so is hard to get a good fit. I’ve bought several rings in H&M and Forever 21 and they fall off sometimes.

Now a days, using more than one ring on one hand look great. With different sizes and shapes, it can look trendy, chic and even dressy. It all depends on the rings you choose.

It is also a very cheap accessory that can really help pick up an outfit. This is a trend for daytime and night-time as well.

Try to choose some rings with design and colors, for ex: a got some green and silver rings that go great with my tan.

But most important get simple rings in different sizes so you can put them mid-finger also. Try to get silver and gold, so you can also switch them up with other style rings.

Here I leave you with some great choices from H&M:

 This trend is surely not new, it has been sported for the last few month, but is still a very much liked trend.

Statement necklaces are a great accessory, the just bring up any outfit. Even casual wear looks more cool.

It’s perfect for those LBD (little black dress) that we have in our placards waiting to go partying. They bring a pop of color to our outfits and make them a different one.

Bags bags bags!!!

Tots are all the rage in this spring collection.

 They are girls best friend, perfect  to go out parting. They  hold up our make-up, lipstick, keys and phone.

Even though that is their function it can also be a great accessory. The most common is to have a black tote that can match all of your outfit.

But after seeing this bags I don’t think I can go back to my boring little black bag.

Dont get me wrong I love it, but this bags are to die for!!!

My favorite one and my must have is this Roberto Cavalli Hera bag in turquoise leather from his spring collection ’14.

But there are some many is hard to choose here I leave you some of my top pics!!

Trend setter: Christian Siriano.

I love, love, love the new collection of Christian Siriano.

Siriano is a genius. But this is not any new news. I am one of his biggest fans ever since his first appearance and winning in season four of project runway. He always keeps us on our toes, creating the most outrageous, over the top, original, creative and FIERCE outfits.

Siriano’s signatures is quite unique. All of his outfits are empowering , girly,voluminous and with great advanguard structures.

So it is no surprise that his new collection has dazzled us. The pieces exposed in this collection are more ready to wear than in previous year, and I love that.

From cocktail dresses, evening gowns, and even day wear. He gives us a big range to choose from.

My personal obsession of this collection is the striped pencil skirt, that are definitely making a big comeback this year!

It’s perfect for a casual look, to go to work and even dress it up. But there are so many great outfits in this collection that’s really hard to choose just one thing.

The most outstanding is the range in the color palette, from yellows, to coral, to flower patterns and strips.

The designer was inspired by his latest trip to Mexico city. That definitely  suit him. It is not new that Siriano was missing some splash of rainbow, and oh boyyy he got it down right this time !!

This collection is fresh, young, flirty, girly , trendy and sophisticated.

Obsession of the week.. Rachel Zoe!!

This week my obsession is the new Rachel Zoe ‘s 2014 Spring Collection.

One of my favorites is the leather jacket with crocodile detail. That the designer sports herself in her instagram page with the vice president of her brand: Mandana Dayani, at the same time, priceless:

It’s true: great minds dress alike!!

obsession of the week.

The jacket is part of her new spring collection,  which btw worth dying for!!!

Zoe has amazed us again.

The collection is very minimalist. Inspired in a modern safari look.You can see black and whites, as her signature style. Very elegant and great lines.It is very sexy, sophisticated, trendy , a 60, 70s influence with a modern twist. As expected the collection has flowy dresses and fitted jackets and every piece is tailored to perfection.

Rachel Zoe certainly know how to dress the everyday women. It is not an easy task , but she does it oh so well!!!

After all she is a pro , she is a distinguished stylist of the stars, editor in fashion and designer.

This new collection is perfection in itself, it is effortless, yet  sophisticated and elegant.There is something for every woman.

If you don’t know her yet I suggest you do your research after all she is THE stylist to have and follow.And one of the biggest icons in fashion today.

She understands like no other: women’s likes and needs. She trespasses high fashion to everyday clothing making it wearable.

Eyes open. Keep looking. Get inspired.

Fashion is not static, is an always changing thing . Style is unique and  personal ,  you can’t just copy it from another, it shows who you are and what you like. Is a form of art and self-expression. Your style is your personal brand that is not corrupted by anything or anyone else, so embrace it. Be creative, explore, don’t be afraid of making mistakes. Get to know yourself , for that you might inspire yourself and others.

As Grace says:

“Always keep your eyes open.

Keep watching.
Because
Whatever
You see
Can
Inspire you.”

I look at the world and people around me and I get amazed and  inspired, everyday!!.

Hope this blog will do the same!

 

 

Fashion statement: Party in the back!

la foto-3

This trend is not new , I myself have been sporting it for quite some time. Its been used a lot in the past  red carpets.

What is party in the back???….. Well it isn’t a fashion term per se , we started using it with a friend since necklines were really not our thing. To be honest is a trend that really favors us flat chicks! It allows you to show some skin, ans t be sexy and mysterious at the same time. Not reviling too much, but not covering up fully.

Some great designers like Dior , Marchesa, Armani Prive and others have dress the stars with this style.

Such as Olivia Wild’s green Gucci dress that she wore to the Golden Globes this year. She literally let me speechless, she looked stunning and oh sooo very pregnant!!

More stars sported this look at the Golden Globs. Like Cate Blanchet’s lace gown from Armani Prive that was so sophisticated and sexy as well with that long bare back. And Naomi Watts liquid silver Tom Ford dress with a crossed back which is the perfect example of a simple dress that has some sassy detail in the back.

But what is really cool is that this style is being  translated into normal day wear. Some brands like Brandi Melville,Top Shop and The look book are the ones sporting it( in the picture above).  But I’m sure that in no time all brands will do!

I definitely want each and every one of this t-shirts and dresses in my wardrobe. There simple, yet trendy and girly withy a hint of sexy. Is a must for every girl, so they can feel comfortable and sexy at the same in the middle of the day.
