Trend Report: Print

 


As I previously mentioned, this Spring goes from a laid back vibe to a structured & very feminine end of the spectrum & when it comes to print there is a similar contrast. This year prints vary from classic & revamped classics to unseen fabrics. If you're a romantic fashionista you can rely on the endless amount of floral prints we'll see this spring & if you're more of a tomboy you can find comfort in athletic/linear prints. As for the rookie print of the year, one that a daring girl would wear...it is inspired by the deep blue ocean.

Minty Fresh

Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

Mint is such a gorgeous Color, one that for years I've been wearing on my nails every time the temperature raises. It makes my tanned little toes look gorgeous and summer-fresh in pair of high peep toe stilettos, so the image of a golden tan in a mint colored garment is exhilarating. This year my fashion dreams have come true, mint is the IT color (one of them) and as soon as I saw this dress I had to have it. I wanted to wear this baby the first day of summer,but I caved and styled it in a more winter proof way. Hope you like this look!

Trend Report Spring 2012: Silhouttes




This spring more than any other season has focused on color, however, I always get most excited about the sihouttes & details that go on to become trendy. I wonder if an Avant-garde shape will be introduced  by any labels or pherhaps an old one will make a comeback. Silhouttes in my opinion have the power of setting the tone for what's to come. A great example was the return of the maxi length a couple of years back, the flowy length set us on a vintage/bohemian track. Spring 2012's tone is almost an oxymoron, as pointed out by ELLE magazine and Mr. Oscar de la Renta, this season marks the return of the lady, on the other hand we can expect a very practical and laid back vibe. In this trend report you can see both sides. I hope you enjoy this!

Belated Valentine

Photobucket



Hello! Someone caught the Valentine's day blogging fever a little late over here, I've been spending lots of time with my Valentine this past week & have really had no time to blog. I had planned to wear some fab pumps I recently purchased with a gorgeous floral silky top, however, it was so very cold this day that I had no choice but to bundle up. Wearing my favorite coat that just so happens to be a beautiful pink hue was a great way to honor the holiday.

P.S. It was so cold, some of of the balloons shriveled up :(

Winter Daisies

Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

This is me being plain lazy! Is not everyday a girl wants to wear a gown & drape herself in pearls or wear silk pajamas to bed or even put on her night cream. I won't try to fool you & tell you "I spend the same 3 hours getting ready Monday-Friday than I do on girl's night out". In a day like this, all I want is to be comfortable & warm, which is why I layered on my most comfortable & warm pieces. As for my beauty routine in days like these, it's called, "the assembly line" & it takes me about 20 minutes rather than the usual 1hr to achieve this look. Some may say, there is nothing glamour-less to this look, but being a little tired doesn't excuse one to look like you've not even been near the shower in days. What do you wear on those days?

Wardrobe Tips 3 Special BDIB Edition

BDIB


I will most likely not be wearing red on Valentine's day, I think it's mostly because, I have these great pair of shoes & floral blouse that I've not worn yet and happen to look divine together. I wanted to honor the very fashionable holiday with a post, but couldn't find a way to do so, which is why Kristina's challenge to wear red as a part of this week's Bloggers Do It Better was the perfect fit for my blog. If you're still trying to figure out what to wear, I hope these 5 ideas are helpful.

Picnic

Photobucket

Hey Girls,
I've been a bad blogger & the universe has not been any better. I've had a dull & annoying week which lead to a lack of a photographer, posing energy, etc... I did however attend a picnic last friday, which called for casual attire. I was the only person wearing heels (like always). Regardless, I felt very casual & thought I'd share this outfit with you. Next week will be a good blogging week, I pinky swear. I didn'y need anything but cash & I.D. so I decided to rock my iPad case as a clutch. I was 1 of 3 girls amongst 80 men so my iPad proved useful.

Spring 2012 Trend Report

Trend Report Cover

Spring is fastly approaching & at that same rate our closets are shifting from neutral chunky knits to flowy brights. I'm excited to see my style transition from Winter to Spring and like every other season there are so many trends to chose from, which can become overwhelming & make it THAT much harder to shop for a new seasonal wardrobe; Agreat way to keep yourself organized is, a mood board or something similar. Before I even started a blog, I always made myself a trend report to strategically shop & now...I love sharing them with you. I will split Spring 2012 into a few parts, I decided to start with my favorite part.
Hope you enjoy it!

While Spring Arrives

WPhotobucket

When people ask me to describe my style, I find it nearly impossible to narrow it down to a few words,I'm the type of girl who goes on a stylistic journey every morning, I experiment with my clothes according to my feelings or what my taste is like that day. Regardless of how far outside my own thinking box I may go, I find myself going to a familiar place of, girly, polished, dressed-up fashion more often than not. This outfit shows just that. I love me a good floral & a good mix of classics, such as, the coat & lipstick. What's your signature style like?

I need to take in a little in the back of the dress...right?

Celeb Inspired: Blake Lively

Coat: Martin Grant $2500
Shirt: Vivienne Westwood Red Label $365
Skirt/Shorts: Vivenne Westwood Red Label $355
Shoes: Christian Louboutin Orniron $1150  

Remember that amazing moment when Sharon Stone donned her husband white shirt to salvage her Oscar de la Renta lavender silk skirt gone wrong?. Now, that's my type of girl. A woman who knows her style likes & dislikes, a woman who knows her body so well she's confident enough to know what will suit her best. It's diffucult for me to chose a current style icon knowing that the amazing ensembles they wear on the red carpet were not at all their choosing & I honestly wish stylists got more credit, which is why I adore Blake Lively. The fact that she puts together her own outfits & they are all so amazing speaks of her humble attitude & genuine sense of style, which is why I have a major girl crush on her. This outfit is by far my favorite outfit Blake has ever worn.  I hope you enjoy my recreation!
