Look Out!

24 May

This is part of how I see my summer well not even just the summer really… more like how I see my life (in part). Looking out the window wherever I may be and seeing something different. Oh to travel!! **insert long sigh here** 

Hope your summer plans are finalized!

XOXO

Music Mondays

16 May

So pretty much every week (sometimes every couple of days or so) there is a theme to my music and it turns out to mold what I wear and has a bit of bearing on how I spend my little amount of free time… like last week when I was listening to Britney Spears’ latest album Femme Fatale with her tracks “He about to lose me” and “Criminal” on repeat…for days…and I went to the gym more than my usual (great workout songs btw) my outfits were quite Bold and Sexy too if I do say so myself 😉 and I was just really hype!!  Now there is this week…we’ve been having a lot of rain here in Jersey and I’m in a very Barnes & Nobley mood ya know?? Anywho I stumbled on this group of women called GirlCrisis on YouTube they cover various artists’ music from Sade to Nirvana…..L-O-V-Eing Them!! They have a flowy vibe to them. You’ll see…so they kind of remind me of the film -Virgin Suicides. This is great so I can put to use these awesome silk blouses I thrifted last week!

Enjoy

Now & Then

14 Apr

Trend: POLKA DOTS

Get It or Forget It?  I absolutely looove polka dots and have for a long time! From Shoes to blouses, t-shirts, skirts,even my bed sheets are polka dots! Anywhogle I think polka dots are a Go! Can they Ever go Out-of-Style?? It feels Wrong just to Think of such a thing!

How To: We have options here. You can be subtle and wear a little POP of PDs say in a blouse or scarf, you can wear PDs head to toe I Do Not recommend that though…(Just because it is on the runway Does Not make it right!!) Or you can try my personal favorite and mix a PD print with a little stripes or print of some sort. When it’s done right..looks fab! Take a look-see.

Then: Bianca & Mick Jagger (1970’s) LOVE this!!

Now: Moschino SS rtw 2011

The Trend….

12 Apr

Trend: COLOR BLOCKING

Get It or Forget It?  I say Try It!! BUT Beware…this trend may be Short Lived.

How To? Instead of buying a piece that has a bunch of crazy bright colors all over it opt for individual jewel toned pieces.

Por exemplo:

Less: Halle circa 1991

 

More: Gucci S/S 2011 rtw

ALL of these individual pieces can be toned down for everyday wear. Use your imagination and have a Bright Spring and Summer!!
