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

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….

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!!

Sooo I’ve been watching the Kourt & Kim Marathon…Loves It!

I’m currently Loving Kourtney’s style. I tend to go through various phases in my wardrobe…I went through an Animal Kingdom phase a year or two ago and I’m feeling my inner wild child coming back!…Kourt wears a LOT of animal print and is the source of my inspiration for now so Here are some of her looks I’ve loved.

Versus Who you ask? The Woooorld! hehehe just kidding 😉

This Magazine on the other hand Is Not!! If you have ever see Vs. in the stores it will Definitely catch your eye. If not for the large size alone (larger than all the rest of the fashion etc magazines) the Amazing artwork and Different perspective will have you entranced in a lovely, colorful, art & fashion lala land…oooh Fabulousness! The articles are quite captivating too! As a self-diagnosed person with A.D.D. I found myself reading more articles than I do in most of my other magazines of choice which usually consists of me looking at all the pretty pictures. I reeeally loved the Unpublished article on Kate Moss before she hit it big..thumbs up from me. Anywho…check it out. You’ll like it. OH and there is a constantly updated website considering the printed magazine is bi annual. Here’s the link: http://www.vsmagazinelive.com

…you would think I’m being paid for this lol but I assure you I am not…just appreciate good work especially when it Inspires! 🙂
