Devotion to Black

Devotion to Black

01

My devotion to the color black started when I was very young, and I have always been very attracted to this color in so many of my fashion styles.

At one point in my life almost everything in my closest was black.

Why have I always been infatuated with this color, and why is black universally thought of as a flattering color?

I think its because in our minds, black makes us think we can hide any imperfection and make ourselves look slimmer. It works for every occasion, every hair style and every skin color. I feel like the color black accentuates all ages and sexes, both men and women love the color.

To me, the meaning of this color is glamour, and its fabulous! Black helps creates a magical seductive atmosphere around us that is the equivalent of confidence and power.

Why does the fashion world love black so much? Because it is so significant and prominent in our society. We can go anywhere in black, and always look in style.

Black is also an easy color to match pretty much with every other color, so it is always a good base to start with. Life is simplified yet pronounced with black!

With the color black, you can always look polished and smart. The color itself doesn’t come with its own price tag. Even if the outfit is inexpensive, it will never look cheap in black.

In my post today, I added some gold to this black outfit that appeals to my taste. I choose black with gold because I feel like it provide some glimmer in a fabulous way.

Sparkle in any occasion you desire, and get that amazingly look with black and gold.

Shine is on! …..and Stay fabulous!!!

From the glam to the farm, but always in style!

01

 

I’m always asking myself the rhetorical question, why do people think city styles and country styles have to be so different in the fashion world.

When we normally think about a farm, we think about flowers or plaid prints, denim and cowboy boots; and when we usually think about glamorous city-life, we think about blazers, high heels, polished and refined looks.

There are those stereotypes, but honestly they don’t necessary have to be so faraway from each other, I can show you how to use the same outfit for both locations.

Today I’ll show you a different outlook.  I joined two completely different styles simply using the same clothing, just by changing the accessories to quickly transform from a country/farm fashion style into a glamorous city fashion style.

To do this, I decided to wear beige shorts with a Navy blue top, a white blazer, brown heels, brown leather purse and aviator sunglasses for a city look…very glamorous!

Suede leather is a big part of a rustic country vibe.  So, for a country look, I simply removed the heels, took off the blazer, and added suede boots and a suede jacket, and I was ready for a country mood 😉

Embrace the Memorial weekend and forget about sleeping late or getting to the cocktail parties.  Go out shopping and catch those wonderful sales whether you’re looking for that glam look or that farm chic style.

If you are a city mouse but love to go to the country to connect with nature, just get inspired with how to look your best from the glam to the farm, and always be in style.

Accessorize to create your own country look or city style, and leave your own trademark!

Stay Fabulous!

Navigate in Style with Nautical Fashion

 

Nautical Style 1

Red, white and blue are not just the colors of the American flag, they are also the colors of Nautical Fashion Style – a very classy, breezy, summer trend to try.

And best part is, you can have so much fun with it!

Pulling off a Nautical style is so easy, and you don’t even need to have a yacht, or have to be going on a cruise.  Make a difference with this trend.

Enjoy the six months or so of Spring and Sumner to dress with this distinguished style!

Knowing the basics of a Nautical Style will give you that instant rich chic look, and here are a some ways you can get on board with this trend:

Start with a fitted blazer or sweater in navy blue, white or even blue and white stripes.

The white or navy blue stripes have big personality and they make you feel like a Rock Star.

Keep in mind, you can add other colors as well: yellow, watermelon and beige can also create an exquisite nautical style.

Tops and bottoms also play a big roll. For some extra style points, you can mix and match an orange top with a navy blue bottom to create an entirely new vibe.

The way you accessorize this look is key, and quality is very important.

For a truly Nautical look, choose accesories with gold.  Add some maritime details if you want, for example: a rope belt; a striped or white and blue handbag; and some wayfarer sunglasses.

For a more impressive naval appeal, pair your outfit with heels or flats to tailor the look to your own taste.

Channel your inner Sailor Chic with this trend.

Stay Fabulous!

Fashion in Starbucks

 

Fashion at Starbucks

Fashion at Starbucks

Starbucks has become one of the most popular social network sites.

The idea of experiencing a nice cup of coffee, socializing with some friends, simply chatting on FB and sometimes getting some work done on your computer….or even, maybe if your single and lucky enough, meet someone that could connect you to love.

I go there once in a while to socialize with friends and enjoy my taste for a good Earl Grey Tea. I can tell that many men and women love to stop there for a coffee on their way to, or in between, work.

Within just one hour, I can spot more than 5 or 6 uniquely different fashion types as I sip my tea.

It’s just amazing to me, how a coffee cafe can put so many different styles together: preppy, casual, gothic, business, sporty, and so many more.

I feel like I pay for a tea and I end up on one of the most exclusive fashion shows ever.

I look at the different people, and some styles give me great ideas that I can use myself. Other times I feel like saying: “lady, you have the body shape but what you’re wearing is a Fashion Disaster, so lets do a makeover on you.”

I wish I had a magic wand that I could use to spread these great fashion ideas around the world!

All what I’m saying here is: appreciate everything around you!

At the end of my visit to Starbucks, I go home happy because I take with me so much information about fashion. It is almost like putting all my ideas into a blender and extracting only the best ones.

The best advice comes from the observation of others – Street Fashion, as simple as going to Starbucks :)

Today I chose this outfit, as a Professional Chic look.

The skater skirt brings to this outfit a very classic look. It accentuates your waist and encourages you to show your delicate silhouette. These skirts come in different colors and patterns, so there is definitely one out there that will suit your personality and appropriate occasion.

The black chiffon blouse is the perfect combination for this skirt.

The black pattern leather shoes, with the bow on the side, is just so lady-like. “Feminine and sophisticated” is the message I want to say when I walk in these shoes.

Adding this beige purse with the gold chain ends it with a perfect finishing touch.

To me this is a WOW LOOK :)
Stay fabulous!
