Royal Blue

01 Hello to all my fabulous friends around the world.  After I took a little brake, I am finally back. Ready to work on my blog again.

Today I decided to go for fashion comfort with a very simple outfit and accessories that play a big roll.

I don’t know about you ladies, but sometimes all I have in my mind is about accessories.  It doesn’t really matter what I choose to wear, because I know if I choose the right purse, sunglasses, or shoes, I can look fabulous even if the cloths are very simple.  You don’t have to have the most impressive outfit, just coordinate everything in a beautifully way and figure out how to add some extra glam to your look.

Here for you, is a little style inspiration :)

I totally love the combination between royal blue and lite beige/brown.  This is a very youthful vibe, and the royal blue to me is a happy color. I feel it brings so much light to my life and puts me in the best fashion mood.  I couldn’t resist to combine the royal blue with the beige/brown to me this is refined and tasteful appearance that is a great way to look sensational. Also it is such a comfortable outfit, for day time.  The blouse is loose, the fabric is perfect for the Summer, and the shorts are just so easy to wear all day long. If you don’t want to wear the heels, no worries, you can also look very chic with flats.

Stay fabulous!

Fashion Culture with Burberry

When we talk about today’s most important fashion industries in the world, our first thoughts may fall to Paris, Milan, London, or New York.
But what about the rest of the world? What about Africa, India, the Middle East….and I can go on and on. Each country, in every region, has its own and incredibly pure sense of fashion.

While many people may feel that our clothing is just an everyday necessity or a way of introducing ourselves to the world, for many others it represents their cultures and beliefs.
Fashion lives with us and exists in our world forever. Fashion changes as we as humans evolve and change as well.

Communities of people in countries around the world create their own fashion trends using all the elements Mother Nature has to offer.

They express thoughts, beliefs, religion and their own style of life through fashion.

Throughout all of time, designers have also expressed their own imaginations through cultural clothing.

The way how each creates art on a body with layers of culturally exquisite luxuries such as fabrics and jewelry…the way how they mix and match colors, makeup and different accessories… everything is executed with such fabulous perfection, not only as a way to express a cultural meaning, but also as a means of seduction or ways to captivate the eyes of an audience.

These “body paintings” tell the world and history so much about who we are.

That is why fashion is so much more than all brands put together.

Fashion is an instant connection to the world, and I even believe, that in a sense, God is also a designer.

Today, I chose to highlight a Burberry top.

Burberry, created by Thomas Burberry, is a British luxury brand that has been in business since1856 and is particularly famous for its signature trench coat and plaid patterns.

Today, when I think about different cultures, I can see the representation of British culture very well within Burberry; and I feel that the pattern of Burberry brings a pronounced touch of class and elegance to my outfit.

One reason why I love Burberry so much is because the Burberry Foundation was stablished in 2008 as a philanthropic organization dedicated to helping young people realize their dreams through the powers of their own creativity. In 2011, Burberry Porsum also highlighted its London Fashion week with African Fabrics and showed the world just how much Africa cultures have to offer today’s Fashion industry.

I choose to wear my Burberry blouse with a white skirt, brown or gold heels, and a brown purse. To me, this is classy and chic but still a very youthful and fun outfit :)

Stay fabulous!

The GJ Dress

The GJ dress

Let me share with you the history behind the GJ dress featured in today’s post:

Since I was a little girl, I was always fascinated with the idea of designing my own clothes.

I remember cutting sheets and cloths until my mother had to take them away from me.  You see, I always dreamt of designs in my mind that I just couldn’t find in any store.

So, when I decided to start my blog, I thought that maybe…just maybe…I could show little-by-little my own fashion designs, but of course, I am not a professional designer, I’m just someone with a huge imagination, right? :)

Then, one day while having tea after tennis, I was discussing the Stunning Chic blog with a new friend.  We shared many of the same childhood fashion fantasy stories.  She was telling me when she was a young girl, she always wanted to be in style and have beautiful clothes as well.  But she decided to go to college and become a professional Fashion Designer.  WOW! I could not believe it!  I told her how much I would love to make a dress, but I just did not know how to execute the idea.

So another day (while talking about fashion, of course) I showed her some pictures and explained how I would love to have a dress that looked like this.  Amazingly, from those ideas, and our discussions, she created this fabulous dress!

My wonderful friend’s name is Jaimi Peterson Runyan, and I feel like she and I make a perfect team together.  Both of us love fashion as a way to express to the world who we really are!

We decided that this dress needed to be light pink and black with gold buttons, the three colors represent my personality, and this blog, the best!

I’m so proud to share with all of you our very first dress.  The GJ dress!

Why “GJ“?  “G” for Gemma, “J” for Jaimi :)

Be creative on your own, and stay Fabulous!
