A Little Vintage is Never Too Much!

DSC_0186Ok ladies, let’s open our hearts and be true to our feelings towards fashion. Yes, sometimes we all go shopping thinking we just want to see something that completely blows our minds away. That one piece of clothing that makes us feel beautiful, confident, chic and fabulous.

But seriously, how many times do we find the magical clothing we were searching for?

The thing is, sometimes I get overwhelmed by all the different fashion possibilities out there, and just want to add my own personal touch to an outfit I once loved before, like today.  Today, I am with a vintage spirit!

Normally, when we use the word Vintage, our minds immediately think about old or second-hand clothes.  But there is much more to this concept regarding fashion.

Vintage is about clothing that holds precious memories for us.  And I know each of us has some favorite piece of clothing that reminds us of some happy moment, or of a style and time period we just love.

Like this black Blazer I decided to wear today.  It’s a bebe® Blazer I bought like nine years ago, and I still treasure it because I love that it is tailored to fit so perfectly to my body shape.

How to make a Vintage style work for you, without looking out of fashion?

First, investigate your wardrobe and find that favorite item that once-upon-a-time made you feel like a movie star.

Then style it with something youthful to create your own new personal style.

And don’t forget, the best feeling in the world is when somebody compliments your outfit, and you know you recreated the look using your own imagination :)

I always use this expression: It doesn’t take a fortune to look fabulous, our imaginations have no limits, so why not use them :)

So, let that fashion designer inside of you walk on the High Street feeling like Heidi Klum is right besides you….and boy would she would be so jealous of you…:)

Maybe we can all get into a Vintage mood and use a vintage fashion style sometime this week :)

I leave all of you with one of my favorite quotes: “Each day is a page in your fashion story.”  Today, for me, it is Vintage :)

Stay Fabulous!

Enchanted by Pastels

DSC_0145After coming back from vacation in New York, I’m back and so happy to connect with all of you again.

I missed you while I was gone :)

Once again I decided to show pastels, because honestly, I can never get enough of these pretty colors…they’re just so me 😉

Pastels are like cupcakes. They are the soft side of me. When I think about pastels, I see roses, lollipops, cherry blossoms, candy kisses and even THE beautiful face of a baby :)

Pastels have deep meaning in fashion. They are universal colors that represent the delicate and the sophisticated sides of a woman together.  They symbolize romance and are fashionable colors for playtime.

There are so many ways to be stunning with pastels.  If you have a good tan to your skin, pastel will also look absolutely fabulous on you.

But we need to be careful, because pastels can also be a little tricky.  If we don’t style them in the right way, we can look like an Easter Egg LOL…

Pair pastels with grey, black or navy blue for the right touch.

Check out the pastels I show off in these pictures. You don’t have to necessary wear them the exact same way, but I hope they give you an idea of some colors that look just beautiful together :)

Stay fabulous!

Romper Review

DSC_0118One of the hottest and most popular fashionable trends for this Summer are Jumpsuit/Rompers. Yes, they are back big-time, as strong as ever!

It is unbelievable how our tastes do change over the years. Before, I would never even try to put on a Romper, and I definitely would never go out shopping just for one.

In my mind wearing a Romper was always like making a fashion crime. But each and everyday I saw more and more Rompers all over the fashion magazines, and I realized that maybe it was just one of those trends that was out there for so long that I never even gave them a chance.

So, I injecting some fashion confidence in myself, I finally got in the market, looked around, and bought my first one.

The good news about the Jumpsuit/Romper is that you can dress them down with some flats or sandals; or dress them up with heels and accessories.  You just need to choose the style that suits you best.

Wether you are searching for the glamorous or a casual look, there is definitely one out there to fulfill your own taste. Pretty much any shape of purse will go fine with the Romper: big ones, little ones, clutches, cross body bags…and with the right jewelry, it just depends on the occasion.

Many times they can even save the day, because you don’t have to put too much thought into a full Romper outfit.

So if you are scrambling in your closet for that particular outfit to make a statement, get into a Jumpsuit/Romper mood and get ready to Rock!

But a few things you need to know first:   For women who are not very tall, short Rompers are the best way to go.  For women with average sizes, long or short Rompers are totally perfect.  And for women, like me, who are not fortunate to have any Fanny – well, I prefer to choose one that is a little loose on the body, to make sure I don’t look like I’m wearing a potato sack LOL…

I will say, though, that even when Rompers are now one of my favorite items for this Summer, they are still a challenge in the ladies room LOL…But looking fabulous is always worth the sacrifice, right ladies!!

So embrace the sophisticated or laid-back girl with this staple trend.

Stay fabulous!!!
