Michael Kors

DSC_0190 (1)

Hello to all you beauties, I’m finally back from vacation, and all the time I was away I couldn’t wait to get back and chat with you again :)

Today, my subject is Michael Kors, one of the greatest designers of all time.

I always get so excited talking about him, so I just couldn’t resist writing about him today here with you and spreading my thoughts about this iconic designer.

There is so much to say about him, and there is so much that makes him so different from other designers. I can only fully describe him as a storm of glamour, and definitely one of the best American designers.

To me his imagination seems to have no limits, and he is far above the Fashion Land.

A fashion authority of his own, Michael Kors captivated and seduced the American and international audience. Emerging in the fashion world, his creations harnessed a fabulous affinity between women of different ages and stereotypes. With a superior knowledge and understanding of a woman’s taste and personality, he is able to create amazing pieces of fashion art in clothing, shoes, purses etc.; and he doesn’t get caught up in showcases with just the super skinny Barbie Doll models. His creations go way beyond that!

The greatest part about him, is that any women can identify herself with his creations. From the soft silk stunning leggings, the highest quality leather purses, the fascinating touch in his shoe collections, not to mention, the amazing creativity and beauty in all his accessories. He definitely knows how to emphasize every woman’s femininity.

Also, when I think about high-end fashion designers, my brain immediately shows me a big sign with his name on it.

When you buy anything from Michael Kors, you not only buy what is in style, or what’s looks attractive in your eyes, the best part is that you are buying quality and sophistication.

As I immerse myself in his designs, I fly away feeling like I’m almost of Royal Blood wearing anything made by him. In fact, I can never forget the first purse I owned from his collection. A leather Camel purse. Wearing that purse to me was like owning a piece of art from Salvador Dali. Every time I walked with this fabulous purse on my shoulder, I felt like I owned the show, and I had so much power of confidence.

Staring into the sunset wearing his sun glasses with a cup of tea in my hand makes me think about his fashion Kingdom where all the magic is transported into beautiful pieces of art and glamorous accessories.

I truly love and live for fashion, so you can understand what I mean when I say my heart races and I get so excited whenever I see one of his new fashion collections. I’m so looking forward to seeing more of his work. His collections are always chic, elegant, luxurious and most importantly, timeless.

My styling advice to all my readers today is to let you all know that with the right Michael Kors accessories, you really don’t need to be so worried about your clothes, because his watches, sunglasses, belts and purses speak for themselves.

Today I chose to show you this beautiful Purse from Michael Kors – you just have to love the style and the color, it pretty much goes with everything :)

Stay fabulous!!

Burgundy: The Hottest Fall Color!

DSC_0164

Hello my fashion friends, hope everyone had an amazing weekend :)

Have any of you started wearing or thinking about fall colors yet?  If not, let’s start preparing our wardrobe for this Fall and Winter seasons together, since two heads think better that just one, right ?? LOL…

Yes, the day has come when we have to talk start talking about the fall again, and this year one of the hottest Fall colors is Burgundy !!!

To be honest, I was never a big fan of this color until recently.  I guess it is all about having an open mind, trying to make new fashion statements, and most importantly having fun doing it :)

What do we know about Burgundy?  Well, I found out that burgundy is the perfect connection to the Fall season as well as a remarkable color in many top fashion collections this year.  We know that it is a deep dark red, very strong, and rich, that we can definitely take advantage of and use in many different ways.  Keep in mind, burgundy is also a great color to get into the Holiday mood as well :)

So if you are wondering how to pair this color with others, here are some of my ideas, like my little son always says: “Ready…Set….Go” LOL!!

Five Burgundy fashion inspiration tips, just for you:

1. Burgundy and light grey or silver – one of my favorite combinations.

2. Burgundy and navy blue – a very rich look.

3. Burgundy with white – a very youthful look for a casual occasion, but also for formal attire as well.

4. Burgundy and camel – this is another one of my favorites as well. These two colors together are like an open invitation for the Fall, and if you add some denim to them, you’ll totally Rock :)

5. Burgundy and black – even when they are both strong colors, if you are looking for the sophisticated look, this can work perfectly. Try a burgundy blouse with a high waste shirt – very classy and elegant!

And some extra tips: Burgundy also looks great in leather, such as leather shoes, purses, even a leather jacket which you might consider incorporating into your timeless wardrobe.  If you want burgundy to be the prime color in your outfit, a coat, a sweater, or some jeans can be used with it to totally bring out your high class signature, as was my preference in this post.

I chose this burgundy skort today because for the California weather, it is just perfect :)

And my last thought, don’t just stick to the high street when shopping this fall.  I always recommend investigating all different type of stores – from the high end to the low budget. Let’s all be the fashion police, and see for ourselves just how much we can save and how much fun we can have while doing it.   So raise your hands if you agree with me…..LOL

I leave you all once again with one of my favorite quotes: “Always keep your eyes open. Keep watching. Because whatever you see can inspire you.” —Grace Coddington

Stay Fabulous Beauties !

The Last Minute Fashion Call

 

DSC_0057

Hello gorgeous people.

Today I want to talk about fashion emergencies :)

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I feel like I just don’t have enough time to think about what to wear the next day, especially weekends when we rush out to enjoy the many beautiful sceneries in CA.  So that is what I call a Fashion emergency – putting an outfit together in like less then 10 minutes.

Whatever I decide to wear, I always want to look chic, but also be comfortable.  So today I chose to wear a pair of jeans with a simple white top, but enhanced it with a Navy Blue Blazer.

I think the jacket, and gold buttons on it, gives this ordinary outfit a very rich vibe.

I chose the leopard pattern high heels, but other flat styles could look stunning as well.

I really believe with the correct basics, a stylish jacket, and the right pair of shoes, we can always make a fashion statement.

And as fashion rules:

Choose a casual outfit that is comfortable and suggests fun, but always maintain class and style.

Blue and white colors will never be out of style, but the right tailored jacket on top will bring out the classy and stylish look your looking for.  So one thing you absolutely need to add to your wardrobe is Navy Blue Jacket.  But make sure it is tailored to fit your body and shows off your curvy silhouette, if not you’ll just look like a hot dog wrapped in a bun. :)

Another good tip is find yourself a pair of jeans that totally flatters you. We all have that one favorite pair of jeans we feel awesome in, and if you don’t, then spend some time finding a pair – they’ll last you forever.

And my last advice, no matter what you wear, always be confident about yourself.  Realize we don’t have to try so hard when figuring out what to wear.  Just being our natural selves is always a winning situation.  And if it is Target or Prada, or even both together, always take pride about how you look :)

Stay Fabulous!

Relax in Casual Style

DSC_0068Hello beauties, today I want to show a very simple and casual way to dress for a Sunday afternoon.

The right casual style can suit any of us, if we are smart with our choices.

Wonders can be done with simple casual clothes. With the correct basics and right accessories, an ordinary outfit can look so very chic!

Casual summer clothes were meant to be easy to wear and comfortable, especially for a relaxing day with the family, or of course any day just shopping.

Putting together a cute outfit is so easy and fun!

Here are my basic rules to look sharp when I’m dressing casual:

– It is so important that whatever you choose to wear, it fits your body properly and all colors match.

– If I’m wearing very inexpensive clothes, I make sure my accessories are of very good quality.  I will say, at least two master piece accessories are needed to bring perfection to any of my simple outfits: the Purse and Shoes. They need to be the center of my look :)

– You can pair up any flat shoes, and take glamorous classy steps to elevate your casual style, but please, leave the sandals for the beach, and the sneakers for running :)

If you have the class and the style, you can wear a potato bag and still look amazing.

So relax ladies, and stay fabulous!

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!

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!

Girl On The Go!

Bringing back fashion for the girl on the go !!

The sound of silence feels incredible and makes me think how amazing it is to be a women. We are always on the go.
We are mothers, wives, best friends, professionals …OMG…everything, not to mention the housekeeping part LOL…

But truthfully, the question is: do we really pay attention on ourselves? It is so easy with our busy routines to get caught in our sweat pants and flip flops or plain sneakers, jeans and a T-shirt.

However, lets not forget our identity just because the day is not long enough. It doesn’t mean we have to quit being women. Just because we became mothers, and put some weight on (talking for my own experience), it doesn’t mean we should loose pride in ourselves.

Taking care of ourselves is so important in so many aspects. The way we project life, our relationships with our husbands, partners, and everybody else. Self confidence plays a big roles in our minds. Sometimes it is good to analyze ourselves and appreciate who we are.
Reaching out for a little help in the fashion department can sometimes be a good answer.

We often admire how other women look, and it is easy to just let ourselves go looking for the wrong excuse to be some new woman that deep inside we don’t really like. Don’t be satisfied with the woman you have become. Sometimes we can be our own worst enemy.
Don’t put yourself on hold just because your schedule is too busy. The best gift you can give to yourself is self-confidence.
Get excited about yourself! Bring the chic back! Take a look in the past and think about how you were when you first dated your husband or partner. Remember those times? We spent so much time in the mirror; we wore heals; we did our makeup and hair; and were just shinning all over. And most importantly, we enjoyed the feeling. That, girl, is still in you. She never left, you just let her get a little lazy.

So shake it, shake it! Bring back the sex appeal and get that drop dead gorgeous diva back :)
So, have a cup of tea with me and enjoy the fashion tips:

  • Allow yourself to go shopping.
  • Pick just a few things that will make you feel pretty. No need to spend a fortune, just purchase something you can wear a different way.
  • You could team different colors together with the same purpose.
  • Get a new pair of flat stylish shoes ( easy to wear with everything ), and if you like to dress up a little more on the weekends, or go for a date with your hubby, maybe a nice new pair of heals;
  • 1 or 2 stylish jeans;
  • 1 or 2 delicate blouses (silk, linen or cotton are very IN);
  • A few pairs of shorts (black or maybe blue, you can do so much with this colors);
  • A few fresh and youthful tops (pastels are so classy);
  • A stunning blazer (my favorite thing);
  • Get just a few useful accessories ( if you are not too crazy about bracelets and too much bling bling like me );
  • Get a nice feminine belt;
  • A nice purse. I would choose a purse with a solid color that will match with every outfit you wear ( black, white, beige or brown ); and
  • A beautiful pair of sunglasses

You don’t have to buy everything in one day..do it little by little.
Do your hair, get a manicure and a pedicure.
Challenge yourself to a complete new look.
Don’t be afraid to do a drastic change in your life for the best.
Don’t look for anyone’s approval; only your own.
And bring the magic back!
In this outfit, I chose nice pink jeans, with a grey linen blouse and a black blazer. But if you don’t want the blazer, a black sweater around your shoulders can also look very chic, for a relaxing day :)
With some sliver high heals, a silver belt and a silver purse….To me, the metallic silver accessories give the outfit a glamorous effect for a nice day on the go.
Cheers to the new you!
Stay fabulous!

Timeless Wardrobe

 

Today I woke up feeling amazing. It is one of those days, when my mind flies away in so many different directions.

Today it is all about dreams. I know I am a big dreamer, but dreams are free, and we don’t have to pay taxes for that, right? :)

So, from fashion fairyland, I recharged my Batteries and got inspired!

Now I’m flying to my closet using my huge imagination. I usually find something I can alter, all I need is a little skirt, dress or pants. Anything I can play with and re-make to look fabulous and chic makes me feel like I just bought a new outfit.

The biggest satisfaction for me, is to create a new design with clothes that I wore many times before but just doesn’t look very attractive to my eyes anymore, or, …..is just out of style :)

I have rules in my closet.

Rule #1: Keep everything visible so you know exactly what you have.

Rule #2: Separate the clothes by season.

Rule #3: Clean up your closet every 3 months, you’ll be amazed how many things you’ll find in there.

Make your closet like your very own candy store. Work with everything you have, organize it by colors as well.

Be a smart shopper! Get needed additions when the great deals are out, and don’t buy just for the sake of buying, or get hooked on the junk addiction. Quality works better than quantity!

All I’m saying here is: don’t pay a fortune for everything you buy. I say, get your favorite brands at a great deal.

I just want to help all my fabulous readers to get inspired with your own wardrobe.

Sometimes we feel a little depressed for different reasons, especially at THAT time of the month. We might feel fat, bloated…. OMG, all those negative feelings! I call this HFD – “hormonal fashion disorder.” First thing we might want to do to get rid of this feeling is buy something just for the sake of buying. We might feel like: if we get something new from the store, it will make us happy. Almost like hunting for happiness.

But honestly, it doesn’t really work!

So when you get in one of those moods, go shopping in your own closet.

Recreate and outfit and make a new look that is remarkable.

Lets face it, as women we love beautiful clothes, so why not play dress up as therapy? And it’s also a fine way to relieve stress.

In case you doubt your abilities to be a great designer, and you don’t want to ruin that skirt or pants that you’re not too crazy about, don’t worry, in my fashion fairyland there is a solution for everything.

Get inspired by your accessories. Try a nice belt, or change the buttons. Maybe add some jewelry. There are so many ways to be creative.

In the end, you will have the most marvelous, fearless, unexpected look.

I will show you today how to reinvent an outfit:

I had this Bebe suit for many years. I love the color, I love that it is linen and I love the tailor jacket. But the style of the pants was off. So I decided to cut it and make a fabulous short-pants suit, and it was ready to go.

I can honestly say, I feel totally happy with the results, and what I originally paid for that suit… even after all these years, it’s so worth it :)

I decided to wear a black top with this suit, to give some contrast.

I chose this black purse because I love the style of the gold chain, it makes the outfit much more elegant.

The white watch is perfect for Summer, it brings a youthful look to the suit. And the beige high heals….they’re the perfect combination.

Suggestions: I highly recommend not saving everything, but definitely those cloths you love, or once loved the way you looked in them. Also consider keeping your good quality items, for example, those made of fabrics like linen or silk.

Our imaginations have no limit, we just need to make it work :)

Stay Fabulous!
