Sweets for Thought

DSC_0241

Time for me to relax and eat my favorite Dutch Apple pie while typing my sweet thoughts about the invasion of different print types in the fashion industry.

I don’t know about you ladies, but for my personal taste, I love all the different prints that I now see everywhere.  It is a very modern and youthful trend – definitely unconventional in a good way.

All I see lately all over the store showcases are different prints and all kinds of fabrics, such as silk, linen, cotton and much more.  They resemble abstract expressionism and I think if Pablo Picasso was still alive he would agree with me.  Picasso was and artist of many styles, and abstract art was a part of his amazing talent.  So I think prints as an art expression brings a new flavor to the fashion world.

Remember the introduction of prints back in the 80s?  But this time the trend comes more powerful, and with such a enigmatic and elegant appearance.

For my personal taste, I prefer prints better on bottoms than tops.  

In my opinion, the skinny jeans with a little touch of print, are my favorite :)

I encouraged you to show that feminine silhouette, but keep in mind to add some prints to your a outfit in a delicate way.

Let’s make a mark on the fashion world this Spring and Summer, let’s be the ones who lead in fashion over this wonderful time of the year, with some stunning and inspirational looks.

Stay Fabulous.

Michael Kors

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!!

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!

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!

Remember Skorts?

DSC_0979Today I decided to share with you beautiful ladies my latest fashion obsession.

Yes, a SKORT!  Which isn’t quite Shorts, and not quite a Skirt!

It is an incredible piece of fashion that offers the elegant look of a skirt with the comfort of a pair of shorts.

This genius combination of a Skirt and a pair of Shorts is back with a vengeance after being all over Milan’s Runways a couple of seasons ago.

Gaining popularity with last year and this year’s summer styles, the Skort has finally become a hit.

Even many stars, including the famous model Kate Moss, are now very much into the new style of Shorts.

I personally recommend it for every woman’s wardrobe.

To me, one of my favorite items is high-waisted Skort with an oversized top and high heels.

This is just so perfect for an edgy modern look! Or, add a tank top and flats if you want to keep it a bit more casual and sporty. Hope you enjoy the post as much I enjoyed the photo shot.

Stay Fabulous!

Leather in Summer !

009 CSC_0610 (1)

Hello Divas,

Today the subject will be Leather, so grab a hot tea or something sweet and enjoy the discussion

When we think about leather clothes, we might immediately assume bad boys, sexy girls, or Rocks Stars, but seriously, leather has become a staple in a fashionista’s wardrobe.

It is hard to say exactly when leather became a part of the fashion world. Evidence shows that even in prehistoric times leather was used for clothing.

In the 1980’s, leather became very powerful with Punk Culture and then with Heavy Metal fans, like my husband LOL

But designers turned that image around and presented leather as chic sophisticated and fun.

This year and last year, leather appeared in collection after collection; and season-after-season, leather appears with the biggest personalities walking on the fashion street.

While leather was typically stereotyped as a cool/winter weather material, fashion trends do change!

Leather can be easily worn in all seasons, done in fresh beautiful colors from leather dresses, jackets, vests and leggings to shorts, tops and skirts.

I’ll show you that summer leather can be as comfortable as a pair of flip flops.

So, if you just can’t get enough with leather, don’t worry about it because this is a look set to be around for a long time.

My rules for leather:

I always love black with black, or black with white, using neutral colors for my taste, and if I choose a big purse, there is no need for big accessories.

Also, keep it simple and and tasteful because you always want to look classy never trashy

Stay fabulous.

The history of the Bikini can be traced back to the Roman Empire, when Roman women wore bikini-like garments for competitive athletic events.

Hundreds of years later, French women re-welcomed the Bikini, provoking controversy within the Church and French society.  The majority of people first thought this two-piece outfit was too risqué and scandalous, but little-by-little over time it became more acceptable around the globe.

Miss World beauty pageant contestants first wore bikinis in 1951, but the person who truly revolutionized the world with this unique outfit was the one and only Bridget Bardot, when she was first photographed wearing a Bikini at the Beach during the Cannes film festival.

Moving to the real subject of this post, I would like to open my heart to all of you gorgeous friends.

As women, we are often accustomed to thinking that bikinis only belong to Size Zero bodies without imperfections, or women who workout like everyday nonstop.

But truthfully, it is really all about how we feel inside with ourselves :)

Many women, like myself, are mothers, and of course with pregnancy our bodies change.

I am very proud to share with all of you my history: I gained over 75 pounds in nine months, and after my pregnancy I was very unhappy with the way I looked.   So I decided to change that immediately with healthy dieting, exercise, and so much work.  But I can tell you, I will never be the same size I was at age 18 or so, but I’m completely happy with who I am now.

No body is perfect, we all have imperfections, and if you don’t, you are one lucky girl!!

But for the majority of us, like it or not, cellulite and stretch marks are our-best friends for life. LOL

… And you know what? It’s no big deal!!

I believe from the bottom of my heart, that every woman has her own beauty, in her own way.

The secret is to accept yourself and be happy for who you are.

So if you think Bikini only belong to Victoria Secret models and Size Zero Chics, I will tell you I disagree a 100%!

It is not about size, it is not about a perfect body, is about being happy in your own skin :)

Remember, you are beautiful because there is only one you :)

 

So, while summer is here, get to the beach or the pool with your bikini and enjoy this precious time of the year.

I always say this: “don’t look for anybody’s approval, only your own.”

Stay fabulous!
