White Coat

Hello gorgeous friends

Fall and winter are about to let us show our best fashion staples.

Living in Europe for a few years really made me appreciate cold weather fashion, but here in CA now it’s totally a different story LOL..

We have seasons of course, but it is never really that cold.

So today I would like to you talk about the one piece of clothing that can definitely speak for itself when the weather starts to change no matter where you are.

I’m talking about Your Coat.  That large piece of fabric that hugs you and brings you a certain feeling of comfort.  For me, a coat is almost like a blanket.  That blanket you just love to snuggle on a cold day :)

But of course, this particular blanket needs to bring you style and class as well, right ?  Well, Coats can for sure make their own strong fashion statements this time of the year.

So this is how I’ll manage to stay in style here in CA during the cooler time of the year :

Due to the weather here in CA, I don’t need a heavy-duty sweater under my Coat, so all I need is a light blouse and a pair of Jeans, a cute little Hat… and I’m totally appropriate for the occasion.

Today I chose and off-white coat, because to me the style and the color of the coat is just so classy, and most importantly, it matches beautifully with all other colors.  For me, off-white and black coats are a big part of my fall/winter wardrobe.

And when I don’t need the Coat, I can just take it off..it is just so simple and easy.

So with this look I present the casual Chic style once again.

I totally recommend investing in one or two long beautiful Coats for the changing weather.  What you wear under the Coat really doesn’t matter much because your Coat will be your voice saying to the world: “all eyes on me” :)

The right Coat may also likely be that one piece of clothing that becomes part of your daily life at least for six months or so out of the year.  Yes, they are your best friend for sure. :)

Stay fabulous!

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!

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!

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!

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!
