Burgundy and Grey, Part Two.

DSC_1007

Hello my friends,

I know a few month ago I posted “Burgundy and Grey,” but to be honest, it is definitely one of my favorite color combinations, and even more so now since Burgundy has become one of the hottest colors of this Season.   So, for these two big reasons I decided to do another post with the same two colors.

The outfit I chose today consists of Jeans with a timeless grey Blazer and a silky blouse to feel and look youthful and sophisticated :)

To complete this look, and give some clear definition between the pieces, I add divine nude-colored high heels

So the question is, where would I wear this ?? …well, wonderful news my friends, you can wear this outfit on just about any occasion, day or night.  You can go for a shopping day in this outfit looking just stunning, or, go out for dinner feeling just amazing :)

My big question for all of you: what about some Burgundy Footwear ?? Is Burgundy a color that you are ready to have in your wardrobe ??? Share with me your are with me your thoughts, I really do appreciate hearing all your opinions  :)

And my big advice for this week: remember to shop for chic, classic pieces that can stay with you forever :)

I leave you all until next week with another one of my favorite quotes from Coco Chanel:

“I don’t do fashion, I am fashion ” :)

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!

A Touch of Style

Hello gorgeous ladies.

Today my forte is: “Low bugets with high expectations!”

I’m the girl who knows all too well my Gucci from my Burberry as well as TJM from H&M. I guess what I’m trying to say here is that style + class doesn’t mean $$$$$$.
The point is, to be passionate about knowIng your own style, and enjoy the ride.

I highly recommend exploring every store, from high end boutique regulars stores to low budgets stores. Each are full of their own surprises.  For me, it is hard to focus on just one designer or brand. Why should I eat just one type of chocolate when there are many other flavors out there ?  Get in the fashion fever mood and try different options.

Sometime as women, we feel like: “Well, if my friend looks so stylish with those clothes…or my coworker with that sexy intellectual outfit….or what about the sassy girl from next door…must line up each of those different looks.”
But honestly girls, is not about she or them!  Instead of worrying about everyone else’s look, let’s try to understand our own style.  Be independent in your choices!
Develop a good relationship between your taste and your wallet, enhancing productive projects for your closest, but making sure your account doesn’t drain.

I noticed that many times we get so stuck in all the fashion magazines.  Every time I go to the grocery store and am waiting in line to pay, I grab a magazine and look at what all the famous people are wearing, with all the extravaganza.
For the celebrities who look so perfect on the Red Carpet, or on any occasion when the paparazzi capture their photograph, its totally surreal the difference between them and us. Their image is their job. Behind each of them are many fashion and style advisers, making sure each and every detail is going to look impeccable, but there is so much excitement in fashion for all of us. We create moods and show our own emotions according how we feel in each particular moment. There is so much HONESTY in what we wear everyday.

The point is: There is no excuse to not look fabulous and feel pretty about ourselves, there is a budget for every smart woman.
Look inside yourself and choose your preferences wisely.
Is a win win situation.

Stay Fabulous!!!

El secreto para verse chic y elegante, no es la cantidad, sino la calidad.lo mas importante es tener nuestro propio estilo,nuestra propia identidad,nuestra presencia, es nuestra carta de presentación, dejemos huellas de clase y glamour en nuestra vida diaria. No hay escusas para no hacerlo.

Stay Fabulous !!!!

A mix of few designer and brand together,nothing wrong with that. Smart shopper is the key :)

So today I mix  warm and cool colors. Blue is one of my favorite, make me feel fresh and happy, and if I add some camel, brown the outfit look so rich :)

 

Summer in my closet

My favorite time of the year is around the corner. The days are long. The sun is bright. The skies are blue.

New leaves and flowers are making an appearance, showing their best colors.  The Green and the Yellow decorate the beautiful landscape of California.

Summertime is a huge fashion scene! The seductive energy from this scenery brings the best and most creative fashion trends.

Designers work very hard to be innovative each year.  The effort to prepare for summer is just incredible!  This is also time for us to illuminate our closets, with all it’s eminent colors.

Allow me to share my excitement, and speak to you about a fabulous menu for this time of  year.

The Magnificent Pastels do not plan on going away anytime soon.  They inherent elegance and femininity.   I love the Baby Pink and the Baby Blue, the Peach and the Soft Watermelon, the Dazzling Blue, the Light Lavender, the Beige, and the Light Green.  In my opinion, the Pastels are a signature of refined taste.  When I think about pastels, I see the fashion icon Mrs. Jacqueline  Kennedy Onassis as the legendary First Lady who made her fingerprint in the fashion world with such grace.  She made a statement for sure with the unforgettable Pink Suite from Coco Chanel and she would be remembered as the First Lady with the most distinguished taste ever.

Perhaps the vivid colors such as the Red, the Electric Blue, the Fussia, and the Orange are also very trendy this  summer, in a very edgy way.

And of course, the flower-dresses are very attractive as well, making beautiful gardens.

Let’s not forget the art-work prints walking with such personality. There are many choices this season to play with. The Warm, the Neutral and Cool tones are the right direction for you to welcome the Summer in your closet.  I hope these colors can help you this season to bring a wonderful story to your life with many beautiful and memorable  pictures.

Stay fabulous !!!
