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!

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!

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!

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!

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!

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 !!!!
