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!

The Little Black Jacket

DSC_0759

Hello beauties,

Today is time for me to talk about the Little Black Jacket.

We all know about the little black dress, but this particular Jacket plays a big role in our wardrobe.

The little black dress, and the Little Black Jacket, are big staples from
Chanel.

This piece of clothing is definitely a symbol of feminine elegance.

This Jacket came to life in 1954 when Mademoiselle Chanel decided to surprise the Fashion industry with a uniquely sophisticated Jacket that to today is still a timeless piece of art :)

For the Little Black Jacket, there are no rules!

Because the best part is that you literally can wear it with everything of any color.
Fashion advice:

Make sure if you are going to invest in this item, look for quality, meaning good fabric and beautiful buttons because this Jacket will be your best friend forever :)

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!

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!

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!

The Little Black Dress


The most elegant, but simple and sophisticated, Little Black Dress.

Behind this magic dress is an incredibly classy lady.  Not exactly created by Coco Chanel, but she definitely was the one who gave the power to this dress.

Coco Chanel, the woman with more style than any woman in the world.  The woman who started with nothing and ended up building an empire.  Thanks to her, every woman in this world can feel sexy, classy and like a truly beautiful lady.  Coco Chanel was the fashion icon of all times, and her Little Black Dress is the only one that all women with different tastes agree to wear as a universal uniform around the world.

It is a feminine piece of cloth every women should have in their closet.  It is the one dress that you can wear anytime of the year and on any occasion to feel confident and know that you are safe; because the LBD is not only a sign of class and style, it is the iconic symbol of fashion.  It is a magic dress that will make any moment unforgettable!

Most fashion trends don’t stay forever, but this is one that will live forever in the fashion world.  It is the signature of style, it is that essential piece of clothing that will take you anywhere, and make you feel amazing!

You can create so many different styles with this dress, because it is so versatile and easy to play with.

Many ways to wear your LBD :
For a special occasion, business meeting, dinner party, girl’s night out, chic cocktail party, or even, if you add a white blouse, it is perfect for a job interview!

There are so many opportunities to take advantage of with this wonderful dress.  I Love to accessorize this dress with a splash of gold – lets say a gold watch or a gold clutch purse.  I feel gold gives to this dress such a rich look.  Also, for more formal engagements, pearls are the perfect way to go.  Let’s embrace our feminity with the LBD!

The great news about this dress, is that you can mix and match it with any color depending on the event.

I chose the Little Black Dress today because I truly fell in love with it’s style.

To me, the white collar with this outfit brings out a delicate, youthful, vintage look.  And of course, with this style, because of the collar, you don’t need big accessories. Keep it simple and classy.

I end this tribute to the epic Little Black Dress saying, as Coco Chanel did,
“Look for the woman in the dress. If there is no woman, there is no dress.”

Stay fabulous !

You don’t need all this brands, all what you need is the idea how to accessorize this beautiful dress.

El pequeño elegante y sofisticado vestido negro, un vestido que todas las mujeres deben tener en sus closset. No exactamente creado por Coco Chanel, pero sin duda alguna fue ella, la que le dio vida y poder a este Fabuloso vestido, esta simple piesa de ropa, te puede llevar a muchos eventos con la seguridad de elegancia y glamour.
El secreto está en usar los elementos adecuados, para que la ocasión sea mágica.
Yo quise usar accesorios con un splash de oro, le da un look más esquisito y femenino.

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 !!!
