Daytime to Nighttime in just 15 minutes!!!

11 Aug

Want to go from a Daytime look to nighttime one in just 15 minutes? Well, here are some tips that may help you accomplish that.

Daytime:

 

   

Zara Dress- $59.90

Zara Blazer- $79.90  (I recommend investing in a this blazer. You could get a lot of use out of it.)

Zara Shoes- $39.90

Go for a simple dress. A Simple dress should be appropriate for the office/school with a sophisticated blazer and a classic shoe. Simple makeup and hair up in a bun will make the look that much more appropriate for daytime.

Nighttime:

  

Shoe: Zara $79.90

Necklace: Forever 21 $9.80 (looks like a million bucks)

We can reuse the dress, take off the blazer and add some rocking heels. By Adding some beautiful jewelry, a little more make up, and putting your hair down, the outfit  will look more appropriate for nighttime events.

TREND ALERT: Fall 2012 Shoes

10 Aug

Fall is around the corner and there are so many fabulous fashion trends that I am loving. As many of you may start fall shopping soon (mostly for back to school), knowing whats in will make you know what to look for. Over the next couple of weeks and all throughout  Fall, “Get the look for less” posts would be highlighting fall trends.

Let’s get started

Shoes:

Beautiful dark corals are so in. Fun shaped heels and platforms will be seen this season.

Dior:

Loving the rich purple and the velvet material.

Tip: Always look at the platform before  judging if a heel is too high. Once eliminating the height of the platform, the heel becomes totally reasonable. Platforms give the ability to wear crazy high shoes without sacrificing comfort.

Hermes:

The brown and the dark blue will forever be colors that can be worn in the fall, thus, investing in a pair similar to these would be worth it. Once again,the platform makes the heel easier to walk in.

Tip: This type of shoe is a multipurpose shoe as it can act as both a daytime and a nighttime one. It could easily be incorporated into many outfit so you can get a lot of use out of it.

And of course, Chanel!

There are many things I love about this shoe. First, I think the color is a color that will be in EVERY single fall and could be easily worn all throughout the year. Second, since the heel is so thick, it would be so easy to walk in. Third, I love the little touch of the crystals at the top of the heel. Its something very unique that can totally make an outfit that much better. And lastly, the style of the shoe is timeless (like most of Chanel’s shoes) which makes it so comfortable.

Make sure to come back soon to find out about new accessory trends for the fall,

Super Simple 5-Step Manicure

25 May

into mind

I might not wear make-up everyday, but I always wear nail polish. Pretty much every day of the year. Not only because I like playing around with colour, and the application itself feels like meditation for me. Nail polish also keeps my nails healthy. I realise this might sound a little counterintuitive. A while ago someone asked me: “How come your nails look so nice even though you always wear nail polish? Some commenters have also said something like “I wish I could wear nail polish like this but my nails are too brittle”.
Let’s clear this up: Nail polish is not damaging to your nails. In fact, it can protect them from external influences that really are damaging, like skin care products, frequent washing, detergent, etc. It can also help to remind you to take better care of your nails: If you just put on a pretty colour, you might…
