24 Feb

The days are getting longer and the temperatures are rising, its that time of year again- Spring! One of the biggest trends that have hit the runways this Spring season is the back-to-basic black and white look. These two colours are classic  and staples for most women’s wardrobes and when paired together, it can be quite elegant.This trend has stormed runways in all cities and most recently during New York Fashion Week by top designers such as Michael Kors and Oscar Dela Renta. This trend has also appeared in almost all retail stores Spring 2013 collections including affordable fashion stores such as Zara, Forever 21,  H&M and Topshop.

Louis Vuitton  has also followed with the black and White contrast trend as well, however putting a different spin on it with a checkered pattern. Check mate?

My favourite piece that follows this trend can be found at Zara. It  this stripped blouse with pockets that can be paired with black trousers or leggings and a colorful shoe to make the outfit pop.

What are your thoughts on this trend? Yay or Nay?

Trend Alert: Military Chic!

26 Sep

Hey dolls,

First off, I would like to apologize for the lack of posts this past month! It has been crazy with back-to-school, but I promise we will be back with a ton of posts. Starting with this trend trend that has been popping up everywhere these past few weeks. Fall fashion is all about military chic! It’s combining the usual fall colours, like army green and brown but adding a bit of an edge with studs and camo. This trend can easily be incorporated into your fall wardrobe since all of the major stores are carrying this trend. I’ve already invested in a studded camo jacket and a studded army green vest… and I love them!

This is how I styled my army green studded vest from Zara:

My other favourite item is this Camo jacket with stud embellishments on the pockets (also from Zara):

To complete the perfect military chic look, pair your outfit with a pair of  cute combat boots (Found at Aldo).

Hope everyone enjoyed this quick post! Check back soon for more posts about beauty, fashion, and much more.

Leather Studded Kisses in The Sand: Fall 2012 Trend!

25 Aug

Hey everyone! So, it is sad to say that summer is coming to an end. However, on a brighter note this means my favorite season is right around the corner. I love fall and fall fashion trends never seem to disappoint. This fall 2012 season leather and studs are in! Studs are appearing on almost everything from shoes to jackets. Designers such as Christian Louboutin, Alexander McQueen and Prada were strutting down the runway with some studded shoes. Moreover, heavy on the leather, streamlined looks were the rage with designers such as DKNY, YSL, Pucci, etc.

I am loving the leather skirts and jeans that were showcased in the DKNY fall 2012 collection. Check out some more affordable options below!

Leather studded boots are also a great way to incorporate the  stud trend into your everyday fall outfit. Check out these leather studded combat boots from Steve Madden that I am in love with!

If the the black leather and studs is too heavy for your personal style, you can try the trend out in a lighter way with studded flats/loafers.

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.




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.



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.
