The Higher The Better

Long maxi skirts have been an obsession of mine since many seasons ago. I love how they can transition from summer to spring to fall and now even winter? Yeah you read it right. Pair up with some tights and boots and you just transitioned to fall/winter. Heels/flats/combat boots/any boots..it can work! Starting off with a basic color is best because you can then wear any top with it. Patterned slit skirts are fun too, just pair with a basic top or fitted jacket.

Here are some looks that might inspire you.

All Sheer Everything

Lately, I have been into sheer black more than ever! Even though I am and will always be a huge fan of vibrant colors there is something about this new trend that I am just loving. Black is always a classic choice but sheer black just oozes a mix between edgy and elegance. The long sheer skirts are everywhere right now and I love the versatility of them. Day or night/ boot or heel/ casual t-shirt/ fancy blouse.. possibilities are endless! My favorite!

Here are some of the naturalista fashionista’s rockin’ their sheer black.. Inspired? .. I think so! ( Olivia Palermo is Killin it’ with her all sheer black ensemble and pop of turquoise jewelry. The slick back parted hairstyle and red lip is just a cherry on top of this fab. outfit. )

 

Here are some options to incorporate in your wardrobe to achieve this look.. Remember one item at a time then mix and match pieces for a less match-y outfit. (It’s all black anyway) 😉  Pair with a black ankle boot for an edgy feel or a sleek high heel for a more elegant feel…And you’re all Sheer Black Everything !

Miranda Kerr reveals Victoria’s Secret’s Gem

Yes, it’s about that time.. the highly anticipated November VS Fashion Show is just around the corner and why not spark up the enthusiasm with the once a year extravagant bejewelled bra. Dripping in precious gems and weighing  about 40 lbs., the 2011 Secret Fantasy Treasure Bra is definitely my fantasy. Ridiculous, in just so .. SO many ways! Embellished with nearly 3,400 precious gems – Total carat weight: 279 ct. – $2,500,000. I’d personally rather wear those carat’s on TOP of my clothes but hey….

Versace meets H&M, A Match Made in Heaven

 Well, it’s finally here..almost..the 50 piece collection of the VersacexH&M lookbook features dresses, skirts, leggings, scarves, handbags, shoes, belts, jewelry, etc. The palette is characteristically Versace: bright pinks, metallic sheathes, black cocktail frocks with gold embellishment, gold embellishment on everything, cutouts, leather, studs, Hawaiian and leopard prints and much, much more. Most of the pieces are not as RTW as I would think but overall, the collection seems like a perfect blend. Still, keeping with the Versace palette yet making it more chic friendly. I really like the dresses and adore the prints! It seems like there is a great variety with all the different pieces and accessories. This is definitely an exciting collabo!

Here are some of the pieces from the lookbook: (1st dress is DEF. on my wish list)  :

The Essentialism of Color

I get inspired by art daily. I live for color and compare life to art. (About me) 😉 Visually stimulated by colors, this post is all of that. Sometimes, I find it’s nice to take some time out and just appreciate the beauty of art. After all, just like fashion  it surrounds us, embodies us.  These are some images I happened to stumble upon while online and they made me smile. Enjoy!

“I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way- things I had no words for.”- Georgia O’Keeffe

“Art is unquestionably one of the purest and highest elements in human happiness. It trains the mind through the eye, and the eye through the mind. As the sun colors flowers, so does art color life.”- John Lubbock

 

Leather Glam

One of my current trend obsessions: Leather Sleeves. I am all about leather jackets especially the bombers but there is something subtle and sexy about a hint of leather on the sleeves. Some of the fab celebs are rockin’ this trend and I got inspired myself! Of course, you can go out and buy an ultra glam jacket or think creatively. This year I am rockin’ the fur vest all the way, so why not put it on top of a leather jacket.(see pic. below)  1. You are Leather sleeved glam! 2. Layers upon layers are so winter hot 3. Warmth!

This is my recent leather sleeve look:
