OOTD| Chambray Everyday

When I get a piece of clothing that’s versatile, comfortable and goes with just about anything, I will wear it everyday.  This chambray shirt for example, I’ve literally worn it everyday for a whole week when I first got it.  Do you have a piece of clothing that you just can’t stop wearing?

Since this top has a high neckline, I love that you see some skin and bra with the peekaboo mesh detail.

Hope everyone is off to a great start this week. Happy Monday.

I’m what you might call a Zara junkie.  The prices are affordable, the pieces are in trend and the look is always classy.  Expect more OOTD from me!

Since the announcement of Alexander Wang becoming the new Creative Director of Balenciaga, fashionistas, tastemakers, trendsetters alike were all salivating to find out what this union had in store. Above is just a taste of what’s to come and it’s just enough to leave us salivating for more.  The sleek shape and classic design is a major detour from their signature motorcycle bag but it just maybe the reboot that the company has been looking for.

What are your thoughts?

Fashion Splurges| Colette by A. Wang

I signed up for Moda Operandi and in doing so they sent me a $250 credit to use on their site.

What’s great about this site is that instead of waiting for stuff to go on sale, they let you purchase items before it even hits the stores.  You pay a deposit, which is 50% of the retail price of the item(s) you are purchasing, and then you pay the other 50% when they ship… kinda like when you hire me!
Meet the new addition to my collection.  Colette.

NYFW SS12 | Proenza Schouler

I had the esteemed pleasure of attending an official  fashion show for New York Fashion Week!

I must say  Proenza Schouler’s show was quite the show to attend.   The nation, and the world’s, biggest tastemakers and trendsetters were in attendance.  From  Anna Wintour of Vogue ,  celebrity stylist turned reality star turned designer Rachel Zoe,  Creative Director of Elle Joe Zee,  mane-mogul Frederic Fekkai , singer-songwriter Alicia Keys, world class VJ turned style icon Alexa Chung to mega mogul Pharrell.  You can’t help but feel inspired being surrounded by these fashionable people.  
As for the collection?  The designers outdid themselves… The collection was exquisite and workmanship was stunning. 

Now on to the pics…
Getting ready for the show!

Mila Kunis has been my IT girl since Black Swan. Such a beauty!

The dress is ok for me but I can’t get over Celine’s figure!

By far, my favorite of the night from the makeup all the way down the shoes. STELLAR! Overall look was very sleek, sexy, and not overdone.

The dress was a bit lackluster for the red carpet. Makeup didn’t go with the look and the hair looked like she rolled out of bed. A black smokey eye would’ve been better suited.

4screen_shot_2011-02-28_at_12

Great actress but does anyone ever remember her having been on the best dressed list?

5screen_shot_2011-02-28_at_12

Love Reese but not a fan of the dress nor the hair but love the makeup.

NYC Fashion Week!

New York Fashion Week Fall 2011 is in full swing and I have been following the shows religiously on Style.com

I’ve been paying attention to most of the hair and makeup looks for  the F2011 ready-to-wear collections  and some of the trending looks for fall season are thick eye brows,  exaggerated smokey eyes or fire engine red lips… not all together of course.  Now remember, since fashion is always a few seasons ahead the darker color palettes are in line with the fall and winter seasons.

BHLDN is BYND!

Anthropologie’s new bridal line  BHLDN (pronounced: beholden)  is BYND!!!! (pronounced: BEYOND).  

The vintage inspired line is every bit romantical and whimsical in all it’s designs.  With it’s tea length cuts, bias cut pleats  and cement colors, each dress is oozing with style and flare and even more edge.  This line is better suited for your style-maven-fashionista bride  and definitely not your traditional bride.  
For hair and makeup looks this season, I see a lot of voluminous updos (think lots of tease), smokey eyes or bright red lips being paired with these dreamy gowns.

Chanel love!

If I had to pick my favorite fashion house, it has been, still is and forever will be  Chanel.  From their quilted handbags, classic tweed jackets and, most of all, their beaute products, Chanel can not do any wrong in my eyes.   

It seems like it was just yesterday I was an artist for them.  It was then with their uber pigmented colors, fragrant skincare and illuminating foundations that turned me into a true believer.  So it comes as no surprise that I fell in love with the makeup for their SP2011 show.  The looks were so edgy without being over the top.  The exaggerated eyes,  glowy cheeks and kissable lips… so my style :)
