The White Walkers

We usually strive to have an overall good look when we step out to play or work. Now isn’t that just being a conformist, a basic good look with no one to really impress. What if I told you that you could be an all star down the avenue and have anyone compliment you on how good you look?

It mostly depends on key items that we add to an overall look. Some of us have a special talent but others can acquire the ability to look good without any effort. Shoes are always hands down an accessory that transforms any outfit. Just give it a simple try.

Given the season fads come and go with some leaving a little something behind. Maybe your personal style is not all that funky but we can fix that right away. Just add on a really funky heel or flat that’s so in you will be remembered by it. This time it’s no so much about the shoe but more about the sole. White sole shoes are so back that not even being on the cast of Clueless would make you feel more fashionable.

All sorts of fashion bloggers are infusing their ensembles with this sort of style and giving it the funkiness that sometimes we may lack. Below are some examples on how you can wear them and some styles available for sale. Don’t go over to the boring side on 2015, just take the leap and be fearless.

Risky Business

michelle-williams-gallery

Fashion is all about taking risks and finding a way to implement trends into your personal style. Most of us tend to rely on our safe zone. What do I mean by this? Most of the people wait until a trend has gone almost into the masses to implement it when we should really be fashion innovators or opinion leaders when it comes to a trend. This takes us to the latest fashion ititem: the leopard print sneaker.

Animal print has always been a classic look for as long as I can remember. Everyone has a different opinion on how to wear it so that it looks classy and fashionable. I personally love it and think it looks good as an accessory. It gives any ensemble a certain edge that makes you look fierce and sexy. When you mix this type of pattern with a very cool sneaker you get the ultimate fashion shoe.

Fashion bloggers and celebrities from Michelle Williams to Usher are sporting this edgy look on their day-to-day style. You can wear them with totally different styles from a very relaxed look with distressed jeans to a wild leather skirt or even a preppy look with a khaki skinny pant and a fitted blazer. If you still can’t seem to find yourself wearing this trend look at these photographs on how to style yourself and believe me you will be getting them on your next trip to the mall.

Dare to Bloom: Novus Spring 2014 Ad Campaign

NVS_LAT-MUJER-HELLO.FUN

Most of us are visual individuals. We feel more attracted towards something when we can see it. Colors have the potential to give meaning to anything this is why they play such an important part in our daily lives. Playing with them depending on the season can be so much fun, furthermore when you can take that message across to the consumer.

The established shoe store Novus has unveiled the new Spring 2014 campaign and the first thing that comes to mind when you see each ad is happiness. It’s colors and graphics take you to that place you see in the picture where everything is perfect. Focusing on the Spring 2014 Pantone color palette as the background and letting the product speak for itself the campaign is subtle yet clever. It gives you a sense of lightness and freshness while leaving wanting more. The colors are splendid and the mixture of graphic, texts and product gives a marvelous outcome.

Each ad has a short message that goes to the point and creates a harmony between what it says and what it shows.  To this you add the brilliant graphics and illustrations created by Puertorrican Gerardo Cloquell whom did a great job conceiving backgrounds that don’t compete with the focal point yet catch your attention and compliment the final product.

The name given to this new campaign is none other than: Dare to Bloom which goes perfectly with what it brings us. Once again they have impressed us (or at least I can talk for myself) by revealing an amazing campaign that not only exceeds expectation but also builds up excitement to what will be next. Playful, fun and dare I say with absolute refreshing styles that will blow you away so hold on!

Less is more (sometimes)

At occasions (and I include myself) we have a specific perspective of what a fashionable ensemble should look like and lets be honest most of the times we envision it with a pair of high heels or wedges. Why do we limit ourselves to this? Every single time I want to go out or simply dress up to run errands and obviously look good I put on a pair of wedges to feel comfy and up to date. When I come to think about it in which magazine or who told me fashionable meant being uncomfortable? I’ve never read that anywhere and I’m sure neither have you. We probably have heard that in order to look beautiful or presentable we should engage in some kinda pain or discomfort but come on this is the 21st century and us ladies wear pants so why should we be submissive of such lie?

Ballerina flats came back as a fad and stayed as a statement. The deviant fact is the lack of benefit we’ve taken from it. Most of us just wear them to work, even worse we associate them into a none-dress category in which we feel beneath any girl who’s rocking the same outfit as us but in heels. I have to be honest there is nothing like an impressive wedge or a pair of classic stilettos but we don’t have to feel like that. Given the right style with the right balance in your outfit you can look just as marvelous and no need to say 100% more comfortable than the girl with blisters (yuck!) all over her feet trying to look all Carrie Bradshaw day and night. This way when night comes and the door to your favorite venue opens you’ll be ready to rock the sky high option or vice versa.

Sometimes all we need is a little input from someone else or seeing an actual example of what I’m trying to portray to you. Ballerina flats are classy, girly and some can even be sexy. You can go classic black or girly pink, with studs or plain Jane the option is up to you. I say we take full advantage of this and look fab while we can go running from place to place or be standing all night long. After all we have to take under consideration Carrie is a fictional character and Victoria Beckham is well Victoria Beckham not all of us are cut out to be runway ready 24/7.

Be Bold or Just Be Boring

_MG_7855

What would you rather be outrageous and spontaneous or simple and predictable? Maybe we’re taking it to the extremes but when it comes to how you live for life shouldn’t we take it seriously and to the extreme? Being predictable will never take us anywhere. That’s why projecting oneself across the mirror is so important. You can see your own reflection and if you look into depth you can kinda figure out what others see. More than that (obviously) you can see the amazing shoes your wearing (duh!) and then you can really walk with confidence without depending on being simple or amazing.

Jeffrey Campbell is known for his intense designs that go to radical terms and make you look twice. They are not for everyone but if you have good taste and know what it is to have some fun you will at least fall in love with one of the designs even if you don’t dare walk in them. Even when they mostly include sky-high platforms and heels this collection there’s something for everyone. We have platforms, open boots, flats and even some delicate heels.

With spring coming to an end and summer just across the street we may think about bright colors but not necessarily. This collection is full of earth hues that will compliment any outfit from colorful to white to even dark tones. This makes it even better since you will obtain a pair that you can wear all year long even though they have a fresh look that calls for summer you can play with the look and make them turn all around.

Reality is I like risks and statement pieces that maybe not everyone will wear but most definitely they can acknowledge them and appreciate them. The real questions to all fashion lovers are: Do you dare? Can you handle it? Are you simple or are you a risk taker?

Detalles que enamoran

Corazon

Hay quienes, el Día de San Valentín, regalan flores, chocolates y globos, pero hay detalles más prácticos que las mujeres podemos considerar muy románticos.

Con esto en mente, he preparado una lista de opciones para obsequiar este jueves, cuando celebramos el día del amor y la amistad, que con seguridad arrancaran suspiros, por parte de tu chica.

Accesorios
Una pulsera en piedras, un collar y brazalete llamativos y hasta un llavero chic como los que muestro abajo, pueden convertirse en el regalo perfecto.

Carteras
Qué mujer no las adora. Para ir a la segura, puedes optar por un bolso grande o una clutch, como las mostradas aquí, que mezclan colores sólidos con estampados, y le dará más opciones a ella para combinar. Igualmente, el rojo, siempre es una apuesta segura en esta fecha, por ser considerado el color del amor.

Plataformas
Las chicas las adoran porque añaden varias pulgadas de estatura y, a la vez, lucen bien con casi todo tipo de prendas, desde vestidos y pantalones hasta faldas en todos los largos.

Flats
Su tu media naranja es de las que prefiere la comodidad, opciones como las que te muestro abajo, le encantarán.

Menorquinas
Son el calzado del momento, y por su comodidad y simplicidad, es uno de los zapatos más vendidos en Puerto Rico, desde hace varios meses. Seguro tu chica adorará tener un par de abarcas en rojo, y que estés al tanto de ese dato.
