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.

Gladiator Heaven

IMG_2810jidasd

Trends come and go, as we all know. Some of them tend to just have a tranquility phase in which some of us may forget about them. But the joy we feel when we see pieces come back in style and we can either get them out of our closets or buy our favorites. In this case it’s all about the gladiator sandal. It’s a remarkable accessory that makes an ensemble grand, even the simplest one.

Ever since they first came out I was astonished by how imposing they looked. For some reason I never got the chance to buy them. I never could find the one I loved in my size and so the trend started to wear off. When I saw that they came back I felt determined to find the perfect one. This time I wouldn’t let anything in the way of my fascinating sandal and myself. So the hunting began. I did find the perfect ones and I am utterly in love with them.

The thing about them is that they can be tricky to style. But no worries I’ll give you a few tips so nothing can stop you. You have to show a little or maybe a lot of leg in order to wear them correctly. You could style them with high-waist shorts or a pretty little dress. The style I like the most is a boho-chic kinda look that gives them the perfect exposure. Here are some pictures of how I like to wear them, how will you?

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.

Pasarela en Cannes

Image

El glamour se trasladó esta semana a la edición 67 del Festival de Cine de Cannes, en Francia, donde actrices como Blake Lively, Nicole Kidman, Cate Blanchett, Zhang Ziyi, Zoe Saldaña y Paz Vega se desplazaron con encanto y mucha elegancia tanto en la alfombra roja como en la sesión de fotos para la prensa.

Tanto el primer como el segundo día de la jornada cinematográfica, que dura 11 días, fue Lively quien capturó todas las miradas, por encima de la propia Kidman, quien ha lucido como la princesa que interpreta en la polémica cinta Grace of Monaco.

De Gucci Première, la “Serena” de Gossip Girl lució radiante el primer día en Cannes con un vestido de falda plisada color vino, para el cual se recogió el cabello en una larguísima trenza despeinada. Combinó su atuendo con unas sanadalias Casadei. 

Al siguiente día la espigada actriz se destacó con un Chanel Couture azul claro con detalles de brillo, que combinó con unos stilettos puntiagudos blancos con taco en escarcha, de Sophia Webster.

Durante el día, Lively fue captada, de camino a su aparición en el programa Le Grand Journal, con un traje corto floreado de Giambattista Valli, ocasión para la cual Saldaña también resaltó con un vestido corto que simula dos piezas, en encajes Chantilly blanco y negro, de la casa Valentino

A continuación, te presentamos a otras de las mejores vestidas en Cannes, en el inicio del festival y algunos modelos del calzado con que combinaron sus atuendos.

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!

Lacoste run the streets of NYFW

010_LACOSTE_FW14-15_NYFS_First_Row-_Cara_Santana_Jesse_Metcalfe_Joe_Jonas_Joe_Jonas_guest_Colton_Haynes

Is that time of the year, NYFW has come our way once again. I love New York fashion week it just feels so much more like home. Don’t get me wrong I’m amused by all of the designer houses and how amazing fashion is but being an American there’s something so much fonder when you see your peers persevere in a world so difficult and competitive. I seek brands that give me that Oh-la-la but I also love those designs that make you feel comfortable and give you a sense of belonging and familiarity. One of the brands that can describe that with more than a couple of sentences is Lacoste.

Last Saturday they unveiled the Autumn/Winter 2014 collection returning to they’re roots and showing off a more sporty collection concentrating on a more monochromatic and simple style. I absolutely love the classic look they achieved with this new collection. The show was star-studded with celebrities all over the place looking forward to see what the brand would bring. From Joe Jonas to heartthrob Jesse Metcalf dressed in head to toe Lacoste. Bella Thorne was also there looking glamorous in a neutral crop top and pencil skirt. With guests and fashion that kills like that who wouldn’t want to have a front row sit at a show like this?

Moreover, let’s talk street fashion. This time of year the trends are on the runways and out on the streets. Spotted, street style gurus rocking Lacoste during NYFW. It feels perfect to say that Lacoste footwear run the streets of NYFW. Here are a couple of pictures of how some very stylish peeps hit the pavement in style. Either preppy or with a more classic ensemble they all manage to complete a perfect outfit with a cherry on top (Lacoste). How would you wear them?
