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.

All Hail The Queen

082414-MTV-VMAs-Jennifer-Lopez-428

The fun award season is upon us. First off there were the TCA and now the most iconic music awards of the year: the MTV Video Music Awards. They are distinguished by the random moments and crazy events that have marked the history of the ceremony. Everyone always expects the unexpected and as anticipated they delivered, from wardrobe malfunction to a little bit of twerking. And let’s not forget the amazing fashion statements.

I absolutely loved how someway the looks took us back to the 90’s. First off upcoming artist Charli XCX performed during the red carpet with a feather cover up that just screamed Cher Horowitz. Following was Katy Perry who honored Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake’s 2001 all denim ensemble. The difference? This time Katy left it to Versace to design the custom made gown. To finalize the “throwback-fashion” Mrs. Amber Rose dared channel Rose McGowan 1999 look from Laura Dewitt that left very little to the imagination. Is it me or are we going back to the Clueless years? Yes please!

On the other hand, profuse stars choose classic all black looks. Some of these included Miley Cyrus, Kendall Jenner, Becky G and the cast of Orange Is The New Black. All of them looked stunning in the infinite color. Going the other way Rita Ora decided to go all red in a Jessica Rabbit gown that made her look voluptuous and sensual.

By now you may be guessing why the article is titled All hail the Queen right? Well personally there was one look that stole the show. It was so astonishing that it deserved a special tribute. The fit, the color, the fabric it was just perfection. It was non-other than Jennifer Lopez who wore a silver jaw-dropping Charbel Zoe dress. She was officially the queen of the red carpet. The cutout shimmering gown was simply spectacular. Now the real question is what was Casper Smart (also present at the VMA’s) thinking the whole night?

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.

Dream Night

 

 

NVS_Cat.Pag.RazzleDazzle

 

 

Every woman has special occasions throughout her lifetime that open or in some cases close certain chapters. One must enter or exit every situation with the outmost luxuriousness. It all starts with the commencement of interest in the way we look and the way we portray ourselves to the world. But there’s just two special occasions that came to my mind where I wanted to look flawless. My wedding day and of course PROM! I mean who isn’t excited for prom? Prom is the biggest event of your school years that you get to go all out. There’s the music, the date and of course the outfit which is the most important of all.

First, you need to pick up the dress that of course has to be one that will make heads turn. But then the real difficulty comes your way: finding the perfect pair shoes to match. This can be tricky since everyone is on the hunt. When you think you found “the one”, that pair that you can’t go to prom without , there comes the sales associate to tell you some other girl just bought the last size 7 they had in stock. Just like that your dreams are stolen and the perfect night has become the worst nightmare.

It may take time but with a little help the perfect prom outfit can be unraveled. I love looking at all the girls and how they put together the cutest of ensembles for that special night. Here are some options you can pick for that unforgettable moment. Remember this is a once in a lifetime shot you have to impress your peers so make it count and leave them breathless.

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?

Award Season is Back

Slide1

Finally the most anticipated time of the year in fashion (excluding fashion week) has come. Award season just kicked off this past Sunday with the Golden Globes. I’ve been so excited the whole week waiting for the red carpet and to see the big stars bring the house down with their fashion ensembles. I have to admit I was a little disappointed. Some were ok and others were just so wrong. I have no idea what the stylists were they thinking!

This occasion is one to go all out, in other words go big or just don’t go at all. I was completely looking forward to Emma Watson I love her style on and off the red carpet but I just can’t seem to get why would she wear pants under the dress, plus have them showing on the back it wasn’t sexy and it didn’t look classy. We have to give her props for trying though. Now let’s talk about Lupita Nyong’o’s amazing red dress designed by Ralph Lauren and how she totally rocked a cape on the carpet. She looked absolutely flawless; everything about her look was breathtaking.

One of my personal favorites was Sofia Vergara I have to admit she sticks to a certain kind of silhouette and cut but it never gets old, and how is that possible with Zac Posen designing your dress? Moreover, the star of “The Wolf of Wallstreet” Margot Robbie had and amazing Gucci white dress that made her look like a brand new Barbie doll.

Pregnant stars studded the show with the glow only a mother could project but one stood out: Olivia Wilde. I usually don’t like her style but for an expectant mother she looked glamorous in an old fashion Hollywood style emerald dress. Kerry Washington and Drew Barrymore were among the other mommy-to-be stars; let’s just say I wouldn’t choose any of those outfits to show my cute baby belly. Other stars like Kate Beckinsale studded in shimmer dresses that turned heads.

In my words there was good, there was ugly, and there was bad. The ones that were good looked flawless. Now they have a second shot at the SAG awards to amuse, till then!
