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?

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.

Nos encontramos en medio de la temporada otoño-invierno, lo sé, pero permítanme llevarlas por un paseo al futuro, a ese futuro cercano que, como todo en la industria de la moda, viene del pasado.

Les hablo de los “chunky heels”. Si bien los hemos visto por las pasadas temporadas asomarse tímidamente en las tiendas, no será hasta la primavera-verano 2014 que se impondrán con fuerza, según quedó evidenciado en el pasado New York Fashion Week, cuando la mayoría de los diseñadores le apostaron a este tipo de calzado para darle un descanso a los sexy, pero muchas veces incómodos stilettos.

Así los “chunky heels” regresan renovados de la década de 1960 para proveer comodidad y estabilidad a nuestros pies, pero sin sacrificar pulgadas de altura. Y es que este estilo de zapato hace que las piernas luzcan mucho más largas y estilizadas, por lo cual son ideales para mujeres de baja estatura.

Para la próxima temporada, los vemos tanto con plataformas como sin en ellas, en combinación de colores y texturas, en madera o forrados en piel y tela, y hasta con detalles en metal.

A continuación, les dejo con una muestra de los modelos que ya están disponibles en las tiendas Novus alrededor de toda la Isla y en su página web Novushoes.com.

Trend Alert: Get flat-form ready this summer

e181d680f3c8f13f_Flatforms-celebrities.xxxlarge_1

Sometimes it takes a bit of an open mind or simply being practical to deduce what the next big thing is. From movies to music and last but not least fashion it is all about the forecasting and figuring out what the public will like in the next 6-12 months. It is a risk since not everything appeals to the consumers. But what would life be without some hazard?

I’m a junkie for fads. Although they come and go rather quickly they are always fun and crazy to play with. Haven’t you heard the phrase “enjoy the moment”? I apply this phrase to everything in my life so why wouldn’t it apply to my closet? I mean you can always go all classy but I’d rather leave that to the play-it-safers. With that said I introduce to you the upbeat new shoe style: the flatform. Yes you read correctly that was not a grammatical error.

Can you imagine looking cool and fashionable while at your comfiest? This is heaven on earth. This trend has been trying to grow for a while but not until now it has really got the attention of the consumers eye. Fashion savvy celebrities like Rihanna, Jessica Alba and Elle Fanning are all sporting the trend on they’re everyday life. You can sport them to look fashionable out with your pals or to do your daily errands. It really doesn’t matter what you use them for but that you rock it while it lasts. In the future you can look back and say, “I’ve always had an awesome sense of style”.

Comodidad ante todo en el verano

summer portada

Si hay un tipo de calzado esencial para los días de verano, ese es definitivamente un par de “flats”.

Y es que esta temporada, son los zapatos favoritos de muchas para el desarrollo de actividades al aire libre, en las que la comodidad es lo más importante.

Ya sea para un día de campo, una cena en la playa al atardecer, un día de compras o simplemente para turistear, las sandalias, como las encuentras en la actualidad -en tonos metálicos, brillantes o neutrales y con piedras y aplicaciones-, complementarán tu “outfit” haciéndote lucir elegante y cómoda a la vez.

Ya sabemos que las “flats” lucen bien con casi todo tipo de piezas, pero en esta ocasión seleccioné el vestido maxi, otro de los “must have” del verano, para presentarle algunas ideas de cómo combinarlas.

A continuación les muestro algunos de los estilos disponibles en Novus y Novushoes.com.

Unas “flats” color bronce, como estas Etre, le darán balance a tu look con un vestido en “degradé” como el utilizado en la ilustración de arriba.
