Pretty in Pinks and Blues

Malan Breton used tons of luminous and vibrant colored fabrics in his Spring/Summer 2016 collection at Style Fashion Week in New York. The pinks and blues and even the navys and blacks in the menswear shined through. I really enjoyed his variety of dress silhouettes he chose to show. And his use of silk shows […]

Color Inspiration: Grey

This season grey is going to be huge. And not just one shade of grey–all shades! I saw this picture of icicles and felt a surge of inspiration. While we won’t be seeing icicles for another month (fingers crossed), it is just another example of how nature can be a source of inspiration. So how […]

The Five Most Important Questions

We’ve all been there–standing in front of an overpacked closet with nothing to wear. How does this even happen? Truth be told, everyone benefits from a well edited closet, right? And everyone is capable of having one! But how do you get there? The answer is simple–try your clothes on. Stand in front of a […]

Color Inspiration: Magnolia

I find a lot of color inspiration simply from just browsing around online. I saw this pictures of magnolias and it made me think of how to transition pale pinks into the Fall. Adding darker pinks and purples are just the way to do it. Then, it got me into thinking about how lovely it […]

For the Guys: Dating Attire

A common issue for guys who are new to the dating scene is, “what do I wear?”. You want to look put together and not sloppy. Now, no matter what your style is–anywhere from conservative to edgy–there is always one rule to follow… MAKE SURE YOUR CLOTHES FIT! It doesn’t matter what clothes you have, […]

Color Inspiration: Orange & Fuchsia

If there was ever a color combination that makes me happy, it would be orange and fuchsia. The first time I was mesmerized by the combination was at Monique Lhuillier at New York Fashion Week Spring 2014. While I love seeing it in a wardrobe combination, even seeing it in something as simple as a sign […]

Summer Fashion in Fall?!

Fall is a great time to do a closet edit. Summer clothes are getting stored until next year and it’s time to start bringing out your sweaters. This is the time to decide what needs to be gone and what needs to be replaced. But before you pack up your all summer items, take a look […]

Angels and Demons

Angel Sanchez used such diverse fabrics at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week for his Fall/Winter 2015 runway show. Fabrics such as leather, vinyl, neoprene, and wool made for a great “experiment”. It seems that he looks at evening wear in a more modern way, using 70’s inspiration and mixing it with today’s culture. The tailoring is flawless. All […]

Hidden Treasures

Some say that thrifting and searching for vintage items can be therapeutic. After all, they don’t call it “retail therapy” for nothing. It’s the thrill of the chase to find those beautiful discarded vintage pieces. The ones that once they are gone, they are gone. But since you can’t save every vintage piece that is […]
