Timeless looks 3′

In my style book there are two items that will never go out of style even when robots take over the world…….. the ankle length pants and the woolen round neck sweater.

So you can imagine to what levels a combi’ of both takes me.

My kind of Charm…

Accessories never get the hype they deserve… Is it because they are too small to notice?, maybe….

The charmed jewelry speaks volumes about an individual. I, love my bracelets chunky….. I love them too much that nothing in the market seems to get me, and so I have resulted into making my own .

Check out below for some ideas on how to have yours customized.

Of Heirloom lovers

Of the statements makers

 

Of the unorthodox thinkers

and of the sentimentalists

  1. The Thumbs up

grammy-awards-2016-red-carpet-ss10-atelier versace

Taylor Swift in Atelier Versace.  The crop top and high waist high slit skirt were not so much a show stopper, but the color combo is what brought the outfit to life. Orange and Fuchsia, I will definitely be trying that combo out.

kaley-cuoco-da605672-fc4a-4dd4-ab3f-0515951939bd in Naeem Khan

Kaley Cuoco in Naeem Khan jumpsuit. There is just something about white outfits. The more you look into Kaley’s outfit the more you fall in love with it. I like the detail in the outfit and the fact that it is revealing without revealing much.

florence-f013c3bd-30d5-4f2a-a2fd-78bace5cdb42 and the machine - Gucci

 Florence Welch. I love the outfit just because Florence is wearing it. This is so her. Twu’d have been a total drab if it was someone else.

keltie-knight-dc865281-6844-446e-a6d8-84592f3c68e7 in Calvin Klein

Keltie Knight in Calvin Klein. This is both appropriate and elegant. Well sewed, she toned down on the accessories and make up. Love it.

2. The Disappointments

ciara-grammys-red-carpet-2016

Ciara in Alexandre Vauthier. We did not for a second doubt that Ciara had a great bod. The outfit looks like a wrap around with knots, not flattering at all. looks like a dress I would make without a hustle and I do not know the first thing about making dresses. I am more than disappointed because she was in my 2015 fave list.

635911724040170823-AP-APTOPIX-The-58th-Annual-Grammy-Awards---Arrivals Andra Day

Andra Day in Michael Costello. How could a designer put his name on this. I know she designed it herself, but Costello seriously you let this be associated with you!!!

3e639235d77f0681387947e7b2b9c3 liz hernandez

Liz Hernandez in (I didn’t even care enough to get the designer’s name) . The height is unflattering for this particular dress. The us of satin does not do it justice either and the pleats look like they were not well thought of and make the dress look ill fitting.

IF

Carrie Underwood in Nicolas Jebran.  The sad part about this dress is that a lot of detail was put on the bust area and that made the dress fail. I do not mind the bottom part at all. Won’t blame her though for trying to remind us that she has boobs.

 The WTF’s

IF

Manika, Manika, Manika wtf!

US-GRAMMY-ARRIVALS

Dencia. There is something about this outfit that makes me weirdly happy.

IF

Z LaLa. This dress looks quite hazardous! Hope you made it home okay!

4. I see what you were going for but…..just leave it to the gurus

Suits are the hardest to pull off especially on a red carpet event. Zendaya and Demi are not cut out for this look.

5. We had a Kiki before the event and we decided on this look

The NYFW 2016 runways…

 Fashion Week, when a designer can dream beyond…and as much as most of the clothes that walk down the runway cannot be put down to the streets, it is always amazing to see how far our designer’s minds go.

Check out some of the looks that got to me and I think stealing some of the ideas will be quite rewarding

Well, Hello….socks 1′

The easiest socks to wear are black or dull colored knee high socks. For a first timer I would suggest a run with them, just for a feel.

They are more like boots (although more classy than boots if you ask me) and given that they are black you can simply pair them up with just about anything…

And the sneakers too

Basic rule, Go short, long outfits and socks are a faux pas although there are ways to wear them with pants, I will be posting on that soon.

Socks pundits I will be posting on the real socks style.

Till then have a go dearies!!!

Yes….Floral shirts!

So today I looked in my closet and suddenly felt inspired by my floral shirt that I am always careful to wear. I mean you know those things that are either too beautiful or just too ugly for anyone to even fathom. I like those kind of things, middle ground has never been my place.

Check out how you can style a floral shirt!

Go all vintage.                                                                                                                   Oh my! Don’t I just love this look.

8e9a70ce35c0f4f2d7aea31275d49f29 Gingham Style

This is not a look  for the faint-hearted.                                                                              Pair it up with a print – gingham, stripes, floral but be careful….you do not want to look ridiculous, as I said you have to have guts to try this look but know when it pays off, it really pays off.

floral-blouse-h-m-blouse-internacionale-skirt-studded-heels-f-f-heels

See that floral on floral, Ensure that both florals are not too heavy because then it becomes too much.

Floral on print floral. That is what I call a bold move. This is what I mean by paying off!

The Denim! Hmmmm Of course if those booty shorts work for you, go for it. Denim can go with just about any floral print.

Match y march y. A safe option                                                                                        I am not the biggest fan of match y stuff but this works for one who is not sure of how to work the print.

Floral on Black….                                                                                                          You can always pair it with a dark plain color….you know the browns the blacks, the navys, or the neutrals

See its not that difficult……I hope you will not steer away from the floral vintage section next time you are out shopping for your wardrobe.

Gingham 2015

One print that I appreciated in 2015 is the Gingham. Top fashion houses did not disappoint either in presenting the fine print at the elle spring 2015

Where there are no rules!

One thing I appreciate about bohemian is that they dare to go where no man has been.

The style is unorthodox. There is no in between with it, you either really love it or really hate it.

That is why is Gillian Zinser and her doppelganger Ivy Sullivan(90210) will always be at the top of my list.      Celebrity style crush!
