Style: Expressing inner “Piece”

Looking back to past trends of my generation, a couple rather terrifying images pop up in my mind. Of course when our parents were dressing us it was bibs, over sized shorts, and hair scrunchies. Then it was the Aeropostale monkey sweat suits, shirts, and jeans. From there it turned into the Abercrombie Polos that everyone sported while going to the middle school dances, while everyone awkwardly made out with each other. When I reflect on the past of my generations style trend throughout the 20 years of my life, …

Flowers and Fashion

As spring approaches. I am not only excited for the warm weather and beautiful flowers; I am also very excited for all of the new fashion that is upon us.  As spring arrives so do new trends.  Some trends that I know I am going to be wearing this spring are cloudy pastels, bright colors, floral textures, and sheer.
In Chanel’s 2012 ready-to-wear spring collection, the models were dressed in many of these trends.  My favorite is (left) a model wearing a two tone pastel pink textured top.  The top looks …

Head for the Trenches!

Always “dress” to impress!

As fall draws closer and summer begins to fade away there are so many great styles that come along with the new season.  One of my favorites in particular is paring dresses and skirts with tights.  Even though the warm summer air is fading away there is no reason to hide all your dresses and skirts.  Try pairing these pieces with a cute pair of black, grey, or even fishnet tights.  This is a great way to stay warm but chic at the same time.  Pairing a dress with tights …

Is Nude the New Black?

Gone are the days of the simple black patent leather heels. To be quite honest, they’re  a bit passe,  and frankly, just plain old boring. It’s out with the black and in with the nude. While the color is substituted, classiness is not, my friends. Unlike black, the nude heels can match with any color, except, well, another nude that isn’t the same tone. In the workplace or out, nude heels may very well become one of your best friends this summer. And of course, Michael Kors did it just …

Elegant and Edgy

It’s no secret that I have an absolute love for fashion accessories. I’ve scoured stores from London to New York City for the perfect accessory to jazz up the little black dress or take a simple pair of jeans and t-shirt from blah to wow!  And one of my favorite finds this season is the faux snakeskin clutch. This hot pink clutch from Design Collective NY.com is my favorite combination of elegant and edgy and is workable day and night. Its versatility and uniqueness attracted me. It screams cocktails in …
